A WORTHY THANK OFFERING TO GOD

OBSERVATION: THIS STUDY ADDRESSES A THANK-OFFERING FOR MERCIES RECEIVED FROM GOD.

INTERPRETATION: LEVITICUS 7:12 (NKJV) IF HE OFFERS IT FOR A THANKSGIVING, THEN HE SHALL OFFER, WITH THE SACRIFICE OF THANKSGIVING, UNLEAVENED CAKES MIXED WITH OIL, UNLEAVENED WAFERS ANOINTED WITH OIL, OR CAKES OF BLENDED FLOUR MIXED WITH OIL. LEVITICUS 7:12 (THE BOOK) IF YOU PRESENT YOUR PEACE OFFERING AS A THANKSGIVING OFFERING, THE USUAL ANIMAL SACRIFICE MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY VARIOUS KINDS OF BREAD-LOAVES, WAFERS, AND CAKES-ALL MADE WITHOUT YEAST AND SOAKED IN OLIVE OIL.

POINTS TO PONDER:

THE SACRIFICE OF THANKSGIVING WAS A PUBLIC PROCLAMATION OF WHO GOD IS AND WHAT HE DOES. A THANKSGIVING OFFERING REQUIRED AN ANIMAL SACRIFICE AND THREE KINDS OF UNLEAVENED CAKES AND BREAD.

THE BIBLE USUALLY EQUATES LEAVENING TO SIN. LEAVENING’S DESIGN IS TO PERMEATE A LOAF COMPLETELY. ROMANS 6: 23 SPEAK TO “THE WAGES OF SIN BRINGING DEATH”. IT IS DEATH TO THE UNSAVED FOR REJECTING THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST AND BONDAGE TO THE CARNAL CHRISTIAN FOR LACK OF SPIRITUAL GROWTH. EITHER WAY INVITES DISASTER!

JESUS STATED IN JOHN 6: 35 THAT HE WAS THE BREAD OF LIFE. LUKE 22: 19-20 RECORDS JESUS LAST SUPPER. THE BROKEN BREAD WAS UNLEAVENED BREAD BECAUSE CHRIST WAS THE SINLESS, PERFECT SACRIFICE! HE WHO KNEW NO SIN WAS MADE SIN FOR US, THAT WE MIGHT BECOME THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD IN HIM (2 CORINTHIANS 5:21).

APPLICATION: HEBREWS 13:15 (THE BOOK) WITH JESUS’ HELP, LET US CONTINUALLY OFFER A SACRIFICE OF PRAISE TO GOD BY PROCLAIMING THE GLORY OF HIS NAME.
