Memorial 2021

 Memorial 2021 -- Thursday March 25, after Sundown

Commemoration of the Lord's Memorial, is rightly held at the start (sunset) of Nisan 13.
(The Jewish day runs from sunset to sunset)
For those of you who did not realize that Jesus held the occasion and died, on Nisan 13, you can research that proof in the scriptures, by using the search box on this Blog Main Page, 
Mark 14:12; 15:42-43; John 19:14,31,42

While the Passover lambs were being sacrificed for the sundown/Sabbath to come, Jesus was also dying on his torture stake 
(Luke 22:7; John 1:29;  1Cor. 5:7; John 19:9; Isa.53:7). 
That was the afternoon following the memorial [and the same Jewish day (sundown to sundown) as the Memorial / Day of Preparation / first day of the week of Unfermented Cakes - first day of Passover Week 
(Luke 22:1,8,13-15,19,29; Rev.5:9-10; Mark 14:12; 15:42-43)]. 
(Mark 14:12; 15:42-43; John 19:14,31,42)
Jesus was buried in a tomb, before the Passover Sabbath (Nisan 14), even began (John 19:31,33).

As far as calculating when Nisan 13 takes place during this year,
I will review with you, the procedure as follows...

The way in which Nisan is calculated, is to find out when the Spring Equinox occurs. 
I will calculate it for my area, but the calculation will translate around the globe.

For this year (2021), the Spring Equinox is Saturday, March 20 at 5:37 a.m..
Then go to the schedule of the new moon for each month in your area, 
(Google search)
and find the new moon that occurred BEFORE the Spring Equinox.
For 2021, that would be March 13 at 5:23 a.m.. The remainder of that day (5:23 am - sunset) belongs to the previous month.
[If the new moon occurs at an hour, after the sun has already set, then that 24 hour period (sunset to sunset) is still the last day of the last month. The fresh day, would start the following sunset... the first sunset after the New Moon has occurred.]

If there are more than 15 days between the previous new moon and the equinox, that new moon is considered the start of the last month of the year. Nisan would not begin, until the following new moon, which would occur after the equinox.
If there are less than 15 days between the previous new moon and the equinox, 
then the sunset following that new moon, is the start of Nisan 1.
March 13th is only 7 days prior to the equinox, so March 13 (after sunset) is the start of Nisan. Sundown on March 13, starts the first day of the first month (Nisan 1) of the new Jewish year.
Next, is to count 13 days from the starting evening of Nisan 1.
For my location, that brings the start of Nisan 13, to the sunset of Thursday March 25, 2021.
This is when I intend to partake. 
It is up to each individual, to decide what they will choose to do.
Nisan 1, runs from sunset on March 13 to sunset on March 14. Nisan 2 runs from sunset on March 14, to sunset March 15, and so on...(N3/ssM15),(N4/ssM16),(N5/ssM17),(N6/ssM18),(N7/ssM19),(N8/ssM20),(N9/ssM21),(N10/ssM22),(N11/ssM23),N12/ssM24),(N13/ssM25)

If you have received miraculous, scriptural proof of God's choosing you (Rom.8:16; Eph.4:4;  1Cor. 11:28-29) to belong to the Bride of Christ, and wish to partake with us (1Cor. 11:33), 
please contact me using the contact form in the right side column of this Main Page.

If you desire to gain more scriptural information about who should partake, there are many posts which address that questions, from many angles. I will provide a few links. If you would like more... Please use the search box.

Can the Genuine Anointed, recognize one another?

 At Acts 2:4 and 1Cor.3:16, we learn that the anointed have God's spirit, put within them 
(2Cor.1:22; 5:5; 1Cor.6:17; 12:13; Rom.5:5; Eph.2:18; 4:4; 1John3:24; Heb.8:10; Eze.37:14). 

Those who work for the Devil, also have a spirit, within them (see Ephesians 2:2). 
Please notice at 1Cor.12:7,10, what the holy spirit of God can enable an anointed one to do... it is a gift of the holy spirit... 
It reads; 
"10 to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another *discerning of spirits,* to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues." 
The holy spirit lets an anointed one, discern spirits/"distinguishing between spirits". 
That means, that this anointed person can discern, which spirit is inside a person. 
That anointed one can know, if another person has God's spirit (and the anointing that puts God's spirit inside them), or, 
if the spirit inside them is not from God.

Why could the world, not contain the books of Jesus? [] A Prophecy of Solomon

"I sometimes wonder about John 21:25- "and there are also many other things that Jesus did, which if they were written one by one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books, that would be written." . Perhaps some of these "things" may include a few answers to nagging questions the apostles pestered Jesus with."

When I read that verse, I reflect upon the reality that Jesus was the Tree of Life in Eden. 

He was the wellspring that reflected the mind of God (John4:10,14; 12:49; Ps.36:9; 2Pet.1:16). He said, "All that the Father has, is mine" (John16:15; 15:15; Matt.11:27). I'm sure that John21:25 was alluding to Jesus having a limitless resource of truth. His depiction of having hair, white as snow, reflects his wisdom 
(Rev.1:14; Job 12:12; 32:7; John1:1-2; Prov.8:23-25,26-28,29-31). 
Imagine the required intelligence needed, to create everything in the physical realm... various biospheres, our internal organs, the propagation and reproduction of living things, our consciousness, the microbiology of the soil.. it's endless (Rom.1:20; Ps.19:1; Jer.51:15)
Jesus is the source of wisdom for mankind 
(John1:3-4,9,14; 8:12; Matt.6:22; 1Thess.5:5,8-9). 

We ourselves cannot grasp the Father. But Jesus comes from the Fathers bosom (John1:18; Matt.11:27). 
Isa.40:13 asks, "Who can fathom the spirit of the Lord?". 
As 1Cor.2:16 reads; 
"16 for,
“Who has known the mind of the Lord
    so as to instruct him?”
But we have the mind of Christ." 
It is the words of Jesus that can instruct the human mind in divine truth. 
I think that John was commenting on his experience with Jesus... that every word from him, reflected his great wisdom. John saw that the wisdom of Jesus, was boundless. Any attempt to record all that Jesus knew, ... "the world could not contain the books that would be written." 
That also assures me, that eternity will not become boring.
-  -  -  -  -  -  -

"My brain won't shut down for the night.  I was reading Ecclesiastes 9:13-16.  Perhaps Pearl may want to comment on it, but it sure seems to provide a glimmer of the coming of God's prophet under the New covenant, to the remnant in the last days.  This small city faces a king who builds siege ramps against it."

When I read the scriptures, the interpretation comes to me, through more scriptures. 
God's Word is the key, to open up God's mysteries.
I therefore will give you the keys.
Here is Eccles.9:13-16...

"13 I have observed that this also is wisdom *under the sun 
(Prov.9:1; Rev.3:12; 1Tim.3:15; 1Cor.12:8; Col.1:9; Eph.1:17; Rev.13:18; 17:9)
*(2Pet.1:19; Rev.22:16; 1:16; Mal.4:2; Luke 1:78; 1Thess.1:10; Heb.1:6; Rev.22:20), 
and it is significant to me (Ps.45:1): 
14 There was a small city with few men in it 
(Rev.20:9; 12:17; Isa.1:9; 10:20; Amos 7:5; Luke17:26-28,29-30; 1Pet.3:20). 
A great king came against it (Rev.12:17; 9:11; 20:7-9), 
surrounded it, and built large siege works against it (Luke21:20,24; Rev.16:13-14). 
15 Now a poor (Rev.3:8; Matt.5:3) wise man (1John2:14) 
was found in the city (Eph.2:6; Heb.12:22-23; Luke10:20; Rev.3:12), 
and he delivered the city (Rev.12:14) (Jer.5:1; Zech.3:9; Jer.50:20) his wisdom (Ecc.7:12).
Yet no one remembered that poor man (Rev.2:9; James2:6). 
16 And I said, “Wisdom is better than strength (Zech.4:6-7), 
but the wisdom of the poor man is despised 
(Prov.9:8; 15:12; John16:2; 8:40; 7:7; Eph.5:11) 
(Isa.53:1-3; John15:24-25,18,20-21; Mark13:13; Rev.11:3,7-8)  
...and his words are not heeded (Jer.7:27; Eze.3:7; Rev.9:20-21).”

 A Question:

Why don't we see more miracles? Should we expect more?

My Reply:

What did Jesus think of miracles? 
He said they were a testimony from his Father, as to Jesus' credentials (John10:37-38; 14:11). 
He said that there are those who believe due to miracles, and those who believe, despite not seeing miracles (John20:29-31). 
Those who required a sign/miracle in order to believe, Jesus described as wicked (Matt.16:4). Miracles were performed in behalf of those who already believed (Luke 18:42; 7:50; etc.). 

Jesus listed the miracles he performed, to the followers of John the baptist... "22 So he replied to the messengers, ‘Go back and report to John what you have seen and heard: the blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is proclaimed to the poor." (Luke 7:22). 

Regarding the era to come after Jesus and his apostles, including our day; Jesus did have some thing to say about the future of miracles... 
"12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; even greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father." (John14:12). 

What did Jesus mean, that the future of miracles would be greater than what Jesus performed? 
The miracles that Jesus listed at Luke 7:22 above, were physical. 
Their effect, was temporary. 
How did Jesus regard such physical things? 
He tells us, at John6:63 > "The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you – they are full of the Spirit and life.". 
Greater works than Jesus, would have a permanent result. Those works would instill the life-imparting words of Jesus into a heart... resulting in eternal life (John6:27,57-58,40,47,63). 
Gal.6:8 and Rom.8:6 explain... 
"The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace." - When our mind becomes governed by the words Jesus spoke, we gain spirit, eternal life, and peace. Those whose work imparts that life and peace, are doing greater works than physical miracles. 
Gal.6:8 reads; 
"Whoever sows with a view to the flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows with a view to the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.". 
Clearly, a work that imparts eternal life to one's spirit, is greater than curing the legs of a lame man, whose legs are destined for decay. 

If we look again at the list Jesus gave of his physical miracles, we see that this list can be applied in a spiritual way. Those who help to open the eyes of those without understanding (Matt.6:22; 13:10-11,16,10,13-14; Isa.35:5)... set the feet of a person on the road of life (Matt.7:13-14; Isa.35:8-9,10)... cleanse the heart of vice (Ps.51:10,1-2; Prov.17:3; Isa.48:10; Job 23:10)... open ears to the gospel (Isa.6:9-10; 35:5; Rev.2:29)... raise those dead in sin (Eph.2:1-2,3-4,5; Col.2:13; 1Cor.15:22)... and declare a message that gives hope to those in despair 
(Ps.51:17,12-13; Matt.5:3-4,6,10; John4:10; James 1:2-5; Matt.11:28-30; 12:20; 24:14; Isa.35:10; Rev.21:4)... 
are performing greater and more lasting works, than physical miracles.
