          Beloveds, we must clear up the lie that when the Lord told Joshua he would have good success through obeying the Law, that this was meant for Christians today. The Lord told this to Joshua that in obeying the Old Covenant of the Law God would give him success in conquering certain lands and taking these lands for the nation of Israel: Joshua 1: 5 There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. 6 Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them.
          
          
          
          Also in keeping the Old Covenant of the Law, (which is all they had from God), he would not face the wrath of God and die as Aaron and Moses did for their disobedience to God in not keeping the Old Covenant of the Law: Num. 27: 12 And the LORD said unto Moses, Get thee up into this mount Abarim, and see the land which I have given unto the children of Israel. 13 And when thou hast seen it, thou also shalt be gathered unto thy people, as Aaron thy brother was gathered. 14 For ye rebelled against my commandment in the desert of Zin, in the strife of the congregation, to sanctify me at the water before their eyes: that is the water of Meribah in Kadesh in the wilderness of Zin.
          
          Moses never preached that the Old Covenant of the Law would make anyone permanently righteous in the sight of God. Here is the truth, preached by our Saviour Jesus Christ: Jhn 5:46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.
          
           Luk 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

          Gal 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, THEN CHRIST IS DEAD IN VAIN.
          
          See Galatians 3, which explains God’s purposes for the Law; and how Jesus Christ has delivered us from it for all time. Feel free to study on your own the numerous verses that fully declare that Jesus Christ is the eternal Saviour and final sole source of eternal salvation for all time for all who believe in Him. See John 14:6.

          

          Anyone willfully claiming salvation based on keeping the Old Covenant of the Law and/ or combining it with the New Covenant of Jesus Christ, or anything else is not considered a Christian according to the Bible.

          
          Gal 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, THEN CHRIST IS DEAD IN VAIN.

          
          Gal 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the CURSE: for it is written, CURSED is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. 11 But that NO MAN is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.

          1Ti. 1:5 Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned:6 From which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling;
          7 Desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.

          1Ti 1:9 Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; 11 According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.

          John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

    IF YOU ARE NOT WITH ME YOU ARE AGAINST ME



    Mat 12:30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.  

     Luk11:23 He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth.

    SPIRITUAL WARFARE

    THE HIGH PRIEST WITHIN THE VEIL

    The high priest enters the veil, also having the blood of the bullock with him. He puts the incense upon the fire before the Lord and now a cloud of incense covers the mercy seat above the ark of the testimony and he manages to evade death yet again.

    Lev 16:13 And he shall put the incense upon the fire before the LORD, that the cloud of the incense may cover the mercy seat that is upon the testimony, that he die not:

    The high priest takes the blood of the bullock, dips his finger into it and sprinkles it upon the mercy seat eastward; and then seven times before the mercy seat.

    The high priest goes out of the veil and kills the goat of the sin offering for the people. He returns within the veil and does with the goat’s blood as he did with the blood of the bullock. THUSLY HE MAKES AN ATONEMENT FOR THE ENTIRE HOLY PEOPLE OF ISRAEL!!!

    With the blood of the bullock and the goat he puts it upon the horns of the altar round about then with his finger he sprinkles the blood seven times, thusly cleansing the holy place and the tabernacle and the altar from the defilement of being in the midst of a sinning nation. Some mistakenly think that killing the sacrificed animals for sin was the end of making the atonement for the Levitical priesthood and the people of Israel, but the truth is that IT WAS ONLY THE BEGINNING!!  The high priest has more work to come.

    IF YOU ARE NOT WITH ME YOU ARE AGAINST ME



    SPIRITUAL WARFARE

     

    Children of light, we can praise our God that He has given us a ring side seat as it were through His records, to closely, fully, and intimately see the high priest making the yearly atonement for the people, including himself.

     

    Did the high priest think that a strong drink would come in handy to steady himself at this time? Nothing so foolish would come into his mind for surely he would not fail to remember God’s command:

     

    Lev 10:9 Do not drink wine nor strong drink, thou, nor thy sons with thee, when ye go into the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations:

     

    Earlier we noted that the high priest was forbidden to rest whenever he went into the holy place under pain of death. The bells around the hem of his garment had to sound coming in or out of his work there. Wow!! he had to keep those bells going to evade death and prove that he was not violating God’s command that he must never rest in the holy place.

     

    Did the high priest sweat?

     

    Certainly the high priest moved with fear, deliberate speed and great care, but it is highly unlikely that the holy garments were ever stained with the high priest’s sweat.

     

    Eze 44:18 They shall have linen bonnets upon their heads, and shall have linen breeches upon their loins; they shall not gird themselves with any thing that causeth sweat.

     

    This is God’s house. This is God’s show. This is God’s power. This is God’s will. The high priest is but God’s creation. It is God’s gauntlet the high priest must run perfectly or die.

     

    The high priest kills the bullock that is to be offered for himself and makes an ATONEMENT FOR ALL THE SINS OF THE ENTIRE  HOLY LEVITICAL PRIESTHOOD!!! Next the high priest takes a censer full of burning coals from off the altar before the Lord, and his hands full of finely ground sweet incense.

     

    Next time, saints (G40 hagios), we go with the high priest within the veil.

    love

    IF YOU ARE NOT WITH ME YOU ARE AGAINST ME



    Mat 12:30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.  

     Luk11:23 He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth.

    SPIRITUAL WARFARE

    It would be a mistake to call the things the high priest had to do within the yearly atonement his to do list. Most accurately it MUST BE CALLED HIS DO OR DIE LIST.  Lev 16:17 And there shall be no man in the tabernacle of the congregation when he goeth in to make an atonement in the holy place, until he come out, and have made an atonement for himself, and for his household, and for all the congregation of Israel.

    If anything went wrong with the yearly atonement, the high priest had no one to blame but himself. 

    God makes it clear, again and again, confession alone is NOTHING without the sacrifice for sin: Lev 17:11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.

    ENTER THE HIGH PRIEST

    God has left us His record  to allow us, holy brothers and sisters, to look back in time to see the high priest in the yearly atonement.

    The high priest enters the holy place taking with him one young bullock for a sin offering and one ram for a burnt offering these are for himself and his house-all the Levitical priests and their families.

    He also takes with him from amongst the people two kids (goats) for a sin offering and one ram for a burnt offering for the sins of the people. He casts lots to see which of the goats will be a sin offering to be killed and which will be the scapegoat that is kept alive. 

    Every single animal must be perfect and without any blemish whatsoever.The holy garments are there also: the linen mitre with its gold crown, linen coat, linen robe, linen breeches, the ephod with the curious girdle, the breastplate of judgement covered with precious stones and with the urim and thummim in it. Every piece of the holy garments had significances, not one article of it could be left out:  

    His instructions from God were not optional at all regarding the holy garments:

     

    Exo 28:43 And they shall be upon Aaron, and upon his sons, when they come in unto the tabernacle of the congregation, or when they come near unto the altar to minister in the holy place; that they bear not iniquity, and die: it shall be a statute for ever unto him and his seed after him.

     

     

    The high priest washes himself to evade death before putting on the holy garments:  Exo 30:20 When they go into the tabernacle of the congregation, they shall wash with water, that they die not; or when they come near to the altar to minister, to burn offering made by fire unto the LORD:

     Whew! Every step the high priest takes is fraught with danger as well as hope. Is that wailing we hear in the background as the people afflict their souls?

    love

    IF YOU ARE NOT WITH ME YOU ARE AGAINST ME



    SPIRITUAL WARFARE

    Mat 12:30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.  

     

    Luk11:23 He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth.

     

    That poor old Levitical priesthood. I wonder how many times their sleep was disturbed in the night as they were awakened by desperate penitents needing to confess sins and bringing their sacrifices to get the priests to offer it to be forgiven. Doubtless the Levitical priesthood were often disturbed in their tasks, and family time and given little rest due to penitents streaming in around the clock. Surely they would look forward to the yearly atonement which would serve as but a brief respite, BECAUSE IT LASTED FOR ONLY A DAY!!

     

    The yearly atonement, beloveds, had to be done within the specific timeframe of the month and day set by the command of God.  God would permit no do-overs; no excuses to put it off for another month and day. The work of the yearly atonement was specific in minute detail. The work had to be executed perfectly, because God allowed NO omissions or mistakes. Any such things could result in the death of the high priest. The Watchers (the eyes of God) never left watching over the atonement nor any portion of the Law.

    Surely the heart of the high priest beat with the certain awful knowledge that he absolutely had to get it right the first time or die! Did the yearly atonement last a year.  NO, BROTHERS AND SISTERS. ALTHOUGH THE ATONEMENT WAS COMMANDED BY GOD TO BE DONE YEARLY, IT LASTED FOR ONLY ONE DAY, ONE DAY ONLY!!

    No doubt many will come to understand what the covenant of the Law is. Sadly there will be some others failing in this and attempting to make an amalgam of the Law with the new covenant of Grace, which God absolutely forbids. Neither understanding or knowing what they teach, they become vain babblers, offering futile hope, and works of the flesh that cannot save.

    IF YOU ARE NOT WITH ME YOU ARE AGAINST ME



     

    SPIRITUAL WARFARE

     

    We leave the penitents  including all  of the priests as well as the people, after their daily sacrifices for sin saved, but not safe. Their cleansing and forgiveness -a temporary thing lasting only until they commit the next sin.

    Guilt clings to their consciences like a soiled rag for they surely know they will sin again, and again and again and risk death each and every time lest they flee to the high priest to confess and take a sacrifice per each sin to die in their place. 

    Did they fearfully awake in the night in a cold sweat, searching their minds for any missed sins that needed to be confessed? Did they constantly remind themselves to keep the best of the herds on standby for they will surely be needed?

    There was never any permanent rest for the priesthood, they were in charge of continual around the clock, and daily sacrifices. On top of all this they still had to make a yearly sacrifice as well to atone for the sins of themselves and the people as a whole. However it is necessary for us to understand that they also had to purge out the temple and everything in it with various blood sacrifices to cleanse it, for it was defiled just being in the presence of unclean sinners. TRULY THIS WAS A WORKS MINISTRY AND A VERY POOR INADEQUATE ONE AT THAT!

    Lev 16:29 And this shall be a statute for ever unto you: that in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, ye shall afflict your souls, and do no work at all, whether it be one of your own country, or a stranger that sojourneth among you: 30 For on that day shall the priest make an atonement for you, to cleanse you, that ye may be clean from all your sins before the LORD. 31 It shall be a sabbath of rest unto you, and ye shall afflict your souls, by a statute for ever. 32And the priest, whom he shall anoint, and whom he shall consecrate to minister in the priest's office in his father's stead, shall make the atonement, and shall put on the linen clothes, even the holy garments:33 And he shall make an atonement for the holy sanctuary, and he shall make an atonement for the tabernacle of the congregation, and for the altar, and he shall make an atonement for the priests, and for all the people of the congregation. 34 And this shall be an everlasting statute unto you, to make an atonement for the children of Israel for all their sins once a year. And he did as the LORD commanded Moses.
