WHAT DOES DEFILE MEAN?

Definition- To make impure that which is pure.

I. OLD TESTAMENT CAUSES OF IMPURENESS

1. Child Birth ( Lev 12:2-Cool
2. Leprosy ( Lev 13:3, 44-46)
3. Bodily Discharge ( Lev 15:1-15)
4. Copulation ( Lev 15:17)
5. Menstruation ( Lev 15:19-33)
6. Touching The Dead ( Lev 21:1-4, 11)

The Old Testament causes of impurity were all physical causes of defilement.
In the Old Testament we were under a physical dispensation to expose our immoralities,
the laws were created for the lawless.

But now we are under a Spiritual dispensation thanks to Jesus Christ dieing on the cross.
God knew that we could never be perfect again in our flesh after Adam and Eve's sin so
he freed is through the sacrifice of his son. ( John 3:16)

Lets read Jerm. 32:34

God did not want us defiled spiritually since we had already lost our battle with our flesh in the garden
He doesn't want us to physically worship or spiritually worship false idols- this can include money,
fortune, fame, humans, animals, etc.
He doesn't want the human sacrifice of children to false Gods either, this can be spiritually but not
instilling Christ in them. He didnt want worship of Molech a false God...Or any of todays gods.....
All these things are the root causes of the Old Testament curses and wrath of God that came then!

Today we are under Christ's Covenant, the New Testament Church so we are to draw spiritual morals
from the past mistakes in the old testament and apply them with the new testament commands.
Today we are defiled by:

1. OUR CONSCIOUS- 1 Cor 8:7
* We shouldnt do what feels wrong to us, or doesnt sit well with us.
* We shouldnt cause others to do things that feel uncomfortable to them either.

2. FELLOWSHIP - Heb 12:15
* We are to take care of each other spiritually by holding each other accountable.
* We are not to cause others to sin, or cause them to do things that are wrong.

3. FLESH- Jude 8
* We are not to live immoral lives
* We are not to serve flesh
* We are not to claim to know or have control over our dreams
* We are not to defy authority
* We are not to be scoffers of angels

4. HANDS- Mark 7:2
* We are not to partake in physical pagan rituals
* We are to care about our hygiene as Christians
* We are not to let our hands commit immoral or sinful acts!
