Biblical Concept: Leviticus Conclusion Verses
Consider the Tabernacle / Temple worship system with the Millennial Temple worship system.† Both eras are radical in their religious obligations.† Both eras were the start of a radical change in the methodology of Divine worship.† Both eras radically demonstrate the inability of human religion to approach Godís holy and righteous standards.† The Tabernacle / Temple era setup a stark contrast with the various pantheism of local nations.† The Millennial Temple era will set up a stark contrast to the Antichrist religion that will sweep the world during the time of the Great Tribulation. †Both Divinely instituted eras radically demonstrate the holy and righteous standards of The Triune God of the Bible.†
To go from the rigorous Tabernacle / Temple worship system to God permanently dwelling in the Christ-Believer is radical.† Careless approach of the veiled mercy seat of the Arc of Covenant resulted in physical death--radical.† Christ-Believers have God dwelling in them--radical.†
ĎGodís religious rules not manís.í† This is a key conclusion from Leviticus.† Almost every verse in Leviticus could have this as a verse title.

Leviticus 1:3-4 ††3 'If his offering is a burnt offering from the herd, he shall offer it, a male without defect; he shall offer it at the doorway of the tent of meeting, that he may be accepted before the LORD.† 4 'And he shall lay his hand on the head of the burnt offering, that it may be accepted for him to make atonement on his behalf.
Leviticus 4:1-3 †1 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,† 2 "Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, 'If a person sins unintentionally in any of the things which the LORD has commanded not to be done, and commits any of them,† 3 if the anointed priest sins so as to bring guilt on the people, then let him offer to the LORD a bull without defect as a sin offering for the sin he has committed.
Leviticus 4:13-20 ††13 'Now if the whole congregation of Israel commits error, and the matter escapes the notice of the assembly, and they commit any of the things which the LORD has commanded not to be done, and they become guilty;† 14 when the sin which they have committed becomes known, then the assembly shall offer a bull of the herd for a sin offering, and bring it before the tent of meeting.† 15 'Then the elders of the congregation shall lay their hands on the head of the bull before the LORD, and the bull shall be slain before the LORD.† 16 'Then the anointed priest is to bring some of the blood of the bull to the tent of meeting;† 17 and the priest shall dip his finger in the blood, and sprinkle it seven times before the LORD, in front of the veil.† 18 'And he shall put some of the blood on the horns of the altar which is before the LORD in the tent of meeting; and all the blood he shall pour out at the base of the altar of burnt offering which is at the doorway of the tent of meeting.† 19 'And he shall remove all its fat from it and offer it up in smoke on the altar.† 20 'He shall also do with the bull just as he did with the bull of the sin offering; thus he shall do with it. So the priest shall make atonement for them, and they shall be forgiven.
Leviticus 6:24-25 †24 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,† 25 "Speak to Aaron and to his sons, saying, 'This is the law of the sin offering: in the place where the burnt offering is slain the sin offering shall be slain before the LORD; it is most holy.
Leviticus 7:37-38 †37 This is the law of the burnt offering, the grain offering and the sin offering and the guilt offering and the ordination offering and the sacrifice of peace offerings,† 38 which the LORD commanded Moses at Mount Sinai in the day that He commanded the sons of Israel to present their offerings to the LORD in the wilderness of Sinai.
Leviticus 9:3-6 †3 "Then to the sons of Israel you shall speak, saying, 'Take a male goat for a sin offering, and a calf and a lamb, both one year old, without defect, for a burnt offering,† 4 and an ox and a ram for peace offerings, to sacrifice before the LORD, and a grain offering mixed with oil; for today the LORD shall appear to you.'"† 5 So they took what Moses had commanded to the front of the tent of meeting, and the whole congregation came near and stood before the LORD.† 6 And Moses said, "This is the thing which the LORD has commanded you to do, that the glory of the LORD may appear to you."
Leviticus 9:23-24 †23 And Moses and Aaron went into the tent of meeting. When they came out and blessed the people, the glory of the LORD appeared to all the people.† 24 Then fire came out from before the LORD and consumed the burnt offering and the portions of fat on the altar; and when all the people saw it, they shouted and fell on their faces.
Leviticus 10:1-3 †1 Now Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took their respective firepans, and after putting fire in them, placed incense on it and offered strange fire before the LORD, which He had not commanded them.† 2 And fire came out from the presence of the LORD and consumed them, and they died before the LORD.† 3 Then Moses said to Aaron, "It is what the LORD spoke, saying, 'By those who come near Me I will be treated as holy, And before all the people I will be honored.'" So Aaron, therefore, kept silent. (Godís religious rules not manís.)
Leviticus 10:8-11 ††8 The LORD then spoke to Aaron, saying,† 9 "Do not drink wine or strong drink, neither you nor your sons with you, when you come into the tent of meeting, so that you may not die-- it is a perpetual statute throughout your generations--† 10 and so as to make a distinction between the holy and the profane, and between the unclean and the clean,† 11 and so as to teach the sons of Israel all the statutes which the LORD has spoken to them through Moses." (Godís religious rules not manís.)
Leviticus 11:44-47 ††44 'For I am the LORD your God. Consecrate yourselves therefore, and be holy; for I am holy. And you shall not make yourselves unclean with any of the swarming things that swarm on the earth.† 45 'For I am the LORD, who brought you up from the land of Egypt, to be your God; thus you shall be holy for I am holy.'"† 46 This is the law regarding the animal, and the bird, and every living thing that moves in the waters, and everything that swarms on the earth,† 47 to make a distinction between the unclean and the clean, and between the edible creature and the creature which is not to be eaten. (Godís religious rules not manís.)
Leviticus 14:54-57 ††54 This is the law for any mark of leprosy-- even for a scale,† 55 and for the leprous garment or house,† 56 and for a swelling, and for a scab, and for a bright spot--† 57 to teach when they are unclean, and when they are clean. This is the law of leprosy.
Leviticus 15:31-33 ††31 "Thus you shall keep the sons of Israel separated from their uncleanness, lest they die in their uncleanness by their defiling My tabernacle that is among them."† 32 This is the law for the one with a discharge, and for the man who has a seminal emission so that he is unclean by it,† 33 and for the woman who is ill because of menstrual impurity, and for the one who has a discharge, whether a male or a female, or a man who lies with an unclean woman.
Leviticus 16:1-2 †1 Now the LORD spoke to Moses after the death of the two sons of Aaron, when they had approached the presence of the LORD and died.† 2 And the LORD said to Moses, "Tell your brother Aaron that he shall not enter at any time into the holy place inside the veil, before the mercy seat which is on the ark, lest he die; for I will appear in the cloud over the mercy seat. (Godís religious rules not manís.)
Leviticus 16:16 ††16 "And he shall make atonement for the holy place, because of the impurities of the sons of Israel, and because of their transgressions, in regard to all their sins; and thus he shall do for the tent of meeting which abides with them in the midst of their impurities.
Leviticus 16:29-34 ††29 "And this shall be a permanent statute for you: in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, you shall humble your souls, and not do any work, whether the native, or the alien who sojourns among you;† 30 for it is on this day that atonement shall be made for you to cleanse you; you shall be clean from all your sins before the LORD.† 31 "It is to be a sabbath of solemn rest for you, that you may humble your souls; it is a permanent statute.† 32 "So the priest who is anointed and ordained to serve as priest in his father's place shall make atonement: he shall thus put on the linen garments, the holy garments,† 33 and make atonement for the holy sanctuary; and he shall make atonement for the tent of meeting and for the altar. He shall also make atonement for the priests and for all the people of the assembly.† 34 "Now you shall have this as a permanent statute, to make atonement for the sons of Israel for all their sins once every year." And just as the LORD had commanded Moses, so he did.
Leviticus 17:1-7 †1 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,† 2 "Speak to Aaron and to his sons, and to all the sons of Israel, and say to them, 'This is what the LORD has commanded, saying,† 3 "Any man from the house of Israel who slaughters an ox, or a lamb, or a goat in the camp, or who slaughters it outside the camp,† 4 and has not brought it to the doorway of the tent of meeting to present it as an offering to the LORD before the tabernacle of the LORD, bloodguiltiness is to be reckoned to that man. He has shed blood and that man shall be cut off from among his people.† 5 "The reason is so that the sons of Israel may bring their sacrifices which they were sacrificing in the open field, that they may bring them in to the LORD, at the doorway of the tent of meeting to the priest, and sacrifice them as sacrifices of peace offerings to the LORD.† 6 "And the priest shall sprinkle the blood on the altar of the LORD at the doorway of the tent of meeting, and offer up the fat in smoke as a soothing aroma to the LORD.† 7 "And they shall no longer sacrifice their sacrifices to the goat demons with which they play the harlot. This shall be a permanent statute to them throughout their generations."' (Godís religious rules not manís.)

Leviticus 18:24-30 ††24 'Do not defile yourselves by any of these things; for by all these the nations which I am casting out before you have become defiled.† 25 'For the land has become defiled, therefore I have visited its punishment upon it, so the land has spewed out its inhabitants.† 26 'But as for you, you are to keep My statutes and My judgments, and shall not do any of these abominations, neither the native, nor the alien who sojourns among you† 27 (for the men of the land who have been before you have done all these abominations, and the land has become defiled);† 28 so that the land may not spew you out, should you defile it, as it has spewed out the nation which has been before you.† 29 'For whoever does any of these abominations, those persons who do so shall be cut off from among their people.† 30 'Thus you are to keep My charge, that you do not practice any of the abominable customs which have been practiced before you, so as not to defile yourselves with them; I am the LORD your God.'"
Leviticus 19:1-4 †1 Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,† 2 "Speak to all the congregation of the sons of Israel and say to them, 'You shall be holy, for I the LORD your God am holy.† 3 'Every one of you shall reverence his mother and his father, and you shall keep My sabbaths; I am the LORD your God.† 4 'Do not turn to idols or make for yourselves molten gods; I am the LORD your God.
