SANHEDRIN: WHO VIOLATES NOAHIDE LAWS, CANNOT BE TRUSTED TO CONTROL WORLD HEALTHCARE

Sanhedrin rabbis gathered in Jerusalem’s Old City . The Sanhedrin, a religious assembly that convened in one of the Holy Temple chambers in Jerusalem, comprised 71 sages and existed during the Tannaitic period, from several decades before the Common Era until roughly 425 C.E. (credit: Flash90)

On Sunday, the World Health Assembly (WHA) will be voting on amendments proposed by the Biden administration scheduled as “Provisional agenda item 16.2”. If passed, the amendments will grant the World Health Organization’s Director-General the power to unilaterally declare health emergencies and decision-making authority over these emergencies, implementing quarantines, lockdowns, mandating vaccines, and passports. 

Many politicians have spoken out against these amendments and last week, the nascent Sanhedrin issued a ruling that if the Israeli government agrees to the agenda item, it will be “null and void from the outset.”

On Sunday, members of the nascent Sanhedrin released statements explaining their opposition to the WHO.

Rabbi Hillel Weiss, the former spokesman of the nascent Sanhedrin, emphasized that the WHO is not the correct body to run an international organization.

“The place for the nations to gather for such issues is in Jerusalem, not in Geneva, and the body to facilitate this is the Sanhedrin,” Rabbi Weiss said. He noted that in 2018, the United Nations Human Rights Council declared that abortions and euthanasia are universal human rights. “As the representative of the 70 nations, the United Nations has an obligation to uphold the Seven Noahide Laws. Abortion and euthanasia violate the prohibition against spilling blood. By allowing, actually mandating murder, the WHO has relinquished its right to represent the nations.”

N. Korea murdering Christians who secretly worship Jesus

image from www1.cbn.com
(CBN NEWS) -- The scope of persecution against Christians in North Korea has now reached the point where it is illegal to worship Jesus or even own a Bible. And the penalty is usually death.

According to reports, many believers are still gathering in secret to pray and share God's Word with one another.

Open Doors USA recently reported that government security guards discovered one such location where dozens of Christians had assembled together. The guards detained all of them. Then one by one, they killed every Christians in the room.

False Religion

Mother, uncle and grandfather charged with torturing girl, 3, to death while performing

The mugshot of a California mom accused of killing her toddler during an exorcism has been released, with horrific new details of the murder also emerging. Arely Naomi Proctor died in September last year after her mother Claudia Hernandez, 25, and her pastor grandfather performed an exorcism, according to police at the family's tiny Pentecostal church in San Jose. Claudia is accused of holding the girl's neck, squeezing it and depriving her of food, while Pastor Rene Huezo, the girl's grandfather together with her teenage uncle held her down to perform the depraved act. Claudia was charged in January, with Arely's uncle Rene Aaron Hernandez-Santos, 19, and grandpa Rene Trigueros Hernandez, 59, also charged this week. The trio's mugshots were shared on Friday, as it was claimed Claudia had stuck her fingers down her young daughter's throat to try and 'exorcise' the demon inside her. She'd grown convinced that the youngster was possessed after Arely started waking up in the middle of the night while screaming and upset. Arely endured 12 hours of torture before dying, investigators say.


When does the day begin?

 Christ warned us to be aware of false religion, customs and laws. These warnings have basically fell on deaf years but the most important "sign" that we can look for, as to the coming of Jesus again back to this world is the spread of false religion and religious practices that are contrary to God. Over the years, God's Law (THE TEN COMMANDMENTS) has been replaced by man's law. Our theologians call it "saved by grace" when truly nothing of the sort is biblically true.

Christmas, Easter, Sunday worship actually pre-date the earthly ministry of Jesus! Yes you read that correctly, these holidays have nothing to do with Christ and were being followed long before GOD became a man and walked among us. Even in the garden of Eden, the very first religious lie promulgated was the "immortal soul" doctrine. To this day, we believe the devil and that "we shall not die, but be like God" and live forever as some spirit in heaven or hell. That is Satan's lie and almost every false religion has adopted it.

In Jesus' time, the Jewish nation, after years of captivity, began to adopt Babylonian ways. They took on the Babylonian calendar and "lost" God's true perfect one, and at the same time began the truly pagan observance of "evening days."  This simply means that, like the Babylonians, they began to start their day at sunset rather than sunrise. Like everything else, the theologians of the day twisted a few scriptures which may imply evening days and ignored hundreds of scriptures that proved that God's day starts in the morning. Most Sabbath keeping churches to this day follow this pagan start of the day and continue the practice of those lawless religious leaders that killed Christ! The same ones he declared at his arrest were those who worshipped the DARKNESS, when evil reigns! Yes, the nighttime is darkness, and God IS NEVER in darkness. We read in Revelation that when Christ returns to Jerusalem, that where He is will always be in light! There will be no nighttime in the Holy City! Yes, it's in the same Bible that we all read. Revelation 21:23 "And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb [is] the light thereof."

In the very first chapter of the Bible we read "And God said, Let there be light: and there was light." 

When did this happen, in the evening time? Is there light at night? Read on..."And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. " So called the light DAY! So when GOD said "Let there be light" it became day! It was dawn!

Friday the 13th Unlucky? Think Again!

also read our message board: Do You Fear Friday the 13th?

By Bob Barney:

      We have learned since our earliest reflections that the number thirteen is unlucky. Many buildings do not have a thirteenth floor, and many people are scared to death when thirteen falls on a Friday- known as Friday the 13th. Horror movies have capitalized on the notion, this fear, that many of us feel concerning this ominous date.  Some historians believe that the fear of Friday the 13th came into being because they believe that Christ died on a Friday, the thirteenth of the month. Christ did not die on a Friday, and he certainly didn't die on the 13th of the month!  However, that is another story... For now, I want to propose another concept. That concept is that the number "13" is a lucky number! So lucky, that Satan has tried his best to obscure the true meaning of that number ever since God first gave it as a blessing - Yes a blessing! Originally, there were 12 tribes, or nations of Israel, we will see in the article below that God blessed one son more than the rest, and made him the thirteenth nation! That nation was destined by God to be the greatest nation to ever be on this earth until the return of Jesus Christ. Read on and discover that the thirteenth tribe of Israel, has indeed fulfilled Bible prophecy and has become the greatest nation that ever was, and will ever be until Christ's returns.

The Number “13” and the Identity of “Ephraim”!

The Bible Demands a Morning Day for the Sabbath

This is published with permission of the KINGDOMIFO.NET.    The Plain Truth has no affiliation with this group, but we publish articles that we think our readers should read.  The Plain Truth. Com has been revealing the Plain Truth about when the Day begins for over 20 years now   The following is a very good scholarly article on the proof of a morning Sabbath!

Does the Sabbath begin at evening (sunset to sunset) like we have been told for so many years? Why didn't the Creator say,"and the evening and the evening," day 1? Could it be possible that the words"evening and the morning" from Genesis the first chapter mean something else? 
 
Many Sabbath Keepers have come to the conclusion that the phrase "the evening and the morning" determines the beginning of a new day. Is this your thinking? Creation started with night first, then the light (day) came. Therefore, evening equals the night and the morning equals the day. This constitutes one day. 
 
Do you believe this? The evening equals the night portion of the day, and the morning equals the daylight portion of the day. Can this be proven from the scriptures?
 
Let the Scriptures speak! 
 
Genesis 1:1-5 (King James Version) 
 
1 In the [A] beginning Elohim created the heaven and the earth. 
2 And the earth was (became or had become) without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of Elohim moved upon the face of the waters. 
3 And Elohim said, Let there be light: and there was light.
4 And Elohim saw the light, that it was good: and Elohim divided the light from the darkness. (The creator separates the light from the darkness)
5 And Elohim called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. Why didn’t The Creator just say, “and the evening and the evening” were the first day.
 
We see this same pattern on each day "And the evening and the morning" second day, third day, fourth day, fifth day, and the sixth day. 
 
Light = Day and Darkness = Night ... remember this.

 
What is the evening and the morning? 
 
Definition of "Evening" 
The word evening comes from the Hebrew root word "arab" which means "to grow dark." See below. 
 
 
Definition of "Morning" 
 
 
Let's also look up the word "Day"
 
 
Basic Strong's Concordance Usage 101

The word "evening" #H6153 according to Strong's Concordance means:
1) evening, night, sunset
a) evening, sunset
b) night

So which is it? Evening or sunset or night?

"Evening and sunset" is the primary meaning and "night" is the secondary meaning. To get a clearer understanding of the meaning for "evening" we have to look at the "root word" from which it is derived. That Hebrew word is "ARAB" which means "to grow dark". The word night is not a good definition of the word "evening." 
 
However, there is a separate Hebrew word for "night" and that word is "layil." Always look at the context in which a word is used.
 
Let's read Genesis 1:1-4 again using light = day and darkness = night from Genesis 1:5 
 
1 In the [a] beginning Elohim created the heavens and the earth.
2 And the earth was (had become or became) without form, and void; and night was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of Elohim moved upon the face of the waters.
3 And Elohim said, Let there be day: and there was day.
4 And Elohim saw the day, that it was good: and Elohim divided the day from the night.
5 ..... And it came to be evening (growing dark) and it came to be morning (growing light): the first Day.

Notice the translation from The Scriptures and The Hebrew Interlinear Bible of Genesis 1:5

Is vicious attack on Bible hero a violent assault against God?

Just two weeks ago, while the attention of many in America was focused on skyrocketing inflation and the war in Ukraine, a vicious attack took place on the resting place of one of the most famous figures in the Bible.

The tomb of Joseph, the beloved son of Jacob and great-grandson of Abraham who was betrayed by his brothers before rising to the No. 2 position in the world in Egypt, was brutally vandalized by Palestinians in Israel.

When blood spills on Passover and Easter, it’s time to build the Temple

What is Hamas' greatest fear? That Israel will start to build the Temple!

One would have hoped that yesterday’s unique convergence of Passover, Easter and Ramadan would have led to a wonderful day of peace and brotherhood in the spiritual capital city of Jerusalem. Alas, any dream of religious harmony on a day holy to all three great Abrahamic faiths, was shattered by Muslim rioters who turned the Temple Mount into a bloody battlefield hurling stones at Jewish worshippers and Israeli vehicles.

Palestinian terrorists have been fanning the flames of religious violence in recent weeks, as Israelis have been preparing for the Passover holiday, observed this week. On Thursday evening, April 8, a Palestinian terrorist attacked Tel Aviv’s busy Dizengoff Square where mainly secular Israeli young people were crowded at bars and cafes, tragically murdering three Jews in their 20s. 

Shortly after the deadly massacre, Hamas explained their motive and declared, “The continuing terrorism of the occupation and its crimes, attempts to Judaize Jerusalem and to perform sacrifices in the Al-Aqsa Mosque to build its so-called ‘Temple’ during what they call ‘Passover’ — against it stands blood and bullets.”

Through their statement, Hamas exposed their greatest fear: that Israel will start to build the Temple.

For thousands of years, Jews have been praying for a return to the Land of Israel. Over the last century, we have miraculously been restored to our homeland from the four corners of the earth, but are still awaiting the proper time to build the Temple. 

Judaism is incomplete without the Temple, and Passover is a prime example, as Deuteronomy makes clear:

“You are not permitted to slaughter the Passover sacrifice in any of the settlements that Hashem your God is giving you; but at the place where Hashem your God will choose to establish His name, there alone shall you slaughter the Pesach sacrifice, in the evening, at sundown, the time of day when you departed from Egypt.” (Deuteronomy 16:5,6)

Russia IS NOT the THREAT people fear!

Repeating AGAIN- Russian Power is a myth!

Editor's Note: This article was first published in January 2008 and explains how we can understand future events if we know who is who in the Bible. God knew the future of the world when the Bible prophecies were written, and we can understand world events and the coming future when we understand what nations are mentioned in the Bible.

Now with the Ukraine-Russian problem- it is time to remember again - RUSSIA IS NOT THE THREAT TO AMERICA- according to the Bible!

by Robert R. Barney

TamsterRussia is rearing it's ugly head. Russia is the Gog and MaGog in your Bible and will play a role in the future, but Russia is never going to become the threat to the world that many fear. Both the King of the North and the King of the South found in Daniel are the key to understanding future world events. This is not to say that Russia or China or even other nations will not go to war and be a menace to the world, but in the total scheme of things, we must watch events in Europe, and the Middle East. One man, Herbert W. Armstrong, repeatedly dared to declare—years ahead of the Soviet Union’s fall—that the USSR was not the power to fear. The real power to watch, according to him, would be another force: a ten-nation “United States of Europe” that would form in the years ahead. He said that Russia would remain a thre at to the world—just not in the way most Westerners thought. Russia would combine economically and militarily with China, he predicted, to eventually create a gargantuan new Asian superpower such as the world has never seen.

What's Wrong with the Ten Commandments?

By Bob Barney

Ten-commandments-nivBelieve it or not, your neigbor may not believe that the Ten Commandments are important anymore. We read almost every week where some group is forced to take down the Ten Commandments from some public square or building, but when you question many Christians today, they claim that Jesus did away with the Law and the Ten Commandments when he died. They get this crazy idea from some misunderstood quotes from the Apostle Paul. One is:"For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law but under grace." Romans 6:14. They try to use this to try and prove an argument that Christians are not under the Law, but under grace.

So for you I ask, which of the Ten Commandments is it OK for me to break, as A CHRISTIAN. I mean just in case Jesus was wrong, when he stated... " Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 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?  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity (Lawlessness- breaking God's Laws)". Yes, I realize that Jesus claims that many good Christians, who did not follow the Law will be rejected by Him when he returns, but maybe He was in error. (look and read Matthew chapter 7)

Or John was probably also in error when he wrote: "Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law." 1 John 3. Or again, when he wrote: 
"He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him." Or when Jesus said to the rich man who asked him, “Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” (Notice by the way that Jesus didn't tell him he already had eternal life, it was just a question if he was going to live it out in heaven or hell); "to answer your question, you know the commandments: ‘You must not murder. You must not commit adultery. You must not steal. You must not testify falsely. You must not cheat anyone. Honor your father and mother.’" (For you biblical illiterates out there, Jesus is citing some of the Ten Commandments here). Maybe Jesus, John, Peter and ALL of the Old 
Testament prophets didn't get the memo from God yet that the Ten Commandments were to be abolished, but I ask again this question... Which of these Commandments is it OK to break and remain a Christian?

I will present the Ten out of order:

“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me." So I guess we can now worship other Gods?

“You shall not steal." I guess many Christian ministers are glad this has been done away with, I know Democrats are.

“You shall not commit adultery."  Thank God, I can screw whomever I love!  I can be a queer, or a whoremonger!

“You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor."   This really helps trial lawyers remain perfect Christians- and polictians too!

“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you."  Most of us today are very happy for this reversal. Our parents are always wrong anyways, just ask any teenager- or your own teenager!

“You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My Commandments."  Catholics especially are glad that this has been done away with, IN FACT they have their own 10 Commandments and leave this entire one out! Proof? HERE read this link

“You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's.”  Man, now it's OK to work on stealing your neighbor's wife away from that louse, otherwise known as her husband.... 

“You shall not murder."  I wonder if those Christians think now that I can kill them and stay faithful to God....

“You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain."  I mean, everyone has to be happy that this one is gone right? You God Damn right it is! 

“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it."  OOPS!  Now this is the only one you really have a problem with after all, isn't it?  BE HONEST with YOURSELF!

So you see, friends, if you claim the Law is abolished, you are only talking about the Sabbath Day. The day Jesus said he is LORD over. The day He said pray that your flight will not occur on (proving that the Sabbath is still in force during the End Times), the only day God has ever sanctioned! We are always to follow all of God's Law, but thanks be Jesus Christ, when we do break the laws today, we are no longer under the death penalty!  We are freed from the penalty when we realize our sin and REPENT (turn and follow the law again) and accept forgiveness.  It's just that simple!  Read your Bible, especially the words in RED!

Today is the Last Day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread - What it means for Christians

Central to our understanding of the biblical Feast of Unleavened Bread is the realization that the resurrected Jesus Christ lives His life in every individual Christian.   Today ends Passover and Unleavened Bread- Tomorrow is FirstFruits!

Growing numbers of Christians around the world are discovering and celebrating the biblical festivals outlined in Leviticus 23. By looking at the symbolism associated with these days, they are coming to view them in light of the life and mission of Jesus Christ.

After all, Jesus Christ Himself commenced the acting out of the plan of salvation by becoming our sacrificial Passover lamb. As the apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 5:7, "For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us" (compare Isaiah 53:7-9 ; 1 Peter 1:18-19 ). Furthermore, Jesus started His Church on another of these festivals, the Feast of Pentecost (Acts 2). He must have considered them important.

During the spring of the year (April 3-9th in the northern hemisphere), immediately after Passover and before the Feast of Pentecost, falls another biblical feast—the seven-day Feast of Unleavened Bread (Leviticus 23:6-8 ; Exodus 12:17-18 ). Here we'll take a brief look at the greatest event to have ever taken place during this feast—and what it means for Christians today.

Prohibition of leavened bread on Passover 'just took down Israeli government'

(Image by tali brikk from Pixabay)
 
 

(ISRAEL365NEWS) -- The ruling coalition party teeters after a member of Bennett’s own party left after a dispute over Passover kashrut in Israeli hospitals. One rabbi cited an ancient esoteric text which described just such a situation as a harbinger of the Messiah.

The coalition of Prime Minister Naftali Bennett lost its narrow majority when Idit Silman, the leader of the coalition and a member of the Knesset for Bennett’s Yamina party, announced that she will join the opposition over her objections to a Health Ministry instruction that hospitals not enforce kashrut restrictions during the upcoming Passover holiday.

SHOULD CHRISTIANS OBSERVE EASTER OR THE PASSOVER?

Easter1

Editor's Note: Last Night (April 2) night is Passover. It is a Christian holy day. Today is PASSOVER DAY and The Feast of Unleavened Bread.   The following by Garner Ted Armstrong explains.... Although the article is wrong on the REAL DATE of PASSOVER and when the DAY BEGINS, the message of the holy day comes thru!

Easter is the greatest of all "Christian" observances, closely followed by Christmas. It supposedly celebrates the resurrection of Christ. WHY, then, did Paul command the Gentile Christians to "show the Lord's DEATH" till He come? Jesus Christ Himself celebrated His famous "Last Supper," with His disciples, proclaiming that a bit of unleavened bread represented His body; that a sip of wine represented His shed blood. This was in commemoration of His DEATH for the sins of all mankind. Why is there no command anywhere in the Bible to celebrate His resurrection? Why did not the apostles celebrate it? Is the "Passover" only "Jewish," and therefore not Christian? Should Christians observe Easter? Does the Bible command Easter observance? You will be astonished at the answers! Here, from the pages of your own Bible is the PLAIN TRUTH about EASTER and the Passover!

by Garner Ted Armstrong   [printer-friendly]     [pdf format]

Easter3 You were born into a "ready-made" world. You had no voice in how it is structured; its customs, traditions, religions, or politics. It took you about two years to learn the language of your parents; about six years to learn your own indigenous alphabet; about seven or eight years to learn to read simple sentences, and to begin to write.

However, from your earliest years, long before you learned to read or write; long before you learned what "research" or "study" was, you heard about the tooth fairy, Santa Claus, the Easter bunny, and watched, no doubt, hundreds of cartoons and kiddy shows on television. From your earliest years on this earth, your parents were inculcating into your mind the traditions, customs, fables, superstitions and assumptions of their own upbringing.

The point is, you first learned of "Easter," or other religious customs through your parents or guardians. You did not research history, carefully weigh the facts, and make a reasoned decision to observe "Easter."

Millions of adults in the western world of professing Christianity have memories of those sleepy mornings when, all excited to be dragged from bed at perhaps 3:00 or 4:00 a.m., they were dressed in frilly little frocks or a new little boy's suit, complete with clip-on bow tie; white patent-leather shoes, greens and yellows—the colors of spring—and trundled off in the family car to an open air coliseum, or perhaps to a hilltop, to join with hundreds or thousands of others in an "Easter Sunrise Service."

You didn't know what "Easter" was. Only that it sounded a little like a point on the compass. Of course, the sun rose in the East. Maybe that was it? Or was it merely the opposite of "Wester"? Most likely, if you are like millions of others, you never became curious enough to go to a major encyclopedia and look up the term. We tend to take our environment for granted.

Have you ever looked into the history and origins of Easter?

7 Reasons Christians Should Celebrate Unleavened Bread Today

1

Last Night Was Passover - TODAY STARTS the FEAST of Unleavened Bread!

In 1 Corinthians 5:8, Paul says these often-overlooked words, “Let us celebrate The Feast.” What Feast is Paul referring to? Based on the context, Paul’s referent is the week-long Feast of Unleavened Bread; however, the kind of “purging of leaven” Paul is addressing here in 1 Cor 5 goes beyond that of the removal of the physical leaven of bread alone. Does the fact that Paul is addressing the deeper significance and meaning behind this special Appointed Time now “mean” an invalidation of the literal removal of leaven and the memorial (and testimonial) observances commanded in Scripture to teach our children the Gospel of God in the Passover? Or, is a believer’s observance of Unleavened Bread today part of a Greater Exodus story; a story God designed and commanded to be a memorial and testimonial act designed to specifically teach sound biblical doctrines and mature the believing community according to “the Greater Exodus” story inherent in the Gospel of God in Christ?   MORE


Tonight is the real Passover - Tomorrow the feast!

By Robert R Barney

Just that you know, because most don't, tonight is the Passover in God's Calendar. Tonight will be the Passover meal, followed by seven days of unleavened bread. Tomorrow will be the "HIGH DAY" starting at dawn. The Bible clearly points that "Christ is our Passover" and that we are to "keep the feast" (Blue Letter Bible it folks, you will find it!). Unfortunately, most Passover following Christians churches MISTAKENLY follow the Jewish calendar and have the wrong date of Passover and every other one of God's Holidays. Now you know the real date!

 The reference below is a good read on Christians and Passover, but they too follow the wrong date.

 Should Christians Follow the Passover????? Passover-2

 For a Real Scholarly Article on the real Calendar date:CLICK HERE  WARNING BORING!! But good...

 

Editor's Note: In a nutshell, the real Calendar given to Moses was SOLAR based on fixing the new year on the spring equinox. Moses was raised as an Egyptian, which also followed the SOLAR and not a Lunar-Solar Year. The Hebrew Calendar given to Moses by God was the same as the Egyptian, but starting with a different month. The year started on the spring equinox (March 20-21) instead of the summer solstice (The Egyptian new year about June 21). The Bible shows beyond any shadow of a doubt that God's calendar only has 12--- 30-day months (that's only 360 days, the true year BEFORE the Flood of Noah) and that 5 1/4 days of each year are simply NOT COUNTED!

Jesus, apostles observed Passover, not 'Easter'

Passover Meal this Saturday at Eveningtime

 

Passover is not just a Jewish holiday, says a new video series by a Christian teacher of Hebraic roots.

It is one of the "Feasts of the Lord" in the Bible, all of which have special meaning and significance for all believers in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The feasts were commemorated by Jesus and His apostles – and continued to be observed by Jesus' followers in the first century even after His death and resurrection.

New theory on date of Last Supper

First published Passover 2019

Saturday Night is This Year's Passover Meal

Forward by BOB BARNEY:  They have the wrong year, but do have the right theory! Finally, a bunch of people INCLUDING THE POPE now agrees with me!!!

image from www.new2torah.comSir Colin's book, The Mystery of the Last Supper, out this week, uses astronomy to re-create calendars, plus detail drawn from texts such as the Dead Sea Scrolls to propose a timeline for Jesus's final days.

''The claim I make is that we're misinterpreting some parts of the Gospels because we don't understand sufficiently life in the first century AD,'' he said.

Sir Colin argues that Jesus celebrated Passover early using the pre-exilic calendar, dating from before the Jewish exile to Babylon, but still used by some marginal groups in society at the time. It would have been understood by early Christians as operating alongside the official Jewish calendar, he said.

Pope Benedict XVI spoke of a similar theory in 2007, when he said Jesus probably celebrated the meal with his disciples according to the Qumran calendar, at least a day before mainstream observances.

St Patrick's day- Yet another Pagan Holiday!

image from mi9.com

From Reversespins.com Note from Bob Barney: Isn't it strange how everything we do is awash in paganism? We can't follow God's holidays, but somehow we can find every way to observe a bunch of witch doctors holidays-- and then call it Christian!

Secret Sun, March 17 is the day generally believed to be the death of St. Patrick, the British-born missionary who is credited with converting Ireland to Christianity. And as I wrote in one of my first posts on this blog:


In Egyptian mythology, Osiris was killed on the 17th day of Athyr, the third month of the ancient calendar.


3/17 is also the date of a Masonically-created holiday, St. Patrick’s Day. The story has it that the holiday was established by high level Freemason, George Washington, allegedly to reward Irish soldiers in the Continental Army. But “St. Paddy’s” has traditionally been a very minor Saint’s day in Ireland. Considering that the day has become America’s defacto Bacchanal (which takes us back to Osiris) it’s worth noting some of the parallels of this day with Solar mythology.


Osiris was believed to be the source of barley, which was used for brewing beer in Egypt.


• It’s customary to wear green on St. Patrick’s Day and Osiris was known as the “Green Man”


• The root word of Patrick is pater, the Latin word meaning father. Osiris is the father in the Egyptian Trinity.


Since then, I've been looking into the curious origin of this holiday and have found out some very interesting facts...

Where was Jesus crucified? New book tries to solve the mystery

“Scripture does have to agree with itself but it uses different words to describe where Jesus was crucified."

Where was Jesus crucified?
 

Joe Kovacs has tackled this question in his new book, "Reaching God Speed: Unlocking the Secret Broadcast Revealing the Mystery of Everything." 

 


Kovacs begins by noting what many people believe is the entire story. 

 
 
 
 

The New Testament describes the crucifixion of Jesus as taking place in Jerusalem. 

 

The verses in Matthew 27:32-56, Mark 15:21-38 Luke 23:26-49 and John 19:16-37 describe Jesus as being brought to the "Place of a Skull.”

 

Most scholars accept these verses at face value and believe that Jesus was crucified at a site immediately outside Jerusalem's walls called Golgotha that was accessible to passers-by and observable from some distance away.

 

Eusebius of Caesarea, a fourth-century Greek historian of Christianity, identified its location only as being north of Mount Zion.

 

The name Golgotha is derived from Goolgolet, the Hebrew word for skull. Similarly, in Aramaic Golgotha means “place of the skull.” The Latin word for skull is calvaria, and in English, many Christians refer to the site of the crucifixion as Calvary. 

 
 
 

This is supposedly a reference to either the skull-like appearance of the rock face and/or the presence of bones at the site. 

 

The Gospel of John states there was a garden at Golgotha and an unused tomb owned by a prominent rich man, Joseph of Arimathea, into which Jesus’ body was placed. This tomb is believed by some to be a site known today as the Garden Tomb. 

 

As Jesus had relatively few disciples at the time of his crucifixion, no church or landmark was raised at the site until the fourth century when Constantine ordered the construction of a basilica at the site he believed was Golgotha. This later became known as the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. 

 

The authenticity of this site was questioned as it stands inside the walls of Jerusalem’s Old City. Archaeologists have uncovered remains of other walls that may have existed at the time of Jesus that would put the basilica outside the city walls. 

 

As a result, there is some dispute over the precise location of events.

 

Though the consensus is that the crucifixion and subsequent burial and resurrection all took place in and around Jerusalem, another dilemma appears suddenly in the book of Revelations:

 

And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified (KJV 11:8).

REMEMBER!

By Bob Barney - The Plain Truth

SabbathThere are many phrases in the bible that contain the word “Remember.” To remember something is to imprint an image, phrase, event or memory to our brains. Hopefully we will always remember our loved ones, our favorite vacations, and especially our God! God tells us that we are to remember Them (Father and Son) always, and to remember God's Laws and instructions. God also promises us that They (Father and Son) will remember all the promises made to us! God will remember each one of us... A wonderful thought...

 

REMEMBER – NKJV (New King James Version) (God's words in RED)

God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the animals that were with him in the ark.

 and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh.

 And Moses said to the people: “Remember this day in which you went out of Egypt

Exodus 20:8

Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.

 And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth

 To such as keep His covenant, And to those who rememberHis commandments to do them.

 remember Your name in the night, O Lord, And I keep Your law.

 Remember now your Creator in the days of your youth, Before the difficult days come, And the years draw near when you say, “I have no pleasure in them”:

 I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake; And I will not remember your sins.

 Remember the former things of old, For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me,

 No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says theLord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”

 Remember the Law of Moses, My servant, Which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, With the statutes and judgments.

 Then he (one of the thieves on the cross) said to Jesus, “Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.”

So we see how important the word remember should be to all of us. Now allow your mind to enter a dream state. Dream of Heaven, the entire Universe and Earth. We know that if we believe what God says, the EARTH is the CENTER of the created physical Universe, as Heaven is the center of all Creation. In Heaven, the CENTER is the Throne of The father God and Jesus Christ. 

On Earth the center of Earth is the ancient land known as Israel, located in Palestine. To God, Israel is the center of this planet, and of all creation, other than Heaven. That's why every direction given in the Bible centers from Israel! People from the North – are peoples North of Palestine. People of the South, are those BELOW, or south of Israel. Western Coastlands, are lands WEST in the western oceans FROM Palestine (England and the Americas).

The center of Israel is Jerusalem! Jerusalem is the eternal city, the only one promised to appear in the world tomorrow.

In the Center of Jerusalem is God's Holy Temple, now destroyed, but a PROMISE to be rebuilt before the return of Christ. Christ will rule from this Temple!

In the center of the Temple is the Holy of Holies, where the Ark of the Covenant was placed. On the top of this Ark was a SEAT. It is the seat the Christ sat on while the Temple stood. Christ's Spiritual Presence emitted from this seat! It will again. 

Inside the Ark, in the Center was the two tablets of THE TEN COMMANDMENTS! The center of all creation was the Ten Commandments (you know that awful Law that many try to tell you Christ abolished!). On the Ten Commandments are Ten Laws.

That 4th Commandment Begins with this word:

REMEMBER!

 Yes we are to remember the most spiritual of the Commandments, the Center of the world.

Remember the sabbath Day and Keep it Holy!

 

Are you keeping this day holy?


Sabbath keepers warn Sunday worshippers

Convinced that the Government is getting ready to introduce law that will make Sunday the designated day of worship, two Sabbath keepers have set about preparing persons to mount fierce resistance to this perceived plan.

Sabbath Day JesusVincent Hoo and Wilhelm Lecky, leaders of the FTB Ministries, have mounted billboards in Portmore, St Catherine; Mandeville, Manchester; and Mountain View Avenue in Kingston, telling people that "Sunday worship will be the Mark of the Beast".

"The Government of the land is going to come with a law making Sunday the compulsory day of worship, and any time that happens, that will be the Mark of the Beast. We want to warn the people not to accept that law in this land, making Sunday the only day of worship. We want to warn God's people of what is coming," Hoo told THE STAR yesterday.

Several attempts to contact Ed Bartlett, the Leader of Government Business in the House of Representatives, to find out whether the Andrew Holness-led administration has plans to introduce such legislation proved futile yesterday. Additionally, no mention was made of any such laws when the governor general gave the Throne Speech at the start of the year. In any event, Jamaica's constitution guarantees every person the right to freedom of religion and worship.

The FTB ministers, however, appear to be taking no chances. Hoo, for instance, argues that the public will soon be forced to contend with the question about whether Saturday and Sunday should be designated the day of worship. He said that Jamaicans should pay attention to their Bible, which he said clearly points to Saturday being designated as the day of rest and worship.

"We fear nothing, we fear no one and we are ready to go on our knees and testify for God. It is no joke, this is serious. Anyone who accepts the Mark of the Beast, the plague that is within this book (the Bible) is going to pour out on them," he stressed.

Lecky, a preacher for the ministry, said it is necessary for the message to be shared as Jamaicans are ignorant to Bible knowledge. He said it is their duty to help others understand the issue at hand.

"This is a warning for persons to investigate the issue, which for many would be an unpopular idea," he said.

"You warn the people not when the crisis begins, but before it does. The Mark of the Beast will be mandated by an enacted Sunday law," he said.

The FTB Ministry is said to be based on Seventh-day Adventist teachings. The ministry, which was started in 2002 by Hoo, does not have a physical home, but is said to capture the attention of about 100 persons in Jamaica with their live-streamed services.

Just who or what are the Nephilim?

By WND Staff

Mysterious 'giants' of Bible get probed in new TV series

"There were giants in the earth in those days." (Genesis 6:4)

It's one of the most perplexing and disturbing passages in the Bible.

Giants. They were also called Nephilim. They were referred to as "mighty men which were of old, men of renown." Sometimes they were called "the sons of Anak." They were called "Anakims," "Emims," "Zamzummims" and Rephaims." And people were like "grasshoppers" in their sight.

A new docu-series examination of these beings will present a rare, well-researched and sobering look at this biblical mystery.

Produced by The Inspiration Networks, a faith-based family entertainment network, "Angels & Giants, The Watchers & Nephilim" includes four hour-long episodes featuring a serious investigation into the subject, the Jerusalem Post reported.

The minds behind the project are Rudy Landa, a senior producer and director at The Inspiration Networks and company CEO David Cerullo.

Their love for all things biblical was the catalyst for their decision to commence making the film in 2019.

"The Bible describes the Nephilim in several places," Landa said. "The main commentary of the Nephilim happens in Genesis chapter six. Most people cruise right over that passage. The Nephilim were the offspring of heavenly beings who were placed in the spiritual realm to watch over the earth in those days. They were principalities in the heavenly realm."

Are the Nephilim fallen angels?

In Genesis chapter 6, before the flood of Noah, Scripture mentions the "sons of Elohim" marrying the daughters of men, with their offspring called Nephilim, which the King James Version translates as "giants."

"The docu-series brings the biblical sources, but it should be interesting for non-religious viewers," Landa said. "We seek out actual proof, the traces and clues that are out there in the world, and not just the faith-based claims. Because there is so much archaeological evidence that needs to be explored."

Landa did not wish to take a sensational treatment to a sensational subject, so he brought in guidance from author Douglas Van Dorn, who had just written a book on the topic.

"We present the evidence and we invite people to research to reach their own conclusions," Landa said. "We aren't dogmatic and don't hide anything. We bring the sources and encourage the viewer to ask questions, to continue to study and do their own research."

The journey spans the globe, examining locations in the United States, Egypt, and Peru, and most importantly, the Golan Heights in Israel.

"It makes sense to start in Israel where the story of the Nephilim began," Landa stressed. "And that is the Golan."

The apocryphal Book of Enoch is said to describe the Nephilim, and suggests the name of Mount Hermon comes from the Hebrew "charm," meaning "to be banished." It noted the Nephilim, which is often translated as "fallen ones," were kicked out of heaven and sent to earth two dwell at Mount Hermon. It's in that region of Bashan where the ancient Israelites were challenged by the infamous king Og as they were entering the Promised Land.

The Post reports: "Landa's search for the truth also brought him to Gilgal Refaim (Wheel of the Giants), an enigmatic rock formation in the Golan. From the ground, it appears as random piles of rocks. But from above it is quite impressive, revealing itself to be five concentric rings with the outer ring measuring more than 500 feet wide. At its center is a mound of loose stones over 65 feet in diameter and over 16 feet tall, covering a central chamber carved into solid rock. Archaeologists generally place the beginning of the construction as early as 3500 BCE. The purpose of Gilgal Refaim is still a mystery and the focus of scholarly debate."

"There are theories that claim that Og was buried at Gilgal Refaim," Landa said.

The film examines the possibility of the structure's center being used as an excarnation chamber where the body could decompose. The bones would later be removed and ultimately buried in a large "serpentine structure of loose stones adjacent to stone rings."

"This dual arrangement, circles of stones near a serpentine mound, appears in several places around the world where it was known to be used as a necropolis for this form of burial," Landa explained.
