Bible Reading: Leviticus 8-10

Leviticus 8 records the dedication and installation of the Priests. These were men separated by God to do the work in, around and for the Lord and His Tabernacle. This process was commanded by the Lord and carried an important lessons. Those lessons are:

  1. The Priests had to be clean Leviticus 8:6
  2. They had to be properly clothed Leviticus 8:7
  3. They had to be anointed Leviticus 8:12
  4. They had to be covered with the blood of consecration Leviticus 8:23

All of this has a significance to us in the New Testament; it was fulfilled in Jesus Christ. Because of the work of the Lord Jesus we are every whit clean, because of His work on Calvary we who believe are clothed with His righteousness, because of His work of reconciling us to God we are anointed with the Holy Spirit and His blood cleanses us from ALL sin. Because of all of this we who have accepted Christ are a royal priesthood!

Jesus said, “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.” Matthew 5:17

Leviticus 9 records the start of the Priest’s work. Having been properly installed and blessed, they begin the work of sacrificing and service. Every servant of God has the responsibility of doing what he has been separated, consecrated and dedicated to do. I can’t imagine the Old Testament priests being properly prepared and presented, refusing to do what they were supposed to do. It seems today we have SO MANY Christians who should be DOING what God has commanded us to do but they are NOT DOING IT! The chapter ends with a demonstration of God’s power and pleasure. Leviticus 9:23-24 The fire of God fell on the sacrifice in front of all of the people and they fell on their faces.

No sooner had God showed His power and approval of the priests and the sacrifices when the sons of the Aaron, Nadab and Abihu decide to be religious instead of RIGHT. Religion does not always glorify God, in fact most of the time religion is an act to deceive people into believing that the religious person is close to God when the opposite is the truth. God, in a demonstration of His disapproval, kills the men with His fire. Sin ALWAYS leads to DEATH.  James 1:14-15

The chapter ends with a prohibition to use alcohol in any way, at any time and for anything. I think that’s pretty clear. Shame on all of those pretend preachers and priests who refuse to obey and glorify the God of Heaven.
