Sacrifices and Offerings

 

Sacrifices and offerings fill the Old Testament, as in Ezekiel 45.13–17, because whole burnt offerings needed to be offered to the Lord as a sign that the worshiper had given himself totally to the Lord, and the people needed to make peace offerings to the Lord, showing that they wanted peace with Him, and this was all for making atonement.

Sacrifices and offerings highlight what is most important in our lives, our relationship with God, the Creator of heaven and earth.

When you make sacrifices in your life to serve Him, He notices and it touches Him. Keep doing it and He shall touch your life. DR

 

Time with the Lord

 

Peter warned that there would be people in the church, questioning the Lord’s faithfulness to His promise to return, because they will have seen so much time transpire since He made that promise.

However, the apostle filled us in on the nature of the Lord, “But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day” (2Pe 3.8).

Some have used that to mean that when you read prophecy and a “day” or “days” are mentioned, it should actually be read, “a thousand years,” but that is not the point of Peter.

He was merely telling us that time is not a factor with the Lord, unless, of course, He has made it a factor, but in the case of the Second Coming of Christ, He has not made time a factor.

That is why even after a couple of millennia, He is still true to His word. DR
