Do we dishonor Yeshua by keeping a True Passover? Hello! Our pitiful Christian traditions and understandings concerning the scriptures are going to get most people destroyed in the coming last days. We can never bring dishonor to Jesus, or anyone else, by keeping the very words that he and all of Yehovah’s men are trying to make flesh! So many of our understandings are just plain perverted. Perhaps this is why the Gentiles will come to the Father in the last days and say “Surely our fathers have inherited lies.”
O Yehovah, my strength and my fortress, My refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come to You from the ends of the earth and say, “Surely our fathers have inherited lies, worthlessness and unprofitable things.” (Jer 16:19)
We, Israel, those who were scattered all over the earth because of our gross disobedience to the Creator’s ways, are not yet back in the land!
“Therefore, behold, the days are coming,” says Yehovah, “that they shall no longer say, ‘As Yehovah lives who brought up Israel’s seed [perversely known as “the children of Israel”] from the land of Egypt,’ but, ‘As Yehovah lives who brought up and led the descendants of the house of Israel [all Israel] from the north country and from all the countries where I had driven them.’ And they shall dwell in their own land.” (Jer 23:7-8)
Has this happened? I don’t hear anyone telling this wonderful story about the faithfulness and great power of our Elohim.
It appears to me that we, those dear ones who are now repenting of our ways and beginning to learn and do only our father’s ways, are the dead bones of Ezekiel 37 which are beginning to come together.
Also He said to me, “Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, ‘Thus says my master, Yehovah: “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live.” ‘ ” So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army. Then He said to me, “Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. They indeed say, ‘Our bones are dry, our hope is lost, and we ourselves are cut off!’ Therefore prophesy and say to them, ‘Thus says my master. Yehovah: “Behold, O My people, I will open your graves and cause you to come up from your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. Then you shall know that I am Yehovah, when I have opened your graves, O My people, and brought you up from your graves. I will put My spirit in you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land. Then you shall know that I, Yehovah, have spoken it and performed it,” says Yehovah.’ ” (Eze 37:9-14)
What Yehovah says, He will do. We are all still in our Egypt and spread out to the four corners of the earth.
The instructions that Yehovah gave to Israel’s seed were that they were to select a lamb on the 10th day and then kill it on the 14th day. No priest, no sons of Aaron had any responsibilities on this day except to kill THEIR lamb or goat for their family. They needed no temple, no tabernacle or camp. But four times in His instructions concerning Passover our He says that we will do this forever or throughout our generations or both. See Exo 12:14, 17, 24 & 42. Four times, Yehovah repeated Himself – Do you think that He might be trying to make a point? Where else in Torah does Yehovah repeat Himself four times in one chapter?
Yehovah says that the man who turns from his wickedness and “keeps all My statutes, and does what is lawful and right, he shall surely live.”
“But if a wicked man turns from all his sins which he has committed, keeps all My statutes, and does what is lawful and right, he shall surely live; he shall not die. None of the transgressions which he has committed shall be remembered against him; because of the righteousness which he has done, he shall live. (Eze 18:21-22)
This verse is talking about salvation. I do not equate the Born Again experience with salvation; there is a difference between the one born in the land man [the Ezrach] and the stranger [the Ger, the one circumcised in his heart] who dwells with them, even though there is one law for both.
You shall have one law for him who sins unintentionally, for him who is native-born (Ezrach) among the children of Israel and for the stranger (Ger) who dwells among them. ‘But the person who does anything presumptuously, whether he is native-born or a stranger, that one brings reproach on Yehovah, and he shall be cut off from among his people. (Num 15:29-30)
The stranger (Ger) who dwells among you (the Ezrach) shall be to you as one born among you, and you shall love him as yourself; for you were strangers (Gerim) in the land of Egypt: I am Yehovah, your Elohim. (Lev 19:34)
No one is really “saved” anyway. We simply repent and enter the way of life and work out our salvation with fear and trembling. We can leave the way of life by seeing more truth and not embracing it or by leaving Torah all together.
“But when a righteous man [the Ezrach or the Ger] turns away from his righteousness and commits iniquity, and does according to all the abominations that the wicked man does, shall he live? All the righteousness which he has done shall not be remembered; because of the unfaithfulness of which he is guilty [these are the thing that the man was supposed to do, but didn’t] and the sin which he has committed [these are the things that the man did that he should not have], because of them he shall die. (Eze 18:24)
We all SAY we are “Born Again;” I said it for years. But what are we born into and how does that birth take place? During Passover week when Yeshua talked to Nicodemus about being Born Again, he did not understand it. Yeshua rebuked him for being a teacher of ISRAEL and not understanding this second birth. This is what my “Born Again” series is all about. Especially part 2.
If Yehovah does not change, and He doesn’t! If His word endures forever, and it does! Then we, His people, have kept a Passover since Adam. Could this be why Yehovah did not like the offering that Cain brought [his Seder], but accepted Abel’s offering?
We will keep Passover in the Millennial kingdom as well, just read Ezekiel 45.
And when the Father raises up His banners [the 144,000] in the wilderness all around the globe, EVERYONE who joins themselves to those men WILL keep an Exodus 12 Passover or get kicked out of the camp.
Then Yehovah spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to Israel’s seed, saying: ‘If anyone of you or your posterity is unclean because of a corpse, or is far away on a journey, he may still keep Yehovah’s Passover. On the fourteenth day of the second month, at twilight, they may keep it. They shall eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. They shall leave none of it until morning, nor break one of its bones. ACCORDING TO ALL THE ORDINANCES OF THE PASSOVER they shall keep it. BUT the man who is clean and is not on a journey, and ceases [stops doing what he was doing] to keep the Passover, that same person shall be cut off from among his people, because he did not bring the offering of Yehovah at its appointed time; THAT MAN SHALL BEAR HIS SIN. (Num 9:9-13)
Will people be saved who are not born a second time through keeping an Exodus 12 Passover? Maybe, maybe not, but if they are, they will be among the least in Yehovah’s kingdom.
I guess my PRIMARY work is to help prepare those 144,000 select and separated men that will lead the masses in the wilderness and, at the same time, help everyone I come in contact with learn Yehovah’s ways better. Those 144,000 men WILL be born in the land [Ezrach] Israel since there are 12,000 from each tribe.
These men sing as it were, a new song; but this song is ancient, it is the song of righteousness that has been sung since the beginning of time. Yeshua, Paul, Peter, James, John and Jude all taught this everlasting song. Yeshua even made it flesh, just as we should, if we are to manifest Yehovah’s image and kingdom in the earth.
We must know and understand the precepts of Yehovah’s word if we are to begin to understand His message.
“Whom will he teach knowledge? And whom will he make to understand the message? Those just weaned from milk? Those just drawn from the breasts? For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept, Line upon line, line upon line, Here a little, there a little.” (Isa 28:9-10)
The “Born Again” series is so very important if we want to first become a Ger and then, at Passover, become as one born in the land [the Ezrach] just like our forefathers did just before they left Egypt and their sons did just after they crossed through the Jordan.
And when a stranger [Ger] dwells with you [the Ezrach] and wants to keep the Passover to Yehovah, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; AND HE SHALL BECOME AS A NATIVE OF THE LAND [an Ezrach] For no uncircumcised person shall eat it. One law shall be for the native-born [the Ezrach] and for the stranger [the Ger] who dwells among you.” (Exo 12:48-49)
Keeping a True Passover has nothing to do with Yeshua/Jesus and everything to do with becoming Yehovah man and having His sin forgiven.
BUT the man who is clean and is not on a journey, and ceases [stops doing what he was doing] to keep the Passover, that same person shall be cut off from among his people, because he did not bring the offering of Yehovah at its appointed time; THAT MAN SHALL BEAR HIS SIN. (Num 9:13)
Just like Yehovah and His word, nothing has or can changed!
Perhaps it was the Passover lamb that was killed when the prodigal son returned; it is the Passover lamb that will bring us back into a correct relationship with our Creator.
Either Yehovah and His ways do not change in your life or they do. In my life, they do not!
Dishonor Yeshua with Passover?
Passover is not something that we have to do – it is something that we get to do. We get to become as one born in the land and have our sins taken away.
And when a stranger (Ger) dwells with you and wants [not has] to keep the Passover to Yehovah, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall become as ‘one born in the land‘ [an Ezrach]. For no uncircumcised person shall eat it. (Exo 12:48)
BUT the man who is clean and is not on a journey, and ceases [stops doing what he was doing] to keep the Passover, that same person shall be cut off from among his people, because he did not bring Yehovah’s offering at its appointed time; THAT MAN SHALL BEAR HIS SIN. (Num 9:13)
What Yehovah has shown me in the words that Yeshua made flesh [the law and the Prophets] I have shared with all that would listen. I have had to give up everything to follow Him; my citizenship in this world and all other covenants I had including my SSN and Driver’s License to be 100% HIS through complete obedience to Him. I was a harlot and now I am a virgin for Him. Those decisions have cost me my wife and my family, my house, my friends, everything!
Would I go back? Not a chance – Yehovah has shown me too much light to ever return to my old ways and kingdom.
Yehovah’s peace to you!
