Life in the Blood

The One Year® Chronological Bible , NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), February 18 When sin exposes Adam and Eve's nakedness, the LORD slays an animal and used its skin to cover the couple's nakedness. God who makes the first sacrifice and establishes the blood of animals as the medium of atonement, to cover man's sin until the way into the Holiest of All is manifest (Hebrews 9:8). It is symbolic. "Abel also brought of the firstborn of his flock and of their fat. And the LORD... Read More

Sins of Omission

The One Year® Chronological Bible , NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), February 17  "If a person sins in hearing the utterance of an oath, and is a witness, whether he has seen or known of the matter-if he does not tell it, he bears guilt" (Lev. 5:1). Have you ever realized later that you should have defended someone's innocence or spoken up in a situation? Have you ever been contaminated by something harmful and not realized it until later? Have you ever made a hasty and... Read More

Reading Leviticus and Dry Toast

  Reading Leviticus is like eating dry toast. Boring and seemingly useless to 21st readers. Or not. Our youngest son is a trend eater. Years ago when he was around eight years old he only wanted four slices of dry toast for breakfast. Without jam. Without butter. For six months. Needless to say, I worried about the quality of his nutritional intake. Until one morning when I removed four slices of bread to place in the toaster and noticed these words on the plastic bag,...

Communal Life

The One Year® Chronological Bible (Tyndale, 2013), February 15 Twelve days of giving followed the anointing of the completed tabernacle for the LORD. Each day one leader from one of the tribes of Israel, beginning with Judah, presented Moses with a dedication offering to the LORD, and the LORD commanded Moses to accept their offerings, "Accept these from them, that they may be used in doing the work of the tabernacle of meeting; and you shall give them to the Levites, to every...

Yesterday's Work, Today's Reward

The One Year® Chronological Bible , NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), February 14 "Then the cloud covered the tabernacle of meeting, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle. And Moses was not able to enter the tabernacle of meeting, because the cloud rested above, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle" (Ex. 40:34-35). The artisans may now rest from the "minutiae of obedience." The fruit of their painstaking labors is about to be revealed. After the tedium... Read More

Work That Breathes Sound Theology

The One Year® Chronological Bible , NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), February 13  Bezalel had no idea of the importance of his work. He just knew that he was gifted by God to do the task set before him. As Bezalel labored over the ark of acacia wood, the poles, and the mercy seat, he had no idea that God's glory would reside over it and that the blood of God's Son would sprinkle its heavenly copy. When Bezalel planed and sanded the table for the show bread and the poles... Read More

Everyone A Contributor

The One Year Chronological Bible, NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), February 12 "Then all the gifted artisans among them who worked on the tabernacle made ten curtains woven of fine linen, and of blue, purple, and scarlet thread; with artistic designs of cherubim they made them" (Ex. 36:8). All the work recorded in chapter 36 tires the eyes and the body. They made the tabernacle . . . The curtains . . . Upright frames . . . The crossbars . . . Bezalel made the ark . .... Read More

People-pleasers Make Poor Leaders

The One Year® Chronological Bible , NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), February 11  Aaron blew it. Aaron failed to lead when the people came to him and demanded an idol, "Come, make us gods that shall go before us" (Ex. 32:1). Aaron became a follower of men rather than a follower of God. The people led him instead of the other way around. Aaron was a people-pleaser. The Bible offers five clues that Aaron was a people pleaser: Moses" absence threatens Aaron's... Read More

God Among His People

The One Year Chronological Bible, NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), February 10  "So I will consecrate the tabernacle of meeting and the altar. I will also consecrate both Aaron and his sons to minister to Me as priests. I will dwell among the children of Israel and will be their God. And they shall know that I am the LORD their God, who brought them up out of the land of Egypt, that I may dwell among them. I am the LORD their God" (Ex. 29:44-46). Ever since man's eviction...

Earthly Pattern, Heaven's Reality

The One Year® Chronological Bible , NKJV (Tyndale, 2013), February 9  Behind every design is a designer-someone with a vision and a piece of paper. God is the Heavenly Designer of redemption. He communicates both His desire and His design to Moses, who oversees its construction on earth. The Lord gives Moses the pattern from which he builds the Tent of Meeting―the place where holy God meets with sinful man. He instructs Moses, "And let them make Me a sanctuary, that I... Read More
