The Lord start giving instructions on how to sacrifice your sins the beginning of Leviticus.
I noticed the Lord had different spiritual instuctions depending on the type of sins or offerings requested. There was 5 original offerings and most were voluntary. It’s interesting to know it was normal to kill a living animal to offer it as a meat offering. One reason for this is because the Lord love the sweet savour in the air. This reminds me when we to to grandma house while she cooking some good ol soul food on Sunday. Those who have a joy for cooking has a gift for God. Listening to Leviticus 1-13 help me realize how much God love the sweet, delicious smell of food. That explain why there is a deep-rooted tradition of soul food and praying before everyone eat. We are in the house of the lord, therefore we must learn how to satisfy the Lord in all aspects of our lives.
It was very important for people to prepare their sacrifices properly. For example, their would be instructions for peace offerings. If someone sinned against God’s law, a priest would make an atonement for them. A ruler would have to bring a goat as a sin offering. The vantage point to focus on in the 21st century is where, what and how do God want us to prepare our different offerings?
If a soul sin, he must bear his iniquity. If a soul touch the uncleaness of man, he should be guilty. These particular scripture reminds me of modern day laws. If you are in the company of bad people when caught, you can get caught up with their bad experiences. There was trepass offerings as well. What do you think about when you hear trepass? Reading through the bible shows how much God really care for his people. By having instructions, wisdom, knowledge and revelation allow us to live life more abundantly on earth. This scripture also gave me the inner, over and understanding of why people today sacrifice to the Lord along with know Jesus Christ was the ultimate sacrifice. I’ve seen people sacrifice eating their favorite foods, material things, time and more. I’m committed to find the Lord’s way to sacrifice for my sins. Do you think the Lord still expect us to have sin, peace, burnt, grain and trespass offerings? Why or why not?
It is so true that everything already happened under the sun. Today, it’s a matter of praying, mediating and listening for God’s answer on how he want us to sacrifice for our sins. I pray that the Lord forgive us of our sins known and Unknown. Eventhough, the bible gave instructions before Christ for sin offerings, we still need to cleanse our heart, spirit and soul today in the 21st century. Some reasons they sacrificed for the Lord was for intentional sin, unintentional sin, or thanksgiving and freewill. I’m falling in love with the almighty more more everyday.
