The Bikoreem Of Time

19 Sep

The Bikoreem Of Time…

One of the key concepts of the Hebrew Scriptures is the Bikoreem – the Firstfruits. Israel was called the Bikoreem, Firstborn of God. The Israelites were to offer the firstfruits of their flocks to the Lord.

Jesus Himself is called the Bikoreem – the firstfruits of the dead. And the day He rose was called Yom Ha Bikoreem… the Day of the Firstfruits. The principle or law of the Firstfruits was this – the firstfruits of everything belonged to the Lord.

You gave the first part of your blessings to God and by doing so you were dedicating and sanctifying all the rest. Now you have a new year before you. What kind of year do you want it to be? What kind of year do you need it to be?

Lift up the Bikoreem to the Lord. It’s the first hours, the first day, the first week, the first part of the New Year. Take new steps in repentance, in spreading the Gospel, in living holy, in winning the victory. You want a good and victorious year? Then start it now. Lift up your Bikoreem and the year will be blessed.

But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. 1 Corinthians 15:20

Think of one new step that you can take today to follow God’s will in a new way – and lift it up to God as your Bikoreem.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
