Yes, I see it the bible as inward events as well, that is what is life to me now. And Im thinking Wilmont is speaking the same but cant really tell.
I was thinking how he said
New assembly called Church replaces Israel
New Bible replaces Tanach
New god replaces former mean G-d
New instruments of escaping hades (salvation) including priests and magic blood and flesh.
It is so true that organized religion has reduced the scripture to witchcraft. And have indeed replaced the ot with the nt. When in my experiance the OT has come alive in me and is a within book. I find Jesus Christ alive in the ot just as in the nt.
anyhoo, I dont know if your comment was to me but just chatting at ya lol
Lev. 17:11 (life of animal / creature soul is in blood)
Lev. 17:13 (you are not to eat the blood of any creature)
Jer. 31:29 (every man dies because of his own sin)
Romans 6:7 (physically dead people are totally freed from sin)Animal blood
was given FOR SACRIFICE, not HUMAN BLOOD
(Lev. 17).This blood was not to be eaten or consumned
Why were animals given for sacrifice?
Was G-d saying the animal substitute was equal to a man who never sinned (as type in Yeshua)?
Was G-d saying that animal substitute was equivalent to a sinning man?
Why then not substitute a man for another man as the pagans did?Because each man is responsible for his own sin
(Jer. 31:29 as one example).
But yet G-d has allowed man to be totally freed from sin when we physically die (Rom. 6:7).
Those under animal sacrifice still physically died.
Those under Yeshua sacrifice still physically died and die (good remez in Romans on this).
We all still physically die!
What can we say of the purpose of sacrifice, if we will ultimately be freed from sin when we physically die?
Sacrifice was for SPIRITUAL DEATH
until the time of physical death when we will be in perfected state (Heb. 11 and 12 again). When we loose GUILT / FLESH BLOOD is when we are in perfected state.
So does this mean that G-d has need of sacrifice so he can be appeased for a penalty?
No..because in sacrifice man SUBSTITUTES HIMSELF FOR HIMSELF
, to be as if dead and in a spiritualy perfected state / guilt free (Rom. 6 again).
That's what Yeshua was / is (IMO) trying to TEACH, the world through the SPIRIT.
SACRIFICE YOURSELF through the SUBSTITUTE. Animal sacrifice was not given or needed FOR GOD it was GIVEN by G-D FOR MAN TO START NEW BORN AGAIN....not stay stuck in trying to appease HIM.
Its not as simple for people who are really WAY OF TRUTH minded, to just accept that a man can be a replacement for an animal sacrifce, when it is against the very word of God they claim to follow? To me it is a form of idolatry (on a personal level, not that I would try to offend) to believe that a Yeshua is just a replacement for an animal, and that there is some magical component to flesh blood (which they later developed doctrines to eat their god).
If a person does not believe in their version of this form of god appeasement they go to a place of firey torment that the Greeks held to.
So I hold that if the commentary does not add up (which it does not as shown in above example concerning sacrifice in what is now Pauline Christianity), then there must be another explanation that we must seek to understand.
