When I was young when I smelled, I was like Ohgrandma made that I couldn't wait. Have you ever just enjoy Ha Mell? Maybeit's a aroma from your childhood. Maybe it'ssomething your mom made or grandmother made. Maybe it's roses, but you justget around something and you just breathe it in and it justrelaxes. You takes you to almost a haven, a sweet place, a place of justrest, no God as a special aroma that he enjoys as mu. Just does. God, too, has a very special ARROA that he enjoys. We are now starting the book ofLevitiand. Our reading, for today is OVITICA's chapters. One three fourOlbenicus was written around fourteen fifty BC around that Sant Dime Biriadthat Genesis d exodus was written. It...

...was written by Motis its part of thefirst five books of the Bible, known as the Pinta Fi, the pintatuk genesis,exes liticus numbers Duderotomi were now in Leviticas and so Moses wroteGetusis. He took us through the creation. All the way too, at the timeof Joseph, then we moved to Joe Jo, would haveoccurred sometime around the time of Abraham, wo Thosnd and one twenty twoHUNDREDBC after we went to through the book of Job, we went back to exodus andfour hundred years later after Joseph were introduced to Moses, we just madhim through the end of exodus. Now working into the book of Labiticus andlvinicus. The first four letters of that book, Lee byLevincus, has to do with the work of the levies. It has to do with thesacrificial system, and so a lot of loviticus has to do with a toemen withsacrifice and were introduced to that almost immediately in loviticouschapters, one through four, but it covers this concept of asacrifice for sin or in Atonement. I'm going to read out of avinicuschapter one versus one through nine andthen. The Lord called to Moses andspoke to him from the tenamed saying, speak to the sons of Israel and say tothem. When any man of you brings an offering to the Lord, you shall bringyour offering of animals from the herd of the flow. If his offering is a birdoffering from the herd, he shall offerm...

...a male without devact. He shall Oferimat the doorway of the tent of meeting that he may be accepted before the war.He shall lay his heand on the head of the Bernoffer that it may be acceptedfor him to make atoment. Oh here's Bu ar he shall flay the young bull before thewar and Arand sons, the priest, Sholl Uprup, the blood and sprinkle the blotaround on the altar. That is at the doorway of the tenof meeting. He shallthen scan the burn offering and cut it Ino its pieces, the sons of air and thepriests shall put fire on the altar and arrange wood on the fire. Then Arand sons, the priest, Shell,arrange the pieces, the eds wit over the wood, which is on the fire that ison the altar. Its intrap, however, and its wegs. He shall wach with water andthe priest shall offer up and smoke all of it Onthe Altar for a burn of anofering by fire of a soothing aroma to the floor. What a beautiful picture we have here, this Awpera this wholburn of, is to bean offering. That is, an atonement for a person see and that persons to come and Lai hishands over symbolizing. That transference of hissin to this offer, and then this offering covers his sin and this innocent animal who had donenothing wrong. Who is now asubstitute...

...for the person who seen and has to diein his place? Ia Sweet Aroma to the war, don't mes what God is teaching us here.Even from the opening pages of the VIIS, the Holburn autor was the primaryalfering of the sacrificial system for Israel. It was the one on which thesacrificial system was Bil and this whole whole. The entire whol bar overunto the war is a offering for sin. It is asacrifice to a tone and cover for sict. It was necessary so that the personcould enjoy a relationship with God, because Siad had broken thatrelationship and there had to be a substitute tocover that Sen. when that substitute covered that se,then one could have a relationship again with God. It was offered daily on behalf ofIsrael. It was an a toling sacrifice and it would hae tone both for the Simsof the individual who offered it and for the Simse of the nation and such a doment would remove God'srighteous indignation against sin, making the center innocent and capableof a relationship with God. I I think it's pretty easy to see howthis atom woul point to the Cross. How looking back and through the wisdom of the rider ofHebrews, were told that no animals...

...could ever the tone forseen that makessense. Only man can pay for me and seen, and so these innocent animals couldn'ta tone for manseeing, but they were pointedg to one who would and it's interesting that God ends this text on this sacrifice by saying it's asweet aroma to him. There's no question the wholeburnoffering pointed towards Jesus Cris. That Jesus would be the sacrifice formy seens that my seves would be laid upon him and that sacrifice he paid would removeGod's anger and remove my sean and it was a sweet aroma to the farmy small mine still struggles with Isa when he would say it, please, the father to bruise the sthat powerful passage of the suffering servint there, and I still think how can it please afather, the most loving, basically love itself. What obvios? Howcould it please Lov the FA? The bruice is only begotsit. Wouldn'tplease me to bruthe my children and so my mind still struggles wrappingmy itself around that concept an yet...

I know it wasn't. The bruisy thet pleased the father. It was what the bruising did. It was what was accomplished throughthe bruising God is not some sort of sedistant God that's pleased by such no.It was what the bruisy did. WHATAN amazing love, the father would ruise his own side and that bruising would be please into you, because it brought a relationship withyou. It brought a relationship with me whatamazing lagod loved us so much for God, so love the world. The gave his only begutthat bruising ofthe Sun Amazing Loeand. It pleased him because of what he gained through itgaining you GAININGMEA. Now we reflect on this Atoma, which WasnanAroma, which pleased go an aroma that was sweet smelling to the war. God breathes in the sacrifices pointingto the sacrifice of his own son and looking to the cross, he seez therelationship that such sacrifice braains with you and I and a smile comes across his pace as he looks Tho the Cross...

...and he recalled you and he recalls me and he dheligts, and how special we are the apple of his eye. He smiles perhaps closing his eye, rememberingyou, the Cross of Christ, is a sweet smelling aron to our far because of you, because of me. He breathed in that aroom thinking of uswhat incredi o. You can rest assure that this day youare special, your love, your want, so much so that the god of the universe would be pleased to give his onlybegottanceon for you to have a relationship with you're desired by the only one thatmatters, and so just as our father looks to the cross, maybe closes his eyes and breath inthat sweeteroma. Thinking about you and the smile comes across his face. Stilltoo today she clos your eyes. Won't you take a deep breath, be swept away to a place of peace, place of joy. A relationship would lie a relationship with God. Won't you just be swept away to the place where yourfather is and make such...

...renusually bring. You peace, bring you wi what a wonderful, wonderful, passge! Well tomorrow, we'll be in moviticuschapter five Thir seven, I love lovidicas. I believe it is the most Newtestament book in the old test. We saw it even today, poining to the cross,but we look foward to what we're going to learn tomorrow, as we make our way through this book.Let me gray for us as we close father. We thank you so much, even as our mindsto this day have a difficult time grasping how I pleased you to to bruise your son, but we know it did because you say so and we know the reason it pleased. Youis not because you get some sort of joy out of brutein your son, but rather it pleased you to brusy because of what it brought about at you so loved me, je so loved us to so love ter.
