DEUTERONOMY 27:7

DEUTERONOMY 27:7
Also sacrifice peace offerings on it, and celebrate by feasting there before the Lord your God.

MOSES JUST FINISHED SHARING WITH HIS PEOPLE WHAT GOD HAD TOLD HIM. 

GOD WAS MAKING A COVENANT WITH THE ISRAELITES, PROMISING THEM A LAND FLOWING WITH MILK & HONEY. THEIR PART IN THE COVENANT WAS TO KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS, & WALK IN HIS WAYS.

JERUSALEM, YEAR OF JUBILEE CELEBRATION, 2017

THEY WERE TO SHOW THEIR APPRECIATION NOW BY BUILDING AN ALTAR AND GIVING SACRIFICES OF PEACE OFFERINGS. HE TOLD THEM TO CELEBRATE THE EVENT BY HAVING A FEAST.

ALTHOUGH WE TEND TO FEEL THIS HAS NO MEANING FOR US NOW, BECAUSE WE DO NOT HAVE TO MAKE “SACRIFICES” per se, “PEACE OFFERINGS,” etc.,  THE PARALLEL IS OUR ONGOING REPENTANCE OF DAILY SIN, & OUR SACRIFICE OF PRAISE & WORSHIP, FOR WE ARE TO WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT & IN TRUTH. LET US BE MINDFUL OF THIS CALL TO OBEDIENCE.
