Numbers 19:2 “‘This is the statute of the law which the Lord has commanded, saying, “Speak to the sons of Israel that they bring you an unblemished red heifer in which is no defect and on which a yoke has never been placed.”’”
NEEDED FOR PURIFICATION
Do you want to read some exciting news? Then go to this site. http://news.prophecytoday.com/2018/09/a-red-heifer-has-been-born-in-israel_11.html This is big news concerning the rebuilding of the temple since the red heifer is necessary for the purification necessary to restart the temple worship.
While this may seem huge, and it is for prophecy, it is NOT necessary for Christ’s followers to worship. This may usher in the return of Christ sooner, but it does not affect our worship of our Lord. We have the perfect sacrifice. We have been purified through the blood of the lamb.
“Okay Carl, I want to see you apply this verse to my kids.” Alrighty, here I go. Your children are going to see people do all kinds of things in the name of “worship.” They are going to see people worship in a variety of ways. They will be told by others that you have to do this or do that to truly worship. It’s your job to show them that we just need to worship in spirit and in truth.
Our worship does not require any kind of animal sacrifice. Our worship does not require any kind of external purification. Our worship is pure and sacrificial as we bow before our Lord and God proclaiming the name of Jesus, the Messiah. That’s how you apply this verse to your kids.
But let me ask you this. Are you truly worshipping the way our Lord asks? Are you in the Spirit and in truth? Do you focus on Him and not yourself? Bow before Him now and seek His face. He will be glad to show Himself to you.
