The Truth

 

Isaiah 26:19: NKJV: Your dead shall live; together with my dead body they shall arise. Awake and sing, you who dwell in dust; for your dew is like the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.

 

As the dew of the spring awaken the herbs of the earth, so will the dead arise from the dust of the earth. Just as Christ arose after three days and three nights, so will those that prove their love by keeping the commandments of God. Christ set the example for love. * John 14:15-16: If you love me keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper (Holy Spirit), that He (it) may abide with you forever…* Those that possess the Holy Spirit will arise to be one with God, as God is one.

 

Galatians 3:27-29: For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
There is neither Jew nor Greek (Gentile), there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed and heirs according to the promise.

 

Therefore, being a son (family of God) means all souls born of woman. Christ set the example. Jewish children used the term Abba (Father, Galatians 4:6). This is a term to show both intimacy and respect to the earthly father as well as to God.* Galatians 4:7: Therefore you are no longer a slave (to sin) but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ. * Christ purchased the elect with His own holy blood as the Lamb of God. This purchase was made at the yearly festival of Passover in 31A.D. God continues to test people to see who is worthy to become part of the holy family of one. * The Greek word for test is dokimazo. Dokimazo translates as prove, examine, test and assess.

 

Romans 12:1-2: I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God (with power of the Holy Spirit). * Satan, the devil has deceived the whole world to follow evil commandments of men. The eternal commandment of God to keep and do Passover is forever *Exodus 12:17: So you shall observe the Feast of Unleavened Bread, for on this same day I will have brought your armies out of the land of Egypt. Therefore you shall observe this day throughout your generation as an everlasting ordinance. * Exodus 12:24: And you shall observe this thing as an ordinance for you and your sons forever.

 

However, since Christ is the eternal Lamb of God, a change from yearly sacrificing an animal to God changed. The new covenant in circumcision of the flesh is also changed * Romans 2:29: But He is a Jew (and Christian) who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from God. * To be a real Jew and Christian, you must obey the Law. True circumcision is something that happens deep in your heart, not something done to your body. And besides, you should want praise from God and not from humans. Before the annual Passover festival of the Jews, we must prove ourselves to God. We must know in our heart that we are worthy to partake of unleavened bread. We must follow the steps of Christ, not the steps of the world that worships in vain. The world worships in vain because they do not do as Christ set example.

 

1 Peter 2:21: For to this you were called, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving an example, that you should follow HIS steps.*. Before the surrender to God in death, Christ followed the eternal law of God. * Exodus 13:9-10: It shall be as a sign to you on your hand and as a memorial between your eyes that the lord’s law may be in your mouth; for with a strong hand the Lord has brought you out of Egypt. You shall therefore keep this ordinance (Regulation, rule, law of God) in its season from year to year.

 

1 Corinthians 11:28, 29: 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 manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. * If you fail to understand that you are the body of the Lord (1 Corinthians 3:16), you will condemn yourselves by the way you eat and drink. * 1 Corinthians 4:16: Therefore I urge you; imitate me (Apostle Paul who imitates Jesus Christ, the Messiah).

 

The Apostle Paul reminded the first Christian churches how to properly observe the eternal Sabbath, Passover of the Jews.* 1 Corinthians 5:7-8: Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover was sacrificed for us. Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

 

Passover by true Christians and Jews is observed on the fourteenth day of the first month of the eternal Jewish calendar  The Sabbath service begins in the evening (Leviticus 23:6). It was on the evening of this day that Israel left the sin of Egypt. Passover commemorates this departure from Egypt in haste. Unleavened bread was used in the celebration because this showed that the people; had no time to put leaven in their bread as they ate their final meal as slaves to sin in Egypt. The first Christian churches established by God observed the Passover of the Jews.

 

Acts 20:6: But we sailed away from Philippi (Paul) after the Days of Unleavened Bread… * 2 Peter 2:21: For to this you were called because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example that you should follow HIS steps. * John 6:27: Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set HIS seal on HIM.

 

I remain your brothers in Christ. Be blessed until we meet again.
