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.

Rick also stopped receiving a salary from the church where he was serving on his own.
Then he also calculated back all the salary he has received over the past 24 years since he entered the church and restore it.

Five ways God wants to be recognized (Exodus 34:6)

Once a well-known Bible teacher stated that
“A leader needs the compensation due to buildup”
In one sense, this is very evident in the business world.
Those at the top have a lot of compensation.
They were given an added bonus, cars, houses, and roads abroad.
Spiritually, we should be compensated is a closer relationship with God and the Holy Spirit’s presence stronger.

Moses received the compensation is to meet face to face with God, as a man speaks to his friend (Exodus 33:11).
Moses boldly ask God to show His glory. (Exodus 33:18)
A leader can fail because of the priority placed on the wrong thing.
Moses did not ask for the position, dignity, fame, or even the prosperity of God.
When we read the Bible, Bible heroes who have the all blessings are never made ​​it a priority.
Those things are just added to them as they seek the Kingdom of God first (Matthew 6:33).
They all have the presence and power of God.
For those met with God is more important than their service.

In Exodus 34:6, God revealed Himself to Moses in the way as he wants to be recognized. he
(1) the merciful
(2) full of grace
(3) long-suffering
(4) abundant in kindness
(5) the truth
This is the fifth most important of God’s nature.

When we walk with God, we must fully understand five things.
Be a compassionate, quick to forgive.
Be generous to those around us in our attitudes and words.
Long wait on each other, have the inner strength to calm our anger.
“Goodness,” means “I can not do evil”.
Be a person who is not capable of plotting and planning something evil against others.
And lastly, be someone who walks and lives in truth.

Without mixture (Revelation 22:11)

In Exodus 32, Moses together with God for 40 days on the mountain.
Impatient with delays, people speculated that Moses would not return.
Then they went to Aaron and asked to make their idols to worship.
The result is a golden calf.

A later statement was made:
“O Israel, is thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt” (Exodus 32:4).
This is Aaron, Moses’ assistant pastor, and he himself was a prophet of God, joined the pagan nation of Israel.
In the next paragraph Aaron doing something that does not make sense to build an altar in front of the golden calf and said, “Tomorrow is a feast to the Lord” (Exodus 32:5).
He placed the worship of idols and the worship of God YAHWEH simultaneously. The next day, people get up early to make offerings at the altar, after that they are eating, drinking, and partying.

God hates mixture.
He commanded Israel: “Do marries two types of livestock and do not sprinkle your field with two kinds of seed, nor wear clothes made of two kinds of material (Leviticus 19:19).

We see this also in the New Testament.
Do not put old wine in a new place.
Believers should not be together with unbelievers. Light could not unite with darkness.

Is there mix it in us?
When we express worship to God, is there any idols we serve in our lives?
An idol can be anything that takes the place of God. Careers We can become “idols”
People we love or admire can be “idols”.
Ambition We can become “idols”.
Money can be “idols”.

Jesus said,
“Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve” (Matthew 4:10).
As the old preacher once said.
“If God is not a president in your life, He will not be a resident (one who lives) in your life.”
When there is a mix, there will be a lukewarm condition in our life that God would vomit (Revelation 3:16).
Decide today not to let the mixture of love and faithfulness to God.

Do you believe?

In a village, there is a mother who began to diligently pray upon hearing the pastor preach about faith as a mustard seed can move mountains.
He prayed for his long illness can be cured.
However, after a month of prayer, did not happen. and he was told the matter to the minister.
Finally the priest agreed to pray with her mother in front of him.
When selasai say “amen” and saw his son was not recovered, the mother says, “Right reverend sir, even from the beginning I’d guess that it’s not possible.”
Shaking his head, the preacher said, “Mom just not sure?! How healing can happen?”

Mom was just one example of the many believers whose attitude like that.
They claim to believe in God, but often do not believe that God is willing and able to help them.
It is not easy to believe in a difficult situation, as an officer who became aide king in the story “Crisis Samaria”
Samaria crisis occurred because it was surrounded by an army of Samaria in Aramaic.
Direct food prices soaring, pigeon droppings kab quarter alone cost five shekels of silver (2 Kings 6:25)
Even as the crisis was, until the event occurs cannibalism. It was horrible!
King can not do anything to resolve the crisis.
Unfortunately, rather than plead guilty because he could not be responsible for the welfare of people, instead he blamed Elisha.
In fact he intended to kill Elisha.
Even worse, the king blame God for the crisis was the great Samaritan.
Obviously, the king did not believe that God can help them.
As a prophet, Elisha had to convince the king that the crisis will soon be over, so that the food prices down and affordable for ordinary people.

But sadly, mistrust has now turned to the officer who became adjutant of the king.
His words clearly indicates disbelief.
“Even if God made the windows of heaven open, dishes that happen?”
Because of unbelief, he did not enjoy the blessings of God, even he finally dies trampled by the crowd.

Confidence will affect a person’s attitude to life, as well as influence the outcome of what is expected.
People who believe in showing respect to God in prayer and enthusiastic.
God will not remain silent, at the right time He will fulfill what is expected of the person.
If we are now being squeezed issue, whether the disease will not go away or financial difficulties, do not ever doubt God.
Believe with all your heart that God will show His love and His power.
Trust me up real miracle! ***

The root of bitterness is toxic waste!

Love Canal was a canal adjacent to the Niagara Falls.
This place became the world’s attention when it was discovered 21,000 tons of toxic waste.
It turned out to know that before some American companies that have been authorized by the U.S. government tried to bury toxic waste products underground.
They fill a large metal containers with chemical waste and other products that endanger lives.
Then the drums tightly closed and buried deep below the ground surface.
They thought that it would end there.

But over time, many of the container started to leak, and toxic waste began to seep to the surface, and cause all sorts of problems.
The problem was initially detected after the birth of the children in this area along with the disabilities, and many people began to die of cancer.
In addition, pets are also losing their feathers.
Finally the investigation after the matter Niagara Falls Gazette publish in 1976.
At long last, the blocks are overgrown by grass and is remembered as the worst environmental tragedy in the history of America.

As sewage plant after polluting the lives of those who exist Love Canal area, although it has been trying to hide.
So also if we keep the roots of bitterness, a time will inevitably lead to detrimental effects, both for himself and for many people.
The effects of the bitter root can leak out through anger, depression, feelings of worthlessness and other negative attitudes, which ultimately did not become a blessing to others.
And create ugly and polluted our lives as believers.

So, if we have a root of bitterness, then it would tarnish everything that came out of an attitude in us.
So it will damage relations with others, because we can not adjust to other people.
and other people did not like us.
David, in conjunction with Saul, do not try to keep the roots of bitterness, but his experience with Saul was very unpleasant.
The Bible records that he made no mistake, Saul always trying to kill him.
David had to live on the run, but he still did not keep the roots of bitterness, so that he could forgive Saul.

It is good if we pay attention to God’s Word;
“Take care that no one has distanced himself from the Grace of God, so that the roots do not grow bitter that led to riots and the defile many.” (Hebrews 12:15)
Overcome with no bitter root away from God’s Grace,
Always to maintain a relationship with God, and know him more deeply through His Word.
