Wine? (Leviticus 10)

            “You are to distinguish between the holy and the common…” The children of the Lord would do well, by distancing themselves as far as possible from wine.  When we say “wine,” we are referring to any substance, situation or person that can affect our judgment in a negative way.…

God’s Glory (Leviticus 9)

            “…so that the glory of the Lord may appear to you.”             There is a wonderful reassuring promise from God: We will see His glory when we do his will and worship Him.  This should be our expectation when we engage in public or private worship; otherwise, worship becomes…

God’s Authority (Leviticus 8)

            “This is what the Lord has commanded to be done.” God has supreme and undisputed authority over the universe.  His commands are followed without question by angels and by every other creature, except for many humans.  Even his children sometimes dare to disobey Him!

To…

A Touch of Oil (Leviticus 2)

            “You shall add oil to it…”             I enjoy eating bread.  There are many varieties I like, such as Cuban, French, Italian, White Mountain, garlic, etc. I can eat these breads with or without butter, but my favorite additive is olive oil.             Olive oil (and a little touch…

Accepted (Leviticus 1)

            “…and it shall be acceptable…”             Heaven is a gift from God.  Those who want to live in heaven, must receive Jesus as Lord and Savior, and beg Him with repentance and true faith to enter into their hearts.  To be accepted by God however, is in my opinion at…
