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?

Exodus (Program #122) – The Priestly Garments (7) Held to the Lord, Transformation, Onyx Stone

The details that God revealed to Moses regarding the design and furnishings of the tabernacle convey a lot of spiritual insights into our own experience of Christ and the Christian life.  In a similar way, Jehovah was careful and very specific as He revealed all the items that the High Priest had to wear in conducting the priestly service in the tabernacle.  Among these items, six in total, the Ephod is most mysterious and full of marvelous, spiritual meaning.  We return today for another look at the priestly garments.

Exodus (Program #115) – The Lighting of the Lamps and the Garments for the Priesthood (2)

Exodus 27:20 speaks about the Holy Place within the tabernacle and calls that place, the Tent of Meeting.  To God’s Old Testament people it represented their corporate interaction with God.  Bible scholars have  long realized to us, the New Testament Christians, this sanctuary in the tabernacle is a picture of the gathering of the believers, the meetings of the church.  How to meet as seen by the activities in the Holy Place.

Exodus (Program #113) – The Court of the Tabernacle (4)

There is a powerful verse in the gospel of John that says when the Spirit of reality comes, He will convict the world concerning sin, righteousness and judgment.  Actually, every saved person has experienced this very thing.  In fact, without this experience we will never appreciate the need for our wonderful redeeming Christ.  But this same experience is described in the details of the gate of the tabernacle in Exodus.

Exodus (Program #112) – The Court of the Tabernacle (3)

The door or entrance to a building usually says a lot about that building.  For example, the entrance to a state capital or even the White House will give us an impression of the nature of what is within the building.  What about the building of God?  what does the entrance say about the nature and expression of God’s House?  Stay with us today as we look at the gate of the tabernacle of God and in it find the full salvation of Jesus Christ.
