If you offer a grain offering of your firstfruits to the LORD, you shall offer for the grain offering of your firstfruits green heads of grain roasted on the fire, grain beaten from full heads.
Leviticus 2:14

The Old Testament speaks of the Lord Jesus in various ways, both directly and indirectly, sometimes through statements, sometimes by means of symbols, for which God uses persons or objects that present His Son to us in His beauty.

The meal offering presents the Lord Jesus symbolically, living as a Man on earth and glorifying God perfectly in all things. The meal offering generally consisted of fine flour, oil and frankincense, or it was prepared from fine flour and oil using the heat of the fire in various ways. The heat of the fire sets forth something of the sorrows that He suffered during His life on God’s behalf and for righteousness.

Today’s verse speaks of a different type of meal offering. It consisted not of fine flour but of the firstfruits of the land. The corn of Canaan depicts the glorified Lord in heaven in type. It was the new kind of food of the people after entering the land under Joshua’s leadership (cf. Joshua 5:11.12).

Today we can obtain spiritual strength and refreshment from the contemplation of the glorified Son of man in heaven. He has remained true Man, but the time of His testing as “fine flour” is over. The grain is not now ground to flour; nor is it alone as an ear of corn. “Roasted on the fire”, the corn reminds us of the work accomplished for ever on earth.

Can our hearts sometimes be so filled with the glorified One in heaven that we feel compelled to bring a meal offering of this character before our God?

Today’s reading: 1 Chronicles 3:1-24 · Psalm 79:1-7
