The feasts of Yehovah

Lev. 23 [2] Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, concerning the feasts of Yehovah, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts.

[4] These are the feasts of Yehovah, even holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons.

[37] These are the feasts of Yehovah, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, to offer an offering made by fire unto Yehovah, a burnt offering, and a meat offering, a sacrifice, and drink offerings, every thing upon his day:

[44] And Moses declared unto the children of Israel the feasts of Yehovah.

-----------

2 Chr.2 [4] Behold, I build an house to the name of Yehovah my God, to dedicate it to him, and to burn before him sweet incense, and for the continual shewbread, and for the burnt offerings morning and evening, on the sabbaths, and on the new moons, and on the solemn feasts of Yehovah our God. This is an ordinance for ever to Israel.

-----------

Ezra 3 [5] And afterward offered the continual burnt offering, both of the new moons, and of all the set feasts of Yehovah that were consecrated, and of every one that willingly offered a freewill offering unto Yehovah.

PASSOVER HAGGADAH - SEDER SERVICE

The order of service

The word Seder means "Order", as in order of the service.

Exod.12: [25] And it shall come to pass, when ye be come to the land which Yehovah will give you, according as he hath promised, that ye shall keep this service.

[26] And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say unto you, What mean ye by this service?

-----------

HAGGADAH means "the Telling"

HAGGADAH is the name of the many versions of books that have been written which tell of the Passover story through the Seder dinner.

Many of these Passover Seders are not scriptural. We do not say the Dayanu.

We do not have eggs, shank bone or the afikoman.

We do not charge money to anyone for the Passover.

We do not go to 2 or 3 Passover services, only one on the right day with people of God

We believe Yeshua, Elijah is come, John the Baptist.

We don't make a big deal of washing hands.

We try to leave out all these traditions because they cloud the real meaning of the Passover.

Beware of "Made-up analogies".

Quoting from the Talmud is unwise and unscriptural.

THE FESTIVAL MEAL

SHULCHAN ORECH (Set table)

A little leaven, a little sin leaveneth the whole lump!

 

Passover meal

The Matzah, The Unleavened bread - humble bread, not puffed up (leaven - symbolic of sin).

The Roasted Lamb is a reminder of the first Passover sacrifice and the sacrifice of Yeshua, the Lamb of God

Bitter Herbs seems to recall the bitterness of slavery.

 

1 Cor. 5 [7] Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Messiah / Christ our Passover sacrificed for us:

 [8] Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

-----------------

Lamb, unleavened bread and bitter herbs

 Exod.12 [8] And they shall eat the flesh in (the lamb) that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.

 Num.9 [11] The fourteenth day of the second month at even they shall keep it (the roasted lamb), and eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs.

 

Searching for Leaven

Exod.12 [15] Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel.

Exod. 13 [6] Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, and in the seventh day shall be a feast to Yehovah.

[7] Unleavened bread shall be eaten seven days; and there shall no leavened bread be seen with thee, neither shall there be leaven seen with thee in all thy quarters.

----------------

What work may be done?

What are Holy convocations?

Exod.12 [16] And in the first day there shall be an holy convocation, and in the seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, save that which every man must eat, that only may be done of you.

[11] For in six days Yehovah made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore Yehovah blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.

 

Rev.1 [10] I was in the Spirit on Yehovah's Day - (The Sabbath)

Ex. 12: 15 - Matthew 16: 6

Leaven in Scripture is almost always a symbol of sin.

Putting away of Leaven is a picture of sanctification and getting sin out of our life. Yeshau said, Go and sin NO MORE!

The Hebrew word for Leaven is chametz.

Lets seek to be more like Yeshua with no sin.

 

1 Cor. 5 [6] Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?

[7] Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:

[8] Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

Time to eat and talk about the Passover

TELLING THE PASSOVER STORY

I will execute judgment against all the gods of Egypt, I am Yehovah

Exod.12 [12] For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am Yehovah.

Jer.43 [12] And I will kindle a fire in the houses of the gods of Egypt; and he shall burn them, and carry them away captives: and he shall array himself with the land of Egypt, as a shepherd putteth on his garment; and he shall go forth from thence in peace.

----------------

Reading: Exod. 1 to 14

We shall talk about the 10 plagues:

The ten plagues in Egypt

Water to Blood

Frogs

Lice

Flies

grievous murrain

Boils

Hail

Locusts

Darkness

Death of the Firstborn

------------

The ten murmurings, complains, disputings of Israel (done many times)

Num.14 [22 ] Because all those men which have seen my glory, and my miracles, which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have tempted me now these ten times, and have not hearkened to my voice;

[23 ] Surely they shall not see the land which I sware unto their fathers, neither shall any of them that provoked me see it:

Does this sound like you may have done these things below a time or two as the Israelites have done?

murmurings:

against God, many times

against Yehovah, many times

against My commandments, many times

against "the land" which Yehovah gave them ( the building God has given us to meet in )

against the manna , the bread from heaven which God gave them. ( they wanted flesh to eat )

against the wife of Moses ( the minister's wife )

against Moses, many times ( the minister Yehovah has put over you )

complained that there was no water in the wilderness

against Aaron

against the people who God put over them, many times ( against people Yehovah brings to our congregation )

PASSOVER QUESTIONS

Exod. 13

[6] Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, and in the seventh day shall be a feast to Yehovah.

[7] Unleavened bread shall be eaten seven days; and there shall no leavened bread be seen with thee, neither shall there be leaven seen with thee in all thy quarters.

[8] And thou shalt shew thy son in that day, saying, This is done because of that which Yehovah did unto me when I came forth out of Egypt.

[14] And it shall be when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying, What is this? that thou shalt say unto him, By strength of hand Yehovah brought us out from Egypt, from the house of bondage:

[15] And it came to pass, when Pharaoh would hardly let us go, that Yehovah slew all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both the firstborn of man, and the firstborn of beast: therefore I sacrifice to Yehovah all that openeth the matrix, being males; but all the firstborn of my children I redeem.

[16] And it shall be for a token upon thine hand, and for frontlets between thine eyes: for by strength of hand Yehovah brought us forth out of Egypt.

[17] And it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that God led them not through the way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for God said, Lest peradventure the people repent when they see war, and they return to Egypt:

[18] But God led the people about, through the way of the wilderness of the Red sea: and the children of Israel went up harnessed out of the land of Egypt.

 

Deut. 6

[20] And when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying, What mean the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which Yehovah our God hath commanded you?

[21] Then thou shalt say unto thy son, We were Pharaoh's bondmen in Egypt; and Yehovah brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand:

[22] And Yehovah shewed signs and wonders, great and sore, upon Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his household, before our eyes:

[23] And he brought us out from thence, that he might bring us in, to give us the land which he sware unto our fathers.

[24] And Yehovah commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear Yehovah our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day.

[25] And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before Yehovah our God, as he hath commanded us.

[26] And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say unto you, What mean ye by this service?

[27] That ye shall say, It is the sacrifice of Yehovah's passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he smote the Egyptians, and delivered our houses. And the people bowed the head and worshipped.

KIDDUSH - Sanctification: Only ONE Cup - in HIS BLOOD - the New Covenant

Matt. 26 [26] And as they were eating, Yeshua took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.

[27] And he took "the cup", and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;

[28] For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.

[29] But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom.

---------------

Mark 14: [22] And as they did eat, Yeshua took bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said, Take, eat: this is my body.

[23] And he took "the cup", and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them: and they all drank of it.

[24] And he said unto them, This is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many.

[25] Verily I say unto you, I will drink no more of the fruit of the vine, until that day that I drink it new in the kingdom of God.

[26] And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.

--------------

Luke 22 [15] And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer:

[16] For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.

[17] And he took "the cup", and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves:

[18] For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.

[19] And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.

[20] Likewise also "the cup" after supper, saying, "This cup" is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.

-------------

1 Cor. 10 [16] "The cup" of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Messiah?

-------------

1 Cor. 11 [23] For I have received of Yeshua that which also I delivered unto you, That Yeshua the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:

[24] And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.

[25] After the same manner also he took "the cup", when he had supped, saying, "This cup" is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.

[26] For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink "this cup", ye do shew Yeshua's death till he come.

[27] Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink "this cup" of Yeshua, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of Yeshua.

[28] But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of "that cup".

[29] For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning Yeshua's body.

[30] For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.

[31] For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.

[32] But when we are judged, we are chastened of Yeshua, that we should not be condemned with the world.

-------------------

Let's Pray:

Minister: For I have received of Yeshua that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Yeshua the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:

And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.

 

Minister: Take eat!

After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.

Minister: Take drink,

For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew Yeshua's death till he come.

Bless Yeshua!

Minister: Sh'ma Hear!

The Shema - Israel's watch words for all time!

Minister: Sh'ma Yisrael: Yehovah Eloheinu, Yehovah Echad. Baruch shem k'vod malchuto l'olam vaed.

[1] Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments, which the Yehovah your God commanded to teach you, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go to possess it:
[2] That thou mightest fear the Yehovah thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son's son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged.
[3] Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the Yehovah God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and honey.

[7] And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
[8] And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
[9] And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.
