Household Morality

February 20, 2021

 

[This may seem a strange lesson for our group since most of us live alone or just a spouse, but we all have family and we all live in neighborhoods with children and we should be open to any opportunity to help a victim be they the victim or the perpetrator. Why the perpetrator? They are in need of salvation as well as the victim. In today’s shattered families households do not always consist of only blood relations. So when we are looking at these scriptures we need to keep that in mind. In a household claiming to be followers of Yahweh, and that is the only households we can speak to regarding scripture, there may be step, foster, and half relations but all will be in a legal position of family as recognized by the community we live in. If we are speaking to those outside the household of faith then a proper household would be as follows:

 

Oldest adult male

Adult female chosen by leading male

Children by age

in-laws

non-related persons

 

Still Yahweh is the father of all so even those who do not recognize Him as their head cannot change the reality of who is ultimately in charge. Yahweh gave mankind free choice. But He did not remove the consequences from the bad choices. The majority of mankind starts life in a family or are added to a family by fostering or adoption. Those that are fostered or adopted have the same rights and responsibilities as those related by blood and marriage.]

 

(Lev 18:1-4 KJV) And Yahweh spake unto Moses, saying, 18:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, I am Yahweh your Almighty. 18:3 After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I bring you, shall ye not do: neither shall ye walk in their ordinances. 18:4 Ye shall do my judgments, and keep mine ordinances, to walk therein: I am Yahweh your Almighty.

 

[Twice Yahweh reminds us He is our Almighty, Most High Yahweh and therefore has a right to demand our obedience. Yahweh uses the family as an example of the heavenly family, therefore it must be pure of defiling influences.]

 

(Lev 18:5 KJV) Ye shall therefore keep My statutes, and My 2 judgments: which if a man do, he shall live in them: I am Yahweh.

 

[There is no shadowy should there is a demand ye shall.]

 

(Lev 18:6-9 KJV) None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness: I am Yahweh. 18:7 The nakedness of thy father, or the nakedness of thy mother, shalt thou not uncover: she is thy mother; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness. 18:8 The nakedness of thy father's wife shalt thou not uncover: it is thy father's nakedness.

 

Nakedness H6172 H6168; nudity, literally (especially the pudenda) or figuratively (disgrace, blemish): - nakedness, shame, unclean (-ness).

Pudenda external genitals, especially a womans

 

[Near of kin would probably be a first cousin, but maybe a second cousin, aunts and uncles, and minor foster children. This would definitely cover grandparents. The father, in today’s world could be a step father, but is definitely the head male in the household, married to the mother or not. The mother is the blood or step or foster female known as the head of the household, or any female the head male has as their mate.]

 

(Lev 18:9 KJV) The nakedness of thy sister, the daughter of thy father, or daughter of thy mother, whether she be born at home, or born abroad, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover.

 

[This would include any minor or afflicted female placed in the home under the protection of the family and also step and foster relations.]

 

(Lev 18:10 KJV) The nakedness of thy son's daughter, or of thy daughter's daughter, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover: for theirs is thine own nakedness.

 

[We need to realize that these rules apply to females seeking male attention as well as males. Here is the protection for the grandchildren of blood, adoption, or fostering.]

 

(Lev 18:11 KJV) The nakedness of thy father's wife's daughter, begotten of thy father, she is thy sister, thou shalt not uncover her nakedness.

 

[Step or foster are not mentioned still they are to have the same protection as one born in the household and are therefore assumed rather than named.]

 

(Lev 18:12-13 KJV) Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father's sister: she is thy father's near kinswoman. 18:13 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother's sister: for she is thy mother's near kinswoman.

 

(Lev 18:14 KJV) Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father's brother, thou shalt not approach to his wife: she is thine aunt.

 

[Both sides of the family are covered, maternal and paternal. In Torah the statement “they shall be one flesh” {Gen.2.21-25} is literal. It is a prime necessity if they are to have a set-apart, wholly, complete family.

 

(Lev 18:15-17 KJV) Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy daughter in law: she is thy son's wife; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness. 18:16 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy brother's wife: it is thy brother's nakedness. 18:17 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter, neither shalt thou take her son's daughter, or her daughter's daughter, to uncover her nakedness; for they are her near kinswomen: it is wickedness.

 

[The next generation is also protected.]

 

(Lev 18:18 KJV) Neither shalt thou take a wife to her sister, to vex her, to uncover her nakedness, beside the other in her life time.

 

[If two brothers married two sisters and the one brother died the living brother cannot take the sister-in-law to raise up a child in name of the dead brother as long as his wife is alive.]

 

(Lev 18:19 KJV) Also thou shalt not approach unto a woman to uncover her nakedness, as long as she is put apart for her uncleanness.

 

[There are medical reasons for this prohibition, but the fact that Yahweh spoke should be enough to gain willing obedience. Medically speaking it is possible for a pregnancy to take place even then.]

 

(Lev 18:20 KJV) Moreover thou shalt not lie carnally with thy neighbour's wife, to defile thyself with her.

 

[Here is the problem – defilement! We know enough now about DNA to know a woman’s changes with each sex partner and a males DNA is effected but not as telling. Yahweh set His people apart and all Torah enforces that separation from the world at large. Our food, our worship, our life style, as well as sexual practices should set us apart from the world. We are to be perfect, another word for complete. If we defile ourselves how can we hope to be complete rather than shattered? Remember when you defile someone else you defile yourself as well.]

 

(Lev 18:21 KJV) And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy Almighty: I am Yahweh.

 

[Abortion – the offering of our children to the god of convenience.]

 

(Lev 18:22-23 KJV) Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. 18:23 Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion.

 

[Abomination and confusion – the result of sexual sin.]

 

(Lev 18:24-25 KJV) Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: 18:25 And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomit out her inhabitants.

 

[Our land is in the process of cleansing because of the sexual sins we lawfully engage in. Our families are destroyed. Our nation is bankrupt. Foreigners rule the land and they own our seaports and cities and much of our farm land. We have allowed our country to be destroyed from withing one un-Yahweh law at a time.]

 

(Lev 18:26-28 KJV) Ye shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you: 18:27 (For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;)18:28 That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you.

 

[This nation was inhabited by many Indian tribes whom we displaced but did not totally replace. In fact there has been for many years an upsurge of their religions beliefs and customs added to the Christian churches rituals. It seems we are to meet the same fate. Those who allow absorption will meet the same fates. This is not for racial purity but for spiritual purity. There were people groups that are marked to never be allowed in Yahweh’s assembly. Individual members of those groups are named as part of His household of faith. Individual’s within a cursed grouping all have personal choice!!!! They can come willingly into a covenant relationship with Yahweh.]

 

(Lev 18:29-30 KJV) For whosoever shall commit any one of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off among their people. 18:30 Therefore shall ye keep Mine ordinance, that ye commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that ye defile not yourselves therein: I am Yahweh your Almighty.

 

[Have you committed any of the sins mentioned here? If so there is still hope.]

 

(Rev 3:19KJV) As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me. 3:21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with Me in My throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with My Father in His throne. 3:22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

 

(1Jn 1:5-10 KJV) This then is the message which we have heard of Him, and declare unto you, that Almighty is light, and in Him is no darkness at all. 1:6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Yahshua Messiah His Son cleanseth us from all sin. 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1:10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.

 

(Mat 12:30-32) He that is not with Me is against Me; and he that gathereth not with Me scattereth abroad. 12:31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Set-apart Spirit shall not be forgiven unto men. 12:32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Set-apart Spirit it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.

 

[Chastisement is a gift – it calls to our attention that we have strayed from the path of righteousness. Sometimes it is not our unrighteousness but the actions of one of those we fellowship with that has brushed off on us by fellowship and sullied our walk Not that you are committing the sin, but that you are in agreement with the one who is sinning. It still calls for repentance and a request for forgiveness. There is no true repentance if there is no acknowledgment of sin on the sinners part. Just ceasing to commit the sin is not enough – there must be a heart acknowledgment that a sin has been committed – that the act was a choice of ours – ownership of the sin must be acknowledged so the tie can be cut. Failure to admit ownership leaves the door open for repeating the sin since it has not been recognized as sin by our heart. All sin except the sin of assigning evil intent or evil action to the Set-apart Spirit will be washed away by the application of Yahshua’s blood followed by baptism. Absolutely the only way to live a life of heart joy and freedom from guilt.

My continued fellowship with my disobedient blood and spiritual sons and daughters is proof of that. If they do not watch their mouths and we are working together on a regular basis and I hit my thumb, so to speak, my own past vocabulary will come forth. Because I have a covenant relationship with Yahweh and Yahshua it is sin and needs to be repented of!

Do not get we wrong – all sin, by all people is still a sin and needs to be repented of , set aside, seen as sin; but Yahweh’s people must repent. Acknowledge the sin, put it away from them, and return to obedience to Torah and lawfulness before Yahweh. This is done through the covering of Yahshua’s blood. You can be baptized, study, submit, etc., but if your heart isn’t in it, it is for nothing.
