Commemoration of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ

18 Nisan 5771 / 3rd Day of the Omer

Published on 22 April 2011

God's plans were made before the "foundations of the earth" were laid, and the great debates about the birth of Jesus Christ, will no doubt continue, but without controversy had Emmanuel, the Messiah, never been born, mankind would be without hope, and "without God," in this world!

Ephesians 2:11-13 "Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; that at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ."

Regardless of the conflicts surrounding when Jesus Christ was actually born, there is absolutely no doubt as to when He was crucified by the Romans, since God's Word clearly reveals that He gave His life during Passover.

On the night before Jesus died, He asked His disciples to remember Him and His great sacrifice when they partake of the Passover meal, but most "Christians" are not taught to commemorate this important Holy Day.

I Corinthians 11:23-32 "For I have received of the LORD that which also I delivered unto you, That the LORD Jesus the same night in which He was betrayed took bread: and when He had given thanks, He brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is My body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of Me.

After the same manner also He took the cup, when He had supped, saying, This cup is the New Testament in My blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of Me.

For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, [of Passover] ye do shew the LORD'S death till He come.

Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the LORD unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the LORD.

But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the LORD’S body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep (or have died).

For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. But when we are judged, we are chastened of the LORD, that we should not be condemned with the world."

Contrary to what "the Church" established so long ago, the commemoration of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, is NOT contingent upon the first day of the week (Sunday), or by the timing of the moon, but Jesus rose from the grave three days and three nights after His death at Passover.

The traditions of the Roman Catholic Church actually undermines the very foundation of the Christian faith by replacing the blessed event of the Resurrection of our LORD, with their own "holy days," and have thus made "the word of God of none effect" to "the faithful" followers of their doctrines.

Catholicism espouses many teachings opposed to the Holy Scriptures, and it has affected all of Christendom; and sadly, Christians throughout history, and even today, blindly follow after the doctrines and ordinances that were setup by Rome even though they absolutely defy God's Word!

Not only does the Catholic hierarchy exalt their beliefs and traditions above the Word of God, but they shunned the observance of the Biblical Holy days from the very beginning, unto this day. The "Roman Church" has cursed, persecuted, and in some cases have even murdered those who sought to honor God's Word, rather than comply with their unbiblical requirements!

The Holy Days that God has directed His people to remember have great eternal significance, and they all center around Jesus Christ, the Messiah, the Holy One who God sent into this world to save our souls.

Satan knows all of this, which is why the Wicked One has tried so hard to devalue, defile, or diminish God's Word altogether; and corrupt per-versions and paraphrases of the Bible, such as The Message which has been highly promoted by "The Purpose Driven Church," is evidence of that fact.

I used to believe, like most unsuspecting people, that Roman Catholicism was just another Christian denomination, but several years ago I came to realize that I was wrong in that belief. And due to the great Apostasy of this present Age, people are so blind to the Truth, and are becoming more accepting of the Catholic Church, despite all of the "clergy abuse scandals" that are continually being reported by the media.

As a child growing up in the Roman Catholic Church, it really bothered me when other kids would accuse me of worshipping Mary, and even though I never did, I have since discovered that the hierarchy of the Catholic Church does indeed advocate and participate in this idolatrous practice.

Actually, I had good memories of my time in Catholic grade school, and going to Mass every day, and singing in the choir; and even when my family and I quit going to the Catholic Church over twenty four years ago, it was not because I saw the evil behind their teachings and practices--its just that it was getting too hard, with three little girls under four years of age, to go to Mass and go to the Baptist Church every Sunday.

When I told the priest that my Husband and I decided that we would only be attending the Baptist Church, he was really taken aback, but I believe he sensed my sincerity and he didn't try to talk me out of it. I did not realize it back then but the leaders of the Roman Catholic Church deem all other churches as apostate or counterfeit, and contend that they are the only “true Church,” and everyone else needs to fall back under the authority of the “mother church,” and the Bishop of Rome-the Pope.

Christ’s Mass Dismissal,” goes into detail regarding the false teachings of Roman Catholic Church, and will show the significance of God's Holy Days and reveal how the Roman Church has tainted the "True" Church.

2 Timothy 2:19-26 Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The LORD knoweth them that are His. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honour, and some to dishonour.

If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the Master's use, and prepared unto every good work.

Flee also youthful lusts: but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace, with them that call on the LORD out of a pure heart.

But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes. And the servant of the LORD must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, in meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the Truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the Devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.”

Jesus came to take away our sin and the power of the Devil over our lives, but if a person willfully sins after they make a commitment to follow Christ, regardless of whether they acknowledge their actions as sinful, their heart will become more and more darkened and they will remain in Satan’s trap and under his evil influence as he leads them further into the Darkness, with the ultimate objective of leading many to Hell.

Jesus Christ did not give His life in vain, and I cannot emphasize enough as to the great danger of walking in sin, not only due to its blinding affect, but because of the horrifying consequences for those who just dismiss God, and disregard His Word, especially those who claim to be Christians.

2 Thessalonians 1:6-10 "Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you; And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the LORD Jesus shall be revealed from Heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the Gospel of our LORD Jesus Christ:

Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the LORD, and from the glory of His power; When He shall come to be glorified in His saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our Testimony among you was believed) in that day."

God will hold all men accountable as to how we respond to His beloved Son and His Holy Word, and He is the only One who can show us the Truth about our sinful state so that we can SEE our great need for repentance, which is why we desperately NEED THE LORD in our lives!

It is only through a genuine relationship with God, by faith in Jesus Christ, that we stand a chance against Satan, and I pray for God's mercy to be upon those who truly love Him, but are held captive by the Devil.

"Ministers" of Satan have been targeting my loved ones for some time now, and are purposefully leading them away from God, just as he tried with me, but praise God He saw fit to deliver me from the Devil's trap.

Moreover, they have been greatly led astray by “friends” and relatives who apparently do not understand the real dangers of sin, and the evil influence that the Devil can have over our lives, and I have had continual sorrow in my heart ever since my children openly turned away from the Truth.

For those who are wiling, please pray for my beloved family, especially my “adult children” who are still in the Devil’s trap. They don't believe it though, and they think I Am the one who needs to get "right with God."

My children are "good" people, but according to God's Word, goodness is not what it takes to get to Heaven! And I pray they will come back to God, and seek to live a life that is pleasing to Him, in holiness and purity.

It is only by the Righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, that we can be Godly, and thus have a genuine love for God and His Word, which is what God requires in order to have a place in His Kingdom. 

 

 "And without controversy great is the mystery of Godliness:

God was manifest in the flesh,

justified in the Spirit,

seen of angels,

preached unto the Gentiles,

believed on in the world,

received up into glory."

1 Timothy 3:16

 

Jesus IS COMING BACK in Judgment, and He will be a "swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the stranger from his right, and fear not Me, saith the LORD of hosts."

I will continue to have hope for my beloved children, and it is my most earnest prayer that all of us--the true saints of God--will stand before Him unashamed on "the Great and Dreadful Day of the LORD!"

 

 "Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto Him that sitteth

upon the Throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. Amen!"

Blessed are they who are called to HIS Supper!

And may we be among that number

on that Resurrection Day!

Amen!
