Consecrated by bread

When it was time to distribute the bread of the sin offering among the sons of Aaron the scene must have been moving. One did not need to consider how much of that consecrated bread was one’s share. A crumb sufficed to make an already holy person more so.

It shall not be baked with leaven. I have given it as their share from My offerings by fire; it is most holy, like the sin offering and the guilt offering. Every male among the sons of Aaron may eat it; it is a permanent ordinance throughout your generations, from the offerings by fire to the Lord . Whoever touches them will become consecrated.’ ”


The changes this procedure was supposed to have brought about are now known to be dead in the water. No-one is getting holiness from eating bread baked in an oven.

Thanks are due to God for rescuing us from that futility.

For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world. John 6:33
