Footsteps On The Alter

9 Mar

Footsteps On the Alter…

In ancient Israel, when a sacrifice was offered up, there was a required set procedure. The first part was called the Hikriv, which means, the bringing near of the sacrifice.

The sacrifice had to be brought near to the priest or into the dominion of the priest whose duty it was to perform the sacrifice.

Jesus was brought to the house of Caiaphas, and before the Sanhedrin, because the sacrifice had to be brought into the dominion of the priests to perform the Hikriv.

Jesus is the sacrifice – and those who have the sacrifice must perform the Hikriv. They must bring Him near.

Bring Jesus near to every part of your life, near to your hearts, near to your sin, near to your emotions, near to your past, near to your wounds, your secret things, your dreams – everything.

The whole point is that the sacrifice has to be brought near. Bring Jesus near to that part of your life that’s been distant – for that is where the blessing is.

Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Hebrews 10:22

Bring the Lord into every part of your life – especially those parts that have been distant, the wounds, the secrets, the shame, the ungodly part. Perform your Hikriv.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
