Taking Christ as Our Trespass Offering

for God’s Purpose

Reading the verses in each day.
Reading the main points in the outlines.

Pray-reading the verses:

If we say that we do not have sin, we are deceiving ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.-1 John 1:8-9

…He shall bring his trespass offering to Jehovah for his sin which he has committed, a female from the flock, a sheep or a goat, as a sin offering; and the priest shall make expiation for him on account of his sin.- Lev. 5:6

Word of Appetizer

Do you know where does a trespass come from? What is its source?

Leviticus 5:7 says, “And if he cannot afford a lamb, then he shall bring as his trespass offering to Jehovah for that in which he has sinned two turtledoves or two young pigeons, one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering.” Here we see that two turtledoves or two young pigeons, one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering, form the trespass offering. This signifies that a trespass is out of the inward sin and out of not living for God. The inward sin needs the sin offering. Not living for God needs the burnt offering. The two are a complete type of Christ as the trespass offering resolving our sins.

Spiritual Burden

In taking Christ as our trespass offering, we need to make a thorough confession of all our shortcomings, weaknesses, wrongdoings, and sinfulness in order to have a conscience without offense toward God and men.

When we experience the marriage of our transgression and repentance with God’s forgiveness, we become very useful in the building up of the church.

Concluding Word of the Prophesying Meeting

The Revelation of the Truth  

The trespass offering signifies Christ as our offering resolving the problem of sins in our conduct.

The trespass offering eventually becomes the sin offering, signifying that Christ’s redemption for our sin resolves the problem of sin in its two aspects: sin in our inward nature and sins in our outward conduct

Two turtledoves or two young pigeons, one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering, form a trespass offering, signifying that the source of every trespass is the sin that is in our flesh,

and the reason for every trespass is our not living absolutely for God

In Leviticus 5:11 fine flour, signifying the humanity of Jesus, is used for a sin offering, signifying that we commit sins because we are short of the humanity of Jesus.

The Experience of Life

Taking Christ as our trespass offering with the confession of our sins is the way to keep ourselves in the fellowship of life for our growth in life unto the maturity in life; Taking Christ as our trespass offering to receive the forgiveness of sins issues in our fearing God and loving God.

Practice and Application

In taking Christ as our trespass offering, we need to make a thorough confession of all our shortcomings, weaknesses, wrongdoings, and sinfulness in order to have a conscience without offense toward God and men.

If we are to live a holy life separated from death, we need to exercise care concerning our contact with people .To touch the uncleanness of spiritual death is the most serious thing in the eyes of God; We need to be Nazarites who are separated from death and filled with life,“anti-death”.
