So I have been getting some awesome revelation from the Holy Spirit as I have been reading Leviticus. And I came across this passage about the Leprous House. And in reading it, the Holy Spirit showed me how it is actually prophetic of the House of Israel.
Now this passage starts with the Lord speaking to Moses and Aaron about what to do when you find a house that has leprosy in it.
“When you enter the land of Canaan, which I give you for a possession, and I put a mark of leprosy on a house in the land of your possession, then the one who owns the house shall come and tell the priest, saying, ‘ Something like a mark of leprosy has become visible to me in the house.’Leviticus 14:34-35 NASB
So now let’s insert the House of Israel as the house that they are talking about. Who owns the house of Israel? God does. And who is the priest that God would go to? He would go to the heavenly High Priest, Jesus Christ. So basically God goes to Jesus and Jesus goes to judge the House of Israel.
So he shall look at the mark, and if the mark on the walls of the house has greenish or reddish depressions and appears deeper than the surface, then the priest shall come out of the house, to the doorway, and quarantine the house for seven days. The priest shall return on the seventh day and make an inspection. If the mark has indeed spread in the walls of the house,Leviticus 14:37-39 NASB
So the priest comes to judge the house and finds that the house has what seems to be a leprous mark. So he quarantines the house for seven days. Now this seven days is meaningful if you know of the seven day prophecy which has to do with the days of creation. I won’t get into it now but the last day is the sabbath and is connected with the reign of the messiah for one thousand years. So it is interesting that the priest would come back to check the house on the seventh day.
then the priest shall order them to tear out the stones with the mark in them and throw them away at an unclean place outside the city.Leviticus 14:40 NASB
For the Son of Man is going to come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and will then repay every man according to his deeds.Matthew 16:27 NASB
So both the priest and Messiah come to judge the house and come with people who will tear down.
Then they shall take other stones and replace those stones, and he shall take other plaster and replaster the house.Leviticus 14:42 NASB
you also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.1 Peter 2:5 NASB
But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, being a wild olive, were grafted in among them and became partaker with them of the rich root of the olive tree,Romans 11:17 NASB
So the old stones of the broken house are destroyed and taken away, there are new stones that are brought in to rebuild the house. And in the same way, the disciples of Christ are brought in to be built into a spiritual house and to be grafted on to the tree that had broken branches.
“When you enter the land of Canaan, which I give you for a possession, and I put a mark of leprosy on a house in the land of your possession,Leviticus 14:34 NASB
And He said, “If you will give earnest heed to the voice of the Lord your God, and do what is right in His sight, and give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians; for I, the Lord , am your healer.”Exodus 15:26 NASB
But why did God put a mark of Leprosy in His house? Because they did not follow His commandments, and we too are in danger of having our house destroyed if we do not obey the commandments of God. Do not resist and refuse the Holy Spirit of Truth.
For in the case of those who have once been enlightened and have tasted of the heavenly gift and have been made partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, and then have fallen away, it is impossible to renew them again to repentance, since they again crucify to themselves the Son of God and put Him to open shame.Hebrews 6:4-6 NASB
