RESURRECTION (to stand again, or ANASTASIS in Greek)

The Date of Easter,

WHO IS EASTER?
The impregnation festival in the
(9 months from the sun's birthday, December 25th)
was known in each avatar of the beast (reign of Babel).
The Great Mother was known as Ishtar, Astaroth, Eostre, Artemis, Diana,
Libertas, and dozens more.
Mother Nature, or Gaia, is the current midden (pagan garbage heap) the media
is sifting out. The fertility emblems - eggs, rabbits, and fish - and her
association with the moon, are overlooked by those hypnotized by the
Crumbs fall from the children’s
table (Yisrael being the “children”)

writings of Eusebius and the 4th-century Apostolic Constitutions.
There is no way to establish a date for "Easter" from Scripture, since it is
an adopted festival from heathens.
It is obvious that you are
trying to find out more, so I’d like to share just a little of what my
research has revealed on this subject, in love.
Most realize the
resurrection of Yahusha on the first day of the week fulfilled the “sign of
Yonah,” 3 days and 3 nights from the time of His burial.
What is less known is that
His resurrection was the fulfillment of one of the
redemptive shadows: that of First-fruits.
The waving of the barley omer was conducted by the Kohen ha’Gadol (High Priest) on the
“morrow after the Sabbath” (the 1st day of the week, Lev 23:11),
during the week of Matsah, a 7-day leaven-free period following Pesach
(known as Passover, or the Greek, Pascha).
“And he shall wave the sheaf
before Yahuah, for your acceptance. On the morrow
after the Sabbath the priest waves it.”
Passover is on the 14th day of
the 1st moon; the Lamb was slain between the evenings on this day.
Without the protection of
the blood of the Lamb, slain in our place, we would all perish. Passover
points to Yahusha’s death, pierced for our transgressions, a smiting for our
iniquities (lawlessnesses) – see Is / YashaYahu 53.
After Passover, the
next event or shadow is about the resurrection:
is on the morrow after the weekly Sabbath, and foreshadows the resurrection
of Yahusha as the “First-fruits.”
This was the
only sign Yahusha gave as evidence of His teaching authority, and that He is Who He claimed to
He is the “first” to be
resurrected, and His followers await their resurrection at His return, on
the “day of the shout,” Yom Teruah.
(to “stand again”) is the object that casts the “shadow” –
the “outline” or figure implied by the terms referring to “harvest.”
The meanings are concealed
and are veiled “shadows,” keeping outsiders from “hearing” and
The resurrection of Yahusha
was on a 1st day of the week, however this does not change
when the Sabbath day is observed. The resurrection points to the fulfillment
of the wave-sheaf offering known as “First-fruits.”
There is no “Easter” (as a
word) in the Writings of the followers of Yahusha, it is a mistranslation in
the KJV at Acts 12:4. “Easter” is the heathen name for the Earth mother,
Ishtar (Asherah, Eostre, Isis, Astoreth, Astara, etc.,.). It involved
“sunrise services” (Ezekiel 8).
The reason people don’t know
when, how, or why the prophetic fulfillments like Passover, First-fruits,
Shabuoth, Yom Teruah, Yom Kaphar, and Sukkoth occur is due to the fact that
Constantine forbade their observance.
They are the redemptive festivals
outlining in “shadows” how Yahusha is redeeming Yisrael, His bride. We must
engraft into the Covenant to partake of the blessing of the olive tree, not
remain a wild olive tree assuming we “replaced” the one true olive tree.
The reason people can’t get
to the Truth is that they are not abiding (living) in Yahuah’s Word:
John / Yahukanon
“So Yahusha said to those Yahudim who believed
Him, “If you stay in My Word, you are truly My taught ones, and you shall
know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

The Ten Commandments teach us how to love Yahuah, and how to
love our neighbor. They are not taught by any faith group as written.

Commandments, they would embrace them.
