The Teacher is Calling for You...



"I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?"  John 11:25-26

This post was originally made on Tuesday March 26, 2013 but I am putting it back front and center as Passover 2014 is just ahead on God's calendar.

In the beginning, the Ruach gave life to Adam as he arose from the dust. Almost 2,000 years the Ruach gave life to Yeshua in the tomb as He arose. Messiah Yeshua's resurrection was the Feast Day of First Fruits, the 3rd day that followed after the crucifixion.

Fifty days later at Pentecost, that same Spirit gave the gift of speech in many languages (tongues) so the disciples of The Teacher could spread the word of His Gospel to all nations at Shavuot.

In the end, that same Spirit will restore life as it once was in Eden with the ultimate gift of resurrection from dust into eternal transformed life near our Creator God.

He is calling for you now...

Because of the miracle of God's power, one day in the future, the children of God can gather before Him and receive the eternal gift of His Spirit, the Ruach, the wind and breath of God to share in the resurrection life of Messiah.

Here's "the" Passover account of Yeshua of Natzeret from two witnesses as they drank from His cup of Redemption:
"Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must be killed.

And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat. And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare?

And he said unto them, Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you, bearing a pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he entereth in. And ye shall say unto the goodman of the house, The Master saith unto thee, Where is the guest chamber, where I shall eat the passover with my disciples?

And he shall shew you a large upper room furnished: there make ready.  And they went, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the passover.;

And when the hour was come, he sat down, and the twelve apostles with him. And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer: For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.

And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide [it] among yourselves:  For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come. And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake [it], and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.

Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup [is] the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you."  Luke 22:7-20
Passover is the promise of a new life of redemption, whether for ancient Israel enslaved by Pharaoh, and for all captured and enslaved to sin. It is an incredible gift that God gives to us, and it all begins with the Passover. Yeshua is the Passover Lamb of God that our salvation, our restoration to God can be accomplished.

"In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first [day] of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.

His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead [men]. And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Yeshua, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you. And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.

And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Yeshua met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshiped him. Then said Yeshua unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.

Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests all the things that were done. And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers, Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him [away] while we slept.

And if this come to the governor's ears, we will persuade him, and secure you. So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.

Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Yeshua had appointed them. And when they saw him, they worshiped him: but some doubted.

And Yeshua came and spoke unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, [even] unto the end of the world." Amen. Matthew 28:1-20
