Pastor John Ting discusses the blessings and curses in Leviticus 26. He then looks at two issues (1) The curses seem to picture God as harsh, oppressive, even vindictive; (2) The straight connection of obedience leading to blessings and disobedience to curses is not always true. He concludes with two points of application (1) the obedient will always experience God's blessings but these are often spiritual and non-material; and (2) we need to heed God's discipline.
God in Leviticus declares what is ‘clean’ and ‘unclean’ in terms of the Israelites’ everyday living, hence teaching them that the God who saved them out of Egypt is the Holy God and one who has every right to define the boundaries of holiness! Jesus comes in the NT with radical authority to define ‘clean’ and ‘unclean’ and more so, to make the unclean clean! Pastor Edmund Fong preaches from Leviticus 13:1-11 and 15:31.
An explanation of the different offerings mentioned in Leviticus 6.8-7.38 and how they deal with sin. What makes offerings acceptable or unacceptable to God. Jesus' sacrifice on the Cross makes animal sacrifices obsolete. Christians are now to offer spiritual sacrifices. Pastor John preaches from Leviticus 7:1-10; 28-36.
