It's important that we try to comprehend the holiness of God that we might revere Him properly and that the awe and fear of Him help us to obey Him. He has told us that the Old Testament is to be a "schoolmaster" for those of us living in the Christian dispensation. There is so much for us to learn there. Here's another interesting fact:

We know that when God had Moses make the tabernacle (tent His presence would dwell in with His chosen people, the Hebrews), that He was extremely specific as to every aspect of it's design, construction, and the procedure of dedicating it and those who would serve Him in it before it was used. It makes sense that there would be continual sacrifices required on behalf of the sinfulness of the people. It makes sense that the High Priest would have to sacrifice for his own sins and that of his household to be forgiven before he served God each time. We are all human and we know how sinful we are.

But here's a deeper fact: God required sacrifices every year to make atonement for the holy place, the tent of meeting and the alter itself...because they "abide with them in the midst of their impurities"! He's saying that even though the tabernacle and all that was in it was made to His holy specifications, was atoned for before they were initially used, that just because they existed in the midst of the sinful people, they were defiled and had to be atoned for again before the High Priest could serve God in the Holy of Holies, before the mercy seat! Inanimate things became defiled simply by existing amongst sinful human beings (which we all are). Wow! That gives one pause! Look at the sinful condition of our society today...

When He was preparing them to enter the Promised Land and posses it, He explained that the people living there were so sinful that even the land was rejecting them, spitting them out. Again, inanimate things responding to sin.

He commands us, "For I am the LORD your God Consecrate yourselves therefore, and be holy, for I am holy." Leviticus 11:44

"He shall make atonement for the holy place, because of the impurities of the sons of Israel and because of their transgressions in regard to all their sins; and thus he shall do for the tent of meeting which abides with them in the midst of their impurities. When he goes in to make atonement in the holy place, no one shall be in the tent of meeting until he comes out, that he may make atonement for himself and for his household and for all the assembly of Israel. Then he shall go out to the altar that is before the LORD and make atonement for it, and shall take some of the blood of the bull and of the blood of the goat and put it on the horns of the altar on all sides. With his finger he shall sprinkle some of the blood on it seven times and cleanse it, and from the impurities of the sons of Israel consecrate it. When he finishes atoning for the holy place and the tent of meeting and the altar, he shall offer the live goat. Then Aaron shall lay both of his hands on the head of the live goat, and confess over it all the iniquities of the sons of Israel and all their transgressions in regard to all their sins; and he shall lay them on the head of the goat and send it away into the wilderness by the hand of a man who stands in readiness. The goat shall bear on itself all their iniquities to a solitary land; and he shall release the goat in the wilderness. Then Aaron shall come into the tent of meeting and take off the linen garments which he put on when he went into the holy place, and shall leave them there. He shall bathe his body with water in a holy place and put on his clothes, and come forth and offer his burnt offering and the burnt offering of the people and make atonement for himself and for the people." Leviticus 16:16-24

Leviticus 16:29-34

I thought it fitting that today's gift for you be this gorgeous Burning Bush Paper. In the fall the leaves turn amazing reds and pinks and when the sun shines through them...ohhhh! Easy to see why they named it for the bush Almighty God appeared to Moses in. I recently gave you a box template I made using this paper. I think it looks like rose petals. You can still snag that goodie here. The blank template is still available here.
