Leviticus 16

And the Lord spake unto Moses after the death of the two sons of Aaron, when they offered before the Lord, and died;

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.

Thus shall Aaron come into the holy place: with a young bullock for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering.

He shall put on the holy linen coat, and he shall have the linen breeches upon his flesh, and shall be girded with a linen girdle, and with the linen mitre shall he be attired: these are holy garments; therefore shall he wash his flesh in water, and so put them on.

And he shall take of the congregation of the children of Israel two kids of the goats for a sin offering, and one ram for a burnt offering.

And Aaron shall offer his bullock of the sin offering, which is for himself, and make an atonement for himself, and for his house.

And he shall take the two goats, and present them before the Lordat the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; one lot for the Lord, and the other lot for the scapegoat.

And Aaron shall bring the goat upon which the Lord‘s lot fell, and offer him for a sin offering.

10 But the goat, on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat, shall be presented alive before the Lord, to make an atonement with him, and to let him go for a scapegoat into the wilderness.

11 And Aaron shall bring the bullock of the sin offering, which is for himself, and shall make an atonement for himself, and for his house, and shall kill the bullock of the sin offering which is for himself:

12 And he shall take a censer full of burning coals of fire from off the altar before the Lord, and his hands full of sweet incense beaten small, and bring it within the vail:

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:

14 And he shall take of the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it with his finger upon the mercy seat eastward; and before the mercy seat shall he sprinkle of the blood with his finger seven times.

15 Then shall he kill the goat of the sin offering, that is for the people, and bring his blood within the vail, and do with that blood as he did with the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it upon the mercy seat, and before the mercy seat:

16 And he shall make an atonement for the holy place, because of the uncleanness of the children of Israel, and because of their transgressions in all their sins: and so shall he do for the tabernacle of the congregation, that remaineth among them in the midst of their uncleanness.

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.

18 And he shall go out unto the altar that is before the Lord, and make an atonement for it; and shall take of the blood of the bullock, and of the blood of the goat, and put it upon the horns of the altar round about.

19 And he shall sprinkle of the blood upon it with his finger seven times, and cleanse it, and hallow it from the uncleanness of the children of Israel.

20 And when he hath made an end of reconciling the holy place, and the tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar, he shall bring the live goat:

21 And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness:

22 And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land not inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness.

23 And Aaron shall come into the tabernacle of the congregation, and shall put off the linen garments, which he put on when he went into the holy place, and shall leave them there:

24 And he shall wash his flesh with water in the holy place, and put on his garments, and come forth, and offer his burnt offering, and the burnt offering of the people, and make an atonement for himself, and for the people.

25 And the fat of the sin offering shall he burn upon the altar.

26 And he that let go the goat for the scapegoat shall wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in water, and afterward come into the camp.

27 And the bullock for the sin offering, and the goat for the sin offering, whose blood was brought in to make atonement in the holy place, shall one carry forth without the camp; and they shall burn in the fire their skins, and their flesh, and their dung.

28 And he that burneth them shall wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in water, and afterward he shall come into the camp.

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.

32 And 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.

  1. 1 And the Lord spake unto Moses after the death of the two sons of Aaron, when they offered before the Lord, and died;

    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.

    Listen to the voice of the Lord first and obey his word second. That Will help us and save us a a lot of headaches.

  2. 7 And he shall take the two goats, and present them before the Lordat the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

    8 And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; one lot for the Lord, and the other lot for the scapegoat.

    9 And Aaron shall bring the goat upon which the Lord‘s lot fell, and offer him for a sin offering.

    10 But the goat, on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat, shall be presented alive before the Lord, to make an atonement with him, and to let him go for a scapegoat into the wilderness.

    He must then cast lots upon the two goats, which were to make (both together) one sin-offering for the congregation. One of these goats must be slain, in token of a satisfaction to be made to God’s justice for sin, the other must be sent away, in token of the remission or dismission of sin by the mercy of God. Both must be presented together to God (Leviticus 16:7) before the lot was cast upon them, and afterwards the scape-goat by itself, Leviticus 16:10. Some think that goats were chosen for the sin-offering because, by the disagreeableness of their smell, the offensiveness of sin is represented: others think, because it was said that the demons which the heathens then worshipped often appeared to their worshippers in the form of goats, God therefore obliged his people to sacrifice goats, that they might never be tempted to sacrifice to goats.

    There many times we have taken the term scape goat literally by blaming others for the sin that we have committed. There is times when we have made ourselves believe we were innocent when others were at fault, all the while we were truly guilty. We used others as a scapegoat. Reading and understanding the word of God allows us to be wise in knowledge and knowing how to participate in the actions that allow us to ask for forgiveness of our sins through true repentance. Thank God we are no longer under the law but under the grace of God.

  3. “Then shall he kill the goat of the sin offering, that is for the people, and bring his blood within the veil, and do with that blood as he did with the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it upon the mercy seat, and before the mercy seat:”
    ‭‭Leviticus‬ ‭16:15‬ ‭KJV‬‬
    https://www.bible.com/1/lev.16.15.kjv

    When we bring our sacrifice it must be at the mercy seat of God. It obviously wasn’t as easy for them then as it is for us today. We should thank Jesus for some of the last words he spoke “it is finished, it is done.” And the veil of the temple was rent. His blood and sacrifice is the only reason we have all have access to his mercy seat. The sacrifice wasn’t taken lightly, even after the fact of the sacrifice. I don’t think when they brought this sacrifice they didn’t know what they were doing. Their garments were holy, I’m thinking they probably wasn’t even that messy about the whole thing. They followed the steps of the tabernacle and at that mercy seat they brought forth that living sacrifice. Why do we really have to offer Jesus today, considering we can just tap right up to the mercy seat. I don’t say that lightly, but what do we really have to offer Jesus. I believe Jesus is just looking for a willing vessel today to share the gospel to impact someone’s life. We need to take this word and guide others out of the darkness.

    Matthew 18:21-22

    Daniel 9:26 –

    One of the servants of the high priest, being his kinsman whose ear Peter cut off, saith, Did not I see thee in the garden with him? Peter then denied again: and immediately the cock crew. Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might eat the passover. Pilate then went out unto them, and said, What accusation bring ye against this man? They answered and said unto him, If he were not a malefactor, we would not have delivered him up unto thee.
    John 18:26-30

  5. 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.

    Grateful for His mercy and grace that gives us opportunity to be forgiven and renewed. Even more grateful for the blood of Jesus that took the place of these earthly sacrifices. He paid the ultimate sacrifice for our sins – Thank You Jesus!

  6. 21. And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness:

    22. And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land not inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness.

    The goat ‘took their sins’ into the wilderness, never to be seen again, as if they had been thrown into the sea.

    11. For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.

    12. As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

  7. And when he hath made an end of reconciling the holy place, and the tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar, he shall bring the live goat: And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness: And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land not inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness.

    The scape Goat bore all the iniquity of the children, and he was dirty after Aaron was finished, and the person that took it out the Camp and let it loose, had to cleanse himself.

    (in the Bible) a goat sent into the wilderness after the Jewish chief priest had symbolically laid the sins of the people upon it (Lev. 16).

    I’ve been the scape goat for others its not fun, knowing you havent done anything, but somehow was the one who got the blame! That was the hardest thing ever.But this Goat is bearing all the sin of the congregation. They did this once a year. We have one who neared our sin. But he wasn’t no goat, the Lamb of God. Thank you Jesus it’s because of you we no longer have to do these acts.

  8. While we are able……..
    Religion is not a scapegoat in place of relationship with Jesus.
    How many times have we use the scapegoat?
    I remember growing up as a kid people would ask me why ask me (why do I wear skirts) as a child “I would say because it’s my religion”
    Fast forward to today; how many times being lazy have I used a scapegoat, instead of building a strong relationship and having a thorough understanding, why I feel the way I do, or why things are going the way they’re going.

    Every year they had to atone for their sins through sacrifice. A sin offering and a burnt offering. This was the law of God; after Jesus died for us that changed. Now we sacrifice by giving of our time, talent, and anything that God puts before us for that sacrifice. I know that there is more that I could be doing to sacrifice for the Kingdom. All I have to do is confess everything to God and never turn back to it, but there is only one way to atone for sin today. Be baptized in Jesus name and be filled with His Spirit. I’m so grateful for the grace and mercy of God. Thank you Jesus for fulfilling the law and giving yourself for my sin.

  10. 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.
    3 Thus shall Aaron come into the holy place: with a young bullock for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering.

    I truly appreciate the atonement that Christ gave us when he died on Calvary but what of the things that we could learn from the law is the strong adherence to the holiest of holies. Sacrifices may not be the current method for covering sin but God still places emphasis on his rest place and his word. We must continually learn to adhere and honor with the utmost respect to the things that God has placed over us.p

  11. The Lord said to Moses, “Warn your brother, Aaron, not to enter the Most Holy Place behind the inner curtain whenever he chooses; if he does, he will die. For the Ark’s cover—the place of atonement—is there, and I myself am present in the cloud above the atonement cover.
    Leviticus 16:2 NLT
    https://bible.com/bible/116/lev.16.2.NLT

    Im thankful that my God still sits on the Mercy seat. My Jehovah, You are Glorious, Holy and Excellent. I praise Your name! I love You, Lord! I bless You!

  12. 8 And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; one lot for the Lord, and the other lot for the scapegoat.

    Matthew 27:35 And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.

    Acts 1:26 And they gave forth their lots; and the lot fell upon Matthias; and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.

    God can USE anything!! Aaron is told to use something as simple as a throw of “dice” to decide which one gets sacrificed and which one is the scape goat. Even at the crucifixion of Christ the soldier gamble His clothes away to fulfill the prophecy of the throwing lots over the sacrifice. Even in the new church of Acts they cast lots to choose who would replace Judah. God revealed His will through the throwing of lots. Those this means that gambling is ok??? Far from it!!!!! For God prefers for you to invest that in His Kingdom!!!! How about if you find a lottery ticket or you are given one?? (I was given one by my boss on my birthday once). Looking from the point of God showing His will through the casting of lots do you keep it? Or throw it away?? I don’t know the correct answer; but I will tell you what I did. My ticket was a small winner just $25 so I just gave the whole thing to CHRIST and if it would of been a big winner I still would of given it to Christ!! For it was the lots that God gave into my life. I do not WASTE one cent in gambling and will NEVER waste my time and effort when I can be doing so many other things but when is given to me I say if it wins it belongs to HIS KINGDOM!!! Many use this passages of the Bible to condone gambling THEY ARE WRONG!!!! That is not the reason for it is not correct to waste the blessings that He has bestowed on you!!!

  13. iLove the Kingdom
    So you wanna be the scapegoat huh?
    Everybody in life it seems wants to be the scapegoat…No, wait a minute, that’s not right…the word scapegoat (in the dictionary) means the following:

    Scapegoat- a person who is blamed for the wrongdoings, mistakes, or faults of others, especially for reasons of expediency.

    In today’s society it appears the word scapegoat is a negative word in which all blame is placed on someone regardless if its true or not. Let’s look at the scapegoat in the bible however. This lil feller got to live. You think the goat cared all blame was placed on him…nope, he was free to live another day.

    We must not worry about folk putting blame on us…we are free yall!

  14. 16:30 For on that day, the Priest shall make an atonement for you to cleanse you, that you may be clean from all your sin before the Lord.
    ———
    Well, not anymore.🙌are not we happy that we do t have to carry the sin, the plague anymore until?
    The moment we feel that crust on our skin ( sin) we should right away go to the Altar and repent. Make it right and go back to the word walking in obedience and doing what pleases the Lord.
    Thank you Lord for your mercy and compassion towards me
    And for sure, thank you Lord for your patience ☺️.
    I seek the Lord
    I pray
    I fall in love with the word

  15. 31 It shall be a sabbath of rest unto you, and ye shall afflict your souls, by a statute for ever.

    32 And 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.

    We must follow the Lord’s instructions step by step if we anticipate the blessings to flow down! Thank you Lord for the shedding of your blood app that I could have everlasting life!

  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.

    Aaron’s two sons just died for their rebellion. Strange fire is nothing to play with and their actions have their consequences. As their father, Aaron, is responsible to teaching his children the order in which serving is to be set in order. He was aware and in part is why God doesn’t want Aaron displaying his grief in mourning in front of the people. He is ultimately an example of what serving God as a priest entails. Their responsibility is great for they must be in line with God to serve the people.

  17. Leviticus 16

    Scapegoat

    1.
    a person who is blamed for the wrongdoings, mistakes, or faults of others, especially for reasons of expediency.

    Expediency is as important an emotional motivation as Need is a motivator of reason. Since Expediency is based on avoiding future punishments or disappointments that may or may not be real, dramatic tension can be easily created between the subjective and objective views.

    Many times we do not want to own up to a mistake …..why ? People experience shame. Fear , anxiety when they admit they made a mistake. The scapegoat took the sins and went into the wilderness alone to roam . Thankfully we can now come before God and admit to Him our sins He became the greatest sacrifice. No more scapegoat….
    There is an assessment taken in Anger Management Classes that has an individual deal with where the root of problems hurts habits have actually grown from. We can live our life still bound by traditional words scapegoats and live expecting to be the one to take all the blame or we can rise above and realize that it’s not always “my fault” . Dealing with this world and their hurts is what Jesus Christ came to do . He took all the blame shame guilt when He became the sacrifice. Where we fail as Christians we still hold on to past grudges and the accusations. So you take the blame feel guilty when it was not even yours to have guilt. Scapegoat. Black Sheep whatever we want to call it. If we the body of Christ would reach for those who are wounded battered and lost we would not have the mentality that I’m the one to always blame. The assessment in Anger Management allows us to take a deeper look at why we feel the emotions of failures and how we react to certain situations. This world is filled with sin the church must rise up and reach them . Again as Spirit filled individuals can we not daily take that assessment in the presence of God. I’ve learned a lot of lessons and still learning that only God truly knows the heart of an individual. Hurts habits hang ups as Life Focus talks about weekly in our Saturday classes . I’m so thankful that God took all of it and because of His great sacrifice He hung them on a tree. We can shove things under the rug and think they are no longer there but the rug becomes bumpy and soon family members are tripping and falling. Blaming one another making someone the scapegoat…..when in reality we each had a part in creating the obstacles. Thank God for seasons of prayer and forgiveness and communications. One of the greatest things in these chapters is the picture of forgiveness through sacrificing. No longer a Scapegoat but The Spotless Lamb made the difference. Thank You Jesus Christ for what You have done and what You still do.

    No one can carry another sins we must bring them to the door of the cross …..

    (in the Bible) a goat sent into the wilderness after the Jewish chief priest had symbolically laid the sins of the people upon it (Lev. 16).

  18. 1 And the Lord spake unto Moses after the death of the two sons of Aaron, when they offered before the Lord, and died;

    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.

    3 Thus shall Aaron come into the holy place: with a young bullock for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering.

    First Aaron had to make atonement for his sins and his household, then for the sins of the congregation, so he could enter into the most holy place and serve God. We too must be repented of all our sins and be right with God before we can help/lead someone else out of sin to the Lord. Thank God we come daily to Him and not yearly to be cleansed from all our sin. I read where an old time man of God repented 45 minutes every day! Then he was used mightily by God in healings and miracles and preaching the word everywhere he went. I believe repenting is also dying to our own carnal nature to prevent sin, not just the wrong we may have done.

  19. 1 And the Lord spake unto Moses after the death of the two sons of Aaron, when they offered before the Lord, and died;

    As leaders, we are watched, examined, and followed. Our attitudes are seen, our remarkers are remembered, and our actions are repeated. Vs 1 talks about the actions of the sons, and that’s how they are remembered.

    How are we going to be remembered? As we go through life, constantly making choices every second, I pray we keep in mind, our actions will always speak louder than our words. That we will act in ways we want to be repeated for His Glory not repented for our sake.

  20. 12 And he shall take a censer full of burning coals of fire from off the altar before the Lord, and his hands full of sweet incense beaten small, and bring it within the vail:

    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:

    This was a sign to the people that his sacrifice was accepted and he was still alive, and there would be no need from them to drag him out from inside the holy place, which would be necessary had his sacrifice not been accepted, he would have died.

    I believe the principle here is that the people saw the cloud of incense, the aftermath or after effect of his sacrifice being accepted by the Lord. When we spend time in the presence of our King, there should be a residue of His presence that goes with us each day. It should be something that people recognize about us, that would attract them to His presence as well. If there is no residue (evidence) that I have been with Jesus, maybe I need to stay in His presence longer.

  21. Leviticus 16

    1 And the Lord spake unto Moses after the death of the two sons of Aaron, when they offered before the Lord, and died;

    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.

    3 Thus shall Aaron come into the holy place: with a young bullock for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering.

  22. 2. 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.

    What a privilege we have, to be in the presence of the Lord whenever we want. We can wait until scheduled times in the sanctuary, but we can also call on the name of the Lord in our vehicle on the way to the grocery store. Maybe we have traffic signals between our home and the grocery store. We could spend that time communing with the Lord. While we are walking down the isles and filling our buggies we could be praising and worshiping for His blessings that allow us to purchase the things we need.

    However, I fail to recognize these opportunities. When I am sitting at a traffic signal, I am counting the waste of my time or spend those moments zoning out, listening to the news or talk shows or staring at the vehicles around us? Why can’t I recognize the simple things in life? All those moments of time that I will never get back. Those moments could be spent in His presence.

  23. FIRST THE KINGDOM
    PREPARATION IMPORTANCE

    1 And the Lord spake unto Moses after the death of the two sons of Aaron, when they offered before the Lord, and died;
    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.
    3 Thus shall Aaron come into the holy place: with a young bullock for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering.
    4 He shall put on the holy linen coat, and he shall have the linen breeches upon his flesh, and shall be girded with a linen girdle, and with the linen mitre shall he be attired: these are holy garments; therefore shall he wash his flesh in water, and so put them on.

    JESUS lays out the details in this passage of HIS expectation of PREPARATION of man before going in to the “Holy Place”. Referring to Nadab and Abihu and their death from offering strange fire upon the altar; this reveals to us the importance of consecration to GOD and pure WORSHIP. JESUS also refers to an offering of sacrifice to be present. Finally JESUS refers to the apparel or clothing required as well as the cleanliness of an approach to the ALTAR.

    Understanding that we are Blessed with a New Covenant to with GOD. Understanding that this covenant has to do with the atonement of sin through the sacrifice of Blood. We rejoice at the Blood of JESUS the spotless lamb, slain from the foundation of the world.

    BUT

    We have a New Covenant through Christ JESUS and now while we still respect the Law of GOD and make preparation to approach HIS “Holy Place” we have clearer instructions.

    Hebrews 4:14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
    15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
    16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

    Because we have PREPARED our hearts we can come BOLDLY. We can only come BOLDLY when we approach with an understanding of the PREPARATION IMPORTANCE.

    We approach or come BOLDLY because we know the JESUS is with us. We have put on the garment of PRAISE and our loins are girdled with TRUTH.

    Lets bring everything to GOD in Prayer and from a PREPARED place.

  24. Leviticus 16:7-9, 15, & 21-22
    7) And he shall take the two goats, and present them before the LORD at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
    8) And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; one lot for the LORD, and the other lot for the scapegoat.
    9) And Aaron shall bring the goat upon which the LORD’s lot fell, and offer him for a sin offering.
    15) Then shall he kill the goat of the sin offering, that is for the people,….

    21) And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness.
    22) And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land not inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness.

    These two goats are a type of Christ.
    The goat that the LORD’s lot fell upon became a sin offering, a sacrifice. JESUS became the sacrifice for our sins. 1 Peter 2:24 says, “Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree…” and Hebrews 10:26 says, “… but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.”
    The goat, who became the scapegoat, had all the iniquities of the children of Israel and all their transgressions in all their sins, put upon his head. He bore upon him all their iniquities. Isaiah 53:6 says, “… and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.”

    Thank You JESUS!!

  25. Leviticus 16 and the Day of Atonement

    Leviticus 16 describes the rituals that the high priest should perform on the Day of Atonement once a year.

    But how do these rituals relate to the Day of Atonement?
    Leviticus 16 and the Day of Atonement
    Leviticus 16 speaks of ceremonies in which two goats are involved on the Day of Atonement. What do these two goats represent?

    Aaron, as high priest, entered the tabernacle sanctuary once a year – only on the Day of Atonement.

  26. 3 Thus shall Aaron come into the holy place: with a young bullock for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering.

    4 He shall put on the holy linen coat, and he shall have the linen breeches upon his flesh, and shall be girded with a linen girdle, and with the linen mitre shall he be attired: these are holy garments; therefore shall he wash his flesh in water, and so put them on.

    5 And he shall take of the congregation of the children of Israel two kids of the goats for a sin offering, and one ram for a burnt offering.

    Before Aaron could go into the presence of God, he had to do three things.

    First; he had to bring a sacrifice. Whether it be praise, time, talent, treasure or all of the above, we should always bring a sacrifice to the King of Kings.

    Second; he had to wash himself. As pastor has stated many times: take a shower, use deodorant, wash your clothes and brush your teeth!

    Third; he had to dress in holy garments. Though I know new converts and guest do not yet know this and should never be judged for how they come into the house of God, those of us that do know and understand, should always come into the presence of God in our most “holy garments” dressed in our very best.

  27. 32 And 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:

    Thank you Jesus for our Pastor. We must uphold him with our prayers. We must support him and his family as best as we can.

    Seek ye first the Kingdom of God

  28. Then Aaron shall present the bull as the sin offering for himself, and make atonement for himself and for his house.
    LEVITICUS 16:6 AMP

    It is so important to make sure we are right with God before we intervene for someone else. It gives a whole new perspective of “Sweep around your own front door before you sweep around mine”. That saying isn’t out of spite but a warning for caution. Please make sure you are okay before you come and help me because I need you and you need me, we are ALL a part of God’s body!!

  29. “The Lord spoke to Moses after the death of Aaron’s two sons, who died after they entered the Lord’s presence and burned the wrong kind of fire before him. The Lord said to Moses, “Warn your brother, Aaron, not to enter the Most Holy Place behind the inner curtain whenever he chooses; if he does, he will die. For the Ark’s cover—the place of atonement—is there, and I myself am present in the cloud above the atonement cover.”
    ‭‭Leviticus‬ ‭16:1-2‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Aaron could not come into the Holy Place any time he pleased, but only at God’s invitation and at the appointed time and place.

  30. 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.

    The Lords commandment to Moses was not just for a moment. The same is true for us when the Lord commands us to do something we are to teach others and to walk in His was as well. We are to lead them through the Word that they may learn and live for Him.

  31. 1 And the Lord spake unto Moses after the death of the two sons of Aaron, when they offered before the Lord, and died;

    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.

    3 Thus shall Aaron come into the holy place: with a young bullock for a sin offering, and a ram for a burnt offering.

    Anytime that we look to Jesus it should be with all of your heart, no matter if it’s just you looking up and thanking God. He is faithful and we should always take our time with God serious and make sure you spend that time with just God. We can’t expect to go to God everytime with just half of our heart and be happy that way. You have to give God your all, because he does the same for us.

  32. Levitico 16
    * “Habló Jehová a Moisés después de la muerte de los dos hijos de Aarón: Nadab y Abiú fueron heridos por el Señor debido a que llegaron al Lugar Santo y ofrecieron fuego extraño delante del Señor”

    * “Di a Aarón tu hermano, que no en todo tiempo entre en el santuario detrás del velo” : Por lo tanto, Aarón no podía llegar al Lugar Santo en cualquier momento que deseara, sino solamente al ser invitado por parte de Dios y en el momento y lugar señalados.

    * Lo mismo es cierto hoy en día: Podemos venir solamente ante el Lugar Santo de Dios por medio de Su invitación. Y la bienaventuranza es que el acceso ha sido abierto de par en par debido a la obra de Jesús en la cruz por nosotros, debido a la obra de Jesús a nuestro favor, tenemos libre acceso ante Dios.

  33. 8 And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; one lot for the Lord, and the other lot for the scapegoat.

    9 And Aaron shall bring the goat upon which the Lord’s lot fell, and offer him for a sin offering.

    10 But the goat, on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat, shall be presented alive before the Lord, to make an atonement with him, and to let him go for a scapegoat into the wilderness.

  34. 32 And 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.

    a·tone·ment
    /əˈtōnmənt
    1 reparation for a wrong or injury.”she wanted to make atonement for her husband’s behavior”
    ◦ (in religious contexts) reparation or expiation for sin.

    In all things, Pastor has to give an atonement, a reasoning, or answer to our actions. Acting a certain way does not only affect you and those around you but also your own Pastor. So, if certain things don’t another you and it doesn’t matter to you that your actions affect you, then you might think about what your actions do to your Pastor. Think about the extra leg work and action he has to take due to your choices.

  35. God gives Moses instructions to give to his bro Aaron . Aaron Knows God is serious and he can’t risk his life And not follow directions. He’s warned to carry out what God says to do. There’s consequences when we don’t follow instruction.

  36. 14 And he shall take of the blood of the bullock, and sprinkle it with his finger upon the mercy seat eastward; and before the mercy seat shall he sprinkle of the blood with his finger seven times.

    This is like what we read before , with the sprinkling of blood and the killing of the young bull, and the killing of the goats.
    -Bella

    26 And he that let go the goat for the scapegoat shall wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in water, and afterward come into the camp.

    Even the man who took the goat outside the camp was unclean, because of sin. With that thought in mind, how do we get off believing that we can bring our bad attitudes and our sins into church?
    The Word tells us that bitter and sweet waters should not come out of the same fountain, so why do we think we need to make the fountain spew both good and evil?

  37. 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:

    Let your prayers constantly be an incense for the Lord. Day and night allow a fresh fire and savory smell of your prayers.

  38. 21. And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness:

    22. And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land not inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness.

    I thank God for the forgiveness of my sins and because his mercy is new every day. What a beautiful privilege!!

  39. 22 And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land not inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness.

    Together the goat sacrificed and the living scapegoat showed that the goats were substituted for the people and that they bore the penalty of the sin.

    The sacrificed goat perished and the scapegoat took away the impurities and sins to the wilderness. The scapegoat pictures Jesus who bore our sins, and by taking them away, frees us from the guilt of our sins.

  40. Verses 1-2 MSG “After the death of Aaron’s two sons—they died when they came before God with strange fire—God spoke to Moses: “Tell your brother Aaron not to enter into the Holy of Holies, barging inside the curtain that’s before the Atonement-Cover on the Chest whenever he feels like it, lest he die, because I am present in the Cloud over the Atonement-Cover.” How do we approach the Holy of Holies?? Do we just barge in at the last minute or whenever we feel like it?? We have been hearing through the word that it does matter….the condition of our heart and the attitude we have are all so important.

    Hebrews 10:19-25 AMP says ” Therefore, [c]believers, since we have confidence and full freedom to enter the Holy Place [the place where God dwells] by [means of] the blood of Jesus, by this new and living way which He initiated and opened for us through the veil [as in the Holy of Holies], that is, through His flesh, and since we have a great and wonderful Priest [Who rules] over the house of God, let us approach [God] with a true and sincere heart in unqualified assurance of faith, having had our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us seize and hold tightly the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is reliable and trustworthy and faithful [to His word]; and let us consider [thoughtfully] how we may encourage one another to love and to do good deeds, not forsaking our meeting together [as believers for worship and instruction], as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more [faithfully] as you see the day [of Christ’s return] approaching.”

  41. I am thankful that we no longer have to send sacrifices to God because of our sins for the blood of Jesus covers our sins. Now when I realize I have sinned I only need to repent and ask for forgiveness.

  42. 13 There in the LORD’s presence he will put the incense on the burning coals so that a cloud of incense will rise over the Ark’s cover—the place of atonement—that rests on the Ark of the Covenant.d If he follows these instructions, he will not die.

    Obedience leads to life. There are consequences when you disobey. Aaron found out the hard way, when his sons did not fully follow instructions. Aaron I’m sure thank the Lord, that he used Moses to warn him, follow instructions carefully.

  43. “because on this day atonement will be made for you, to cleanse you. Then, before the Lord, you will be clean from all your sins. It is a day of sabbath rest, and you must deny yourselves; it is a lasting ordinance.”
    ‭‭Leviticus‬ ‭16:30-31‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    For all those that want to say the sabbath day is for being lazy….wrong, it’s for your sake! This is not a “me day” but rather a “not about all about Jesus day.” So, get up, get dressed, and let’s go to church!
