That was in first second grade in a boys club, all boysallowed and and some of the girls in my grade and girls club and itwas just girls allowed. The reality of differences between male and female has ledto gender clubs even among adults. Thus we have man caves and she shedand obviously the point being if it's a...

...girls club and you're a guy,stay out. If it's a guy's club and you're a girl, stay out. But that's not just what gender that could be with any gloves. Ifyou had a blood only club, then if you were blood, obviously stay. Yeah, it's interesting that we have these different types of clubs. Didyou know God has such a club? Do you know that God has aclub where interests stay out? It's a club that he addresses and Leviticus ChaptersSixteen and in viticus Chapter Sixteen, are reading for today is LEVITICA's fourteen throughsixteen, and in our reading today we look at skin diseases. There's asome reading about mold and what to do...

...in situations like that as you buildyour home. But then we get to lavidicas sixteen and it's a very specialday in the Jewish calendar. It's a day known as the day of atone. It's one day out of the entire Jewish calendar year in Hebrew,Yom Day Kapoor atone, the day of a tone, and we see thatyou're not just want to read some verses out of Levitica's sixteen. Then hehas to take the two goals and present them before the Lord at the entranceto the ten of the meeting. He's the cast Fox for the two goats, one lot for the Lord and the other for the scapegoat. Aaron shallbring the goat whose lot falls to the Lord and sacrifice it for a seeingoffer, but the goat shows a by lot, as a scapegoat, shallbe presented alive before the Lord to be...

...used for making atonement by sending itinto the willderness as escaping. Then Verse Twenty Through Twenty Four of this samechapter of nicus sixteen, when Aaron has finished making atonement for the most highplays the ten of meeting and Altar, he shall bring forward the live goat. He used to lay both hands on the head of the live goat,confessed all the wickedness and rebellion of the Israelites, all their sins, putthem on the goats head. He shall send the Go away into the wildernessin the care of someone appointed for the task. The go will carry onitself all their sins to a remote place and the man shall release it therein the Wilderness. Then Aaron is to go into the tin of meeting andtake off the linen garments he put on before he entered the most holy place. He's to leave them there. She'Llbey...

...himself with water in the sanctuary areaand put on his regular gardens. This Day is your to poor. Dayis the only day that anyone could enter into the whole ipomes. The holyplace is known as the temple. The Holy of wholes was a place knownfor God's presence. It was at the back of the temple there was acurtain that shielded the rest of the temple from the holy of holies. Insidethe holy of holies, behind the curve was the Ark of the covenent,that wooden box that was covered in gold and layered and go and the tencommandments who kept in their arrand's rod was kept in there and it was thepresence of God. No one could come into the presence of God, buton this day the high priest could come...

...in, as long as the smokefrom the incense provided a covering for him, and he would come in and makean offering, an atonement offering for the sins of Israel. Well,the high priest on this day when he served, as you read Le VincaSixteen, you'll see that he took off his high priestly garments, those RoyalRegal Garments, those Purple Garments with a beautiful stones lay within the shoulders andthe breast plate that he would wear. If you saw it on any otherday, you know there comes royalty, there comes the high priest. Buton this day he removed those put on just simple white linen garments symbolizing hispurity and his humility, and he would...

...serve this day. There were twospecific goats that were set aside for Israel. One was the scape gain. HighPriest would lay his hands over it and, symbolizing the transference of theseins of Israel onto this scape gold. Then, the end of that day, someone would take that go and start leading that goat into the willderness.And if we were there, that would be our seeings, my sins thathave committed this past week, this past month, this past year, theseems that I've done, the hateful things I thought, the hateful things I'dsaid, the hateful things I had done, all of my sins were transferred overthat go and I would see my sins leaving. They're going, they'regoing, they're going. Beautiful Imagery for...

...what God was teaching to the childrenof Israel, what he would do through the lamb of God to remove theirseins. This goat would go out into the Wilderness and there die all thelaw for the sins of Israel. But then there was the other goat thatwould also die, this gold, which would be taken to the altar andseeins confessed over this gilt as well, but this time, instead of thesins being removed, this guilt would die. It was an offering to God whileour sins must be removed for us to be able to be in thepresence of God, we must also appease God's anger at Seein. That's whatthis second goat did. It appease the...

...anger of God. A beautiful picturehere in Leviticus sixteen, of God, through Jesus Christ, removing our sinsso that they're gone. Once we invite him into our life, once weaccept his sacrifice in our place, our cms laid on him, he paysour fable the removal of sin, but also the appeasing of God's anger,that God's anger at our Sein is now appeased by Jesus's death. What abeautiful, beautiful picture all the way back here in viticus. I told youat the beginning any of this book of Leviticus, this is the most MuteTestament Book and all of the Old Testament, and this is swan. Well,at the end of the day, the high priest would then take offthose blood stained garments of humility and he...

...would put back on those royal roadsof high priestly garments. The symbolism is clear. Over a thousand years later, Jesus would come as both both the high priest and the goats. Hewould come to remove our sins and appease God's anger, but he would alsocome in humility his royalty. He would just lay aside that regal royalty forhis service here on Earth. He didn't set aside was the empty he wasstill fully God, but rather he humbled himself. Then, after he died, after his work was complete, he would then ascend back into heaven.He would take those royal garments back on,...

...just as he descend into earth andhumbled himself. So God had highly Exalted Him and given in the namethe is above every name, the name of Jesus, whereby every name shallbow and every tongue confess to the glory of the father that he is Lord. But it is interesting to me that God was very clear here in leventedthe sixteen. Stay out. I've got a very special club. It's calledThe holiness club. And if you're not hold, if you're not here,if there's any staying in your mind, stay out. You're not part ofthis club. And that's what that curb said to everyone. Stay Up.But did you know the New Testament teaches that on the day Jesus died,when he died, that curb in the...

...temple of Jerusalem, that curb whichseparated the people from God, that Curbin was torn into it was as ifGod said in the Old Testament I'm holy, you're not, stayale, but whenJesus died, God said, come in, I've made a way.You can now be holy by the work of Jesus, you and I canbe a part of God's Club because as of what Jesus did. What anawesome, awesome text, what an awesome truth from the word of God.Today he made it clear. God says even today, come in, Iwant to visit with you, I want to talk to you. Want todo that today. Want to just visit with God. He's made away.I know I love to. I would...

...encourage us both to well. OurReading For tomorrow is a viticus, chapter seventeen through nineteen, but I wantto pray with you before we go today. Father, we thank you so muchfor this amazing passage in Leviticus pointing to Jesus who, as a highpriest, would humble himself, come and do the word that only the highpriest could do, who's the gold would both remove our sin and remove youranger, the lamb of God that takes away the sin of man. Thenfather and highly and salt, with the end, once again put almost royalworlds of having made away for us to come and visit with you. Maybedo so even more. Jesus name,...

...we pray. Thank you for joiningus today.
