Leviticus 27

Leviticus 27 A vow is a promise to God, often as a commitment to give something to God in exchange for him doing something for us, as in: Genesis 28:20 And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give […]

Leviticus 26

Leviticus 26 Physical idols of stone are types of the idols that we have made of men and organizations. Anything that we obey instead of God’s Word is our idol.  Anyone that we exalt as equal to or above God is our idol.  It is a gross sin to exalt the messenger above the God […]

Leviticus 25

Leviticus 25 The Land Sabbath Leviticus 25:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses in mount Sinai, saying, 25:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into the land which I give you, then shall the land keep a sabbath unto the LORD. The land itself is to have a […]

Leviticus 24

Leviticus 24 The command to make the seven branched lampstand of the Menorah [think the seven churches of Revelation 2-3] which would burn pure olive oil to light the court of the tabernacle/temple. The pure olive oil represents the Holy Spirit, the presence and use of which makes the faithful; the light of the world.  […]

Leviticus 23: Holy Days and Festivals

Leviticus 23 Leviticus 23:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 23:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts. The Weekly Sabbath is an unbroken repetitive cycle of seven days as a memorial […]

Leviticus 21 – 22

Leviticus 21 No priest of God may touch any dead body, except that God in his mercy allows the touching of those immediately near of kin to himself.   This is a physical instruction to convey the spiritual lesson that all priests are to remain undefiled by association with the wages of sin which is death.  […]

Leviticus 20

Leviticus 20 In certain seasons of the year and in times of drought children were chosen to be sacrificed and thrown into a blazing fire before the idol of Moloch and various other idols.  The modern version of this practice of sacrificing our children is called abortion.  God expressly forbids this barbaric practice. There is […]

Leviticus 19: Various Laws

Leviticus 19 Leviticus 19:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 19:2 Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye shall be holy: for I the LORD your God am holy. Physical Israel was to be pure from all sin just as God is pure from all sin; […]

Leviticus 14 – 15

Leviticus 14 The cleansing of the leper Hyssop and two clean birds,  pigeons or turtle doves [as the sacrificial birds for the poor] are to be brought to the priest by the healed leper. Hyssop a plant associated with soap and therefore was considered a cleansing agent.  Scarlet is the colour of blood, representative of […]

Leviticus 13

Leviticus 13 Introduction The leper was unclean and could not enter the tabernacle / temple or be touched by anyone until he / she was made clean.  Biblical leprosy is not the same as today’s disease called leprosy, but was generally any disfiguring skin disease. Any disfiguring disease of the skin was lumped together under the […]

Leviticus 11 – 12

Leviticus 11 Before I begin Leviticus 11, I want to point out that the modern Rabbinic movement is an outgrowth of the Hellenic Pharisees of Babylon and Egypt.  These folks have used their own reasoning to create their own traditions which often make the commandments of God of no effect. A classic example of this […]

Leviticus 9 – 10

Leviticus 9 After seven days of consecration in the tabernacle the priests were brought out on the Eighth Day.  The Eighth Day always represents a new beginning and the newly consecrated high priest was presented to the people on the Eighth Day, beginning the Mosaic Aaronic priesthood. The new priesthood then offered a Sin Offering […]

Leviticus 7 – 8

Leviticus 7 Who may eat the offerings Leviticus 7:1 Likewise this is the law of the trespass offering: it is most holy. 7:2 In the place where they kill the burnt offering shall they kill the trespass offering: and the blood thereof shall he sprinkle round about upon the altar. The Trespass offering is a […]

Leviticus 5 – 6

Leviticus 5 Leviticus 5:1 And if a soul sin, and [someone] hear the voice of swearing, and is a witness, whether he hath seen or known of it [if a person witness evil he is to declare it and not to keep the thing secret]; if he do not utter it [refuses to report the […]

Leviticus 3 – 4

Leviticus 3  The Peace Offering All offerings are to be without blemish because blemishes are imperfections representative of sin.  These offerings are to be without any blemish, as the sacrificial animals represent the absolute purity from sin and all uncleanness of Jesus Christ the Lamb of God. 1 Peter 1: 18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye […]

Leviticus 1 – 2

Introduction The Book of Genesis was written as a general history up to Jacob; Exodus is about the calling out from Egypt as a type of the calling out from bondage to sin; Numbers is a history of the wanderings of Israel in the wilderness. Deuteronomy was a recap of the history of Israel from […]

Exodus 37-38

Exodus 37 How the work in building the tabernacle was completed by Bezaleel and Aholiab exactly as inspired by the God who later gave up his Godhood to be made flesh as Jesus Christ.  The tabernacle was built according to the specifications provided by God to Moses.  This is an example of how the spiritually […]

Exodus 39-40

Exodus 39 Moses continues with the preparations for the tabernacle and for the priestly garments. Exodus 39:1 And of the blue, and purple, and scarlet, they made cloths of service [the priestly clothes for their service], to do service in the holy place, and made the holy garments for Aaron; as the LORD commanded Moses. […]

Exodus 35-36

Exodus 35 This chapter is a flash back to the actual building of the tabernacle after Moses came down from the mount and the people had repented; the people gave offerings and the tabernacle was built and pitched outside the camp (Ex 33:7).  Moses gives God’s commandments to all the people. Exodus 35:1 And Moses gathered […]

Exodus 33-34

Exodus 33  Then the YHVH Elohim who became flesh as Jesus Christ the Lamb of God the Father, instructed the people to go in and possess the land; only he said that he would not be with them, but would send an angel in his place.  This because the people were continually provoking him, and if he […]

Exodus 31-32

Exodus 31 Bezaleel and Aholiab are called by God and given skill to work on the things of the priesthood and the tabernacle. Exodus 31:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 31:2 See, I have called by name Bezaleel the son of Uri, the son of Hur [Hur who had helped to hold up Moses’ […]

Exodus 29-30

Exodus 29 The consecration of the priests Exodus 29:1 And this is the thing that thou shalt do unto them to hallow them, to minister unto me in the priest’s office: Take one young bullock, and two rams without blemish, 29:2 And unleavened bread, and cakes unleavened tempered with oil, and wafers unleavened anointed with […]

Exodus 27 The things concerning the altar of Burnt Offerings and the priestly garments.    The altar of burnt offering consisted of an enclosure of acacia wood coated with brass, on the top of which was to be a grate of brass on which to place the sacrifice to be burned up.   Inside the enclosure of […]
