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).

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.

TRUE MEANING of the RESURRECTION

16 Mar

Before Jesus Christ was resurrected, He was sacrificed as the Lamb of God during the Second Passover to redeem God’s children from their death-sentence for breaking the Torah Covenant (contract) with God. To better understand the Second Passover, think about the First Passover. It foreshadowed Jesus’ mission to fulfill God’s Word. During the first Passover, the Angel of Death killed the first-born in every house in Egypt, including the pharaoh’s. However, the angel passed over the Israelite houses which had the blood of a sacrificed lamb painted around the door. And just as this blood saved the children, Christ would save an entire Israelite nation come His Second Passover.

The Israelites were the tribes of Israel, enslaved in Egypt under the evil rules of man. They were called Israelites because they were from the House of Israel, the descendents of Jacob’s 12 sons. God renamed Jacob “Israel” because he became a champion for God, and his children would be blessed. Even today, they are True Israel, a people, and not a country. The First Passover brought an end to 400 years of slavery and oppression. The Israelites were truly thankful and took a VOW to keep and do God’s Commandments given to Moses. Essentially, they entered a marriage contract to become His servant nation and draw the world into His perfect system.

But the years passed and instead of drawing people into Israel, they were lured away again to worship, or bow down, to the laws of men, who were very crafty individuals and who used the Jewish Talmud, instead of the Torah. For this adultery, they went into slavery again, but this time not by foreigners, but by their own rich and powerful elite. Once again, the Israelites needed to be freed again. This broken vow, or treason against God, brought them back under the death-sentence.

Christ’s mission was to be the sacrificial Lamb to redeem them. And like Abraham and Moses, He would lead the people back to God’s Word, showing The Way. They were asked to reject the evil politicians, priests and lawyers who enslaved them with man-made laws, doctrine and rituals, and return to God’s Law. They had to be like Him and keep and do God’s Commandments, as He was clearly demonstrating could be done, even in the face of the evil rulers. He was a Testament that all was possible with God. But instead of rejecting the evil men and their ways, they rejected Christ, and killed the body He was using.

The original Covenant came into being through Abraham, because he did not withhold his own miracle-son Isaac, in God’s test of his faith. And in order to save an entire nation from death, God would have to cancel the contract; and the only way to do that was to sacrifice His own miracle-Son. If the Israelites rejected the evil men and their ways and accepted Christ as High Priest and King of kings, the sacrifice wouldn’t have needed to be made. But God knew they would reject Him, as indicated by scripture and biblical teachings.

With the sacrifice of the Lamb of God, a New Contract came into being, a New Testament: Follow The Way, be like Jesus Christ, who followed all God’s Laws. Through Christ and His teachings, everyone should know how they should be, act, think, talk, and especially communicate with Father, alone, through the Holy Spirit.

You must stop your insurrection against God and Christ, and RESURRECT your spirit:

Rect – right; straight; rule
Sure – without doubt
Unsure-rection ) unsure of what/Who is right.
}
Insure-rection  ) fighting against what/Who is right.
Resure-rection – becoming sure again of what/Who is right

In order to do this, you must follow in the lines of the prophets until you ultimately become “like Christ”, being a spirit. Become like Abraham, a friend of God’s. Become like Isaac, gladly establish the Covenant with God. Become like Jacob and be a champion for God. Become like righteous Joseph, add unto God and spread His word. Become like Moses and be obedient to God. Continue until you learn to rectify your spirit. Your spirit connected to God should be making all decisions, not the “human animal” body connected to Satan.

Revelation 20: 6: Blessed and holy [is] he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be channels of God and of Christ (Gal. 1:10), and shall reign with him a thousand years. John 3:3: “Except a man be born again (as his spirit-Being, which is not human), he cannot see the Kingdom of God.”

On Christ’s Second Return, He will not be crucified for the nation; He will judge it. On His return, He will not heal; He will warn. On His return, He WILL become King of kings and High-Priest. God’s Word is and will be ever true.

Yes, the LAST POPE: It’s Time for TRUTH

16 Feb

The Vatican falling under the next pope is not only prophesied by the Irish prophet Malachy, but there are also Biblical references to it. And whoever the ruling pope is, whether he is behind the scenes, or out in front, he’s the last one.

His charade of being the “Holy Father” is up. Christ said to call NO ONE Father, except Father, the One in Heaven, Whom we are supposed to be listening to, instead of man-made impostors on Earth. The popes have always deceived man, but the man of sin will be revealed, because he opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped, so that he falsely sits as God, the Holy Father (2 Thessalonians).

Malachy prophesied: “In the final persecution of the holy Roman Church there will reign Peter the Roman, who will feed his flock amongst many tribulations; after which the Seven-hilled City (Rome) will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge (the Lord) will judge the people.”

When Christ (the Judge) returns, He will destroy Rome (the great Whore of Babylon/the Catholic Empire), and judge His people, as John prophesied in the Book of Revelation, Chapters 17-18.

Scripture WITH significant INTERPRETATION follows, from the King of kings’ Bible-

FROM THE BOOK OF REVELATION-
17:1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come here; I will show unto thee the Judgment of the great “Whore” that sitteth upon many “waters”:
17:2 With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.
17:3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
17:4 And the woman was arrayed in PURPLE (bishops) and SCARLET (cardinals) colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:
17:5 And upon her forehead [was] a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS (her daughters) AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
17:6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of her saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
17:7 And the angel said unto me, Why didst thou marvel? (Stop it!) I will tell thee the MYSTERY of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
17:8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the Bottomless Pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were NOT written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
17:9 And here [is] the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth (Rome).
17:10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, [and] the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.
17:11 And the beast that was, and is not, even it is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
17:12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
17:13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
17:14 These shall make war against the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him [are] called, and chosen, and faithful.
17:15 And he saith unto me, The “waters” which thou sawest, where the “Whore” sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
17:16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the “Whore”, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
17:17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil His Will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
17:18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great CITY, which reigneth over the kings of the earth (Rome).
18:1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was Lightened with his glory.
18:2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon (the City of Merchants – Market System) the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils (liars), and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
18:3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, COME OUT of her, MY people, that ye take not part in her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues (punishment).
18:5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her inequities.
18:6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled, fill to her double.
18:7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
18:8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong [is] the Lord God Who judgeth her.
18:9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
18:10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city (new) Babylon (Rome), that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
18:11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
18:12 The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and PURPLE, and silk, and SCARLET, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,
18:13 And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.
18:14 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.
18:15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
18:16 And saying, Alas, alas, that great city (Rome), that was clothed in fine linen, and PURPLE, and SCARLET, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!
18:17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
18:18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What [city is] like unto this great city!
18:19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.
18:20 Rejoice over her, [thou] heaven, and [ye] Holy Apostles and Prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
18:21 And a mighty angel took up a Stone like a great millstone, and cast [it] into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
18:22 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft [he be], shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;
18:23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations DECEIVED.
18:24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of holy people, and of all that were slain upon the earth.

The Catholic Empire has done so much evil unto the world, that it is incalculable: building a materialistic empire with man-made rituals, creating its own doctrine that contradicts the Holy Word; hoarding earthly treasures, causing mass poverty; Replacing God with a man (pope), leading followers into abominations to Father like bowing and praying to graven images and humans. This doesn’t even address the crimes of child rape, murder, sodomy, with the top echelon bowing down to Satan, while getting the masses to falsely believe they bow to God. The hoax will soon end.

CHRIST Shows Up At Your Door…

11 Jan

Christ comes to your door, rings the bell, and you answer, because you know it’s Him. After all, you invited Him many years ago and have expected His arrival. Humbly, He smiles at your motion to enter the house, taking the seat you offer with words of gratitude, because His journey to find your castle was long.

You ask about His journey. He thanks you for asking and replies that it has reminded Him of the first time He came to visit Earth and its inhabiters, but admits it seems much more difficult than before, because people are tired of hearing the Truth and hate it, especially the Truth about themselves. You respond that you’ve encountered that as well, from others. A moment of silence occurs… until you say, “Let me show You my home.”

Within the next half hour, you show Him the rooms of your house and comment on a few of your furnishings, and where you got them: a dresser from India; a rug from Persia; and a car from the late 1930s. You tell Him what a great deal they were. You even show Him an eagle you have carved in a log, using only a few hand-tools, and the Do-It-Yourself project of remodeling the kitchen. But you apologize that you haven’t removed the old scratched table to the curb, since you’ve bought a new one. The tour ends with you showing Him an antique Jesus painting that was practically a steal at a recent auction. Another moment of silence occurs, because you realize it doesn’t look at all like the Christ standing in front of you. Grabbing it with both hands you remove it from the wall, and place it on the floor. Christ goes one step further and turns it over, so that only the back of the frame is showing.

Awkwardly, you motion for Him to enter the dining room, because you’ve prepared a feast in His honor. Seeing the amount of food on the table, He asks, “Where are the other guests?” You smile proudly, because you’ve made everything for Him, and pull out the head chair for Him. He sits and says that He’ll place what His body needs on the plate, disappointing you that He didn’t sample your “famous” barbeque pork, and home-made cinnamon-raisin bread. In fact, you notice He takes only a small portion, yet finishes every morsel down to scraping the plate. He reminds you that He uses the diet outlined from Father in Deuteronomy. He explains the blood and fat of animals carries toxins, which can make the body sick, and that certain animals are unclean and should be avoided as food, for the same reason. He put only what He needed to fuel the body on the plate and ate all of it, because He also explains overeating is and/or wasting food is sinful, because others are going without. Feeding the body more than it needs strengthens the human-side, the side you must conquer; and because you must control it, do not give it more power/fuel than it needs. All the Prophets fasted to weaken their human-sides, and to increase their spiritual strength, which allowed them to hear Father’s guidance better. It was a form of self-sacrifice.

After the meal, you invite Him back to the living room to sit and talk. You explain how you see the world today, and what needs to be done. He is quiet. Then, you explain how He should do all the various things you have been trying, because if He did them, then people would listen. He remains silent, prompting you to ask if anything is wrong. Christ asks why you believe you know better than Father, or why your plan is better than Father’s plan in the Bible, that He has instructed everyone to put into action. At that moment, you realize you are trying to be the Teacher, and the true Teacher and only Master at Life sits in front of you. Humbly you ask, “Master, please teach me”.

Christ tells you to follow God’s Law, Judgements and Statutes as instructed, which are outlined in the Torah, the first five books of the Bible. He says to love Father first and foremost, then to love everyone else. Christ also explains that He saw your Earthly home when you opened the door, because He saw the body that houses your soul. It is the cross you must bear, or control. The body, run by its human-side, is concerned with Earthly furnishings, food, deals and steals, graven-images, and what it thinks is right (Deuteronomy 12:8). None of what you showed Him will enter heaven, He explains. Christ also explains that you should have taken care of the old table, paying close attention not to scratch it; and instead of replacing it, that you should have repaired the table, because the destruction of the table is wasteful, and replacing it breeds materialism. “Please, teach me more,” you ask.

Christ tells you that you must develop a personal one-on-one relationship with Father, by spending time alone with Father, in quiet thought, learning to hear His voice and instruction. When Christ left the first time, He left the Holy Spirit with everyone, so that they could communicate with Father directly. Few have ever truly understood this gift. In the world today, it would require Faith. You realize you must never lose faith in Father, you must trust as Noah did, despite the critics in the world. You must Trust as Abraham did. “I want everyone to like me and fit in here,” you say. Christ explains that that desire is from your human-side, but a spirit desires to please Father (Galatians 1:10).

He explains that one must be like Him to enter heaven again. Christ followed God’s Law, Judgements, Statutes and Commandments and told all others to do the same (John 14:6). He also talked with Father and did His Will, not His own. Christ loved everyone, even His enemies. “But I know all this,” you say, realizing that your efforts have not been disciplined, especially in the last few years, and “knowing” and “keeping” are two different things.

“Master, please tell me Your new name,” you ask, quoting Revelation 3:12: Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the Temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, [which is] New Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and [I will write upon him] my NEW name.

Christ reminded you that His followers would recognize His voice and then know His new name, quoting John 10:4: And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. His Voice, that speaks The Word of Father’s Truth. They would know Him by the Truth He speaks, when He returned.

Would you be glad you invited Him in, or regret having opened the door, instead of leaving Him knocking, outside (Luke 12:36, 13:25)?

Deuteronomy 12:8: Ye shall not do after all [the things] that we do here this day, every man whatsoever [is] right in his own eyes.

Galatians 1:10: For do I now persuade men, or [does] God [through me]? Or do I seek to please men? For if I yet PLEASED men, I should NOT be the servant of Christ.

John 14:6: Jesus saith unto him, I am The Way, the Truth, and the Life: Not one man cometh unto Father, EXCEPT by me.

Luke 12:36: And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return for the Wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately.

Luke 13:25: When once The Master of the house is risen up, and hath closed the door, and ye begin to stand outside, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not nor where ye are from:
