PASSOVER

April 6, 2023

26 When your children say to you, ‘What does this service mean to you?’ 27 you shall say, ‘It is the sacrifice of the Lord’s [YHWH’s] Passover, for He passed over the houses of the Israelites in Egypt when He struck the Egyptians, but spared our houses.’” And the people bowed [their heads] low and worshiped [God].” (Exodus 12:26-27, Amplified (AMP) Bible)

Passover begins at sunset of April 5, 2023 which starts Nisan 14th on the Hebrew calendar. At this time is when we sit down to the traditional Passover Seder meal.

Passover ends at sunset on April 6, 2023. This takes us into Nisan 15th which is the first day of Unleavened Bread. This is a High Holy Day.

6 The Feast of Unleavened Bread to the Lord is on the fifteenth day of the same month; for seven days you shall eat unleavened bread. 7 On the first day you shall have a holy convocation (calling together); you shall not do any laborious work [on that day]. 8 But you shall present an offering by fire to the Lord for seven days; on the seventh day there shall be a holy convocation; you shall not do any laborious work [on that day].” (Leviticus 23:6-8, Amplified (AMP) Bible)

During Passover week, we also observe Yahweh’s Feast of First Fruits. This year, it is on Sunday, April 9, 2023.

The Feast of First Fruits

9 Then the LORD [YHWH] spoke to Moses, saying, 10 Speak to the children of Israel and say to them, ‘When you enter the land which I am giving you and reap its harvest, you shall bring the sheaf [i.e., a tied bundle of stalks of freshly harvested grain.] of the first fruits of your harvest to the priest. 11 He shall wave the sheaf before the LORD [YHWH] so that you may be accepted; the priest shall wave it on the day after the Sabbath. 12 Now on the day when you wave the sheaf you shall offer a male lamb one year old without blemish as a burnt offering to the LORD [YHWH]. 13 Its grain offering shall be two-tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with [olive] oil, an offering by fire to the LORD [YHWH] for a sweet and soothing aroma, with its drink offering [to be poured out], a fourth of a hin [i.e., approx. one gal.] of wine. 14 You shall not eat any bread or roasted grain or new growth, until this same day when you bring in the offering to your God; it is a permanent statute throughout your generations wherever you may be.” (Leviticus 23:9-14, Amplified (AMP) Bible)

The Feast of Weeks

15 ‘You shall count from the day after the Sabbath, from the day when you brought in the sheaf (tied bundle of grain) of the wave offering; there shall be seven complete Sabbaths (seven full weeks). 16 You shall count fifty [This is the origin of the name “Pentecost,” Greek for “fiftieth.”] days to the day after the seventh Sabbath; then you shall present a new grain offering to the Lord. 17 You shall bring in from your places two loaves of bread as a wave offering, made from two-tenths of an ephah of fine flour; they shall be baked with leaven as first fruits to the Lord. 18 And you shall offer with the bread seven unblemished lambs, one year old, and one young bull and two rams. They are to be a burnt offering to the Lord, with their grain offering and their drink offerings. It is an offering by fire, a sweet and soothing aroma to the Lord. 19 And you shall sacrifice one male goat as a sin offering and two male lambs, one year old as a sacrifice of peace offerings. 20 The priest shall wave them before the Lord as a wave offering, together with the bread of the first fruits and the two lambs. They are to be holy to the Lord for the priest. 21 On this same day you shall make a proclamation, you are to have a holy convocation (calling together); you shall not do any laborious work [on that day]. It is to be a permanent statute throughout your generations wherever you may be.

22 ‘When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not reap to the edges of your field, nor gather the gleaning of your harvest; you are to leave them for the poor and for the stranger. I am the Lord your God.’

The Biblical Day

The biblical day goes from evening to evening, from sundown to sundown, which is roughly 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

5 And God called the light day, and the darkness He called night. And there was evening [The Hebrew word translated “evening” indicates dusk or sunset.] and there was morning [The Hebrew word translated “morning” indicates the time when it is getting light (dawn).], one day.

8 God called the expanse [of sky] heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, a second day.

13 And there was evening and there was morning, a third day.

19 And there was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.

23 And there was evening and there was morning, a fifth day.

31 God saw everything that He had made, and behold, it was very good and He validated it completely. And there was evening and there was morning, a sixth day.

(Genesis 1:5, 8, 13, 19, 23, 31)

The Biblical day (6:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.) is divided into two 12-hour periods. The evening runs from 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. The morning runs from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Each 12-hour period is divided into two smaller portions. From 6:00 a.m. to noon is the morning part of the Biblical day. From noon to 6:00 p.m. is the evening part of the Biblical day. The phrase, “between the evening” from Exodus 12:6 refers to the period of the day that goes from noon to 6:00 p.m., which is exactly 3:00 p.m. This would be the ninth hour of the day, counting from 6:00 a.m.

Understanding the Hebrew term “Ba Erev” or “Ba Ereb” – Evening

A Biblical day is from evening (Hebrew עֶרֶב ba ereb or ba erev, Strong’s #H6153 – dusk, evening, night, grow dusk at sundown, darkened) to evening, which is roughly 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. the next day (See Genesis 1:5, 8, 13, 19 and 31 above.)

THE PASSOVER 2023: WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW (AND AVOID)

Shalom family, Pesach (Passover) 2023 is almost upon us, and there’s something that needs to be voiced. It seems that many of you have questions about the meal, and the service; rightly so. The scriptures tell us to eat three things: lamb, unleavened bread and bitter herbs, that’s it. Yet, the predominant rendition of the Passover meal, is the seder plate, and service. Most are unaware, that this practice stems from pagan origins, as we will prove momentarily. Is this something we should be intermingling with this holy day that represents Messiah?

Let’s begin with the Word. Exodus 12 explains the contents of the Passover meal:

And they shall eat the flesh in that night (lamb), roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it

Exodus 12:8

This is the meal. Why then are many people eating a Passover meal consisting of eggs, charoset (mixture of fruit, nuts, and wine), and other foods not given to us in scripture?

Furthermore, why are the masses not eating the lamb? Don’t you think that’s a bit symbolic, considering Messiah is the lamb, and this feast is all about him? We’ll come back to that later. The truth is, YHWH hates when people celebrate him in man-made ways.

Messiah often rebuked the religious leaders for their man-made teachings

7 You hypocrites, well did Isaiah prophesy of you, saying, 8 These people draw close to me with their mouth, and honor me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. 9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men

Matthew 15:7-9

Do any of you want to worship him in vain?

The seder meal is a man-made tradition that you won’t find it anywhere in the Word. Though millions will be celebrating the Passover meal in the weeks to come, how many will be doing it His way? After all, this is all about him isn’t it?

10 Proofs Passover Is a Memorial, Not a High Day

Throughout history a debate has raged concerning the proper timing of Yahweh’s Passover. Many observe the Passover on the 14th of the first month (Abib) and the Feast of Unleavened Bread on the 15th. Others believe that both the Passover and the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread are on the 14th. Still others observe the Passover and first day of the Feast on the 15th of Abib. Why so much confusion? It need not be.

This study will harmonize both Old and New Testaments to show that the two observances are clearly separate and distinct.

Part of the error is historical. After Judah and Benjamin went into Babylonian exile by the hand of Nebuchadnezzar, these two Israelite tribes combined what is known in the Bible as the Passover and the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

No one knows exactly when these two observances were combined, but what is known is that it happened during the Exile in Babylon. Israelites picked up a number of errors while under Babylonian influence, and the joining of Passover with the Feast was one of them. Because of this error some believe Passover is also the first high day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

The Encyclopaedia Judaica confirms the mistake committed by these Jews: “The feast of Passover consists of two parts: The Passover ceremony and the Feast of Unleavened Bread. Originally, both parts existed separately; but at the beginning of the [Babylonian] exile they were combined,” Vol. 13,  p. 169.

The book, The Torah, by W. Gunther Plaunt, corroborates, saying, “The Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread rituals were originally two separate observances which were combined sometime between the events of the Exodus and the redaction of the text” (p. 445).

Clearly, the Scriptures proclaim that the 14th of Abib marks the Passover memorial, while the 15th of Abib starts the Feast of Unleavened Bread. But two particular deviations from this truth exist. One is that the Passover is the first high Sabbath of the Feast of Unleavened Bread and falls on the 14th of Abib. The second is also that the Passover is the first high day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, but occurs on the 15th of Abib.

One central fact plainly obvious in Yahweh’s Word is that the Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread are separate observances. Consider the following passages (from the NIV):

“[Yahweh’s] Passover begins at twilight on the fourteenth day of the first month. On the fifteenth day of that month [Yahweh’s] Feast of Unleavened Bread begins; for seven days you must eat bread made without yeast” (Lev. 23:5-6).

And in the fourteenth day of the first month is the Passover of [Yahweh]. And in the fifteenth day of this month is the feast: seven days shall unleavened bread be eaten” (Num. 28:16-17). Other translations are just as plain, including the KJV.

Clearly, the Passover is on the 14th of Abib, while the Feast of Unleavened Bread begins on the 15th of Abib and advances through the 21st day of Abib, making a seven-day Feast.

What If It Wasn’t A Rooster?

What if I told you that it is possible that Yeshua didn’t really warn Peter that the crowing of a rooster would reveal to him his downfall? It’s amazing what linguistic research can turn up. One of the many significant things about the re-establishment of the nation of Israel is the resurrection of the Hebrew language. Since it has been found that at least the book of Matthew was originally written in Hebrew, once put back into its original Hebrew language and cultural context, it has brought clarity and correction to many previously mysterious or misinterpreted words or passages.

Clearly some of the errors in our translations are due to unfamiliarity with what the words would have meant to those hearing them. But sometimes the translations appear to be the direct result attempting to discredit the overall “Jewishness” in the New Covenant (Testament) in order to support their particular theology that the Gentile “church” had “replaced” Israel. (See my article, “Church Isn’t In the Bible”) Take also the use of the term “the Jews” which sounds like it means every Jew, when in fact it was “the Judeans” or more specifically, the Judean leaders. Cleopas, evidently an eye witness to the whole scenario, talking to and about what happened to Yeshua while walking on the road to Emmaus reported “…how the chief priests and our rulers delivered Him to the sentence of death, and crucified Him.” (Luke 24:20, emphasis added). Reading the New Testament in English gives the idea that every Jew in Israel was shouting “Crucify Him!” Not likely that would come from the blind who now could see or the lame who could now walk, nor those whose son or daughter was raised from the dead. Certainly not Mary, Martha and Lazarus and certainly not his own family.

One of the many significant things about the re-establishment of the nation of Israel is the resurrection of the Hebrew language.

Other mistranslations appear to be caused by ignorance of the Hebrew idioms or expressions. An example might possibly be found in Yeshua’s prediction of Peter’s denial of Him on the night of the Last Supper (Note: Denial of knowing Yeshua is not equal to demanding His crucifixion. Peter denied Him out of fear, but he wouldn’t have called for His murder.) Here’s the dialog. “And the Lord said, ‘Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren’. But he said to Him, ‘Lord, I am ready to go with You, both to prison and to death’. Then He said, ‘I tell you, Peter, the rooster (‘cock’ in KJV) will not crow this day before you will deny three times that you know Me”. (Luke 22:31-34)

As we know, later that same night, after Yeshua had been taken by the guards, Peter did indeed deny knowing the Lord: “And a certain servant girl, seeing him as he sat by the fire, looked intently at him and said, ‘This man was also with Him’. But he denied Him, saying, ‘Woman, I do not know Him’. And after a little while another saw him and said, ‘You also are of them’. But Peter said, ‘Man, I am not!’ Then after about an hour had passed, another confidently affirmed saying, ‘Surely this fellow also was with Him, for he is a Galilean’. But Peter said, ‘Man, I do not know what you are saying!’ And immediately, while he was still speaking, the rooster (cock) crowed. And the Lord turned and looked at Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how He had said to him, ‘Before the rooster (cock) crows, you will deny Me three times. Then Peter went out and wept bitterly.” (Luke 22:56-62)

The Messiah: Prophecy Fulfilled

This movie dramatically presents the true meaning of the Passover/Pesach (Seder) dinner practiced by many around the world. The story takes place in Israel on the FIRST Passover following Yeshua’s death, burial and resurrection. The Gospel is clearly revealed. This drama shows how one Rabbi Yehudah (Nick Mancuso) becomes a true follower of Yeshua ha Mashiach (Jesus the Messiah). After the resurrection, being filled with the Holy Spirit, Rabbi Yehudah zealously embarkrs on a journey to share the Good News with his people. He arrives in his hometown, precisely one year after the crucifixion, burial and resurrection of the Messiah. Now, his greatest challenge is to convince his own family (father, mother, brothers and sisters) that the long awaited Messiah has finally come. Through the Feast of Passover (the Seder dinner), spoken of in the Torah by Moses, the Rabbi powerfully presents its prophetic nature and fulfillment in Yeshua of Nazareth.

Revealing Greater Revelations about the Passover Lamb!

eParable of the Vinyardby Richard Aaron Honorof
Feed My Sheep Jerusalem

When God first announced through His prophet Jeremiah in Jeremiah 31:31-34 that He would be making a New Covenant with the House of Israel and the House of Judah, which would be very different from their existing Mosaic Covenant, and which would also change from the existing Aaronic priesthood to a new priesthood. God did this out of His great Love and Mercy for all the people of Israel, and also for all the peoples of the earth.

Because the Aaronic priests had broken God’s Covenant many times, God had announced that He would make a New Covenant where the Torah and the Tanakh being placed inside the heart of each new believer in this New Covenant. And also, that God would place His own Holy Spirit inside each believer in this New Covenant, so that it would be so a lot easier for everyone to keep and obey this New and Everlasting Covenant with the God of Israel.

But in order for the Holy Spirit to be placed on the inside, in the heart of each new believer, this New Covenant would have to be ratified with blood, not with the blood of sheep or goats, but this New Covenant would have to be ratified with the special blood of a special lamb, the Lamb of God! The perfect sinless Blood of Israel’s Messiah, Yeshua, who as both the Son of Man and also the Son of God would be born from the two families of the virgin Miriam, Yeshua’s mother. He would then live a perfect sinless life and then die in our place for all of our sins, as the Lamb of God, the Passover Lamb, so that each one of us would be able to have Eternal Life with Yeshua and with His Father, now also our Abba Father, the Almighty God!

After God announced that He would make a New Covenant and the first major change that God did in forming this New Covenant was in Ezekiel 44:11-14, where God said to all the Aaronic priests, expect to only one family, “Goodbye!” To never again come into God’s presence in the Temple, to never again offer any animal blood sacrifices to God …

Ezekiel 44:10-14 “10 And the Levites who went far from Me, when Israel went astray, who strayed away from Me after their idols, they shall bear their iniquity. 11 Yet they shall be ministers in My Sanctuary, as gatekeepers of the house and ministers of the House; they shall slay the burnt offering and the sacrifice for the people, and they shall stand before them to minister to them. 12 Because they ministered to them before their idols and caused the house of Israel to fall into iniquity, therefore I have raised My hand in an oath against them,” says the Lord GOD, “that they shall bear their iniquity. 13 And they shall not come near Me to minister to Me as priest, nor come near any of My holy things, nor into the Most Holy Place; but they shall bear their shame and their abominations which they have committed. 14 Nevertheless I will make them keep charge of the Temple, for all its work, and for all that has to be done in it.

Only this one family of all the Aaronic priest families would ever be allowed to come and minister in God’s Presence, and to allowed do any animal blood sacrifices which God would honor, and that was only the sons from the Zadokite high priest family.

Ezekiel 44:15-16 “15 But the priests, the Levites, the sons of Zadok, who kept charge of My sanctuary when the children of Israel went astray from Me, they shall come near Me to minister to Me; and they shall stand before Me to offer to Me the fat and the blood,” says the Lord GOD. 16 They shall enter My Sanctuary, and they shall come near My table to minister to Me, and they shall keep My charge.

But long before God had made that change in the Aaronic priesthood, God had announced to Israel about the coming Messiah, telling Israel that their Messiah would be born on earth through the virgin, in Isaiah 7:13, 14. That the Messiah would be born from the family of king David, of the tribe of Judah …

Isaiah 7:13-14 “13 Then he said, “Hear now, O house of David! Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will you weary my God also? 14 Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanu El (God with us)!

And God had also announced to Israel that this promised Messiah would also be called, the Branch, Tzemach in Hebrew! And then God announced in two different Scriptures that Tzemach would really be the God of Israel coming to earth through king David’s family.

Jeremiah 23:5-6 “5 Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, That I will raise to David a Branch (Tzemach) of Righteousness; A King shall reign and prosper, and execute judgment and righteousness in the earth. 6 In His days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell safely. Now this is His name by which He will be called, The LORD our Righteousness!

Then just after God had made that announcement to Israel, God told Israel more about this Mystery of the Messiah in Jeremiah 33 versus 14 through 26, that the Messiah, the Branch would be born to earth through the two families of the virgin, both king David’s family and also the family of the Zadokite high priests.

And this promised Messiah, though He would also be from the Zadokite high priest family of Aaron through His virgin mother mother’s family, still He would never be an Aaronic priest! Why? Simply because being born through the virgin, He would have no biological earthly father, the requirement for being an Aaronic priest.

Yeshua, our Messiah, is always from the two families of His virgin mother.

Jeremiah 33:14-26 “14 Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, that I will perform that good thing which I have promised to the house of Israel and to the house of Judah. 15 In those days and at that time I will cause to grow up to David a Branch (Tzemach) of Righteousness. He shall execute Judgment and righteousness in the earth. 16 In those days Judah will be saved, and Jerusalem will dwell safely. And this is the name by which He will be called in her, The LORD our Righteousness! 17 For thus says the LORD, David shall never lack a Man to sit on the throne of the House of Israel; 18 nor shall the priests, the Levites, lack a Man before Me to offer burnt offerings, to kindle grain offerings, and to sacrifice [‘zebach’, Strong’s # 2077, a slaughter, animal blood sacrifice (of the Lamb of God!)] continually (Hebrew word is ‘kol ha yamin’, ‘for all days’.). 19 And the Word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, saying, 20 Thus says the LORD, If you can break My covenant with the day and My covenant with the night, so that there will not be day and night in their season, 21 then My covenant may also be broken with David My servant, so that he shall not have a son to reign on his throne, and with the Levites, the priests, My ministers. 22 As the host of heaven cannot be numbered, nor the sand of the sea measured, so will I multiply the descendants of David My servant and the Levites who minister to Me. 23 Moreover the Word of the LORD came to Jeremiah, saying, 24 Have you not considered what these people have spoken, saying, The two families which the LORD has chosen, He has also cast them off’? Thus they have despised My people, as if they should no more be a nation before them. 25 Thus says the LORD: If My covenant is not with day and night, and if I have not appointed the ordinances of heaven and earth, 26 then I will cast away the descendants of Jacob and David My servant, so that I will not take any of his descendants to be rulers over the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

The whole passage of Jeremiah 33:14-26 is primarily a future prophesy about the coming Messiah, referring to Yeshua’s two divine titles, as a Branch of Righteousness and the LORD our Righteousness. 1) And very importantly about the two families of the virgin and 2) the Man who would be coming to earth from king David’s family and also from high priest Aaron’s family.

Jeremiah 33:14-17 This is basically pretty much a repeat of Jeremiah 23:5, 6. It is again about the two divine titles of Yeshua, a Branch of Righteousness and the LORD our Righteousness, and a certain Man (Yeshua) who will be coming from David’s family, the One who will reign as King over the house of David and the house of Israel forever.

This Man is definitely Yeshua, who would be born from virgin Miriam, here seen coming through her father’s family.

In Jeremiah 33:18, at first it seems that this sentence is talking about the Aaronic priests. But it is not, but only about a Man who is from the family of Aaron and not priest. The qualifying words, ‘a Man’ before Me, relate to one specific Man who is before God, from one Aaronic priest family, the family of the sons of Zadok; the only family of Aaron which was allowed to come before God to offer a blood sacrifice. The Man is Yeshua, as Melchi Zedek, High Priest of Heaven, who from the Zadokite high priest family, does the zebach (Strong # 2077, slaughter, animal blood sacrifice) the Blood Sacrifice done of the Lamb of God, ‘kol ha yamim,’ ‘for all days!’ The Eternal Blood Sacrifice! This Man is ‘before Me,’ (Hebrew, lifanay), which means that He stands before God!

Isaiah 53:7, a lamb to the slaughter; Revelation 5:6, a Lamb slain; Revelation 13:8, the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world!

All the other Aaronic priest families were commanded by God to leave, to never again come into God’s presence in the Temple, and to never again do any animal blood sacrifices before God. Read Ezekiel 44:11-14 These other Aaronic priests were now only be allowed by God to minister to the people.

This Zadokite high priest family is mentioned in six places in the book of Ezekiel: Ezekiel 40:46; Ezekiel 42:13; Ezekiel 43:18, 19; Ezekiel 44:15, 16; Ezekiel 45:4; and Ezekiel 48:10, 11.

We know in Jeremiah 33:17, the Man from David who reigns as King is Yeshua. So, then the Man mentioned in verse 18 is also really only about one specific Son from Zadok, Yeshua, who is always before God, (אִישׁ מִלְּפָנָי), and the One who does the Sacrifice ‘for all days’ (זֶּבַח כָּל-הַיָּמִים), the Eternal Blood Sacrifice!

This Man can only be Yeshua, seen here coming from the Zadokite high priest family, from Miriam’s mother’s family.

If one could superimpose Yeshua over these two Jeremiah 33:17 and 18 verses, we can see that Yeshua perfectly fits these verses. If Yeshua is the Man being talked about in verse 17, then Yeshua must also be the Man of verse 18, who was prophesied to be also coming from the Zadok high priest family. He, as the High Priest of Heaven, Melchi Zedek, coming from the two families, does the Eternal Blood Sacrifice! Read Psalm 110:1, 4 and Ezekiel 44:15, 16.

Remember that angel Gabriel told Miriam that her Son Yeshua would Reign on the Throne of His father David, and would Reign over the house of Israel forever. And indirectly that Yeshua would also be from the same family of Aaron (Luke 1:36, 5) as Miriam’s (close) relatives, Elisheva and Zechariah, whom God had said in Luke 1:6, were both righteous (what Zadok means) before God!

These were the qualifying words showing that both her relatives were from this Zadokite high priest family, which was Yeshua’s own blood kin family through His mother, virgin Miriam.

Yeshua’s mother being a virgin, meant that her Son Yeshua could never be an Aaronic priest, since He had no earthly father. Also, He could only be from one tribe, the tribe of Miriam’s father, which was the tribe of Judah. Yeshua was therefore never from the tribe of Miriam’s mother, Levi. But still not taught, our Lord Yeshua is always from the two families of His virgin mother!

This whole passage in Jeremiah 33:14 through 26, is a future prophetic Messianic passage, with Yeshua’s two divine titles as the Branch (Tzemach) of Righteousness and the LORD our Righteousness! “The days are coming…”, this is future!

Also, this whole passage is about the two families of the Messiah, king David’s family and also the Aaronic priest family, which God had specifically repeated three different times in verses 17 – 24, to make sure that nobody would miss this key point of verse 33:24.

Jeremiah 33:24, is about the two families which God had chosen, David’s family and Aaron’s family.

Chosen for what? Chosen, related to the coming Messiah, these two divine titles of Yeshua, as the Branch of Righteousness, and the LORD our Righteousness.

That these two families had been specially chosen by Father God for His Son Yeshua to come to earth through the virgin!

We know this from Luke 1:5, 6, and Luke 1:29-36, that Yeshua is from these two families, David’s and high priest Zadok’s family of Aaron. This is what the Jeremiah 33:24 is really telling us.

There is another major mystery which has also been overlooked … In 70 A.D., at the destruction of the Jerusalem’s 2nd Temple, all the genealogy records of the Aaronic priests were destroyed when the Jerusalem Temple was destroyed.

Therefore, no records exist today of who is from the Zadokite’s high priest family of Aaron.

Therefore, this whole Jeremiah 33:14-26 Scripture passage can only be about Yeshua, and cannot be the Aaronic priests, for only Yeshua’s Blood Sacrifice fits perfectly this Jeremiah 33:18 verse.

Yeshua has to be the Man being referred to in verse 33:18, the One who does the Blood Sacrifice “for all days!”

All that means that only Yeshua is the fulfillment of this whole prophetic Messianic passage, from Jeremiah 33:14 through 33:26.

In Jeremiah 33:18, Yeshua is the Man from the Zadokite family of Aaron who does this Eternal Blood Sacrifice!

This Truth about Yeshua’s Blood Sacrifice is not taught today!

God had said originally to all the Aaronic priests the following …

Numbers 18:20 “Then the LORD said to (high priest) Aaron, … ‘I am your portion and your inheritance’ …

Then God later repeated this Promise in Ezekiel 44:28 to the sons of the Zadokite high priests, “I am their inheritanceI am their possession!

Yeshua wants to be the Eternal Salvation for all the Aaronic priest!

Except for only the sons of Zadok, God had told all Aaronic priests to never again come into God’s Presence in the Jerusalem Temple. (Ezekiel 44:11-14)

In Yeshua’s 1000-year Millennial Kingdom reign we find only the sons of Zadok serving God as the Aaronic priests in God’s Sanctuary. This is found in two Scripture locations in the book of Ezekiel, Ezekiel 45:4 and Ezekiel 48:10, 11.

Yeshua, the Messiah of Israel, with His Eternal Blood Sacrifice has opened wide the door of Salvation, not only for all the Aaronic priest families to now be Saved and have their Eternal Inheritance and their Eternal possessions in their Messiah Yeshua, and also in Yeshua’s Father, the Almighty God of Israel. But Yeshua has also opened wide this door of Salvation for all the people of Israel, and for all the peoples of the earth.

In Jeremiah 33:18, when Yeshua, as Melchi Zedek, My King of Righteousness, the Great High Priest of Heaven, born as the Son of Man, coming from the two families of His mother, the virgin Miriam, did the Eternal Blood Sacrifice of Himself, this Blood that was shed was truly a slaughter, the blood sacrifice of an animal, but not just of any animal, but the slaughter of the Lamb of God.

Revelation 13:8 The Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

Isaiah 53:7 The Lamb led to the slaughter.

Revelation 5:6 a Lamb stood as though it had been slain.

And how can we forget the Lamb that was prophesied in Genesis 22:7, 8, when Abraham was asked by God to offer up his son Isaac on Mount Moriah, and then Isaac had asked his father Abraham, “Where is the lamb for the burnt offering?” And Abraham had responded, “God will provide Himself as the Lamb for the burnt offering (done in Jeremiah 33:18)!

This Eternal Blood Sacrifice in Jeremiah 33:18, is actually the prophetic picture prophesied in Scripture of the Eternal Blood Sacrifice done by the Son of God, the Priest of God Most High, Melchi Zedek, (My King of Righteousness), the Man who is always standing before God in Heaven. He who as a Son was also born from the Zadokite high priest family of Aaron, and as the Son of Man, would offer up Himself and His own sinless Blood offering, to ratify God’s New and Eternal Covenant with the House of Israel and the House of Judah, and also with all the peoples of the earth!

Yeshua’s Eternal Blood Sacrifice was also prophesied in Isaiah 52:11-13 and Isaiah 53:4, 5, 11.

Isaiah 52:13-15 “13 Behold, My Servant shall deal prudently; He shall be exalted and extolled and be very high. 14 Just as many were astonished at you, so His visage was marred more than any man, and His form more than the sons of men; 15 So shall He sprinkle many nations. Kings shall shut their mouths at Him; for what had not been told them they shall see …

Isaiah 53:4-5, 11 “4 Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. 5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed. 11 He shall see the labor of His soul, and be satisfied. By His knowledge My Righteous Servant shall justify many, for He shall bear their iniquities.

Yeshua said in John 12:32 “And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw all peoples to Myself!

John 17:3 “And this is Eternal Life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Yeshua the Messiah whom You have sent.

Salvation and Eternal Life are free gifts from God! But you must ask God for them just by accepting God’s Son Yeshua as your Lord and Savior. He paid the ultimate price, by dying in your place on the Cross for all of your sins, and by taking all of your sins upon Himself.

Whether you are one of the most religious Orthodox Jewish persons or simply a Jew who has never believed in the God of Israel, if you do not personally know Yeshua, the King and High Priest of Heaven, your Creator, as your own personal Savior then say the following prayer, meaning it with all of your heart. And you will be able to know Him and you will be saved, and also when you die, you can be assured that you will be going to Heaven. And you will experience the Love of God from Yeshua, the God of Love!

Dear Lord Yeshua, I ask You to be my Lord and Savior, my Messiah! I confess that I am a sinner, and that I have broken Your commandments and Your laws. That I need you as my Savior. I repent for all of my sins. Please forgive me of all my sins, and come and live in my heart. Fill me with Your love, and Your forgiveness, and with Your wonderful Holy Spirit! Amen.

I bless all those who curse me!

Please send this special teaching out to

many of your family and friends to read.

I have written many other books and articles over the years which are all free to download from my website. My most important book is called, ‘Yeshua, my King of Righteousness, Heaven’s King and Great High Priest, which proves that Yeshua was born from two families, king David’s family through Miriam’s father, and the family of Zadokite high priests of Aaron through Miriam’s mother.

Also, the Truth about Yeshua’s Eternal Blood sacrifice is not being taught today. Father God never honored Yeshua’s Blood Sacrifice because Yeshua was just from the family of king David. But Father God did honor Yeshua’s Eternal Blood Sacrifice, because Yeshua, as the High Priest of Heaven, Melchi Zedek (my King of Righteousness) was born the fulfillment of the Zadokite high priest family of Aaron!

Yeshua was never an Aaronic priest simply because He had no biological earthly father; but Yeshua is always from the two families of His virgin mother Miriam.
