IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT THESE INTERPRETATIONS DO NOT REPLACE THE READING OF THE BIBLE BUT MERELY PLACE VARIOUS MATTERS IN THE CORRECT CONTEXT AND HIGHLIGHT VERY IMPORTANT POINTS!!
MOST IMPORTANTLY, THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE, JEHOVAH GOD ONLY “GIVES” US WHAT WE AS HUMANS “NEED” TO KNOW ABOUT HIM, HIS INTENTIONS, HIS PLANS AND HIS DESIRES!!
CONTINUING WITH THE BOOK OF LEVITICUS
LEVITICUS Chapter 20
A very brief interpretation of Chapter 20 will follow:
JEHOVAH GOD is VERY specific in stating that if any person should offer any of his offspring to idols in his serving of them, he and every person that were aware of his deed and remained silent, would be destroyed without fail.
I would imagine that the same applies to us in our present time, as well as into the future; and until “the end times” occur!!!
Even persons having contact with spirit mediums or persons practicing magic were condemned to destruction; and, as with the previous Chapter, nudity, adultery, fornication, homosexuality, bestiality and prostitution are STRONGLY condemned.
Even showing disrespect to one’s parents was TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE.
For ALL the RELIGIONS and PERSONS that ACCEPT, CONDONE and ALLOW HOMOSEXUAL PRACTICES or KEEP SILENT as to the ABOMINABLE PRACTICES THEY ARE, I have to include the following Scriptures:
“13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
14 And if a man take a wife and her mother, it is wickedness: they shall be burnt with fire, both he and they; that there be no wickedness among you.
15 And if a man lie with a beast, he shall surely be put to death: and ye shall slay the beast.
16 And if a woman approach unto any beast, and lie down thereto, thou shalt kill the woman, and the beast: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”
Please note how important the above Scriptures are and if your religion is guilty of the above, so will you also be if you do not “FLEE FROM IT”!!!
I must also just mention that the following words “they shall be burnt with fire” in Verse 14 will be taken out of context if they are considered to have the literal meaning.
The word “FIRE” is normally used in the Bible to indicate ETERNAL DESTRUCTION!!
Other laws that were included were the keeping of the Sabbath and other scripturally healthy practices; and also that JEHOVAH GOD promised HIS people that if they upheld HIS commandments that HE would “lead them to a land filled with milk and honey”.
My Next Post should cover LEVITICUS Chapter 21.
