Bible Talks from Leviticus



Blessings and Curses

Preached on November 24, 2012
Speaker:
Bible Text: Leviticus 26:1-13

A general principle in life is that we reap what we sow, but that is not always the case in this fallen world. The hope that we have is that all the blessings that are promised in the scriptures will come to fruition in the new heavens and the new earth. But the same is truth for those who have not turned to Jesus, the curse of everlasting punishment.


Feast

Preached on November 17, 2012
Speaker:
Bible Text: Leviticus 23:1-14

The Old Testament feasts were a fore-shadowing of what Jesus would do and they remind of us the kindness of God to work hard and rest well.


Purity

Preached on November 10, 2012
Speaker:
Bible Text: Leviticus 18:1-23

The world's view of sex is that along as its between 2 consenting adults and no-one is getting hurt. However, God view is much different. He calls us to have purity in sex. Purity in sex isn't just about being prudish but it protects people, society and especially children.


Day of Atonement

Preached on November 3, 2012
Speaker:
Bible Text: Leviticus 16:1-10

Sin is a big deal to God. Sin is so important to God, yet it is so unimportant to us. We see just how important dealing with sin is to God with the day of Atonement. Jesus is the ultimate sacrifice and demostration of God dealing with our sins and providing forgiven.


Clean and Unclean

Preached on October 27, 2012
Speaker:
Bible Text: Leviticus 11:41-47

God had marked certain things as unclean and if man had contact with these things it would make them unclean. This was done so that God's people would be set apart, it was a sign of them identifying with God. Because of the greatness of Jesus there is no longer a distinction between clean and unclean, but all are Holy in Him.


Priest

Preached on October 20, 2012
Speaker:
Bible Text: Leviticus 9:7-23

The Priests in Israel had the most important and yet the most dangerous job. They were responible for offering sacrifices for themselves and before the people and failure to fulfil God's requirements for sin resulted in death. Fortunately for us new covenant believers Jesus dealt with our sins so that we are now priests that have direct access to God and may approach him boldly.


Sacrifice

Preached on October 13, 2012
Speaker:
Bible Text: Leviticus

The sacrificial system for the Israelites was not simply about blood offerings for sin, but also gifts of praise to God and enjoying fellowship with God and one another.


An Introduction to Leviticus

Preached on September 15, 2012
Speaker:
Bible Text:

The Book of Leviticus is the first that Orthodox Jews teach theirĀ children. They do this to teach them about their uncleanness before God because of their sin. Leviticus explains how the Jews could approach a Holy God, a shadow of the work that Jesus would do upon the cross.
