2 Samuel 7:5, 12-13

Hi everyone!

Hope you’re having a great week!  This Sunday for our Creation to Consummation scripture reading, we will be reading together 2 Samuel 7:5, 12-13. 

“Go and tell my servant David, ‘Thus says the LORD:...“When your days are fulfilled and you lie down with your fathers, I will raise up your offspring after you, who shall come from your body, and I will establish his kingdom.  He shall build a house for my name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.”’” 

This passage is monumental within the scope of redemptive history and is known as the Davidic Covenant.  That is, it is covenant, or a solemn promise, that God made with David that someday David would have a son whose throne and kingdom would be established forever.  Clearly this was not a reference to Solomon or even to Solomon’s kingdom which came to an end in 586 BC.  Rather this promise looks forward to the Son of David who would be born a thousand years after him in the little town of Bethlehem and whose kingdom and throne would be established forever and who would overthrow the greatest enemies of God’s people—sin, death, and Satan.  Quite providentially, we will be talking about the coming of the King in triumphant procession this Sunday.  Looking forward to worshipping with you this Sunday at the Throne of Grace.

Blessings,

Leviticus 16:15-16

Hi everyone!

This Sunday we will be reading together for our “Creation to Consummation” reading Leviticus 16:15-16. 

“Then he [the High Priest] shall kill the goat of the sin offering that is for the people and bring its blood inside the veil and do with its blood as he did with the blood of the bull, sprinkling it over the mercy seat and in front of the mercy seat.  Thus he shall make atonement for the Holy Place, because of the uncleannesses of the people of Israel and because of their transgressions, all their sins.” 

This event takes places on what was known on the Jewish calendar as the Day of Atonement.  This was the most important day in the Jewish year.  It was the one day on which the High Priest would enter into the Most Holy Place where the Ark of the Covenant was located, which was considered to be the very throne of God on earth, and there he would take the blood of the sacrificial goat and sprinkle it on the Mercy Seat—the Ark of the Covenant—thereby atoning for the sins of God’s people.  However, this ritual never actually atoned for sins but instead was intended to remind the people of their sinfulness and point them towards their need for a genuine savior (Heb. 10:1-4, 11).  Ultimately, that genuine savior is the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world, who as our great High Priest, offers himself as a sacrifice.  “For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified” (v.14).  Looking forward to Sunday!

Blessings,
