The Passover Lamb

the passover lamb

“And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say to you, What do you mean by this service? That you shall say, It is the sacrifice of the LORD’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 paid homage to the LORD.”

Exodus 12:26-27

God commanded Moses to speak to Israel concerning the Passover. The night before the exodus of Israel, God executed judgement throughout the oppressive land of Egypt (Exodus 12:1-12). His instructions to Israel were for each household to take a lamb and eat the meat in haste. Let us delve into the meaning of this particular Law of the Passover in order that we might keep it in its exact interpretation.

A Forced Sabbath

The World has suddenly come to a screeching halt. The population is taking a ‘forced sabbath’, or rest, due to Coronavirus containment efforts. As of March 24th, 2020, a third of the World’s population, or three Billion people, are under virus related ‘shelter-in-place’ limits. Citizens around the world have been forced to take a step back from the ‘go-go-go’ mentality. The new directive is to hunker-down at home. Welcome to the forced sabbath.

It’s What’s for Lent!

‘The season of Lent is upon us… a time of abstinence, fasting and penance.’ And alms giving… Or is it?

It’s what’s for Lent – What’s on your plate?

‘When you fast, don’t be as the hypocrites’. And ‘When you do your alms, don’t sound a trumpet as the hypocrites do… that they may have the glory of men…’ and…

‘Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees/Priests which is hypocrisy.’

Jesus (Matt 6:1-2, 16; Luke 12:1)

Reconnecting the Roots of America – Part 2

‘God make you as Ephraim and as Manasseh’

There are many who acknowledge that the biblical Ephraim and Manasseh, sons of Joseph, son of Jacob/Israel, are represented by Great Britain and America. They, like Joseph, have it backwards, but Jacob knew exactly what he was doing.

Reconnecting the Roots of America, Part 1

Finding our Ancestral Roots has become a pastime and an important aspect of life for many lately with the availability of DNA tests and programs to help people reconnect with the roots of their Family Tree. But most can only go back a few generations and a few hundred years at best from their own with which to connect. But what if you could go back millennia? Back to the beginning? Back to the roots!

Ancient Roots of Worship

Looking back at the ways of ancient Egypt, Babylon and Assyria, we find many of those ways still being followed by modern-day people to this day. They’re not aware of their roots. But these practices can provide important clues for those who are searching and want to know their own roots.

In that Day the Light of the Moon will shine

And in that day the deaf shall hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity and out of darkness.

Isaiah 29:18

The Light of the Moon

The Light of the Moon shall be as the light of the Sun, and the Light of the Sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the Lord binds up the breach of His people and heals the stroke of their wound… And you shall have a song in the night… And the LORD shall cause His glorious Word to be heard.

Isaiah 30:26-30
December 26, 2019 Annular Solar Eclipse – “The Ring of Fire”

That’s why God made the Moon Medley

Signs of the End Times

“And God made two great Lights, the Greater Light to rule the day, and the Lesser Light to rule the night…”

Genesis 1:16-17

“Nation shall rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom: and great earthquakes in diverse places, and famines and pestilences and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven…”

Luke 21:7-11

The last Full Moon of the decade was on December 12, 2019. The last New Moon of the decade is on December 26, 2019. The New Moon is hidden from the earth except in the case of an eclipse of the Sun. That’s when the moon can be seen as a dark orb in the throne of the sun lit up by its corona, the “ring of fire”. This New Moon will be visible as it will eclipse the sun on December 26, 2019 at 5:13 UTC. The annular eclipse looks a wedding ring.

MESSIAH
by
G. F. HANDEL

Messiah – Part 1
Messiah – Part 2

(1) Overture

(2) Isa 40:1-3 “Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God. Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare [appointed time] is accomplished, that her iniquity pardoned: The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness: Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the dessert a highway for our God.

(3) Isa 40:4 “Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill made low: the crooked shall be made straight, rough places plain:”

A Special Invitation to the Messiah

Are you ready for the Messiah to come? On Tuesday, December 24th, the Firmament will present for your enjoyment Handel’s Messiah as a unique blend of the Classical, Young and Soulful Messiah.

The lyrics will be provided here along with a PDF you can call up or print out to follow and sing along with us. You will find that the entire score is as a “string of pearls” so to speak, from the King James Version of the Bible.

It opens with Isaiah 40: “Comfort ye, comfort ye my people…” Let them know the appointed time has come and their iniquity is pardoned. Jesus said after he had gone to the Father, he would send the Comforter who would come in his name and remind you of all the things he has said.

So then if you pay close attention, you will realize there are two ‘Great Lights’ spoken of in this compilation. There are indeed two Messiahs spoken of.
