After the deaths of Nadab and Abihu, Aaron’s two disobedient (presumptuous) sons … priests who died in the Tabernacle offering (unacceptable) “strange fire” unto the Lord … the Book of Leviticus delves into a “ton” of rules and regulations concerning “purity!” Likely and specifically … because their (Nadab’s and Abihu’s) sin had defiled the whole […]
Do you remember how the Book of Exodus ended? “Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle. And Moses was NOT ABLE TO ENTER into the tent of the congregation, because the cloud abode thereon, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.” Exodus […]
Yes, God had forbidden any of His Priests in Israel to own land, thus being able to farm, raising their own food. These men were to live off the food brought to the Tabernacle! The remains of certain portions of the Offerings presented to God! For example, concerning the meat (meal) offering here … “And […]
Temple Baptist Church - 4-28-20191 Chronicles 29:1-9Introduction:A. In our text this morning, we find Israel preparing to build Solomon's Temple. From the time of Israel's departure from Egypt to King David's day, God's presence was found in the Tabernacle, a special tent where God met with man.B. David's desire was to build God a house but was not allowed to do so because he was a man of war so David and Israel prepared by storing up the materials necessary to build the Temple in Solomon's day.1. Verse 1. The Work was Great. “the work is great.” It was to be the greatest building project the world had ever known: a house built for the glory and worship of God. 2. Verse 1. The Temple was Great. “the palace … for the Lord.” Heretofore, God's presence had resided in and met with the people of God in a tent, the Tabernacle in the Wilderness. Israel would now begin building Solomon's Temple.3. Verse 2. The Effort was Great. “I have prepared with all my might.” David prepared with all his might as there was so much to accomplish in such a short time.4. Verse 2. The Cost was Great. “gold … silver … brass … iron … wood … stones … marble … in abundance.” Solomon's Temple was the most expensive building in the world. 5. Verse 3. The Affection was Great. “I have set my affection to the house of my God.” The people of Israel were thrilled by the prospect.6. Verse 3-5. The Sacrifice was Great. “I have of mine own proper good … over and above all that I have prepared for the holy house.” David and the people gave of their “proper good.” Something put up or a peculiar treasure.7. Verses 5-8. Their Willingness was Great. “(5) who then is willing to consecrate … (6) offered willingly … (7) gave for the service of the house of God … (8) gave for the service of the house of God.” They gave above and beyond expectation. They did not give the minimum required by law, but gave freely of a willing heart.8. Verse 9. Their Rejoicing was Great. “rejoiced with great joy.” What a privilege and blessing it was to them to give to the work of the Lord. Their sacrifice was a thing of rejoicing and joy, not sorrow and hardship.C. I just wanted to take a few minutes this morning to commend Temple Baptist Church for your willingness to give. I do not spend a lot of time preaching on tithing and giving because most of you understand both the command to give and the blessing of giving. 2 Corinthians 9:7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.D. This is the greatest giving church that I have ever been associated with! I do not know who gives what but I do know what is given and stand amazed.E. The local church is the place of God's choosing to edify the saints, teach the Word of God, prepare for the ministry, and carry the gospel to a lost and dying world.1. The Purpose of Giving. It is two-fold.a. The Commission is great. Matthew 28:19-20 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: (20) Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. (To go into all the world while remaining at home. The only way to do that is to give to missions.)b. The Church is great. Ephesians 5:25-27 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; (26) That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, (27) That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.Acts 20:28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.2. The Proving of Giving. a. Our Attitude towards God's House - Malachi 3:10a-12 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house … b. Our Attitude towards the souls of men - Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. (To evangelize at home and abroad at the same time.)c. Our Attitude towards our finances - 2 Corinthians 8:1-5 Moreover, brethren, we do you to wit of the grace of God bestowed on the churches of Macedonia; (2) How that in a great trial of affliction the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded unto the riches of their liberality. (3) For to their power, I bear record, yea, and beyond their power they were willing of themselves; (4) Praying us with much intreaty that we would receive the gift, and take upon us the fellowship of the ministering to the saints. (5) And this they did, not as we hoped, but first gave their own selves to the Lord, and unto us by the will of God. (The local church is a non-profit organization by design. God's money is to be spent wisely.) 3. The Pleasure of Giving.a. Giving with cheerfulness. 2 Corinthians 9:7-11 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. (8) And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work: (9) (As it is written, He hath dispersed abroad; he hath given to the poor: his righteousness remaineth for ever. (10) Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness;) (11) Being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God.b. Giving with confidence. Malachi 3:10b-12 … and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. (11) And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts. (12) And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts.2 Corinthians 9:6 But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.Luke 6:38 Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
Temple Baptist Church - 5-1-2019Hebrews 8:1-6Introduction: A. The Book of Hebrews, written to the strangers scattered referenced by Peter in 2 Peter 3:15, was written to encourage the saved Jews of the dispersion. They were familiar with the Old Testament economy of Law but not yet familiar with the New Testament economy of Grace and Truth.John 1:15-17 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me. (16) And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. (17) For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.B. “Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum.” Sum – the combination or culmination of different things that go together to make one. A summary. C. The Holy Spirit uses these verses to show the ultimate priesthood of Christ, which was far better than the Levitical priesthood.D. These Jewish believers were familiar with the work of the priesthood. The Levitical Priesthood began with Aaron, whom God personally appointed. The priesthood of Christ came after the Order (character) OF Melchisedec.E. Melchisedec was an Old Testament type and our Lord Jesus Christ was the anti-type or fulfillment of that type.Hebrews 7:2-3 To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace; (3) Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.F. Why a High Priest? 1. In the Old Testament, the High Priest represented man to God. Individuals could not come directly to God, therefore the priesthood. Priests offered up the sacrifices brought to the Tabernacle (and later the Temple). The High Priest represented man to God when, once a year, he entered the Holy of Holies with the blood of atonement.2. In the New Testament economy, God gave passing gifts of apostles and prophets during the “Transitional Period” because the Word of God had not yet been completed. (1 Corinthians 13). The apostles represented God to man whereas the priests represented man to God.3. God also gave evangelists and the pastor/teacher to the local church. The evangelist is the missionary and the pastor/teacher the Bishop or “under-shepherd.”4. The apostles and prophets are now gone as the Word of God came in its completion and purity. Pastors take the oversight of the flock of God and each individual is his own “priest.” We can go directly to God through the precious blood of Christ instead of through a priest.5. But, there was and is still a need for a High Priest. In chapter 9, we will see much about the blood of Christ once offered for the sins of the people and applied to the Mercy Seat in heaven. The blood is still there and the censor remains in the HOLY OF HOLIES in the heavenly Temple.Ephesians 4:11-16 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; (12) For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: (13) Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: (14) That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; (15) But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: (16) From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.G. Here is the Sum: through our Better High Priest:1. We have a Better Purity. “such an high priest” Before Christ, men could not enter the Holy Place. They brought their sacrifices to the priests who offered those sacrifices upon the Brazen Altar.a. The Old Testament high priest had to wash at the Laver before entering the Holy Place. The Laver was made of the brazen mirrors of the women to make the high priest see and recognize his need of personal cleansing.b. The Old Testament high priest had to first offer for his personal sins before offering for the sins of the people.c. Jesus Christ was the sinless Son of God who knew no sin, did not sin, thought no sin, and spoke no sin. He had no need of sacrifice for purification. Through His sacrifice, we become pure as He is pure.2. We Have A Better Position. “who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens”a. The Old Testament priest was an earthly man. Though the work of the priesthood was 24 hours a day, the High Priest could only approach God at the Mercy Seat once a year.b. His work was to offer incense daily but, as an earthly man, he had to sleep.c. Jesus Christ is a heavenly man who is seated with God with intercession being made throughout the day. We are eternally positioned, hid with Christ in God.d. While we sleep, He is our safeguard, our mediator, our intercessor. Jesus Christ neither slumbers nor sleeps.3. We Have A Better Performance. “A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.” a. The Old Testament Priest ministered in the Tabernacle made by man. A shadow of the true Tabernacle in heaven. The Old Testament priest offered daily for sin.b. Jesus Christ entered the True Tabernacle in heaven for us. Our High Priest offered once for sin, never to be offered again. Christ died once for all.4. We Have a Better Propitiation. “For every high priest is ordained to offer gifts and sacrifices: wherefore it is of necessity that this man have somewhat also to offer.”a. The Old Testament high priest offered the blood of bulls and goats as an atonement for sin.b. Jesus Christ offered His precious, incorruptible blood as the final payment for sin.5. We Have a Better Promise. “But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.”a. The Old Testament high priest's work was Prophetic.b. Jesus Christ's priestly work is fulfillment of Prophecy.Conclusion: The sum is the culmination of who Christ is and what Christ has done.
