VIII. MAIN BODY:

A. Burnt offerings and sin offerings

"In burnt offerings and sin offerings"

Burnt offerings and sin offerings does not pleased GOD, Why?

Because they're offered up under the Law, if they don't offer they die under the Law, it's not voluntarily offered but enforced with punishment.

Hebrews 10:8 (Amplified Bible)

10:8 When He said just before, You have neither desired, nor have You taken delight in sacrifices and offerings and burnt offerings and sin offerings—all of which are offered according to the Law—

Hebrews 10:4 (Amplified Bible)

10:4 Because the blood of bulls and goats is powerless to take sins away.

B. GOD has no delight in them

"You have taken no delight"

The word delight or "no pleasure" is "eudokeo" in Greek meaning:

1. it seems good to one, is one’s good pleasure

2. to be well pleased with, take pleasure in, to be favourably inclined towards one

Why is GOD not pleased with sacrifices and offerings?

Because they cannot take sins away.

Hebrews 10:4 (Amplified Bible)

10:4 Because the blood of bulls and goats is powerless to take sins away.

It is only a cover-up for sins.

Leviticus 1:3-4 (Amplified Bible)

1:3 If his offering is a burnt offering from the herd, he shall offer a male without blemish; he shall offer it at the door of the Tent of Meeting, that he may be accepted before the Lord.

1:4 And he shall lay [both] his hands upon the head of the burnt offering [transferring symbolically his guilt to the victim], and it shall be an acceptable atonement for him.

It is offered up being enforced by rewards and punishment.

Hebrews 10:8 (Amplified Bible)

10:8 When He said just before, You have neither desired, nor have You taken delight in sacrifices and offerings and burnt offerings and sin offerings—all of which are offered according to the Law—

GOD is well pleased with the following:

1. Enoch pleased GOD

Hebrews 11:5 (Amplified Bible)

11:5 Because of faith Enoch was caught up and transferred to heaven, so that he did not have a glimpse of death; and he was not found, because God had translated him. For even before he was taken to heaven, he received testimony [still on record] that he had pleased and been satisfactory to God.

2. Faith pleases GOD

Hebrews 11:6 (Amplified Bible)

11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out].

3. Doing good and communications are sacrifices that pleases GOD

Hebrews 13:16 (Amplified Bible)

13:16 Do not forget or neglect to do kindness and good, to be generous and distribute and contribute to the needy [of the church as embodiment and proof of fellowship], for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.

4. JESUS, our LORD pleases GOD

Matthew 3:17 (Amplified Bible)

3:17 And behold, a voice from heaven said, This is My Son, My Beloved, in Whom I delight!

Matthew 12:18 (Amplified Bible)

12:18 Behold, My Servant Whom I have chosen, My Beloved in and with Whom My soul is well pleased and has found its delight. I will put My Spirit upon Him, and He shall proclaim and show forth justice to the nations.

Matthew 17:5 (Amplified Bible)

17:5 While he was still speaking, behold, a shining cloud [composed of light] overshadowed them, and a voice from the cloud said, This is My Son, My Beloved, with Whom I am [and have always been] delighted. Listen to Him!

5. GOD is pleased in giving us His Kingdom
