l.  The Compulsory Trespass Offering

     The compulsory Trespass Offering (Ought against your brother) Under the Old Testament the Sin
     Offering covered their sin before God. The Trespass Offering covered the trespasses or faults of "the Church
     in the wilderness." These were "trespasses" against God and each other.
(Acts.7:38, Lev.6:2-7, Gen.31:36-
      42; 50:17, Lev.14:1-28; 19;20-22; 22:10-16; 26:1-40, Josh.7:1; 22:11-20, 1Sam.6:3) 
This required the shedding of
     blood to atone for these trespasses.
(Lev.7:1-2)  This atonement was to produce a "sweet smelling savor"
and be totally consumed by fire. (Lev.7:5)There were no options given! (TheBurnt, Mealand
PeaceOfferingswere freewill offerings.(Lev.1:3; 19:5, Ezk.46:11-12)but there was no options given fortheSin
andTrespassOfferings) This pattern has not changed!


    A. The New Covenant  fulfillment.
           Jesus said to "forgive us our trespasses."
(Matt.6:12-15; 18:15, Luke.17:3, [Gal.6:1 "fault" is "trespass"]   
           James.5:16, 2Cor.5:19, Eph.2:1, Col.2:13, 1Cor.8:1-13)
The Sin Offering is when we are saved (Born Again),

          and our Trespass Offering is offered to atone for our offenses and faults after Salvation.      

   1. Jesus did not change this pattern (blueprint)           

               He said, "...if  thou bring  thy
(freewill, Burnt, Meal and Peace) gift (present; sacrifice) to the altar, and 
               there rememberest (remember) that thy brother hath (has) ought  against thee. (you) Leave thy
               Burnt, Meal and Peace)
gift (sacrifice, offering) before the altar, and go thy way; first be  reconciled...then
               offer thy gift." 
Burnt, Meal, Peace Offering. (Matt.5:23-24, Mark.11:25-26)     

         2. The word "trespass"          

               Trespass is a (side-slip [lapse or deviation], i.e. unintentional, error or [unwillful] transgression against
               a fellow saint. To miss the mark [and so not share in the prize] i.e. (fig) to err, especially to sin. (Strong's)                Note: Jesus said, "I am not come to destroy (to loosen down (disintegrate), i.e. (by implication) to
               demolish (literally or figuratively); the Law, (of the trespass offering) I have not come to destroy, (the
               trespass offering) but to fulfill. (the trespass offering) 

    B. The Trespass Offering is compulsory      

          This is compulsory because  "if ye don't forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father 

          forgive your trespasses." (Matt.6:15)  Jesus is not saying you will lose your salvation, because you have
          already offered the Sin Offering. He is saying, you will remain a prisoner to your own offenses if you do 
          not forgive one another.
(Matt.18:23-35)  There is no point in going any farther (Matt.5:23-24, Mark.11:25
in worshiping God until you have forgiven your neighbor. Jesus is confirming (Gal.3:16, Dan.9:27) and
(Matt.5:17-19) the pattern of the five offerings in the Old Testament. The Sin Offering and the
Trespass Offering must be offered first before offering the Burnt, Meal, and Peace Offerings which were
voluntary, or freewill Offerings) Cain offered the freewill "Meal offering" ("the fruit of the ground") to cover
          his sin and not the "
Sin Offering" and was rejected. (Gen.4:1-4, 1John.12, Heb.11:4, Jude.1:11)

    C. Watch out for the counterfeit Trespass Offering!      

          The god of this world has a counterfeit "Trespass Offering" just "like"
(2Cor.4:4, Isa.14:14)the true. It
          is appeasing and compromising with no principles. (Not offending anyone at the expense of the truth of
          God's Word) There are standard requirements for each offering The children of Israel called "the Church in
          the wilderness,"
(Acts.7:38) and their typical actions were "for our (The Church, the Body of Christ -    
           Eph.1:22-23, Col.1:18
) ensamples: (types) and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends
          of the world are come."
(1Cor.10:1-11, Rom.15:4) The reality or the fulfillment (Matt.5:17-19, Rom.3:31,
of these standards are the same for the Church today.                       

   1. The Trespass Offering was
consumed by fire! (on the Altar)     

              God's Word is a "fire!" Is not "my word like as a fire? saith the Lord; and like a hammer that breaketh the
               rock in pieces?"
(Jer 23:29, 1Cor.3:13-15)        
a.  Holy Spirit and fire / purge             

                     John said, "I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me...he shall
                     baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire: Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge
                     his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire."
(Matt.3:11-13) For "the day" (the day of atonement) shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by   
; and the fire shall try every  man's work of
what sort it is." (1Cor.3:13-15)      

b.  Fire / trial / Proving             

                     Beloved, "think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange
                     thing happened unto you:"
(1 Peter 4:12-13)  It is all part of the preparation to be the Bride. Don't
                     jump off the altar  when the heat is on. (i.e. when the Holy Spirit convicts you through the written

         2. The Trespass Offering was placed on the only altar(subjected to the fire / Word of God)   

               Today, most think of "the altar" as being a bench in the front of the Church. However, the "Most High
               dwelleth not in Temples made with hands."
(Acts.7:47-48) There is no sacred property in the New
               Testament. We are the "holy Temple."
(Eph.2:20-22, 1Peter.2:5) We are the ground. (2Cor.4:7) God's 
               Blessing and holiness is only there because we are there. Note: The example of Joseph. "The Lord
               blessed the Egyptian's house for Joseph's sake; and the blessing of the Lord was upon all that he had
               in the house, and in the field."

               a.  The"Altar"points to Jesus           

"altar" that God recognizes under the New Covenant (Testament) is the Lord Jesus Christ. 
(Heb.13:10)  The altar was the only place of sacrifice. (Lev.17:1-11, 1Peter.1:18-20)  The altar was the
                     only place where blood was shed to provide atonement.
(Lev.17:1-11, Exod.30:9, John.14:6, 1Tim.2:5)      

               b.  Warning given to not offer upon "another" altar!             

                    "Whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of the strangers which sojourn among you, that
                    offereth (offers)  a burnt offering of sacrifice,  And bringeth (brings) it not unto the door of the
                    tabernacle of the congregation, to offer it unto the Lord; even that man shall be cut off from among
                    his people."
(Lev 17:8-9)  Jesus said,
                    (1)  "I am the way" (the ONLY Altar)
                    (2)  There is no other Altar in Heavenly Places, if you want to meet with God
                    (3)  Since Man was driven out of the garden, he knows he needs to be back in God's presence

                    Man-made "altar's" could never do this!  Even in the Tabernacle model, God said that He had "no
                    pleasure" because it could never take away sin.
(Heb.10:1-10) Your "trespass offering" must be upon 
                    the Altar of the Lord Jesus Christ    


         3. The Trespass Offering required sacrifice and the shedding of blood       

               Our justification before God is always through the atoning blood of the The Lord Jesus Christ.
               Adam and Eve "sewed fig leaves,"
(Gen.3:7) but God slew an animal and covered their sin with "coats
               of skin"
(Gen.3:21, Heb.4:13)  Your "trespass offering" must be through the shed blood of Christ       

         4. The Trespass Offering required the sweet smelling odor      

               Every offering was to have "a sweet savour unto the Lord."
(Gen.8:21, Lev.1:9; 2:2; 3:5; 4:31)
               "Christ...hath given Himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour." 

                (Eph.5:1-2, 2Cor.2:15)
  Your "trespass offering" must have the "preeminence" of a "sweetsmelling  
               savor of Christ

         5. Only the priests could offer the Trespass Offering      
               In the Old Testament "ensample"(type, shadow, figure) "the priests, Aaron's sons. shall bring the 
               blood and sprinkle the blood..."
(Lev.1:5, 7, 11; 2:2, 9; 3:2, 8; 4:7) There were those the assume the
               office of a priest, and were rejected. 
(1Kings.12:30-33; 13:16, 2Chron.26:16-23, 1Sam.13:12; 15:1-35) 
               No "strangers!" No unbeliever! No unsaved!  God still requires that we be found in the correct
               "register" and "genealogy."
(Num.1:47-54, Eph.2:11-19) that begins in Christ Jesus (John.3:1-8, 

                2Cor.5:17-21) If you are not a priest your "trespass  offering" is for nothing.

         6. This Trespass Offering can have no blemishes     

               This is what the Prophet Malachi was speaking to the House of Judah. He prophesied "Ye offer
               polluted bread upon mine altar; and ye say, Wherein have we polluted thee?  In that ye say, The
               table of the Lord is contemptible.  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 1:7-8) This was robbing God! (Mal.3:8)     

               a. The Trespass Offering must not be "bind"(Lev.22:21-23)          

                    The blemish of "blindness" (2Peter.1:5-9, Matt.13:10-17, Eph.1:18)  Some translations use "heart"
                    instead of "eyes."  This does not change the thought of our lack of understanding is being blind.    
                     (Matt.13:16, Luke.24:16, 25-31, 2Cor.3:13-16, Eph.4:18)
To offer a "spiritual sacrifice" (i.e. The Sin,
                    Trespass, Burnt, Meal or Peace Offering) devoid of the Word of God is a blemish of blindness, and
                    is robbing God. (Mal.1:8; 3:8) Note: Matt.23:23    
                b. The Trespass Offering cannot be "broken"(Lev.22:22-23)          

                    Unfaithfulness. (Prov.25:19) To offer any of these five offerings with unfaithfulness in our life
                    towards God is a blemished offering (Eph.5:26-27) and is robbing God. (Mal.1:8; 3:8) Note: Matt.23:23    
               c.  The Trespass Offering must not be "maimed"

                    Maimed is to be crippled or damaged. English: is to mutilate, disfigure, or wound seriously. The 
                    Hebrew word is to point sharply, i.e. (literally) to wound. To offer any crippled offering is to deprive  
                    yourself the of capability for service or of strength, efficiency, or wholeness.     

              d.   The Trespasscannot be offered "having a wen"(Lev.22:22-23)          

                    Having an offering that is mutilated, disfigured, or wounded seriously is robbing God. (Mal.1:8;
                      3:8 / Note: Matt.23:23)
Paul spoke of those the "corrupt the Word of God (2Cor.2:17) Jude wrote, that   
                    there were "certain men crept in unawares...turning the grace of God into lasciviousness, and denying
                    the only Lord God, and or Lord Jesus Christ." (Jude.1:4) These "certain men" were disfiguring the Grace
                    of God.     

               e.  The Trespass Offering cannot have "scurvy"(Lev.22:22-23)          

                    The word "Scurvy" is from an unused root meaning to scratch;[ to scrape or rub oneself lightly (as to
                    relieve itching) scurf (from itching) In these "last days," there are those that "heap to themselves 
                    teachers itching ears," because they will not "endure sound doctrine." (2Tim.4:3) When we offer our    
                    "spiritual" sacrifices with the "scurvy" of  the doctrines of men that appease our flesh, it is "robbing"
                    God. (Mal.1:8; 3:8)      

                f.  The Trespass Offering must not be "scabbed"(Lev.22:22-23)          

                    "Scabbed"- is to stick or scrape; scurf [thin dry scales detached from the epidermis especially in an  
                    abnormal  skin condition; specifically : dandruff] or tetter [any of various vesicular skin diseases (as
                    ringworm, eczema, and herpes) Our "spiritual sacrifice / offering" must be without the blemish
                    of allowing yourself to be infected by the popular opinion, trends, fads that infect the Church
                    world, rather than abiding by the principles and patterns of God's Word (2Sam.15:24-29./v.17, 
                     1Sam.15:24; 16:7, 2Cor.4:18) 
To offer a "spiritually sacrifice" that is  "scabbed," is a blemished  offering 
                    and robbing God. (Mal.1:8; 3:8)     

               g.  The Trespass Offering must not have any "superfluous thing"(Lev.22:22-23)          

                    "Superfluous"- is to prolong, i.e. (reflex) be deformed by excess of members.  Our "spiritual offering
                    must be free of "excess" in our lives. In our walk before the Lord must be in moderation (Phil.4:5 -
                    [appropriate, i.e. (by implication) mild] 1Cor.13:4, Matt.23:12, 1Peter.5:6) or else it is blemished and
                    robbing God. (Mal.1:8; 3:8) 

               h.  The Trespass Offering must give off a "sweet smelling savor."

                    Our offering must have the sweet smelling savor of Christ. (Eph.5:1-2, 2Cor.2:14-16, Lev.1:9; 2:2;
                      3:5, 16; 4:31, Eph.5:1-2, Phil.4:18)    
Think of Shad, Mech, Abed no smell (savour) of the fire. (Dan.)

                i.  The Trespass Offering mustbe offered by a "Priest."           

                    We become priests when we are born again.  (Num.1:47-54, Lev.1:9, 15; 2:2; 3:2, 16. 1Peter.2:5,

                j.  The Trespass Offering musthave the atoning blood sacrifice           

                    The "meal offering" (Lev.1:5; 3:2; 4:4, Col.1:14) was the only offering that did not have atoning blood, 
                    because this offering points to our good works (Eph.2:8-10) and giving of material things. (Review the
                    "Meal Offering.")

Trespass Offering

The Sin and Trespass offering are to separate offerings.

1.  Because God separated 
     these two offerings.
     a.  Lev.4:1-35
     b.  Lev.5:1-19; 6:1-7

2.  This is confirmed in the
     New Testament reality 
     a.  2Cor.5:21, 1John.1:9
     b.  Matt.6:14-15 

The Worlds Counterfeit  "trespass Offering" (appeasing everyone and everything, not offending)
