Leviticus 6 Observations

Leviticus 6:1-7 Loving our neighbor is the willof YAH. The Messiah said this about loving our neighbor:

Master, which is the great commandment in the law? YAHUSHA said unto him, Thou shalt love YAHUAH thy Elohim with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.  This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.  On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. 

Matthew 22:36-40

The commandment to love our neighbor was originally given in the Torah in Leviticus 19:18. As we endeavor to fulfill this commandment, we must ask a logical question. Exactly how are we supposed to love our neighbor?

There must be a standard for loving our neighbor. Otherwise, each of us will love our neighbor(s) according to what we think is right. In a world that is increasingly calling evil good and good evil, this is problematic.

Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 

Isaiah 5:20

Leviticus 6:1-7 is just one of many exact instructions on how to love our neighbor. Here is a summary:

  1. It is loving to tell our neighbors the truth and not to lie to them.
  2. It is loving to not deceive our neighbors in any way.
  3. It is loving to return our neighbor’s items in the same or even better condition that we received them.
  4. It is loving to make restitution if items from our neighbor are lost or stolen.

When we do away with the Law (the Torah, the Commandments of YAH) that Messiah, Himself did not do away with (Matt. 5:17), we are left with creating our own standards for loving our neighbor(s). I appreciate YAH’s Law. It removes the guesswork from day-to-day living and keeps us out of sin’s territory.

Leviticus 6:6-7 It’s a sin to deceive our neighbors.

Leviticus 6:12 The fire shall not be put out.

6:13 The fire shall ever be burning upon the altar. It shall not go out.

Know ye not that ye are the temple of Elohim, and that the Ruach of Elohim dwelleth in you?  1

Corinthians 3:16

What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Ruach Qodesh which is in you, which ye have of Elohim, and ye are not your own? 

1 Corinthians 6:19

I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Ruach Qodesh, and with fire: 

Matthew 3:11

John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Ruach Qodesh and with fire: 

Luke 3:16

I’m seeing some connections with these verses. How about you?

Leviticus 6:16 & 6:17 Double emphasis on the meat offering (not flesh meat at all) not having any leaven associated with it.

Leviticus 6:14-18 These verses remind me of the Messiah’s words:

YAHUSHA saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work. 

John 4:34

Of course, his doing of YAH’s will was leaven free when he came to the first time. YAH’s will is the leaven-free meat that each of us should delight to always do, just as our Messiah perfectly did.

Hebrews 6:4-6 Lots of falling away today

Hebrews 6:4-5 Key word in verse four is “tasted.” That’s the problem. Simply taste testing the way of righteousness is not enough to withstand deceptions. We have to eat the entire scroll so to speak:

And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.  And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter. 

Revelation 10:9-10

YAH’s Word is indeed sweet to our ruach, but bitter to our flesh that naturally wants to do what it wants, when it wants and how it wants. A dab-a-do of the narrow way will not do at all.

Hebrews 6:10-12 Key words: work, labor, ministered, do minister, diligence, not slothful.

Hebrews 6:13 Unilateral covenant

Hebrews 6:13-20 YAHUAH Elohim, the original promise keeper

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.
