Leviticus 27:28-29, says “no devoted thing or a man devoted to the Lord, or anything that he has, whether man or beast, or of his inherited field, shall be sold or redeemed; every devoted thing is most HOLY to the Lord. No one devoted, for destruction from mankind, shall be ransomed but put to death. In Exodus, 23:11-16, “When the Lord brings you into the land of the Canaanites, as HE SWORE to you and your fathers to GIVE to you, you shall SET APART to the Lord all that first opens the womb. All firstborns of your animals that are males shall be the Lord‘s. Every firstborn of a donkey you shall redeem with a lamb or if you do not redeem it you shall break its neck. So every firstborn of man among your sons you shall redeem. When in future come your son ask you, what does this mean, you shall say to him, ‘By STRONG HAND THE LORD brought us out of Egypt, from the house of slavery. For when Pharaoh stubbornly refused to let us go, the Lord killed all firstborns in the land of Egypt, both the firstborn of man and firstborn of animals. So dedicate to the Lord God all males that first open the womb, but all the firstborn of my sons I REDEEM.’
Paganistically influencing practices that are stated in Psalm 106:37-43 says, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters to demons poured out their innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to idols and of Canaan so the land was polluted with blood. It thus became unclean by their acts, and played the whore in their deeds. Anger of LORD GOD was kindled against HIS people, and HE abhorred HIS Heritage; HE GAVE them into hands of nations, so those who hate them rule them. GOD in HIS MERCY in John 3:16 Said, For God so loved the world, that HE GAVE HIS ONLY Son, Jesus that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. John 1:29, the next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! Jesus warns in Luke 11:47-51, Woe to you! For you build tombs of the prophets whom your fathers killed. So you are witnesses and you consent to the deeds of your fathers, for they killed them and you build their tombs. Yet the Wisdom of God Said, ‘I WILL SEND them prophets and apostles, some of whom they will kill and persecute,’ so that the blood of all the prophets, shed from the foundation of the world, may be charged against this generation from the blood of Abel to blood of Zechariah, who perished between the altar in Sanctuary. Yes I tell you required of this generation.
Hosea 6:6 says God DESIRES STEADFAST LOVE not sacrifice KNOWLEDGE OF GOD not burnt offerings. 1 Corinthians 2:1-16, Paul said when I came to you, brothers I did not come proclaiming TESTIMONY of God with lofty speech or wisdom decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. I was with you in weakness, in fear so trembling speech and my message were not in plausible words of wisdom, in demonstration of SPIRIT, OF POWER, that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the POWER OF GOD. Micah 6:7 says, Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, with ten thousands of rivers of oil? Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?” Psalm 40:6 says, in sacrifices, offerings does not delight God but gives Open Ear, burnt offering and sin offering GOD does not require. 1 Kings 13:1-2 says, behold, a man of God came out of Judah by word of the Lord to Bethel. Jeroboam standing by altar to make offerings and so man cried against the altar by the word of the Lord, Thus Says the LORD ‘Behold, a son shall be born to house of David Josiah by name he shall sacrifice on altar priests of high places who make offerings and human bones shall be burnt. Those who think they become more civilized by blood rite drink blood during the ritual, while the barbaric practice of killing victim alive took place in the group, by the cult. And continue to practice blood rite in modern times drinking blood as black magic rite.
There is a parasitic belief by people who partake of blood sacrifice that they gain power and survive by drinking of blood by rite of black magic and enables them to predict the future as blood of victim courses through their veins. From time to time entice children, preferably male from 6-8 years old perfectly formed, intelligent without a blemish. And young virgin before the age of puberty, because blood becomes impure after beginning of puberty. Child enticed into some secret gathering place, kidnapped child is tied, stripped, body pierced with sharp ritual knives used. So collect and drink blood drained into cups, bowls, pots, while a child slowly expires in an atmosphere of unrelieved horror. So celebrate their symbolic victory to become stronger as they continue to drink blood of the dying child. Only by performing this rite they think they continue to survive, prosper in life but others sacrifice animals.
Each year gather to perform annual rites of covenant to appease the gods to seek their help, favour in business and life. In 2 Kings 3:26-27 when the king of Moab saw the battle was too fierce for him, he took with him 700 men who drew sword to break through to the king of Edom but they could not. So he took his oldest son to reign in his place, and offered him as a burnt offering on the wall. There came great wrath against Israel, and so they departed from him and returned to their own land. In 2 Kings 16:2-3, Ahaz was 20 years old when he became king, and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem; and he did not do what was right in the sight of the LORD his God, as his father David had done. But he walked in the way of the kings of Israel, and even made his son pass through the fire, according to the abominations of the nations whom the LORD had driven out from before the sons of Israel. In 2 Kings 17:16-17, they forsook all the commandments of the LORD their God so made for themselves molten images, two calves, and made an Asherah and worshiped all the host of heaven and served Baal. They made their sons and daughters pass through fire, so practiced divination, enchantments, and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of the LORD, provoking HIM. In 2 Kings 21:6, he made his son pass through fire, practiced witchcraft, divination, dealt with mediums, spiritists. Did evil in the Sight of LORD provoking HIM to anger. Jesus SACRIFICED HIS LIFE FOR ALL SO ACCEPT, BELIEVE, RECEIVE SALVATION.
WORSHIP Monotheistic God YAHWEH and do not follow polytheism in 2 Kings 23:10, like defiled Topheth in the valley of son of Hinnom. No man must make his son or daughter pass through fire for Molech. 2 Chronicles 28:1-3 and Ezekiel 23:37-39 show they committed adultery and blood is on their hands, committed adultery with their idols and caused their sons, whom they bore to GOD, to pass through the fire to them as food. “Again, they have done this to ME: they have defiled MY Sanctuaries on same day and profaned My Sabbaths.“For when they had slaughtered their children for their idols, they entered My Sanctuary on the same day to profane it; and lo, thus they did within MY HOUSE. So as seen in the case of Abraham God is Saying HE DOES NOT want their human sacrifices. As it is POSSIBLE FOR GOD TO PROVIDE a lamb in place of sacrifice of Isaac, Abraham was speaking prophetically of PERFECT SACRIFICE of Yeshua Jesus the MESSIAH and LAMB of God. SACRIFICE OF LAMB OF GOD Jesus, GOD PROVIDES HIGHEST ULTIMATE DIVINE FORGIVENESS FOR PEACE WITH GOD HAS ACCOMPLISHED ATONEMENT through His PRECIOUS BLOOD for sins. So, SAVED BY GRACE OF GOD through FAITH not man-made efforts on man’s terms! All who rebel against God invite GOD’S Wrath to fall on them in judgement consequence of disobedience. The decision is yours to give account of your personal life to God. It is not perishable things such as silver or gold that redeems from empty ways of the forefathers but PRECIOUS BLOOD OF MESSIAH The LAMB without blemish or defect that SAVES AND REDEEMS LIFE according to 1 Peter 1:18–19.
In Bible, Elijah PROVED POWER OF THE ONE TRUE challenging people to call on name of their god [אֱלֹהֵיכֶם], as Elijah will call on NAME of LORD YAHVEH. The GOD WHO ANSWERS by fire HE IS God הָאֱלֹהִים/ Elohim in 1 Kings 18:24. Prophet Elijah, demonstrated the POWER OF CALLING ON NAME OF GOD LOUDLY TO THE HEARING OF ALL PRESENT including, 450 prophets in Israel who followed baal made their lord and their master instead of the LIVING LORD GOD ALMIGHTY YAHVEH. Elijah’s challenge to baal spiritualists duel PROVE LORD YAHVEH / יְהוָה is GOD ELOHIM as other idols are nothing but a mere deception. YAHVEH JIREH, GOD PROVIDED FIRE TO CONSUME ELIJAH SACRIFICE TO GOD. GOD, CONSUMING FIRE APPROVED AND ACCEPTED ELIJAH SACRIFICE TO PROVE HE IS THE ONLY ONE TRUE LIVING GOD YAHVEH SHALOM THE LORD IS PEACE. YAHVEH Tz’va’ot THE LORD of HOSTS IS JEHOVAH NISSI THE ALMIGHTY GOD IN Battle. Elijah challenged the prophets of baal to call on the name of baal, while he would call on the Lord God of Israel. So he settled once and for all that whoever answered by sending fire to miraculously CONSUME SACRIFICE IS ONE TRUE GOD ELOHIM. So prophets of baal called the name of their god so loudly accompanied by dancing, cutting their bodies nothing happened so their god could not respond because it is a false god. Elijah knew God Whom he WORSHIPPED, so CONFIDENT YAHWEH would ANSWER when he called so drenched Sacrifice in water fill trench he dug around the altar.
