Dave Pack: I Will Bear The Sins of the Church

Davey has been struggling for months and months trying to figure out what the:filthy garments" are that he is supposed to have.  Try as he might he cannot do it.  Until now......since he is without sin it cannot be him, so it has to be all the sins of others that he has to bear.

Looking into the Hebrew words for “thine iniquity” brought clarity. First, the word thine was added by translators. It is not in the Hebrew! The iniquity is NOT Joshua’s. As did Mr. Armstrong on a couple occasions, our Headquarters ministers asked leading rabbis if this verse was referring to Joshua’s sin. This phrase was not obscure or hard to determine for the rabbis. They knew immediately. Many preeminent Jewish commentaries and scholars explain that this has to do with the nation of Judah having fallen into sin. Also, anciently, Ezra describes (in what is a helpful type) how the men of Judah had married foreign wives. As with Solomon’s foreign wives, this led to the worship of false gods. Notice: “And the children of Israel, which were come again out of captivity, and all such as had separated themselves unto them from the filthiness of the heathen of the land, to seek the Lord God of Israel…” (Ezra 6:21). Also read chapter 9, verse 11.
In summary, it became clear that Joshua’s filthy garments were connected to his role as HIGH PRIEST.

He's hinted, implied, danced around, and done everything but actually declare that he is Jesus. Joshua, Jeshua, no sin, bearing the sins of the church, these are all characteristics of Jesus. How shameful, but I guess there were no exclusive titles or positions of authority left for the taking.

"Looking into the Hebrew words for “thine iniquity” brought clarity."

Well clear as mud anyway.

May I suggest a good read of "The Emperor Joshua's New Clothes"

First it was Roderick Meredith who has never committed any major sin since he was baptized and now Davey Pack is without sin.

I guess we have two who can argue about who gets to cast the first stone.

Too bad having mental disorders aren't strictly speaking, sin.

Or maybe they are.

Ridiculing, scourging, and crucifixion were the appointed penalties which came with the bearing of the sins of the people. It is asking God to hold you personally accountable, and the penalty is death. There is an old saying, "Be careful what you wish for".
