Leviticus 8 – Anointing

The time has come.  Everything has been built to specs and the work of the tabernacle is about to begin.  Now is one of my favorite times.  It’s anointing time!  I don’t know why, but i always find this so exciting.  It is the dedication of the work for service.  It is a time of change and of new work with YHWH.

He is an amazing God, and He works through us, His people.  Even though He is the AWEsome, overpowering, holy, creator of the universe; He works in us, but he doesn’t consume us and our personality in the process.  In fact, not only does His personality not overpower us; who He is actually strengthens our personality and makes us each more unique and distinctive than we were before.

As a result, when a new work is being done and a new anointing comes, it changes who we are and how we worship HIM!  YHWH never changes, yet He is new every morning!  His work and ways continually change, but He never does.  I think that that is part of why i find this anointing process so exciting.  Things are about to change.  A man and his sons are about to find  their purpose and destiny.  YHWH is working anew, and this…THIS is a turning point!

I think we should celebrate turning points more often.  I don’t think that we do it like we used to.  The turning point from child to adult (rite of passage) has been lost.  The celebrations of new roles and purposes  has gone  to the wayside.  This change in life.  This change in anointing should be something we embrace and become excited about.  It should help  to define, and redefine who we are.

Aaron and his sons are about to embark on a whole new journey.  They are being anointed by YHWH for His work and purpose!  Everything is beginning to change!
