Week 8 Day 3
sin you don't hear that word much any more it sounds so old-fashioned out-of-date judgmental irrelevant to many it has the significance of dust in the attic a character flaw at worst a part of human nature that will be outgrown over time and overlooked in the meantimesin some have tried to deal with it by changing the name sanitizing it neutralizing it anesthetizing itsin our Lord takes it very seriously says we must be cleansed forgiven restored and wants to so fill our lives with his spirit that no sin can ever take root and grow there
ANNUAL ATONEMENT The scapegoat symbolized sins forgiven and removed. Leviticus 16
2"Tell Aaron your brother not to come at just any time into the Holy Place inside the veil, before the mercy seat which is on the ark. 3Thus Aaron shall come into the Holy Place: with the blood of a young bull as a sin offering, and of a ram as a burnt offering. 4He shall put the holy linen tunic and the linen trousers on his body; he shall be girded with a linen sash, and with the linen turban he shall be attired. He shall wash his body in water, and put them on. 5And he shall take from the congregation of the children of Israel two kids of the goats as a sin offering and one ram as a burnt offering. 6"Aaron shall offer the bull as a sin offering which is for himself, and make atonement for himself and for his house. 7He shall take the two goats and present them before the Lord at the door of the tabernacle of meeting. 8Then Aaron shall cast lots for the two goats: one lot for the Lord and the other lot for the scapegoat. 9Aaron shall bring the goat on which the Lord's lot fell, and offer it as a sin offering. 10But the goat on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat shall be presented alive before the Lord. 15"Then he shall kill the goat of the sin offering, which is for the people, bring its blood inside the veil, sprinkle it on the mercy seat and before the mercy seat. 16So he shall make atonement for all their sins. 21"Then Aaron shall lay both his hands on the head of the live goat, confess over it the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions, concerning all their sins, putting them on the head of the goat, and shall send it away into the wilderness by the hand of a suitable man. 22The goat shall bear on itself all their iniquities; and he shall release the goat in the wilderness. 29"This shall be a statute forever for you: In the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, you shall afflict your souls, and do no work at all, whether a native of your own country or a stranger who dwells among you. 30For on that day the priest shall make atonement for you, to cleanse you, that you may be clean from all your sins before the Lord. 34This shall be an everlasting statue for you, to make atonement for the children of Israel, for all their sins, once a year."
