Leviticus (Program #8) – The Meal Offering Christ for the Satisfaction of God’s People Enjoyed together with God (1)

What is it to worship God?  Well, for man’s side it is obvious worship takes many form and it is practiced in countless ways with all manner of rituals.  But what about from God’s side.  Does the Bible reveal what God is looking for in real genuine worship?  To see this more clearly we really should go back to the Old Testament books like Leviticus where elaborate details are given to us in the form of the offerings that took place in the Tabernacle and later on in the Temple.  Of course the age of the offerings have long since passed but the reality of these offerings must be the focus of all our worship even today.  This reality is the very Christ whom God has given to us to experience and enjoy.

Leviticus (Program #3) – The Burnt Offering – Christ for God’s Satisfaction (1)

“…Behold, I have come to do Your will, O God.” This popular verse from Hebrews chapter 10 is commonly used but seldom understood in its real context – and that is of Christ replacing the Old Testament offerings. Stay with us today as we once again look at the picture of Christ as the Lamb of God in our life study of Leviticus.

The last 2 programs really were both introductions: firstly, to the book of Leviticus and then to the five major offerings which typify Christ in this book. We’re going to touch these offerings.  The focus today will be on the burnt offering.

At the end of the book of Exodus, we do see that the tabernacle is built. But now in Leviticus we see not only that the tabernacle is built but the living God is living in that tabernacle. And, He has provided the offerings for us, as His believers, to enter into the tabernacle – to have fellowship with Him, to contact Him, to enjoy Him and eventually, we see through typology, that it all leads to Christ and the experience of Christ…

Leviticus (Program #2) – A General Definition of the Offerings

Because Christ is so wonderful and all-inclusive, plain words are just not adequate to revel Him and describe Him.  Types which are actually pictures are also necessary.  Both the tabernacle and the offerings in the Leviticus are types of Christ.  As we look at these types or pictures that we see of Christ in the Old Testament.

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 #173) – The Making of the Tabernacle – Offering of the Materials, Preparing of Workers

The Bible reveals that God needs man to assist Him in His move.   God needs man and for this God calls man.  The question is what is it that man can do to assist God in His move?  What is it that God is looking for for man to carry out His move?  Part of the answers can be seen by understanding the types and pictures in the Old Testament book of Exodus.  For the past several months we had that enjoyment, that privilege and that pleasure and today we come nearly to the conclusion of this life study of Exodus.

Exodus (Program #172) – The Making of the Tabernacle with Its Furniture and the Garments for the Priests

When the children of Israel were escaping Egypt, the Lord granted them favor and allowed them to take much gold, silver and other precious materials with them.  Later they used that gold to make an idol, offending God to the uttermost.  But after being reconciled to Him they were able to offer this gold once again.  This time for the building of God’s House.  This brought in God’s full blessing.  This is a wonderful lesson for us today.

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 #162) – The Sabbath in Relation to the Building Work of the Tabernacle – Sabbath, Refreshment

After a very long section dealing with the blueprint for the tabernacle and all of the aspects of priestly service the Lord reintroduces the matter of the Sabbath rest for His people.  It’s an interesting insertion in the divine record and surely this repeat of the Sabbath rest is worth examining as to how it applies to us in our own walk with the Lord and our service to Him.

Exodus (Program #161) – The Workers of the Tabernacle, the Furniture and the Priestly Garment – Skillful Works, the Workmanship

God’s calling is a wonderful and mysterious thing.  He calls many people to many different works.  But the highest call to all of His people, regardless of our personal interests or desires is to be fully occupied in the building up of His habitation.  In the Old Testament it was first the tabernacle and later the temple.  But today this building work and our calling is related to the church.

A major topic in the New Testament has to do with building up of God’s House or the building of the church. Yet the details for this important building work may be most clearly seen in the Old Testament, particularly in the book of Exodus.
