Jesus—God’s Ultimate Revelation

Whitney Capps

In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. - Hebrews 1

I’ve waited through silent moments with God. Days, weeks and even months.

Pay Attention or Drift Away

Leah DiPascal

We must pay the most careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away. - Hebrews 2

Pay attention! These two words have rolled off my tongue more times than I’d like to admit.

Unbelief Brings Unrest

Krista Williams

So we see that they were not able to enter, because of their unbelief. - Hebrews 3

During the first century, many Jews put their faith in Jesus Christ. It was a big change, and it came with some big challenges.

Why Should I Be Excited About Leviticus?

Lysa TerKeurst

If the offering is a burnt offering from the herd, you are to offer a male without defect. You must present it at the entrance to the tent of meeting so that it will be acceptable to the LORD. - Leviticus 1

Can I admit something to you about the book of Leviticus? I’ve never really been excited about studying it.

The Grain Offering

Wendy Blight

If you bring a grain offering baked in an oven, it is to consist of the finest flour: either thick loaves made without yeast and with olive oil mixed in or thin loaves made without yeast and brushed with olive oil. - Leviticus 2

The question continually before us in Leviticus is this: How can a sinful person come into the presence of a holy God? In Leviticus 1, it was through the burnt offering.

A Pleasing Aroma

Wendy Pope

It is a food offering, an aroma pleasing to the LORD. - Leviticus 3

When I hear the words pleasing aroma, I think of my favorite scented candle, not an animal carcass burning over an open flame. It’s difficult for us to understand how such an aroma could be pleasing to God.

The Sin Offering

Krista Williams

They are to lay their hand on the head of the sin offering and slaughter it at the place of the burnt offering. - Leviticus 4

God doesn’t wink at sin or overlook it. He doesn’t say, “I know she is a good person.” Or “He means well.” Instead, God says, “There is no one righteous, not even one.” (Romans 3:10; Psalms 14:3).

The Ground Is Level at the Cross

Leah DiPascal

Anyone who cannot afford a lamb is to bring two doves or two young pigeons to the LORD as a penalty for their sin—one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering … If, however, they cannot afford two doves or two young pigeons, they are to bring as an offering for their sin a tenth of an ephah of the finest flour for a sin offering. - Leviticus 5

Is what I have to offer enough? Will it be acceptable to God?

Keep the Fire Burning

Whitney Capps

The fire on the altar must be kept burning; it must not go out. Every morning the priest is to add firewood and arrange the burnt offering on the fire and burn the fat of the fellowship offerings on it. The fire must be kept burning on the altar continuously; it must not go out. - Leviticus 6

Leviticus is the handbook for the priests. After reading just the first several chapters, I can tell you I would have needed a helpful reminder of exactly what God expected for each of these unique offerings and priestly protocols.

How Great the Weight

Wendy Pope

These, then, are the regulations for the burnt offering, the grain offering, the sin offering, the guilt offering, the ordination offering and the fellowship offering. - Leviticus 7

It’s easy to become overwhelmed when reading regulation after regulation. So many different requirements for each type of sin.

Anointing of the High Priest

Wendy Blight

hen Moses took the anointing oil and anointed the tabernacle and everything in it, and so consecrated them. He sprinkled some of the oil on the altar seven times, anointing the altar and all its utensils and the basin with its stand, to consecrate them. He poured some of the anointing oil on Aaron’s head and anointed him to consecrate him. - Leviticus 8

In Leviticus 8, the time had arrived for Moses to perform the consecration and ordination of the priests established in Exodus 29. Since God’s holy presence resided within the Most Holy Place in the tabernacle, it was critical that the tabernacle and all who served in it be holy as well.

The Priests’ First Day On the Job

Krista Williams

Moses and Aaron then went into the tent of meeting. When they came out, they blessed the people; and the glory of the LORD appeared to all the people. - Leviticus 9

After the public consecration ceremony of God’s appointed priests, it was mandatory for Aaron and his sons to remain at the entrance of the tabernacle for a week to complete the ordination process. Moses made it clear if they failed to do what the Lord required they would die. (Leviticus 8:35)

Don’t Get Burned

Whitney Capps

Aaron’s sons Nadab and Abihu took their censers, put fire in them and added incense; and they offered unauthorized fire before the LORD, contrary to his command. So fire came out from the presence of the LORD and consumed them, and they died before the LORD. - Leviticus 10

Leviticus 8 ends with this affirming verse, “So Aaron and his sons did everything the LORD commanded through Moses” (Leviticus 8:36). Yet only a short time later, the fire of God’s judgment kills those same sons of Aaron for failing to follow God’s rules and honoring His holiness.

Jesus: Taken from Among Men

Wendy Blight

He is able to deal gently with those who are ignorant and are going astray, since he himself is subject to weakness. - Hebrews 5

In Hebrews 5, the author continues presenting his case for the superiority of Christ. This time demonstrating how Jesus perfectly fulfilled two primary qualifications of the high priest: appointed by God and taken from among men.

How Can I Discern God’s Ways?

Lysa TerKeurst

You must distinguish between the unclean and the clean, between living creatures that may be eaten and those that may not be eaten. - Leviticus 11

Remember in Leviticus 1 we learned about the importance of not just looking at the activities God was requiring from His children but even more so at the attitude He was developing in His children? In Leviticus 11, I want to build on that thought with this prayer, “Lord, help me learn Your wisdom so I can discern Your ways.”

Embracing the Sacred Moments

Leah DiPascal

She must not touch anything sacred or go to the sanctuary until the days of her purification are over. - Leviticus 12

It today’s reading of Leviticus 12 we get a glimpse into the lives of the Israelite women and discover what their days may have been like following the extraordinary experience of childbirth. This important time of post-delivery was different based on whether an Israelite woman gave birth to a baby boy or girl.

Disease Details

Whitney Capps

As long as they have the disease they remain unclean. They must live alone; they must live outside the camp. - Leviticus 13

This section of Leviticus outlines the contaminating effects of skin diseases. For Israel, leaving an invasive, contagious disease unchecked meant endangering the entire nation.

The Reason for Restrictions

Wendy Pope

The LORD said to Moses, ‘These are the regulations for any diseased person at the time of their ceremonial cleansing, when they are brought to the priest.' - Leviticus 14

Leviticus 14 is full of instructions concerning purification and ceremonial cleanliness. In the last chapter, we learned about the diagnosing of skin rashes and handling of infectious mildew.

Maintaining Sexual Purity

Krista Williams

You must keep the Israelites separate from things that make them unclean, so they will not die in their uncleanness for defiling my dwelling place, which is among them. - Leviticus 15

In Leviticus 15 we find God’s regulations concerning male and female bodily discharge. The details of this chapter are very specific and reveal the fact that both normal sexual discharge or discharge from an infection would render a person unclean for a certain time.

An Anchor For My Soul

Leah DiPascal

We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, where our forerunner, Jesus, has entered on our behalf. He has become a high priest forever, in the order of Melchizedek. - Hebrews 6

Has someone ever broken a promise to you that’s left your heart all mangled up inside? Maybe the memory of that broken promise resurfaces from time to time—stirring up old emotions, challenging your security in the relationship and causing you to lose hope in that person all over again.

Our Eternal, Exalted High Priest

Whitney Capps

Unlike the other high priests, he does not need to offer sacrifices day after day, first for his own sins, and then for the sins of the people. He sacrificed for their sins once for all when he offered himself. - Hebrews 7

Do you know the name Melchizedek? He is mentioned in Scripture only a handful of times.

The Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur)

Wendy Blight

The LORD said to Moses: ‘Tell your brother Aaron that he is not to come whenever he chooses into the Most Holy Place behind the curtain in front of the atonement cover on the ark, or else he will die. For I will appear in the cloud over the atonement cover.’ - Leviticus 16

Leviticus 16 continued a plan God had set in motion long before that day. It established the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur), the annual day of purification for the Jews.

There Is Power in the Blood

Wendy Blight

But when Christ came as high priest of the good things that are now already here, he went through the greater and more perfect tabernacle that is not made with human hands, that is to say, is not a part of this creation. He did not enter by means of the blood of goats and calves; but he entered the Most Holy Place once for all by his own blood, thus obtaining eternal redemption. - Hebrews 9

We’ve heard the familiar saying, "Seeing is believing." But that is not so with faith. It is in only in our believing first that we will see the things of God.

God’s Greatest Sorrow

Lysa TerKeurst

Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. - Hebrews 10

The deepest sorrow we could ever drape over our God is our refusal to believe He loves us. Because the minute we diminish His love is the minute we doubt every other promise He gives us.

Life Is in the Blood

Wendy Pope

For the life of a creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you to make atonement for yourselves on the altar; it is the blood that makes atonement for one’s life. - Leviticus 17

I’ve always been squeamish about blood and around blood; therefore, I tend to skim over passages of Scripture that deal with blood. Today’s key verse was no different.

A Pure Pursuit

Leah DiPascal

Do not defile yourselves in any of these ways, because this is how the nations that I am going to drive out before you became defiled … Everyone who does any of these detestable things—such persons must be cut off from their people. - Leviticus 18

How can a broken world be drawn to a holy God when His children continuously behave badly? As believers, one of the things that should differentiate us from the world is our behavior … if we’re behaving according to God’s guidelines.

Rewards and Punishments

Krista Williams

But if they will confess their sins and the sins of their ancestors—their unfaithfulness and their hostility toward me, which made me hostile toward them so that I sent them into the land of their enemies—then when their uncircumcised hearts are humbled and they pay for their sin, I will remember my covenant with Jacob and my covenant with Isaac and my covenant with Abraham, and I will remember the land. - Leviticus 26

Consider Him

Krista Williams

Hebrews 11 is often referred to the “Hall of Faith” because it lists heroes from the Old Testament who believed God and waited faithfully on the promises He had made to them. None of these heroes received all that God had promised in their lifetime here on earth. (Hebrews 11:39) Although they trusted God and won His approval, they only experienced glimpses of what was specifically promised. (Hebrews 11:13). They lived in faith, never losing their vision of what was to come, and remained faithful up until their last breath. We can learn so much about perseverance, trust, and faith by reading their personal stories in Scripture. Take time to read Hebrews 11 and learn the names of these heroes. Pause for a moment and consider how you would have handled their tough circumstances if you were facing them today. Is your faith strong enough or do you need to ask God for more? Major Moments: The teaching of faith in action and a list of those who were commended for it - Hebrews 12

Have you ever felt physically and emotionally stretched to the point where you were unsure how much more you could endure? Maybe you are overwhelmed right now, and you have no enthusiasm or energy left?
