YHWH Passover and Bible Contradiction: How Long Were The Israelites In Egypt? – 430, 400, or 215 years?

YHWH Passover and Bible Contradiction: How Long Were The Israelites In Egypt? – 430, 400, or 215 years?

 

How Long Were The Israelites In Egypt?

This video explains how long the Israelites were in Egypt. Most people believe that they were in Egypt for 430 years. But based on the evidence shown, the Israelites were actually in Egypt for only 215 years.
Brief summary the video:
“Whoever copied the Hebrew text that our bibles are translated from -they dropped out two words that were in the original Hebrew, which causes it to seem like there’s a mathematical contradiction in the Bible. But there isn’t really. There’s just 2 words missing. But almost nobody knows about it, so most Christians believe the wrong thing. And atheists make fun of them for not knowing how to do basic math.”

YHWH Lamb By Aron Ryon

 Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread are very important as they represent the setting free from bondage.

In Egypt that bondage was not only the evils of the Egyptians but it was also their pagan worship. The Egyptians worshipped many deities giving each deity power over the different natural occurrences. With each plague Yahuwah demonstrated His power above what the Egyptians worshipped. The final plague showed that even Pharaoh was under Yahuwah’s rule. Pharaoh’s own son was killed because Pharaoh wouldn’t allow Yahuwah’s people to go into the wilderness to serve their Elohim. And serve Him we must! But… There are so many different opinions on how and when we are to observe this Awesome Feast that is makes one’s head spin. So let’s go to the WORD and find out EXACTLY what we are to do.

2017 Enoch Priestly Calendar at one glance

 

Exodus 12:5 Your Lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:
Exodus 12:6 And ye shall keep it up until (that is as far as) the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.
Evening- H6153 ‛ereb From H6150; dusk: evening, night
H6150 ‛ârab through the idea of covering with a texture; to grow dusky at sundown: – be darkened, (toward) evening.
We are to keep the Lamb alive until the fourteenth day of the first month. As the daylight is moving into darkness- (the day is considered growing dark when the afternoon shadows begin to grow longer)- the Lamb is killed, at the evening oblation.
Exodus 12:7 And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.
Exodus 12:8 And they shall eat the meats in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.
That Night– H3915 properly a twist (away of the light), night; figuratively adversity:
Exodus 12:10 And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire.

Exodus 12:11 And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is YAHUWAH’S Passover.
Exodus 12:12 For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am YAHUWAH.
Exodus 12:13 And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.
Col 2:17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Mashiach.
This is a night of adversity and fear, we are to eat in haste and be ready for what may come. The blood of the Lamb being a token of the future body of Yah’shua, not a bit of the Lamb is to remain until morning. If any was left it was to be burnt with fire until it was gone. The Lamb is the body of Yah’shua not to be nibbled on for days.
Exodus 12:14 And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to YAHUWAH throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance forever.
Exodus 12:15 Seven days you shall eat unleavened breads. And from the FIRST DAY you shall remove yeast from your houses. All who ever shall eat yeast, that soul shall be utterly destroyed from out of Israel, it shall be from the FIRST DAY until the SEVENTH DAY.
Exodus 12:16 And in the FIRST DAY there shall be an SET APART CONVOCATION, and in the SEVENTH DAY there shall be an HOLY CONVOCATION to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, save that which every man must eat, that only may be done of you. (kindling fire to prepare food may be done on those days, which might not be done on Shabbat days;)
Exodus 12:17 And you shall guard this COMMANDMENT (IT IS A COMMANDMENT). For in this day I will lead your force from out of the land of Egypt. And you shall appoint this day into your generations as an ETERNAL LAW.
Exodus 12:18 Commencing the fourteenth (14th) day of the first month from evening you shall eat unleavened breads until the first and twentieth day (21st day) of the month UNTIL EVENING

For seven days unleavened bread was eaten from the evening of the 14th day to the start of the evening of the 21st day – As Yahuwah starts this FEAST in the EVENING it must end in the EVENING, so we count SEVEN EVENING.

Yom Day Pesack ULB

The 1st day and the 7th day is a Set Apart Convocation with no regular work with the exception of preparing food. This is to be an ordinance FOREVER .
Let’s verify it with another witness… that in the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established. (Matthew 18:16)
Leviticus 23:4 ‘These are the feasts of Yahuwah, holy convocations which you shall proclaim at their appointed times.
Leviticus 23:5 On the fourteenth day of the first month between the evenings is Yahuwah’s Passover.
Here we see again Yahuwah confirming that THIS FEAST starts at sunset and ends at sunset.
Leviticus 23:6 And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the Feast of Unleavened Bread to Yahuwah; seven days you must eat unleavened bread.
Leviticus 23:7 On the FIRST DAY you shall have a SET APART CONVOCATION; you shall do no customary work on it.
Leviticus 23:8 But you shall offer an offering made by fire to Yahuwah for seven days. The SEVENTH DAY shall be a SET APART CONVOCATION; you shall do no customary work on it.
Numbers 33:3 And they departed from Rameses in the first month, on the fifteenth day of the first month; ON THE MORROW AFTER THE PASSOVER the children of Israel went out with an high hand in the sight of all the Egyptians.
Yahuwah says in verse 11 of Exodus 12 that we are to eat the Passover with our shoes on and fully dressed ready to go. Yahuwah knew that as soon as the death angel passed through Egypt, the Egyptians would be very afraid. So he had Israel ready to go right after the Miqra -Set Apart Convocation was over.

Exodus 12:42 It is a night to be much observed unto Yahuwah for bringing them out from the land of Egypt: this is that night of Yahuwah to be observed of all the children of Israel in their generations.
Exodus 11:3 And Yahuwah gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh’s servants, and in the sight of the people.
Exodus 11:4 And Moses said, Thus saith Yahuwah, in the middle of the night will I go out into the midst of Egypt:
Exodus 11:5 And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sits upon his throne, even unto the firstborn of the maidservant that is behind the mill; and all the firstborn of beasts.
Exodus 12:28 And the children of Israel went away, and did as Yahuwah had commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they.

That night, when the first-born were to be destroyed, no Israelite was to go out from under the protection of the blood covering until called to march out of Egypt. Their safety was owing to the blood of sprinkling. If they put themselves from under the protection of that, it was at their peril. They must stay within, to wait for the salvation of the Yahuwah. Through the generations they are to carefully teach their children the meaning of this service.

Exodus 12:29 And it happened in the middle of the night, and Yahuwah smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle.
Exodus 12:30 And Pharaoh rose up in the middle of the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead.

Exodus 12:31 And he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, Rise up, and get you forth from among my people, both ye and the children of Israel; and go, serve Yahuwah, as ye have said.
This only tells us that Pharaoh came in the night not that it was the same night of the Passover. The Egyptians where proud and haughty, they went along with their business as usual not thinking about what was to take place that night. In the middle of the night most were sleeping, unlike the Israelites who were aware of what was going to happen and kept vigil.

It would have taken time to report back to Pharaoh, after people were waking up, the immense devastation that had taken place the night of the 14th.
Also, Moses would not have gone against Yahuwah’s instructions to stay inside where it is safe. So now it is approaching the evening of the 15th day as theSet Apart Convocation is ending, ONLY THEN would Moses and Aaron meet with Pharaoh. So the Israelites are waiting too as Moses had told them what Yahuwah’s instructions were and are now making haste to get their belongings together in order to leave Egypt. You can imagine what a daunting task it must have been to get such a group ready to go in a short time.

Exodus 12:32 Also take your flocks and your herds, just as you said, and be gone; and baruch me also.
Exodus 12:33 And the Egyptians were urgent upon the people, that they might send them out of the land in haste; for they
said, We be all dead men.
Exodus 12:34 And the people took their dough before it was leavened, their kneading troughs being bound up in their clothes upon their shoulders.
Exodus 12:35 And the children of Israel did according to the word of Moses…

The Fulfillment of the Sacrificial Lamb Yah’shua Mashiach

What kind of ELOHIM do you worship? An ELOHIM, who changes Shabbat to Sunday, corrects His “mistakes” of bad laws and makes new laws to replace them? Or, is your ELOHIM one that progressively reveals Himself to His people through meaningful object lessons, through physical ordinances intended to convey spiritual lessons that become more and more significant as time goes on?
Yah’shua Ha’ Mashiach (The Messiah) said that the scripture cannot be broken.

John 10:34 Yah’shua answered them, Is it not written in your Law, “I said, You are gods?”
John 10:35 If He called those gods with whom the Word of Elohim was, and the Scripture cannot be broken,
John 10:36 do you say of Him whom the Father has sanctified and sent into the world, You blaspheme, because I said, I am the Son of Elohim?
Yah’shua came to fulfill that which was taught concerning Himself in the Torah. This included fulfilling the laws of sacrifices and ceremonies which were only part of the “Law” that Yahuwah gave through Moses. This included the Passover Sacrifice.
Matthew 5:17 Do not think that I have come to destroy the Law or the Prophets (teachings). I have not come to destroy but to fulfill.
Matthew 5:18 For truly I say to you, Till the heaven and the earth pass away, not one jot or one tittle shall in any way pass from the Law until all is fulfilled.
Yah’shua fulfills the requirement for sacrifice – but does not abolish Yahuwah’s commands to observe His feasts for “All Generations.” Ha’ Mashiach IS our Passover sacrifice whose blood covers and protects.
1Corinthians 5:7 Therefore purge out the old leaven so that you may be a new lump, as you are unleavened…
The old leaven – Here the apostle takes cause, from the mention of leaven- by the OLD leaven he means vice and sin. As the Jews, at the celebration of the Passover, gave all diligence in removing leaven from their houses – searching every part of their dwellings with candles, that they might remove every particle of leavened bread from their habitations – the apostle counsels them to use all diligence to search out and remove all sin.

…For also Ha’ Mashiach our Passover is sacrificed for us.

He is the object and purpose of YAHUWAH’s Passover meal. The signs point specifically to Him. He is the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. The true Passover sacrifice was planned before the creation of man.
Revelation 13:8 And all dwelling on the earth will worship it, those whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain, from the foundation of the world.
What are we to do today in these modern times? Follow Jewish tradition? Do we even need to observe the Passover?

Exodus 12:48 And when a stranger shall sojourn with thee, and will keep the Passover to Yahuwah, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one that is born in the land: for no uncircumcised person shall eat thereof.
Exodus 12:49 ONE LAW shall be to him that is homeborn, AND unto the stranger that sojourneth among you.
1Peter 2:21, 24, “For even hereunto were ye called: because Ha’Mashiach also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow HIS steps . . . Who His own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.”
Revelation 14:4 … These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto Jahuwah and to the Lamb.
Hebrews 10:28 He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses

How did Mashiach Yah’shua- who was the sacrificial Lamb- observe the Passover and how is it a witness for us today as to the way we are to follow in His footsteps and fulfill the Law of Yahuwah for all generations?

WITNESS ONE:

Matthew 26:17 Now the first day of the feast of unleavened bread the disciples came to Yah’shua, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the passover?
Matthew 26:18 And he said, Go into the city to such a man, and say unto him, The Master saith, My time is at hand; I will keep the passover at thy house with my disciples.
Matthew 26:19 And the disciples did as Yah’shua had appointed them; and they made ready the passover.
Matthew 26:20 Now when the even was come, he sat down with the twelve.
Matthew 26:21 And as they did eat,

WITNESS TWO:

Mark 14:12 And the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed the passover, his disciples said unto him, Where wilt thou that we go and prepare that thou mayest eat the passover?
Mark 14:22 And as they did eat, Yah’shua took bread (G740 artos), and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said, Take, eat: this is my body.
What of this BREAD that Yah’shua ate at the Passover. The torah said to eat unleavened bread but we see here in Mark that Yah’shua ate raised bread.
Bread- G740 artos bread (as raised) or a loaf: – shew bread.
There are many types of bread mentioned in the scriptures-
Exodus 12:15 Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread (H4682; matstsâh- in the sense of greedily devouring for sweetness; properly sweetness; concretely sweet (that is, not soured or bittered with yeast);
Deuteronomy 9:9 When I was gone up into the mount to receive the tables of stone, even the tables of the covenant which Yahuwah made with you, then I abode in the mount forty days and forty nights, I neither did eat bread (H3899 lechem- food for man or beast, especially bread, or grain for making it) nor drink water:
Luke 11:3 Give us day by day our daily artos- raised bread.

1Corinthians 10:17 For we being many are one bread artos, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread- artos.
Continuing with Mark 14-
Mark 14:23 And he took the cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them: and they all drank of it.
Mark 14:24 And he said unto them, This is my blood of the new covenant/contract, which is shed for many.

WITNESS THREE:

Luke 22:1 Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the Passover.
Luke 22:7 Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must be killed.
Luke 22:8 And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat.
Luke 22:14 And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him.
Luke 22:15 And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:
And what about Johns account of the Passover?
John 13:1 And before the feast of the Passover, when Yah’shua knew that His hour had come when He should depart out of this world to the Father, having loved His own in the world, He loved them to the end.
John 13:2 And when supper had ended, the Devil now having put into the heart of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon to betray Him
John 13:3 Yah’shua knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he was come from ELOHIM, and went to ELOHIM;
John 13:4 He rose from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself.
John 13:5 After that he poured water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which he was girded.
John 13:6 Then he came to Kepha (Peter): and Kepha saith unto him, Master, do you wash my feet?
John 13:7 Yah’shua answered and said unto him, You do not know what I do now, but you shall know hereafter
John 13:8 Kepha said to him, You shall never wash my feet. Yah’shua answered him, Unless I was you not, you have no part with me.
John 13:9 Kepha said to him, Master, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.
John 13:10 Yah’shua said to him, He that is washed needs not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all.
Yah’shua said to him, he that is washed…
Who is washed by Mashiach: such as one “is clean every whit”; is all over clean; not that he has no sin in him, nor commits any; but as he is washed in the blood of Ha’Mashiach, he is wholly and entirely clean.
…needs not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit;
The feet of his life and conversation, which are continually gathering dirt and need daily washing in the blood of Ha’Mashiach; and therefore recourse, must be constantly had to visit that fountain to wash in, for sin and for uncleanness.
And ye are clean, but not all;
There are and will always be unclean people among the pure disciples of Ha’Mashiach; there are chaff and tares among his wheat, goats among his sheep, and foolish virgins along with the wise ones.

John 13:11 For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean.
John 13:12 So after He had washed their feet and had taken His garments and had reclined again, He said to them, Do you know what I have done to you?
John 13:13 You call me Master and Teacher: and you say well; for so I am.
John 13:14 If I then, your Master and Teacher, have washed your feet; you also ought to wash one another’s feet.

John 13:15 For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you.
John 13:16 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his master; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.
John 13:17 If you know these things, happy are you if you do them.
John 13:18 I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eats bread with me hath lifted up his heel against me.

This is what we know so far- Yah’shua ate the Passover on the 14th day of the month the first day of Unleavened Bread, He took raised bread blessed it and told His disciples to partake of it with the wine. He washed the feet of His disciples. And we are to do as He has done.

Yah’shua came to fulfill the WORD, besides being the Passover what other parts were fulfilled? In His resurrection the “dead bread” – unleavened bread is now become the raised bread- The bread of life.

John 6:35 And Yah’shua said unto them, I am the bread of life (Artos -raised bread): he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.
We only had the Law prior to Ha’Mashiach. The Law itself does not save us nor give us sanctification. We follow the Law out of obedience, because to do otherwise would be sin/death- Unleavened bread.
But with Yah’shua we have LIFE eternally. A New Contract- a NEW PROMISE- and although there was a new promise of everlasting life, the original Contract made at Sinai was not void. Making a new promise NEVER removes our vows of previous promises.

1Corinthians 11:28 But let a man examine himself (remove his leaven), and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. (The body of Mashiach)
Yah’shua will keep a FUTURE Passover with HIS PEOPLE so it has not yet been complete. Ha’Mashiach has not observed His last Passover! He will eat and drink it anew with His true followers in the Kingdom of ELOHIM.
Matthew 26:29 But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on, until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father’s kingdom.
Mark 14:25 Truly I say to you, I will no more drink of the fruit of the vine until that day that I drink it new in the kingdom of Yahuwah.

Luke 22:15-18, “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 ELOHIM.”

This latter passage is clear proof that Yah’shua will eat the Passover in the Kingdom of ELOHIM with His true followers. Not until then will the Passover be fulfilled. It also pictures a future event: our deliverance from eternal death and the marriage supper of the Lamb.

Revelation 19:9. And he said to me, Write, Berakah are those who have been called to the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he said to me, these are the true sayings of Yahuwah.
Ancient Israel partook of the Passover. We today are to likewise partake of the Passover. This is a critical matter of our spiritual survival. That is why ELOHIM instituted the law in Numbers 9:6-13 when someone who through no fault of their own, missed the Passover of the 14th day of the first month, could partake of it on the 14th of the second month.
It is important to repeat… Unless ELOHIM specifically annuls His statutes, they are binding on us today whether or not they are repeated in the New Testament.
Passover of the OLD COVENANT commemorates the deliverance of Israel from Egyptian bondage through the death of Egypt’s firstborn.

 

The Passover of the NEW COVENANT commemorates our deliverance from the bondage of sin through the death and sacrifice of Yahuwah’s firstborn Yah’shua.
We partake of bread and wine to symbolize our acceptance and gratitude for ha’Mashiach’s broken body and shed blood for our sins. As Yah’shua told us to keep it, we are to faithfully continue to practice and pass on the “ordinances.”

1Corinthians 11:1-2 Be you followers of me, even as I also am of Ha’Mashiach. Now I praise you, brethren, that you remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances, as I delivered them to you.

The Passover and Feast of Unleavened Bread are known as the “Festival of Freedom,” signifying our liberation from Satan’s grasp through Yah’shua and the present and future deliverance of the Almighty’s people.
We need to examine ourselves before partaking of the Passover. It is a serious matter. We must not partake of the Passover in a light or unworthy manner, but with dignity and reverence.
Yahuwah’s judgment will soon come on this present evil world. Yahuwah judged the “Idol/gods” of Egypt. After Yah’shua finished His Last Supper, He said that the prince of this world, Heylel/Lucifer, was now judged.
This judgment on Heylel was pronounced, but is not yet carried out. Heylel still rules this world. The coming Passover of the future will be the deliverance of Yahuwah’s people and the judgment of Heylel and his world.
Passover is primarily concerned with a future event, as are all of YAHUWAH’s Set Apart days that He has set aside to be observed by His people.”

Colossians 2:16-17 refers to the Set Apart Days as “a shadow of the things to come.” The Great Future Passover has not yet been fulfilled. For it is The Marriage Supper!
Matthew 25:6 And in the MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom comes! Go out to meet him.

In the Word there are some notable passages in which the concept of the Lamb of ELOHIM is highlighted. They seem to be progressive and they light our understanding as we look at them.

In Genesis 4 the emphasis is on the necessity of the Lamb. Abel and his Lamb
He is our Propitiation. (One sacrifice)
In Genesis 22 the emphasis is on Yahuwah’s provision of the Lamb. Abraham offers a Lamb
He is our Substitution. (For one person)
In Exodus 12 the emphasis is on the slaying of the Lamb. The Passover Lamb
He is our Protection. (For one family)
In Leviticus the emphasis is on the character of the Lamb (without spot or wrinkle).
The Lamb as a sin-offering
He is our Absolution. (For one nation)
In Isaiah 53 the emphasis is on the Lamb as a Person. The suffering Lamb
He is our Expiation. (For all the elect)
In John 1:29-36 the emphasis is on Yah’shua as the Lamb. Yah’shua is the Lamb
He is the Removal of sin. (For the whole world)
In Acts 8 the emphasis is on Yah’shua the Lamb as Messiah. The Lamb is Messiah
He is our Salvation. (For whosoever)
In 1Peter 1 the emphasis is on the resurrection of the Lamb. The Lamb is resurrected
He is our Redemption. (For all history)
In Revelation 5 the emphasis is on the enthronement of the Lamb. The Lamb is enthroned
He is our Government. (For the entire universe)
In Revelation 21-22 the emphasis is on the Kingship of the Lamb. The Lamb reigns
He is our Kavod, Esteem and Honor. (For all eternity)

The picture of Yah’shua in the Scriptures is progressive and deep. He is the Word of Yahuwah. The universality of Yah’shua becomes more and more personal until we have to accept or reject Him on our own as our sacrifice before the ELOHIM of the whole universe.

“And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to YAHUWAH throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance forever,” Ex. 12:14.

    THE “MARK OF THE BEAST” VISION I HAD

    I don’t know on the time/when; maybe 15 years ago. We were standing a good 60 meters from a table that the line formed at. At the table were “officials” some who were armed. How we knew what was happening at the table was occasionally someone familiar with the Mark of the Beast would reach the front of the line and loudly protest, “This is the Mark of the Beast!! I’m not taking that!!” The armed officials would then direct them to the wilderness and their most certain death, telling them, “You go in the wilderness! You are not fit for our organized society!” YaHuWSHuWaH says to me, “Why would you get in this line? You can see from here what it is for.” And, something to the effect, “…you get to the front of the line and bring a bunch of unnecessary attention to yourself.”

    It was about that time that YaHuWaH told me, “Learn to live by trust/faith now while it is easy.”

    And since then he showed me a couple more things:

    1) We don’t need a survival kit like the one I was building because we are given the wings of a great eagle and taken away to a place PREPARED FOR US!

    Related to #1, what it takes to qualify for the “wings of a great eagle” from Exodus 19:4-5:

    “You have seen what I did to Egypt; and I bore you on wings of eagles and brought you to Me.
    And now if listening you will listen to My voice, and will keep My covenant, you shall become a special treasure to Me above all the nations, for all the earth is Mine.”

    So, you want the “wings of eagles” treatment listen to YaHuWaH’s Voice and keep His Covenant!

    2) He took 600,000 men, their wives, children and livestock into the wilderness and supplied everything they needed for more than 40 years. It is not problem for Him to do that for us and our families again.

    3) We should learn to sustain ourselves by our trust in YaHuWaH. The middle of a crisis is not the time to be learning to trust Him.

    I am seeing that we get in the line when we participate and rely on the Beast System. Any place you have to apply or sign; look out. Some have said that Social Security benefits including disability will only be available to those who agree to be chipped. It would seem like if that is the case unemployment benefits would be right behind.

    15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the shamayim to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
    16 And Elohim made-asah [assigned] two great lights; the greater light to rule the yom, and the lesser light to rule the night: therefore namely the cochavim.
    17 And Elohim set them in the firmament of the shamayim to give light upon the earth,
    18 And to rule over the yom and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and Elohim saw that it was tov.
    19 And the evening and the morning were Yom Reeve-DAY FOUR.

    Deuteronomy-Devarim Chapter 16 Verse 1-The Second Torah Witness
    שָׁמוֹר, את-חֹדֶשׁ הָאָבִיב, וְעָשִׂיתָ פֶּסַח, לַיהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ: כִּי בְּחֹדֶשׁ הָאָבִיב, הוֹצִיאֲךָ

    ​​What About These MOON Verses? Please can we get this straight instead of the constant rehash every year?
    ​Psalm 89:37- IT shall be established le-olam-va-ed as the yarayach, and as a faithful witness in the shamayim. Selah.

    In verse 36 it is David’s seed that is made into a faithful witness preserved IN THE HEAVENS or the throne; just like the moon is in the heavens FOREVER; so the heavens is the place of the preserving of the faithful witness or YHWH’s throne-promises-Word FOREVER.This verse does not claim that the moon is forever faithful for telling time, as it remains sick and dysfunctional giving unbibical 29 day months and 13 month years, which if blindly followed, will cause everyone to miss the appointed times of YHWH.
    Psalm 136:9 – The yarayach and cochavim to rule by night: for His rachamim endures le-olam-va-ed.
    ​This verse DOES NOT CLAIM the moon as a ruler of the night by its own light. Read it again. The stars rule the night and the moon joins that ruler, as it reflects the suns light, along with the night ruler in TANDEM. The night ruler is established in Torah Gen 1:14-16 [as THE LESSER LIGHT-NAMELY THE STARS] not in Psalms. Remember the biblical rule of first mention.
    Psalm 104 :19 – He created the yarayach for moadim: the shemesh knows its going down.
    20 You make darkness, and it is night: in it all the beasts of the forest do creep.
    21 The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their food from El.
    The moon IS a SIGN for NIGHT HUNTING BY THE NIGHT CREATURES before the sunrise. These verses have ZERO to do with the appointed times of Leviticus 23 which are SOLELY SOLAR BASED. This misunderstanding has been a major erroneous assumption, that somehow they refer to the feasts of YHWH.

    PSALM 81:4 AND THE RABBINIC AGENDA!
    ד תִּקְעוּ בַחֹדֶשׁ שׁוֹפָר; בַּכֵּסֶה לְיוֹם חַגֵּנוּ
    meaning blow IN-AT the MONTH the shofar, in-at the FULLNESS of the day of our feast…that means that on the Feast of Unleavened Bread in its fullness, we are to blow the shofar at our chag…in Torah a chag is only Unleavened Bread, Feast of Weeks or Tabernacles. [3 not 8 moadem]..see how slick the enemy is? The word moon appears nowhere here and neither does the term “full moon.” Of course the rabbis translate it as full moon, to make you a disciple of the Antiochus Epiphanies lunar calendar, FORCED ON JUDAISM after the Macabbean victory. It can also mean blow the shofar at the fullness of the feast of Unleavened Bread, based on verses 5-6 which refers to the Exodus. Nothing to do with anybody’s moon! BY Moshe

  3. PASSOVER OR EASTER
    Which One Honors Our Savior?

    By the mid-1st century CE, the Greek Elite, and Jews who had converted to Greek paganism under threat by Antiochus Epiphanies, were afraid that this Jewish Messiah whose followers guarded the Torah would take over their power with the pagans. The Greeks and Romans hated the Torah. They hated Yahuwah, and thus they hated Yahushua. They had to get rid of anything “Jewish”/Hebrew. To do so, they created a counterfeit religion that was very close to their own sun gods religions, as well as fitting it in with some of the Hebrew Scriptures. They created what was originally “Gnostic Christianity,” which made Messiah a non-Deity created man. When Constantine wanted to unite his fragmenting empire, he needed a religion to unite everyone – all the pagans that is, especially his military who worshipped Sol Invictus Mithra, as he did. This was the god of Persia. So, he took Greek Gnostic Christianity, and reduced all the gods of the Roman and Greek Pantheon down to one savior god – Iesous in Greek, Yesu in Latin. He exalted Iesous as the primary Deity. At the Council of Nicaea in 325 CE, he exalted the birthday of Iesous as December 25th, since all the savior-gods of Greece and Rome were born on the day, like Zeus, Apollo, or Jupiter. He made sure that the Festival of the rising of the sun gods, and Festival of the Mother of God, Queen of Heaven, was also honored by the Church. By uniting the main festivals of pagan sun god religion, he was successful in uniting his empire – uniting pagans, that is.
    Anyone joining his new “Church,” over which he ruled as the Pontifex Maximus, Pope, and Vicar of Christ, would be exempt from any religious persecution. HOWEVER, those who worshipped and obeyed the God of Israel and His Messiah were subject to death. It was the true believers, who never called themselves “Christians”–followers of the Egyptian-Greek god Christos–but were known as the followers of the Way or the followers of the Nazarene, who were torn apart by lions, beheaded, burned at the stake, despised, and hunted down for death. (i.e. Acts 24)
    Emperor Constantine also enforced the worship of Iesous/Yesu on Sun-day–the day the pagans worshipped the sun god. He ordered all government institutions closed–banks, schools, and the like (sound familiar). Sunday was declared “the lord’s day.” In the Hebrew language “Ba’al,” the Canaanite god, is “lord.” Sun-day became known among Christians as “the lord’s day.” In the Tenach, the misnamed OLD Testament, 6, 823 times the word “Lord” (Ba’al) is inserted in place of “Yahuwah.” Today in Hebrew the word for “lord” is “Adonai.” That is the Phoenician word for “lord,” but in Greek it is the god “Adonis.” Greece, Rome, and all their friends have had one goal for a very long time – erase Yahuwah and erase Yahushua. This is the driving force of Globalism; the religion of the Elite is Luciferian. The ultimate goal of globalism, empowered by Satan, is Revelation 19:19!!!
    Isaiah 41:8, KJV: “I am the Lord, that is My Name…” But, that is not a true statement. His Name is not Ba’al! The Scriptures version words it correctly: “I, I am Yahuwah–that is My Name…”
    Why do the fallen ones fear of His Name? Zechariah 3:2 gives us a clue. Yahuwah used His own Name to rebuke Satan. It is the most powerful Name in the universe. His Son was given His Name – Yahushua Yahuwah. “Yahuwah” means “I AM the ever-existing eternal One who breathes.” “Yahushua” means, “Yahuwah is salvation.” If you were the Devil, wouldn’t you want to get rid of those two Names totally? Every time they are used, Satan cringes.
    The Greek Iesous, Yesu in Latin, to Constantine, was a fascinating new sun god. He made his mother, “Mary,” the Queen of Heaven, in his pagan trinity–the new “vestal virgin.” Her name was Miriam! But, please – no Hebrew! Peter and Paul took the place of the founders of Rome–Romulus and Remus. Constantine made sure that the celebrations of the new Church DID NOT have anything to do with the Torah, or Hebrew worship. He made sure that no one in his Church celebrated Shabbat or kept the festivals of Yahuwah, under penalty of death. The Jews were his new enemy, (the new villain he created as part of his plan to unite his empire) whom he called “Christ killers.” Whereas the early believers exalted the resurrection, the Roman Catholic Church exalted a dead, bloody, “Christ.”
    Constantine fashioned his sword into the shape of an ancient fertility symbol associated with Easter–the cross–to kill Jews, and anyone else who refused to be baptized into his new Church. The “crux” (Latin) or cross was an ancient fertility symbol that had to do with the worship of Easter. In the spring, a certain star crossed through the constellation of the Virgin (Virgo)–Queen of Heaven–“Mother of god”–and impregnated her, so that on December 25th she could give birth to the sun god. It was a yearly ritual.
    The symbol of the early believers in Messiah was the Menorah–Revelation 1, representing Yahushua as the Light of the World. Pagans loved the new religion of Iesous. They were called “Christians” after the Egyptian-Greek god of Alexandria, Egypt, also known as Chreston, Christos, or Krishna (India).
    The Roman Emperor Hadrian, in the 2nd century, commented that in Egypt, the worshippers of Serapis, the sun god that replaced Osiris, were called “Christians,” and their leaders were called “the Bishops of Christ.”
    Today, it is estimated that there are over 43,000 different denominations and organizations all calling themselves “Christian. Yet, the real Messiah said that those who entered the way of life would be “few” (Matthew 7:13-14). Today, Christianity is the world’s largest religion, and the Roman Church is the wealthiest institution on the planet.
    Matthew 7:13-14, 21-23: “Enter in through the narrow gate! Because the gate is wide—and the way is broad—that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter in through it. Because the gate is narrow and the way is hard pressed that leads to life, and there are FEW who find it…Not everyone who says to Me, `Master, Master’ shall enter into the reign of the heavens, but he who is doing the desire of My Father in the heavens. Many shall say to Me in that Day, `Master, Master’ have we not prophesied in Your Name, and done many mighty works in Your Name? And then I shall declare to them, `I never knew you, depart from Me, you who work lawlessness.”
    The word “lawlessness” in the Greek is “a nomia,” which means “without the Torah.” I John 3:4 tells us: “Sin is the transgression of the Torah.” The word “transgression” means: “revolt, rebellion, to break away from, and apostasy.” Therefore, Greek-Roman Christianity from its beginning has taught its members to revolt, rebel, and break away from the Torah of Yahuwah. It you have been a part of this apostasy, as most of us have, before embracing the guarding Torah, you must repent of being in paganism and rejecting Him. I know you think you’re not guilty because you were ignorant of the Truth, but look at Leviticus 2 – there were also sacrifices required for sins of ignorance.
    NOTE: While performing the works of the Torah alone does NOT save anyone, for we are saved by faith in the blood of the Lamb of Elohim, faithful obedience to Torah is required to be a law-abiding citizen in the Kingdom of Heaven. Without obedience to the Covenant of Yahuwah, faith is just a meaningless belief-system.
    There are instructions observed in Christianity that guard the spirit of Torah – like loving others, helping the poor, widows, and orphans, moral purity, and being a light to the lost to lead them to salvation. Begin with observing the Shabbat, from Friday night to Saturday night. Look at articles like “The Sign of Identification,” for guidelines and Scriptures, or “Shabbat is Eternal” for a thorough study through all the Scriptures. These are under the mikvah of the Covenant on my website, comeenterthemikvah.com.
    In Hebrews 4:9, the Greek reads: “For there remains a keeping of Shabbat for the children of Elohim.”
    How awful that Jews were “weeping for Tammuz”–Ezekiel 8. The women were weeping because it was still winter, and Tammuz, Nimrod’s incarnation as the baby sun god, had not “risen” yet as “lord” of the spring—the time of the lengthening of the days of sun. Legend says that Tammuz, when he was 40 years old, was out hunting and was gored to death by a wild bore. The “weeping for Tammuz” was 40 days in honor of his age at death. So, Roman Catholic tradition, in following the forty-day weeping for Tammuz tradition of the pagans, instituted the forty days of “Lent.” The weeping for Tammuz was part of one’ denying themselves of something they liked for 40 days to honor Tammuz.
    The day the fertility goddess–Easter, Ishtar/Astarte, the Queen of Heaven, the Mother of God–was honored, was also the day her son, Tammuz, supposedly rose from the dead. He was honored amid shouts of “he is risen; he is risen from the dead.” After a worship service honoring the risen sun god, they people proceeded to Easter Sunday dinner, where ham was served traditionally to mock the bore who gored Tammuz. Did you ever wonder why ham is the traditional meat for Easter Sunday? Did you ever wonder why the “Easter egg hunts,” the bunnies, and little girls dressed up with flowers in their hair? The truth is horrifying!
    Girls were impregnated by pagan priests on December 25th. Their babies would be born in September of the following year. At Easter time, when their babies were 13-14 months old, they were sacrificed to the gods. Eggs, representing the Queen of Heaven, were dipped in their blood. The eggs were hidden, and children hunted for them. One year the Easter egg hunt on the White House lawn featured only eggs dyed red. Halloween, Christmas, and Easter are the prime “holidays’ of the pagans which included child sacrifice. That practice is still with us today in Satanism.
    In Ezekiel 8, those worshippers of the sun god were the leaders of the worship of Yahuwah, yet they turned their backs to the presence of Yahuwah, in the Most Set-Apart Place of the Temple. They came to the Temple early on the day of Ishtar, the day of the rising of Tammuz, and awaited the sun rise. As the sun rose, they held palm branches to their noses, to shield the light and as a type of honor, as they viewed the rising sun over the Mount of Olives on Easter Sunday morning. Yahuwah departed (read from Ezekiel 8-11:23), yet they did not realize He was gone. His glory has never returned as it once was, and will not return until our Messiah comes and touches the Mount of Olives again, bringing with Him “all the saints”—Zechariah 14:1-5. HalleluYah! We look forward to that day with great anticipation! Are you one of these: II Timothy 4:8?
    Yahuwah says regarding the priests: “They put the branch to My nose.” He was saying that the priests were trying to include Him in their sun god worship–trying to make their worship of Tammuz to be all right with Yahuwah. But, Yahuwah hates a mixture. Think: Have you been guilty of putting the branch to His nose–trying to make Him go along with your pagan worship of other gods? This is dangerous! It says in Deuteronomy 18, that to involve yourself in anything that honors other gods, breaks the first commandments, and is punishable by Yahuwah.
    The highest and greatest of all commandments begins with “You shall have no other gods in My face!” (Exodus 20:3) This command continues on with “You shall love Yahuwah your Elohim with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your might.” (Deuteronomy 6:5) It flows over into “You shall love your neighbor as yourself. I am Yahuwah!” (Leviticus 19:18)
    Tammuz was worshipped at the rising of the sun on the day of Easter, with the words: “He is risen; He is risen from the dead.” These are the exact words that are said in the Roman Catholic Mass for Easter Sunday morning!
    Around 312 CE, Constantine supposedly saw a cross in the sky and heard the words “In this sign conquer.” If he had such a vision, it came from Satan. Because of it, he fashioned his sword into the shape of a cross and used it to slaughter Jews and believers in Yahushua who were Torah-observant. The Roman Catholic Church instituted the Crusades, for over 300 years of Inquisition to slaughter Jews and purge out of the church anyone who kept the Torah–whom they called “heretics.” The Inquisition went from Spain to Mexico, where for 300 years it continued from Mexico City south. It came into the southern U.S. also.
    Pope Benedict was the head of the Inquisition Files for the Vatican before he became pope. The Inquisition never ended. Think about that! It is still going on by the Jesuit’s slaughter of Yahuwah’s people in Africa, in Mexico, in Central and South America, and parts of Asia. Once the anti-messiah sits down on the Temple Mount, the Inquisition will take a new twist and turn.
    Even today the Jesuits, which was created to defend the Vatican by the sword, are still the “hit men” of the Vatican, killing those in ”Catholic countries”, who won’t submit to the Pope. They are responsible for the slaughter of millions of believers. In Mexico, many Jesuits have been seen carrying big machine guns.
    The “cross,” and Easter, to the pagans, were inseparable. Our Messiah, Yahushua, was nailed to a stake, a pole, a tree, with His hands over His
    head. Even the Greek word “stauros” is true to that truth. It means a stake, pole or tree. The word “cross” is only used in translations of the Messianic Scriptures (misnamed “New Testament”) 28 times. The word “crux”–English “cross”–was a substitution of the Greek “stauros” in the Latin Vulgate translation by its Gnostic translator “St.” Jerome. Yahushua was not nailed to a “cross”–a pole with a crossbeam. The Messiah of Israel, the Redeemer of Israel, the Elohim of Israel, was nailed to a “tree”-in fulfillment of the Scriptures. (Deuteronomy 21:22-23)
    Isaiah 45:20-22 is talking about the crucifix. Today only one major religion worships the “wood.” The Word talks about those who worship the “wood and the stone”–the “wood” worshippers are Catholics, worshippers of stone are Muslims.
    Isaiah 45:20-22: “Gather yourselves and come, draw near together, you who have escaped from the gentiles. No knowledge have they who are lifting up the wood of their carved image, and pray to a god that does not save…Turn to Me and be saved, all you ends of the earth! For I am El, and there is none else.”
    Isaiah 43:11: “I am Yahuwah, and besides Me there is no savior.”
    The word “savior” is “yesha.” This is #3467 in the Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible, and means: “to be open, wide, or free, to be safe, to free or succor, deliver, help preserve, rescue, bring salvation, save, and get victory”. Our Messiah’s Name, Yahushua, means: “Yahuwah is salvation.” Messiah said: “I have come in My Father’s Name.”
    The goddess Easter, and by her other many names, is also known as “Mother Earth.” She came to earth in an egg–now you believe that don’t you? It is not funny really, because she is still worshipped by neo-pagans, witches, New Age believers, and, sorry to say, Christians, under the guise of the “mother of Jesus.” She was worshipped with eggs and bunnies–fertility symbols, and the cross symbol. She is still worshipped today by groups of New Age believers as Mother Earth, Gaia, or Mother Nature. Her worship is at the core of the worldwide “environmental movement” that makes the spotted owl more important than a human being, at least in America that is.
    John Henry Newman’s book, The Essay on the Development of Christine Doctrine, published in 1878, chapter 8, states: “The rulers of the Church from early times were prepared, should the occasion arise, to adopt, to imitate, or to sanctify the existing rites and customs of the population, as well as the philosophy of the educated class. The use of temples and those dedicated to particular saints, and ornamented occasion with branches of trees (wreaths), incense, lamps, candles, votive offerings on recovering from illness, holy water, holy days and seasons (the entire Church calendar), use of calendars, processions, blessings on the fields, sacerdotal vestments, the ring in marriage, chants, the Kyrie Elesion–are all of Pagan origin, and sanctified by adoption into the Church.” Now there it is!
    Also another fantastic reference book is Alexander Hyslop’s The Two Babylons (c. 1858). It has always been known by the Catholic “fathers” that Rome was the second Babylon. “St.” Augustine, in the 2nd century, said that Rome was the second Babylon. Rome adopted the cultures of Babylon, Persia, and Greece, and parts of Egyptian worship into its system. This adopted worship was then fused with Christianity, and became the basis of the Roman Catholic Church. The Reformation did not pull out the roots of Catholicism, which did little to change this foundation, so, as history tells us, the Protestant Church are the daughters of Rome.
    Constantine’s Council sought to institute new tolerances for Pagan patterns, and outlaw the patterns that the Savior lived by and taught. Constantine had already proclaimed (321CE) that now it came time to `syncretize’ more Paganism.” The word “syncretize” (to bring everything into “sync,” or alignment) is used to mean: “to absorb one belief into another, to merge or mesh belief.” Making the “sign of the cross”, for example, became popular by 310CE, among pagans as part of this syncretizing program. The official syncretizing of paganism with Messianic belief began around 95CE.
    “Replacement Theology” says that the Church replaced the Jews, the Torah, and the God of the Jews. They replaced Yahuwah’s teachings with a cheap philosophy of “grace” Torah-less disobedience. [Refer to: “Replacement Theology”/2005]
    In the 1700’s, the Jewish false messiah, Shabbtai Tzvi, merged his belief with the Roman Church, and also with the new Illuminati movement. As the new “messiah” he announced that God had thrown out the Torah, and now sexual freedom and all sorts of freedoms were allowed. It is shocking that men like Shimon Perez was a strong follower of Shabbtai Tzvi, along with other powerful leaders in Europe and America.
    Lew White, in his book Fossilized Customs, says: “In order to blend practices into universal behavior, the real Shabbat was outlawed, along with Passover and other annual `Jewish’ observances…The Edict of Milan outlawed synagogues, but Constantine’s Council at Nicaea (325 CE) boldly outlawed the Torah.” [For more information, I recommend Dr. Michael Brown’s book, Our Hands Are Stained With Blood–excellent information by a Messianic Jew)
    Constantine’s Bishop, Eusebius, admitted that Constantine changed the Shabbat to Sunday. He also knew that Constantine was a worshipper of “Sol Invictus”–the unconquerable sun–until his death.
    Yahuwah’s Pesach, or Passover, honors in remembrance the great “Pass Over” of the death angel in Egypt. (Exodus 12) The death angel saw the blood on the door of the Israelites, and passed over, only killing the first born of Egypt. When we have applied Messiah’s blood to our lives, the eternal death angel cannot take us into the lake of fire. It is a week of rejoicing for us, who are born again by the death of our “Lamb of Elohim.”
    Yahushua came to fulfill the ceremonial law of animal sacrifices, and to offer Himself, the final Lamb, for our eternal salvation—removing sin, and pronouncing us “justified” in the eyes of Yahuwah. But, He primarily came to restore the “lost sheep of the House of Israel,” the ten lost tribes, back to the Covenant of Yahuwah once again. Look at Hosea 1. It states the promise of this restoration. The House of Israel was so vile, which most of us came from, that He had to “divorce” us, break the engagement, and send us into the nations AMONG the gentiles. He never ever called His people “gentiles.” He says in His Word that He will destroy all gentiles. No one in Messiah is a gentile. Look at the wording of Matthew 15:24, 10:5-6, and Ephesians 2:8-19. [For details, refer to: “Are You a Gentile?” and “Who Are the Ten?”]
    Because of His death, He can now marry–take as a bride–a remnant of the whole House of Ya’cob – all the tribes. But, He mainly came for the “lost sheep of the House of Israel,” the 10 northern tribes. The Word is full of Scripture about this restoration, a prime one being Ezekiel 37:15-28. He had to die to break the original covenant that He cut with us at Sinai, according to Deuteronomy 2:1-4. The only way He could marry a remnant of the House of Israel would be to die, break the engagement by death, and rise again to be able to marry His “FEW” who love Him. It is the greatest love story of all time!
    Regarding Jeremiah 31:31-34 and Matthew 26:28–The word used, translated into English as “new,” is actually, in Hebrew, and Greek, the word for to “renew, to make fresh again.” It is the same word used for a “new moon.” Messiah did not come to create a “new” covenant and dump His Father’s Covenant in the garbage. He came to make a way for the whole House of Ya’cob to be able to enter into the fullness of the original covenant, plus have the ability to be transformed by the Spirit into an entirely new creation, able to return to the extra-dimensional state of the Garden of Eden.
    Are you living up to your full potential as a child of Elohim?
    Messiah came so that He could renew His original Covenant with His people, the sons of Ya’cob/Jacob, and write His Torah on their hearts, so that they would never again stray away from Him. The Spirit of Yahuwah was sent on the “Day of Pentecost”–Shavu’ot– (Acts 2) to write the Torah on the hearts of the born-again ones, and to remain with them until He comes, to teach, to guide, to restore, to protect, and to show things to come.
    Messiah Yahushua, and His disciples and Apostles, kept this Pesach week, which includes the Feasts of Passover, Unleavened Bread, and First Fruits. These three Festivals–set-apart eternal appointments–were designed as pictures of His death, burial and resurrection.
    I Corinthians 5:7-8: Apostle Sha’ul tells us to keep the Feast of Passover. I Corinthians 15:20-24: Sha’ul tells us that Yahushua is our First Fruits–the “First Fruits” from the dead unto resurrection and eternal life.
    During Passover this year, study Exodus 12, 13 and 14. This is where the three festivals of Passover, Unleavened Bread, and First Fruits began.
    In preparation for Passover and Unleavened Bread, we get all leaven out of our houses before sunset on the 14th of Aviv, ridding our houses of yeast, baking powder and baking soda, and things made with leavening, like bread, cookies, cake, crackers, etc. Read labels! “Leaven” pictures sin. We clean our houses to get out “breadcrumbs.” This is where we get “Spring cleaning.” We also prepare spiritually by repentance–getting spiritual leaven out of our lives. For 8 days, we eat unleavened bread, called “matzo.” Instructions for keeping these Festivals are found in Exodus 12-14 and Leviticus 23.
    During the week of Unleavened Bread, we celebrate His resurrection–First Fruits–and rejoice that because He arose, we will also rise to meet Him in the air at His coming. When they crossed the Red Sea, and Pharaoh was drowned with his army, his right to keep the Israelites as slaves was destroyed. When Messiah came up out of the grave on that same day centuries later, all rights of Satan over us were taken away, so that we can be free of his rule and control over our lives. Yet, most believers are bound by Satan, simply because they do not understand what Messiah did for us.
    Isn’t it interesting that Noah’s ark rested on Mt. Ararat on Aviv 17, First Fruits–the day the judgment was officially ended?–The day Messiah came out of the grave, the judgment of eternal death ended for those that received His sacrifice. All He has ever wanted for us is our freedom to live life here on earth as close to life in heaven as possible. What a wonderful Father! What a wonderful Savior!
    Love to you all, Chag Sameach!

    Rid your houses of yeast – or did YHWH say “leaven”?

    The feast is meant as a reminder to us of the Israelites’ redemption from bondage in Egypt and of our redemption from sin through Mashiyach Yeshua/Jesus Christ. God’s Word tells us that during Hag HaMatzot – the Feast of Unleavened Bread we have to spend a week without “leaven” in our lives. This feast, which…

    Do you know what was just described? Chametz! Not yeast – yeast is the small microscopic organism and an important part of the substance, but it is the mixture – the mixture of sticky, pleasant smelling “stuff” that as a whole is the substance you add to knead into dough to make the dough rise. This is chametz – leaven.
    Chametz etymologically means “hot” and “pressed”, so the most accurate translation in English should be chametz = “baked bread”. But “chametz”, in reality, comes from a root which means “to be sour”. So where YHWH says (Exodus 12:20) to eat nothing with chametz “in it” – it literally means the material from which the bread is made – the mixture, i.e., chametz! If you have the chametz – get rid of it, if you have the baked bread (which has chametz in it), get rid of that!
    Do you get the point? Unless you understand the meaning of “leaven”, i.e., “chametz” you won’t be able to understand Yeshua’s teachings:
    Yeshua told His disciples in Matthew 16:6: “So when Yeshua said to them, “Watch out! Guard yourselves against the chametz of the P’rushim (Pharisees) and the Tz’dukim (Sadducees)”, the talmidim (disciples) thought He was talking about “bread,” – but He meant the leaven of FALSE TEACHINGS and FALSE DOCTRINES! (Verses 8-12).
    But if you read the same verse from a translation called “The Message” it says:
    Matthew 16:5-6 On their way to the other side of the lake, the disciples discovered they had forgotten to bring along bread. In the meantime, Jesus said to them, “Keep a sharp eye out for Pharisee-Sadducee yeast.”
    Huh? Wow! That has no meaning whatsoever! The original meaning of the scripture is totally lost. “The Message” has literally lost the message!
    This is why it is so important to read the Bible in its true context. Don’t be led astray by man’s ideas; pray that YHWH will reveal those words that cause misunderstanding and ask Him to give you the desire to seek His true meaning.
    And be aware of the LEAVEN that can take you from YHWH.

    In summary, the Torah commandments are:
    For Pesach, we are to remove all chametz from our homes (Exodus 12:15)
    We are not to possess chametz in our house or “territory” during Passover. (Exodus 12:19; 13:7 and Deuteronomy 16:4)
    Not to eat chametz during Passover, instead, eat matzah (Exodus 12:18; 13:6, Exodus 12:20, Deuteronomy 16:3)
    In all these mitzvot, the command is to simply remove baked bread and eat matzah – in commemoration of the exodus – not so much for the purpose of being strictly obedient of “what” to eat or not eat. Rather it is the ACT of removing baked breads, not consuming baked breads with your meal, and spending the week of Pesach with YHWH that is important.
    Regardless of whether or not you have “leaven” or “yeast” in the house, as long as you have rid your home of baked bread and do not consume baked bread during Pesach, you are acting in obedience to Torah.
    By “baked bread”, there are two considerations to evaluate. First there is the obvious – the actual loaf of baked bread. Today, this is usually in a plastic bag and is “ready to eat”. The other is the cake mix in a box on your pantry shelf. Though it is technically not “baked bread” as it is not yet “baked”, it is most definitely the key ingredients ready to be turned into baked bread.
    YHWH was pretty clear that these things qualify as well as they are “leavening agents” (see Exodus 13:7). The difference is clearly that it is not all mixed up into “chametz”. Nevertheless, it seems clear that for all practical purposes cake mixes in boxes are “leavening agents”. Ridding our homes of prepared baked bread in a bag certainly meets YHWH’s mitvot, and in our household we also get rid of cake mixes in boxes.
    You are certainly free to decide in your homes what you should do to prepare your household for the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

    Hag HaMatzot: Feast of Unleavened Bread
    …So, are we to rid our houses of yeast or leaven?
    When in doubt, throw it out!

  5. The Ruach of Yahuwah was moving as we celebrated the Feast of Firstfruits today, the 26th of Aviv (APRIL 15TH 2017), Yom Echad, the day after the 4th Shabbat of this first Chodesh / month of the year. (Last Yom Echad, we celebrated the Feast of the Firstfruit, singular, namely, the Master Yahushua, for He rose in the night after the 3rd Shabbat of Aviv, the 18th, which signifies life, the letter chet.)
    When the Master rose up from the tomb, then He also awakened the 144,000, those who are called the Firstfruits in Chazon / Revelation 14:4. These are the ones who went into Yahrushalayim witnessing for the Master, who are just barely mentioned in Mattityahu / Matthew 27:52-53. After 7 days, on the Feast of Firstfruits, the Master Yahushua presented these Firstfruits to Yahuwah Avinu / our Father, for they are the fulfillment of the wave-sheaf offering that the Kohen ha-Gadol waved before Yahuwah on the Feast of Firstfruits. This was properly done the morning after the weekly Shabbat that followed Chag Matzot, the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the 26th of Aviv.
    The Master Yahushua stayed to teach His talmidim / disciples for 40 days after His resurrection, and then we come to the events of Acts 1, when the Master ascended to our Abba, but what day does that add up to? The 1st day that He was with them was the 19th of Aviv, so figure 5 weeks plus 5 days makes 40 days. So He was with them for the Shabbats of the 19th and the 26th, which was the 1st of the omer count, for Shabbats of the 3rd, 10th, 17th & 24th of the 2nd Chodesh, plus 5 days. which comes to the 29th, Yom Shishi / Day 6 of the 6th week. Counting from Firstfruits, it’s the 33rd day in the counting of the blessed omer of barley.
    The Jewish people call that Lag BaOmer, a day of celebration, though they place it on the 18th of the 2nd month, because they start the omer count on the 16th. Here’s what Wikipedia says about it at (link at the end of the post):
    Lag BaOmer (Hebrew: ל״ג בעומר‎), also Lag BaOmer, is a Jewish holiday celebrated on the 33rd day of the Counting of the Omer, which occurs on the 18th day of the Hebrew month of Iyar.
    This day marks the hillula (celebration, interpreted by some as anniversary of death) of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai, a Mishnaic sage and leading disciple of Rabbi Akiva in the 2nd century, and the day on which he revealed the deepest secrets of kabbalah in the form of the Zohar (Book of Splendor), a landmark text of Jewish mysticism. This association has spawned several well-known customs and practices on Lag BaOmer, including the lighting of bonfires, pilgrimages to the tomb of Bar Yochai in the northern Israeli town of Meron, and various customs at the tomb itself.
    But now, praise Yahuwah, we have a whole new reason to celebrate Lag BaOmer, because it is the day that our Master Yahushua ascended to our Abba, and He and the 144,000 have been there ever since, awaiting the time when more of the Firstfruits of the Kingdom—US!—will join them in the Master Yahushua’s Presence, working with Him in building Yahuwah Avinu’s Kingdom for all the endless ages—le-olam-va-ed, in the Name of the Master Yahushua, omein.
