Good morning! I don’t know about you, but there are some antiquated laws in the State of Virginia that I’ve found absolutely ridiculous and wonder why they are still on the books. While other laws that are considered antiquated but are actually helpful make sense. Here are a couple of examples:
Virginians cannot spit on seagulls. What???? Was there really a need to put that on the books? Were people actually spitting on seagulls? And if they were, whyyyy?
In Prince William County, it is illegal for a motorist to park their vehicle on a set of railroad tracks. Well, duh! It’s actually a law everywhere in the United States I would think.
I remember when I was first saved, I could not understand why God required these sacrifices in the Old Testament. I thought they were harsh and cruel. But as I grew in grace and the Holy Spirit taught me, I began to “get it”! As I was taught about Christ’s fulfillment of these sacrifices, I saw that these same verses were a history lesson for me to learn from. I love how the Apostle Paul wrote about this to the Galatians:
It took a very Holy God to come to earth as a man so He could live a sinless life in order to become that perfect, spotless and sinless sacrifice for all mankind. As we look at the the different sacrifices mentioned in Leviticus 23:36-37, we see that one of those sacrifices was a drink offering. Why do you think that would that be necessary?
All the sacrifices point to Jesus Christ; this one in particular to Him being the Living Water. Jesus offers the water of life flowing from the Throne! All of the Holy Scriptures intertwine beautifully, don’t they? Man cannot live without water. It is the source of physical life itself! Jesus has the living water which is the source of eternal life!
Do you want that living water that will give you eternal life in Heaven? Do you know Jesus personally or do you only know of Him? I want to be sure that anyone who reads the posts on this blog can know beyond a shadow of a doubt that they are going to Heaven. Have you received Christ as your Saviour? If no, your sins are not covered by His sacrificial offering of Himself. You have not been redeemed by His blood. It is no coincidence that God has placed you here for such a time as this so that you may be saved if you are not already.
