יהוה (Yahweh) is the name of Elohim (Mighty One) and יהושע (Yahushua) is the name of His Son which means ‘יהוה saves’
There seems to be much confusion concerning the true day of the Messiah’s Resurrection. The majority claims He died on “Good Friday” then resurrected on “Easter Morning”.
Because of this heresy, many have adopted the belief that Sun-day is now the Christian Sabbath. Whereas, the seventh day Sabbath is Old Testament stuff strictly for the Yehuḏim (Jews) – which by the way are only one (1) tribe of Yisra’ĕl (Israel).
History shows us that it was Constantine in 321 C.E. that declared Sun-day the day of rest under a penalty of death. All this was in honor of “Sol Invictus.”
What day did יהושע Messiah rise? Was it Sun-day or could it have possibly been another day?
To find the answer to this question let us turn to the great book of Mattithyahu/Matthew 12: 39-40:
“But He answering, said to them, “A wicked and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign shall be given to it except the sign of the prophet Yonah. 40 “For as Yonah was three days and three nights in the stomach of the great fish, so shall the Son of Aḏam be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.“ (ISR Scriptures 98 Edition)
That is pretty clear!!! However, we must remember that the adversary is the author of confusion.
“The thief does not come except to steal, and to slaughter, and to destroy…:” (Yoḥanan/John 10:10)
Please do not let the adversary steal the simplicity of יהוה’s words. Let us turn to:
Yoḥanan/John 19:14, “And it was the Preparation Day of the Passover week, and about the sixth hour. And he said to the Yehuḏim, “See your Sovereign!”
This is not the weekly preparation of the seventh day Sabbath. We find this was the preparation day of a much anticipated High Sabbath or Sabbath-like day – the day before the Feast of Matzot (Unleavened Bread) would begin.
“Therefore, since it was the Preparation Day, that the bodies should not remain on the stake on the Sabbath – for that Sabbath was a high one – the Yehuḏim asked Pilate to have their legs broken, and that they be taken away.” Yoḥanan/John 19:31
Now we know this was a special high yearly Sabbath. The Messiah gave up His spirit about the ninth hour, which is about 3:00 in the afternoon.
“And when the sixth hour came, darkness came over all the land until the ninth hour. 34 And at the ninth hour יהושע cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Ěli, Ěli, lamah shebaqtani?” which is translated, “My Ěl, My Ěl, why have You forsaken Me? … 37 And יהושע cried out with a loud voice, and breathed His last.” Marqos/Mark 15: 33-34; 37
Let us now begin the seventy-two hour count. On the 4th day (Wednesday) about the ninth hour (3:00 in the afternoon), He gave up His Spirit. From the 4th day (Wednesday) to the 5th day (Thursday), the ninth hour is one day (24 hours). From the 5th day (Thursday) to the 6th day (Friday) at the ninth hour is two days (48 hours). From the 6th day (Friday) at the ninth hour to the 7th day – Shabbat (Saturday) at the ninth hour is three days (72 hours). Three FULL days and three FULL nights.
The above shows three full days. Remember יהושע told us that the ONLY sign they would get is the sign of Yonah, THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS. Scriptures also tell us, that it was about the ninth hour (3:00) when our Saviour gave up His Spirit. For the sake of argument, let us say יהושע Messiah gave up His Spirit on the 5th day (Thursday) at the ninth hour. First full night would be Thursday, second full night would be Friday and the third full night would be Saturday. First full day would be Friday, second full day would be Saturday and the third full day would be Sun-day at about the ninth hour (3:00). Unbelievably, once I point this out to some they still manage to make excuses, for the claim that He rose Sun-day morning (Easter/Ishtar Sun-day).
Then I kindly show them the following verse, Yoḥanan/John 20:1 “ And on the first day of the week Miryam from Magdala came early to the tomb, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been removed from the tomb. “
(We must remember that the true time of a day was from sunset to sunset, and so this ‘first day’ would be Saturday evening)
Miryam (Mary) waited until the weekly Sabbath had ended, while it was still dark out, and when she gets to the tomb the stone is taken away. This would be Saturday night – and certainly the FIRST day of the week!
Can you see how the adversary has managed to trick billions into thinking the Messiah rose on Sun-day Morning?
If He gave up His Spirit, at the ninth hour on Thursday (Day 5) instead of Wednesday (Day 4) then the FULL DAY would have been Sun-day, not morning, but during the day around the ninth hour, 3pm in the afternoon!!!
Scriptures reveal to us, when Miryam (Mary) gets there, Saturday night (first day of the week) when it was yet DARK, the tomb was empty! Making יהושע Messiah ‘Master of the Sabbath!’
What about Easter Sun-day? יהושע does not lie, when He said THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS He meant it.
Men lie! Going by what יהושע said then, the following chart will show when the three full days and nights would be if He gave up His Spirit at the 9th hour (3:00pm) on Friday (Day 6) afternoon.
There is NO possible way one can squeeze 72 hours from 6th day (Friday) afternoon (erroneously called – Good Friday) to 1st day (Sun-day) morning (called Easter/Ishtar in celebration of pagan rooted sun-worship of Nimrod’s wife Semiramis, known as Ishtar/Easter).
Even though many have heard the Truth, sadly they have adopted the humanism philosophy.
Blame this on harden hearts, pridefulness, stubbornness, and being lukewarm; and having itchy ears that just want to be tickled.
The bottom line is…those who follow such heresies have sadly gone in the way of Cain!
When one has grown accustom to man-made traditions which includes the commandments of men, it can be a real struggle to repent (turn back around to Him).
What about the first disciples (taught ones), didn’t they gather on the first day of the week?
Let us look at Ma’asei/Acts 20:7. According to the, ‘The Interlinear Greek-English New Testament Third Edition‘ (6) Acts 20:7: “And the one of the Sabbaths, having been gathered the disciples to break bread, Sha’ul (Paul) reasoned to them, being about to depart on the morrow continued and the discourse until midnight.“
During this time, there was only one weekly Sabbath and that was the Seventh day (Saturday). Translations that use the term ‘first day of the week’ are indeed correct.
The problem arises when the Tares twist the Scriptures. They lead many to think they gathered on Sun-day morning. Did they?
Let us see, the word ‘Sabbaths’ in this verse is in plural form, meaning more than one weekly Sabbath. This would have been Saturday night, after the sun had set, close to midnight.
They gathered on the weekly Sabbath. When the sun had set – a new day (1st day of the week) began.
Sha’ul (Paul) reasoned with them all through that 1st day evening – Saturday night, even up until midnight. They did not meet on Sun-day morning. They gathered to break bread on the Sabbath and they fellowshipped until midnight.
What about the so called – ‘Lord’s Day‘? One word can change the whole meaning of a verse or sentence. According to the, ‘Interlinear Greek-English New Testament Third Edition’, Ḥazon/Revelation 1:10, reads as follows: Ḥazon/Revelation 1:10, “I came to be in the Spirit on the Lords day.“
King James Version reads as follows: “I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day.“
‘Was‘ is past tense while ‘Came to be‘ is future tense. Meaning Yoḥanan/John’s spirit left his flesh body and he came to be, was being shown the future by being placed in the great day of יהוה! A day still yet to come.
The Day of יהוה is speaking of the day of His return and the ushering in of His reign – the 7th day (7th Millennium)
Remember that Kěpha (peter) reminds us to make sure that we do not let one thing be hidden from us – and that is that with יהוה one day is like a thousand years and a thousand years like one day!!!
Why is this important for us?
Because it explains to us the ‘mystery’ of the ages so to speak and we can from the Creation Week account in Berěshith/Genesis clearly see His full plan of redemption which will culminate in Him completing His work on the 7th day (7th Millennium) when he returns – this 7th Millennium (7th day) – is His day – the Day of יהוה; and this is what Yoḥanan was shown – he was shown the events that would take place in the 7th Millennium and so this was the DAY that he came to be in the spirit – not the 1st day of the week!!
Let us now look at Iḇ’rim/Hebrews 4:9, “ So there remains a Sabbath-keeping for the people of Elohim.“ Here is the same verse in the original Greek, ‘ara apoleipetai sabbatismoV tw law tou qeou.‘
Other translations use the English word ‘rest’ instead of ‘Sabbath-keeping’
There is a big difference in the word ‘rest‘ and ‘sabbatismos‘. The latter explains to us in more detail what this rest actually is. Strong’s #4520 Sabbatismos is used in this verse and means: a Sabbath keeping/observance. Iḇ’rim/Hebrews 4:9 is actually telling us that there remains therefore a Sabbath keeping to the people of Elohim!
Now ponder for a moment, how many have made claims that the Sabbath has been done away with?
Vast amounts have made such claims. Oh my beloved friend, this is a very dangerous heresy!
Satan, the adversary hates the Fourth Commandment. He has tried every means possible to destroy it!
Why would he do that? Because the Fourth Commandment tells us whom we serve! Either we serve the one who made the heavens, earth, and everything they hold (יהוה) and have received His seal or we serve the counterfeit, with his sabbath, holidays, name and have received his mark!
Easter – what it really is – and it isn’t Passover!!!
According to pagan sun god religions, Semiramis, the wife of Nimrod, the sun god, and mother of Tammuz, the reborn sun god, upon her death was sent back by the sun god Nimrod as the large-breasted fertility goddess Easter. She was sent back the first SUN-day after the Vernal Equinox (Easter Sunday) in a large egg that landed in the Euphrates River. The egg then opened and to show her divinity she changed a bird into an egg-laying rabbit (Easter bunny).
Easter’s priests, in honor of her fertility, would impregnate young virgins upon her altar and then sacrifice these three-month-old infants upon the same altar the following year as the sun rises on SUN-day morning (Easter Sunrise Service). They would then take eggs (fertility) and dip them in the red blood of these sacrificed infants (Easter eggs). These pagans would then roast the boar that killed Tammuz and eat Ham on Easter Sunday.
The Dictionary of Mythology, Folklore, and Symbols, Part 1, page 487 tells us more about this Spring Festival (often called Easter).
‘‘It incorporates some of the ancient Spring Equinox ceremonies of sun worship in which there were phallic rites and spring fires, and in which the deity or offering to the deity was eaten…The festival is symbolized by an ascension Lily…a chick breaking its shell, the colors white and green, the egg, spring flowers, and the Rabbit. The name is related to Astarte, Ashtoreth, Eostre and Ishtar, goddess who visited and rose from the underworld. Easter yields ‘Enduring Eos’… ‘Enduring Dawn’ [Easter Sunrise Service].’
Easter is a pagan feast and has nothing to do with the death and resurrection of Messiah. Easter is the pagan celebration of Semiramis (Easter) – the pagan fertility goddess who supposedly was reincarnated and came back in a giant egg, landing in the Euphrates river and popping out as a bare breasted fertility goddess and turned a bird into an egg laying rabbit. Each year on the spring equinox they would worship Easter and impregnate virgins on the altar and a year later those 3 month old babies that were conceived the previous year would be sacrificed on the altar and they would dip eggs in the blood of the infants – this is sick I know yet some churches do not even know where Easter egg practice comes from!!!
Good Friday has nothing to do with the death of Messiah – it is the worship of Dagon the fish god – half man half fish (hence the fish hat on the pope – Dagon worship – and that is why the Catholics eat fish of Fridays!!!)
One other very important detail of ‘keeping’ the Feasts of our Creator and Saviour is the clear instruction to not eat ‘leavened bread’ for 7 days during the Feast of Unleavened Bread, yet what does Christianity promote as something to be eaten at this time of year??? Hot-cross buns – they contain yeast and are not permissible for a true follower of Messiah!!!
Partaking in wicked Easter celebrations and false sun-rise services on man-made worship days is a partaking in the table of demons and you cannot eat of the Master’s table and eat of the table of demons!!!
Our Master יהושע Messiah died and was in the heart of the earth for 3 DAYS AND 3 NIGHTS and in no way died and rose according to the falsified teachings of the church that has syncretized their worship with pagan rooted rituals of sun-worship!!!
Choose this day who you will follow and serve!!!
