Yâhuwshúa` would not have told us to follow him if we could not actually do so.

We get this Passover with sandals on our feet, staff in hand and a rope or belt around our waist. This symbolizes our willingness to quickly leave Egypt (the bonds of this world) and the sin which enslaves us.

in "guarding" His ways, we preserve our ability to hear and live as our true selves, fulfilling the calling for which we were carefully and specifically designed.

    The Passover Seder 2014 The Passover Seder 2014 Document Transcript

    • Zekeniam Y’sra’al ( teacher of Y’sra’al) Sherut haRitztzuy (the ministry of reconciliation) by whom we have now received the ( Atonement) Reconciliation of the Dvar HaRitztzuy Let this day be a day of reconciliation and regeneration [“EHYEH ASHER EHYEH”] ( HaYaH (He was), Howeh (He is), and Yihyeh (He will be). I AM
    • Father and son are one My Memorial for generation after generation.” Shemot 3:13-16 This is MY NAME for ever, Yâ-hwuah, Aluahiym of your father’s Abraham, Yitzchak [Isaac], and Ya’aqob [Jacob], has sent me to you. This is my name forever, and this is my memorial for generation to generation." and I appeared to Abraham, to Yitzchak, andto Ya’aqob as hashadday [the almighty]. and my name, Ya-hwuah, was not well known (famous) to them. The ministry of reconciliation Message of Reconciliation Torah sh’Bichtav (Written Torah) Who hath ears to hear, let him hear? “Sola Scriptura” (the Scriptures alone is authoritative for faith)
    • (in His Name) [Yah -hoo-Wah] is the Name of the Creator. (Yâhuwshúa`) is His Son [Al-u-heem - ALHYM] means "Mighty Ones“ or "Power" means Set-apart, Pure. (Qodesh) also means "Set-apart" Raukh (Spirit) is the Ibry (Hebrew) name for His "Presence", pictured as the Counselor, Helper, and Advocate, the One Who "proceeds from the Father"
    • Tehillim 27:5 For in the day of trouble He will keep me secretly in His booth. In the covering of His Tent He will hide me. On a Rock He raises me up. is for you too! Scripture speaks of a secret place where we can simply go, be alone, be protected, pray, and hear from Yahuahshua. Knowing there is such a place is a matter of faith. Going back time and again, that's a matter of building a relationship. You need not have an advanced degree in any subject, need not have memorized Scripture from beginning to end, but instead be aware the Yâ-hwuah of Y’sra’al has a place for each Jew and Gentile who will open their minds and hearts to Him. Mt 6:5-8
    • When you pray, you shall not be as the role-fakers, for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Most certainly, I tell you, they have received their reward. Don't be like...: Shem-Tov Heb. adds "Do not raise your voice" before this phrase, and "with haughty speech" after "pray". Be seen: Aram., manifest; i.e., show off. For example, Rabbi Yannai was known for having been observed saying his prayers in the public streets of Sepphoris (Tsippori, of which Natsarith was a suburb at this time), then advancing four cubits (six feet/two meters) to make the "supplementary prayer". (Jer. Ber. 8c, cited by Edersheim) But you, when you pray, enter into your inner chamber, and having shut your door, pray to your Father Who is in secret, and your Father Who sees in secret shall reward you openly. Innermost storeroom: or closet: "a chamber on the ground floor or interior of an Oriental house, generally used for storage or privacy." (Strong) Shem-Tov Heb., your couch, i.e., bedroom. Yâhuwshúa, in his character-istic hyperbole, etches an unforgettable image on our minds. Aram., hold your door, a you would if doing anything else not intended to be seen; Old Syriac: shut the door on your face; i.e., be out of sight so as not to use one's religion for personal ostentation. The other side of it is that the partition formed by placing one's prayer shawl (talith) over one's head shuts out the rest of the world from one's thoughts while praying. (Moshe Kopinsky) In secret: another exaggeration (since public prayers are often
    • permitted in Scripture) to make the point that it is Ya-hwuah, not men, to Whom we are speaking. (See Luk. 18:10ff for a similar teaching.) In praying, don’t use vain repetitions, as the Gentiles do; for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Much speaking: compare Qoheleth/Eccles. 5:2. Gentiles: Shem-Tov Heb., heretics (minim), a term oddly enough used most frequently to refer to Yâhuwshúa’’s followers! Therefore don’t be like them, don't you see that your Father knows what things you need before you ask Him. Ya-hwuah answers before we call. (Yesh. 65:24) Heb. makes it a question: Don't you see that your Father knows...? Do not be more elaborate than necessary; Ya-hwuah does not need explanations for our heart cries. The truth in reality is visited in this secret place AND must be shared by those who will live or else ... they will perish ... in darkness. It is written Lu 11:33 “No one, when he has lit a Lamp, puts it in a cellar or under a basket, but on a stand, that those who come in may see the Light.
    • Tehillim 119:105 Your Word is a Lamp to my feet, and a Light (aur) for my path. The lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore when your eye is good, your whole body is also full of Light; but when it is evil, your body also is full of darkness. Therefore see whether the light that is in you isn’t darkness. If therefore your whole body is full of Light, having no part dark, it shall be wholly full of Light, as when the Lamp with its bright shining gives you Light.” With this in mind, heart soul and strength let us study together in the Raukh And now brothers and sisters Come out of the secret place bearing light! Who see it from afar. The Secret Place, here, shines a bit of light so many can see from afar. The topics we have chosen are addressed to Jew and Gentile together. We do this because that is what the Bible does. This opens the window to make more sense of what Scripture tells us!
    • In the secret place is plain language, something simple to read. This is a mere starting place for deeper consideration. A Copy of the scriptures for everyone
    • We get this Passover with sandals on our feet, staff in hand and a rope or belt around our waist. This symbolizes our willingness to quickly leave Egypt (the bonds of this world) and the sin which enslaves us. According to scripture .It is wise to have a regular meal prior to the service When therefore you assemble yourselves together, it is not the Malak's supper that you eat. For in your eating each one takes his own supper first. One is hungry, and another is drunken. What, don’t you have houses to eat and to drink in? Or do you despise Yâ-hwuah’s assembly, and put them to shame who don’t have? What shall I tell you? Shall I praise you? In this I don’t praise you. For I received from Ya-hwuah that which also I delivered to you, that the Malak Yâhuwshúa` on the night in which He was betrayed took bread. When He had given thanks, He broke it, and said, “Take, eat. This is My body, which is broken for you. Do this in memory of Me .”In the same way He also took the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. Do this, as often as you drink, in memory of Me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Malak’s death until He comes. Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks Yâ-hwuah’s cup in a way unworthy of Ya-hwuah will be guilty of the body and the blood of Ya-hwuah. (Ya-hwuah has no blood or body except that of Yâhuwshúa`).But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread, and drink of the cup. For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy way eats and drinks judgment to himself, if he doesn’t discern Yâ-hwuah’s body (Yâhuwshúa`/or possibly the Assembly). For this cause many among you are weak and sickly, and not a few sleep. For if we discerned ourselves, we wouldn’t be judged. But
    • when we are judged by our Malak (Yâhuwshúa`), we are really disciplined, that we may not be condemned with the world. Therefore, my brothers, when you come together to eat, wait for one another. But if anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, lest your coming together be for judgment. The rest I will set in order whenever I come There are a number of references in scripture which show that the washing of the feet was a common act on entering the tent or house after a journey. Then Ya-hwuah appeared [yera'] to him by the oaks of Mamre, as he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day. He lifted up his eyes and looked, and saw that three men stood opposite him. When he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself to the earth, and said, “My Malaks, if now I have found favor in your sight, please don’t go away from your servant. Now let a little water be fetched, wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree .I will get a morsel of bread so you can refresh your heart. After that you may go your way, now that you have come to your servant.” Then: linked to his having circumcised himself, his son, his 318 trainees, and any sons they had. Being at least 14 years after he had taken them to rescue Lot, a conservative estimate would place this at probably 1,000 men and boys. In other words, he had done his part to initiate the covenant, proving his faith genuine through his actions, so Ya-hwuah returns in a fuller measure to carry out His next step. Every covenant has “ifs”, and though it offends our modern sensitivities, Ya-hwuah also showed that He had confidence
    • in Abraham simply by asking him to do this. He also will not ask of us anything that is impossible. Deut. 30:10ff you shall obey the Voice of Ya-hwuah your Aluahiym, to keep His Commandments and His statutes which are written in this scroll of the Torah; if you turn to Ya-hwuah your Aluahiym with all your heart, and with all your being. All of these promises for the latter day still contain a conditional clause. For this Commandment which I command you this day, it is not too hard for you, neither is it far off. Contrary to what the corrupt shepherds taught us in order to keep us from the treasure Ya-hwuah had for us, the Torah is not impossible to keep, and it is not deadly. Christianity, which says no one can keep it, is partially right; no individual can, but a whole people together can! Moshe has been saying in many ways, “You can do this! It isn’t too hard!” 1 Yochanan 5:3—in the Renewed Covenant--agrees that "His commandments are not burdensome." Yâhuwshúa compared the "easy yoke" that he "lays upon us" with the heavy burdens the P'rushim (Pharisees) were laying on people and not lifting a finger to help them with. (Matt. 11:29-30; 23:4ff)
    • The commandments of men we cannot always keep up with. Their overextension of the Torah is where the problem lies, not in the Torah itself. What is written in it (v. 10) is all we are responsible to obey. A yoke gives us control over a burden and distributes the weight both over the whole body so it will not be so difficult, and allows more than one beast to share the same burden, making it much lighter on both. His yoke is meant to be shared by all Israel. A community can keep His commandments where individuals cannot. The more we practice it, the more it becomes what we want to do, not what we “have to do”. We should not say we do not need to keep it since Yâhuwshúa already did; He made it even more possible for us to carry out. How did we get from a command about how soon to offer a firstborn animal to “You may not eat cheeseburgers”? Religion complicates things, thereby straying further from its intent, whereas the Torah is meant to be understandable to everyone. Yes, there are deeper aspects to it, but the deeper we dig, the more it demands simplicity to be applicable everywhere. If it is practicable only by an erudite few, we are missing the point. Not far away: It is even possible to keep our eyes on Yerushalayim from anywhere in the world with the web camera! Knowledge is much easier to acquire for ordinary people than in ancient times. It is not in heaven, that you should say, “Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it to us, and make us to hear it, that we may do it?” in heaven; it is not a mystery religion. There goes more Christian theology out the window. The Kingdom is here on this earth, and the commands have to do with that.
    • Neither is it beyond the sea, that you should say, “Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it to us, and make us to hear it, that we may do it?” Even before we get into the Land, we can practice it, if we know how to listen. Exile is no excuse. But the Word is very near to you, in your mouth, and in your heart, that you may do it. Was this not written specifically for us, who are returning from exile after having been told that we would never be able to do this? Torah is not complicated, impractical, or unknowable. It is about the things that are right in front of you, the things you talk about, the things that are most important to you, not things foreign to us, except that we have estranged ourselves from it, so for it to be reintroduced, it has to be ground up like baby food—but applesauce is not the same as an apple! When our true neighbors— those of the same flock—are in close proximity, we can practice Torah. We just have to be in the right context. How can we obey the commands to restore a borrowed item we have broken or what has gone astray from its owner, if he is nowhere near us to lose it or lend it to us? Right in your mouth: When you learn to speak Hebrew, the Torah becomes much less complicated. It is a straightforward language that speaks in concrete, not abstract, terms. It is not meant to be spiritualized; that is what gave the church its inordinate power to keep knowledge from the rest of the people. In Hebrew, “spirit” (raukh) simply means “wind” or “breath”—i.e., something that is very real, proven by its effect on other things, but is invisible—like love, hate, or commitment. Not
    • imaginary—that is what doctrines are; they must be taught as propaganda because they cannot be proven. We have this insatiable drive to see the spiritual. But to see something invisible, we have to paint it, and by doing so we color it, and thus redefine it, and thus what are studying is no longer what it originally was, just as we have to kill an animal to dissect it, and at that point it is no longer animated. Behold, I have set before you this day life and good, and death and evil; After all those curses, it should be a "no-brainer" which one to choose, yet still we chose death! Truth is stranger than fiction! in that I command you this day to love Ya-hwuah your Aluahiym, to walk in His ways, and to keep His Commandments and His statutes and His ordinances, that you may live and multiply, and that Ya-hwuah your Aluahiym may bless you in the Land where you go in to possess it. He tells us to guard every aspect of the Torah, so there is no room to wiggle out of any of them. It is the choosing (see v. 19) that allows us to have it written on our hearts. It is not our own personal lives we must choose (doing that is what got us into trouble), but the life of Y’sra’al. But if your heart turns away, and you will not hear, but shall be drawn away, and worship other mighty ones, and serve them; Note the progression in how our various members respond: If our heart turns off our hearing, our feet will be pulled away by an outside source. Idolatry is the main issue, because Ya-hwuah wants relationship with us more than any of the details, though they all
    • add to it and there is no contradiction. But the big issue is that we are with Him wholeheartedly. He desires obedience more than offerings. (1 Shmu’el 15:22) If we "guard" His ways, we preserve our ability to hear and live as our true selves, fulfilling the calling for which we were carefully and specifically designed. But trying to keep the Torah for its own sake, rather than for Yâ-hwuah’s and Israel’s (not one or the other), can make it our Aluahiym . We do not serve the words or the doing, but the purpose. Even if we kept every detail to the letter, if it is for selfish reasons—like personal salvation—our righteousness will not surpass that of the P’rushim Yahshua criticized. Make no mistake; the Torah is the key to our return. But it is a tool, a means to the end, not the end in itself. I declare to you this day, that you shall surely perish; you shall not prolong your days in the Land, where you pass over the Yarden to go in to possess it. Does it mean that this time, if we turn away from habitual obedience, we will perish altogether, and that there will not be another “doubling of the sentence” (YirmeYahuw 16:18) or “seven times” (Lev. 26:18)? This should deter us indeed, but still, the Northern Kingdom did completely perish at one time, and yet Yahwuah has restored it. True repentance is always a “game change”. I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse: therefore choose life, that you may live, This calling of the most potent witnesses available is a common aspect of a covenant-cutting ceremony. Survive: not just for its own sake, but for a purpose:
    • you and your seed; to love Ya-hwuah your Aluahiym, to obey His Voice, and to cleave to Him; for He is your life, and the length of your days; that you may dwell in the Land which Ya-hwuah swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Yitshaq, and to Ya'aqob, to give them. This defines what life is and what love is and is not. Hold tightly: the term used of a man "cleaving" to his wife (Gen. 2:24), for Israel is Yâ-hwuah’s bride. Those who do return and have all the curses that were on our ancestors removed will rebuild the ancient places that were ruined! (Yeshayahu 61:1-10) He is your life: It is not His provisions per se, but Ya-hwuah Himself that sustains us (8:3), and we live only because He chooses to remember us. How can those to whom He says, "I never knew you", continue to exist? If Yahwuah expels someone from His memory, where can he be? It would be as if he had never existed. Life is not a qualitative thing that one can measure; we can only see evidence that it is present or departed. It can also mean being revived, for we have another occasion to not only rejoin the commonwealth of Israel from which we cut ourselves off. Length of your days: Many of Torah’s commands simply help us to avoid an early death through wisely staying out of the way of trouble. Yâhuwshúa` would not have told us to follow him if we could not actually do so. Therefore Mamre means "strength", setting the tone for this passage, in which the man whose greatest strength is lovingkindness or mercy needs to operate in the area of judgment, bringing his personality to a place of balance and wholeness. The tent: it does not say "his tent". On the literal level it may have been,
    • but on a deeper level, a tent is often symbolic of a place of spiritual learning. Sitting is a Hebrew idiom for study; the word “Yeshiva”—a Jewish seminary—is based on the word for “sit”. Ya-hwuah appeared to: or “Ya-hwuah was perceived by”. Being focused on Yahwuah, he had a deeper level of Raukhually insight. "Rest" here denotes leaning against, trusting in, or supporting oneself upon. Since it is “the tree”, not just “a tree”, it also refers to Yâhuwshúa` execution stake. He is teaching them the "Gospel": after we repent, we find rest under "the tree of strength”. Entering his rest is also an idiom for the Sabbath Hebrews 4 Yâ-hwuah’s promise of entering His place of rest still stands, so we ought to tremble with fear that some of you might fail to get there. For this Besorah--that Ya-hwuah has prepared a place of rest--has been announced to us just as it was to them. But it did them no good because they didn't believe what Ya-hwuah told them. For only we who believe can enter His place of rest. As for those who didn't believe, Ya-hwuah said, "In My anger I made a vow: `They will never enter My place of rest,' " even though His place of rest has been ready since the disruption of the world. We know it is ready because the Scriptures mention the seventh day, saying, "On the seventh day Ya-hwuah rested from all His work." But in the other passage Ya-hwuah said, "They will never enter My place of rest." So Yâ-hwuah’s rest is there for people to enter. But those who formerly heard the Besorah failed to enter because they disobeyed Ya-hwuah. So Ya-hwuah set another time for entering His place of rest, and that time is today. Ya-hwuah announced this through Dawiyd a long time later in the words
    • already quoted: "Today you must listen to His voice. Don't harden your hearts against Him." This new place of rest was not the land of Kena'an, where Yahuwshua led them. If it had been, Ya-hwuah would not have spoken later about another day of rest. So there still is a Shabbathkeeping (it is therefore the duty of the people of Ya-hwuah to keep the Shabbath.) for the people of Ya-hwuah. For all who enter into Yâ-hwuah’s rest will find rest from their labors, just as Ya-hwuah rested after creating the world. Let us do our best to enter that place of rest. For anyone who disobeys Ya-hwuah, as the people of Y’sra’al did, will fall. (The weekly Shabbath rest is a type of the Millennial seventh-thousandth day rest) Indeed the Word of Ya-hwuah is living and active, sharper than any two edged sword, piercing until it divides soul from Raukh, joints from marrow; it is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Nothing in all creation can hide from Him. Everything is naked and exposed before His eyes. This is the Aluahiym to whom we must render an account. Since, then, we have a great High Priest [Kumrea] who has passed through the heavens, Yâhuwshúa`, the Son of Ya-hwuah; let us hold fast to our confession. For we do not have a High Priest Who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have One Who has in every respect been pressured as we are, yet apart from sin. Let us therefore approach boldly the throne of favor, that we may receive mercy and find favour to help in time of need. The third element is partaking of “one bread”
    • 1 Qorinthians 10:17 As therefore that bread is one, so we, who are many, are one body; for we all partake of that one bread. Which symbolizes a unified congregation: A morsel: not a whole loaf, but a part that is broken off. This strongly hints of Passover, when Yâhuwshúa` stated that broken bread symbolized His body Matt. 26:26, As they were eating, Yâhuwshúa` took bread (artos), gave thanks for it, and broke it. He gave to the talmidim, and said, “Take, eat; this is My body, that "one bread". 1 Sam 25:41 She arose, and bowed herself with her face to the earth, and said, “Behold, your handmaid is a servant to wash the feet of the servants of my Malak This may help us understand why Yâhuwshúa` chose one of the lowliest Of services to demonstrate the importance of humbly serving one another Loukas 7:36-37 One of the Parash invited Him to eat with him. He entered into the Pharash’s house, and sat at the table. Behold, a woman in the city who was a sinner, when she knew that He was reclining in the Pharash’s house, she brought an alabaster jar of ointment. Standing behind at His feet weeping, she began to wet His feet with her tears, and she wiped them with the hair of her head, kissed His feet, and anointed them with the ointment. Now when the Pharash who had invited Him saw it, he said to himself, “This man, if He were a
    • prophet, would have perceived who and what kind of woman this is who touches Him that she is a sinner.” Yâhuwshúa` answered him, “Shim'own, I have something to tell you.” He said, “Teacher, say on.” “A certain lender had two debtors. The one owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. But since they did not have any way to pay it back, he forgave them both. Which of them therefore shall love him most?” Shim'own answered, “He, I suppose, to whom he forgave the most. „He said to him, “You have judged correctly.” Turning to the woman, He said to Shim'own, “Do you see this woman? I entered into your house, and You gave me no water for My feet, but she has wet My feet with her tears, and wiped them with the hair of her head. You gave Me no kiss, but she, since the time I came in, has not ceased to kiss My feet. You didn’t anoint My head with oil, but she has anointed My feet with ointment. Therefore I tell you, her sins, which are many, are pardoned, for she loved much. But to whom little is pardoned, the same loves little.” In Yâhuwshúa` gentle rebuke, we see him encouraging this act of Yahuwchanan 13 where humbleness and service. We see again in Yâhuwshúa` washes the feet of His Disciples on the night of Pesach (Passover) Yahuwchanan 13:1-11 Now before the Festival of the Pesach, Yâhuwshúa`, knowing that His time had come that He would depart from this world to the Father, having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end. During supper, the devil having already put into the heart of Yahuwdah Iscariot, Simon’s son, to hand Him over, Yâhuwshúa`, knowing that the Father had given all things into His hands, and that He had come out and from Ya-hwuah, and was
    • going towards Ya-hwuah, arose from supper, and laid aside His outer garments. He took a towel, and wrapped a towel around His waist. Then He poured water into the basin, and began to wash the taught ones’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel that was wrapped around Him .Then He came to Shim'own Kepha who said to Him, “Malak, do You wash my feet?” Yâhuwshúa` answered him, “You do not know what I am doing now, but you shall understand later.” Kepha said to Him, “You shall never wash my feet!” Yâhuwshúa` answered him, “If I do not wash you, you have no part with Me.” (We are "washed" by the Word) Shim'own Kepha said to Him, “Malak, not my feet only, but also my hands and even my head!” Yâhuwshúa` said to him, “He who has been bathed (skha -to fully immerse oneself - a Pesach command) has no need to wash other than the feet, but is completely clean; and you are clean, but not all of you. ”For He knew him who would hand Him over, therefore He said, “You are not all clean. We see here that Kepha is amazed that Yâhuwshúa` would even want to wash his feet. Because it is such a lowly service, he at first refused to let Yâhuwshúa` wash his feet. But then Yâhuwshúa` says something interesting What could this mean? According to the scriptures Shim'own Kepha said to Him, “Malak, not my feet only, but also my hands and even my head! Yâhuwshúa` said to him, “He who
    • has been bathed (skha -to fully immerse oneself - a Pesach command) has no need to wash other than the feet, but is completely clean; and you are clean, but not all of you. For He knew him who would hand Him over, therefore He said, “You are not all clean. One interpretation would be; We are made clean in our immersion (being immersed in the torah) and immersion we are cleansed, there is a potential of our feet being dirtied by the worlds influence as we walk this journey When we are cleansed in Yâhuwshúa` HaMashiyach, our feet gather the dust of the world and we are in need of rest and cleansing. We as brothers need to bear one another’s burdens, washing each other’s feet in Yâhuwshúa`, helping one another overcome the world, which continually seeks to defile us. Yâhuwshúa` in each one of us cleanses those stains. So the washing of one another’s feet appears to be symbolic of Yâhuwshúa`’s cleansing of those stains. Yâhuwshúa` said “If I do not wash you, you have no part with me” We need Yâhuwshúa`’s Cleansing So when He had washed their feet, put His outer garment back on, and returned again to the table, He said to them, “Do you know what I have done to you? You call Me, ‘Rabbi’ and ‘Malak.’ You say so correctly, for so I AM. If I then, the Malak and the Rabbi, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you also should do as I have done to you .Most certainly I tell you, a servant is not greater than his
    • Malak, neither One Who is sent greater than He Who sent Him. If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them Because Yâhuwshúa` came has a servant to all of us, we have cleansing. It takes the heart of a servant to reach out and cleanse another. In washing of each other’s feet, we learn, we learn and participate in His humble service. At this time, wash one another’s feet. Choose someone in the group to participate in the service with We, has believers are Y’sra’al. Egypt represents the sin laden world and all its glory. We were in bondage, in slavery to the adversary while in our sins, haSatan is the ruler and god of this world, haSatan also tries to destroy the predestinated children of Y’sra’al (us) lest we be large in number. The task Malaks, perhaps symbolic of demons, afflicted those in bondage. We were also afflicted of our sins. Ya-hwuah heard the cry of the children of Y’sra’al who wanted to be delivered from their bondage. Shemot 3:7 Then Ya-hwuah said, “I have surely seen the affliction of My people who are in Mitsrayim, and have heard their cry because of their task Malaks, for I know their sorrows. 3:8 I have come down to snatch them out of the hand of the Mitsrites, [Snatch them out: This is the Ibriy word for the "catching away" in 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17,
    • Because our Malak Yâhuwshúa` will Himself descend from heaven with a mandate and with the voice of the Chief Messenger and with the Qarna/trumpet/shofar of Aluah; and the dead who are in HaMashiyach will first arise.

It shall happen in that day that a great shofar shall be blown; and those who were ready to perish in the land of Ashshuwr, and those who were outcasts in the land of Mitsrayim, shall come; and they shall worship Ya-hwuah in the Qodesh Mountain at Yahrushalom. [cf. YirmeYahuw 23:7-8 Therefore, behold, the days come, says Ya-hwuah, that they shall no more say, As Ya-hwuah lives, Who brought up the children of Y’sra’al. out of the land of Mitsrayim; but, As Ya-hwuah lives, Who brought up and Who led the seed of the House of Y’sra’al. out of the north country, and from all the countries where they have been scattered.

Those of us being protected by the Force of Ya-hwuah, and through persuasion for a rescue ready to be disclosed during a latter feast season! Deuteronomy 32: 42 I will make My arrows drunk with blood. My sword shall devour flesh with the blood of the slain and the captives , from the head of the leaders of the enemy.” We also knew the bondage that sin had brought upon us. We too, cried out to Ya-hwuah, Ya-hwuah delivered us in the same manner as He delivered Y’sra’al from their bondage. Pharaoh did not want to let them go out of Egypt. The same is true of the adversary who does not want us to serve Ya-hwuah but wants us to remain in sin and bondage Pharaoh (haSatan) tries to prevent people from worshipping Ya-hwuah The Egyptians worshipped idols. Ya-hwuah showed his superiority over the dumb idols by sending 10 plagues.
    • With the first plague the water coming from the Nile river turned in to blood for seven days. But pharaoh would not heed them, as Ya-hwuah had predicted. In the same way, Ya-hwuah has revealed to us His superiority over the gods of this world whether they be lusts, pride , drugs, money or whatever sins might come between us and Ya-hwuah. The following plagues were Frogs, Lice, Flies, disease on their animals ,, Boils on man and animals, hail, locust and darkness. In each of the plagues, Ya-hwuah spared the area in Egypt that the Y’Isra’al’ites dwelt in. The last Plague however, was an important one . Moshah said, (plague10.) “This is what Ya-hwuah says: ‘About midnight I will go out into the midst of Mitsrayim, 11:5 and all the firstborn in the land of Mitsrayim shall die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh (the one who sits on his throne), even to the firstborn of the female servant who is behind the mill; and all the firstborn of livestock. 11:6 There shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Mitsrayim, such as there has not been, nor shall be any more. Moshah said, (plague10.) “This is what Ya-hwuah says: ‘About midnight I will go out into the midst of Mitsrayim, and all the firstborn in the land of Mitsrayim shall die, from the firstborn of Par'oh (the one who sits on his throne), even to the firstborn of the female servant who is behind the mill; and all the firstborn of livestock. There shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Mitsrayim, such as there has not been, nor shall be any more. Ya-hwuah told Pharaoh through Moshe Shemot 11: 4-6
    • Moshah said, (plague10.) “This is what Ya-hwuah says: ‘About midnight I will go out into the midst of Mitsrayim, and all the firstborn in the land of Mitsrayim shall die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh (the one who sits on his throne), even to the firstborn of the female servant who is behind the mill; and all the firstborn of livestock. There shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Mitsrayim, such as there has not been, nor shall be any more. Shemot 11:7 But against any of the children of Y’sra’al a dog won’t even bark or move its tongue, against man or animal; that you may know that Ya-hwuah makes a miraculous distinction between the Mitsrites and Y’sra’al. Jewish tradition says that because the dogs remained quiet at this time, Ya-hwuah gave them the gift of being able to sense the angel of death, and the same tradition is extant in Mexico (another nation that places much emphasis on death). Personal anecdotes seem to uphold this idea. But perhaps the dogs were silent because they would not even sense the death angel among those who had gathered as Y’sra’al. Anubis, the Mitsrayimians god of mummification was half-dog (or jackal), half-man, who supposedly assisted in the rites by which the dead were admitted to the underworld. They are depicted as guarding the tombs of Pharaohs. Part of this “distinction” was also to show Mitsrayim that their god of death had no power to protect their firstborn, while He could protect His. (4:22) Man or beast: symbolic of the redeemed and the redeemable; elsewhere in Scripture, dogs are seen as symbolic of the unredeemable, just as Pharaoh had proven to be.
    • Compare Tehillim 22:16, 20, For dogs [the lawless] have surrounded Me. A company of evildoers have enclosed Me. They have pierced My hands and feet .Deliver My being from the sword. My precious life from the power of the dog [the lawless] Where the Tehillimist prays for deliverance from the power of a dog. This is a Tehillim Yâhuwshúa` quoted while dying, so on that level it has a special reference to haSatan. The word for “distinction” here means something that Mitsrayim could not imitate—the typical term for “wonders” beyond man’s reach. This is also a name by which Yâhuwshúa` is referred to Judges. 13:18; The Malak Ya-hwuah said to him, “Why do you ask about My Name, seeing it is Wonderful?” Y’sra’al was poor and downtrodden, while Mitsrayim was powerful, but like the many stories of a prince being willing to give up a great military alliance to marry a commoner whom he loved, Ya-hwuah was willing to part with Mitsrayim in order to redeem Y’sra’al. YashaYahuw 43:3 He pursues them, and passes by safely; He will not go by the way his feet are familiar with. He does not have the same kind of covenant with any other people. Yirm. 31:31
    • Behold, the Days come, says Ya-hwuah, that I shall cut a new (renewed) covenant with the House of Y’sra’al and with the House of Yahuwdah: Ya-hwuah did not make such a distinction between Jews and the “Gentiles” (northern-kingdom Y’Isra’al’ites who had mixed with the nations, Hos. 7:8 Ephrayim, he mixes himself among the nations. Ephrayim is a cake not turned. (half-baked - soft dough on one side burned on the other) Ephrayim: the Aramaic targum comes right and says this is the House of Y’sra’al. Mixing himself: mingling so that the two are confused, indistinguishable from one another; we thus became gentiles. Not turned over: Aramaic, eaten before it is turned. We celebrated who we were without paying the price. Thus we were “half-baked”. Ya-hwuah wants Y’sra’al to be a light to the nations, but we didn’t let Him finish making us mature before we exposed our pearls to the nations, and they trampled them underfoot. Now that we have the rest of the Gospel—that Yâhuwshúa` came to restore all the tribes of Y’sra’al--we are being put back on the griddle so the light they “eat of” will be something kodesh. It is time to be mature, not children. who were returning to Him, because they were now part of Y’sra’al as well. Acts 15:8-9
    • And the Mighty Ones, who knows the heart, testified about them, giving them the Raukh haQadosh, just like he did to us. He made no distinction between us and them, cleansing their hearts by belief. Yâhuwshúa` HaMashiyach is referred to as the “Lamb of Yahwuah”. Even before His ministry, He was spiritually called the Lamb of Ya-hwuah Yahuwchanan 1:29 The next day, he saw Yâhuwshúa` coming to him, and cried out, “Look here! This is Al-Ha'Seh, Aluahiym's, very Own Lamb, Who bears away the sin of the world! (Yahuwchanan was a Lewite Priest and proclaimed Yahuwshua as Yâ-hwuah’s Lamb as is required by Torah of the Pesach Lamb.) Shemoth 34:6 Ya-hwuah passed by before him, and proclaimed, “Ya-hwuah, Yahwuah a merciful and gracious Aluahiym [Mighty One], slow to anger, and abundant in loving kindness and truth, 34:7 keeping loving kindness for thousands, BEARING AWAY perversity and rebellion and sin; but will by no means acquit the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the descendants, and on the descendants' descendants, on the third and on the fourth generation.” ["This releasing and bearing away our sin is nearly always mistranslated “forgive” in establishment translations, which means ACQUIT. For us who believe on His Name, He paid our punishment, bearing away the punishment Himself, further proving He is Ya-hwuah." PS for the Remnant]
    • 1 Kepha 2:24 Who His Own Self bore our sins in His body on the execution stake, that we, having died to sins, might live to righteousness; by Whose wounds trickling with blood you were healed. Bereshiyth 22:8 Abraham said, “Aluahiym will provide Himself, a lamb for a burnt offering, my son.” So they both went together. Aramaic: The Akeida (the binding of Yitzak) showed that Ya-hwuah provided Himself as the life that was in the place of Yizak's – Follow the succession of days: it has prophetic significance. Matithyahu 3:11. I only immerse you in water into repentance, but He who comes after me is mightier than I, Whose sandals I am not worthy to bear. He shall immerse you in fire and the Raukh haQadosh. The Hebrew strongly suggests that the day He was immersed was the inauguration of the 40 days of repentance that precede Yom Kippur (Teshuba). But this must be a later time. (cf. v. 32), probably six months later (2:). [Matt. 3:11 note: Into repentance: i.e., to initiate repentance, for Shem Tob’s version says “in the days of repentance” (t’shubah), i.e., the traditional 40 days immediately preceding Yom Kippur. (This takes on great significance in 4:2.... the 40 day fast of Yâhuwshúa`) Other times in scriptures, Yâhuwshúa` is referred to as “The LAMB”
    • Rev 5:11-12 I saw, and I heard something like a voice of many Messengers circling the throne and the elders; and the number of them was ten thousands of ten thousands, and thousands of thousands; saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the Lamb that has been slaughtered to receive the Power, Wealth, Wisdom, Might, Majestic Splendor, and Blessing, 1 Cor 5 .7 Purge out the old yeast that you may be a new lump, even as you are unleavened. For indeed haMashiyach, our Pesach has been offered in our place. In the washing of one another’s feet, we are preparing our hearts to have the kind of humble heart needed to partake of the HaMashiyach our Passover Shemot 12:1 Ya-hwuah spoke to Moshah and Aharon in the land of Mitsrayim, saying, Shemot 12:2 “This month is the beginning of months to you. It is the first month of the year to you. The first command given to the corporate people of Y’sra’al was "change back to the scriptural base scriptures calendar". The calendar stayed the same for the rest of creation, and indeed the civil calendar of Y’sra’al still begins in what is now the seventh month of
    • the religious calendar. The Ibriy word for year really means “reduplication”, so the last sentence could be read; [This renewal] will be the first of the renewals that will be repeated.

I shall take you one from a city, and two from a clan, and I shall bring you to Tsiyown It shall happen in That Day that a Great Shofar shall be blown; and those who were perishing in the land of Ashshuwr, and those who were outcasts in the land of Mitsrayim, shall come; and they shall worship Ya-hwuah in the Qodesh Mountain at Yahrushalom. and YirmeYahuw 23:7-8 Therefore, behold, the days come, says Ya-hwuah, that they shall no more say, As Ya-hwuah lives, Who brought up the children of Y’sra’al out of

Pray that your flight shall not be in the winter during the rain storm, nor on a Shabbath, for then there shall be great oppression, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, nor ever shall be.

Yash. 27:12-13] He reiterates the promise given in 16:14-15, changing “the descendants of Y’sra’al” to the more specific “seed of the House of Y’sra’al”, that is, the Northern Kingdom in particular, and its physical, not just Raukhually seed. Ya-hwuah did not forsake them and start over with someone else, but has already begun bringing back the very same kodesh race to fulfill the calling that our forefathers left off. Tell us that the exodus will indeed be repeated. Shemot 12:3 Speak to all the congregation of Y’sra’al, saying, ‘On the tenth day of this month, they shall each select for themselves an animal from the flock per ancestral house, that is, one the flock animal per household; Per ancestral house: literally, "For a house of fathers". This is the purpose of the slaughtered Lamb, Yâhuwshúa`—to build a house of living stones for his Father to indwell. The Lamb was not to be from
    • Mitsrayim or imported from anywhere else, just as Yâhuwshúa` was from among the flock of Y’sra’al. Shemot 12:4 And if the household is too little for a flock animal, then he and his neighbor next to his house shall take one according to the number of the souls; according to what everyone can eat you shall make your count for the flock animal. Persons: literally, "souls". How much each one can eat: literally, "man according to the mouth of his eating". Smaller families were to share one lamb so the life of the animal would not be taken and then some of the meat wasted, because they could not take it with them. Shemot 12:5 Your animal from the flock shall be without blemish, a male a year old. You shall take it from the sheep, or from the goats: Shemot 12:6 and you shall watch over it until the fourteenth day of the same month; and the whole assembly of the congregation of Y’sra’al shall kill it at the evening. Watch over it: or observe it, to be sure there were no defects. Yâhuwshúa` was "observed" or inspected by everyone from the day of the "triumphal entry" until Passover: the P'rushim quit asking him questions; Pontius Pilate found no fault in him and washed his hands of any liability; and the crucifying soldier declared him to be necessarily the Son of Ya-hwuah. The whole congregation: Tehillim 22 says he was surrounded by dogs (an idiom for Gentiles), lions
    • (the symbol of Judah), and bulls (a symbol of Ephraim or the northern Kingdom--showing that everyone was present to kill him, and no one group in particular can be blamed for His murder. "Between the evenings": the word for "evening" is based on "mixture" or "transition", so "Between the evenings" could possibly mean between the sunset twilight and the sunrise twilight. By the time of the second Temple, it was offered between the first and second evening oblation, which translates to the ninth hour (3:00 p.m.), which is exactly when Yâhuwshúa` was slain on Passover. Why the 14th? The way to write the number 14 in Ibriy is with the letters yod and dalet, which spell the word for “hand”. Indeed, Ya-hwuah had said He would stretch out His Hand over Mitsrayim (3:19) and lay His Hand on it (7:4). The Passover lamb was thus to be kept until the fullness of Yâhwuah’s Hand (Mashiyach) comes. Yâhuwshúa`, thus, is the one who strikes Mitsrayim down Shemot 12:7-8 They shall take some of the blood, and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel, on the houses in which they shall eat it. Moshah later commanded the Y’sra’alites to write the words of the Torah on their doorposts, because the commandment would be "life" to them Deut. 32:47 For it is no vain thing for you; because it is your life, and through this thing you shall prolong your days in the Land, where you go over the Yarden to possess it.”
    • It would form the letter “heth”, the first letter in the Ibriy word for “life”. Blood is where the "life of the flesh" resides (Lev. 17:14). Shemot 12:8 They shall eat the flesh in that night, roasted with fire, and unleavened bread. They shall eat it with bitter herbs. Bitter herbs: possibly "bitter things", or simply "bitterness". The word for "flesh" is basar. It can mean "meat", and because the locating of meat for consumption is glad news for hungry people, the word basar also came to mean "good news". It is the Hebrew equivalent of the word "gospel”. We could also alternately translate "the life of the flesh is in the blood" as "blood is the soul of the gospel". The glad news is about the blood of Yâhuwshúa`. One reason blood is not to be eaten is that it is what makes atonement for the soul Lev. 17:11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood; and I have given it to you on the altar to make atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that makes atonement by reason of the life His Body needs his blood in order to live spiritually. The word for "blood" is dam, and occasionally this also refers to wine. This can explain why Yâhuwshúa` said that unless we eat his flesh (the gospel) and drink his blood (the Passover wine that symbolizes what his blood means to us), we have no life in us. (Yahuwchanan 6:53) Yâhuwshúa` therefore said to them, “Most certainly I tell you, unless you [in the Raukh] eat the body of the Son of Adam and [in
    • the Raukh] drink His blood, you do not have life in yourselves (Qnoma - Underlying Substance). At this time we will partake of the bitter herbs ( myrrh) , in remembrance of the bitterness of sin that we endured when we were in bondage Shemot 1:14 And they made their lives bitter with hard service, in mortar and in brick, and in all manner of service in the field, all their service, in which they ruthlessly made them serve. And the bitterness we have when we mourn at Yâhuwshúa’’s Death Zechariah 12:10 I will pour on the House of Dawiyd, and on the inhabitants of Yahrushalom, the Raukh of acceptance/favour and of supplication [begging for favor]; and they will look on Me, Aleph wTaw, Whom they have pierced; and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for His only Son, and will grieve bitterly for Him, as one grieves over His Firstborn. (Me is Ya-hwuah .... Him is Yâhuwshúa`) At this time, take and eat a portion of the bitter herbs Shemot 12: 9 Don’t eat it raw, nor boiled at all with water, but roasted with fire; with its head, its legs and its inner parts. It was not to be boiled, because Ya-hwuah had promised Noah that the world would not be destroyed by a flood again; next time it will be by fire. (Yahuwchanan the Immerser said Yâhuwshúa` would
    • baptize with fire, not water.) Its entrails: The intestines were wrapped around the head and it was called the "crowned slaughter"; Yâhuwshúa`, Who is Himself called „our Passover" (1 Corinthians 5:7) , had a crown of thorns woven for Him. The whole animal was to be consumed. We don’t just give Ya-hwuah our head or our knees, but all of us. The entrails are what the flesh contains. In Ibriy “flesh” is the same as “gospel”. Though Yâhuwshúa` is the Head, the gospel we partake of has to have some content as well, and it is this: “If you love Me, keep My Commandments”. Shemot 12:10 You shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; but that which remains of it until the morning you shall burn with fire. Shemot 12:11 This is how you shall eat it: with your waist girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and you shall eat it in haste: it is YaHuWaH’s Passover. Your belt tied: literally, "your hips bound", since loose flowing robes would hinder quick movement if not secured tightly first. Paul links this with truth in Eph. 6, because if we have the facts secured, we cannot be fooled. Shoes on your feet: prepared, as seen in its connection to spreading the glad news. Yashayahuw 52:7; How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes shalom, who brings good news of good, who publishes "deliverance" [Yâhuwshúa], who tells Tsiyown, “your Aluahiym has begun to reign!” [His coronation!]
    • [Rev. 11:16-17 The twenty-four elders, who sit on their thrones before Ya-hwuah's throne, fell on their faces and worshiped Yahwuah, saying: “We give You thanks, O Ya-hwuah, Al Shadai, the One Who is and Who was; because you have taken Your great power and reigned. ] Ephesians 6 Children, obey your parents because you belong to the Malak, for this is the right thing to do. "Respect your father and mother." This is the first command that ends with a promise. And this is the promise: If you respect your father and mother, "you will live a long life, full of blessing." And now a word to you fathers. Don't make your children angry by the way you treat them. Rather, bring them up with the discipline and instruction approved by Ya-hwuah. Slaves, obey your earthly Malaks with deep respect and fear. Serve them sincerely as you would serve haMashiyach. Work hard, but not just to please your Malaks when they are watching. As slaves of haMashiyach, do the will of Ya-hwuah with all your heart. Work with enthusiasm, as though you were working for Ya-hwuah rather than for people. Remember that Ya-hwuah will reward each one of us for the good we do, whether we are slaves or free And in the same way, you Malaks must treat your slaves right. Don't threaten them; remember, you both have the same Malak in heaven, and He has no favorites. Finally, be strong in Ya-hwuah, and in the strength of His might. Put on all of Yâ-hwuah’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies and tricks of the Devil. Because we do not
    • wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against authorities, against the world-rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual matters of wickedness in the heavenlies. [YashaYahuw 24:21] It shall happen in That Day that Ya-hwuah shall punish the army of the high ones on high, and the kings of the earth on the earth. Use every piece of Yâ-hwuah’s armor to resist the enemy in the time of evil, so that after the battle you will still be standing firm. Stand your ground, putting on the sturdy belt of truth and the breastplate of Yâ-hwuah’s righteousness. For shoes, put on the shalom that comes from the Besorah, so that you will be fully prepared. In every battle you will need belief as your shield to stop the fiery arrows aimed at you by hasatan. Put on deliverance as your helmet, and take the Sword of the Raukh HaQodesh, which is the Word of Aluahiym. Pray at all times and on every occasion in the Power of Raukh HaQodesh. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all Nätsärim everywhere. And pray for me, too. Ask Ya-hwuah to give me the right words as I boldly explain Yâ-hwuah’s secret plan that the Besorah is for the nations, too. I am in chains now for preaching this message as Yâhwuah’s ambassador. But pray that I will keep on speaking boldly for Him, as I should. Tychicus, a much loved brother and dependable helper in Yâ-hwuah’s work, will tell you all about how I am getting along. I am sending him to you for just this purpose. He will let you know how we are, and he will encourage you. May Aluah give you shalom, dear brothers and sisters, and love with belief, from Ya-hwuah the Father and the Malak Yâhuwshúa`
    • haMashiyach May Yâ-hwuah’s favour be upon all who love our Malak Yâhuwshúa` haMashiyach with an undying love. Staff in hand: Perhaps they had to dig their shepherds’ staffs out of storage, since they had not used them in so long. A shepherd’s staff often had events from one’s life carved on it, so this would remind them of who they really were. They were not to live as slaves anymore. Passover: literally, "skipping-over"; the reason for this will be seen in v.. The Passover is not the feast itself, but the sacrifice of this particular lamb, done in a particular way as specified here. Not just any blood would do, especially not from unclean animals; specifications of every aspect are given. Josephus adds that Moshah got the Hebrews ready for their departure by sorting them according to their tribes. Shemot 12:12 For I will pass/cross through the land of Mitsrayim in that night, and will strike all the firstborn in the land of Mitsrayim, both man and animal. Against all the mighty ones of Mitsrayim I will execute judgments: Cross: or pass through, the word for “Hebrew”, so Ya-hwuah Himself became a Hebrew here! Aram., "reveal Myself in..." Gods: Aram., "abominations". The last of the gods of Mitsrayim was Par'oh's own son, the next "incarnation of Ra", so to speak. He humiliated the greatest world power before killing them. Shemot 12:13
    • The blood shall be to you for a token on the houses where you are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and there shall no plague be on you to destroy you, when I strike the land of Mitsrayim. The houses where you are: no longer "your houses", because they are ready to leave. The first stop in the Exodus, however, was the house. They had to be gathered into the primary administrative unit of Y’sra’al first. Skip over: Aramaic, "spare". Plague: the word in Hebrew includes the sense of it being a mortal blow. Shemot 12:14 This day (Passover) shall be to you for a memorial, and you shall guard it as a feast to Ya-hwuah: throughout your generations you shall guard it as a feast by an ordinance forever. Festival: the word means “moving in a circle”. Generations are from a word for “gyration”. As the gyration of a top keeps it upright when spinning or a ceiling fan must be balanced to spin properly, remembrance of the feast of unleavened bread keeps our “circle” in balance. Keeping it in season connects us to the other generations. But once we lost track of the right season, soon the “fan” spun so wildly that it was turned off altogether for our ancestors, but we can reclaim it. Shemot 12:15 “‘Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread; even the first day you shall put away leaven out of your houses, for whoever eats leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Y’sra’al.
    • Note that we are not just commanded to not eat leaven, but to actually eat unleavened bread. Yâhuwshúa` calls himself the bread that came down from heaven Yahuwchanan 6:51-56 If anyone eats [in the Raukh] of this Bread, he shall live forever. Yes, the Bread which I shall give is My flesh, which I will donate for the life of the world.” The Yahuwdiym therefore contended with one another, saying, “How can this man give us his flesh to eat? Yâhuwshúa` therefore said to them, “Most certainly I tell you, unless you [in the Raukh] eat the body of the Son of Adam and [in the Raukh] drink His blood, you do not have life in yourselves (Qnoma - Underlying Substance). He who [in the Raukh] eats from My body and [in the Raukh] drinks from My blood has endless life, and I shall raise him up at the Last Day. For truly My body is food, and truly My blood is drink. 6:56 He who [in the Raukh] eats My body and [in the Raukh] drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him. and equates his body with the bread of Passover. He alone was without sin, and we must "consume" his flesh (which is true food, he says)--have a definite part in him, not just cease from sinning. But in Hebrew "flesh" and "good news" are the same--so what he said was that we must "consume his glad news". Ber. 1:27 says Adam, before Chuwah was separated out from him, was created male and female. The root meanings of these words, though, are “marked (or striped) and pierced”, which was true for Yâhuwshúa` (Zech. 12:10; Yesh. ) and is particular true of matzah; thus, it is in many ways a picture of Him.
    • Shemot 12:16 In the first day there shall be to you a set apart convocation, and in the seventh day a set apart convocation; no manner of work shall be done in them, except that which every man must eat, that only may be done by you. I.e., the only permissible labor is that which has to do with the preparation of food. A Qodesh gathering: the festivals cannot be celebrated alone, because only as we gather can we depict the reconstructed Hekal built of living stones and the Body of Mâshíyach with its many members. Shemot 12:17 You shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this same day have I brought your divisions out of the land of Mitsrayim: therefore you shall observe this day throughout your generations by an ordinance forever. Observe: Pseudo-Jonathan, watch the loaves lest they become leavened. Same: literally, bound-together. This day is one for binding together all the tribes of Y’sra’al. But “brought” is in the past tense; why do we still commemorate it? Because “what has been is what will be”; Ya-hwuah brings deliverance every year within us in some way. Shemot 12:18 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at evening, you shall eat unleavened bread, until the twenty first day of the month at evening.
    • Shemot 12:19 Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses, for whoever eats that which is leavened, that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Y’sra’al, whether he be a foreigner, or one who is born in the land. Cut off from the congregation: exposed to any and every outside threat, where there are no guarantees of safety. When we violate the commands, we have holes in our spiritual armor. Tehillim 73:21 says that when one’s heart is grieved, he becomes like a beast. “Grieved” is literally “sour”, the root word in Hebrew for “leavened bread”. This season is one for dealing with the selfishness in ourselves before it become full-grown into sin. (Yaaqov 1:15) Cut off from the congregation: exposed to any and every threat, where there are no guarantees of safety. And there is no covenant anywhere else. At the very least, when in violation of the commandments, we have holes in our spiritual armor. Tehillim 73:21 For my being was grieved. I was embittered in my heart. says that when one’s heart is grieved, he becomes like a beast. “Grieved” is literally “sour”, the root word in Ibriy for “leavened bread”. This season is one for dealing with the selfishness in ourselves before it become full-grown into sin. Ya'aqob 1:15
    • Then the lust, when it has conceived, bears sin; and the sin, when it is full grown, brings forth death Shemot 12:20 You shall eat nothing leavened. In all your habitations you shall eat unleavened bread.’” Eating unleavened bread is just as important as not eating leaven, for eating unleavened bread symbolizes partaking of an undefiled community, and while we can keep the negative commands (“Thou shalt not…”) in isolation, we cannot keep the positive ones without someone to direct them toward. Shemot 12:21 Then Moshah called for all the elders of Y’sra’al, and said to them, “Draw out, and take lambs according to your families, and kill the Passover. Shemot 12:22 You shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and strike the lintel and the two doorposts with the blood that is in the basin; and none of you shall go out of the door of his house until the morning. Hyssop makes a natural “paintbrush” because it both absorbs and releases a liquid readily. If done a day too late, the firstborn son would die. Shemot 12:23
    • For Ya-hwuah will pass through to strike the Mitsrites; and when He sees the blood on the lintel, and on the two doorposts, Ya-hwuah will pass (skip) over the door, and will not allow the destroyer to come in to your houses to strike you. Shemot 12:24 You shall observe this thing for an ordinance to you and to your sons forever. Shemot 12:25 It shall happen when you have come to the Land which Ya-hwuah will give you, according as He has promised, that you shall guard this service. The slaughter was not done again until Y’hoshua brought the nation across the Yarden. (Y’hoshua 5:10-11) but the initial trip to the promised Land was meant to take less than a year anyway. Shemot 12:26 It will happen, when your children ask you, ‘What do you mean by this service?’ At this time all the children ask in unison “ What do you mean by service”? An adult will read Shemot 13:8 You shall tell your son in that day, saying, ‘It is because of that which Ya-hwuah did for me when I came forth out of Mitsrayim.’
    • And Shemot 12:27 that you shall say, ‘It is the slaughter of Yâ-hwuah’s Passover, Who passed over the houses of the children of Y’sra’al in Mitsrayim, when He struck the Mitsrites, and spared our houses.’” The people bowed their heads and worshiped. This commemoration is all about teaching our children. Do they see in us as radical a change as from slaves to freemen? An adult may say “The Mâshíyach is our Passover and we have been spared from death. Ya-hwuah has delivered our households by the blood of the lamb. There are other homes in our area that do not have the blood of the lamb. Praise Ya-hwuah for His great deliverance and His Great act of love for us. Let us bow our heads and worship Ya-hwuah Tehillim 103 Praise Ya-hwuah, my being! All that is within me, praise His Set-apart Name! Praise Ya-hwuah, O my being, and don’t forget all His benefits; Who covers all your sins; [Bereshith 3:21 "cover" [labash - H-3847] ones nakedness.)] Who heals all your diseases;
    • Who redeems your life from destruction; Who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies; Who satisfies your desire with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. Ya-hwuah executes righteous acts, and justice for all who are oppressed. He made known His ways to Moshah, His deeds to the children of Y’sra’al. Ya-hwuah is merciful and kind, slow to anger, and abundant in loving kindness. He will not always accuse; neither will He stay angry into the Ages. He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor repaid us for our iniquities. For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His loving kindness toward those who fear Him. As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us. Like a father has compassion on his children, so YaHuWaH has compassion on those who fear Him. For He knows how we are made.
    • He remembers that we are dust. As for man, his days are like grass. As a flower of the field, so he flourishes. For the wind passes over it, and it is gone. Its place remembers it no more. But Yâ-hwuah’s loving kindness is from everlasting to everlasting with those who fear Him, His righteousness to children’s children; to those who guard His Covenant, to those who remember to obey His precepts. Ya-hwuah has established His Kisei in the heavens His reign rules over all. Praise Ya-hwuah, you Messengers of His, who are mighty in strength, who fulfill His Word, obeying the Voice of His Word. Praise Ya-hwuah, all you armies of His, you servants of His, who do His pleasure. Praise Ya-hwuah, all you works of His, in all places of His dominion. Praise Ya-hwuah, O my being! Continuing
    • Shemot 12:28 The children of Y’sra’al went and did so; as Ya-hwuah had commanded Moshah and Aharon, so they did. We cannot do things our own way and expect to be delivered. Shemot 12:29 It happened at midnight, that Ya-hwuah struck all the firstborn in the land of Mitsrayim, from the firstborn of Par'oh who sat on his throne to the firstborn of the captive who was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of every beast. There are three categories of people here, as there were in chapter 11, but those grinding at the mill were replaced by those in the dungeon. They may have been imprisoned when their livelihood, grain, was all destroyed by the “hail” and locusts, and they were no longer useful to Pharaoh. Why couldn’t they just rejoin Israel? Because they had a financial stake in Egypt, they chose not to try to get out until it was too late to do so. Now they had no choice. At some point it will not matter why you are not attached to Israel, but only that you are not. Some such deadlines pass in our lives every day. Don’t miss them! The death of the firstborn is a picture of killing off any evil thought that enters our mind before it can develop into an act. We are told to bind the Torah between our eyes—at the seat of our thoughts—as a filter to sort which should go no further.
    • Shemot 12:30 Par'oh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Mitsrites; and there was a great cry in Mitsrayim, for there was not a house where there was not one dead Judgment is without mercy to one who has shown no compassion. (Yaaqov 2:13) Shemot. 12:31 He called for Moshah and Aharon by night, and said, “Rise up, get out from among my people, both you and the children of Y’sra’al; and go, serve Ya-hwuah, as you have said! Shemot 12:32 Take both your flocks and your herds, as you have said, and be gone; and bless me also!” Bless: He now even sees it as a blessing that they leave. But since the Hebrew word means to bend the knee, he is still asking them to bow to him. He still maintains the delusion that they will eventually come back. Shemot 12:33 The Mitsrites were urgent with the people, to send them out of the land in haste, for they said, “We are all dead men.” Shemot 12:34
    • The people took their dough before it was leavened, their kneading troughs being bound up in their clothes on their shoulders. Given enough advance planning time, we usually “leaven” Yâhwuah’s directives. Thus, unleavened bread is one aspect of the hurriedness (v. 11). Modern bakers say bread begins to be naturally leavened by the yeast in the air after only 18 minutes, so it must be baked quickly as well. Leaven is a picture of sin--especially pride, which makes us appear to be more than we really are. Shemot 12:35 The children of Y’sra’al did according to the word of Moshah; and they asked of the Mitsrites jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and clothing. This could be seen as back-pay for all their years of forced labor. Shemot 12:36 Ya-hwuah gave the people favor in the sight of the Mitsrites, so that they let them have what they asked. They despoiled the Mitsrites. Ya-hwuah gave them leverage through the plagues, so that the Egyptians were ready to give them anything just to get them out of there—probably much to their surprise. Despoiled: stripped. But the word can also mean rescued! This wealth would later be melted down or unraveled to make the holy implements for the Dwellingplace of Ya-hwuah. They would not use them in their pagan form, but rework them into a usable format. But they also did bring salvation to Egypt, because the Egyptians had indeed sent them
    • out, and not empty-handed, and so were keeping the Torah. This allowed the land itself to survive, unlike the total destruction at S’dom and Ghamorah When we come to inherit the Promised Land, it is written that all the wealth of the Gentiles will be ours: YashaYahuw 60:1 “Arise, shine, O Yerushalayim; for your Light [the time of your deliverance] is come, and the Splendor of Ya-hwuah is risen on you. Arise shine: LXX, be enlightened; it and the Aramaic targum both add, "O Yerushalayim". Your light: Aramaic, the time of your salvation. YashaYahuw 60:2 For, behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the peoples; but Ya-hwuah shall arise on you, and His Splendor shall appear over you. This is an allusion to the exemption of the land of Goshen from the plagues (especially the thick darkness) that came over Egypt just before the Exodus, and the pillar of fire that appeared over the camp of Israel, and again it harbingers Yâ-hwuah’s deliverance, which will overshadow even that Exodus. (YirmeYahuw 16:14-15) YirmeYahuw 16:14-15 YashaYahuw 60:3
    • Nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. [Sukkot terminology] The Queen of Sheva's fascination with King Shlomo's wisdom was a foreshadowing of this. YashaYahuw 60:4 “Lift up your eyes all around, and see: they all gather themselves together, they come to you; your sons shall come from far, and your daughters shall be carried in the arms. [The Shofar gathering] YashaYahuw 60:5 Then you shall see and be radiant, and your heart shall thrill and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you, the wealth of the nations shall come to you. YashaYahuw 60:6 The multitude of camels shall cover you, the dromedaries of Midian and Eyphah; all they from Sheba shall come; they shall bring gold and frankincense, and shall proclaim the praises of Ya-hwuah. Camels: from a root word meaning to ripen, be mature or weaned, and deal bountifully, so He will grant us many people of these sorts as well as mere camels. Dromedaries: or firstborn. Gold and
    • frankincense: no myrrh this time, because the Messiah will not die this time, but he will reign. YashaYahuw 60:7 All the flocks of Qedar shall be gathered together to you, the rams of N'bayowth shall minister to you; they shall come up with acceptance on My altar; and I shall beautify the House of My renown. [Midyan…Ephyah…Sheba…Qedar…N’bayowth: all descendants of Abraham’s other children. He gave them all gifts (Gen. 25:5-6), but he also said he had given everything he owned to Yitshaq, so at this time the gifts will all be returned to Yitshaq’s house from the other children’s households.] YashaYahuw 60:8 “Who are these? Like a cloud-mass they fly, and like the doves, to their cotes? [24:31 He shall send out His Messengers with the sound of the Great Shofar [Day of Atonement], and they shall gather together His chosen ones from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other. YashaYahuw 27:12 It shall happen in that day, that Yahwuah shall thresh from the flowing stream of the River to the brook of Mitsrayim; and you shall be gathered one by one, children of Y’sra’al. 27:13 It shall happen in that day that a great shofar shall be blown; and those who were ready to perish in the land of Ashshuwr, and those who were outcasts in the land of Mitsrayim, shall come; and they shall worship Ya-hwuah in the Qodesh Mountain at Yahrushalom. [1 Kepha: ... those of us being protected by the Force of Ya-hwuah, and through persuasion for a rescue
    • ready to be disclosed during a latter feast season! [Yowm Kippuríym, Deuteronomy 32: 42] &1 Thess. 4:17] YashaYahuw 60:9 Because the coastlands shall wait for Me, and the ships of Tarshiysh at their lead, to bring your sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, for haShem of Ya-hwuah your Aluahiym, and for the Qadesh-One of Y’sra’al, because He has made you esteemed. Coastlands…wait: two forms of the same word in Hebrew, so this is a poetic play on words. Tarshish: a Phoenician colony far in the west; some identify it with Britain, and indeed the first wave of Jews to resettle Israel came in ships under British auspices. Renown: literally, Name. YashaYahuw 60:10 “Foreigners shall build up your walls, and their kings shall wait on you [Wait on you: the form of the word in Hebrew is intense.]: for in My wrath I struck you, but in My favor have I had mercy on you. Rebuild: after the events of Z'kharyah 12-14, after attacks and major topographical changes, the present-day walls will not suffice, even if they remain intact. Wait on you: i.e., hand and foot; the form of the word in Hebrew is intense. YashaYahuw 60:11 Your gates also shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring to you the wealth of the nations, and their kings led captive. Led in: or driven in, as captives taken as plunder.
    • YashaYahuw 60:12 For that nation and kingdom that shall not serve you shall perish; yes, those nations shall be utterly drained dry. [Drained dry: both by being plundered, and by receiving no rain (if they refuse to come up to Yahrushalom for YaHuWaH’s feasts, Zech. 14:16-17).] YashaYahuw 60:13 The importance of Lebanown shall come to you, the fir tree, the pine, and the box tree together, to beautify the place of My Qodesh Place; and I shall make the Place of My feet esteemed. The importance [or esteem] of Lebanon: perhaps cedars the size of Redwoods will grow there again after the earth’s axis shifts back to where it was prior to 701 B.C. and Y’sra’al climate is restored so it again becomes a “land flowing with milk and honey”. No grove of trees of any kind is to be planted near an altar to Ya-hwuah (Deut. 16:21), but as the first time, wood from these trees can be used to help build His Hekal. Since trees also represent people, perhaps this refers to the city of Yahrushalom in general, or on another level, mainly to various types of people who will stand at the Hekal during His “feet”—His pilgrimage festivals. (Ex. 23:14) YashaYahuw 60:14 The sons of those who afflicted you shall come bending to you; and all those who despised you shall bow themselves down at the soles
    • of your feet; and they shall call you The City of Ya-hwuah, The Tsiyown of the Qadesh-One of Y’sra’al. Afflict: or humble. Bowing: as Yowseph’s brothers did when he was exalted and they were humbled. It is His people who make up His city. Though at one time Yahrushalom refused to be gathered together under Yâhuwshúa`’s “wings” (the corners of His garments, where there is healing), and the Hekal that had leprous stones had to be torn down, He said He would rebuild it in three days. After three “days” (3,000 years), after His Kingdom is complete, a New Yahrushalom is seen coming down from heaven. (Rev. 21-22) YashaYahuw 60:15 “Whereas you have been forsaken and hated, so that no man passed through you, I shall make you an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations. YashaYahuw 60:16 You shall also suck the milk of the nations, and shall nurse from royal breasts; and you shall know that I, AM Ya-hwuah, your Deliverer, and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Ya'aqob. YashaYahuw 60:17 For brass I shall bring gold, and for iron I shall bring silver, and for wood, brass, and for stones, iron. I shall also make your officers shalom, and righteousness your ruler.
    • YashaYahuw 60:18 Violence shall no more be heard in your Land, desolation nor destruction within your borders; but you shall call your walls Deliverance [ Yâhuwshúa`], and your gates Praise. YashaYahuw 60:19 The sun shall be no more your light by day; neither for brightness shall the moon give light to you: but Ya-hwuah shall be to you an everlasting Light, and your Aluahiym your esteem. This scenario is reiterated in Rev. 21:23, which places it in the “eighth day”—the new beginning after the Mashiyach’s thousandyear-long reign, when there is a New heaven, New Earth, and New Yahrushalom. YashaYahuw 60:20 Your sun shall no more go down, neither shall your moon withdraw itself; for Ya-hwuah shall be your everlasting Light, and the days of your mourning shall be over. Your sun: Aramaic, your kingdom. Gathered away: i.e., removed little by little (waning) as it is now. Over: brought to completion; also includes the idea of being repaid. YashaYahuw 60:21 Your people also shall be all righteous; they shall inherit the Land for eternity, the branch [ne'tser] of My planting, the work of My hands, that I may be esteemed.
    • YashaYahuw 60:22 The little one shall become a thousand, and the small one a strong nation; I, Ya-hwuah, shall bring it speedily in its proper season.” [Rev. 1:1 and 21:23 - the eighth day] Thousand: or clan. Speedily: until that time the fulfillment will seem to be creeping toward us if moving at all, but when it begins (as it already has), the “rapid succession” (Rev. 1:1) with which it comes will make our heads spin. Shemot 12:37 The children of Y’sra’al traveled from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand on foot who were men, besides children. Ramses means "child of the sun". Today many of Y’sra’al descendants are in transition from worship on the Day of the Sun to the festival of Sukkoth, which symbolizes the Messianic Kingdom, the choice toward which we have set our face instead of the paganism from which we came out. Sukkoth was out of their way, but they went there to retrieve the bones of Yoseyf. (13:19-20) Sukkoth means “temporary shelters”, and indeed it was only a place to store Yoseyf’s body until it could be taken back to his homeland. Sukkoth was also the name of the last place Ya'aqob had camped before reentering the Land. (Gen. 33) So it is fitting that the last resting place of his son(s) had this name as well. Shemot 12:38 A mixed multitude went up also with them, with flocks, herds, and even very much livestock.
    • "Mixed multitude": From words meaning "a great many interwoven together like the woof of a garment"; Aram., "many aliens". Mitsrayim was the most cosmopolitan place in the world in that day. The Y’sra’alites had been enslaved, yet they remained a distinct people. Many of the Mitsrayimians and other peoples they had enslaved also joined the Y’sra’alites in the Exodus, since many of them had recognized Yâ-hwuah’s hand in the "great acts of judgment". Ya-hwuah accepts the sacrifice of a lamb in exchange for a firstborn donkey, whose neck would otherwise need to be broken. (34:20) But He never accepts the breaking of a dog’s neck in the same way. (Yashayahuw 66:3) Thus a dog symbolizes the unredeemable Par'oh. These other Mitsrayimians, obedient to the command to sacrifice the lamb, could be redeemed, though they must become part of Y’sra’al to be able to leave. But many Y’sra’alites later proved to still have Mitsrayim mixed with Y’sra’al in their hearts. Shemot 12:39 They baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they brought forth out of Mitsrayim; for it wasn’t leavened, because they were thrust out of Mitsrayim, and couldn’t wait, neither had they prepared for themselves any food. Shemot 12:40 Now the sojourning of the children of Y’sra’al, who had settled in Mitsrayim, was four-hundred thirty years. Because of how few generations there are between Ya'aqob and Moshah, it seems necessary for this time frame to include not just the time of slavery, but to have begun either when Yoseyf brought
    • his family into Mitsrayim. It may even include their sojourning’s" before they came to Mitsrayim, which began at birth for all of them, since the family did not settle down in Kanaan until after all of his sons were born, and even then they still lived as "aliens and strangers" in the Land, though it had been deeded segmentation into 30 and 400 may represent between the years before they came to Mitsrayim they spent there, since Ya-hwuah had only told to them. The a distinction and the years Abraham his descendants would be in a foreign land for 400 years. Linguistically, it is not certain whether this would include the years Ya'aqob spent in Paddan-Aram after some of his children had been born. But many estimate that the duration of the stay in Mitsrayim itself was 210 years to the day (v. 41) from Gen. 14:15, since "sojourning’s" refers not to the locale, but to the way of life. (Hirsch) Shemot 12:41 It happened at the end of four hundred thirty years, even the same day it happened, that all the divisions of Ya-hwuah went out from the land of Mitsrayim. They baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they brought forth out of Mitsrayim; for it wasn’t leavened, because they were thrust out of Mitsrayim, and couldn’t wait, neither had they prepared for themselves any food . Shemot 12:42 It is a night to be much observed to Ya-hwuah for bringing them out from the land of Mitsrayim. This is that night of Ya-hwuah, to
    • be much observed of all the children of Y’sra’al throughout their generations. . Shemot 12:43 Ya-hwuah said to Moshah and Aharon, “This is the ordinance of the Passover. No foreigner shall eat of it, . Shemot 12:44 But every man’s servant who is bought for money, when you have circumcised him, then shall he eat of it . Shemot . 12:45 A foreigner and a hired servant shall not eat of it. . Shemot 12:46 In one house shall it be eaten; you shall not carry forth anything of the flesh abroad out of the house; neither shall you break a bone of it. Meat: literally, flesh. Though the legs of the two men crucified beside Yâhuwshúa` were broken to speed their death before the Passover Shabbaton, Yâhuwshúa` had already died, so he fulfilled this requirement of having no bones broken as well. (Yahuwchanan 19:36) One house: The "meat" or deeper teaching for the mature (Heb. 5:14) is not to be taken outside the spiritual Temple made of living stones, lest "the pearls be cast before swine". . Shemot 12:47 All the congregation of Y’sra’al shall guard it. . Shemot 12:48
    • When a stranger shall live as a foreigner with you, and will guard the Passover to Ya-hwuah, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and guard it; and he shall be as one who is born in the Land: but no uncircumcised person shall eat of it. . Shemot 12:49 One Torah shall be to him who is born at home, and to the stranger who lives as a foreigner among you.” Instruction: Heb., torah--directive, teaching, but also the specific name for the five books of Moshah. This would also apply to any in our day who are not literal descendants of Y’sra’al but have committed themselves to the community of Y’sra’al; there are no second-class citizens once one joins the household. . Shemot 12:50 All the children of Y’sra’al did so. as Ya-hwuah commanded Moshah and Aharon, so they did. . Shemot 12:51 It happened the same day, that Yâ-hwuah brought the children of Y’sra’al out of the land of Mitsrayim by their divisions. Yâhuwshúa` said .Yahuwchanan 6:48 I AM the Bread of Life. Yahuwchanan 6:49 Your Fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. Yahuwchanan 6:50
    • This is the Bread which comes down out of heaven, that anyone may eat of it and not die. Yahuwchanan 6:51 I AM the Living Bread [Torah] which came down out of heaven. If anyone eats [in the Raukh] of this Bread, he shall live forever. Yes, the Bread which I shall give is My flesh, which I will donate for the life of the world.” Yahuwchanan 6:52 The Yahuwdiym therefore contended with one another, saying, “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?” Yahuwchanan 6:53 Yâhuwshúa` therefore said to them, “Most certainly I tell you, unless you [in the Raukh] eat the body of the Son of Adam and [in the Raukh] drink His blood, you do not have life in yourselves (Qnoma - Underlying Substance). Yahuwchanan 6:54 He who [in the Raukh] eats from My body and [in the Raukh] drinks from My blood has endless life, and I shall raise him up at the Last Day. Yahuwchanan 6:55 For truly My body is food, and truly My blood is drink. Yahuwchanan 6:56 He who [in the Raukh] eats My body and [in the Raukh] drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him.
    • Yahuwchanan 6:57 As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father; so he who [in the Raukh] feeds on Me, he shall also live because of Me. Yahuwchanan 6:58 This is the Bread which came down from the One of the heavens— not as our fathers ate the manna, and died. He who [in the Raukh] eats This Bread shall live forever!” Yahuwchanan 6:59 He said these things in the synagogue, as He taught in Kaphar Nachuwm. Shemoth 12:8-9 "They shall eat the flesh in that night, roasted with fire, and unleavened bread. They shall eat it with bitter herbs. Don’t eat it raw, nor boiled at all with water, but roasted with fire; with its head, its legs and its inner parts.") Yahuwchanan 6:60 Therefore many of His taught ones, when they heard this, said, “This is a hard saying! Who can understand it?” Yahuwchanan 6:61 But Yâhuwshúa` knowing in Himself that His taught ones murmured at this, said to them, “Does this cause you to lose trust? Yahuwchanan 6:62 Then what if you would see the Son of Adam ascending to where He was before?
    • Yahuwchanan 6:63 It is the Breath Who gives life. The flesh profits nothing. The Words that I speak to you are Breath, and are Life. , Mark 14:22-26 As they were eating, Yâhuwshúa` took bread, and when He had blessed, He broke it, and gave to them, and said, “Take, eat. This is My body which is given for your sake. Perform this for the remembrance of Me He took the cup, and when He had given thanks, He gave to them. They all drank of it. He said to them, “This is My blood of the renewed covenant which for your sake is poured out for many. Most certainly I tell you, I will no more drink of the fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it anew in the Reign of Aluah.” [Millennial Kingdom] When they had sung the Hallel, they went out to the Mount of Olives. Matthew 26:26-30 As they were eating, Yâhuwshúa` took bread (artos), gave thanks for it, and broke it. He gave to the talmidim, and said, “Take, eat; this is My body, which is given for your sake. Perform this for the remembrance of Me. He took the cup, gave thanks, and gave to them, saying, “ Take this and distribute among yourselves, all of you drink it, for this is My blood of the Renewed Covenant, which is poured out for many for the liberation from sins. But I tell you that I shall not drink of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I
    • drink it anew with you in My Father’s Reign.0 When they had sung the Hallel , they went out to the Mount of Olives. Loukas 22 15_20 He said to them, “I have earnestly desired to eat the Pesach with you before I suffer, but I say to you: I will not eat of it until it is fulfilled in the Reign of Ya-hwuah. He received a cup, and when He had given thanks, He said, “Take this, and share it among yourselves, but I tell you, I shall not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the Reign of Ya-hwuah comes.” He took bread, and when He had given thanks, He broke it, and gave to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you. Do this in memory of Me.” Likewise, He took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the renewed covenant in My blood, which is poured out for you for liberation from sins (Yâhuwshúa` never ate of the "traditional" Pesach supper which was on the evening after the slaughter of the lamb. The wordings in verses 22:7-8 are misleading. The meal they ate was the same one of Yahuwchanan 13:1 - which was on the evening of the 13 of Abib not the evening of the 14 at which time Yâhuwshúa` was dead.) 1 Cor 11:23 For I received from Ya-hwuah that which also I delivered to you, that the Malak Yâhuwshúa` on the night in which He was betrayed took bread. When He had given thanks, He broke it, and said, “Take, eat. This is My body, which is broken for you. Do this in memory of Me.” In the same way He also took the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. Do this, as often as you drink, in memory of Me.”
    • Take the unleavened bread give thanks to Ya-hwuah for it, and for who it represents Yâhuwshúa`, asking Yâ-hwuah’s Blessing On it: break the bread and pass to each person at the table, then say Yâhuwshúa` has said Take, Eat, this is my body which is broken for you, Do this in remembrance of me. Eat in haste, Yâhuwshúa’’s our Passover, which was/is sacrificed for us Note that after partaking of the unleavened bread (which is dry) we thirst. In the same manner, when we read the words of Ya-hwuah we see our sin and thus our need for Yâhuwshúa`’s atoning blood (symbolized by the fruit of the vine) Next we take the fruit of the vine, give thanks to Ya-hwuah for it and for who it represents (Yâhuwshúa` ), asking Ya-hwuah ’s blessing upon it. Divide it among each person present for this service, then say Yâhuwshúa` as said “This Cup is the renewed covenant in my Blood which is shed for many for the remission of sin. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me. Assuredly, I say unto you, I will no longer drink of the fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you when the kingdom of Aluahiym comes” Bless Ya-hwuah’ with a song of praise “, Bless Ya-hwuah my soul,
    • In His Name Blessed be, in His name Be not blind to the truth And, hinnei, two blind men sitting by the way side, when they heard that Yâhuwshúa` passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on us, O Yâ-hwuah, [thou] Ben David. An Yâhuwshúa` stood still, and called them, and said, what will ye that I shall do unto you they say
    • unto Him, Yâ-hwuah, that our eyes may be opened. So Yâhuwshúa` had compassion [on them], and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him.
