Despite the situation taking place in the world and the coronavirus, we are in a time of Consecration before the Lord.
From the earliest times since God developed His relationship with His people, there have always been those who were consecrated to do God’s will through the Covenants. Usually, people were consecrated for a specific purpose.
Consider Chapter 24 of the Book of Exodus. Moses consecrates the entire people of Israel based on the Covenant. Moses read the Covenant to the people who then made their profession of obedience. Certain rites were established to fulfill God’s intentions for His people and their sacrifices. We see the erection of an altar and twelve memorial stones that would foreshadow the Catholic Altar (Hebrews 13:10). This was to commemorate the twelve tribes of Israel.
Moses consecrated twelve youths whose purpose were to perform the burnt-offering. This would be for the sacred holocaust.
From this holocaust, Moses sprinkled blood upon the people which again is a foreshadowing of the blood of Christ.
