PostSubject: "ACHREI MOT" (after the death) LEV 16 - 18    Sat Apr 25, 2015 7:37 pm

parsha:  "ACHAREI MOT" :  (After the death. (of Nadab and Abihu)  
TORAH:  Leviticus 16:1-18:30,  HAF-TORAH; Amos 9:7-15, 
BRIT HA-DASHA: Hebrews 9:11-28



When we look at this week's Parsha:  we continue to see something about the death of Nadab and Abihu, what was it really that they did? we can only imagine
have an idea.  Scripture says that they offered, "Strange Fire" before the LORD.  They might have made their own fire instead of getting the hot coals from the Altar
of  incense.  This would be bypassing "Yeshua" and  going straight to YHVH without HIM, since the Brazen altar symbolizes YESHUA, and the fire "judgment" of our
sins, then, by bypassing this, misinterprets what the underlying message is saying.  YHVH is also saying "DO NOT COME IN AT ALL TIMES UNTO THE HOLY PLACE
WITHIN THE VEIL, BEFORE THE ARK COVER WHICH IS UPON THE ARK, THAT HE DIE NOT! (LEV 16:1)    So, could it be that Nadab and Abiju entered into the
Holy of Holies, and offered their fire "before (in front of) the LORD? and thus were struck down by YHVH's Holy fire?  This also might be the truth of the matter.  Their
intentions were good, but to come to YHVH on "their" terms just didn't cut it.  YHVH has set down the game plan, to enter into the Holy of Holies was only permitted
ONCE per YEAR, and then, only by the High Priest.  This parsha is about YOM KIPPUR.  The Holiest of G-d's Moedim.  It is a time of reflection on one's soul, on our
relationship with Adonai.  Whereas before, in ancient times, before Yeshua, the sins of people were only "covered" for one year, and then, the priest had to make atonement
again for another year.  The two goats that were presented had special meaning, the one "sacrificed" symbolized our sins that were nailed to the cross and dealt with,  the other goat that was "sent out into the wilderness" symbolizes how our sins were "sent away from us" never to return"   




But now, under Messiah Yeshua, our sins have been atoned for once and forever, on the cross.  We don't have to wait a whole year to have fellowship with Messiah, we can
come to Him 24-7, day and night.  That is so wonderful, we really do live under a better covenant.  When we go on reading we come to a set of mitzvoth which are varied, in chap 19, under "K'doshim" (holy ones) it talks about not "making cuts or imprints on the flesh" in modern translations, the word "tattoos" is used.  This goes against the modern trend today that many are following, we see all over, people walking around with tattoos, God says NO! if He wanted us to have tattoos, we would have been born with some.  But ALL is forgiven under the blood, even tattoos, but those things will remain with us for a lifetime (unless somehow, the person can remove them). 
________________________________________________________________________________________________
AMOS 9:7-15


"I will bring back the captives of my people Israel" words so true, and since 1948, the sons of Israel have been returning to the Land.  Yes, Israel was indeed "sifted" as wheat, and cast out of the land, and the Israelites went into different parts of the world.  Today we can more or less say that there are the "Ashkenazim" (the Jews of Germany and East Europe) the "Sephardim" (The Jews of Spain, North African, and middle east) and the "Falashim" the Jews of Africa and especially Ethiopia.  They all went out among the heathens, those that worshipped idols, and introduced them to the "ONE GOD" of the bible, and after Yeshua, God sent out his Talmidim to preach the Good News that Yeshua paid the price of sin once and for all time, to Greece, Rome, Asia minor, and Spain, (and to India by the apostle Thomas)
______________________________________________________________________________________________
HEBREWS 9:11-28


Messiah Yeshua came as "High Priest" of the "good things to come"  which are the blessings of the Brit Hadasha, that He paid our sin price in full, so now, we CAN come ANYTIME unto the Holy of Holies,  it isn't that it is a different covenant, it is still a "Blood Covenant" , yet no longer the blood of clean animals, but the blood of Yeshua, whose blood did indeed wipe away ALL of our sins.


______________________________________________________________________________________________
just a few more thoughts on last week's parsha "Metzorah" (infected ones) we learned that "leprosy" (skin diseases) rendered one "tamei" (unclean) and until the disease passed, the person had to live alone, an outcast, sometimes, the disease was a skin rash, which would go away, at other times, it was the dreaded disease "Hanson's disease" which is the "leprosy" that everyone imagines,  there is a word that is related to "metzorah" and that is "Motzirah" which means "one who speaks evil and gossips untruths" could it be that the "infected ones" received skin diseases because of their evil talk? 
something to think about, the next time we open our mouths to speak about someone.  It is said, "If you can't speak well about someone, don't say anything at all"

Thank you for your comment,
   We need to look at the word "rabbi" in view of both the modern and ancient middle east meaning. One meaning is as you say, "teacher".  There is nothing wrong with calling someone "teacher" it is just a fact, that such and such A person has studied and has earned that title,
  Would you get upset if you were to receive a letter from your "earthly father" and he signs it "dad" ? is not "dad" also your "teacher"? are not college professors also "teachers?" but we still call them that, "professor Williams" professor Schwarz" etc, that is their title, is it not?
   The word "rabbi" is just another way of saying "teacher" in Hebrew.  That was and is a common title, as long as one teaches the "truth" yes, there are many false teachers, many teach the theory of evolution as if it were truth, those who teach that there are many ways to God, are also "false" because Yeshua said, "I AM the WAY, the truth, and the life, no one comes to the Father but by me"
   But the word/title "rabbi" also has a deeper meaning, in the Aramaic, which was the common language of Israel in the times of Jesus, meant also "my exalted one" (raboni) this title was reserved only for GOD. So, I believe that when Yeshua said, "call no man rabbi or raboni" he was referring to the title "My exalted One" or "GOD" so, He is really saying, "Call no man God"
