True sacrifices in the Spiritual Kingdom of YHVH
by Rav Sha'ul

 
           

The physical sacrifices defined in The Law are physical to spiritual parallels of  true Spiritual sacrifices to YHVH.  These true sacrifices in the spiritual realm are our affections toward YHVH expressed through our actions (faith without works is dead faith).  This is not a new concept limited to The New Testament.  King David proclaimed this reality in Psalms; clearly illustrating the spiritual Truth later to be revealed in The Yahushaic Covenant.  The true Altar of YHVH is in the heart and mind of the Body Temple and TRUE sacrifices are made on that altar not a physical one:

Psalms 51:17

"The (true) sacrifices of YHVH are a broken spirit (Spiritual); (offered on) a broken and a contrite heart (The True Altar), 0 YHVH, thou wilt not despise."

The Apostle Paul in his letter to the Roman Church, again illustrates this spiritual Truth concerning true sacrifices in the Spiritual Kingdom of YHVH:

Romans 12:1

"I beseech you therefore brethren, by the mercies of YHVH, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to YHVH, which is your spiritual worship."

It is in the keeping of Passover that we express our faith in The Passover Lamb and keep the memory of Yahusha’s sacrifice alive.  That is the spiritual equivalent of “sacrificing The Passover Lamb and pouring the blood of the Lamb over The Altar of YHVH” which is our hearts/minds.  Many say they have “faith in the blood of the Lamb” and then keep Easter.  True faith in the blood of the Lamb is expressed by “works” of The Law and YHVH and Yahusha and Paul all commanded we keep Passover! 

James 2:18

But someone may well say, "You have faith (alone) and (condemn me because) I have works (trying to work my way to heaven legalistically); show me your faith without the works, and I will show you my faith by my works."

We cannot “say” we have faith in Yahusha and then not keep Passover as Yahusha commanded.  That is dead faith and if we don’t keep Passover then our faith in The Passover Lamb is DEAD and your sin is not covered as we did not offer the spiritual sacrifice required.  If we don’t express our faith by our works of keeping The Passover, the blood of the Passover Lamb is not poured out over The Altar of YHVH on our behalf.  Everyone even demons know Yahusha is the Passover Lamb, but how many express that faith in Yahusha by being obedient to his command to keep Passover?  Faith expressed through actions of obedience makes us perfect.  We see that we are justified not by faith alone, but by faith combined with works:

James 2:14-26

14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

18 But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. 19 You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble! 20 But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?

21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar? 22 Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect? 23 And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” And he was called the friend of God. 24 You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.

25 Likewise, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out another way?

26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

In Chapter 12 I will fully establish the reality of The Law in The Kingdom of YHVH.

 

The Physical Shadow of Sacrifices Have Passed Away

We are taught that the physical sacrifices will be re-instated on a working altar.  This teaching is an abomination to Yahuah and our King Yahusha.  This would be the equivalent of crucifying Yahusha all over again.  Yahuah, through progressive revelation over time, has revealed the true meaning behind these physical sacrifices.  The physical sacrifices were always intended as a physical to spiritual parallel to teach us the meaning of “sacrifice” physically, so that we would mature from spiritual children to mature Sons/Daughters.

The people have always missed the point, believing in the physical sacrifice without understanding what it was supposed to be teaching them.  As if these physical shadows were the point!  They were never the point, the were pointing to true Spiritual attitudes.  We see this clearly in Micah:

Micah 6

6 With what shall I come before Yahuah and bow down before the exalted Elohim? Shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves a year old? 7 Will Yahuah be pleased with thousands of rams, with ten thousand rivers of olive oil?  Shall I offer my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul? (this is the attitude even today, as we are being taught to go backward in progressive revelation to shadows of physical altars and sacrifices)

 

8 Yahuah has shown you, O mortal, what is good (to sacrifice to please me). And what does Yahuah require of you? To act justly and to love, be merciful, and to walk humbly with your Elohim (physical sacrifices were pointing to Spiritual Character and Intent).

We see this reality, that physical sacrifices were never the point, and never please Yahuah.  He was seeking our obedience and giving physical thing to do so that we could demonstrate our love and obedience to him by making these sacrifices.

Psalms 141:2

Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.

 

Psalms 51:17

"The (true) sacrifices of YAHUAH are a broken spirit (Spiritual); (offered on) a broken and a contrite heart (The True Altar), 0 YAHUAH, thou wilt not despise."

 

1 Samuel 15:22

But Samuel replied: "Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the LORD? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams.

 

Psalm 107:22

Let them sacrifice thank offerings and tell of his works with songs of joy.

 

Psalm 116:17

I will sacrifice a thank offering to you and call on the name of the LORD.

 

Psalm 54:6

I will sacrifice a freewill offering to you; I will praise your name, LORD, for it is good.

 

Psalm 107:22

Let them sacrifice thank offerings and tell of his works with songs of joy.

The transposition of the sacrfices from physical to Spiritual was accomplished in The Yahushaic Covenant.  Yahuah is not going to violate this covenant by going back to a physical Temple, altar, and sacrifices.  They all have been transposed by Yahusha.

Yahusha revealed the transposition of the Passover Lamb from the physical sacrifices to what that sacrifice truly meant.  It was a physical shadow that was pointing to the coming Messiah.  We see Yahusha teach this transposition of the sacrifices on many occasions.

John 6:53
53 So Jesus said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in yourselves. 54"He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.…

We see Sha’ul understood the physical sacrifice of the Passover Lamb and taught that shadow has passed away.   

1 Corinthians 11:24
…23For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which He was betrayed took bread; 24and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, "This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me." 25 In the same way He took the cup also after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me."…

We see Sha’ul clearly teach that the sacrifices have been transposed into their final Spiritual State.  So has the sacrificial laws in the Torah, Melchizedek has come and now offers those sacrifices in the Spirit before the Throne of Yahuah. 

Hebrews 7:12

For when the (physical) priesthood (of Aaron/Levi) is transferred to heaven (to Melchizedek), of necessity (because The Law is what gives the authority to make sacrifices) there takes place a transposition of The Law (to heaven to serve Yahusha now as High Priest) also.

The Yahushaic Covenant is where all physical shadows find their fullest expression Spiritually

Hebrews 10

1 For the Law, since it has only a shadow of the good things to come and not the very form of things (which is Spiritually, true reality), can never, by the same (physical) sacrifices which they offer continually year by year, make perfect those who draw near. 2 Otherwise, would they not have ceased to be offered, because the worshipers, having once been cleansed, would no longer have had consciousness of sins? 3 But in those (physical) sacrifices there is a reminder (physical to spiritual parallel) of sins year by year. 4 For it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins. 5 Therefore, when He comes into the world, He says, (Psalm 40:6-8)  “Sacrifice and offering You have not desired, But a body You have prepared for Me; 6 In whole burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You have taken no pleasure. 7 “Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come (In the scroll of the Heavenly Book it is written of Me) To do Your will, O Yahuah.’” 8 After saying above, “Sacrifices and offerings and whole burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You have not desired, nor have You taken pleasure in them” (which are offered physically according to the Law until Yahusha came), 9 then He said, “Behold, I have come to do Your will.” He (Yahusha) takes away (the responsibility to offer physical sacrifices from) the first in order (of the Levitical Priests) to establish (the spiritual sacrifices in) the second (order of the Priesthood of Melchizedek). 10 By this will we have been sanctified through the (daily) offering of the body of the Messiah Yahusha (who was sacrificed) once for all (as The Passover Lamb). 11 Every priest (of Levi) stands daily ministering and offering time after time the same (physical) sacrifices, which can never take away sins; 12 but He (Yahusha as Melchizedek the Spiritual High Priest), having offered one (spiritual) sacrifice for sins for all time (as he stands before the spiritual Altar of YAHUAH daily offering the continual sacrifice as a Lamb that has been slaughtered), sat down at the right hand of Yahuah, 13 waiting from that time onward until His enemies be made a footstool for His feet. 14 For by one offering He has perfected for all time those who are sanctified (because he lives eternally offering his body as the daily sacrifice before YAHUAH). 15 And the Holy Spirit also testifies to us; for after saying,

16 This is the covenant that I will make with them
After those days, says the Lord:
I will put My laws upon their heart,
And on their mind I will write them,”

He then says,

17 And their sins and their lawless deeds
I will remember no more.”

18 Now where there is forgiveness of these things, there is no longer any (physical) offering for sin (because the sacrificed body of Yahusha is ever before the Throne of YAHUAH).

 

Revelation 5:6

Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing at the center of the throne

 

Romans 12:1

"I beseech you therefore brethren, by the mercies of YAHUAH, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to YAHUAH, which is your spiritual worship."

We are now in covenant with Yahuah through the mediator and High Priest Yahusha who offers the sacrifices as High Priest before Yahuah’s throne.  There will never be another working altar and physical sacrifices.  That would be an abomination to our King who gave his life to serve us as our Eternal High Priest.  Those who teach a physical Temple, physical Altar, and physical Sacrifices to not understand the nature and meaning of The Yahushaic Covenant.  Yahuah destroyed the Physical Temple… because those shadow pictures have been fulfilled and now exist in the Kingdom of Yahuah in the fullest expression as Yahusha fulfilled these shadows.
