Watch Out For The Unclean Carcass

37 If one of their carcasses falls on any seed that is to be sown, it is clean; 38 but if water has been put on the seed and one of their carcasses falls on it, it is unclean for you. ~ Leviticus 11:37-38CSB

The LORD gave many laws and statutes to Aaron and Moses to tell the people. These laws were a shadow of things to come. God said that if a dead carcass of one of the unclean lizards falls on any of the seed that is to be sown, the seed will remain clean, but if it’s been watered, it has become unclean. Why is that?

In the parable of the Sower, Jesus explained that the Word of God is the seed, and the different types of fields receiving the seed are four different types of hearts. See, the Word of God cannot be polluted by false doctrine, misinterpretation, and twisting of Scripture unless someone hears it and accepts it. The seed must first be planted and watered in order to corrupt the seed because our words can affect whether the seed grows into a good fruit-bearing tree or a bad fruit tree.

The Word of God is powerful and is not subject to anyone’s sole interpretation. There is only God’s interpretation. So when you hear the Word of God preached or taught, you have to weigh it against what the Word of God says, lest you believe false truths and your watered seed becomes unclean.

Dear LORD, please open my eyes and ears to Your Truth and Your Truth alone. Fill me with a spirit of discernment so that I might not be tripped up by false doctrine and false interpretations. Help me to be like the Bereans who searched the Word of God to see if what Paul said was true. Teach me to see the Truth, LORD, so that I might never accept or teach anything false. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
