The Mystery Of The Scapegoat People

The Mystery Of The Scapegoat People…

A scapegoat is someone you blame for your problems, someone you cast your sins upon. Of all the peoples in history, one stands above all for being the scapegoat of the nations… the Jewish people.

From ancient times to our day, the Jews have been the most accused and vilified of peoples. Israel is the scapegoat nation. For this is the same nation that God linked to the scapegoat three thousand years before.

Only the Jews have Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, which involves placing sins on the goat’s head, who then escapes carrying the iniquities of the nation. Jesus is the King of the scapegoat nation who took the sins of all upon Himself and carried them away.

If you belong to Jesus, you too must be a little scapegoat called to bear the burdens, iniquities, even the unjust treatment of others, and love them in return. The Lord, your Scapegoat, bore your burdens to bring you salvation, so you are called to be a little scapegoat, to bear the burdens of those around you, so you might also bring them salvation.

God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. 2 Corinthians 5:21

Purposely ask those around you how they’re doing today; and if they start to unload the burdens of their heart, use it as an opportunity to bare their burdens and share the love of God with them.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
