I think I got it!
The altar = the earth, the tangible
The wood = the trees of life and the knowledge of good and evil
The fire = The Holy Spirit, the Word of God, His power
The sacrificed animal = the old self
The burning of the carcass = total destruction of the old self, the influence of the flesh
Pouring of the blood around the back of the altar = the old life, the world’s influence
The removal and burning of the “fat” off the innards = destruction of the soul’s influence, the hopes, wishes, dreams, knowledge, human logic, etc.
The salt = the fear of the Lord = faith in Who He is = His Will/obedience = lose the savor (flavor), and it (faith) is worthless
I want to expand upon this, but I need to know whether I am on the right path or not.
Lord, I wonder, did the sprinkling of blood on the mercy seat quiet the cries of innocent animal blood shed for Your people’s sake? Or, perhaps the continuous fire did?
There were twelve different sacrifice, twelve being the number of God’s Government.
They kept the fire on the altar burning day and night = this is a continuous process
