The Day of ATONEMENT and So Much More

14 Sep

atonement artJesus said, “I and my Father are at one” (John 10:30). This means they are At-one-ment. Because Christ is AT ONE with Father, it is where all of us should strive to be.

Back in the day, lambs were used as a sin offering, to atone for man’s sins. Only unblemished lambs were chosen as the offering. To them, offering a prize lamb was a sacrifice, because it was valued; and just might have been worth its weight in gold to the tribe. This was part of man’s evolution into spirit, because once he learned “the animal” needed to be sacrificed, he would come to understand that he would have to sacrifice himself, specifically his animal-side – his selfish egotistical, clever, greedy, take-care-of-me-and-mine self. Once he could do this, man would operate as spirit in this world – be in it, but not of it.

Jesus demonstrated this evolution; and once this lesson was taught, man no longer needed to perform animal sacrifice as a sin offering. This was the only part of God’s LAW that changed. Daily we must learn to sacrifice these animal bodies that carry our spirits around. They are vehicles that tie us to this world. They physically get us from Point A to Point B; and hopefully we can control them, to get us from a spiritual Point A to B. These vehicles need to be taken care of, given proper fuel and maintenance. They house the light of our spirits. Yet, many spirits become their bodies (or their animals).

Words of Wisdom – Exalt not thyself, lest thou fall, and bring dishonour upon thy soul, and so God uncover thy secrets, and cast thee down in the midst of the congregation, because thou camest not in truth to the fear of the Lord, but thy heart is full of deceit. My son, if thou come to serve the Lord, prepare thy soul for temptation. Set thy heart aright, and constantly endure, and make not haste in time of trouble. Cleave unto Him, and depart not away, that thou mayest be increased at thy last end (Wisdom 1:30-2:3).”

It’s no secret that these are the times of Noah, and as in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah. How ashamed are the spirits going to be, when they realize that they, as fallen angels, have succumbed to being animals – and do very animalistic things? When the world is called into Judgment, does one think his or her abominations (e.g. bestiality) is going to stay covered? No, God said He would uncover all secrets, because He knows the secrets of our hearts and minds. If one is paying attention to the news, even the mainstream, skirts are being lifted – from the crimes of the Vatican to Occults; from political kings to actual Monarchs; from members of the Synagogue of Satan to his entertainment industry lackeys. They think their skirts, or coverings, hide their nakedness, but it WILL BE discovered and shown (Nahum 3:5).

Tony Farrell with ShofarInterestingly, a little over a year ago, whistleblower and ex-principal intelligence analyst Tony Farrell went on a mission concerning the South Yorkshire Police in England. He even blew a trumpet/shofar inside and outside their building (walls), asking Father to bring down the walls of silence and corruption, similar to what Joshua did at Jericho. Currently, it looks like South Yorkshire Police are standing on shaky ground. Farrell’s hope and prayer is that they will finally fight the good-fight, instead of siding with an evil corrupt system. How much can they trust Satan/Lucifer and his hoodlums (all those secret brotherhoods), when God has been called to intervene? There are too many reasons to list why South Yorkshire Police are in the hot seat, but know that they are. As for the Guardian Angels watching us, perhaps the Koran says it best, “What! Have they settled some Plan (among themselves)? But it is We Who settle things. Or do they think that We hear not their secrets and their private counsels? Indeed (We do), and Our Messengers are by them, to record (Sura 43:79-80).” An update on Farrell’s case will be posted on the previous article concerning him, entitled Tony Farrell – From Whistleblower to Disciple?. And another article is up-coming on measures he has taken in his march around “Jericho”.

Let’s get back to each individual – each individual spirit. What does his or her record look like? On the Gregorian calendar, many people set New Year’s Day as a day of resolutions, and many of these deal with the human body. Concerning the spirit, the seventh month may be a better month to make adjustments, as needed, because within it are the blowing of trumpets, the DAY OF ATONEMENT, and the Feast/Fast of the Tabernacles. The Bible designates the first day of the seventh month as a holy Sabbath and a day to blow the trumpets (Lev. 23:24). It is a day when we are to offer an offering made by fire unto the “I AM”. Because the human-animal body replaced the animal sacrifice, this can be translated into the human + being fasting, where the stored fat of our human body is burned. It is toxic to us. This means fasting from sunset on the last day of the sixth month to sunset of the first day of the seventh. Of course, it doesn’t mean becoming a pig once the sun goes down, because the point was to NOT be an animal in the first place.

Gandhi recognized the importance of fasting and gained spiritual insight.

Ramadan is a month of fasting for Muslims, yet many gain weight during this time instead of burning-off extra fat. This is because during the covering of darkness they eat more than they normally would; yet the “I AM” sees all. Eating in the dark doesn’t hide the fact that some are gorging when the sun goes down and before it comes up. According to JAH, who is also known as Muad’Dib, Ramadan was to prepare Muslims for a 40-day fast to help them overcome the animal body. JAH understands the importance of fasting. In 1988, he fasted for 65-days during a hunger strike. Muslims also religiously pray five times a day, yet JAH said this was to prepare them for prayer 24-hours a day. Again, it is about man’s evolution. Praying five times a day would get them used to thinking about the “I AM”, instead of the idols set up in Mecca. JAH said by now they should be in constant prayer/communication with the “I AM”. He also stated that Muslims should be facing Mount Moriah, as instructed by Mohammed (PBUH). A more in-depth explanation can be found on his website, sourced below.

As for Christians, they’ve managed to also turn fast days into feasting. Yet, a careful look at Leviticus describes exactly what the body goes through during a fast – the fat that covers the inwards (the belly fat and the fat between the ears) is burned, the backbone is exposed and indentations form where the kidneys lie. JAH said that a person would not fill a backpack with 20 pounds of bricks and carry it around continuously, yet that’s really what is happening when someone carries around extra weight. It’s a burden. It puts undue stress on the vital-organs and prematurely wears-out the hip and knee joints, causes back-problems, diabetes and heart-attacks, etc. The spirit should decide what and when to feed the body, not let the animal decide for its “Self”. Again, these fasts were to eventually prepare men for a 40-day fast.

“Also on the tenth [day] of this seventh month [there shall be] a Day of Atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the “I AM” (Lev. 23:27). It [shall be] unto you a Sabbath of rest, and ye shall afflict your souls: in the ninth [day] of the month at evening, from evening unto evening, shall ye celebrate your Sabbath (Lev. 23:32).” This again translates to mean fasting from sunset to sunset. According to the Enochian Calendar discussed in the Hold Fast – Feast or Famine and the Passover article, the first day of the seventh month is September 16; and is the day of trumpets. The Day of Atonement would be September 25th, followed by the Feast/Fast of the Tabernacles Sept. 30 –Oct. 7. [The Enochian Calendar is solar, while many so-called religious calendars are lunar].

The Day of Atonement is a Holy Sabbath. Just like the first Passover foreshadowed the second Passover, the Day of Atonement foreshadows final atonement as demonstrated by Jesus The Christ, who was AT-ONE with Father. The Feast/Fast of the Tabernacles represents the Gathering, or the final Harvest. It is a time to fast, reflect, and remember your vows to Father, maybe it is a time to re-establishment them and be at one with Him – in Unison or union. If one is attuned with Father, one is not off running amuck in Satan’s world. Once, the phrase “What would Jesus do” or “WWJD” was popular, but wasn’t it just a fad-phrase and not a way of life? Would Jesus be filling his Sabbaths with football games, shopping, drunkenness and fornication? Would He be logging on to view abominations in the wee hours of the night? No. One must resist all temptation to “be” as Satan/Lucifer would have one be. A man isn’t predisposed to want sexual intercourse with a boy, yet that’s exactly what Satan keeps whispering in the ears of men who do such things; and they are so far gone in his illusion that they think that voice is theirs and they must “be” that way. Knowing this, one can see how weak-minded those who get caught up in the degrees of pyramids really are. And unfortunately, it is these weak-minded individuals who get caught up in positions of power.

Aesop said: “we hang petty-thieves/criminals and appoint the great ones to public [high] office.” Paul spoke about this in Ephesians 6:12 where he referred to spiritual wickedness in high places.

Who are you listening to?

Who are you listening to?

Do not be weak-minded. Satan knows exactly how to tempt each and every person. That’s why the fear of God is good. He has the power to put each soul into Hell-fire for eternity. Thus, it’s best to have the fear of God, atone for sins, long for a union with God, search for it and stand your ground – no matter what theatre Satan/Lucifer puts into your head. During the Feast/Fast of Tabernacles, think about getting back to nature, away from city/market/mammon life. Be mindful in memorial days to think about how important it is to atone for your sins. It represents the final chance for atonement before the final Harvest. Today, people think it’s acceptable to use the Lord’s name in vain, lie, steal, or commit adultery. Seriously, there are people committing adultery against their spouses, and they think they will be forgiven for being so weak and Heaven still awaits them. News flash. The Law says DO NOT COMMIT ADULTERY. Don’t try to disguise or make excuses and redefine what adultery means, by using the words “having an affair”. It is NOT “an affair”, it IS adultery and adultery, like sodomy, carries the death-penalty. Likewise sodomites are sodomites, NOT gay. Make no mistake, The Law is very clear. There is no “however” or “but” after that commandment; not even the excuse that it’s the other spouse’s fault or sodomites were born that way. In the end, you are cheating yourself out of redemption.

“Behold, all souls are Mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is Mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall DIE. (Ezekiel 18:4).”

Prove you can keep The Law. If you know others who are cheating (having an affair) and accept their behavior, then you are actually putting your stamp of approval on it, which is also against The Law. Who cares what excuse they give you – they’ll just be regurgitating what Satan’s convinced them the reason is anyway. It’s against God’s Law and have no part in it, even as a confidant of the guilty.

This brings up the marriage-contract we have with God, which is discussed in The Great Mystery: Marriage Guidance, sourced below. We entered a Covenant/contract with Him at Mount Sinai, along with Moses. Instead of the Law being passed down verbally, and forgotten; God gave it to us in writing. Keeping these vows is our marriage-contract. Thus, the nation Israel was His bride, which is discussed repeatedly in the Bible. And, as a nation, we have committed adultery against the “I AM” by breaking all our vows. In these times of Noah, Sodom and Gomorrah, there is no need for an explanation. According to JAH’s article on The Only Way to Defeat the New World Order, he said the Covenant oaths and Law were to serve as the schoolmaster to help bring men to Christ; and the Bible was to serve as a reference guide. This is why the Sabbath was set aside, so that individuals could study and know The Law by heart, without the distractions present on work days. The Sabbaths were a time to restore the AT-ONE-ness with God. This TIME is an OFFERING to God, to be in tune with Him. For some, this tuning is very real and they hear the signs.

In Benjamin Freedman Speaks: A Jewish Defector Warns America, Freedman revealed that the Talmud defines the Day of Atonement as something completely different from God’s Way. In the section entitled Kol Nidre: Evidence of Disloyalty, he asked, “Do you know what Jews do on the Day of Atonement?” He is of course, speaking of the Jews who follow the Talmud instead of the Torah. Being one of these Jews himself, he said they stand up and the very first prayer they recite on the Day of Atonement is the Kol Nidre, which is a prayer that any oath, vow or pledge that is made during the next twelve months shall be null and void. All vows will have no effect. If this is true, it would make them liars and backstabbers in all their entered “contracts” wouldn’t it? It might be best to have discernment before entering a contract with someone who follows such teachings, like voting for politicians who never keep their election-promises, or their oaths of office.
The New Song
Many believe that because Jesus came to be the atonement for our sins that everything we do is already forgiven. It might be best to really study the Bible. He certainly showed us that At-one-ment was possible, but it does require something on our part. When He came, He was the sin offering for our PAST sins. As eternal beings (fallen angels) we’ve generated over and over again and our scorecard or record up until the time of His Coming looked pretty grim. But through Christ, we got a New Covenant. “Whom God hath fore-ordained [to be] an atonement through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins THAT ARE PAST, through the forbearance of God (Romans 3:25).” Our scorecard/record has now grown into something so wicked that we don’t even see it, because for generations, we have been gradually brain-washed and deceived into seeing it as standard operating procedure.

He was the atonement of sins for the whole of the world, but there’s more to that knowledge. In 1 John 2:3-6, it is written, “And hereby we do know that we know him, IF we keep His Commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth NOT His Commandments, is a LIAR, and the truth is NOT in him. But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.” This should put the phrase “What would Jesus Do (WWJD)” into perspective. The Bible says all LIARS go into The Fire for eternity. As far as God’s Law goes, Jesus probably said it as plainly as He could, “Think not that I am come to destroy The Law, or the Prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill (Matt. 5:17).” In the Greek original it says “pleroo” which means “to fully preach” [The Law] not fulfill. One cannot just say they “believe” in Jesus and think they are saved. They must DO what He said. He, like the prophets before Him, warned mankind to reinstate The Law – God’s Law. Yet man continues to pass his own legislation, bypassing all that is considered holy and good, by our Creator. Man’s legislation is a heavy burden and a yoke that binds him. That’s exactly what it was set up to do. And it will continue and get worse, because man simply accepts whatever legislation is passed in a system fueled by the Synagogue of Satan. What’s worse is Satan wants world war and all of you dead; and unfortunately the Bible has prophesied WW3. Are you ready? It looks to be the only option to wake everyone up.

Instead of thinking about the animal body’s survival, it would be best to think about the soul’s survival. The seventh month is a good time to do it. Sound a trumpet over your being and call on God’s help; atone for your sins; and fast as the Bible instructs, to celebrate that you are MORE than an animal. You should have already gathered a war is coming and been prepared. This may mean KNOWING how to get your animal body from point A to B. Do you have a plan for that? It’s best to have one or two options in place, than to fly by the seat of your pants. As long as you are calmly listening to Father, He will guide you. Again, it’s essential to walk without fear, save only the fear of God. If Satan still continues to control you with fear thoughts – with the ones he knows specifically work on you – then take the seventh month to throw off his yoke.

“Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke [is] easy, and my burden is light (Matt. 11:28-30).”

God’s warriors won’t be hiding in closets, under a bed or table. They’ll be washing their garments in the blood/truth of the Lamb. They’ll be putting on the Full Armour of God, as described in Ephesians: “Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with Truth, and having on the Breastplate of Righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the Shield of Faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the Helmet of Salvation, and the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God: Praying constantly (without ceasing) with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all holy people (Eph. 6:14-18).”

According to The Road to Emmaus contained in the King of kings’ Bible at the end of the Gospel of Luke, “Judah has called upon his head the transgressions of all the tribes called Gentiles, for it has claimed, unto itself, the blessings which are the heritage of all. By reason of its falsehoods Judah and all at one with the spirit of mammon (materialism), have to endure all the sorrows they prepared for others and go through tribulations that know no bounds, until the last of God’s Elect shall pass the great test.” [There is more to that story that relates to today’s time; and it is sourced below].

You might ask yourself, are you passing any tests, or are you failing them? We are talking Life and Death here, as Moses clearly stated:

Deuteronomy
30:15 See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;
30:16 In that I command thee this day to love the “I AM” thy God, to walk in His Ways, and to keep His Commandments and His Statutes and His Judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the “I AM” thy God shall bless thee in the land where thou goest to possess it.
30:17 But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them;
30:18 I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, [and that] ye shall not prolong [your] days upon the land, where thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it.
30:19 I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, [that] I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
30:20 That thou mayest love the “I AM” thy God, [and] that thou mayest obey His voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto Him: for He [is] thy Life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the “I AM” sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob/Israel, to give them.

If you haven’t been motivated; think about these two options and choose Life. Jesus said to return to God’s Law. Believe Him. By the way, JAH is saying to return to God’s Law. “Remember ye and return to The Law of Moses My servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, [with] the Statutes and Judgments. Behold, I will send you Eli-JAH the Prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful Day of the “I AM” (see Sura 43:61): And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse (Malachi 4:4-6).”

HOLD FAST – Feast or Famine and the Passover

17 Mar

[This article is a modern-day view of the Passover, the Feast of the Weeks, the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the Day of Atonement, and the Feast of the Tabernacles, and their meanings.]

With Spring and the New Year upon us, our first Holy Fast Days approach. Many might not realize instead of “feasting” they should be fasting. This is because humans like to eat and don’t like “to be told” not to eat. Yet, the Bible says to hold fasts. The fasts were about feasting, but centuries later, people have redefined the word to mean eating large meals, holding banquets and buffets. Back in the day, they did make large meals during the Holy Feasts, because no one within their gates was to go hungry. This symbolically meant everyone was fed, with the Word too. A sacrificed lamb fed a large number of people his or her portion, not just a family of four. Now, a small number of people eat a large amount of food; and think that it is not only an honor, but also a God-given right.

As gluttony is a deadly sin, it’s not likely to be a right-of-passage to the Hereafter. Many within our gates, or world, go hungry. But the sad reality is that the whole world is starving for the Truth, the Word. So many people dish out their versions of the Holy Feast Days, which include buying a bunny-suit and playing Peter Rabbit. Inspired by the clergy, man has continued to replace the first Holy Days with something called Easter, honoring the fertility goddess Ishtar/Easter. No one can say, “No, no, it doesn’t mean that” and continue to hop down the bunny trail. If one is “buying into” Easter, he is selling-out. If people buy Easter-baskets, play along with egg-hunts, buy Easter dresses, buy Easter lilies, buy greeting cards, buy chocolate bunnies and Ishtar-eggs (eggs are a sign of fertility – no eggs – no babies), buy a Ham, buy all the side dishes; and partake, then they’ve technically bought into the market system which was designed to be a transfer of money and destroy our physical world, buy-consuming it. Spiritually, it was designed to get everyone to move away from God, and destroy them. What do bunnies and eggs have to do with The Crucifixion? Absolutely nothing! You’ve all been deceived, by the clergy, into worshipping Ishtar, instead of God.

SING HIS SONG

The Holy Fast Days were about being solemn and reading, feasting on, and digesting the Word of God, His Law; “Therefore go thou, and read in the scroll, which thou hast written from my mouth, the words of the “I AM” in the ears of the people in the “I AM”’s House upon the fasting day: and also thou shalt read them in the ears of all Judah that come out of their cities (Jeremiah 36:6).” This scroll told them to return to The Law, contained in the Torah. Read Deuteronomy, which means the study of God’s Law. We should know this Law by heart. It is the Passover Song, which Jesus read after the Last Supper, before they left the upper room, “And when they had sung a Passover song, they went out into the Mount of Olives (Matt. 26:30).” Moses also read it aloud. The Bible talks a lot about the Law as the Song and you can’t sing a song unless you KNOW all of the words. In fact, it’s the first part of the New Song of Revelation (Rev. 14:3); combined with the Song of the Lamb – the Law of the Lamb. Their harmony creates the New Song; because Christ, as well as His teachings, added two verses: love everyone as He has loved us, and judge no one, except law-breakers, by God’s Judgements that are written in The Law. The Law is actually explained in detail over and over throughout the Bible. “Sing unto the ‘I AM’ the ‘New Song’, [and] His praise from the ‘end of the earth’, ye that go down to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof (Isaiah 42:10).” The Holy Fast Days should be set aside to study God’s Law and pray; “And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; [Even] the Spirit of Truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I Live, ye shall live also. At that day ye shall know that I [am] in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you (John 14:16-20).”

There is no reason to “Hold Fast” if the weightier matters of the Law are to be ignored. If someone picks and chooses which Laws he wants to obey, like they are a buffet of choice, and are based on his personal likes and dislikes, then he is missing the point of “KEEP, DO, and OBEY ALL GOD’S LAWS”. And keeping them requires Will-Power. Picking a select few and disregarding the rest still leads to Hellfire. The Bible says if one loves God above all else, he is incapable of breaking the Laws – this requires careful study, because if one breaks all the Laws and claims he loves God above all others, is he being truthful? Remember this Commandment – Thou shall not lie. This means even to one’s self.

The Holy Feast Days take us through all the days of our lives, which include affliction, redemption, sowing, growing and harvest, then burning the chaff and fruitless vines; and everything made anew again after all evil is destroyed. First came Passover with the crucifixion of Jesus, the Lamb without blemish, which replaced animal sacrifice with that of self-sacrifice, which is the daily control of your spirit over the self. The Feast of Unleavened Bread was to be performed to remember our days of affliction, slavery and oppression. The Bread of Affliction is the Unleavened Bread eaten for the evening meal during fasting, maybe with a small amount of stew. It isn’t just unleavened bread or crackers to lay on top of a pile of food. We don’t really remember affliction and those days are coming around again, if one has taken notice. Leaven is yeast, and all rising agents are not yeast. Yeast infects the flour and changes its being/character, and spreads throughout the dough. Yeast makes bread puffed-up and is symbolic of the sin of the self being puffed-up with pride and arrogance; “Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the politicians and of those that deny the Hereafter (Matt. 16:6).” During the Feast of Unleavened Bread, we were to remain free of leaven, or symbolically free of sin. This is what Jesus Christ’s sacrifice meant. His sacrifice washed our past sins away, but we’ve racked them up again since then, when we were allowed to start eating leavened bread, or sinning. There was once a time of great celebration, because of redemption through Jesus. Yet, these last generations have grown wicked, because we didn’t keep the Laws Jesus reinstated.

JESUS AS OUR WAVE OFFERING

Not only did Jesus replace animal sacrifice, He also became the Wave Offering, the Drink Offering and the Firstfruit. He was the first sheaf of barley offered to God; and could give new meaning to this scripture, “Seven weeks shalt thou number unto thee: begin to number the seven weeks from [such time as] thou beginnest [to put] the sickle to the corn (Deut. 16:9).” Christ is the Bread of Life and Without Sin, Unleavened – humble. He remains the first sheaf offered to God, waved. As the Lamb, He was slaughtered. As the perfect sheaf, He was symbolically hewn down with a sickle – CUT OFF – “And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be CUT OFF, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and The Sanctuary; and the end thereof [shall be] with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined (Daniel 9:26).” We crucified Jesus on Passover Day, the 14th Day of the First Month of Spring. His crucifixion was the Second Passover as He was the Lamb that was killed and His blood covered and paid for our previous sins. “And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth me shall never thirst (John 6:35).” We no longer live in an agricultural environment; and cannot truly offer real firstfruits, we offer ourselves, just as Christ offered His self.

THE FEAST OF WEEKS

Jesus became the Wave Offering and the Drink Offering. These offerings were described in Leviticus as something we were to do when we came into our promised land – when we got settled. And we were established when Jesus entered Jerusalem; just like we are established now. The First Feast of Firstfruits would run concurrently with the Day of Unleavened Bread and Feast of Unleavened Bread. “Now the Feast of Unleavened Bread drew nigh, which is called the Passover (Luke 22:1). Then came the day of Unleavened Bread, when the Passover lamb must be killed. And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the Passover, that we may eat. And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare? And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house, The Master saith unto thee, Where is the guestchamber, where I shall eat the Passover with my disciples? (Luke 22:7-11).” This meal is described in the Old Covenant as appropriately one with flour, but not leaven. “And the meat offering thereof [shall be] two tenth deals of fine flour mingled with oil, an offering made by fire unto the “I AM” [for] a sweet savour: and the drink offering thereof [shall be] of wine, the fourth [part] of an hin. (Lev. 23:13).” When the observance of the 50-day Feast of Weeks is over, there is a Feast Day from the second harvest, which includes leaven. “Ye shall bring out of your habitations two wave loaves of two tenth deals: they shall be of fine flour; they shall be baken with leaven; [they are] the firstfruits unto the “I AM” (Lev. 23:17).” This would represent the gathering that was done by those who spread Christ’s message. Again, if we miss the spiritual point of offering up ourselves, then it’s unlikely we’ll do anything correctly. The Feast of the Weeks time is about rejoicing because of Jesus’ sacrifice, as the Second Passover Lamb. We were to go plant seeds and spread His message of keeping the Laws of God. We were supposed to do this until the final harvest.

There would be no point in creating FEAST or MEMORIAL days, if there was nothing special we needed to do in them. We must sacrifice in them. We must fast. God is reprimanding us for choosing our own days to fast, and while fasting can be a free-will offering outside of specific dates from God to fast, we weren’t supposed to delete and move these specific dates to suit ourselves, “Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? [is it] to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes [under him]? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the ‘I AM’? (Isaiah 58:5).” Feast Days are Sabbaths and some are set aside to include no work. Feast Days are treated separately from the rest of our days. Weekly Sabbaths occur every seven days, “Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day [is] the Sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work [therein]: it [is] the Sabbath of the ‘I AM’ in all your dwellings (Lev. 23:3)” Then, God made other special ones such as the Passover. And a day is counted from sunset to sunset. “And God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. And the evening and the morning were the First Day (Genesis 1:5).” The morrow of a day is the morning, daylight hours. Passover begins at sunset on the 13th, because that is when the 14th actually begins.

We shouldn’t have changed the appointed days of fasting and humility. God clearly identifies that there are acceptable days to fast, and He told us what those were. God continues in “Isaiah 58:6-7: [Is] not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? [Is it] not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?”

God also said false prophets would change them. The clergy of today still call out their own Fast Days from tradition and convenience. These have nothing to do with fasting anymore, but are slathered in feasting, by the modern-day definition of the word. The ones today, as well as for centuries, have been for show, and to increase the borders of their garments. Maybe this is why robes come in handy. Everyone is still going along with what was set up by Babylon and Rome, which is why terms like Babylon, Sodom and Gomorrah are used to describe today’s culture in Bible prophecy. “Then the ‘I AM’ said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in My name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spoke unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart. Therefore thus saith the ‘I AM’ concerning the prophets that prophesy in My name, and I sent them not, yet they say, Sword and famine shall not be in this land; By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed (Jer. 14:14-15).”

FASTING AS A FORM OF SELF-SACRIFICE

Because self-sacrifice replaced animal sacrifice, the human body is the “meat” of our self-sacrifice. We are the meat offerings. This has nothing to do with killing the human body; but has everything to do with controlling it, and daily crucifying the human-selfish side, which is controlled by Satan. An offering made by fire is fasting. Fasting burns off fat and burns out the self of the human body. Thus, when the Bible says to give an offering made by fire it means fast, like in “Lev. 23:8: But ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the “I AM” seven days: in the seventh day [is] an holy convocation: ye shall do no servile work [therein].” When Jesus fasted for 40 days and nights, he was tempted by Satan. Satan came in as a voice in Jesus’ head. Christ Jesus recognized it and rebuked him. This is what we must do. We must follow Christ’s Example in all ways. Satan could have made Jesus king of “his Babylonian Jerusalem, laced in Talmudic traditions”, simply by going into the crowds and whispering in their ears, “this is your guy.” Well, we know that didn’t happen. Jesus rejected Satan’s temptations; and did not switch to the dark side, to be handed a position of worldly-power and to live lavishly. Jesus instead held fast and listened to Father – the other voice, the quiet one, in His body’s head and trusted it. As far as the masses go in Jerusalem, they listened to an angered Satan (whose name is really Lucifer), who whispered, “hate this man, he is your enemy, and a blasphemer!” To the clergy, Satan said, “kill him, and take his inheritance.” And they plotted and planned. Jesus planned too, and planted some seeds, picking His own firstfruits, the disciples, and later giving them wisdom and understanding with the Holy Spirit – The Comforter.

Jesus was also the firstfruit of the Autumn harvest, “But now is Christ risen from the dead, [and] become the firstfruits of them that slept (1 Corin. 15:20).” This harvest began when He was picked from Father’s vineyard, and became the Vine of Life, “Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up his spirit. And, behold, the “Temple Veil” (to the “Holy of Holies”) was torn in two from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; (Matt. 27:50).” The harvest was completed when Christ was taken up, by the Chariot of God, hidden in a “Cloud”. His disciples became the chosen branches of His vine, that would go on to bear fruit, “And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the holy ones which slept arose, and came out of the graves after his spirit had been raised up to God, and went into the Holy City, and appeared unto many (Matt. 27:52-53).” The disciples were no longer dead, sleep-walking as human animals. They sacrificed their self-lives by spreading Christ’s message, planting seeds and producing more fruit, “And not only [they], but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, [to wit], the redemption of our body (Romans 8:23).” But back in the day, the first-born Israelites coming out of Egypt with Moses were the firstfruits. “And every firstling of an ass thou shalt redeem with a lamb; and if thou wilt not redeem it, then thou shalt break his neck: and all the firstborn of man among thy children shalt thou redeem (Exodus 13:13).”

THE FEASTS OF THE TABERNACLES

Just as the first Passover foreshadowed the Second, even down to the lamb’s bones not being broken as it was to be burned whole, the Feast of Tabernacles, which was to be held in the seventh month, foreshadows the final wheat and grape harvest. This hasn’t occurred yet, but God set holy days aside to Observe and watch for it. When Jesus said that He would not drink of the fruit of the vine, until that day when He drinks it with His disciples in Father’s Kingdom (Matt. 26:29), He meant after this Final Harvest. Holy Days were remembered as long as men of God ruled the land. Christ was the Vine and we became the branches. And when the Chariot comes again, it won’t be hidden in a Cloud; but it will be the harvest time – the Reaping – the wheat will have separated from the tares/weeds, the ripe fruit picked, and those who have self-sacrificed redeemed, “And another angel came out of the Temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the “Cloud”, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for The Time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. “And I looked, and behold a white “Cloud”, and upon the “Cloud” [one] sat LIKE unto the Son of Man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. And he that sat on the “Cloud” thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped (Rev. 14:14-16).” What happens to the rest is the same thing that happens to weeds, and vines that don’t produce. “And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over “Fire”; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe. And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast [it] into the great winepress of the wrath of God (Rev. 14:18-19).”

ATONEMENT

We should hold fast until this happens. But this means purifying ourselves “washing our garments” and holding fasts. A person should know when he or she needs to do it as a free-will offering. Leviticus describes what happens to an animal when it is sacrificed and burned. ALL of the fat is burned off. This fat is impure and holds toxins; and should not be part of the meat offering to God. God has instructed us to burn off the fat. We do this by fasting, because our bodies have to use-up this reserve food that shouldn’t be stored as fat and taken along on our journey. When a body fasts, it reduces; and its blood reduces in volume. This blood spiritually represents the blood that marks the doorposts and lintel.

Waxed fat is wasted food, because the body doesn’t need it. This extra food should have been given to someone else, who had none. Once we were told to clean our plates, so there was no waste, because there were starving people in the world. It actually meant to be thankful for what we had, because we were blessed. It was also at a time when our meals were in appropriate portions; and no one really had seconds and thirds to clean up. Those times have changed, because we consider a meal to be good only if it’s large. Feasts could not have been about gluttony, because gluttony is a capital-offence – “And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son [is] stubborn and rebellious [against God], he will not obey our voice; [he is] a glutton, and a drunkard. And [if it be true] all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear. (Deut. 21:20-21)”, yet today that’s exactly what they are. If the prophets fasted for the atonement of sins and to hear God’s communication better, by weakening their human bodies (the self); fasting was a sacrifice – a demonstration, to gain favor from God. “But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily unto God: yea, let them turn every one from his evil way, and from the violence that [is] in their hands (Jonah 3:8). So we fasted and besought our God for this: and He was intreated by us. (Ezra 8:23).” After fasting Ezra recovered his ability to hear God’s voice, “And my soul recovered the spirit of Understanding, and I began to talk with The Most High again (2 Edras 5:22).”

Covered with sackcloth means covering oneself with humility:

PSALMS
35:11 False witnesses did rise up; they laid to my charge [things] that I knew not.
35:12 They rewarded me evil for good [to] the spoiling of my soul.
35:13 But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing [was] sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom.
35:14 I behaved myself as though [he had been] my friend [or] brother: I bowed down heavily, as one that mourneth [for his] mother.
109:21 But do Thou for me, O “I AM” the Lord, for Thy name’s sake: because Thy mercy [is] good, deliver Thou me.
109:22 For I [am] poor and needy, and my heart is wounded within me.
109:23 I am gone like the shadow when it declineth: I am tossed up and down as the locust.
109:24 My knees are weak through fasting; and my flesh faileth for lack of fatness.
109:25 I became also a reproach unto them: [when] they looked upon me they shaked their heads.
109:26 Help me, O “I AM” my God: O save me according to Thy mercy:

Jesus told us to fast, because we must weaken our human-side, and thus Satan’s hold on it, and us. He instructed us to fast from the world; and being an animal in it. He said that He is The Way we have to be to come home to Father, and the example we have to follow. The first thing He did was fast for forty days and forty nights and overcome His body and temptation from Satan. Jesus said to his disciples, “If you fast (ritually), you will beget sin for yourselves (Matt. 6), and if you pray (in churches), you will be condemned, and if you give alms (to the churches), you will do evil to your spirits. And if you go into any land and wander in the regions, if they receive you, eat what they set before you, heal the sick among them (Thomas 2:17).” Jesus continued, “For what goes into your mouth will not defile you, but what comes out of your mouth, that is what will defile you (Thomas 2:18).” When we don’t have control of ourselves, we speak for Satan, usually just regurgitating what he tells us to think and say. Jesus also said, “Woe to them, the politicians, for they are like a dog sleeping in the manger of oxen, for neither does he eat nor does he allow the oxen to eat. Blessed is the man who knows in which part of the night the robbers will come in, so that he will rise and collect his wits and gird up his loins before they come in. They said to Him: Come and let us pray today and let us fast. (Thomas 15:10-12).”

God outlined Feast Days, not because He thought they would be ones of gluttony, but ones of fasting – “For when I shall have brought them into the land which I sware unto their fathers, that floweth with milk and honey; and they shall have eaten and filled themselves, and waxen FAT; then will they turn unto other gods, and serve them, and provoke Me, and break My Covenant (Deut. 31:20).” To remove this important aspect of His feasts is doing the opposite of sacrificing the self. While exercise can be done to burn fat, it shouldn’t replace the Holy Feasts. In fact, it can take as much will power to fast, as it does to go to the gym daily. Besides, the Book of Enoch puts it this way; “Their spirits shall be full of SPORT, that they may be judged for their bodies (see 1 Tim. 3:8); because they have denied the Lord of spirits, and although they perceive their condemnation day by day, they believe not in His name. And as the swelling of their bodies (and ego) shall be great, so shall their spirits undergo a change for ever. For no word which is uttered before the Lord of Spirits shall be in vain (Isaiah 34:16). Judgement has come upon them, because they trusted in the SPORT of their bodies, and denied the Lord of Spirits (by so doing – see 1 Tim. 3:8) (Enoch 66:9-12).”

During Holy Feast Days, a fast was to be held from sunrise to sunset. After sunset an evening meal, a modest one, is given to the body, and to a hungry body it seems like a “feast”. And after fasting in the day, one becomes truly thankful for the modest “feast” meal come evening. And after several days, the thankfulness grows. One remembers affliction and one remembers grace – all before retiring to bed. Because the point is to burn fat and weaken the body, eating too many calories nullifies the demonstration. Getting up before sunrise in order to eat is also circumventing the demonstration of self-sacrifice. We shouldn’t eat until the daily sacrifice, of fasting, is complete or performed. “And ye shall eat neither bread, nor parched corn, nor green ears, until the selfsame day that ye have brought an offering unto your God: [it shall be] a Statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings (Lev. 23:14).”

God said we’d forget the Holy Days; and we have. Not only have we forgotten about fasting, we do not honor His true Sabbath, the seventh day. “Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day [is] the Sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work [therein]: it [is] the Sabbath of the “I AM” in all your dwellings (Lev. 23:3).” We are to stay in our dwelling and read His Word, sing His Song and teach it to others. In celebrating the Feasts, which were considered holy days, specific ones are set apart even more by including the aspect of no work, as indicated in the previous scripture, and are usually already a Sabbath. The first of the months should also be observed, like indicated with the seventh month and the blowing of trumpets, and the beginnings of our [months] or New Year’s Day (Numbers 10:10 and Deut. 12:1-2).

Sabbatical Calendar First Month of the New Year Spring 2014 with New Year’s Day March 17 and the first day of the month as March 18 – A Representation

New Year’s Day is March 17. The calendar presented with this article is based on the Holy Calendar given to Enoch, which sets the Sabbaths in their fixed places based on a solar year, because our months were supposed to be based on the sun, not new moons. It’s the difference in what the Hebrew word Chodesh (month) and Chadash (moon) mean. Setting Sabbaths by moons would change their fixed places – it was just a sneaky twist by some sneaky devils from days gone by, and the “traditions” they instilled in us. You will see that the two feast months line up perfectly with each other on Enoch’s Sabbatical Calendar. The real Druids, who were not pagans, but Levitical priests in exile in Ireland, knew the date and some of their knowledge also remains with us from days of old. Today, it has been relabeled as St. Patrick’s Day, and a new meaning assigned to it, just like they labeled Druid priests pagans. Sadly it has also, like Xmas, become a day of getting drunk, eating too much, committing adultery and sinning. God’s Kingdom moved to Ireland when Jeremiah planted Teia Tephi, there, after The Temple in Jerusalem’s second destruction. New Year’s Day is based on equal day time and equal night time in Jerusalem, which is the day before. It is not “calculated” in the calendar, but is used to set the Sabbath Days. Enoch’s calendar is also based on 12 months with 30 days each, plus inserted days between the seasons, and one to be examined (see Enoch, Chapter 71+). It would be a good idea to study for oneself when Sabbaths should be, instead of taking it for granted by the moon-talkers and sun-worshippers. A Sabbathical calendar can be separate from the civil calendar; and maybe both need to be on the wall.

For the Feast of the Tabernacles, we were supposed to get back to nature, away from city-life, just like we did when we entered the wilderness for forty years. The Bible talks about staying in booths during this time. Booths were tents. And in today’s time, one could have pitched a tent in their backyard and still can. The Feast of the Tabernacles falls in the seventh month. The first day of this month is the Blowing of Trumpets, which foreshadows the seventh trumpet of Revelation being blown. It is considered Holy, as is the tenth day – the Day of Atonement. This is a 24-hour fast from sunset to sunset, beginning at sunset on the ninth. This is then followed by a Feast beginning on the fifteenth.

DAY 10 DAY OF ATONEMENT – 24 Hour Fast

Also on the tenth [day] of this seventh month [there shall be] a Day of Atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the “I AM”. And ye shall do no work in that same day: for it [is] a Day of Atonement, to make an atonement for you before the “I AM” your God. For whatsoever soul [it be] that shall not be afflicted in that same day, he shall be cut off from among his people. And whatsoever soul [it be] that doeth any work in that same day, the same soul will I destroy from among his people. Ye shall do no manner of work: [it shall be] a Statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. It [shall be] unto you a Sabbath of rest, and ye shall afflict your souls: in the ninth [day] of the month at evening, from evening unto evening, shall ye celebrate your Sabbath (Lev. 23:27-32).” Symbolically, it represents a final chance to atone for one’s sins in the last days. We are living in them, if you know the signs. When asking JAH about the Feast Days and advice he could give, he said that he was sure that Father feels as the Lord does and said to study Isaiah 1:10-27:

Isaiah:
1:10 Hear the Word of the “I AM”, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the Law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.
1:11 To what purpose [is] the multitude of your sacrifices unto Me? saith the “I AM”: I am sick of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.
1:12 When ye come to appear before Me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread My courts?
1:13 Bring no more worthless oblations; incense is an abomination unto Me; the new moons and Sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot abide; [it is] grief, even the solemn meeting.
1:14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts My soul hateth: they are a trouble unto Me; I am weary to bear [them].
1:15 And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide Mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.
1:16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before Mine eyes; cease to do evil;
1:17 Learn to do well; seek Judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.
1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the “I AM”: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
1:19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:
1:20 But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the “I AM” hath spoken [it].
1:21 How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of Judgment; Righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.
1:22 Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water:
1:23 Thy princes [are] rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them.
1:24 Therefore saith the “I AM”, the Lord of hosts, the mighty One of Israel, Ah, I will ease Me of Mine adversaries, and avenge Me of Mine enemies:
1:25 And I will turn My hand upon thee, and purely purge away thy dross, and take away all thy tin [gods]:
1:26 And I will restore thy judges as at the first, and thy counsellors as at the beginning: afterward thou shalt be called, The City of Righteousness, the Faithful City.
1:27 Zion shall be redeemed with Judgment, and her converts with Righteousness.
and Matthew 23:23: Woe unto you, lawyers and politicians, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier [matters] of the Law, Judgment, Mercy, and Faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

JAH also noted that Jesus said, “With desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer: For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the Kingdom of God (Luke 22:15-16).” The last days are about bringing in Justice and these days there is none. There isn’t going to be any miraculous healings as before. If men were true men of God, they would be girded and fighting for Truth and Justice for all, as they were Commanded to do. You would think that if the clergy from Jerusalem’s evil past showed up again to steal Christ’s inheritance and ours, that we’d have enough experience to see it and have no part in it. Or if Hitler and his crew showed up again with ideas about a Fourth Reich, Roman-styled, New World Order and world army, we’d have no part in it. Then, you’d be thinking wrongly, because they’re back. Everyone reincarnates – until Judgement Day. It’s best to fast from Satan and his grand ideas.

If you want to observe the Passover and have missed these dates, please review:
Book of Numbers
9:8 And Moses said unto them, Stand still, and I will hear what the “I AM” will command concerning you.
9:9 And the “I AM” spoke unto Moses, saying,
9:10 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If any man of you or of your posterity shall be unclean by reason of a dead body, or [be] in a journey afar off, yet he shall keep The Passover unto the “I AM”.
9:11 The fourteenth day of the second month at even they shall keep it, [and] eat it with unleavened bread and bitter [herbs].
9:12 They shall leave none of it unto the morning, nor break any bone of it: according to all the Ordinances of The Passover they shall keep it.
