The Ingredients of Sacrifice
The perfection of the personality of Jesus Christ, which was even and well balanced, a perfect personality in complete balance just like Adam’s personality was. Fine flour was expensive and highly prized, just as Jesus nature was to God. The whole grain of wheat has to be crushed to obtain fine flour.
“He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought up peace was upon Him.”
Salt Speaks of Preservative and enhancer
Salt is good, but if it looses its saltiness, how can you make it salty again. Have salt in yourselves and be at peace with each other”
“Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how to answer everyone”
“Everyone will be salted with fire”
Honey Speaks of natural sweetness and is not acceptable for relationship with God.
The bright light of the Holy Spirit
The pleasing fragrance of the person of Christ, and His life to God the Father.
Yeast - Leaven
Wickedness and Evil
1 Corinthians 5:6-8 KJV
“Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven, leavens the whole lump? Purge out therefore the old leaven that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us. Therefore keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.”
The inner beauty and the zeal of The Lord Jesus Christ.
On this day atonement will be made for you, to cleanse you.

“Christ our Passover lamb has been sacrificed.”
“Grace and peace to you from Him who is, and who was, and who is to come ---- and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the first born from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loves us and has freed us from our sins, by His blood.”
“Then He took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them saying, drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.”
Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.”
1 peter 1:2
By believing in Jesus Christ, the sacrificed Messiah, we partake of Christ life, which is eternal in nature.
