In the Old Testament, the Hebrew people would offer burnt sacrifices of certain animals to the Lord, and the burning scent of these animals pleased the Lord. Particularly, the burning of the fat.

...why do you suppose that (burning of the fat) was (pleasing to God)?

Further, I have long wondered why God was so willing to see thousands of people die in apparent support of furthering His cause in the earth...I suspect it was because there had yet been no substitute offered...

Hey trim the fat!

That's another question all together. My belief it's a test to still have faith that God is still good no matter what.

But back to the fat, does anyone really have a clue? scratch

so the burning of sins is pleasing to God.

Very good, Susan cheers

I write to anyone who reads this, a person who truely owns his or her property can do anything with it, and there is nothing that anyone else can do with it.

And I mean anything, even with what is impossible to others.

Does anyone remember the story of Elijah? The one about the contest where he went up against the 450 prophets of baal?

It's in 1 Kings 18...

Is there significance to anyone that Elijah had the wood of the burnt offering soaked not once, twice but three times with water and it still burned in God's fire?

...just asking Smile

The number three is divine nature...

Yeay! Pamela, your answer is closer to what I had in mind. Susan, I dunno, but I guess three can symbolize divinity scratch

I believe what happened with Elijah's burnt offering illustrates the following verse:

Matthew 19:26
But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.


Now, it was said in this thread that the fat is like sin and the fat buring is like sin that burns and it is pleasing to God, right?

Well then, who amongst sinners is like the soaking wood and who is like the dry wood?

I would venture to say that:

The soaking wood are those who are overcomers and following in the ways of the LORD...

THe dry wood would be those who are thirsty and needing HIS refreshing water to wash over them so they can be soaked in HIS presence...

...okay...

This is good, because I will believe the Lord will guide this discussion Smile

But allow me to ask this and tell me if your answer changes, and please, anyone please post if the Spirit inspires you to do so.

Which is it that shall easily burn, the wet wood or the dry wood?

The wet wood, because it is already saturated with HIM!

With God he makes wet wood burn hardest and hottest...if it proves "Him" to unbelievers...

1Ki 18:35 And the water ran round about the altar; and he filled the trench also with water. 1Ki 18:36 And it came to pass at [the time of] the offering of the [evening] sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said, LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou [art] God in Israel, and [that] I [am] thy servant, and [that] I have done all these things at thy word. 1Ki 18:37 Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that thou [art] the LORD God, and [that] thou hast turned their heart back again. 1Ki 18:38 Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that [was] in the trench. 1Ki 18:39 And when all the people saw [it], they fell on their faces: and they said, The LORD, he [is] the God; the LORD, he [is] the God.

I like your thinking Pamela, because it is spirited in a way to please the Lord.

With God he makes wet wood burn hardest and hottest...if it proves "Him" to unbelievers...

However, Fervent's reply is the one the strikes an accord in me.

The wet wood burns the hardest and hotest, yes. For, what man cannot do even with dry wood the Lord can do the same with the wettest wood.

And both were pyres to burn away the fat, that pleases the Lord for it is like sin burning away.

The dry wood is readied like tinder, easy to ignite willing to burn.

The wet wood is stubborn, resistant to fire, unyielding

yet both shall burn for the fat...

see the meaning?

The dry wood represents the repentant heart, while the wet wood represents the unrepented heart. Both will burn, tried by fire, to have the fat burn away.

Now, then Matthew 19 is revisted.

Matthew 19:23-26
23 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, That a rich man shall hardly enter into the kingdom of heaven.

24 And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.


25 When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved?

26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.


Who shall be saved? With men it is impossible to do even that with dry wood, but with God all things are possible, even for the wet wood.

So the many that are "rich" in the here and now, will not enter heaven...(as the rich).

Pray and think about it. In Jesus name, Amen.

Love Bob
