“The Priest Shall Make Atonement”
Text: Leviticus 14:20
“And the priest shall offer the burnt offering and the grain offering on the altar. So the priest shall make atonement for him, and he shall be clean.”
“The Priest Shall Make Atonement,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
Once again we see the model of the Work of our High Priest and Lord, Jesus Christ. He IS Our High Priest and Our Offering for Atonement!
He went outside the camp, leaving heaven, (Heb.13:11-13) and came to spiritual lepers like you and I. He walked and lived among us as the Perfect Offering for sin, becoming sins offering without becoming a sinner (2Corin.5:21).
And like the two living birds; His blood was spilled on a wooden cross, He tasted the bitterness of hyssop offered to Him, (John 19:17-18, 29), and blood and water flowed out of his wounded side (John 19:34). The bird that was set free with the evidence of the bird that was sacrificed is a picture of the physical resurrection of our Lord and Commander Jesus Christ; who lives forever bearing the evidence of His sacrifice, the scars on His nail-pierced hands and feet, and the wound on His side! The disciples and Thomas saw this in the Resurrected Jesus Christ:
“Then He said to Thomas, “Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be unbelieving, but believing.”(John 20:27).
Listen up Warrior! Since we have united ourself with the death of Jesus on the cross (by presenting our life to Him as a living sacrifice) (Rom.12:1-2),
we know that we shall also share in His Resurrection (Rom.6:5-8; 2Tim.2:11).
As our Commander Jesus Christ lives so shall you and I live forever with Him because Our High Priest Has Made Atonement for you and I.... Ooooh Rah!
