I’m sure we are all familiar with this term” GOAT” which means greatest of all times. This accolade is given to the person who has excelled in more than one genre of the arts and have received a Grammy, a Oscar, Academy Award, and a Tony; thus they are called Goats. These actors and actress are in a select group, it may have taken a lifetime of work to achieve this status.
In Lev.16:7-27 we find a story about 2 goats, 1 is called the Lords goat and the other is called the scape goat. It was time for atonement, cleansing of the sins of the people from the temple; on the head of the scape goat was placed all the sins of the people for that year and it was sent into the wilderness , never to be seen again. This was the duty of the Priest annually.
This ritual was performed until the final scape goat was manifested, after 42 generations the way was made, He came as a babe, grew into a man, walked peacefully with all men in a world of chaos. He feed the hungry, healed the sick, gave sight to the blind, hearing to the deaf, turned water into wine, walked on water and raised the dead to life; everything He did showed the LOVE of the Father Creator.
He had no fame by mans standard nor did He receive any awards or accolades. He was misunderstood, mistreated, and hated by many; even some that he had blessed were swept away with the crowds of hate mongers. They couldn’t bear the light of truth that was reflected upon them in His presence They chose to rid themselves of Him rather then repent and turn from their sins. They enjoyed the fame, control and riches their positions afforded them.
The stage was set, His appointment with destiny awaited Him; soon the sins of the world would be placed upon His shoulders. He would give the greatest sacrifice the world would ever know, His blood would pay our sin penalty; which is death. He would become the final scape goat as He hang on a tree atop a hillside outside the city. He was, He is, and He will always be ” the greatest of all times”. We are entering a season of thankfulness, while there maybe many things to be thankful for; remember the sacrifice made for us those many years ago.
Allow the LOVE of sacrifice flow through you to reach out to someone who is in need of love.
