As I re-read the last posting today, I got to wondering how individuals in the church should respond. I am a Gentile believer as are most in the church today. As such we are not bound by the Jewish ceremonial law. So what about the remonstrance God made to Israel for the "...torn, and the lame, and the sick;" As a Gentile I don't sacrifice animals to the Lord such as a male in the flock whether corrupt or not.
As I read Adam Clarke's comments on Malachi 1:14, he made reference to Ananias and Saffira, his wife in Acts 5:1. The whole account is found in Acts 5:1-11. The crux of the story is that they lied to the Holy Ghost about their sale of some property and when they were found out (See Numbers 32:23b) they fell down dead at Peter's feet. The sin was not in keeping back a part of the price but in lying to the Holy Ghost.
