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.

Exodus (Program #160) – The Workers of the Tabernacle, the Furniture and the Priestly Garment – The Wise Master Builder, Filled with the Spirit of God

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.

Exodus (Program #159) – The Incense—Oiled and Salted; the Ingredients

We are going to complete, in a sense a two-part series dealing with the incense that was burnt in the golden incense altar in the tabernacle.  Yesterday, we had a program that brought out this matter of the divine traffic that is pictured by looking at these two things that are brought up at the end of chapter 30; the holy anointing oil, we spent a number of programs on this topic and then yesterday and today we are now touching the recipe for incense that was given almost in the same breath.  This was a marvelous point, the divine traffic.  We touched many times earlier but particularly in Genesis as we first look at Jacob’s ladder.  Of course, in the life study of John it comes up again as well.  There seems to be a development of what was initially presented in Genesis to some degree.

Exodus (Program #148) – The Propitiation Silver (3) Half Shekel

In the Old Testament book of Exodus, every male over the age of 20 was drafted to fight in the army of God to protect His interests and to cover the moving of the tabernacle.  This is a clear picture for us because God’s move on earth today needs an army of those who have attained to a level of maturity, to be those who will fight for His interest on the earth.

Exodus (Program #141) – The Golden Incense Altar (2) Need for Intercession and Prayer Life of the Corporate Christ

Romans 8:34 tells us that right now Christ is at the right hand of God interceding for us.  Intercession is an interesting word.  Of course, the common definition is prayer.  But the kind of prayer Christ is offering on behalf of us is not just common prayer.  The incense altar in the tabernacle in Exodus typifies this specific and most meaningful prayer.  Today we will see that Christ is waiting for us to join Him at the real altar of incense.

Exodus (Program #140) – The Golden Incense Altar (1) (Place, Location, God’s Administration, and Prayer Life of the Corporate Christ)

Our God is administrating the entire universe. The central point of His administration is seen by the Old Testament picture of the incense altar in the tabernacle from the book of Exodus.  Stay with us today as we look at the central point of God’s administration.

Our God is certainly not a passive God, but rather One that is full of purpose.  It’s a common questions among believers and even many unsaved that are not sure about God.   That is, they want to know what is God doing what is it all about…

Exodus (Program #136) – The Sanctification of Aaron and His Sons to be the Priests (7)

Exodus chapter 28 and 29 gave us a detailed picture of how the priests prepare themselves for the services in the tabernacle.  But it’s the goal of that preparation that is most interesting.  Following the elaborate washing and dressing, came a time of feasting, both for God and man.  Once again, the unveiling of the details in Exodus provide us with real help in our own enjoyment with Savior Christ.

Exodus (Program #131) – The Sanctification of Aaron and His Sons to be the Priests (2) Sin Offering and the Way to Feast on Christ

Many items of the Old Testament are later associated with Christ in the New Testament.  Among the most frequently discussed items are the offerings that became part of the service in the tabernacle and later the temple.  What do these Old Testament animal offerings have to do with our Savior Christ and with our own experience of His divine life in us?

We are in the section of the life study of Exodus now that touches the offerings.  The offerings of the Old Testament have long been connected to, or associated with Christ.  The New Testament does make it clear that Christ on the cross was the real fulfillment of many of these offerings, like the sin offering and trespass offering that we will see today.

Exodus (Program #128) – The Priestly Garments (15) Robe

The Bible tells us that Christ is the embodiment or the expression of God.  No one has ever seen God, but the Son of God has given Him expression.  Without an expression, how could God ever be known?  A wonderful type of God’s expression is seen in Exodus in the beautiful garments that the priests serving in the tabernacle were required to wear.   We will look more at this divine expression in this life study of the Bible.

We are looking at the robe particularly today as we continue this examination that has gone on for many programs, some weeks actually of the garments of the priest.  We saw initially that the instructions for this priestly garment came from God Himself, Jehovah as He was giving so many instructions to Moses on Mount Sinai.  To really pick up the spiritual essence of these items of the garment, first we need to realize that in the Bible garments always signify outward expression.  How does that principle apply to the complicated priestly garment we have been looking at?
