John 8:1-24 The Importance of Oil in Scripture

Joh 8:1 Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.

Oil is made from olives. Oil is what is used to anoint the priests and the tabernacle, which was the tent-temple in the wilderness, which represents our holy of Holies being covered by flesh in the wilderness. Jesus’ flesh represented the tent-tabernacle that He was in while He was in this world, which is a wilderness to Him and to His flesh. He symbolically went to the mountain of oil for anointing.

Exo 29:7 Then shalt thou take the anointing oil, and pour it upon his head, and anoint him.

Exo 40:9 And thou shalt take the anointing oil, and anoint the tabernacle, and all that is therein, and shalt hallow it, and all the vessels thereof: and it shall be holy.

Exo 27:20 And thou shalt command the children of Israel, that they bring thee pure oil olive beaten for the light, to cause the lamp to burn always.

Joh 8:2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.

Morning seems to be not so much as a time, but an action, when light first appears in the oil of the spiritual anointing, you move. When we first get illumination, anointed, we come INTO OUR TEMPLE where Christ has appeared to teach us. We do not go outward but inward to meet Him for illumination. We are the temple to which He comes; we are His flesh. We are the flesh on which the dove settled, representative of the spirit of God. He was the sacrificial goat which was killed, and we are the scapegoat anointed with His blood and sent into the wilderness.

Psa 5:3 My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.

1Co 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

Mat 3:16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:

Son 5:2 I sleep, but my heart waketh: it is the voice of my beloved that knocketh, saying, Open to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled: for my head is filled with dew, and my locks with the drops of the night.

Lev 16:10 But the goat, on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat, shall be presented alive before the LORD, to make an atonement with him, and to let him go for a scapegoat into the wilderness.
Lev 16:21 And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness:
Lev 16:22 And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land not inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness.

Joh 8:3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,
Joh 8:4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.
Joh 8:5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

We are the temple as has already been established. Jesus came to our temple to teach us in the morning. These scribes and Pharisees are also us, AND… the woman is us. We are all the players in this teaching that Jesus came into our temple to teach us. We are set before The LORD by our Babylonian doctrine and accused of adultery by the law of the flesh. We are in a sense accusing ourselves of adultery by our own supposed freewill, which IS ADULTERY AGAINST GOD. When we get carnal understanding of the law, we accuse ourselves and others of doing things outside God’s will by our own freewill, independent and separate from God. This doctrine is the reason for the law of the flesh, to show us we are not free, but we turn it upside down and claim it as ours.

Joh 8:6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.

We do this to tempt our new man, to accuse Him of saying that we agree with sin and that if we do not do swift judgment in the flesh upon our flesh by religous floggings, then we are excusing sin. Then we turn around and compare our religous sacrifice to others’ religous sacrifice to make sure that everyone’s done enough to satisfy our man of sin, and thereby justify ourselves. We do not see sin as a goad that pricks us by The LORD, but a lack of righteous freewill judgment that is in need of instant punishment in the flesh by man. This is the sin of spiritual adultery that Christ is teaching about in the temple, of which temple we are. We are the Pharisees and Scribes who are the adulterous woman being taken in adultery, IN THE VERY ACT. It is a religous way of justifying ourselves by religous doctrine and thereby making ourselves right in the eyes of God, according to fleshly law. It is a religous way of justifying ourselves by religous doctrine and thereby making ourselves right in the eyes of God. Put another way, it is like having:

1Co 13:2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
1Co 13:3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

All the religous teachings and doctrines we formulate in our minds, no matter how good they may seem, are nothing but filth in the eyes of God.

Isa 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

Joh 8:7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
Joh 8:8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

The truth of these words to our religous men is a death blow to the bruising of the head of the serpent.

Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

With each truth the old man is put to death daily. This is an “aorist” tense statement to us. It is an is, was will be statement of how we are to live our lives as The Christ.

1Co 15:31 I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.

The woman is the adulterous church we are, have been and will be as more come to see themselves in this light. As we come to see ourselves as the woman, we come to see ourselves as the religous leaders, and then we come to see ourselves as the Christ that administers to both, one to life and one to death.

2Co 2:16 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?

The stones that we wanted to throw at the woman are thrown at us in the words of Christ; “he that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.” This is the millstone that is CAST into our sea, that violently throws Babylon down. That makes the religous leaders the woman who has been caught in adultery, in the very act, and by bringing her before Christ in an accusatory fashion, they become her. This is the reason for this whole lesson.

Rev 18:21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all (this is the true casting stones).

Joh 8:9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

This is how the religous men in us are quieted – by truth. This is how we put coals of fire on the heads of our religous enemies.

Rom 12:20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.
Rom 12:21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

Them going out from before Him one by one is the spiritual application of the old testament’s ‘little by little’.

Deu 7:21 Thou shalt not be affrighted at them: for the LORD thy God is among you, a mighty God and terrible.
Deu 7:22 And the LORD thy God will put out those nations before thee by little and little: thou mayest not consume them at once, lest the beasts of the field increase upon thee.

Beginning from the eldest to the youngest is the spiritual application of removing those false doctrines we’ve held for years or that we’ve just learned until we see ourselves as just the Church and Christ.

Joh 8:10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?

When Christ in us is lifted up, we see none but ourselves as sinners in need of repentance. We don’t see the Pharisees or Scribes, separate and independent of ourselves. We begin to see them all as one within us. We see that we are the woman who is committing adultery against Christ BY BEING THE PHARISEES AND SCRIBES. We see that we were committing adultery by pointing out sin and thereby making ourselves righteous before God by killing it ourselves. We need not expose the sin of ourselves or others to the world. That’s God’s right, not ours. This is why Christ tells us that whatever doctrine in us makes us right before Him, let us use that doctrine to cast the first stone. We see no man after the flesh or we see that no man is able to make himself a sinner before God or not a sinner before God. THIS IS THE SIN of which Christ is speaking in the next verse.

Joh 8:11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

In our seeing of Christ as LORD we begin to understand that what we thought was ours is in fact the LORD’S. In seeing ourselves in this light, we see ourselves as the Pharisees and as the woman, and the adultery was spiritual, and it was against God. In seeing this truth He can then say, “neither do I condemn thee”, and by Him not condemning us DO WE SIN NO MORE. In the commandment of The LORD to this new woman, He makes a statement of fact in the spiritual, “GO AND SIN NO MORE.” The words “GO” and the word “SIN” are both in the present tense in this statement, which means they are a spoken reality, a statement of fact that covers the subject. IT IS A PROCLAMATION FROM THE KING AS A FACT. Below is a statement from the TVM;

When The LORD pronounces that He does not condemn her, it is her eyes being opened to truth and her seeing His sovereign hand in all that we see was, is and will be. Having this knowledge we can go away from how we saw ourselves to a new light where we “sin no more” in the spiritual. We know that we are still flesh and still sin, but he that is born of God does not sin in seeing themselves as a god, separate and independent from the True God.

1Jn 3:1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
1Jn 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God (the woman with her eyes open), and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
1Jn 3:3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure. (if we have this hope we purify ourselves [Php 2:12, 13] even as He Who purified us by this truth. If we do not have this truth, we commit sin, the sin that the Pharisees and scribes did to the woman and are the next verse.)
1Jn 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.
1Jn 3:5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.
1Jn 3:6 Whosoever ABIDETH in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.
1Jn 3:7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous (this doing righteousness is having the hope that He is The LORD of our lives making us clean from the sin of self-exaltation in literal sin or in literally thinking we cleanse ourselves from sins.).
1Jn 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning (saying they would not die and they would know good and evil. If they can know good and evil, they did not need God and this is the sin of self-righteousness). For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
1Jn 3:9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
1Jn 3:10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.

Joh 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

“I am the light of the world”, the world inside me, and everything that is created INSIDE ME AFTER THE LIGHT is created in the light. “He that followeth me” is that which is created after the light.

Gen 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

After this proclamation of the creation of light comes all the rest of the proclamations of creation in the light. The firmament, earth, seas, grass, fruit trees, sun, moon, stars, living creatures in the seas, winged fowl, cattle, creeping things, beasts, man and then woman. So when Christ says that he is the “light of our world”, He is saying that from the time of your illumination everything that follows will be created IN THE LIGHT….EVEN DARKNESS is light to God. Everything that is, was, will be is created after the proclamation, “let there be light”. This means we are able to praise God for the beasts that were created in us, that He created to drag us to the knowledge we now possess in the Light.

Isa 42:16 And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.

Psa 139:12 Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.

If we are worshipping God in truth, that He alone creates all things, good and evil, then we are following Him in all that is created in us and are walking in the light. If we think we are free moral spiritual beings able to make ourselves right with God, we are still in the darkness, and that darkness is BLINDING.

Joh 8:13 The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true.

Even the darkened Pharisee in me knows that I cannot bear witness of myself and that I need another witness to confirm who I am. But the religous man in me does not see the witness of my Father Who created me in the light, and God is the other witness. If God created my new man in the light, then it is a witness from my Father that what I am saying is true. I am the light of my world, and all that follows me shall not walk in darkness but shall have the light of this truth. Christ in me is creating my world, has created my world, and will create my world. I do not create my own world and witness to it as truth, but He creates it in me.

Joh 8:14 Jesus answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.

Though I am bearing record of myself, my witness is true because He Who gave me this light to bear record of myself is in itself a record of Him. We walk through this physical life, but we do not walk in this physical life. We have the Light that guides our way as each minute of each day is exposed by the Light which comes from our Heavens, and that Light is Christ. Christ in us exposes the earth as we walk after what He creates. There is no darkness because we see from the Light why everything is what it is. Not only are we eating from the Tree of knowledge of good and evil, but we are at the same time eating from the Tree of Life. As we walk we are told what is good and what is evil and thereby are we eating from the Tree that gives us life. The next verse tells us why we are eating from both.

Joh 8:15 Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.

The flesh judges the flesh unto condemnation or unto righteousness. Because the flesh is not spirit, it cannot discern the spirit and why it moves people to do what they do. The flesh can only judge by what it sees naturally, not what is spiritual. The Pharisees only saw the physical sin of the woman but could not see what Christ saw. The literal law of the flesh commanded such should be stoned to death, but what Christ brought out was that you cannot stone a spirit. The evil spirit in the Pharisees were committing adultery by trying to justify themselves by the death of the adulterous woman’s flesh. When Christ said, “you who are without sin cast the first stone,” He put to death the spirit at that time by spiritually stoning them with His words. Their words were spirit, and He saw them for who they were; spiritually doing the deeds of their father the devil. This is why His judgment of the spirit that was moving them was true. He did not judge their flesh. He judged the spirit that moved them.

Joh 8:16 And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.

His judgment is true because God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and truth. He is not judging the flesh because the flesh is seen as dead already, and you cannot judge a dead man but the spirit that existed in the dead man. The fruit that comes from the individual tree tells us of what sort it is and what causes the growth of that tree.

Joh 4:22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. (spiritual Jews, Gal 6:16)
Joh 4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
Joh 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

When Peter pulled Christ aside and rebuked Him for saying He was going to be killed, what was the spirit that moved him to make those statements? It was Satan. Satan was in the midst of Christ’s discples while they were in the flesh.

Mat 16:22 Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.
Mat 16:23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.

When James and John wanted to call down fire to consume those who would not receive Christ, what spirit drove them? Satan!

Luk 9:55 But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of.

The point being that we do not judge righteous judgment when we are being led of our father the Devil. The Devil thinks naturally for the things of the natural – flesh. The Spirit of our Father always judges spiritually, because all are led of one sort of spirit or other. This is why Paul, while hundreds of miles away, could say;

1Co 5:3 For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed,

He recognized the spirit that was leading, not only the man, but the congregation as a whole. He could be miles away and yet make a rightous judgment according to the Spirit of God which He followed by the Light in him. This made his testimony true because it had the witness of The Spirit of Christ. As Christ explains in the next few verses.

Joh 8:17 It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.
Joh 8:18 I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me.
Joh 8:19 Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Jesus answered, Ye neither know me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also.

They could not see the Spirit of His Father in Him. They could only see the outward actions of Him not consenting to the stoning of the woman. They only saw God in the flesh, as they according to the flesh understood the law. They only saw the righteousness of God by their works according to the law of the flesh. This is what Babylon represents – a religion that rules over the flesh by the outward works of the flesh according to what Babylon dictates according to the flesh as what is righteous.

Gen 11:4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

It does not comprehend that God creates the very evil that points to what is in the flesh and how it was made originally. It was not made righteous but unrighteous so that by the evil of the flesh could He then create a new creation that worshipped Him according to the truth. What is truth?

Joh 18:37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.
Joh 18:38 Pilate saith unto him, What is truth? And when he had said this, he went out again unto the Jews, and saith unto them, I find in him no fault at all.

Only those born of the Spirit can hear the words of truth from Christ because they are born again OF THE SPIRIT.

Joh 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Joh 3:4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?
Joh 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
Joh 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
Joh 3:7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

So what do those that are born of the spirit understand as truth? What is it that they hear that others don’t? They hear the Spirit of God, and they know where it comes from and where it is going.

Joh 3:8 The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.

This is what those born of the spirit hear as truth.

Rev 1:3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

Those who are born of the spirit hear the words of the prophesy of the whole bible and KEEP THE THINGS WRITTEN THEREIN. What is written therein? This is what is written within the born-again man.

Rev 9:20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:
Rev 9:21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

Those who are born again are killed by these Woes, by the horns and trumpets and all things that testify against the flesh. They hear this as truth and are killed and then born again. They begin to die daily to their works of their hands/flesh, which is worshipping the devilish idols of gold, silver, brass, stone, and wood of themselves, which can neither see God nor hear God. They repent of their murder of the Truth of who they are, the sorceries of worshipping themselves, the adultery of worshipping themselves, and the theft from God of His righteousness, claiming it as theirs. This is the Truth and the King for Whom we were born and for Whose purpose we were born. We hear the words of The Father of spirits because we are born again to follow those words.

Heb 12:9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?

Joh 8:20 These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the temple: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come.

Why was it important for this verse to point out WHERE Jesus spoke these words? Why was it important for us to know that He spoke from the “TREASURY IN THE TEMPLE”? Because the words He was speaking were the greatest treasure a man could ever have. He is THE TREASURE that resides in our temple.

Col 2:2 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;
Col 2:3 In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

When we find this Treasure, we want to die for it because death of the flesh is the life of the spirit.

Job 3:20 Wherefore is light given to him that is in misery, and life unto the bitter in soul;
Job 3:21 Which long for death, but it cometh not; and dig for it more than for hid treasures;
Job 3:22 Which rejoice exceedingly, and are glad, when they can find the grave?

Mat 13:45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:
Mat 13:46 Who, when he had found ONE PEARL of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

Joh 8:21 Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come.

Again – Joh 8:20 These words spake Jesus in the treasury, as he taught in the temple: and no man laid hands on him; for his hour was not yet come.

“No man laid hands on Him, for His hour was not yet.” No man was able to lay hold on Christ because they did not know Who He was, and He had not risen from the dead to indwell in anyone as yet. The laying on of their hands represents the understanding of what we have done and that it was us, the Priest who sacrificed Christ. We cannot lay hold on the sacrifice unless we are priests and none but the elect are priests. Only a priest can handle the sacrifice, lay hands on the sacrifice before they slaughter it. We are those that are given the privelege to lay our hands on the sacrifice, Christ, while we see we are the ones who have sacrificed Him.

Num 3:3 These are the names of the sons of Aaron, the priests which were anointed, whom he consecrated to minister in the priest’s office.

Exo 29:10 And thou shalt cause a bullock to be brought before the tabernacle of the congregation: and Aaron and his sons shall put their hands upon the head of the bullock.
Exo 29:11 And thou shalt kill the bullock before the LORD, by the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
Exo 29:15 Thou shalt also take one ram; and Aaron and his sons shall put their hands upon the head of the ram.
Exo 29:16 And thou shalt slay the ram, and thou shalt take his blood, and sprinkle it round about upon the altar.
Exo 29:19 And thou shalt take the other ram; and Aaron and his sons shall put their hands upon the head of the ram.
Exo 29:20 Then shalt thou kill the ram, and take of his blood, and put it upon the tip of the right ear of Aaron, and upon the tip of the right ear of his sons, and upon the thumb of their right hand, and upon the great toe of their right foot, and sprinkle the blood upon the altar round about.

We represent these priests who minister in the temple, and Christ is that High Priest. Christ is Aaron, and we are Aaron’s sons.

Heb 9:11 But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;

Rev 1:6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

Rev 5:10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

We are now priests of God and are living sacrifices that we sacrifice and present to the High Priest Christ. He has entered the holy of holies to make intercession for us, Israel. Before we can sacrifice for the rest of Israel, we must FIRST be cleansed, which is the first resurrection. The Christian world is the Levites who are given to us to do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation. The Christian world has spent many a decade searching and researching the scriptures coming up with the Strongs, Esword, lexicons, translations, and have been used by God to bring many people TO THE TEMPLE, Christ. They cannot take anyone further than that, and they cannot touch the holy things. But God has used them to bring all of us to the temple, albeit through hell-fire sermons. They still were used to service the tabernacle of the congregation.

Num 18:3 And they shall keep thy charge, and the charge of all the tabernacle: only they shall not come nigh the vessels of the sanctuary and the altar, that neither they, nor ye also, die.
Num 18:6 And I, behold, I have taken your brethren the Levites from among the children of Israel: to you they are given as a gift for the LORD, to do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation.

The priests were the ones that handled the actual sacrifice. They washed it, then they put their hands on its head and cut its throat, then they gutted it, separated it, and then they sprinkled the blood on the horns of the altar. Part of it was burnt in the temple as a offering to God, and part was burnt ouside the camp. It is important that we connect what happened to the sacrifices in the tabernacle and what happened to THE SACRIFICE, JESUS CHRIST, because they are the same and written FOR OUR ADMONITION, the elect.

Mat 26:7 There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat at meat.

Mat 26:12 For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my burial.

Exo 29:7 Then shalt thou take the anointing oil, and pour it upon his head, and anoint him.

The priests laid hands on the head of the sacrifice in the Old Testament, and it was fulfilled on the true Sacrifice in the New Testament.

Exo 29:15 Thou shalt also take one ram; and Aaron and his sons shall put their hands upon the head of the ram.
Exo 29:16 And thou shalt slay the ram, and thou shalt take his blood, and sprinkle it round about upon the altar.
Exo 29:17 And thou shalt cut the ram in pieces, and wash the inwards of him, and his legs, and put them unto his pieces, and unto his head.
Exo 29:18 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.

Mat 26:67 Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others smote him with the palms of their hands, (they laid their hands on him as Aaron and his sons did to the sacrifice in the tabernacle)

Christ is the first Ram, and we are the second.

Exo 29:19 And thou shalt take the other ram; and Aaron and his sons shall put their hands upon the head of the ram.
Exo 29:20 Then shalt thou kill the ram, and take of his blood, and put it upon the tip of the right ear of Aaron, and upon the tip of the right ear of his sons, and upon the thumb of their right hand, and upon the great toe of their right foot, and sprinkle the blood upon the altar round about.
Exo 29:21 And thou shalt take of the blood that is upon the altar, and of the anointing oil, and sprinkle it upon Aaron, and upon his garments, and upon his sons, and upon the garments of his sons with him: and he shall be hallowed, and his garments, and his sons, and his sons’ garments with him.

2Co 1:21 Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, is God;

Heb 1:9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

Act 5:41 And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name.

The blood was put upon the right ear of the High Priest Aaron/ Christ and his sons/us. This act symbolizes that Christ now hears us, and we can hear Him. It was also put upon the thumb of their right hand and the big toe of their right foot which represented that all we touch is cleansed, and everywhere we walk is cleansed.

We went over the fact that the Levites were to minister to the tabernacle and were a gift to the priests. When Judas came to the chief priests, it says he was ONE of the twelve like the levites were. Judas ministered to the priests like the Levites did to the priests when he gave of the first-born to them. Jesus Christ represented the Elect and was sacrificed for the Church, the wife of Christ. He stood in her place as if He were her, a female. When the Levites brought of the first that opened the womb to the priests to be vowed unto the ministering to the priests, the priests would pay them thirty shekels for the female offering. When Judas brought Christ to the Priests, the priests vowed to give him thirty pieces of silver for his offering of Christ. Christ stood in the place of His wife as though she were the first born sacrificed for the sins of the world.

Lev 27:4 And if it be a female, then thy estimation shall be thirty shekels.

Mat 26:14 Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests,
Mat 26:15 And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver.
Mat 26:16 And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.

When the Pharisees brought the woman to Christ to be stoned, He stood in her place because she represented His wife. Judas represented the Levites who ministered to the priests and brought the church to the priest to be sacrificed, but Christ took her place, and the priests laid their hands on Him and sacrificed Him. The Christian world today brings the woman to the priests (us) to be sacrificed, and we sacrifice them by opening their heavens to who they are in the eyes of their God. When one sees himself as God sees him, he is crucified in Christ, he is presented as a sacrifce in the Holy of holies by his High Priest, Jesus Christ. Judas was also sacrificed from the twelve disciples as the levites were sacrificed from the twelve tribes.

When Judas was sacrificed on a tree and was replaced by Matthias:

Act 1:26 And they gave forth their lots; and the lot fell upon Matthias; and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.

Joh 8:21 Then said Jesus again unto them, I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come.

What did Christ mean by “my way”? What is “my way”? It is a way that brings you to nothing, not something.

Job 19:8 He hath fenced up my way that I cannot pass, and he hath set darkness in my paths.
Job 19:9 He hath stripped me of my glory, and taken the crown from my head.
Job 19:10 He hath destroyed me on every side, and I am gone: and mine hope hath he removed like a tree.
Job 19:11 He hath also kindled his wrath against me, and he counteth me unto him as one of his enemies.
Job 19:12 His troops come together, and raise up their way against me, and encamp round about my tabernacle.
Job 19:13 He hath put my brethren far from me, and mine acquaintance are verily estranged from me.
Job 19:14 My kinsfolk have failed, and my familiar friends have forgotten me.
Job 19:15 They that dwell in mine house, and my maids, count me for a stranger: I am an alien in their sight.
Job 19:16 I called my servant, and he gave me no answer; I intreated him with my mouth.
Job 19:17 My breath is strange to my wife, though I intreated for the children’s sake of mine own body.
Job 19:18 Yea, young children despised me; I arose, and they spake against me.

Our religous old man cannot go the way of Christ in the flesh, because the old man wants to live, not die.

Joh 8:22 Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come.
Joh 8:23 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.
Joh 8:24 I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins.

We are from the flesh/beneath and our new man is from spirit/above. Our flesh is of this world, our new man is not. Our flesh shall die in sin because it is sin, but our new man will live because we are resurrected in Christ. We are the Pharisees and the woman, we are commiting physical adultery to show our spiritual adultery in the religous practices we do to make ourselves righteous. In the same manner we are both thieves on the cross with Christ in the middle, because He created both.

Luk 23:33 And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.

Luk 23:39 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.
Luk 23:40 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?
Luk 23:41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss.
Luk 23:42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.
Luk 23:43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.

We are both the old man that must die and the new man that dies daily as he sees himself railing against his LORD. We are the woman, who is spiritually committing adultery in the Pharisees and Scribes, we are both. We have two horns that look like a lamb but speak as a Dragon.

Rev 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

Christ is The Truth that shows us The Light and all that He created after He said, “let there be light”. Now He makes a proclamation, “go and sin no more” and that statement is in;

“The present tense and represents a simple statement of fact or reality viewed as occurring in actual time.”

We are the holy priests of God after we see we are unholy. We cannot become holy before God unless we have seen ourselves as unholy. Then as the woman, we are told, “go and sin no more”.
