#26 - Shemini (Eighth)
and Week 2 of The Counting of the Omer

April 8th - 14th
Leviticus 9:1 - 11:47

“You shall also count for yourselves from the day after the Sabbath, from the day when you brought in the sheaf of the wave offering; there shall be seven complete Sabbaths. You shall count fifty days to the day after the seventh Sabbath; then you shall present a new grain offering to Yahweh.” (Vayikra/Leviticus 23:15-16) 

Torah Overview: Look at the “Pattern”. There is a process to coming into HIS presence, it hasn’t changed. Nadab and Abihu didn’t follow the prescribed procedure, the “Pattern” and they came in with their agenda and their way. There is only one way to come into HIS presence. So what has been your approach, your pattern or “strange sacrifice”?? This picture is filled with Yeshua. The priests are given directions to make atonement; Yeshua is the atonement for us! We have the results if we don’t follow His procedures (“Choose Life”). Then we have directions for Kashrut, showing two things:
(1) The areas of physical “Clean” & “Unclean”. Tahor & Tamei
(2) The areas of Spiritual Tables that we eat from today of “Clean’ & “Unclean”.
