Feast of UB 2016 Volume 1: Jesus Took The Passover and Then Became The Passover

"The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world."  John 1:29

"And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!"  John 1:36


Ever wonder why Jesus is called the Lamb of God?

Lambs are sacrificial animals, they will walk straight up to the slaughter although every animal before them is being killed. Lambs are, by the way, the only animals that behave in such a way.

What About Jesus:
"He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth:" Isaiah 53:7

When did Jesus behave this way?
On the Passover!
Because our God is a God of knowledge (1 Samuel 2:3), He has set this thing up so that when He came in the flesh, He could partake of the Passover, and become the Passover.
How?
In the beginning Jesus created the days in such a manner that most people would not recognize today.

"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

And the evening and the morning were the third day.

And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the 
were the sixth day." Genesis 1:1, 5, 7-8, 13, 19, 23, 31

God set the precedent in the beginning; A day is made up of the evening and the morning (in that order).  Therefore the day begins at night (sunset).  According to the Bible the evening comes before the morning.

Now, let's look at Christ:
"And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said unto his disciples, Ye know that after two days is the feast of the passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified."  Matthew 26:1-2

Jesus foretold that He was to be crucified during the Passover.

"Now the first day of the feast of unleavened bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the passover? 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. And the disciples did as Jesus had appointed them; and they made ready the passover.Matthew 26:17-19

Jesus disciples did NOT  prepare communion, they were NOT making ready the Last Supper, they made ready the PASSOVER!

And after their preparation, when did they begin to eat?

"Now when the even was come, he sat down with the twelve."  Matthew 26:20
After that the even came, they can begin the Passover.

"And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom." Matthew 26:26-29

Notice He didn't say I won't eat again, He said He won't drink of the fruit of the vine again (drink wine).  Immediately afterwards, Jesus prayed and then was betrayed.

"Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray me. And while he yet spake, lo, Judas, one of the twelve, came, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and elders of the people. Now he that betrayed him gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast."  Matthew 26:46-48


From this moment Jesus began behaving like a sheep led to the slaughter.

"And the Lord spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying,  Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel saying, in the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house.  Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats: And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening."  Exodus 12:1,3,5-6


Notice who needs to kill the Lamb... the Whole assembly of the Congregation.

Did this happen to Jesus?

"Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles. If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation. And one of them, named Caiaphas, being the high priest that same year, said unto them, Ye know nothing at all, Nor consider that it is expedient for us, that one man should die for the people, and that the whole nation perish not. And this spake he not of himself: but being high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for that nation; And not for that nation only, but that also he should gather together in one the children of God that were scattered abroad. Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death."  John 11:47-53

The entire nation, and God's children scattered abroad!


"And Pilate, when he had called together the chief priests and the rulers and the people, Said unto them, Ye have brought this man unto me, as one that perverteth the people: and, behold, I, having examined him before you, have found no fault in this man touching those things whereof ye accuse him: No, nor yet Herod: for I sent you to him; and, lo, nothing worthy of death is done unto him. I will therefore chastise him, and release him. (For of necessity he must release one unto them at the feast.) And they cried out all at once<red>, saying, Away with this man, and release unto us Barabbas: (Who for a certain sedition made in the city, and for murder, was cast into prison.) Pilate therefore, willing to release Jesus, spake again to them. But they cried, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. And he said unto them the third time, Why, what evil hath he done? I have found no cause of death in him: I will therefore chastise him, and let him go. And they were instant with loud voices, requiring that he might be crucified. And the voices of them and of the chief priests prevailed.<CriMsON> And Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they required." Luke 23:13-24

Now in the daytime, the same day, Jesus is being sacrificed by all the people of Israel (Chief Priest and Pharasees).

"And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst. And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost. Now when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man. And all the people that came together to that sight, beholding the things which were done, smote their breasts, and returned."  Luke 23:44-48

May the Lord add a blessing to the celebration of His HIgh Sabbath!

Feast of Unleavened Bread Volume 2: ¿Abraham's Communion?

Many Christians confuse the Passover with a sacrament that is commonly called communion. The word communion is used in the Bible in refrence to Jesus and the Passover?

The word communion is defined as:  The sharing or exchanging of intimate thoughts and feelings, especially when the exchange is on amental or spiritual level.

Most of the world in general, and Christian in particular have no idea that Abraham took part in communion before Moses, David, or any of Jesus 12 disciples.
In fact the bread and wine that Jesus blessed and shared with his Apostles was a type of re-make of an event that took place approx. 1500 years prior (John 8:52-59).
Let's check it out:

"And it came to pass in the days of Amraphel king of Shinar, Arioch king of Ellasar, chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of nations;  That these made war with Bera king of Sodom, and with Birsha king of Gomorrah, Shinab king of Admah, shemeber king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela, which Zoar.  All these were joined together in the vale of Siddim, which is the salt sea. Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, andi in the thirteenth year they rebelled.  And in the fourteenth year came Chedorlaaomer, and the kings that were with him, andm smotede the Pephaims in Ashteorth Karnaim, and the Zuzims in Ham, and the Emims in Shaveh Kiriathaim...
And they took all the goods of Sodom and Gomorrah, and all their victuals, and went their way.  And they took Lot, Abram's brother's son, who dwelt in Sodom, and his goods, and departed." Genesis 14:1-5, 11-12

Once upon a time their was a great war between 9 kings. Abraham's nephew lived in a city of one of the loser kings territory: Sodom.  Lot (Abram's nephew) was taken captive.
 

"And when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his trained servants, born in his own house, three hundred and eighteen, and pursued them unto Dan. And he divided himself against them, he and his servants, by night, and smote them, and pursued them unto Hobah, which is on the left hand of Damascus. And he brought back all the goods, and also brought again his brother Lot, and his goods, and the women also, and the people. And the king of Sodom went out to meet him after his return from the slaughter of Chedorlaomer, and of the kings that were with him, at the valley of Shaveh, which is the king's dale."  Genesis 14:14-17


After Abram and his household servants accomplished what 4 kings couldn't (food 4 thought) the king of Sodom came out to meet Abram.  And another king also came out to met him:

"And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God."  Genesis 14:18

Melchizedek king of Salem communed with Abram for he brought forth bread and wine.   Why?  Because Melchizedek was the priest of the Most High God!
Being that this was a communion and Melchizedek was the a priest this church service also ended (notice it actually happens at the end of the interaction) with Father Abraham paying tithes.

"And he blessed him, and said, Blessed be Abram of the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth:  And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him TITHES of all."  Genesis 14:19-20


FOOD 4 THOUGHT (You do the dishes):  Abraham, the first one in the Bible to have taken communion.
To find out who this Melchizedek is, check back for Volume 2.

May the Lord add a blessing to tthe reading of His Word;

Save YOURSELVES (because Jesus Can't)

Therefore, let all the house of Israel know for a surety, that God hath [a]made him both Lord, and Christ, this Jesus, I say, whom ye have crucified.
37 Now when they heard it, they were pricked in their hearts, and said unto Peter and the other Apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?
38 [b]Then Peter said unto them, Amend your lives, and be baptized every one of you in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins: and ye shall receive the gift of the holy Ghost.
39 For the [c]promise is made unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
40 [d]And with many other words he besought and exhorted them, saying, Save yourselves from this [froward] generation.    Acts 2:35-40   1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)



Satan has deceived the world, Jesus will NOT save the world!


However, if the anyone in the world Is saved, it will be through Jesus Christ! (John 3:17)

From the very beginning the choice was given to Adam to eat of every tree, including the tree of life except only don't deal with the tree of knowledge of good and evil. The choice was again a presented at the nation of Israel's inception, When life and death were both put on the table, and the freedom to make the choice was afforded us. (Deuteronomy 30:14-15)


When the Apostle Peter was preaching, during the Day of Pentecost he give very simple instructions to those who feel guilty because of the death of Christ:   "Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation." Acts 2:38-40

With soo many doctrines and denominations floating around (over 30,000), how could one possibly know which part of the denomination is inconsistent?


"Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." ‭2 Timothy‬ ‭2‬:‭15‬

It is through the Word that you save YOURSELF. Jesus is the Word and through him you have the power to save YOURSELF!



How?

The 10 Commandments of course...

"Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city." Revelation ‭22‬:‭14‬ 

The same commandments spoken in Deuteronomy 30. So that you may have a right to eat of the tree of life thru which you are saved.

May the Lord add a blessing to the doing of His Commandments, in Jesus name.
