    I was entering the grocery store the other day, and noticed a man who was wearing a very small suit. He was wearing big sunglasses. I turned to him and said that he looked the weather man on t.v.. His reply was that he was his son!

    I immediately for one instant thought this person was an angel. I immediately thought of Christ! When He had said that he was the weatherman's Son, everything came into perspective, that Jesus is living among us! That Jesus is the weatherman's son, that He lives and dwells among us in everyday life!

    Leviticus Chapter 3

    ...continued

    The fat is considered the best part, especially the tail of the sheep (it is a delicacy). God deserves the best of our abundance and what we have had an increase of. We should willingly want to bring Him the best of what we are able to offer. But more importantly, Jesus is the ultimate Best that God could offer for us. There is no one more valuable that Jesus and His sacrifice is beyond any else that could be considered a full payment for our sinfulness. He is the absolute pure and spotless One Who alone is worthy to not only be the One who secured our salvation, but also worthy of all glory, honor, and praise from all created beings.

    And, for us, it is the most worthwhile thing for us to have peace with God and be able to enter into fellowship with Him without any encumbrances or obstacles. Jesus is our Peace who has broken down every wall.

    In meals that were common (and not this specific peace offering) the Israelites could eat of this fat. But for this sacred ordinance, they could not. Even so, there is unseen fat within all flesh we eat. We may just not be able to detect it. So, allegorically, God has hidden some of the riches of His grace within us that will be revealed to us in the abundance of life we have in the Spirit and in our daily walk. We are being changed from glory to glory into the image of Jesus. Such a beautiful thought.

    Leviticus Chapter 3

    In chapter 1 was the burnt sacrifice for the atonement for sin. It represents the sacrifice of Jesus shedding His blood unto death on the cross for our sins.

    In chapter 2 was the offering of grain, bread, fruits and vegetables. It represents faith and sanctification. We are sanctified and set apart for the Father through the death AND resurrection of Jesus. He won the victory for us over sin and purified believers as a people for God's favor.

    In this chapter, the peace offering is detailed. This represents peace with the Father, which Jesus is for us. he is our Peace. It is Jesus who reconciled us to the Father so that we can have harmony, prosperity, happiness, friendship, fellowship, and unity with Him and with one another.

    The text describes three types of peace offerings: cattle from the herd; sheep from the flock; and goats from the herd.

    Whichever animal one determines to bring to the LORD through the priest, each are to be slaughtered at the entrance to the tent of meeting. The offerer is the one who cuts the throats, and the priest is the one who sprinkles the blood all over the altar.

    The priest then cuts up the animal, reserving all of the visible, visceral fat specified to be burned on the altar (being put on top of the burnt offering that is already on the altar from either the morning or evening sacrifice.)

    Then the offerer and the priest (and family members of both parties) consume the remainder of the meat from the animal as a meal together. This is to signify that because of the blood sacrifice for the atonement for sin and the sanctifying offering, this peace offering comes next. It follows the two previous works of Christ, our priest and also sacrifice.

    The text emphasizes strongly that the fat belongs to the LORD. It is set apart and considered holy. The offerer nor the priests are to eat this fat. it is to be totally burned on the altar for God. The fat represents abundance and health, blessing and richness.

    Hello, Esmeralda

    When the Holy Spirit makes us aware that we have sinned, we are to agree with the Spirit that what he pointed out to us is a sin and then confess that we are sorrowful about having done it and wish to not do it again, asking the Spirit to help us to resist it next time. We can believe what Scripture says, that he is faithful and just to forgive us. 1John 1:8-10.

    We can walk in newness, knowing that we have been forgiven and cleansed from our sin. There is no sacrifice or "penance" we need to do to bring about forgiveness of our sins or make us right with God. We are just asked to believe and look to Jesus for all or our salvation.

    As far as someone who isn't a believer, I am not sure if you are asking about how to tell this person about salvation in Jesus or how to address them about a sin in their lives. So, please respond back so we can know better what you are asking.

    What should we do now in these to bring a sacrifice to lord when we sin or do something that we shouldn't do as Christians ? or how should we advice for a person who don't know God.
  • M - In Reply on Leviticus 3 - 3 years ago
    To the best of my understanding, it's because the sin has to be paid for. The payment for sin is blood because the wages of sin is death. There's some kind of connection between the physical things going on in this world and the spiritual world.

    The Lord is a spiritual being why do fleshly thing sacrificed atone us not spiritual thing .

    Verse 17: The command not to eat blood has always been in effect by Jehovah God.
  • Ronald on Leviticus 3 - 8 years ago
    Did anyone notice that the burnt offering for atonement had to be a male without blemish and the peace offering could be either a male or female without blemish?
  • GeraldineCole on Leviticus 3 - 8 years ago
    Praise Jesus the One who was sent to die in our Place. We do not need to allow our children to die and Jesus is only anger with The wicked every day why because their thought are not about him nor do they want him .they are the childern of Satan . Another thing we are not to eat fat meat or bloody meat. Serving Jesus is the answer .read the bible don't follow Man follow Jesus .and pray

    IT IS GODS WILL THAT WE SHOULD OBEY. I MIGUEL.A.COTRICH OBEY GODS WILL WHEN HE GAVE ME SOME THING TO TESTIFIED A TESTIMONY THAT HE GAVE ME TO TESTIFIED OF HOW THIS GOVERNMENT WAS GOING TO BE CORRUPTED I NEVER REJECTED JESUS CHRIST SIGN, AND I PAYED THE PRICE BY BECOMING TOTALLY, AND PERMANETLY DISABLED. I DO NOT REGRET ANY THING THAT I DID FOR JESUS CHRIST.IT SHOULD SIMPLY TELL US THAT GODS IS JUST NOT INTERESTED IN OUR SERVICES, AND OFFERINGS BUT RATHER INTERESTED IN THE QUALITY OF SERVICE, AND OFFERING WE GIVE HIM. IF WE WANT GOD TO HONOUR, AND ACCEPT OUR LIVES, SERVICE, AND OFFERING,THEN THEY MUST BE WITH OUT BLEMIST OR SPOT OF BLAME,THEY MUST BE FREE OF SIN, AND FREE OF SINFUL MOTIVES OR DISPOSITION BUT HOLY, AND WHOLLY OFFERED YIELDED UNTO THE LORD. THIS WHAT GOD DEMANDS FROM US ROMANS 12: VRS 1-2. EVERY OFFERING OR EVERY THING THAT IS FOR THE LORD IS THE MOST ABOVE ALL. AND OUR HEART SHOULD BE CENTERED HIM AS WE PRAISE HIM ALSO IN TIME OF OUR GIVEN.I MIGUEL.A.COTRICH DID ALL OF THIS, AND MY HEART IS CENTER ON JESUS CHRIST MY PROOF IS I DID NOT REJECTED JESUS CHRIST FOR MY SON, AND HE IS MAD ABOUT THAT.

    Giving sacrifice unto God with your whole heart is good and it attracts God 's blessings to our lives
  • Joseph Appiah on Leviticus 3 - 9 years ago
    Once again, we see the repetitive demand of the LORD for an offering without blemish in verses 1 and 6 of this chapter. This was demanded in chapter 1 vrs 3 and is repeated twice in this chapter and other places in the Bible. It should simply tell us that God is not just interested in our services and offerings but rather interested in the quality of service and offering we give Him. If we want God to honour and accept our lives, services and offerings, then they must be without blemish or spot of blame, they must be free of sin and free of sinful motives or disposition but holy and wholly offered and yielded unto the LORD. This is what God demands and requested of us in Romans 12 vrs 1 and 2. I pray God helps us to honour and meet His demand for our lives in Jesus name, Amen. God richly bless you all.
  • Jona on Leviticus 3 - 10 years ago
    every offering or everything that is for the Lord is the most best above all.and our heart should be centered on Him as we praise Him also intime of our giving.
