Many coming back to Torah from other religions ask us, “Will there be sacrifices and offerings in the Millennial Kingdom?” This short article answers straight from scripture for you and for others who may have the same question.
For those who know Adonai’s word, the Prophetic scriptures reveal and emphatic YES with multiple witnesses showing a process of first Mashiach comes, then rebuilds the Temple in Jerusalem (Zech. 6:12-13), and then sacrifices and offerings are reinstituted according to Torah (Eze. 43:18-46:24, Zech. 14:20-21; and Jer. 33:15-18).
Zechariah 6:12-13 says,
Then say to him, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts, “Behold, a man whose name is Branch, for He will branch out from where He is; and He will build the temple of the Lord. Yes, it is He who will build the temple of the Lord, and He who will bear the honor and sit and rule on His throne. Thus, He will be a priest on His throne, and the counsel of peace will be between the two offices.”’
Ezekiel 43:18 says,
Then he said to me, “Son of man, thus says Adonai Elohim: ‘These are the statutes for the altar on the day when they will construct it, in order to offer burnt offerings on it and to sprinkle blood on it.
The Ezekiel Temple has never been built but will only be fulfilled by Mashiach (Messiah ben David) when he comes. Thus this scripture is not speaking of something past but of the future!
Isa 56:6-8 says,
Also the foreigners who join themselves to Adonai, to minister to Him, and to love the Name of Adonai, and to be His servants—all who keep from profaning Shabbat, and hold fast to My covenant— these I will bring to My holy mountain, and let them rejoice in My House of Prayer. Their burnt offerings and sacrifices will be acceptable on My altar. For My House will be called a House of Prayer for all nations.” Adonai Elohim, who gathers the dispersed of Israel, declares, “I will gather still others to him, to those already gathered.”
Zec 14:20-21 says,
In that day “Holy to Adonai” will be inscribed on the bells of the horses and the pots in the House of Adonai (the Temple) will be like the sacred bowls in front of the altar. In fact every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah will be Holy to Adonai-Tzva’ot, so that everyone who comes to sacrifice will take them, and cook in them. In that day there will no longer be a Canaanite in the House of Adonai-Tzva’ot.
Jeremiah 33:15-18 says,
“In those days and at that time I will cause a righteous Branch to spring up for David, and he shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. 16 In those days Judah will be saved, and Jerusalem will dwell securely. And this is the name by which it will be called: ‘The Lord is our righteousness.’ 17 “For thus says the Lord: David shall never lack a man to sit on the throne of the house of Israel, 18 and the Levitical priests shall never lack a man in my presence to offer burnt offerings, to burn grain offerings, and to make sacrifices forever.”
An additional common misunderstanding from some people coming from a mind-set of Christianity promotes erroneously that if there are going to be “sacrifices and offerings” again that there will be no sin offering as they believe that was “done away” with, but the prophetic scripture reveals that this is not so and that all of the Torah will be lived out in the Messianic age. Notice how the Spirit of Truth reveals the future of sin offerings to the Prophet Ezekiel in Eze 45:25 saying,
“He will do this in the seventh month, on the fifteenth day the month, during the Feast, for seven days, for sin offering as well as burnt offering, grain offering as well as oil.”
