HOLY COMMUNION
MIRACLES OF DISCERNMENT
~ A MIRACLE PODCAST PRODUCTION ~

It is the Passover sacrifice of the Lord,
who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt
when He struck the Egyptians and delivered our households.”
Torah: Exodus 12:27

When He (Yeshua) had given thanks, He broke the bread and said,
“Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you;
do this in remembrance of Me.”

1 Corinthians 11:24


COMMUNION LOOKS BACKWARD

In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”  1 Corinthians 11:25

During this last Passover supper with his talmidim (disciples) the Lord was instructing them to carry out this observance as a reminder that He was the real Passover Lamb. Looking back not only at the first Passover in Egypt, but more importantly, that He was the Passover who the next day would carry the sins of the world on the cross-stake. The New Covenant would be established and replace the Old when His blood would be shed.

THE NEW COVENANT

Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when 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 lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them, says the Lord. But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.”

NOTE: See links at the bottom of this message for teaching series on the Passover.

COMMUNION LOOKS FORWARD

For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He returns.” 1 Corinthians 11:26

The Lord told them He would NOT take part in this supper with them again until He returns to establish His Kingdom on earth.

But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father’s kingdom.” Matthew 26:29

COMMUNION LOOKS INWARD

Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup.” 1 Corinthians 11:27-28

MIRACLES ARE AVAILABLE IN THE HOLY COMMUNION
WHEN THE PRESENCE OF CHRIST IS DISCERNED

For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. For this reason many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep [are dead].” 1 Corinthians 11:29-30

NOTICE

This passage is telling YOU that many people could have received their healing … but as a result of NOT discerning the Lord’s body (not meditating on and thinking seriously about) Messiah’s broken, beaten body AND His shed blood on the cross-stake … they did NOT appropriate healing. They continued in sickness or disease (even mental) … and some even died due to NOT discerning the Lord’s body when they could have been healed! They did NOT take advantage of healing during the Lord’s Supper!


WE SHOULD EXPECT MIRACLES DURING THE LORD’S SUPPER

I was invited by a well-known radio DJ in the Youngstown, Ohio USA area to preach at an outdoor meeting at Austintown Fitch Football Stadium. We had a crowd nearly the size of the Billy Graham Associates’ previous meeting with virtually NO advertising other than Johnny’s promos on his radio show. Johnny had recently been saved and enjoyed sharing his testimony on the radio. Johnny Kay was a super representative for Christ in his personal life as well as his public life as a DJ on radio.

Before the meeting started I was on the inside of the track praying. I noticed two men in wheelchairs on the other side of the track near the stands. I thought to myself, “I wonder what decision those men will make tonight?” When I gave the invitation, one of the men in wheelchairs, named Jim, rolled forward across the gravel track to the inside of the football field (or, was rolled forward) and made a decision to follow Christ. [Plus a counselor led seven (7) Roman Catholic Nuns to Christ.]

After the outdoor meeting at the Austintown Fitch Football Stadium I was conducting a seminar for two days for Dr. Len Evans (a Presbyterian pastor) at Pleasant Valley Evangelical Church in Niles, Ohio USA. At the end of the first day I asked for volunteers to fast with me for the next day’s meeting as I was going to teach on healing. Several people fasted and in the last two hours of that next day I taught on healing.

The man named Jim who had come forward in his wheelchair was attending the seminar I was teaching. Jim had been in the wheelchair nine (9) years due to TWO conditions: 1. He had been in an auto accident where a semi-trailer truck ran into him and broke his spine in several places; and, 2. He had Multiple Sclerosis. During the last day of the seminar Jim walked out of his wheelchair (for the first time in 9 years) during Holy Communion.

During that seminar a well known band named “The Glass Harp” played for me with their leader, Phil Keaggy. They had just released an album titled “Synergy” (which was a tag for drugs); however, after they saw Jim walk out of his wheel chair they never played for the world again. Phil went on to be used in large music ministry festivals.

Two years later, Jim gave his testimony in a large Presbyterian church somewhere in the area and several hundred people fell out of the seats under the power of the Holy Spirit. Thanks to the provision―the opportunity―to receive HEALING and MIRACLES as we take part in the Lord’s Supper … as we discern His body ,,, many people have received God’s blessings. You can, too!


COMMUNION LOOKS OUTWARD

After Jesus was raised from the dead, and right before He ascended back into Heaven, He came and spoke to them, saying, All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you [including the Lord’s Supper, Holy Communion]; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

‒ Matthew 28:18-20
God’s Kingdom is manifest on earth by YOU. You are His agent NOW. How BIG are your prayers? Are you including every nation, tribe and language? If you are baptized in the Holy Spirit, you have the POWER and AUTHORITY to bind and to loose inJesus’ name. You have the power and authority―in Jesus’ name―to operate in prophetic prayer.

The Holy Spirit is always anointing the NEW ORDER: those who are operating in the gifts of the Holy Spirit and praying in tongues. You will NOT rifle through the demonic forces in the heavenlies if you do NOT know HOW to pray in tongues, the language of the Holy Spirit.

Do NOT be fooled. If you want to be on the “cutting edge” of contemporary works of the Holy Spirit, you need to operate in His Gifts and speak His language. Study this Model of Discipleship. One young man I prayed with for the Baptism in the Spirit, and later ordained into the ministry, personally led over 170,336 people to Messiah Jesus in (one-on-one) evangelism in 32 years! Read the influence Larry Beckmann had on those he discipled and the results of those he trained for the Lord.

If you are a musician or Psalmist, allow the Holy Spirit to anoint your music whether the form be classical, alt-rock, pop, country, blues, Hip Hop or Indie. People should be healed and experience MIRACLES while listening to Spirit anointed music. The Holy Spirit is God’s Agent on earth to supply the resurrection power of Messiah Jesus!

 PREPARE TO TAKE THE LORD’S SUPPER NOW WITH PRINCE HANDLEY

THE BLESSING
YOUR LEGAL RIGHT
~ A MIRACLE PODCAST PRODUCTION ~

I want to help you to accomplish the impossible, to render null and void barriers the enemy would attempt to impose upon you, and to empower you to receive birthings: powerful, new ideas of the Spirit, and then to implement the ideas.

The enemy of all righteousness wants to impose barriers in your life and thereby restrict, as well as constrict, your productivity in the Spirit. These barriers can be mental, physical, demoniacal, and psychological. They can be real or imagined. The enemy may utilize people, demons, lies aimed at your mind, conditions, or relationships. Sometimes these relationships may even involve other believers.

If you know Jesus Christ and are baptized in His wonderful Spirit, you do not have to succumb to these oppositions and attacks. In 50 years of ministry I have found that many Christians are clandestinely held back from their maximum potential by not only a lack of stretching out in faith but also by focusing on the negatives instead of the positives. They are in defensive mode. Just as in sports, the BEST defense is a GOOD OFFENSE!

On the cross, Jesus (Yeshua) became a curse for us that we might receive the blessings of Abraham. Notice, the Messiah of Israel became a curse for us that we might be blessed. He took the curse that originated with Adam in the Garden of Eden. He took ALL curses that are encompassed by that disobedience of our first father: the first man, the first Adam.

The root of ALL curses on Planet Earth originated with the sin of disobedience by Adam in the Garden of Eden when he disobeyed God and obeyed Satan. When Adam did this, he relinquished his rulership of Planet Earth and yielded it to the Evil One. Notice, there is NOT a curse on earth that does NOT originate as a result of that ONE ACT of disobedience!

In Genesis Chapter 3 we read of a prophecy concerning the Seed of the first woman, Eve. Her seed would defeat, destroy, and subjugate the tempter, Satan, who deceived Adam in the Garden of Eden. This prophecy was pertaining to the 2nd Adam, the Son of God, who would come to delete the curse and install the blessing(s) which were already programmed before the foundation of the world: the BLESSINGS originating from GOD.

You were redeemed with the precious BLOOD of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot, who truly was FOREORDAINED BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD, but was manifest in these last times for you. The BLESSING was PLANNED FOR YOU before God created the world.

SECRET: The universe was created for Planet earth, and Planet Earth was created for YOU! The ROOT of ALL blessing(s) ON EARTH – and ultimately in Heaven – was purchased by Christ FOR YOU on the cross through His shed BLOOD and thereby deleting the curse. Through His resurrection He installed the blessing.

It was the first man, Adam, who initiated the curse through DISOBEDIENCE to God. It took a man (the God man) to delete the curse through OBEDIENCE to God so that we (mankind) could be BLESSED.

In the window of time between the fall of man in the garden with the resultant CURSE – and the death and resurrection of Christ with the resultant LEGAL installation of the BLESSING – God made a WAY for man to APPROPRIATE His blessing(s). That WAY was the same process by which men, women, and children appropriate God’s blessing(s) today: the WAY of FAITH.

Enoch, Abraham, Sarah, Deborah, Joseph, Moses, Elijah, Elisha, Daniel … and many others … appropriated the blessing(s) through faith. Read Hebrews Chapter 11.

You can make things with your FAITH, my friend. “Without faith it is impossible to please Him.” (Hebrews 11:6) “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things NOT seen.” (Hebrews 11:1) You can CREATE with your faith. Read my book, Faith and Quantum Physics.

FAITH & QUANTUM PHYSICS

In Genesis 12:1-3 God told Abram: And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing: and I will bless them that bless you, and curse him that curses you; and in you shall all the families of the earth be blessed. Later, in Genesis 22:18 God told Abraham In thy seed shall all nations of the earth be blessed. Because you have obeyed my voice.

The SEED of Abraham (the Messiah Jesus) became a curse FOR US that we might be blessed with faithful Abraham. The SEED (Messiah Jesus) broke ALL the curse(s) … even the ROOT of the curse(s) imposed in the garden of Eden with the resultant sin, death, effects of witchcraft, sins of the father, generational curse(s) … so that ALL people could be FREE from the curse(s) and be recipients of the blessing(s).

Christ (Messiah) has redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for It is written, Cursed is everyone that hangs on a tree, so that the BLESSING of Abraham might come on the non-Jews (Gentiles) through Jesus Christ. (Galatians 3:13-14)

Romans 4:13 tells us The promise that he (Abraham) should be the heir of the world, was NOT to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of FAITH. Just as God works through FAITH, the enemy of your soul works through FEAR. The MIRACLES of God … salvation, healing, power, commissioning … all work through FAITH. The evil of satan … witchcraft, disease, spiritual impotence, confusion … all work through fear.

If you haven’t already, read or listen to the edition titled The Covering. The BLOOD of Christ is your covering. The BLOOD will protect you from the works of the enemy. The BLOOD of Christ is living. The life of God is in THE BLOOD. The enemy can NOT come beyond the blood line. In Revelation 12:11 we read: They overcame him (the devil) by the BLOOD of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony, and they loved not their lives unto the death. If the BLOOD is your covering, you are protected. Speak (declare) the BLOOD over yourself, your family, your property, and everything the Lord has placed in your hands and the domains over which you preside.

A good personal friend of mine, Rachmiel Frydland, who is with the Lord now, went into several Nazi concentration camps during World War II. Rachmiel was Jewish and he would sneak into the camps and declare the Gospel and then sneak back out. He prayed with many of his Jewish brethren who received Yeshua as their Messiah before they were murdered: some the very next day after he was there! One night he slept in a coffin to escape the Nazis. >>> I have placed a link to his testimony at the bottom of these shownotes. <<< I had the privilege to be in his home several times and to have wonderful fellowship with him. Rachmiel knew the importance of the BLOOD of Jesus.

Do not worry about any generational curses or curses from the bloodline of your relatives and forefathers. BREAK THEM with the BLOOD of CHRIST! Do not fear about some witch or someone placing a curse on you … fear is a tool of the enemy. The Holy Bible says, The curse causeless shall NOT come. If you have done something wrong then confess it to God, ask for forgiveness and cover yourself with the HOLY BLOOD of CHRIST.

You are God’s property and the BLOOD of Christ is your COVERING if you will declare it so in faith. Enjoin the blood of the covenant. Instruct THE BLOOD to be applied to yourself and situations BY FAITH. Prohibit the enemy and his people or demons from performing an action against you or your loved ones by your SPOKEN injunction of FAITH. It is a legal injunction purchased by the Lord Jesus Christ on the cross and imposed by your faith. ATTACH The Blood, JOIN The Blood, IMPOSE The Blood to yourself, your loved ones, and your situation.

Request of the Father in Heaven to cover you and your situation with the BLOOD of CHRIST. In the name of Jesus charge verbally the enemy AND his power to be broken off your life and in your situation. It is a direct command with authority. You have the POWER in the name of JESUS to exercise authoritative or dominating control or influence over the devil and his works of darkness. Jesus purchased this power for you, and commissioned you with this apostolic power to go:

1. Preach and teach the Good News;

2. Heal the sick, and

3. Cast out demons.

Be FREE from doubt; believe in the abilities and power the Lord Jesus has purchased for you by His death and resurrection!

You have been granted this power inherently by THE BLESSING from the administrative unit of the throne of Heaven. This is POWER delegated from Heaven to you! The blessings of Abraham are yours. You rule as a king in life through Jesus Christ.

Baruch haba b’Shem Adonai.

DESCRIPTION OF THIS TEACHING

There are several different reasons WHY you should want to listen to the Holy Spirit. However, the MAIN reason is that the LORD wants to give you a message for direction, protection or enablement. And, sometimes―if not many times―the message will be for someone else.

Some people may NOT be able to listen to―or discern―the voice of the Spirit. Or, they may NOT want to listen to the voice of the Spirit due to rebellion or living in sin. Therefore, the LORD may send you a message via His Spirit to relay to the other person.

In my experience the message is usually given for specific knowledge in an area where help or advice is needed: in my life or in the lives of others.

The principles of God are timeless and transfer … and if we are students of God’s Word and have the knowledge of Proverbs we are able to navigate the problems and challenges of life. But when situations arise that are not clearly and specifically defined―as in ministry strategy or spiritual warfare or dream interpretation―then we need a “specific” word from the LORD.

Many people read the Holy Bible, but they are NOT listening to the Holy Spirit. God wants us to apply His Word to our lives. This is where listening to the Spirit brings success, victory and accurate direction.

LISTENING TO THE SPIRIT
DIRECTION AND HELP
~ A MIRACLE PODCAST PRODUCTION ~

INTRODUCTION

Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, has come, he will guide you into all truth:
for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak:
and he will show you things to come.”
Jesus: John 16:13

One of the Holy Spirit’s assignments is to glorify Christ. When you receive direction, help and enablement, Christ is glorified in your victorious life and testimony thereof: by your word and your lifestyle. The Holy Spirit guides you into ALL truth; spiritual, business, family, prophetic, physical, travel and relational truth.

Many people read the Holy Bible, but they are NOT listening to the Holy Spirit. God wants us to apply His Word to our lives. This is where listening to the Spirit brings success, victory and accurate direction.

As you become attuned―skilled―in listening to the Spirit, you will begin to notice that sometimes shortly after you receive a message you will experience a confirmation. For example, [I recently had this happen] if you receive a message about advice you would give a person, that person may contact you not long after and ask you for advice concerning the same (not knowing that you have already heard from God concerning them or their situation).

EXAMPLES

Sometimes listening to the Holy Spirit will be synonymous with the gift of prophecy. For example, one time after a large seminar I was conducting in Chicago a lady came up to me and said, “I have two wombs …”

I had already finished praying with people and I was really wanting to go to the place where I was to stay and go to bed. When the lady said, “I have two wombs …” my first thought was, “I must have preached past the anointing.” (I wanted to be anywhere but there.) What the lady said in full was this, “I have two wombs. If I conceive in the one womb the life will live, but if I conceive in the other (womb) the life will die. Do you have a word for me?”

Instantly―without thinking about it―I said to her, “You will have a son. He will live, and his name will be Samuel.”

When I was in Chicago about a year later I met little Samuel.

In similar manner, listening to the Spirit may sometimes by synonymous with the Word of Knowledge. For sure―if you operate in the gifts of the Spirit like Prophecy and the Word of Knowledge―you definitely need to be listening to the Holy Spirit. Study my book, How to Receive God’s Power with Gifts of the Spirit.

But there are times that God wants to give you a message for yourself and it may be just for reflection, or to meditate thereon. He may want you to think about what you would do in a certain situation that may be coming up in the future and you do NOT know about it yet―or, the complete details have not dovetailed together yet―and may not for quite some time.

PURPOSE OF LISTENING

You have to realize that God is for you. As in the gifts of the Holy Spirit, the motive for listening to the Spirit should be to edify, improve, deliver, make whole or provide intelligence. Thank God, He did not leave us here without the tools and weapons we need to operate in power and victory … and especially as we progress into the End Times.

Realize this: we are at the entrance to the End Times. If the Early Church―or Messianic Synagogue―needed the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the five fold ministries of Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher as laid out in Ephesians 4:11, how much more do we need them today? And, how much more will the followers of Messiah Jesus need them as we progress further along into the End Times.

PREREQUISITES TO LISTENING

We need to start our day with the Word of God. We need to be students of the Word of God. “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God.” (Romans 10:17) So the Word of God is the channel through which the activities of the Holy Spirit operate. When we have the Word of God in us―and operate based upon the Word of God―we hear (from God … from His Spirit). And when we hear from God, faith rises and MIRACLES happen.

But remember also, this is all predicated upon love. “Faith works by love.” (Galatians 5:6)

The Word of God is the channel though which faith flows, and love is the activator which triggers faith.

HOW WILL YOU KNOW

If you are living for God, then give God the benefit of the doubt. I have seen many MIRACLES since I learned to give God the benefit of the doubt. If you’re NOT sure the message is from God, then check to make sure it does NOT conflict with Scripture. If it does NOT conflict with Scripture, then ask God for a confirmation that is clear and concise. NOTE: If you are “seasoned” in listening to the Holy Spirit then you probably won’t require a confirmation.

We should NOT be surprised that the LORD works this way in addition to His many other modes of communication. We read of Him doing this throughout Bible in both the Tanakh (Old Testament) and the Brit Chadashah (New Testament). God has NOT changed. “For I am the LORD; I do not change.” (Malachi 3:6)

It’s people who have not changed that corrupt His program. People who have never seen healing will tell you that God does not heal. People who have never seen miracles will tell you that MIRACLES do not happen anymore. People who do NOT believe in Apostles or Prophets operating today will tell you that those offices ceased after the Early Messianic Synagogue. However, to say that would be to prove ignorance―or, folly―as that would mean that the Scripture in Ephesian 4:11 has been rescinded: And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers.” No more pastors, teachers and evangelists either!

GOD WANTS TO COMMUNICATE

Also, realize that the LORD wants to communicate with people more than we do. And, He does NOT want his messages of direction and help to be cryptic or hard to understand. It amazes me how many people have never read the Holy Bible completely. Here’s the greatest communication to mankind and they treat it like a magazine. My friend, get the Word inside you and YOU will begin to hear God. Start your day with it and end your day with it. I made a rule for my life years ago: “No Bible … no breakfast.”

The day is coming when the world government and the world religious system will destroy Bibles … including YOURS if you’re still here. Then YOU will need to listen to the Spirit … and it may be too late.

The Holy Spirit will guide you into ALL truth as you listen to Him.

Here are THREE resources to help you: “New Testament Bible Studies”“Prophecy, Transition & Miracles … and “How To Receive God’s Power with Gifts of the Spirit.”

THE PASSOVER – PART 7 OF 7 – CONCLUSION

One more thing you will find in every Jewish home at the Passover table is an EMPTY chair, some unleavened bread, and a cup of wine. But, no one uses the chair, touches the plate, or drinks from the wine. The question may be asked, “For whom is the chair, the plate, and the cup waiting?” The answer would be, “The chair, the plate, and the cup are waiting for Elijah, or the Coming One.” For every Jew is eagerly awaiting for Elijah that night, who is to announce and usher in the coming of the Messiah. [Malachi 4:5-6]

Just before the close of the Passover supper, which lasts until midnight, the oldest child arises from the table, goes to the door, and opens it for Elijah to make his entrance. There is a moment of expectancy, and the head of the house recites: “Thou God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Long have we waited for your promise. We beseech you now to send your anointed, whom You have promised, the Son of David. Have mercy upon your people Israel. Gather us according to your Word and we shall be Your people and You will delight in us as of old. Behold all things are ready and we wait.”

After a few minutes of waiting, the door is closed, and the head of the house recites: “How long, oh LORD, how long? Will Your anger not be turned away from Your people and will You have mercy and restore us to Your favor? Behold our suffering! We are scattered among the nations. They mock us, saying, ‘Where is your God? Where is the promise of His coming?’ We grow faint, yet we hope. Lord, our God, may it please You to gather Your people speedily, restore us to Your favor, at least next year may we celebrate this feast with you in Jerusalem, Your own habitation.”

It is a sad thing that many Jewish people should still be waiting, not knowing that Yeshua, their Messiah, has already come. Just as the Jewish apostles went out into all the world telling the goyim (the gentiles) the Good News of salvation, so you and I are to tell the Jewish people today the story of Jesus and His love: that He came 2000 years ago as the true PASSOVER LAMB, to redeem us with His BLOOD. Although the Lord Jesus asks us (rather, commanded us) to do this, very few believers in Jesus obey His command.

I preached in a large mission in Philadelphia which was run by a wonderful Jewish brother named Abraham Mazer. One day a Jewish woman came to a certain mission to hear what the Jewish believer had to say. It was Passover time and he told his people that Messiah had come and given His precious BLOOD for the salvation of both Jews and Gentiles. The woman left the mission before the service was over, but a few days later the Jewish brother learned who the woman was and where she lived. He went to see her and told her that Yeshua was our Passover lamb, giving His life for the sins of the whole world.

The woman then told Jewish man that she had had such good son. Her son loved her so much and all he wanted was to make his poor mother happy. Her son had been out of work for a long time. When he was finally called to come to work at a department store, he did not have enough clothes to dress warmly for the job. It was winter and he took a cold; a few days later developed pneumonia and died. Tears were streaming down her face as she said to the Jewish believer, “Why didn’t you come before? My son would have believed, he was such a son!”

Millions of Jewish graves are saying to you and to me, “Why didn’t you come before?!”

THE PASSOVER – PART 6 OF 7

Because the Apostle Paul (Rabbi Shaul) wrote: “Messiah our Passover is sacrificed for us,” there was no more need to kill a Passover lamb. Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus the Anointed One) was “the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world”. To ever remember His great sacrifice, the early followers of Messiah put the shinbone upon the Passover table. They used the unbroken shinbone because it was also written of Him, “no bone of His shall be broken.” The little piece of matzo hidden away on a high shelf was to the early Jewish Messianic believers a picture and remembrance of Messiah’s ascension into Heaven; bringing it down the next year reminded them of the promise of His coming again.

The use of the wine also comes from the Jewish believers in Messiah Yeshua. It is essential for the Passover because Jesus took the cup, gave thanks and gave it to the disciples. The wine must be red, resembling blood, because Jesus said: “This is my blood of the New Testament, shed for many for the remission of sins.” And everyone must partake of it because Jesus said: “Drink you ALL, of it.”

And what about this mysterious word “APHIKOMEN“? This is not a Hebrew word; rather it is a Greek word and reads exactly as the Jewish people pronounce it. What is the meaning of this mysterious word “Aphikomen?” It looks like a Greek word. Most scholars are agreed that it is, but different opinions exist as to its meaning. Some say it comes from “Epikomos” and means “dessert”. But that does not seem to be correct, since a great deal of violence had to be perpetrated on the word “Epikomos” in order to turn it into “Aphikomen.” But there is another Greek word, which gives a full and satisfactory explanation, and where etymological violence is not at all necessary to give it meaning. It reads exactly as our Aphikomen. What does it mean? According to the Greek lexicon it means, “I CAME.”

Who came? The One, obviously, whom the broken Matzo represents, namely, the Lord Yeshua, the True Pesach! [1]


[1] The Mystery in the Passover Seder: The story that could not be forgotten. By Solomon Birnbaum.


Imagine the setting that night in the upper room when Yeshua Himself was participating in the Passover, the very ceremony that prophesied His death! The One whom the Passover had promised to every age of believers was keeping the feast himself and the next day he would keep it literally: not with symbols … but with His body on the cross-stake! His blood for men’s souls instead of the blood on the doorposts.

Jesus was … and still is … saying: “The Angel of Death who spared the Children of Israel because He saw the blood of the lamb on the doors of their houses, will spare you from eternal death because he will see My BLOOD on the doors of your hearts though faith! As your fathers were delivered from the bondage of Egypt, so you will be delivered from the bondage of sin.”

It is interesting how the “Lord’s Supper” became the core of the Jewish Passover. The first Messianic believers were almost all Jews in the early days of the Christian era. Every one of the first disciples of Yeshua was Jewish, with the possible exception of Luke. It has been estimated that almost 1,000,000 Jews became followers of the Lord Jesus in the first century AD.

The old time synagogue in the first century accepted the Messianic Jew (the followers of Jesus). In the makeup of the synagogue in those days there were Pharisees, Sadducees, Hellenists, Essenes, and many other groups of Jewish belief systems. So when large numbers of Jews began to accept Yeshua as Messiah, they were still allowed to stay in the synagogue. They were known as Nazarenes, and were given respect and attention.

Now while the other Jews celebrated the Passover as instituted by Moses, Jewish believers in Messiah celebrated the same occasion with bread and wine, depicting in the observance the suffering, death and resurrection of the Lord. There were TWO (2) KINDS of Passover being celebrated, and as more and more Jews became followers of Messiah, there were more and more Jews who kept the Passover the NEW way: the way it is observed today!!

With the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple in AD 70, the Old Testament Passover as commanded by Moses ceased. The only Passover observance, which survived within the Jewish nation, was that of the Messianic Hebrew followers of Jesus. The Messianic Passover, therefore, became the celebration of ALL Israel: the MAIN features of which were the bread (matzo cakes) and the wine.

Every year during the Passover Seder, when the Jews partake of the bread (matzo) and the wine, they are unconsciously celebrating the fact that Messiah’s body was broken for them, His blood shed for them, and that He is going to return to set up His Kingdom where He will celebrate with us the Passover!

THE PASSOVER – PART 5 OF 7

It must be evident to you now that the description of the Passover service mentioned in Parts 1 thru 4 of this study are NOT mentioned in the Passover instructions recorded for us by Moses in Exodus Chapter 12. In this story there is NO mention of wine, or four (4) special glasses of wine, or an egg. Instead of a dry shinbone, the main feature of the original Jewish Passover was the roast lamb. And certainly there is no mention of three (3) special unleavened cakes and the ceremony of burying or hiding away half of the middle cake and bringing it forth at the end of the feast.

This marks a radical change from the feast initiated by Moses. When and how did this change come about? Nowhere in the writings of Moses, nor in those of the Rabbis during the 1500 years that followed the days of Moses, is there any question of wine as being necessary for the keeping of the Passover, or that it MUST BE RED! This presents three (3) QUESTIONS:

  1. Who substituted the bread for the Passover lamb?
  2. Who made the wine an essential part, and why should it be RED like BLOOD? And;
  3. Why does the Jew today – while eating of the middle cake called APHIKOMEN – believe that he is eating the Passover lamb?

Although the Jewish people do not realize it, the origin of the use of the bread comes from the Brit Chadashah (the New Testament). The Jewish followers of Messiah made the change during the immediate years after the Lord’s resurrection. It is because the Lord Jesus took bread and said: “This is my body.” It is He who gave His disciples bread and told them, as they were eating it, to believe that they were eating the sacrifice of the Passover.

The half piece of cake called APHIKOMEN is wrapped in a cloth and hidden, because when Jesus died on the cross His disciples took His body down, wrapped it in grave clothes and placed it in the tomb. The APHIKOMEN is later brought forth from its hiding place because on the third day God raised Jesus from the grave.

The APHIKOMEN is eaten as the last act of the Passover feast because the institution of the Lord’s supper took place at the close of the meal in the upper room in Jerusalem. The members of the family share it because the followers of Messiah were regarded as the family of God. Jesus (Yeshua) is the bread of life to all that believe in Him!

Every single act done to the middle cake by the Jewish people today is descriptive of what happened to the Lord Jesus. It is therefore He whom the APHIKOMEN represents. And all the three (3) cakes are really symbolic of the Holy Trinity, the threefold revelation of the Godhead: God, the Father and Creator … God, the Savior or redeemer … and God, the Holy Spirit. The middle cake, which represents the Lord Jesus (Yeshua, the Messiah), is the one that is broken. He was broken and He was crucified.

Notice, also, the fashion of the Passover cakes: with the stripes and holes pierced in them. There was NO New Testament during the early church years, and only a few copies of the TANAKH (Old Testament Hebrew scriptures) in the hands of the leaders. The early followers of Messiah wanted to impress and perpetuate the story of Messiah Yeshua for their children and children’s children … and generations to follow. They wanted to teach them that Yeshua HaMashiach was the One Who fulfilled Isaiah 53: “Surely he has borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows; yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed.”

THE PASSOVER – PART 4 OF 7

On the Passover table we find a number of interesting things, the meaning of which I will explain as we go along. There are dishes of grated apple, bitter herbs, unleavened bread, salty water, and an egg.

The grated apple turns its color into red representing the clay that the Israelites used to make bricks in Egypt. The bitter herbs are to remind them of the bitterness suffered as slaves under Pharaoh. (Jewish people usually make a mixture of bitter herbs into a paste and make little sandwiches for everyone to eat, including the little children, to impress upon them the bitterness they suffered in Egypt.

The unleavened bread is to remind them of the haste with which they had to depart from the land of slavery. The dish of salty water, in which the sop is dipped, represents the tears shed in Egypt, and also the Red Sea. This is also called the dish of reconciliation, or forgiveness. This dish was given by our Lord first to Judas (who was betrayed him) for Jesus was still willing and ready to forgive if Judas would have turned from his evil.

The egg is a “type” or picture of the grave and resurrection. Looking upon this egg the Jews are reminded that we are mortal and will someday be placed in the grave; but because there is life in the egg, they have hope of resurrection from the grave.

Everything on the table has a double meaning. Firstly, it points back to Egypt, to the deliverance of the forefathers from the land of bondage. Secondly, it points forward to the coming of the Messiah who will deliver them from their present bondage and provide them with an earthly kingdom.

No lamb is found on the Passover table, but only a bone, a shin bone: a pure lower unbroken joint of the front leg of the lamb is used. On the table at each place are glasses or cups of wine, and in the center of the table are four (4) special glasses or cups. Kosher rules specify that the wine must be red. The two glasses on the right are called “The cup of Elijah” and “The cup of Blessing”. The two cups on the left are called “The cup of Redemption” and “The Cup of Glory”. The two cups on the right point back to Egypt; the two on the left point forward to the final deliverance of the Jews and Messianic glory.

These four cups of wine also represent the fourfold promise, as recorded in Torah, Exodus 6:6: “Wherefore, say unto the children of Israel, ‘I am the LORD and will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you from your enemies, and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with judgment’.”

At the head of the table, in a beautiful cover, are three (3) special Passover cakes. During the early part of the feast, the MIDDLE one, the second of the three, is broken in halves. On half is partaken by all the members of the family at the beginning of the meal. The other half is treated with special regard and reverently wrapped in a cloth and hidden away, or buried … usually between the two pillows on which the head of the family reclines … until the end of the meal.

The half, which is hidden away, is no longer considered just unleavened bread. It is called “APHIKOMEN’” and symbolizes the PASSOVER LAMB itself. The Feast and ceremony of the Passover last until midnight, when at the very last act of the Feast, the cake called APHIKOMEN is brought forth and eaten of by all the members of the family. It is, however, given out so that one small piece is left over, which is put away on the highest shelf in the house until the next year.

The customary explanation for the presence of the three cakes is that they represent the three groups in Israel: the Priests, the Levites, and the Israelites. But if that is the case, why is the middle cake broken, wrapped and hidden away (or buried) and then brought forth from the hiding place and shared among the members of the family? Why, also, is it called by the mysterious name APHIKOMEN? What has all this to do with the Levites?

In our next lesson on the Passover, Part 5, we will find the answer!

DESCRIPTION:

This is Part 3 of a seven (7) part series to help you understand the Biblical roots of the Passover.

HOW did the changes come about and WHY? You will have a deeper understanding and love for your LORD after this study!



THE PASSOVER – PART 3 OF 7

The blood of the Savior’s brow reminds us of the blood on the top of the Passover door in Egypt. The blood on his nail-pierced hands reminds us of the blood on the side posts of the door. (Indeed the Israelites made a cross as the blood was placed on the door in Egypt.) Yeshua was our “Passover Lamb” who gave His life to save us from our sins. Truly, the “destroyer” will pass over us when we have the BLOOD of Christ applied to our hearts, families, and homes by FAITH!

There are still many Jewish people who do not know that the Lord Jesus is their Messiah and Savior: the true PASSOVER LAMB sacrificed for the sins of the world.

The days, in fact, the weeks before the Passover are busy ones for the Jewish people. The houses are cleaned from to[ to bottom. All dishes are scoured and thoroughly cleansed. The idea is to cleanse the leaven out of their houses. Leaven is a substance (as yeast) used to produce fermentation (as in dough). Leaven, in the passage pertaining to Passover in Exodus Chapter 12, represents sin. In other places in the Bible leaven stand for the multiplying effect of the kingdom of God.

The Apostle Paul had this in mind when he wrote to the Corinthians (1 Co. 5:6-8). “Your glorying is not good. Know you not that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? Purge out therefore the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, as you are unleavened. For even Christ [Messiah] our Passover is sacrificed for us; therefore, let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.”

Those who can afford it will buy new dishes to take the place of the old. Even new clothes are bought for the family. The day before the Passover, crumbs of bread are put around in several prominent places of the house which the father and son sweep together into a wooden spoon. The son holds a candle while the father, with a little feather brush, sweeps the crumbs into the spoon. Then he takes a piece of cloth which he wraps around the spoon and the brush, and keeps them from Thursday until Friday when he builds a fire in a lonely spot when he burns the spoon with the crumbs. During this time he recites: “AND THE REDEEMER SHALL COME TO ZION AND TAKE AWAY UNGODLINESS FROM JACOB.” The spoon is called the “Crumb bearer” and pictures the Messiah, the “sin bearer”.

The Passover is celebrated in the home. After an early evening service in the synagogue, at sundown, the family gathers around the table, which is beautifully decorated. There is a place at the table for every for every member of the family including even the smallest child, for everyone is expected to take part in the feast and remain together from sunset until midnight.

The very first thing doe before any feast is the lighting of the candles. This is done by the woman of the house: one of the three (3) religious acts which is expected of the Jewish woman. The father, or head of the house, is dressed in a white coat and cap and reclines on two (2) pillows. Usually, the youngest boy leans on his chest, just as John leaned on Jesus’ chest.

The feast is begun by the head of the house saying a prayer, or benediction. “I AM NOW READY TO PREPARE AND FULFILL THE PRECEPT OF DRINKING THE FIRST CUP OF THE FOUR CUPS, FOR THE UNITING OF THE HOLY ONE, BLESSED BE HE, AND THE SHECHINAH, THROUGH THE ONE THAT IS HIDDEN AND CONCEALED.” The One “hidden and concealed” refers to the Messiah concerning Whom it is taught that: He was to come, to disappear, and then come again.

The boy who leans on the father’s bosom then asks a number of questions why this night differs from all other nights. And the father answers: “This is the night in which God, Lord of Hosts, redeemed and brought out our forefathers from the land of Egypt and from bondage.” [Deuteronomy 6:20-24]

DESCRIPTION:

This is Part 2 of a seven (7) part series to help you understand the Biblical roots of the Passover. Also, to help you understand WHY and HOW the Passover being celebrated today is different from that given to Moses in the instructions by God in Exodus Chapter 12. HOW did the changes come about and WHY? You will have a deeper understanding and love for your LORD after this study!



THE PASSOVER – PART 2 OF 7

Messiah Yeshua had told his disciples several times of His coming death; that He would go up to Jerusalem and there suffer many things from the Roman rulers and the chief priests, and then die. He told them that on the third day He would rise from the dead.

This made the disciples very sad, and they could hardly believe that such things should happen to Jesus. They thought that He would soon reign as a great king over the whole world and set up His beautiful and glorious kingdom of peace. They had learned much from the Hebrew Scriptures, the Tanakh, with the Lord’s instruction; they hoped they would have high places in the kingdom. Yeshua knew that it was the Father’s will for Him to die on the cross, the stake, for the sins of the world before the kingdom would be established.

Yeshua (Jesus) and His disciples went up to Jerusalem just a few days before the great holy day [holiday] called PASSOVER. Luke 22:7 in the Brit Chadashah contains a synopsis of what happened during this time:

Then came the day of unleavened bread when the PASSOVER must be killed. Jesus sent Peter and John ahead, saying to them, “Go and prepare us the PASSOVER, that we may eat.” And they said to Jesus, “Where will you that we prepare?” And Jesus said unto them, ”Go into the city, and as you enter, there shall a man meet you, carrying a pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he enters.” Jesus told them to tell the man, the head of the house, “The Master says to you, ”Where is the guestroom where I shall eat the PASSOVER with my disciples?'” He shall show you a large upper room furnished; there make ready for the PASSOVER. The disciples went and found just as Jesus had told them, and they prepared for the PASSOVER.

Did you ever wonder how the disciples could find or identify this man among all the thousands of people flooding Jerusalem at this time? It was easy: Jesus said he would be carrying a pitcher of water! It was the women’s job to get the drinking water from several fountains outside of Jerusalem.

Every year, true Jews who believe in God, and many Christians, keep this great memorial feast of the PASSOVER. I baptized my youngest son, my seventh (7th) child, during PASSOVER (after the Seder meal). We filled up the bathtub and when he came up out of the water he was speaking in another language: the biblical experience of tongues. He received the baptism in the Holy Spirit as described in the New Testament (Brit Chadashah) in Acts 2:38.

The Jews can never forget the night when G-d, with His mighty power, delivered His people from slavery and the cruel king, Pharaoh, of Egypt. God sent one plague after another upon the Egyptians to punish them for their cruel treatment of the Israelites. More and more Pharaoh hardened his heart and would not let them go. Finally, God told Moses He would send one more plague. God would pass throughout the land of Egypt and the oldest child in every home would die, but He would make a way for all the Israelites (and whoever obeyed Him) to be saved.

Each family of the children of Israel was to take PERFECT LAMB and kill it. They were then to put the BLOOD over the top and on each side of the door of their house. When the LORD [Y-H-W-H] passed through the land of Egypt he would NOT kill any in those houses who had the BLOOD upon their doors. Exodus 12:12 in the Torah tells us: “And the BLOOD shall be to you for a token upon the houses where you are: and when I see the BLOOD, I will PASS OVER you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.”

“For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when He sees the BLOOD upon the lintel [top door piece, or beam], and on the two side posts, the LORD will PASS OVER the door, and will NOT allow the destroyer to come into your houses to smite you.” [Exodus 12:23]

At midnight there was an awful cry heard throughout all the land of Egypt. “And it came to pass that at midnight the LORD smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle.” Only in the houses of Israel, where the BLOOD was on the door, was none dead!

Every day I speak the BLOOD of Messiah, God’s LAMB, over myself, my children clear to the end of my seed line, my family and relatives, my associates, those near and dear to me, plus my properties and whatever or whomever God has placed me over or given into my hands.

Every year at PASSOVER time there is a story told by Jewish people when they keep the PASSOVER feast. The story is NOT in the Bible but is handed down to subsequent generations. It is about one boy of the Israelites who was almost killed. This boy was the oldest son of the family and he knew what would happen if the BLOOD would not be put on the door. There was much excitement in every home and all were busy doing something: killing the little lamb, preparing and roasting it to eat. There were the vegetables to be made ready, the bread to be baked, and there was the packing to be done because everyone had to be ready to leave Egypt at midnight.

About 15 minutes before midnight the boy went to his father and asked, “Father, has the BLOOD been put on the door?” The father being very busy told the boy that it had been done and he should not trouble him with unnecessary questions. The boy asked the second time, and again the father assured him the BLOOD was on the door. But the boy just couldn’t forget what would happen to him if the BLOOD was not on the door, and 5 minutes before midnight he came once more to his father to ask if the BLOOD was really on the door.

The father now realized that the boy was frightened, so he took him to the door to assure him. To the father’s surprise the BLOOD was NOT on the door. Quickly the father looked for the BLOOD and found it in a bowl ready for use. He made a little brush of hyssop, rushed to the door, and applied the BLOOD to the door of their home. They hurried inside the house, closed the door, and just then “Swish-sh-sh” and the death angel PASSED OVER the house.

THE PASSOVER – PART 1 OF 7

To the Christian it is most impressive, and it hardly can be less so to the Jew, to notice how very much Christianity and Judaism have in common. Christianity is NOT a religion which is altogether different from that of Judaism. Christianity is the direct outgrowth and development of Jewish life and history as recorded in the Tanakh, the Hebrew Scriptures (referred to by many as the Old Testament).

Jesus the Messiah, Yeshua HaMashiach, came not to bring a new religion, but to fulfill the promises made to the fathers: Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. He came to purchase eternal redemption with His precious blood for BOTH Jews and Gentiles. When the Christian sees that the Brit Chadasha (Hebrew New Testament) is the fulfillment of the Tanakh (Hebrew Scriptures) … and when he sees Yeshua as the Son of David … the One of whom Moses and the prophets did speak … he has a reason to have close kinship with Israel.

The PASSOVER FEAST reveals the entire plan of redemption designed by G-d for purchasing mankind that was separated from Him in the Garden of Eden.

Following are interesting facts concerning the Passover, from Dr. J. Hoffman Cohn’s booklet, A Passover Trilogy.

Only the PASSOVER in Egypt was observed exactly according to the instructions given in Exodus 12. The blood was never again put on the doors of the houses, and instead of being in great haste and ready for travel, the people now observe the Feast from sunset to midnight, with great leisure, profuse praise, and thanksgiving to God for the miraculous deliverance from slavery in Egypt.

When we come to New Testament times, we notice that very definite practices other than we read in Exodus 12 center around the PASSOVER FEAST. The TIME of its observance was fixed in accordance with the full moon after the first day of Spring. This was done so that the people had moonlight to travel by. However, in those days there were no almanacs or calendars giving the exact waxing and waning of the moon. The Sanhedrin, or governing body of the people had to be guided by the testimony of two witnesses.

These men were appointed to go to the highest mountaintop and there scan the sky for the first sign of the new moon. When the first sign appeared, they built bonfires on the top of the mountain. Then the people up and down the land of Judea passed on these signals by building bonfires from mountaintop to mountaintop until all the land was notified that the official witnesses had seen the first sign of the new moon.

Every Jew knew that he should count from that time of the bonfire signals a period of 10 days, and that on the 10th day he was to select the LAMB, and then there were four (4) more days to the actual time of killing the lamb. These four (4) additional days were ample time for each family to examine the LAMB minutely to see if there was any blemish. If such a blemish should be found, the LAMB was to be rejected and another one taken in its place. So it was that the Lord Jesus offered Himself, four (4) days before the PASSOVER, as the LAMB OF GOD that takes away the sin of the world.

It was not on a Sunday, however, but on Monday, the 10th of Nisan, when Messiah made what is now known as the as the triumphal entry into Jerusalem by the way of the “Sheep Gate.” It was at the very time the Jews were selecting the LAMBS for the coming PASSOVER. Yeshua challenged the nation: “Which of you convinces me of sin?” [John 8:46]

There was abundant opportunity to find fault, blemishes, or sin in the Messiah Jesus … four (4) days! However the final verdict came from the lips of Pilate when he cried out to the crowd, “I find no fault in this man!” [Luke 23:4] The Lord Jesus was the LAMB, without spot and without blemish. In Him all the Old Testament types were fulfilled.

Another interesting fact is: it was at sundown that the Lord Jesus observed the last PASSOVER with His disciples, although the official date was a day later. This may seem a contradiction but it isn’t. There were many devout Jews who were so faithful in their desire to serve God and obey His commandments that they often leaned over backwards – went to extremes – to make sure that they did not break “ONE JOT OR TITTLE” of the Law. These devout men were fearful, lest the witnesses might possibly have made a mistake by one day, and so cause the PASSOVER to begin a day over time.

It was therefore the practice, which was legally permitted, that such Jews could properly celebrate the opening night of the PASSOVER one-day ahead of the time officially set. However, they were NOT allowed to eat the PASSOVER LAMB until sunset of Passover evening, the actual time fixed by the Sanhedrin. To this very day the Jews observe two PASSOVER suppers (Seder).

So it was quite proper that our Lord and His disciples partook of the PASSOVER on the evening before, but there was NO LAMB. And how wonderfully divine was this plan, for on the NEXT DAY – the official day – the Lord Messiah Yeshua would offer Himself as the SPOTLESS LAMB slain from the foundation of the world … once for ALL TIME … to make atonement for the sins of the world.
