45 - The book of Leviticus is the book of law

Kathleen's thoughts

These scriptures today are about the laws given to Moses to Aaron and his sons about the sin offerings and the atonement for the priests and the Israelites.

Leviticus 16... Moses was told by God that Aaron is not allowed to come whenever he wants into the holy place behind the veil in front of the mercy seat on the ark or else he will die, because I appear in the cloud above the mercy seat.
Verse 34 This is to be a permanent statute for you to make atonement for the Israelites once a year because of all their sins.

Leviticus 17... 10. Anyone from the house of Israel or from the foreigners who live among them who eats any blood. I will turn against that person who eats blood, 11 For the life of a creature is in the blood. and I have appointed it to you to make atonement on the altar for your lives, since it is the lifeblood that makes atonement...Therefore I say to the Israelites; None of you and no foreigner who lives among you may eat blood.

Leviticus 1:9 A fire offering is a pleasing aroma to the Lord.

One thing I have noticed through these scriptures is that God is very clear on cleanliness especially when the Priest enter the Tent and holy place. The garments that were used in the tent of meeting never left that area the Priest had to take their garments off. Because it was holy unto the Lord.

The five main Levitical offerings
1. Burnt offering = dedication
2. Grain offering = Thanksgiving
3. Fellowship offering = Fellowship
4. Sin offering = Cleansing
5. Restitution offering = Reconciliation
