Disciples Memorial Portion of Tetzaveh: Exodus 29
Earlier in last weeks Memorial portion we looked at the everlasting statutes that were mandated at the end of the commandments, of the installation of the priest office. As you may know that this memorial portion was read on Saturday, February 27, 2010 – and the chapters were Exodus 27:20 through Exodus 30:10. Since this is a teaching blog and you will not learn about the stories that illustrate the word of God, in most sanctuaries, then if you feel this is not the annointing, but you can learn then feel free to follow the pages of this blog. Remember the Apostle John’s warning, in 1st John 2:26-27:
(26)I am writing these things to you about those who are trying to lead you astray. (27) As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit—just as it has taught you, remain in him.
Exodus 27:21 21In the tabernacle of the congregation without the vail, which is before the testimony, Aaron and his sons shall order it from evening to morning before the LORD: it shall be a statute for ever unto their generations on the behalf of the children of Israel. (Exodus 27:21, King James Version)
Exodus 28:43 – 43And they shall be upon Aaron, and upon his sons, when they come in unto the tabernacle of the congregation, or when they come near unto the altar to minister in the holy place; that they bear not iniquity, and die: it shall be a statute for ever unto him and his seed after him. (Exodus 28:43, King James Version)
Exodus 29:9 – 9And thou shalt gird them with girdles, Aaron and his sons, and put the bonnets on them: and the priest’s office shall be theirs for a perpetual statute: and thou shalt consecrate Aaron and his sons. (Exodus 29:9, King James Version)
Next, we read that in the chapter of twenty-nine, in the book of Exodus, the High Priest are hallowed: the blood of a bull; two rams; unleavened cakes; and unleavened wafers with oil (Exodus 29:10-14, 15-18, 19-27). Then the priest are washed at the door of the tabernacle. After the priest is washed, the priest shall put the garments on Aaron: the coat, the robe of the ephod; the ephod, the breast plate and shall wear the girlde of the Ephod. Then the Mitre (turban) shall be placed on Aarons head. Then, the annointing oil shall be pour on Aaron’s head. Lastly, the sons of Aaron are brought into the office of the priest, and shall wear bonnets, henceforth; and also girded with girdles (probably the same sheeps’ wool made from the veil, curtain, ephod, and the robe etc); the priest office shall be theirs, Aaron and sons, for a perpetual statute.
The breast of the wave offering shall be sanctified; and the shoulder of the ram shall be consecrated, even the offerings that are for Aaron and his sons: the heave offerings shall be a statute forever from the children of Israel.
Furthermore, the heave offering shall be from the children of Israels sacrifice of thier peace offerings. The heave offering and the peace offering shall be sacrificed unto the LORD, their God.
Next, the holy garments of Aaron shall be his and his sons, and the sons of his after them, shall be priest – annointed and consecrated, and inaugurated as the priest – that shall last daily for seven days, in the tabernacle of the congregation to minister in the holy place (Exodus 29:31).
The descendants of Aaron shall be consecrated and eat the ram and the bread in the basket (Matthew 12:4), with the atonment that was made with Aaron, the Israelites first High Priest and Aarons sons shall be consecrated and sanctified, with the rams and breads which are holy for the consecration and sanctification; but a stranger shall not eat the holy ram and bread of the atonement (Exodus 29:31 and Exodus 29:19-28).
Like the consecration ceremony with the ram, the consecration of the ram, this too shall the sons of Aaron do in the seven days of the inauguration according to the commandments of Moses, the word of God. A sin offering shall atone, annoint, and sanctify the holy altar (Matthew 23:19); and you shall be holy, that touch the altar.
Finally, the LORD will be present speak and meet you with his word, and with a continual burnt offerings and a drink offering. Again, God reaffirms that He will meet the children of Israel and sanctify them with His word, and He will be glorified, dwelling among them, and He is the God of Israel, even unto this day, March 6th, 2010 and forever more.
To conclude the twenty-ninth chapter (Exodus 29), the loving father, God Almighty, wants His dwell among His children, the sons of Israel – the children of Israel – and the shall know their Father that brought them out of the land of Egypt.
THE WORD OF GOD SHALL GO FORTH FROM JERUSALEM

Mark 8:1-30 – Beware of the Leaven of the Pharisees and Herod:
1 In those days, the multitude being very great and having nothing to eat, Jesus called His disciples to Him and said to them,
2 “I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now continued with Me three days and have nothing to eat.
3 And if I send them away hungry to their own houses, they will faint on the way; for some of them have come from afar.”
4 Then His disciples answered Him, “How can one satisfy these people with bread here in the wilderness?”
5 He asked them, “How many loaves do you have?” And they said, “Seven.”
6 So He commanded the multitude to sit down on the ground. And He took the seven loaves and gave thanks, broke them and gave them to His disciples to set before them; and they set them before the multitude.
7 They also had a few small fish; and having blessed them, He said to set them also before them.
8 So they ate and were filled, and they took up seven large baskets of leftover fragments.
9 Now those who had eaten were about four thousand. And He sent them away,
10 immediately got into the boat with His disciples, and came to the region of Dalmanutha.
11 Then the Pharisees came out and began to dispute with Him, seeking from Him a sign from heaven, testing Him.
12 But He sighed deeply in His spirit, and said, “Why does this generation seek a sign? Assuredly, I say to you, no sign shall be given to this generation.”
13 And He left them, and getting into the boat again, departed to the other side.
14 Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, and they did not have more than one loaf with them in the boat.
15 Then He charged them, saying, “Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod.”
16 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, “ It is because we have no bread.”
17 But Jesus, being aware of it, said to them, “Why do you reason because you have no bread? Do you not yet perceive nor understand? Is your heart still hardened?
18 Having eyes, do you not see? And having ears, do you not hear? And do you not remember?
19 When I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments did you take up?”
They said to Him, “Twelve.”
20 “Also, when I broke the seven for the four thousand, how many large baskets full of fragments did you take up?”
And they said, “Seven.”
21 So He said to them, “How is it you do not understand?”
22 Then He came to Bethsaida; and they brought a blind man to Him, and begged Him to touch him. 23 So He took the blind man by the hand and led him out of the town. And when He had spit on his eyes and put His hands on him, He asked him if he saw anything.
24 And he looked up and said, “I see men like trees, walking.”
25 Then He put His hands on his eyes again and made him look up. And he was restored and saw everyone clearly.
26 Then He sent him away to his house, saying, “Neither go into the town, nor tell anyone in the town.”
27 Now Jesus and His disciples went out to the towns of Caesarea Philippi; and on the road He asked His disciples, saying to them, “Who do men say that I am?”
28 So they answered, “John the Baptist; but some say, Elijah; and others, one of the prophets.”
29 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”
Peter answered and said to Him, “You are the Christ.”
30 Then He strictly warned them that they should tell no one about Him. (Mark 8, New King James Version)
