Moses Commands Aaron to Offer Sacrifices

I’m beginning the study of this chapter on Good Friday and can’t help but think of the parallels.  God commanded Aaron and his sons and the people of Israel to sacrifice and that they would see the glory of the LORD.  On the original Good Friday, God Himself provided the sacrifice and showed the glory of the LORD with the Messiah’s resurrection three days later.  How marvelous is that! As the sacrifices that Aaron and the people made as atonement for their sin, Jesus’ sacrifice was an atonement for our sin.

Too often, we think of religious ceremonies and boring and pretentious.  This was neither – it was raw and bloody and then exciting and terrifying!  Can you imagine it?  God showing His Glory to the people and then consuming the sacrifices with His own fire!  We’ve put God into such a tame, boring, anemic box, but that’s a great misrepresentation.  When He shows Himself in the smallest way, we tremble in fear and are awestruck.  He is a consuming fire.

Remember always, both His sacrifice and His glory.
