Leviticus (Program #16) -The Sin Offering Christ for the Sins of God’s People (2)

Leviticus 4:2 speaks of the sin of ignorance, whereas some version translated unintentional sin.  God’s remedy in the Old Testament was the sin offering. Today, we  commit sins unintentionally or inadvertently.  In fact often times the very thing that we determine not to do we end up doing and doing them repeatedly.  Why does this occur even to the most spiritually advanced?  Of course we know that in Christ we are forgiven but still the utter frustration and discouragement that we feel. How many times have we prayed “Lord how long will I continue to do this?”.  But we hope that our fellowship today will be a much practical help to all of God’s seekers as we look at the sin offering in Leviticus and also its New Testament application.

Exodus (Program #174) – The Erection of the Tabernacle – God’s Side and Our Side, Two beginnings, Moses, The Need for Reality

In the final chapter of Exodus we see the people of God carrying out His plan and erecting the tabernacle, His dwelling place.  The completion of this work brings in a two-fold presence of God’s glory.  First it covered the tabernacle or tent of meeting as a cloud outwardly and then it filled the tabernacle within.  God’s House brings man into contact with God’s glory.

Exodus (Program #171) – Moses Stay With God

After 40 days and 40 nights with God on Mount Sinai, Moses was instructed on how to begin building the tabernacle, God’s dwelling place with man.  But twice in Exodus chapter 24 and again in chapter 35 the Lord cautions even warns Moses and the people not to begin working for Him without first enjoying the Sabbath rest.  Is this just an oddity of the Old Testament dispensation or is this a real and meaningful exhortation for us, God’s New Testament believers?  We will explore the real Sabbath today.

Exodus (Program #170) – Moses Stay With God – Donkey, Lamb, Bringing the First Fruits to God, Not Boiling a Kid in Mother’s Milk

It has been marvelous, the reason is that we have seen Christ Himself in a wonderful way, unveiled for our experience for the carrying out of God’s economy.  When we see such a Christ in relation to our experience and God’s economy, the situation in our reading and study of the Word truly become wonderful.

Today we come to chapter 34.  This is a chapter where once again the Lord gives Moses the tablets containing the commandments.  But there are a couple of other matters that we need to look at.

Exodus (Program #168) – Moses Stay With God – Recovery of a Broken Covenant, Warning Concerning Idolatry, The Lord’s Promise

Most of us know the story of the great sin of Israel at Mount Sinai as Moses is coming down the mountain with the tablets containing the ten commandments.  The people get fully caught in idolatry even gross sin.  Moses reflecting God’s own indignation smashes the tablets containing the law, deal sternly with the people.  What follows this well-known account is very fascinating, yet it’s usually overlooked when the story is told.

Exodus (Program #163) – The Breaking of the Law – Idolatry, Self-Beautification, Mixture in Worship

We all know that Moses received the commandments of God on Mount Sinai in stone tablets.  Yet before Moses could even get down the mountain to give the commandments to the people, the people had already grossly broken the very commandments that Moses was carrying in his hands.  We know how disappointed, even angry that Moses became, but what about God?  Did He not see this coming?  Was He also surprised and angered by this sin as Moses was?

Exodus (Program #69) – Sundry Ordinances of the Law

We are all familiar with commandments and ordinances.   It seems everywhere we turn, we’re met by these rules and regulations.  The same is true in the latter part of Exodus where we find many ordinances and commandments.  But have you ever seen the sweetness of these commandments of God?  You’d want to stay with us for today’s life study of the Bible, featuring the ministry of Watchman Nee and Witness Lee.

The genuine ministry of the New Testament is not a miraculous things produced in a short period of time.  It requires much preparation involving the cross, and the spirit in the context of proper Body life.  This comes to mind because the central human figure in Exodus is Moses.  We realize how extensive was the time given to his preparation.  This word preparation is rich in spiritual significance.  more…

Exodus (Program #66) – The Ordinances of the Law Concerning the Worship of God

The first half of Exodus is full of wonderful stories of many miracles that God accomplished for His people as He led them out of Egypt and brought them through the wilderness.  Accordingly, many Christians have little interest in Exodus after chapter 14.  But the second half of this book unveils the details of God’s intention and His ultimate desire for all of His people and the riches of His full salvation are covered in these chapters.  To miss them is to be robbed of the riches of His full revelation.

Many Christians may not even realized that the entire book of Exodus is a book that unveils God’s salvation in full.  All the great stories in the early chapters are popular in Sunday school and occasionally in Bible studies.  We really don’t want to ignore the last half of the book.  What are the major items revealed in the lesser known side of Exodus?

Exodus (Program #65) – The Veil Over the Ministry of Condemnation and Death

When Moses received the commandment of God for His people, his face was shining as a reflection of God’s glory and grace.  Yet when apostle Paul refers back to the event in his second epistle to the Corinthians, he call that ministry, a ministry of condemnation and death.  How does something full of God’s glory and grace become an instruction of condemnation and death?   You will not want to miss today’s life study of the Bible with Witness Lee.

To help us get into this message, we need to consider a couple of passages in Scripture in Old Testament portion from Exodus 34 and the New Testament section from 2 Corinthians.  This comparison is going to be very interesting.

Exodus (Program #52) – The Law Being the Living Word of God Infusing His Substance Into His Loving Seekers

Moses the man of God met with God on the mountain of God for 40 days.  During that time God gave him the commandments for the people.  But when he came down from the mountain he had something more than just ten commandments inscribed on two tablets of stone; he was a man who was thoroughly infused with God’s element.

This is our second of the thirty programs that are going to be devoted to this matter of the law.  I said that almost reluctantly that our listeners would think “my goodness thirty programs devoted to the law!”  But what we are saying in these early ones and it will multiply as we go on it’s just one marvelous interpretation after another.  This is really a classic message in a classic portion of this ministry.  The subject that we’ve come to today specifically is God’s giving the commandments to Moses in Exodus chapter 20. This is going to go far beyond our natural concept concerning the law.
