Welcome to Venom Removal Series Leviticus 4. The previous chapter (Lev Ch. 11), had information about defilement of God’s people by eating unclean foods (click here). We observed that in the New Testament, it was made clear that nothing that we eat (whether unclean food or medicines or anything) defiles the human body. These Old Testament instructions only served to teach God’s people to stay away from environments that lead us into the temptation of sin.
The Gospel in Woman having a Childbirth (Lev 12)
Now in chapter 12, of the book of Leviticus, we have yet another strange idea that a woman who gives birth to a male or female child is declared unholy for seven and fourteen days respectively. In the case of a male child, the woman was to be impure for seven days, and in the case of a female child, she is to be impure for two weeks. This idea appears weird because we have scriptures that tell us otherwise.
The Confusion Cleared
In Genesis, we read that it was God who blessed man to become fruitful and in psalms, we read that children are a heritage of the Lord (c.f. Gen 1:28, Psalms 127:3). On the contrary not being able to bear children was considered a curse from God (see Deut 7:14, I Sam 1:6).
If that be so, then how can giving birth to a child be a reward of the lord and also a sin at the same time? These seemingly contradictory passages are designed in the scriptures to make us pause and think. When we reread it again and again, in order to solve the seeming contradiction, we realize that clue is given in the preceding verses of chapter 11. God told them that coming in contact with dead corpse defiles human beings (v24, 28, 31, 39, Numbers 19:11).
So the point is clear that death and sin are linked together. Coming in contact with the dead is sinful in the sight of God. This makes us ponder that if a woman is declared as defiled when she comes in contact with her newborn baby, then certainly the newborn baby must be somehow dead in the sight of God. And this makes the picture clear as we know from New Testament that man is born spiritually dead. Paul says that death had entered mankind through Adam (Rom 5:12).
Our True State
Humanity died spiritually the day Adam ate the forbidden fruit (Gen 2:17). Since that day man has been a progenitor of death and sin (Eph 2:5). We are all sinful humans, born spiritually dead (Eph 4:18, Luke 15:24). Only Christ the true eternal life can quicken and revive us (Eph 2:1, 5:14).
Then we read in the 3rd verse of Leviticus 12 that such a spiritually dead “newborn baby” was to be made sanctified on the eighth day by circumcision (Lev 12:3). This we know is interpreted as putting off the body of flesh (Col 2:11). When he takes baptism then we die to our old sinful nature and become truly alive, sanctified in the sight of God (Col 2:12). Thus Leviticus 12:3 foretells human salvation through putting off old nature and getting resurrected in Christ (c.f. Lev 12:3, Rom 4:11, 12). Leviticus 12:6-8 is about the atonement of sins by sacrificing.
For further understanding check out 1 Cor 7:14.
Leprosy and the Gospel (Lev 13,14)
Leviticus chapter 13 & 14 gives detailed instruction for the disease of leprosy. Because of the laws of Leviticus 13,14, a leprous man was considered as one who is condemned and cursed by God (see Num 12, II King 5:27, II Chronicles 26:19-21). Just like the defilement spread by touching the dead bodies, so did leprosy. Next, we read that a person found to be infected with leprosy was to be carried out of the camp of Israel, and his garments spotted with leprosy to be rent (Lev 13:45,46).
He was supposed to accept that he is unclean (v45). Some of the lepers who received healing were to offer sacrifice, be washed in waters, and then reconciled when the priest pronounces him justified/clean (Lev 14). Another noteworthy mention was that leprosy was so contagious that it was supposed to spread not only from human to human but from human to every object whether animate or inanimate which came in its contact. It could spread to the house itself (Lev 14:35), walls (v37), stones (v40), wood (v45), even the mortar and clay used therein (14:42). Leprosy was so contagious that it even defiled clothes of woolen, linen, leather, warp, and woof (Lev 13:51-58).
The Saviour from our Sins
Those who get healed by the mercies of God, for them the priest was supposed to go the leper for the examination and not the vice-versa(14:3). The priest will then observe the healing of the leper, and offer sacrifice for him (14:4-6, 10-32). The Leper was to wash in water and was pronounced cleansed/justified (14:8-9).
The gospel aspects hidden in this are not hard for us to grasp. We who are infected with the disease of the heart (Jeremiah 17:9), and were cast away from the presence of God (alienated – Col 1:21), are declared just and clean by our high priest Jesus Christ, our Lord. We must wash with water and believe in the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus offered on our behalf. One day this world which is infected with the sins of Adam (Gen 3:17), will be burnt with fire. See this information encapsulated in the table below.
|Leprosy in Leviticus||New Testament Significance|
|Leprosy was contagious (Lev 5:3)||The sin that came to humanity from Adam has spread from Adam to all mankind (Rom 5:12, c.f. Lev 13:45, Isa 6:5 )|
|Were a plague and a condemnation from God||Those under sin are under the wrath of God (Eph 2:3)|
|Person suffering was to be carried out of the camp||Adam and all mankind infected with sin are removed away from the Garden of Eden and the presence of God|
|Those who were healed were healed by the mercies of God||It is God’s mercy who choose to heal us of our sins (John 15:16, I John 4:19, Mat 8:2-3)|
|Those on whom God showed mercy to heal were to wash their clothes and offer sacrifice.||We who are healed of sins are to wash in water baptism and believe in the sacrifice of Jesus|
|Those who refused to wash were to bear their iniquity (Lev 17:16)||Those who refuse the salvation offered by Jesus will bear their own iniquity|
|It spread to every object to houses, walls, stones, garments, etc||Sin spread not only to humans from Adam, but it subjected the entire earth under a curse (Rom 8:20, Gen. 3:17-19)|
|Garments infected to be broken and burnt (13:52,57, 14:45)||Old heavens and earth will be removed and burnt with fire (2 Pet 3:7, 12). We are to hate garments spotted with sin (Jude 1:23)|
Admin – are all these written based on revelations you personally received by reading the verses you have quoted?
Do you use any reference materials (books, printed materials, other media (audio or videos of others) or online content besides the Bible), for preparing this article?
Dear Anonymous ,
We tpm never tell our source from where we copy. It top secret. It because, if we tell people from where our saints copy messages from, then believers run to that pastor, that church. Then our control begin to loose. It starting point to loose big empire and tithes. So we never tell our source refference.
Take example of our beloved pastor T. U. Thomas. He copied from R T Kendall. But he never reveal his name. Why? It because our T U Pastor not wanting to giving credit to R T Kendall. Why should R T Kendal eat from our believers money. Our believers money only for buying tpm land.
This secret you keep with you only. Dont tell this psychological trick to common believers.
The Old Testament laws reveals the mind of God. They not only had spiritual significance it also showed simple common sense which we who are living today can easily understand. For every kind of body fluid and touching of dead body God said it brings defilement which would require separation followed by washing. God was teaching His people the principles of microbiology so that outbreak of sicknesses don’t happen.
There are 463 ARTICLES covered so far since the year 2016 and still a peculiar reader questions like this:

How should we answer this Anonymous reader?
The better answer could be ROMANS 12:1,2 that the following link explains in detail.
Whoever happens to study (not read) this clipping word by word, shall hence forth stop sending such queries in future.
This clipping if patiently watched till the end,the reader’s spiritual eyes will be opened
EE is a poonemite believer 🙂
Welcome poonemite to anti-tpmite group.
To the person who created this article and posted it – can we ask one question on one of the contents or information stated here?
In the second sentence of the third paragraph you had stated, “On the contrary not being able to bear children was considered a curse from God (see Deut 7:14, I Sam 1:6).”
Do these two verses referenced next to it (Deut 7:14 and 1 Sam 1:6) convey in any way that not being able to bear children is “a curse from God”? Whose views are stated here or who considers infertility or not having an offspring as a “curse”?
Please read this article https://www.crossroads.net/media/articles/infertility-is-not-a-curse
The Promise of Blessings and curses in the old testament, especially with Deut 28 and the rest is specifically applied ONLY for the children of Israel and should not be made to push onto the Gentile Church. Deut 7:14 is a blessing to be fruitful in the body and a lack of it is considered a curse in the context. Keep in mind that the context is to the Children of Israel and is not applicable to any Tom-Dick and Harry.
As far as 1 Sam 1:6 is concerned, It is clear that the LORD himself had closed the womb temporarily for a greater good. Sometimes, God pushes us to the extreme to bring in the desired result.
Unfortunately, churches like TPM Selectively take the promises to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Israel, etc, and apply them in today’s Churches and that has caused lots of confusion.
This article is not written to implicate any person in today’s church for being barren and equating that with the curse of God.
So, are you saying that,
1. Some or all of the promises to Abraham, Isaac or someone in the Old Testament are no longer relevant to today’s churches or people of this age?
The same thing that happened in 1 Samuel 1:6, cannot happen to any Tom-Dick and Harry or similar people today?
If a person that comes under the category of the children of Israel did not have any child, that was a “curse from God”, and for others (non-Israelites or people in the Gentile church) it’s not a “curse from God”?
Promises are between 2 parties and it’s applicable only for the ones involved.
There are 2 types of promises
Sadly people who do not care about scriptures take selective passages that they like and claim to be their promise. The Guy in the Pulpit is the real culprit in that circus.
For eg. Gen 12:1-3 says the following as God’s Promise to Abraham. This is a conditional promise if Abraham leaves his Fathers household and goes to the place where God shows him.
The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people, and your father’s household to the land I will show you.
2 “I will make you into a great nation,
and I will bless you;
I will make your name great,
and you will be a blessing.[a]
3 I will bless those who bless you,
and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
will be blessed through you.”[b]
I have heard umpteen preachers who claim the first portion of verse 3 as a promise for them and shout at the peak of their voices. They pluck out the portion out of the context and claim to be theirs. Sadly the laity is so ignorant that they too follow the passionate whipping of the Clergy. Do you think that God is obligated to the scripture twist made by the clergy and will fulfill the promise made to Abraham to any TOM DICK AND HARRY?
Based on the passages in Matthew 15:22-28 and Mark 7:25-30 – would you be able to say that God extended one of the promises “I am the Lord that healeth thee” to non-Jewish people who believed or had faith in Him or to people who diligently seek Him?
Would you consider this “I am the Lord that healeth thee” as a promise or this statement falls in another category?
Would this promise “I am the Lord that healeth thee” be still valid for us or not at all valid?
No wonder you still linger around in TPM with TPM Lens fitted to your eyes.
These gospel passages are clear about deliverance from demonic oppression and not about physical healing.
The context in Exodus(Exodus 15:26) is clearly about the set of diseases that Plagued the Egyptians and God Promising the Israelites that they would not be suffering those if they obey the Lord and follow his ways. How come you just lost the plot son?
The forked tongue of the anonymous faithful of CPM/TPM/NTC/NCPC/UPC is very much on public display in his recent comments. It is obvious that our anonymous friend is finding it extremely difficult to give up His allegiance to his beloved cult despite reading and understanding all the articles on this site.
Hope and pray that God will have mercy and regenerate our anonymous friend so that he can be lost from TPM and be found in Christ.
G’day to all my dear friends fromtpm.com. Hope all are safe and healthy.
Praise God for the folks fromtpm.com for their relentless efforts in keep shining the light of the Gospel of Christ into the deep deep darkness of this cult’s deeper doctrines.
Can deliverance from demonic oppression also involve physical healing or healing in any or all three aspects of a human being – body, soul and spirit?
Was Job harmed only physically by devil or where was he harmed by the devil. Did he needed healing or deliverance other aspects of his life as well?
And, are you saying that the promise “I am the Lord that healeth thee” is not true in your life or the life of other non-Jewish people?
Did you even bother to read Exodus 15:26? What does that verse say to you? Does it say that any tom dick and harry can claim it?
Simply speaking, TPM PASTORS had been quoting this verse for their healing but it is not at all working for them. They are NOT BEING HEALED based on this verse. Don’t think that God is being unfaithful to his promise. Clearly shows God is not obliged for the healing of the White Clads based on this verse.
As far as Job is concerned, all the harm that happened to him was physical and Material destruction. He did not have any spiritual harm.
God Justified Job and condemned his friends for falsely accusing him.
After the LORD had said these things to Job, he said to Eliphaz the Temanite, “I am angry with you and your two friends, because you have not spoken the truth about me, as my servant Job has. Job 42:7
It does not say that any “Tom, Dick and Harry” can claim nor does it says any “Tom, Dick and Harry” cannot claim. So, whether a person is white clad or red clad or orange clad or grey clad or khaki clad or any other clads you personally don’t like, but if they have the attributes shown in Matthew 15:28 or Matthew 8:13 (as thou hast believed), God may have mercy on them. They could be Greeks or Barbarians or Bereans or Koreans or Mongolians, and if they believe that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him, they may obtain their reward in this earth. Does it mean that it will always work? There are some who may not experience healing for certain sickness in this world, because God’s plan is different for them (For example in the parable of The rich man and Lazarus, we don’t read that Lazarus was perfectly healed before he went to Abraham’s bosom). Likewise there are a few exceptions where people in the Bible did not receive the healing they asked from God.
What stops you from understanding even basic English?
Exodus 15:26 is for Israelites and the Diseases is specifically the ones that were poured upon Egypt. You are a TOM/DICK/HARRY who is completely disconnected from this promise trying to appropriate it. PERIOD. It does not work so. And that is why Christians are not exempt from the plague of COVID-19 as well. Wake up and Smell the Coffee.
The incident in Matt 15:28 is not about physical healing it is about Demonic Possession. That healing is also not because of Exodus 15:26 promise. Again I ask you to read it rather than coming with reasons which are not viable.
In Matt 8:13 we see the centurion’s servant being healed by Jesus by his own will and that is not based on some Promise to Israel during Exodus.
Why are you trying so hard to put a square peg into a round hole?
Its really surprising that you are even pulling the Lazarus and Rich man Story into this? Assuming that this event happened in Israel, why was Lazarus not even healed being an Israelite? if the promise in Exodus 15:26 is as per your explanation, he ought to have been healed. It should be fully operating for all Israelites of all time.. Have you thought about it?
This article explained well the important of Jesus to mankind. What Jesus did on that cross is incomparable, and I am really grateful for His love.
I have been tremendously blessed by this website.

@Anonymous…..contradicting statements….two sides to a coin????????? how???
// So come with an open mind, take TPM/NTC and FROMTPM.COM as two sides to a coin and allow the Spirit of God to guide you into all truth.//
This statement of yours is spoken with a double tongue.
It hardly wins the hearts of the people like me who are redeemed out of this miry clay.
Two sides to a coin I mean don’t be quick to oppose the website, allow the Spirit of God to guide you into all truth.
Even after seeing and reading repeatedly hundreds and hundredsb of ARTICLES brought out by the owner of this site with great amount of caution,it s quite strange to see such statements of justification
NMSTF brother made a befitting remarks of forked tongue that the delution spirit has already set in.you,If you reach that stage that is end of the game.
Therefore wake up my friend as the grace poriod is still there.You are riding on the back of a tamed tigress which will unleash its true character and kill you back.Its only waiting for an opportunne time to strike you back.Till that happens rhe meaningless words like two sides of the same coin keep lingering from you,.
