I. The Meat / Meal / Food Offering

     This offering is the giving of money and material things. There was no blood sacrificewith this freewill
(Lev.2:1-2) under the Old Covenant becauseIt has nothing to do with atonement for sin, our

      or our consecration 
[1] unto the Lord. (Lev.2:1-2; 9:4,17; 14:10, 20, 31. Lev.25:6, Num.6:13-21, 1Kings8:4,
      Neh.10:33, Joel.2:14, Mal.3:10)
 It was the "fruit of the ground," it was a voluntary(Num.29:39) "Meat"  
      (i.e. food) offering made of fine flour .  Even though it was not a blood sacrifice, it had to be offered on the    
      Brazen Altar
(Lev.2:2) and totally consumed with fire for a sweetsmelling savor, (Lev.2:2)  It should also be
      noted that, there was no leaven allowed in this  offering.

     A. The New Testament fulfillment 

            The Meat / Meal Offering points to (Gal.3:24) our own efforts, labor, good works of our hands. (i.e. the
            planting and cultivating the ground to produce  the wheat (flour / grain) Note: Cain's Offering.
Whereas the animals that were sacrificed for the Sin, Trespass, Burnt and Peace offerings were none
            of Israel's doings. (Isa.62:8) 

      1. Paul, the apostle and wise masterbuilder (architect -1Cor.3:10

                 He reads the blueprint of the Old Testament type and builds into the Church a clear distinction
                 between Salvation (The
Sin Offering) and  good works. (The Meal / Meat Food  Offering (Eph.2:6-10,  
                  Matt.5:16, 1Tim.6:18, 2Tim.3:17, 1Peter.2:12)
 "For we are...created (Saved / Sin Offering - 2Cor.5:17)
                 unto good works /
Meat / Meal (food) Offering (The works of our hands

         2. Don't be deceived
                 Your "good  works" does not justify you before God. Only the sinless blood of Christ (
The Sin  
                 Offering) justifies you before God.
Col.1:14) You can cannot add anything to it. (Deut.12:32, Prov.30:5)
                 Note: This is why there is no atoning blood sacrifice in the Meal (Meat, Food) Offering,
                 because our righteousness (good works) is as "filthy rags."
(Isa.64:6) "(that is in my flesh,) dwelleth
                 no good thing:" (Rom.7:18)

          3. Our good works needs to be free of "leaven" (Lev.2:11)
                 Leaven is a  type of the weakness of our sinful human flesh.
(Matt.16:6-12, Luke.12:1, 1Cor.5:6-8,    
The "leaven" of the Pharisees was a doctrine of hypocrisy. (Matt.16:12, Luke.12:1) They
                 loved to do do their "alms" (compassionate) to be seen of men. (leaven) Here is a simple test. If 
                 you have giving something, and did not receive the recognition to you thought you deserved, or
                 you want to control where that giving goes, you have just offered your Meal / Meat / Food 
                 Offering with leaven in it.

             a. Leaven points to "malice and wickedness"   
​                      Paul writes,
"Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, either with the leaven of malice
​                      and wickedness;
(1Cor.5:8, Eph.4:31, Col.3:8, 1Peter.2:1) but with the unleavened bread of sincerity
                      and truth."

                     (1) Note: In the "ensample" (blueprint PHASE 2 and PHASE 8)

​                            No leaven was to be found in their houses.
(Exod.12:15-20, 1Cor.5:7-8; 14:20, Eph.4:31,
                              Col.3:8, Titus.3:3)
This foreshadows our spiritual house. (1Cor.6:19-20, 1Peter.2:5) "Purge out
therefore the old leaven." There is no place for No malice or wickedness.

                            (a) The example of Simon
​                                  Simon wanted to buy the power of the Holy Ghost. "But Peter 
said unto him, Thy money

                                  perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with
 Thou hast neither part nor lot (Exod.12:15, 1Cor.5:7-8) in this matter: (utterance)[1]
                                  for thy heart is not right in the sight of God. "Repent
therefore of this thy wickedness,1
                                  (Leaven depravity iniquity,
and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be
                                  forgiven thee." (
Acts.8:20-22) How many today give money and material things to ministry
                                  and the House of God with an expectation of favors,
for position and authority in the local
                                  Church, or to be included in the "inner circle" of ministry fellowships.
It is not done openly,
                                  but an unspoken expectation left "hanging in the air."

                                  Note: There are warnings in God's Word to those that would accept money and material
"inappropriately." (2Kings.5:1-27, 2Peter.2:1-2, 13-16 / Num.22-24)
    (b)  Ananias and Sapphira

                                  They paid the ultimate price for the leaven in their (spiritual) Meal Offering. They
                                  pretended to give all the "price" of their possession, while conspiring to keep "back part
                                  of the money"
(Acts.4:34-37; 5:1-11) Note: Eccl.5:1-7

           (2)  Malice and wickedness defined

                            Laying "aside all malice, (evil, malice, naughtiness, wickedness)
[2] and all guile, and hypocrisies,
                            and envies, and all evil speakings.
(1Peter.2:1-3) There is no good thing in our flesh. (Rom.7:18)  
                            Our righteousness is as filthy rags.
(Isa.64:6) The question may be asked, "how can I have
                            malice and wickedness after I have been saved?" Look at the example of Saul.
(1Sam.15:1-33) It
                            appeared that he was honoring the Lord with his sacrifice, but Samuel said his actions (his
                            human wisdom and reasoning / leaven) was "rebellion...iniquity and idolatry."
"Purge out the old leaven." (1Cor.5:7-8, Eph.4:22-28, James.3:9-18)


                 b. Leaven is a type of "doctrine."

                      Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the
(Matt 16:6) How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not to you concerning
                      bread, that ye should
beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees? Then under
                      stood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of
bread, but of the doctrine of the
                      Pharisees and of the Sadducees.
(Matt 16:11-13) If we don't have a "sound doctrine" (2Tim.4:3)    
money, good works and the giving of material things, our Meal Offering could be
                      leavened and "profit us nothing."

                 c. The doctrine of "hypocrisy."

                     "In the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people, 
                     insomuch that they trode one upon another, he
began to say unto his disciples first of all, Beware
                     ye (you) of the leaven of the
Pharisees, which is hypocrisy." (Luke 12:1)

                     (1) Hypocrisy also translated[1] "Condemnation"
                           Above "all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by
                           any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation."     
   (James 5:12) Make sure there is not the leaven of "hypocrisy" in your "Meal Offering," (i.e.
                           You playing God and condemning those that are not giving as
you think they should.

                     (2) Hypocrisy also translated"Dissimulation"
                           Certain "came from James, he did eat with the Gentiles: but when
they were come, he with-
                           drew and separated himself, fearing them
which were of the circumcision. And the other Jews
                           dissembled likewise with
him; insomuch that Barnabas also was carried away with their
[1](Gal.2:12-13) When offering your "meal Offering," are you giving with respect
                           of persons, or wonder what other people think of your giving
of money and material things? If
                           you are, then the leaven of "dissimulation" has just infected your offering.

d. The doctrine of "unbelief in the supernatural"
                      Then (the disciples) understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread,
                     but of
the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees," (Matt.16:12-13) which "say there is no

          (Mark 12:18-19, Acts.23:5-9) When Offering your "Meal Offering" guard against the "leaven" of unbelief that God
          can supernaturally supply your need."

     e.  Leaven is a type of being "entangled with the yoke of bondage" 
           This "Meal Offering" (the giving of money and material things) is a voluntary / freewill Offering. Paul writes,
           "this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also
           bountifully. Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity:
           (leaven) for God loveth a cheerful (propitious or merry ("hilarious"6), i.e. prompt or willing:free) (unleavened)
           giver." (2Cor.9:6-7)

3.  Our good works (Meal Offering) needs to remain on the Altar
       Remember: The Altar foreshadows Jesus. Our "Meal Offering" needs to remain on the Altar to be burned
       (total consumed by fire / out of your control) with fire. Our "alms" (good deeds) needs to be exposed to the fire
       of God's Word, (Jer.23:29, Isa.4:4, Matt.3:11-12) to "see what sort (kind) it is." (1Cor.3:13)  It is Gold, Silver and
       Precious stones (Noah) or Wood, Hay and Stubble? (Lot) Even though our Justification / salvation does not depend
       upon the "Meal Offering," it still needs to be tried by the fire of God's Word. It must be brought to the Altar (Jesus
        Col.1:18, John.10:1-10; 14:6) and subjected to be totally consumed by the fire


4. Let Jesus be preeminent 
      Our good works (Meal Offering) needs to be "an odor of a sweet smell. a sacrifice acceptable, well pleasing
      to God." (Phil.4:15-18) That "odor of a sweet smell" is the preeminence of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Eph.5:1-2,
       Col.1:18; 3:17)  The "meal offering" of Ananias and Sapphira did not have that "sweet smelling savour" of Christ   
       (Eph.5:1-2) and was rejected. (Acts.5:1-11)
5. Watch out for the counterfeit Meal Offering!
      This should not a strange thing to say that there is a counterfeit "Meal Offering" in the
      Church today. Jesus said this would happen. (Matt.13:24-30, 36-43) Paul (Gal.1:12)
       said it would happen. (Acts.20:29 / Matt.7:13-20) It was event in the Corinthian
      Church. There were false apostles coming into the Corinthian Church preaching
      "another Jesus." (another Altar) (2Cor.11:1-15) The Churches of Galatia were being
      "removed from...Christ (the true Altar to a false Altar) "unto another gospel..." and
      were perverting the gospel of Christ." (Gal.1:6-9)

      Any offering that ignores the true Altar, (The Lord Jesus Christ)
     the sweetsmelling savor of the sacrifice of Christ and His sinless
     shed atoning blood, is another Jesus.

      Giving money and material things to causes (Note: 1Cor.13:1-3) does not atone for
      sin. Only the Sin Offering atones for Sin. There are many today that are giving
      unto causes thinking that this will atone for Sin. They are mistaken!  Note: We have
      been saved by grace (The compulsory Sin Offering Eph.2:8-10) unto "good works." (The voluntary Meal Offering)
      As Christian we should give (freely, voluntarily) unto those that needy, (1John.3:17) but realize this is DOES NOT
      justifying you before God.

Next is the Peace Offering

Many are trying to buy their way in by giving money and material things,and good works.
