The Passover Seder

  1. 1. Zekeniam YSCHaREL 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 Moshah said to Aluahiym, “Behold, when I come to the children ofYSCHaREL, and tell them, ‘The Aluahiym of your fathers has sent me to you;’ and they ask me, ‘What is His name?’ What should I tell them?” Aluahiym said to Moshah, ahaYah asher ahaYah “I AM HE who EXISTS,” "I AM THAT I AM YaHuWaH: His name appears to be the composite of
  2. 2. HaYaH HaYaH (He was), HoWeH (He is), and YiHYeH (He will be). Thus the best translation would be "the Eternal One".] I AM My Memorial for generation after generation.” Shemot 3:13-16and he said, “You shall tell the children of YSCHaREL this: ‘I AM has sent me to you.’” (AhaYah - I AM) (Asher - That) (AhaYah - I AM) The Self Existing One. Which was, which is, and which is to come

Furthermore, He said, "This is what you shall say to the children of YSCHaREL: ‘"I will be" has sent me to you. (AhaYah Asher AhaYah)] I will be: the same word in the phrase, „I Will be with you" in v. 12.So He said, because I will be with you. This will be the token to you that I havesent you: when you have brought forth the people out of Mitsrayim, you shall serve Aluahiym on this mountain.” This description of Himself is in the imperfect tense, which can also mean, "Iam becoming what I used to be", “I am [customarily] what I will [continue to] be”, or “I will be what I am Aluahiym said further to Moshah,
  4. 4. “You shall tell the children of YSCHaREL this,‘YaHuWaH, the Aluahiym of your fathers, the Aluahiym of Abraham, theAluahiym of Yitschaq, and the Aluahiym of Yaaqob, has sent me to you.’ This is My Name forever, and this is My REMEMBRANCE to all generations.WaYoaMaR Aluahiym eLe Moshah aHaYaH aSheR aHaYah .....

  5. 5. The ministry of reconciliation Message of Reconciliation Torah sh’Bichtav (Written Torah) Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. YaHuWSCHuA HaNaTSReY uWMeLeK HaYaHuWDYM (in His Name) YaHuWaH [Yah -hoo-Wah] is the Name of the Creator. YaHuWShuWaH (Yahuwshua) is His Son ALuaHiYM [Al-u-heem - ALHYM] means "Mighty Ones“ or "Power" Qadosh means Set-apart, Pure. Kodesh (Qodesh) also means "Set-apart"Ruwach (Ruach) is the Ibry (Hebrew) name for His "Presence", pictured as the Counselor, Helper, and Advocate, the One Who "proceeds from the Father" ANY HuWE ( I am He)
  6. 6. A Copy of the scriptures for everyoneWe 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.
  7. 7. According to scripture .It is wise to have a regular meal prior to the serviceWhen therefore you assemble yourselves together, it is not the Masters 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 YaHuWaH’s assembly, and put them to shamewho don’t have? What shall I tell you? Shall I praise you? In this I don’t praiseyou. For I received from YaHuWaH that which also I delivered to you, that the Master YaHuWSHuWaH on the night in which He was betrayed took bread. When He had given thanks, He broke it, and said, “Take, eat. This is Mybody, 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 Master’s death until He comes. Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks YaHuWaH’s cup in a way unworthy of YaHuWaH will be guilty of the body and the blood of YaHuWaH. (YaHuWaH has no blood or body except that of YaHuWSHuWaH).But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of thebread, and drink of the cup. For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy wayeats and drinks judgment to himself, if he doesn’t discern YaHuWaH’s body (YaHuWSHuWaH/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 Master (YaHuWSHuWaH), we are really disciplined, that we may not becondemned 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 Washing of Feet.
  8. 8. 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 YaHuWaH appeared [yera] to him by the oaks of Mamre, as he sat inthe 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 themfrom the tent door, and bowed himself to the earth, and said, “My Masters, 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 yourselvesunder 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 YaHuWaH returns in a fuller measure to carry out His next step. Every covenant has “ifs”, and though it offends our modern sensitivities, YaHuWaH 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 if you shall obey the Voice of YaHuWaH your Aluahiym, to keep His Commandments and His statutes which are written in this scroll of the Torah; if you turn to YaHuWaH your Aluahiym with all your heart, andwith all your being. For this Commandment which I command you this day, it is not too hard for you, neither is it far off. It is not in heaven, that youshould say, “Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it to us, and make
  9. 9. us to hear it, that we may do it?” Neither is it beyond the sea, that you shouldsay, “Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it to us, and make us to hearit, that we may do it?” But the Word is very near to you, in your mouth, and in your heart, that you may do it. Behold, I have set before you this day life and good, and death and evil; in that I command you this day to love YaHuWaH 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 YaHuWaH your Aluahiym may bless you in the Land where you go in to possess it. But if your heart turns away, and you will not hear, but shall be drawn away, and worship other mighty ones, and serve them; I declare to you this day, that you shall surely perish; you shallnot prolong your days in the Land, where you pass over the Yarden to go in topossess it. 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, you and your seed; to love YaHuWaH 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 YaHuWaH swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Yitshaq, and to Yaaqob, to give them. YaHuWShuWaH 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 loving-kindness ormercy 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 theliteral 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”. YaHuWaH appeared to: or “YaHuWaH was perceived by”. Being focused on YaHuWaH, he had a deeper level of ruwachual insight. "Rest" here denotes leaning against, trusting in, or supporting oneself upon. Since it is “the tree”, notjust “a tree”, it also refers to YaHuWShuWaH execution stake. He is teaching
  10. 10. 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 YaHuWaHs promise of entering His place of rest still stands, so we ought totremble with fear that some of you might fail to get there. For this Besorah--that YaHuWaH 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 didnt believe what YaHuWaH told them. For only we who believe can enter His place of rest. As for those who didnt believe, YaHuWaH 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 YaHuWaH rested from all His work." But in the other passage YaHuWaH said, "They will never enter My place of rest." SoYaHuWaHs rest is there for people to enter. But those who formerly heard theBesorah failed to enter because they disobeyed YaHuWaH. So YaHuWaH set another time for entering His place of rest, and that time is today. YaHuWaH announced this through Dawiyd a long time later in the words already quoted: "Today you must listen to His voice. Dont harden your hearts against Him."
  11. 11. This new place of rest was not the land of Kenaan, where Yahuwshua led them. If it had been, YaHuWaH would not have spoken later about another day of rest. So there still is a Shabbath-keeping (it is therefore the duty of the people of YaHuWaH to keep the Shabbath.) for the people of YaHuWaH.For all who enter into YaHuWaHs rest will find rest from their labors, just as YaHuWaH rested after creating the world. Let us do our best to enter that place of rest. For anyone who disobeys YaHuWaH, as the people of YSCHaREL did, will fall. (the weekly Shabbath rest is a type of the Millennial seventh-thousandth day rest) Indeed the Word of YaHuWaH is living and active, sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing until it divides soul from ruwach, 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 Hiseyes. 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, YaHuWSHuWaH, the Son of YaHuWaH; 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.
  12. 12. which symbolizes a unified congregation: A morsel: not a whole loaf, but a part that is broken off. This strongly hints of Passover, when YaHuWShuWaH stated that broken bread symbolized His body Matt. 26:26,As they were eating, YaHuWSHuWaH 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 MasterThis may help us understand why YaHuWShuWaH chose one of the lowliest Of services to demonstrate the importance of humbly serving one another Loukas 7:36-37One 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 analabaster 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
  13. 13. touches Him that she is a sinner.” YaHuWSHuWaH answered him, “Shimown, 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 forgavethem both. Which of them therefore shall love him most?” Shimown 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 Shimown, “Do you see thiswoman? 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 YaHuWSHuWaH gentle rebuke, we see him encouraging tis act of humbleness and service. We see again in Yahuwchanan 13 where YaHuWSHuWaH washes the feet of His Disciples on the night of Pesach (Passover) Yahuwchanan 13:1-11 Now before the Festival of the Pesach, YaHuWSHuWaH, knowing that His time had come that He would depart from this world to the Father, havingloved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end. During supper,the devil having already put into the heart of Yehudah Iscariot, Simon’s son, to hand Him over, YaHuWSHuWaH, knowing that the Father had given allthings into His hands, and that He had come out and from YaHuWaH, and was going towards YaHuWaH, 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 Shimown Kepha who said to Him, “Master, do You wash my feet?” YaHuWSHuWaH answered him, “You do not know what I am doing now, but you shall understand later.” Kepha said to Him, “You shall never wash
  14. 14. my feet!” YaHuWSHuWaH answered him, “If I do not wash you, you have nopart with Me.” (We are "washed" by the Word) Shimown Kepha said to Him, “Master, not my feet only, but also my hands and even my head!” YaHuWSHuWaH said to him, “He who has been bathed (skha -to fullyimmerse 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 YaHuWSHuWaH would even want to wash his feet. Because it is such a lowly service, he at first refused to let YaHuWSHuWaH wash his feet. But then YaHuWSHuWaH says something interesting “If I do not wash you, you have no part with me”. What could this mean? According to the scripturesShimown Kepha said to Him, “Master, not my feet only, but also my handsand even my head! YaHuWSHuWaH said to him, “He who has been bathed (skha -to fully immerse oneself - a Pesach command) has no need to washother than the feet, but is completely clean; and you are clean, but not all ofyou. 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 (beingimmersed 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
  15. 15. When we are cleansed in YaHuWShuWaH 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 inYaHuWShuWaH, helping one another overcome the world, which continually seeks to defile us. YaHuWSHuWaH in each one of us cleanses those stains. So the washing of one another’s feet appears to be symbolic of YaHuWSHuWaH’s cleansing of those stains. YaHuWSHuWaH said “If I do not wash you, you have no part with me” We need YaHuWSHuWaH’s Cleansing So when He had washed their feet, put His outer garment back on, andreturned again to the table, He said to them, “Do you know what I have done to you? You call Me, ‘Rabbi’ and ‘Master.’ You say so correctly, for so I AM. If I then, the Master and the Rabbi, have washed your feet, you also ought towash 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 Master, neither One Who is sent greater than He Who sent Him. If you know these things, blessed are you if you do themBecause YaHuWSHuWaH 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
  16. 16. We, has believers are YSCHaREL. Egypt represents the sin laden world and all its glory. We were in bondage, in slavery to the adversary while in oursins, haSatan is the ruler and god of this world, haSatan also tries to destroythe predestinated children of YSCHaREL (us) lest we be large in number. The taskmasters, perhaps symbolic of demons, afflicted those in bondage. We were also afflicted of our sins. YaHuWaH heard the cry of the children of YSCHaREL who wanted to be delivered from their bondage. Shemot 3:7Then YaHuWaH said, “I have surely seen the affliction of My people who are in Mitsrayim, and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters, for Iknow 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 Master YaHuWSHuWaH 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 MaSHYaCH willfirst arise. Then, we who survive and are alive will be caught up in the cloud to meet our Master YaHuWSHuWaH in the air and remain with Him forever. In which a trumpet figures prominently in the scenario]
  17. 17. [Vs. 16-17 from the Aramaic] Because our Adon Himself shall come downfrom heaven with a command, with the voice of the chief messenger, and with the shofar of Aluah, and the dead who are in the Anointed shall rise first.Then we, the living who are left over, shall be caught away together with them in the “Column of Cloud” for the meeting of our Adon “wherever we’re gathered”, and so we shall always be with our Adon. ..... (this resurrection ofthe dead in verse 16 is on Yom Teruach - Day of Shouting/Trumpets. .... verse 17 is 10 days later on Yom Kippur at the sounding of "The Great Shofar" .... 31. Matt. 24He 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. [YeSHAYaHUW 11:12 He shall set up a Banner [MaSHYaCH] for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of YSCHaREL, and gather together the dispersed of YaHuDaH from the four corners of the earth] YeSHAYaHUW 27: 12-13 It shall happen in that day, that YaHuWaH shall thresh from the flowingstream of the Parath to the brook of Mitsrayim; and you shall be gathered one by one , O children of YSCHaREL. It shall happen in that day that a great shofar shall be blown; and those who were ready to perish in the land ofAshshuwr, and those who were outcasts in the land of Mitsrayim, shall come;and they shall worship YaHuWaH in the Qodesh Mountain at Yahrushalom. [cf. YirmeYahuw’s 23:7-8 Therefore, behold, the days come, says YaHuWaH, that they shall no moresay, As YaHuWaH lives, Who brought up the children of YSCHaREL. out of
  18. 18. the land of Mitsrayim; 23:8 but, As YaHuWaH lives, Who brought up and Who led the seed of the House of YSCHaREL. out of the north country, andfrom all the countries where they have been scattered. They shall dwell in their own land. Matt. 24:31He 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. Nehemyah 1:8“Remember, I beg You, the Word that You commanded Your servant Moshah, saying, ‘If you trespass, I will scatter you abroad among the peoples; but if you return to Me, and keep My Commandments and do them, though your outcasts were in the uttermost part of the shamayim, yet will I gather them from there, and will bring them to the place that I have chosen, to cause My Name to dwell there.’[This is the gathering of His living ones - the dead were raised 10 days earlier at Yom Teruach] (Note * 24:31: The Great Shofar is blown on Yom Kippur (The Day of Atonement), and is representative of, and blown in introduction of, the Jubilee Year. - the dead are raised 10 days earlier at the" " last shofar" - Day of Trumpets (Torah and witness clarified translation) 1 Kepha: ... those of us being protected by the Force of YaHuWaH, and through persuasion for a rescue ready to be disclosed during a latter feast season!
  19. 19. Yowm Kippuríym, Deuteronomy 32: 42I 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 YaHuWaH, YaHuWaH delivered us in the same manner as He delivered YSCHaREL 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 YaHuWaH but wants us to remain in sin and bondage Pharaoh (haSatan) tries to prevent people from worshipping YaHuWaH. The Egyptians worshipped idols. YaHuWaH 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 YaHuWaH had predicted. In the same way, YaHuWaH 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 YaHuWaH. The following plagues were Frogs, Lice, Flies, disease on their animals ,, Boils on man and animals, hail, locust anddarkness. In each of the plagues, YaHuWaH spared the area in Egypt that the YSCHaREL’ities dwelt in. The last Plague however, was an important one . Moshah said, (plague10.) “This is what YaHuWaH says: ‘About midnight Iwill go out into the midst of Mitsrayim, 11:5 and all the firstborn in the land of Mitsrayim shall die, from the firstborn of Paraoh (the one who sits on histhrone), even to the firstborn of the female servant who is behind the mill; andall the firstborn of livestock. 11:6 There shall be a great cry throughout all theland of Mitsrayim, such as there has not been, nor shall be any more. Moshah said, (plague10.) “This is what YaHuWaH says: ‘About midnight I will go out into the midst of Mitsrayim, and all the firstborn in the land of
  20. 20. Mitsrayim shall die, from the firstborn of Paroh (the one who sits on histhrone), even to the firstborn of the female servant who is behind the mill; andall 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. YaHuWaH told Pharaoh through Moshe Shemot 11: 4-6Moshah said, (plague10.) “This is what YaHuWaH 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 histhrone), even to the firstborn of the female servant who is behind the mill; andall 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 YSCHaREL a dog won’t even bark or move its tongue, against man or animal; that you may know that YaHuWaH makes a miraculous distinction between the Mitsrites and YSCHaREL. Jewish tradition says that because the dogs remained quiet at this time, YaHuWaH 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 perhapsthe dogs were silent because they would not even sense the death angel among those who had gathered as YSCHaREL. Anubis, the Mitsrayimian god ofmummification 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
  21. 21. 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 haveenclosed 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 psalmist prays for deliverance from the power of a dog. This is a Tehillim YaHuWSHuWaH quoted while dying, so on that level it has aspecial 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 YaHuWSHuWaH is referred to Judges. 13:18; The Malak YaHuWaH said to him, “Why do you ask about My Name, seeing it is Wonderful?” YSCHaREL was poor and downtrodden, while Mitsrayim was powerful, but like the many stories of a prince being willing to give up a great militaryalliance to marry a commoner whom he loved, YaHuWaH was willing to part with Mitsrayim in order to redeem YSCHaREL. YeSHAYaHUW 43:3He 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.
  22. 22. Yirm. 31:31 Behold, the Days come, says YaHuWaH, that I shall cut a new (renewed) covenant with the House of YSCHaREL and with the House of Yahuwdah: YaHuWaH did not make such a distinction between Jews and the “Gentiles” (northern-kingdom YSCHaREL’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 YSCHaREL. 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”. YaHuWaH wants YSCHaREL to be a light to the nations, but we didn’t let Him finish making us maturebefore we exposed our pearls to the nations, and they trampled them underfoot. Now that we have the rest of the Gospel—that YaHuWSHuWaH came to restore all the tribes of YSCHaREL--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 YSCHaREL as well. Acts 15:8-9 And the Mighty Ones, who knows the heart, testified about them, giving them the Ruwach haQadosh, just like he did to us. He made no distinction between us and them, cleansing their hearts by belief.
  23. 23. YaHuWShuWaH HaMashiyach is referred to as the “Lamb of YaHuWaH”.Even before His ministry, He was spiritually called the Lamb Of YaHuWaH Yahuwchanan 1:29The next day, he saw YaHuWSHuWaH coming to him, and cried out, “Look here! This is Al-HaSeh, Aluahiyms, very Own Lamb, Who bears away the sin of the world! (Yahuwchanan was a Lewite Priest and proclaimed Yahuwshua as YaHuWaHs Lamb as is required by Torah of the Pesach Lamb.) Shemoth 34:6YaHuWaH passed by before him, and proclaimed, “ YaHuWaH, YaHuWaH a merciful and gracious Aluahiym [Mighty One], slow to anger, andabundant 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 nearlyalways mistranslated “forgive” in establishment translations, which meansACQUIT. For us who believe on His Name, He paid our punishment, bearingaway the punishment Himself, further proving He is YaHuWaH." PS for the Remnant] 1 Kepha 2:24Who 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
  24. 24. Abraham said, “Aluahiym will provide Himself, a lamb for a burnt offering, my son.” So they both went together. Aramaic: The Akeida (the binding ofYitzak) showed that YaHuWaH provided Himself as the life that was in the place of Yizaks – "a life for a life". Follow the succession of days: it has prophetic significance. MatithYahuw 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 Ruwach 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 YaHuWSHuWaH) Other times in scriptures, YaHuWSHuWaH 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 tenthousands, and thousands of thousands; saying with a loud voice, “Worthy

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 12:1YaHuWaH 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. (Abib)The first command given to the corporate people of YSCHaREL was "change your calendar". Mitsrayim was based on the sun; their calendar would be based on the moon in direct contrast. They no longer have anything to do with the sun. "There is nothing new under the sun" (Ecclesiastes), but themoon is renewed twelve times a year! (The terms "moon" and "renewing" arethe same in Ibriy.) YaHuWaH can thus still "do a new thing". The moon is said to be "born again". Interestingly, Nakdimon (Nicodemus) visitedYaHuWSHuWaH at night, when the moon is visible, and learned from thisvivid picture of rebirth. For you: The calendar stayed the same for the rest of
  26. 26. creation, and indeed the civil calendar of YSCHaREL 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. YashaYahuw 27:12-13 It shall happen in That Day that YaHuWaH shall thresh from the flowingstream of the Perath to the brook of Mitsrayim; and you shall be gathered one by one Yirm. 3:14 Only acknowledge your iniquity, that you have transgressed against YaHuWaH your Aluahiym, and have scattered your ways to the strangersunder every green tree, and you have not obeyed My Voice,’ says YaHuWaH.” “Return, backsliding children,” says YaHuWaH; “for I am married to you. Ishall take you one from a city, and two from a clan, and I shall bring you to Tsiyown O children of YSCHaREL. 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 inthe land of Mitsrayim, shall come; and they shall worship YaHuWaH in the Qodesh Mountain at Yahrushalom. and YirmeYahuw’s 23:7-8 Therefore, behold, the days come, says YaHuWaH, that they shall no moresay, As YaHuWaH lives, Who brought up the children of YSCHaREL out of
  27. 27. the land of Mitsrayim, but, As YaHuWaH lives, Who brought up and Who led the seed of the House of YSCHaREL out of the north country, and fromall the countries where they have been scattered. They shall dwell in their own land. Rev. 7:1-8; After this, I saw four Messengers standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, so that no wind would blow on earth, or sea, or against any tree. Zech. (6:1 Again I lifted up my eyes, and saw, and behold, four chariotscame out from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountainsof bronze. .... 6:4 Then I asked the Messenger who talked with me, “What are these, my Master?” 6:5 The Messenger answered me, “These are the fourWinds (Ruwach) of the sky, which go forth from standing before the Master of the whole earth.)[Trees are a picture of righteous men Tehillim 1:3; He will be like a tree planted by the streams of water,that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also does not wither. Whatever he does shall prosper. YashaYahuw 44:3;For I shall pour water on the thirsty, and streams on the dry ground. I shall pour My Ruwach on your seed, and My blessing on your offspring: YirmeYahuw 17:7
  28. 28. Blessed is the man who trusts in YaHuWaH, and Whose trust YaHuWaH IS. Revelation 7:2 I saw another Messenger ascending from the rising of the sun, having theseal of the living Aluahiym. He cried with a loud voice to the four Messengers who had been given power to harm earth and sea. (Trumpets 1-4), Revelation 7:3saying, “Do not harm the earth, or the sea, or the trees, until we have sealed the servants of our Aluheinu upon their foreheads!” Revelation 7:4 I heard the number of those who were sealed, one hundred forty-four thousands, sealed out of every tribe of the sons of YSCHaREL: Revelation 7:5 of the tribe of YaHuDaH were sealed twelve thousands, (YaHuWaH be praised) of the tribe of Reuwben twelve thousands, (behold a son) of the tribe of Gawd twelve thousands, (how fortunate)

  30. 30. When the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted thewoman [New YSCHaREL] who gave birth to the male Child. Two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, that she might fly into the wilderness - [of people?] to her place (she had been there before),.... Debarim 32:11, “Like an eagle that stirs up its nest that hovers over its young HE spread HIS wings and caught them, HE carried them on HIS pinions.” Matt. 24:15“When, therefore, you see (perceive) the abomination that lays waste (the trueBelief), which was spoken of through Danial the prophet, standing in the Set- apart Place (let the reader understand), [Danial 9:27, 11:31] Mattiyahu 24:16-22 Then let those who are in Yahuwdah flee to the mountains. Let him who is on the housetop (in temporary Sukkot shelters?) not go down to take out things that are in his house. Let him who is in the field (in temporary Sukkot shelters?) not return back to get his clothes. But woe to those who are withchild and to nursing mothers in those days! Pray that your flight shall notbe 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. Unless those days had been shortened by YaHuWaH, no flesh would have been saved. But for the sake of the chosen ones, those days shall be shortened. [Are these the sealed 144,000 of YSCHaREL - of chp. 7:1-8? - are they the "seed" of YSCHaREL that YaHuWaH shall use to fulfill His promises to YSCHaREL to "replant them in to the land of YSCHaREL - not because of
  31. 31. anything good they have done but to bring praise and esteem to His Almighty Kadosh Name as stated in Yehezqel 36:31-38 ? ... Shemot 19:4 "You have seen what I did to the Mistrites, and how I bore you on eagles wings, and brought you to Myself. ]...... Yehezqel 20:33-38 As I live, says the Master YaHuWaH, surely with a mighty hand, and with an outstretched arm, and with wrath poured out, shall I be King over you:20:34 and I shall bring you out from the peoples, and shall gather you out of the countries in which you are scattered, with a mighty hand, and with an outstretched arm, and with wrath poured out; and I shall bring you into the wilderness of the peoples, and there shall I enter into judgment with you faceto face. Like as I entered into judgment with your fathers in the wilderness of the land of Mitsrayim, so shall I enter into judgment with you, says the Master YaHuWaH. I shall cause you to pass under the rod (marking the tithe), and I shall bring you into the bond of the covenant (covenant of blood); and I shall purge out from among you the rebels, and those who disobey against Me; Rev 7:1...... sealed the bondservants of our Aluahiym on their foreheads! YashaYahuw 54:2 ,3,814-17
  32. 32. “Enlarge the place of your tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of your habitations; don’t spare: lengthen your cords, and strengthen your stakes. For you shall spread out on the right hand and on the left; and your seedshall possess the nations, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited. .... “For a small moment have I forsaken you; but with great mercies shall I gather you. In overflowing wrath I hid My face from you for a moment; but with everlasting loving kindness shall I have mercy on you,” says YaHuWaH your Redeemer. ...... In righteousness you shall be established: you shall befar from oppression [tribulation], for you shall not be afraid; and from terror, for it shall not come near you. Behold, they may gather together, but not by Me: whoever shall gather together against you shall fall because of you “Behold, I have created the smith who blows the fire of coals, and brings forth a weapon for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy. No weapon that is formed against you shall prevail; and you shall condemn every tongue that rises against you in judgment. This is the heritage of the servants of YaHuWaH , and their righteousness which is of Me,” says YaHuWaH. Micah 4:9-10; 5;3 Now why do you cry out aloud? Is there no sovereign in you? Has your counselor perished, that pains have taken hold of you as of a woman in travail? Be in pain, and labor to bring forth, daughter of Tisiyown, like a woman in travail; for now you shall go forth out of the city, and shall dwell in the field, and shall come even to Babel. There you shall be rescued. ThereYaHuWaH shall redeem you from the hand of your enemies. .... 5Therefore Heshall abandon them until the time that she who is in labor gives birth. (To the body of MaSHYaCH). Then the rest of His brothers shall return to the children of YSCHaREL. (from the great tribulation - the uncountable multitude!)
  33. 33. .... so that she might be nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. Yash. 27:12-13] He reiterates the promise given in 16:14-15, changing “the descendants of YSCHaREL” to the more specific “seed of the House of YSCHaREL”, that is, the Northern Kingdom in particular, and its physical, not just ruwachual seed. YaHuWaH 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 YSCHaREL, saying, ‘On the tenth day ofthis 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 ofthe slaughterd Lamb, YaHuWSHuWaH—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 YaHuWSHuWaH was from among the flock of YSCHaREL.
  34. 34. Shemot 12:4And 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 onelamb 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 12:6and you shall watch over it until the fourteenth day of the same month; and the whole assembly of the congregation of YSCHaREL shall kill it at the evening.Watch over it: or observe it, to be sure there were no defects. YaHuWSHuWaHwas "observed" or inspected by everyone from the day of the "triumphal entry" until Passover: the Prushim 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 YaHuWaH. The whole congregation: Tehillim 22 says he was surrounded by dogs (an idiomfor 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
  35. 35. "between the evenings" could possibly mean between the sunset twilight andthe 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 YaHuWSHuWaH 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, YaHuWaH 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 YaHuWaH’s Hand (Mashiyach) comes. YaHuWSHuWaH, thus, is the one who strikes Mitsrayim down Shemot 12:7-8They 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 YSCHaRELites 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 thisthing 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.
  36. 36. 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 thesoul of the gospel". The glad news is about the blood of YaHuWSHuWaH. Onereason 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 whyYaHuWSHuWaH 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) YaHuWSHuWaH therefore said to them, “Most certainly I tell you, unless you [in the ruwach] eat the body of the Son of Adam and [in the ruwach] 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 rememberance of the bitterness of sin that we endured when we were in bondage Shemot 1:14
  37. 37. 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 YaHuWSHuWaH;s Death Zechariah 12:10 I will pour on the House of Dawiyd, and on the inhabitants of Yahrushalom,the ruwach of acceptance/favour and of supplication [begging for favor]; and they will look on Me, Aleph wTaw, Whom they have pierced; and they shallmourn for Him, as one mourns for His only Son, and will grieve bitterly for Him, as one grieves over His Firstborn. (Me is YaHuWaH .... Him is YaHuWSHuWaH) 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 YaHuWaH 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 YaHuWSHuWaH would baptize with fire, not water.) Its entrails: The intestines were wrapped around the head and itwas called the "crowned slaughter"; YaHuWSHuWaH, Who is Himself called
  38. 38. "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 YaHuWaH 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 YaHuWSHuWaH 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 12:11This 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" [yahshua], 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 YaHuWaHs throne, fell on their faces and worshiped YaHuWaH, saying:
  39. 39. “We give You thanks, O YaHuWaH, 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 Master, 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 respectyour father and mother, "you will live a long life, full of blessing." And nowa word to you fathers. Dont make your children angry by the way you treat them. Rather, bring them up with the discipline and instruction approved by YaHuWaH. Slaves, obey your earthly masters with deep respect and fear. Serve themsincerely as you would serve haMashiyach. Work hard, but not just to please your masters when they are watching. As slaves of haMashiyach, do the will of YaHuWaH with all your heart. Work with enthusiasm, as though you were working for YaHuWaH rather than for people. Remember thatYaHuWaH will reward each one of us for the good we do, whether we are slaves or free And in the same way, you masters must treat your slaves right.Dont threaten them; remember, you both have the same Master in heaven, and He has no favorites. Finally, be strong in YaHuWaH, and in the strength of His might. Put on all of YaHuWaHs armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies and tricks of the Devil. Because we do not wrestle against fleshand 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 YaHuWaH shall punish the army of the high ones on high, and the kings of the earth on the earth.
  40. 40. Use every piece of YaHuWaHs 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 YaHuWaHsrighteousness. 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 yourshield to stop the fiery arrows aimed at you by hasatan. Put on deliverance as your helmet, and take the Sword of the Ruwach HaQodesh, which is theWord of Aluahiym. Pray at all times and on every occasion in the Power of Ruwach HaQodesh. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all Nastarims everywhere.And pray for me, too. Ask YaHuWaH to give me the right words as I boldlyexplain YaHuWaHs secret plan that the Besorah is for the nations, too. I amin chains now for preaching this message as YaHuWaHs ambassador. But pray that I will keep on speaking boldly for Him, as I should. Tychicus, amuch loved brother and dependable helper in YaHuWaHs 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 YaHuWaH the Father and the Master YaHuWSHuWaH haMashiyach May YaHuWaHs favour be upon all who love our Master YaHuWSHuWaH 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.
  41. 41. 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: I AM YaHuWaH.Cross: or pass through, the word for “Hebrew”, so YaHuWaH Himself became a Hebrew here! Aram., "reveal Myself in..." Gods: Aram., "abominations". The last of the gods of Mitsrayim was Parohs own son, the next "incarnation of Ra", so to speak. He humiliated the greatest world power before killing them. Shemot 12:13The 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 YSCHaREL 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 (#4150/2282) to YaHuWaH: throughout your generations you shall guard it as a feast by an ordinance forever.
  42. 42. 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 ofunleavened bread keeps our “circle” in balance. Keeping it in season connectsus 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 putaway 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 YSCHaREL. Note that we are not just commanded to not eat leaven, but to actually eatunleavened bread. YaHuWSHuWaH calls himself the bread that came down from heaven Yahuwchanan 6:51-56 I AM the Living Bread [Torah] which came down out of heaven. If anyoneeats [in the ruwach] 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 thisman give us his flesh to eat? YaHuWSHuWaH therefore said to them, “Most certainly I tell you, unless you [in the ruwach] eat the body of the Son of Adam and [in the ruwach] drink His blood, you do not have life in yourselves (Qnoma - Underlying Substance). He who [in the ruwach] eats from My body and [in the ruwach] drinks from My blood has endless life, and I shall raise him up at the Last Day. For truly My body is food, andtruly My blood is drink. 6:56 He who [in the ruwach] eats My body and [in the ruwach] drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him.
  43. 43. 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 fromhim, was created male and female. The root meanings of these words, though, are “marked (or striped) and pierced”, which was true for YaHuWSHuWaH (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 inthem, 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, becauseonly as we gather can we depict the reconstructed Hekal built of living stones and the Body of MaSHYaCH 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. Shemot 12:18In 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.
  44. 44. 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 YSCHaREL, whether he be a foreigner, or one who is born in the land.Cut off from the congregation: exposed to any and every threat, where thereare 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” isliterally “sour”, the root word in Ibriy for “leavened bread”. This season is onefor dealing with the selfishness in ourselves before it become full-grown into sin. Yaaqob 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.’” Shemot 12:21
  45. 45. Then Moshah called for all the elders of YSCHaREL, and said to them, “Draw out, and take lambs according to your families, and kill the Passover. Shemot 12:22You 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. Shemot 12:23For YaHuWaH will pass through to strike the Mitsrites; and when He sees theblood on the lintel, and on the two doorposts, YaHuWaH 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 YaHuWaH will give you, according as He has promised, that you shall guard this service. 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
  46. 46. Shemot 13:8 You shall tell your son in that day, saying, ‘It is because of that which YaHuWaH did for me when I came forth out of Mitsrayim.’ And Shemot 12:27that you shall say, ‘It is the slaughter of YaHuWaH’s Passover, Who passedover the houses of the children of YSCHaREL in Mitsrayim, when He struck the Mitsrites, and spared our houses.’” The people bowed their heads and worshiped.An adult may say “The MaSHYaCH is our Passover and we have been sparedfrom death. YaHuWaH 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 YaHuWaH for His great deliverance and His Great act of love for us. Let us bow our heads and worship YaHuWaH Say/or/Sing Tehillim 103 Praise YaHuWaH, my being! All that is within me, praise His Set-apart Name! Praise YaHuWaH, O my being, and don’t forget all His benefits; Who covers all your sins;
  47. 47. [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. YaHuWaH executes righteous acts, and justice for all who are oppressed. He made known His ways to Moshah, His deeds to the children of YSCHaREL. YaHuWaH 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.
  48. 48. 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 YaHuWaHs 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. YaHuWaH has established His Kisei in the heavens His reign rules over all. Praise YaHuWaH, you Messengers of His, who are mighty in strength, who fulfill His Word, obeying the Voice of His Word. Praise YaHuWaH, all you armies of His, you servants of His, who do His pleasure. Praise YaHuWaH, all you works of His, in all places of His dominion. Praise YaHuWaH, O my being! Continuing Shemot 12:28
  49. 49. The children of YSCHaREL went and did so; as YaHuWaH had commanded Moshah and Aharon, so they did. Shemot 12:29 It happened at midnight, that YaHuWaH struck all the firstborn in the land of Mitsrayim, from the firstborn of Paroh who sat on his throne to thefirstborn of the captive who was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of every beast. Shemot 12:30 Paroh 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 Shemot. 12:31He called for Moshah and Aharon by night, and said, “Rise up, get out from among my people, both you and the children of YSCHaREL; and go, serve YaHuWaH, 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!” 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
  50. 50. 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” YaHuWaH’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 theair 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 YSCHaREL did according to the word of Moshah; and they asked of the Mitsrites jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and clothing. Shemot 12:36YaHuWaH gave the people favor in the sight of the Mitsrites, so that they let them have what they asked. They despoiled the Mitsrites. 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 Yahrushalom; for your Light [the time of your deliverance] is come, and the Splendor of YaHuWaH is risen on you. YashaYahuw 60:2For, behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the peoples; but YaHuWaH shall arise on you, and His Splendor shall appear over you.
  51. 51. Break forth: or appear over you. This is an allusion to the exemption of the land of Goshen from the plagues (especially the thick darkness) that cameover Mitsrayim just before the Exodus, and the pillar of fire that appeared over the camp of YSCHaREL, and again it harbingers YaHuWaH’s deliverance which will overshadow even that Exodus. YirmeYahuw 16:14-15 YashaYahuw 60:3Nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. [Sukkot terminology] 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 beenlarged; 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 YaHuWaH.
  52. 52. YashaYahuw 60:7 All the flocks of Qedar shall be gathered together to you, the rams ofNbayowth 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 thefour winds, from one end of the sky to the other. YashaYahuw 27:12 It shall happen in that day, that YaHuWaH shall thresh from the flowing stream of the River to the brook of Mitsrayim; and you shall be gathered one by one,children of YSCHaREL. 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 theyshall worship YaHuWaH in the Qodesh Mountain at Yahrushalom. [1 Kepha: ... those of us being protected by the Force of YaHuWaH, and through persuasion for a rescue ready to be disclosed during a latter feast season! [Yowm Kippuríym, Deuteronomy 32: 42] &1 Thess. 4:17]
  53. 53. YashaYahuw 60:9Because the coastlands shall wait for Me, and the ships of Tarshiysh at theirlead, to bring your sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, for haShem of YaHuWaH your Aluahiym, and for the Qadosh-One of YSCHaREL, because He has made you esteemed. 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. YashaYahuw 60:11 Your gates also shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nornight; that men may bring to you the wealth of the nations, and their kings led captive. YashaYahuw 60:12For 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 theyrefuse to come up to Yahrushalom for YaHuWaH’s feasts, Zech. 14:16-17).]
  54. 54. 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 Redwoodswill grow there again after the earth’s axis shifts back to where it was prior to 701 B.C. and YSCHaREL’s climate is restored so it again becomes a “landflowing with milk and honey”. No grove of trees of any kind is to be planted near an altar to YaHuWaH (Deut. 16:21), but as the first time, wood from these trees can be used to help build His Hekal. Since trees also representpeople, 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 60:14The 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; andthey shall call you The City of YaHuWaH, The Tsiyown of the Qadosh-One of YSCHaREL.Afflict: or humble. Bowing: as Yoseph’s brothers did when he was exalted andthey were humbled. It is His people who make up His city. Though at one time Yahrushalom refused to be gathered together under YaHuWSHuWaH’s “wings” (the corners of His garments, where there is healing), and the Hekal
  55. 55. that had leprous stones had to be torn down, He said He would rebuild it inthree 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 royalbreasts; and you shall know that I, AM YaHuWaH, your Deliverer, and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Yaaqob. 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 [YaHuWShuWaH], and your gates Praise. YashaYahuw 60:19The sun shall be no more your light by day; neither for brightness shall themoon give light to you: but YaHuWaH shall be to you an everlasting Light, and your Aluahiym your esteem.
  56. 56. This scenario is reiterated in Rev. 21:23, which places it in the “eighth day”— the new beginning after the Mashiyach’s thousand-year-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 YaHuWaH 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 [netser] of My planting, the work of My hands, that I may be esteemed. YashaYahuw 60:22The little one shall become a thousand, and the small one a strong nation; I,YaHuWaH, shall bring it speedily in its proper season.” [Rev. 1:1 and 21:23 - the eighth day]
  57. 57. 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. Blessed be YaHuWaH who will hasten its time. Shemot 12:37 The children of YSCHaREL 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 YSCHaRELs descendants are in transition from worship on the Day of the Sun to the festival ofSukkoth, 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 hishomeland. Sukkoth was also the name of the last place Yaaqob 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 12:38A mixed multitude went up also with them, with flocks, herds, and even very much livestock.
  58. 58. "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 YSCHaRELites had been enslaved, yet they remained a distinct people. Many of the Mitsrayimians and other peoples they had enslaved also joined the YSCHaRELites in theExodus, since many of them had recognized YaHuWaHs hand in the "greatacts of judgment". YaHuWaH 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 Paroh. Theseother Mitsrayimians, obedient to the command to sacrifice the lamb, could be redeemed, though they must become part of YSCHaREL to be able to leave. But many YSCHaRELites later proved to still have Mitsrayim mixed with YSCHaREL in their hearts. Shemot 12:39 They baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they brought forth out ofMitsrayim; 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 YSCHaREL, who had settled in Mitsrayim, was four-hundred thirty years. Because of how few generations there are between Yaaqob 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 sojournings" before they came to Mitsrayim, which began at birth for all of them, since the family did not settle down inKanaan 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 to them. Thesegmentation into 30 and 400 may represent a distinction between the years
  59. 59. before they came to Mitsrayim and the years they spent there, since YaHuWaH had only told Abraham his descendants would be in a foreign land for 400 years. Linguistically, it is not certain whether this would include the years Yaaqob 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 "sojournings" 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 YaHuWaH went out from the land of Mitsrayim. They baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they brought forth out ofMitsrayim; 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 YaHuWaH for bringing them out fromthe land of Mitsrayim. This is that night of YaHuWaH, to be much observed of all the children of YSCHaREL throughout their generations. . Shemot 12:43 YaHuWaH 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
  60. 60. . Shemot . 12:45 A foreigner and a hired servant shall not eat of it. . Shemot 12:46In 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 YaHuWSHuWaH were broken to speed their death before the Passover Shabbaton, YaHuWSHuWaH had already died, so he fulfilled thisrequirement 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 YSCHaREL shall guard it. . Shemot 12:48 When a stranger shall live as a foreigner with you, and will guard the Passover to YaHuWaH, let all his males be circumcised, and then let himcome near and guard it; and he shall be as one who is born in the Land: but no uncircumcised person shall eat of it.
  61. 61. . Shemot 12:49One 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 YSCHaREL but have committed themselves to the community of YSCHaREL; there are no second-class citizens once one joins the household. . Shemot 12:50 All the children of YSCHaREL did so. as YaHuWaH commanded Moshah and Aharon, so they did. . Shemot 12:51 It happened the same day, that YaHuWaH brought the children of YSCHaREL out of the land of Mitsrayim by their divisions. YaHuWSHuWaH 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
  62. 62. 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 anyoneeats [in the ruwach] 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 6:52The Yahuwdiym therefore contended with one another, saying, “How can this man give us his flesh to eat?” Yahuwchanan 6:53 YaHuWSHuWaH therefore said to them, “Most certainly I tell you, unless you [in the ruwach] eat the body of the Son of Adam and [in the ruwach] drink His blood, you do not have life in yourselves (Qnoma - Underlying Substance). Yahuwchanan 6:54He who [in the ruwach] eats from My body and [in the ruwach] 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
  63. 63. He who [in the ruwach] eats My body and [in the ruwach] drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him. Yahuwchanan 6:57As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father; so he who [in the ruwach] 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 ruwach] 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 allwith 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 6:61But YaHuWSHuWaH knowing in Himself that His taught ones murmured at this, said to them, “Does this cause you to lose trust?
