Today is Good Friday and the beginning of the Jewish Spring Feasts. This weekend we will devote the website to the celebration of both the Jewish and Christian traditions.

Good-Friday-Wallpaper-01

GOOD FRIDAY: Christians around the world will celebrate the love that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ showed for humanity by shedding His blood on the cross. We also celebrate freedom from slavery (sin). Leviticus 17:11 “For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul.”

Today’s four posts will be about that love:

  •  6 AM – read with us Isaiah 53, prophecy of the rejection of Jesus foretold 750 years before His birth
  •  9 AM – read with us Psalm 22, the crucifixion of Jesus prophesied 1000 years before His birth
  •  3 PM – read with us John 19 “It is Finished”
  •  5 PM – each day our weekend posts on the Levitical Feasts of Passover, Unleavened Bread and Firstfruits

Join with Editor and me in reading Isaiah 53 here.

 

PassoverPassover begins – sundown tonight

Unleavened Bread begins – sundown Saturday

Firstfruits begins – sundown Sunday

Jews all over the world celebrate freedom from slavery. The eight-day festival of Passover is celebrated in the early spring, from the 15th through the 22nd of the Hebrew month of Nisan. It commemorates the emancipation of the Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt.

 

 

Sky watchers in western North America are in for a treat: a nearly five-minute total lunar eclipse just before sunrise (7:12 AM EST) on Saturday morning.

The second blood moon for 2015 will take place on Sukkot (September 13, 2015) completing the tetrad of 4 blood moons of 4 successive Jewish feast days.

“The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come.” Joel 2:31

For the past 13 years, Nancy Missler has been involved in The King’s High Way Ministry (www.kingshighway.org) which is dedicated to encouraging and teaching Christians how to walk out their faith. It focuses on the ‘practical application’ of Biblical principles.

I have excerpted a short study of Nancy’s titled “Our Free Will”.

It has been helpful to me in understanding that my best choices are always based on pleasing God.

For example, I may not feel like making that particular best choice which the Holy Spirit is prompting me to make; I might feel like my choice is the right one for my circumstances. Because, sometimes, when I choose to please God and make that best choice, it does not feel ‘honest’ to me, since I’m making it for Him and it’s not how I really feel (my own choice).

Nancy explains that when making what she calls a ‘contrary choice’ that is not my usual pattern of choice, but one that is being mindful of God’s holiness, “we are permitted to choose something we don’t feelWe have the authority – the word of the person in charge (which, of course, is God) - and we also have His power and His ability – to make that choice happen in our lives.

And, when my will gets softened and used to yielding to God’s best choices, they will not ‘feel’ so external, but will be internal and inborn.

(Yes! That’s sanctification!!) Amen,

Editor

Arutz Sheva: “In a development that has largely been missed by mainstream media, the Pentagon early last month quietly declassified a Department of Defense top-secret document detailing Israel’s nuclear program, a highly covert topic that Israel has never formally announced to avoid a regional nuclear arms race, and which the US until now has respected by remaining silent.

But by publishing the declassified document from 1987, the US reportedly breached the silent agreement to keep quiet on Israel’s nuclear powers for the first time ever, detailing the nuclear program in great depth.

The timing of the revelation is highly suspect, given that it came as tensions spiraled out of control between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and US President Barack Obama ahead of Netanyahu’s March 3 address in Congress, in which he warned against the dangers of Iran’s nuclear program and how the deal being formed on that program leaves the Islamic regime with nuclear breakout capabilities.”

Opinion: How patient is our God to not consume nations that curse Israel (Genesis 12:3).

In Exodus 32, while Moses was on the mountain, the Israelites made a golden calf. They worshiped and sacrificed to the idol. The Lord burned with anger and said to Moses “I have seen this people, and indeed it is a stiff-necked people! Now therefore, let Me alone, that My wrath may burn hot against them and I may consume them. And I will make of you a great nation.”

Moses then negotiated on behalf of the people:

  1. “Lord, why does Your wrath burn hot against Your people whom You have brought out of the land of Egypt with great power and with a mighty hand?”
  2. “Why should the Egyptians speak, and say, ‘He brought them out to harm them, to kill them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth?”
  3. “Turn from Your fierce wrath, and relent from this harm to Your people. Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, Your servants, to whom You swore by Your own self, and said to them, ‘I will multiply your descendants as the stars of heaven; and all this land that I have spoken of I give to your descendants, and they shall inherit it forever.”

Perhaps that is why the Church is still here, to negotiate for America.

Obama - More concerned about silencing Israel than protecting it

JPost: “Barack Obama is running scared. In advance of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to Congress next week about the growing threat of a nuclear Iran, the normally placid president of the United States is suddenly breaking out into a political sweat. One by one, Obama has been dispatching his minions to deride, denounce and

American Thinker: “History teaches that entities don’t willingly relinquish power; it didn’t happen in 1776 and it won’t happen now. People are generally quite zealous about increasing their power, though. This returns us to the courts’ usurpations. Do you know where the power of “judicial review” came from? It was declared in the 1803 Marbury
