Knowledge Message for August 14, 2014 - Exodus 29:35-37
35 And thus shalt thou do unto Aaron, and to his sons, according to all that I have commanded thee; seven days shalt thou consecrate them.
36 And every day shalt thou offer the bullock of sin-offering, beside the other offerings of atonement; and thou shalt do the purification upon the altar when thou makest atonement for it; and thou shalt anoint it, to sanctify it.
37 Seven days thou shalt make atonement for the altar, and sanctify it; thus shall the altar be most holy; whatsoever toucheth the altar shall be holy.
The Seven Day Ritual
The ordination sacrifices were to be repeated for seven days - a full week - and the altar, since it was made with human hands, was to be cleansed by sin offerings for seven days during the consecration period. It would then be holy, and it would make anything that touched it holy as well.
The Christian has been made holy by the blood of Christ himself (Heb 9:12). Therefore they, as priests before him (1 Pet 2:9), may and should continuously enter boldly into service for their King (Heb 9:14).
Let us Read Romans 12 and keep it in our hearts each day.
