It doesn’t matter how fancy we might dress ourselves up, we still answer to God. He is still in control of it all. We have to make ourselves worthy to Him.
1) If we are rooted in God, he will guide our foot steps.
2) God wanted Aaron,who ministers to him, to be decorated beautiful.
3) God is a God of beauty.
28: & vs. 38, 43. Obey God for sin resulted n death. Arron was a Levi priest who always wore the sins/iniquity of the ppl. On his forehead.
In chapters 27 & 28, God is instructing how the Ark of Covenant and the covering are to be made and the garments for Aaron and his sons with a variety of colorful stones, linen, intricate embroidery, coloful yarns and gold are to be made, can you imagine just how BEAUTIFUL HEAVEN MUST BE…OUR HEAVENLY HOME.
I continued my study via Leviticus 24-25. My takeaway, though, comes from 24:14. A peeve of mine in movies is hearing children cuss and hearing women “cuss like a sailor.” It’s a literal turn-off for me, no matter how good/funny the movie seems to be. Off the big-screen, though, hearing members of The Church choose to still use curse words [of any kind] has always bothered me even more. “Stop being lazy and use your words,” is my typical reaction. Same goes for members of The Church that become celebrities and choose to use profanity as a part of their profession. And, no, it doesn’t just “come with the territory.” Here in Leviticus 24, when the blueprint of “the territory” was being shared with God’s people, use of profanity was grounds for immediate stoning. Before today, I thought using profanity was only addressed in the New Testament. But here it is too. And, they would literally be stoned to death by everyone that heard them (24:10-16, 23). That’s how distasteful it was to God. And, even though we are in a better dispensation, and dealing with issues is no longer Leviticus 24:20ish but more Matthew 5:38-39ish, we are reminded that it’s still distasteful for God’s children to be using profanity even today (James 3:9-10).
