Notes from My Torah Study
Leviticus 16 Authorities must atone for their own sins before making intercession for others.
(Plank out of your own eye, then help people with specks.)
Position does not make them infallible, but if anything, makes them more responsible for sin.
When he makes atonement, the priest has no audience, but the tangible presence YHWH, the only One Whom he should care to please.
Any leader should be thus humbled before his maker, mindful of his responsibility and conscious of the ultimate Authority Whom he must serve before thinking to please any mortal.
In obeying his God first, the leader is serving his fellow men best.
17 v.3&4 ???Does this apply to any slaughter for food, or only to slaughter for worship???
v.11 “…For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the slaughter-place to make atonement for your lives, for it is the blood that makes atonement for the life.”
18 Don’t live by Egyptian or Canaanite standards; do this YHWH’s way and live.
Ezekiel 22:1-19 America, fear and repent.
John 7 v.19 “Did not Mosheh give you the Torah? Yet not one of you does the Torah! Why do you seek to kill Me?” Yashuah had issue with those ignoring Torah.
v.24 “Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment.” Forget appearances before an audience. Serve with righteousness.
Nehemiah 9 Given much, now we are servants and slaves.
