Overview:
The Offering at the Feast of Trumpets, and On the Day of
Atonement. (1-11) Offerings at the Feast of Tabernacles. (12-40)

1-11 There were more sacred solemnities in the seventh Month
than in any other. It was the space between Harvest and
seed-time. The more leisure we have from the pressing
occupations of this Life, the more time we should spend in the
immediate service of God. The blowing of the Trumpets was
appointed, Le 22:24. Here they are directed what sacrifices to
offer On that Day. Those who would know the mind of God in the
Scriptures, must compare one part with another. The latter
discoveries of Divine Light explain what was dark, and supply
what was wanting, in the former, that the Man of God may be
perfect.

12-40 Soon after the Day of Atonement, the Day in which men
were to afflict their souls, followed the Feast of Tabernacles,
in which they were to rejoice before the Lord. Their days of
rejoicing were to be days of sacrifices. A disposition to be
cheerful does us good, when it encourages our hearts in the
duties of God's service. All the days of dwelling in booths they
must offer sacrifices; while we are here in a Tabernacle state,
it is our interest, as Well as our duty, constantly to keep up
Communion with God. The sacrifices for each of the Seven days
are appointed. Every Day there must be a Sin-Offering, as in the
other feasts. Our burnt-offerings of praise cannot be accepted
of God, unless we have an interest in the great Sacrifice which
Christ offered, when he made himself a Sin-Offering for us. And
No extraordinary services should Put aside stated devotions.
Every thing here reminds us of our sinfulness. The Life that we
live in the Flesh must be By the Faith of the Son of God; until
we 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.
