15 And if ye shall despise my statutes, or if your soul abhor my judgments, so that ye will not do all my commandments, but that ye break my covenant:
16 I also will do this unto you; I will even appoint over you terror, consumption, and the burning ague, that shall consume the eyes, and cause sorrow of heart: and ye shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it.
17 And I will set my face against you, and ye shall be slain before your enemies: they that hate you shall reign over you; and ye shall flee when none pursueth you.
This passage was just referenced on another prophetic web site. I totally agree with the prophecy and in the siting of this passage.
But, I also believe the Holy Spirit is conveying another promise through these scriptures.
IF you and/or a nation, as a whole, do not obey Him, and break His Covenant, then be assured, judgements will come upon those that are guilty, whether in this Life or, for sure, Eternity. I also submit the converse to be True. There are many wonderful promises throughout the Word to all that obey and keep His Covenant. When we read these verses regarding impending judgement on the disobedient our reaction should not be of fear, but of Rejoicing! Here are a few familiar passages regarding the believer and fear. “ His perfect Love casts out all fear. For you have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but you have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. He has not given us a spirit of fear, but of Love, Power, and a Sound Mind.” “Sound mind” includes the Greek word “sozo” which also means “save” and its root means “safe”.
For those who study Gemetria, look at the numbers in Lev. 26.15, 16, 17.
26 is the numerical total of the Hebrew letters for YHVH, The Covenant God.
15 = 3x5. 3 signifies “Divine”, and Gimmel, the 3rd letter of the Hebrew alphabet and its value is 3, that can represent the H.S. x 5=Grace, and Hey, the 5th letter of the Hebrew alphabet, that signifies the “breath of LORD”.
16 = 2x8. 2 signifies “more than enough, and is the number for Bet, the second letter in the Hebrew alphabet that represents The Son
x 8 = “new beginnings” and is the value of the Hebrew letter Chet. Ch(k)et’s ancient pictograph looks like a wall of fence. My thought is that the wall can also be a foundation on which to build upon, or create new beginnings, in one’s life. Chet is also the first letter for the Hebrew word for Life or Chayim.
17 = 10 + 7 as per the Hebrew way of numbering. 10 is the value for Yod, the 10th letter and the smallest letter. It is also the first letter of YHVH. 10 also signifies “completeness and order”. 7 is the number of “completeness” and is the value of the Hebrew letter Zayin. Zayin means “sword” but its root means “nourishment, sustenance”.
“Leviticus” is the Septuagint’s title for the third book of the Pentatuch. Pulpit’s Commentary:
“Verse 1. - And the LORD called unto Moses. The first word of the verse, in the original Vayikra, meaning "and called," has been taken as the designation of the book in the Hebrew Bible. The title Leviticon, or Leviticus, was first adopted by the LXX. to indicate that it had for its main subject the duties and functions appertaining to the chief house of the priestly tribe of Levi. The word "and" connects the third with the second book of the Pentateuch. God is spoken of in this and in the next book almost exclusively under the appellation of "the LORD" or "Jehovah," the word "Elohim" being, however, used sufficiently often to identify the two names. Cf. Leviticus 2:13, 19:12. And spake unto him. The manner in which God ordinarily communicated with a prophet was by "a vision" or "in a dream;" but this was not the case with Moses; "My servant Moses is not so, who is faithful in all mine house; with him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently" (Numbers 12:8)”
This is a cursery study at best. I will not convey my interpretation of all of the above. The blessing comes from allowing the Holy Spirit to “teach you all things”. Jn 14.26(there are those numbers again!).
My point is, the Word of God is fathomless. I could say it’s like peeling an onion but that onion would need to be the size of the Universe, and then some, since the Universe was made THROUGH IT! . His Bride is being made ready. Our Beloved has many treasures and blessings laying in store for Her as She takes the time to search them out. Indeed, for our Beloved is the Living Word! Hallelujah!!
