4/25/05 From YahuShua HaMashiach, Our Lord and Savior
The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy
For Timothy, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
(Regarding Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread)
Listen and have understanding, for thus says The Lord your Redeemer: Only those who truly believe keep the Passover. To them it is a memorial, a time of reflection and the giving of thanks, a Sabbath.
Therefore, Timothy, do not your own pleasure on the Holy Days or on the Sabbath. Rather do that which pleases The Lord your God. Keep the feasts holy, and cause your life to follow suit; unleaven your heart. Discern what is most needful, and when in doubt, ask.
And concerning the rites and ceremonial symbols of the feasts, consider their meaning and rejoice in their fulfillment, for it is accomplished. Do not agonize over the details, nor stumble over the letter. And concerning that which you partake of for the body, it is of little consequence. Rather feast upon that which sustains your soul. Remember Me and My Passion, as I have shown you; offer up thanksgiving, and consider your salvation and The Loving Mercy of God. For the intent of one’s heart speaks volumes more than the offering put forth by their hands.
Yet I tell you the truth, many will there be who enter The Kingdom of Heaven, who did not keep the feasts of The Lord. And many will there be left standing outside the gates, who kept the feasts of The Lord. For those without the gate retain their sin, for they hold fast to malice and have not yet departed from wickedness. Yet the hearts of the first election are filled with compassion and a sincere desire to walk in My ways, having called upon My name in sincerity and in truth, as they bring forth new works meet for repentance. For where there are righteous works, there are also those who seek to spoil them for the sake of pride and envy. And where there is pure knowledge, there are also those who defile it among women. Take heed, therefore, and remember My teaching: Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the Sadducees. For their like still exists today; only their names and vesture have changed.
Yet the ignorance of the meek is no cause for offense,
Nor shall the error of the humble bring forth rebuke;
For I know the heart and look upon the innermost intentions...
Therefore keep the feast, not with the old leaven,
Nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness,
But with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth,
As it is written in accordance with the New Covenant...
Says The Lord.
