Sanctification by Glory (Worship Service, November 25th, 2018)

Title: Sanctification by Glory

Passage: Exodus 29:35-46

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: November 25, 2018

The sermon is concerned with the rest of chapter 29. Its themes can divided up into three sections: God’s command about the length of the consecration ceremony; God’s command about the daily offerings; and a summary statement about God’s great purpose for the sanctuary. What we read here is God’s way of him graciously providing a way for him to dwell with Israel.

The Consecration of Yahweh’s Priests 1 (Worship Service, November 18th, 2018)

Title: The Consecration of Yahweh’s Priests 1

Passage: Exodus 29:1-34

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: November 18, 2018

The purpose of the consecration is that Aaron and his sons may serve me as priests. If you are going to be in God’s tent, in the tent of the King of all the earth, in the Creator who dwelt in holy Eden, you must first be holy. This ceremony will consecrate these men for such a significant task in the symbolic and representative way that god reveals here in these verses. The intention this morning is first to explain the ordination of the priests so that we understand what is going on here, and then draw out the most significant parts of this revelation for our edification.

Yahweh’s Priests 3 (Worship Service, November 11th, 2018)

Title: Yahweh’s Priests 3

Passage: Exodus 28:36-43

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: November 11, 2018

This is the third message of several sermons on the high priests of Yahweh, who served him in his sanctuary. These passages are vital to understanding of true religion, for our Lord Jesus himself is a priest. If we’re going to understand his ministry to us, we need to understand the priests. Part of the priestly ministry is revealed in the priests’ garments. Let’s continue considering the high priest and his ministry this morning together.

Yahweh’s Priests 2 (Worship Service, November 4th, 2018)

Title: Yahweh’s Priests 2

Passage: Exodus 28:6-35

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: November 4, 2018

If you look at v 4, you’ll see a list of garments Israel is to make: a breastpiece, an ephod, a robe, a coat of checker work, a turban, and a sash. The breastpiece and ephod go together, and they are together at the heart of the high priests’ garments. The instructions for the Tabernacle began with the Ark, at the heart of the Tabernacle. So God begins with the heart of the priestly garments, the ephod and the breastpiece.

Justification: the Great Exchange (Worship Service, October 28th, 2018)

Title: Justification: the Great Exchange

Passage: 2 Corinthians 5:21

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: October 28, 2018

Luther said of justification, “Nothing in this article can be given up or compromised…On this article rests all that we teach…Therefore we must be quite certain and have no doubts about it. Otherwise all is lost.” Calvin said of justification that it “is the main hinge on which religion turns.” Jonathan Edwards said that, “the highest glory of the gospel and the delight of the Scriptures is this very doctrine of justification through the righteousness of Christ obtained by faith.” It’s hard to add anything to these remarks. The doctrine of justification is at the heart of authentic Christian theology and practice. Every generation of Christians must rise to articulate and defend it. The key truth of this sermon is that sinners are acceptable to God only because Christ bore their sin and gave them his righteousness. This Reformation Sunday, we try to understand justification by way of 3 important truths in this passage.

Yahweh’s Priests 1 (Worship Service, October 21, 2018)

Title: Yahweh’s Priests 1

Passage: Exodus 27:20 – 28:5

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: October 21, 2018

The morning we will look at Israel’s ongoing care for the lampstand, and then at the introduction of the high priests in the sanctuary of the Most High. The great overarching idea today is the great glory of the priestly office. If you can get that, then you should be well on your way to appreciating your own calling as a priest, but also adoring your Lord Jesus Christ, who is the preeminent priest of Yahweh.

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.
