Partake Of the Feast Of The Lord
God told Moses to make the altar of acacia-wood about five cubits long, five wide and three cubits high. A crate made of a network of bronze was also made (Exodus 27: 1-8).
As I was reading the description of the altar, I suddenly had an image of a rustic barbecue. The animals were first killed without any suffering, and their blood drained from the meat.
The Priest poured a small portion of the blood in a container and took it inside the Most Holy to present it in front of the Lord who sat on the mercy seat.
The Lord instructed the Priests to use certain parts of the meat to burn on the altar to offer unto Him. The priests and their family were also required to partake of the offerings also. They were enjoying good clean roasted meat in the presence of the Lord.
If others are partakers of this right over you, are we not even more? Nevertheless, we have not used this right, but endure all things lest we hinder the gospel of Christ. Do you not know that those who minister the holy things eat of the things of the temple, and those who serve at the altar partake of the offerings of the altar? Even so the Lord has commanded that those who preach the gospel should live of the gospel (1 Corinthians 9: 12-14).
