Numbers 28

Smith's Bible CommentarySmith's Commentary

Verses 1-31

Chapter 28

The twenty-eighth chapter God sort of reiterates some of the commandments concerning the sacrifices. Every day they were to offer-every day of the year they were to offer two lambs as a sacrifice to the Lord, one lamb in the morning, one lamb in the evening; one during the morning oblations or prayers, another during the evening oblations or prayers. And so twice a day at least, there were these two lambs that were offered and the smoke would go up with the prayers of the people as a sweat smelling incense before the Lord. And they would offer daily in the morning and evening a lamb. That was just a daily-and every day of the year this would occur.

However, on the first day of the month, then they were to offer more animals on the first day of every month. They were to offer two bullocks, one ram, and seven lambs of the first year without spot. And then they were-and the Passover time to offer the animals, the goats and all, in the Passover time. And then also for the first fruits or Pentecost he gives them the orders of the animals that were to be offered during that period.

So chapter twenty-eight deals with the sacrifices, the types of animals, the type of drink offerings and meal offerings that were to be offered to God daily and then annually on special occasions. And so, just sort of the repetition of some of the earlier commands that we had in Leviticus. Just sort of reinforcing that which he commanded earlier. So next week we'll finish the book of Numbers as we get into chapter twenty-nine and we'll begin there and finish the book of Numbers next week.

Shall we stand. "God is so good. God is so good. God is so good, He's so good to me. Jesus is real. Jesus is real. Jesus is real, He's so real to me. He saved my saved soul. He saved my soul. He saved my soul, and He made me whole. I praise his name. I praise his name. I praise His name, He's so good to me."

I realize that some of you may have come to church tonight in order that you might get saved and that's a good idea. And so you can go back to the prayer room at this time and some of the pastors will go back there and meet with you and pray with you and lead you into a real relationship with Jesus Christ. If you came tonight in order that you might get saved, don't get disappointed and don't go home without being saved. So just go on back to the prayer room at this time as soon as we're dismissed and the pastors will meet with you there.

May God bless you and just give you a beautiful week. May you experience really, the living presence of the living God within your life. Not needing any relics, but just be conscience of the nearness of God and of God's great love wherein He loves you. He loves you so much that he doesn't see anything wrong with you. Isn't that neat? Man, that's more than my wife loves me and she loves me an awful, awful lot. Oh, so glorious to be walking with the Lord and serving Him. May God just fill your life with joy, praises and thanksgiving all week long. "
