  5. Mercy says:

    Praise the Lord for His Lamb to take away the sin of the whole world. This reminds me of Abraham bringing Isaac up into the mountain in the wilderness to sacrifice (as God called him to-what a test!). And Abraham obeyed, to only see a ram (a male lamb according to some sources) caught in the thicket with its horns. The provision for sacrifice was provided both before (Old Testament) and now. God’s ways are very similar in some instances. It’s a pattern. Sometimes people say the old laws don’t apply to us and why read it, but no no, it shows the thoughts of the Lord concerning things (sins, human’s ways, human’s tendencies, God’s tendencies). Nothing is new under the sun. If the Israelites offend God back then unknowingly (most sin offerings in Leviticus was for sin by ignorance), we can easily offend God now if we don’t learn their mistakes. Mistakes are forgiven, but the cost is still 40 years around same obstacles and no break-through. I love the Word of God for it describes exactly how wandering the human nature is, and how constant God is. A faithful shepherd. The sacrifice lamb. The loving Father longing for the prodigal children to return, waiting yet from afar to look if they return (repent), to run toward them to embrace& give them his ring (symbol of authority) and throw a celebration party. What a beautiful heart God has. I can just weep. I will praise Him as long as I live. May we lay our interests not in this world, but in the world that is to come. God is worth everything we leave behind to just have Him. Be blessed dear sisters.

    @Dorothy: praying for your sister (I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death. Hosea 13:14).

  6. Dorothy says:

    I have looked. I have sought. I have asked. I have knocked. I have opened my mind and my heart. I have let the Triune in and have never regretted it. I have hope, love, and faith because I have the Holy Spirit in me. BUT GOD…came to help me so many times. He has NEVER, EVER TURNED HIS BACK on me and I will try to never turn my back on Him.
    Sisters, my sister Carol has been diagnosed with emphysema and is having to wear oxygen; she doesn’t like this and thinks it makes her feel old. Please pray for her.
    Be blessed and come to God and Christ with all your needs sisters.

  9. Kristen says:

    We read Matthew 15 this week starting at verse 33. I looked up the Enduring Word commentary online and read. This chapter is about the Crucifixion of Jesus. Wow! Please look this up and read the commentary. May you be even more in awe of Him after! Praise to the Lamb of Gods that takes away of the sins of the world. He is worthy of all blessings and honor and glory! Amen!

  10. Rhonda J. says:

    Good morning She’s! Happy Saturday! I continue to feel so blessed, even through all the devastation if Ian. It does my heat good to ride in my bike offering cold water to all the people working all day on cleaning out their homes! So many stories and miracles, and sadness too! I wish I could share them all here. I just hope to point to Jesus through all of this! I have grabbed people and hugged them, listened with open ears, and grabbed their hands and prayed for them! What a blessing for me- thank you Jesus for working in me and growing me! Thank you for being THE lamb, that ended it all, fir us to THE a straight path to God the Father, and that the Holy Spirit can live and move in us!

  17. Searching says:

    Thankful to God making a way for us, to Christ for His sacrifice so that we can turn to Him and find the much needed forgiveness of our sins.

    JENNIFER LOVES JESUS – beautiful prayer yesterday, thank you
    GAYLE R – praying for Marie and her son
    LANIE HEFFERLY – nodding my head while reading your comment from yesterday. I practice that patience every day with my dear husband, a lot of shaking my head and doing what needs to be done.
    MARI V – praying your classes are going well
    LAUREN GW – thankful for a better week for you and your husband
    EILEEN DOWD – praying for your appetite
    JENNIFER ANAPOL – praying for patience with your dad
    RHONDA J -thank you for the update, praying for you and everyone affected. What a blessing to get a rental car! They have been scarce the past couple of years in many places.

    DOROTHY – yes, Jacob having 2 wives was sin (and having children with 2 servants) and there were consequences to be faced. Jacob himself was deceptive, as was his mother and his uncle (Leah & Rachel’s) father. And Leah was deceitful, going in to Jacob – how could she not know Jacob was working for Rachel? And Rachel, she stole her father’s idols – deceiving both him and Jacob about that. What a mess made by one lie after another. BUT, God’s plan cannot be stopped by our disobedience, as history has shown us time and again.

    Much easier to do things God’s way from the start – a lesson I need to remember!

  18. Maria Baer says:

    Amen. Wishing all my sisters a beautiful Saturday.

    Other Bible verses to meditate upon in light of what we have read so far in Leviticus.

    “O taste and see that Yahweh is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!”
    — ‭‭Psalms ‭34:8‬ ‭LSB‬‬

    “Bless Yahweh, O my soul, And all that is within me, bless His holy name. Bless Yahweh, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits; Who pardons all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases; Who redeems your life from the pit, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion; Who satisfies your years with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle. Yahweh is compassionate and gracious, Slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness. He will not always contend with us, And He will not keep His anger forever. He has not dealt with us according to our sins, And He has not rewarded us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, So great is His lovingkindness toward those who fear Him. As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us. As a father has compassion on his children, So Yahweh has compassion on those who fear Him.” — Psalm 103:1-5, 8-13‬ ‭LSB‬‬

    “In the year of King Uzziah’s death I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, with the train of His robe filling the temple. Seraphim stood above Him, each having six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one called out to another and said, ‘Holy, Holy, Holy, is Yahweh of hosts; The whole earth is full of His glory.’ And the foundations of the thresholds shook at the voice of him who called out, while the house of God was filling with smoke. Then I said, ‘Woe is me, for I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, And I live among a people of unclean lips; For my eyes have seen the King, Yahweh of hosts.’ Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a burning coal in his hand, which he had taken from the altar with tongs. And he touched my mouth with it and said, ‘Behold, this has touched your lips; and your iniquity is taken away, and your sin is atoned for.’” — Isaiah‬ ‭6:1-7‬ ‭LSB‬‬

    “Surely our griefs He Himself bore, And our sorrows He carried; Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, Smitten of God, and afflicted. But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our peace fell upon Him, And by His wounds we are healed. All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But Yahweh has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on Him. He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He did not open His mouth; Like a lamb that is led to slaughter, And like a sheep that is silent before its shearers, So He did not open His mouth. By oppression and judgment He was taken away; And as for His generation, who considered That He was cut off out of the land of the living, That for the transgression of my people, striking was due to Him? So His grave was assigned with wicked men, Yet He was with a rich man in His death, Because He had done no violence, Nor was there any deceit in His mouth. But Yahweh was pleased To crush Him, putting Him to grief; If You would place His soul as a guilt offering, He will see His seed, He will prolong His days, And the good pleasure of Yahweh will succeed in His hand. As a result of the anguish of His soul, He will see it and be satisfied; By His knowledge the Righteous One, My Servant, will justify the many, As He will bear their iniquities. Therefore, I will divide for Him a portion with the many, And He will divide the spoil with the strong; Because He poured out His soul to death, And was numbered with the transgressors; Yet He Himself bore the sin of many, And interceded for the transgressors.”
    ‭‭— Isaiah‬ ‭53:4-12‬ ‭LSB‬‬

    “‘Yet even now,’ declares Yahweh, ‘Return to Me with all your heart And with fasting, weeping, and wailing; And tear your heart and not your garments.’ Now return to Yahweh your God, For He is gracious and compassionate, Slow to anger, abounding in lovingkindness, And relenting concerning evil.” — ‭‭Joel‬ ‭2:12-13‬ ‭LSB‬‬

    “And He said to him, ‘“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.” This is the great and foremost commandment. And the second is like it, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” On these two commandments hang the whole Law and the Prophets.’” — Matthew‬ ‭22:37-40‬ ‭LSB‬‬

    “Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love. If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love; just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be complete. This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you.” — ‭‭John‬ ‭15:9-12‬ ‭LSB‬

    “Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have obtained our introduction by faith into this grace in which we stand; and we boast in hope of the glory of God.” — Romans‬ ‭5:1-2‬ ‭LSB‬‬

    “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only this, but we also boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.” — Romans‬ ‭5:8-11‬ ‭LSB‬‬

    “What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us? He who indeed did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him graciously give us all things? Who will bring a charge against God’s elect? God is the one who justifies; who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us. Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will affliction, or turmoil, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Just as it is written, ‘For Your sake we are being put to death all day long; We were counted as sheep for the slaughter.’ But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” — ‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:31-39‬ ‭LSB‬‬

    “He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” — ‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭5:21‬ ‭LSB‬‬

    “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. The one who does not love does not know God, because God is love. By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him. In this is love, not that we have loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.” — ‭‭1 John‬ ‭4:7-11‬ ‭LSB‬‬
