Leviticus 17 Observations

Leviticus 17:11 “…for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.”

And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.

Hebrews 9:22

Hebrews 11 Observations

Hebrews 11:6 This verse shows two essential components of having faith. 1) Believe that YAHUAH Elohim is. He is the Everlasting Elohim. He is the Almighty Elohim. He is the Creator of the heavens and the earth. He is the only true and living Elohim. 2) Believe that YAH rewards those who diligently seek Him. YAH is not playing hide-and-seek with us. He takes no pleasure in frustrating us as we diligently seek Him.

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

Matthew 7:7

And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.

Luke 11:9

Sin, however, does delight in obscuring our diligent search for YAH. YAH does not purposely hide from us. Sin and its accompanying cloak of darkness does this to us—hides our ability to see YAH and His beautiful ways, thereby preventing us from ever seeking Him.

Hebrews 11 As I read the history in this chapter which describes faith, I can see an unwritten common thread. Each person mentioned had to have diligently sought YAH for answers, direction, wisdom, and His will in the situations that they faced. Here are a few questions of my opinion that some of them could have diligently sought YAH for the answers. These are not Scripture, just conjecture on my part:

Abel: YAHUAH, how should I offer sacrifice to you? Or Abel could have diligently sought YAHUAH by obeying his priest-of-his-home father, Adam, who taught him the way to properly sacrifice to YAHUAH. Cain did not diligently seek YAH by disobeying his father, Adam, who more than likely instructed his sons in properly sacrificing to YAH.

Enoch: How can I walk uprightly before you, YAH, even in this wicked world that I live in?

Noah: How do you want me to build this boat for the unprecedented rain to come?

Abraham’s call to leave Babylon could have been YAH’s response to Abraham’s already diligently seeking YAH while surrounded by wickedness in Babylon that just didn’t make common sense. Why, YAH, is everyone around me so sick and miserable? Yet, they are so devoted to these idol gods. There’s got to be a better way.

There seems to be a commonality among all the people mention in this chapter. Their desire for YAH’s way was paramount over comfort and convenience. They were more concerned with YAH’s way of righteousness than walking the course of this world. Even Samson came to diligently seek YAH in this regard at the end of His life.

Disclaimer

Please, please comment below if you see ANYTHING that is contrary to Scripture that I have presented in these Scripture Observations. I want Truth and when I see that I have made a mistake, I want to correct that. No chips on my shoulders here.

I also ask one thing, though. Please, please present your thoughts in the context of two or three Scripture references, not just one (see Deuteronomy 17:6; Matthew 18:16; 2 Corinthians 13:1). One verse (especially one verse out of context) will not be received as evidence. I am just not one to interpret Scripture or accept other’s interpretation of Scripture apart from the written Word of YAH found in the whole counsel of His written Word.

I try my best to limit the use of the precursor words of “I think” or “I believe” without Scripture to back up my “I thinks” and “I believes.” Not only on this site, but be on the lookout anywhere else for excessive “I think” and “I believe” statements presented as Truth, with no Scriptural evidence to back up the statements.

The written Word of YAHUAH is the standard, the vanguard against deception which as you know is quite rampant these days.
