Leviticus 8:18-24 … consecration

Leviticus 8:18-24 … consecration

18 And he {Moses} brought the ram for the burnt offering: and Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the ram.

19 And he killed it; and Moses sprinkled the blood upon the altar round about.

20 And he cut the ram into pieces; and Moses burnt the head, and the pieces, and the fat.

21 And he washed the inwards and the legs in water; and Moses burnt the whole ram upon the altar: it was a burnt sacrifice for a sweet savour, and an offering made by fire unto the Lord; as the Lord commanded Moses.

The consecration of the priest and the death of Yahshua..

22 And he brought the other ram, the ram of consecration: and Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the ram.

During the physical act of anointing, by Hebrew custom, a person knelt while oil was poured or rubbed on the forehead. Also, Aaron, The high Priest would have been soaked in oil while the other attending priest would have only been sprinkled with oil. Messiah was called the Anointed One. The wine in scripture always refers to doctrine.

Revelation 6:6 “And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.”

23 And he slew it; and Moses took of the blood of it, and put it upon the tip of Aaron’s right ear, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot.

24 And he brought Aaron’s sons, and Moses put of the blood upon the tip of their right ear, and upon the thumbs of their right hands, and upon the great toes of their right feet: and Moses sprinkled the blood upon the altar round about.

This action is called a “chuk” in Hebrew, a statute, and is commanded by YHWH but not explained. Looking at the installation of Yahshua as our Great High Priest

Hebrews 4:14 “Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.”

The Romans were not in a practice of making crowns out of thorns. [Genesis 22:13 “And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son.”]

The word behind here is  אַחַר ‘achar and it means “what is to come after”. Abraham has his son at Mt. Moriah, the exact same place where Yahshua will be crucified. Abraham sees the vision of Messiah with his head stuck in the thorns as the perfect sacrifice for all mankind.

John 8:56 “Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.” From the crown of thorns there would be blood dripped onto the right ear, from the nails {and/or the beating} there would be blood on both the right thumb and the right toe.love-699480_1280
