TEXT: Leviticus 15:1-18 (KJV)
1 And the Lord spake unto Moses and to Aaron, saying,
2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When any man hath a running issue out of his flesh, because of his issue he is unclean.
3 And this shall be his uncleanness in his issue: whether his flesh run with his issue, or his flesh be stopped from his issue, it is his uncleanness.
4 Every bed, whereon he lieth that hath the issue, is unclean: and every thing, whereon he sitteth, shall be unclean.
5 And whosoever toucheth his bed shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even.
6 And he that sitteth on any thing whereon he sat that hath the issue shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even.
7 And he that toucheth the flesh of him that hath the issue shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even.
8 And if he that hath the issue spit upon him that is clean; then he shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even.
9 And what saddle soever he rideth upon that hath the issue shall be unclean.
10 And whosoever toucheth any thing that was under him shall be unclean until the even: and he that beareth any of those things shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even.
11 And whomsoever he toucheth that hath the issue, and hath not rinsed his hands in water, he shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even.
12 And the vessel of earth, that he toucheth which hath the issue, shall be broken: and every vessel of wood shall be rinsed in water.
13 And when he that hath an issue is cleansed of his issue; then he shall number to himself seven days for his cleansing, and wash his clothes, and bathe his flesh in running water, and shall be clean.
14 And on the eighth day he shall take to him two turtledoves, or two young pigeons, and come before the Lord unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and give them unto the priest:
15 And the priest shall offer them, the one for a sin offering, and the other for a burnt offering; and the priest shall make an atonement for him before the Lord for his issue.
16 And if any man’s seed of copulation go out from him, then he shall wash all his flesh in water, and be unclean until the even.
17 And every garment, and every skin, whereon is the seed of copulation, shall be washed with water, and be unclean until the even.
18 The woman also with whom man shall lie with seed of copulation, they shall both bathe themselves in water, and be unclean until the even.
KEY VERSE: “And the priest shall offer them, the one for a sin offering, and the other for a burnt offering; and the priest shall make an atonement for him before the LORD for his issue.” – (Leviticus 15:15)
DCLM Daily Manna For Today MESSAGE:
God is holy. He also expects His people to be holy. The Scripture says, “as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation” (1 Peter 1:15).
In order to teach the Israelites the principle of avoiding defilement and impress upon them the serious requirement of holiness, God made use of situations and circumstances prevalent amongst them. They had to learn that whatever God says is bad and sinful must be avoided at all costs. They were required to observe specified rituals to avoid defilement in His sight. Just as physical defilement requires cleansing, spiritual defilement must be atoned for. Specific sacrifices requiring the death of animals were prescribed for the atonement of sins.
Sin defiles. The psalmist said, “Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me” (Psalm 51:5). This means that all men are born defiled and in need of cleansing. Just as God made provision for the atonement of sins for the Israelites through animal sacrifices, Christ’s death at Calvary is for the atonement of sins of the whole world.
All who come to God in repentance and faith will be cleansed from all sins. God is righteous and requires all who approach Him to be cleansed of spiritual defilement. Concealment of defilement leads to divine rejection. “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin” (1 John 1:7).
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Christ’s blood can cleanse the foulest stain.
