Apr 15

Good morning, Father.
Thank you for the peaceful slowness I have this morning, feeling unhurried and unworried. Please heal up whatever this is making me feel weak and dizzy, so that I can be strong enough to walk to the store to get the groceries today. And please heal it up good over the weekend, so I can have the endurance to mow the lawn on Monday. Thank you, Father!

 
Leviticus 15:16-20 ERV

If a man has a flow of semen, he must bathe his whole body in water. He will be unclean until evening.
If the semen is on any clothing or leather, that clothing or leather must be washed with water. It will be unclean until evening.
If a woman has sexual relations with a man, and he has a flow of semen, both the man and the woman must bathe in water. They will be unclean until evening.
“If a woman has a discharge from her monthly time of bleeding, she will be unclean for seven days. Anyone who touches her will be unclean until evening.
Everything she lies on during her monthly time of bleeding will be unclean. And everything she sits on during that time will be unclean.

 
Here is something I have never heard another human speak of besides myself. We live in a male-centric world, and the males have been quick to drive home how UNCLEAN a woman is when she is on her period. Yet, they neglect to read the three verses BEFORE that… How every time they ejaculate, THEY are UNCLEAN for the rest of the day…!! And that is IF they BATHE!!! I have mentioned this to my husband and the only way he believed me at all was based on his trust in my “scholarliness”. Otherwise, he would have thought I was kidding, or misinformed. Well, here it is for all to see — look it up for yourself in whatever version of the Bible you prefer. And pass it on to the men (and women!) in your life! If women are “unclean” for one week of every month, then “active” men like mine are unclean ALL THE TIME…!!! But I will admit, this IS Levitical Law. And the law has been done away with. Still, any man who wants to declare that ANY point of the law is still relevant today should also be informed of this little nugget. 😉
