This week (a first!) starring Special Guest William (Bill) Boyington as the Seder Leader aka my husband. He had a his SECOND real Pesach Seder yesterday, and we had to share our experience with you... please enjoy the political incorrectness and the imperfection of two people sharing with YOU a BLESSED PESACH. Shalom Alacheim! with love, Shoshanna
Chametz etymologically means "hot" and "pressed", so the most accurate translation in English should be chametz = "baked bread". But "chametz", in reality, comes from a root which means "to be sour". So where YHWH says (Exodus 12:20) to eat nothing with chametz "in it" - it literally means the material from which the bread is made - the mixture, i.e., chametz! If you have the chametz - get rid of it, if you have the baked bread (which has chametz in it), get rid of that!
Don't think that I have come to abolish the Torah or the Prophets. I have come not to abolish but to complete. 18 Yes indeed! I tell you that until heaven and earth pass away, not so much as a yud or a stroke will pass from the Torah -- "Here is my servant, whom I support, my chosen one, in whom I take pleasure. I have put my Spirit on him; he will bring justice to the Goyim. 4 he will not weaken or be crushed until he has established justice on the earth, and the coastlands wait for his Torah.
Hebrews 12:25 See that you don't reject the One speaking! For if those did not escape who rejected him when he gave divine warning on earth, think how much less we will escape if we turn away from him when he warns from heaven.
The stories contained in the Scriptures are not only historical testaments to earth’s beginnings, but they are living parables for us to draw from today. Yeshua consistently used parables rather than direct commands when teaching the crowds, the leaders, or his talmidim. And since we know Torah is the picture of Yeshua, it follows that we should heed these writings in principle as well as action.
"For this is the covenant I will make with the house of Isra'el after those days," says ADONAI: "I will put my Torah within them and write it on their hearts; I will be their God, and they will be my people.
he said, "Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked I will return there. Yehovah gave; Yehovah took; blessed be the name of Yehovah."
Have you ever wondered why there's SO MUCH debate about "the name"? Lets explore Scriptures and see if there's a reason.
John 4:23 But the time is coming -- indeed, it's here now -- when the true worshipers will worship the Father spiritually and truly, for these are the kind of people the Father wants worshiping him. 24 God is spirit; and worshipers must worship him spiritually and truly."
Rich with details, the Scriptures give elaborate details of false prophets, and false messiahs. BUT, there's one thing I think you may have missed.
