Genesis 22:2 “And he said Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.”
One bible character we can’t stop talking about is the great King David and how God called him a man after His own heart. But one thing many fail to understand is the kind of heart David carried that endeared him to God’s heart. Hear this:
2 Samuel 24: 21 “And Araunah said Wherefore is my lord the king come to his servant? And David said To buy the threshingfloor of thee, to build an altar unto the LORD, that the plague may be stayed from the people.”
2 Samuel 24: 22 “And Araunah said unto David, Let my lord the king take and offer up what seemeth good unto him: behold here be oxen for burnt sacrifice, and threshing instruments and other instruments of the oxen for wood.”
2 Samuel 24: 24 “And the king said unto Araunah, NAY; BUT I WILL SURELY BUY IT OF THEE AT A PRICE: NEITHER WILL I OFFER BURNT OFFERINGS UNTO THE LORD MY GOD OF THAT WHICH DOTH COST ME NOTHING. So David bought the threshingfloor and the oxen for fifty shekels of silver.” (Emphasis mine)
2 Samuel 24: 25 “And David built there an altar unto the LORD, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings. So the LORD was intreated for the land, and the plague was stayed from Israel.”
David needed to offer peace sacrifice unto God. He got strict order from Prophet Gad on where to offer the sacrifice.
2 Samuel 24:18 “And Gad came that day to David, and said unto him, Go up rear an altar unto the LORD in the threshingfloor of Araunah the Jebusite.”
God chose the location and David went there. The place was the threshingfloor of Araunah the Jebusite. On seeing David and his men, Araunah asked what they wanted and they told him.
