Passover and The Scarlet Thread of Redemption

Yahusha Teaches The Narrow Gate


Matthew 7
13 “Enter (into The Kingdom) through the narrow gate (of Passover). For wide is the gate (Easter) and broad is the road (The Way of the Gentiles) that leads to destruction (eating swine flesh as a sacrice on Isthar Day Isaiah 66), and many (filled with The Spirit of the False Messiah/Incarnation) enter through it. 14 But small is the gate (in covenant with a Mediator) and narrow the road that leads to life (this is Eternal life, that they know You, the only true God John 17:3), and only a few find it.

The “gate” that leads us out of bondage of sin and into the promised land of Eternal life is (and always has been) the Passover. Yahusha speaks of this very same narrow gate as he illustrates (through use of The Mystery Language) that he is the Passover Lamb, and we all must follow his example on Passover. We are not just sit back and enjoy a Paganized Seder or even worse a Pig on Ishtar Day (Easter).

The Narrow Gate is literally “how” we keep Passover. Yahusha is the Shepherd of all the Passover Lambs of Yahuah, and he led the way through the Narrow Gate on Passover:

John 10:11The Good Shepherd and his sheep who enter through Passover
1 “Very truly I tell you Pharisees, anyone who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate (Passover), but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber. 2 The one who enters by the gate  (Passover) is the Shepherd of the (rest of the) sheep. 3 The Gatekeeper (Yahuah) opens the gate for him (the Shepherd Yahusha who leads us out of a life of bondage into a new life of freedom from sin by his Passover sacrifice), and the sheep (we too, are lambs of Yahuah) listen to his (Yahusha’s) voice (example). He calls his own sheep (Passover Lambs  Exodus 12:1-3) by name and leads them out (of this life of bondagte and into The Kingdom of Yahuah through Passover). 4 When he (the Shepherd) has brought out all his own (Lambs), he goes on ahead of them (offering his life as a living sacrifice and suffering at the stake on Passover), and his sheep follow him (in the Passover example he set by offering their own lives each Passover) because they know his voice (John 13:15). 5 But they will never follow a stranger (incarnated demi-gods); in fact, they will run away from him (any “Messiah” who claims to be “God in the flesh") because they do not recognize a stranger’s voice.” 6 Yahusha used this figure of speech (Mystery Language Alert!), but the Pharisees did not understand what he was telling them (1 Cor. 1:23). 7 Therefore Yahusha said again, “Very truly I tell you, I am (my example is) the gate (the Passover Lamb and true and living way to follow) for the (rest of the) sheep (lambs of Yahuah). 8 All who have come before me (claiming to be the incarnation of “God”) are thieves and robbers (robbing Yahuah of His Immortality and Glory as Creator), but the (true) sheep have not listened to them. 9 I am the Gate (the Passover Lamb and the Way or the example to follow); whoever enters through me (follows my reverent submissive example on Passover) will be saved (from 'the angel of death'. Yahuah will save them as He did Yahusha Hebrews 5:7-11 the meaning of Passover). They will come in (by following Yahusha’s example of living sacrifice on Passover) and go out (into The Kingdom of Yahuah), and find pasture. 10 The thief (Jesus Christ) comes only to steal and kill and destroy (by abolishing Passover for Easter); I have come (to set the example and show the way i.e. Shepherd) that they may have (Eternal) life (by following my example), and have it to the full.  11 “I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd lays down his life (it is not a human sacrifice, Yahusha willingly gave his life to save his brothers John 15:13 as a living sacrifice on Passover) for the sheep (to follow as an example, as he Shepherds us through the gate, we are all Passover Lambs).

Sha’ul Teaches the Narrow Gate


1 Corinthians 1the Passover is The Point and it is VERY NARROW
20 Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not Yahuah made foolish the wisdom (human traditions) of this world? 21 For since, in the Wisdom of Yahuah, the world (the Roman Empire) through wisdom (human philosphy) did not know Yahuah, it pleased Yahuah through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. 22 For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom (through philosophy); 23 but we preach the Passover sacrifice of Yahusha (THAT… is the way that leads to The Kingdom of Yahuah), to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness.

We see Sha’ul do just what he claimed; teach the Passover sacrifice of Yahusha below:

Hebrews 5Yahusha demonstrates Circumcision of Heart
7 During the days of Yahusha’s (human) life on Earth (while he offered himself as a LIVING sacrifice), he offered up prayers and petitions (in the Garden of Gethsemane) with fervent cries and tears to the one God (Shema! Yahuah) who could save him from death (that evening on Passover because he was not a god), and he (Yahusha) was heard (by Yahuah and saved from death) because of his reverent submission (to the will of Yahuah per Zechariah Chapter 3, which is true sacrifice. Not because he was God, but because he was obedient and had a circumcised heart).

 

1 Samuel 15:22
But Samuel replied: "Does Yahuah delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying Yahuah (CIRCUMZISION: obedience is the Spiritual attitude of our hearts)? To obey (Spiritual sacrifice) is better than (physical) sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams (this type of dying to self and living an obedient submissive life is the example Yahusha set).
Psalm 51
16 For you do not desire sacrifice; else would I give it: you do not delight in burnt offering.17 The (true Spiritual) sacrifices of Yahuah are a broken Spirit: a broken and a contrite (CIRCUMCIZED) heart, O Yahuah, you will not despise.

Continuing with Hebrews 5

8 son (of Yahuah) though he was (not Yahuah), he learned obedience (to Yahuah the same way we all do) from what he suffered (ultimately death to “self” and suffering on Passover) 9 and, once made perfect (after his final Passover suffering on the torture stake), he (his example) became (after his suffering on the stake) the source of Eternal Salvation (The fulfillment of the Passover Lamb) for all who obey him (and follow his example and offer themselves as living sacrificial lambs on Passover) 10 and was designated by Yahuah to be High Priest in the order of Melchizedek (the Eternal High Priest, Zechariah. 3, who would rip the Veil and provide “once for all the sons of Yahuah” access to the Mercy Seat to come near and offer themselves as living sacrificial lambs Romans 12:1).11 We have much to say about this, but it is hard to make it clear to you because you no longer try to understand (1 Cor. 1:23)

Again, Peter is telling us the Passover that Sha’ul preached (which was a stumbling block to the Jews and foolishness to the Greeks), was TWISTED by the Jews  (Seder) and Greeks (Easter). This is why it is The NARROW GATE. We see the Apostle Sha’ul encourage us to keep The Feast of Unleavened Bread (when the Passover Lamb was eaten) in keeping with the physical to Spiritual parallels it was intended.

1 Corinthians 5
Get rid of the old yeast, so that you may be a new unleavened batch (after offering yourselves as living sacrifices on Passover) —as you really are (destined to become.  The 7-day Feast of Unleavened Bread is a shadow of the Millennial Kingdom).  For Yahusha, our Passover Lamb, has been sacrificed (as our example and to tear the veil that we may enter and make our own Passover offerings of our lives as living sacrificial lambs). Therefore let us keep the Festival (of Unleavened Bread), not with the old bread (eaten on the eve of the 14th of Abib during the Chagigah meal representing the old body of flesh) leavened with malice and wickedness, but with the (hope of the heavenly resurrected body of) unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

Sha’ul continues to teach The Way of Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering in Colossians:

Colossians 2 – IN CONTEXT OF ALL PAUL’S WRITINGS
8 See to it that no one (Greek Christian) takes you captive through philosophy (pagan ‘Logos’ for example) and empty deception (sound bite implied doctrine), according to the (pagan) tradition of men, according to the elementary principles (false spirits i.e. The Spirit of Error) of the world, rather than according to The Yahushaic Covenant. 9 For in (covenant with) Yahusha all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form (in our bodies), 10 and in The Yahushaic Covenant you have been made complete (in fullness of Deity Ephesians 3:9), and Yahusha is the head over all rule and authority (as the first born son of Yahuah through inheritance);

************* Circumcision ******************

11 and in The Yahushaic Covenant you were also circumcised (in your heart) with a circumcision made without hands (Paul is teaching the transposition of The Law into the Spirit), in the removal of the body of the flesh (carnal mindset) by the circumcision of the same Spirit of Holiness (righteous keeping of The Law) that is in (covenant with) the Messiah;

************** Mikveh ************************

12 having been buried with Yahusha in Mikveh, in which you were also raised up (in covenant) with Yahusha through faith in the working of Yahuah, who raised Yahusha from the dead (Paul is saying we have been given the Spirit of Holiness which is the power of Yahuah that raised Yahusha).

********** Offering/blood************************

13 When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh (carnal mindset), Yahuah made you alive together with Yahusha, (and Yahuah through Mikveh) having forgiven us all our transgressions (by the blood of the Passover Lamb OFFERING), 14 (Yahuah) having canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of (His judicial) decrees against us (Death Decrees found in The Law), which was hostile to us (because we transgressed His Commands and Ordinances); and Yahuah has taken the death decrees in The Law out of the way, having nailed those death decrees to the cross (with Yahusha and forgiven our sin). 15 When Yahusha had disarmed the rulers and authorities (by dying innocent), Yahusha made a public display of them (defeating The Law of Sin and Death), having triumphed over them through (the power of) Yahuah (who raised Yahusha from the grave).
