Prior to Yeshua Messiah being manifested in the flesh and becoming the perfect sin offering, YeHoVaH’s people offered Burnt Offerings to atone for their sins. This was done to show appreciation to YeHoVaH and to appease Him, whose wrath they feared. Burnt Offerings, when done in obedience to Father’s Commandments, were a sweet-smelling fragrance to YeHoVaH our Elohim.
It wasn’t just the act of the Burnt Offering or the actual smell of the Sacrifice itself, it was obedience to Father’s Commands. This was the act of love for Father and repentance for wrongdoings represented in the Burnt Offerings. Although the Burnt Offerings were done according to the Law, and a sweet-smelling fragrance to YeHoVaH, the same Sacrifices repeated year after year could never make one perfect.
This teaching will address that even though we are no longer required to offer Burnt Offerings to atone for our sins, because Yeshua Messiah became the Sacrifice once and for all, YeHoVaH still requires His people to live a holy life, set apart, free of sin, and in obedience to all that He has commanded. This is an act or test of our faith which is like unto a sweet-smelling aroma that will reach the very Throne Room of Heaven.
In preparation for the teaching, How do you smell?, please read Hebrews 10:1-39.
