12 “But you profane it, In that you say, ‘The table of the LORD is defiled; And its fruit, its food, is contemptible.’ 13 You also say, ‘Oh, what a weariness!’ And you sneer at it,” Says the LORD of hosts. “And you bring the stolen, the lame, and the sick; Thus you bring an offering! Should I accept this from your hand?” Says the LORD. 14 “But cursed be the deceiver Who has in his flock a male, And takes a vow, But sacrifices to the Lord what is blemished— For I am a great King,” Says the LORD of hosts, “And My name is to be feared among the nations. 1 “And now, O priests, this commandment is for you. 2 If you will not hear, And if you will not take it to heart, To give glory to My name,” Says the LORD of hosts, “I will send a curse upon you, And I will curse your blessings. Yes, I have cursed them already, Because you do not take it to heart. Malachi 1:12 – 2:2
When we fail to rightly discern the Lord's Body in the Bread and Cup, Malachi 1:11 – 2:2 says it's His Name that we have profaned. When we regard it as just a part of institutional churchianity and don't take to heart that it is the substance of all of His sufferings, then our blessings are cursed.
While there's much that can be said about Lord Jesus and the Holy Bible being our unblemished male in sacrifice to God that is not to be substituted for with thoughts of our having any righteousness with God aside from Christ's or any right to edification with writings outside of the Holy Bible through which we'd finish our course with joy because of viewing Scripture as such a weariness to be sneered at, the part about being a deceiver who doesn't take it to heart that His Name is to be feared among the nations and we are to give glory to His Name for all He's done and more than that... He is our great King. This hasn't adequately registered with many from ancient times to the present.
What we bring to the temple of our bodies is the means by which we take it to heart that He is a great King. (Zechariah 7:4-7) When we say that the worship of the Lord is inadequate, as in some Dispensationalist circles with viewing the Lord's table as works based salvation on par with circumcision, our blessings are cursed because we aren't fearing His Name, aren't acknowledging Him as our great King. He challenges us to try to offer what we're offering Him to earthly dignitaries and see if we wouldn't feel extremely awkward in doing so and how we might even get in trouble for it.
Should our great King have to accept any dishonour from us?
