Mat 9:13 But go and learn what this means: 'I desire mercy, not sacrifice.'* For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners."

Hsa 6:6 For I desire mercy, not sacrifice, and acknowledgment of God rather than burnt offerings.

Hbr 10:38 But my righteous one will live by faith.
And if he shrinks back,
I will not be pleased with him.
---Andrea on 8/30/07

For if he were on earth, he (Jesus) should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according to the law. Hebrews 8:4 /// Paul was arrested in the Temple. Acts 21:30

Linda, school starts early where you are. I'm not ready for the start of school yet. I enjoy summers where I am, 1 small block from the water. We live in a great neighborhood, with a beach association on Long Island sound. It's a wonderful place for families with children. God's playground, beach, rocks, water, is the best. There's no lack of things to do, explore. I really enjoy having my grandchildren there (ages 8 months, and 1 soon to be 3)

Camping is a lot of fun. We don't do that very often. It is quite hot here right now. School is about to start next week and it will just be Autumn and myself at home during the day. Whatever are we going to do with ourselves?
---Linda on 8/7/07

Linda, sorry no response...been away camping with kids. Believe me, I can be a party pooper too and get uptight about certain things...especially if it involves safety. I too do shopping almost daily because there's no way to fit a weeks worth of food in the fridge...hope you've been well.
---christina on 8/7/07

10 huh? I am humbled.

I have to admit that we are the gathering place too. Seems like we are everywhere we go. We have had, at least on one occasion, 12 teenagers either in the house or outside in a tent...boys outside, girls inside. However, unlike you, I get a little "tight" when kids start jumping on beds, sliding across coffee tables, and getting into the refrigerator. I send them home. I am a party pooper :(
---Linda on 7/24/07

Sadly enough, they don't find much in the refrigerator since I buy on a day to day basis. If I buy a week's worth or a month's worth, they eat it all up in a day. Yes, a day's worth is safe. And if they eat all that up, I can tell them that we don't have anything else.
---Linda on 7/24/07

Linda, I can certainly relate to being around a lot of children all the time since I have 10, and it seems most of the neighborhood children gather at my house/yard. There's much activity and a lot of fun and love. We have brought a few to attend services with us and seen some saved. There's much life and laughter, good medicine for the soul.

Thank you Joseph and Linda, it is a joy to read your posts for there is truly life in them, and I, and surely many others are built up in the Lord by what the Holy Spirit says through you. Your posts are full of the living Word, not human wisdom but wisdom from above and I look forward to reading them. In His presence there is fullness of joy! To God be the glory.

Animal Sacrifice could do nothing to deliver conscience from a dread of the wrath of God. Animal Sacrifices the purpose was not only to create communion between God and man, rather, The "Sacrifice" represented the principle that without the shedding of BLOOD, there is NO forgiveness of SINS. >>>Christ offered Himself as the final and perfect Sacrifice for our Sins. [Hebrew 9,11-14]
---catherine on 7/22/07

Thank you, Joseph. I have just loved Christina since the first response I read of hers. And Joseph, your responses as well are ones that I read over and over, gleaning the Spirit of Christ in you found in them. I appreciate your testimony.
---Linda on 7/22/07

Christina, I am 42 and have found I don't always act my age either. I blame it on being around five kids all the time :)
---Linda on 7/22/07

Christina, Linda. I can see why there is a spiritual connection between the two of you. You both have such a beautiful way of articulating your thoughts. Direct, simple, yet with a depth of insight & understanding that truly blesses me. I know neither of you are looking for any praise from man, I simply want to share my personal appreciation of your post & the Godly example the two of you demonstrate though your Christ like maturity. Thank you & keep blessing
---joseph on 7/21/07

Linda, the testimony you give gladdens my heart. Praise God for what He has done and is doing in these young lifes. By the way, I just turned 49, tho I may not act like it sometimes. Thank you for your kind words and encouragement. Also, I'm from new england, a bit of distance from you, but God willing, we may worship together some day.

Jesus, is our substitute sacrifice.

Actually, Jesus is the sacrifice, and animals were the substitute sacrifice, representing Jesus' sacrifice.

Jesus Christ was the final sacrifice. Sometimes he is referred to as the sacrificial Lamb. We no longer need to sacrifice animals on a Golden Altar. His Blood was sprinkled upon the throne of God on behalf of the sins of all mankind. We need only to believe that he came,died on the cross for us,was burried, rose from the dead and was resurrected from the dead for our sins and at that time to repent from our sins. That is the way to salvation through faith by the grace of God.

Christina, I don't know how old you are or where you are from but we have a Christina in our fellowship too. She is 15 I believe and very dear to my heart. She was one of the young ladies who recommitted her life to Christ and was re-baptized Sunday. Her younger brother (the seven year old) received Christ one Sunday while their mother was prophesying from the praise and worship team.
---Linda on 7/18/07

Every time I read one of your posts, I have a hard time separating you from the Christina in our fellowship. That makes me smile. I recognize the hunger and the humility.
---Linda on 7/18/07

Linda, thanks for your comments about the golden vs the brazen altar, something I was not aware of. I have learned much from your posts, and am encouraged regularly by the spoken word...

Jesus Christ was the FINAL sacrifice. Other than that, we must die to ourself (will, ways) daily.
---Leslie on 7/16/07

Faith in the sacrifice of the Lamb of God and the daily sacrifice as Paul said "I die daily."
---Frank on 7/15/07

There never was a sacrifice on the GOLDEN alter in the temple. The golden altar is where the incense was offered. The OT sacrifices took place on the BRAZEN altar. There is a big difference given the fact that gold indicates divine nature and brazen (brass) indicates judgment. With that cleared up, we have:

Just as Moses lifted up the (brazen) serpent in the wilderness, so also shall the Son of Man be lifted up and....

Now is the judgment of this world, now is the prince of this world cast out. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto Me. This He spake signifying the death He would die.

1) Psalm 40:6
Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but my ears you have pierced , , burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not require

Hosea 6:6
For I desire mercy, not sacrifice, and acknowledgment of God rather than burnt offerings.
---christina on 7/15/07

2) Hebrews 10
...those sacrifices are an annual reminder of sins, 4because it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.
5Therefore, when Christ came into the world, he said:
"Sacrifice and offering you did not desire,
but a body you prepared for me,
6with burnt offerings and sin offerings
you were not pleased.
7Then I said, 'Here I amit is written about me in the scroll
I have come to do your will, O God.' "
---christina on 7/15/07

3) 8First he said, "Sacrifices and offerings, burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not desire, nor were you pleased with them" (although the law required them to be made). 9Then he said, "Here I am, I have come to do your will." He sets aside the first to establish the second. 10And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
---christina on 7/15/07

4) 11Day after day every priest stands and performs his religious duties, again and again he offers the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. 12But when this priest had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God. 13Since that time he waits for his enemies to be made his footstool, 14because by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.

Sacrifice is not done away with, but carries a different meaning. It's not the cutting of goats, but the personal sacrifice we, as Christians, must do on a daily basis - to sacrifice ourselves.

"To OBEY is better than sacrifice..." 1 Samuel15:22-23, 1Peter2:4-24, Heb9:26
Paul takes the Nazarite Vow. Acts 21:17-26, Philippians 4:14-18

Jesus sacrifice on the cross.
---Marcia on 7/14/07

Animal sacrifices were done away with when Jesus died on the Cross. The animal sacrifices pointed to the true Lamb of God Jesus Christ.

Malachi 1:11 "For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same my name [shall be] great among the Gentiles, and in every place incense [shall be] offered unto my name, and a pure offering: for my name [shall be] great among the heathen, saith the LORD of hosts."

We gentile Catholics make that pure offering every day from the rising of the sun to the setting of the same.

There is no need for sacrifice.
As Jesus said "It is finished"

Mima-I have yet to find a christian who can show me that G-d said that his Torah was temporary until Messiah comes to take it away. Most that I show this error of replacement theology to, repent of their sin and start to live obedient lives to G-d through the Holy Spirit empowering them to keep the Torah.
---Jeff on 9/6/06

Mima- I AM an Orthodox jew, and can attest that your statement that it torments every orthodox jew is not correct. We all know that sacrifices never saved, that is just a lie invented to make jews seem hopelessly lost. There is not one verse in the Tanach that states that the sacrifices were for salvation. Unfortunately, most christians who don't read their bible, assume that it was once salvation by works and that it changed.
---Jeff on 9/6/06

Old Testament teachings required a sacrifice. And the Jewish people who are Orthodox Jews today are without the place of sacrifice(temple destroyed in 70 A.D.) therefore the Orthodox Jew cannot possibly rid himself of his sins because he cannot have sacrifices. This truth torments every rational Jewish adult today.

Daniel 10:27. And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week, but in the middle of the week he will put a STOP to SACRIFICE and GRAIN OFFERINGS;and on the wing of abominations one who makes desolate,even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed,is poured out on the one who makes desolate. Be careful in saying that the Messiah put an end to sacrifices lest you compare his work to the antichrist.

Christ was our sacrifice. Because of this, we have no need of sacrifice today for the purpose of attonement for sin(s). You might want to read the complete book of Hebrews in the NT. Here are some specific references for you: 1 Corinthians 15:22, Hebrews 9:26 and Hebrews 10:12

the old testiment sacrifices were replaced with the Lamb of God. Behold the Lamb of God which taketh away the sins of the world.

1 Corinthians 10:16 " The cup of blessing that we bless, is it not a participation in the blood of Christ? The bread that we break is it not a participation in the body of christ?" Malachi 1:11 " For the rising of the sun, even to its setting, my name is great among nations, And everywhere they bring sacrifice to my name, and a pure offering."
---Ruben on 8/13/06

Almighty God himself has provided the perfect sacrifice for us that sacrifice was his son the Lord Jesus Christ. Today there exists no need for further sacrifice, no today we need to accept the sacrifice that Jesus Christ made for us.
---mima on 8/13/06

There is no more sacrifice today. When Jesus Christ cried out from the Cross "It is finished" He brought a total end to sacrifice. Jesus was the last Adam and in the Sacrifice of Himself on the Cross for sin, He brought a total end to the sacrificial system. It was all a foreshadow and type of the one true Sacrifice Jesus Christ.
