Leviticus Chapter 1 Discussion

    Leviticus Chapter 1

    In this chapter, God instructs Moses concerning the types of offerings that the Israelites are to willingly bring before Him. These can be a bull, ram, or fowl, depending on what a person can afford. The animal is to be without defect. There are specific ways for the person or the priest to slaughter the animal and then how the blood is drained and sprinkled on or around the altar. There are instructions about how the animal is to be cut apart before being placed on the wood of the fire on the brazen altar of sacrifice.

    Animal sacrifice goes all the way back to Adam and Eve. God slaughtered the animal to make clothing for Adam and Eve after they sinned. Adam and Eve felt the guilt of their sin. The covering of animal skins covered their guilt. The slaughter of the animal was the way God wanted the O.T. believers to have their sins removed from them. It is interesting to think that it was not just the killing of the animal, but also the burning of it that was part of the sacrifice. Perhaps the significance of burning the animal parts is to indicate that sins and/or guilt are being burned away from the offender.

    The sacrifice was to be made in the tabernacle, where God meets with his people. So, the Israelites could not just make an altar anywhere and offer a sacrifice as the earlier patriarchs did. Here God was dealing with the Israelites as a unified nation, not so much as individuals who could "do their own thing" before God.

    It seems that God was forming in the hearts of this nation worship practices that are common to all. It seems that He was being so specific in His instructions that He may be testing them to see if they will do things His way or their own way or the way they did things in Egypt. So, consistency is a good teacher. God was also instructing them that they are not to approach Him any old way. Rather, to esteem Him to be so authorative and holy that if He says to do something a specific way, it is best for them to do so

    I inadvertently neglected to mention, the Scripture Passage where God spoke to Noah has been gleaned from Genesis 9:2
  • John anonymous - in Reply on Leviticus 1
    For what it may be worth:

    God reportedly told Noah:

    "...the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered."

    Now, consider (if you will) the description of Leviathan in Job chapter 41:

    19 Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out.

    20 Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron.

    21 His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth.

    33 Upon earth there is not his like, who is made without fear.

    34 He beholdeth all high things: he is a king over all the children of pride.

    The last dinosaur?

    ...who had been "made without fear"?
  • Becky on Leviticus 1
    Where in the bible does it speak of dinosaurs? Seriously, they were real right?
  • Offerings Unto the Lord - in Reply on Leviticus 1
    Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary

    Lev. 1:10-17 Those who could not offer a bullock, were to bring a sheep or a goat; and those who were not able to do that, were accepted of God, if they brought a turtle-dove, or a pigeon. Those creatures were chosen for sacrifice which were mild, and gentle, and harmless; to show the innocence and meekness that were in Christ, and that should be in Christians. The offering of the poor was as typical of Christ's atonement as the more costly sacrifices, and expressed as fully repentance, faith, and devotedness to God. We have no excuse, if we refuse the pleasant and reasonable service now required. But we can no more offer the sacrifice of a broken heart, or of praise and thanksgiving, than an Israelite could offer a bullock or a goat, except as God hath first given to us. The more we do in the Lord's service, the greater are our obligations to him, for the will, for the ability, and opportunity. In many things God leaves us to fix what shall be spent in his service, whether of our time or our substance; yet where God's providence has put much into a man's power, scanty offerings will not be accepted, for they are not proper expressions of a willing mind. Let us be devoted in body and soul to his service, whatever he may call us to give, venture, do, or suffer for his sake.

    His crop with his feathers - The weight of authority is in favor of the marginal rendering. It is most probable that the feathers were burned with the body, and that the wings, mentioned in Leviticus 1:17, were not mutilated.

    What significance was the difference in the placement of the sacrifices around the alter. Why the dove feathers in the ashes?

  • GRACE_ambassador {ChrisE} on GRACE "Time Frame" - in Reply on Leviticus 1
    Precious friend, Grace Miller: God's Scriptural "Time Frames"? We are in (GRACE/MYSTERY):

    Prophecy and Law were, in Scriptures: Matthew until Acts 8, After ISRAEL "fell" in Acts 7!

    (We are The Body Of CHRIST In GRACE, According To The Revelation Of The MYSTERY. This is from Acts 9 when our "pattern," Paul, was saved. God's Transition from Law Over To GRACE continued until Acts 28, when he "set ISRAEL aside, blinding them," and "concluding them IN SIN with the Gentiles." GRACE has been "In Effect" for almost 2000 years, and when "IT ENDS" At our Great GRACE Departure To Heaven - see Romans - Philemon), THEN:

    God Will Resume His Prophetic Program again, with Israel and the nations in The Time Of Jacob's Trouble. The Scriptures For This "Time Frame" are HEBREWS - Revelation with the associated "prophecies" from Daniel and Matthew!

    Grace Miller, Please Be Richly Encouraged, Enlightened, Exhorted, And Edified!

    Hi Rick I believe in the Church that started in the book of Acts Pentecost Birthday of the beginning of the Body of Christ, that meaning it is the Church of God. The people in it are called Christians that is what is says in Gods Word. In His Service.
  • Rick - in Reply on Leviticus 1
    Hi Rick Bridge I am saying I'm a Christian which started in Antioch of syria when believers knew they had Christ in them.

    In His Service
  • Rick Bridge - in Reply on Leviticus 1
    So, are you saying you are Pentecostal/Apostolic? and you believe the church in the book of Acts?
  • Rick - in Reply on Leviticus 1
    Good Morning Grace Miller We are in the Grace Administration which started day of Pentecost and will end when Christ comes back for His Church The body of Christ of which He is the Head. Some people call it the Rapture it is written in Thessalonians as the gathering together unto Him. The Epistles Romans thru Thessalonians covers it. The lettrs that start out unto the Church of God to the saints.
  • Making Time To Study Jesus Up Close - in Reply on Leviticus 1
    Myself, I keep a marker in Matthew 24 and Luke 21. Granted, Jesus was preaching to mostly farmers, fishermen, just regular people. He gave us signs to watch for.

    I don't believe we can just pick and choose books to read. One way to make study easier, is to purchase a KJV Study Bible with CENTER OF EACH PAGE, COLUMN REFERENCES. With tiny alphabet letters. Those are references to more information and prophesies. Some have been fulfilled, others are being fulfilled every day.

    If a little letter is in the scripture you are reading, hold your place, stop and flip over to that scripture and it will enlarge your understanding.

    I get a lot more reading done if I just turn off the noise of tv for an hour. I keep a legal pad to scribble notes on it.

    Sometimes I find a Bible Reader on YouTube so I can just listen (Alexander Scourby is good)

    To, Bible being read out loud. God rewards us for our diligence. If something is hard to understand, just ask your Teacher (Holy Spirit please help me understand that thought).

    We are always in this comment room to help each other with questions. Come by often. :)

    Verse 1-Moses had the privilege of representing Jehovah God before the people and telling them his words. This shows that Moses was God's choice and the people should have listened to him and respected him.

  • Mishael - in Reply on Leviticus 1
    You did good!

    Sometimes I feel like a twisted voice crying out in the wilderness. In the prayer request room I saw that people are being oppressed from lack of knowledge. I asked the Lord what I was to do.

    For so long, people ask why God is letting all the bad things happen. My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. One of satans names: Destroyer.

    I'm praying for people to get sick of watching dance shows, talent shows, super strength shows: to hate the superficial poison of people who only love the money. To me it looks like a spider that drains its victims dry. My heart aches for people always watching other people on YouTube. Even little children. I'm learning war. They will be Left Behind and I can't bear that thought.

    Cling to Jesus. Worship His Holiness.

    Did you know? The air of heaven is Faith.

    John, the possession of humans by evil spirits is very real. Even when looking at examples of this in the Bible, where Jesus dealt with them (e.g. Luke 4:33-36; Mark 9:20-27; Matthew 17:14-18; etc.) we know that this demonic activity was very much evident in those days as it is in ours. As Mishael has warned, that fooling around with occultic practices, even laying open our minds by use of drugs or pursuit of demonic religions, makes one highly susceptible to demonic possession, or oppression.

    My personal experience of one such occasion was when sharing in a Bible study in another country. My passage was actually on 1 Peter chapter 3, sharing with families in that respect. So, it was a study not essentially on the Cross or victory over Satan, etc., yet a lady in our midst appeared overcome with heaviness (sadness on her face) & later began to shake a little & then uncontrollably. I thought it weird given the passage of Scripture being looked at, but had later come to realize that when God's powerful Word is opened & read, then the spirits are also troubled. Indeed, "the devils (i.e. demons) believe & tremble" (Js 2:19). That woman wasn't shaking because of an affliction or being moved by my teaching: those which possessed her were agitated at the reading of God's Word. The end of that, was that my indigenous brother took charge & dispatched that evil spirit from out of her. She fell onto the bench she was sitting on & later recovered smiling & joining us in sweet fellowship, being freed from her torment. After some days, we visited her to see how she & her family were doing: and PTL they were all overjoyed in her release & being normal & useful in the home.

    I just share the above to give you a personal witness of such things that go on all the time. Evil forces surround us, many succumb in different ways, but to the child of the Living God, he walks on with joy & confidence, knowing that "greater is He that is in us, than he that is in the world (Js 4:4).
  • Mishael on the Dark Side of the Devil - in Reply on Leviticus 1
    Yep. People in the Occult, Reading Horoscopes. Tarot Cards. Fortune Tellers at the circus or phone psychics. Pornography. Sorcery is the practice of doing drugs, dope, alcohol; buying Wiccan love potions or other injectable products; strong belief in Halloween type magic.

    Then there's the full on satanists: with their book of shadows. It ain't good. There's thousands of ways to part human beings with their cash. There are levels in satan that can do things to people who opened the door for them to come in.

    There are wicked human spirits: people who give use of their spiritual bodies, so the demon can murder. Satan owns their souls.

    If a person has not received Jesus Christ to be their Savior; been born again and received the Holy Spirit... they have no protection from the demonic realm. Nothing but the Holy Blood of Jesus Christ can save us; protect us; protect the family; protect those that we love.

    I'm not a deliverance minister but I've survived an attack. The Blood of Jesus is more powerful than you may know. Angels (big ones) are real. Everything the Bible teaches about this is absolutely Real.

    We already are able to see a demonically driven crowd on tv, destroying everything in their path. Steal, Kill, Destroy, Violence, hatred. It was the same kind of crowd that screamed for Jesus to be Crucified!!

    Barabas was a cold blooded killer and that is who got to go home that day.

    The Good News is that Satan thought he was finally going to see the Son of God die on a Roman Cross! He exulted in every moment of Jesus's pain and then His death. He even had the Romans post a detail of guards outside the Tomb. Satan was just about to go to a party when the stone rolled away! Jesus stepped out and smiled.

    How much does Satan hate people? Lots.

    Don't dabble in the black practices. Get saved. Idols are doorways. Get rid of it.

    Yes it is true. As a human being, you are a spirit, you have a soul (your mind, will and emotions) and you live in your physical body. What gives you and I thr right to interact here, is the physical body. Look at the physical body as an earth suit just like staying on the moon needs wearing a suit to survive here.

    Demonic powers also want to have a way to have influence on this earth. That is the reason why the demons try so much to look for a physical body to work through. So yeah, demons can and do try to possess physical bodies.

    That is why you and I must be full of God.

    I was lead to stop what I was doing and to respond again, to provide Biblical references. Out of many the following scriptures stood out to me:

    1 Timothy 4:1

    Matthew 17:18

    James 4:7

    Ephesians 6:10-18

    Luke 4:33-36

    1 Peter 5:8

    God Bless!

    I am not a biblical scholar and can not point to the specific scriptures, my apologies.(Those who can will comment.) But simply, yes, 100%. It is not necessarily the "Hollywood version" either. This is why it is so important for us to follow the word of God. His law. Many things people believe to be normal culture, today, open the doors. Drug usage, the New Age spiritual movement, music, movies, sex addiction and perversion, sin etc. All stemming from SIN. The Bible does offer many accounts. Possession will change a person or cause them to worsen in many ways that are, at times, somewhat easy to "see." Evil spirits want to turn us away from God and his Truth. If you are asking in regards to someone in specific please place a prayer request, here on KJV, for them so that we may pray for them. Prayer is powerful. The good news is God is THE most powerful and has already overcome Satan. It is God that has the authority and power to remove and restore! I sincerely apologize for being vague in regards to scripture and I hope this helps you. God Bless!

    Romans 1:21-23 New Living Translation (NLT)

    21 Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn't worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused. 22 Claiming to be wise, they instead became utter fools. 23 And instead of worshiping the glorious, ever-living God, they worshiped idols made to look like mere people and birds and animals and reptiles.

    Leviticus 20:13-21 speaks of some of God's commands to the children of Israel, in the matter of homosexuality, incest & bestiality. God is really saying, that He has not made mankind to behave like this, they do it of their own volition & because of inherent sin in them. His penalty for such behaviour was death, as it was gross wickedness, akin to wilful murder, witchcraft, etc. Fortunately for us, post Crucifixion, that the door of God's Mercy is still open & forgiveness is still available for any caught up in this debauchery. Sadly, the World looks at these relationships as 'Alternative lifestyles', but God clearly says it is Sin & will be judged severely.
