Numbers 29* The offering at the feats of trumpets, and on the day ofatonement. (1-11) Offerings at the feast of tabernacles. (12-40)1-11 There were more sacred solemnities in the seventh monththan in any other. It was the space between harvest andseed-time. The more leisure we have from the pressingoccupations of this life, the more time we should spend in theimmediate service of God. The blowing of the trumpets wasappointed, #Le 22:24|. Here they are directed what sacrifices tooffer on that day. Those who would know the mind of God in theScriptures, must compare one part with another. The latterdiscoveries of Divine light explain what was dark, and supplywhat was wanting, in the former, that the man of God may beperfect. 12-40 Soon after the day of atonement, the day in which menwere to afflict their souls, followed the feast of Tabernacles,in which they were to rejoice before the Lord. Their days ofrejoicing were to be days of sacrifices. A disposition to becheerful does us good, when it encourages our hearts in theduties of God's service. All the days of dwelling in booths theymust offer sacrifices; while we are here in a tabernacle state,it is our interest, as well as our duty, constantly to keep upcommunion with God. The sacrifices for each of the seven daysare appointed. Every day there must be a sin-offering, as in theother feasts. Our burnt-offerings of praise cannot be acceptedof God, unless we have an interest in the great sacrifice whichChrist offered, when he made himself a Sin-offering for us. Andno extraordinary services should put aside stated devotions.Every thing here reminds us of our sinfulness. The life that welive in the flesh must be by the faith of the Son of God; untilwe go to be with him, to behold his glory, and praise his mercy,who hath loved us and washed us from our sins in his own blood.To whom be honour and glory for ever. Amen.
