In Leviticus 6, the Lord instructs Moses regarding the Burnt Offering. In verse 6, God admonishes Moses and Aaron to never let the fire on the altar go out. That instruction is just as important today. We no longer offer animal sacrifices on an altar, but Rav Shaul (Paul the Apostle) tells us in Romans 12:1 that we should be a living sacrifice. For us to be a proper servant of God we need to keep our faith on fire. Don’t ever let the fire of your faith go out. Read the Bible, Pray, and care for your brothers and sisters in the faith. Keep the Fire Burning!
1 Corinthians 15:20 But now Messiah has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.
The resurrection of Yeshua is of utmost importance because if God had not raised Him from the dead, then we would have no life after this earthly existence is completed. This week we celebrated the deliverance of the Israelites from the slavery of Egypt with a Passover Seder. At the same time we acknowledge the deliverance from the slavery of sin for those who put their faith and trust in Yeshua, the Son of the living God. Now for the Feast of First Fruits we celebrate the One who is the first of a great harvest of souls. His resurrection guarantees the harvest.
Come worship with us this Shabbat as we explore the concept of resurrection.
