Leviticus 6-7:27

O.K. something must have been lost in the translation. How does one do the following unintentionally:

If anyone sins and commits a trespass against the Lord and deals falsely with his neighbor in a matter of deposit given him to keep, or of bargain or pledge, or of robbery, or has oppressed his neighbor, Or has found what was lost and lied about it, or swears falsely, in any of all the things which men do and sin in so doing, Then if he has sinned and is guilty, he shall restore what he took by robbery, or what he secured by oppression or extortion, or what was delivered him to keep in trust, or the lost thing which he found,
(Leviticus 6:2-4 AMP)

If a guilt offering is offered for “unintentional” sin, how can what is being described in this above passage be considered unintentional? Something MUST have been lost/missed in translating the Hebrew to English. How can one be devious and not know that what you are doing is wrong? The mere fact that people cover up their deeds with lies and “smoke” and “mirrors” gives witness to the fact that they knew that what they did was wrong. Maybe the “unintentional” refers to unintentional until I am “busted” or caught by someone else or my conscience.

In reading several translations of Leviticus 5:14-19, which is right above the King James Translation makes a little more sense; however, the passage states that this “guilt” or trespass offering is for those who have “ignorance of the holy things.”

And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, If a soul commit a trespass, and sin through ignorance, in the holy things of the LORD; then he shall bring for his trespass unto the LORD a ram without blemish out of the flocks, with thy estimation by shekels of silver, after the shekel of the sanctuary, for a trespass offering: (Leviticus 5:14-15 KJV)

Yet, after hearing the Law, how can one plead ignorance? Beware OYB journeymen and women the more you read, the more you are held accountable for and the less you can claim “ignorance.”

While I chew on the above, I am pleasantly surprised to have confirmed for me that sin and trespass are not one and the same, a trespass is a sin but all sin is not a trespass. According to my friend, Mr/Dr. Strong the Hebrew word translated into our English is:

4604
מעל
ma‛al
mah'-al
From H4608; treachery, that is, sin: - falsehood, grievously, sore, transgression, trespass, X very.

Grace and peace,

Good morning! Feb 18, 2021

The fire must never go out (lev 6:1-7:27)
We must keep our eternal fire of the holy spirit going forever.

Mark 3:7-30
It's amazing how the spirits and demons know who Jesus was when humans haven't the slightest- family said he's out-of his mind-Pharisees say he is possessed by demons and driving out Satan with Satan. But God said alot of things can be forgiven- except blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. That will never be forgiven.

Ps 37:1-11

I like this: take delight in the Lord - he will give you -hearts desire

Be still in the Lord!

Prov 10:3-4
The Lord will not let the godly go hungry-pray for our world and pray every one has plenty to eat and healed mind, body, soul.

Be blessed

Mark 3:29 Unpardonable sin

This question comes up every once in awhile in my journey amongst friends. It is easy to take the verse out of context and think it pertains to us in some way. The gotquestions.org site referred to has a really good answer and takes into account the situation, place and time this was written. It’s interesting too how the “Pharisees knew that Jesus was the Messiah sent by God to save Israel. They knew the prophecies were being fulfilled. They saw Jesus’ wonderful works, and they heard His clear presentation of truth. Yet they deliberately chose to deny the truth and slander the Holy Spirit”. So this passage is to an ongoing willful rejection of Jesus. I might argue that we might see that attitude some places in the world today but I don’t want to go down that path. This was clearly a statement Jesus made against the Pharisees at that time.


John Piper has something to say about this: https://www.desiringgod.org/messages/beyond-forgiveness-blasphemy-against-the-spirit


Psalm 37:1-11 Feed my Soul

I needed this today. With Covid, my work, my family, I can definitely feel my emotional and spiritual reserves are draining me. This reading gave me strength in my challenges of life in a fallen world. Now Bob, “Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him”. This waiting is often the highest way of doing God’s will. I’m going to have another cup Maxwell coffee, look at the snow covered shoreline and listen to the Battistelli Worship Video.

Good debate there. It’s a real head and heart issue. What I got out of Leviticus was the one-fifth payment for restitution for stealing from another person in verse 6:5. Also that penalty to offer God. I know its Old Testament law but I think God may still honor this practice today? Again more a head and heart issue. If you are like me, this debate is going on all the time in my head.
