Leviticus (Program #30) – The Cleansing of the Leper (1) & (2)

The clear and proper understanding of Old Testament books such as Leviticus shows us pictures that portray graphically and vividly man’s true condition contaminated by sin and death.  Unclean from natural birth and leprous within and without.  This is surely man’s condition apart from God’s intervention but motivated by His great love and desire for man to be His eventual eternal counterpart. God does not leave us in such a condition.

Leviticus (Program #29) – Uncleanness Issuing From Within Man (2) & (3)

Leviticus like several books in the Bible mentions the ancient disease of leprosy.  Why was leprosy given such attention in God’s revelation to mankind.  Well, leprosy is associated with one of the basic factors of man’s sinful condition and that is rebellion.  Who among us is free from rebellion? Maybe not in dramatic outward demonstrations but within even in its own most subtle manifestations rebellion lurks perpetually beneath the surface of almost every person.

Leviticus (Program #28) – Uncleanness in Human Birth

What does it mean to be clean in the eyes of God?   Does it mean that our behaviour is proper and according to His principles?  Or does it mean that we get down on our knees and determine before Him to be a better person or even a better Christian?   Well the Bible says that regardless of our behaviour or our determination there is no way to be clean if the source of what we are offering Him is the natural life we were born with regardless of how good we may think it is.   So what is God’s view of us and all mankind in our natural life?  We will see today that the very source of all human life is depicted in this riveting account in chapters 11 and 12 of Leviticus.
