Genesis 8:20 Then Noah built an altar to the LORD and took some of every clean animal and some of every clean bird and offered burnt offerings on the altar.
The following article (italics) is from Breaking Israel News.
The Sanhedrin is advocating for the establishment of an Organization of 70 nations based on Mount Zion and as part of this effort, facilitated an animal sacrifice to renew the covenant that Noah made in the name of all mankind with God when he exited the Ark. That sacrifice took place on Thursday on the Mount of Olives. I reported on the event and would like to give a personal account here but first I feel I must begin with several disclaimers…
Before everyone in the Christian community gets all excited and freaks out about animal sacrifices… A few thoughts on the article.
Yes, this was an animal sacrifice. This was not a sin offering. The point was to renew Noah’s covenant on behalf of the gentile world. This sacrifice was not taking the place of Jesus.
Yes, Jesus is our sacrifice for our sins. And yes, animal sacrifices for sin are no longer necessary.
Hebrews 7:27 He has no need, like those high priests, to offer sacrifices daily, first for his own sins and then for those of the people, since He did this once for all when He offered up Himself.
Hebrews 10:10 And by that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
Hebrews 10:12 But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, He sat down at the right hand of God…
Hebrews 9:13-14 For if the blood of goats and bulls, and the sprinkling of defiled persons with the ashes of a heifer, sanctify for the purification of the flesh, how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God.
Yes, the animal sacrificial system will be re-instituted in Jerusalem. It is inevitable. This is a sign of the time leading up to the return of Christ. It is prophecy from Jesus Himself as He quoted the prophet Daniel.
Yes, the verses below from Daniel indicate there will be a Temple standing at this time. The Temple is going to happen. And yes, as believers in Christ our bodies are the temple indwelled with the Holy Spirit.
Daniel 9:27 And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week, and for half of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator.
Daniel 12:11 And from the time that the regular burnt offering is taken away and the abomination that makes desolate is set up, there shall be 1,290 days.
Please consider how to approach any one who does not believe in Jesus or Yeshua as Jews know His name. Please read the article and understand a Jewish mindset who does not believe in Yeshua.
I would encourage followers of Christ to approach those who do not know Yeshua in kindness, grace, and mercy. Go easy. Eventually, they are going take this very personally. This is how God or Hashem is going to reach His chosen people.
Zechariah 12:10 I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplication, so that they will look on Me whom they have pierced; and they will mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him like the bitter weeping over a firstborn.
He is coming back. Getting closer every day…
