Burnt Offering

Hebrews 2:9-11
” 9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone.
10 For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. 11 For both He who sanctifies and those who are being sanctified are all of one, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren,”

The evils perpetrated by the devil’s henchmen on the Jewish people in the holocaust are a blight on the pages of history.  No person of decency will ever, EVER forget what happened to them, as much as some would like to sweep it under the rug.

We have all seen the horrific images of their terrible sufferings in those death camps during WW2, no doubt.  They are unimaginable, inhuman cruelties that defy description!!!

No:  WE WILL NEVER FORGET!

Earth-Shattering Definition.
Ever look up the definition of the word, “Holocaust?”  I was shocked when I first learned what it meant.

The first definition listed came as no surprise.  But the second one really got me.

Hol·o·caust:  noun
1. Destruction or slaughter on a mass scale, especially caused by fire or nuclear war.

Everyone knows that definition, right.  Now look at the second one:


2.  Historical definition:  

Holocaust is a word of Greek origin meaning “Sacrifice by fire.”  A Jewish sacrificial offering that is burned completely on an altar.  That’s Jesus!

 –
Box of tissues please!
That is why Jesus became sin for us.  That is what He went through to redeem us.

HE BECAME OUR HOLOCAUST.  He went through that holocaust for you and for me so that we would never have to endure it.

What do you say to such marvelous, incomparable love but thank you, thank you,  THANK YOU!!!  PRAISE YOU JESUS!!! 

FOREVER GRATEFUL!!!

He took all the bad He didn’t deserve and gave us all the good He did deserve.  That’s the definition of UNmerited favor.  THAT’S GRACE!

What a Savior!  And what a picture of what He went through to redeem all of us!  He became our Burnt Offering!
