ARTICLE: Keeping Passover Because JESUS IS LORD!!!

Jesus Shed His Blood To Pay Our Sin Debt; And He Also Conquered Death!!! Praise God!!!            www.onug.us

“But as many as Receive Him, to them Gave He POWER to become The Sons OF God; even to them that Believe on His Name!” (John 1:12).

“And being made Perfect, He became The Author of Eternal Salvation unto all them that OBEY Him!!!” (Hebrews 5:9).

But Then There Is This WARNING!!!

“There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and ALL The prophets, IN The Kingdom of God, and YOU, Yourselves THRUST OUT!!!” (Luke 13:28).

When I first read the above passages of Scripture, I was a Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps. I was a man of authority; I followed orders and I gave orders. I always tried to excel as a Marine, so when I read these Scriptures, I wanted to know WHY Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and all the Prophets of God were Rewarded with entrance into God’s Kingdom; while others that knew Jesus Christ were literally THROWN OUT! What did they do wrong? I wanted to make sure I didn’t make those same mistakes myself!!!

 

If we read all of Luke, chapter 13, we see that Jesus is Teaching us about the Kingdom of God, How it Works, What type of mindset is prevalent there, and How we need to think differently than we do now, if we want to enter into and become a part of It! Then Jesus encounters someone who asks Him, what I call the Matthew 7:13-14 question! Let’s look at it in Luke 13:22-30.

 

Luke 13:22-25 is the same as Matthew 7:13-14! Jesus is not wasting breath, or ink, or paper; by repeating important lessons multiple times in Scripture! Jesus is Telling us that the MAJORITY of people who recognize and acknowledge Him as Lord and Savior; WILL NOT ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD!!! What? How could this possibly be so? That’s NOT what I learned, growing up in church!!! www.onug.us

 

This is a Major departure from what the world’s watered down churches teach today: that anyone who confesses the Name of Jesus will be saved! Now, it’s True that Acts 2:21 does say:

 

“And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the Name of The Lord Shall Be Saved!”

 

But this is NOT a stand-alone Scripture, as the many perverted ministers of darkness like to teach today!

 

 

 

Remember, Luke 13:25 says Jesus REJECTS those whose confess His Name – TWICE!!! Why? The Answer is in Luke 6:46 and 1 John 2:3-6 and in John 14:15, 21!!! Read also Matthew 15:8 and Isaiah 29:13 to begin with!!!

 

Romans 10:9 is NO DIFFERENT!

 

“That if thou shall confess with thy mouth The Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be Saved!!!”

 

Again, Luke 6:46 / 1 John 2:3-6 / John 14:15,21 / Matthew 15:8 / Isaiah 29:13 ARE STILL ALL APPLICABLE HERE TOO (Isaiah 28:9-10 / 1 Thessalonians 5:21).

 

Build your Theological Understanding of God and of Christ, WITH Compounded Scriptural Concepts and Multiple Scriptures – which, when you have compiled enough of them; THEY WILL ALL ALWAYS AGREE WITH EACH OTHER!!! www.onug.us

 

“We have also a More Sure Word of Prophecy; whereunto ye do well that YE TAKE HEED, as unto a Light That Shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the Day Star arise in your hearts! Knowing this first, that NO Prophecy of The Scripture is of any private interpretation!!! For The Prophecy came NOT in old time by the will of man; but Holy Men of God Spake as they were Moved by The Holy Ghost!!!” (2 Peter 1:19-21).

 

Are YOU Understanding yet? Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and ALL The Prophets of God:

 

  1. DID NOT ADD their personal, and private thoughts and opinions to God’s Word!!!
  2. Were Moved by God’s Holy Spirit to SAY and DO Exactly What Jesus Told Them to SAY and DO!!!
  3. Honored God with NOT ONLY their lips; but ALSO Honored God with their OBEDIENCE, their ACTIONS, AND their DEEDS!!! www.onug.us
  4. THEY ALL QUALIFIED for Admission and Citizenship into The Kingdom of God, while THE MAJORITY of others who professed to know, follow, and worship God DID NOT!!!
  5. THEY ALL DID SOMETHING, which those who were Thrust Out of The Kingdom – DID NOT DO!!!

 

How Do You Qualify To Enter The Kingdom of God?

 

Watch The MOON!!! www.onug.us

 

God Taught Adam and Eve to Watch the Moon, and How to count, from the first sliver of visible light; 14 days – and then to Celebrate The LORD’s Passover. The same Unchanging God (Malachi 3:6 / Hebrews 13:8) also Taught Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, ALL The Prophets, Moses, and ALL The Apostles – How To Watch the Moon and Worship God, in Spirit and in Truth (John 4:23-24); on the 7th Day Sabbath; and on 7 Annual Holy Days – Throughout the year, UNTIL The Kingdom of God is again Established Forever upon this earth again, By Jesus Christ (Colossians 2:16-17)!!!

 

Passover Is The First, Commanded Annual Holy Day, and Gathering Of The Year (Leviticus 23:1-8)!!!

 

The Jews, this year, will keep their Jewish Passover on the 15th day of the first month of Spring! You can prove this to be so by simply WATCHING THE MOON – AND COUNTING! God’s True Church has ALWAYS Kept The LORD’s Passover, the day BEFORE the Jewish Passover is observed; and They ALWAYS WILL! www.onug.us

 

“There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and ALL The prophets, IN The Kingdom of God, and YOU, Yourselves THRUST OUT!!!” (Luke 13:28).

 

 

If YOU Really want to Understand Luke 13:28; now YOU can!!! www.onug.us

 

Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, ALL The Prophets, Jesus Christ, and ALL of His Apostles – KEPT and TAUGHT, a 14th Day, at sunset LORD’s Passover; NOT a 15th DAY “Jewish Passover”! There is a BIG Difference between the two!!!

 

Today, Satan and Rome have convinced MOST Christians to keep the Old Ashtoreth (Easter) pagan sunrise fertility rite; and have THROWN OUT Passover altogether! When the Jews, after returning from Babylonian captivity, combined the 14th day Lord’s Passover, with the 15th day celebration of The First Day of Unleavened Bread (now kept as the “Jewish Passover” on the 15th day of the new moon in Spring); the Jews, in essence made ONE Holy Day from TWO – and kept “their” Passover on the WRONG DAY!!! This was used by God to allow Jesus to be Crucified on the REAL Passover Day, as John The Baptist would prophesize (John 1:29)!!!

 

So now YOU Know! If you don’t want to be Thrust Out of The Kingdom of God; First and Foremost – LEARN to REJECT the Jewish Passover on the 15th, and Satan’s Ashtoreth / Easter pagan fest – and RETURN to Keeping God’s Feast as Jesus Christ Commands YOU to (Jeremiah 15:19-21 / Malachi 3:7)! Watch The Moon and COUNT!!!

             

The Passover Example of Abraham: www.onug.us

 

Righteous Abraham was Faithfully Obedient to God’s Word! Do YOU Know How Jesus Christ defines the term, “Righteousness” in The Bible (Psalm 119:172)?                          www.onug.us

 

“By FAITH Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, OBEYED; and he went out (on Passover), not knowing whither he went. By FAITH he sojourned in the land of Promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the Heirs with him of the same Promise.” (Hebrews 11:8-9).

 

“By FAITH Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac (Obeyed God On Passover): and he that had received The Promises offered up his only begotten son, of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called: Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.” (Hebrews 11:17-19).

 

“For I Know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they Shall Keep The Way of The LORD, to do Justice and Judgment; that The LORD may Bring Upon Abraham that which He hath Spoken of him!” (Genesis 18:19).

 

Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob were Obedient to God the Father, and KEPT The Lord’s Passover on the 14th day of the first new moon in Spring. This year that day happens at sunset, on 29 March 2018!!! www.onug.us

 

The Passover Example of Moses:

 

“Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years (from the time Abraham kept Passover on the 14th of Aviv; and left Haran on the 15th of Aviv - Genesis 12:1-5). And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day (the exact same day that Moses kept Passover on - the 14th; and left Egypt on the 15th) it came to pass, that all the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt. It is a NIGHT To Be Much Observed unto The LORD for bringing them out from the land of Egypt: This (the 14th) is That Night of The LORD (The Passover: 14th day of the new moon at sunset) to be Observed of ALL the children of Israel in their generations (that means FOREVER)!!! And The LORD Said unto Moses and Aaron, ‘This IS The Ordinance of The Passover!!!There shall no stranger eat thereof” (Exodus 12:40-43).

 

“And This Day (Passover: the 14th day of a new moon) shall be unto you for a Memorial; and ye Shall Keep It a Feast to The LORD (Jesus Christ) throughout your generations; ye Shall Keep It a Feast by an Ordinance For Ever (It will NEVER Stop)!!! Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread (from the day AFTER Passover); even the first day (the 15th day of Aviv or the new moon) ye shall put away leaven out of your houses (Spring Cleaning): for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day (15th) until the seventh day (21st) that soul (person) shall be cut off from Israel!!! And in the first day (the 15th day of the first month of Spring) there shall be an Holy Convocation (Gathering), and in the seventh day (21st day of the first month of Spring) there shall be an Holy Convocation (Gathering) 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!!! And ye Shall Observe The Feast of Unleavened Bread (15th day through the 21st day of the first month of Spring); for in this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall ye Observe THIS Day in your generations, By an Ordinance For Ever (It will NEVER Stop)!!!” (Exodus 12:14-17).

 

Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Moses Obeyed God, and KEPT The Lord’s Passover on the 14th day of the first new moon in Spring. This year that day happens at sunset, on 29 March 2018!!! www.onug.us

 

The Passover Example of Jesus Christ:

 

“And when the hour was come (sunset, on the 14th day of the new moon, of the first month of Spring), He sat down (To eat dinner) and the twelve apostles with Him (The Last Supper is The Night To Be Much Observed; and is The LORD’s Passover - taken after eating dinner). And He Said unto them, ‘With Desire I have Desired to eat This Passover (dinner) with you, BEFORE I suffer!!! For I Say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, Until it be fulfilled in the Kingdom of God (Until the Second Coming of Christ)!’ 

 

And He took the cup (of fermented, living, red wine) and Gave Thanks, and Said, ‘Take this, and divide it among yourselves. For I Say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until The Kingdom of God shall Come (The Millennial Rule of Christ on this earth)!!!’ And He took (a Large piece of Unleavened) 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 (an annual Memorial) of Me!!!’

 

Likewise also the cup AFTER supper (or dinner), saying, ‘This cup is The NEW TESTAMENT in My Blood, which is Shed for you!!!’” (Luke 22:14-20).

 

“If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet (On Passover - after dinner, and after taking of the Body and the Blood of Christ)!!! For I have Given you an Example, that Ye Should DO as I have Done To You!!! Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant (you and I) is not greater than His Lord (Jesus Christ); neither He that is sent (Jesus Christ) greater than He that sent Him (God the Father sent Christ)!!! If ye KNOW These Things, happy are ye if Ye DO Them!!! (John 13:15,17).

 

Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, and Jesus Christ ALL Obeyed God the Father; and they ALL KEPT The Lord’s Passover on the 14th day of the first new moon in Spring. They ALL Followed God The Father’s Commands on When, Where, and How to Keep This Very Special NIGHT!!! This year That Same Day happens at sunset, on 29 March 2018!!!  Will YOU be Keeping Passover then? Will YOU be eating the Lord’s Flesh and drinking the Lord’s Blood? Will YOU be washing your brethren’s feet? www.onug.us

 

“Jesus Christ THE SAME Yesterday, and Today, and Forever!!!” (Hebrews 13:8).

 

The Bible, Jesus Christ, and The Apostles ALL TEACH US to CONTINUE partaking of The Body and The Blood of Christ ONLY on the evening that Christ was betrayed (Matthew 26:26-30 / Mark 14:22-26 / 1 Corinthians 11:17-34); Paul specifically warns those in God’s Church, that some people would actually get Sick and Die for taking The Lord’s Supper inappropriately (meaning they did not examine themselves first, they did not understand what the bread and wine stood for, or they would conduct this MOST Solemn New Testament Service incorrectly, or at The Wrong Times and Place, and for the wrong reasons)!!!

 

 

The Quartodeciman Passover Controversy:

 

Most Christians alive today DO NOT KNOW the battle the Catholic Church fought against God’s Church - for years, to eradicate and kill, those who maintained an absolute adhesion to Copying Christ, EXACTLY How and When Jesus Taught Us to Keep His Annual Passover!!! The Catholic Church wanted to abuse the symbols of Christ’s Passover and turn the Body of Christ into unbroken “sun wafers” or bread pellets! The Catholic church wanted to pollute the Blood of Christ, by giving it out to anyone who wanted it, and every week - on Sunday, or whenever the Priest felt like giving it (ie: on a Wednesday Mass, to a sick person in the hospital, or to solemnize a “Special Occasion” such as Resurrection Day)! www.onug.us

          

 

Those who would Follow the example left by John, the last living Personal Disciple of Christ, and that of Paul - years after the Resurrection of Christ; maintained that The True Church would Keep Jesus Christ’s Passover (John 1:29) ONLY on the evening of the 14th day of Aviv (the first month of Spring) as Scripture dictates (Leviticus 23:1-8 / Exodus 12:1-28), and as Christ Personally Commanded His Church to continue in!!!

 

Today, in 2018 - After almost 2,000 years of mass murder, perverting and twisting scriptures, Christian religious deception, and deliberate institutional  ignorance; most have lost their ability to critically think about, and to Spiritually Discern, God’s Will, God’s Purpose, and God’s Truth (John 17:17)!!!

 

“But if our Gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are Lost!!! In whom the god of this world (Satan - Revelation 12:9) hath BLINDED the minds of them which believe not, lest The Light of The Glorious Gospel of Christ, Who is The Image of God, should Shine unto them!!!” (2 Corinthians 4:3-4).

 

Here Are The 3 Choices That MOST Will Get Wrong This Year (Matthew 7:13-14)! Remember, Heaven and Earth will bear witness of YOUR CHOICE (Deuteronomy 30:19-20); so Choose CAREFULLY:                                     www.onug.us

 

  1. The Lord’s Passover on Thursday, 29 March 2018 at sundown, as Jesus Commands YOU TO!!!
  2. The Jewish Passover on Friday, 30 March 2018 at sundown, as Jewish Custom (post Babylonian captivity) now dictates.
  3. Easter (the modern remake of Ashtoreth), an evil, ancient pagan fertility rite, on Sunday, at sunrise, 01 April 2018, as the Catholic Church, and her sister churches, universally decree!

 

Christians today should remember that Jesus Christ personally appeared to King Solomon to tell him NOT to celebrate Christmas (Molech) and Easter (Ashtoreth)! After Solomon refused to stop these false, pagan worship practices; Jesus Christ then took the Kingdom of Israel away from Solomon, precisely because of this DISOBEDIENCE (1 Kings 11:1-11, 14:7-16)!!! www.onug.us

 

Shouldn’t YOU Exactly COPY CHRIST This Year; just like Abraham and Paul ALWAYS Did?

 

 

Great Faith BEGINS With Keeping The Lord's Passover!

 

How so? Let's SEE what God's Word actually Teaches us on the subject!

 

"Simon Peter said unto Him, Lord, whither goest thou? Jesus answered him, Whither I go, thou canst NOT follow Me now; but thou shalt follow Me afterwards (when Christ Returns to earth at The a Second Coming)" (John 13:36).

 

Did Jesus mean that the disciples would go to heaven when they died - later or afterwards? No; No He didn't mean anything like that - despite what many churches try to incorrectly teach us today!

 

"If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? And NO man hath ascended up to heaven, but (or except for) He that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven!!!" (John 3:12-13).

 

We can clearly see Jesus explaining a "heavenly thing" to Nicodemus; or that the ONLY human, born of a woman, who will be able to ascend up into heaven, is Jesus Christ alone!!!

 

Notice also John 8:21,

 

"Then said Jesus again unto them, I go My Way, and ye shall seek Me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye CANNOT come!!!" Again humans are not permitted to enter the Third Heaven where God's Throne Room is!!!

 

"Little children, yet a little while I am with you. Ye shall seek Me: and as I Said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye CANNOT come; so now I Say to you!!!" (John 13:33).

 

 

 

Going To Heaven: The Big Lie (Matthew 5:5)!!!

 

Why have we been taught otherwise in our churches you might ask?

 

"And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which DECEIVETH the Whole World: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him!!!" (Revelation 12:9).

 

Satan, his 50 million demons, and many, many, false ministers all conspiring to keep God's Truth From YOU!!!

 

"For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works!!!" (2 Corinthians 11:13-15).

 

True Ministers of The Most High God should be Teaching and Preaching God's Truth (Matthew 24:45)!!!  www.onug.us

 

"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for Him shall He appear the SECOND TIME without sin unto salvation!!!" (Hebrews 9:27-28).

 

We will only be Saved from death and the grave, when Jesus Returns to Resurrect the Saints at the Second Coming of Christ (Hebrews 11:13,39-40 / 1 John 2:25)!!!

 

"And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there ye may be also!!!" (John 14:3).

 

"For this we say unto you by the Word of The Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of The Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For The Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the Trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet The Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with The Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words!!!" (1 Thessalonians 4:15-18).

 

Once the Saints meet Christ in the clouds, they come IMMEDIATELY back down to the earth - in that very same day!!! Read Zechariah 14:4-5 to prove this amazing Truth of God for yourself!!!

 

God's True Ministers Teach like Jesus Taught; that the dead, ALL of the dead, the righteous and the unrighteous; sleep unconscious, in their graves, awaiting one of Two Resurrections from the dead (Ecclesiastes 9:1-6 / Daniel 12:2-3)!!!

 

"For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion. For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten. Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun!!!" (Ecclesiastes 9:4-6).

 

"And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever!!!" (Daniel 12:2-3).

Jesus Taught us that those who Keep His Passover each year, WHEN and HOW Christ Directs us to; will be Given Eternal Life at The First Resurrection of the dead! This will happen at the Second Coming of Christ (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 / Daniel 12:2-3 / 1 John 3:1-3 / 1 Corinthians 15:20-58)!!! www.onug.us

                      

"Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink His blood, ye have no life in you!!!" (John 6:53).

 

This is Why we still observe Passover; and this is why Satan wants to hide this Truth from us!!!

"Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew Him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is!!! And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as He is Pure!!!" (1 John 3:1-3).

This is Why we still observe Passover; and this is why Satan wants to hide this Truth from us!!!

The Truth about Passover is The Redeeming, Life Giving, Sin Washing Blood of Jesus!!! One that washes our Robes so white, we can come up in The First, not second; Resurrection from the dead at Christ’s Second Coming! www.onug.us

 

"And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take The Book, and to open the seals thereof: for Thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by Thy Blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth!!!" (Revelation 5:9-10)

 

"Blessed and Holy is he that hath part in the First Resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years!!!" (Revelation 20:6).

 

“After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before The Throne, and before The (Passover) Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon The Throne, and unto The (Passover) Lamb!!!” (Revelation 7:9-10).

 

“These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in The Blood of the (Passover) Lamb!!! Therefore are they before The Throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His Temple: and He that sitteth on The Throne shall dwell among them! They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For The (Passover) Lamb which is in the midst of The Throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes!!!” (Revelation 7:14-17).

 

The REASON we still keep Passover as Jesus Did, on the very same night; is because He Commanded us to - until He comes again (Galatians 1:8-9)!!! www.onug.us

 

"For as often as (or each time) ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do Shew The Lord's Death (or Keep an Annual Memorial) till He come!!!" (1 Corinthians 11:26).

 

Keeping Passover is Demonstrating our FAITH that Jesus (our Passover Lamb) will Come Again; but the Second Time He Comes - it will be as The Lion of Judah!!! PRAISE GOD!!!

 

"Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of His Coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation!" (2 Peter 3:3-4).

 

Scoffers do not believe Christ is coming back to raise them from the grave in one of two resurrections; but the True Followers of Christ Show The Promise of His Coming, By Faith, Every Year at Passover!!!

 

We MUST have BOTH "Obedience" and "Faith" to Please God!!! www.onug.us

 

"And why call ye Me, Lord, Lord, and do NOY the Things which I Say?" (Luke 6:46). 

 

Obedience is simply Copying Christ!!!

 

"If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet. For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his Lord; neither He that is sent greater than He that sent Him. If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye DO them!!!" (John 13:14-17).

 

Then we must have FAITH!

 

"But without faith it is impossible to please Him; for he that cometh to God must believe that He IS; and that He is a Rewarder of them that diligently seek Him!!! (Hebrews 11:6).

 

Clearly, God's Word teaches us that we must have Faith in order to please God! But how do we get this Faith? That's a great question! Well, God simply gives it to us - like giving someone a glass of milk!

 

"And Jesus answering Saith unto them, Have Faith in God!" (Mark 11:22).

 

When God offers you Faith, YOU have to take it; just like you take a glass of milk when someone offers it to you! You have to extend your arm, grab the glass; and DRINK it down!!! It is only AFTER the drinking that tasting happens, and only after the swallowing that satisfaction happens! You would never quench your thirst, and your body would never grow STRONGER, if you didn't first reach out and take that FIRST SIP of milk! Faith is EXACTLY the same!!! Notice:

 

"For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye RECEIVE them, and ye shall HAVE them!!!" (Mark 11:23-24).

 

Acquiring Faith is in The Taking; Growing Your Faith Is In THE DOING!!! www.onug.us

 

"But be ye DOERS of The Word, and NOT hearers only, deceiving your own selves!!!" (James 1:22).

 

Let me SHOW YOU that Faith comes By OBEDIENCE to The WORD of God; and YOUR FAITH GROWS stronger and stronger by Saying The Word of God; and DOING WHAT YOU SAY!!!

 

"This people draweth nigh unto Me with their mouth, and honoureth Me with their lips; but their heart is far from Me!!!" (Matthew 15:8).

 

"Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near Me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour Me, but have removed their heart far from Me, and their fear toward Me is taught by the precept of men!!!" (Isaiah 29:13).

 

Abraham and The Bible both show us we Have to OBEY God in our Physical ACTIONS and in our Mental BEHAVIOR, in order to activate and develop our Faith! Further more, we CANNOT do this the way society or religion teach us to; but ONLY "The Way" God Teaches us to!!!

 

"By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called: Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure!" (Hebrews 11:17-19).

 

Most of us would like the kind of Faith Abraham had, to offer up their only son; and to TRUST God with the outcome! But God doesn't give us Great Faith in the beginning. God gives us simple Faith, and if we take it and drink it down like milk; we will develop and grow Great Faith by our OBEDIENCE to the little things God requires of us along the way!

 

We all marvel at Abraham’s willingness to offer up Isaac when God asked him to do so; but have you ever stopped to consider all the smaller steps of SUBMISSION and OBEDIENCE that prepared the way for Abraham's enormous test of Faith? Abraham Passed that test, paving the way for God the Father to offer up His Own Son for our sins on Passover; but Abraham ONLY Passed that Big Test, because He had been PREPARED through many smaller tests along the way!

 

Passover is Always The Beginning phase of God's Coming Tests of Obedience!!! Passover is the only Holy Day with a makeup date for those who were physically unable to participate in this Annual Ceremony (Numbers 9:1-14). That's How Important Passover is to Jesus Christ - and should be to us too! www.onug.us

 

Passover is the Creation of a Holy God Who Commanded humanity to Observe THAT Day - since 14 days after Day 4 of Creation Week (Malachi 3:6 / Hebrews 13:8 / Genesis 1:14-19). Adam kept Passover and so did his sons and daughters (Genesis 4:1-7). Noah kept Passover before and after the Flood (2 Peter 2:5 / Psalm 119:172 / Malachi 3:6). Abraham kept Passover long before the Resurrection (Genesis 18:14-20), and Abraham left Haran also after keeping Passover, just as the Hebrews did before leaving Egypt on exactly the same nights (Genesis 12:1-9, 41)!

 

Jesus kept Passover and Commanded His Church to continue this annual observance of His Death until He Returns (John 13:1-17). Passover will be kept by Christ for 1100 years on this earth after His Return as well (Matthew 26:29 / Isaiah 66:23-24)!

 

If Passover was the beginning of the test of Obedience for Abraham (the Father of the Faithful - Galatians 3:7); should it not also be for You and I today also? 

 

The Lord’s Passover will be kept this year, by observation of the new moon in Spring. It was first visible to our naked eye (a small sliver of light appearing on a darkened moon), after sunset, on 16 March 2018. This was the first day of this new year, and the first day of Spring; according to God (Genesis 1:14-19 / Exodus 12:1-2). We then count 14 days, until we come to 29 March 2018; when we Keep Jesus Christ’s Passover at sundown (Leviticus 23:1-8 / Exodus 12:3-50)!!! www.onug.us

 

OBEY and Be Blessed!!!                         www.onug.us

 

Throughout his lifetime, Abraham obeyed God, and developed stronger and stronger Faith! At the Lord’s Command, Abraham left his country (Genesis 12:1-4), he was circumcised as God Directed (Genesis 17:10, 26), he conceived Isaac in his old age (Genesis 21:1-3), and he also sent his son Ishmael away when God told him to put him out (Genesis 21:9-14). By the time he was asked to offer Isaac up as a sacrifice, Abraham already knew that his God would ALWAYS be faithful to His Promises!!! Abraham's previous experiences of Obedience had taught Him to Trust Completely in The Lord; and through those experiences, Abraham  had developed a Very Strong Personal Faith in Almighty God too!!!

 

A Lesson For Us:

 

In exactly the same way God worked with Abraham, God will work with us today! Each small step of Obedience to what God shows us to DO; solidifies our confidence in God, it Builds Tremendously Strong Faith!!! Then, when God challenges us with a more difficult assignment, or brings us to an intense trial; this previously developed foundation of Obedient Faith allows us to continue to Trust and Obey God - no matter what!!!

Great Acts of Faith, flow from our past interactions with God, and from our submitting to His Will over our own!

By neglecting God's simple Commanded Holy Days (Leviticus 23:1-44), especially the ONLY One with a make up date - that foreshadows Christ's Blood being applied to not only the Saints, but to All of Humanity in the Second Resurrection (Revelation 20:5, 7-15); we miss out on necessary and priceless opportunities to:

1) Be Obedient to God

2) Grow in our Knowledge of God and His Plan

3) Witness His Faithfulness

4) Develop ever Stronger Faith

5) Be Sanctified by God

6) And to be Blessed by God!!! www.onug.us

 

If YOU are having difficulty in trusting God for something big in your life, it's probably because you never trusted Him with the small things so that your Faith could grow Big! If your faith seems to be lacking in strength and quality, maybe it’s because you’ve ignored those small, and what you considered to be insignificant, "nudgings" of the Holy Spirit!!! God has offered you many glasses of milk; but you've never taken even a single sip!!!

 

Passover: The Beginning of Our Justification and Sanctification!!!                               www.onug.us

 

The Lord considers each one of His Commandments important, and He promises to Reward every act of Obedience (Hebrews 6:10-20)!!! Great FAITH begins with little steps!!! 

 

God has Blessed humanity with Seven Annual Holy Days each year that He expects us to diligently Observe (Malachi 3:6 / Hebrews 13:8). The first is The Lord's Passover, which will occur this year, after sunset, on Thursday, 29 March 2018.

 

"These are The Feasts of The LORD, even Holy Convocations, which ye shall Proclaim in their Seasons!!! In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is The LORD'S Passover. And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the Feast of Unleavened Bread unto The LORD: seven days ye must eat unleavened bread. In the first day ye shall have an Holy Convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein. But ye shall offer an Offering made by fire unto The LORD seven days: in the seventh day is an Holy Convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein!!!" (Leviticus 23:4-8).

 

I hope you will be joining us, and the Faithfully Obedient, on this coming Passover, Thursday, 29 March 2018 at sundown!

 

Remember, Friday night sundown (30 March 2018) is Biblically, The First Day of Unleavened Bread (another Holy Convocation / Gathering Day) and falls also on the weekly Sabbath day - making it a Double High Holy Day. From Sabbath to Friday (06 April 2018) at sunset, we will eat unleavened bread, for seven days; to remind us how much God hates Sin (leaven)! What a Great Way, God has for Teaching His Kids this Important Lesson!!! The Last Day of Unleavened Bread begins at sundown, Thursday, 05 April 2018. It is a Commanded Holy Day - so make sure you take Friday off from work, as well!

 

Keep the Spring HOLY DAYS and SABBATHS with us this year, on-line or in-person; as we Obediently and Faithfully Worship God, and examine the Scriptures to SEE How and Why we MUST ALWAYS KEEP The Lord's Passover as New Testament Christians! You and your children will be so very glad that you did!
