The Peace\Fellowship Offering
Rev C.I Schofield D.D
The peace offering describes what can be, between God and man, as a result of the Burnt Offering and the Meal\Grain offering.
Mankind as God’s enemies can once again have peace with God.
Read Leviticus 3 – The peace offering & Leviticus 7:11-21 - The Law of the peace offering, for extra rules related to this offering.
1 Timothy 2:5 “This is good and pleases God our Saviour, who wants all men to be saved and come to a knowledge of the Truth. For there is on God and one mediator between God and man, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ransom for all men, the testimony given its proper time.”
The peace offering speaks of the whole work of Christ related to the believer’s peace with God. He made peace!
“For God was pleased to have all His fullness dwell in Him, and through Him to reconcile to Himself all things in heaven, by making peace though His blood on the cross”
“We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ”
He is our Peace
“He Himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, by abolishing in His flesh the law with it’s commandments and regulations. His purpose was to create in Himself one new man out of two, thus making peace.”
Both God and the sinner meet in peace;
God is propitiated and the sinner reconciled, both alike satisfied with what Christ has done. Through Christs work we have fellowship with God.
The peace offering provided food for the priests.
It is the breasts and shoulders of the offering, which belonged to the priests and these were cooked and the priests were fed.
The Challenge of peace for the church is that Christ has left us His Peace, which speaks of continual fellowship with God.
“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.”
“I have taught you --- so that In Me you may have peace”
“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts”
“Be anxious about nothing but in everything by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your requests to God, and the peace of God which goes beyond all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”
“You will keep him in perfect peace, him whose mind is steadfast (On You), because He trusts in you.”
The perfect person and work of Christ provides our PEACE with God, which is the basis of peace with each other.
