SCAPEGOAT BIBLE VERSE
SCAPEGOAT IN THE BIBLE
What is a Scapegoat in the Bible and what does the Scapegoat Bible verse have to do with YOU?
When Jesus came to John the Baptist, to be baptized, John said:
Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
Jesus was to be
baptized of John, but John did not want to at first:
forbad Him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and
comest thou to me? And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer
it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all
righteousness. Then he suffered Him.
What did Jesus
mean when He said fulfil all righteousness?
referring to an event known as the Day of Atonement:
Leviticus 16: 9-10
And Aaron (Levite priest) shall bring the goat upon
which the LORD's lot fell, and offer him for a sin
offering. But the goat, on which the lot fell to be
the SCAPEGOAT, shall be presented alive before the
LORD, to make an atonement with him, and to let him
go for a scapegoat into the wilderness.
Leviticus 16: 21-22
And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of
the live goat, and confess over him all the
iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their
transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon
the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the
hand of a fit man into the wilderness: And the goat
shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land
not inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the

Jesus was telling John that they had to fulfil all
righteousness by keeping with the day of Atonement ritual.
This day of Atonement ritual was a merely a shadow of a very
important event come.
For the law having a shadow of good things to come,
and not the very image of the things, can never with
those sacrifices which they offered year by year
continually make the comers thereunto perfect.

temptation of Jesus in the Wilderness just after His Baptism
Most know about
Jesus being tempted in the wilderness by the enemy of our
soul ... Satan:
Then was Jesus LED UP OF THE SPIRIT INTO THE
WILDERNESS to be tempted of the devil. And when He
had fasted forty days and forty nights, He was
afterward an hungred.
During the temptation of Jesus by satan, Jesus rebuked satan
for one of the temptations by sharing TRUTH.
And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou
be the Son of God, command that these stones be made
bread. But He (Jesus) answered and said, It is
written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by
every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
Jesus was quoting
And He (God) HUMBLED thee (Israelites), and
suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna,
which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers
know; that He might make thee know that MAN DOTH NOT
LIVE BY BREAD ONLY, BUT BY EVERY WORD THAT
PROCEEDETH OUT OF THE MOUTH OF THE LORD doth man
God HUMBLED the
What does it mean
to be humble?
Jesus shared a
parable of humility versus pride. Check this out:
Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a
Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee
stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank
thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners,
unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. I fast
twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I
possess. And the publican, standing afar off, would
not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but
smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me
a sinner. I tell you, this man went down to his
house justified rather than the other: for every one
that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that
humbleth himself shall be exalted.
Letís look at
what occurred next:
And they brought unto Him also infants, that He
would touch them: but when His disciples saw it,
they rebuked them. But Jesus called them unto Him,
and said, Suffer little children to come unto me,
and forbid them not: for of such is the Kingdom of
God. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not
receive the Kingdom of God as a little child shall
in no wise enter therein.
We must choose to HUMBLE ourselves as a
Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this
little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of

SCAPEGOAT IN THE BIBLE PROPHECY
WHAT IS A SCAPEGOAT REASON FOR HUMILITY
The Bible is
CLEAR that we are to be humble.
Before destruction the heart of man is haughty,
and before honour is humility.
By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches,
and honour, and life.
man's pride shall bring him low: but honour shall
uphold the humble in spirit.
And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased;
and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.
But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God
resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the

SCAPEGOAT IN THE BIBLE TRUTH
WHAT IS A SCAPEGOAT BLESSING
So, the next time
you are in the WILDERNESS experiencing temptations, trials
and tribulations thereby testing your Faith, just remember
what Jesus did when He was enduring His wilderness
Tell YOU the
TRUTH of the POWER of the WORD of God.
IMPORTANT NOTE ...
Many feel that
because satan is the enemy of our souls that we can go
around mocking and cursing him.
The Bible is
CLEAR on this matter:
2 Peter 2:10-11
But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the
lust of uncleanness, and despise government.
Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not
afraid to speak evil of dignities. Whereas angels,
which are greater in power and might, bring not
railing accusation against them before the Lord.
wording of these scriptures does not reflect the resistance
of mankind against human government ... But rather mankind
speaking against supernatural powers and authority.
This is proven
when it says ANGELS fear to bring accusation against
these "dignities" ...
The book of Jude
further explains ...
Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the
flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of
dignities. Yet Michael the archangel,
when contending with the devil
he disputed about the body of Moses,
durst not bring against him a railing accusation,
but said, The Lord rebuke thee.
archangels know it is the LORDíS Power which sends satan
packing. So, RESIST the enemy of your soul by submitting
yourself to GOD and he WILL bail:
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the
devil, and he will flee from you.

before honour is humility.

the same path:
2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, which are called by my name, shall
humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and
turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from
Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal
