Passover of the Master – 2017

Welcome to Passover of the Master

The original Passover brought a nation out of Egypt, only to fall short and break the covenant with The Living Elohim. This event was and is a foreshadowing of the plan Yahuwah{God} has to restore his people to himself. The Messiah was born of a virgin for fulfilling the very purpose of becoming the actual Passover lamb that would hang on a tree for our trespasses. On Passover, we will reflect, carry out, and do as our Messiah King and Priest taught some 2000 years ago through the Last Supper and Passover (John 13-17).

[John 13:4-7] “Yahusha{Jesus} got up from the table, took off his robe, wrapped a towel around his waist, and poured water into a basin. Then he began to wash the disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel he had around him. When Yahusha{Jesus} came to Simon Peter, Peter said to him, “Lord, are you going to wash my feet?” Yahusha{Jesus} replied, “You don’t understand now what I am doing, but someday you will.””

Reflecting on these verses do you hear or feel a resound in your hearts? We have read these scriptures many times, but as we gather here today, this verse resounds with so much more meaning then when we first heard it.

Further Yahusha{Jesus} explicitly asks and provides an example of our service to one another as well as something we are to do as we commemorate his Death, Burial, and Resurrection for the forgiveness of sin.

[John 13:12-17] “Do you know what I have done to you? You call me Teacher and Master, and you say well, for I am. Then if I, Master and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I gave you an example, that you should do as I have done to you. Truly, truly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master, nor is an emissary greater than he who sent him. If you know these teachings, blessed are you if you do them.”

John chapters 13, 14, and 15 speaks with great clarity the importance of obedience by faith, in fact our Messiah uses various words in over 16 locations. Yahusha{Jesus} pleads with us (His bride) to obey His commands as His friends; “If you love me, you will keep my commandments.”— John 14:15

Then we see a change in the disciples status in John 15.

[John 15:15-16] (Yahusha{Jesus} Speaks,) “No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing. But I have called you friends, for all teachings which I heard from My Father I have made known to you. You did not choose Me, but I chose you and ordained you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in My Name He might give you.”

On Passover, we remember the Exodus out of Egypt, but look to The Passover of the Master where Yahusha{Jesus} gave his final instructions to His disciples before shedding His blood for the remissions of sins (The New Covenant). Leading to His resurrection being brought up as first fruits (1 Corinthians 15:23). Now we enter into and partake of this honor and display our obedience to his command to Love one another.

Thank you for joining us today in remembrance when He asked us as friends, His bride, to be brought into the Melchizedek Covenant Relationship (restored priesthood) with our King and High Priest Yahusha the Messiah.

A time to reflect and pray:

Rejecting the gods of our culture

As we consider what it means to be a royal priesthood, let us take a few moments to reflect, and examine our hearts.
Physical Israel was delivered from slavery and from Egypt’s false gods.  Through the blood of a lamb, they passed from death to life in a single night.  As spiritual Israel, we pass from death to life the moment that we come under the blood of Yahusha{Jesus}, the final Passover lamb.  We are delivered from spiritual slavery to sin and from the false gods of our own culture.    However, these false gods subtly and frequently try and find their way back into our lives.

A false god is anything or anyone that we trust to provide for us physically, mentally, emotionally and physically.    A false god can also be identified as anything or anyone to which we sacrifice.  For what do you quickly sacrifice your time, finances and energy besides to YHVH{Living God}?

In our culture, it is easy to “worship” the gods of:  money, perfectionism, individualism, busy-ness, accomplishments, self-centeredness and comfort.   Attachments to these false gods lead to the outpouring of plagues in our lives.  These plagues often come in the form of anxiety, depression, debt, anger, exhaustion, physical problems, broken relationships and more.   How might you knowingly or unknowingly be inviting these gods into your life?

Take a few moments of quiet reflection and ask YHVH{Living God} to reveal any false gods of which you need to let go.  Don’t allow shame and condemnation to creep into this process.  True conviction is a freeing experience as YHVH{Living God} reveals bondages and areas of slavery in our lives! It is his kindness that leads us to repentance.  When you are ready, take one of the pieces of paper in the middle of the table and write a prayer of confession on it.  Afterward, make your way to one of the walls in the room and take your prayer of confession with you.  Leave your prayer at the wall and receive the words of life from Yahusha{Jesus}, your Passover lamb and your risen High Priest.

Romans from a Torah Covenant Perspective – Intro

Romiyah/Romans is the most influential letter ever written and have impacted theology, politics, civil law, and church doctrine in the West.

Are you walking in freedom? In the Institutionalized Church, Galutyah/Galatians is used to justify a Christian’s severance from the law of Moshe/Moses.

Join us, as we study Galutyah/Galatians!

Hebrews Hebraically – Intro
