Leviticus 10

And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the Lord, which he commanded them not.

And there went out fire from the Lord, and devoured them, and they died before the Lord.

Then Moses said unto Aaron, This is it that the Lord spake, saying, I will be sanctified in them that come nigh me, and before all the people I will be glorified. And Aaron held his peace.

And Moses called Mishael and Elzaphan, the sons of Uzziel the uncle of Aaron, and said unto them, Come near, carry your brethren from before the sanctuary out of the camp.

So they went near, and carried them in their coats out of the camp; as Moses had said.

And Moses said unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar and unto Ithamar, his sons, Uncover not your heads, neither rend your clothes; lest ye die, and lest wrath come upon all the people: but let your brethren, the whole house of Israel, bewail the burning which the Lord hath kindled.

And ye shall not go out from the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, lest ye die: for the anointing oil of the Lord is upon you. And they did according to the word of Moses.

And the Lord spake unto Aaron, saying,

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:

10 And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean;

11 And that ye may teach the children of Israel all the statutes which the Lord hath spoken unto them by the hand of Moses.

12 And Moses spake unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar and unto Ithamar, his sons that were left, Take the meat offering that remaineth of the offerings of the Lord made by fire, and eat it without leaven beside the altar: for it is most holy:

13 And ye shall eat it in the holy place, because it is thy due, and thy sons’ due, of the sacrifices of the Lord made by fire: for so I am commanded.

14 And the wave breast and heave shoulder shall ye eat in a clean place; thou, and thy sons, and thy daughters with thee: for they be thy due, and thy sons’ due, which are given out of the sacrifices of peace offerings of the children of Israel.

15 The heave shoulder and the wave breast shall they bring with the offerings made by fire of the fat, to wave it for a wave offering before the Lord; and it shall be thine, and thy sons’ with thee, by a statute for ever; as the Lord hath commanded.

16 And Moses diligently sought the goat of the sin offering, and, behold, it was burnt: and he was angry with Eleazar and Ithamar, the sons of Aaron which were left alive, saying,

17 Wherefore have ye not eaten the sin offering in the holy place, seeing it is most holy, and God hath given it you to bear the iniquity of the congregation, to make atonement for them before the Lord?

18 Behold, the blood of it was not brought in within the holy place: ye should indeed have eaten it in the holy place, as I commanded.

19 And Aaron said unto Moses, Behold, this day have they offered their sin offering and their burnt offering before the Lord; and such things have befallen me: and if I had eaten the sin offering to day, should it have been accepted in the sight of the Lord?

20 And when Moses heard that, he was content.

  1. 3 Then Moses said unto Aaron, This is it that the Lord spake, saying, I will be sanctified in them that come nigh me, and before all the people I will be glorified. And Aaron held his peace.

    The lord is saying here in this verse that if we draw nigh unto him and give him our worship that he will be glorified in our praises, in translations he’s basically telling us that if we give him our all in praise and worship that he will us him and his anointing in our life so we must be willing to put him first no matter goes on in our lives.

  2. The Importance of Starting Well
    Leviticus 10:9-11 It shall be a statute forever throughout your generations, that you may distinguish between holy and Wholy, and between and unclean and clean, and that you may teach the children of Israel all the statutes which the Lord has spoken to them by the hand of Moses.

    God does not take it lightly when the leaders he calls disregard his commandments. When Nadab and Abihu broke God’s laws ( Leviticus 10:1-7). He executed them on the spot. The Same principal came into play in the new church when God took the lives of Ananias and Sapphira (Acts 5:1-11).

    As holy priests and trusted leaders, they were supposed to model obedience for the people.

    We must keep God’s commandments and we must not compromise.

  3. 10 And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean;

    11 And that ye may teach the children of Israel all the statutes which the Lord hath spoken unto them by the hand of Moses.

    Know it and teach it!
    As parents and leaders it is important that we constantly gain knowledge and teach it to our children and those we lead. The Bible warns us that if we know to do good and do not do it, to God that is sin. It is equally as sinful to not teach others what we know.

    I often find myself so busy that I don’t do as much teaching as needed. Sometime we have to slow down long enough to see others are lack out of ignorance and help them gain the knowledge they need.

  4. Leviticus 10:1

    1-2 That same day Nadab and Abihu, Aaron’s sons, took their censers, put hot coals and incense in them, and offered “strange” fire to God—something God had not commanded. Fire blazed out from God and consumed them—they died in God’s presence.

    Leviticus 10:3
    After Nadab and Abihu were killed, Moses explained to Aaron why God had done such a harsh thing: “This is what the LORD spoke of when he said: ‘Among those who approach me I will show myself holy; in the sight of all the people I will be honored’” (Leviticus 10:3).

    Some where these two boys were disobedient in how they approached God….
    living for God must be taken seriously. As we come before God’s presence we must come before Him with a humble heart. Attitude actions character humility in approaching the throne of God. Teaching reverence to the things of God . Not brushing off what has been instructed . These boys ended up dead because they did not approach God with reverence . I pray that as we approach God it will be with a sincere heart offering praises and thanksgiving as we come before Him. In Jesus Name
    Obedience to Gods commandments are important there is way of life He wants us to live. We cannot just do it our way.

    Discipline and obedience………..
    Hebrews 12:11
    11 No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.

  5. FIRST THE KINGDOM
    NO STRANGE FIRE

    1 And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the Lord, which he commanded them not.
    2 And there went out fire from the Lord, and devoured them, and they died before the Lord.

    Sadly this powerful demonstration of deception has played out numerous times over the generations. GOD judged so strongly because HE considered it a form of Spiritual adultery. The word STRANGE is in the Hebrew “zuwr” and means that of the word we get “estranged” or apart and alienated.

    The FIRE in the sensor was to be from the altar of sacrifice, but they choose to take the fire from another source. It is never wise for us to attempt to substitute anything; gifts, talent, resources for PRAYER and SACRIFICE on the ALTAR. The FIRE on the altar had apparently been untended and at the time of worship the sons of Aaron attempted to bring another form of FIRE. But, GOD knows the FIRE from the ALTAR that must never Burn out.

    May the FIRE on my ALTAR never burn out.

  6. Lev 10:1 And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the LORD, which he commanded them not.

    You got a lotta folk out there today offering up strange fire y’all. Anything that can’t be found in the Bible is strange fire. Anything that contradicts doctrine found in the Word is strange doctrine y’all. We all must be weary of bringing false doctrine into the pulpit lest we be judged

  7. “And Moses diligently sought the goat of the sin offering, and, behold, it was burnt: and he was angry with Eleazar and Ithamar, the sons of Aaron which were left alive, saying,”
    ‭‭Leviticus‬ ‭10:16‬ ‭KJV‬‬
    https://www.bible.com/1/lev.10.16.kjv

    What does it mean to diligently sought?

    The words diligently sought mean in the strongs
    darash
    Verb daw-rash’
    a primitive root
    a primitive root; properly, to tread or frequent; usually to follow (for pursuit or search); by implication, to seek or ask; specifically to worship:–ask, at all, care for, diligently, inquire, make inquisition, (necro-)mancer, question, require, search, seek (for, out), surely.

    So we’re carefully looking, were be sensitive with what we see, what we hear, and what we feel.
    The two words diligently sought was given the same definition. (Darash) I think whatever we are doing with the Lord must be diligently sought. Or anything with the Kingdom must be diligently sought. When Pastor and Sis Watts go to seek the vision for the church they are diligently seeking. As a church we are diligently seeking by prayer, fasting, and reading the Word of God. Moses was diligently seeking a sin offering for the Lord. He seeking diligently because it was for the Kingdom. Anytime it’s kingdom related we must seek diligently. Outreach, ministering, etc. because we are and should continually be seeking to please God and give him glory!

  8. 1. And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the Lord, which he commanded them not.

    2. And there went out fire from the Lord, and devoured them, and they died before the Lord.

    God fights fire with Fire🔥
    When they offered God strange fire, He responded with His Fire, and the results are recorded for all time. No man-made substitute will ever replace what God has ordained.

    Hebrews 12:
    28. Therefore, let us all be thankful that we are a part of an unshakable Kingdom and offer to God worship that pleases Him and reflects the awe and reverence we have toward Him,

    29. for He is like a fierce fire that consumes everything. Voice

  9. 10 And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean;

    The two do not coincide, there is to be a distinction. Be holy and set apart as He has commanded!

  10. Leviticus 10:3 [Amp] Then Moses said to Aaron, This is what the Lord meant when He said, I [ And My will , not their own] will be acknowledged as hallowed by those who come near Me, and before all the people I will be honored. And Aaron said nothing. Disciple and Obedience and Prayer and we keep living for God. Bless Western Day.

  11. 1 And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the Lord, which he commanded them not.
    2 And there went out fire from the Lord, and devoured them, and they died before the Lord.

    Strange fire……i dint know if the person or others know but i do and GOD surely knows that my gifts will not bring the glory of GOD to manifest, ITS GOT TIO BE ALL JESUS!!! I don’t care how loud you scream or how high you jump!!! ITS GOT TO BE ALL JESUS, which is PRAYER, SACRIFICE AND ANOINTING (CRUSHING) !!! THERE IS NO OTHER WAY!!! It leads to spiritual deception and division , which leads to death when leaders in the Church allow this strange fire to come from the altar……. we must be vigilant and do everything possible that we arent the one bringing strange fire!!!

  12. 1 And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the Lord, which he commanded them not.
    2 And there went out fire from the Lord, and devoured them, and they died before the Lord.

    Not everyone in church is there for Jesus. It’s sad to think that we would have to guard ourselves spiritually from people inside the church but I’ve seen it at least half a dozen times people offering up strange fire. The Bible says that you will know them by their fruits and you can tell by their actions that it doesn’t exactly line up with the word of God and how they worship and how they talk. We must be watchful and guard the saints of God from those that send up strange fire.

  13. 1 And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the Lord, which he commanded them not.

    God is very specific ! You can not offer to Him something He did not ask for. God does not bargain!!!! Oh how I remember those days, if you only do this I will stop being mean, or I will stop smoking if you can show me that you are really there. How foolish can people be. He wants your all!!! He wants what is best for you. Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
    Thank you Jesus for always wanting what is best for me.

  14. Don’t be lazy

    Leviticus 10:1 KJV
    [1] And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the Lord , which he commanded them not.

    I don’t understand how this goes together but it’s on my heart sand mind
    💥 But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.
    Romans 11:4 –

    Zechariah 3:1-10 KJV
    [1] And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord , and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him. [2] And the Lord said unto Satan, The Lord rebuke thee, O Satan; even the Lord that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire? [3] Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and stood before the angel. [4] And he answered and spake unto those that stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And unto him he said, Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment. [5] And I said, Let them set a fair mitre upon his head. So they set a fair mitre upon his head, and clothed him with garments. And the angel of the Lord stood by. [6] And the angel of the Lord protested unto Joshua, saying, [7] Thus saith the Lord of hosts; If thou wilt walk in my ways, and if thou wilt keep my charge, then thou shalt also judge my house, and shalt also keep my courts, and I will give thee places to walk among these that stand by. [8] Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth my servant the BRANCH. [9] For behold the stone that I have laid before Joshua; upon one stone shall be seven eyes: behold, I will engrave the graving thereof, saith the Lord of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day. [10] In that day, saith the Lord of hosts, shall ye call every man his neighbour under the vine and under the fig tree.

  15. Verses 1-2 AMP “Now Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took their respective [ceremonial] censers, put fire in them, placed incense on it and offered [a]strange (unauthorized, unacceptable) fire before the Lord, [an act] which He had not commanded them to do. And fire came out from the presence of the Lord and devoured them, and they died before the Lord.” We must heed the warning and do not be bring something unauthorized or unacceptable before the Lord. If the Lord, did not direct you in doing something, then don’t or your gonna get burned. These guys found that out literally. As in verse 10 AMP says “and to make a distinction and recognize a difference between the holy (sacred) and the common (profane), and between the [ceremonially] unclean and the clean;”; we must make a distinct separation and set ourselves apart from anything that is unpleasing to the Lord.

  16. Then Aaron answered Moses, “Today my sons presented both their sin offering and their burnt offering to the Lord . And yet this tragedy has happened to me. If I had eaten the people’s sin offering on such a tragic day as this, would the Lord have been pleased?” And when Moses heard this, he was satisfied.
    Leviticus 10:19‭-‬20 NLT
    https://bible.com/bible/116/lev.10.19-20.NLT

    We have to check our hearts when we are serving. Aaron did not fill capable to perform his priestly duties at full capacity because he was so broken inside. We must check ourselves and prayer daily, trust in the ways of God because He understand so much more than we do, but we need to make sure we are in the right spirit to minister/serve those around us the way they need. Preparing ourselves in prayer doesn’t always just mean repentance. It means removing the roots of bitterness jealousy or hate, allowing God to reveal to us poison that may be in our spirit that is holding us back and could end up hurting somebody else if it’s not taken care of. If we allow wounds to not be addressed and healed properly we become walking bombs that can go off and hurt those around us….

  17. 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:

    10 And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean;

    Before, when someone would die, they would mourn the deceased for days. Renting there clothes, getting drunk. It was a ordeal.

    But God said, “It matters how you mourn”

    It really does matter how we Christians suffer. Just because tragedy comes does not give us the excuse to be heathens when it does.

    The world is constantly looking and waiting to accuse us, we need to be Christian even in our suffering. God told Aaron, there IS a difference between the holy and unholy and the clean and unclean.

    If it matters to God, it should matter to us!

  18. 10 And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean;

    2 Cor 6:17  Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,

    The New Testament restates what God expects as he commanded in the Old Testament. The priest were to be separated from what is unclean and as each of us are priest in this day we are to also be separate.

  19. 1 And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the Lord, which he commanded them not.

    2 And there went out fire from the Lord, and devoured them, and they died before the Lord.

    There is a huge difference between the fire kindled by God and fire made by man.

    The fire in the altar of burnt offering was sacred because it was kindled by God Himself. Nadab and Abihu offered a fire of their own making.

    They were the sons of Aaron, so I’m sure they thought they were safe. But you cannot substitute your parents relationship with God for yours, just as you cannot substitute what God has put together with that which is man made.

    The same fire that brought the people to their knees is the fire that brought judgment. God had to be particular with those considered to be in the priesthood. An unholy priesthood could mean an unholy nation.

    We must be carful that we are not the ones offering strange fire and creating a stumbling block for a move of God. We must be pure in our motives and holy in our lifestyle.

    10 And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean;

  20. 1 And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the Lord, which he commanded them not.

    2 And there went out fire from the Lord, and devoured them, and they died before the Lord.

    3 Then Moses said unto Aaron, This is it that the Lord spake, saying, I will be sanctified in them that come nigh me, and before all the people I will be glorified. And Aaron held his peace.

    We should follow God’s commandments exactly how he has laid them out… Without any substitutions or completely as he has required us to do!

  21. 1 And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before the Lord, which he commanded them not.

    2 And there went out fire from the Lord, and devoured them, and they died before the Lord.

    As I have lived for God in the last 29 or 30 years, I have learned that when we bring things to the altar and lay them before the Lord, we have to be knowledgeable of the word and his commandments. We need not to lay strange things unto the Lord knowing he will reject it. If we seek first the kingdom and all his righteousness , we will know what is acceptable and what is not. I can say without a doubt if i know it’s wrong then I can not pass it off to God as an acceptable offering. Just like the sons of Aaron offering strange fire. They were slain by God.

    We are in a time that we can not afford to play games
    With God if we want to make heaven. That goes for reaching the lost, we can not give them watered down theology and doctrine or we will be dealt with by God. Know the word of God and be wise in what we give unto this world and unto God.

  22. And Moses diligently sought the goat of the sin offering, and, behold, it was burnt: and he was angry with Eleazar and Ithamar, the sons of Aaron which were left alive, saying, Wherefore have ye not eaten the sin offering in the holy place, seeing it is most holy, and God hath given it you to bear the iniquity of the congregation, to make atonement for them before the Lord ? Behold, the blood of it was not brought in within the holy place: ye should indeed have eaten it in the holy place, as I commanded. And Aaron said unto Moses, Behold, this day have they offered their sin offering and their burnt offering before the Lord ; and such things have befallen me: and if I had eaten the sin offering to day, should it have been accepted in the sight of the Lord ? And when Moses heard that, he was content.
    Leviticus 10:16‭-‬20 KJV
    https://bible.com/bible/1/lev.10.16-20.KJV

    God gave the command through Moses for them to eat it, to Saron his sacrifice would not have been accepted, because he was full of greif, and anger, probably disappointment. He knew his sons wrong, but as their parent it was hard to accept the fact that they did it, and that God punished them by burning them alive! we cant come any ole way to God when we bring our offering, when we give our incence it needs to be on point, it should be a sweet smelling scent to God, We should never come at him with strange, unacceptable fire, he knows what is pleasing to him! He knows the condition of our heart when we come to him! He knows our issues of life, so coming to him without all the mess, and giving him ALL THE HONOR, TOTAL PRAISE. Thank you Jesus from where you brought me from and where you are taking My Hubbie and I.

  23. And Nadanh and Abidu the sons of Aaron, took either of them his censer and put fire Therein and put incense there on and offered strange fire before the Lord, which he commanded them not.

  24. The Hebrew translation of “strange” means “unauthorized, foreign, or profane.” God not only rejected their sacrifice; He found it so offensive that He consumed the two men with fire. God knows our hearts. He knows what we truly believe and our attitude about sacrifices. We cannot offer sacrifices that are unworthy of Him. They need to pure. He seeks people who come to Him in humility, ready to sacrifice their pride and be humble.

  25. Then Moses said unto Aaron, This is it that the Lord spake, saying, I will be sanctified in them that come nigh me, and before all the people I will be glorified. And Aaron held his peace.

    4 And Moses called Mishael and Elzaphan, the sons of Uzziel the uncle of Aaron, and said unto them, Come near, carry your brethren from before the sanctuary out of the camp.

    5 So they went near, and carried them in their coats out of the camp; as Moses had said.

    6 And Moses said unto Aaron, and unto Eleazar and unto Ithamar, his sons, Uncover not your heads, neither rend your clothes; lest ye die, and lest wrath come upon all the people: but let your brethren, the whole house of Israel, bewail the burning which the Lord hath kindled.

  26. I expect God to do amazing things this weekend , thank you Jesus for your mercy and goodness

    I want to stay humble and meek , I also want to continue showing Love everywhere

    Then Moses said to Aaron, “This is what the Lord meant when he said, ‘I will display my holiness through those who come near me. I will display my glory before all the people.’” And Aaron was silent.
    Leviticus 10:3 NLT

  27. 8 And the Lord spake unto Aaron, saying,

    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:

    10 And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean;

    Drinking wine and strong drink in the Lord’s presence was considered unholy and perhaps we can conclude that after consuming this alcohol, we are considered being drunk, and are unclean. I am not trying to meddle in people’s business, but why drink at all knowing God’s instructions here for the priesthood? Aren’t we New Testament believers considered a royal priesthood, a peculiar people? 1 Peter 2:9 “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:”

  28. 10 And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean;

    There’s always a difference. We are called and chosen to be set apart and unlike the unclean and unholy carnal world.

    We choose to not listen to certain music that can dirty our minds, we choose not to watch certain films or entertainment that will fill our minds with junk. and we choose to not partake or associate ourselves with activities and events that will dirty our testimony.

    1 Peter 2:9 “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:”

    With every action, attitude and thought we should ensure we are choosing to be clean and holy!

  29. Leviticus 10:
    This is another stain in the extensive and sordid history of sin and the intentions of the human being. It is the historical record of the rebellion and disobedience of the 2 sons of Aaron. Follow the majestic day of dedication narrated in the previous chapter.
    We see that this happens quite frequently. After the thrill of victory, failure appears, just as in Joshua’s book the victory of the fall of the city of Jericho was followed by the vile defeat in the city of Ai.
    The pride of Nadab and Abiú is reckless in light of the clear teachings God gave on Mount Sinai. Exodus 19:22 says: May priests who approach the Lord be sanctified, lest the Lord break into them. Also in Exodus 30: 34-38 God gave Moses the formula for the incense that should be used in the gathering tent and said: And the incense that you will do, you will not do in the same proportions for your own use; It will be holy to the Lord. Anyone who makes incense like this, to use it as a perfume will be cut from among his people.
    The holy character of God was established by this incident, at the beginning of the age of the Law. And the same holy character of God would be evidenced at the beginning of the time of God’s grace, in the New Testament

  30. Leviticus 10:8-10
    8) And the LORD spake unto Aaron, saying,
    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:
    10) And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean.

    The Lord required that Aaron and his sons stay sober (clear-headed), so that they could perform their duties and have good judgment, and so that they could distinguish between holy and unholy things and clean and unclean things.

  31. Levítico 10.
    *EL PECADO DE NADAB Y ABIU LA DESOBEDIENCIA Ser sacerdote de Dios implicaba una especial responsabilidad. Ser revestido de las ropas sacerdotales y poder presentarse ante Dios en el Tabernáculo no era cualquier cosa, igual que hoy , nosotros no lestar revestidos de la justicia de Cristo para poder presentarnos ante Dios como si no tuviésemos mancha. “Mas vosotros sois linaje escogido, real sacerdocio, nación santa, pueblo adquirido; para que anunciéis las virtudes de Aquel que os llamó de las tinieblas a su luz admirable” (1 Pedro 2:9): lo que el apóstol Pedro nos dice es que fuimos elegidos y adquiridos por Dios para “anunciar sus virtudes” OBEDECIÉNDOLE.

    Pronto empezaban, sin embargo, Nadab y Abiú a desobedecer a Dios. Se tomaron la libertad de entrar en el Tabernáculo cuando ellos lo decidieron , no cuando les había prescrito Dios, y ofreciendo “fuego extraño” en los incensarios, fuego que Dios “nunca les mandó”. Según Éxodo 30:9, una norma que había que cumplir en el altar para quemar el incienso era que “No ofreceréis sobre él incienso ex­traño”. Y en Levítico 16:12 se dice: “Después tomará un incensario lleno de brasas de fuego del altar de delante de Jehová”. No sabemos de dónde obtuvieron su fuego Nadab y Abiú, pero es claro que desobedecieron a Dios. Su pecado fue la presunción y la soberbia. ¿Cuántos “cristianos” nos dicen hoy día “yo creo en Dios a mi manera”? ¿O con cuántas personas nos encontramos día a día que nos dicen “yo voy a ir al Cielo porque soy muy bueno y creo en Dios”?

    *El pecado de Nadab y Abiú fue el mismo que quienes pretenden tener una religión a su medida, una religión en que los hombres mis­mos deciden qué clase de culto o servicio rinden al Señor. Obedeciendo su voluntad y no la del Reino de Dios .

  32. 8 And the Lord spake unto Aaron, saying,

    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:

    10 And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean;

    11 And that ye may teach the children of Israel all the statutes which the Lord hath spoken unto them by the hand of Moses.

  33. 19 Then Aaron answered Moses, “Today my sons presented both their sin offering and their burnt offering to the LORD. And yet this tragedy has happened to me. If I had eaten the people’s sin offering on such a tragic day as this, would the LORD have been pleased?” 20 And when Moses heard this, he was satisfied.

    There are always consequences for disobeying rules or laws. Some consequences are small others are greater. In these case, Aaron had justification for not eating the sin offering. He ask himself, would God be pleased? In this case, Moses agreed with Aaron, and more than likely God also, since his other sons lived. Always be ready to justify any broken law you may have committed, whether right or wrong.

  34. 17 Wherefore have ye not eaten the sin offering in the holy place, seeing it is most holy, and God hath given it you to bear the iniquity of the congregation, to make atonement for them before the Lord?

    18 Behold, the blood of it was not brought in within the holy place: ye should indeed have eaten it in the holy place, as I commanded.

    19 And Aaron said unto Moses, Behold, this day have they offered their sin offering and their burnt offering before the Lord; and such things have befallen me: and if I had eaten the sin offering to day, should it have been accepted in the sight of the Lord?

    20 And when Moses heard that, he was content.

  35. 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:
    10 And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean;

    I have had someone ask me before “Where does it say in the Bible that you can’t drink wine? “ and I had to reply that I didn’t know. This scripture is it and lays it out. You can’t be used in the church and of God if you are divulging in wine.

    16 And Moses diligently sought the goat of the sin offering, and, behold, it was burnt: and he was angry with Eleazar and Ithamar, the sons of Aaron which were left alive, saying,
    17 Wherefore have ye not eaten the sin offering in the holy place, seeing it is most holy, and God hath given it you to bear the iniquity of the congregation, to make atonement for them before the Lord?
    18 Behold, the blood of it was not brought in within the holy place: ye should indeed have eaten it in the holy place, as I commanded.

    Be sure to listen to the voice of our Pastor. He gets his instruction from God. God gives instruction and direction to him, for Pastor to give to us. When we don’t follow that instruction or direction, Pastor will get upset. But only because he loves us so much and knows the consequences. Heed to his instruction.

  36. 18 Behold, the blood of it was not brought in within the holy place: ye should indeed have eaten it in the holy place, as I commanded.
    19 And Aaron said unto Moses, Behold, this day have they offered their sin offering and their burnt offering before the Lord; and such things have befallen me: and if I had eaten the sin offering to day, should it have been accepted in the sight of the Lord?
    20 And when Moses heard that, he was content.

  37. 2 And there went out fire from the Lord, and devoured them, and they died before the Lord.

    What are we sending out to the Lord. What type of worship are we giving Him. We must bring unto Him a sweet aroma of praise and worship!!! In your praise you might food men by not Jesus!!

  38. 10 And that ye may put difference between holy and unholy, and between unclean and clean;

    There is a difference in how you treat the things of Lord and the Lord himself. He will not accept strange fire. There is a way that He asks things to be done. And he calls us to come out from among them and be separate. To live a life of consecration we must be willing to set ourselves apart from the things of this world and learn His ways.

  39. To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity; To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion. A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:
    Proverbs 1:3‭-‬5 KJV

    AMEN!!!
