Human Sacrifice for sin is forbidden

Think about this – have you been taught Yahshua[1] (Jesus) was a sacrifice to God for sin?  If so, it was a lie.

In the Hebrew Bible, items were often used and presented to the priest for payment of law violations, religious, civil, or criminal. Did the item that was placed on the pile of rocks make the payment, or did the individual presenting the item (and loosing the item to the priests) make the payment? Who suffered the loss, the food item on the rocks, or the owner that presented the food item for payment? For example, most of the animal or food presented for payment was eaten by the family of the priest, (since they did not have a land allotment in Israel, whose job in ancient Israel was as butcher as well as many other functions, as a doctor, a lawyer, a consultant for life, or farming, and to determine penalties. Sooner or later the animal may have been killed for food. Animals and other food like grain were the primary elements for wealth, since life depended upon it.

Sometimes the item was used a holocaust (wholly burned) a symbolic gift, the smoke going up, often done by the residual of the pagan minds to please the gods, or for thanksgiving to the gods, or to seek privileges from ones god, and sometimes it was simply roasted and served as food for a banquet as an ancient barbeque.

In the case of Yahshua, (aka Jesus) he was never a “sacrifice” under the laws of Israel, or a “penalty payment” for an act presented by Himself to YHWH . . . . . it didn’t happen. Yahshua lost his life because he insulted the ruling religious authorities, and for instigating insurrection among the local Yahudim people. He was executed like many other ancient prophets before him because he was faithful to his mission by representing YHWH to the people, and teaching them the presence of the ”Kingdom of YHWH/of heaven”  that it was now available to First Century Israel, without the priesthood. He was executed for teaching the truth from the Hebrew Bible

The whole concept of modern Constantine Christianity however, is basically “a back to” a Paganism program. Unlike Christianity, the Hebrew System of payment has nothing to do with “human Sacrifice.” The priests (the civil authorities of Israel) were simply the ones that issued the penalties for violations, civil or religious. For ancient Israel, food items were used for value, as restitution, and to obtain redemption. No more, no less. The Hebrew system of payment (by the use of food items for value) is completely lost in modern Christianity.

Human sacrifice is an abomination to the Sovereign of the Hebrew Bible.

Psa 51:17  The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit. A broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.

Psa 106:38  They shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan. The land was polluted with blood.

Would Yahweh violate his own commandments?? NO!
