God’s word is not always easy to understand. For years I avoided the following, never preaching or teaching on it.
But God’s word is meant to be understood. It is given so we can know the fullness of the Father.
Gen 15:9-11 So He said to him, “Bring Me a three-year-old heifer, a three-year-old female goat, a three-year-old ram, a turtledove, and a young pigeon.” Then he brought all these to Him and cut them in two, down the middle, and placed each piece opposite the other; but he did not cut the birds in two. And when the vultures came down on the carcasses, Abram drove them away.
The greatest proof of God’s promises is found in the text and those that follow.
Sacrifice is important to God.
According to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission. Heb 9:22
The sacrifices of Adam, Noah, Abram, and all before Sinai, were done without the demand of the Law.
In Abram’s case, he brought every blood sacrifice allowed by the future Law. The complete set, as it were.
Jesus is the complete sacrifice. He did what the heifer, goat, ram, turtledove, and pigeon could not do – satisfy God.
Satan wants to take that away, like the vultures. He doesn’t want you to know or depend on the offering of Jesus.
He wants the world to be confused, divided, and confrontational over Jesus.
Break through the confusion and misunderstanding. Read God’s word and let the Holy Spirit reveal the truth, in Jesus name, YES&AMEN!!!
