Jesus said:

But go ye and learn what [that] meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice:

for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

Matthew 9:13 [1898 Young’s Literal translation]

Everything that follows in these handbooks must be considered in the light of the above scripture, and it would do well to remember that Christians also commit sin.

Having experienced mercy it will be our joy to do the spiritual sacrifices detailed in the handbooks.




"How much more, then, will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse our consciences from acts that lead to death, so that we may serve the living God." Hebrews 9:14.

The sin offering sacrifice is obligatory by believers, and the New Testament equivalent is accepting salvation and forgiveness.

In Leviticus 4 we find the sin offering in which blood and flesh atone for sin.

The purpose of the



is to preach the good news of the Gospel of atonement by salvation through Jesus Christ.

We need to let the people know the Good News of the kingdom of Jesus Christ.

And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!"

Romans 10:15. [New International Version]

Like cold water to a weary soul is good news from a distant land.

Proverbs 25:25. [New International Version]

He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.........

Mark 16:15. [New International Version]

We need to remember it is the Holy Spirit that brings conviction: -

When he comes, he will convict the world of guilt in regard to sin and righteousness and judgement.

John 16:8. [New International Version]

We need to follow the lead of the Holy Spirit in practicing this meeting.

"The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners, and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favour."

Luke 4:18, 19. [New International Version]

I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by observing the law, or by believing what you heard?

Galatians 3:2.
