As For The Service Of The Altar
We read in Joel:
(Joel 1:13) Gird yourselves and lament, you priests; Wail, you who minister before the altar; Come, lie all night in sackcloth, You who minister to my God; For the grain offering and the drink offering Are withheld from the house of your God.
Also the New Testament (Luke 1:8) So it was, that while he was serving as priest before God in the order of his division,
(Luke 1:23) And so it was, as soon as the days of his service were completed, that he departed to his own house.
(Heb 8:3) For every high priest is appointed to offer both gifts and sacrifices. Therefore it is necessary that this One also have something to offer.
(Heb 9:26) He then would have had to suffer often since the foundation of the world; but now, once at the end of the ages, He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself.
