And the Lord called unto Moses, and spake unto him out of the tabernacle of the congregation, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any man of you bring an offering unto the Lord, ye shall bring your offering of the cattle, even of the herd, and of the flock. If his offering be a burnt sacrifice of the herd, let him offer a male without blemish: HE SHALL OFFER IT OF HIS OWN VOLUNTARY WILL at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the Lord. And he shall put his hand upon the head of the burnt offering; AND IT SHALL BE ACCEPTED FOR him to make ATONEMENT for him. Leviticus 1:1-4. BE YE therefore PERFECT, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect. Matthew 5:48. But as he which hath called you is holy, so BE YE HOLY in all manner of conversation, (life); Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. 1 Peter 1:15-16. Again, this goes from the Old Testament "legalism" of impossible, to the New Testament MORE impossible of "Be Perfect, Be Holy, and I'll accept YOU as the Perfect Sacrifice". This is how, today, man TRIES OF HIS OWN ABILITY to earn his way into heaven. Again, this is still impossible as man makes up his own Denominational Rules and Regulations, Bible versions, and "Dreams" to still try to get into heaven. Man makes it complicated, BUT CHRIST MAKES IT SIMPLE. He says, "I am The Way, I will change your Heart, and you can do ALL THINGS through Me". Just Trust Christ, Follow Him and His Leading, He'll help you with EVERYTHING, if you'll but Trust and Obey. He is PERFECT, and through Him, you can be made Perfect and Holy, A Pleasing Sacrifice, A Sweet Smelling Savor to the Father, through The Son. Christ did ALL the work, rest in Him, give up your way and go His. Read His Word, study Him, and He'll make you like Him. As the Father sees you through Christ, He sees Perfection and Holiness. "Well done good and faithful servant, enter into the Joy of Thy Lord", and, Be Blessed.
