Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

February 7 - Evening

"Aaron’s sons Nadab and Abihu took their censers, 
put fire in them and added incense; and they offered unauthorized fire before the Lord, contrary to his command. So fire came out from the presence of the Lord and consumed them, and they died before the Lord. Moses then said to Aaron,
“This is what the Lord spoke of when he said:

'Among those who approach me
    I will be proved holy;
in the sight of all the people
    I will be honored.’

Aaron remained silent."

- Leviticus 10:1-3

Unauthorized Worship Judged    

Shortly after their ordination, a mere 2 chapters in the book of Leviticus, two of Aaron’s sons, Nadab and Abihu, decide to add a little of their own flavor, aroma or ideas to the Tabernacle ritual that God prescribed in great detail with great signs and manifestations to support his authenticity. It may be that Nadab and Abihu had some ideas or fragrances that they remembered from the Egyptian’s religious rituals. Maybe Nadab and Abihu mixed some pagan incense formula that was associated with another deity. Did they offer it at the wrong time of day? Did they bring fire from some other source than the coals of the altar (Lev. 16:12). Whatever Nadab and Abihu brought into the worship service and added to the instructional rituals performed in the tabernacle, the Lord was angry.

Nadab and Abihu were with Moses, Aaron and the seventy elders when they went up Mount Sinai (Ex. 24:1) and they had been the object of the consecration and ordination process of the priesthood of Aaron (Lev. 8). But, in here in Leviticus 10 it says Nadab and Abihu offered “strange fire which he had not commanded them.” In Exod. 30:33, Leviticus 22:12 and Numbers 16:40 the word “strange,” or the Hebrew word zar, is used to identify people who are not qualified to function in the tabernacle because they are not priests. This would mean the coals came from an unauthorized source or the mixture of incense was an unauthorized combination. Their actions produced an offering of incense that was not been commanded by the Lord. Nadab and Abihu’s actions were not part of the teaching rituals or the atoning work of the priests

It is speculated that Nadab and Abihu were drunk since right after the Lord forbids Aaron the privilege of mourning the loss of his two eldest sons, Aaron is given a command,

“Drink no wine or strong drink, you or your sons with you, when you go into the tent o meeting, lest you die.” (Lev. 10:8-11)

  Christian Quote from Church History

"History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a spiritual awakening to overcome the moral collapse, or a progressive deterioration leading to ultimate national disaster.”

- George Douglas MacArthur

Something to Ponder??
The concept of the church building did not come from scripture. The early church met in homes. The Jews met in synagogues. Romans and Greeks met in basilicas. Europe met in glorious gothic buildings. The Egyptians built steeples that they called obelisk, while Athens created the Ionic, Doric and Corinthian columns for their meeting places. Yet today the church tries to follow the Bible, while continuing to meet like pagans in pagan styled meeting places that they call “Christian” and “ecclesial.”
Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information
Tereo (Gr) – Keep Eng) - tereo is Greek word that means "to attend to carefully," "to take care of," "to guard," and "to observe." Tereo is used 71x. In John 17:15 Jesus asks the father to tereo from
the evil one. In First John tereo is used to refer to the believer "keeping" the commandments of God. (1 John 2:3-5; 3:22; 3:24; 5:3.)

A limestone quarry that was used to create the large Herodian ashlar blocks for the Temple Mount has been discovered 2 miles NW of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Coins and pottery found at this site date it to the days of Herod’s construction of the Temple.

Confession to Action   Facts and Information
Do I seek a right standing with the Lord or do I seek wealth and blessings from the Lord?
I will seek to honor the Lord in my actions and my daily pursuit of his will.

"Two things I ask of you, O Lord; do not refuse me before I die; Keep falsehood and lies far from me; give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread. Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you and say, 'Who is the Lord?' Or I may become poor and steal, and so dishonor the name of my God." - Proverbs 30:7-9
