          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



    SPIRITUAL WARFARE

     

    We are commanded by God, saints (G40 hagios) to fully understand the Mosaic Law also known as  the Old Covenant of the Law and to wholly grasp its true meaning, lest we vainly attempt to mix it or see it as the same thing as the Law of Grace or the New Covenant.  God’s core purpose and function of the Mosaic Law under the high priest was for it to obtain forgiveness for the people individually each day and as a whole yearly to escape the penalty of the Law.

     

    Num 8:19 

    And I have given the Levites as a gift to Aaron and to his sons from among the children of Israel, to do the service of the children of Israel in the tabernacle of the congregation, and to make an atonement for the children of Israel: that there be no plague among the children of Israel, when the children of Israel come nigh unto the sanctuary.

     

    Again it is absolutely vital to fully understand and conclude that between confession of sin to God and forgiveness by God for the people daily or as a whole there always has to be a high priest who acts as a mediator between man and God; ordained and appointed by God.

     

    This high priest/mediator alone is commanded and ordained by God, to offer the perfect unblemished blood sacrifice for himself and the people individually each day and yearly as a whole, to gain forgiveness and make reconciliation between men and God.  

     

    Again, and again, holy brethren, it is vital to understand that while God demanded the confession of penitent sinners their confession of itself or alone absolutely could not gain any forgiveness from God.  This then is the non- negotiable pattern that God commanded, ordained and established Under the Law regarding daily individual sacrifice for sin. It goes like this: 

        1.The person confesses to the high priest his sin known or unknown.

     

    2. God allows the person to take an animal without blemish to die in his place so that he does not have to die for his own sins. Sometimes something other than an animal could be taken for sacrifice, if the man was too poor and did not own an animal. However the yearly sacrifice to gain forgiveness for the people as a whole GOD DEMANDED that certain perfect unblemished animals had to be sacrificed-no exceptions.

     

    3. The animal is slain in place of the man and the high priest takes it blood to offer to God to make atonement and gain God’s forgiveness for the person.

     

    4. The person escapes death and is forgiven only until he commits the next sin. This cycle must be repeated for each sin, even the same sin if repeated.

    Keep in mind that for some sins death was automatic and for which no sacrifice could be made. 

    NOTE: When you find this pattern brought into modern day so called the "confessing churches" proudly boasting of keeping "short accounts" and busy confessing all their sins around the clock this is the Law falsely labeled as grace. Ain't no grace in the Law. Furthermore every thing in their physical building is "holy" except the people for whom Christ died. It is no wonder that depression and suicide is likely to be found here.

     Next let us take a look at the yearly atonement for the people as a whole.

    love

    IF YOU ARE NOT WITH ME YOU ARE AGAINST ME



    SPIRITUAL WARFARE

     

    It is vital that we understand the Mosaic Law from within the absolute truth of the Bible. God forbids the mixing of the Law with Grace. In spiritual warfare one of the devils tricks is to try to lure God’s people away from Grace and back to the Law of condemnation.

     

    Our thorough correct understanding of the Law, protects us from turning away from Grace to go back to the Law that Christ has delivered us from.

     

    God demanded the whole Old Covenant of the Law to be obeyed without exception. He did not give anyone the option or authority to pick out and obey only the laws that they liked. The people certainly loved God, but also obeyed because the penalty for sin under the Law is the curse and death.

     

    The Bible confirms from the Old Testament to the New Testament that the whole law must be obeyed.

     

     Deu. 27:26:  Cursed [be] he that confirmeth not [all] the words of this law to do them. And all the people shall say, Amen.

     

    Jam. 2:10:  For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one [point], he is guilty of all.

     

    Throughout the year when the penitent sinners confessed their sins to God, they well understood that forgiveness could only be obtained if it were also accompanied by the priests offering of a sacrifice to make atonement. No sin was too small or could be overlooked. Even if the people sinned ignorantly they were still considered guilty. The people were guilty even if they committed sins of omission, as well as overt or covert sins. The people were also considered guilty if they knew of someone else’s sin and kept it hidden. The people could along with their own sins, confess those of their fathers and their nation.

     

    Although there was a yearly sacrifice of atonement for the people as a whole, God still required that each of the people confess their sins knowingly or otherwise throughout the year and offer the appropriate atonement through the priests to gain God’s forgiveness.

     

    Let us keep in mind as mentioned earlier that the people were highly motivated to confess sin out of love for God as well as to avoid the penalty of the Law. For this cause we can well understand the necessity of their keeping short accounts as unconfessed sin could bring severe punishment, including death. The whole order of priests also had to confess and make atonement for their own individual sins throughout the year as well, or suffer the same consequences under the law:

     

    Lev. 4:3 If the priest that is anointed do sin according to the sin of the people; then let him bring for his sin, which he hath sinned, a young bullock without blemish unto the LORD for a sin offering.

    IF YOU ARE NOT WITH ME YOU ARE AGAINST ME



    SPIRITUAL WARFARE

     

    We see here, brethren, from looking at the Law, that God absolutely dissuaded anyone from ever seeing or understanding Him portrayed as some wimp wringing His Holy hands, weeping in helpless sadness over bad sinners not doing right. For under the Law the fear, wrath, and terror of the dread sovereign Lord God, reigned with fierce zeal. The smell of the numerous priestly sacrifices, and its ashes being made some around the clock, in hopes of evading death, and gain forgiveness,  must have stung the peoples’ nostrils and made their hearts quake with fear. Men were taught full well that God had no deal with mankind to let it run wild and unchecked.

     

    God checked the father of lies the devil in the garden, and mankind as well. He checked mankind in the flood. He checked mankind at Sodom and Gomorrah. He checked kings, peoples and nations. And now He checked mankind body, mind and soul in THE THRESHING FLOOR OF THE LAW.

     

    Lev. 16: 2 And the LORD said unto Moses, Speak unto Aaron thy brother, that he come not at all times into the holy place within the vail before the mercy seat, which is upon the ark; that he die not: for I will appear in the cloud upon the mercy seat.

     

    God makes it clear that the most Holy Place within the vail is not the high priests play pen or hang out, and attempts to do so would result in the high priests death.  In the Law the times the high priest could enter within the vail was meticulously given in minute detail. God, not man makes the rules, no one is exempt, obey God or die-NO EXCEPTIONS. 

     

    GOT DELINQUENCY?

     

    The Law of God had the cure:

     

    Deu. 21: 18  If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them 19 Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place; 20 And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard. 21 And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.

     

    God rules with an iron hand in every aspect of life in the Law. Obedience is rewarded, and punishment for disobedience is swift and at times lethal. Every blow that God strikes at mankind, nevertheless, is tempered, every one of them, by His mercy and love, otherwise no flesh could live.

     Next time, dear children of God, let us look into specific aspects of the duties  of the high priest, and the purpose they served under the law.

    love (agape)

    IF YOU ARE NOT WITH ME YOU ARE AGAINST ME



    SPIRITUAL WARFARE

    In the mist of the glory and the splendor of the Law-sin reigned unto death, condemnation and the curse. The high priests served with reverence and fear for good reason. The Lord God who designed all the Levitical priesthood’s clothing and the accompanying articles for service had a death sentence attached to them as well. As we examine the Levitical high priest, every one of them were just sinful men, none of whom could appear before God or do service without wearing the complete garments and instruments for service designed by God which gave these sinful men only AN OUTER RIGHTEOUSNESS.

    Further we note that before they could offer sacrifice for the sins of the people, they FIRST had to offer a sacrifice for themselves and the priests under them along with all of their households.  Absolutely no one including the high priests and its prophets were exempt from the Law. If the high priest sinned without repentance not even his garb for religious service could protect him from death, this was true for the prophet as well. There were certain sins for which no sacrifice could be made, which could result automatically in death, for any individual or even the whole nation.

    COVER YOUR BUTT AND YOUR PRIVATES

    Exo. 28:42And thou shalt make them linen breeches to cover their nakedness; from the loins even unto the thighs they shall reach: 43And 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.

    Holy brothers and sisters the point here is the great abhorrence of God regarding mere sinful human flesh. God’s abhorrence is so great that the sentence was death for any of the priests even appearing before God with their private parts uncovered. The point here is that this is God's lethal reminder to the understanding and conscience of all mankind - GOD HATES SIN! THE  SOUL THAT SINNETH, IT SHALL DIE.  

    Eze 18:4 Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.

     

    Let us stop here for now, saints (G40 hagios), with the understanding that God is in charge and in control of everything, and everyone is absolutely accountable to God.  God holds mankind in check according to His sovereign will. Regardless of bumbling, stumbling, arrogant, greedy, sinful men we see that the INEXORABLE UNSTOPPABLE WILL OF GOD  is nonetheless forever triumphant.

    love
