Victims Living Offerings (Leviticus 1:3,9)

There are five offerings in Leviticus that represents the sacrifices that Jesus endured on the cross.
With one exception, all the offerings mentioned are the sacrifices that require bloodshed.
Every aspect of Christ’s sacrifice and describe our spiritual journey with Him.
All aspects of the offering is given in detail.
Nothing is left to the imagination and human understanding.

The first of the five offerings in Leviticus is the burnt offering.
It is a freewill offering, which a person gives his best to the Lord.
Four parts of sacrificial animals to be placed on the altar, to be burned with fire;

1) Head, talking about the thoughts and aspirations.
2) Fat, talk about prosperity that God has given to us.
3) The internal organs, talking about our deepest feelings.
4) Legs, talk about our spiritual journey.

All areas of life is to be submitted, purified, and equipped by the Holy Spirit.

Jesus is our burnt offering.
He came into the world as a human being, not to do His will, but to fulfill the will of the Father who sent Him.
Jesus “gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God” (Ephesians 5:2)
He willingly gave Himself completely — body, soul, and spirit — to do the will of the Father in Heaven, and accomplished it with a win.

But the victim also spoke about our offerings.
“How much more is needed the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit had offered himself to God as a sacrifice an unblemished, which will purify our consciences from acts that waste, so that we may serve the living God ? “(Hebrews 9:14).
We are not saved by works, but we are saved for good works.

Burnt offering to talk about our personal consecration as a vessel for God.
Paul instructs us to “offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God, it is your reasonable service” (Romans 12:1).
Like Jesus, when we willingly give up life to do the will of God in our generation, we become a burnt offering by the Holy Spirit.
Now we are fragrant incense to the Lord.
