This document describes nothing less than a global government takeover of every nation across the planet. The “goals” of this document are nothing more than code words for a corporate-government fascist agenda that will imprison humanity in a devastating cycle of poverty while enriching the world’s most powerful globalist corporations like Monsanto and DuPont.
In the interests of helping wake up humanity, I’ve decided to translate the 17 points of this 2030 agenda so that readers everywhere can understand what this document is really calling for. To perform this translation, you have to understand how globalists disguise their monopolistic agendas in “feel good” language.
Here’s the point-by-point translation. Notice carefully that nowhere does this document state that “achieving human freedom” is one of its goals. Nor does it explain HOW these goals are to be achieved. As you’ll see here, every single point in this UN agenda is to be achieved through centralized government control and totalitarian mandates that resemble communism.
Translation of the UN’s “2030 Agenda blueprint for globalist government” (controlled by corporate interests)
Goal 1) End poverty in all its forms everywhere
Translation: Put everyone on government welfare, food stamps, housing subsidies and handouts that make them obedient slaves to global government. Never allow people upward mobility to help themselves. Instead, teach mass victimization and obedience to a government that provides monthly “allowance” money for basic essentials like food and medicine. Label it “ending poverty.”
Goal 2) End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
Translation: Invade the entire planet with GMOs and Monsanto’s patented seeds while increasing the use of deadly herbicides under the false claim of “increased output” of food crops. Engineer genetically modified plants to boost specific vitamin chemicals while having no idea of the long-term consequences of genetic pollution or cross-species genetic experiments carried out openly in a fragile ecosystem.
Goal 3) Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
Translation: Mandate 100+ vaccines for all children and adults at gunpoint, threatening parents with arrest and imprisonment if they refuse to cooperate. Push heavy medication use on children and teens while rolling out “screening” programs. Call mass medication “prevention” programs and claim they improve the health of citizens.
Goal 4) Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all
Translation: Push a false history and a dumbed-down education under “Common Core” education standards that produce obedient workers rather than independent thinkers. Never let people learn real history, or else they might realize they don’t want to repeat it.
Goal 5) Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls
Translation: Criminalize Christianity, marginalize heterosexuality, demonize males and promote the LGBT agenda everywhere. The real goal is never “equality” but rather the marginalization and shaming of anyone who expresses any male characteristics whatsoever. The ultimate goal is to feminize society, creating widespread acceptance of “gentle obedience” along with the self-weakening ideas of communal property and “sharing” everything. Because only male energy has the strength to rise up against oppression and fight for human rights, the suppression of male energy is key to keeping the population in a state of eternal acquiescence.
Goal 6) Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all
Translation: Allow powerful corporations to seize control of the world’s water supplies and charge monopoly prices to “build new water delivery infrastructure” that “ensures availability.”
Goal 7) Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
Translation: Penalize coal, gas and oil while pushing doomed-to-fail “green” energy subsidies to brain-dead startups headed by friends of the White House who all go bankrupt in five years or less. The green startups make for impressive speeches and media coverage, but because these companies are led by corrupt idiots rather than capable entrepreneurs, they always go broke. (And the media hopes you don’t remember all the fanfare surrounding their original launch.)
Goal 8) Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all
Translation: Regulate small business out of existence with government-mandated minimum wages that bankrupt entire sectors of the economy. Force employers to meet hiring quotas of LGBT workers while mandating wage tiers under a centrally planned work economy dictated by the government. Destroy free market economics and deny permits and licenses to those companies that don’t obey government dictates.
Goal 9) Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation
Translation: Put nations into extreme debt with the World Bank, spending debt money to hire corrupt American corporations to build large-scale infrastructure projects that trap developing nations in an endless spiral of debt. See the book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man by John Perkins to understand the details of how this scheme has been repeated countless times over the last several decades.
Goal 10) Reduce inequality within and among countries
Translation: Punish the rich, the entrepreneurs and the innovators, confiscating nearly all gains by those who choose to work and excel. Redistribute the confiscated wealth to the masses of non-working human parasites that feed off a productive economy while contributing nothing to it… all while screaming about “equality!”
Goal 11) Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable
Translation: Ban all gun ownership by private citizens, concentrating guns into the hands of obedient government enforcers who rule over an unarmed, enslaved class of impoverished workers. Criminalize living in most rural areas by instituting Hunger Games-style “protected areas” which the government will claim are owned by “the People” even though no people are allowed to live there. Force all humans into densely packed, tightly controlled cities where they are under 24/7 surveillance and subject to easy manipulation by government.
Goal 12) Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns
Translation: Begin levying punitive taxes on the consumption of fossil fuels and electricity, forcing people to live under conditions of worsening standards of living that increasingly resemble Third World conditions. Use social influence campaigns in TV, movies and social media to shame people who use gasoline, water or electricity, establishing a social construct of ninnies and tattlers who rat out their neighbors in exchange for food credit rewards.
Goal 13) Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
Translation: Set energy consumption quotas on each human being and start punishing or even criminalizing “lifestyle decisions” that exceed energy usage limits set by governments. Institute total surveillance of individuals in order to track and calculate their energy consumption. Penalize private vehicle ownership and force the masses onto public transit, where TSA grunts and facial recognition cameras can monitor and record the movement of every person in society, like a scene ripped right out of Minority Report.
Goal 14) Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development
Translation: Ban most ocean fishing, plunging the food supply into an extreme shortage and causing runaway food price inflation that puts even more people into economic desperation. Criminalize the operation of private fishing vessels and place all ocean fishing operations under the control of government central planning. Only allow favored corporations to conduct ocean fishing operations (and make this decision based entirely on which corporations give the most campaign contributions to corrupt lawmakers).
Goal 15) Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss
Translation: Roll out Agenda 21 and force humans off the land and into controlled cities. Criminalize private land ownership, including ranches and agricultural tracts. Tightly control all agriculture through a corporate-corrupted government bureaucracy whose policies are determined almost entirely by Monsanto while being rubber-stamped by the USDA. Ban woodstoves, rainwater collection and home gardening in order to criminalize self-reliance and force total dependence on government.
Goal 16) Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels
Translation: Grant legal immunity to illegal aliens and “protected” minority groups, which will be free to engage in any illegal activity — including openly calling for the mass murder of police officers — because they are the new protected class in society. “Inclusive institutions” means granting favorable tax structures and government grants to corporations that hire LGBT workers or whatever groups are currently in favor with the central planners in government. Use the IRS and other federal agencies to selectively punish unfavorable groups with punitive audits and regulatory harassment, all while ignoring the criminal activities of favored corporations that are friends of the political elite.
Goal 17) Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development
Translation: Enact global trade mandates that override national laws while granting unrestricted imperialism powers to companies like Monsanto, Dow Chemical, RJ Reynolds, Coca-Cola and Merck. Pass global trade pacts that bypass a nation’s lawmakers and override intellectual property laws to make sure the world’s most powerful corporations maintain total monopolies over drugs, seeds, chemicals and technology. Nullify national laws and demand total global obedience to trade agreements authored by powerful corporations and rubber-stamped by the UN.
Total enslavement of the planet by 2030
As the UN document says, “We commit ourselves to working tirelessly for the full implementation of this Agenda by 2030.”
If you read the full document and can read beyond the fluffery and public relations phrases, you’ll quickly realize that this UN agenda is going to be forced upon all the citizens of the world through the invocation of government coercion. Nowhere does this document state that the rights of the individual will be protected. Nor does it even acknowledge the existence of human rights granted to individuals by the Creator. Even the so-called “Universal Declaration of Human Rights” utterly denies individuals the right to self defense, the right to medical choice and the right to parental control over their own children.
The UN is planning nothing less than a global government tyranny that enslaves all of humanity while calling the scheme “sustainable development” and “equality.”
1984 has finally arrived. And of course it’s all being rolled out under the fraudulent label of “progress.”
In this first video, (Part 1 of 3) the concept of ‘Light’ as the common thread throughout world religions, occult societies, and philosophies is explored. The following videos in this series will build on the information discussed in this video.
People, it’s never been so imperative to apprehend that the very same New World Orderglobalist cabal responsible for the 1918 Spanish Flu Genocide and 1917 Bolshevik Revolution are now destroying the American Republic with a quite similar stratagem.
Just like the Syrian War of the last decade was not a civil war, as the Ukraine War was also not a civil war, the current race war in the USA has been stealthily fomented by domestic traitors such as George Soros, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff as well as by globalist foreign agents directed by the International Banking Cartel & Crime Syndicate and Khazarian Mafia.
KEY POINTS:Operation Gladio uses the open borders to sneak across terrorists cells who will then carry out false flag terrorist attacks upon being triggered by their CIA handlers. Gladio is steadily and stealthily building a secret army of foreign mercenaries, criminals, terrorists and other soldiers-of-fortune in every major city in America. Just as Syria was overwhelmed by Gladio-directed terrorist groups practically overnight, these strategically positioned terror cells are being readied to spring into action once the traitors push the button on CIVIL WAR 2.0. See: OPEN BORDERS & ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION: A Highly Organized Communist Plot to Destroy the USA
*Operation Gladio is the terrorist arm of NATO often known as the “North Atlantic Terrorist Organization”
It’s of paramount importance to understand at this critical point in US history that this same takeover game plan was used once before in Russia via the Bolshevik Revolution from 1917 through 1923. That the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic began just a few months immediately following the start of the Bolshevik Revolution was no coincidence; rather, it was planned that way by the same globalist perpetrators who were responsible for both genocides.
As a matter of historical fact, the list of world wars and economic depressions, pandemics and genocides directly attributed to the same bankster perps is considerably longer than the aforementioned four. For example, what follows are just the major cataclysms that have plagued humanity over the past 100 plus years.
The Armenian Genocide,
World War I,
Spanish Flu Genocide,
World War II,
9/11 Terrorist Attacks,
War on Terror,
and COVID-19 Pandemic
all have one thing in common.
They were all funded by the International Banking Cartel & Crime Syndicate.
This is what every American needs to comprehend urgently for the fate of the Republic truly hangs in the balance.
Those foreign powers who want the United States of America completely subordinated to the United Nations are working overtime to sow seeds of chaos and conflict throughout every sphere of life in this nation.
Of course, the fake coronavirus pandemic has thrown American society into unparalleled chaos as the intensifying riots are now purposefully exacerbating racial conflicts. Just like Russia was blind-sided by these twin disruptions of manufactured chaos and conflict in 1917, which marked the beginning of 70 years of brutal Soviet communism, the USA is now the target of a similar malevolent scheme.
Every individual ought to ask themselves: Why were these obviously pre-planned riots triggered right after many states and cities began reopening subsequent to the COVID-19 lockdowns?!
In point of fact, each and every major event that transpires throughout 2020 has been calculated with precision by the NWO globalists. With OPERATION COVID-19 and OPERATION RACE WAR they are actually implementing a pivotal phase of their New World Order agenda which is essential to the formation of a One World Government. Because stripping the America people of their firearms and freedom of speech are both crucial pieces of that not-so-secret agenda, Medical Martial Law has been used to curtail the First Amendment while Martial Law can be utilized to justify suspension of the Second Amendment in the coming months.
However, there is another very important goal that the globalists need to accomplish post-haste. In fact, the timing of this transparently staged race war could not have been better for the perpetrators of OPERATION COVID-19. Here’s why:
*SPECIAL NOTE: The American people have just experienced the worst 4 months in memory. The exceedingly oppressive OPERATION COVID-19 has created a national climate marked by anger and frustration, rage and exasperation, rancor and indignation. Clearly, the NWO globalists meticulously timed these racially charged events right after the illegal lockdowns and as the hot summer of 2020 is about to begin. While people are forced to wear uncomfortable and useless masks as well as impossibly social distance, after being fired or furloughed, sheltering in place and not going to the beach, many folks are VERY ANGRY indeed! So, the globalist perpetrators of OPERATION COVID-19, in order to deflect the extraordinary rage which ought to be directed at them, have manufactured a race war so the fury can be used to further divide the citizenry during this extremely tumultuous election year. TPTB have used this “divide and rule” ploy with tremendous success for millennia.
Exactly how is this anger cunningly being channeled away from being rightly directed at the IBCCS banskters, NWO globalists and Khazarian Mafia who are truly responsible for both OPERATION COVID-19 and the much more long-term COVID-1984 psyop?
Like all highly consequential wars throughout modern history, what we are all either experiencing or witnessing is yet another banker’s war. The longer OPERATION COVID-19 continues, the more it becomes evident that the American people were always a primary target. Of course, OPERATION RACE WAR only confirms that the final collapse of the American Republic is the NWO end goal of so many wars, both foreign and domestic.
KEY POINT: Whereas OPERATION RACE WAR is a naked attempt to start a full-blown civil war, OPERATION COVID-19 is an all-out war on American society. Hence, both of these are clearly banker’s wars designed to disempower the populace so that they can pose no threat whatsoever to the tyrannical establishment or to the now satanic status quo.
It’s going to get much uglier before things get better in America. That’s because the same warmongering cabal that did 9/11 is behind OPERATION COVID-19 as well as OPERATION RACE WAR. Now that they have been identified and their known crimes catalogued on the Internet in great detail, they really have nowhere to run. It’s because of these looming existential threats that The Powers That Be now feel compelled to expeditiously subvert the U.S Constitution, subjugate the American people and overthrow the Republic. Just who are The Powers That Be? As follows:
The power elite are determined to enslave all of humanity. The corporate class would rather see every U.S. citizen working on the Corporate America plantation, only at the much lower standards similar to those currently found in China. This is precisely why they carried out OPERATION COVID-19—to bankrupt all the mom-and-pops as well as shut down all the small businesses (e.g. DBAs, LLCs, Subchapter S corporations, sole proprietorships, churches, niche non-profits, etc.) across the country. In this way, destitute folks everywhere will be forced back onto a corporate slave wage payroll. See: PLANDEMIC: The Pre-Planned Controlled Demolition of the American Economy—WHY?
There are certainly many conclusions that can be drawn from this ongoing war between the Patriot Movement and the NWO Globalist Cabal; however, one of those reigns supreme at this particular moment.
The 2016 election cycle was much, MUCH more than a ballot to pick a new POTUS; it was literally the beginning of the Second American Revolution. Unlike the American Revolutionary War, this one would be fought with smartphones and tablets, not muskets and cannons. The 2020 campaign season has put revved up the ongoing 2nd American Revolution in such a way that it has become a winner take all scenario. Unless, there is some form of divine intervention that terminates the rapidly accelerating downward spiral toward full-scale war, both side are going for broke…for survival’s sake.
The real enemy in 2020, however, is the same foe as 1776. Not only is London headquarters for the International Banking Cartel & Crime Syndicate, the seat of the ever-treacherous British Crown is located there. The main point is that the Zio-Anglo-American banksters are in solid with the 1%; they are part and parcel of the 1%. Therefore, those traditionally British banksters (Rothschilds) and Black Nobility (Venetian & Genoese) predecessors will not — CANNOT –abandon the wealthy elites who front for them around the world 24/7.
“A full-blown race war is being incited to redirect the anger and re-channel the energies from the ongoing class warfare between the 1% and 99%”
As a result of this swiftly deteriorating state of affairs, the nation stands at the threshold of CIVIL WAR 2.0. Both sides of this fight to the finish are facing tremendously dire consequences in the event of defeat. Which means something has to give quite soon if the USA is to avert an irreversible catastrophe between now and election day.
Because both sides are so dug in (basically patriots on the Right and globalists on the Left), a middle ground must be found upon which to negotiate a durable peace. The country simply cannot continue in this manner; for its being profoundly and irreparably torn apart by the minute. Not only that, but the utter insanity has reached levels that are totally unprecedented anywhere ever and certainly intolerable by any standard.
So, unless the 1% wants to be annihilated, they had better come to their senses … and FAST! After all, many of their top VIPs have already been outed for the dangerous career criminals that they truly are (see “Recommended Reading” below). Really, how many more white-collar gangsters must be exposed before their whole NWO scheme collapses in a day and a night?
Global Elites Announce ‘Great Reset’ Plan—And It’s Even More Radical Than the Green New Deal
At a virtual World Economic Forum (WEF) meeting, global leaders from the United Nations, United Kingdom, United States, International Monetary Fund and multi-national corporations discussed and announced a plan to develop a “Great Reset” of the entire world economy.
“We have a golden opportunity to seize something good from this [COVID-19] crisis. Its unprecedented shockwaves may well make people more receptive to big visions of change,” said Prince Charles, one of the leaders of the event.
The purpose of the “Great Reset” is to use the coronavirus pandemic as a justification—attendees repeatedly referred to it as an “opportunity”—to completely overhaul the entire global economy, including the U.S. economy, to make a more “equitable” world and to fight climate change, which was on numerous occasions identified as the world’s next great “crisis.”
In an article published on the World Economic Forum’s website, WEF founder and Executive Chairman Klaus Schwab said “the world must act jointly and swiftly to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions.”
“Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed,” Schwab added. “In short, we need a ‘Great Reset’ of capitalism.”
Schwab wasn’t the only one calling for the world “reset” capitalism, either. Countless leaders at the event, many of whom hold incredibly influential positions in international governing bodies or in foreign governments, demanded far-reaching economic changes that sound remarkably similar to Bernie Sanders’ and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal”—except on a global scale.
Sharan Burrow, the general secretary of the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), said we need to use the present crisis to help “rebalance” the global economy.
“We need to design policies to align with investment in people and the environment,” Burrow said. “But above all, the longer-term perspective is about rebalancing economies.”
Burrow later added, “We want an end to the profit-at-all-costs mentality, because if we don’t build an economic future within a sustainable framework in which we are respectful of our planetary boundaries, and the need to change our energy and technology systems, then we will not have a living planet for human beings.”
Echoing these points, Antonio Guterres, the U.N. secretary-general, called for building “equal, inclusive, sustainable societies, that are more resilient in the face of pandemics and climate change.”
Jennifer Morgan, the executive director of Greenpeace International, said the world should use the current crisis to push “the reset button,” similar to what occurred after World War II, when Morgan says, “We set up a new world order.”
“We set up a new world order after World War II,” Morgan said. “We’re now in a different world than we were then. We need to ask, what can we be doing differently? The World Economic Forum has a big responsibility in that as well—to be pushing the reset button and looking at how to create well-being for people and for the Earth.”
Other speakers at the virtual forum calling for a “Great Reset” included Ma Jun, the chairman of the Green Finance Committee at the China Society for Finance and Banking and a member of the Monetary Policy Committee of the People’s Bank of China; Bernard Looney, CEO of BP; Ajay Banga, CEO of Mastercard; Bradford Smith, president of Microsoft; and Gina Gopinath, the chief economist at the International Monetary Fund.
The WEF virtual event announced the launch of the “Great Reset” of the world economy, but more specific policy proposals will likely be deliberated at WEF’s meeting in Davos in January 2021, the theme of which will also be “The Great Reset.” The Davos event is being billed by WEF as a “twin summit” that will include an in-person meeting of world leaders and a virtual meetings “connecting key global governmental and business leaders in Davos with a global network in 400 cities.”
What Were The Cities Of Refuge In The Old Testament?
The cities of refuge were part of the distribution of the Promised Land among the twelve tribes of Yisrael. Only one tribe, the Levites, was not given land to develop. Instead, they were to be the priests of YAHUAH and the overseers of the tabernacle and all its rites and furnishings. Only the Levites could carry and set up the tabernacle (Numbers 2:5-13). As the Levites were to have no territorial domain allocated to them like the other tribes in the conquest of Canaan, they were to be distributed throughout the land in certain cities appropriated to their use. Part of their inheritance consisted of forty-eight cities spread throughout the land (Numbers 35:6-7). Of these forty-eight cities, six were designated as cities of refuge. The cities were Kedesh, Shechem, Hebron, Bezer, Ramoth, and Golan (Joshua 20:7-8).
The Mosaic Law stated that anyone who committed a murder was to be put to death (Exodus 21:14). But for unintentional deaths, YAHUAH set aside these cities to which the murderer could flee for refuge (Exodus 21:13). He would be safe from the avenger—the family member charged with avenging the victim’s death (Numbers 35:19)—until the case could go to trial. The congregation would judge to find if the attacker acted unintentionally. If he did, he would return to the city of refuge and live there safely until the death of the high priest who was in office at the time of the trial, at which point he could return to his property. If the attacker left the city of refuge before the death of the high priest, however, the avenger would have the right to kill him (Numbers 35:24-28).
The establishment of those privileged sanctuaries among the cities of the Levites is probably traceable to the idea that the Levites would be the most suitable and impartial judges, that their presence and counsels might calm or restrain the stormy passions of the blood avenger. By their consecration as priests, the Levites were mediators between the YIsraelites And YAHUAH. As such, they would have been gifted to calmly mediate between the attacker and the victim’s family, ensuring that no further bloodshed would occur.
The cities of refuge are types of Messiah YAHUSHA, in whom sinners find a refuge from the destroyer of our souls. Just as the guilty person sought refuge in the cities set up for that purpose, we flee to YAHUSHA for refuge from sin (Hebrews 6:18). We run to YAHUSHA to escape the danger we are in from the curse and condemnation of the law, from of the wrath of YAHUAH, and from an eternity in hell. Only YAHUSHA provides refuge from these things, and it is to Him alone that we must run. Just as the cities were open to all who fled to them for safety, it is YAHUSHA who provides safety to all who come to Him for refuge from sin and its punishment.
Daniel’s friends Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego served as advisers to King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon. What lessons can we learn from their experiences?
The Scriptural story of three Hebrew lads—Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah—and their friend, Daniel, begins with the four of them being taken captive from their homes in Jerusalem in 605 B.C. during a siege by King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon. All four were intelligent, good-looking young men at the time of their capture, and they were likely of the royal family or nobility of Yahudah (Judah) (Daniel 1:3-4).
Three-year training program
Unlike most victorious kings, who typically only allowed people of their own ethnicity to rule while enslaving all subjugated peoples, King Nebuchadnezzar determined to train for governmental service those with the best minds among the people within his kingdom, regardless of their race. On this basis, Daniel and his three friends were selected by Ashpenaz, the chief court official, for a three-year program in which they would be taught the language and literature of the Babylonians.
One of the first things that happened to these four young men was the changing of their names (verse 7). As Matthew Henry notes in his commentary, “Their Hebrew names, which they received at their circumcision, had something of YAHUSH, or YAH, in them: Daniy’el—YAHUAH is my Judge; Hananiah—The grace of YAHAUH; Mishael—He that is the strong ELOHIYM; Azariah—YAHUAH is a help. To make them forget the ELOHIYM of their fathers, the guide of their youth, they give them names that savour of the Chaldean idolatry. Belteshazzar signifies the keeper of the hidden treasures of Bel; Shadrach—The inspiration of the sun, which the Chaldeans worshipped; Meshach—Of the goddess Shach, under which name Venus was worshipped; Abed-nego, The servant of the shining fire, which they worshipped also” (comments on Daniel 1:1-7).
While there were others in this training program (verses 10, 19), Daniel and his three friends soon stood out because of the food and drink they wished to consume. Although Daniel was apparently the first to resist the king’s food and drink (verse 8), Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego are soon shown to have the same mind-set (verse 10).
While we aren’t told specifically why Daniel didn’t want to “defile” himself with the king’s provisions (verse 8), it was likely because the king’s food may have included the meat of animals that YAHUAH said were not to be eaten (Leviticus 11; Deuteronomy 14), or it could have included some animal fat, which YAHUAH said was not to be eaten either (Leviticus 7:23). As to why Daniel and his friends would have refused wine, which was permitted by YAHUAH to be consumed in moderation, it could have been because part of the wine may have been used as a drink offering to a heathen deity (Soncino Commentary).
Although the Babylonian overseer was reluctant to grant these four men’s request to not eat the king’s daily provision for them, he granted them a 10-day trial on the food and drink they proposed. Because they appeared healthy at the end of this test period, they were allowed to eat the diet of vegetables and water that they had requested (verses 12, 16).
There is an important lesson to be found in this first documented test of these young men’s faith. It would have been relatively easy for them to have reasoned that since they were now captives in a foreign land, they should just go along with the king’s program instead of trying to retain the standards of conduct they had followed while in Jerusalem. But they didn’t abandon their faith. Real faith means obeying YAHUAH even under difficult circumstances. As we will soon see, this relatively small test of faith laid the foundation for more difficult ones that would soon follow.
At the end of the three-year program, Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego had their oral exams before King Nebuchadnezzar. Based upon these interviews, the king considered them the brightest and most capable among all his wise men, and they entered into the service of the king (verses 18-20).
Interpret or die
The second chapter of Daniel records a serious development within the Babylonian system of government that threatened the lives of Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego. The king had a dream that greatly “troubled” him and he was “anxious” to know its meaning (Daniel 2:1, 3). So he called for his magicians, wise men and counselors to interpret his dream (verses 2-3).
Making the situation especially dire, the king would not tell what his dream was to those he summoned to interpret it. He demanded that they both tell him his dream and interpret it or they would be destroyed (verses 4-9). Of course, the king’s magicians and wise men could not fulfill his request. As a result, the king gave a command to “destroy all the wise men of Babylon”—which included Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego (verse 12).
Faced with this predicament, Daniel asked the king for time to fulfill his demand. Daniel then “made the decision known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions, that they might seek mercies from YAHUAH of heaven concerning this secret, so that Daniel and his companions might not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon” (verses 17-18).
YAHUAH then revealed the secret to Daniel in a night vision (verse 19). The king’s dream was one that showed four world-ruling empires followed by the Kingdom of YAHUAH, which is destined to replace all human governments.
After revealing the king’s dream and its interpretation, Daniel was promoted within the empire. Having received this advancement, Daniel “petitioned the king, and he set Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego over the affairs of the province of Babylon; but Daniel sat in the gate of the king” (verse 49).
These initial tests of faith prepared Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego for the trial they would become best known for.
Nebuchadnezzar’s fiery furnace
In the third chapter of Daniel we find a third great test for Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego.
While the two previous incidents included their friend Daniel, he is not included here. Scripture does not say why Daniel is not mentioned. The implication is that Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego faced this trial without the support and counsel of Daniel.
This test occurred over the worship of a golden image that King Nebuchadnezzar had built in the plain of Dura. The king’s command was for all of his subjects to bow down in worship of this image. Anyone who would not do so was to be thrown into a fiery furnace (verses 5-6).
Because Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego would not violate the Second Commandment by worshipping this image, Babylonian officials reported these men’s lack of compliance (verses 8-12). The king then angrily summoned Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego and commanded them to bow down to his idol. If they would not do so, they were to be thrown into the fiery furnace.
Taunting them, the king said, “And who is the ELOHIYM who will deliver you from my hands?” (verse 15).
The three men responded, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. If that is the case, our ELOHIYM whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your elohiym’s, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up” (verses 16-18).
Angered by their answer, the king had the furnace made seven times hotter than usual and commanded some of his mighty men of valor to bind and throw these noncompliant subjects into the burning flames (verses 19-20). But several strange things soon transpired.
While the men who threw Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego into the furnace were killed by the heat, the fire only consumed the bindings of Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego. The three men then miraculously got up and walked around unharmed in the fire.
King Nebuchadnezzar was astonished by what he saw. Not only were the three Hebrew men walking free and unhurt within the fire, the king saw a fourth person whose form was “like the Son of ELOHIYM” also walking in the fire (verse 25). This fourth person may have been a manifestation of the being who later became YAHUSHA HA’MASHIACH.
Having witnessed this miraculous protection of Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego, the king called them out of the fire and made a decree that people were not to speak “anything amiss” against the ELOHIYM who had saved these three men (verses 26, 29).
Enduring lessons of faith
While Daniel 1:21 tells us that Daniel continued to serve in the Babylonian court until Cyrus, the first ruler of the Medo-Persian empire, came to power, the Scriptures doesn’t tell us what happened to Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego after they survived being thrown into King Nebuchadnezzar’s fiery furnace. The Scriptural record covering these three men’s lives ends in Daniel 3.
However, Hebrews 11, which documents examples of many Old Testament people of faith, includes what appears to be a reference to these three. While their names are not specifically mentioned, verse 34 speaks of people who “quenched the violence of fire.” Whether this is who the author of the book of Hebrews had in mind or not, the three recorded tests of Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego provide the following valuable lessons in faith for us today:
To have faith to obey YAHUAH in big trials, we need to prepare in advance by being obedient in lesser trials. Life’s challenges sometimes escalate in intensity and potential consequences. Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego’s decision to not defile themselves with the king’s food and drink seems to have been a test of obedience that prepared them to be faithful when the stakes were much higher. It is important for us to be faithful now in preparation for trials that may come in the future.
Tests of faith often focus on resisting the world’s influence. Even though Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego faced intense pressure to conform to Babylonian customs, they refused to disobey YAHUAH. Believers today are likewise admonished to not be of the world (John 15:19; 17:15). YAHUAH’s call to His people throughout the ages is to come out of the world (Acts 2:40; Revelation 18:4).
Our tests of faith will ultimately determine whether we will receive eternal life. The physical lives of Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-Nego were on the line in at least two of the three tests they faced. In the bigger picture, our spiritual lives are on the line. What we do with the knowledge YAHUAH reveals to us will determine whether we will live forever with Messiah And YAHUAH the Father in the Kingdom of YAHUAH or cease to exist.
As Jacob and Laban parted it says the angels of ELOHIYM met Jacob (32:1) and when he saw them he said, “This is ELO’HIYM’s camp!” and called the place Mahanaim, which means “two camps”.
Jacob sent messengers to Esau telling them of their approach and requesting his favor.
The messengers returned to Jacob and said that Esau was coming to meet him with 400 men, and Jacob was afraid and distressed. So he divided his people in two so that if Esau attacked, one will escape. Then Jacob prayed:
And Ya`aqov said, O ELOHAI of my father Avraham, and ELOHAI of my father Yitschaq, YAHUAH which said unto me, Return unto your country, and to your kindred, and I will deal well with you: I am not worthy of the least of all the mercies, and of all the truth, which you have showed unto your servant; for with my staff I passed over this Yardan; and now I am become two bands. Deliver me, I pray you, from the hand of my brother, from the hand of Esau: for I fear him, lest he will come and smite me, and the mother with the children. And you said, I will surely do you good, and make your seed as the sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered for multitude. BERE’SHIYTH (GENESIS) 32:9-12
So Jacob stayed there and he took a present for Esau: 200 female goats, 20 male goats, 200 ewes, and 20 rams, 30 milking camels and their calves, 40 cows and 10 bulls, 20 female donkeys and 10 male donkeys (32:13-15). He gave these to his servants to drive with space between each, and give to Esau as a gift. He did this because he wanted to appease Esau so he would be accepted. But then Jacob spent the night in the camp.
Wrestling with YAHUAH
The same night that all this took place Jacob took his wives, two female servants, and his eleven children, and crossed the ford of the Jabbok. He sent everything across and he was left alone.
A man then wrestled with him until the breaking of the day, and when he saw that he didn’t prevail against Jacob, the man touched Jacob’s hip socket (32:24-25). Then the man said, “Let me go for the day has broken.” But Jacob said he wouldn’t unless he blessed him (32:26). Then the man renamed Jacob, Yisrael, “for you have striven with ELOHIYM and with men, and have prevailed.” (32:27-28) (Yisrael means “He strives with ELOHIYM” or “ ELOHIYM strives”) The man wouldn’t tell Jacob his name, and he blessed Jacob there, and Jacob called the place Peniel (which means “the face of ELOH”IYM) and said, “For I have seen ELOHIYM face to face, and yet my life has been delivered.” (32:30) Then as he passed Penuel the sun rose upon him as he limped because of his hip. This is the reason that the people of Yisrael don’t eat the sinew of the thigh that is on the hip socket, because the man touched the socket of Jacob’s hip on the sinew of the thigh.
Reflections on Genesis 32
Jacob has three encounters here, two immediately (the “angels of ELOHIYM” and “a man” with whom he wrestled), and one that is delayed (his brother Esau). Jacob was clearly afraid of Esau, and in order to go back to the land he was promised, Canaan, he had to cross paths with his brother. This struck fear into Jacob’s heart. Jacob sends his family and all his possessions ahead of himself and is left all alone.
As the sun sets it appears that he has no hope, it’s as if the sun is setting on his life. This is a good illustration of how the Lord often works in our lives. He strips away everything we hold most dear, the idols of our hearts, and He shows us that He is most worthy of our affection and praise. In the face of fear and imminent danger we are humbled and we have no one to turn to for help, save Messiah alone.
This being said, there’s something more specific going on here. YAHUAH is still creating a chosen nation through whom He will bring The Messiah to save His people from their sins. Jacob had no hope, and he had every reason to believe that Esau would avenge how he had wronged him. Is YYAHUAH’s covenant choice of Jacob and his posterity in trouble of being fulfilled?
YAHUAH is driving Jacob to depend upon Him alone, and He does this by wrestling with Jacob throughout the night.
His wrestling with this “man” indicates that he now has a desire for YAHUAH that he didn’t have before, one that is awakened by the trial he faces.
He will not let go of YAHUAH throughout the night until YAHUAH has blessed him.
This awakening is fueled not by his fear though, but by his faith. Jacob has been scheming, fighting, lying, deceiving, and running his entire life. He’s always been struggling, and by all appearances he has struggled against men, but in this wrestling match it becomes evident that his real struggle has been against YAHUAH. This is the climax of Jacob’s lifetime of struggle. He is struggling with YAHUAH.
So who is this “man” that Jacob is wrestling with? Hosea 12:3-4 says:
He took his brother by the heel in the womb, and by his strength he had power with ELOHIYM: Yea, he had power over the angel, and he prevailed: he wept, and made supplication unto him: he found him in Beyt-EL, and there he spoke with us; HUSHA (HOSEA) 12:3-4
On one hand this was a “man”, yet it was more than a mere man, but an “angel (Messenger)”, and even more than a mere angel, this was “YAHUAH” himself!
And in the process YAHUAH became not only the ELOHIYM who was covenanting with Jacob, but Jacob began an active pursuit of YAHUAH by the faith of his fathers. Jacob was afraid of the wrong persons his whole life. He should have been fearing YAHUAH, and it’s YAHUAH who approaches Jacob here, and YAHUAH shows His strength by touching Jacob’s hip to give him a limp (proof that this was not merely a dream). How do we know it’s YAHUAH here?
Verse 28 identifies this “man” as YAHUAH. Also, in verse 30 Jacob says, “For I have seen ELOHIYM face to face, and yet my life has been delivered.” It doesn’t mean that Jacob actually saw YAHUAH’s face, but it’s Hebrew idiom to say that he has had an encounter with YAHUAH, in person. This does make it clear that this is YAHUAH that he is wrestling with.
Now, as the sun rises (vs. 31), as the day breaks, it appears that Jacob has hope, and that the sun is rising on a new dawn in Jacob’s striving with and for YAHUAH.
No longer is Jacob identified by his given name, but as Yisrael. No longer is he identified by his relationship to man, rather YAHUAH. He persevered in grasping not after men and the things of this world, but by holding tight to his ELOHIYM in the midst of a “dark night of the soul”.
He clung to YAHUAH by faith, and by his actions, and indeed YAHUAH blessed him.
YAHUAH preserved His chosen people through Jacob. He ended up bringing about The Messiah who perfectly clung to YAHUAH in a way that Jacob could only dream of, YAHUSHA HA’MASHIACH.
Now if we cling to YAHUSHA HA’MASHIACH by faith, and by turning from our sins (Torahlessness), we can be blessed with reconciliation to YAHUAH, justification by faith alone, and YAHUAH setting His covenantal love on even us through pouring out His wrath on His Son, YAHUSHA HA’MASHIACH, in our place.
The dark night that our souls face is YAHUAH’s wrath in hell, and we must cling to YAHUSHA HA’MASHIACH by faith, so that the dawn of salvation might shine upon us, even as the sun rises each and every morning. Indeed, YAHUAH’s mercies are new every morning through YAHUSHA HA’MASHIACH alone!
It is of YAHUAH’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is your faithfulness. YAHUAH is my portion, says my soul; therefore will I hope in him. QIYNAH (LAMENTATIONS) 3:22-24
More than a thousand and one sects and denominations of Christianity, bickering on every aspect of faith, are nevertheless, almost all agreed that Jesus Christ was supposed to have been in the tomb on the night of Friday. He was still supposed to be in the tomb on the day of Saturday. And he was still supposed to be in the tomb on the night of Saturday.* But on Sunday morning, the first day of the week, when Mary Magdalene visited the tomb, she found the tomb empty.
You will note that I have repeated the word supposed three times.
Do you know why?
Surely not to rhyme with the other three, three, three of the prophecy. The reason is that none of the 27 Books of the New Testament record the time of His exit from the tomb.
*We are dividing the 24 hour day into DAY part and NIGHT part exactly as Yahusha had. As an Israelite, He was reckoning time exactly like an Israelite, not according to any heathen calculation. Like those of the Romans from midnight to midnight. His people the Israelites, to this day, reckon the day from sunset to sunset.
If it was the time factor that YAHUSHA was trying to stress in the prophecy under discussion, let us see whether that was fulfilled, “according to the Scriptures”, as the Christians boast.”
Now enters their “little rocket of destruction” in the form of a simple calculation.
EASTER IN THE SEPULCRE
WEEK DAYS NIGHTS
FRIDAY NIL ONE NIGHT
Placed in tomb at sunset
SATURDAY ONE DAY ONE NIGHT
Supposed to be in tomb
SUNDAY NIL NIL
TOTAL ONE DAY TWO NIGHTS
You will no doubt observe from the above table that the grand total amounts to no more than ONE day and TWO nights and, juggle as you may, you will never, never get three days and three nights as YAHUSHA had Himself foretold, “according to the Scriptures.” Even Einstein, the master mathematician, cannot help you for this!
Can’t you see the Christian is giving a double lie to YAHUSHA, from this one prophecy alone. YAHUSHA said, He would be LIKE Jonah!”
YAHUSHA said that He would be in the tomb for three days and three nights, whereas the Christians say that He was in the tomb for only one day and two nights.
Who is lying, YAHUSHA or the Christians?
Let us examine some of these Scriptures which they quote from. In actual fact they form the basis of restoring the truth of what really happened.
• Mark 15: 42. “And now the evening was come, because it was the preparation, that is, the day before the Sabbath.”
• Mark 15: 46 – 47. “And he bought fine linen, and took Him down, and wrapped Him in the linen, and laid Him in a sepulchre which was hewn out of rock, and rolled a stone unto the door of the sepulchre. And Miryam Magdala and Miryam the mother of Yoseph, saw where He was laid.”
• Luke 23: 54 – 55. “And that day was the preparation, and the Sabbath drew on. And the women also, which had come with Him from Galilee, followed after, and beheld the sepulchre, and how His body was laid.”
• Yoch [John 19: 31]. “ The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the stake on the Sabbath day, [for that Sabbath day was a high day], besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they may be taken away.”
After quoting these Scriptures the attack comes with the next two Scriptures.
• Mark 16: 10. “And when the Sabbath was passed, Miryam from Magdala, and Miryam the mother of Yaaqob, and Shelomah bought spices, to go and anoint Him.”
• Luke 23: 56. “And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the Sabbath according to the commandment.”
Now comes their reasoning which I have condensed.
In all of the first 4 Scriptures it is stated that the Sabbath is about to begin. There would be no time to go and buy the spices and ointments required to anoint a body. They then give details of what quantities would be required. Now they use
• Mark 16: 10 to point out that when the Sabbath was over i.e. Sunday the women go to buy the spices but in Luke 23: 56 after preparing the spices they rested on the Sabbath i.e. Saturday.
Their final summing up, “You see the Bible is full of errors and impossible statements.”
May we now clear up the whole matter and show that the Scriptures are accurate but again man has tampered with the truth enabling him to cling to his inherited traditions which are worthless.
• Yirmeyahu [Jeremiah] 16: 19. “O YAHUAH, my strength and my stronghold and my refuge, in the day of distress the gentiles shall come to you from the ends of the earth and say, ‘Our fathers have inherited only lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit.”
A Green’s Interlinear Bible was purchased containing Hebrew, Greek and English with Strong’s Concordance reference numbers, and this was done purely for one Scripture. Matt: 28: 1. This I will repeat below in Greek and English.
AFTER BUT THE SABBATHS AT THE DAWNING INTO THE FIRST OF [THE] SABBATHS
Green’s Interlinear then translates this first line as follows:-
“After the Sabbaths, at the dawning into the first of the Sabbaths, – – -”
Now check every Bible you possess and you will find that this has been ignored and in place of Sabbaths they have changed it to Sabbath singular.
Most of them read as follows:- “After the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week – – -”
But why did they do this and on what authority? It was done to hang on to the great Baal festival of fertility “Easter” with the rabbits and eggs as symbols of fertility. However, this will be another exercise. We are to prove the three days and three nights and to put the Moslems in their place.
[ 1] In that week there were TWO SABBATHS as shown in Matt 28: 1.
[ 2] The Sabbath of Unleavened Bread, the High Sabbath of John 19: 31.
[ 3] The weekly Sabbath of Luke 23: 56.
[ 4] R.A.Parker & W.H. Dubberstein, Babylonian Chronology, 626 BC – AD 75,
was used to determine when the Passover took place in AD 30 and AD 31.
[ 5] In AD 30 and AD 31 Passover took place on our Wednesday night.
[ 6] The triumphant entry of our Messiah into Yerushalayim was on Palm Sunday.
[ 7] The same time the lambs were being separated to be observed for blemishes.
[ 8] He entered Yerushalayim each of those four days to be observed.
[ 9] On the 4th day Pilate said he could find no guilt in Him – no blemish.
 He was impaled on Wednesday and was removed before sunset of that day.
 Thursday was the special Sabbath, the Feast of Unleavened Bread, still today.
 Friday the women went and bought spices to prepare to anoint His body.
 They rested on the weekly Sabbath in accordance with the commandment.
 After the Sabbaths as the dawning into the first of the Sabbaths.
 The First of the Sabbaths – now started the counting of the Sabbaths until the next Festival, called the Feast of Weeks, the 7 Sabbaths , Pentacost, Shavouth.
 So simple!
PASSOVER WEEK IN THE SEPULCRE
DAY NIGHT WEDNESDAY NIL 1ST NIGHT Placed in tomb at sunset THURSDAY/HIGH SABBATH/FEAST OF UNLEAVENED BREAD
John 19:31 1ST DAY 2ND NIGHT
In the tomb
FRIDAY 2ND DAY 3RD NIGHT
In the tomb
In the tomb 3RD DAY Risen
TOTAL 3 DAYS 3 NIGHTS.
Therefore out Messiah rested on the Sabbath and rose at the end of the Sabbath. The end of the third day, before 6pm. Before the 4th day. As HE said “3 days and 3 nights”
Matt 12 verses 38 to 40:-
“Master [Rabbi], we would see a sign from Thee. But He answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign [miracle]; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonah: For as Jonah was three days and three nights in whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.”
Interesting that Passover was on a Wednesday in both AD 30 and AD 31. In the beginning I had a leaning towards AD 31. However, a dear brother in Messiah enlightened me with the fact that 40 is the period of probation and testing i.e. 40 days in the wilderness being tempted and 40 years in the desert. From AD 30 till AD 70 a period of 40 years the Jews/Israelites carried on with blood sacrifices. Then in AD 70 Titus destroyed the temple and everything else. Since then there has been no blood sacrifice of the Jews/Israelite. The Easter heresy denies the divinity of our Messiah.
According to this Christian tradition He did not fulfil the one sign of Him being the Messiah, the sign of the prophet Yonah.
This heresy was prophesied. 2 Peter 2: 1 “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who secretly shall bring in damnable heresies even denying the Messiah. That bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.”
We were purchased with His blood and the Easter heresy denies His divinity.
Our Heavenly Father certainly works and uses unusual methods.
Yoch [John] 16; 13,
“Howbeit when He, the Spirit of Truth is come, He will guide you into all truth.”
A Sabbath Resurrection and Wednesday Impalement of YAHUSHA The Messiah
This article begins with concessions to the traditional Friday afternoon Impalement and Sunday morning resurrection point of view.
Why concede points to the Sunday resurrection?
Because whatever you heard or studied about this before, you’ve most likely studied an incomplete version of the Wednesday Impalement and Sabbath resurrection that neglects these points.
These neglected points may serve as reason to reject the Sabbath resurrection.
On the other hand, the Wednesday scenario was always viable in spite of these difficulties, because the Friday arguments has problems of its own.
What is needed in this day and age of apostasy is a firm grounding in all of the Scriptural facts, and not just some particular version of a theory.
First there is no doubt that the resurrection was just before dawn in the morning hours. It was not in the middle of the afternoon on the Sabbath.
Christians are correct to believe that YAHUSHA rose from the dead in the morning. They have not been deceived about which half of the day Messiah came out of the grave. Matthew 28:1 says, “as it began to dawn”; Mark 16:2 says, “very early”; Luke 24:1 says, “very early in the morning”; and finally, John 20:1 says, “when it was yet dark”.
If the Wednesday Impalement and Sabbath resurrection can survive this concession, incorporate it, and explain it, then it will have survived a major objection. It will be all the more worthy of consideration. On the other hand, if it proves impossible to bring it into line with a morning resurrection, then it will have to be conceded that it does not provide a clear solution to the confused chronology of YAHUSHA’s Impalement and resurrection.
The traditional view is also correct that the resurrection was on the third day and not the fourth. It is correct that by biblical standards, the afternoon of the Sabbath would be the fourth day from Wednesday afternoon. Sunday morning, just after sunrise, is definitely the third day from Friday. If the Wednesday view cannot overcome this error in counting, then we may have to conclude that the theory is an inconclusive alternative to the Friday view.
There are other reasons why Christians will not want to consider the Wednesday Impalement and Sabbath resurrection.
They may have learned about it from a heretical group that denies the eternity of the Son of YAHUAH, YAHUSHA.
There are many cults that quickly recognize and imitate a form of godliness, but then they reject the Son of ELOHIYM, even denying that he is YAHUAH our ADONAI.
Christians need to learn that Satan’s expertise is in packaging up neglected truths with damnable falsehoods. Satan hopes to trick some into the lie using the neglected truth, and at the same time make other Christians, keep away from the neglected truth due to the bad reputation packaged with it. Yet it is necessary to make a search into what the truth is. For most Christians already are part of a cult or heresy. The only way to escape is to pray and study the truth your group or denomination may be neglecting. Specifically, everyone needs to pray that YAHUAH will show them the truth on every matter. One need to believe they will receive an answer fitting their level of maturity.
Another reason Christians may not be able to see certain truths is that they are using Bibles that hide that truth.
The Catholics make their own translations. Different Protestant denominations also make their own translations. And every other cult in the world tries to make its own translation of the Scriptures.
There are so many versions of the Bible in America, that no one can blame Christians for being confused.
On the other hand, the confusion is witness to the reality of the attack of Satan on the Word of YAHUAH. If he cannot burn the Scriptures, then he prints his own, and uses them to deceive Christians.
Should you choose this mission, to seek the truth, you will be met with all of these alternatives. The situation is comparable to ancient times when the people who knew the truth lived 10,000 miles away from those who did. A simple web search on a Scriptural topic will yield more controversy than anyone with a lifetime of scholarship can unravel.
No one actually has time to sift through the fog that Satan has created. And the fog is not just lies. That fog is dressed up in every form of outward religion. It looks spiritual, tastes spiritual, and is partly spiritual, but is mixed with deadly poison. Will you be able to drink the truth without swallowing the poison first? Will you endure the trek while you search?
Many will try and be unable. That is what YAHUSHA said. Blessed is the one who tries asking YAHUAH for help.
Remember, if you are content with everything you were taught by your group, then it is likely that you do not have an eye to discern neglected truth. It is probable that you are not practicing the belief as YAHUSHA meant it to be practiced. It is likely that somewhere in the past your fathers lied.
Is that not the testimony of the Scriptures?
One thing is very clear in the Scriptures, in both Old and New Testaments: the majority of people who THINK they have the truth actually believe lies and oppose the truth whenever it comes along. And these people make every claim to being perfectly religious and perfectly spiritual about it. Only the absolute truth can set you free from all of this. The absolute truth is Messiah YAHUSHA crucified and raised from the dead. Therefore, we need to understand the facts of his death and resurrection, and the important conclusions we can draw from those facts.
In the Messiah’s death and resurrection, two important Scriptural themes come together. These are the Law and the Gospel. Everything about YAHUSHA’s death and resurrection was according to the Torah and Prophets. Both the laws and the teachings of forgiveness for sin are exalted in the historical events of Messiah’s life on earth. This article will show how YAHUSHA exalts both the Torah and the Besorah (Good News). He died to make payment for our sins, to satisfy YAHUAH’s just decree of punishment for sin. He rose again to give us life, and this life is expressed in His law which he is wants to write on our hearts. Whoever desires forgiveness of sin and this eternal life of living the way YAHUAH desires will be saved. One begins by asking YAHUSHA to forgive their sins. Doing this, you will be forgiven, and will be given YAHUAH’s RUACH HA’QODESH (Holy Spirit) so that you will live and learn to love YAHUSHA by keeping his commandments.
Why then do we believe that Messiah rose from the dead on the Sabbath day?
For two reasons. First, the Sabbath best illustrates rest and redemption from sin, and peace in the life to come. Second, because the facts necessary to make this point are actually true. Messiah did rise from the dead on the Sabbath day. I mean the seventh day Sabbath, which is called “Saturday” in English or “El Sabado” in Spanish. This is the same Sabbath that Jewish People and many Christians worship YAHUAH on. In order to understand this, we will need to take a fresh look at the original Greek manuscripts and some accurate translations. But we will not get too detailed here. The current article you are reading is intended to be as non-technical as I can make it, and it is intended to be devotional. That means, I will frequently explain the spiritual meaning of things and what it means to you.
Putting the resurrection on the Sabbath is related to possible years for the Impalement, which in turn is related to the solution of Daniel 9, which in turn is related to when the sabbatical years are, which in turn is related to when the Jubilee year is, which in turn are related to the overall framework of Scriptural chronology. If you are willing to digest all this information, then you will be just as confident as I am about the truth of the Scripture, and exactly how and when YAHUAH did things in history. Taking the whole counsel of YAHUAH and putting it together into a consistent whole is the real proof of the divine inspiration of Scripture and why we should listen to its teaching.
Matthew 28:1 teaches a Sabbath resurrection: “On the later of the Sabbaths, at the dawning for the first of the Sabbaths, came Miryam Magdalene and the other Miryam to see the tomb.” It begins, “On the later Sabbath …” because there were two Sabbaths in Passion Week. One Sabbath was the annual Passover feast day, and the other was the weekly seventh day Sabbath which followed. In Passion Week, the annual Sabbath was on Thursday. “On the later of the Sabbaths” tells us that the resurrection was on the weekly Sabbath, and not on the annual Sabbath. Yahudiym (Jewish) believers in YAHUSHA know that the annual Passover feast day is a rest day as well as the weekly Sabbath.
Why does the above translation of Matthew 28:1 differ from what Christians are used to? Actually, what Christianity does not realize is that with respect to translations, it is like the proverbial frog being slowly boiled to death in a pan of water.
Errors have crept into the translation because either ancient translators did not understand the text or they had an unspiritual distaste for things that reminded them of Yahudiym (Jewish) laws, like the Sabbath. Here is a list of resources that admit that the original Greek meant “Sabbath”.
• The Concordant Greek Text
• The Concordant Literal New Testament
• Robert Young’s Literal Translation
• Some of John Calvin’s Commentaries
• The Companion Bible
• The Interlinear Bible by J.P. Green, 2nd Edition, Vol. IV
• The Coverdale Quarto Bible, 1537
• Some of Wycliffe’s Translations
• Some of Tyndale’s Translations
• The Rheims version, 1582
• The Bishop’s Bible, 1568
• The Latin Vulgate
• The Old Latin
• All Greek Texts
• The Syriac Peshitta
It was only at the time of the reformation that the translators decided they could change the text from “Sabbath”. Now they translate “week”. But the original Matthew said, “On the later of the Sabbaths, at the dawning for the first of the Sabbaths, came Miryam Magdalene and the other Miryam to see the tomb.” The book of Leviticus shows us what the end of Matthew’s verse means. Matthew wrote, “at the dawning for the first of the Sabbaths”. If we use specifically the King James Version, we will get an accurate explanation of the original Hebrew, “And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven sabbaths shall be complete:” (Lev. 23:15).
This text gives commandment to Yisrael to begin counting something after the annual Passover Sabbath. It says they should count “seven sabbaths”. “At dawn for the first of the Sabbaths” will be the first one of these Sabbaths. It will be exactly the first Sabbath after the annual Passover feast.
So the resurrection was prior to the dawning on the weekly Sabbath after Passover. Why has Christianity not seen this?
Do you really expect a majority to be correct?
YAHUSHA came to an adulterous and unbelieving generation of Yahudiym (Jews). Do you really think Christianity has improved on the righteousness of the Yahudiym (Jews)?
While Christianity has spread over the whole world, it has also been degenerating at the same time. With each new wave of spreading, its original potency and truth has been diluted bit by bit.
Did not YAHUAH’s law warn us: “Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil;” (Exodus 23:2). The Yahudiym (Jewish) People rejected the most important teaching of the Torah and Prophets. The most important teaching that would tell them that YAHUSHA is the Messiah, the Son of YAHUAH, the embodiment of the Most High in human form. Why then should you expect the Gentile Christians to do any better? The first generation began well, but the story of Scriptural history is a lesson in the speed and quickness of apostasy! Did not Messiah himself predict that at the end of the age, the love of most would grow cold, and the many would fall away from the truth?
As always, apostasy overturns the most important doctrines and teachings of the Scripture. Those who want to be lawless overturn and remove everything that reminds them of YAUAH’s Law. That includes the Sabbath. They remove just enough to become disobedient to YAHUAH, and then Satan leaves them alone. He wants them to retain the more minor truths, because Satan wants to keep their children from seeking the truth elsewhere.
Messiah YAHUSHA died on a Wednesday afternoon, and rose from the dead just before dawn on the Sabbath day. Now, we agreed that Messiah did rise on the third day. The time immediately before dawn on the weekly Sabbath of that week falls just within the limit of three days. In this case a day is a 24 hour period. But when does it begin and end?
YAHUSHA’s death on the tree was a sacrifice for our sin. The scripture also calls his sacrifice a “peace” offering, because it makes “peace” or Shalom between YAHUAH and man. Here is the Torah’s regulation for a peace offering, “And the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings for thanksgiving shall be eaten the same day that it is offered; he shall not leave any of it until the morning” (Lev. 7:15). Notice that the offering must be eaten “the same day that it is offered”? Yet, the limit of that day is defined as “until the morning”. The Rabbis, who liked to put fences around the law, changed the limit to midnight. However, the Torah teaches that the offering could be eaten as long as it was night, as long as dawn did not lighten the countryside. By this definition of “day” for a “peace offering”, the day lasted from morning to morning. And the peace offering is a type of Messiah. Therefore, we should not be surprised if the three days are counted according to a Temple day for a sacrificial offering.
So let us calculate the three days according to the peace offering. The death of Messiah falls on the first day of the count, between dawn on Wednesday and dawn on Thursday.
Both the Passover lamb and the peace offerings offered at the same hour YAHUSHA died would have to be eaten by the end of that “same day” which is defined as “until the morning”. In the case of a sacrifice on Wednesday afternoon, the day ends at dawn on Thursday. That is the first day. Some offerings could be eaten on the second day (cf. Lev. 19:6). The second day was dawn on Thursday to dawn on Friday. But no offering could be eaten on the third day. The third day was dawn on Friday to dawn on the Sabbath. YAHUSHA was raised before dawn on the Sabbath. It was still the third day until the dawn lightened the countryside. Yet YAHUSHA’s offering was kosher on the third day, so that we may partake of his resurrection.
YAHUSHA’s offering is an exception, as pointed out in the Psalms, “Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see decay” (Psalm 16:10).
YAHUSHA preceded the light in his resurrection because he is the greater light. The worldly light was not allowed to precede him. We must notice a few details about the resurrection. John 20:1 shows that it must have happened “when it was yet dark”.
Further, it was still too dark later because Miryam saw YAHUSHA “standing, and knew not that it was YAHUSHA” (John 20:14). We have the sure word of prophecy to confirm that YAHUSHA came out of the grave while the deepest dawn was only hinting in the eastern sky. Everywhere else, it was still dark, and therefore still night. For YAHUAH called the darkness “night”. The prophet Hosea says, “Then we shall know, we shall pursue to know YAHUAH. At deep dawn His going forth is fixed, and He comes as the rain to us, as the later rain showing the earth” (Hosea 6:3). The word here used for “deep dawn” is a specific Hebrew word shakhar that always means the deepest dawn. It means the first hint of red in the east before the night is banished from the countryside. It is of the same root as the Hebrew word for the color “black”. Everywhere it is black, except with the hint of light coming in the east.
The prophet says “at deep dawn His going forth is fixed” and determines the exact time that YAHUSHA, who is YAHUAH in human form, came out of the tomb. If we recognize this, then we shall recognize the ADONAI. The whole passage from Hosea 6:1-3 contains details of YAHUSHA’s death and resurrection. Even the end of chapter five speaks of it. But we must not get lost in all the details. What I want you to take from this is that YAHUSHA was raised while it was still night. YAHUSHA was raised while it was still night, before the limit of the next day arrived in accord with the timing for a Temple sacrifice, which could not be eaten when it became morning. The Wednesday Impalement and Sabbath Resurrection is in complete agreement with the fact that YAHUSHA rose “on the third day”.
On the other hand, we will see from the notes of time in our gospels and the prophetic passage in Hosea 6:3 that the traditional Friday to Sunday explanation now lacks the third day!
One may try to count Friday as day one, and Sabbath as day two, but the third day is missing, because no part of the daytime of Sunday may be included.
The temple definition of day, as being from morning to morning will not help here. The third day would only begin with the light on Sunday, but we have seen that YAHUSHA preceded the light.
Also, the Yahudiym (Jewish) legal definition of a holy day will not help this view either. The day definition for a holy day is sunset to sunset. Before Friday sunset, we have one day, and then up to Saturday sunset, two days, and from Saturday sunset to Sunday sunset, three days. This is “on the third day”, but YAHUSHA DID NOT say he was raised on the third day according to the standard for a holy day. No he did not. We can easily show that using the standard of the holy day, he said he would rise “after three days” (Mark 8:31, 9:31). There are many other texts that say this by the way, but you will have to get technical. For our purposes here, “after three days” in Mark 8:31 and 9:31 will be sufficient. After one day begins at sunset on Friday. After two days begins at sunset on Saturday, BUT after three days does NOT begin until after sunset on Sunday. Therefore, the Jewish standard for a 24 hour day does not work with YAHUSHA’s resurrection.
On the other hand, “after three days” works just fine with the usual Yahudiym (Jewish) definition of a 24 hour day. After one day begins at Wednesday sunset. After two days begins at Thursday sunset, and after three days begins at Friday sunset, and it remains the time period of “after three days” all the way up to sunset on the Sabbath. So “after three days” contradicts the traditional chronology. There are actually some Scriptural Greek manuscripts that have “after three days” in other passages. Also, many of the “on the third day” passages, when they are reverted to literal Greek and then to Hebrew should be “after three days”.Mark 16:1 tells us that the women “bought spices” after the Sabbath. That is, they bought spices after the annual Sabbath.
They also rested on this Sabbath according to the commandment (Luke 23:56). For the Torah commanded Yisrael to rest on the Passover Sabbath. See Lev. 23:7. Mark 16:2 says again that the women went to the tomb “very early in the morning on the first of the Sabbaths”. This was the first weekly sabbath after the annual Passover, called the “first Sabbath” because Yisrael was supposed to count seven Sabbaths after the Passover. Notice that Mark has mentioned both Sabbaths in Passover week? He first mentions the annual Sabbath, which fell on Thursday, and then he notes the buying of spices between the two Sabbaths, and then he moves forward to the weekly Sabbath, called the “first of the Sabbaths” following Lev. 23:15. This was the second Sabbath in that Week. On it the women went to the tomb. On it YAHUSHA was raised.
The reconciling of all the Scriptural texts in the Besorah (gospels) regarding the timing of YAHUSHA’s death and resurrection should give us absolute assurance that he came out of the grave. It should also teach us that Messiah meant EXACTLY what he said. Matthew 12:40 introduced most people to the Wednesday Impalement and Sabbath resurrection.
We have now seen that many other texts demonstrate the Sabbath Resurrection. The “three days and three nights” of Matthew 12:40 work perfectly. The nights are Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday night. The days are Wednesday day, Thursday day, and Friday day. YAHUSHA died in the midst of the first day, and was raised toward the end of the third night.
Yet, for the Sabbath resurrection, we must agree with the traditionalists on every example of inclusive counting they give. Only part of Wednesday is counted as the first day, and only most of Friday night is counted as the third night.
We can safely state that YAHUSHA rose on the third day at dawn on the Sabbath. Everything fits.
Even the statement in Luke 24:21 where Cleopas, a disciple says, “today is the third day since these things happened” fits.
To say the “third day since” means the same thing as the third day “after”. At sunset on Wednesday up to sunset on Thursday, it was one day “since” the Impalement .
Between sunset Thursday and sunset Friday, it was two days “since” the Impalement. And finally, between sunset Friday and sunset ending the Sabbath, it was the “third day since” the Impalement. Luke 24:21 makes sense in exactly the same way as “after three days” in Mark 8:31. So the two men walked with YAHUSHA to Emmaus later on the Sabbath.
Now Luke 24:21 is a problem for the Friday to Sunday belief.
In that case the “first day since” the Impalement is the period after sunset on Friday. The “second day since” the Impalement is the period between sunset ending the Sabbath and sunset on Sunday, and the “third day since” would have to be time after sunset on Sunday. So we see that Luke 24:21 does not actually work with the Friday to Sunday scenario. The objection in Luke 24:21 would only be fit to be spoken Monday morning.
With the Impalement firmly fixed on Wednesday afternoon, the “preparation of the Passover” (John 19:14) preceding the annual “Sabbath” “high day” (John 19:31), we can see that the 14th of Abib was Wednesday, and the 15th of Abib was Thursday. The month of Abib was the first month, and this began with the sighting of the new moon in Jerusalem. Since the sun, moon, and earth move through the heavens according to regular laws that can be computed, we can use a computer program to find out in which years the Passover preparation would have fallen on a Wednesday. Here is a list of the choices:
• 30 A.D. = April 7, Friday
• 31 A.D. = March 27, Tuesday
• 32 A.D. = April 14, Monday
• 33 A.D. = April 3, Friday
• 34 A.D. = March 24, Wednesday
We see that only A.D. 34 fits with the astronomically calculated date for the 14th of Abib preparation of the Passover to fall on Wednesday. Quite independently, Sir Isaac Newton reached the conclusion that the Passion was in A.D. 34, and the famous Jewish Scholar Solomon Zeitlin also reached the same conclusion.
So far all the data fits. Let’s summarize it:
• three days and three nights (Matthew 12:40)
• after three days (Mark 8:31, 9:31)
• the third day (Luke 24:46)
• On the later Sabbath (Matthew 28:1a)
• the first of the Sabbaths (Matthew 28:1b, Mark 16:2, Luke 24:1, John 20:1, 19)
• third day since (Luke 24:21)
• high day Sabbath (John 19:31)
• spices bought after the annual Sabbath (Mark 16:1)
• Women rested on the annual Sabbath (Luke 23:56; Leviticus 23:7, 11)
• It was still dark at the tomb (John 20:1)
• The resurrection was when deep dawn appeared in the east (Hosea 6:3)
• Friday to Sunday does Not fit the following data:
◦ Matthew 12:40
◦ Mark 8:31, 9:31
◦ Luke 24:21
◦ Matthew 28:1a
◦ Matthew 28:1b, Mark 16:2, Luke 24:1, John 20:1, 19
◦ John 19:31 (only awkwardly)
◦ Mark 16:1 (only awkwardly)
◦ John 20:1
◦ Hosea 6:3
With the Sabbath Resurrection firmly pegged to A.D. 34, we can now show how the Daniel 9:24-25 prophecy of Messiah’s first coming works out perfectly and naturally with the Sabbatical Year.
The sabbath year comes regularly every seven years. Accordingly, the very year before A.D. 34 is a sabbath year: 32/33 A.D. Also if you keep counting backward, the year 445/444 B.C. was a sabbath year on the same cycle. It was in this sabbath year, 445/444 B.C. that Nehemiah rebuilt the city of Jerusalem. The prophecy calls sabbath year cycles “week” or “sevens”. However, it is little known that the Sabbath year itself is called a “seven”. The text calls for seven sevens and sixty two sevens, or 69 sabbatical years. Then it says “after” this time period expires, the Messiah would be “cut off”, a Hebrew idiom meaning to be put to death or banished. The number of Sabbath years from 445/444 B.C. to A.D. 32/33 is EXACTLY 69. That is right, the fit is exact. There is no need for any manipulative tricks, like resorting to the claim of a prophetic year of 360 days. The actual sabbatical cycle is all that is needed. It is the one that Yisrael really observed. It is the one that Yisrael will again learn to observe when Yisrael again obeys the Torah of Messiah YAHUSHA.
There was a 360 year before the great flood, and there only seems to be one in the book of Revelation simply because many ignorant of the Scriptural new moon errantly assume a month is always 30 days. For instance the 42 months are NOT 1260 days.
Knowing the correct Sabbath year, we can use this information to reconstruct the year of Jubilee. The year of Jubilee comes after seven cycles of sabbatical years. The year after the 49th year is the Jubilee, which is called the 50th year (Lev. 25:1-8).
When one discovers one piece of a puzzle, then other pieces start to fit too. You know you are putting a puzzle together correctly when pieces start to fit all over the place. For this reason, we can have absolute certainty about when and how YAHUSHA rose from the dead. We can be certain about Scriptural chronology. We can prove what we believe to the world. We can be assured of an absolutely solid historical foundation for the Besorah (good news).
We can also be sure of one other very important thing.
Did you know that every Church and denomination and sect has a view of Scriptural history and chronology that is necessary to support their different doctrines and teachings?
They may not tell you about it, but their doctrines require certain beliefs about chronology as well. You can be sure, that if you know and thoroughly test this chronology, that you will never be deceived by these cults and alternative Christianity’s that compete with the original Belief that Messiah YAHUSHA once delivered to the Saints. And you can be sure that your knowledge of the original Belief is absolutely correct.
The Jubilee year is intimately connected with the Messianic restoration at the end of the age. In the year of Jubilee, the “Great Trumpet” is blown, announcing redemption of the land of Yisrael. We can use our knowledge of the sabbath year to show how the Jubilee cycle fits.
The Jubilee is synchronized with the Exodus and Hezekiah’s 15th and 16th years, a period of time that works out with all the other Scriptural data as exactly 18 Jubilees.
The Jubilee is also alluded to in the 2nd year of King Saul (1 Sam. 13:1-3), the 4th year of David (2 Sam. 6:15), the fall of Nineveh (Isaiah 27:13), the restoration of Nebuchadnezzar to his throne (Dan. 4:34). The Jubilee also synchronizes with the first year of creation. This all works out perfectly with all other Scriptural data, with no contradictions.
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
Are you a weed, or do you seek the pearl of great price? The pearl is knowledge of the kingdom. It is the oil that the wise virgins put in their lamps. Many will try to enter the kingdom and will be unable. Many a denomination started out down the path to truth and got sidetracked by the devil. You do not have to join with majorities and be side tracked. The shepherd himself is seeking his sheep. This is no pious talk. It is the truth. Every cult spins its tale with pious talk and a spirit of religion. This is a truth you can test and see for yourself to be fact. The Pharisees thought they had all the truth, and so they rejected YAHUSHA. Do not fall into the trap of depending on the authority of men or on your tradition. Seek the truth and find out the historical facts.
You owe it to yourself to love Messiah and seek the true and correct facts of the Impalement and resurrection (cf. John 15:10). He is waiting to forgive everyone who puts their trust in Him. He also wants us to obey him.
Remember how I said that the gospel and the Torah are united in the events of YAHUSHA’s death and resurrection? I have not even told half the story yet. The gospel did not bring with it a replacement righteousness to replace YAHUAH’s desired response: our obedience.
In the Besorah (good news), we learn that YHAUSHA paid the price for our sin. He took the penalty and paid it. The divine justice was satisfied. But the Besorah (good news) is not against YAHUAH’s laws. Many Christians might think it is because they have been taught to think about “Justified by faith” the wrong way. “Justified by Faith” they are taught means that YAHUAH considers them perfectly righteous simply because they believe. That, O reader, is not the truth.
A person is only righteous when they ARE righteous. We approach the Impalement with empty hands, admitting we are sinners. We are forgiven, and pardoned of our sins. We are not acquitted. YAHUAH does not send us out of his court telling us that we never did anything wrong and that he thinks we never did anything wrong. That’s why we receive a pardon, and not an acquittal. If you understand this distinction, then you will understand why Paul really taught that YAHUAH’s “justice was satisfied by the faithfulness of Messiah” and not “justified by faith” in the way that Calvin and Luther misunderstood it.
The original meaning of “justified by faith” is “justice is done by the faithfulness of Messiah” (Gal. 2:16). The faithfulness of Messiah is his obedience to the tree. And it is HIS faithfulness. It is NOT our belief/faith that “does the justice”. Our belief/faith does not get counted as perfect righteousness. That is a false anti-Torah gospel. No one becomes perfect until YAHUSHA transforms them, and that is not finished until He returns.
I know this is a hard teaching for many, but it is true, and I would be neglecting my duty to leave it out. If you want to be righteous, or be considered righteous, then you have to obey YAHUAH. I’m sure many will be turned off by this, and will go away, but that is what they did to YAHUSHA too! If you want to live, then you have to partake of YAUSHA’s life of righteousness. You cannot get it from Calvin or Luther’s doctrine.
I have already shown you that the Church has made their own translation of the Scriptures, according to the perversions of their hearts. If you value you life, you will seek the truth.
Here is the patience of the qodeshiym: here are they that guard the commandments of YAHUAH, and the belief of YAHUSHA.
