Passover message and counting the Omer

Joseph F. Dumond

Isa 6:9-12 And He said, Go, and tell this people, You hear indeed, but do not understand; and seeing you see, but do not know. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their hearts, and turn back, and be healed. Then I said, Lord, how long? And He answered, Until the cities are wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land laid waste, a desolation, and until Jehovah has moved men far away, and the desolation in the midst of the land is great.

Shalom Family,

I hope this message finds you all in great spirits, having profited from the teachings and studies during these days of Passover and Unleavened Bread.
Each and every message, that has been presented in our group, has tied into the next message beautifully. It has really been amazing to see this.

I have had two 6 hour long midrashes. Which were both exciting and exhausting. At one point we were talking about prophecies and looking up scriptures to the previous subject and searching Josephus about the Temple all at the same time.

We have shared so much my head hurts.

In our group are brethren of divergent belief’s. These differences come out in the midrashes, and some times get very loud. But once we have concluded we never forget that we are brothers and that the only way to know we are disciples of Yahshua is by the way we love one another. May we all remember this one thing. That even though we do not all agree on all points. We must learn to love one another in spite of ours or their inability to see things the same way.

It is Yahweh who will open their eyes to the truth when He is ready.

The baby toe has no idea what importance the ear has, nor the nose with the back of the heel. But all parts of the body are needed for the sake of the body. Just because you can’t understand their view or they yours, does not mean you do not need to care for them. It does not mean you do not have to love them. You do!

One brother shared a message about what was nailed to the cross. An excellent presentation I hope to share this same message on the web site. I spoke on the Hard heart that we each have. Another brother spoke on how Ellen G White wrote and endorsed the Feast Days. Contrary to belief’s held by today’s Adventist. We have also been listening to Eddie Chumney, an excellent study. And the last day of Unleavened Bread is still tomorrow, Tuesday April 10th 2007.

At this time I would like to encourage those of you whose heart is not hard to read once again the Article on Pentecost’ Hidden Meaning. It shows you how to count three days and three nights. It shows you how important this Sunday, the world calls resurrection Sunday was. This is the one day of the Year the pagan churches have partly right. Although it was not the day of His resurrection it was the day He took some captives with Him to the Father in Heaven as the wave offering of First Fruits. The first time humans who had once lived were resurrected and went to Heaven. The First Time!

I do encourage you to read this once again, especially at this time of year.
I am also forwarding on a message from Nehemia Gordon.

I Pray that Yahweh continues to teach and reprove each of us as we continuously put the sin out of our lives and seek his will in them. May your studies be blessed.
