First Fruits is a set-apart day unto Yahuah that most people forget about. It is a wave offering that only the High Priest/Kohen can offer on the third day of Unleavened Bread. Yahusha is our High Priest/Kohen now. He rose on the third day and waved his offering before Yahuah on our behalf for our acceptance.
First Fruits is a day of rejoicing and worship. We are to keep this day forever and not forget it. After this Festival we are to start the count of the Omer to Shabuot/Pentacost seven sabbaths later.
Unleavened Bread/Matzah is a festival unto YAHUAH. It is observed the day after Passover, for 7 days.
We rest from work on the first and last day of the week long festival.
We gather together on the first and last day of the festival.
We eat unleavened bread for 7 days
We do not consume anything that has leaven in it throughout the week long festival.
We clean our houses and get rid of anything that has leaven in it (this is where spring cleaning came from).
We can cook food that is to be consumed only by us.
‘Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread. Indeed on the first day you cause leaven to cease from your houses. For whoever eats leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that being shall be cut off from Yisra’El. ‘And on the first day is a set-apart gathering, and on the seventh day you have a set-apart gathering. No work at all is done on them, only that which is eaten by every being, that alone is prepared by you. ‘And you shall guard the Festival of Unleavened Bread, for on this same day I brought your divisions out of the land of Mitsrayim. And you shall guard this day throughout your generations, an everlasting law. (Exodus 12:15-17) Also found in Leviticus 23:6-8, et al.
This memorial depicts cleaning out the leaven/sin from our hearts and preparing us to receive the “good seed” of Torah.
Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the entire lump? Therefore cleanse out the old leaven, so that you are a new lump, as you are unleavened. For also Messiah our Passover was offered for us. So then let us observe the festival, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of evil and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. (1 Corinthians 5:6-8)

Here is a list of clean and unclean foods and products. Check often for updates: http://www.theisraelofgodrc.com/CUPL.html
The biggest unclean items consumed is pork, shellfish, and bugs. They are hidden in so many products today. Please read labels and share with others what you find to be unclean because not everyone knows when products change ingredients. Let’s help each other out! I was about to eat some Oikos Strawberry Greek Yogurt given by my job recently. I looked at the ingredients and saw carmine (which are cochineal bugs, a type of beetle).
What the Scriptures say about clean and unclean animals:
“Speak to the children of Yisra’el, saying, ‘These are the living creatures which you do eat among all the beasts that are on the earth: ‘Whatever has a split hoof completely divided, chewing the cud, among the beasts, that you do eat. ‘Only, these you do not eat among those that chew the cud or those that have a split hoof: the camel, because it chews the cud but does not have a split hoof, it is unclean to you; and the rabbit, because it chews the cud but does not have a split hoof, it is unclean to you; and the hare, because it chews the cud but does not have a split hoof, it is unclean to you; and the pig, though it has a split hoof, completely divided, yet does not chew the cud, it is unclean to you. ‘Their flesh you do not eat, and their carcasses you do not touch. They are unclean to you. ‘These you do eat of all that are in the waters: any one that has fins and scales in the waters, in the seas or in the rivers, that you do eat. ‘But all that have not fins and scales in the seas and in the rivers, all that move in the waters or any living creature which is in the waters, they are an abomination to you. ‘They are an abomination to you – of their flesh you do not eat, and their carcasses you abominate. ‘All that have not fins or scales in the waters is an abomination to you. ‘And these you do abominate among the birds, they are not eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, and the vulture, and the black vulture, and the hawk, and the falcon after its kind, every raven after its kind, and the ostrich, and the nighthawk, and the seagull, and the hawk after its kind, and the little owl, and the fisher owl, and the great owl, and the white owl, and the pelican, and the carrion vulture, and the stork, the heron after its kind, and the hoopoe, and the bat. ‘All flying insects that creep on all fours is an abomination to you. ‘Only, these you do eat of every flying insect that creeps on all fours: those which have jointed legs above their feet with which to leap on the earth. ‘These of them you do eat: the locust after its kind, and the destroying locust after its kind, and the cricket after its kind, and the grasshopper after its kind. ‘But all other flying insects which have four feet is an abomination to you. ‘And by these you are made unclean, anyone touching the carcass of any of them is unclean until evening, and anyone picking up part of the carcass of any of them has to wash his garments, and shall be unclean until evening. ‘Every beast that has a split hoof not completely divided, or does not chew the cud, is unclean to you. Anyone who touches their carcass is unclean. ‘And whatever goes on its paws, among all the creatures that go on all fours, those are unclean to you. Anyone who touches their carcass is unclean until evening, and he who picks up their carcass has to wash his garments, and shall be unclean until evening. They are unclean to you. ‘And these are unclean to you among the creeping creatures that creep on the earth: the mole, and the mouse, and the tortoise after its kind, and the gecko, and the land crocodile, and the sand reptile, and the sand lizard, and the chameleon. ‘These are unclean to you among all that creep. Anyone who touches them when they are dead becomes unclean until evening. ‘And whatever any of them in its dead state falls upon, becomes unclean, whether it is any wooden object or garment or skin or sack, any object in which work is done, it is put in water. And it shall be unclean until evening, then it shall be clean. ‘Any earthen vessel into which any of them falls, whatever is in it becomes unclean, and you break it. ‘Any of the food which might be eaten, on which water comes, becomes unclean, and any drink which might be drunk from it becomes unclean. ‘And on whatever any of their carcass falls becomes unclean – an oven or cooking range – it is broken down. They are unclean, and are unclean to you. ‘But a fountain or a well, a collection of water, is clean, but whatever touches their carcass is unclean. ‘And when any of their carcass falls on any planting seed which is to be sown, it is clean. ‘But when any water is put on the seed and any part of any such carcass falls on it, it is unclean to you. ‘And when any of the beasts which are yours for food dies, he who touches its carcass becomes unclean until evening. ‘And he who eats of its carcass has to wash his garments, and shall be unclean until evening. And he who picks up its carcass has to wash his garments, and shall be unclean until evening. ‘And every creeping creature that creeps on the earth is an abomination, it is not eaten. ‘Whatever crawls on its stomach, and whatever goes on all fours, and whatever has many feet among all creeping creatures that creep on the earth, these you do not eat, for they are an abomination. ‘Do not make yourselves abominable with any creeping creature that creeps, and do not make yourselves unclean with them, lest you be defiled by them. ‘For I am Yahuah your Alahiym, and you shall set yourselves apart. And you shall be set-apart, for I am set-apart. And do not defile yourselves with any creeping creature that creeps on the earth. ‘For I am Yahuah who is bringing you up out of the land of Mitsrayim, to be your Alahiym. And you shall be set-apart, for I am set-apart. ‘This is the Torah of the beasts and the birds and every living creature that moves in the waters, and of every creature that creeps on the earth, to make a distinction between the unclean and the clean, and between the living creature that is eaten and the living creature that is not eaten.’ ”
Ladies, what is going on with the phenomenon of having a big butt? People are literally DYING after the procedure. Is it really worth it??? NO is the answer. Is Yahuah really pleased with us changing our bodies? It’s so disgusting to me, so I can’t imagine how Yahuah feels about it. The above picture is of a woman with 5 children. She got the surgery and died after suffering cardiac arrest following a pulmonary embolism which developed shortly after her plastic surgery. – See more at: http://blastdatass.com/mother-of-5-dies-following-brazilian-butt-lift-surgery/#sthash.wjJ2PjNw.dpuf
FAKE!? I hate it!!! Fake breast, butts, six pack stomachs, hair, nails, lips, cheeks, food, and the list goes on.
The definition of Modesty is 1.the quality of being modest; freedom from vanity, boastfulness, etc. 2. regard for decency of behavior, speech, dress, etc. 3. simplicity; moderation. 4. Neither bold nor self-assertive; decent. Synonyms: shy, chaste.
I will start from the beginning and how Adam and Hawwah dressed themselves. Bereshith/Genesis 3:7 – Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked. And they sewed fig leaves together and made loin coverings for themselves.So they only covered their private parts. Now let’s see how Yahuah dressed them. Bereshith/Genesis 3:21 – And יהוה Alahiym made coats of skin for the man and his wife and dressed them. Adam and Hawwah were not covered enough so Yahuah had to cover them over again. The word coat is the Hebrew 3801 and it means to cover, a shirt: coat, garment, robe. So we see that covering up is very important to the Most High. Also, this is the first animal sacrifice which symbolizes a covering.
If we show our thigh, it is considered nakedness:
Exodus 28:42 “And make linen trousers for them, to cover their nakedness, reaching from the waist to the thighs.”
Isaiah 47:2-3 “Take the millstones and grind flour. Remove your veil, lift up the skirt, uncover the leg, pass through rivers.
Let your nakedness be uncovered, let your shame also be exposed. I take vengeance, and meet no man.”
Nakedness is considered a shame in scripture:
Isaiah 20:2-4 “at that same time יהוה spoke by means of Yeshayahu son of Amots, saying, “Go, and remove the sackcloth from your body, and take your sandals off your feet. And he did so, walking naked and barefoot.” And יהוה said, “As My servant Yeshayahu has walked naked and barefoot three years for a sign and a wonder against Mitsrayim and Kush, so does the sovereign of Ashshur lead away the captives of Mitsrayim and the exiles of Kush, young and old, naked and barefoot, with their buttocks uncovered – the shame of Mitsrayim.”
Yahuah purposefully had Yeshayahu uncover his nakedness as a sign against Mitsrayim and Kush. Our ancestors were also naked and barefoot on those slave ships as a sign of our disobedience to Yahuah.
*In your spare time go to Wayyiqra/ Leviticus 18 where it talks about the sins of uncovering nakedness.
Modesty is not just an apparel issue, it’s a behavior issue:
1 Timothy 2:9-10 “Likewise, that the women dress themselves becomingly, with decency and sensibleness, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly garments, but with good works, which is becoming for women undertaking worship of Alahiym.”
1 Peter 3:4-6 “but the hidden Man of the heart, with the incorruptible ornament of a meek and peaceable spirit, which is of great value before Alahiym. For in this way, in former times, the set-apart women who trusted in Alahiym also adorned themselves, being subject to their own husbands, as Sarah obeyed Aḇraham, calling him master, of whom you became children, doing good, and not frightened by any fear.”
So we should exhibit a meek and peaceable spirit as women of Zion and reverence our husbands with wisdom and understanding. This took me to Proverbs 7 which shows us how not to be.
Proverbs 7:4-27 “Say to wisdom, “You are my sister,” And call understanding a close friend, To guard you against the strange woman, Against the foreigner who flatters with her words. For at the window of my house I looked through my lattice, And I saw among the simple, I perceived among the youths, A young man lacking heart, Passing through the street near her corner; And he went the way to her house In the twilight, in the evening, In the black and dark night. And look, a woman met him, Dressed like a whore, With a hidden heart. She was boisterous and stubborn, Her feet did not stay at her own house. Now in the street, Now in the square, And at every corner she lurks. And she took hold of him and kissed him; She hardened her face and said to him: “Peace offerings are with me; Today I have paid my vows. “Therefore I came out to meet you, To earnestly seek your face, and I found you. “I have spread my bed with coverings, Coloured linens of Mitsrayim. “I have sprinkled my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon. “Come, let us take our fill of love until morning; Let us delight ourselves with love. “For my husband is not at home; He has gone on a long journey; “He took a bag of silver with him; He comes home on the day of the new moon.” With her many words she leads him astray, With her smooth lips she seduces him. He goes after her immediately, Like an ox he goes to the slaughter, And as in chains, a fool to the punishment, Till an arrow strikes through his liver; Like a bird rushing into a snare, And did not know it would take his life. And now, listen to me, you children; Pay attention to the words of my mouth: Do not let your heart turn aside to her ways, Do not go astray in her paths. For many are the wounded she has caused to fall, And numerous all her slain ones. Her house is the way to the grave, Going down to the rooms of death.”
Sisters, no one but your husband should see your breast, thighs, butt, or any other intimate part of your body. We should not be like this Proverbs 7 woman who has a hidden heart. We should strive to be like the Proverbs 31 woman who deals with the affairs of her home. Our bodies are the temple of Yahuah and it need to be kept sacred and secret, and we need to be covered.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 “Or do you not know that your body is the Dwelling Place of the Set-apart Spirit who is in you, which you have from Alahiym, and you are not your own? For you were bought with a price, therefore esteem Alahiym in your body and in your spirit, which are of Alahiym.”
Romans 12:1-2 “I call upon you, therefore, brothers, through the compassion of Alahiym, to present your bodies a living offering – set-apart, well-pleasing to Alahiym – your reasonable worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you prove what is that good and well-pleasing and perfect desire of Alahiym.”
Are we supposed to follow the fashion of the world that promote low shirts, short skirts, tight clothing that reveal our shapes, and bras and panties as bathing suits or should we dress set-apart to Yahuah having respect and honor for him? Not only him, but respect for ourselves, our husbands (if we have one) and the husband of our sisters as well (who are our brothers). We should definitely be considerate of married men because we can cause them to sin. Not only through the way we look, but also through our conversation and smile. We should not be conversing with men about personal issues if we are married. It will cause them to become attached and eventually fall into a trap.
Sirach 9:8-9 “Turn away your eyes from a shapely woman, and do not look intently at beauty belonging to another; many have been misled by a woman’s beauty, and by it passion is kindled like a fire. Never dine with another man’s wife, nor revel with her at wine; lest your heart turn aside to her, and in blood you be plunged into destruction.
Wearing revealing clothing and/or acting loose is not good for anyone overall. It can cause some women to gossip, some men to lust, and the women who wear the revealing clothing can be boastful or proud due to the attention they are getting. Immodesty is more than wearing a short skirt or low top; it’s the act of drawing undo attention to yourself. It’s pride on display. Immodesty can also be a sign of low self-esteem. I hear women use excuses like these to continue to be immodest: 1) the weather is hot 2) everybody does it 3) it’s fashionable 4) my husband doesn’t mind (5) or, it doesn’t matter because men don’t pay attention to me anyway (but they forget that Yah see everything). Our dress should exalt Alahiym and not ourselves. Modesty is humility. Your wardrobe is a public statement of your personal and private motivation. If you are using your dress to seduce men or to be admired by men then that is not glorifying the Most High, it’s glorifying yourself. We present a picture of Yahuah in the way we present ourselves. Our stance should be to model a humble and teachable spirit and dress with modesty. How you dress matters to Yahuah and it also matters to those of the faith. You never realize how important your clothing is until you realize how important you are to Alahiym. Cover up for the glory of Yahuah, and if you are married, for the good of your husband. And if you are single, a potential husband will definitely respect your modesty as a daughter of Zion.
We are called to be set-apart as Deuteronomy 14:2 and Deuteronomy 26:17-19 reveal. Let’s not be like the seductive women in Isaiah 3:16-26. We should be associated with words like modest, sober, meek, quiet, submissive, moderate, calm, and gentle. Not words like hot, sexy, revealing, or provocative. My question to you is, “What does your clothes say about you?”
Deuteronomy 14:2 “for you are a set-apart people to יהוה your Alahiym, and יהוה has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a treasured possession above all the peoples who are on the face of the earth.”
Deuteronomy 26:17-19 “You have today caused יהוה to proclaim to be your Alahiym, and to walk in His ways and guard His laws, and His commands, and His right-rulings, and to obey His voice. “And יהוה has caused you to proclaim today to be His people, a treasured possession, as He has spoken to you, and to guard all His commands, so as to set you high above all nations which He has made, for a praise, and for a name, and for esteem, and for you to be a set-apart people to יהוה your Alahiym, as He has spoken.”
Isaiah 3:16-26 “And יהוה says, “Because the daughters of Tsiyon are haughty, and walk with outstretched necks and seductive eyes, walking and mincing as they go, making a jingling with their feet, therefore יהוה shall smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Tsiyon, and יהוה expose their nakedness.” In that day יהוה takes away the finery of the anklets, and the headbands, and the crescents, the pendants, the bracelets and the veils, the headdresses, and the leg ornaments, and the sashes, and the perfume bottles, and the amulets, the rings, and the nose jewels, the costly robes, and the cloaks, and the shawls, and the purses, the mirrors, and the fine linen, and the turbans, and the large veils. And it shall be: Instead of a sweet fragrance, a smell of decay; and instead of a belt, a rope; and instead of well-set hair, baldness; and instead of a festal robe, a girding of sackcloth; and branding instead of loveliness. Your men shall fall by the sword, and your strength in battle. And her gates shall lament and mourn, and she, deserted, shall sit on the ground.
1 Peter 2:9-12 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a set-apart nation, a people for a possession, that you should proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvellous light, who once were not a people, but now the people of Alahiym; who had not obtained compassion, but now obtained compassion. Beloved ones, I appeal to you as sojourners and pilgrims, to abstain from fleshly lusts which battle against the life, having your behaviour among the gentiles good so that when they speak against you as evil-doers, let them, by observing your good works, esteem Alahiym in a day of visitation.
Where did the word “Christ” come from?
In the Septuagint version of the Hebrew Bible, the word Christ was used to translate into Greek the Hebrew Mashiach (messiah) (H4899), meaning “anointed.” Christós (G5547 – Root G5548) in classical Greek usage could mean covered in oil, or anointed, and is thus a literal translation of messiah.
Why do people call themselves followers of someone they don’t imitate?
Follower – an adherent or devotee of a particular person, cause, or activity.
It’s due to lack of knowledge and actually following others (i.e. pastors, family members, etc.) and not learning of Mashiach and who He really is.
Mashiach kept the Feast Days found in Leviticus 23 and never worshiped idols and their festivals.
Mashiach wore tzitziyot (tassels) found in Numbers 15:38.
Mashiach worshiped the Father only and taught others to worship the Father only found on Matthew 4:10.
Mashiach is a sacrificial gift from the Father Yahuah (Leviticus 17:11). We pray to the Father only in the Name of Mashiach Yahusha.
Mashiach nor his disciples ate unclean animals (pork, shellfish, etc.). You will not find it in scripture anywhere. Acts 10:14 shows that Peter never ate unclean (the vision was not for him to start eating unclean but to witness to the gentile Cornelius – Acts 10:17).
Why do the gentiles rage, And the peoples meditate emptiness? The sovereigns of the earth take their stand, And the rulers take counsel together, Against Yahuah and against His Messiah, and say, “Let us tear apart Their bonds, And throw away Their ropes from us.” He who is sitting in the heavens laughs, Yahuah mocks at them. Then He speaks to them in His wrath, And troubles them in His rage, saying, “But I, I have set My Sovereign on Tsiyon, My set-apart mountain.” “I inscribe for a law: Yahuah has said to Me, ‘You are My Son, Today I have brought You forth. ‘Ask of Me, and I make the gentiles Your inheritance, And the ends of the earth Your possession. ‘Break them with a rod of iron, Dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.’ ” And now, be wise, O sovereigns; Be instructed, you rulers of the earth. Serve Yahuah with fear, And rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest He be enraged, And you perish in the way, For soon His wrath is to be kindled. Blessed are all those taking refuge in Him. (Psalms 2:1-12)
Passover, what does it all really mean anyway?
Passover, also known as Pesach (H6453) in Hebrew, is a day that we should celebrate as part of the 7 Feast Days of Yahuah. It all started with Moses and Pharaoh in Egypt. I’ll quickly paraphrase the story – see Exodus Chapters 3-12 for full story: Yahuah sent Moses to Pharaoh requesting that he let his people (Yashra’al) go. Pharaoh refused and Yah sent plagues upon Egypt. One of the plagues was that the first born child will die in all of Egypt. Yashra’al would only be saved if they put lamb’s blood above their door, on the posts. Once that is done, Yahuah will pass over their house and the plagues will not come upon them. We are to observe that event as a Festival unto Yahuah throughout our generations. It is an everlasting law (Exodus 12:14)! It is a symbol of redemption from bondage in Egypt. It is also a symbol of redemption from bondage to sin. Mashiach/Messiah Yahusha became our Passover Lamb (Leviticus 17:11 ‘For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your lives, for it is the blood that makes atonement for the life.’ ) When we stand at the Judgment seat of Yah, it is the blood covering us that would allow Him to see us because our righteousness is as filthy rags (Isaiah 64:6). We need Yahusha’s blood for atonement. If we try to get to Yahuah through another way, it is theft and robbery in the site of Yahuah (John 10:1-2).
When is Passover?
Passover is the 14th day of the first month (Abib) of the year (Leviticus 23:15). Passover usually falls in the Gregorian month of April.
Who cannot observe Passover?
Any male who is not circumcised of the flesh cannot partake in the Passover (Exodus 12:48).
Yahuah gives a second date to partake in the Passover for those who were unclean or away (Numbers 9:6-13).
So, what are we to do for Passover?
We are to eat lamb (Exodus 12:3-6).
Passover must be taken with unleavened bread (Deuteronomy 16:1-4) – Passover and Unleavened Bread go hand in hand.
We are to eat bitter herbs (Exodus 12:8). My family usually partake of horseradish.
Scripture gives an example of Yahusha washing feet but it is not a command in Turah (just something awesome to do to show servitude in my opinion) (John 13:1-17)
Is Passover and Easter the same?
Absolutely NOT! In the KJV, you see the word Easter once (Acts 12:4). When you look at it in the Hebrew or the Strong’s Concordance, it is still the Hebrew word Pesach, which is Passover. You have to question why the KJV would add the word Easter when all the other words say the correct meaning of Passover. Easter is only found in English translations. Greeks used the term pascha (G3957) which is also the word for Passover. The answer is for deception purposes only.
Easter is a pagan celebration of Ishtar, also known as the Queen of Heaven and Ashtoreth. She was the fertility goddess. That’s why you see Easter eggs and bunnies which symbolize sex and children. Christians observe Easter as the celebration of the resurrection of the Messiah, but there is no record of the disciples observing His resurrection, nor is it a command to do so. It is a command to keep the Passover, but many people pass over that commandment to observe a pagan day not found in scripture.
