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.

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…
