Are the Dead?
Frances Healan, Jerry Healan
We have chosen the current cover
in order to highlight and focus on our article entitled “Where Are The
Dead?” Man has long believed that death is the separation of body and soul,
not understanding exactly what the soul really is. We hope that the article will
inform you concerning the truth as to the state of the dead.

inquiries please write to YEA, P. O. Box 31, Atlanta, TX 75551.
Recently a man wrote to us condemning us for our lack of
prophetic powers. He and others have written to us time and time again
castigating us for not being followers of a certain element located in Abilene,
Texas. Supposedly that is where the true end-time work is being done by the true
end-time prophet and messiah.
One thing that we have learned in our history of dealing with various
works and individuals is that so many of the leaders desire to be prophets and
have prophetic powers. My wife and I were members of a work whose pastor general
had continually pointed to nineteen year time cycles that his ministry had
endured. The nineteen year time cycle that ended with 1972 was to be the
beginning of the great tribulation. We were to be taken by aircraft to the
Middle-East to a place named Petra where we were to watch as the end-time armies
gathered against Jerusalem. When it didn’t happen, it was explained to the
dumb, faithful sheep that a ten year mistake had been made and 1982 instead of
1972 was the up-coming dreadful date. When that didn’t occur, this author and
wife still endured another six years as a part of that group until he was
forcefully ejected for questioning some of that group’s doctrines. What a
travesty! This author believed in that group and its work so much that he
couldn’t bring himself to leave it and Yahweh had him banished from the group
by its very leaders whom he had been
What about William Miller? He had the whole country in great fear of the
end-time activities that were to culminate in 1844. Didn’t happen, but many of
the group that followed him continued to do so in spite of his false warning,
and they are still around today, making excuses for something that was
prophesied, but didn’t take place.
In the early to mid 1990’s another man from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma,
was going about the country proclaiming that the Savior was going to return at
Passover around 1993 or 1994. The Lord (his lord, by the way) continued to tell
this man these things and he stuck his neck out and proclaimed that if these
things didn’t occur then he was a false prophet. He further stated that if it
didn’t happen that he was going to shut down his ministry and go do something
else. But, lo and behold, it didn’t take place, he is exactly what he said he
would be (a false prophet), and he still has his ministry going today. I think
that he is in the process of proclaiming that the book of Hebrews is not viable
and should not have been included in the New Testament.
I recently came across a letter from an inmate that used to meet with us
on the Coffield Unit at Tennessee Colony, Texas. I try to go there on the first
Sabbath of each month to hold meetings with the men there. This man was
transferred to another facility and having come across and become influenced by
the group in Abilene, he wrote me a letter telling me to mark the date September
12, 2006. That was the date that the ring-leader of the group in Abilene had
prophesied that the final Nuclear war was going to begin. He didn’t just
proclaim it to his group there in Abilene, but also broadcast it on the airwaves
of radio and maybe television. It didn’t happen!!! When it didn’t happen,
this great prophet dreamed up the excuse that it was like an embryo and the
event would take place nine months later. Hello people! When are you going to
wake up, search the Scriptures out and believe what they say?!!!
Here is what the Scriptures say about such a false prophet, “I will
raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put
my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command
him. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words
which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him. But the prophet, which shall presume to speak
a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak
in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.
And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which Yahweh hath not
spoken? When a prophet speaketh in the name of
Yahweh, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which
Yahweh hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou
shalt not be afraid of him,” Dt. 18:18-22.
The Prophet that we were to listen to, of course, was Yahshua the
Messiah. But do you get this? These other men have prophesied things “in the
name of the Lord, or Yahweh!” Those things didn’t come to pass! What does
Yahweh’s word say is going to happen to them?
On the other hand, I want to
reproduce what this author wrote in our YEA Newsletter of Mar.—Apr. 2004
(that’s before we began to publish this magazine), “The printing of our money was placed in the
hands of the U.S. government by the Constitution. However, President Woodrow
Wilson and the Congress sold out this right to the international bankers in
1913. They were given the right to create our money by fiat, out of thin air, by
simply printing it and then loaning it to us at interest.
bankers withheld money bringing about the so-called Great Depression. This Great
Depression caused President Franklin Delano Roosevelt to declare the U.S. to be
bankrupt. He tendered a “New Deal,” which, of course, the real terms were
covered up. But in this “New Deal,” the bankers would own the U.S. lock,
stock and barrel, so to speak. In other words, the land, people, property,
everything, in reality, belongs to the international bankers.
This is why our
armed forces are able to be shipped into hotspots like the Balkans, Afghanistan,
Iraq and other places at the behest of the international bankers. Our military
forces are now mercenaries for them.
Much ado is
being made about the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens coming across our
borders. Our military is sent into other areas of the world to fight other’s
battles, while they are not allowed to protect the country’s borders.
Why is so much
of our industry being shut down and sent out of the country? Why has President
Bush brokered a deal to outsource jobs to India? Why has he threatened to veto
any bill submitted by congress to overturn the sale of operations management of
the ports to the UAE? It’s because he has to do the bidding of the masters.
Any threat of the Congress to thwart the sale of the operations to the UAE
is just posturing. They all know that the sale has to go through whether openly
or under the table. You see, it is because of their own spending sprees and
desire for campaign contributions that they are willing to also sell the U.S.
This author has
long understood that the name “Bush” has important meaning. Long ago, it was
learned that the name “Bush” is exactly like the Hebrew word “buwsh.”
This Hebrew word is defined as; a
primitive root; properly, to pale, i.e. by implication to be ashamed; also (by
implication) to be disappointed or delayed. (Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance, Hebrew Lexicon #954) It is also variously
translated as, (be, make, bring to, cause, put to, with, a-)shamed(-d), be (put
to) confounded(-fusion), become dry, delay, be long.
Mr. Bush has
extremely confounded, confused and disappointed many of his supporters during
his tenure as president. His own father was of the same mettle. Remember during
his campaign when he said, “Read my lips, no new taxes,” and then promptly
caved in to tax increases right after being sworn in? How disappointing and
confusing, but rather like the Hebrew “buwsh.”
younger Bush has implemented a tax bill that lowered taxes. He has supported and
signed legislation that has not only caved in to his own sworn enemies, but, in
reality, has limited Constitutional rights. Isn’t it rather confusing to
attack Muslims because they attacked us, wage war against them and then turn
around and stand for our ports to be managed by them?
Isn’t it rather confusing to proclaim to be a Republican conservative and
then cave in to Democratic liberal bills passed by congress? The Hebrew term
fits in so many, many ways. Hebrew is the language of revelation.
AT THE END
We, who read,
study, believe and teach the Scriptures, understand that there is going to be a
great crisis at the end of the age. It is going to be the “time of Jacob’s
trouble.” (Jer. 30:7)
understand that the U.S. and certain other nations are, in reality, the
descendants of the northern kingdom of Israel which went into captivity by the
hand of the Assyrians back around 721 BCE.
We are facing
that “crisis” today! It is looming in the very near future. Yahweh has
fulfilled His promise to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Israel. He promised to
greatly bless the forefathers and their descendants. But He also promises to
chasten and correct when they get out of line. (Lev. 26:2; Hos. 7:12)
prophesies in another place concerning the reason that the time of trouble is
coming upon the descendants of Israel in the last days, “Hear ye the word of
Yahweh, O house of Jacob, and all the families of the house of Israel:
Thus saith Yahweh, What iniquity have your
fathers found in me, that they are gone far from me, and have walked after
vanity, and are become vain?
Neither said they, Where is Yahweh that brought us up out of the land of Egypt,
that led us through the wilderness, through a land of deserts and of pits,
through a land of drought, and of the shadow of death, through a land that no
man passed through, and where no man dwelt?
And I brought you into a plentiful country, to eat the fruit thereof and the
goodness thereof; but when ye entered, ye defiled my land, and made
mine heritage an abomination.
The priests said not, Where is Yahweh? and they that
handle the law knew me not: the pastors also transgressed against me, and the prophets prophesied by
Baal (the Lord), and
walked after things that do not profit.
Wherefore I will yet plead with you, saith Yahweh, and with your children's
children will I plead.
For pass over the isles of Chittim, and see; and send unto Kedar, and consider
diligently, and see if there be such a thing.
Hath a nation changed their Elohim, which are yet no gods?
but my people have changed their (should be “My glory”) glory for that which
doth not profit.
Be astonished, O ye heavens, at this, and be horribly afraid, be ye very
desolate, saith Yahweh.
For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me
the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns,
that can hold no water.
Is Israel a servant? is he a homeborn slave? why is he spoiled?
The young lions roared upon him, and yelled, and they made his land waste: his
cities are burned without inhabitant.
Also the children of Noph and Tahapanes have broken the crown of thy head.
Hast thou not procured this unto thyself, in that thou
hast forsaken Yahweh thy Elohim, when he led thee by the way?
And now what hast thou to do in the way of Egypt, to drink
the waters of Sihor? or what hast thou to do in the way of Assyria, to drink the waters of the
Thine own wickedness shall correct thee, and thy
backslidings shall reprove thee: know therefore and see that it is an evil thing
and bitter, that thou hast forsaken Yahweh thy Elohim, and that my fear is not
in thee, saith Yahweh ELOHIM of hosts.
For of old time I have broken thy yoke, and burst thy bands; and thou saidst, I
will not transgress; when upon every high hill and under every green tree thou
wanderest, playing the harlot.
Yet I had planted thee a noble vine, wholly a right seed: how then art thou
turned into the degenerate plant of a strange vine unto me?
For though thou wash thee with nitre, and take thee much soap, yet thine
iniquity is marked before me, saith Yahweh Elohim.

A wild ass used to the wilderness, that snuffeth up the wind at her pleasure; in
her occasion who can turn her away? all they that seek her will not weary
themselves; in her month they shall find her.
Withhold thy foot from being unshod, and thy throat from thirst: but thou saidst,
There is no hope: no; for I have loved strangers, and after them will I go.
As the thief is ashamed when he is found, so is the house
of Israel ashamed; they, their kings, their princes, and their priests, and
Saying to a stock, Thou art my father; and to a stone,
Thou hast brought me forth: for they have turned their back unto me, and not
their face: but in the time of their
trouble they will say, Arise, and save us.
But where are thy gods that thou hast made thee? let them
arise, if they can save thee in the time of thy trouble: for according to the
number of thy cities are thy gods, O Judah.
Wherefore will ye plead with me? ye all have transgressed against me, saith
In vain have I smitten your children; they received no correction: your own
sword hath devoured your prophets, like a destroying lion.
O generation, see ye the word of Yahweh. Have I been a wilderness unto Israel? a
land of darkness? wherefore say my people, We are lords; we will come no more
32 Can a maid forget her
ornaments, or a bride her attire? yet my people have forgotten me days without
number.” Jer. 2:4-32.
Israel was told
that they had been delivered from the “iron furnace,” (Dt. 4:13-20). They
were warned that if they refused to obey their Almighty Elohim Yahweh, that they
would be returned to Egypt (Dt. 28:68).
overall preponderance of peoples on this earth don’t realize that this
prophecy has been fulfilled, especially the peoples of America!
Noph, spoken of
by Jeremiah in verse 16 of the previous quoted Scriptures, is nothing more than
Memphis of Egypt. Sihor has to do with the spirit of Horus, the son of Osiris
and Isis of Egypt. Osiris, Isis and Horus was the trinity of Egypt. Both Osiris
and Horus were sun gods.
commemorates or sets aside Sunday, the first day of the week, as his/her day of
rest and holy convocation, he is honoring the sun gods of all the pagan nations,
especially of Babylon, Persia, Greece, Rome and Egypt! To drink of the waters of
Sihor simply has to do with imbibing the spirit of Horus.
By the way,
December 25th is his birthday (also of Osiris). Easter is the commemoration of
his death and resurrection.
One more thing
that we must point out is the back of the dollar bill which displays the Great
Pyramid of Egypt with the all-seeing eye of Horus hovering over it.
This is all proof that the Prophet Jeremiah was correct. Israel, Yahweh’s
people, have been deceived to return to Egypt. While there is still a nation on
the earth which bears the name Egypt, the fact of the matter is that America is

He was going to choose them from a “furnace of affliction.” “Hear ye this,
O house of Jacob, which are called by the name of Israel, and are come forth out
of the waters of Judah, which swear by the name of Yahweh, and make mention of
the Elohim of Israel, but not in truth, nor in righteousness.
For they call themselves of the holy city, and stay themselves upon the Elohim
of Israel; Yahweh of hosts is his name.
I have declared the former things from the beginning; and they went forth out of
my mouth, and I shewed them; I did them suddenly, and they came to pass.
Because I knew that thou art obstinate, and thy neck is an iron sinew, and thy
I have even from the beginning declared it to thee; before it came to pass I
shewed it thee: lest thou shouldest say, Mine idol hath done them, and my graven
image, and my molten image, hath commanded them.
Thou hast heard, see all this; and will not ye declare it? I have shewed thee
new things from this time, even hidden things, and thou didst not know them.
They are created now, and not from the beginning; even before the day when thou
heardest them not; lest thou shouldest say, Behold, I knew them.
Yea, thou heardest not; yea, thou knewest not; yea, from that time that thine
ear was not opened: for I knew that thou wouldest deal very treacherously, and
wast called a transgressor from the womb.
¶ For my name's sake will I defer mine anger, and for my praise will I refrain
for thee, that I cut thee not off.
10 Behold, I have refined thee,
but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction,” Isa. 48:1-10.
Going back to
the book of Daniel chapter two, we find that Nebuchadnezzar is given a dream
which is a thumbnail sketch of the history of not only the world, but also of
idolatry. There were to be four major world ruling kingdoms. Babylon was the
head of gold, Persia, the breast and arms of silver, Macedonia/Greece the belly
and thighs of bronze and Rome the legs of iron and feet of iron and clay. The
fourth kingdom, Rome, was to continue until Yahweh establishes the kingdom of
heaven on earth through the stone that was cut out without hands (Yahshua).
Isn’t it ironic that the fourth kingdom is composed primarily of iron?
Isn’t it ironic that Yahweh promised to choose Israel from the “furnace of
affliction?” Isn’t that furnace elsewhere called the “iron furnace,”
We are at the
end of the age. We are soon going to enter into the time of Jacob’s trouble at
the latter days. All we have to do is look about us on every side.
We are being
warned that our Social Security program can’t go on for much longer. It is
going to be short of funds in the not too distant future. The Medicare and
Medicaid programs are also in trouble. Of Course, if they run out of money, then
that means that the government will be out of money because these programs are
There is talk
about the real-estate bubble that is about ready to burst. Since much of our
industry had either moved or is moving out of the country, we are becoming a
SERVICE oriented society. Service? Doesn’t that mean to serve others, like in
indebtedness or as a bond servant?
immigrants are becoming more and more of a problem, placing even more strains on
schools, social services, hospitals and doctors, and such like.
What about the
rising cost of the war in Iraq? What about the other international problems that
we are facing? Did you know that Iran will no longer be selling their oil on the
world markets for the U.S. dollar by the end of March? They will be selling
their oil for Euros. If other nations promptly follow suit, it will spell
disaster for the American dollar and our economy.
This is all prophesied and much, much more. It is now coming to pass.
Prepare yourselves before it is too late!” (End of excerpt)
plenty of end-time prophets extant in this world today. Any who considers
himself to be such truly needs to make sure he is receiving messages from the
true Elohim Yahweh. If he is given a prophecy from his Elohim (god) and it
doesn’t come to fruition, then he needs to rethink where he is getting his
messages from. However, the prophecies have already been written and given to
Yahweh’s people in times past. We have them in the form of the Scriptures.
has lived up to his name. He has greatly disappointed the nation and its people
of both major parties and all other parties as well. He has also confounded and
confused the people. But think of this, both he and John Kerry were members of
the “Skull and Bones Fraternity” at Yale. So was George Bush Senior.
The skull and
crossbones is a symbol of piracy. Pirates plunder. We, as a nation, are being
raped and left in the wilderness to dry up and die. Our own government has
indebted us to the tune of trillions of dollars. Such is what happens when a
people forsake their Elohim and cast His word behind. The end result is bondage,
enslavement, sin, corruption, suffering, pain, death and destruction. It is
coming, be sure of that!
And now, what
choices do the people have for the office of the presidency? Mohammed, Jezebel,
or the son of Cain!
The media has
always covered up the true background of those it chooses to be the leaders of
the country. The media, of course, is owned by the super rich who are
continually manipulating the people for their own personal gain and desires.
They are utilizing the pen, radio, television, movies, music, etc., to lead us
down the road to vanity and destruction.
Mr. Obama has
been a member of a group of people for 20 years who have spewed out vile hatred
for this nation and its people. Their own writers have published a message of
hate for any elohim (god) who might bring trials, pain and suffering upon them.
Wake up America! This is not the love of Yahweh! The true Savior Yahshua was
humble and obedient to the Father even to the death of the cross. The leaders of
Mr. Obama’s church have written that any god that afflicts their people needs
Clinton’s ties to Moscow, socialism, communism and humanism are also quite
obvious from the previous eight years of Mr. Clinton’s presidency. How many
people took notice that every year of his presidency that they took a trip to

illegal for Americans to travel there) to learn how to organize demonstrations
against the U. S. Government.

the enemy. Did you ever see the movie “The Manchurian Candidate?” He sure
fits the bill.
The fact of the
matter is the future of America, left in the hands of man, is bleak, so very,
very bleak. Oh America, America, if you would only wake up and realize that you
have been so greatly duped! If only you would wake up and see that your best
interests are in the hands of your all wise, almighty creator Yahweh and His
He does promise a better government in the future, but that will come only after disaster and destruction are implemented. After all, even though His word pronounces judgment upon His people, it also reveals His great and wondrous love and mercy that He has for them (us). This author looks forward to and prays for that day when the bright sunshiny day of His kingdom is brought forth for the whole house of Israel. That is the Word, the prophecy that this author trusts in, believes in and hopes for. Yahweh’s word does not fail. All praise to Him for that! JH

II. THE MEAT OFFERING
Leviticus chapter two covers what was called the “meat offering.” This
offering gives us another interesting view of the sacrifice of Yahshua. It was
an offering made by fire, of a sweet savor unto Yahweh, but instead of a life
being required, an animal sacrifice with the shedding of blood, in this instance
a substance of the earth, grain or corn was offered.
Life comes from Yahweh and belongs to Him. Yahweh formed man of the dust
of the ground, and breathed the breath of life into his nostrils (Gen. 2:7).
Yahweh is the Elohim of the living, not the dead (Mt. 22:32).
The grass, corn, herb, and fruit trees were food for animals and man,
“Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of
all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding
seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and every
fowl of the air, and to everything that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life,
I have given every green herb for meat:’ and it was so,” Gen. 1:29-30.
The first offering (the holocaust) in Leviticus chapter 1 was
a sacrifice, a type of dedication, being totally consumed for and by Yahweh.
This second offering was an offering for man, because Aaron and his sons were to
eat of this offering after a memorial
of it was burnt on the altar to Yahweh.
The first two offerings, the holocaust and the meat offering, appear to
be a type of Yahshua in the fulfillment of the law, for when He was asked,
“Master, which is the great commandment in the law?” Yahshua answered and
said unto him, “Thou shalt love Yahweh thy Elohim with all thy heart, and with all thy
soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it,
shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the
prophets,” Mt. 22:36-40.
The burnt offering revealed Yahshua’s total dedication to Yahweh. It
revealed His love for Yahweh with all of His
heart. The meat offering continued that dedication with the portion that was
totally consumed as a burnt offering, but the rest of the meat offering served for
revealing the love He had for neighbor. Yahshua said, “This is My commandment,
That ye love one another, as I have loved you. Greater love hath no man than
this, that a man lay down his life for his friends,” Jn. 15:12-13.
These very words were spoken during the Passover meal which Yahshua
instituted as a memorial to His sacrifice...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,”
Lk. 22:19-20. This “Passover” service was instituted as a “memorial” to
be observed once a year at its appointed time to “show” the Master’s death
till He come. (1 Cor. 11:26).
The meat offering was also a “memorial.” It consisted chiefly of flour or flour made
into unleavened cakes, wafers, a fried flour tortilla, or, in the instance of
firstfruits, it was to be of the whole grain itself.
These are all symbols of Yahshua for He said, “For the bread of Elohim
is He which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world,... I am
that bread of life... This is that bread which cometh down from heaven, that a
man may eat thereof, and not die. I am the living bread which came down from
heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that
I will give is My flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. The Jews
therefore strove among themselves saying, ‘How can this Man give us His flesh
to eat?’ Then Yahshua answered them, ‘Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except
ye eat the flesh of the Son of Man, and drink His blood, ye have no life in you.
Whoso eateth My flesh, and drinketh My blood, hath eternal life; and I will
raise him up at the last day. For My flesh is meat (the meat offering) indeed,
and My blood is drink indeed. He that eateth My flesh, and drinketh My blood,
dwelleth in Me, and I in him. As the living Father hath sent Me and I live by
the Father: so he that eateth Me, even he shall live by Me. This is the bread
which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he
that eateth of this bread shall live for ever,” Jn. 6:33, 48, 50-58.
Is there any doubt then that the meat offering typifies Yahshua as the
bread from heaven which is to be eaten at the Passover memorial each year? Is
there any doubt that these first two offerings typify Yahshua in His fulfillment
of Yahweh’s royal law of love: love toward Elohim, and love toward man?
The Messiah was not only tried by fire; Yahweh’s holiness is not the
only thing that consumed Him. In meeting the wants of man, His soul was grieved,
and pressed and bruised continually. He lays Himself out for others; He spends
Himself for others; but they cannot understand Him. His soul is grieved. His
Spirit is bruised with the blindness of their hearts. Even His own close
associates finally forsoke Him at His moment of deepest trial. He was stricken, smitten
of Elohim and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised
for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and by His
stripes we are healed...He was oppressed and He was afflicted, yet He opened not
His mouth, Isa. 53:4-5, 7.
The fine flour represents the bruising, crushing, pressing, enduring
trials the Messiah went through. Yet it is also the emblem of His evenness for
He was able to endure it all without complaint.
The third ingredient was frankincense, which is the most precious of
perfumes, of delightful and enduring fragrance, an emblem of the sweetness and
fragrance of Yahshua’s offering.
Honey and leaven were not to be used because leaven sours and puffs up
the flour and honey also sours or ferments and spoils under heat. But the full
fragrance of frankincense is not brought out until submitted to action by fire.
Fire is a symbol of fiery trial.
The Messiah was tempted by Satan, debased, humiliated, mocked by men and
smitten of Yahweh and afflicted (Isa. 53:4), and yet the closer to the fiery
trials, yea even being cast into the fiery oven itself, He yielded the most
fragrant odor which ascended before the throne of Yahweh, holy
and acceptable. This
should and must be proclaimed before men, a thing most holy, precious, and
Even though this meat offering was for man, to be his food, yet a portion
of it was burnt upon the altar to Yahweh, witnessing that this offering was
Yahweh’s purpose, designed in heaven for the good of all men who will believe,
the manna, true bread from heaven itself.
The flour and oil have already been discussed along with being baked in
an oven as an emblem of fiery trial. The word “cakes” is interesting,
however, for the Hebrew word actually means cakes as punctured
or pierced, and that is exactly what happened to the Messiah. “They pierced My
hands and My feet,” Psa. 22:16. “And I will pour upon the house of David,
and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications:
and they shall look upon Me Whom they have pierced,” Zech. 12:10. “But one
of the soldiers with a spear pierced His side,” Jn. 19:34.
The second class of the meat offering consisted of the unleavened cakes
or thin wafers, anointed with oil. A wafer must be rolled, mashed, pressed into its shape. Does
not this represent the Messiah with all the sufferings and burdens that He had
to bear, “For even hereunto were ye called; because Messiah also suffered
for us, leaving us an
example that ye should follow His steps,” 1 Pet. 2:21. “The elders which are
among you I exhort, who am also an elder and a witness of the sufferings of Messiah,”
1 Pet. 5:1.
He was anointed with the Holy Spirit as these wafers were anointed with
oil, “How Yahweh anointed Yahshua of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with
power,” Acts 10:38.
It is interesting to note the different roles of the oil, for it was
poured, mingled, anointed, mingled and poured, and in the case of the frying
pan, with. This would
typify the workings of Yahweh’s Spirit with the Messiah for He received it
without measure. It was, therefore, upon, in and with Him and He was begotten of
the Holy Spirit and so He was also of or from it.
There was one more class of meat offering. It was called the meat
offering of the firstfruits, green ears of corn or grain dried by fire, beaten
out of full ears. Oil was put on it and frankincense. It was an offering made by
fire. The grain represents the seed, the true seed of Elohim, the Son of Elohim.
The drying by fire represented the fiery trials He would have to face. It was
beaten representing His broken, pierced, beaten body. The green ears symbolize
His being cut off in the years of His youth before even reaching the age of 40.
The oil represented the Holy Spirit adding to Him the power to endure trials,
sufferings, and remain Holy unto Elohim, the frankincense yielding the sweet
smelling savor before Yahweh.
The Apostle John records, “After these things Yahshua went over the sea
of Galilee, which is the sea of Tiberias. And a great multitude followed him,
because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased. And
Yahshua went up into a mountain, and there he sat with his disciples. And the
passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh. When Yahshua then lifted up his eyes,
and saw a great company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy
bread, that these may eat? And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew
what he would do. Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not
sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little. One of his
disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, saith unto him, There is a lad here,
which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes: but what are they among so
many? And Yahshua said, Make the men sit down. Now there was much grass in the
place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand. And Yahshua took the
loaves; and when he had given thanks, he distributed to the disciples, and the
disciples to them that were set down; and likewise of the fishes as much as they
would. When they were filled, he said unto his disciples, Gather up the
fragments that remain, that nothing be lost. Therefore they gathered them
together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley
loaves, which remained over and above unto them that had eaten. Then those men,
when they had seen the miracle that Yahshua did, said, This is of a truth that
prophet that should come into the world. When Yahshua therefore perceived that
they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again
into a mountain himself alone. And when even was now come, his disciples went
down unto the sea, And entered into a ship, and went over the sea toward
Capernaum. And it was now dark, and Yahshua was not come to them,” Jn. 6:1-17.
Here is an account of Yahshua performing a miracle of sustenance as great
or greater than the one that EliYah the Prophet performed with the oil and meal
(flour) in his day (1 Ki. 17:1-16).
John says that the time was around Passover. Barley is the grain that is
associated with the Passover and days of Unleavened Bread.
Many of the people that he had fed also crossed the sea and found Him and
His disciples in Capernaum. When they approached Him inquiring how and when He
came there, He responded by advising them that they sought Him out not because
of the miracles that He had performed but because they had eaten the bread and
had been filled thereby (Jn. 6:25-26).
He then began to advise them that He was the true bread from heaven, that
their forefathers ate of the manna in the wilderness and were dead, but whoso
eats of His flesh as the true bread from heaven and drinks of His blood would
have eternal life (v.v. 31-58).
The manna was given to Israel for several different reasons.
prove them whether they would walk in Yahweh’s law or not (Ex. 16:4). Yahshua
the Messiah came to prove His people whether they would walk in the light of
they would know that Yahweh had brought them out of the land of Egypt (Ex.
16:7). Knowing Yahshua the Messiah delivers us from the present evil world of
which Egypt was a type.
their murmurings were against Yahweh (Ex. 16:8). Yahweh’s people Israel
continue to murmur and complain to this day.
behold the glory of Yahweh (Ex. 16:10). Yahshua came to reveal the glory of
Yahweh (Jn. 12:28, etc.).
they would know that Yahweh was their Elohim (Ex. 16:12). Yahshua was Yahweh in
the flesh. When Thomas saw the imprint of the nails he proclaimed, “My
Sovereign and My Elohim,” Jn. 20:29.
Yahweh is the One Who provides for them (Ex. 16:15). Yahweh has provided Yahshua
the Messiah, the true bread from heaven Who is unleavened (no sin) and the
living manna for those who believe in and on Him.
would lead them to the seventh day Sabbath and rest (Ex. 16:22-23). The Sabbath
is a type of the coming seventh millennium when Yahshua will rule in the kingdom
of heaven as King of kings and Sovereign of sovereigns bringing in peace and
THE PEACE OFFERING
The peace offering was to be shared by all. There was the portion for
Elohim, the fat and inwards burnt upon the altar so that it might ascend before
Him as a sweet savor. The priests were to receive the breast as a wave offering
and the right shoulder as a heave offering. The offerer with his family received
the rest. All were fed by this offering. All had communion at the table. All
Yahweh’s plan is revealed in these first three offerings for the burnt
offering, the first of these offerings satisfies only Yahweh. He is first. He
always has been in existence. All things were made by Him and for His purposes.
The second offering, the meat offering, was shared by Elohim and man,
specifically Aaron and His sons, the high priest and the priests. The second
part of Yahweh’s plan and holy days is called the firstfruits, revealing to us
the firstfruits assembly which will serve as kings and priests under the High
Priest, Yahshua. The third part of Yahweh’s plan, the feast of ingathering
reveals the final step of salvation, the millenial rule and day of judgment. It
reveals the great spiritual harvest of Yahweh which will complete His great plan
of salvation, reaping subjects into His kingdom and complete His kingdom as far
as the first three requirements or stages are concerned, for a kingdom must have
a king, government, subjects and territory.
He, Yahweh, will be Elohim and King. The firstfruits will be the government,
kings and priests under Him.
Those of the ingathering will serve as the subjects. When this is done, then
Yahweh will bring forth a new heavens and earth fulfilling another requirement,
for a kingdom must also have territory.
The peace offering was also to be blemish free representing Yahshua, Who
did no sin, for He is the One that is able to bring all of Yahweh’s plans to
fruition. He is the One Who is able to instill peace between Elohim and man, and
between man and man. “For He is our peace (offering), Who hath made both one,
and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us; having abolished
in His flesh the enmity, even (against) the law of commandments contained in
ordinances; for to make in Himself of twain one new man, so making peace; and
that He might reconcile both unto Yahweh in one body by the stake, having slain
the enmity therby: and came and preached peace to you which were afar off and to
them which were nigh. For through Him we both (Jew and Gentile) have access by
one Spirit unto the Father,” Eph. 2:14-18. This Scripture shows the peace we
all can have with the Father and between ourselves.
Paul also writes, “Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us
meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath
delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom
of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the
forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible Elohim, the firstborn of
every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that
are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or
principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he
is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the
body, the assembly: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in
all things he might have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in him
should all fulness dwell; And, having made peace through the blood of his cross,
by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be
things in earth, or things in heaven. And you, that were sometime alienated and
enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled in the body of
his flesh through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable
in his sight: If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved
away from the hope of the evangel, which ye have heard, and which was preached
to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister; Who
now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the
afflictions of the Messiah in my flesh for his body's sake, which is the
assembly: Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of Yahweh
which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of Yahweh; Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from
generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:
To whom Yahweh would make known what is the riches of the
glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is the Messiah in you, the hope
of glory: Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every
man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in the Messiah Yahshua,”
Don’t these Scriptures verify the mystery of the offerings, especially
the peace offering? He suffered and died that all men might find peace between
themselves and the Father in heaven through Yahshua the peace offering!
Peter declared to Cornelius and his group, “Then Peter opened his
mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that Yahweh is no respecter of persons:
But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted
with him. The word
which Yahweh sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Yahshua the
Messiah: (he is Sovereign of all:) That word, I say, ye know,
which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the
baptism which John preached; How Yahweh anointed Yahshua of Nazareth with the
Holy Spirit and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were
oppressed of the devil; for Yahweh was with him. And we are witnesses of all
things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they
slew and hanged on a tree: Him Yahweh raised up the third day, and shewed him
openly; Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before of Yahweh, even
to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead. And he
commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was
ordained of Yahweh to be the Judge of quick and dead. To him give all the
prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive
remission of sins,” Acts 10:34-43.
Yahshua declared to His disciples, “These things I have spoken unto
you, that in me ye might have
peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good
cheer; I have overcome the world,” Jn. 16:33.
An interesting incident happened during the time Yahshua was being
battered and bruised in preparation for the sacrifice. Pilate had sent Him to
Herod, who, with his men of war, set Him at nought, and mocked Him, and arrayed
Him in a gorgeous robe and then sent Him back to Pilate. That same day Pilate
and Herod made friends together: for before they were at enmity between
themselves (Lk. 23:11-12). Here we have an instance of the Messiah, the peace
offering, making peace, friendship between enemies on the very day of His death! Both Pilate and Herod were rulers in the Roman Empire,
the great and terrible fourth beast of Daniel chapter seven. They were enemies
of the Hebrews and Yahweh! Look at the power of Yahshua’s peace offering!
The Messiah fulfilled all the requirements of the peace offering. It is
now possible for us to have peace and communion with Yahweh. We live in a world
that does not know peace, but we can seek peace and have it through Yahshua.
The first three offerings show Yahshua in His perfectness offering
Himself to Yahweh without sin. The last two show Him, still in perfectness, but
as a representative for sin. The first offerings were for acceptance, the last
The sin offering was for a sin through ignorance (Lev. 4:1). The first
person to be dealt with is a priest, the second is the whole congregation of
Israel, specifying elders, third a ruler, fourth a common person.
What is the meaning of sin through ignorance? The Hebrew word “sin”
in this instance is “chata” and means: “to miss” or “lead astray.”
The word for ignorance is “shegagah” or “shagah” which means: “to
stray,” “to wander,” in “ignorance” or “deceit.” In other words,
being deceived into sinning, sinning unwittingly, straying ignorantly, caused to
How could this happen to those who had Yahweh’s laws and commandments;
especially the priests, elders and rulers who were to teach Yahweh’s ways and
also judge the people according to them?
The answer is interesting and revealing. Israel was Yahweh’s wife,
“Turn, O backsliding children,” saith Yahweh, “For I am Married unto
you,” Jer. 3:14. “Behold, the days come,” saith Yahweh, “that I will
make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah, not
according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took
them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, which, My covenant they
broke, although I was an husband unto them,” saith Yahweh, Jer. 31:31-32.
Israel was the wife of Elohim, the Elohim Who became the Messiah,
“Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our
fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; and were all
baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea, and did all eat the same
spiritual meat; and did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of
that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Messiah,” 1 Cor.
10:4. They were, in effect, the wife of the last Adam, and so it is written,
“The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a
quickening spirit,” 1 Cor. 15:45.
Do you begin to see the pattern developing? Satan, the serpent or dragon,
deceived the first woman, Eve, the wife of the first Adam (Gen. 3:13, 1 Tim.
2:14). Satan has deceived the whole world (Rev. 12:9). Israel, the wife of
Yahweh, Who became the Messiah, the last or second Adam was also deceived into
sinning and had to suffer a type of death and destruction which was accomplished
in stages beginning first in 722-721 BCE, secondly, 604-585 BCE, and thirdly,
69-70 CE. The amazing thing is that Israel’s sin through deceit did its
destructive work on her husband, just as Eve’s did on Adam.
We all know that in order to buy us back, to redeem, and deliver us from
the deceitful grips of sin, Elohim had to empty Himself of the power and glory
that He had, be born as a man and suffer death, “For what the law could not
do, in that it was weak through the flesh, Yahweh sending His own Son in the
likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh,” Ro.
“Let this mind be in you, which was also in the Messiah Yahshua:
Who, being in the form of Elohim, thought it not robbery to be equal with Elohim
(see Jn. 1:1-3): But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form
of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as
a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the
cross. Wherefore Yahweh also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which
is above every name: That at the name of Yahshua every knee should bow, of
things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that
every tongue should confess that Yahshua the Messiah is Sovereign, to the glory
of Yahweh the Father,” Phil. 2:5-11.
This is the story of the sin offering. The sin offering was
offered for sins of ignorance, sin brought upon a deceived people, similar to
Eve’s sin. The serpent had beguiled Eve. The wife, Israel, of the
second Adam, Yahshua, was also deceived bringing death upon herself and her
Notice that in Lev. 4, a priest’s sins are dealt with first and
required the highest class of offering, a bullock (v. 3). The reason for this
would be that the priest is closest to Yahweh, serving in the tabernacle itself,
deeming the necessity for the highest type of offering or sacrifice.
According to the Prophet Malachi, the Levitical priesthood had failed in its
commission to lead, guide and teach the people (Mal. 2).
The sin offering was also different from others in that only the fat, the caul above the liver and the kidneys were
burnt upon the altar, the rest of the sacrifice, its skin, flesh, head, legs,
inwards and dung were carried outside the camp to a clean place where the ashes
of the altar of burnt sacrifice were poured out and it was there burned to ashes
upon wood. This was a forerunner of the Messiah’s being impaled outside the
city of Jerusalem (Heb. 13:10-12), and then being buried in a tomb where no
other dead body had been laid, a clean place (Jn. 19:41).
The fat as well as the caul above the liver represented the increase,
wealth, health, and vitality of an individual. Yahweh gives the increase (1 Cor.
3:7) as well as life. The wages of sin is death, therefore, sin removes from us
the very things Yahweh has given to us, life and increase.
The requirement of the kidneys, in this instance seems to be linked with
the mind for the kidneys were associated with the reigns and, in the Hebrew,
were a figure of the mind.
The offerer would lay his hands on the animal, in essence, transferring
his guilt, his sin to the animal and then slay it. In the case of the priest’s
or the whole congregation of Israel’s sin of ignorance, the blood was
sprinkled before the vail of the sanctuary seven times, seven being Yahweh’s
number for completion or perfection. Some of it was placed on the horns of the
altar of incense and the rest was poured out at the bottom of the altar of burnt
offering, all symbols of the Messiah’s blood which would be poured out for the
sins of the whole world.
A lower class of animal was required for a ruler. He would offer a kid of
the goats, a male without blemish. The priest would take its blood and smear
some of it on the horns of the altar of burnt sacrifice and pour the rest at the
bottom of the altar. Only the fat was to be burnt.
If any of the common people sinned through ignorance they were to take a
female kid of the goats or a female lamb.
Another distinction of the sin offering was brought out
in Lev. 5. It is mentioned that if a person should hear the voice of
swearing or touched any unclean thing then he was to bring a female lamb or kid,
but if he was not able to do so then he could provide two turtledoves or young
pigeons, one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering. But if he
was not able to do even this then he was allowed to bring a tenth of an ephah of
flour. The priest would take a handful and burn it on the altar of burnt
offering, the rest of it would belong to the priest as a meat offering, but no
oil nor frankincense was allowed with it for it was a sin offering and
Yahweh’s Spirit cannot dwell with sin and neither is sin a sweet smelling odor
nor savor to Yahweh.
One more thing about the sin offering, it was an offering for sin of
ignorance. The sinner committed a sin or sins in ignorance, unwittingly,
unknowingly, but when the person came to realize that he had sinned then he was
to offer the sin offering. It has been said that a deceived person doesn't know
that he has been deceived. How true this statement is. The world has been
deceived by the devil, but at the proper time, the time of Yahweh’s choice, it
will be revealed, and then the sacrifice that the Messiah made for this sin will
be applied. Today, Yahweh is calling many, but electing, choosing only a few (Jn.
6:44; Mt. 20:16).
How many trespass offerings would have to be offered for the swearing and
cursing that goes on in this world today? There is also so much uncleanness in
today’s world. What a lesson it would be if each time a person was caught
swearing or touching some unclean thing a trespass offering would have to be
made. What kind of an attitude would people develop if they had to make a
sacrifice each time they swore or cursed or touched some uncleanness? If it
began to get to one’s pocket book, they would then learn some lessons. Maybe
there would also be some changed attitudes. But if one would learn lessons and
change attitudes because of harm to one’s pocket book, then how much more
important do men consider their pocket book than the Blessed and Precious
The second trespass mentioned was to sin through ignorance (being
deceived) concerning the holy things of Yahweh. The sacrifice in this instance
was to be a ram without blemish out of the flocks with an estimation by shekels
of silver. He was to provide the ram plus twenty percent of the ram’s
estimated value for offering and atonement.
The third trespass mentioned is if one purposely
trespassed and, through a lie, attempted to keep something that a neighbor had
given into his hands for safekeeping, or if he had violently taken something, or if he had found something that was lost,
and lied in order to keep it, etc. The item was to be restored to its rightful
owner plus 20% of its estimated value and he was also to offer a trespass
offering out of the flocks to the priest. This offering covered trespasses which
were purposely committed.
The Apostle Paul writes, “And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and
sins; Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course
of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that
now worketh in the children of disobedience: Among whom also we all had our
conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of
the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as
others. But Yahweh, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved
us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with the Messiah,
(by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit
together in heavenly places in the Messiah Yahshua: That in the ages to come he
might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through
the Messiah Yahshua. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of
yourselves: it is the gift of Yahweh: Not of works, lest any man should boast.
For we are his workmanship, created in the Messiah Yahshua unto good works,
which Yahweh hath before ordained that we should walk in them. 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 the Messiah, being aliens from the
commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no
hope, and without Yahweh in the world: But now in the Messiah Yahshua ye who
sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of the Messiah,” Eph.
These are the five offerings, given by Yahweh for the purpose of
administering mercy and grace. They were all fulfilled and satisfied by the
sacrifice of Yahshua in His one sacrifice, “For such an high priest became us,
who is holy,
harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;
Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for
his own sins, and then for the people's: for this he did once,
when he offered up himself,” Heb. 7:26-27.
“But Messiah being come an high priest of good things to come, by a
greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of
this building; Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by
his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for
us. For if the blood of
bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean,
sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of
Messiah, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to Yahweh,
purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living Elohim? And for this
cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the
redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise
of eternal inheritance. For where a testament is,
there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at
all while the testator liveth. Whereupon neither the first testament
was dedicated without
blood. For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to
the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool,
and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people, Saying, This is
the blood of the
testament which Yahweh hath enjoined unto you. Moreover he sprinkled with blood
both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry. And almost all things
are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.
It was therefore
necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with
these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. For
Messiah is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to
appear in the presence of Yahweh for us: Nor yet that He should offer himself
often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of
others; For then must He often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the
end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.
And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: So Messiah was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him
shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation,” Heb. 9:11-28.
“And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes
the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: But this man, after
he had offered one sacrifice for sins
for ever, sat down on the right hand of Yahweh,” Heb. 10:11-12.
Messiah also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to Yahweh,
being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit,” 1 Pet. 3:18.
Consider the difference between the Levitical high priest and Yahshua,
the heavenly High Priest. While the Levitical high priest offered an animal
sacrifice for himself and the people, Yahshua, the heavenly High Priest, offered
the supreme sacrifice, to wit: HIMSELF.
It appears that Yahshua fulfilled the first three offerings during His
life, for He was totally dedicated to Yahweh, and totally consumed in His zeal
to fulfil His will (burnt offering). He also spent His life, especially His
ministry, serving His neighbor, for He loved His fellow man, even though He was
totally righteous and without sin, while His fellow man was laden with sin. He
esteemed others better than Himself, in effect, fulfilling the law of love
toward neighbor (meat offering).
His righteous life was able to bring about peace between Elohim and man,
in effect, mediating between the two, for He is the only being Who has lived as
both Elohim and man (peace offering).
The last two offerings (sin and trespass) were specifically fulfilled in
His death, for He took upon Himself the penalty of our sins and trespasses
Notice that these offerings were only a shadow.
I have hopefully
taken the shadows and portrayed
Yahshua, the true image, has fulfilled the things that foreshadowed Him.
Notice also that Yahweh had no pleasure of those things which were offered by
the law. Paul Himself writes about Moses putting a vail on His face so that
Israel could not see the end of those things which were to be abolished (2 Cor.
3:13). He says that their minds were blinded when the Old Testament is read (v.
14-15). Yet the vail is taken away when one turns to Messiah (v. 16). Let’s
take away the vail and look to Yahshua, not “forcing” Him to completely
conform to Moses, but allowing Moses to speak of and conform to Him.
These offerings were fulfilled by Yahshua throughout His entire life and
also in His death, as He said (Mt. 5:17). What a tremendous and glorious Savior
we have! Let us ever serve the purpose of following Him, serving Him, and
glorifying Him Who suffered for us. HALLELUYAH!
don’t let anyone whether an angel or elder of an assembly, church or whatever
tell you that Yahshua did
