Looking for biblical answers instead of traditional ones? Tired of the same old emotional roller coaster instead of spiritual substance?
Our newsletter, Kingdom Thoughts, will encourage and challenge you to think for yourself.
If you have entered into covenant with the Almighty through the instructions (Torah) in his word, you have received of his Spirit. That Spirit is known in Scripture as the Spirit of Truth. He is God and he promises to lead us into ALL truth. If you haven't or do not know what God's covenant in the blood of Messiah is all about, we will gladly share those instructions with you so that as many of us as possible can prepare for the coming time of great trouble. There is true hope in these times, and it is all in knowing what YHVH has to say about all that is happening in the present-day world. We invite you to fellowship with us.

Passover or Easter; Holy or Profane?
"You will not pollute my holy name, for I have set myself apart
in the midst of the sons of Israel; I am YHWH, I sanctify you,"
Few people understand the concept of "set apart" or "holy." Most people perceive the concept as an unattainable state of existence. They see it as impossibility and decide to give credence to those who attain positions of recognition within the diverse religions that exist.
Take those who attribute such a state to the Dalai Lama, Buddha, their priest or pastor, or some televangelist. These people live on a spiritual diet of suppositions created by their lack of knowledge and consider themselves unworthy to call themselves holy.
So what is the difference between holy and profane? The word "profane" means "polluted" or "corrupted." In the field of computer programming, a program will cease to function correctly when a file within it is polluted or corrupted. One's computer will start to issue forth messages and warnings or will just stop working altogether if the pollution is severe enough.
In the faith of YHWH, the faith of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; the precepts that are part of the faith have been breathed by God and written down by men who heard him. If we can't believe this, then we have no business trying to understand it because we never will.
The elements that are part of this faith are all bound together in one faith and cannot be altered because they are the unchangeable counsel of YHWH our God. To take from or add to those elements or precepts is to "pollute" or "corrupt" the faith and thus dishonor YHWH's name.
It would be beyond the scope of this article to try and recount the history of what happened and how the name of a pagan goddess came to be involved in the "supposed" celebration of our Messiah's sacrifice and resurrection. And the many details within the deception perpetrated upon humanity by those who incorporated this and other pagan names into their version of the faith; along with the changing of appointed times and seasons, would be more than time and space allow in this article.
However, know that for almost 1700 years, the deception has been cultivated to keep you from seeing the purity of what YHWH has proclaimed as holy or set apart. It is truly a time for diligent inspection of those things we believe and act upon. For if we continue to mix the profane with the holy, He will come and suddenly cut us off from his people. God has a perfect plan with perfect precepts in place. Those who respect that will adhere to the faith of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Those who do not will continue on polluting his name until they find themselves in a place where there is wailing and gnashing of teeth.
So this Passover, April 18 sundown to April 19 sundown, determine whether you will celebrate it or whether you will celebrate Easter on April 24 complete with the trimmings of the goddess's elements of Ham, Easter eggs, and chocolate bunny rabbits, which all speak of the fable of Ishtar (Easter to the Anglo-Saxons) that you will be truly celebrating while you are duped into thinking it is Messiah that you are honoring.
Being set apart makes us responsible to keep the precepts of God and expressly prohibits us from practicing the abominations of paganism. We can either obey his commandments or disqualify ourselves through the original sin; disobedience. So I leave it to you to decide whether you will stand on your faith and obey the God of heaven and earth or cop out and compromise for the sake of children, wife, husband, relatives, church, etc, etc, etc. For it is written: "If you love these more than me, you are not worthy of me."
Let all my relatives and friends know therefore, that I will follow the example of that faithful man Joshua who said, "As for me and my house, we will serve YHWH."
