You pick up your Bible is the more you see is something for me. I mean it's just when it's printed on paper may look like just print on the page but it's more than Inc. join us for the next half hour, as we explore God's word together as we learn how to explore it on our as we ask God to meet us there in its pages welcome to more than hey Winston barbecuing buddy for blocks because of the room smells great today will not consecrate the priest and that aroma in the air is good it does smell good and are not gods today on more than Inc. more than income.
Jim Dorothy sitting on her kitchen table really well at your dining diamond this, but it's very informal because we loved informally sit around look at the word you know kind of run it through our minds and taste it with our lips and talk about it so I don't know if you noticed but Doris and I both look at these passages before we record these. But we don't have time to mathematics the other person's going to say which leads to a little bit of tension and suspense so laughing at my guts let me bring up Tori were looking at chapter 29 of Exodus today and we just finished giving them high priest and his sons are closed last week and now we need to get them well installed into the role as priest. So we need to consecrate them as priest and that's the primary topic in chapter 29 is how to get them consecrated into the role as being intermediates for the intermediaries for the nation.
So, to consecrate that this is consecrate Aaron Loney of setting them apart in full view of everybody. There's nothing secret about Nancy's athlete but I think this happened so they know these men have been fully vested his job and since they do see it. This is God's way of saying in a graphical way. He's trying to tell you something very important about what the role of this man, the high priest and his sons is by how they are consecrated to take notes as we go and see if you can figure out what this is telling you visibly as we consecrate so turn your Bibles. Chapter 29 were jumping into verse one here goal is consecrate the priests okay this is what you shall do to them to consecrate them that they may serve me as priest. Take one ball of the herd and two rams without blemish and unleavened bread unleavened cakes mixed with oil, and unleavened wafers smeared with oil.
You shall make them a fine wheat flour you shall put them in one basket and bring them in the basket and bring the ball in the two rams you shall bring Aaron and his sons to the entrance of the tent of meeting and wash them with water, then you shall take the garments, and put on Aaron the coat the robe of the e-filed and e-filed and the brass piece and gird him with the skillfully woven band of the E Fahd and you shall set the turban on his head and put the holy crown on the turban and you shall take the anointing oil and pour it on his head and anoint him and then he shall bring his sons and put coats on them, and you shall gird Aaron and his sons were sashes and bind Them in the Priesthood Shall Be There Is by a Statute Forever That You Shall Ordain Aaron and His Sons Okay Stop Ready to Do Some Some Offerings but We Got Them All Dressed so You Notice That the Dress We Talked about the Previous Chapter There Putting It on Right Here in Front of the People Right Bring It All Together. They Got the Animals and That Food and Then There and Start into the Process to Wash Them. They Cologne Them and in the Wire Sons. That's Right. And We Bring We Bring the Recipe for the Sacrifices Right We Got a Bowl Some Ranks, Some We've Made Cakes and Stuff like That's Were Ready to Go and and Presumably You Know Aaron Shows up in His Street Clothes Is Normal Daily Client Doesn't Wear His His Priestly Garb All the Time and Is Getting Ready to Do This He Puts Puts These Things on Ceremonially Puts All the Stuff We Talked about Previous Chapter and You Know the Names of the Tribes of Israel over His Heart and on the Onyx Pieces on His Shoulders. The Turban the Gold That Says Holy Lord Stuff on Everyone Gets Ready and We Have All the Ingredients Set and I'm Really Going to the Consecration and Did You Catch It All of That Is Done for Aaron and Then You Bring the Sons That so Really the Focus Is on Aaron Is the High Priest Is the Hyper Business Sons As Servants, yet There See Why They Needed to Assist When You See the Magnitude of the Sacrifice. Well, Yes. So Perhaps There Are People Who Are Farmers Listening to This and You Think Our People Who Have Killed Their Own Cows or Sliding Their Own Livestock You Think Will Happen A Lot Work Well.
There's All Different Kinds of Sacrifices Coming up Here A Lot Work Well. We Have a Bull Which Is a Large and Left the First One. This Is Not a One-Man Sacrifice and Then You've Got Rams Which Are Feisty Sheep Write the Rams but We Have To Write Just One Item so This Is This Is Why You Can See the Aaron and His Sons Are Needed to Do This Kind of Thing so We Need to Get Them Consecrated and Part of the Idea of Consecration Is First off before They Can Be Good Intermediaries for the Sins of the People We Have To Do Something about, There's Right. That's What We Step up to Next and He Actually Talks about That, about How to Assess Priests Used To Have To Offer Sacrifice, First for Themselves before They Can Offer Sacrifice for the Cell.
Let's Read Let's Read by the Way I Might Just Point out and You Can Move with Us As We Go along. We Just Read That This Is You Shall Ordain Aaron and His Sons Talk A Lot about the Fact That Jesus Is Our High Priest, but You Know Jesus Is Not Is Not Aaron. So What Is That Mean We'll Get to That Some Other Time. We Talked about That Last Year We Write about. So Jesus Being a Priest of a Different Order. The Order of Milk Is That's Right so I You All If You're Just Picking up That Program Now You Can Go Back and Listen to That. It Says in Hebrews, Read the Letter to the Hebrews, I Just Wanted That Little Penny to Fall As That Was the Problem the Writer of Hebrews Is Saying Jesus a Priest and a Jew Would Say He Can't Because According to Exodus 29 and 20. He's Dying from Aaron.
Well, He's a Different Kind Present, but He Is No Less the High Priest. Okay, Let's Look at the Offering, the Conscripts, the Hybrids Run Reports to First Offering Is All Verse 10 Then You Shall Bring the Bull before the Tent of Meeting Aaron and His Sons Shall Lay Their Hands on the Head of the Ball, Then You Shall Kill the Bull before the Lord at the Entrance of the Tent of Meeting, and You Shall Take Part of the Blood of the Bull and Put It on the Horns of the Altar with Your Finger and the Rest of the Blind You Shall Pour out at the Base of the Altar and You Shall Take All the Fat That Covers the Entrails in the Long Lobe of the Liver and the Two Kidneys in the Fat That's on Them and Burn Them on the Altar, but the Flesh of the Ball and Its Skin and Its down You Shall Burn with Fire outside the Camp for to Sin Offering Well so Were Just Killing the Bull to Start Right Yeah and You Need to Take Notice of the Fact of What Happens the Blood Because the Blood Is Short of the Central Actor in This Entire Sacrifice. The Central Actor Robe and and Notice Where the Blood Goes, That's Really, Really Important Because Remember We Talked about the Fact of the Blood Isn't Just a Weird Dracula Horror Film Kind Ranking the Blood Is a Symbol of of Caring Life from One to Another. So When the Animal Loses Its Blood. It Loses Life. But When That Blood Is Applied Somewhere Else. It Symbolically Is Being Applied to the Source Moving of Life from One Sacrifice to Someone Else to Benefit.
So Where's the Blood Going This Particular Picture.
Where Does the Life Go, This One Goes on the Altar on the Altar to Sin Offering. The Blood Purifies the Altar. Yes. So, the Question Crossed My Mind Who Is Whose Fingers Putting the Blood on the Altar yet?
This This Point Because It Aaron Is Being Ordain Is Not Real Clear but Moses Is the One at This Point in Exodus, Moses Is Receiving the Instructions and You Are Having a Recounting Here of the Instructions Actually Have the Execution A Few Chapters Ahead Yeah Right, I Think, in Leviticus 8 We Actually See This Happen Rights Document Type but Yeah so You Could Be Moses Because His Errands Not Dip in the Finger and Putting Myself so Look What Happens to the Animal. Now I Support the Blood Gets Applied to the Altar and Poured Out Of the Base and Then You Take All the Guts. The Fattening Guts in the Deepest inside Part of the Animal and Burn Those on the Altar, but the Flesh and the Skin down the Refuse Is Burned with Fire outside the Camp Outcomes and Offering outside Hebrews 13 Refers to That Says Remember the Flesh of the Sin Offering Is Burned outside the Camp. Only the Blood Serious Purpose.
Yes, so the Blood Here Very Symbolically Purifies and Springs, and Brings up on Offer of Life Language Life Right around What Functions at the Altar. What Happens Now Is at the Altar Is Going to Be a Real Sense of Source of Life Right Even Though the Altar Is Known As a Killing Place Is a Place of Death. Grant, but It Would Be Because the Blood Transference.
The Blood Is As You but This Can Be Life That Comes from These for This Place Likes Very Clear Picture What the Altar Is All about Is Not Just to Give Gifts to God. It's Actually to Affect the Transference of Exchange of Life Right Very Clear Picture Right Here about That, and yet Still the Bull Itself in Its Flesh and His Larger Bodies Considered Kind of Sinful Right You Will Part the Only Important Part about This Sin Offering Bull Is the Blood the Rest. And While the Guts to Enter Parts Yeah Yeah No We Passed Right over to Beginning the Fact That Aaron's Sons Lay Their Hands on the Right.
So If You Just a Bystander Israelite Looking on This Year When You See That What You Thinking You Are Identifying Exactly As Paul Represents Me, Yes, and They Are Participating in Accepting the Substitution on the Case of the Part of the Bull Because the Altar Is the Deep Inner Part Guts Right and Part That Dies Burned outside the Camp Is the Dead Corrupted Flesh.
That's the Picture. Lots of A Lot Of the Alley. This Is Not Her Picture That Was Lost on Israelites. They Saw What Was Going on in the Benefit of the Transference of Life from This Bold Mighty Beast and and Basically Making the Altar, a Place Where Life Is Going to Come Out Of Death. That's an Amazing Thing and Ended At Least Right Now since Were Consecrating the Previous Aaron and His Sons Lay Their Hands on This Bull Right and They're Saying We Basically Accept the Substitutionary Transfer of Life on Our Behalf and Putting Our Hands As Raymond Identified This Bull Is so Clearly As People Are Looking on, You Know, If the Priest Were Standing off the Side into Sacrifices Animal Would Mean Much, but When They Lay Their Hands on It When I Realize This Is for Them to Sing Very Very Visual Clear Visual of What the Benefit and Purpose of the Substitutionary Sacrifice, You Are Accepting the Substitution Okay so Let's Read on. You Get to the Good to the Rams Now Verse 15 Shall Take One of the Rams and Aaron and His Sons Shall Lay Their Hands on the Head of the Ram and You Shall Kill the Ram and Take Its Blood and Throw It against the Sides of the Altar Shall Cut the Ram into Pieces and Wash Its Entrails in Its Legs and Put Them with Its Pieces and Its Head and Burn the Whole Ram on the Altar Is up Burnt Offering to the Lord Is a Pleasing Aroma of Food Offering to the Lord.
Okay, so the Difference Here Is This Whole Burnt Rain. You Probably Smelled Pretty Good Right Roasting Meat. It Says It Was a Pleasing Aroma. Yeah, What the Ancient Man Barbecuing Animals Smells Pretty Darn Good. All Okay but the Imagery of the Whole Thing Hello My Whole Self Right Right so This This Is Similar Again to Trace the Direction of the Blood and You Killer Him Tickets Blood in Your Throat Is the Sides of the Altar Gets on the Way Were Sort of Making the Altar an Acceptable Place of the Transference of Life from the Salter Life Out Of Death and See Clearly What It's Saying and Then and Then the Totality Not Just Part of the More Likable, but the Whole Animal Does This the First of the Two Rams First of the Two Rags Right Is Holy, Holy Invested in This Process and at the Burnt Offering to the Lord.
It's a Pleasing Aroma Itself. Food Offering and It It's Really Clearly an Interesting Yeah It's a Food Offering and They Can They Know What What Roasting Let Me Know Right Right.
It Smells That It Smells Really Good.
So Not Only Does It Smell Good to Them but They Can Understand Why This Would Smell Good to God to This Offering That's Made On Behalf Of the Sins of the Priests Is Something That Smells Good to God and They Get That Good.
It Does Smell Good Hall Hole in One of That Was the First of Two Ram Okay Other Rivers. 19 You Shall Take an Aaron and His Sons Shall Lay Their Hands on the Head of the Ram and You Shall Kill the Ram at Take Part of Its Blood and Put It on the Tip of the Right Ear and on the Tips of the Right Ears of His Sons and on the Thumbs of Their Right Hands and on the Great Toes at the Right Feet and Throw the Rest of the Blood against the Sides of the Altar, Then You Shall Take Part in the Blood That's on the Altar and of the Anointing Oil and Sprinkle It on Aaron and His Garments, and on His Sons and His Sons Garment and He and His Governments Shall Be Holy and His Sons and His Sons Garments with Him Will While Okay before We Finish with Do with the Rest of This Randall and Osaka's Yeah This Is This Is for Me like the Focal Point of This Entire Today with Interesting so Again with the Second Randy Later Hands on so Identified with Visibly Identifying with the Sacrifice and Again Trace with the Blade of the Blood and That's What's Interesting Here so I Will Watching This. This Kind of Representative Exchange of Life Had Just Right.
So Where's the Blood Go It Gets Marked on Them Right Here to Put the Writer on Their Thumb on Their Right Hand Right Hand Founding Telling Right Front so Simply and in Feet Represent Something and If We Remember That the Priests Are Representatives of the People to God but They Also Represent God, Yes.
So Were Talking about the Exchange of Life and Holy Life. I Hearing Doing Walking yet to Find Yeah Yeah so Sanctified or Set Apart for Purpose so That Her Ears Are Now Set Apart for Purpose, Their Hands Are Set Apart for Purpose of Feed or Set Apart for Purpose. So I'm in the Totality We Always Said This Because There Holy in the Job but It Does Say Something about the Fact That God Is Sanctifying. There There Listening in Their Hearing Sanctifying What They Do with the Works of Their Hand What They Do.
As a Result of What They Hear and Where They Go and How They Walk so That This Very Clear Symbols Right Right Here and and Remember If You Remember the Blood Is This Transference of Life. What God Is Saying Is That Now They're Going to Be Involved in the Sense That They're Going to Be Participants in the Conveying of Life through What They Hear What They Do and Where They Go Well Okay That Makes Sense, but It Took Took a Supernatural Substitution to Make Them Practicable to Do That and That's That's What This Is All about and Then Eventually the Blood Even after That Goes on the Altar like Again. Life Is Going to Come Out Of Death That Happens on This Altar, but It's What Happens after That Blows My Mind. So the Reader Will Note Not Know the Anointing Oil. Oh Yeah the Blood Messaging Anointing Oil and Where Does That Go It Does Not Go on the Altar Doesn't Go on Their Ears Thumbs or Toes. It Goes on This Beautiful Clothing They're Wearing. This Remember How Beautiful It Was for Beauty and for Glory and Sprinkled on Their Clothing and I Look When I Read That in the Margin. I Wrote No, No, You Make Them All Icky with the Blood and Achy with the Oil and You Know the Oils the Holy Spirit and the Calling of God on Their Behalf.
I Mean You Can You Correct on This Great Clothing in All This Greatly Raises an Interesting Question.
Is It a Literal Splattering of Blood or Is It a Ceremonial Well, Flicking Is Not Just a Sprinkle Rafael, Sprinkle It on Aaron and His Garments, It's Very Specific on His Garments and His Sons Garments so Get the Visual Here Because Now When You See Aaron and His Sons Doing the Stuff for God, for the Benefit of People Not Only Are They Go See These Precious Stones with the Precious Names of the Tribes of Israel and All These Great Linens in These Colors There Now. Every Time They See Him. They're Going to See Blood As Well and That's That's Meant to Be a Little Jarring and for Me Visually Is like to Put This Picture in My Head.
It's Jarring. It's Jarring You Taking This Beautiful Thing and They Just They Just Wrecked It with All This Blood, but the Role of the High Priest in Terms of Carrying the Names of the People before God Has To Always Have Visually Mixed with the Fact That They Don't Come to God except with This Blood. Okay, Here Is an Excellent Nothing Is Cleansed That Oceania's Lives without the Shedding of Blood.
Without This, This, This Imputation of Life. So This Very Beautiful Picture of This Clothing Has To Always Carry around This Marking with Blood That I Mean Just It's Just Very Clear.
It Would Just Be Jarring to Me to See It Because Mark Can Deal with Sin and God Said the Beginning Know If You Sin. There Will Be Death You Will Die Yes and I Will Have To Pay for That for You to Pay for Yourself Yeah and and We Back When We Are in the Holy of Holies We Have We Have the Ark of the Company Ran This Beautiful Gold Covered Box with the Beautiful Solid Culture Is on Top in the in the Use of That Space. The High Priest Goes and Sprinkled Blood on That Beautiful Gold Piece of Furniture. This Is so Jarring It's It Just Mars Everything.
It's a Constant Reminder. The Fact That Life Does Not Come without the Shedding of Blood, Even in the Very Presence of Its It's Everywhere It's It's It's It Marks the Path into the Holy of Holies the Presence of God. It Even Marks the High Priest Himself and Jesus Is Our High Priest Was Marked with Blood. His Blood Was Shed on Our Behalf. So This Is a Very Direct Connection. Yeah, We Actually See Him Eternally Marked Nice Keys As Identified in Revelation Is the Lamb Who Was Slain, He Carries That Mark of the Sacrifice of Life into Eternity. I Do Not Understand That You Hear Is Constant Reminder, but That the View That All the Time We Spent Looking to Garments Here What We've Just Done Is We've Consecrated the Garments We Consecrated the Garments and with What with Blood Itself That I Think That's a Fascinating Thing.
It's It Just Directs the Beauty of the Garments to Me but It Doesn't Actually Fulfills Their Purpose. Yeah Yeah You Are You Going Simplot W. Let's Read on to Finish What Happens What Happens to This Sacrifice Will Take a 22 What We Call the Wave Offering Way, You'll See Why. So You Shall Also Take the Fat from the Rim of the Fantail and the Fat That Covers the Entrails and the Long Lobe of the Liver and the Two Kidneys with the Fact That Is on Them and the Right Thigh for the Ram of Ordination and One Loaf of Bread and One Cake of Bread Made with Oil and One Wafer Out Of the Basket of Unleavened Bread That Is before the Lord, You Shall Put All These on the Palms of Aaron and on the Palms of His Sons and Wave Them for Wave Offering before the Lord, and You Shall Take Them from Their Hands and Burn Them on the Altar on Top of the Burnt Offering As a Pleasing Aroma before the Lord. It's a Food Offering to the Lord. That's What We Hear about a Wave Offering Well You Put These Things in Aaron Sandy Lifts Him up to Gunny Waves before the Lord and Then They Sacrifice Have Nothing to Say. I Really Don't Because It Is There Is Peace of This Ram That's Going to Be Also a Wave Offering That Then Becomes Their Portion Eat Yeah, but at This Point. This First Part That Fat the Entrails and All That Part of the Meat and the Bread Becomes a Wave Offering and Get Earned That Beautiful Fragrance to the Lord Will Yeah and This Is This Whole Part about Waving Is the One People Watching This.
They Clearly See That This Part of the Ram Right Is Being Presented to God, but in Another Part of the Range Come You Just Said to Be Consumed by the Presleep. We Look at That 26 SF Sets Us Apart so You Shall Take the Breast of the of the Ram of Errands Ordination and Wave It for Wave Offering before the Lord and It Shall Be Your Your Vision. That's a Food Term and You Shall Consecrate the Breast of the Wave Offering That Is Waived and the Thigh of the Priest Portion That Is Contributed from the Rim of Ordination from What Was Aaron Aarons and His Sons, and It Shall Be for Aaron and His Sons As a Perpetual Due. This Is There for Them Right for Fair Staff from the People of Israel, for It Is a Contribution, It Shall Be a Contribution from the People of Israel from Their Peace Offerings Their Contribution to the Lord. So This Part Right Here. We Just Read Is about the Fact That This Is This Is the Food That Feeds the Priests Right Yeah Comes from the Peace Offerings of the People the Sin Offering Exact Come from the Other Kinds of Offerings, a Constant Piece of It Shall Be Your Portion in This Explained You Mentioned This before about How It Is That When They Subdivided the Land When They Came Landed in Guinea Land Priest and Getting Lame so High's Mysteries Flock Size Postrace Food. They Lived off of This Is How They Lived and They Lived off of the Peace Offerings. It Came from the People As God's Provision for Them As God's Provision for Them so You Know There's There's Debates. The Area We Live in about Whether or Not It's Right for Say Pastors Are People in Ministry to Accept Income for What They Do Will Hear Aaron and His and His Sons As Priest This This Is How They Handle Literally Their Food from What They Did Full Time on God As Servants of God On Behalf Of the People.
This Is Basically Their Income.
This Is How the Eight Was from This so This Is True. This Is Their Portion Shall Always Be Your Portion so NF FIA Kind Interesting Here When We Look at Communion We Take in the Bread and Drink.
We Take It into Ourselves Here That the Priests Themselves Are Taking the Site and It Occurred to Me That You Know If You Need to Eat.
We All Need to Eat, but Would Be Silly.
It Does No Good to Just Sit around Food.
You Actually Have To Have To Consume It and Know That's True of Communion As We Do That That's True Right Here to so in a in a Large Measure, the Priests Are Participating in This Bike Consume Hebrews Says That and Paul Says That Also, Don't You Know That When You Are When You Eat the Sacrifices You Are Becoming a Participant to Participant Right This Is This Is Our Way like They Put Their Hands on the Sacrifice Animals. This Is How We Participant Hereby Taking and That's Not a Foreign Concept in Ancient People. Now When Needed Pagan Sacrifice Did the Same Thing. They Taken the Benefit of It by Taking into Themselves.
Well Indeed, That's, You Know, Pagan Idolatrous Practices. The Drinking of Blood Was a Common Saying I Be Anything You Are Taking into Yourself.
The Life of That Animal Sacrifice. Yeah, Right, and They Were Doing It in Order to Take on the Characteristics of That Creature. Yeah Right but but We Deal It Will Drink Literally the Blood Representation Only. We Take the Body and Blood of Christ into Ourselves Right and That's That Idea Extended from Ancient His Life in yet. Just Being around the Sacrifice Doesn't Do It, You Have To Actually Take It in Because of Participant Respect You Were Running Short on Time on This One As Well Working to Continue Next Week on More Consecration but More Looking Forward like to Aaron Successors Because This What We Just Looked at Right Here Was This First Time Consecration of Aaron the High Priest First One, and His Sons in This Processor Will Look Forward and Is More of This Kind of Thing. Next Time, but Just Last Impressions on This As We Look at the Consecration. Well, I Just Struck by Where the Blood: Swallow the Blood All over His Importance on People and the Priest's Representative on Their What They Hear What They Do with What They Hear and How They Walk Right, Both Representing People before God and Representing God for the People yet so in the Sacrifices Found the Blood.
Blood Is the Medium through Energy Issue Is Transferred. That's How It Always Is. Life Is in the Blood Is so Symbolically It's the Moving of Life from One to Another and We Know Because of Christ, Who Is Not Only Our High Priest Is Also the Second That That Life Starts. That's What We Say That the Blood Is. That's What Blood Is All about Jim and I'm Doing Next Time Will Come Back, Consecrate Future Generations in My Previous Year on the Production of Mainstream Church Is Solely Responsible for Its Content.
