Shame of Trespass

Home   

Ezra 9:6**…O my God, I am too ashamed and humiliated to lift up my face to YOU, my God, for our iniquities have (sins, trespasses) have risen higher than our heads, and our guilt has grown up to the heavens.

In 458 B.C., Ezra, a minister of God’s law led the second return of exiles from Babylon. He was highly valued and trusted by the King of Babylon, Artaxerxes. Upon returning, the temple had been completed and the country flourished. It seemed that many blessings and good works had been done. However, just as the reality of today’s world, there were great corruptions and massive abuses of God’s laws. When those in higher position as the leaders then and now fall astray in disobediences to our God, serious problems develop, This Leads others in disobedience to the wishes of the Master which seems right to man. However, human reasoning and excuses will never justify disobeying God’s commandment to His people to not intermarry, with pagan nations before the coming of the Messiah.

Deuteronomy 7:3-4 ** “Nor shall you make marriages with them (pagans). You shall not give your daughter to the son, nor take their daughter for your son. For they will turn your sons away from following ME, to serve other gods; so the anger of the Lord will be aroused against you and destroy you suddenly”.

Since few pure blooded Jewish women were available in Judah since the return of the first exiles in 538 B.C., a local beautiful pagan woman would be desired for marriage. However, this law of refrain in Deuteronomy and scribed by Moses was to assure the genealogy bloodline from Abraham to King David to the Holy birth of the Messiah, Y’shua Christ Jesus would be fully documented (Matthew 1:1-17). With the arrival and sacrifice of the Passover Lamb of God, our Lord rescinded the ordinances of Moses such as sacrifice of animals, sprinkling of blood, temple worship of the High Priest and even ripped out the temple curtain at the time of His Holy Lamb’s death (Mark 15:38, Luke 23:45, Matthew 27:51).  Therefore, by the flesh and blood of Christ Jesus a living veil became the resurrected High Priest over the house and Church of God. And with faith without wavering from our God who is faithful with His promises; we must constantly stir up love and good works as we see the day of destruction approaching (Hebrews 10:19-24). The entire world now has the opportunity to have the gift of life as His adopted children of all nations who believe and follow the rules of God (Romans 8:15, Ephesians 1:5, Galatians 4:5-7).  

The rules of God, the Ten Commandments spoken and written by God in Deuteronomy 5:7-21 have never changed as most professed Christians of this world make up their own rules because the adversary of God continues to blind this perishing world (2 Corinthians 4:4, John 12:40, Isaiah 6:9-10). Unfortunately, mankind is veiled by the evil god of this world by Satan, the adversary of our Creator. The dietary laws of Leviticus have never been repealed.  The High Holy Sabbath days ordained by God have never been repealed, rescinded or changed by God. The Gospel of John clearly refers to the day of the sacrifice of God’s Holy Lamb, the Messiah was a High Sabbath Day which was Passover (John 19:31).  Historical records show the Passover Sabbath that year was on Thursday, allowing the Messiah, Y’shua Christ Jesus to remain three full days and three nights in the tomb according to scripture.  Scripture of our Lord also advises there are three High Holy Sabbath Feasts each fall of the year. These Feasts are in addition to the weekly seventh day Sabbath. The Feast of Trumpets marks the coming of Christ to establish the new Heaven and new earth for those that believe.  This year of 2010, the Jewish New Year of 5771; marks the Feast in Leviticus 23:23-25, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17. The following ten days becomes the High Sabbath Day of Atonement honoring Jesus. Jesus is the sacrificial Lamb that has forgiven our sins in atonement for all generations. See Leviticus 23:26-32, Hebrews 9:28 and 10:4. The feast of Tabernacles five days later is the final harvest, prophetically reminding believer and doers in Christ; both Jew and Gentile will be gathered together to live under His Lordship for eternity (Leviticus 23:33-43 and Zechariah 14:16-19). His Lordship will gather His people, Jew and Gentile from all nations and place them with the Lord in Zion.

The Prophet Joel spoke the word of our Lord hundreds of years before our Lord repeated the words to John who documented that Y’shua, Christ Jesus was truly the Messiah and the Savior of the world. Christ was proven again and again by His numerous Messianic miracles that could only come from our Creator God.  The Prophet Joel stated in verse 3:20-21, saying “But Judah shall abide (inhabited) forever and Jerusalem from generation to generation.  For I will acquit them of their guilt of bloodshed, who I had not acquitted; for the Lord dwells in Zion.” ** These prophesies give advice for acquittal for all peoples since the fall of mankind in Eden that never knew Christ but then will have the opportunity for acquittal and redemption of sin.

Mankind is still under the curse of death from our Creator God since being cast out of the Garden of Eden for disobedience.  This curse will be removed when our Messiah, Y’shua Christ Jesus returns to claim His throne in Jerusalem. Our Lord will destroy all disobedient people who hate Him by not keeping His laws. Those obedient children of the entire world will no longer die, hunger, thirst, pain mentally or physically. Mankind will have just joy forever. And the peace of our Lord which is beyond understanding will rest on His faithful servants who humble themselves and become as the ‘little children of Zion’ forever. The obedient children of our Creator God, deceased or alive are being staged to enter into the peace of our Lord. Those who walk uprightly enter into peace; they find rest as they lie in death (Isaiah 57:2). In Isaiah 66:12-13, our Lord says “…Behold, I will extend peace to her (Jerusalem) like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream. Then you shall feed; on her sides shall you be carried, and be dandled on her knees. As one, whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you; and you shall be comforted in Jerusalem.”                  Please tell other about this Holy site!
