Did you know, that in the Talmud, which is a type of Jewish study guide, for the Bible, there are many Messianic prophecy's? One such prophecy states, that just before the coming of the Messiah, a great amount of Christians and Muslims will join their Messianic Jewish brothers and sisters and return to their Jewish roots and become Torah observant, not out of obligation, as the Jews, but in symbolic reverence to the law. Writers of the Talmud saw this as a great heretical movement. However, many Messianic Jews see this as a fulfillment of the Prodigal Son Parable. Regardless, since the early 1960s, many pagan Christians have been making the move, back to the original church, Messianic Judaism, an amazing fulfillment of this prophecy.

Did you know that the Kingdom Parables, found in Matthew 13 and Mark 4, were originally taught not only as examples of what the Kingdom would be like, but as warnings? A great example of this is the Parable of the Mustard Seed. God is very consistent with his symbolism. Within the Jewish culture of the first century, a mustard Bush was not allowed to grow into a tree, but maintained as a bush. Also, the birds of the air is consistently used to represent disciples of Satan or even Satan himself. Even though the Parable of the Mustard Seed is an example of how the kingdom can grow from the smallest seed, but it is also a warning not to let the local congregation grow too big as to allow the disciples of Satan or even Satan himself find a home, to influence the flock. Unfortunately, Satan is alive and well and has infiltrated our church, due to the Body of Christ forgetting its Jewish Roots. Remember, Y'shua, Jesus did not come to establish another religion but to fulfill the original one.

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.

Did you know that today is the 14th of Nisan, Passover and the approximate 1984th year anniversary of the Messiah's death upon the cross? Most Christians believe that Jesus died on the cross on Good Friday. However, most scholars believe now that it was Wednesday, that Y'shua, Jesus was on the cross and resurrected sometime after 6 PM the following Saturday. Haven't you ever wondered why it wasn't three days from Good Friday till Resurrection Sunday? On this appointed day, remember to tell your children, the story from the original Passover and how it foreshadowed the events from the last Last Supper to the Feast of First Fruits, the day that Y'shua, Jesus rose from the grave victorious over death.

Did you know that every Christian, on the planet earth, can recite John 3:16, but very few know John 3:14-15, which explains John 3:16? In these verses, Jesus discusses, with Nicodemus, the story of how Moses lifted up the serpent, in the desert. Whoever looked and placed their trust upon this act was saved from the sting of the serpent. The Bible is very consistent with its symbolism. The serpent symbolizes sin and its sting is death. Jesus goes on to tell Nicodemus that a Son of Man must take the place of the serpent. That is what Passover is all about, the passing of death, from mankind, due to the act of Y'shua, Jesus, upon the cross.

Did you know that today is the 10th of Nisan, on the Hebrew calendar? This is the day that the lambs would be presented to the high priest for inspection, for the Passover sacrifice. This is also the day that Y'shua, Jesus, allowed himself to be presented, for the first time, as the Messiah, the Lamb of God, as he rode in to Jerusalem, on the back of a mule, an exact day fulfillment of prophecy, foretold, by Daniel and Zechariah, both between 500-600 years before the time of Jesus.

Did you know that there has been only one man to fit the bill of Son of Man, Son of God and sinless before the Law of God? This person has fulfilled over 300 prophesies pertaining to the Messiah, a feat that has the odds of 1 in 10,000,000,000,000,000,000 for one man to fulfill, even if he deliberately attempted self fulfillment. No other man has even come close. This man freely gave his life, as the ultimate sacrifice, for the sins of mankind, upon the altar of God, around 2000 years ago. His name is Y'shua haMashiach haNotzri, known as Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

Did you know that, according to the Bible, God requires a willing sacrifice of like kind, when an infraction, against the law, is commited? This is the conundrum, that I spoke of, yesterday. Since there was no innocent man to sacrifice, God's solution was a hybrid, with the body, mind and soul of a man, with the Spirit of God. This hybrid, a Son of man and a Son of God, would have the Word of God as an integral part of his being and thereby be sinless and innocent, according to the Law of God.

Did you know that God requires his creation to be in equilibrium, balanced out? That's why, when someone disobeys God's law, which is defined as sin, God requires retribution, or payment for that disobedience. As barbaric and unjust, as the world sees it, when an innocent person sins, God requires the life blood of an innocent being, for justice. This is a conundrum, since the person, who sinned, is no longer innocent.

Did you know that the Bible says that Rabbits chew their cud and that atheists and nonbelievers quickly point this out as an error? Well obviously, Rabbits do not chew their cud. However, does this mean that the Bible has an error in it? A quick study of the Hebrew phrase, "alah garah", shows that the phrase is used to describe animals that practice rumination, chewing their cud, and refection, chewing their food raised back up after swallowing, such as a rabbit. Therefore, no error. It should be noted that the terms, such as rumination and refection are modern terms and not a disctinction, known to the ancient man. This shows that the common objections to the Bible are very disingenuous, to say the very least. This also shows the importance of the Bible believer getting back to their Hebraic Roots to fight the cultural war that we are now engaged.

Did you know that Alexander the great conquered the known world within a time span of only 13 years, 336–323 BC? However, what is even more astonishing is the fact, that Daniel, the prophet, prophesied about Alexander and his Great Greek Empire in approximately 553 BC., approximately 215 years before Alexander showed up on the scene. Josephus, documented that the High Priest, Jaddua, in 332 BC, met with Alexander and showed him the prophecy. Alexander was so amazed, that he offered sacrifice and praises in the temple of God. What amazes me is that the world continues to deny the legitimacy of the Bible.

Did you know that atheist and other nonbelievers ridicule the story of David and Goliath as either not being true or not a story of great faith? However, as archaeologists find more and more evidence of giants having lived, in ancient times and around the world, this ridicule began to center on David's faith, as he went into the battle against Goliath. They made fun of him saying, "If David had so much faith in the Lord, why did he pick up five stones, instead of just one? " Well, if atheist had actually read the Bible, they would know that David, was not only faithful he could slay Goliath, but also ready for his four giant brothers.

Did you know that the popular church teaching, “All men came from Adam and Eve.” cannot be found within the pages of the Bible? Check it out. You will find that, on the sixth day, Genesis chapter one states that God created man and tells them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it.” However, in chapter two, God creates the Garden of Eden and places Adam in it, before there were herbs, in the field, which occurs on the Third Day. There were two separate creations of man. Didn’t you ever wonder where all the men came from, that Cain was afraid of, and why they were a threat, to his well being? Well, before Adam sinned, there was no death, in the world. Afterwards????? Well, I think that I would’ve been very angry at the descendents of Adam too.
