Today the Lord told the children of Israel that whoever “…gives any of his descendants to Molech, he shall surely be put to death”. Molech worship involves child sacrifices. God takes very seriously the sacrifice of children and He will serve justice to those doing this sort of practice. The Lord then addresses the worship of mediums, cursing your parents, and sexual sin. If a person violates His commandments he will be either cut off from the people or killed.
The Lord goes on to give additional instructions for the priests on holiness. He tells them what sacrifices are acceptable. God says that the offerings “must be perfect to be accepted; there shall be no defect in it”. Hebrews chapter 10 explains that animal sacrifices just covered our sins but Jesus’s blood takes away our sins. “But in these sacrifices there is a reminder of sins every year. For it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.” (Hebrews 10:3-4) “…He does away with the first in order to establish the second. And by that we will have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.” (Hebrews 10:9-10) One day the Lord will do away with the sacrificial system and His Son will do for us what animal blood can’t but that is later in the Story so keep reading!
