There are many things that disqualify one from coming into the Holy of Holies.
We must understand those things that will keep us from coming before the throne to receive Godís direction.
Spiritual birth defects:
[LEV 21:16] And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying,  "Speak to Aaron, saying: íNo man of your descendants in succeeding generations, who has any defect, may approach to offer the bread of his God.
 íFor any man who has a defect shall not approach: a man blind or lame, who has a marred face or any limb too long,  ía man who has a broken foot or broken hand,  íor is a hunchback or a dwarf, or a man who has a defect in his eye, or eczema or scab, or is a eunuch.
 íNo man of the descendants of Aaron the priest, who has a defect, shall come near to offer the offerings made by fire to the LORD. He has a defect; he shall not come near to offer the bread of his God.  íHe may eat the bread of his God, both the most holy and the holy;  íonly he shall not go near the veil or approach the altar, because he has a defect, lest he profane My sanctuaries; for I the LORD sanctify them.í " [NKJ]
1. Blind - lacks vision
Where there is no vision the people perish, but he that keepeth the law happy is he. Pro 29:18
Vision for yourself, family, church family
Many Christians are up and down in their walk because they are not ardent pursuers of the Lord. The need is direction, purpose. God will continue to keep us expanding and developing us.
And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heavens suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force. Mat 11:12
The kingdom of heaven has been established by Jesus to be a powerful reigning and moving force among men.
Treatment: Be an ardent pursuer of the Lord for direction & purpose.
2. Lame - injured walk from falling into a pit.
Moving off of the Lords path will keep you from walkng upright and straight.
Treatment: Look before you leap. Know Godís direction and instruction then follow it.
3. Marred face - Flat nose - lack of discernment.
Affects our taste and with a bad nose you cannot discern what is tasteful or distasteful to the Lord.
Treatment: Listen continually to Godís Spirit speaking in regards to situations you are in or about to be in.
4. Limb too long. - out of balance.
Emphasis of certain truths to the exclusion of other truths.
Jesus is the Word, the whole Word, and rejecting part of the Word is rejecting part of Christ.
Lets walk in love instead of trying to walk in doctrine.
Treatment: Develop a balanced understanding of God and His ways. Use the entire bible from Genesis to Revelation.
5. Broken footed - unreliable
Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble is like a broken tooth, and a foot out of joint. Proverbs 25:19
One who is always jumping into things too quickly with "The Lord spoke to me," then two or three weeks later is off in another direction. This person makes it seem that God has changed His mind again and again.
This causes pain to the person themselves and those about them
Treatment: Become a person of your word. Always do what youíve said you will do. Donít put words is Godís mouth.
6. Broken handed - inability to grasp or lay hold of things.
