As in last weeks Torah Tazria which is closely associated with Metzora, Yeshua upholds the Torah
of Moshe and gives much glory to the priest and his anointing. This is because the priest has been
anointed by HaShem to deal with the diagnosis and curing of an affliction. When the infection is on
the mend then the priest will know how to recognize this. Equal offerings and thanks are given to
Ha-Shem at the cleansing rituals. Ha-Shem is showing people how to keep close to him after the
redemption from Egypt where evil human sacrifices and other abominations were being offered. Ha-
Shem does not require sacrifice for himself but rather knowing his creations, he makes a system of
healing and well being by bringing everyone to the Torah. The offerings for the poor are less than
others

  • 14:21 “But if he is poor and cannot afford so much, then he shall take one male lamb for a
    guilt offering to be waved, to make atonement for him, and a tenth of an ephah of fine flour
    mixed with oil for a grain offering, and a log of oil; 22 also two turtledoves or two pigeons,
    whichever he can afford. The one shall be a sin offering and the other a burnt offering. 23
    And on the eighth day he shall bring them for his cleansing to the priest, to the entrance of
    the tent of meeting, before the Lord.

Verses 21-32 deal with the poor persons cleansing. These rituals were to be held around the
sanctuary which is not in existence. We have doctors and medical services to assist us and of
course the laws of nature and the Torah will play great parts if we seek the Torah and its other
teachings that we can uphold and are given to uphold

  • 14:32 This is the law for him in whom is a case of leprous disease, who cannot afford the
    offerings for his cleansing.”

House Tzara'at: The land of Canaan was dispossessed to the Hebrews because they fell from the
Torah, and currently live in the diaspora. The Zionist state of Israel is under fascist control or
controlled by the Jesuits and the Vatican, and so not the promised land which was given to the
Abrahamic covenant. To keep Torah is commanded to all who seek the truth and the return will be
for the Aaronic bloodline as a shining light to the nations. Ha-Shem states that it is he who causes
an affliction and this case on the house of a Hebrew. It seems when at first he wishes to give a
warning it is not specifically harmful to the human, his surroundings and it is up the person to see a
sign and do something about it before it affects the person. Most prominently through the teachings
concerning Tzara'at, Ha-Shem speaks to both Moshe and Aaron as opposed to just Moshe. The
priests (Kohen) are very involved with the diagnoses and observation of the afflictions

  • 14:33 The Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, 34 “When you come into the land of
    Canaan, which I give you for a possession, and I put a case of leprous disease in a house
    in the land of your possession, 35 then he who owns the house shall come and tell the
    priest, ‘There seems to me to be some case of disease in my house.’

Verses 36-54 considers the course of action to the priest regarding the cleansing and assessing
an affected house. The eruption can be scrapped and stones replaced for another assessment
before the house is still found to be unclean and then torn down

Genital Discharges: promiscuity was a pagan culture, sex orgies and immorality. The Torah seems
to respond to the Egyptian slavery and the manner of cleansing the people into the healthiest of
practices to serve the creation. However even in the normal course of living discharges can exist
and it is almost the impossible to present oneself as clean

  • 14:15 The Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, 2 “Speak to the people of Israel and say
    to them, When any man has a discharge from his body, his discharge is unclean. 3 And this
    is the law of his uncleanness for a discharge: whether his body runs with his discharge, or
    his body is blocked up by his discharge, it is his uncleanness. 4 Every bed on which the one
    with the discharge lies shall be unclean, and everything on which he sits shall be unclean

All contact concerning his discharge cause uncleanness

  • 15:5 And anyone who touches his bed shall wash his clothes and bathe himself in water
    and be unclean until the evening. 6 And whoever sits on anything on which the one with the
    discharge has sat shall wash his clothes and bathe himself in water and be unclean until
    the evening. 7 And whoever touches the body of the one with the discharge shall wash his
    clothes and bathe himself in water and be unclean until the evening.

Intercourse is not a sin, the Torah teaches that the discharge of semen from a man requires that
he cleanse himself whether done through intercourse or otherwise. Likewise any material that is or
was in contact

  • Lev 15:16 “If a man has an emission of semen, he shall bathe his whole body in water and
    be unclean until the evening. 17 And every garment and every skin on which the semen
    comes shall be washed with water and be unclean until the evening. 18 If a man lies with a
    woman and has an emission of semen, both of them shall bathe themselves in water and
    be unclean until the evening.

Water Cleanses: water is the cleansing resource. The Torah is also likened to water as in life itself
and indeed internal life as Ha-Shem is eternal...as stated above and in Leviticus. Under pagan
Roman administrations such as is the world through the western powers, then certainly sexual
immorality is rife. The relationship in the Torah is regarding a man and a woman who are lying
together, and is not saying that that relationship is unclean but rather the results of intercourse
require minimal cleansing. Also a discharge can come about without intercourse in the nature of
things that were created

  • 15:25 “If a woman has a discharge of blood for many days, not at the time of her menstrual
    impurity, or if she has a discharge beyond the time of her impurity, all the days of the
    discharge she shall continue in uncleanness. As in the days of her impurity, she shall be
    unclean. 26 Every bed on which she lies, all the days of her discharge, shall be to her as the
    bed of her impurity. And everything on which she sits shall be unclean, as in the
    uncleanness of her menstrual impurity. 27 And whoever touches these things shall be
    unclean, and shall wash his clothes and bathe himself in water and be unclean until the
    evening.

Eternal Life: Ha-Shem is eternal and likewise the Torah is eternal. Cleansing and bringing
ourselves to Ha-Shem through the Torah is constant. For gentiles to be part of Biblical Israel and
reconcile with the Abrahamic Covenant...a Holy Priesthood then observance of the ordinances and
Torah will cause very little in the way of needs to be treated for such afflictions. Individual thinking
gives us instructions how to sty close to Ha-Shem

  • Lev 15:31 “Thus you shall admonish the people of Israel from their uncleanness, lest they
    die in their uncleanness by defiling my tabernacle that is in their midst.”

Baruch Ha-Shem
Carrying on from last weeks Parshah, we now read about the cleansing process once the afflicted party is cured
from the Tzara'at. As the passage above concludes, the quarantined person is outside of the camp and so is
brought to a place where the priest will meet him. Likewise the priest is taken to a suitable meeting place and not
inside the tabernacle.

  • 14:3 and the priest shall go out of the camp, and the priest shall look. Then, if the case of leprous disease
    is healed in the leprous person, 4 the priest shall command them to take for him who is to be cleansed
    two live clean birds and cedar wood and scarlet yarn and hyssop.

The leper or "quarantined" person is set apart for cleansing. It is difficult to know exactly why the rituals stated
above are required after the person has been cured...other than perhaps it is all to continually bring the person
before Ha-Shem regrading minimal sacrifice. It is all symbolic however for today, sacrifice is not required but
rather Torah and the healing of the laws of nature and our doctors. The person is sprinkled seven times with the
blood of one of the birds before being cleansed. Instructions again are quite precise and clear

  • 14:7 And he shall sprinkle it seven times on him who is to be cleansed of the leprous disease. Then he
    shall pronounce him clean and shall let the living bird go into the open field. 8 And he who is to be
    cleansed shall wash his clothes and shave off all his hair and bathe himself in water, and he shall be
    clean. And after that he may come into the camp, but live outside his tent seven days. 9 And on the seventh
    day he shall shave off all his hair from his head, his beard, and his eyebrows. He shall shave off all his
    hair, and then he shall wash his clothes and bathe his body in water, and he shall be clean

On the eighth day, again a number symbolic of a continuation after the completeness of the very G-dly number
seven. The levitical sacrifices now follow.  In the previous Torah portion Tazria we read that even good people can
become afflicted with this type of condition so it may not be so that the person has been punished by Ha-Shem for
any sin or crime, although the person has suffered. Maybe it is this suffering that is causing Ha-Shem to bring the
person back to him as a reminder of all things come from above and our actions are what is important  

  • 14:10 “And on the eighth day he shall take two male lambs without blemish, and one ewe lamb a year old
    without blemish, and a grain offering of three tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil, and one log of
    oil. 11 And the priest who cleanses him shall set the man who is to be cleansed and these things before
    the Lord, at the entrance of the tent of meeting

Offerings: the previous offerings are again commanded for the release of the Tzara'at to be effective. They are
brought to the entrance of the tabernacle of the Holy of Holy's. It is indicative of the Torah for all and any person to
rid the soul and life of any biblically unclean practices or afflictions.

  • 14:12 And the priest shall take one of the male lambs and offer it for a guilt offering, along with the log of
    oil, and wave them for a wave offering before the Lord.

  • 13 And he shall kill the lamb in the place where they kill the sin offering and the burnt offering, in the place
    of the sanctuary. For the guilt offering, like the sin offering, belongs to the priest; it is most holy.

If all of the various forms of offerings are now to Ha-Shem, do we surmise that the individual has committed all of
these sins that they are called for

  • 14:19 The priest shall offer the sin offering, to make atonement for him who is to be cleansed from his
    uncleanness. And afterward he shall kill the burnt offering. 20 And the priest shall offer the burnt offering
    and the grain offering on the altar. Thus the priest shall make atonement for him, and he shall be clean.

The right to live and be a true follower of HaShem is not exclusive to the rich and powerful. Being poor likewise as
we are reading may also be spiritually or morally poor which could relate to monetary rich people.

  • Lev 14:21 “But if he is poor and cannot afford so much, then he shall take one male lamb for a guilt
    offering to be waved, to make atonement for him, and a tenth of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil for a
    grain offering, and a log of oil; 22  also two turtledoves or two pigeons, whichever he can afford. The one
    shall be a sin offering and the other a burnt offering. 23  And on the eighth day he shall bring them for his
    cleansing to the priest, to the entrance of the tent of meeting, before the Lord.
