Notes From This Study:

1 Corinthians 10:11
New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

11 These things happened to them to serve as an example, and they were written down to instruct us, on whom the ends of the ages have come.

From Facebook user Holly Cross:
This may help us as we share with Christians WHY we are Keeping The Feasts of YHWH:
In the End, there is no such thing as “Jew” or “Gentile”… There is only “In Covenant” or “Out of Covenant” with YHWH.
To learn how to “Get in Covenant,” begin by learning:
      • who you are (Genesis) 
      • where you should be going (Exodus) 
      • to be Set Apart and Holy (Leviticus)
      • to Trust YHWH as He guides you (Numbers)
      • to OBEY HIS INSTRUCTIONS so you may Live (Deuteronomy)
This will not be too hard for you, because Messiah laid down His Life to make it possible for you to “Get in Covenant” with His Father! He even sent His Set Apart Spirit to give you strength to finish the Race! If you think of yourself as a “Gentile Christian” you may be suffering from Spiritual Identity Theft. The only Cure is to start at the very BEGINNING.

The Passover/Unleavened Bread readings:

The Timing of Yeshua’s Death, Burial and Resurrection:

Like so many other things in modern Christianity, “Good Friday” is a lie. How do you get three days and three nights dead (Matthew 12:40) from Friday to the equally pagan lie of Easter Sunday? I can’t believe I believed that nonsense for most of my life.
Yeshua died on a Wednesday Passover, was dead during Unleavened Bread, Wed. to Thrus. night (1), Thurs. to Fri. night (2) and Fri. to Sat. night (3) and was up at the end of the Sabbath and the beginning of First Fruits.
The reason the Passover lamb was to be kept for 4 days (10th to 14th according to Exodus 12:1-6) was because Yeshua is the “Lamb slain from the foundation of the world” (Rev. 13:8). A day with the Lord is as a thousand years (2 Peter 3:8). Thus the Lamb of God was kept by the Father for 4,000 years [4 God days] from the time of Creation until the Lamb was sacrificed. And just like the grain offering which had to be eaten within 2 days (Lev. 7:15-17), so also do we have 2,000 years [2 God days] to partake of the “Bread of Life” (John 6:33-51), which came from (or was born in) Bethlehem (NOT on Dec. 25th), which means the “House of Bread”. After that it’s time for the fire.
Yeshua used “Moses and the prophets” to explain who He was to the men on the Road to Emmaus (Luke 24:27), because those were the Scriptures that all testified of Him in countless ways! Until we dump the vain (pagan) traditions of men and get back on YHWH’s page, we will never truly know/understand who are Savior was/is/is to come. 
Exchange the lie for the truth and learn just how amazing our JEWISH Savior (Revelation 5:5), who fulfilled the Torah (Matthew 5:17-19) really is!

First Day of the Week… or First of the Sabbaths?

Before understanding the Feasts of YHWH, I was just as clueless as the next guy concerning the things of God and how His plan/calendar works. I’m still learning and certainly don’t have it all figured out yet. But one thing I have figured out is that someone really started messing with our Bible and CHANGING the Sabbath.

We are now in the season of “counting the omer” leading up to Pentecost. Without an understanding of the Feasts (specifically the counting of the omer), people have no clue what “first day of the week” means in their Bible – I certainly didn’t. Like most, I thought it was talking about Sunday. And for good reason: Someone jacked with the text – big time! Take Acts 20:7 for instance:

7 And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.

Note: the word “day” is NOT in the text. It is inserted either by ignorant translators or by those with an agenda (I suspect the latter). And the word “week” is a BOGUS translation for “sabbaton”. Over and over and over again, “sabbaton” is the word for SABBATH and never for “week” in (normal) Greek. For more on that, see:http://www.babylonrisingblog.com/sabbaton.html

After First Fruits, we begin a seven week count of Sabbaths toward Pentecost. Hence, Yeshua rose on (or just before) First Fruits at the beginning of that count of Sabbaths:

Matthew 28:1 In the end of the [weekly] sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.

While it is true that the “first day of the week” follows the Sabbath, we can find a far better and MUCH more accurate translation of that particular Scripture in the Jubilee Bible:

Matthew 28:1 Now well along on the sabbath, as it began to dawn on the first of the sabbaths, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre.

He rose after the last of the Sabbaths that precede the specific counting of seven Sabbaths leading up to Pentecost.

The same is true for Acts 20:7. Let’s back up to verse 6 though for context:

Acts 20:

 6 And we sailed away from Philippi after the days of unleavened bread, and came unto them to Troas in five days; where we abode seven days.

7 And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.

Here we see that they concluded the Feast of Unleavened Bread and in less than a week, they arrived in Troas, apparently in time to celebrate the first of the seven Sabbaths (that are COUNTED) leading up to Pentecost.

Again, the Jubilee Bible blows KJV out of the water with a far more accurate rendition of the Greek:

Acts 20:

 6 And we sailed away from Philippi after the days of unleavened bread and came unto them to Troas in five days, where we abode seven days.

7 And the first of the sabbaths, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart the next day, and continued his word until midnight.

Look, I’m still searching this stuff out myself guys. And as I continue to do so, I become more and more convinced that YHWH has NOT changed His mind about His commandments, including the Sabbath, which we are told to REMEMBER – not forget, diss and/or change.

Ecclesiastes 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

1 John 5
1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.

2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.

3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

Revelation 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

I’m thinking this stuff is going to become more and more important for us in these Last Days.

Malachi 4
4 Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.

5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord:

6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

There is a reason lines are being drawn in the sand concerning these things. On one side, you’ll have those who will obey YHWH and follow Him and on the other, you will have those who will follow the “lawLESS” one.

Matthew 24:12

And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

Iniquity is sin. Sin is lawlessness:

1 John 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

All who advocate for dissing the law are thus advocating for sin.

Matthew 7:
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity [lawLESSness].

That’s about as clear as it gets. I don’t know about you, but I most certainly do NOT want to ever hear those words directed at me.

Still searching…

KJV – “turtles??” Ooops!

Leviticus 12:8

And if she be not able to bring a lamb, then she shall bring two turtles, or two young pigeons; the one for the burnt offering, and the other for a sin offering: and the priest shall make an atonement for her, and she shall be clean.

Leviticus 15:29

And on the eighth day she shall take unto her two turtles, or two young pigeons, and bring them unto the priest, to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

Numbers 6:10

And on the eighth day he shall bring two turtles, or two young pigeons, to the priest, to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation:
No. Sorry KJV. She is not to bring TURTLES! But rather turtledoves: 

Luke 2 (KJV)

22 And when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were accomplished, they brought him to Jerusalem, to present him to the Lord;

23 (As it is written in the law of the Lord, Every male that openeth the womb shall be called holy to the Lord;)

24 And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons.

Speaking of birds…

Leviticus 14 (KJV)

And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

This shall be the law of the leper in the day of his cleansing: He shall be brought unto the priest:

And the priest shall go forth out of the camp; and the priest shall look, and, behold, if the plague of leprosy be healed in the leper;

Then shall the priest command to take for him that is to be cleansed two birds alive and clean, and cedar wood, and scarlet, and hyssop:

And the priest shall command that one of the birds be killed in an earthen vessel over running water:

As for the living bird, he shall take it, and the cedar wood, and the scarlet, and the hyssop, and shall dip them and the living bird in the blood of the bird that was killed over the running water:

And he shall sprinkle upon him that is to be cleansed from the leprosy seven times, and shall pronounce him clean, and shall let the living bird loose into the open field.

How interesting! Perhaps the device used to accomplish this task looked something like this?

Spiritual Roots of Sickness:

James 5 (NASB)

13 Is anyone among you suffering? Then he must pray. Is anyone cheerful? He is to sing praises. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Then he must call for the elders of the church and they are to pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; 15 and the prayer [l]offered in faith will restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up, and if he has committed sins, they will be forgiven him. 16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.

Who was the prophet Daniel talking to in
the last two chapters of his book?
Consider the following descriptions:

Daniel 10 (NRSV)

I looked up and saw a man clothed in linen, with a belt of gold from Uphaz around his waist. His body was like beryl, his face like lightning, his eyes like flaming torches, his arms and legs like the gleam of burnished bronze, and the sound of his words like the roar of a multitude.

Revelation 1:13-15 (NRSV)

13 and in the midst of the lampstands I saw one like the Son of Man, clothed with a long robe and with a golden sash across his chest. 14 His head and his hair were white as white wool, white as snow; his eyes were like a flame of fire, 15 his feet were like burnished bronze, refined as in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of many waters.

Exodus 34:21-24 (NLT)

21 “You have six days each week for your ordinary work, but on the seventh day you must stop working, even during the seasons of plowing and harvest.

22 “You must celebrate the Festival of Harvest with the first crop of the wheat harvest, and celebrate the Festival of the Final Harvest at the end of the harvest season. 23 Three times each year every man in Israel must appear before the Sovereign, the Lord, the God of Israel. 24 I will drive out the other nations ahead of you and expand your territory, so no one will covet and conquer your land while you appear before the Lord your God three times each year.

Leviticus 26:3-13 (NRSV)

3 If you follow my statutes and keep my commandments and observe them faithfully, 4 I will give you your rains in their season, and the land shall yield its produce, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.5 Your threshing shall overtake the vintage, and the vintage shall overtake the sowing; you shall eat your bread to the full, and live securely in your land. 6 And I will grant peace in the land, and you shall lie down, and no one shall make you afraid; I will remove dangerous animals from the land, and no sword shall go through your land. 7 You shall give chase to your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the sword. 8 Five of you shall give chase to a hundred, and a hundred of you shall give chase to ten thousand; your enemies shall fall before you by the sword. 9 I will look with favor upon you and make you fruitful and multiply you; and I will maintain my covenant with you. 10 You shall eat old grain long stored, and you shall have to clear out the old to make way for the new. 11 I will place my dwelling in your midst, and I shall not abhor you. 12 And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and you shall be my people. 13 I am the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be their slaves no more; I have broken the bars of your yoke and made you walk erect.
