Reading the main points in the outlines.

Pray-reading the verses:

…This is the law of the sin offering: In the place where the burnt offering is slaughtered the sin offering shall be slaughtered before Jehovah; it is most holy.- Lev. 6:25

For that which the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God, sending His own Son in the likeness of the flesh of sin and concerning sin, condemned sin in the flesh. -Rom. 8:3

Word of Appetizer

What’s the meaning that Christ is our Sin offering?

The sin offering signifies that Christ was made sin for us in order that through His death on the cross sin might be condemned.

Through incarnation the Word, who is God, became flesh, in the likeness of the flesh of sin, the likeness of a fallen man; Hence, through Christ’s death in the flesh all negative things were dealt with; this is the efficacy of the sin offering; As the One who did not know sin, Christ was made sin on our behalf so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

Spiritual Burden

After our regeneration we still need to take Christ as our sin offering and as our trespass offering every day; through our genuine, intimate, living, and loving fellowship with God, who is light, we will realize that we are sinful, and we will take Christ as our sin offering.

 

Concluding Word of the Prophesying Meeting

The Revelation of the Truth

Sin refers to the indwelling sin in our nature, sins refers to the sinful deeds, the fruit of the indwelling sin.

The sinning without intent signifies the sin in our fallen nature, the indwelling sin that came through Adam into mankind from Satan, which causes us to sin unintentionally.

The sin offering signifies that Christ was made sin for us in order that through His death on the cross sin might be condemned.

The blood of the sin offering had four kinds of effects; As a result of Christ being our sin offering and condemning sin in the flesh, it is possible for us to walk not according to the flesh but according to the spirit.

The Experience of Life

Through our genuine, intimate, living, and loving fellowship with God, who is light, we will realize that we are sinful, and we will take Christ as our sin offering, the more we love the Lord and enjoy Him, the more we will know how evil we are

When we enjoy Christ as our burnt offering, the One who is absolutely for God, we realize how sinful we are, and we can enjoy Christ as our sin offering.

Practice and Application

After our regeneration we still need to take Christ as our sin offering and as our trespass offering every day; As a result of Christ being our sin offering and condemning sin in the flesh, it is possible for us to walk not according to the flesh but according to the spirit.
