Leviticus 15 – Emissions

Everyone is unclean at some point in their lives.  Some of us just more so than others.  So what do you do when you have an unclean people and a holy God who can not stand uncleanness in His presence?  You don’t want their uncleanness to cause their destruction.  So how do you separate their uncleanness from YHWH’s tabernacle?

Well, the simplest and easiest way would be to set down some ground rules.  Set up some basic rules and expectations of ways to keep the uncleanness away from the presence of the one whose holiness would consume the one with the uncleanness.  Once that uncleanness is dealt with and accounted for, that should allow life to go on as needed.

Do we recognize our need to separate our sin from His holiness?  Do we attempt to pursue Him while still being consumed by our sins, or do we come to Him with a repentant heart?  Do we acknowledge our uncleanness emitted through our actions as sins, and do we come to Him for forgiveness; or do we just excuse them as “flaws” that give us character and personality?  What is our attitude about our uncleanness and the “emissions” in our lives?
