What is an acceptable Offering? What makes an offering acceptable | Leviticus 22:20  – But whatsoever hath a blemish, that shall ye not offer: for it shall not be acceptable for you

 

Beloved, we give all the glory and honor to our loving Father in heaven for giving us , all things freely through the acceptable sacrificial  offering.of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Romans 8:32  He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

When the prophecy of the vicarious sacrifice of our Lord was foretold, a lamb without blemish was used and the offering was acceptable..

Exodus 12:5  Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:

When our Lord was eventually sacrificed on the cross to redeem humanity, His offering was acceptable because He had no blemish in Him.

1Pe 1:18 — 1Pe 1:19  Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:

Our Lord had no blemish so His  offering for both redemption of the whole world and sanctification for the church was  offering  with  sweet smelling savour to God.

Deuteronomy 15:21  And if there be any blemish therein, as if it be lame, or blind, or have any ill blemish, thou shalt not sacrifice it unto the Lord thy God.

He rejects with disdain every offerings with blemishes.

Malachi 1:8  And if ye offer the blind for sacrifice, is it not evil? and if ye offer the lame and sick, is it not evil?  offer it now unto thy governor; will he be pleased with thee, or accept thy person? saith the Lord of hosts.

Mal 1:13 — Mal 1:14  Ye said also, Behold, what a weariness is it! and ye have snuffed at it, saith the Lord of hosts; and ye brought that which was torn, and the lame, and the sick; thus ye brought an offering: should I accept this of your hand? saith the Lord. But cursed be the deceiver, which hath in his flock a male, and voweth, and sacrificeth unto the Lord a corrupt thing: for I am a great King, saith the Lord of hosts,and my name is dreadful among the heathen.

Beloved, believers of all ages and you in particular has so much lessons to learn from these  offerings without blemishes of our Lord and other sacrifices.

Most importantly, always remember  you belong to God by creation and redemption.
He created you. 

Revelation 4:11  Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.

He redeemed you.

Acts 20:28  Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

1Co 6:19 — 1Co 6:20  What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

Because of these two reasons, God demands you offer Him acceptable offering without blemish. See it.

Leviticus 22:20  But whatsoever hath a blemish, that shall ye not offer: for it shall not be acceptable for you.

Glory to God for divers offerings you are given to Him.
You are giving Him your time, talents substance and tithes. Continue to do so  and He Himself will continue to bless you.
However, there is an offering that must precede every other offerings you give, before they can be acceptable.
It is the offering of yourself. It is the offering of His altar in your life, which is your heart.
These were the way Bible days believers gave Him offerings and were acceptable to Him . See them.
What is an acceptable Offering? What makes an offering acceptable? | Leviticus 22:20  – But whatsoever hath a blemish, that shall ye not offer:

Proverbs 23:26  My son, give me thine heart,and let thine eyes observe my ways.

These Bible days believers first gave themselves to God, before their substance or their talents.
See it.

2Co 8:1 — 2Co 8:5  Moreover, brethren, we do you to wit of the grace of God bestowed on the churches of Macedonia; How that in a great trial of affliction the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded unto the riches of their liberality. For to their power, I bear record, yea, and beyond their power they were willing of themselves; Praying us with much intreaty that we would receive the gift, and take upon us the fellowship of the ministering to the saints. And this they did, not as we hoped, but first gave their own selves to the Lord, and unto us by the will of God.

However, if the offering of yourself will be acceptable to God, it must be without blemish. See it again.

Leviticus 22:20  But whatsoever hath a blemish, that shall ye not offer: for it shall not be acceptable for you.

The question then is this. Is your life now with blemish or without blemish?
What are the things that constitute blemishes in your life?
Please sincerely examine yourself with these scriptures.addtessed to people inside the church.

2Pe 2:10 — 2Pe 2:22  But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities. Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord. But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption; And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you; Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children: Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice forbad the madness of the prophet.  These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.  For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

What are the consequences of having blemishes in your life?

1. Blemishes in the life of anyone will hinder the person from partaking in the dawning rapture.

Eph 5:25 — Eph 5:27  Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That £he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

1 Thessalonians 5:23  And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

2. A person with blemishes shall not have access to heaven.

Revelation 21:27  And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

3. A person with blemishes shall not be part of the marriage supper of the Lamb .

Rev 19:6 — Rev 19:9  And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

Beloved, it is because of these consequences that the blessed Holy Spirit gave the believers these admonitions.  See them.

Rom 12:1 — Rom 12:2  I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

1Co 3:16 — 1Co 3:17  Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

Philippians 2:15  That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

What is an acceptable Offering? What makes an offering acceptable? | Leviticus 22:20  – But whatsoever hath a blemish, that shall ye not offer:

 

How can you remove blemishes, if they are in your life?

2 Corinthians 7:1  Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

2Ti 2:19 — 2Ti 2:21  Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.  But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour. If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.

Beloved, if you discover any blemishes, the fountain of the Crimson blood is still flowing. Come and be washed now. This is because tomorrow might be too late.

1Jo 3:1 — 1Jo 3:3  Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.
