. continuing on with WHY. WHERE. WHEN.
. WHEN. OT first. one book at a time. CONTINUAL DAILY offering. then we will proceed to the NT.
. this is going to get tedious at times. it must be done.
. remember what I have stressed before. I will continue to stress again. the sin offering has been made. once and for all. it never has to be made again. The Lord Jesus paid the price for our redemption once and for all. these scriptures about the whole burnt offering, and the burning of incense, in the OT, are for us, now, a type of worship.
. Exodus 29:38,39,41,42-46. …DAY by DAY CONTINUALLY. offer in the MORNING. offer at EVEN. offer at EVEN. offering of the MORNING. CONTINUAL burnt offering throughout your generations…before the Lord…where I will meet you, to speak there unto thee. and there I will meet with the children of Israel…and I will sanctify…and I will dwell…
. Exodus 30:7,8. sweet incense every MORNING…lighteth the lamps at EVEN…burn incense…a PERPETUAL incense before the Lord throughout your generations.
. Leviticus 6:8-13. and the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, command Aaron and his sons, saying, This is the law of the burnt offering: (this word translated law is torah. it means teaching.) It is the burnt offering, because of the burning upon the altar all night unto the MORNING, and the fire of the altar shall be burning in it….and the fire upon the altar shall be burning in it; IT SHALL NOT BE PUT OUT…priest shall burn… every MORNING…he shall burn thereon…the fire shall ever be burning upon the altar; IT SHALL NEVER GO OUT.
. a comment here. has the Holy Ghost Fire in you ever gone out? have you ever lost the zeal of God that you had when you first came to Him? have you ever felt dry, despondent, not sure any more about anything? no more ideas about how to keep on keeping on? no longer on fire for God? tired? just burnt out?
. concerning the burnt offering, (worship), the priest was not to let the fire EVER GO OUT! how is that possible? how do you keep the fire from going out? how do you burn PERPETUALLY for God? white hot? fire! heat! CONTINUALLY! fire that burns up sin and flesh and discouragement! fire that burns up despondency and tiredness and circumstances! Holy Ghost fire that burns PERPETUALLY for God! Holy Ghost fire that NEVER GOES OUT!?
. you feed the fire EVERYDAY! not once a week. you put the fuel of worship, on the altar, on the fire, EVERYDAY! you get up in the MORNING and you worship Him. that sanctifies the DAY. that keeps the fire burning for the DAY. when EVENING comes, and tiredness wants to creep in, you worship Him. that sanctifies the NIGHT. that keeps the fire burning for the NIGHT. He knows better than we do. Especially in the times that we are living in. These are HIS instructions for us.This is the way HE has chosen for us. He has given us His Word. His Instruction, His Teaching. He knows how to keep the fire from EVER GOING OUT.
