Today’s reading: Leviticus 14:2
Hope for the hopeless
Yesterday, we talked about how leprosy can become a life sentence to those who have been affected by it. In fact, most people would even consider lepers as good as dead.
However, in Leviticus 14, we are given a glimpse of hope for lepers.
2 “This shall be the law of the leper for the day of his cleansing: He shall be brought to the priest.
As we can see here, the lepers have a day of cleansing when he is healed. Although people become lepers, they still have this hope in them that someday they will be cleansed. They will be healed. They know there’s a chance for them to be healed completely because they hear about the day of cleansing.
In a bizarre ceremony, the priest needed two living and clean birds, cedarwood, scarlet, and hyssop. All of these items bear significant meaning.
One bird is to be killed while the other is set free. Cedarwood is resistant to disease and rot. Scarlet was used to making the curtains and veil of the tabernacle. Hyssop is used to sprinkle blood or water.
All these are actually pointing to the future sacrifice that Yahshua would do not just for the lepers but to all of mankind.
As a whole, all of humanity is infected with leprosy.
If you look around us, all is hopeless. We don’t see any hope for this world.
Up until we look at the sacrifice made by Yahshua. All have changed when He finally died for all of us.
Hope was given to all of us, whether we know it or not.
This world is oblivious to what Yahweh has in store for all of us.
But that doesn’t eliminate the fact that one day, Yahshua will return here on earth, destroy the corrupt human government, and establish God’s Kingdom.
And that my brothers and sisters is truly the greatest hope to this dying world!
