This week’s study is a powerful picture of Yeshua. The five types of Korban (offerings) listed below are to bring us into HIS presence. We will always have a struggle with the flesh, even as Shaul (Paul) wrote in Romans 5; we continue to “do what we don’t want to do, and we don’t do what we should do.” Why? Our flesh is still alive and it is warring with our Yeshua Spirit in us. Thank Yahweh we have HIS Love, passion and the Korban of HIS flesh life, Yeshua.

An offering implies a gift which satisfies the receiver. Just “COME NEAR!” The Almighty does not need our gifts—He has no needs or desires. The Hebrew word is korban, which is best translated as a means of bringing oneself into a closer relationship with the Almighty. The offerings or korbanot were only for our benefit to come close to the Almighty. All of these are Yeshua. Now we can bring them as Holy before the Lord as I Peter 2:5 tells us to bring these holy & acceptable offerings to HIM.
