all the significance
devotions from Jefferson Vann # 2350
Num 28:16 “On the fourteenth day of the first month is Yahveh’s Passover,
Num 28:17 and on the fifteenth day of this month is a feast. Seven days will unleavened bread be eaten.
Num 28:18 On the first day there will be a sacred convention. You will not do any ordinary work,
Num 28:19 but offer a fire offering, an ascending offering to Yahveh: two bulls from the herd, one ram, and seven male lambs a year old; see that they are perfect;
Num 28:20 also their tribute offering of fine flour mixed with oil; three tenths of an ephah will you offer for a bull, and two tenths for a ram;
Num 28:21 a tenth will you offer for each of the seven lambs;
Num 28:22 also one male goat for a mistake offering, to provide reconciliation for you.
Num 28:23 You will offer these besides the ascending offering of the morning, which is for a regular ascending offering.
Num 28:24 In the same way you will offer daily, for seven days, the food of a fire offering, with a soothing aroma to Yahveh. It will be offered besides the regular ascending offering and its drink offering.
Num 28:25 And on the seventh day you will have a sacred convention. You will not do any ordinary work.
Num 28:26 “On the day of the firstfruits, when you offer a tribute offering of new grain to Yahveh at your Feast of Weeks, you will have a sacred convention. You will not do any ordinary work,
Num 28:27 but offer an ascending offering, with a soothing aroma to Yahveh: two bulls from the herd, one ram, seven male lambs a year old;
Num 28:28 also their tribute offering of fine flour mixed with oil, three tenths of an ephah for each bull, two tenths for one ram,
Num 28:29 a tenth for each of the seven lambs;
Num 28:30 with one male goat, to provide reconciliation for you.
Num 28:31 Besides the regular ascending offering and its tribute offering, you will offer them and their drink offering. See that they are perfect.
all the significance
Did the Israelites understand all the significance of these instructions from Moses? Do we? Everything God wanted his people to do would not only reflect back on his deliverance of his people from Egypt, but also forward to his deliverance through Christ. I don’t think we have come close to understanding what God is saying here. Someday, we will know fully. Now, we see everything through a cloud.
LORD, give us the wisdom to follow your commands given by Christ, even when we do not understand all the significance of those commands.
