A Jewish Ceremony With Christian Messianic Undertones? Could It Only Be A Coincidence?

Did you know that during the Passover Seder, there are three pieces of Matzah, presented to those who are present? According to the Jewish Haggadah, these three pieces of Matzah are to be pierced and stripped, before they are presented. The center piece is then broken in two, and the larger, which is called Afikomen, which means, “He who has come, will come.”, is wrapped in a cloth and “buried” away. After Passover, the center piece is “redeemed” from it’s hiding place.
Could the three Matzah represent the three criminals of Golgotha? Could the piercing and stripping be representative of the flogging and piercing they endured? Could the center piece represent the duality of Y’shua/Jesus being the require man sacrifice, having the Spirit of God dwelling within him? Could the broken center piece represent the Messiah, when the Father drew away from him, and left the man Y’shua/Jesus to become sin and be sacrificed for the redemption of mankind? Could the broken piece represent the dead Y’shua/Jesus, that was wrapped in his burial cloth and put into the grave? Could the redeemed piece represent the redeeming Messiah rising from the grave? Could Afikomen represent his first and second future coming?

Or Could it be a Coincidence?

As for me, there is no way, that you can convince me that the Jews would have knowingly put together a ceremony that has Christian Messianic Overtones and point to our Meshiach, Y’shua, Jesus, The Christ.

What Do You Mean, Not All My Sins Are Covered?

Did you know that not all of your sins are covered by the blood of Y’shua/Jesus?
Well, let me start off with the fact that God does forgive all sins, that we confess to him and turn away from, even those sins committed, when we stumble, throughout our lives. 1 John 1:9 is referred to the Christians bar of soap. It says:

“If we confess our sins, he forgives them and cleanses us from everything we’ve done wrong.”

As a side note, a word for word translation, of 1 John 1:9 says:

“If we admit our guilt in violating God’s Law and are faithful and observant of God’s commands, that (Blood) forgives us and cleanses us from all unrighteousness.”

However, there is a particular group of sins that, if we continually and willfully indulge, will preclude us from the Kingdom. In 1 Cor 6:9 it lists these sins.

”Don’t you know that one who continues to violate God’s Law will not inherit the right or authority to rule in the Kingdom of God. Deceive not or be deceived, neither will those who indulge in unlawful sexual intercourse or hires themselves out for another's lust, nor worshippers of false gods, idolaters, even Christians, who participate, in any way, in the worship in the ways of the heathen, especially those who attends their sacrificial feasts and eats of the remains of offered victims, nor those who are faithless toward God or their mates, nor those who commit unlawful lewdness or sexual intercourse with the same sex.”
Revelation 21:8 adds those who are faithless and deceitful, to that group.

Bottom Line: If we confess our sins and rely on the blood of the Messiah for a covering for our sins, then our sins are forgiven, no matter how many times we stumble and fall. We must show our commitment (Agape) to God, by being Faithful and Observant of God’s commands, but if we falter, we are forgiven, if we confess. However, those who continually and willfully indulge in sexual lewdness, idolatry, adultery, homosexuality, faithlessness and deceitfulness will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

One last comment. God loves EVERY SINGLE INDIVIDUAL. It is the sin, that God hates.

Why We Should Know And Understand The Hebrew Lunar Calendar?

Did you know that the Remnant of God should be following a lunar calendar, in addition to the solar calendar?

No, it's not a requirement and I'm not saying that we need to drop the solar calendar, for our day to day life. However, we need to be able to follow the lunar calendar, because God has ordained it, in order for us to know and celebrate holy convocations and to recognize important events, along God's timeline.

Yes, God has established a timeline and everything is going as planned. To know, understand and follow the lunar calendar, gives us intimate knowledge that God is in control and reassurances, in our moment of weakness. Following lunar calendar and his appointed times/feasts is also a great witnessing tool to show unbelievers the amazing predictive power of a Supernatural God, which has an amazing prophetic accuracy record, proving that he is outside our Time and Space.

 Finally, if you don't quite understand why God is doing something either in the world or in your life, it could be that you are not following his timeline, within the lunar calendar.

Happy Real Resurrection Day!!!

Did you know that today is the 1988th anniversary of the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior? The first Resurrection Day was the actual day of the Feast of First Fruits. As a side note, Feast of First Fruits always lands on the day, after the Shabbat, after  Pesach / Passover, which is always Sunday.

The first crucifixion day was on a Wednesday. By the way, there is no such thing as Good Friday, which was created by way of tradition and pagan observation. I will not go into that, in this post. Three days later, sometime after 6pm, on Saturday, Y'shua/Jesus rose from the grave. Remember, after 6pm, it would have been Sunday, the start of the Feast of First Fruits.

Praise God!

"Let The Rock That Was Rolled Away, Be My Cornerstone."

Y'shua/Jesus Died, Of A Broken Heart, 1988 Years Ago, Today.

Did you know that Today, at 8am EST, marks the 1988 anniversary of when the Roman soldiers found that Y'shua/Jesus was dead upon the cross. It was approximately 2-3pm, Jerusalem time, when the order came down for the soldiers to break the legs of Y'shua/Jesus and the two thieves. However, when they came upon Y'shua/Jesus, he was already dead. They pierced his side, with a spear, to ensure his death.

When they pierced his side, water flowed, indicating that his heart had ruptured. Modern pathologists indicate that this proves that Y'shua/Jesus died of a broken heart. They ended up not breaking his legs, fulfilling the Pesach/Passover Lamb Commandment found in Exodus 12:46, Numbers 9:12 and the Prophecy in Psalm 34:20.

Between 3-6pm, Y'shua/Jesus was laid to rest, in the grave of Joseph of Arimathea, as prophesied in Isaiah 53:9. Passover began at 6pm, sunset, on that day.

Other times of this observance:

San Franciso 7am-10am
Washington 8am-11am
London 1pm-4pm
Berlin 2pm-5pm
Moscow 4pm-7pm
Bejing 8pm-11pm
Tokyo 9pm-11pm
Sidney 12am-3am

Daniel 9 and Zechariah 9: Precision, At It's Finest.

Did you know that, also, on the 10th of Nisan, 5777, on the Hebrew calendar, there was a fulfillment, of a Biblical Prophecy, that is so amazingly precise, so mind-boggling, that most teachers refuse to put it into their sermons?

As previously posted, this was the day that Y'shua / Jesus, allowed himself to be presented, for the first time, as the Messiah. As he rode in to Jerusalem, on the back of a mule, only a few recognized it as an exact day fulfillment of prophecy, foretold, by Daniel and Zechariah, both between 500-600 years before the time of Y'shua/Jesus.

In Daniel 9, verse 25, it states that there will be 483 years, from the commandment to rebuild Jerusalem, after the Babylonian captivity, to when the Messiah would come. According to both Biblical and non-biblical sources, it was 483 years, to the day, from the commandment by the Persian king, Cyrus the Great, to rebuild Jerusalem and the walls, until the first time Y'shua / Jesus allowed himself to be presented, as Messiah, the King, at the gates of Jerusalem.

"Know, therefore, and discern that seven weeks [of years] will elapse between the issuing of the decree to restore and rebuild Yerushalayim until an anointed prince comes."

Of course, Y'shua / Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a colt, a foal of a donkey, just as Zechariah 9 said.

“Behold, your King is coming to you…lowly and riding on a donkey, a colt, the foal of a donkey ”

Happy 1988th Anniversary!

Did you know today is the 10th of Nisan, the 1988th anniversary of the Triumphal Entry?

If historians are correct, Y'shua / Jesus made his triumphal and last entry into Jerusalem, the week of his crucifixion, 1988 years ago today.

Also, on this day, the high priests were presenting the lambs, to God, for the Passover Sacrifice. At the same time, God was presenting the ultimate Passover Lamb, in Y'shua / Jesus, to the world.

Are We Real Or Just An Illusion?

Did you know that our universe is just an illusion?

In 2013, Quantum Physicists supposedly proved that our reality is but a subset of the true reality. What does that mean? It means that our four dimensional reality is but a shadow of a higher dimension.

A great example is the two dimensional shadow, which is cast, by our three dimensional bodies, onto the ground, when standing in the light.

Our reality is the shadow of a higher dimensional reality.

Now, let's look at the Scriptures and look at how they portray our existence.

Psalm 91:1

"Those who dwell, in the shelter of the Most High, abides in the shadow of Shaddai, the Almighty."

Psalm 144:4

"Man resembles a breath in his days, a shadow that passes away."

Hebrews 8:5

"Who serves as the example and shadow of heavenly things…"

Well, as always, science continues to prove the Bible correct.

Where are those, who ridicule Bible readers, that take the Bible literally, now?

In the past, we were ridiculed by non-literalist, atheist and nonbelievers alike. Even some literalists have to step back and re-examine the fact, that they haven't taken the scriptures, literally enough. 

In order to anchor yourselves, to reality, God has set up his Word to be interpreted literally first and foremost, before going into the levels of metaphoric, symbolic and so on. God continues to prove his Word above and before all.

Finally, this is also another great representation of how Y'shua, the Son of Man was a shadow of God existence, on this earth. Now, we, along with Y'shua, as Sons of God, continue to be the true "shadow" and proof, that God exists.
