This week the regular Torah parsha takes a calendar break, given that, even with allowances for some differences in the counting, the first of the Spring Feasts of Yahuah are at hand.
So the first of the readings, and the focus of the Erev Shabbat teaching, is from Exodus chapter 12, which describes the instruction concerning the first ‘passing over,’ in the land of Mitzraim, or Egypt.
During the Sabbath day teaching, given the confluence of “Holy Days” and pagan substitutes, it’s time to take a closer look at what Scripture really says, and what is most important. But Mark suggests it’s also appropriate to ask, given the emotion, the tradition, and the depths of the LIES, “OK – just what parts are TRUE?”
And one of those things it that we’re told – no less than three separate times even before the admonition that this is to be “a night of watching” – is that His instruction about His Passover is to keep it as a “statute, forever.”
Scripture repeatedly describes two whoring houses, both still in exile, and it SHOULD be clear during this season – and ESPECIALLY at this “cusp” point in history – that there are two sets of errors, as well as parallels and warnings.
There’s also a lot of consternation right now about ‘snake venom.’ But how does that make taking the Zyklon B injection, or allowing any venom to be injected into our children, any worse? Just maybe, however, the admittedly confusing story about Moses and the brazen image of a serpent on a pole might start to make more sense.
In John chapter 3, Yahushua says that,”as Moses lifted up the nacash in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up.” When we look upon Him, are we seeing the REAL “Torah Made Flesh,” or what Paul described as “another jesus, whom we have NOT preached?” And isn’t it ironic that a “medical” industry which has forgotten any promise to “first do no harm,” now ignores the death and injury that their hypodermic fangs are doing? All the while, ignoring the implications of a paganized “snake on a stick” symbol that now seems more apropos than ever?
“Passover Midrash: Look upon Him – AND the ‘fake snake on a stake’ – and SEE!”
