[Note: Sabbath Rest; is an Appointed time for the people of Yehawah to assemble to meet with Eloheyem the Father; in the Oneness of His Holy Spirit]

Genesis 15:13-14; Acts 7:6-7; 8; Ex 3:8; 6:6; 12:17; 12:40-41; 42; The Eternal Yehawah Logos predicted the future enslavement of the descendants of Abraham and the appointed time for their Salvation. Yehawah Eloheyem chose Moses to be a spokesman and a witness of the Eternal's power to free the children of Israel from captivity in Egypt. The Eternal instructed Moses in the way to recognize the first month for remembering the appointed assemblies for the nation of Israel. The month of Abib, "is the time when barley is ripening just before the spring equinox" and the sign of a completely dark un-illuminated new moon establishes the first day. On the 10th day of Abib, the Israelites were instructed to select a lamb and care for it until the eve of the 14th Day.
 (It is important to understand that the Eternal established sunset as the designated end of one day and the beginning of a new day. Each new day begins after sunset with the evening twilight continuing until dawn and the daylight hours come to an end at the following sunset.) 
  Exodus 12:1-2; 3; 6-7;8-9; 10-11;12; 13; 22; 23; 24; 46-47; As the sunset on the 13th day the Israelites slaughtered the Passover lamb and placed its blood on their doorpost to protect them from the death Angel that would kill the firstborn in Egypt during the twilight hours of the 14th of Abib. The Israelites were commanded, "do not leave your dwelling until daylight." The Egyptians feared the Eternal Yehawah and gave the Israelites gold and possessions to encourage their departure.
Exodus 12:14-15; 16; The Israelites assembled in orderly family divisions in the Exodus from slavery began after sunset on the 14th day as twilight of the 15th began.
(Nu 33:3) The evening full moon glowed brightly as the host of Israel marched forth like an army with the banner of the Eternal's pillar of fire lifting their hearts like an eagle taking flight.
(Ex 13:20-21; 22; 14:13-14; 23-24; Dt 16:1) The 15th of Abib is forever memorialized as the night of Israel's Exodus from slavery and the Eternal assigned the first commandment as a reminder that there is no other Yehawah Eloheyem that can save.
(Ex 20:2; Isa 45:21)
  Exodus 13:1-2; 3; 6-7; 8-9; 10; The 15th is an appointed assembly and Holy Sabbath that commences a seven day period of unleavened bread and remembers Israel's departure from the sins of idolatrous Egypt. The children of Israel would soon be fed the miraculous unleavened bread from heaven, called manna. Yehawah Eloheyem would enter into a covenant pledge of marriage with the nation of Israel by revealing the spiritual laws of His heart to produce oneness and Holiness in the Israelites. Yehawah our Eloheyem; Yehawah is ONE Spirit of Holiness uniting the hearts and minds of the obedient children of the Eternal.
(Ex 16:4; 17:6; Dt 8:3; Ps 78:15;Neh 9: 20; 1Cor 10:1-2; 3-4; 5; Dt 6:4-5; 6-7; 8-9; Mk 12:29-30; 31)

Passover 
& 7 Days of Unleavened Bread

 Leviticus 23:4-5; 6-7; 8-9; The law given to Moses accurately establishes that the 14th day of the month of Abib begins at evening twilight when the Passover lamb is sacrificed.
(Nu 33:3) The nation of Israel remembers their departure from Egypt on the evening of the 15th by gathering for a twilight (Seder) supper on the first Day of Unleavened bread. Seven days are ordained by the Eternal for eating unleavened bread. The 15th is a High Holy Sabbath and the 21st is also a High Sabbath day of rest for the children of Israel.
(Nu 28:16-17; 18) 
Numbers 9:2-3; 4-5; The Israelites continue to celebrate the Passover and unleavened bread during their 40 years journeyed in the Sinai desert.
Deuteronomy  16:1; 2; 3; Near the end of 40 years of wandering in the desert of sin, Moses would prepare a new generation of Israel before they enter the promised land. Moses instituted the Levitical priestly leadership in the ordained sacrificial ceremonies. The Israelites offered sacrificial lambs on Passover evening at the chosen place for Israel's required assembly before the Eternal's tent of meeting. The Levitical mediators presented offerings prescribed by the law at the appointed times. The original evening Passover sacrifice performed by the Israelites seemed to become combined with the daylight hours of the 14th day of Abib when the ceremonially clean Levites were sacrificing the lambs for the Seder. The Israelites would celebrate the beginning evening of the 15th by feasting on the Seder supper and remembering their departure from enslavement in Egypt. Passover and the 7 days of Unleavened bread blended together as one unified celebration. Unleavened bread was also eaten on the evening of the original Passover as twilight began on the 14th.
(Ex 34:25; Dt 16:4; 5; 6; 7; 8)

Joshua & Promised Land  
(Ge 17:2-3; 4-5; 6-7; 8; 9; 10-11)

Joshua 5:2-3; 4-5; 6-7; 8-9; Yehawah Logos re-instituted the sign of circumcision as a renewal of the Eternal's covenant with Abraham and his descendants. Joshua circumcised the sons of Israel so that Yehawah Logos would restored the Promised Land inheritance.
(Dt 10:11-12; 13-14; 15-16; 30:6-7; 8-9)
Joshua 5:10-11; After Moses' death, Joshua prepared the Israelites before they entered the promised land by celebrating the Passover. That year, the evening of the 14th of Abib began on the weekly Sabbath.
(Lev 23:3; 9-10; 11-12; 14) On the 15th day, the high priest presented a required wave sheaf offering and then the Israelites were allowed to eat the ripened barley from the fields surrounding Jericho. 
Joshua 5:13-14; 15;Yehawah Logos the commander of the Eternal's army appeared to Joshua and ordered the nation of Israel to March 1 time around the city of Jericho on that first day of Unleavened bread.
(Jos 6:2-3; 4-5; 8; 14-15; 16) For 6 days the Levites would blow their trumpets and lead the march around Jericho. On the following 7th day Sabbath; the priests carried the Ark of the covenant before the Israelites as they encircled Jericho 7 times. The Eternal Logos caused the walls of Jericho to collapse when the last trumpet sounded and the Israelites shouted triumphantly. "Yeshua; Yehawah Saves," the Eternal provided a great victory as Israel began to take possession of the promise land.

Forgetfulness & Remembrance

Yehawah Logos was faithful to lead Joshua and the nation of Israel to many victories as they conquered the land of Canaan. The Israelites often forgot their covenant promise and their sinful hearts wandered after other gods in the idolatrous practices of the surrounding pagan nations. The Eternal sent prophets and judges to call the Israelites to repentance and turn them away from sin. Israel prospered when King David obeyed the heart of Yehawah; but Solomon's idolatry divided the nation and led it back into the bondage of sin.
(1 Ki 11:1; 2; 4-5; 6-7; 8-9; 11)
2 Chronicles 30:1; 2; 3-4; 5; 15; 16; 17; 18; 35:17; 18-19;  Temporary revivals of Passover and the days of Unleavened bread occurred during the reign of Hezekiah and Josiah the good Kings of Judah. But; Northern Israel rebelled against the Eternal's commandments and were conquered by their enemies. Later Judah would follow the  disobedience ofIsrael and be led into Babylonian captivity.
(2Ch 36:21; Jer 25:11-12; 29:10)

Mercy Restored

Daniel 9:2; 3; 4-5; For 70 years Daniel lived in Babylonian captivity and patiently waited for the promise time for the rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem.
 ( Da 9:9; 13; 16; 18; 19) Daniel prayed for Yehawah Eloheyem to forgive and redeem His people. 
 (Da 9:21; 24; 25; 26) The Eternal revealed to Daniel that the rebuilding of Jerusalem and the Temple would occur over a 49 year period. Temple worship will be reinstituted and the Levitical priesthood must continue their service another 434 years until the appointed time for the arrival of the anointed Messiah.
Ezra 1:1; 2; 3; 4; 5; The Eternal inspired the king of Persia to authorize the rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem and the freeing of Judah and the Levitical priesthood from captivity in Babylon.

Appointed Holy One
(Jn 14:6)

John 1:1-2; 3-4; 5; The apostle John identifies the Messiah by the title "Logos, which means spokesman or the word." Logos is one member of the Eternal Spirit family named, "Eloheyem or God." The Heavenly Father is the head of the, "Eloheyem" family. There are only two Eternal Spirit beings, "the Father & Son" and together they created everything.
 (Jn 17:24; 25; 26) Messiah Yeshua teaches that eternal life is oneness of spirit with the Heavenly Father. Messiah Yeshua came into the world so that humans might see the light of True Love. When the human heart is darkened by the deceitfulness of sin it does not listen to the True Words of Logos Eloheyem.
(Jn 1:9-10; 11-12; 13-14) Yehawah Logos spoke to Enoch and Noah before the flood. Yehawah Melchizedek Logos approved Abrahams fateful obedience and he would inherit the promised seed, the resurrection of the dead and entrance into the Eternal kingdom of Peace. 
(Mal 1:1-2; 6-7; 2:4-5; 6; 7; 3:1; 2; 3; 5; 6; 7; 8-9; 10; 11-12; 16; 17; 18; 4:4-5; 6) Yehawah Logos entered into a covenant with Moses and the children of Israel by revealing His law of Love. 
(Ge 22:18; Acts 3:25; 26; Ga 3:16; Heb 1:1-2; 3-4; 5; Acts 3:18-19; 20-21; 22) Logos became the promised seed of Abraham that would bless all people that listen to Him. 
(Jn 8:42-43; 44; 45; 46-47) When the appointed time for the arrival of the promised Messiah Logos came, the people did not understand His message of Salvation. 
(Jn 10:14-15; 16-17; 18) Everyone that listens to Logos and keeps His Commandments also Loves the Father and becomes His obedient children. 
(Jn 15:9-10; 11-12; 13-14; 17:1-2; 3; 6-7; 8; 11) A child of the Father is conceived by His Spirit of Holiness; which is the knowledge of His Mercy, Truth and Love that unites a person in the Oneness of Spirit that is Eternal Life in the Eloheyem family.
(Jn 1:17-18) Messiah Yeshua is the Yehawah Logos that wrote His Heavenly Father's 10 Commandments in tablets of stone and gave them to Moses.
(Jn 10: 24-25; 26-27; 28-29; 30; 36-37; 38) Messiah Yeshua entered the world in human flesh so that he might reveal His perfect oneness of Spirit with His Father. 
(Dt 18:15; 18-19; Mt 5:17-18; 19-20) Messiah Yeshua speaks His Father's words of truth that lead mankind into a deeper understanding of the law, required repentance and the Merciful forgiving love that is true Salvation.
(Eph 1:5; 7; 9-10; 13; 14; 1Pet 3:21; 22; 4:1-2; 3; 2Co 10:5-6; 1Co 2:9; 10; 11; 12; 13-14; 15-16; Ro 1:3-4; 5-6; 6:16; 17; 18; 22-23; 7:12; 8:3; 4; 11; 14-15; 16-17; 22; 23; 24-25; 29) The gift of Eternal Life is the Father revealing the knowledge of His "Holy Spirit" in faithful followers uniting them withHis Perfect Son Messiah Yeshua; Because They Listen, Believe and Obey His Teachings and Commandments.
(Jn 14:6-7; 9; 10; 11; Mt 11:25; 26; 27-28; 29-30)
The Israelites believed there was only one Eternal Yehawah Eloheyem. They did not understand that it was Yehawah Logos representing His Father and He had been speaking to mankind from the time of Adam
(Heb 2:1-2; 3; 4; 5-6; 7-8; 9; 10; 11; Php 3:20-21; 1 Co 15:22-23; 24-25; 26-27; 28)

Messiah Yeshua's Passover
(Lk 22: 15; 16-17; 18-19; 20)

John 11:55-56; 57; Lk 22:1-2; Mk 14:1; 2; The customary practice of ceremonial cleansing and the removing of leavening from people's homes occurred before Passover and the days of Unleavened bread. Only unleavened bread would be consumed during the eight-day celebration.
Mk 14:12;Lk 22:1-2;  Mt 26:18-19; 20; On the 13th day of the month of Abib; Messiah Yeshua's disciples prepared the supper before the evening of the 14th of Passover began.
Jn 13:1; 3; 4-5; 12-13; 14-15; 16-17; 20; For 3 1/2 years Messiah Yeshua revealed the Eternal Truth and Love that comes from the Spirit of His Heavenly Father. The Father entrusted His perfect obedient Son; Yeshua with all authority and power to bring Salvation to everyone hoping for His promised appointed time. Yeshua knew He would soon return to His Father. Yeshua desired to leave His disciples with a special remembrance of His Love. Messiah Yeshua began washing the disciples feet as a humble example of His willingness to serve others and assist in cleansing repentant believers and forgiving sin.
 (Ex 19:10-11; 19; 20:1-2; 3-4; 5; 6; 7-8; 9-10; 11-12; 13-16; 17-18; 19-20; Isa 1:16-17; 18-19; Psa 51:1-2; 3-4; 5-6; 7-8; 9-10; 11-12; 13-14; 15-16; 17; Eze 16:4; 5; 6-7; 8; Eph 5: 26-27; Acts 22:14-15; 16; 1 Co 6:9; 10; 11; Titus 3:4-5; 6-7) 
Luke 22:14-15; 16-17; 18-19; 20;  Yeshua transferred new meaning to the Passover supper. The breaking of the unleavened bread would now symbolize the sinless Messiah's broken body as a remembrance of His suffering crucifixion, death and resurrection. The Passover wine would represent a new covenant as if Messiah poured out His life's blood so that repentant believers would be forgiven and cleansed by receiving His Holy Spirit.
(Ex 24:8; Heb 9:19; 20; 21; 22; 8:8; 10; 11; 12-13; 9:9; 10; 15; 23; 24; 25; 26; 12:24; 25; 26)

True  Love Glorifies the Father
(Jn 15:12-13; 14)

John 13:32-33; 34-35; After Passover supper, Messiah Yeshua spoke of His Heavenly Father as the source of True Salvation. Yeshua magnified obedience to the law and His love glorified and reflected the Spiritual character of the Father.
 (Isa 42:21; Mt 5:16-17; 18; 19; 20; 11:25-26; 27; Jn 6:44-45; 46-47; 48-49; 50-51) Yeshua's disciples discipline there lives through faithful obedience to the Eternal's Commandments and the Spirit of the Father reveals the Love of His Son in the hearts of believers.
John 14:6-7;  Messiah Yeshua lives by every word of Yehawah Eloheyem and teaches love that is faithful obedience. 
(Ex 20:6; Dt 4:2; 6:17; 28:9; Mt 19:16-17; 18-19; 1 Ti 6:13-14; 15-16; Jn 10:17-18;Ps 91:14-15; 16; Jn 15:8-9; 10) Only Messiah Yeshua lived a perfect sinless life and was proven to be the (Christ) Holy anointed One by His suffering death and His resurrection to Eternal life. 
(Dt 30:1; 2; Da 7:27; Mt 8:27; Mk 1:27; Acts 2:16-17; 19-20; 21; 22; 23-24; 25-26; 27-28; 30-31; 32-33; 34-35; 36; 38; 39; 3:18-19; 20-21; 22; 5:31-32; Php 2:8; Heb 5:5-6; 7-8; 9-10; Ro 1:4-5; 6:16; 17; 18) Messiah Yeshua leads repentant sinners to a obedient relationship with the Heavenly Father.
John 14:9; 10; 11; The disciples may have pondered the question, "if I obey the law do I have eternal life?" Messiah Yeshua revealed a deeper Spiritual reality of Oneness with the Father. 
(Ro 3:21-22; 23-24; 25; 26; 31; 5:15; 16; 17; 18; 19) Eternal life is a gift of loving kindness (or mercy) that comes from the Holy One who loves us and we receive that gift through Faith. True Salvation is given to repentant believers when the Heavenly Father reveals the Love of His Son in their hearts and minds. 
(Ge 1:26; 27; Ro 5:6-7; 8-9; 10; 11; 8:28; 29; Ga 4:4-5; 6; 1 Jn 3:23-24; Col 1:26-27)  The Father created mortal humans with the purpose of becoming like His Son and He hopefully anticipated their longing to know True Love that is Eternal Life.
John 14:15-16; 17-18; Love is a reciprocal relationship, "if you love me you will keep my commandments." True love is a covenant agreement and a Spiritual union. Messiah Yeshua came to reveal the Holy Spirit of the Father dwelling within him. Salvation is the Father revealing His Spirit to followers of Messiah Yeshua and guiding their hearts and minds into faithful loving obedience to His perfect Son.
John 14:20- 21; The Holy Spirit is not a third person of a Trinity. The Heavenly Father is Spirit and reveals Himself and the knowledge of His Son in the conscience of people that are being drawn to obey spiritual truth.
(2 Co 4:1; 2; 3-4; 5; 6; Jn 4:23-24)
John 14:24-25; 26-27 ; Jn 8:42-43; 44; 45; 46-47; If people do not love Messiah Yeshua they will not follow His teachings or listen to the Spirit of the Father.
John 16:7-8; 9-10; 11-12;  The Heavenly Father is the Consular and Spirit of Truth that convicts sinners of their transgression against His Eternal Commandments. The Father also testifies that His Son is the Holy, Righteous and Sinless Messiah that has ascended into heaven and is seated at His right hand and prepared to judge all of mankind. 
(Ge 3:14; 15; Acts 1:6-7; 3:19-20; 21; Mt 19:28; Ro 16:19; Rev 20:1-2; 4; Isa 9:6; 7; 2:2; 3; 4; 11:1; 2; 3; 4; 5-6; 7-8; 9; 10; 11; 12; 13; Eze 37:11; 12; 13; 14; 19; 21; 22; 23; 24)  The appointed time for judging the world, begins with the removal of Satan's evil spiritual influence by bringing the government of Yehawah Eloheyem the True Messiah to earth. Messiah Yeshua will restore all things by healing the earth, establishing His law, justice, correcting sin, removing disease, and restoring the promised Sabbath rest and appointed assemblies.
(Heb 4:6; 7; 8-9; 10-11; Zec 14:16; 17; 18; 19; Isa 56:6; 7; 8; Mk 11:15; 16; 17)
John 17:26;  Yeshua in the Father promise to continue to be with faithful and obedient believers until the day of Salvation is manifest as the Saints are resurrected at the return of the Messiah.
(1 Co 15:15-16; 17; 20-21; 35; 49-50; 51-52; 53; 54; 55-56; 57-58; Lk 20:35-36; Jn 11:24-25; Php 3:9; 10; 11-12; 13-14; Mk 4:22; Ro 8:17; 18; 19; 20; 21-22; 23; 24; 25; 1 Co 3:13; Ga 3:26-27; 1 Pe 1:3; 4; 5)
John 18:1;  Messiah Yeshua prayed that His disciples would remain in His love. That evening after Passover they walked to the Mount of olives garden belonging to the family of a young man named Mark.

John 18:28; 29; Num 9:10; 11; Mk 7:2-3; 4-5; 6-7; 8-9; The daylight hours of Passover, on the 14th of Abib, may also be designated as a preparation day before the High Holy Sabbath begins at twilight on the first day of Unleavened bread. Ceremonial cleansing is required for the Israelites to participate in the Passover remembrance. So, the Jews gathered outside the house of Pilate and demanded that the Roman governor execute their death sentence upon Yeshua.
John 18:33; 36; 37; 38; 19:6; 7-8; 9-10; 11; 12; Pilate's judicial quandary delineated between the Jews jealous hatred and the fear of condemning an innocent man claiming to be a king and Son of Yehawah Eloheyem (their God).
John 19:13-14; Mt 27:19-20; 21-22; 23-24; 25-26;  At mid-day,  Pontius Pilate tried to wash his hands of responsibility for deliberating the death sentence and the Jews accepted the blood guilt of crucifying their Messiah and King.

Mark 15:32; 33; 34-35;  From 12:00 noon to 3:00; hours of searing pain were eclipsed by moments of Yeshua's compassionate words;  as rays of  light tore at the cloak of darkness that concealed His Father's Love from the eyes of  mankind. 
(1 Ti 6:12; 13; 14-15; 16; Isa 50:3-4; 5-6; 7; 8; 9; 10; 60:1-2; 3; Dt 5:22) The Spirit of the Father spoke powerfully through His Son, "ELOI,Elowahi"; which means EL i have revealed. Yeshua revealed His Oneness of Spirit with Eloheyem the Father.
(Dt 32:15) But; the Jews were abandoning the Elowahi, their Rock and Savior. Messiah Yeshua cried out to the people, "why have you, forsaken me." The Jews thought Messiah Yeshua was crying out to Elijah the prophet for help.

Paul & Passover
(Ro 1:1-2; 3-4; 5)

1Corinthians 1:4-5; 6-7; 8-9; The Heavenly Father revealed His perfect sinless Son so that believers may become like Yeshua in Spiritual Fellowship. 
(1 Co 1:18; 19; 20; 21)  Messiah's obedient sacrificial death on a cross demonstrates faith in His Father's love so that Yeshua followers would learn to trust, obey and not fear death.
(1 Co 1:22-23; Jn 8:25-26; 27-28; 29-30; Acts 17:23; 24; 25; 26; 27-28; 29-30; 31) The Jews would not believe that Yeshua is the Messiah and demanded a sign. The Greeks idolize human philosophy and worshiped god's in their own image, but did not know the True Eternal Yehawah Eloheyem.
(1 Co 1:24-25; Ro 2:4; Jn 8:31-32; 12:28-29; 30-31; 32-33; 34; 3:13-14; 15-16; 18; 19; 20-21; Acts 1:2-3; 6-7; 8-9; 10; 11)  To be called by the Eloheyem family name, a believer must be anointed with the Spirit of Messiah. Yeshua's powerful faith is demonstrated through weakness by humbly suffering injustice to draw people to His loving kindness . The Father and Son revealed their powerful love by offering mercy and redemption to repentant sinners.
(Ps 82:3-4; Mt 26:41; Acts 20:35; Ro 6:19; 8:2; 3; 26; 15:1-2; 3; 4; 1 Co 1:25; 26; 27; 15:12; 17; 20-21; 23-24; 25-26; 27-28; 34-35; 42-43; 44-45; 46-47; 48-49; 2Co 11:29; 12:9; 10; 13:1; 2; 3-4; 9; 1 Th 5:14; Heb 4:15; 5:2; 7:28; Heb 12:4; 5; 6-7; 8; 9; 10-11; 12-13; 14)
(1 Co 2:1-2; 3-4; 5-6; 7-8; 9; 10; 11; 12; 13; 14; 15-16) The Holy Spirit is the Father and Son, sharing their Oneness of heart and mind with faithful obedient believers.
(1 Co 11:23-24; 25-26; 27-28; 29-30; 31-32)  Messiah Yeshua revealed to the apostle Paul a deeper understanding of the appointed Passover remembrance. Paul instructed all believers in the significance of keeping the command is assembly and the appropriate participation in the bread and wine that symbolize Messiah Yeshua's sacrificial offering. The unleavened bread portrays the broken body of a sinless Messiah that was willing to suffer the cruelty of mankind for the purpose of becoming their Savior and turning them all away from sin. Believers must eat of the unleavened bread with a heartfelt conviction to abstain from sinful desires. The wine symbolizes a new covenant sealed with blood so that Messiah's Holy Spirit could be poured out to convict and cleanse believers from their sins.
(1 Co 5:7; 8; 1 Jn 1:5-6; 7-8; 9-10) 
(2 Co 3:6) The Eternal Commandments given to Moses establish righteous judgment that condemns sin. The renewed covenant of Messiah's Spirit empowers believers for fateful obedience that leads to eternal life.
(Jn 5: 39; 6:27; 32-33; 35; 40; 56-57; 12:50; 17:1-2; 3; Ro 6:16; 17; 18; 22-23; Ga 6:8; 1 Ti 6:12; 13; 14-15; 16; Titus 1:2; 1 Jn 1:2; Mt 19:16; 17)
Hebrews  2:14-15; 16; 17; 18;  The Eternal Logos became the promised Messiah by entering into the physical creation through a virgin birth as a fleshly human. Messiah Yeshua obediently overcame Satan's temptation that brings sin and death. Messiah Yeshua revealed the Father's mercy and forgiveness. The way of Atonement would come through the shared participation in the fateful sacrificial offering of the Savior. Messiah Yeshua the perfect high priest would lead repentant sinners into faithful obedience and freedom from fear of death by their hope in the resurrection of the righteous to Eternal Life.
(Heb 4:12; 13) Understanding Salvation requires believing that Messiah Yeshua is the Eternal Logos, "Living Word of Eloheyem." The Heavenly Father examines the heart and mind to see if believers will truly obey His Son's teaching and follow his example.
(Heb 4:14; 15; 16)  Yeshua was proven to be the Messiah by His powerful resurrection to  Eternal Life. Yeshua is seated at His Father's right hand on the throne of grace and is willing to forgive and free people from their captivity to sin.
(Heb 5:7-8; 9-10) Messiah Yeshua faithfully obeyed all His Father's Commandments and always spoke the truth to lead sinners to repentance. Yeshua suffered the cruel injustice of sinful mankind and proved worthy of being recognized as Melchizedek,"the Priest of Eloheyem most High."
(Heb 7:11-12; 13-14; 15-16) The law given to Moses could only identify sin and the animal sacrifices performed by the priestly descendants of Aaron could never cleanse the Hebrews from sin or produce faithful obedience. Yeshua never sinned and His life could not be separated from the Heavenly Father's love. Yeshua remains forever as the Messiah Melchizedek Prints of Peace and only Savior.
(Heb 7:26-27; 28) Yeshua was proven to be Holy, set apart from sin, and appointed as the merciful judge that offers forgiveness to the truly repentant believers.
(Heb 9:8; 9; 10; 11; 12; 13; 14; 15) Once a year, Aaron would offer sacrifice before entering the most Holy place to make Atonement by sprinkling blood on the Ark of the covenant to cleanse the meeting place from the sins of the people. The ceremonial sacrifices and sprinkling of blood could never cleanse the conscience of people from their desire to sin. Messiah Yeshua offered His sinless life as a pure sacrificial lamb and His blood poured out symbolizes the sharing of His Holy Spirit to cleanse repentant believers and stop their sinful behaviors that lead to death. Believers are redeemed by the sprinkling of Yeshua's Holy Spirit Life and they enter into a New Covenant of obedient service to Eloheyem the Father.
(Heb 10:8; 9) Messiah Yeshua put an end to the required animal sacrifices and He established His example of obedience as the new and living way for believers to make their life a living sacrifice pleasing and acceptable to the Father.
(Heb10:14-15; 16-17)   Messiah Yeshua's perfect Oneness of Spirit with the Father is revealed to repentant believers so that they may participate in True Holiness. The New Covenant permanently writes the Eternal's laws on the heart and in the mind of faithful believers. Past sins and Wallace acts are forgiven when obedience is perfected from the heart.

Acts 3:22-23; 24-25; 26; 1Pe 1:10; 11; 12;  Messiah Yeshua is the Yehawah Logos who has been speaking to mankind since the time of Adam. Messiah Yeshua is the promised seed of the woman that will crush the head of Satan and remove sin and lawlessness from mankind. 
(Ge 3:14; 15; Ro 16:19-20; Acts 26:18; Re 12:9; 1 Jn 3:4-5; 6-7; 8; 9; 10-11; 12; Ge 22:18; Ga 3:16; 7-8; Mt 12:25-26; 27-28; 29; Re 20:1-2)

Law, Truth & Salvation
(Psa 91:11-12; Mt 4:7)

Matthew 5:17; 18; 19; 20;  Messiah Yeshua did not abolish his laws, but he became a living example of perfect obedience. Yeshua magnified the law by revealing His deeper understanding and Love of Truth.

Messiah Yeshua confronted the Jews hypocrisy and said that their hearts were far from true obedience to Yehawah Eloheyem. Ceremonial washing does not purify the heart from sinful desires or deceitful attitudes. Yeshua said that eating bread with unwashed hands may allow dirt to enter the body and then be eliminated. Yeshua did not put an end to the law of Moses that prohibits the eating of unclean animals. Yeshua identified sin as a deeper spiritual uncleanness of the heart.
(Mk 7:18-19; 20-21; 22-23; Isa 65:1; 2; 3; 4; 5; 6; 66:16; 17)

Matthew 12:1; 2; 3-4; 5-6; 7-8; 9-10; 11-12;  Jewish religious leaders added burdensome regulations to the Sabbath observance and refused to lift a finger to help the poor and needy. The Jews condemned Yeshua as a Sabbath lawbreaker, because He healed the sick on the Sabbath day. Yeshua said that it is lawful to do good works on the Sabbath and the Jews hated the Messiah and plotted to kill Him.
 (Jn 5:16-17; 18; Mt 22:41-42; 43-44; 45-46; 23:1-2; 3-4; 5-6; 7-8; 9-10; 11-12; 13; 14; 15; 23; 24; 25-26; 27; 28; 37; 39; 16:6; 11)

The sign of circumcision and cleansing baptism were practiced by Jewish religious leaders, but they did not obey from a heart of love.
Colossians 2:14; The sinless Messiah's unjust crucifixion is a testimonial witness against everyone that rejects Yeshua's offering of forgiveness and salvation to the truly repentant.

(Mt 15:6-7; 8-9; Isa 29:13-14)
Messiah Yeshua's Commandments and teachings are the correct way to obey the law; with proper respect for cleanliness and unclean food laws; new moon and Sabbath assemblies. The law given to Moses looks forward to the government of Yehawah Eloheyem the Father and the restoration of all things that will occur at the appointed time of Messiah's return.
 (Jn 8:28-29; 30-31; 32)
Isaiah 42:18-19; 20-21;  Messiah Yeshua was not persuaded by Jewish religious leaders false piety or the social practices of human philosophies and traditions.

(1Cor 2:11; 12; 13; 14; 15; 16)
You know Him; because beside you (He) stays and in you (He) will be."
 (1Jn 3:24)
John 14:18-19; 20-21;  Messiah Yeshua promised to unite His disciples with the Heavenly Father so that they would not remain orphans. Yeshua ascended into heaven where unbelieving mankind cannot see Him or perceive the presence of the Father's Holy Spirit. Yeshua lives forever and has revealed the only way to Eternal Life is Oneness of Spirit with the Father. True Love is a covenant agreement of the heart in believers that obediently keep the eternal Commandments. Yeshua's disciples perceive the unity of Spirit that is the Holy sanctuary and appointed meeting place with the Father of Eternal Life.
John 5:37-38; 39-40; The Jews thought they knew the One True Yehawah Eloheyem. Eloheyen is a family name that describes the Oneness of Spirit with the Father of Righteousness and Yehawah Logos is the Eternal Son that has been speaking to mankind from the beginning.

John 6:44-45; 46;  The Heavenly Father is invisible Spirit and He examines the heart and mind of humans and test their thoughts to see if they will listen to Him and love Truth. Messiah Yeshua speaks His Father's words of Truth and the Father draws people to His Son.

Bread of Life
(Mt 4:3; Dt 8:3; 5-6)

John 6:47-48; 49-50; 51;  Unleavened bread symbolizes the Exodus from sin and Messiah Yeshua's body represents the heavenly Manna that feeds believers on their journey to the promised, "Kingdom." The Jewish Seder celebrate traditions that look to the past remembrances of Yehawah glorious work of saving the children of Israel. Messiah Yeshua's disciples are fed the sinless bread of life that is a new and living covenant that looks forward with a hope in the resurrection to immortality.
John 6:52-53; 54-55; 56-57; 58;  Messiah Yeshua use the symbol of His flesh as an example of food that nourishes and gives life. Yeshua did not teach cannibalism. Yeshua meant that His life of obedience to the Heavenly Father is nourishing like food.  Yeshua's words of truth are His life's blood and come from His heart of True Love. To abide in Yeshua's love is a covenant agreement to follow His example and keep His Commandments that lead to Eternal Life with the Father.
John 6:63- 64; 65; Messiah Yeshua explained that His use of symbolism is an attempt at explaining Spiritual Truth that can only be understood with the help of the Heavenly Father. The symbols of bread and wine are only meant to remind followers of Yeshua's physical suffering cruel crucifixion and the pouring out of His life's blood for the cleansing and forgiveness of sin. Eating the Passover bread and wine is a required act of remembrance that honors the Savior Yeshua; but it does not save.
Acts 2:38; 39; Everyone must repent of there sinful disobedience and be baptized into Messiah's death as a commitment of putting to death the sinful nature with the help of the Holy Spirit of Yeshua that comes from the Father.

Oneness of Spirit with the Father is Holiness
(1 Co 6:17; 19; 20)

 1 Peter 1:15-16; 17; 18; 19-20; 21-22; 23; Lev 19:2; 20:7; The word Holy reveals awareness of a Spiritual sanctuary and meeting place where a worshiper encounters the Father through prayerful consideration of His Word. Messiah Yeshua is Logos the Living Word Yehawah of Eloheyem. Messiah Yeshua speaks the words of Truth that instruct worshipers of the Heavenly Father in the way of faithful obedience. True Love is freedom to serve the Father without fear of death. The hope of Eternal Life belongs to everyone that is led by the Spirit of Messiah Yeshua.
(Mt 19:17; 18; 19; Lk 10:25-26; 27-28; Jn 5:19; 20; 21-22; 23; 24 39-40; 6:27)

Messiah Yeshua was praying to His Father in the quiet shadows of the night. When Yeshua responded to Mary's weeping; He said, "I have not yet ascended to the Father." Messiah Yeshua would fulfill the wave sheaf offering of first fruits. As the sun arose on the first day of the week Messiah Yeshua ascended to the Heavenly thrown of the Father and returned to His Eternal Glory as the Holy Lamb who was slain.
