That was in first second grade in a boys club, all boys allowed and and some of the girls in my grade and girls club and it was just girls allowed. The reality of differences between male and female has led to gender clubs even among adults. Thus we have man caves and she shed and 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. If you had a blood only club, then if you were blood, obviously stay. Yeah, it's interesting that we have these different types of clubs. Did you know God has such a club? Do you know that God has a club where interests stay out? It's a club that he addresses and Leviticus Chapters Sixteen and in viticus Chapter Sixteen, are reading for today is LEVITICA's fourteen through sixteen, and in our reading today we look at skin diseases. There's a some reading about mold and what to do...

...in situations like that as you build your home. But then we get to lavidicas sixteen and it's a very special day in the Jewish calendar. It's a day known as the day of a tone. 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 that you're not just want to read some verses out of Levitica's sixteen. Then he has to take the two goals and present them before the Lord at the entrance to 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 shall bring the goat whose lot falls to the Lord and sacrifice it for a seeing offer, but the goat shows a by lot, as a scapegoat, shall be presented alive before the Lord to be...

...used for making atonement by sending it into the willderness as escaping. Then Verse Twenty Through Twenty Four of this same chapter of nicus sixteen, when Aaron has finished making atonement for the most high plays 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, put them on the goats head. He shall send the Go away into the wilderness in the care of someone appointed for the task. The go will carry on itself all their sins to a remote place and the man shall release it there in the Wilderness. Then Aaron is to go into the tin of meeting and take 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 area and put on his regular gardens. This Day is your to poor. Day is the only day that anyone could enter into the whole ipomes. The holy place is known as the temple. The Holy of wholes was a place known for God's presence. It was at the back of the temple there was a curtain that shielded the rest of the temple from the holy of holies. Inside the 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 ten commandments who kept in their arrand's rod was kept in there and it was the presence of God. No one could come into the presence of God, but on this day the high priest could come...

...in, as long as the smoke from the incense provided a covering for him, and he would come in and make an offering, an atonement offering for the sins of Israel. Well, the high priest on this day when he served, as you read Le Vinca Sixteen, you'll see that he took off his high priestly garments, those Royal Regal Garments, those Purple Garments with a beautiful stones lay within the shoulders and the breast plate that he would wear. If you saw it on any other day, you know there comes royalty, there comes the high priest. But on this day he removed those put on just simple white linen garments symbolizing his purity and his humility, and he would...

...serve this day. There were two specific goats that were set aside for Israel. One was the scape gain. High Priest would lay his hands over it and, symbolizing the transference of the seins 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 that have committed this past week, this past month, this past year, the seems that I've done, the hateful things I thought, the hateful things I'd said, the hateful things I had done, all of my sins were transferred over that go and I would see my sins leaving. They're going, they're going, they're going. Beautiful Imagery for...

...what God was teaching to the children of Israel, what he would do through the lamb of God to remove their seins. This goat would go out into the Wilderness and there die all the law for the sins of Israel. But then there was the other goat that would also die, this gold, which would be taken to the altar and seeins confessed over this gilt as well, but this time, instead of the sins being removed, this guilt would die. It was an offering to God while our sins must be removed for us to be able to be in the presence of God, we must also appease God's anger at Seein. That's what this second goat did. It appease the...

...anger of God. A beautiful picture here in Leviticus sixteen, of God, through Jesus Christ, removing our sins so that they're gone. Once we invite him into our life, once we accept his sacrifice in our place, our cms laid on him, he pays our 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 a beautiful, beautiful picture all the way back here in viticus. I told you at the beginning any of this book of Leviticus, this is the most Mute Testament Book and all of the Old Testament, and this is swan. Well, at the end of the day, the high priest would then take off those blood stained garments of humility and he...

...would put back on those royal roads of high priestly garments. The symbolism is clear. Over a thousand years later, Jesus would come as both both the high priest and the goats. He would come to remove our sins and appease God's anger, but he would also come in humility his royalty. He would just lay aside that regal royalty for his service here on Earth. He didn't set aside was the empty he was still 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 and humbled himself. So God had highly Exalted Him and given in the name the is above every name, the name of Jesus, whereby every name shall bow 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 levented the sixteen. Stay out. I've got a very special club. It's called The 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 of this 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 which separated the people from God, that Curbin was torn into it was as if God said in the Old Testament I'm holy, you're not, stayale, but when Jesus died, God said, come in, I've made a way. You can now be holy by the work of Jesus, you and I can be a part of God's Club because as of what Jesus did. What an awesome, awesome text, what an awesome truth from the word of God. Today he made it clear. God says even today, come in, I want to visit with you, I want to talk to you. Want to do that today. Want to just visit with God. He's made away. I know I love to. I would...

...encourage us both to well. Our Reading For tomorrow is a viticus, chapter seventeen through nineteen, but I want to pray with you before we go today. Father, we thank you so much for this amazing passage in Leviticus pointing to Jesus who, as a high priest, would humble himself, come and do the word that only the high priest could do, who's the gold would both remove our sin and remove your anger, the lamb of God that takes away the sin of man. Then father and highly and salt, with the end, once again put almost royal worlds of having made away for us to come and visit with you. Maybe do so even more. Jesus name,...

...we pray. Thank you for joining us today.
