spiritual defect (1)

Filed under: by:

Leviticus 21:16-21
21:16 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
21:17 Speak unto Aaron, saying, Whosoever he be of thy seed in their generations that hath any blemish, let him not approach to offer the bread of his God.
21:18 For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or any thing superfluous,
21:19 Or a man that is brokenfooted, or brokenhanded,
21:20 Or crookbackt, or a dwarf, or that hath a blemish in his eye, or be scurvy, or scabbed, or hath his stones broken;
21:21 No man that hath a blemish of the seed of Aaron the priest shall come nigh to offer the offerings of the LORD made by fire: he hath a blemish; he shall not come nigh to offer the bread of his God.

In the age of the old covenant, people with disabilities should not come to the holy temple. Physical disabilities is not feasible to come to the house of God and made offerings to God. Even if the priest was the son of Levi. Physical disabilities was a curse.so at that time, the complete body without disabilities is a great grace of God.

Well what about now?
Now, in the new covenant age, physical disability is not a barrier to come to the house of God. Blind people, short people, or people who do not have hands and feet can come to the house of God. Whoever they are!! Because of the holy blood of Jesus has redeemed for our sins.

But what about the spiritual defect?
One physically handicapped is blind,. The blind man in the age old covenant could not enter into the temple. The blind man can not see the road. The blind man can not see the beauty of the world around him. He can only hear.

People who are spiritually blind is people who can not see the grace of God. He was not able to meet and see the love of Jesus. Of course these people are not able to enter into the most holy temple of God. Because he can not see the path of God. Although she or he went to church. Though he or she was a Christian. Even God has poured blessings on his life. But he still did not feel God's presence. He went to church only for duty. At the time the Lord Jesus is present among the 2 or 3 people in the church, he just did not see it.

People like that must have spiritual healing. For his/her spiritual to see again. Spiritually blind will make us can not see the way of God. Spiritually blind will make our lives full of doubt. Because in fact he or she would walk without direction. So if we have a friend who was blind spiritually, we must guide and heal in the name of the Lord Jesus.

God bless You

What an excellent post, my friend, and you are right. I see much blindness... not so much those who are physically blind, but more spiritually blind, even amongst the born-again. It's a shame really. That's when we must pray and ask God to remove the scales from their eyes.

Thanks for posting this very important word of knowledge. God bless you!
