Y'shua, Jesus, The Feast Of First Fruits
Did you know that that today is the 17th day of Nisan and the 1984th year anniversary of the resurrection of the Messiah? It is interesting to note that on that year, this day fell on the Feast of First Fruits, signifying that Y'shua, Jesus was the First Fruits of the grave and those believers, who would follow him. Also, many new beginnings fell on the 17th of Nisan, such as Noah and his family departing the Ark after the flood, the Israelites crossing through the Red Sea, the end of Esther's three day fast resulting in a secession of Haman's death penalty and the Manna stopping and the grain beginning after 40 years, in the desert. All pointing to the ultimate 'New Beginning', in Y'shua ha Mashiach, Jesus Christ, on this appointed day, by God. Finally, I must mention that, even though Pilate and the High Priest conspired to seal the tomb and guard it, Y'shua, Jesus rose from the grave and none of his contemporaries disputed the fact.
