The Court and the Altar (Worship Service, October 14, 2018)

Title: The Court and the Altar

Passage: Exodus 27:1-19

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: October 14, 2018

In Ex. 27, the Lord continues his move outward with the Bronze Altar and Tabernacle Court. The Altar is the way or place through which God is approached by his people. The Courtyard, on the other hand, portrays God’s holiness which prevents sinful men from having unrestricted access to God. This morning, we’ll look at the construction of the Bronze Altar, then the Courtyard, and then we’ll work backwards in speaking of their implications.

The Tabernacle (Worship Service, September 30, 2018)

Title: The Tabernacle

Passage: Exodus 26

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: October 7, 2018

This week, the Lord God proceeds in ch 26 to discuss the construction of the Tabernacle itself. Remember that tabernacle means dwelling place. In fact, that word for dwelling place is what comes first in the original Hebrew. With that very word, we are reminded again of the very special purpose this tent is given. The tabernacle is God’s home. We must keep this before our understanding and affections as we proceed through Exodus 26. As a place of God’s presence, the Tabernacle is a place of grace, It is a home of mercy and covenant love.

To the left of the Altar of Incense, on the north side of the Holy Place, was the Table. These latter two objects are our focus today.

Title: The Ark of the Covenant

Passage: Exodus 25:10-22

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: September 23, 2018

As God explains how the Tabernacle is to be made, he begins right a the center of the Tabernacle, right at the heart of this holy system, with the Ark of the Covenant, the only piece of furniture in the Most Holy Place within the Tabernacle. By beginning with the Ark, he gives great priority to his presence. This morning, we consider this central object, the Ark of the Covenant.

Title: Bring an Offering

Passage: Exodus 25:1-9

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: September 16, 2018

At the end of ch. 24, Moses ascended into the cloud of glory at the summit of Sinai. The first thing that Moses records the Lord speaking to him is that the people should take an offering: “Speak to the people of Israel, that they take for me a contribution.” This message is on Israel’s offering. This offering is significant theologically and practically.

The Blood Of The Covenant (Worship Service, August 26th, 2018)

Title: The Blood Of The Covenant

Passage: Exodus 24: 1-8

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: August 26th, 2018

Our text draws our attention to the blood of the covenant. It is crucial to this account, and Moses’s words direct our gaze right at it: Behold, the blood of the covenant that the LORD has made with you. As important were the words of the covenant, Yahweh’s words to the people, and the people’s words back, the blood is especially significant. What do we learn from the blood of the covenant in this passage?

Do Not Rebel (Worship Service, August 12th, 2018)

Title: Do Not Rebel

Passage: Exodus 23:20-33

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: August 12th, 2018

In our text for this morning, the giving of the covenant concludes with an epilogue. As the Lord gives the Law, the Lord has again and again stressed obedience. But this passage is also about what God will do for his covenant people. In this epilogue to the covenant, we see what God will do for Israel if they keep covenant. That stipulation is important.
