Leviticus 4-6/Ephesians 1-3
How to get the most out of Hungry Bible
5:16 They must then make restitution for whatever holy things they have defiled by paying for the loss, plus an added penalty of 20 percent. When they give their payments to the priest, he will make atonement for them with the ram sacrificed as a guilt offering, and they will be forgiven.
6:4-5 If they have sinned in any of these ways and are guilty, they must give back whatever they have taken by theft or extortion, whether a security deposit, or property entrusted to them, or a lost object that they claimed as their own, or anything gained by swearing falsely. When they realize their guilt, they must restore the principal amount plus a penalty of 20 percent to the person they have harmed.
1:19-23 I pray that you will begin to understand the incredible greatness of his power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else in this world or in the world to come. And God has put all things under the authority of Christ, and he gave him this authority for the benefit of the church. And the church is his body; it is filled by Christ, who fills everything everywhere with his presence.
2:12-13 In those days you were living apart from Christ. You were excluded from God’s people, Israel, and you did not know the promises God had made to them. You lived in this world without God and without hope. But now you belong to Christ Jesus. Though you once were far away from God, now you have been brought near to him because of the blood of Christ.
3:10 God’s purpose was to show his wisdom in all its rich variety to all the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms. They will see this when Jews and Gentiles are joined together in his church.
OT Flash Points
Priests’ sin brings guilt on the whole community
Guilt is applicable even when the sin is unintentional
The blood of the sacrifice makes atonement and authority for forgiveness
NT Flash Points
The Secret is disclosed – the types and symbols are revealed in Christ Jesus!
The atonement, the reconciliation, and creation of one new creature – His Body
The idea of partial “setting apart” or separation is an irrational and blasphemous concept
Those whose “love” is fickle and vacillating, by definition, presume upon God’s grace, deceived by their own lust that His grace is approval of their sin
They are fodder and fuel for the great Delusion, the Whore who sits on the Dragon feeding on the blood of the saints. [Revelation 17:1-3]
