“If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me. And where I am, there My servant also shall be. If anyone serves Me, the Father shall value him.” –John 12:26

FOLLOW ME

What does it mean to follow? Based on the simplest definition of the word we know with certainty that it does not mean calling the shots and leading. One cannot follow someone and at the same time lead that same person. They are mutually exclusive.

Trampling On Yeshua

Coastlands Uncategorized Leave a Comment

“For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a fearful expectation of judgment, and a fury of fire that will consume the adversaries. Anyone who has set aside the Law of Moses dies without mercy on the evidence of two or three witnesses. How much worse punishment, do you think, will be deserved by the one who has trampled underfoot the Son of God, and has profaned the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has outraged the Spirit of grace?” – Hebrews 10:26-29

Are We Truly Honoring Him?

Does anyone else find it rather mind-boggling that (and we were in the same boat before we took the time to understand) to celebrate the Messiah’s resurrection, believers do two things that are EXPLICITLY FORBIDDEN by The Word itself:

#1 – Eating Ham – the pig is “Exhibit ‘A'” for what is an abomination and what is never to be eaten (a)
#2 – Eating Bread like “Easter Bread” “Hot Cross Buns” or other leavened breads, cakes, etc. When Messiah was in the tomb and resurrected and for almost another full week NOBODY was to eat leavened bread. In fact the leaven is to be completely removed from the home. (b)

Happy Resurrection messiah

I imagine the above headline would be something a local newspaper would print. In the western Pennsylvania, (including Pittsburgh, PA) and Tri-State areas, there will be a handful believers celebrating Passover this year.  When is Passover this year?  We’re glad you asked!  Passover is Friday April 3rd. Beginning at Sundown is when the Passover is eaten, which is, according to the biblical reckoning of time, the first Day of Unleavened Bread which is a 7 day Feast.  The first and seventh days of Unleavened Bread are each considered a Shabbat (Sabbath).

His Way or Your Way?

I often wonder why this happened and continues to do so.  In my entire life attending traditional church, bible studies and youth groups, and Church Camp, I cannot recall EVER hearing this:

“These are My appointed times, the times of the LORD that you will proclaim as sacred assemblies.” (Lev. 23:2)*
