(Leviticus 9:1-11:47) After the seven days of installation of Aaron and his sons we see that the glory of the Presence of GOD comes to dwell in the sanctuary. Part of this Parasha indicates that we have a challenge. We must meet GOD on His terms, as a pure and holy people. We read that the priests were to prepare GOD's people to approach Him through sin offerings, burnt offerings and grain offerings.
Last weekend ended the Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread holiday. For us, just as for GOD's people in the past, we need to approach GOD in purity, without contamination. We got rid of the old yeast and become a new batch of bread with no leavening, malice, or wickedness after we removed the leaven, not only from our homes, but our spiritual homes also. We studied, learned and hopefully put into action by crucifying our flesh (Gal 2:20) and live by faith in the work of the Messiah who now lives within us.
