A visitor/friend visited you with bread and you told the friend to keep his/her present_ It means you rejected the present. Also a friend visited you, you served her food, he/she said she is not hungry_that means she rejected the food.
Rejection means not accepting any present given to you whether for a good reason or not.
This is what happened on the issue of Abraham sacrificing his son Issac to God_God told him not to offer his son anymore as burnt offering. God rejected the human sacrifice father Abraham would have offered.

Have you wondered why God rejected a sacrifice he commanded for initially? keep on reading till you get the right understanding.
The Reasons God Rejected Abraham’s Sacrifice are as follows:
God Is Jealous
The holy book emphasized that God is jealous and will never share his glory with any man.
Let us imagine that Abraham scarified his son Issac to God, and God accepted it(allowed Abraham killed his son), then God would not have said “that he so love the world and gave his only begotten son” because a man has done it before him.
If father Abraham has sacrificed his son, God will not take glory in giving his only son as a ransom to the world. God knowing everything(omniknowest) knew that Jesus will come and die for the world. “the seed of the woman will bruise your heel”
Assuming Issac was sacrificed. God will not take glory and honor of giving His son as ransom. And God being a jealous God will never allow such happen.

Are you getting insight? it remain yet another intriguing reason as below ➡
God Does Not Accept Human Sacrifice
There was a time in Africa when human sacrifice and killing of twins were rampant. Do you know why? ➡
It is because the wicked gods they served are not the creator/maker of man. They are demons; demons like destroying what God created “the thief cometh to kill, steal and destroy”
According to God’s plan and set-time, Grace located Africa, that ended human sacrifice.
Ask yourself, would a father kill his own sun? God created man and will never accept man(whom he created in his own image) as burnt offering. That is why Jesus came to give life and in abundance.
This is also the reason God could never allow a human to killed and burnt as sacrifice. God preserves and gives life.
