Leviticus Lessons: Conclusion

Good Morning Everyone,
I hope that you all are doing well on this fine Friday.  On November 18, 2009, I started this series on Leviticus Lessons touching on the area of offerings.  It has been a while since our last Leviticus Lesson, but I am finally sitting down to finish out the series just over 2 months later.  I have been determined to get this done as I believe the lessons have information the enemy doesn't want you to know.
The last time we talked about the 5th offering, which was the Tresspass Offering. Today, I will briefly touch on one more special type of offering and we will wrap things up with some other points of interests.
The Consecration Offering was a part of the process to ordain Priests.  Actually, the description and direction was given by God in Exodus 29
"This is what you are to do to consecrate them, so they may serve me as priests: Take a young bull and two rams without defect. - Exodus 29:1
The offering was carried out by Moses for Aaron and his son's in Leviticus 8.  You can find more information on the following two links:
Those two sites go into detail about the consecration and the offering.  I wanted to make mention of this offering, because it is in Leviticus 7:37, but it is kind of thrown in there.  It made me scratch my head in confusion for a moment as all the other offerings were described, but that one wasn't.
God took a lot of time to explain in detail the different offerings because He wanted them to get it right.  Remember, the offerings were satisfactory, but did not solve the ultimate problem.  No matter how much the people tried to make atonement for their sins, they still had to perform an offering every time a sin or tresspass was committed.  An offering was required to givve God thanks and to commune with Him, BUT....(I know that you have to know where this is going!)
JESUS!  Jesus became the ultimate sacrifical lamb. Christ...
  1. nullified Gods wrath against us (Burnt Offering)
  2. is a reminder of how God brought them out of bondage (Meat Offering)
  3. gave access to God in order that we may give to the Father freely (Peace Offering)
  4. made atonement for our sins (Sin & Tresspass Offerings)
It is more than just a Sunday morning sermon, but Jesus did do it. You've always heard that He came and died for our sins and to the fulfill the law. Christ came so that He can die that we might live.  You've all heard it before but I hope now you see how it all ties together. 
Be easy fam and have a great weekend!
