The resurrection is the pinnacle of Christianity, as Paul said, "If the dead are not raised, Let us eat and drink, for, tomorrow, we die." The adversary, along with the Christian Church has nullified this hope by replacing it with, "When our body dies, we are with Jesus," making the resurrection and the New Earth obsolete, thereby creating a new doctrine, as did the prophet, Aaron, when he made his calf for the people. All the people, who have died, are asleep, awaiting Christ's return. For some, they will receive a glorified immortal body, while others will eventually be resurrected to be thrown into the Lake of Fire, the Second Death.
Goliath was small compared to Yahweh's might! Our problems are small compared to the Might of Yahweh. "What, then, shall we say to a these things? If God is for us, who shall be against us? He, at least, who his own Son did not spare, but in behalf of us all delivered him up, how shall he not also, with him, all things upon us in favour bestow" (Rm. 8:31-32)?
The communications from Yahweh are through the spirit we have received. "For, as many as by Yahweh’s spirit are being led, the same, are Yahweh’s sons,— For ye have not received a spirit of servitude, leading back into fear, but ye have received a spirit of sonship, whereby we are exclaiming—Abba! Oh Father! The Spirit itself, beareth witness together with our spirit that we are children of Yahweh" (Rom. 8:14-16)
Complaisance and Compromise corrupts Yahweh's will, as is done in the Church today. All pastors would disapprove of Aaron compromising with the people to build them a idol, but these same pastors are following in his paths with compromises in the Word of Yahweh. Become a Moses and refuse to bend to compromise!
Choosing Life or Death, Blessing or Cursing is our ever day choices.
Ahab, a wicked ruler, also had some good in his life, which Yahweh used to help Israel and Judah. Generals in his army, such as Obadiah and Jehu, also were instrumental in Yahweh's plans. The lesson being, good and semi-good people can be working amongst evil company. https://www.blueletterbible.org/lang/lexicon/lexicon.cfm?Strongs=H256&t=KJV
Yahweh punished rebellion by giving the person leprosy, such as was done to Miriam, Uzziah and Gehazi; leprosy resulted in them being banned from the Temple. Miriam repented and was healed while Uzziah and Gehazi must not have repented. "That ye were to strip off—as regardeth the former behaviour—the old man, who corrupteth himself according to his deceitful covetings, And were to be getting young again in the spirit of your mind, And were to put on the man of new mould, who, after God, hath been created in his truthful righteousness and loving kindness" (Eph. 4:22-24).
1Ki 17:12, 14 And she said—By the life of Yahweh, thy God, verily I have not a cake, only a handful of meal in the jar, and a little oil in the cruse...that we may eat it—and die...For, thus, saith Yahweh, God of Israel, The jar of meal, shall not waste, and, the cruse of oil, shall not fail,—until the day that Yahweh giveth rain upon the face of the ground.
The blow must fall; for the wages of sin is death, and without the shedding of blood there is no remission. But it falls on the substituted life. The dead covers the living. The living is ransomed, pardoned, set free. Such covering is essentially propitiatory covering; substitution is of its essence. Any possible abuse of this fundamental Hebrew concept; will be averted by doing careful and equal justice to the entire Levitical ritual. The offerer consents to the substitution ; and by himself or his representative takes an essential part in the transfer of the penalty of the sin which he confesses. Man consents; Yahweh consents. The substitutionary death is, granted by Yahweh: it is accepted by man. It is accepted under the solemn stipulation that the spared life shall be wholly consecrated to the holy and merciful Yahweh who brings near this costly salvation. One thing is wanting in the ritual the consent of the substitute. Nay; a second thing is missing, adequacy of value in the substituted. Be it so! Then when a substitute shall appear who shall willingly bear the sin of the world, and be worthy to bear it; and Yahweh consents and ordains; and man consents and accepts; then the whole Ideal of Propitiatory Covering will be complete. It remains for the World and. for the Individual to carry the matter to its practical consummation.
