LMOT-5 - Deuteronomy: Second Law

“Whatever I command you be careful to observe it, you shall not add
to it nor take away from,” Deuteronomy 12:32.
Welcome to our study of living messages of the Old Testament.
Today we're going to be studying the book of Deuteronomy. As with our
previous lessons, we want to look at each book and consider the context
that it falls and familiarize ourselves with the teaching of it. But just as
important, we also want to see some living application for Christians today
from the old law. We also want to see Jesus in the book of Deuteronomy.
As you think about the book of Deuteronomy, this word means ‘law
again’ or ‘second law.’ God gave the law all to the first generation. They
wondered in the wilderness, and their bodies perished there. Now this
second generation has arisen, and God is going to repeat that law to them
so that they can be faithful to it. They'll know which direction to go and how
to please Him.

LMOT-4 - Numbers: The Wanderings of God's People

“But if you do not do so, take note you have sinned against the Lord
and be sure your sins will find you out,” Numbers 32:23.
Welcome to our study of living messages of the Old Testament.
Today we're studying the book of numbers. As we look at these various
books, we really have a threefold purpose. First want to familiarize
ourselves with these books, note the key characters, and understand their
meaning. Secondly, we want to look at them with an eye toward the
practical. What does the book of Numbers say to us today? How does it
help me to be more faithful to God? What can I look at in Numbers that will
help me to overcome sin or struggles that I face? Then also in each of
these books, we want to look at them with an eye toward Christ. Can we
see Christ in the book of Numbers? What work is He doing here? What
type can we find that sake type of Christ to come?

LMOT-3 - Leviticus: Holiness to the Lord

God said, “You shall be holy for I am holy,” Leviticus 11:44.
Welcome to our study of living messages of the Old Testament. In
this series we're looking at various books in the Old Testament with an eye
toward the practical. How does the book of Genesis, or Exodus, or
Leviticus impact my life today? What can it do to help me live more faithful
to God? Ultimately we're looking at it with an eye toward seeing Christ.
Where is Christ and does that give us any view toward the New
Testament?
The keyword to the book of Leviticus is the word holy or holiness.
This occurs some 87 times in the book. God is teaching His people the law
through the covenant, through sacrifice, and how they can be holy. The
problem is God is holy and His people are sinful or unclean- which occurs
194 times in the book of Leviticus. How can we bridge the gap? How can
we bring sinful man together with a holy and pure God? God's answer is
through the word atonement which occurs 45 times in the book of Leviticus.
Something must make a sacrifice and atonement. Its lifeblood must be
shaded so that the gap between God and man can be bridged.
Now the key verse which we initially begin with is Leviticus 11:44-45.
I want you to notice what God says to the people. God says ‘For I am the
Lord your God. You shall therefore consecrate yourselves and you shall be
holy for I am holy. Neither shall you defile yourselves with any creeping
thing that creeps on the earth for I'm the Lord who brings you up out of the
land of Egypt to be your God you shall therefore be holy for I am holy.’

LMOT-2 - Exodus: The Way Out

“There arose a Pharaoh who did not know Joseph,” Exodus 1:8.
Welcome to our study of living messages of the Old Testament.
Today we're looking at the book of Exodus as we think about God's power
and His deliverance of His people. Exodus is a very interesting book. We
want to think about God's hand, His miracles, and His power in delivering
His people out of captivity.
The word Exodus itself is unique in that it means ‘the way or the road
out.’ A very practical lesson is that God will always deliver or find a way out
for His people if I trust God. If I'm willing to follow God in His way, then God
will always deliver and lead us toward that heavenly home. The key words
‘deliverance’ or ‘redemption’ God is delivering His people out of Egyptian
bondage and captivity. Ultimately He is redeeming them for that Canaan
land promise that He's made.

LMOT-1 - Genesis: God's Book of Beginnings

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth,” Genesis
1:1.
Welcome to our study of living messages of the Old Testament. In
this series of lessons we want to do several things. Think about Genesis 1.
Look at the great characters! God's hand of creation! We want to familiarize
ourselves with the book. In these lessons, more importantly, we want to ask
what does Genesis, what does Exodus, what do these great books of the
Old Testament teach us today? How can they help me to live for God and
live for Christ better? Friend that's exactly what the New Testament says
these books can do. Romans 15:4 says ‘the things that were written
aforetime, specifically the old covenant the Old Testament, was written for
our learning that we through patience and comfort might find hope these
Scriptures.’ These Old Testament lessons can teach us great lessons
about God, about man, and about the hope that we have as a child of God.
