The Burnt Offering Life

In Leviticus 1:9, God speaks of the burnt offering, one of the many offerings that the Israelites offered to Him: “…The priest shall burn the whole on the altar, as a burnt offering, an offering by fire, a satisfying fragrance to Jehovah.” This offering was wholly burnt on the altar; nothing was left for man

The Lamb as the Lamp Shining Forth the Glory of God

In Revelation 21:23 we read that the New Jerusalem “has no need of the sun or of the moon that they should shine in it, for the glory of God illumined it, and its lamp is the Lamb.” God is the light, and He is embodied in and shining through the Lamb as the lamp.

Entering into the Good Land – Crossing the River Jordan

In other words, the glory of God is altogether embodied in Christ, who glorifies the Father with the glory which the Father gave Him (John 1:14; 2:11; 5:41; 8:50, 54; 17:4-5). During the first stage of Christ’s ministry,

In the previous post of this series, we saw that Noah, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob built altars in order to consecrate themselves to God; that is, to give themselves and all that they had to Him. Since we too may desire to consecrate ourselves to God as these men did, we must see and experience

The Purpose of God’s Calling – To Bring God’s Chosen People into the Good Land

In a previous post we saw that the land God promised to Abraham in the book of Genesis (12:1, 7) is a type of the all-inclusive Christ (link to post). Before this promise was fulfilled, Abraham’s descendants, the children of Israel, were enslaved in Egypt under the rule of Pharaoh for four hundred years (15:13;

Dealing with the Self

Dealing with the Self

In Matthew 16 we have the revelation of the Christ, the Son of the living God (v. 16). In the same chapter, we also have the revelation of the self, seen in the expression of Peter’s opinion (vv. 21-23).  After the Lord told His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem and die, he was
