Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“After The Offering Comes the Glory”
Text: Leviticus 9:1-2
“It came to pass on the eighth day that Moses called Aaron and his sons and the elders of Israel.
And he said to Aaron, “Take for yourself a young bull as a sin offering and a ram as a burnt offering, without blemish, and offer them before the LORD.”
This Principle that “After the Offering Comes The Glory,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
After this week of consecration of Aaron and his sons, their sin offering, burnt offering, and peace offering was repeated on the 8th day. The Biblical number of 8 means “New Beginnings.” This was the beginning of a new ministry through Aaron and his sons.
After the Offering Comes the Glory of New Beginnings.
As a kingdom of priests to God, this shows us that the best we can do needs to be repeated every day. We are presenting ourself daily as a Living Sacrifice unto God as our reasonable service. (Rom.12:1-2).
Our King and Commander Jesus Christ presented Himself to Yahweh as One Offering that fulfilled All Offerings Forever!
“And every priest stands ministering daily and offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins.
But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God,
from that time waiting till His enemies are made His footstool.
For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.”(Heb.10:11-14).
This Holy Week of Consecration for Jesus is leading Him to the Cross where New Beginnings will be birthed!
The sin that separated Mankind from God will be taken away, forever, by the Blood of One Perfect Offering! Ooooh Rah!
Every day with Jesus is a New Beginning; because After our Living Sacrifice Comes His Glorious Presence in our life; for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner.
He lives forever as our High Priest.
We live forever as a living sacrifice to Him, for His service. Ooooh Rah!
Passion Week Devotional
Day 6 Today:
“The Cry of Perfect Love”
“Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.”
The Cry of Perfect Love is the Cry for Mercy!
The last day of the Son of Man on earth was marked by beatings, torture, and severe whipping all night until 9:00 am this morning - when His broken and beaten, Innocent Body was nailed to a Cross for 6 Agonizing hours of suffering. And in the last moments of His Life, the Cry of Perfect Love from the Cross, was the Cry for Mercy! Mercy for the wicked who hated Him, Mercy for the repentant thief, Mercy for Mary, Mercy from His Father Who turned His Face away from Him for the first time ever! A Cry of Mercy for a last sip of moisture so He could speak “It is Finished; as His Mission of Mercy was finished, and lastly, Mercy from His Father to receive His Offering of His soul (Isa.53:10).
Meditation: “The Cry of Love is Mercy”
Consider our ways:
When offenses come into my life what is my ‘first response?” Judgement or Mercy? What is the Cry of My Heart from the Cross of Offense?
“Oh God, help me to see others the way you see them - through Eyes of Mercy. Help me to remember that all of us are imperfect clay pots in need of Mercy....” May the Cry of our Life be The Cry of Mercy!Oooooh Rah!
