the Evolution of the Sacrifice,

Believe me this today, people are evolving. It is not just a New Age thing, but a new way to describe humanity and the path that God has us on all together.

Those in religion are in a good group but with archaic models of thought, using old language, and holding on to old ways of doing things. Dare I even say it, the Bible truths need to presented in new ways with new words, and new paradigms, characters, and stories.

Back on topic, after a word study of ‘sacrifice’, in biblegateway.com, what is my analysis?

Psalm 141: ‘Prayer set before like incense, lifting up of my hands like evening sacrifice…’
Proverbs 15:18 – ‘LORD detests sacrifice of wicked but prayer of upright pleases…’
Proverbs 21:3 – ‘To do what is right and just more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice…’
Ecclesiastics 5:1 – ‘Go near to listen rather than offer sacrifice of fools…’
Isaiah 57:5 – ‘You burn with lust and sacrifice your children…’
Isaiah 66
Hosea 6:6 – I desire mercy not sacrifice + acknowledgement of God rather than burnt offerings…’
Jonah 1:16 – ‘fear the LORD, – then offer sacrifices and make vows to him…’
Mark 12:33 -“To love him with all your heart…love your neighbor as yourself…more important than all burnt offerings and sacrifices…’
Ephesians 5:2 – fragrant offerings,
Phil. 4:18 – a fragrant offering – acceptable sacrifice,

and who can forget Romans 12, what is your analysis?

Love,
