  1. definition of covenant:
    Covenants in biblical times were often sealed by severing an animal, with the implication that the party who breaks the covenant will suffer a similar fate.

    Heb 9:15-22 (22 In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.)
    Matthew’s Commentary:
    The solemn transactions between God and man, are sometimes called a covenant, here a testament, which is a willing deed of a person, bestowing legacies on such persons as are described, and it only takes effect upon his death. Thus Christ died, not only to obtain the blessings of salvation for us, but to give power to the disposal of them. All, by sin, were become guilty before God, had forfeited every thing that is good; but God, willing to show the greatness of his mercy, proclaimed a covenant of grace. Nothing could be clean to a sinner, not even his religious duties; except as his guilt was done away by the death of a sacrifice, of value sufficient for that end, and unless he continually depended upon it. May we ascribe all real good works to the same all-procuring cause, and offer our spiritual sacrifices as sprinkled with Christ’s blood, and so purified from their defilement.

  2. so I can’t be here next live stream but I have a question that I really want an -answer- response to that. Is there a way to ask the question in advance?

  3. Concerning lots in the Proverbs, Proverbs 18:18 says, “The lot puts an end to quarrels
    and decides between powerful contenders.”

  4. Many have pointed out that casting lots doesn’t appear after the arrival of the Holy Spirit. It seems like when you were stuck in a decisions and couldn’t figure out what the right thing to do is, you would cast lots. I think the idea is in those extreme situations when you don’t know what to do, you leave to “chance” because God is sovereign and is divinely in control of the outcome of the lot. But since the arrival of the Holy Spirit and the completion of the Scriptures, we should have enough direct instruction so that would no longer be necessary.

  6. Someone suggested I watch this because we are studying through some stuff in Leviticus together. My main question wasn’t answered in this podcast, but I like what you guys had to say and agree with pretty much all of it. Leviticus is my favorite OT book, so I appreciate you illuminating it here. Keep up the good work 🙂

  7. Regarding the law pertaining to the tattoos. (Lev. 19:28) Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the Lord.

    First, I must say that I have enjoyed your ministry immensely; it has sparked a lot of interest in the Word from a different perspective, and I eagerly enjoy your “Read the Bible” illustrations of how each book is broken down. I sometimes watch them on my breaks at work in the break room, and in a small way, it hits others with a dose of the gospel. But here, on this particular issue of tattoos, I diverge from your view slightly.

    I am a retired navy sailor, 20 years of service traveling to 50+ foreign ports and watching sailors get tattoos, including myself, who got four of them in my travels. I can relate with this topic, especially now that I am a Christian and want to glorify God in all that I say and do.

    As I reflect on what prompted me to get the tattoos, (I was unsaved at the time) I reflect also on the purpose…it was an adornment of the flesh. Many sailors did it to ‘look cool’, look tough, or make a statement about what they believe in, what their specialty was, or…even for more perverse reasons, like the glamorization of women, sex, culture, their idols of pro athletes, musicians, relatives, movie stars, etc. I did it to relate with a specific hobby in my life at that time: poetry, poker, and art.

    Our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit. We are to be living sacrifices. We must examine every motive, and whatsoever we do, we do all to the glory and honor of God. We are not trying to glorify ourselves, our bodies, or the temple, but true beauty is found on the inward parts: our hearts, our spirit, the fruit of our spirit: Love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, meekness faith temperance. We are living in obedience to every command of the Holy Spirit. These bring true glory to God. Does the Holy Spirit prompt us to get a tattoo? I would question that. “Is God telling me to do this?”

    I am reminded of Exodus 20:25 And if thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not build it of hewn stone: for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast polluted it. The care and precaution that people used in creating the temple, or in their acts of worship ought to shed some sort of light on how particular God is with us and how we treat our own bodies.

    I am also reminded of what culture is driven to get tattoos? What influences us in this direction? Is it necessary? Could it damage my testimony? In this walk, I find wisdom and discernment by running through a gamut of questions and critically examining my motives behind each activity. Is God influencing me to do this, or is it the world? How will the world view this?

    Many Christians today say, “I want to get a tattoo that glorifies God, or points people toward Jesus.” The best way we can do that is with the fruit of the Spirit. Even rock stars and rap stars wear crosses, the Catholics do too, but their inward character is in contrast to their outward appearance.

    We are a peculiar people, set apart, holy unto the Lord. We walk not after the ways of the world…but there is a distinction between us and them (what the heathen are doing). The culture of tattoos is one of pop culture and sinfulness.

    Do I regret my tattoos? Yes. When my unsaved daughter came home one day with a tattoo, it grieved me, because it is a permanent stain of sin on this temple, and she saw that I had them from before, and was now just ‘following what dad did.’

    Holiness unto the Lord,
