Foot Washing Night

This is what Solomon and Daniel did in their prayers. They confessed the sins of the nation and of themselves. Let him seek peace and pursue it. We are de-leavening right now, all in preparation for the Days of Unleavened Bread. It is symbolic of putting sin out of our lives. Do not cover up your secret sins, nor walk past the obvious elephants in the room. Take care of them and address them and turn back to the truth and have your prayers heard.

He who covers his sins shall not be blessed; but whoever confesses and leaves them shall have mercy. Proverbs Yehovah listens to those who fear Him, who stand in awe of His greatness, goodness and power. Ask Him to expose your secret sins that you do not want anyone to know about and those which you try to hide from even yourself.

Get rid of them the same way you are doing now with the leaven in your homes. Get rid of it and do not bring it back in. And Jehovah listened and heard. And a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who feared Jehovah, and for those esteeming His name. And I will pity them as a man has pity on his son who serves him. Malachi The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous one avails much.

And he prayed earnestly that it might not rain, and it did not rain on the earth for the time of three years and six months. James Our Bibles are full of examples of people who prayed, and Yehovah heard their prayers and answered them. Repent of your sins and your secret sins and return to the Truth. Let your name be found in the Book of Remembrance as one whose prayers were heard and answered.

Take the time this year, at the appointed time, to pray for your family on Aviv 7, That falls on March 14, , this year. Now almost two months ago I was talking to Wilson and the subject came up of forming a Beit Din. Having seen this come before and how those who do this do so in order to be in control, I was not interested in being a part of it. But I suggested to Wilson that he write up how we could form one. The very last verse in the book of Judges is a very sad verse to read, especially after all we have just read of the many sad stories that Israel was going through after the death of Joshua.

A time of about years until Saul was made King. The House of Israel needs a Beit Din. I know time is running out and doing so very fast.

It does not change this fact. We need a body of Elders to lead in judging matters such as the barley and the sighting of the moon. They must use the crescent moon and the Barley for the Holy Day date which rules out the Hebrew Calendar people. We all need to think about this. I encourage you to put your thought about this subject in the Comments below. Here is another report from Wilson about what I asked him to write about. The issues being, what does it mean to be Hebrew Roots, and the need for Judges for the community.

These two are joined but separate. I would say this for starters. We have to crawl before we can walk, walk before we can run, and run before we can compete in a 26 mile marathon. We do need Judges in order to resolve issues that can not be resolved between brothers, but this is like signing up for the marathon while we are still crawling. I, of course see the need for a Beit Din house of Judges and have for a number of years. Having had fellowships break up because of issues, that in my view are simple, and outside of the walk of Hebrew Roots. For example, many years ago, two families started to send their children back to a youth group for teens at a church that specifically taught against some of the core tenants of the Hebrew Roots faith.

This was after they had not gone for years. I began to see the steady erosion of the faith of the young people as they began to ask the same basic questions about why we keep TORAH and the confusion grew from there. When the parents were confronted, one family repented and quit sending their children. They were told by two mature brothers in the group, that it was a problem, and not conducive to remaining in fellowship, that in fact, they were choosing a different path and they were choosing to leave the fellowship if they would not stop sending their children to church. They were upset and felt like they were being mistreated.

They were told that if they felt the fellowship was in error, they should call a national leader in the Hebrew Roots movement to resolve the issue. I share this story to give just one example, of many, for the need for those able to make righteous judgements between the brethren. These types of issues are not rare, underscoring some of the need for Judges. But we have to have some agreement on the rules before people will submit to a Judge. How do we start? How do we start to crawl?

About a year and a half ago, during the Days of Awe, I was impressed with this thought, the need for us in the Hebrew Roots faith to define what are the pre-requisites for fellowship. Or, what does it mean to be Hebrew Roots? What I realized is that all of the failed fellowship attempts were mostly because we did not establish what were the important areas of agreement BEFORE we started meeting as a multi-family fellowship.

Most of this was due to ignorance and immaturity on everyone involved, mine included. Y—H asks the question in Amos This is really at the heart of what I am saying. Here is a prime example. We are coming into the Passover season. Can anyone take part of the Passover Festival? In ignorance, I did before I should have. A well-intentioned fellow church brother had a Passover Seder at his house. I have come to understand that this as a covenant meal, that I am entering into a contract with my Maker by taking part. We had good intentions, but is that enough?

What are some of the requirements to eat the Pesach meal? My point here is not to talk about circumcision, but I use it as an example because it can be such a divisive issue. If people that we think we can fellowship with are not at the place to except this as a requirement, among others eating clean, keeping Sabbath- sundown Friday to sundown Saturday, etc. I know this is too harsh for some, but consider this in Mark No one is good except God alone. So, what happened next? Did Yeshua run after the young man and plead with him to please follow Him?

No, He did not. The young man made a choice that the cost to follow Yeshua was too high, and Yeshua just let him walk away. There are minimums to follow Y—H, I just really want the body to think about what those are for them, based on Scripture. At least then people would have a starting point to know if they are compatible enough to start to fellowship together. And why? These are some of my thoughts on where the body is now, and where we need to go.

I know I only addressed one aspect of what we discussed. I plan to continue as time and the Spirit allows. Feel free to share as you see fit. And the day after the Passover, on that very day, they ate of the produce of the land, unleavened cakes and parched grain. And the manna ceased the day after they ate of the produce of the land.

And there was no longer manna for the people of Israel, but they ate of the fruit of the land of Canaan that year. And this year of the exact same Spring Feast days are taking place. This year the day of the Passover is taking place Friday evening and Saturday day. This is the 15th of the month of Aviv.

It can and does fall on any day of the week in other years. But this year it lands on the Sabbath exactly as it did when Joshua recorded this event in Joshua And we are also told that they have to make this wave offering on the morrow after the Sabbath during the days of Unleavened Bread.

On the morrow after the Sabbath the priest waves it. And from the morrow after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering, you shall count for yourselves: seven completed Sabbaths. And if this was all there were for scriptures on this subject they would be correct but then Yehovah says one more thing.

How Do I keep Passover

Sivan 6 can end up on any day of the week in many years. Every once in while it lands on the right time as it does this year. We have the Jews keeping Passover on the right day, the 15th and the Bible in Joshua 5 shows us it was the 15th because the morrow after is the wave sheaf day and this is the day they no longer had manna to eat but they ate from the produce of the land. But then they make this error and begin to count the omer from the 16th in every year.

Add to this the fact that over time they changed the fall Holy Days by postponing them by one or two days. This is the Hebrew calendar that many of you follow. And because of these rules, they have fallen away from keeping Shavuot and the Fall Feasts at the proper time. Does it matter? After all, they have their heart in the right place. Again I ask this question that I have asked many times now. Last Sabbath with the declaration of the New Year I received many requests from new brethren who are just learning and want to keep the Holy Days for the first time this year.

How do you deleaven your home and how to keep the Passover and what is the foot washing. So I have sent this out early in hope to help some to understand this special time of year better. The thing to do is do your best and learn as much as you can. Yehovah will bless you with more understanding and next year you will grow in knowledge and understanding even more. But the most important thing is to take the first step and just do it. This is not the Passover meal.

After supper, Yehshua and His apostles went over to the Mount of Olives also known as the Mount of Offence where He prayed that this cup He was about to bear might pass from Him. He was arrested this night and brought before the Sanhedrin and found guilty of blasphemy. This all took place through the night and it is now the morning of the 14th day of Nisan.

This year the 14th of the 1st month starts on Thursday evening at sunset and is also the day part of Friday, March Pilot gave in to the demands of the crowd and ordered Yehshua crucified. They then led Him and two other criminals back to the Mount of Offence, Calvary, Golgotha, the Skull or the place where the head count was done, where He was nailed to the wood that went across between His hands and then hoisted Him up and nailed Him to the Almond tree having already cursed the Fig tree so that He would not be nailed to it.

At the ninth hour, Yehshua said it was finished just as the High Priest does when he has finished sacrificing the lambs that were to be slaughtered this day. And just as the sheep were slaughtered so was Yehshua as our Passover sacrifice at the exact same time 3 PM in the afternoon.

Once the lamb is sacrificed then the blood of the lamb is smeared on the doorpost and lintel. This is now the time to eat the Passover lamb as the sunsets and as the 15th day of Nisan begins. This is the night when the Death Angel passed over those who had placed the blood on the doors. But those who had not the blood on the doorposts lost the first born at midnight. In the morning after all the firstborn of Egypt had been killed, it is then when Israel gets up and leaves. I have told you this for all the new people now starting to keep Passover and the rest of the Holy Days for the very first time.

It is truly awesome to see so many going back to the Torah and the ways of our Ancestor who came out with Moses and crossed the Red Sea. These are the events as they took place chronologically in that order. It is important to know this as many today lump the whole thing together and call it Passover and then they get confused over the timing of events because they never bothered to sort them out. Many are asking how do we do this? Most of those who call themselves Christian do not keep Passover even though Yehshua did.

Let me tell you what I do. It is not the end all be all way. It is what I try to do. You may develop your own customs. This year Thursday evening is the Memorial of the foot washing. This is not the time for social gathering or small talk. I treat this evening with great sobriety and respect and do not soicalize. It is the night our Saviour is betrayed because of our sins. As often as you drink it, do this in remembrance of Me. This is why we do the de-leavening of our homes and of ourselves. We are examining ourselves and finding out that we are guilty of sin and need this Passover sacrifice.

We do not take part in it halfheartedly. It is a somber time. This is not a night to be talking about this or that. It is the memorial of the night Yehshua was betrayed and then killed. And the more you think about it the more somber the night is. Without this first step pictured by the Passover, there would be no hope for humanity. But because Yehshua gave His life as our Passover sacrifice, we have a potential beyond human imagination! All the Holy Days as told to you in Lev 23 explain this great potential.

Notice this is before Passover and after the super, they were gathered for, had taken place. So this is not and was not the Passover meal as some teach. John And before the Festival of the Passover, Yehshua knowing that His hour had come that He should move out of this world unto the Father, having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end. And you are clean, but not all of you. I have had the distinct pleasure of doing this with a couple of men on the Mount of Olives one year and another friend the year before.

It surely has a very special meaning to me now having done this there at this place at this time. In your own family, this will help to teach the children to serve each other in love and not to always think of themselves. This is a very humbling thing to do, especially as a father to allow your son to do your feet or you do his. It can be emotional as you submit in humility.

Tremendous lessons learned in doing this one exercise. I think it is worth considering the events that occurred on the night of the Last Supper, particularly the foot washing. What does it mean for us? Is it just something we do on the night of the 14th or is it something that represents the way we strive to be all year round? The foot washing is not simply an act of humility, as has often been taught in churches that do the foot washing, but it is the ultimate act of UNITY! Joh Peter asks for a body wash but the Messiah rebukes him demonstrating the spiritual nature of what he was doing, as in he was expressing a desire and intent to spiritually clean his disciples.

Despite knowing what Judas was about to do Yehshua got down on his knees and expressed a desire for Judas to be spiritually cleansed and to share a part with him. Furthermore when we have our feet washed we are recognizing that we are taking a share or portion with the one who is washing our feet. We are willing to have them wash us which means willing to have them exhort us as ones that looks out for our spiritual well being, our spiritual cleanliness.

We are not in this alone we are united with the people that we wash and the people that wash us, we are all sharing in each others portion and the Messiahs portion. That is worth thinking about for a while. Joh Just as Joh started the story of the foot washing with the concept of love so the Messiah ends it with a clear instruction to love one another. He goes even further and states that their love will be a sign to those outside that they were his disciples.

The Messiah states that it is our love for one another that determines the proof of following him. How sad is it that the reality of this scripture has not become our core essence. Will you lay down your life for one another? You cannot have love without unity and you cannot have unity without love. This teaching is speaking of something that we all should listen to. At Sukkot each year many of us gather together and we all do not agree on everything. Some keep the Conjunction moon and others the sighted and as such the Holy Days do not always line up together. But we all come together knowing what it is like to be disfellowshipped for our beliefs.

We can argue all we want the rest of the year but at the Feast times we come together and work together. As you break the bread in front of your group listen to the breaking of each piece. Heb By that desire we have been set apart through the offering of the body of Yehshua Messiah once for all. Footnote: 1Rom. If anyone eats of this bread, he shall live forever. And indeed, the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.

The bread that we break, is it not a sharing in the body of Messiah? Now let me ask you when is the lamb ever beaten as Yehshua was? The answer is it never is. So what is beaten? It is the barley which is beaten to give up the grain which is then roasted as a grain offering on the wave sheaf day which is the day after the weekly Sabbath during the days of Unleavened bread, or in other words the first day of the week.

The Sunday that comes during the days of Unleavened Bread. Yehshua said the bread represented His body, which He voluntarily gave to be beaten and to die as part of His complete sacrifice for us. He suffered that He might take our infirmities and bear our sicknesses;. Mat And when evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. Yehshua is our Healer. Bread is also associated with life, and Yehshua is the Bread that makes eternal life possible as we allow Him to live in us.

And the fact that His followers all partake of this symbol of Him highlights the unity He wants us to have. Isa For He grew up before Him as a tender plant, and as a root out of dry ground. He has no form or splendour that we should look upon Him, nor appearance that we should desire Him — 3 despised and rejected by men, a man of pains and knowing sickness.

And as one from whom the face is hidden, being despised, and we did not consider Him. Yet we reckoned Him stricken, smitten by Elohim, and afflicted. The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed. And Yehovah has laid on Him the crookedness of us all. He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, but He did not open His mouth. And as for His generation, who considered that He shall be cut off from the land of the living? For the transgression of My people He was stricken. Footnote: 1See 1 Peter Through His knowledge My righteous Servant makes many righteous, and He bears their crookednesses.

Luk And when the hour had come, He sat down, and the twelve emissaries with Him. The wine represents redemption. Although this meal Yehshua is eating is not the Passover meal he is showing them what the symbols of that meal mean. The cup of Elijah derives from a problem in Talmudic Law. The problem is not knowing exactly how many cups of wine to drink at the Seder, four or five.

The number of cups is based on the four expressions of deliverance, but there is actually a fifth expression of deliverance. So, the rabbis came up with the perfect Jewish compromise. In some Seder services, each person at the Seder contributes some wine to the fifth cup, symbolizing everyone sharing in the messianic hope. At other Seder services, wine from the cup of Elijah is mixed with the fourth cup.

Heb For if the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the defiled, sets apart for the cleansing of the flesh, 14 how much more shall the blood of the Messiah, who through the everlasting Spirit offered Himself unblemished to Elohim, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living Elohim? Heb So, brothers, having boldness to enter into the Set-apart Place by the blood of Yehshua, 20 by a new and living way which He instituted for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, 21 and having a High Priest over the House of Elohim, 22 let us draw near with a true heart in completeness of belief, having our hearts sprinkled from a wicked conscience and our bodies washed with clean water.

His sacrifice made the forgiveness of our sins and the removal of our guilt possible. He paid the debt that we were supposed to pay. That debt required our life for breaking the Covenant. This opened the way for the New Covenant that Yehovah makes with believers, writing His laws on our hearts. We make this covenant when we are baptized and renew it each year at the Passover.

This is why Passover and Atonement are tied together. And he who receives Me, receives Him who sent Me. To help show that this was not the Passover meal I have said in the past that the bread Yehshua was leavened and not Matzos because Matzos does not soak up the sauce. Others will argue this point differently so I bring it to your attention. Also note that Judas was thought to be going out to buy things for the Feast. If they were keeping Passover then it would already be the Feast and He could not purchase anything at that time.

So the Feast was still coming after this meal was eaten. And from the morrow after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering, you shall count for yourselves: seven completed Sabbaths. And if this was all there were for scriptures on this subject they would be correct but then Yehovah says one more thing.

Sivan 6 can end up on any day of the week in many years. Every once in while it lands on the right time as it does this year. We have the Jews keeping Passover on the right day, the 15th and the Bible in Joshua 5 shows us it was the 15th because the morrow after is the wave sheaf day and this is the day they no longer had manna to eat but they ate from the produce of the land. But then they make this error and begin to count the omer from the 16th in every year. Add to this the fact that over time they changed the fall Holy Days by postponing them by one or two days.

This is the Hebrew calendar that many of you follow. And because of these rules, they have fallen away from keeping Shavuot and the Fall Feasts at the proper time. Does it matter? After all, they have their heart in the right place. Again I ask this question that I have asked many times now. Last Sabbath with the declaration of the New Year I received many requests from new brethren who are just learning and want to keep the Holy Days for the first time this year.

How do you deleaven your home and how to keep the Passover and what is the foot washing. So I have sent this out early in hope to help some to understand this special time of year better. The thing to do is do your best and learn as much as you can. Yehovah will bless you with more understanding and next year you will grow in knowledge and understanding even more.

But the most important thing is to take the first step and just do it. This is not the Passover meal. After supper, Yehshua and His apostles went over to the Mount of Olives also known as the Mount of Offence where He prayed that this cup He was about to bear might pass from Him. He was arrested this night and brought before the Sanhedrin and found guilty of blasphemy. This all took place through the night and it is now the morning of the 14th day of Nisan.

This year the 14th of the 1st month starts on Thursday evening at sunset and is also the day part of Friday, March Pilot gave in to the demands of the crowd and ordered Yehshua crucified. They then led Him and two other criminals back to the Mount of Offence, Calvary, Golgotha, the Skull or the place where the head count was done, where He was nailed to the wood that went across between His hands and then hoisted Him up and nailed Him to the Almond tree having already cursed the Fig tree so that He would not be nailed to it.

At the ninth hour, Yehshua said it was finished just as the High Priest does when he has finished sacrificing the lambs that were to be slaughtered this day. And just as the sheep were slaughtered so was Yehshua as our Passover sacrifice at the exact same time 3 PM in the afternoon. Once the lamb is sacrificed then the blood of the lamb is smeared on the doorpost and lintel. This is now the time to eat the Passover lamb as the sunsets and as the 15th day of Nisan begins.

This is the night when the Death Angel passed over those who had placed the blood on the doors. But those who had not the blood on the doorposts lost the first born at midnight. In the morning after all the firstborn of Egypt had been killed, it is then when Israel gets up and leaves. I have told you this for all the new people now starting to keep Passover and the rest of the Holy Days for the very first time. It is truly awesome to see so many going back to the Torah and the ways of our Ancestor who came out with Moses and crossed the Red Sea.

These are the events as they took place chronologically in that order. It is important to know this as many today lump the whole thing together and call it Passover and then they get confused over the timing of events because they never bothered to sort them out. Many are asking how do we do this? Most of those who call themselves Christian do not keep Passover even though Yehshua did. Let me tell you what I do. It is not the end all be all way. It is what I try to do. You may develop your own customs.

This year Thursday evening is the Memorial of the foot washing. This is not the time for social gathering or small talk. I treat this evening with great sobriety and respect and do not soicalize. It is the night our Saviour is betrayed because of our sins. As often as you drink it, do this in remembrance of Me. This is why we do the de-leavening of our homes and of ourselves. We are examining ourselves and finding out that we are guilty of sin and need this Passover sacrifice.

We do not take part in it halfheartedly. It is a somber time.

The Feasts of Jehovah

This is not a night to be talking about this or that. It is the memorial of the night Yehshua was betrayed and then killed. And the more you think about it the more somber the night is. Without this first step pictured by the Passover, there would be no hope for humanity. But because Yehshua gave His life as our Passover sacrifice, we have a potential beyond human imagination!

All the Holy Days as told to you in Lev 23 explain this great potential. Notice this is before Passover and after the super, they were gathered for, had taken place. So this is not and was not the Passover meal as some teach. John And before the Festival of the Passover, Yehshua knowing that His hour had come that He should move out of this world unto the Father, having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end.

And you are clean, but not all of you. I have had the distinct pleasure of doing this with a couple of men on the Mount of Olives one year and another friend the year before. It surely has a very special meaning to me now having done this there at this place at this time. In your own family, this will help to teach the children to serve each other in love and not to always think of themselves.

This is a very humbling thing to do, especially as a father to allow your son to do your feet or you do his. It can be emotional as you submit in humility. Tremendous lessons learned in doing this one exercise. I think it is worth considering the events that occurred on the night of the Last Supper, particularly the foot washing. What does it mean for us? Is it just something we do on the night of the 14th or is it something that represents the way we strive to be all year round?

The foot washing is not simply an act of humility, as has often been taught in churches that do the foot washing, but it is the ultimate act of UNITY! Joh Peter asks for a body wash but the Messiah rebukes him demonstrating the spiritual nature of what he was doing, as in he was expressing a desire and intent to spiritually clean his disciples. Despite knowing what Judas was about to do Yehshua got down on his knees and expressed a desire for Judas to be spiritually cleansed and to share a part with him. Furthermore when we have our feet washed we are recognizing that we are taking a share or portion with the one who is washing our feet.

We are willing to have them wash us which means willing to have them exhort us as ones that looks out for our spiritual well being, our spiritual cleanliness. We are not in this alone we are united with the people that we wash and the people that wash us, we are all sharing in each others portion and the Messiahs portion. That is worth thinking about for a while. Joh Just as Joh started the story of the foot washing with the concept of love so the Messiah ends it with a clear instruction to love one another. He goes even further and states that their love will be a sign to those outside that they were his disciples.

The Messiah states that it is our love for one another that determines the proof of following him. How sad is it that the reality of this scripture has not become our core essence. Will you lay down your life for one another? You cannot have love without unity and you cannot have unity without love. This teaching is speaking of something that we all should listen to. At Sukkot each year many of us gather together and we all do not agree on everything. Some keep the Conjunction moon and others the sighted and as such the Holy Days do not always line up together.

But we all come together knowing what it is like to be disfellowshipped for our beliefs. We can argue all we want the rest of the year but at the Feast times we come together and work together.

As you break the bread in front of your group listen to the breaking of each piece. Heb By that desire we have been set apart through the offering of the body of Yehshua Messiah once for all.

The Sunday that comes during the days of Unleavened Bread. Yehshua said the bread represented His body, which He voluntarily gave to be beaten and to die as part of His complete sacrifice for us. He suffered that He might take our infirmities and bear our sicknesses;.

Mat And when evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. Yehshua is our Healer. Bread is also associated with life, and Yehshua is the Bread that makes eternal life possible as we allow Him to live in us.

And as one from whom the face is hidden, being despised, and we did not consider Him. Yet we reckoned Him stricken, smitten by Elohim, and afflicted. The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed. And Yehovah has laid on Him the crookedness of us all. He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, but He did not open His mouth. And as for His generation, who considered that He shall be cut off from the land of the living?

For the transgression of My people He was stricken. Footnote: 1See 1 Peter Through His knowledge My righteous Servant makes many righteous, and He bears their crookednesses. Luk And when the hour had come, He sat down, and the twelve emissaries with Him. The wine represents redemption.

Heb So, brothers, having boldness to enter into the Set-apart Place by the blood of Yehshua, 20 by a new and living way which He instituted for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, 21 and having a High Priest over the House of Elohim, 22 let us draw near with a true heart in completeness of belief, having our hearts sprinkled from a wicked conscience and our bodies washed with clean water.

To help show that this was not the Passover meal I have said in the past that the bread Yehshua was leavened and not Matzos because Matzos does not soak up the sauce.

Others will argue this point differently so I bring it to your attention. Also note that Judas was thought to be going out to buy things for the Feast. If they were keeping Passover then it would already be the Feast and He could not purchase anything at that time. So the Feast was still coming after this meal was eaten. I shall lay down my life for You. Truly, truly, I say to you, the cock shall not crow at all until you have denied Me three times. And these words I did not say to you at the beginning, for I was with you. It is better for you that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper shall not come to you at all, but if I go, I shall send Him to you.

Footnote: 1See Lk. For He shall not speak from Himself, but whatever He hears He shall speak, and He shall announce to you what is to come. That is why I said that He takes from what is Mine and announces it to you. We do not know what He is saying. And you shall be grieved, but your grief shall become joy. Ask, and you shall receive, in order that your joy might be complete. Again, I leave the world and go to the Father. By this we believe that You came forth from Elohim. Yet I am not alone, because the Father is with Me.

In the world you have pressure, but take courage, I have overcome the world. And they have received them, and have truly known that I came forth from You, and they believed that You sent Me. I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours. Footnote: 1See And I speak these words in the world, so that they have My joy completed in them.

Joh Having said these words, Yehshua went out with His taught ones beyond the Qidron torrent, where there was a garden, into which He and His taught ones entered. Shall I not drink the cup which My Father has given Me? All that we have just read was the night before Yehshua was arrested. Pray after this evening and think about what you have just experienced and then what Yehshua was going through this whole night. We may very well be praying this in the very same garden Yehshua did on the Mount of Olives this year.

We wait to see. Take it from the sheep or from the goats. Then all the assembly of the congregation of Yisrael shall kill it between the evenings. It was at the top of this town where Yehshua was killed. The top of this twon is the Mount of Offence. And on all the mighty ones of Mitsrayim I shall execute judgment. I am Yehovah. And when I see the blood, I shall pass over you, and let the plague not come on you to destroy you when I smite the land of Mitsrayim.

And you shall observe it as a festival to Yehovah throughout your generations — observe it as a festival, an everlasting law. We are to remember forever this night when Israel left Egypt and how it came about and we are also to remember all the symbols which point us to Yehshua. For also Messiah our Passover was offered for us. Yehshua fulfilled the symbolism of the Passover lamb. Indeed, all the sacrificial sin offerings represented and were fulfilled by Yehshua. Heb But Messiah, having become a High Priest of the coming good matters, through the greater and more perfect Tent not made with hands, that is, not of this creation, 12 entered into the Most Set-apart Place once for all, not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood, having obtained everlasting redemption.

Having now shared with you what I do on the Night of the foot washing before Passover I would like you all to do some more research and learn the meaning of the Door and the Threshold and the Blood of this covenant. Why is the Bride Carried through the Door on her wedding day? For the week leading up to Passover, I have removed all bread products and yeast and baking soda from my house.

I vacuumed the upstairs and down stairs and check the freezer and between the cushions of the couch and in the duct vents and I did the windows at the same time. I also clean the inside of my truck and the backhoe I work in. I also do my lunch pail and then take all of these crumbs out of the vacuum and out to the garbage so they are not on my property when Passover comes. Passover in will begin on the Friday evening after the sun has set March 22 and Saturday, March 23 during the day. On Passover, we read each of the chapters of Exodus and divided it up and let people make short comments on each chapter as we enjoy the Passover meal.

We let the children read too so that all at this special night are involved. You could do this and or watch the Ten Commandments. Passover is one of the most important holidays, and the Seder is the meal that kicks off the entire celebration. This is a meal that is eaten in haste with your shoes on and staff in your hand ready to flee.

It is a rehearsal of a future flight we will have to keep. After the meal, many people stay up all night singing and talking about the Exodus. Some of us are not up to that but it is up to you to make this your Feast by the way your family keeps it. Some have asked who can come. I say anyone who is a believer and or those who are learning and not argumentative. I also believe you are to eat unleavened bread for all seven days so have a box of matzos handy and do attempt to eat some each day.

It will remind you of what the Israelites were doing this week. And yes you should think about this as if you were with them fleeing pharaoh and then on the last day of unleavened bread they crossed the red sea. For those of you who are new do the best you can with what you understand. Get together with others of like mind and share this Holy Day season with them. May Yehovah bless your understanding and knowledge as you grow closer to Him this week pregnant in meaning and rich in teaching lessons.

Shabbat Shalom from Cambodia, What an amazing newsletter! Thank you Joseph. This all brings such clarity and awe! I will be celebrating Passover alone but, you have shown me how. I am not worthy to even know these things but by the Grace of Yehovah and your hard work, I have come to understand. I am so grateful. Yet at the same time, I am deeply saddened that none of my family or friends cares to learn.

In the Christian community people remember and celebrate the day of the week that Yeshua was resurrected. They miss so much! This Passover I will be sharing in spirit with my sightedmoon family. May all of you be blessed and come closer to Yehovah. May he rain down Manna upon you so that you are filled with the Bread of Life!

Hi Joe, this is the best piece of knowledge I will cherish for ever. I knew the bread Yehshua broke with his talmadim was not passover but a communion one,and was leavened. Trying to reason with my Messianic brethren was futile.

Parshas Parah

I had to leave. Thanks to Yehovah for his Love. Joe,the newsletter is supper. Every Torah observant needs to have it. Could you please simplify it and give us for use in the festive week. Its wonderful. Yehovah bless you. Shalom Joseph, The new people are blessed to have this clear teaching.

Yehovah bless you good Joseph. L shana tova beloved Joseph I bless the day when in march you came to Switzerland to teach us Pessah…your last word spoken to me were : if you love me, says Yeshua, keep my commandements, And here i stand 4 years later to study Torah. Joe, in this newsletter you mention Yeshua being hung on an almond tree. Can you explain how you got that? I know it mentions he is hung on a tree, but how are you distinguishing that it may have been an almond tree rather then an olive tree? I did find this:.

I see from the equating of Yeshua as the chosen branch to an almond tree. Is this what you use? Am I still missing something all these years? The gospels record the odd story about Yehshua cursing the fig tree. In the garden of Eden, there were two trees. We think of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil as an apple tree, it was not. You remember that Adam and Eve made loincloths out of fig leaves.
