The Olah

6 Nov

The Olah…

In the Bible, there were several different kinds of sacrifices. The most awesome one was called the “Olah” and it means the burnt offering, a sacrifice.

In Psalm 97:9 it says, “You O Lord are most high and exalted.” That word, exalted is the Hebrew word Olah. In other words, God is exalted in a complete sacrifice that goes up to heaven.

Thus there is a link in Hebrew between praising the Lord, exalting the Lord and lifting up a sacrifice. When you praise Him you are lifting up a sacrifice. We must live a life of sacrifice. God gave everything for us.

He sacrificed Himself. Salvation is free but it is precious too. When you lift up your sacrifice to Him, your treasure, your goal, your will, your future; then you are praising Him.

When you have lifted it up to Him your total sacrifice then you have offered up your Olah. Bless the Lord with your Olah and God will be exalted in your life.

Through Jesus, therefore, let us continually offer to God a sacrifice of praise—the fruit of lips that openly profess his name. Hebrews 13:15

Lift up your sacrifice to God, and do so with praise, worship, and thanksgiving.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
