This Passover ~ Holy Week 7

And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer.   Luke 22:15

Not “the” Passover but “this” Passover-the last Passover before the cross.  The Lord fully knew what awaited Him after the supper; “before I suffer”.  He knew all about the arrest, the unrighteous trial, the mockery, scourging, thorns, cross and death that loomed before Him.  Yet there would be resurrection and joy too.  But before all of that, He earnestly desired this last supper with His own.  What about us?  Our Lord is alive and today may we say to Him, “Lord, with desire have I desired to eat this supper, to remember you, thank you, and worship you.  -Carl Knott

Break ye the bread and pour the wine, as ye have seen your Master do; This body and this blood of Mine, is broken and shed for you.  -John Pierpont

Because of God’s love, we are never truly alone.

INSIGHT: The circumstances that took place on the night of Jesus’s betrayal seemed to be confused, chaotic, and out of control. But our Lord’s measured words in facing His betrayer showed His understanding of the big picture of God’s sovereign plan. Without the cross we could not be redeemed.     Dennis Fisher

Jesus so loved us that He came to willingly suffer and die at the cross, so that such evil sinners like Barabbas and me might be saved by His grace and mercy.  – Dan O Carnrite

Charles Haddon Spurgeon ~ The Supremacy Of Jesus Christ

A quote from Charles Spurgeon on the unmatched-supremacy of the gospel of Jesus Christ:

Oh! down, down, down, with everything else, but up, up, up, with the cross of Christ! Down with your baptism, and your masses, and your sacraments! Down with your priestcraft, and your rituals, and your liturgies! Down with your fine music, and your pomp, and your robes, and your garments, and all your ceremonials. But up, up, up, with the doctrine of the naked cross, and the expiring Saviour. Let the voice ring throughout the whole world, “Look unto Me and live!” There is life in a look at the Crucified One!

~Charles Spurgeon (Christ, The Glory Of His People 826.464)

Where Is Solomon’s Temple? Where Is Golgotha? A Paradigm Shift In Archaeology…

Chuck Missler has been working with Bob Cornuke over the past couple of years, attempting to ascertain the genuine sites of both Solomon’s Temple and Mount Calvary / Golgotha, where Jesus Christ was crucified.  Chuck Missler is very well known in Christian circles, affiliated with Koinonia Institute.  Chuck excels in several areas in Christendom, most noteworthy in Bible prophecy.  Bob Cornuke has been referred to as the Indiana Jones, from a Biblical / Christian perspective, in modern archaeology.  In his career, he has pursued the sites of the real Mount Sinai, the Ark of the Covenant, Noah’s Ark, the four anchors of Paul’s shipwreck off Malta, and most recently Solomon’s Temple / Golgotha.  The following You Tubes discuss the recent joint ventures of Chuck Missler and Bob Cornuke, as they pursue the real sites of Solomon’s Temple and Golgotha (where Jesus was crucified):

Doug Stauffer   ~   Learn To Study The Bible In One Hour

All of us have heard negative statements concerning the Bible, like the following:

The Bible contains contradictions!

We should not take the Bible so literally!

In reality, the Bible contains no contradictions at all.  There is no private interpretation.

God’s answer is very simple…  “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”  (John 8:32)

Four Questions

1)Who is right and who is wrong?  There are so many denominations and sects.

2)Can anyone know the truth for sure?  Yes.  “Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.”

3)Does God provide man with the answers?  Yes.  All of the answers are in the Bible.

4)Does God have a method of Bible study?

The cross is the center of Biblical teachings.  The rapture gives us great comfort but the Tribulation Period will be a day of peril.  the book of Romans declares the way of salvation.  John 3:16 can be used to lead someone to the Lord.

There are so many divisions in Christianity because everyone goes to the Bible with a private interpretation and we must stop doing this.

The number 7 is God’s number of completion.  “The seventh is the Sabbath of rest.”  Exodus 31:15  There are seven notes on a musical scale.  Seven days in a week.  The ark rested in the seventh month.  Genesis 8:4  God reveals patterns in the Bible and this helps us to understand even more.  God provided manna in advance and the people rested on the 7th day.  Exodus 16:30  The land was to rest in the 7th year.  Exodus 33:10-11  The cross, rapture and second coming, make a very simple chart of things to come.  Adam goes back 4004 years before the birth of Christ.  The Millennium is 1000 years and if the Lord deals in sevens, that would make the church age 2000 years.  We are living in the last days and perilous times shall come, and men shall be lovers of their own selves, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, and without natural affection.  In America we now have same sex marriage and the legalization of marijuana.  Where are we on the time line?  Church Age?  Gospels?  Readiness?  Old Testament?  Tribulation?  Millennium?  After The Second Coming?

Education will not get you to learn the Bible.  Dedication will help you learn the scriptures.  When you study say:  “God, you are right and I am wrong, show me where I am wrong.”  We learn more and change our teaching.

We are close to the rapture.  Keep looking up.  Keep waiting.  Stay busy.  Serve the Lord and live for Him.  Understanding prophecy ought to make us a peculiar people zealous of good works.  You are saved to be zealous of good works.  We have peace, contentment, joy and a relationship with God.

II Timothy 2:15  “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

Genesis through Malachi is the Old Testament.  Matthew through John are the Gospels.  Romans through Philemon is the Church Age.  Revelation is the Tribulation, Millennium and Eternity Future.  The Jews are prominent in the Old Testament.  The Gospel Accounts are about Jesus.  Acts is about the actions of the apostles, it is a history book and reveals the transition from Peter to Paul.  Acts starts with the Jews and ends up with the Gentiles.  It is a transition book.  Romans through Philemon are 13 epistles written by Paul!  Revelation covers the second coming, the millennium and eternity future.  Peter went to the Jews and Paul went to the Gentiles.  During the Tribulation the spokesmen will be the two witnesses (Moses and Elijah).  Jesus Christ will rule during the millennium.  Paul always went to the Jews first, then to the Gentiles.  Paul was a minister to the Gentiles- Romans 15:16.  The governmental form of communism received its’ philosophy from a distorted view of the early chapters of Acts.  Paul said to follow him as he follows Christ- I Corinthians 4:16.  The only contradiction in the Bible is when we privately interpret it.  There was a spokesman in every time throughout the Bible except during the time of the Judges when every man did that which was right in his own eyes.
