The Levites Purified and Dedicated to the LORD Numbers 8

The Levites Purified and Dedicated to the LORD as depicted in Numbers 8: Moses, Aaron, and the other Israelites made sure that the Levites did everything the LORD commanded. The Levites sprinkled themselves with the water of forgiveness and washed their clothes (sounds like a baptism).

Then Aaron brought them to the altar and offered sacrifices to forgive their sins and make them acceptable to the LORD ALMIGHTY. After this, the Levites worked in the tabernacle of the congregation before Aaron, and before his sons. Here are the chapter inserts:


Numbers Chapter 8

20 And Moses, and Aaron, and all the congregation of the children of Israel, did to the Levites according unto all that the Lord commanded Moses concerning the Levites, so did the children of Israel unto them.

21 And the Levites were purified, and they washed their clothes; and Aaron offered them as an offering before the Lord; and Aaron made an atonement for them to cleanse them.

22 And after that went the Levites in to do their service in the tabernacle of the congregation before Aaron, and before his sons: as the Lord had commanded Moses concerning the Levites, so did they unto them.

23 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

24 This is it that belongeth unto the Levites: from twenty and five years old and upward they shall go in to wait upon the service of the tabernacle of the congregation:

25 And from the age of fifty years they shall cease waiting upon the service thereof, and shall serve no more:

26 But shall minister with their brethren in the tabernacle of the congregation, to keep the charge, and shall do no service. Thus shalt thou do unto the Levites touching their charge.


Be Within the Ages of 25 to 50 Years

The Lord also told Moses, “The Levites who are between the ages of twenty-five and fifty can work at the tabernacle of the congregation. But once they turn fifty, they must retire. They may help the other Levites in their duties, but they must no longer be responsible for any work themselves. Remember this when you assign their duties.”

The LORD ALMIGHTY has a very clean system we, HIS children and stewards, need not alter.

And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel. From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. The disciples asked, “Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?”
