THE Priesthood has been changed! Its now out of the tribe of Judah!

Heb 7:12 For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.
Heb 7:13 For he of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar.
Heb 7:14 For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.

I wonder that as well. I know some say its to remind people of what Christ did. Christ will be right there that is all the reminder I think will be needed.

Lord I pray I can post this response with a humble heart.

When Jesus comes back one of the things he does is the start of the sacrifices and offerings again. He doesn't institute sacrifice or offering for sin for he is that sacrifice, but the sacrifices and offerings that Jesus starts up again is all for praising God.

Lot's of Sacrifices and offerings in the bible was for non-sin reasons, Leviticus 2 and 3 Grain Offering and Peace Offering is 2 that I know of. The Nazarite vows have a sacrifice attached to it. Paul took that vow when he didn't cut his hair, in Corinthians and Acts it is mentioned. Some Sacrifices are going to be for re-enactment of some of the big celebration sacrifices from the Old Testament.

Going back to animal sacrifice

Come on now. Surely you know better than that if you have met the Master!

He cried "It is finished" that was the end of all sacrifice for sin. Jesus presented Himself as a Lamb without blemish and without spot......such as was required.

Salvation is now finished in Jesus. Completed......in Jesus Heb 10:26

Maybe the answer is that these sacrifices are not literal animal sacrifices but are spiritual sacrifices that happen now in Christ Jesus in the temple of God that He built made of His people.

Will there be animal sacrifice during the time of Jesus?? The bible certainly says so. It is the period of time after the rapture and tribulation and as humans are humans for sure there will still be sin.

Some say or interpret it to mean the law was never abandoned and salvation by grace is for our current church age. Once this age passes the Law returns.

As for me I simply have to say, as it has been proven the the Law does not work in any fashion for us, why would it be used again. So I have to simply think that along with some other things were written by those of that time, with their culture and understanding of things as they understood them.

So what do I do. I simply accept that God is the Wise one, he has much wisdom and it it not for me to worry about or to try to figure it out.

We are currently saved by grace, and God has said one day we will know all. So to try to figure it out, discuss it and be sure you have it figured out and say so only shows how silly we all are. Like God says, only he knows, and he laughs at scholars and wise men, as they do not have a clue as to what is fact.

So I read things like that and wonder, think about it a bit and then simply leave it to God. It will not effect us anyway, that is all for another time. But my opinion right or wrong is God is pretty smart, he will not put into place something that has already failed one time, and it may just be worded as it is due to the culture and understanding of the time.

Who knows? Only God I deal with it all very simply, he says only I know, you might think you do but you do not, and leave it at that and simply trust God. Works for me.

Well I see several problems with this interpretation here is some thoughts on it.

Firstly the bible does not show animal sacrifices in the millenium. That is something that gets assumed but that is not actually said. It gets assumed because is 66 speaks of sacrifices but the whole context is clear it is speaking about after the millenium.- Also because of the chapters in Ezekiel but that does not dictate the millenium either. It becomes assumed that Ezekiels temple must be in the millenium and the sacrifices must be literal but that is not the only possibility for those chapters.

Also why it is true that not all sacrifices were for sin, and so some could tecnically remain, the problem here is that God never desired sacrifice in the first place. And if other animal sacrifices were going to be needed after Christ came, then we would have commandment for them NOW.

If we do not have them now, then they can never be because salvation is only in the new covenant and that is an eternal covenant and a finished covenant in Jesus blood. There is no new covenant requirements for animal sacrifices.

However there IS sacrifices required in the new covenant. And they are all spiritual and they are all done by us in the SPirit. We are to both present out bodies as a living sacrifice- and we are to offer up the praise of our lips as an acceptable sacrifice which the OT calls the bullocks of our lips.

We should also keep in mind that we can prove that OT literal animal sacrifices were examples of spiritual sacrifices and truths.

To prove this firstly we see that Jesus is the fulfillment of the passover lamb. The original laws about passover in no way say that there will be a spiritual fulfillment of this but we know it is true.

We know that while Jesus was a lamb- so are we His lambs and we are to be led dumb to the slaughter just as He was and that He then provided and still provides that if we be sacrificed as he was, that we shall keep our life( the death angel passes over us) when we are told that if we lose our life for his sake we save our life. This is a spiritual sacrifice. It does not pay for sins as His did, but it kills the old man of sin our flesh.

these are just examples of many things that could be said for the real meaning if Ezekiel being prophetic of new covenant spiritual truth.

Just as the OT and laws were physical examples of new covenant spiritual truth.

Good Morning"

I suppose it is interesting and challenges the mind when one is bored and seeks to know what maybe we do not or should not know.

This kind of thing is a great danger to us all. To form opinions and to think we know when we do not. It can only create confusion and doubt. We do this to ourselves.

I know much better , but I was curious. Curious killed the cat.
I do not know what is to be, no one else does either. All I know is we are saved by grace. There is no other way. Jesus also says the scholars and teachers become so smart they are dumb. So I think just by trying to figure this stuff out we become dumb.

So I simply accept the fact we do not know, but that God does and he will always rule fair and true, that is enough for me.
