Parsha: Shmini, Leviticus 9:1 - 11:47, 2 Samuel 6:1 - 7:17, Acts 10:1-11:18

To our 9:00 am Shabbat Ark of Prayer and the Mishpacha within,

Lev 9:8-24

The account of Aaron’s sacrifices reflects the actual order in which the various sacrifices were offered to G-d by an individual. It also reflects the high level order of steps that are required to have a growing relationship with G-d and our loved ones.

A.   The sin offering was first, showing the priority of confession and cleansing from sin before G-d.

B.  Followed by the burnt or grain offering which represented the worshiper’s obedience in giving his or her life to G-d.

C.  And completed by the peace offering which was an expression of gratitude for a continuing walk with G-d.

The order of the sacrifices is also the necessary order to restore relationships between people and supports the process of sanctification, which are primary themes of the Bible.

Lev 10:8-11

Notice that Aaron was first told how to act, and then was told how to teach. This illustrates an important principle: Actions speak louder than words.

G-d calls us to live in a way that will, by example, reinforce what we teach to others. This is also why, even when there is no sin involved, appearances in our relationships and actions are important as well.

2 Samuel: 6

King David was bringing the Ark of the Covenant back to Jerusalem but failed to follow G-d’s specific instructions for transporting it. There were serious consequences for failing to honor G-d by not knowing and not following G-d’s instructions. (The Ark was captured by enemies, Uzzah was killed, David became angry and afraid thus cutting off G-d’s power in the kingdom and his life, his marriage to Michal was in trouble)

We are responsible for knowing what G-d desires of us; such knowledge will enable us to act according to his will. The Bible is our primary source for discovering God’s plan for healthy living.

How will this parsha impact your prayers this week and this Shabbat?

I look forward to hearing what G-d has shared with you this week and how we should pray for TAJ.

Your brother in Yeshua in the TEVA TEFILAH,

Kurt

Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?

My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due
to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?
