Leviticus 16:1 - 20:27

Amos 9:7-15, Ezekiel 20:2-20, 22:1-16


This Torah Portion is one of the most important sections of the book of Moses that we hardly ever really study. The statutes of our Father YHVH and the call to separation (holiness) is so clear in the structure of the chapters we will cover this week. But, the question is How do we humans can attain to the Holiness and perfection of YHVH? He says be Holy for I am Holy, but how can we become Holy like YHVH? I've had that question unanswered for over 25 years since the days I was a kid in the church system. Wow, The proper understanding of what holiness really means in context of the time frame in which the scriptures were written give us a greater perspective of what YHVH was referring to by the expression "BE HOLY FOR I AM HOLY".

    I am a teacher of Scriptures, Torah follower, and believer in Messiah Yeshua. I have been given the opportunity to share the Word of God with many believers around the world. My work as a servant of the Most High God has allowed me to be a voice to spread the good news of the New Testament, unveiling its truth through context and the obedience to the Almighty through his Torah.

    1. If we can no longer in Eqypt, slay the lamb and put the blood on our doorpost (threshold covenant); because Abba said “must bring offerings to the place He chooses” then we can no longer demand tithes and offerings for the same reason. No Temple, officiating priesthood, no cleansed altar. People can ask for donations of support; is that correct? Because we are to emulate Abba, we are to be generous, and give support to the minitry? Right?

      1. Shalom, sister, i agree, yes, the lack of a Temple makes some things impossible now. But the tithes were to go go the support of the priests znd lrvites. We can still give to those now, those who teach us & pray for us . So yes it is appropriate to donate. In my opinion we put priority on those whom Abbs ssys to: the poor, strsngers, widows, orphans. My opinion.

    2. Hi Rico, it was great to see you and meet you at Riverside in Durban. I really am pleased that I am able to make use of your website and read all the interesting teachings etc .. I am new in the Hebrew Roots Teachings and movement and do not understand everything yet. Bless you for your faithfullness and the effort you put in for us to learn the Torah .. Shalom! Ria

    3. Hello! I have a question: cuando usted habla de que ya no hay templo, se me viene a la mente lo de que nosotros somos el templo, ¿Como se aplica esto a las enseñanzas? soy nueva escuchando sus enseñanzas, y me cuesta un poco entender todo tan rápido…..Gracias por dedicar su tiempo a aprender para enseñarnos, Dios lo bendiga.

      I really love the way His word is so like a weave of fabric. The previous portions so connect with this one. And did not Aaron’s sons present a counterfeit in every way that caused them to perish??? Not just in conduct but maybe their hearts also, wanting to present a man made version of sacrifice, so where were their hearts alone in that matter. 2 goats also and from my understanding needed to be identical. So what can appear, right and just is just that an appearance and Abba wants purity and authentic worship. In spirit and in truth. So like the previous readings the impure had to be put out of the Temple, which is like the core area of His heart. So we clean out our impurities and heart perceptions to align in oneness with His heart.
