The True Meaning Of Circumcision
The Meaning of Circumcision
When The Most High told Abraham that part of the covenant He was to keep with him would be that all males including slaves would be circumcised, and from that time forward, all males at 8 days old would be circumcised. See Genesis 17
The meaning behind circumcision is that the cutting of the foreskin represents the old life without GOD in their lives, and the blood from cut represents a new life with the Most High. A people who will obey His Laws and Commands, from generations to come.
This is in harmony with what Paul writes in Romans 2:28-29
28 it is not the man who is a Jew on the outside, whose circumcision is a physical thing.
29 Rather, the real Jew is the person who is a Jew on the inside, that is, whose heart has been circumcised, and this is the work of GOD’S Spirit, not of the written Law. Such a person receives praise from GOD, not from human beings.
When a heart is circumcised it means that it has given up the desires of the world and it’s only desire is to fulfill the Will of GOD.
They waited 8 days because the number 8 means prosperity. Anyone who got circumcised on the 8th day prospered in life with the Most High.
