ISRAEL: PROTECTION FROM TERRORISM AND PANDEMICS
MUSIC / INTRO
Do NOT be alarmed at terrorists or because of terrorism. If you are anointed by G-d and serving in His purpose, NO weapon formed against you will prosper. (Tanakh: Isaiah 54:17)
Dwell in the secret place of the Most High and abide under the shadow of the Almighty, and He will deliver you from the traps of the enemy, and from calamity, disease, and plagues, and pandemics like Swine Flu. (Psalm 91) Don't worry about biological warfare or dirty bombs if you are anointed by G-d and serving in His purpose.
Align your life and your ministry to the PLANS and PURPOSES of the G-d of Israel.
"And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end that you may know that I am the LORD in the midst of the earth." (Torah: Exodus 8:22)
The Hebrew word for "sever" here used is "palah" and means "to distinguish" (literally or figuratively). In other words, G-d is putting a difference between YOU and the people of the enemy, setting you apart to show Himself marvelous in YOUR behalf.
"And I will put a division between my people and your people [the enemy's people]: tomorrow shall this sign be." (Torah: Exodus 8:23)
The word for "division" in the Hebrew above is "peduth" which means "distinction," also "deliverance, redemption."
Just as the children of Israel were severed, or distinguished, by G-d and divided as separate objects of deliverance and care, so are YOU if you declare the BLOOD of Messiah in faith over you and your home, and are anointed by G-d . . . serving in His purpose.
(See also Torah: Exodus 9:26, 10:23, 11:7, and 12:13)
At the end of this podcast teaching I will tell you specifically HOW to protect your home, family, and business from terrorism and pandemics like Swine Flu. However, to lay the groundwork, we must first find out WHY some Yehudim and others observe two (2) Passovers.
WHY SOME OBSERVE TWO PASSOVER SUPPERS
14 Nissan, 5768, April 19, 2008, Passover Eve, I celebrated Passover with my family. During Seder I explained to my family WHY the Passover we celebrate today is NOT the same as that given to Moses by G-d in the Torah (Exodus Chapter 12).
Only the PASSOVER in Egypt was observed exactly according to the instructions given in Torah: Exodus 12. The blood was usually never again put on the doors of the houses, and instead of being in great haste and ready for travel, the people now observe the Feast from sunset to midnight, with great leisure, profuse praise, and thanksgiving to G-d for the miraculous deliverance from slavery in Egypt.
After the Temple was destroyed in 70 AD, we notice that very definite practices other than we read in the Torah center around the PASSOVER FEAST. The TIME of its observance was fixed in accordance with the full moon after the first day of Spring. This was done so that the people had moonlight to travel by. However, in those days there were no almanacs or calendars giving the exact waxing and waning of the moon. The Sanhedrin, or governing body of the people had to be guided by the testimony of two witnesses.
These men were appointed to go to the highest mountaintop and there scan the sky for the first sign of the new moon. When the first sign appeared, they built bonfires on the top of the mountain. Then the people up and down the land of Judea passed on these signals by building bonfires from mountaintop to mountaintop until all the land was notified that the official witnesses had seen the first sign of the new moon.
Every Jew knew that he should count from that time of the bonfire signals a period of 10 days, and that on the 10th day he was to select the LAMB, and then there were four (4) more days to the actual time of killing the lamb. These four (4) additional days were ample time for each family to examine the LAMB minutely to see if there was any blemish. If such a blemish should be found, the LAMB was to be rejected and another one taken in its place. So it was that Messiah Yeshua offered Himself, four (4) days before the PASSOVER, as the LAMB OF GOD that takes away the sin of the world.
It was on Monday, the 10th of Nisan, when Messiah made what is now known as the as the triumphal entry into Jerusalem by the way of the "Sheep Gate". It was at the very time Jews were selecting the LAMBS for the coming PASSOVER. Yeshua challenged the scribes and Pharisees: "Which of you convinces me of sin?" (Brit Chadasha, Yochanan 8:46)
There was abundant opportunity to find fault, blemishes, or sin in the Messiah Yeshua … four (4) days! However the final verdict came from the lips of Pilate when he cried out to the crowd, "I find no fault in this man!" (Brit Chadashah: Luke 23:4) The Messiah Yeshua was the LAMB, without spot and without blemish. In Him all the types of and in the Torah (and Tanakh) were fulfilled.
Another interesting fact is: it was on Thursday at sundown that Yeshua observed the last PASSOVER with His talmidim, although the official date was Friday. This may seem a contradiction but it isn't. There were many devout Jews who were so faithful in their desire to serve God and obey His commandments that they often leaned over backwards - went to extremes - to make sure that they did not break "ONE YOD" of the Law. These devout men were fearful, lest the witnesses might possibly have made a mistake by one day when they observed the New Moon, and thereby cause the PASSOVER to begin a day over time.
It was therefore the practice, which was legally permitted, that such Jews could properly celebrate the opening night of the PASSOVER one-day ahead of the time officially set. However, they were NOT allowed to eat the PASSOVER LAMB until sunset on the next evening, the actual time fixed by the Sanhedrin. To this very day many Jews observe two PASSOVER suppers (or, Seder).
So it was quite proper that Messiah and His talmidim partook of the PASSOVER on THURSDAY evening, but there was NO LAMB. And how wonderfully divine was this plan, for on the NEXT DAY, the official day, Yeshua ha Meshiach would offer Himself as the SPOTLESS LAMB, the Paschal Lamb, slain from the foundation of the world … once for ALL TIME … to make atonement for the sins of the world.
Every year, true Jews who believe in G-d, and other Messianic believers, keep this great memorial feast of the Passover as well as Pesach. The Holy One has blessed me with seven children and seven grandchildren, all who know the LORD. Baruch Ha Shem! One year, after Seder, my seventh (7th) child, who was eight years old at the time, asked me if he could take part in mikvah. We filled up the bathtub and when he came out of the water he was speaking in another language: the biblical experience of tongues. He received the baptism in the Ruach ha Chodesh as described in the Brit Chadasha.
HOW TO PROTECT YOUR HOME, FAMILY, AND BUSINESS FROM TERRORISM AND PANDEMICS
Now, having a kosher understanding of Passover, as I promised you, I will explain to you specifically HOW to protect your home, your family, and your business from terrorism and pandemics like Swine Flu. Apply the BLOOD of Messiah Yeshua IN FAITH over the door (the top lintel and the two side posts) of your home and businesses. PRAY and SPEAK the BLOOD of Messiah over them. Just PRAY and tell G-d that He promised that the death angel would PASS OVER when he sees the BLOOD upon your door.
NEXT YEAR IN JERUSALEM
“Then Moshe called for all the elders of Yisra'el, and said to them, "Draw out, and take lambs according to your families, and kill the Pesach. You shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and strike the lintel and the two doorposts with the blood that is in the basin; and none of you shall go out of the door of his house until the morning.
For the LORD will pass through to strike the Egyptians; and when he sees the blood on the lintel, and on the two door posts, the LORD will pass over the door, and will not allow the destroyer to come in to your houses to strike you.
You shall observe this thing for an ordinance to you and to your sons forever.
It shall happen when you have come to the land which the LORD will give you, according as he has promised, that you shall keep this service.
It will happen, when your children ask you, 'What do you mean by this service?' that you shall say, 'It is the sacrifice of the LORD's Pesach, who passed over the houses of the children of Yisra'el in Egypt, when he struck the Egyptians, and spared our houses.'"
I trust this teaching has been, and will continue to be, a blessing to you.
Baruch haba b'Shem Adonai.
