I’ve been reading near the beginning of the Bible. Leviticus has a lot of detail on how we can approach God and it is with an offering and with caution. It makes me appreciate the new covenant where Jesus did it all. The Levites were ordained by God and commissioned by those whom they served. Then they get presented as a wave offering. The wave offering was the offering that was offered to God but not burned up. It was waved instead of laid on the alter and then given to the priests as food. This type of offering is their provision. It was sometimes called a peace or fellowship offering. The instructions are so detailed and perfect because the author of this system is perfect. God knew His perfect lamb – Jesus – would change everything. This precursor is all about relationship. As the world continues to wind down, God wanted to save people and He still wants to save people. I don’t really understand the wave part. Was the wave to God for His attention? Those sacrifices have a dual purpose – honor God and provide for the priests. We wave for a different purpose. We see a friend across the room and bend our fingers or sway our wrist in recognition. We are saying, ‘I see you’. We wave down the emergency vehicle when someone is in distress. A wave is a nonverbal greeting or farewell. It is a universal sign. In Lev 23:17-20 there are burnt offerings, first fruits to the Lord, sin offerings, and peace offerings. In Lev 23:17-20 the method of waving the offering is described. The significance tells of Jesus being the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep. The wave-sheaf offering was the forerunner of an additional offering brought later for Pentecost. God’s Holy Days relate to each other. Heb 4:14 refers to Jesus who now serves as our High Priest. Jesus is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. I’m waving thank you Lord. It is clear that I am no theologian but hope you will be curious enough to check out the meaning for yourself.
