Discussion for Leviticus 1

  • Insight777
    The word Lord is used because God did not require animal sacrifices. It was the Lord of the land laws that required it. The Mosaic laws (not the 10 commandments) that Jesus was sent to earth to remove. They are man made laws not from God. Men kill innocent animals making them experience pain and die so they can feel their cruelty, evil sin is acceptable to God. God hates it, a pagan sinful act.

    The religious practice of offering sacrifice to God goes back to Abel. It was the part that made him accepted to God when he came to present himself and give account of himself before the LORD. It was for bringing to remembrance the Word which God spoke from the beginning about the Anointed Saviour to come into the world, to undo the works of the devil, and the sin in man. It was rejected by Cain.

    I am going to use a quote here,"Lev. is the bk. that is the gateway to the heart of God. The key message is holiness. This is conveyed over 87 times here, Lev.10:10; 19:2. The great mission of Lev. is to mortal men that behind all the laws, commandments of God stands a HOLY and UNDEFILED God. We, therefore, can trust His word in full assurance." From "The Feasts of Jehovah in Prophecy" - P. Dugas
