Leviticus 16 Star Chart: Clockwise from when (Hercules) Aaron, the high priest, "shall make an atonement for the holy place, because of the uncleanness of the (Gemini) children of Israel, and because of their transgressions in all their sins" (16:16) "until he come out (Ophiuchus walking), and have made an atonement for himself, and for his household, and for all the congregation of Israel" (16:17) is 360° or 30 minutes at 12° per minute. "And he shall go out unto the (solar) altar that is before the (Shekinah) Lord, and make an atonement for it; and shall take of the (red radius) blood of the (Taurus) bullock, and of the (red radius) blood of the (Taurus) goat, and put it upon the (lunar) horns of the (red radius) altar round about" (16:18) is (2 x 360°) 12 seconds. "And he shall sprinkle of the (red radius) blood upon it with his (Scorpio) finger seven times (7 x 360°), and cleanse it, and hallow it from the uncleanness of the (Gemini) children of Israel" (16:19) is 7 seconds. (Then he will return out of the Tabernacle -- from heaven) "And when he hath made an end of reconciling the holy place, and the (red radius) tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar, he shall bring the live (Taurus) goat" (16:20) is 150° seconds. "And (Hercules) Aaron shall lay both his (lunar) (red radius) hands upon the head of the live (Taurus) goat, and (red radius) confess over him all the iniquities of the (Gemini) children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the (Taurus) goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit (Perseus) man into the wilderness" (16:21) is 360°or 30 minutes more .

The slain goat represented the crucified Jesus. The High Priest now represents Christ who takes his own blood to the very throne of God in heaven. Christ bore guilt that was not his, while the Devil got off free. Full justice requires placing the blame and guilt back where it belongs. Therefore the Azazel goat must bear the guilt. "The whole earth has been corrupted through the works that were taught by Azazel: to him ascribe all sin" (Book of Enoch 10:8).

In actual practice, this goat was thrown off a cliff so it wouldn't wander back to camp (Yoma 67b; Sifra, Aare, ii. 2; Targ. Yer. Lev. xiv. 10). Aaron and the "fit man" both wash and cleanse themselves after coming into contact with the Azazel goat. This implies the Devil. Notice that the act of putting the sins on the live goat doesn't occur till the SECOND COMING or RETURN of the High Priest from the Holy of Holies within the veil after 2000 years of reconciliation. So this is after Christ's SECOND COMING to this earth. See Rev. 20:1-3. Satan is Azazel. The "bottomless pit" is the uninhabited desolate wilderness (Rev. 20:1-3). The fit man is "an angel" from heaven (20:1).

 

 


The Azazel Goat is Satan, the Fit Man is an Angel & the Uninhabited Wilderness is a Bottomless Pit (Rev. 20)

16:1 And the (Shekinah) Lord spake unto (Ophiuchus) Moses after the death of the two (Gemini) sons of (Hercules) Aaron, when they offered before the Lord, and died;

2 And the (Shekinah) Lord said unto (Ophiuchus) Moses, Speak unto (Hercules) Aaron thy brother, that he come not at all times into the holy place within the vail before the mercy seat, which is upon the ark; that he die not: for I will appear in the cloud upon the mercy seat.

3 Thus shall Aaron come into the holy place: with a young (Taurus) bullock for a sin offering, and a (Aries) ram for a burnt offering.

4 He shall put on the holy linen (lunar) coat, and he shall have the (lunar white) linen breeches upon his flesh, and shall be girded with a linen girdle, and with the (lunar) linen mitre shall he be attired: these are holy garments; therefore shall he wash his flesh in water, and so put them on.

5 And he shall take of the congregation of the (Gemini) children of Israel two (lunar) kids of the goats for a sin offering, and one (Aries) ram for a burnt offering.

6 And Aaron shall offer his (Taurus) bullock of the sin offering, which is for himself, and make an atonement for himself, and for his house.

7 And he shall take the two (lunar) goats, and present them before the (Shekinah) Lord at the (red radius) door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

8 And (Hercules) Aaron shall cast (lunar) lots upon the two (lunar) (Taurus) goats; one lot for the Lord, and the other lot (in contrast) for the scapegoat (Azazel -- Devil).

9 And (Hercules) Aaron shall bring the (lunar) (Taurus) goat upon which the Lord's lot fell, and offer him for a sin offering.

10 But the (lunar) (Taurus) goat, on which the (lunar) lot fell to be the (Taurus) scapegoat, shall be presented alive before the Lord, to make an atonement with him, and to let him go for a (Taurus) scapegoat into the wilderness.

11 And (Hercules) Aaron shall bring the (Taurus) bullock of the sin offering, which is for himself, and shall make an atonement for himself, and for his house, and shall (Perseus) (red radius) kill the (Taurus) bullock of the sin offering which is for himself:

12 And he shall take a (solar) censer full of burning coals of fire from off the altar before the (Shekinah) Lord, and his hands full of sweet (red radius stick) incense beaten small, and bring it within the vail:

13 And he shall put the (red radius stick) incense upon the (solar) fire before the (Shekinah) Lord, that the (Milky Way) cloud of the incense may cover the mercy seat that is upon the testimony, that he die not:

14 And he shall take of the (red radius) blood of the (Taurus) bullock, and sprinkle it with his (Scorpio) finger upon the mercy seat eastward; and before the mercy seat shall he sprinkle of the (red radius) blood with his (Scorpio) finger seven times (7 x 360°).

15 Then shall he (Perseus) (red radius) kill the (Taurus) goat of the sin offering, that is for the (Gemini) people, and bring his (red radius) blood within the vail, and do with that (red radius) blood as he did with the (red radius) blood of the (Taurus) bullock, and sprinkle it upon the (solar golden) mercy seat, and before the (solar golden) mercy seat:

16 And he shall make an atonement for the holy place, because of the uncleanness of the (Gemini) children of Israel, and because of their transgressions in all their sins: and so shall he do for the (red radius) tabernacle of the congregation, that remaineth among them in the midst of their uncleanness.

The slain goat represented the crucified Jesus. The High Priest now represents Christ who takes his own blood to the very throne of God in heaven. The Azazel goat doesn't picture any of this.

17 And there shall be no man in the (red radius) tabernacle of the congregation when he goeth in to make an atonement in the holy place, until he come out, and have made an atonement for himself, and for his household, and for all the congregation of Israel.

18 And he shall go out unto the (solar) altar that is before the (Shekinah) Lord, and make an atonement for it; and shall take of the (red radius) blood of the (Taurus) bullock, and of the (red radius) blood of the (Taurus) goat, and put it upon the (lunar) horns of the (red radius) altar round about.

19 And he shall sprinkle of the (red radius) blood upon it with his (Scorpio) finger seven times (7 x 360°), and cleanse it, and hallow it from the uncleanness of the (Gemini) children of Israel.

20 And when he hath made an end of reconciling the holy place, and the (red radius) tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar, he shall bring the live (Taurus) goat:

21 And (Hercules) Aaron shall lay both his (lunar) hands upon the head of the live (Taurus) goat, and (red radius) confess over him all the iniquities of the (Gemini) children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the (Taurus) goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit (Perseus) man into the wilderness:

Christ bore guilt that was not his, while the Devil got off free. Full justice requires placing the blame and guilt back where it belongs. Is it justice for Christ to bear the Devil's guilt? Aaron and the "fit man" both had to wash and cleanse himself after coming into contact with the Azazel goat. This implies the Devil. Notice that the act of putting the sins on the live goat doesn't occur till the SECOND COMING or RETURN of the High Priest from the Holy of Holies within the veil. So this is after Christ's SECOND COMING to this earth. See Rev. 20:3. The "bottomless pit" is the uninhabited desolate wilderness (Rev. 20:1-3). The fit man is "an angel" from heaven (20:1).

22 And the (Taurus) goat shall bear upon him (Fenton: shall carry upon itself) all their iniquities unto a land not inhabited: and he shall let go the (Taurus) goat in the wilderness.

23 And (Hercules) Aaron shall come into the (red radius) tabernacle of the congregation, and shall put off the linen garments, which he put on when he went into the holy place, and shall leave them there:

24 And he shall wash his flesh with water in the holy place, and put on his garments, and come forth, and offer his (solar) burnt offering, and the (solar) burnt offering of the people, and make an atonement for himself, and for the (Gemini) people.

25 And the (lunar) fat of the sin offering shall he (solar) burn upon the altar.

26 And he that let go the (Taurus) goat for the scapegoat (Azazel) shall wash his (lunar) clothes, and bathe his (lunar) flesh in water, and afterward (Ophiuchus) come into the camp.

27 And the (Taurus) bullock for the sin offering, and the (Taurus) goat for the sin offering, whose (red radius) blood was brought in to make atonement in the holy place, shall one carry forth without the camp; and they shall (solar) burn in the fire their skins, and their flesh, and their dung.

28 And he that (solar) burneth them shall wash his (lunar) clothes, and bathe his (lunar) flesh in water, and afterward he shall (Ophiuchus) come into the camp.

29 And this shall be a statute for ever unto you: that in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, ye shall afflict your souls (fast), and do no work at all, whether it be one of your own country, or a stranger that sojourneth among you:

30 For on that day shall the priest make an atonement for you, to cleanse you, that ye may be clean from all your sins before the Lord.

31 It shall be a sabbath of rest unto you, and ye shall afflict your souls (fast), by a statute for ever.

32 And the priest, whom he shall anoint, and whom he shall consecrate to minister in the priest's office in his father's stead, shall make the atonement, and shall put on the (lunar) linen clothes, even the holy garments:

33 And he shall make an atonement for the holy sanctuary, and he shall make an atonement for the (red radius) tabernacle of the congregation, and for the altar, and he shall make an atonement for the (Gemini) priests, and for all the (Gemini) people of the congregation.

34 And this shall be an everlasting statute unto you, to make an atonement for the (Gemini) children of Israel for all their sins once a year. And he did as the (Shekinah) Lord commanded (Ophiuchus) Moses.
