    Exodus, Ch.29

    continued...

    From then on, two yearling labs were to offered everyday, one in the morning an done at twilight. A tenth of an ephah of flour mixed with one fourth of a hin (liquid measure) of pressed oil, and one fourth of a hin of wine for a drink offering for each lamb offered. This is burned. This shall be a continual burnt offering throughout their generations at the door of the tabernacle of meeting before the LORD. Jesus' sacrifice is a once and for all (everybody and for eternity), therefore a perpetual offering in its effects.

    YHWH says after these things are completed He will meet with the Israelites and He will sanctify the whole tabernacle by His Glory ( the tabernacle of meeting, the altar, and the priests) Jesus is the Glory of the Father before men. He sanctifies those who believe in Him and what He did to save us. He said He will dwell among the Israelites and be their God. And the people will know that He is YHWH who brought them out of Egypt. He is I AM, the LORD their God. Jesus said that those who believe in Him will have eternal life and that eternal life is knowing the Father and the Son and that the Holy Spirit will indwell believers. This is our God, Father, Son, and Spirit. Not only are each of us a tabernacle for God to indwell, but the whole body of Christ is unified to Jesus and the Holy Spirit dwells in the church, a building fitted together in unity.

    continued.

    He gave His all for us and this pleased the Father.

    Aaron and his sons put their hands on the second ram and it was slaughtered. Some of the blood was used to place on the tip of the right ear, thumb, and toe of Aaron and his sons. The remainder of the blood was sprinkled around the altar and upon the garments of Aaron and his sons. Again the fat of the ram, its tail, kidneys, caul, and right thigh are used to be burned, along with one loaf of bread, one cake, and one wafer. First, these things are raised up above by Aaron and his sons, presented to YHWH (Jesus was raised up on the cross) as a wave offering and then burned on the altar.

    Then the priests are to take the breast and the other thigh portion of the ram and offer it up as a wave offering (peace offering) but not burn it. This portion was to be eaten by the priests after being boiled along with the remaining bread, eaten by the door of the tabernacle of meeting (not inside the tabernacle). In this way the priest consume that which the atonement was made and in doing so they will be consecrated (ordained) and sanctified (set apart) for service for YHWH.

    Only priests are to consume this portion of the atoning sacrifice. No outsider is to do this, because both the priests and the offering are holy. Jesus is both the sin offering for atonement and the High Priest. He alone is worthy of being offered and He alone is owed all of the joy, honor, and satisfaction of fulfilling God's requirement for the remission of sin. It is between YHWH and the priests, just like the decision and carrying out of the atonement was only within the Godhead with not participation from sinful man who was separated from God, His enemy, and dead in sin (unable to do anything to counsel or assist in this work).

    This consecration was to take seven days with a bull offered every day as a sin offering of atonement for the altar and sanctify it. Whatever touches the altar must be holy. Jesus is the only Holy One..

    Exodus Ch. 29

    In this chapter directions are given for the consecration of the priests for their services to YHWH in the tabernacle.

    It seems that it was not enough that the priests were properly dressed for the service, but there needed to be blood sacrifice and the priests sprinkled with the blood while they were wearing their priestly garments. Makes me think of Jesus' robe dipped in blood in Revelation.

    The bread was to be unleavened to signify sinlessness, as Jesus is, our Bread of Heaven.

    The priests were to be consecrated-ordained-into the priesthood. This is a special ceremony to initiate the priesthood. It was to last for seven days.

    Aaron laid his hands on the heard of the bull, then the bull was slaughtered and offered to YHWH, the blood of which is applied to the horns of the altar of sacrifice with the finger of the priest and pour the rest of the blood next to the altar. There must have been some kind of vessel to collect the blood at the base of the altar.

    The process of offering the bull was that the fat, caul, and kidneys are to be burned on the altar of sacrifice unto the LORD. The flesh and skin of the bull was to be burned outside of the camp as this represented that the bull took the sins of the priest and people off of the humans and onto the bull. So, the flesh, like our sinful nature, could not enter the tabernacle, but must be burned away outside of the camp, (removed from our being by the sacrifice of Jesus), since it is a sin offering. Jesus was sacrificed outside of the city wall, our sin offering.

    The rams were to be spotless, (Jesus was completely sinless). Aaron again placed his hands upon the ram's head, slaughter it, collect the blood, and sprinkle all of the blood around the altar. Then cut the ram into pieces, wash the legs and entrails. Then all of the pieces of this ram were put on the altar to be burned unto YHWH (called a burnt offering) and the aroma was a sweet smell to YHWH. Jesus' whole Person was offered....

    I am also from the South. I was born in Ky. There were indeed Northern Baptists, they just do not seem to refer to themselves that way. So good question. They were a distinct group not affiliated with the southern baptists. I am not sure where or if the group exists today, but they existed in history. We studied a bit about them in Church history class around the time of the civil war.

    Frank, The reason we had to sacrifice animals is because WE sinned. It's not like God just wanted us to kill animals for his pleasure. Before Adam and Eve got us started on this journey Man cared for and had dominion over the animals and did not kill and eat them. It's called a sacrifice because you have to give up something. You have to feel the pain of giving up something to truly understand what sacrifice means. Imagine how God felt giving up his son to pain and suffering for a people who didn't even understand what he was doing for us all.
  • Smitty - in Reply on Exodus 29
    Charles, I have a question. I hope this doesn't offend as I too am from the South, but exactly why do Southern Baptists call themselves, Southern Baptists? I've never heard a Yankee say I'm a Northern Baptist? Are the Yankees ashamed to call themselves Northern Baptists? Or is there no such thing as a Northern Baptist? Are there Eastern and Western Baptists?

    The fat and the best portions of meat from the best of the herds and flocks being sacrificed was simply this. If a friend were to come to your house to eat would you not offer your best to them? Well, God demanded a sacrifice be made to him by the Israelites to atone for their sins. In return God made a covenant with them that he would be their God and as long as they did this he would dwell with them. So they offered up their best as he commanded. It has nothing to do with dietary concerns.
  • Frank on Exodus 29
    I hate that animals had to be killed and sacrificed for sin. But I love that Jesus ended that practice when He offered up himself for all sin and sacrifice of animals were done away with.

    It's not about what we feel guilty or not about. God's word is full of bad examples of what alcohol does to a person or their situation.

    This makes it so clear as to why clergy wear robes in the pulpit to this day. It's amazing how God was so clear to Moses in his instructions in how the robes and such should be made and who should make them. Then Moses translated all that information to the letter. Additionally, I'm not a big meat eater. So every time I read Exodus I'm less bothered by that.
  • Martha on Exodus 29
    Randy...Keep in mind this is my opinion but I believe Israel was required to offer up the fat as an act of obedience and giving of the best part of the sacrifice to God. The blood of the sacrifice was the life and, I believe, represented the blood of Christ that would in time be a cover for our sins.
  • Randy Jay Rance on Exodus 29
    Hello there my question is a serious one that nobody seems to want to explain fully ? What was the full potential of offering up the fat Ex.29 13 and other verses. I have heard it explained that the Israelites " liked " the fat being that it wasn 't good for them, God would have them offer it up to Him and Yes, it was a pleasing aroma to His highest Majesty. Can you confirm, or deny this thought or add to the hidden depth of offering up the fat. PLEASE, Thank You Sincerely.

    I am a Southern Baptist but I don t abstain from drinking wine Jesus changed water into wine at a wedding he drank wine with disciples at the Last Supper and Paul suggested to Timothy that he drink some wine to settle his stomach Paul also said that overseers should not be given to drunkenness and elders should not indulge in much wine I can understand the Baptists preaching abstinence to prevent addiction to alcohol but don t feel guilty about having a glass of wine at dinner at home or at a restaurant But it keeps me from accepting nomination to become an elder
  • Mary on Exodus 29
