We as Christians are called to be of the “Royal Priesthood.” Leviticus talks about about qualifications or disqualifications for the typical priesthood.

What is the Spiritual significance of the following verses?:

Speak unto Aaron, saying, Whosoever he be of thy seed in their generations that hath any blemish, let him not approach to offer the bread of his God. For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or any thing superfluous, Or a man that is brokenfooted, or brokenhanded, Or crookbackt, or a dwarf, or that hath a blemish in his eye, or be scurvy, or scabbed, or hath his stones broken; No man that hath a blemish of the seed of Aaron the priest shall come nigh to offer the offerings of the LORD made by fire: he hath a blemish; he shall not come nigh to offer the bread of his God. He shall eat the bread of his God, both of the most holy, and of the holy. Only he shall not go in unto the vail, nor come nigh unto the altar, because he hath a blemish; that he profane not my sanctuaries: for I the LORD do sanctify them. And Moses told it unto Aaron, and to his sons, and unto all the children of Israel. (Lev 21:17-24)

  1. Here are some scriptures on: Lame and Flat Nosed….

    LAME

    The Christian Walk (sin in our walk, or shortcomings)

    If my step hath turned out of the way, and mine heart walked after mine eyes, and if any blot hath cleaved to mine hands; (Job 31:7)

    And make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way; but let it rather be healed. (Heb 12:13)

    Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. (1Co 9:24)
    And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. (1Co 9:25)
    I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: (1Co 9:26)
    But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway. (1Co 9:27)

    Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, (Heb 12:1)

    FLAT NOSE

    Nose used for smelling (for good or bad) We smell differences. Incapable of perceiving in others goodness. Not capable of discerning good or evil. Discerning Times/Seasons, Truth/Falsehoods. Not able to judge correctly.

    Whoso keepeth the commandment shall feel no evil thing: and a wise man’s heart discerneth both time and judgment. (Ecc 8:5)

    And thou shalt burn the whole ram upon the altar: it is a burnt offering unto the LORD: it is a sweet savour, an offering made by fire unto the LORD. (Exo 29:18)

    For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish: (2Co 2:15)
    To the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things? (2Co 2:16)
    For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ. (2Co 2:17)

    Dead flies cause the ointment of the apothecary to send forth a stinking savour: so doth a little folly him that is in reputation for wisdom and honour. (Ecc 10:1)

    Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people? (1Ki 3:9)

    Whoso keepeth the commandment shall feel no evil thing: and a wise man’s heart discerneth both time and judgment. (Ecc 8:5)

    And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean. (Eze 44:23)

    And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times? (Mat 16:3)

    Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time? (Luk 12:56)
    Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right? (Luk 12:57)

    Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. (1Co 2:13)
    But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. (1Co 2:14)

    But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. (1Co 11:28)
    For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. (1Co 11:29)
    For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. (1Co 11:30)
    For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. (1Co 11:31)
    But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world. (1Co 11:32)

    Of whom we have many things to say, and hard to be uttered, seeing ye are dull of hearing. (Heb 5:11)
    For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. (Heb 5:12)
    For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. (Heb 5:13)
    But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses [sense of smell] exercised to discern both good and evil. (Heb 5:14)

    For your obedience is come abroad unto all men. I am glad therefore on your behalf: but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil. (Rom 16:19)
