Temple and the Priests [P20-P38]
Mitzvah P20: Exodus 25:8 - On building a Sanctuary (Tabernacle/Temple) for Elohim
v.8 “And let them make Me a sanctuary, that I may dwell among them.”
Ex. 26:1 “Moreover you shall make the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine twisted linen and blue and purple and scarlet material; you shall make them with cherubim, the work of a skillful workman.”; 39:32 “Thus all the work of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting was completed; and the sons of Israel did according to all that YHWH had commanded Moshe; so they did.”; 40:34 “Then the cloud covered the tent of meeting, and the glory of YHWH filled the tabernacle.”; Lev. 8:10 “He then placed the breastpiece on him, and in the breastpiece he put the Urim and the Thummim.”; 16:16 “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.”; Num. 1:51 “So when the tabernacle is to set out, the Levites shall take it down; and when the tabernacle encamps, the Levites shall set it up. But the layman who comes near shall be put to death.”; 2:17 “Those who camp next to him shall be the tribe of Asher, and the leader of the sons of Asher: Pagiel the son of Ochran.”; 7:1 “Now on the day that Moshe had finished setting up the tabernacle, he anointed it and consecrated it with all its furnishings and the altar and all its utensils; he anointed them and consecrated them also.”; Josh. 18:1 “Then the whole congregation of the sons of Israel assembled themselves at Shiloh, and set up the tent of meeting there; and the land was subdued before them.”; 1 King 8:4 “They brought up the ark of YHWH and the tent of meeting and all the holy utensils, which were in the tent, and the priests and the Levites brought them up.”; 1 Chr. 21:29 “For the tabernacle of YHWH, which Moshe had made in the wilderness, and the altar of burnt offering were in the high place at Gibeon at that time.”; 2 Chr. 1:3 “Then Solomon and all the assembly with him went to the high place which was at Gibeon, for Elohims tent of meeting was there, which Moshe the servant of YHWH had made in the wilderness.”; 5:5 “They brought up the ark and the tent of meeting and all the holy utensils which were in the tent; the Levitical priests brought them up.”; 24:6 “So the king summoned Jehoiada the chief priest and said to him, Why have you not required the Levites to bring in from Yahudah and from Yerushalayim the levy fixed by Moshe the servant of YHWH on the congregation of Israel for the tent of the testimony?”
Heb. 9:11 “But when the Messiah appeared as a high priest of the good things to come, He entered through the greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this creation.”
The Tabernacle of YHWH is the Kingdom of Light where we dwell in to serve Him always.
Blessings of Sanctuary:
Ps 68:24 “ “They have seen thy goings, O Elohim; even the goings of my El, my King, in the sanctuary.”; 77:10-14 “...Thy way, O Elohim, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a Elohim as our Elohim?...”; 150:1 “Praise ye YHWH. Praise Elohim in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power.”; Jer. 17:12 “A glorious high throne from the beginning is the place of our sanctuary.”
The blessings only come out of the Sanctuary (Kingdom of Light) for those who obey His commandments.
Defilement of Sanctuary:
Eze. 23:38-39 “...they have done unto me: they have defiled my sanctuary to profaned my Shabbats. For when they had slain their children to their idols, then they came the same day into my sanctuary to profane it...”; 24:21 “...I will profane my sanctuary, the excellency of your strength, the desire of your eyes, and that which your soul piteth...”
Those who disobey His commandments defile of His Sanctuary (Kingdom of Light) are in His punishments of their lawless deeds.
Parallel of Worldly Sanctuary (made by hands) and Spiritual Sanctuary (not made by hands):
Heb. 8:2 “A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which YHWH pitched, and not man.”; 9:1-28 “Then verily the first covenant had also ordinances of divine service, and a worldly sanctuary. For there was a tabernacle made; the first, wherein was the candlestick, and the table, and the shewbread; which is called the sanctuary. And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all;.....The Holy Spirit this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing....Messiah being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building....”
To understand what the worldly sanctuary and the spiritual sanctuary are identified to know what is right and what is wrong (to do what is of the Law and not to do what is not of the Law). To look at the parallel of worldly things (visible) is to perceive the parallel of spiritual things (invisible).
Without the worldly things of opposition (Light vs. darkness, love vs. hatred, hot vs. cold), we cannot understand the spiritual things. John 3:10-12 “Yahushua answered and said to him, “Are you the teacher of Yisrael and do not understand these things? Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak of what we know and testify of what we have seen, and you do not accept our testimony. If I told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things?”; Matt. 13:14-15 “In their case the prophecy of Yeshayahu is being fulfilled, which says, You will keep on hearing, but will not understand; You will keep on seeing, but will not perceive; For the heart of this people has become dull, with their ears they scarcely hear, and they have closed their eyes, otherwise they would see with their eyes, hear with their ears, and understand with their heart and return, and I would heal them.”
With the understanding of our fleshly bodies (worldly sanctuary) and our spiritual bodies (His sanctuary), everyone has the knowledge of good and evilness in creating the works of opposition that must be separated at the end of fleshly age. The worldly sanctuary (kingdom) is created in the image of Satan in which all the works of lawlessness/ unholiness are accumulated, and the spiritual sanctuary (His holy Kingdom) in the image of YHWH our El (Eloheynu) in which all the works of holiness are preserved by the obedience to His Law of Life.
Dwelling in the tabernacle of YHWH:
Ps. 15:1 “YHWH, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?
Matt. 17:4 “...let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moshe, and one for Eliyahu.”; Heb. 11:9 “By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Yitschak (Issac) and Yaaqov (Jacob), the heirs with him of the same promise.”; 2 Pe. 1:13-14 “Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance; Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our Rabbi Yahushua Messiah hath shewed me.”; Rev. 21:3 “...Behold, the tabernacle of Elohim is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and Elohim himself shall be with them, and be their Elohim.”
We, the children of YHWH, dwell in the spiritual tabernacle (Kingdom of Light).
Temple of Elohim:
1 Cor. 3:16-17 “Know ye not that ye are the temple of Elohim, and that the Spirit of Elohim dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of Elohim, him shall Elohim destroy; for the temple of Elohim is holy, which temple ye are.”
His temple is a true fountain of life to dwell.
Do you not know that you are a temple of Elohim and His Spirit dwells in you?:
1 Cor. 3:16-17 “Do you not know that you are a temple of Elohim and that the Spirit of Elohim dwells in you? If any man destroys the temple of Elohim, Elohim will destroy him, for the temple of Elohim is holy, and that is what you are.”
Any deed of destruction (lawlessness) cannot approach to the temple of Elohim, for the sanctified heart is to separate from the kingdom of lawlessness upon a repentance (point of reversal). What is sown (seed of destruction) evilly shall be reaped back (production of destruction) to the fleshly minded. Everyone has the knowledge of good and evil in creating the opposing works that must be separated into the opposing kingdoms/bodies.
What is bounded (strengthened) in the Temple of Elohim (in you) is much spiritual devotion in obeying His Law of Life. What is loosened (weakened) in the Temple of Elohim (in you) is much fleshly devotion in obeying the deeds of lawlessness. Therefore let us build our bonds of Life in His Temple daily by increasing our spiritual devotion.
What is outside the temple is not measured vs. what is measured in side His temple:
Rev. 11:1-2 "Then there was given me a measuring rod like a staff; and someone said, Get up and measure the temple of Elohim and the altar, and those who worship in it. Leave out the court which is outside the temple and do not measure it, for it has been given to the nations; and they will tread under foot the holy city for forty-two months."
None of the deeds of lawlessness (outside of His Temple) is valued (measured), for they are the works of worthlessness thrown out into the lake of fire (eternal destruction). All the deeds of His sanctification in your spiritual life are preserved (saved) in His Kingdom of Life, in which they are measured in the Kingdom of Life based on the obedience to His Law of Life. Let us refrain all the deeds of lawlessness (opposition) that decrease our spiritual measurement obedience to His Law of Life, but increase more in our spiritual valuation in His Kingdom of Life.
Let them make Me a Sanctuary:
Let those come to repent from the works of corruption and to dwell in the Temple where His Spirit dwell in their hearts.
I may dwell among them:
He sends His Spirit to them who seek the spiritual purification and the guidance of His Kingdom.
Temple of idolatry:
1 Cor. 8:1-13 “...if any man see thee which hast knowledge sit at meat in the idol’s temple, shall not the conscience of him which is weak be emboldened to eat those things which are offered to idols; and through thy knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom Messiah died? But when ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against Messiah...”
Refrain all the things associated which are of idolatry, where there is no fountain of the life in them. 1 Cor. 9:19-23 is to minister to those in their temples (hearts) of weakness, ignorance, blindness, lawlessness, that they may turn right to the Way of Life and learn the Law of Righteousness and dwell in the Temple of Elohim.
Destroy the temple:
John 2:13-21 What it tells us that there are the works of filthiness (greediness, idolatry, strife, hatred, worldly powers) in the hearts (temples) of those who are in ignorance or blindness. All works of filthiness (old man buried) must be destroyed before the Temple of Elohim (new man or creature) can be raised. 2 Cor. 5:17 “...if any man be in Messiah, he is a new creature (Temple of Messiah): old things (works of temple of idolatry) are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
Throw old things out of our hearts (works of flesh) into the fire.
What is a significance of “three days” in verse 19 of John 2? John 2:19 "Yahushua answered them, “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up." There are over 60 “three days” phrases in the Bible.
Gen 40:18-19 “...the three branches are three days; within yet three days shall Pharoah lift up your head, and restore you to your office...”; Ex. 3:18 “...three days’ journey into the wilderness, that we may sacrifice to YHWH our Elohim.”; 10:22-23 “..thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days...but all the children of Yisrael had light in their dwellings.”; 15:23-24 “..they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water....the people murmured against Moshe.”; Jos. 1:11 “...within three days ye shall pass over this Yordan, to go in to possess the land...”; 1 Sam 20:19 “..when thou (David) hast stayed three days...hide thyself...”; 2 Sam. 24:13-17 “...there be three days’ pestilence in thy land?...”; Est. 4:16 “...fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days...”; 2 Kings 2:16-17 “The Spirit of YHWH hath taken him (Eliyahu) up...they sought three days, but found him not.”; Jon 1:17 “...Yonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.”
Matt 12:40 “For as Yonah was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.”; 15:32 “..three days, and have nothing to eat...”; 26:75 “75 And Kepha remembered the word which Yahushua had said, Before a rooster crows, you will deny Me three times. And he went out and wept bitterly.”; Mark 8:31 “...be killed, and after three days rise again.”; 14:58 “I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands.”; Luke 2:46 “..after three days, they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors...”; John 21:17 “He said to him the third time, Simon, son of Yahuchanan, do you love Me? Kepha was grieved because He said to him the third time, Do you love Me And he said to Him, Rabbi, You know all things; You know that I love You. Yahushua said to him, Tend My sheep.”; Acts 9:9 “And he (Shaul) was three days without sight, and neither did eat nor drink.”; 10:16, 19 “This happened three times, and immediately the object was taken up into the sky...While Kepha was reflecting on the vision, the Spirit said to him, Behold, three men are looking for you.”;
Ex. 3:17-18: From the day of affliction of Egypt (Passover), the children of Yisrael went thru the Red Sea (baptism of water) to the wilderness of Shur to serve YHWH in the mountain of holiness (land flowing with milk and honey). The three days indicates at the beginning of our hearts of repentance (Passover/Yahushua/day of Purification), then baptism of water (Holy Spirit/day of first-fruits), and service of YHWH in holiness (Feast of Tabernacles/Father/day of fullness/freedom). For David’s foolishness, Yonah’s disobedience, the complaints of children of Yisrael for no water, and all other manners of afflictions, they needed three days from purification of hearts to restore fully back to serve the holiness of YHWH. Yahushua was killed (His blood purifying our hearts), buried (our sins destroyed), was raised in the Temple of YHWH in our hearts. 1 John 5:4-10 is the indication of three that bear witness in earth (blood, water, Holy Spirit). The meaning of day is the activity of light (works of Spirit).
On building a Sanctuary (Tabernacle/Temple) for Elohim (P20):
Yahushua our Messiah is building a Sanctuary for those who serve YHWH our Eloheynu, where the Holy Spirit dwells in the hearts (temples) of the repentant ones.
Mitzvah P21: Leviticus 19:30 - On respecting the Sancutary
v.30 “My Shabbats ye shall keep, and My sanctuary shall ye reverence: I am YHWH.”
Mark 2:27 “Yahushua said to them, ‘The Shabbat was made for man, and not man for the Shabbat.’”
His Shabbats are sanctified and kept in His holiness for all to observe.
My Shabbats ye shall keep:
As He commands all of us to obey His Law of Life, we are to keep His Shabbats, for the Shabbat meaning the rest from all the works of unrest in which the fleshly minded does daily.
Ex. 20:8-10 “Remember the Shabbat day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Shabbat of YHWH your Eloheyak; in it you shall not do any work, you or your son or your daughter, your male or your female servant or your cattle or your sojourner who stays with you.”; 34:21 “You shall work six days, but on the seventh day you shall rest; even during plowing time and harvest you shall rest.”; 35:3 “You shall not kindle a fire in any of your dwellings on the Shabbat day.”; Neh. 10:31 “As for the peoples of the land who bring wares or any grain on the Shabbat day to sell, we will not buy from them on the Shabbat or a holy day; and we will forego the crops the seventh year and the exaction of every debt.”; Isa. 56:2 “How blessed is the man who does this, And the son of man who takes hold of it; who keeps from profaning the Shabbat, and keeps his hand from doing any evil.”; 58:13-14 “If because of the Shabbat, you turn your foot From doing your own pleasure on My holy day, And call the Shabbat a delight, the holy day of YHWH honorable, And honor it, desisting from your own ways, From seeking your own pleasure And speaking your own word, then you will take delight in YHWH, And I will make you ride on the heights of the earth; And I will feed you with the heritage of Yaaqov your father, For the mouth of YHWH has spoken.”
To observe the Shabbat is to remember His Law of Life written in our hearts and to free us from all the works of unrest, otherwise you forget the Shabbat then you return to the works of unrest.
His sanctuary (Tabernacle/Temple) is given to all who keep His Law and reverence it as it is the most holy. Those who repent of their works of corruption purify them in order to reverence His sanctuary for the Holy Spirit is given to dwell in their hearts (temples).
My sanctuary shall ye reverence:
We all reverence His sanctuary where the Holy Spirit is given to us after our purification from all the works of filthiness.
Reverence for the Sanctuary:
Ecc. 5:1 “Guard your steps as you go to the house of Elohim and draw near to listen rather than to offer the sacrifice of fools; for they do not know they are doing evil.”; John 2:16 “and to those who were selling the doves He said, Take these things away; stop making My Father's house a place of business.”
To reverence His Sanctuary is to obey His commandments in holiness.
Reverence of Temple:
Ec. 5:1 “Keep thy foot when thou goest to the house of Elohim, and be more ready to hear, than to give the sacrifice of fools: for they consider not that they do evil.”; Jn. 2:16 “Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise.”
1 Cor. 3:16-17 “Know ye not that ye are the temple of Elohim, and that the Spirit of Elohim dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of Elohim, him shall Elohim destroy; for the temple of Elohim is holy, which temple ye are.”
The temple of Elohim is Holy Spirit: 1 Cor. 3:16-17; 6:19 “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit which is in you, which ye have of Elohim, and ye are not your own? “Not your own” is not of your self-righteous (unrepentant) temple/heart.
Pollutions of Temple:
Lev 7:21 “..the soul that shall touch any unclean thing (dead [fleshly] works)...”; 15:11; 21:1; Nu 9:6; De 21:23; 2 Chr 33:7 “...carved image, the idol...”; 36:14 “...after all the abominations of the heathen; and polluted the house of YHWH..”; Jer. 7:30; Eze. 8:16 “...their backs toward the temple of YHWH, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east.”; 44:6-9 “...In that ye have brought into my sancutary strangers, uncircumcised in heart, and uncircumcised in flesh, to be in my sanctuary, to pollute it, even my house, when ye offer my bread, the fat and the blood, and they have broken my covenant because of all your abominations...”; Zep. 3:4.
Jn. 2:14-15 “And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, the chargers of money sitting...”; 1 Cor. 8:1-13; 2 Cor. 6:16 “And what agreement hath the temple of Elohim with idols? for ye are the temple of the living Elohim; as Elohim hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their Elohim, and they shall be my people.”
Associate not with the temples (hearts of ignorance or uncleanness) for they are of the laborers of worldly principles, not the spiritual principles. 1 Cor. 9:19-23 is to minister to those in their temples (hearts) of weakness, ignorance, blindness, lawlessness, that they may turn right to the Way of Life and learn the Law of Righteousness and dwell in the Temple of Elohim.
The keeping of My Shabbat:
Ex. 20:8-11 is to hallow and keep His Shabbat; Ex. 34:21; Is. 56:2 “Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the Shabbat from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil.”; 58:13-14 “If thou turn away thy foot from the Shabbat, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the Shabbat a delight, the holy of YHWH, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, not finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words...”
Gen 2:3 is first mentioned of sanctification of His Shabbat; Ex. 16:23; Ps. 92 is the song for the Shabbat day.
Shabbat made for man:
Matt 12:5-8 “...the priests in the temple profane the Shabbat...That in the place is one greater than the temple...The Son of man is Rabbi even of the Shabbat day.”; Mk 2:27 “The Shabbat was made for man, and not man for the Shabbat: Therefore the Son of man is Rabbi also of the Shabbat.”; He. 4:4
The fleshly temple (heart of uncircumcision) cannot abide in the eternal rest (shabbat) of our Heavenly Father. Heb. 4:1-6 “...For we which have believed do enter into rest (shabbat)...it was first preached entered not in because of unbelief.”
Only the spiritual temple (heart of circumcision) can enter into the Kingdom of Shabbat while the uncircumcised abides in the kingdom of unrest.
Matt 11:28-30 “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest (shabbat). Take my yoke upon you and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Learn of me (I am the Word): Gal. 5:14 “For the whole law is fulfilled in one Word (Yahushua)...”
The Shabbats determined within the lunar month:
Isa. 66:23 “23 And it shall be from new/full moon to new/full moon And from Shabbat to Shabbat, all mankind will come to bow down before Me, says YHWH.”; Amos 9:5-6 “ saying, When will the new/full moon be over, so that we may sell grain, and the Shabbat, that we may open the wheat market, to make the bushel smaller and the shekel bigger, And to cheat with dishonest scales, so as to buy the helpless for money and the needy for a pair of sandals, and that we may sell the refuse of the wheat?"
Only the Shabbats are determined after the Full/New Moon which is 1st day of the lunar month announced thru the Levitical priests whereas the 4 Shabbats fall on 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th which are commonly written in the Bible. No man can put the Shabbat on the 7th day of the Gregorian/Babylonian or other man-made week or His festivals on their man-made calendars, other than His lunar calendar sanctified to observe the Shabbats and days of feasts.

In Greek translation: Matt. 28:1 “Now late on the Shabbat, as it was dawning toward the first of the Shabbat, .....” The first of the Shabbat means the first day prior to the next Shabbat within its week. It begins at the end of the previous Shabbat to start the count of 7 Shabbats. Also it is the day of Wave Sheaf (16th) which is the beginning of the count of 7 Shabbats to the day of Shavuot.
No word “week” is written in Greek anywhere in the Greek N.T. All the words of “Shabbat...” are only found in the Greek N.T. It shows that the Shabbat is a highest honorable and hallowed day of all for those who believe in His word abide in His eternal rest. Those who honor the man-made days more than the Shabbat holy day are not worth to enter into the Kingdom of Holiness for He is the Master of Shabbat.
There are two Sabbatown words in Matt. 28:1, but there is one Sabbatown word in Mark 16:2, Luke 24:1; John 20:1, 20:19; Corinthians 16:2. The Day of Wave Sheaf or of First-fruits (Yahushua’s resurrection - Daniel 9:26 the Messiah [the first sheaf] cut), which is after the Shabbat ended, is the beginning of the count of 7 Shabbats as the commandment comes from Leviticus 23:9-14 (NAS), to the fiftieth day (Shavuot or Pentecost). We see there are other verses telling the beginning of the count and its end: From Matt. 28:1, Mark 16:2, Luke 24:1, John 20:1, 20:19, to Acts 2:1; from Acts 20:7 to 20:16; from 1 Corinthians 16:2 to 16:8. There is no “week” word written in the whole New Covenant.
Shabbat made for man, not man for Shabbat:
The Shabbat is made for man, in which the Shabbats come in the lunar monthly cycle, not man for Shabbat (man chosen the Shabbat day out of other calendars. The four seasons are like the four Shabbats within its lunar month, which are on 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th (autumn, winter, spring, and summer). There are some two-day Full/New Moon observations (1 Sam. 20:5-27) to keep the lunar Shabbat days on the same numbered days every lunar month like there is 2nd Adar when needed to keep the feasts of YHWH in their appointed times. Many use today’s appointed feasts and New moon days based on the lunar calendar but use the Shabbats based on the solar (Gregorian) calendar. We cannot serve two masters which are of the lunar calendar YHWH made for us and of the solar man-made calendar. The Gentiles (unbelievers) hibernate in the winter season because of their lawless deeds, and the repentants (born again) are awakened in the spring season.
What made for man, not man for what!:
From what we read in Mark 2:27 “Yahushua said to them, The Shabbat was made for man, and not man for the Shabbat.”, we see all things are made for us from the beginning to the end according to His plan for man, not we make our own things for our glory! Matt. 6:32-34

Moadim (Feasts): Pesach, Shavuot, Sukkot, as well as Unscriptural feasts: Christmas, Easter, etc.
Yom Kippur and Chodesh (New/Full Moon) feasts. (Lev. 23).
We, the Spirit filled, must seek Him in all His things: 1 Cor. 2: 12-14 “Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from Elohim, so that we may know the things freely given to us by Elohim, which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words. But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of Elohim, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised.” Isa. 55:8-9 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways, declares YHWH. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts.”
On respecting the sanctuary (P21):
We all respect His sanctuary eternally once we all are sanctified from our works of ignorance.
Mitzvah P22: Numbers 18:4 - On guarding the Sanctuary
v.4 “And they shall be joined unto thee, and shall keep the charge of the tent of meeting, whatsoever the service of the Tent may be; but a common man shall not draw nigh unto you.”
They shall be joined unto thee:
Matt. 6:32-33 “For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”; Mark 10:9 “What therefore Elohim has joined together, let no man separate.”; Acts 17:34 “But some men joined him and believed, among whom also were Dionysius the Areopagite and a woman named Damaris and others with them.”
As you receive the Word of Life into your heart, these heavenly things are joined to you when you seek the guidance of His Spirit which dwells in the Temple (tent of meeting) into the higher level of spiritual maturity. Those who believe in the Word of Life join the members of our Messiah.
Tent of the meeting (tabernacle):
Psalms 15:1 “YHWH, who may abide in Thy tabernacle/tent?...”; 27:5 “For in the day of trouble He will conceal me in His tabernacle; in the secret place of His tent He will hide me....”; 61:4 “Let me dwell in Thy tabernacle/tent forever....”; 132:1-5 “...I will not enter the tabernacle of my house....until I find a place for YHWH, a dwelling place for the Mighty One of Yaaqov.”
2 Corinthians 5: 1-20 speaks of the temporal and eternal tabernacle/tent. Hebrews 8: 1-6; 9:2-22 speaks of the true tabernacle of YHWH. 2 Peter 1:12-15 speaks of earthly tabernacle...On the spiritual Feast of Tabernacles/Booths: Store all righteousness (wheat) into the Barn/Tabernacle (Kingdom of our heavenly Father) while all the foolishness (tares) are thrown into the lake of fire.
YHWH dwells in His tabernacle not made with hands: Rev. 21:3...”Behold, the tabernacle of Elohim is among men, and He shall dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and Elohim Himself shall be among them.”
Sanctuary: Temple/Dwelling/Tabernacle (Mishkan):
2 Cor. 6:16-18...For we are the temple of the living Elohim; just as Elohim said, “I will dwell in them and walk among them; And I will be their Elohim and they shall be My people. Therefore, come out from their midst and be separate,” says YHWH. “And do not touch what is unclean; And I will welcome you. “And I will be a father to you. And you shall be sons and daughters to Me.” Says Yahuwah Shaddai.
1 Cor 3:16-17 “Do you not know that you are a temple of Elohim, and that the Spirit of Elohim dwells in you? If any man destroy the temple of Elohim, Elohim will destroy him, for the temple of Elohim is holy, and that is what you are.”
We live in the Temple of the living Elohim where the Holy Spirit come in our hearts/temples in serving YHWH in holiness.
They shall keep the charge of the tent of meeting:
We are the Spirit filled to keep the charge (responsibility) of the tent of meeting where we live in as the Holy Spirit dwells in our hearts.
Whatsoever the service of the Tent may be:
What we have the service from YHWH is communicated thru the Holy Spirit that dwells in our hearts and we perform what is commanded of us.
A common man (stranger):
Ex. 29:33 “...a stranger shall not eat thereof, because they are holy.”; Num.18:4 “...a stranger shall not come nigh unto you.”
A common man is of strange (unclean) temple of worldly principles, that cannot be abided with the spiritual principles which are only in the temple of Elohim (clean heart), for both the fleshly and spiritual temples are in the opposition.
Guarding the temple of holiness in our hearts is against the unholiness or foolishness/ wickedness because Satan is jealous of those who abide in the temple of holiness.
A common man shall not draw nigh unto you:
Rom. 6:12-13 “Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts, and do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to Elohim as those alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to Elohim.”; 7:19 “I am speaking in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness, resulting in further lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness, resulting in sanctification.”
Let the fleshly minded not mislead you from the Way of Life, for his words of deceit/ lawlessness are against the Kingdom of Life.
Num. 1:51 “So when the tabernacle is to set out, the Levites shall take it down; and when the tabernacle encamps, the Levites shall set it up. But the layman who comes near shall be put to death.”; 3:10 “So you shall appoint Aharon and his sons that they may keep their priesthood, but the layman who comes near shall be put to death.”; 38 “Now those who were to camp before the tabernacle eastward, before the tent of meeting toward the sunrise, are Moshe and Aharon and his sons, performing the duties of the sanctuary for the obligation of the sons of Israel; but the layman coming near was to be put to death.”; 4:20 “but they shall not go in to see the holy objects even for a moment, or they will die.”; 16:40 “as a reminder to the sons of Israel that no layman who is not of the descendants of Aharon should come near to burn incense before YHWH; so that he will not become like Korah and his company just as YHWH had spoken to him through Moshe.”; 18:3 “And they shall thus attend to your obligation and the obligation of all the tent, but they shall not come near to the furnishings of the sanctuary and the altar, or both they and you will die.”; 7 “But you and your sons with you shall attend to your priesthood for everything concerning the altar and inside the veil, and you are to perform service. I am giving you the priesthood as a bestowed service, but the outsider who comes near shall be put to death.”; 22 “The sons of Israel shall not come near the tent of meeting again, or they will bear sin and die.”
Only those are called to do His will are excluded of others who are not called to serve Him because of their disbelief.
On guarding the sanctuary (P22):
We guard the Temple where the Holy Spirit dwells in our hearts from all the temptations of wickedness during the trials of our lives by following His Law of Life.
Mitzvah P23: Numbers 18:23 - On Levitical services in the Tabernacle
v.23 “But the Levite(s) shall alone do the service of the tent of meeting, and they shall bear their iniquity; (it shall be) a statute forever throughout your generations, and among the children of Yisrael they shall have no inheritance.”
The Levites shall alone do the service of the tent of meeting:
The duties of Levites are to serve those who seek the spiritual purification and the words of wisdom from the above. They teach the Torah (Law) of Life to all who hunger for His Word that is planted in their hearts.
Tabernacle of the congregation:
We, the congregation of Messiah, dwell in His Tabernacle (Kingdom of Life).
Bear their iniquity:
To bear their iniquity is to remember what they are the works of wickedness and to refrain them eternally.
They shall bear their iniquity:
The Levites bear what is against the Law of Life to seek the forgiveness and restore back to their spiritual levels.
Lev. 23:14 “Until this same day, until you have brought in the offering of your Eloheyak, you shall eat neither bread nor roasted grain nor new growth. It is to be a perpetual statute throughout your generations in all your dwelling places.”; 31 “You shall do no work at all. It is to be a perpetual statute throughout your generations in all your dwelling places.”; 24:3 “Outside the veil of testimony in the tent of meeting, Aharon shall keep it in order from evening to morning before YHWH continually; it shall be a perpetual statute throughout your generations.”; 9 “It shall be for Aharon and his sons, and they shall eat it in a holy place; for it is most holy to him from YHWH's offerings by fire, his portion forever.”; Num. 18:11 “This also is yours, the offering of their gift, even all the wave offerings of the sons of Israel; I have given them to you and to your sons and daughters with you as a perpetual allotment. Everyone of your household who is clean may eat it.”; 19:21 “So it shall be a perpetual statute for them. And he who sprinkles the water for impurity shall wash his clothes, and he who touches the water for impurity shall be unclean until evening.”
It is an eternal law of Word of Light consuming in the pure incense (Temple of Holy Spirit) dwelling in the heart of His chosen one serving YHWH.
Levities having no inheritance:
Since the Levites have no inheritance, they are the servants ministering to all the members of the Body of Messiah (1 Cor. 12:12-14) where the Twelve Tribes of Yisrael are the servants as the organs/spiritual functions of the Body for their services in purity like to eat the Bread of Light, to hear the Word of Life [Shimeon], to walk in the path of Righteousness, to see the goodness of Life [Reuvan], etc. All the members of the Body receive the ministry of the Levites thru their carries/teachings of the Commandments of Life (flow of blood/life) thru the nervous system [Kohath]; their supports of spiritual structure (bones) of the Body [Merari]; and their righteous garments (veins/skins) to clothe the Body [Gershon], while the spiritual ministry of Aharon serves as the spiritual mind in communicating to YHWH for the words of wisdom to understand, prayer requests for forgiveness and cleanness, praises, mediations, etc.
Spiritual Levitical services:
Before we can understand the spiritual Levitical services of the New covenant, can the fleshly body survive without the bones, blood, nerves, veil, or brain, and walk on its own? Can it be perfect without the organs to function such as seeing, hearing, touching, eating. Of course not! Matt. 13:10-17: for those, who are filled with the Holy Spirit, see the physical (1st) covenant and perceive its spiritual (2nd) covenant.
Since the Levites have no inheritance, they are the servants ministering to all the members of the Body of Messiah (1 Cor. 12:12-14) where the Twelve Tribes of Yisrael are the servants as the organs/spiritual functions of the Body for their services in purity like to eat the Bread of Light, to hear the Word of Life, to walk in the path of Righteousness, to see the goodness of Life, etc. All the members of the Body receive the ministry of the Levites thru their carries/teachings of the Commandments of Life (flow of blood/life) thru the nervous system [Kohath]; their supports of spiritual structure (bones) of the Body [Merari]; and their righteous garments (veins/skins) to clothe the Body [Gershon], while the spiritual ministry of Aharon serves as the spiritual mind in communicating to YHWH for the words of wisdom to understand, prayer requests for forgiveness and cleanness, praises, mediations, etc. The booklet of ‘The Heads of State of the Inner Man: The Twelve-four Elders of the Temple’ may be obtained by request thru the website of www.bethashem.org.
Those, who are in the temple (tabernacle) of YHWH (Body of Messiah) where the Holy Spirit dwells in their hearts, have the spiritual Levitical services in their life for their spiritual maturity, security, truthfulness, wisdom, guidance against the uncleanness/wickedness/lawlessness outside the temple. Hebrews 5:5-6; 7:11-11-17; 9:11. Yahushua the Messiah is the Perfect High Priest entering the Tabernacle not made by hands (New covenant), and reigning with His chosen people forever.
It shall be a statute forever throughout our generations:
The statute of all the laws are taught to all thru the Levitical services in all our generations.
Psalms 37:9 “For evildoers shall be cut off: but those who wait upon YHWH, they shall inherit the earth.”; Prov. 3:35 “The wise shall inherit glory: but shame shall be the promotion of fools.”; 8:21-22 “...I may cause those that love me to inheritance substance; and I will fill their treasures. YHWH possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.”; Ezekiel 33:24 “..Abraham was one, and he inherited the land: but we are many; the land is given us for inheritance.”
His inheritance is the spiritual gift given to those who repent of their foolishness for the Way of Righteousness.
They shall have no inheritance among the children of Yisrael:
The Levites are devoted in serving the children of Yisrael where they have no time for their own fleshly things, for they are the services to all to learn more of His Law of Life.
On Levitical services in the Tabernacle (P23):
The Levitical services are always in our hearts (temples) where the Holy Spirit teaches us what to do according to the deeds of His Law.
Mitzvah P24: Exodus 30:19 - On Cohanim (priests) washing hands & feet before entering Temple
v.19-21 “And Aharon and his sons shall wash out of it their hands and their feet; when they come into the tent of meeting, they shall wash (with) water, that they die not; or when they come near to the altar to minister, to burn a fire-offering unto YHWH; so they shall wash their hands and their feet, that they die not; and it shall be to them a statute forever, to him and to his seed throughout their generations.”
Aharon and his sons:
Aharon is illuminated as the spiritual mind where his sons are the instructions of the Word of Life to all the members of the Messiah. The illumination of Aharon (spiritual mind) and his sons (spiritual works) is sanctified in the spiritual birth so that we, the servants of His holiness, are taught of His commandments of Life to understand the Way of His Light shown in our spiritual lives, separating from the works of darkness (lawlessness).
The Aharonic priesthood:
The Aharonic priest (the spiritual mind) of the Body of Messiah must be purified where the altar (heart/temple of Holy Spirit dwelling in Body) is purified.
1 Sam. 2:35-36 “And I will raise me up a faithful priest, that shall do according to that which is in mine heart and in my mind: and I will build him a sure house; and he shall walk before mine anointed for ever...” The sure house is Body of Messiah built on the Rock.
2 Cor 4:16: “For which came we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.”; Eph. 4:23-24 “And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; and that ye put on the new man...”; Col. 3:9-10 “..ye have put off the old man with his deeds; and have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him”.
Gen. 35:2-3 “...Put away the strange elohim/idols that are among you, and be clean, and change your garments. And let us rise, and go up to Bethel; and I will make there an altar unto Elohim...”; Lev. 13:6 “The priest shall look at him again on the seventh day, and if the infection has faded and the mark has not spread on the skin, then the priest shall pronounce him clean; it is only a scab. And he shall wash his clothes and be clean.”; Num. 8:7 “And thou shalt thou do unto them to cleanse them: Sprinkle water of purifying upon them, and let them shave all their flesh, and let them wash their clothes, and so make themselves clean.”; Ruth 3:3 “Wash yourself therefore, and anoint yourself and put on your best clothes, and go down to the threshing floor; but do not make yourself known to the man until he has finished eating and drinking.”
Matt. 6:17-18 “But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face so that your fasting will not be noticed by men, but by your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.”; Heb. 10:22 “let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.”
Cleanliness is the beginning to purify the heart as well as the whole body before receiving the baptism of Holy Spirit to dwell in. The inwardness (heart) and outwardness (body) are the Word planted thru the spiritual mind and action of Word.
Ps. 65:3 “Iniquities prevail against me as for our transgressions, thou shalt purge them away.”; Is. 1:18 “Come now, and let us reason together, saith YHWH though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow: though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.”; Eze. 36:25 “Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.”; Zech 13:1 “In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Yahrushaliem for sin and for uncleanness.”; Mal. 3:3 “And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto YHWH as offering in righteousness.”
Ep. 5:25-26 “Messiah also loved the assembly and gave himself for it; that he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word.”; Tit. 3:5; Heb. 9:14 “How much more shall the blood of Messiah, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to Elohim, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living Elohim?”; 1 John 1:7 “But if we walk in the light as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Yahushua the Messiah his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”; Rev. 1:5 “...Until him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood.”
His daily cleansing of the dead works in our hearts by His blood (the law of purification) in our hearts is to bring us into the Kingdom of Life from the kingdom of uncleanness.
Feet are the directions and movements of what is commanded by the word out of mind. If the word of wickedness is commanded, the feet do what is command in the path of wickedness, but if the word of goodness is commanded, the feet do in the path of righteousness.
Aharon and his sons shall wash out of it their hands and their feet:
Aharon (spiritual mind) and his sons (instructions of the Word) are sanctified to perform where the hands do to promote His Word and the feet move in the right directions.
Priests (Minds) and Kings (Bodies):
Rev. 1:5-6 “...Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, and hath made us kings and priests unto Elohim and his Father...”; 5:10 “And hast made us unto our Elohim kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.”; 20:6 “...they shall be priests of Elohim and and of Messiah...”
We are the priests unto Elohim and kings of our eternal King, for we listen His words to minister to the lost sheep in this world, and we, the children of YHWH, are the body of Messiah to work together to the fullest.
Both Mind (Word of Messiah) and Body (Act/Temple of Holy Spirit) are in one agreement (Kingdom of Life):
1 Chr. 28:9 “...serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind..”; Ps. 19:7-8 “The law of YHWH is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of YHWH is sure, making wise the simple.”; Matt. 5:48 “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven in perfect.”; Heb. 9:11 “...Messiah being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building....”; 1 Cor. 3:16-17 “Know ye not that ye are the temple of Elohim, and that the Spirit of Elohim dwelleth in you?”
The mind (word) and the heart (act) always work together. If it is a good word in the mind, the spirit/heart (act) commits what the good word is spoken, but if it is evil, the act must perform according to it. Therefore the word and the spirit are always in one agreement.
Both the mind and the heart work together in one unity where the Word (Seed) of purity is planted at the beginning where the Spirit of purity does what the Word of purity commands at the end in its cycle/completion of purity.
When they come into the tent of meeting:
They (the Word [mind] and its instructions) come to the temple (tent of meeting)/ heart of those who listen to YHWH when it is commanded to do His will, where the Holy Spirit dwells in the temple inside them.
Imaginations of men:
Mind (evil words of Satan) and Body (wicked acts/temple of idolatry/possessed of devils) are in the destruction (kingdom of death):
Ge. 6:5-7 “And Elohim saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually...”; 1 Chr. 28:9 “...for YHWH searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever.”; Prov. 6:17-18 “A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief.”; Luke 1:51 “...he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.”; Rom. 1:20-23 “..when they knew Elohim, they glorified him not as Elohim, neither were thankful; but because vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened...”; 2 Cor. 10:5-6 “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of Elohim, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Messiah; and having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.”
They shall wash with water:
They (Word and its instructions) are always purified in His Spirit (water).
Ps. 26:6 “I will wash mine hands in innocency: so will I compass thine altar, O YHWH: that I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.”; 73:13 “Verily I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in iinnocency.”
Mt. 27:24 “...he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of the just person: see ye to it.”; Matt. 15:1-20 “...These are the (evil) things (spoken out of his mouth) which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen (outside) hands defileth not a man.”
To wash your hands is to free the evil works to do according to the good words (mind). If those who wash their hands and their words are evil, they remain the unclean spiritually.
Gen. 18:4 “Please let a little water be brought and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree.”; 19:2 “And he said, Now behold, my masters, please turn aside into your servants house, and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise early and go on your way.They said however, No, but we shall spend the night in the square.”; 24:32 “So the man entered the house. Then Laban unloaded the camels, and he gave straw and feed to the camels, and water to wash his feet and the feet of the men who were with him.”; 43:24 “Then the man brought the men into Josephs house and gave them water, and they washed their feet; and he gave their donkeys fodder.”; 1 Sam. 25:41 “She arose and bowed with her face to the ground and said, Behold, your maidservant is a maid to wash the feet of my YHWH’s servants.”; 2 Sam. 11:8 “Then David said to Uriah, Go down to your house, and wash your feet. And Uriah went out of the kings house, and a present from the king was sent out after him.”
Luke 7:44 “Turning toward the woman, He said to Simon, Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave Me no water for My feet, but she has wet My feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair.”; John 13:5 “Then He poured water into the basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet and to wipe them with the towel with which He was girded.”; 1 Tim. 5:10 “having a reputation for good works; and if she has brought up children, if she has shown hospitality to strangers, if she has washed the saints' feet, if she has assisted those in distress, and if she has devoted herself to every good work.”
Their hands and their feet: To do His Word of Life (Innocence) and to walk in the way of Righteousness (Freedom).
That they die not:
We know once those, who are purified with the pure Word dwelling in their temple where the Holy Spirit abides, never die, because YHWH is with them.
Gen. 8:20 “Then Noah built an altar to YHWH, and took of every clean animal and of every clean bird and offered burnt offerings on the altar.”
Matt. 5:23-24 “Therefore if you are presenting your offering at the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your offering there before the altar and go; first be reconciled to your brother, and then come and present your offering.”; 23:18-20 “And, "Whoever swears by the altar, that is nothing, but whoever swears by the offering on it, he is obligated. You blind men, which is more important, the offering, or the altar that sanctifies the offering? Therefore, whoever swears by the altar, swears both by the altar and by everything on it.”
The altar is like our heart consuming (doer of) the offering (Word of Life) on it. Every offering on the altar/heart (temple of Holy Spirit) is the Word of cleanness accepted only to YHWH. Without the altar [doer], there is nothing for the offering (Word of Life), nor there is for the altar [doer] without the offering [hearer]. Rom. 2:3 “for it is not the hearers of the Law who are just before Elohim, but the doers of the Law will be justified.” 1 Sam 16:7 “But YHWH said to Shmuel, Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him; for Elohim sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but YHWH looks at the heart.”; 2 Cor. 3:2-3 “You are our letter, written in our hearts, known and read by all men; being manifested that you are a letter of haMashiyach, cared for by us, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living Elohim, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.”
The altar is illuminated as the heart of purity where the works are daily consumed in the fire. No fleshly minded can modify his own heart to perfection after his self-righteous words are spoken out of his mouth. Only the Spirit minded get his heart sanctified by His Word of purity in order to become His servants of perfection, for His Spirit is the guider of all words of wisdom given from the Kingdom of Life.
1 Sam. 2:28 “Did I not choose them from all the tribes of Israel to be My priests, to go up to My altar, to burn incense, to carry an ephod before Me; and did I not give to the house of your father all the fire offerings of the sons of Yisrael?”
Luke 3:16 “Yahuchanan answered and said to them all, “As for me, I baptize you with water; but One is coming who is mightier than I, and I am not fit to untie the thong of His sandals; He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.”; 1 Cor. 3:12-15 “Now if any man builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each man's work will become evident; for the day will show it because it is to be revealed with fire, and the fire itself will test the quality of each man's work. If any man's work which he has built on it remains, he will receive a reward. If any man's work is burned up, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.”; 1 Peter 1:7 “so that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Yahushua the Messiah.”
Our spiritual works shall be tested by fire when offered to YHWH whether they are valued to Him, for we are the living sacrifices to Him when in purity. Rom. 12:1 “Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of Elohim, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to Elohim, which is your spiritual service of worship.”
To burn a fire-offering unto YHWH:
The fire-offering (the consummation) is the work of purification in the spiritual life in those who are with the Holy Spirit dwelling in their temples as the fire is the work of purifying all the works performed daily from all the works of filthiness.
All statutes come out of His Law of Life are known the difference between what is right and what is wrong. All statutes are taught to us to perceive what is all about His Kingdom of purity comparing to what is all about the kingdom of impurity where there are many works of lawlessness that cannot be put together in one unity, because the works of lawlessness are in opposition to what the works of His Law that can be put in one unity.
It shall be to them a statute forever:
This eternal law of purification for them who believe in His Word of purity that lives in the perfection of their lives as they obey all His Torah that frees them from all the works of wickedness.
His Seed is the Word of Life planted in our hearts, for He is His chosen one (Yahushua the Messiah). There are no other seeds of the fleshly minded that can be holy as His seed of holiness, therefore we, the Spirit minded, must start with His seed of purification in our hearts to live in His eternal Kingdom.
To him and his seed throughout their generations:
To the One giving us His Word (seed) through all our ages, we follow His Law where His Word is penned in our hearts after our repentance and purification from all our works of wickedness.
On Cohanim (priests) washing hands & feet before entering Temple (P24):
Rev. 1:6 “and He has made us to be a kingdom, priests to His Eloheyu and Father to Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever.”
We, the consecrated priests chosen to His kingdom once our hands (doers) and feet (followers) of our Messiah who wash His blood in us in order to receive the spiritual gift of ministry to all in this world.
Mitzvah P25: Exodus 27:21 - On kindling the Menorah (lamp) by the Cohanim (priests)
v.20-21 “And thou shalt command the children of Yisrael, that they take unto thee pure olive oil, beaten for the light, to cause a lamp to burn continually. In the tent of meeting, without the veil which is before the testimony, Aharon and his sons shall set it in order (to burn) from evening to morning before YHWH; (it shall be) a statute for ever throughout their generations on behalf of the children of Yisrael.”
Thou shalt command the children of Yisrael:
As He commands of us, we obey His Word that is a blessing to our spiritual life.
Lev. 2:15 “And thou shall put oil upon it, and lay frankincense thereon: it is a meat-offering.”; 6:15 “And he shall take of it his handful, of the flour of the meat offering, and of the oil thereof, and all the frankincense which is upon the meat offering, and shall burn it upon the altar for a sweet savour, even the memorial of it, unto YHWH.”; Ps. 23:5 “...thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.”; 45:7 “...anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.”; 89:20 “with my holy oil have I anoint him.”; 104:15 “And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and brad which strengtheneth man’s heart.”; 141:5; Pr 21:17, 20 “He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man: he that loveth wine and oil shall not be rich....There is treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise; but a foolish man spendeth it up.”
Matt. 25:1-13 speaks of the wise with the oil while the foolish emptied; Heb. 1:9; James 5:14 “...let them pray over him with oil in the name of YHWH.”; Rev. 6:6 “...and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.”
The anointing oil is the Holy Spirit dwelling in the heart of the repentant and the wine is the blood of Yahushua washing away the iniquity of those who believe in Him. You, the believer in YHWH, are the meat offering consumed in the fire to separate from the works of death.
The one log of oil is Holy Spirit pouring into the heart (altar).
As Yahushua the Messiah is the Light, we are the followers of His Light, for we see all things in His Kingdom of Light. Those who dwell in the kingdom of darkness, they cannot see all the things in darkness that stumble in the works of blindness and wickedness. The works of Light are the comfort and peace knowing that we are the doers of His Light.
Pure olive oil:
It is the Holy Spirit that keep us live in His Light consumed in it once we are sanctified and anointed by His Spirit (pure olive oil).
They take unto thee pure olive oil:
They (the Word and its instructions) bring us to the purification and anointment of Holy Spirit (pure olive oil), for the Word is our Messiah and His instructions to us about the ministry of His Kingdom of Light to all who are abide in the kingdoms of darkness that they may see the Light in us.
The Lamp is the Temple where the Holy Spirit dwells in you, for the Word is the consummation of the anointed oil eternally.
Beaten for the light:
The Light (Word) is consumed (beaten) in the anointed oil (Holy Spirit) dwelling in our hearts.
Ex. 26:31 “You shall make a veil of blue and purple and scarlet material and fine twisted linen; it shall be made with cherubim, the work of a skillful workman.”; 36:35 “Moreover, he made the veil of blue and purple and scarlet material, and fine twisted linen; he made it with cherubim, the work of a skillful workman.”; 2 Chr. 3:14 “He made the veil of violet, purple, crimson and fine linen, and he worked cherubim on it.”
Matt. 27:52 “The tombs were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised.”; Heb. 6:19-20 “This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and one which enters within the veil, where Yahushua has entered as a forerunner for us, having become a high priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.”; 10:19-21 “Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Yahushua, by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of Elohim.”
The veil is guarded against the works of unholiness from where the Holy Spirit dwells in your heart.
Pure olive oil, beaten for a light:
Le. 24:2 “Command the children of Yisrael, that they bring unto thee pure oil olive beaten for the light, to cause the lamps to burn continually.”
The Holy Spirit is filled in the heart as the oil anointing and the light is the Word of Light.
The Testimony of Light contains all our acts according to the words of wisdom thru the Holy Spirit speaking to us, for His Law is written in our hearts, so this testimony is for all those who seek the repentance and purification of their corrupted hearts to be His called ones to serve Him in perfection.
Aharon and his sons shall set it in order to burn from evening to morning before YHWH:
The mind (Word) and its instructions are set in our hearts after its purification upon our repentance so that the Word of Light can be consumed in our anointed oil (Holy Spirit) in our temples/hearts.
Cause a lamp to burn continually:
Ps. 18:28 “For thou will light my candle: YHWH my Elohim will enlighten my darkness.”; Pr. 20:27 “The spirit of man is the candle of YHWH, searching all the inward parts of the belly.”
Matt. 5:14-16 “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”; Rev. 1:12-13 “...I saw seven golden candlesticks; and in the midst of the seven candlsticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment...”; 2:5 “...I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick (Temple of Holy Spirit) out of his place (heart), except thou repent.”
Let the Holy Spirit, our lamp, in our hearts be seen by others knowing that we do the works of Light.
Without the veil which is before the testimony (new covenant/ agreement):
Ruth 3:15 “..Bring the vail that thou hast upon thee, and hold it...”; 1 Sam 3:3 “...the lamp of Elohim went out in the temple of YHWH, where the ark of Elohim was..”; 2 Chr 3:14 “And he made the vail of blue..”
Matt. 27:51 “And behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom...”; 2 Cor. 3:12-18 “...And not as Moshe, which put a vail over his face, that the children of Yisrael could not stedfast look to the end of that which is abolished but their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done way in Messiah. But even unto this day, when Moshe is read, the vail is upon their heart. Nevertheless when it shall turn to YHWH, the vail shall be taken away. Now YHWH is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of YHWH is, there is liberty...”; Heb. 6:18-20 “...both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Yahushua an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedek.”; 10:20-21 “By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; and having an high priest over the house of Elohim”
The Holy of Holies is no longer to dwell in the fleshly temple surrounded by the veil which was rent in the twain from the top to the bottom after the death of the Lamb, but in the day of Shavuot the followers of our Messiah (Acts 2) received the Holy Spirit into their spiritual hearts/temples to dwell.
Removing the veil of temple:
The removing of the veil of temple is illuminated as a repentance of old temple (heart of self-righteousness [idolatry]). Only the repentant heart can enter into the Temple of Holy Spirit to dwell in the Kingdom of YHWH. 2 Cor. 5:17 “...if any man be in Messiah, he is a new creature (Temple of Messiah): old things (works of temple of idolatry) are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” Throw old things out of our hearts (works of flesh) into the fire (bottomless pit) which are unreachable for ever.
On kindling the Menorah (lamp) by the Cohanim (priests) (P25):
Our Messiah the High priest is the first to kindle (start) the Word of Light on the anointed oil (Holy Spirit) that dwells in the lamp (heart/temple), then we become the priests to His Kingdom of Light and do the same to those who want the Word of Light in their hearts.
Mitzvah P26: Numbers 6:23 - On Cohanim (priests) blessing Yisrael
v.22-27 “And YHWH spoke unto Moshe, saying: Speak unto Aharon and unto his sons, saying: on this wise ye shall bless the children of Yisrael; saying unto them: YHWH bless thee, and keep thee; YHWH make His face to shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee; YHWH lift up His countenance unto thee, and give thee peace. And they shall put My name upon the children of Yisrael, and I will bless them.”
Moshe is illuminated as the Lawgiver thru the Kingdom (mountain) of YHWH to those who want to serve YHWH in the Law of Life. Moshe (#4872) means the drawing out of the water (rescued), in other words, we, all the fleshly minded are drawn out of the water (kingdom of darkness/womb) by His Spirit of Life at the time of our spiritual birth upon our repentance/reversal to see His Light.
Speak unto Aharon and his sons:
The Word of Light and its instructions are spoken to us by the Heavenly Father thru His Spirit (anointed oil) dwelling in us.
On this wise ye shall bless the children of Yisrael:
The words of wisdom whom the children of Yisrael (servants of El) do according to them will bring the blessings of their performance of His command.
Lev. 9:22 “Then Aharon lifted up his hands toward the people and blessed them, and he stepped down after making the sin offering and the burnt offering and the peace offerings.”; Josh. 22:6 “So Yahushua blessed them and sent them away, and they went to their tents.”; 2 Sam. 6:18 “When David had finished offering the burnt offering and the peace offering, he blessed the people in the name of YHWH of hosts.”; 1 King 8:55 “And he stood and blessed all the assembly of Israel with a loud voice...”; 1 Chr. 16:2 “When David had finished offering the burnt offering and the peace offerings, he blessed the people in the name of YHWH.”
The benedictions are for those who faithfully do His commandments as they go higher in the level of the spiritual maturity.
Gen. 28:15 “...I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goes, and bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.”; Ps 34:20 “He keepeth all his bones; not one of them is broken.”; 121:4-5 “Behold, he that keepeth Yisrael shall neither slumber nor sleep. YHWH is thy keeper: YHWH is thy shade upon thy right hand.”
John 17:11-12 “And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are...”; Ph. 4:7 “And the peace of Elohim, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Messiah Yahushua.”; 2 Th. 3:3 “And YHWH is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.” ; 1 Pet 1:3-5 “Blessed be the Elohim and Father of our Rabbi Yahushua Messiah...reserved in heaven for you, who are kept by the power of Elohim through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time”; Rev. 3:10 “...thou hast kept the word of patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.”
If you keep His commandments in sincerity and truth, He will keep you free from all the sickness and temptation of the devils.
Ps. 21:6 “For thou has made him most blessed for ever: thou hast made him exceeding glad with thy countenance.”; 31:16 “Make thy face to shine upon thy servant: save me for thy mercies’ sake.”; 67:1 “Elohim be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause his face to shine upon us; Selah.”; 119:135 “Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; and teach me thy statutes.”; Isa. 33:2 “O YHWH, be gracious unto me; we have waited for thee: be thou their arm every morning, our salvation also in the time of trouble.”; Dan. 9:17 “Now therefore, O our Elohim, hear the prayer of thy servant, and his supplications, and cause thy face to shine upon thy sanctuary, that is desolate, for YHWH’s sake.”
Acts 2:28 “Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.”
His favor is toward those who do well in His commandments.
Ps. 4:8 “I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, YHWH, only makest me dwell in safety.”
Luke 1:78-79 “Through the tender mercy of our Elohim; whereby the day-spring from on high hath visited us, to give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.”; 2:13-14 “...Glory to Elohim in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.”; Rom. 8:6 “For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”; 14:17 “For the kingdom of Elohim is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.”; Gal 1:3 “Grace be to you and peace from Elohim the Father, and from our Rabbi Yahushua Messiah.”; 5:22-23 “...the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance...”; 2 Th. 3:16 “Now YHWH of peace himself give you peace always by all means. YHWH be with you all.”
Peace only dwells in the hearts of purity who do the commandments of YHWH faithfully.
His fearful Name:
Deut 28:10 “And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of YHWH; and they shall be afraid of thee.”; 2 Chr. 7:14 “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sins, and will heal their land.”
Let His Name be fearful in all generations eternally.
Is. 9:6-7 “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the mighty Elohim, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace...”
Luke 1:31 “...thou hast found favour with Elohim.”; John 1:14 “..the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory...”; 1 Tim. 3:16; Heb 2:14; 1 John 4:2; 2 John 7
We, the spiritual minded, are the spiritually adopted by YHWH to be His people. Rom. 8:15-17 “For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, Abba! Father! The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of Elohim, and if children, heirs also, heirs of Elohim and fellow heirs with haMashiyach, if indeed we suffer with Him so that we may also be glorified with Him.”
YHWH blesses thee:
YHWH blesses those who do His will in all His laws as He sees their hearts for their deeds of righteousness.
YHWH keeps thee:
YHWH keeps those who do His will faithfully in all what is commanded of them and follow His path of righteousness.
His face is full Light to those who do the Law of His Light, because He is pleased with their works of Light. Those who hide from His Light are not shone by His face, for He is not pleased of their works of darkness.
YHWH makes His face to shine upon thee:
YHWH makes His Light (face) to shine upon those who do the works of Light.
YHWH be gracious unto thee:
YHWH is gracious to those who do their deeds of Light faithfully.
His countenance is known by the fruits of our lives whether we obey His Law or not. If we do well in His law of Life, His countenance is full of pleasure, but if we do not do what is commanded in obeying His Law, His countenance would be displeased so that He would punish us of any lawless deed measured back to us.
YHWH lifts up His countenance unto thee:
YHWH lifts up His countenance to those who do well in His law of Life as His countenance shows pleasure in their works in order to give them blessings for their good deeds measured to them.
YHWH gives thee peace:
YHWH gives His servants peace as long as they do the works of His righteousness that produce more peace in their spiritual lives.
His name (YHWH in Hebrew letters) is defined as the Eternal cycle of Life given to those who do the same cycle of their faithfulness in serving Him by keeping His Law of Life.
They shall put My name upon the children of Yisrael:
His Word and instructions put His eternal name in the hearts of His servants of El so that His servants become faithful in His Law that builds on His name/foundation of eternal Life.
I will bless them:
YHWH starts His blessings by His name placed in the hearts of His servants who seek the words of wisdom once they are sanctified to separate themselves from the workers of lawlessness.
On Cohanim (priests) blessing Yisrael (P26):
As our Messiah Yahushua the high priest begins to bless His servants after His sanctification in their hearts, then we, His servants, do the same to those who are hungry for His Word of Life and seek to receive the spiritual guidance.
Mitzvah P27: Exodus 25:30 - On the Shewbread before the Ark
v.30 “And thou shalt set upon the table showbread before Me always.”
Ex. 25:23 “You shall make a table of acacia wood, two cubits long and one cubit wide and one and a half cubits high.”; 31:8 “the table also and its utensils, and the pure gold lampstand with all its utensils, and the altar of incense.”; 37:10 “Then he made the table of acacia wood, two cubits long and a cubit wide and one and a half cubits high.”; 40:22 “Then he put the table in the tent of meeting on the north side of the tabernacle, outside the veil.”; Num. 3:31 “Then he put the table in the tent of meeting on the north side of the tabernacle, outside the veil.”; 2 Chr. 13:11 “Every morning and evening they burn to YHWH burnt offerings and fragrant incense, and the showbread is set on the clean table, and the golden lampstand with its lamps is ready to light every evening; for we keep the charge of YHWH our Eloheynu, but you have forsaken Him.”
Heb. 9:2 “For there was a tabernacle prepared, the outer one, in which were the lampstand and the table and the sacred bread; this is called the holy place.”
We, the children of Righteousness, sit at the table of YHWH to eat the living Bread (to listen to His word).
Ex. 25:30 “You shall set the bread of the Presence on the table before Me at all times.”; Lev. 24:5 Then you shall take fine flour and bake twelve cakes with it; two-tenths of an ephah shall be in each cake.”; Num. 4:7 “Over the table of the bread of the Presence they shall also spread a cloth of blue and put on it the dishes and the pans and the sacrificial bowls and the jars for the drink offering, and the continual bread shall be on it.”; 1 Sam. 21:6 “So the priest gave him consecrated bread; for there was no bread there but the bread of the Presence which was removed from before YHWH, in order to put hot bread in its place when it was taken away.”; 1 Chr. 9:32 “Some of their relatives of the sons of the Kohathites were over the showbread to prepare it every Shabbat.”; Neh. 10:33 “for the showbread, for the continual grain offering, for the continual burnt offering, the Shabbats, the new moon, for the appointed times, for the holy things and for the sin offerings to make atonement for Israel, and all the work of the house of our Eloheynu.”
Matt. 12:4 “how he entered the house of Elohim, and they ate the consecrated bread, which was not lawful for him to eat nor for those with him, but for the priests alone?”; Heb. 9:2 “For there was a tabernacle prepared, the outer one, in which were the lampstand and the table and the sacred bread; this is called the holy place.”
We are to eat the Living Bread (His shewbread) on the table of righteousness.
Set upon the table:
Ex. 40:22-23 “And he put the table in the tent of the congregation, upon the side of the tabernacle northward, without the vail. And he set the bread in order upon it before YHWH; as YHWH had commanded Moshe.”; Num. 3:29-31 “The families of the sons of Kohath....their charge shall be the ark, and the table, and the candlestick...”; 2 Chr. 13:11 “...the shewbread also set they in order upon the pure table...”
Heb. 9:2 “...the table, and the shewbread; which is called the sanctuary.”
The (sanctuary) table of our heart is set up with the shewbread (The Word) written and the candlestick (Temple of Holy Spirit dwelling in heart) continually.
Shewbread before Me:
Lev. 24:5-6 “And thou shalt take fine flour, and bake twelve cakes thereof: two tenth deals shall be in one cake. And thou shalt set them in two rows, six on a row, upon the pure table before YHWH.”; Num. 4:7-8 “And upon the table of shewbread they shall spread a cloth of blue...and the continual bread shall be thereon...”; 1 Sam. 21:1-6 speaks of David given the hallowed bread (shewbread); 1 Chr. 9:32 “..the sons of Kohathites, were over the shewbread, to prepare it every Shabbat.”; Neh. 10:33 “For the shewbread, and for the continual burnt offering, of the Shabbats, of the Chodeshim, for the set feasts...”
Matt. 12:3-4 “...when he (David) was a hungred,...he entered into the house of Elohim, and did eat the shewbread...”
The Showbread is the Word of Life on the table of our heart written.
Thou shalt set upon the table shewbread before Me always:
He shall set upon the table of sanctuary (heart) on those who keep His commandments, where the Word (showbread) is given to them who believe in His righteousness.
Breaking of the Bread:
Matt. 14:19 “..brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.”; Luke 24:30 “..he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them.”; Acts 2:42; 20:11; 27:35.
The Word (Bread) of Life is given to all who are hungry to eat and live eternally.
Strength of Bread (Word):
Ps. 104:15 “...bread which strengtheneth man’s heart.”
Matt. 6:11 “Give us this day our daily bread.”
Our daily bread is to pray, mediate, study, do His Word continually.
Profanation of Bread (Word):
Eze. 5:16-17 “...I will send to destroy you: and I will increase the famine upon you, and will break your staff of bread...”
Matt. 7:9 “Or what man is there of you, whom is his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?”; Matt. 5:33-37 “...let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay; for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.”
Those who believe His Word and do not perform it are the profaners of His Word.
Unleavened Bread vs. Leavened Bread:
1 Cor. 5:6-8 “Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Messiah our passover is sacrificed for us: Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.”
We are the children of Unleavened Bread to eat His Bread of Life in sincerity and truth but those who are the children of Leavened Bread eat the bread (do the words) of malice and wickedness.
Ps. 23:5-6 “Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies...”; Prov. 3:3 “Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of Elohim and man.”; 7:1-3 “...Bind them (commandments) upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart.”
Luke 22:29-30 “...my Father hath appointed unto me; that ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Yisrael.”
The Bread of Life is on the table of our hearts to eat eternally as it is written in our heart to obey YHWH eternally.
Table of wickedness:
Rom. 11:9-12 “And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a recompence unto them...”
1 Cor. 10:21 “Ye cannot drink the cup of YHWH, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of YHWH’s table, and of the table of devils.”
You cannot do the Word of holiness and the word of wickedness for they are in the opposition of the forces, otherwise you would be a lukewarm (Rev. 3:16). No one can serve two masters (Matt. 6:24)!
On the Shewbread before the Ark (P27):
The shewbread (Word) is always before the Ark (hearts of those who keep His Law of Life).
Mitzvah P28: Exodus 30:7 - On Burning the Incense on the Golden Altar twice daily
v.7 “And Aharon shall burn thereon incense of (sweet) spices; every morning, when he dresseth the lamps, he shall burn it. And when Aharon lighteth the lamps at dusk, he shall burn it, a perpetual incense before YHWH throughout your generations.”
Ex. 30:1 “Moreover, you shall make an altar as a place for burning incense; you shall make it of acacia wood.”; 7 “Aharon shall burn fragrant incense on it; he shall burn it every morning when he trims the lamps.”; Lev. 10:1 “Now Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aharon, took their respective firepans, and after putting fire in them, placed incense on it and offered strange fire before YHWH, which He had not commanded them.”; Num. 16:35 “Fire also came forth from YHWH and consumed the two hundred and fifty men who were offering the incense.”; 46 “Moshe said to Aharon, Take your censer and put in it fire from the altar, and lay incense on it; then bring it quickly to the congregation and make atonement for them, for wrath has gone forth from YHWH, the plague has begun!”; Eze. 8:11 “Standing in front of them were seventy elders of the house of Israel, with Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan standing among them, each man with his censer in his hand and the fragrance of the cloud of incense rising.”; Mal. 1:11 “For from the rising of the sun even to its setting, My name will be great among the nations, and in every place incense is going to be offered to My name, and a grain offering that is pure; for My name will be great among the nations, says YHWH of hosts.”
Luke 1:10 “And the whole multitude of the people were in prayer outside at the hour of the incense offering.”; Rev. 8:3 “Another angel came and stood at the altar, holding a golden censer; and much incense was given to him, so that he might add it to the prayers of all the saints on the golden altar which was before the throne.”
The incense burnt is our prayers coming up to the heaven to request YHWH for the words of wisdom to mediate and to do.
Eze. 8:11 “...every man his censer in his hand; and a thick cloud of incense went up.”; Ps. 141:2 “Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.”; “Mal 1:11 “For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same my name shall be great among the Gentiles; and in every place incense shall be offered unto my name, and a pure offering: for my name shall be great among the heathen, saith YHWH of hosts...”
Luke 1:10 “And there appeared unto him an angel of YHWH standing on the right side of the altar of incense.”; Rev. 8:3-5 “And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of saints, ascended up before Elohim out of the angel’s hand....”
The sweet incense is the prayer of the heart of purity that is only accepted pleasure in the sight of YHWH in order to give the answer, for the baptism of Holy Spirit and fire is to purge the repentant heart. Matt. 21:22 “And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.”
Aharon shall burn thereon incense of (sweet) spices:
The mind (Word) shall burn what is offered (our works of purity) that is acceptable in the result of His sweetness to smell so that His pleasure is shown in their spiritual lives.
When he dresseth the lamps:
He (the Word) dresses (performs) the lamp (heart) of those who have the Holy Spirit (anointed oil) consumed in His Word of Light.
Every morning he shall burn it:
The beginning (morning) of His Word is to burn on the anointed oil (Holy Spirit) to perform what is commanded of His Word in those who seek the level of their spiritual growth daily, for the evening (end) of the completion of their performance is from the beginning to give them the spiritual understanding before the next level (day) comes.
Evening (end of light activity - harvest time) and morning (beginning of light activity - planting time):
The purification is the light activity to end the works of uncleanness at the evening.
The teaching of Torah Light is to learn/hear at the beginning (morning) of spiritual conception planted in our hearts when seeking the spiritual understanding of the Law, and to understand fully of it at the end (evening) of spiritual maturity thru the prayers and mediations to increase to the next level of understanding. It is a spiritual food to eat (hear the word) and to digest (mediate/study or do the word) in order to understand the spiritual values of the Law. Matt. 6:33 “...seek first His kingdom and His righteousness: and all these things shall be added to you.”; 7:7-12 “Ask, and it shall be given to you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened to you....” Dusk is the end of the Light where all the flesh minded are to be buried so that they can be raised in the Light (morning). We first must put away our fleshly works at the end (dusk) in order that we receive the purification in the beginning of Life (morning) with the baptism of Holy Spirit.
When Aharon lighteth the lamps at dusk:
The mind (Word) continues to light the temples (hearts) of those who seek their protection from the works of darkness while doing the mediation of His words given to them during the rest time from their daily works.
He shall burn it, a perpetual incense before YHWH throughout your generations:
He/Yahushua the Messiah (the Word) shall burn what is offered (works of righteousness) as it is eternal incense (pleasure in His eyes) in all the ages of eternity.
Strange offerings on incense:
Lev. 10:1-3 “And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aharon, took either of them his censer, and put fire therein, and put incense thereon, and offered strange fire before YHWH, which he commanded them not...”; Num 16:35 “And there came out a fire from YHWH, and consumed the two hundred and fifty men that offered incense.” v46 “..Take a censor, and put fire therein from off the altar, and put on incense, and go quickly unto the congregation, and make an atonement for them: for there is wrath gone out from YHWH; the plague is begun.”; Prov. 28:9-10 “He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination....”
Matt. 21:13 “...It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.”
Strange fire: lawless or hypocritical prayer of unrepentant ones bringing plaques/punishments on them who do the oppositions of His commandments or their traditions of men, for they are greed in their fleshly powers.
Refrain the strange teachings and obey His pure teachings:
Isa. 1:13-15 “Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the Chodeshim and Shabbats, the calling of assemblies, I can not away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting....” vss 16-19 “ Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil; Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the wodow....If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land.”
The abominable incense is the hypocritical prayer of the proud in the heart (uncircumcision).
Pillar of cloud by day, pillar of fire by night:
Ex. 13:21-22: “And YHWH went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night: He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night, from before the people.”; 14:20 “it was a cloud of darkness to them (Egyptians), but it gave light by night to these (Israelites): so that the one came not near the other all the night”; Ps. 99:7 “He spake unto them in the cloudy pillar: they kept his testimonies, and the ordinance that he gave them.”
1 Tim. 3:15-16 “...thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of Elohim, which is the assembly of the living Elohim, the pillar and ground of the truth...”; Rev 3:12 “Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my Elohim, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my Elohim, and the name of the city of my Elohim, which is new Yahrushaliem, which cometh down out of heaven from my Elohim: and I will write upon him my new name.”
The pillars of YHWH are the works of Holy Spirit given to those who obey and do His word. The pillar of cloud is to lead you to the way of Light while the pillar of fire is to purge the works of darkness out of the heart of repentant one. 2 Cor. 5:17 “...if any man be in Messiah, he is a new creature (Censor of Holy Spirit dwelling in): old things (works of strange fire/idolatry) are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” Throw old things out of our hearts (works of flesh) into the fire.
Baptism of Holy Spirit (pillar of cloud) and (pillar of) fire:
Luke 3:16-17 “...he shall baptise you with the Holy Spirit and with fire: whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and will gather the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.”; Luke 13:49-51 “I have come to cast fire upon the earth; and how I wish it were already kindled!”; Heb. 12:29 “For our Elohim is a consuming fire.”; 1 Cor. 3:11-15 “...Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. If any man’s work abide which hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.”
We are baptized in the Name of YHWH to receive the Holy Spirit (above, the cloud) and our works consumed in the fire.
He will baptize you with Holy Spirit and fire:
Matt. 3:10-11 "The axe is already laid at the root of the trees; therefore every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. As for me, I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I am not fit to remove His sandals; He will baptize you with Ruach haKodesh and fire."
Every tree of mortality must be cut in which means that every one must repent out of the kingdom of mortality/death to be His sanctified servant in His Kingdom of Life. His baptism of your spiritual body (soul) is in His Spirit of holiness to His Kingdom of eternal Life and your fleshly body is in fire (judgment of lawlessness to the kingdom of death).
Continual burnt incenses:
The eternal cycle of the Light contains both of “I am the first/beginning” and “the last/end.” where they meet. Burning the incense at the morning (beginning of Light) and at the evening (end of Light) where the beginning and the end never separate.
On Burning the Incense on the Golden Altar twice daily (P28):
His Word of purity is constantly burned to examine what is offered (our works of His righteousness) in our hearts (altars) from the beginning of what (His Word of Light/day) is commanded of us to the end result of our performance according to His Word of Life during the trials of our spiritual lives.
