Leviticus 5 and 1 Chronicles 29
In Leviticus 5 the sin of ignorance is because of the lack of diligence to properly prepare and that lack is due to a lack of wholeheartedness to love the LORD GOD. In 1 Chonicles 5 we see a wholeheartedness to love the LORD by preparing to build the house of God and acknowlledging that everything we are and have that is good came from to LORD to bless us in the first place. A lack of wholehearted love for God is a failure to see that God is the source of all good and not ourselves. This also relates back to the verse from yesterday that stated the reason why Israel did not obey the LORD.
Lev 5:1-2 (KJV)
1And if a soul sin, and hear the voice of swearing, and is a witness, whether he hath seen or known of it; if he do not utter it, then he shall bear his iniquity.2Or if a soul touch any unclean thing, whether it be a carcase of an unclean beast, or a carcase of unclean cattle, or the carcase of unclean creeping things, and if it be hidden from him; he also shall be unclean, and guilty.
Lev 5:4-5 (KJV)
4Or if a soul swear, pronouncing with his lips to do evil, or to do good, whatsoever it be that a man shall pronounce with an oath, and it be hid from him; when he knoweth of it, then he shall be guilty in one of these.5And it shall be, when he shall be guilty in one of these things, that he shall confess that he hath sinned in that thing:
1Chr 29:10-17 (KJV)
10Wherefore David blessed the LORD before all the congregation: and David said, Blessed be thou, LORD God of Israel our father, for ever and ever.11Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.12Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto all.13Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name.14But who am I, and what is my people, that we should be able to offer so willingly after this sort? for all things come of thee, and of thine own have we given thee.15For we are strangers before thee, and sojourners, as were all our fathers: our days on the earth are as a shadow, and there is none abiding.16O LORD our God, all this store that we have prepared to build thee an house for thine holy name cometh of thine hand, and is all thine own.17I know also, my God, that thou triest the heart, and hast pleasure in uprightness. As for me, in the uprightness of mine heart I have willingly offered all these things: and now have I seen with joy thy people, which are present here, to offer willingly unto thee.
Deut 29:3-4 (KJV)
3The great temptations which thine eyes have seen, the signs, and those great miracles:4Yet the LORD hath not given you an heart to perceive, and eyes to see, and ears to hear, unto this day.

Numbers 2 and Ezekiel 1
Between these 2 chapters is observed a hierarchy of order in the kingdom of God that is led by the Spirit of God and the voice of God. In Numbers 2 is the hierarchy and order of the camps of the children of Israel with the tabernacle in their midst. A cloud of God’s presence rises to lead them and they rise in a defined order as God’s armies to follow that leading as well as specific instructions from the voice of God communicating to Moses. In Ezekiel chapter 1 we have a hierarchy of order with the 4 super-intelligent beasts and the 4 wheels which are led by the Spirit of God and by the voice of God on the throne above the four super intelligent beasts. In this case the presence of the glory of God is withdrawn from the temple of God because of apostasy and rebellion against God in Ezekiel. God is calling his people in this hour to come into a specific order and hierarchy under the headship of Jesus Christ as never before in local assemblies. It is then that the Shekinah glory of God will come in our midst which will result in the ushering in of the kingdom of God upon the earth in the last days after the great harvest of souls and then the judgment of God is executed upon the world system.
Num 2:1-4 (KJV)
1And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,2Every man of the children of Israel shall pitch by his own standard, with the ensign of their father’s house: far off about the tabernacle of the congregation shall they pitch.3And on the east side toward the rising of the sun shall they of the standard of the camp of Judah pitch throughout their armies: and Nahshon the son of Amminadab shall be captain of the children of Judah.4And his host, and those that were numbered of them, were threescore and fourteen thousand and six hundred.
Num 2:17 (KJV)
17Then the tabernacle of the congregation shall set forward with the camp of the Levites in the midst of the camp: as they encamp, so shall they set forward, every man in his place by their standards.Num 2:32-34 (KJV)
32These are those which were numbered of the children of Israel by the house of their fathers: all those that were numbered of the camps throughout their hosts were six hundred thousand and three thousand and five hundred and fifty.33But the Levites were not numbered among the children of Israel; as the LORD commanded Moses.34And the children of Israel did according to all that the LORD commanded Moses: so they pitched by their standards, and so they set forward, every one after their families, according to the house of their fathers.
Ezek 1:10-12 (KJV)
10As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle.11Thus were their faces: and their wings were stretched upward; two wings of every one were joined one to another, and two covered their bodies.12And they went every one straight forward: whither the spirit was to go, they went; and they turned not when they went.
Ezek 1:19-20 (KJV)
19And when the living creatures went, the wheels went by them: and when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up.20Whithersoever the spirit was to go, they went, thither was their spirit to go; and the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels.
Ezek 1:25-27 (KJV)
25And there was a voice from the firmament that was over their heads, when they stood, and had let down their wings.26And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it.27And I saw as the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about.

Numbers 5 and Psalms 65 plus Ruth 3
This is about there being no ground for the enemy to bring a curse in Numbers 5, Psalms 65 and Ruth 3.
Num 5:12-15 (KJV)
12Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any man’s wife go aside, and commit a trespass against him,13And a man lie with her carnally, and it be hid from the eyes of her husband, and be kept close, and she be defiled, and there be no witness against her, neither she be taken with the manner;14And the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be defiled: or if the spirit of jealousy come upon him, and he be jealous of his wife, and she be not defiled:15Then shall the man bring his wife unto the priest, and he shall bring her offering for her, the tenth part of an ephah of barley meal; he shall pour no oil upon it, nor put frankincense thereon; for it is an offering of jealousy, an offering of memorial, bringing iniquity to remembrance.
Ps 65:1 (KJV)
1To the chief Musician, A Psalm and Song of David. Praise waiteth for thee, O God, in Sion: and unto thee shall the vow be performed.
Ps 65:3-4 (KJV)
3Iniquities prevail against me: as for our transgressions, thou shalt purge them away.4Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.

Genesis 5 and James 3
Both of these chapters are about ships and both of them are about the issues of the heart. Out of the abundance of the heart the month speaketh.
Gen 5:21-24 (KJV)
21And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah:22And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:23And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years:24And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.
Gen 6:2-4 (KJV)
2That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.3And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.4There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
Gen 6:5-9 (KJV)
5And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.6And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.7And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.8But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.9These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.
Gen 6:11-14 (KJV)
11The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.12And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.13And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.14Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.
