Passover 5

Passover 5

Bread of affliction

The bread from Heaven is the Messiah who feed Israel while in the wilderness. Just as in the wilderness Christ will share His body with believers. So when we see the Messiah on the cross, He is dispensing His body to a dying world.

The crushing of the Bread paid for our sins, but the restoring of the Bread mixed the crumbs from gentile nations and Jewish believers into one bread.
Isaiah 35:10 ransomed. Someone who is ransomed is someone who has had a price paid to set him free from captivity. This promise looked forward to the return of the political captives and, in a much fuller sense, to the salvation through Jesus Christ, who gave “His life as a ransom for many” (Mt 20:28; Mk 10:45; 1Ti 2:6).

Because of the Torah Law, the Lord set penal restitution for those who committed crimes against the innocent.

Hand nailed to the cross with blood and dirt
Psalms 98:1-3

 1 Sing a new song to the Lord,
 for he has done wonderful deeds.
 His right hand has won a mighty victory;
 his holy arm has shown his saving power!
 2 The Lord has announced his victory
 and has revealed his righteousness to every nation!
 3 He has remembered his promise to love and be faithful to Israel.
 The ends of the earth have seen the victory of our God.
(NLT)

Bread of affliction

Isaiah 52:13-15
The Lord’s Suffering Servant

13 See, my servant will prosper;
He will be highly exalted.
14 But many were amazed when they saw him.
His face was so disfigured he seemed hardly human,
and from his appearance, one would scarcely know he was a man.
15 And he will startle many nations.
Kings will stand speechless in his presence.
For they will see what they had not been told;
they will understand what they had not heard about.
(NLT)

Discovering the Core Values of our Massiah’s

Yeshua’ the Jewish Messiah tough one crowd, saying my family is “Anyone who does God’s will.”
Mark 3:33-35 33 Jesus replied, “Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?”34 Then he looked at those around him and said, “Look, these are my mother and brothers.35 Anyone who does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother.”

Core values are traits or qualities that you consider not just worthwhile, they represent an individual’s or an organization’s highest priorities, deeply held beliefs, and core, fundamental driving forces. They are the heart of what your organization and its employees stand for in the world.
Core values are also known as guiding principles because they form a solid core of who you are, what you believe, and who you are and want to be going forward.https://www.thebalance.com/core-values-are-what-you-believe-1918079

who you are and want to be going
As our Lord walks alongside us, He gently takes us to the next level; by testing the Core Values learn in His teaching.
If our set of Core Values are the same as the Mind of Christ, the trial only turns us into a living stone like our Lord the Rock.

The Rock that comes from Mount Sinai where the Lord set HIS Core Values, The Word of God.

Daniel 2:45
45 That is the meaning of the rock cut from the mountain, though not by human hands, that crushed to pieces the statue of iron, bronze, clay, silver, and gold. The great God was showing the king what will happen in the future. The dream is true, and its meaning is certain.”(NLT)

 

The set of core Values were set in place by God for the nation of Israel. These sets of Core Values were called Torah Instructions. Torah instructions were much more important than rules and regulations; they were strategies for maneuvering within a spiritual domain where creatures of darkness attach themselves to the Core values of Darkness. Just as necessary as core values are for the building of a set of principles for cooperations, the code for ethical behavior was Torah Law in the beginning.

What was the meaning of what the Prophet Isaiah when he said “an individual will “see what they had not been told,” I believe some people will realize that there has to be more to life than parties, meaningless relationships with sex and alcohol.

Romans 2:12-16 12 When the Gentiles sin, they will be destroyed, even though they never had God’s written law. And the Jews, who do have God’s law, will be judged by that law when they fail to obey it. 13 For merely listening to the law doesn’t make us right with God. It is obeying the law that makes us right in his sight. 14 Even Gentiles, who do not have God’s written law, show that they know his law when they instinctively obey it, even without having heard it.
15 They demonstrate that God’s law is written in their hearts, for their own conscience and thoughts either accuse them or tell them they are doing right. 16 And this is the message I proclaim—that the day is coming when God, through Christ Jesus, will judge everyone’s secret life.

As with my life, I found that after a while the heart hungers for the meaning of life and one’s life purpose. But this type of hunger had nothing to do with freedom and expression or a time discovering who I am; it was more like an invite to know God. While vaguely able to remember anything I heard in Church, there remained a powerful presence seem to follow and nagging me about my immoral lifestyle. So I can totally understand Isiah when he says, “they will see what they had not been told; they will understand what they had not heard about.” (Isaiah 52:15)

It’s that image of Christ on the cross; I have to make sense of it because it calls out to me, It has to mean something. Why must I reconcile its image of a suffering Son of God?

I have witnessed that the Gospel message is changing quicker than the seasons. The power of God has changed to a God that loves without judgment, and the correcting or guidance of the Holy Spirit is out of the Equation. Demons are gone away, and the Devil along with sin has been removed from sermons within the Gospel music industry.

Nevertheless, the God of Israel has reserved a people who value the price of the Oil of the Messiah’s, and the Bread of Affliction our Lord became on our behalf.

Why did Christ pay so much for that Passover feast? Why are these heartbreaking, powerful images apart from the Passover celebration?
Beyond Satan’s expectation Jesus Christ, unfairly take the punishment for the worst sinner and is crush beyond whats necessary. He is beaten beyond recognition. (Isaiah 52:14)

By His Stripes, We are Healed

Isaiah 52:13-15
The Lord Suffering Servant

13 See, my servant will prosper;
he will be highly exalted.
14 But many were amazed when they saw him.
His face was so disfigured he seemed hardly human,
and from his appearance, one would scarcely know he was a man.
15 And he will startle many nations.
Kings will stand speechless in his presence.
For they will see what they had not been told;
they will understand what they had not heard about.
(NLT)
Because Pilate viewed Jesus as innocent, he may have ordered the beating expecting that the Jews would consider it adequate punishment and consent to Jesus’ release. Scourging was a horrific, brutal form of punishment. The glass and metal of the whip tore the body apart, exposing the vital organs. Men frequently died of the scourging. Isaiah 52:10
(Amplified Bible – AMP)

However, the Bible reader’s heart is broken when they realize the cost of the Anointing Oil of the Messiah. Faithful Believers would never allow our Lord to suffer such punishment and continue to obey the Satan.

Isaiah 52:13-15
The Lord’s Suffering Servant
13 See, my servant will prosper;
he will be highly exalted.
14 But many were amazed when they saw him.
His face was so disfigured he seemed hardly human,
and from his appearance, one would scarcely know he was a man.
15 And he will startle many nations.
Kings will stand speechless in his presence.
For they will see what they had not been told;
they will understand what they had not heard about.
(NLT)

Debt canceled but entirely paid

Isaiah 48:16-18 And now the Sovereign Lord and his Spirit
have sent me with this message.
17 This is what the Lord says—
your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel:
“I am the Lord your God,
who teaches you what is good for you
and leads you along the paths you should follow.
18 Oh, that you had listened to my commands!
Then you would have had peace flowing like a gentle river
and righteousness rolling over you like waves in the sea.
There are many passages in the New Testament which represent Christ’s sufferings under the idea of a ransom or price, and the result thereby secured is a purchase or redemption (comp. Acts 20:28; 1 Cor 6:19, 20; Gal 3:13; 4:4 5; Eph 1:7 Col 1:14; 1 Tim 2:5 6; Titus 2:14; Heb 9:12; 1 Pet 1:18, 19; Rev 5:9.

The idea running through all these texts, however various their reference, is that of payment made for our redemption. The debt against us is not viewed as simply canceled but is fully paid. Christ’s blood or life, which he surrendered for them, is the “ransom” by which the deliverance of his people from the servitude of sin and from its penal consequences is secured. (Eston’s Bible Dictionary)

A relative must pay the price for redemption. He became one of us, but nothing like us.

גְּאוּלִים Redeemer; Theologically a relative of someone in the same family. Foreigner and Strangers traveling with Israel had to come under the Torah Law system just as non-believers today have to be converted into the life of a God-fearing believer. When we adopt the Word of God for our lives, ADONIA gives us the Holy Spirit as a dedicated administrator guiding us into the truths of the scripture.
A life with Christ is a life in God’s word, where we become a part of the bread of life, bringing nourishment to a dying World.

Know the difference between the converted Children of God and religious smooth talkers and figure out what will please Christ, for yourself

The Message Bible
Ephesians 5:5-13 5 You can be sure that using people or religion or things just for what you can get out of them—the usual variations on idolatry—will get you nowhere, and certainly nowhere near the kingdom of Christ, the kingdom of God.
6 Don’t let yourselves get taken in by religious smooth talk. God gets furious with people who are full of religious sales talk but want nothing to do with him. 7 Don’t even hang around people like that.
8 You groped your way through that murk once, but no longer. You’re out in the open now. The bright light of Christ makes your way plain. So no more stumbling around. Get on with it! 9 The good, the right, the true—these are the actions appropriate for daylight hours. 10 Figure out what will please Christ, and then do it.
11 Don’t waste your time on useless work, mere busywork, the barren pursuits of darkness. Expose these things for the sham they are. 12 It’s a scandal when people waste their lives on things they must do in the darkness where no one will see. 13 Rip the cover off those frauds and see how attractive they look in the light of Christ. (The Message Bible)

Ephesians 5:6-13 6 Don’t let yourselves get taken in by religious smooth talk. God gets furious with people who are full of religious sales talk but want nothing to do with him. 7 Don’t even hang around people like that.

H1350. גְּאוּלִים ge’ûliym, גָּאַל gā’al: A verb meaning to redeem or act as a kinsman-redeemer. The word means to act as a redeemer for a deceased kinsman (Ruth 3:13); to redeem or buy back from bondage (Lev. 25:48); to redeem or buy back a kinsman’s possessions (Lev. 25:26); to avenge a kinsman’s murder (Num. 35:19); to redeem an object through a payment (Lev. 27:13). Theologically, this word is used to convey God’s redemption of individuals from spiritual death and His redemption of the nation of Israel from Egyptian bondage and also from exile (see Ex. 6:6).

Proverbs 23:11-14 11 For their redeemer is mighty; he shall plead — their cause with thee.
12 Apply thine heart unto instruction, and thine ears to the words of knowledge.
13 Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die.
14 Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell.
