Who shall stay the hand of the Lord?
Laws for Canaan
15 Now the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2 “Speak to the Israelites and say to them, ‘When you come into the land where you are to live, which I am giving you, 3 then make an offering by fire to the Lord, a burnt offering or a sacrifice to fulfill a special vow, or as a freewill offering or in your appointed feasts, to make a sweet and soothing aroma to the Lord, from the herd or from the flock. 4 The one who presents his offering shall present to the Lord a grain offering of a tenth of an ephah of fine flour mixed with a fourth of a [a]hin of oil, 5 and you shall prepare wine for the drink offering, a fourth of a hin, with the burnt offering or for the sacrifice, for each lamb. 6 Or for a ram you shall prepare as a grain offering two-tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with a third of a hin of oil. 7 And for the drink offering you shall offer a third of a hin of wine, as a sweet and soothing aroma to the Lord. 8 When you prepare a bull as a burnt offering or as a sacrifice, in fulfilling a special vow or peace offering to the Lord, 9 then you shall offer with the bull a grain offering of three-tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with half a hin of oil; 10 and you shall bring as the drink offering one-half a hin of wine as an offering by fire, as a sweet and soothing aroma to the Lord.
11 ‘Thus shall it be done for each bull, or for each ram, or for each of the male lambs, or of the goats. 12 According to the number that you prepare, so shall you do to everyone according to their number. 13 All who are native-born shall do these things in this way, in presenting an offering by fire, as a sweet and soothing aroma to the Lord.
Law of the Stranger
14 If a stranger lives as a resident alien with you, or whoever may be among you throughout your generations, and he wishes to make an offering by fire, as a sweet and soothing aroma to the Lord, just as you do, so shall he do. 15 As for the assembly, there shall be one [and the same] statute for you [of the congregation] and for the stranger who is a resident alien with you, a permanent statute throughout your generations; as you are, so shall the stranger be before the Lord. 16 There is to be one law and one ordinance for you and for the stranger who lives with you as a resident alien.’”
17 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 18 “Speak to the Israelites and say to them, ‘When you enter the land to which I am bringing you, 19 then, when you eat the food of the land, you shall lift up an offering (heave offering) to the Lord. 20 You shall lift up a cake made of the first of your [ground grain which has been made into] dough as an offering [to the Lord]; as an offering from the threshing floor, so shall you lift it up. 21 From the first of your dough (ground grain) you shall give to the Lord an offering throughout your generations.
22 ‘But when you unintentionally fail and do not observe all these commandments, which the Lord has spoken to Moses, 23 even all that the Lord has commanded you [b]through Moses, from the day that the Lord gave commandments and onward throughout your generations, 24 then it shall be, if it was done unintentionally without the knowledge of the congregation, that all the congregation shall offer one young bull as a burnt offering, as a sweet and soothing aroma to the Lord, with its grain offering and its drink offering, according to the ordinance, and one male goat as a sin offering. 25 Then the priest shall make atonement for all the congregation of the sons of Israel, and they will be forgiven, for it was an error and they have brought their offering, an offering by fire to the Lord, and their sin offering before the Lord, for their error. 26 So all the congregation of the Israelites will be forgiven as well as the stranger who lives among them as a resident alien, because all the people were involved in the error.
27 ‘Also if one person sins unintentionally, then he shall offer a female goat one year old as a sin offering. 28 The priest shall make atonement before the Lord for the person who commits an error when he sins unintentionally, making atonement for him so that he may be forgiven. 29 You shall have one law for him who sins unintentionally, whether he is native-born among the Israelites or a stranger who is living among them as a resident alien. 30 But the person who does [anything wrong] [c]willfully and defiantly, whether he is native-born or a stranger, that one is blaspheming the Lord, and that person shall be cut off from among his people [excluding him from the atonement made for them]. 31 Because he has despised and rejected the word of the Lord, and has broken His commandment, that person shall be utterly cut off; [the responsibility for] his wickedness and guilt will be upon him.’”
The Lies of Cults that Do Not Serve YHWH
Sacrifices Are Alive And Well! By Deborah Gettes
“Although it is not possible to make sacrifices at the Temple today, that doesn’t exclude us from having to put forth an effort to bring ourselves closer to God — making our own korbanot. We can draw closer to God if we act in a God-like way. Our practice of benevolence is shown through kindness, compassion, generosity, and goodwill for the earth and its inhabitants. The study of Torah and prayer are other means that bring us closer to God. They allow us to act in a God-like way.”

Lies! What does the Temple have to do with offerings commanded by YHWH from Mt Sinai as an ever lasting covenant? You do err greatly in deceiving the people of God!
THIS IS FALSE AND TREACHERY AGAINST YHWH – TO CHANGE HIS WORDS TO APPEASE THOSE WHO WILL NOT PERFORM KARBANOT AND YHWH MITZVOT.
The very title of the article above at myjewishlearning.com displays the lies. Sacrifice is NOT alive and well in Israel, nor can it be as those who rule there are not of YHWH, nor His chosen, but they are the seed of guilt and thus do not obey YHWH.
Deborah Gettes goes on to say,
“In his famous book Guide for the Perplexed, Moses Maimonides argues that sacrifices were an early form of worship given to the Jewish people so that they could learn how to serve God without feeling different from all other peoples surrounding them. Slowly, Maimonides says, the people learned that “the sacrificial service is not the primary objective of the commandments but that prayer is a better means of obtaining nearness to God.” Agreeing with the early Rabbis, Maimonides emphasizes that the superiority of prayer is that “it can be offered everywhere and by every person.” (A Torah Commentary for Our Times, UAHC Press, 1990, p. 100)”
RamBam said this because he was living amongst Muslims in Egypt in sin. He was not permitted to perform sacrifice, nor could he without Levites. Therefore, to appease the guilt of the people, who wished for following Torah, he lied to them and made his words over the words of YHWH, which has caused complete kareth for all eternity, for attempting to change the word of YHWH.
Proof of these apostates is the fact they worship this Egyptian, Maimonides like he is Moses, and the unerring word of YHWH. All who do such acts are servants of Baal, not YHWH. For they choose to follow what is contrary to the word of YHWH through changing of halakhot and omitting verses of Torah to cover their sin, 12 centuries after the fall of Beit HaMikdash.
Laws for Offerings
28 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2 “Command the Israelites and say to them, ‘You shall be careful to present at its appointed time [during the year] My offering, My food for My offerings by fire as a sweet and soothing aroma to Me.’ 3 You shall say to the people, ‘This is the offering by fire which you shall present to the Lord every day: two male lambs one year old without blemish as a continual burnt offering. 4 You shall offer one lamb in the morning and you shall offer the other lamb at twilight, 5 also a tenth of an ephah of finely-milled flour as a grain offering, mixed with a fourth of a hin of pressed oil. 6 It is a continual burnt offering which was ordained on Mount Sinai as a sweet and soothing aroma, an offering by fire to the Lord.
WHERE IS MY OFFERING SAYETH THE LORD GOD OF OUR FATHERS!
For you call YHWH, HaShem, because you know Him not, nor do you follow His mitzvot. Instead you contrive your own laws and say to your followers, “since we cannot obey YHWH then we must do this in our hearts to appease Him.”
“Scoundrels! Fiends and snakes, have slithered in amongst my people,” sayeth the Lord of Hosts and I shall rip out my people from amongst the nations, I shall pull down the walls of perdition, and the hidden hearts of those who call themselves my people. See to it now, count the days, for they are numbered, says the Lord of Hosts. Count the days now since you declare a jubilee, which I have not declared,” says the Lord. “Who told you to leave off my offerings? Did I not command you when you entered my land that I have given to Abraham, Issac, and Jacob, for all time, did I not say unto you, make me an offering and this is to be done in all generations? Where is my offering oh Israel? Where is my offering, people of a foul heart? Who shall stand forth in the midst of thee and champion my cause? Who shall rise up and plead my case says the Lord?
For I have set a fire round about, see I have done it. I will hiss from the North and the armies shall pour forth to cleanse my land and the sinners thereof, that the prophets may find recognition in your eyes. I shall turn the trough upon itself and you shall swim in muddy waters. The Lord of Hosts will not spare nor compromise His will and His word that is for everlasting to everlasting. Stir up then this trough of diseased water and let it spill down upon my land and the stink shall be looked upon, and they shall say, “was this not the chosen people?” and they shall answer”Nay, these did not serve the Lord, neither in heart, nor in spirit, but with loud voices did they cry out in confidence against YHWH.”
For behold you believe I have settled you in the land, says the Lord, I have settled the tares and the wheat together and the tares shall be burned out. The wheat will be gathered into my barn says the Lord.
Answer the Lord now, “what gift have you given unto me in my land? Where is my offering? Where is the smell of fat and precious ointment of which I commanded thee? Where are my precious tables and instruments? Did I not command thee to care for all these things as stewards of My house?”
Thus then, since you have not obeyed my voice, no, not once in a Jubilee, thus says the Lord of Hosts, I spew you out of my mouth. I reject you from my land. I will hiss for fly and drought, I will hiss for armies of the North to come upon you that you may know that I am the Lord. I will take the half of my people whom say they are my chosen and depart them from the land. You shall weep and wail for the calamity I pour out upon you sayeth the Lord of Hosts. In that day you shall know that I am not forgotten by those who serve me. And those who call themselves my children will rot on the highways of my cities. Your bodies shall lay open in the field for your disgrace and for your disobedience in serving me. I am the Lord God who took you out from the land of Egypt and set you up in my house for all to see. Now they shall see your sin and mock your disobedience. The people will say, “Is that not they who were chosen?” and the people will answer “they were not the chosen, the Lord has cleansed His house.”
So be it YHWH, all power and glory be to the King of the Universe who glorifies His name.
