The 4 Cups of the Passover

Here are the 3 letters which the President of the LWs sent to the President of the JWs in order to try and convince the Watchtower to celebrate the Passover according to what is written.

Greetings my brother in faith and love,

Re: The Memorial Celebration

Firstly please accept my apologies for sending this information so near to the date. Although actually I suppose it is rather appropriate that you will not have time properly to bake these ideas, this being a feature of the festival of unfermented cakes!

As you know millions of brothers and sisters will put on their best clothes and turn up at the memorial in faith and out of gratitude to Jesus. It therefore is the duty of the slave to make every possible endeavour to ensure that the celebration is carried out with a doctrinal competence that matches the faith and the attire of those who turn up. Further it would be a good idea to celebrate it in the precise way that the scriptures dictate, in order that our sacrifices are accepted. For Abel’s sacrifice was accepted not because he had great faith but because he brought along the correct sacrifice. Whereas Cain’s sacrifice was rejected not because he had no faith but because he brought along the incorrect sacrifice.

Sacrifices are very simple. You bring what God asks you to bring. You bring it on the day he chooses. You bring it to the place that he stipulates. Now Abel bought two sacrifices, two firstlings, which represent the sacrificial validations of 2 covenants. He got it right, so his sacrifice was accepted. And that is one of the things I want to get across herein. I want you to get it right too.

Here are the 4 texts we must consider…

[1AC] is the First Abrahamic Covenant of Genesis 12
[1NC] is the First New Covenant mediated by Jesus at the last supper
[PARC] and [ARC] are two other covenants which are beyond the scope of this fax.

26 As they continued eating, Jesus took a loaf [1AC] and, after saying a blessing, he broke it and, giving it to the disciples, he said: Take, eat. This is my body.
27 Also, he took a cup [1AC] and, having given thanks, he gave it to them, saying: Drink out of it, all of you;
28 for this is my 'blood of the covenant,' which is to be poured out in behalf of many for forgiveness of sins (Matthew 26).

22 And as they continued eating, he took a loaf [1AC], said a blessing, broke it and gave it to them, and said: Take it, this is my body.
23 And taking a cup [1AC], he offered thanks and gave it to them, and they all drank out of it.
24 And he said to them: This is my 'blood of the covenant,' which is to be poured out in behalf of many (Mark 14).

17 And, accepting a cup [PARC], he gave thanks and said: Take this and pass it from one to the other among yourselves;
18 for I tell you, From now on I will not drink again from the product of the vine until the kingdom of God arrives.
19 Also, he took a loaf [ARC], gave thanks, broke it, and gave it to them, saying: This is my body, which is to be given in your behalf. Keep doing this in remembrance of me.
20 Also, the cup [1NC] in the same way after they had the evening meal, he saying: This cup is the new covenant by virtue of my blood, which is to be poured out in your behalf (Luke 22).

23 For I received from the Lord that which I also handed on to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which he was going to be handed over took a loaf [ARC],
24 and, after giving thanks, he broke it and said: This is my body which is in your behalf. Keep doing this in remembrance of me.
25 He did likewise respecting the cup [1NC] also, after he had the evening meal, saying: This cup is the new covenant by virtue of my blood. Keep doing this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me (1.Corinthians 11).

I am going to keep this simple and restrict the explanations to things that can be fixed before Wednesday. We are going to play spot the difference on the 4 descriptions of the last supper above. For we know that God wastes not a drop of bio matter in nature, and not a particle of a letter in the holy book. Each account by its slight difference from the next, tells us more information about the Passover and how Jesus celebrated it and how we should celebrated it today. 

The hard part of this and the Big Picture is that the Jews back then and even today drink 4 cups at the Passover. So Jesus and the disciples being Jews under law would have drunk 4 cups on the night of 33Nisan14. And the New Covenant was the last of these 4 cups, the one drunk after the meal, and the 3 other cups also stand for covenants. But the Watchtower presently only understands 2 of these covenants. So let us address these 2 cups.

The loaf and cup of Matthew and the loaf and cup of Mark were eaten and drunk during the meal. They were taken: As they continued eating. Whereas the cup of Luke 22:20 and 1 Corinthians 11:25 was taken after the meal. The cup of Matthew and Mark was said to be: My blood of the covenant, which is to be poured out in behalf of many for forgiveness of sins. Whereas the cup of Luke 22:20 and 1 Corinthians 11:25 was said to be: The New Covenant by virtue of my blood, which is poured out in your behalf. Putting this in tabular form we have:

Cup of Matthew and Mark             Cup of Luke and 1 Corinthians

Drunk during the meal                                 Drunk after the meal
My blood of the covenant                             The New covenant by virtue of my blood
Poured on in behalf of the many                  Poured out in your behalf

The good thing is that the Watchtower know that Jesus was the Angel Michael. So when Jesus died, a human died and an angel died. So God had two souls at his disposal to act as ransoms, a human soul and an angelic soul. The Angel Michael ransomed Adam angelically and so the new covenant is not actually the blood of Michael but exists by virtue of his blood (since his blood ransomed Adam for everyone, not just for the 1NC saints). The human body of Jesus ransomed Abraham actually as the validation sacrifice for the 1AC, this being the lamb provided by Jehovah – Jehovah Jireh.

So the blood poured out for the many is the blood of the 1AC, the blood of Jesus the human. And the blood poured out for the apostles is the blood of Michael, the blood of Jesus the angel. The 1NC exists by virtue of this blood.

What does this all mean in practice? It means that the regular JWs should drink the cup of the 1AC and eat the loaf of the 1AC during the meal. And the remnant should drink the cup of the 1NC and eat the loaf of the 1NC after the meal. The remnant would also drink the cup and eat the loaf of the 1AC since they have faith too. In truth sons of Abraham, i.e. sons of faith, take the first cup, and sons of Jesus, the sons of the 1NC take the last cup.

That was the most difficult thing for me to get across to you and it is not the whole story but it is doable with present JW understanding, since the ‘great crowd’ know that they are saved by the 1AC. They should therefore drink it!!!!

Now we come to the easy part…

[1]  The blood flows round the body, the body does not flow round the blood. So the cup should be passed from one to another but not the loaf. The loaf should be given to each partaker by the priest directly, not passed around the room. The body does not move, the blood moves.  Please get this right or you miss the symbolism of the festival.

[2]  The cup was passed from one to another ‘among themselves’. It was not passed via anyone else. Only the sons of the 1NC, the remnant, can touch the cup of the 1NC. If a member of the great crowd touches that cup he or she defiles it. Please do not permit this. The remnant should congregate in an inner circle and each of them should be given personally their loaf and then the cup of their blood should flow around them, as they define Jesus’ body having eaten the loaf. It should flow around them alone.

This is what happened in the old days in the Watchtower before the great crowd came along. Rutherford correctly identified the great crowd but failed to make the appropriate allowance for their participation in the memorial. Please do not have Jesus’ blood flowing all over the great crowd in the memorial celebration. It flows around his body, not around anywhere else. His body is the remnant, his fiancé, the first new covenant saints. Please observe this correctly.

That is enough for this fax. The bottom line is this. If you love God you will make the effort and not care how embarrassing such an effort might be or how difficult it might be to implement. In fact you should rejoice in any embarrassment and in any difficulties it should cause you and leap for joy. Abraham went to a country he knew nothing about because God asked it of him. He made the effort to venture into the unknown because he trusted God. This again is unknown territory for the JWs, but what matters is that if you see it you try and implement it. For then you are a true son of Abraham, a son of the 1AC, a son of his faith. It matters less if you screw up having at least tried.

So this would be the new celebration…

[1] Every JW who attends and in fact anyone else who attends with faith eats the loaf of the 1AC. This loaf is given to everyone by the priest, it is not passed around

[2] Once the loaves have been eaten and the body of Abraham has been defined, then the cup of the 1AC is passed around the whole JW congregation together with all other who attend who have faith. They all drink from this cup and the priest tops it up as necessary from the several bottles of wine that he blessed to be or to symbolise or to represent the blood of the 1AC, poured of for the many. This priest does not have to be a 1NC saint. He merely needs to be a JW.

[3] After this the 1NC saints, the remnant, form an inner circle and the priest who must himself be a 1NC saint, a remnant brother, blesses the bread of the 1NC and breaks it himself and hands it to the 1NC saints individually (notice that Jesus broke the bread himself in every account), he offered himself up. We cannot have other people breaking the bread. They did not offer Jesus up. So all the remnant and only the remnant eat this bread, one piece each, given to them by the priest. That now defines the body of the Christ.

[4]  Then the priest blesses the cup and passes it to the first remnant brother and the blood flows round the body. And they all drink. In fact the cup can flow round the body as many times as it likes as our blood does every day. They carry on until all the wine is drunk. This is supposed to be a celebration, not a funeral service.

There is more to consider, but if you attempt to implement this you will be blessed. I do not speak here from emotion, I speak from hard scriptural knowledge, although I could just as well speak from emotion since we both know the love of God.

May God Bless his children

Agape

Monday April 17th 2006.

Greetings my brother in faith and love,

Re: A tale of 2 Memorials

We both celebrated the Passover on Wednesday night. At least we agreed on the date! One of our bible studies, Reggie, from New York, who used to be a JW, attended one of your memorials in Long Island, along with his fleshly brother, who still is a JW.

Reggie rang me on Thursday morning and we compared our two celebrations. It was a very enlightening process for the pair of us. Please permit me therefore to perform the same comparison here for you to consider…

The Long Island celebration was held at the Best Western Hotel. As Reggie walked into the room he saw some nice flowers and a rather sombre group of people. His first words to his fleshly brother were: Where is the coffin?

Then he sat down for an hour during which he was offered no physical food and no physical drink. He passed ‘the bread and the wine’ from the brother on one side of him to the brother of the other side of him and was able to look at the emblems but not to touch them. So he was given no salvation food, and was therefore unable to confirm any salvation status with respect to any covenant at that celebration. And the baptised JWs were no better off themselves. No one there was able to confirm any salvation status that they might have had. Reggie said that a nice respectful talk was given about the history of the Passover, but there were no new understandings revealed in his talk. Furthermore no brother at the celebration other than the one who gave the talk said one word in praise to Jehovah, other than through a kingdom melody. After an hour, they all had to leave the hotel to make room for the next congregation.

But many of the brothers were not entirely satisfied with the provisions of that celebration, so they went down to the Red Lobster restaurant, where they sat at a table and actually had a meal. They drank wine and they ate bread, neither of which regrettably was blessed, but at least they ate something. They talked about Jesus and his sacrifice and the Passover amongst themselves. They really enjoyed their association at the Red Lobster. But is it not a tragedy that they had to purchase from a worldly restaurant on Nisan14 the very association that the Watchtower had been unable to offer them.

By contrast, we held our celebration at a Holiday Inn near Chicago. We all sat down at a large table (Luke 22:21), both the baptised and the unbaptised alike. We started with some unblessed wine and bread because we were hungry and thirsty. Then all those present with faith other than our 7 year old were able to eat the loaf and drink the wine of the first cup of the passover, knowing that it represents the Pre-Adamic Ransom Covenant, the sealing covenant superior to the First Abrahamic Covenant. This we did before the meal of lamb and bitter greens and unleavened bread as Jesus also did. The 4 salvation covenants represented by the 4 cups and the 4 loaves of the original Passover celebration had been explained to the congregation earlier in the day, so that those who wished to grasp their significance could do so beforehand.

These 4 cups that Jesus and the apostles themselves drank that night are actually covered in the Watchtower of March 1st 1978 in an article entitled: Memorializing Christ’s death – How much longer? (incidentally the answer to that question was 30 years). Further the position of the meal with respect to these 4 cups is covered in the New World Translation Reference Bible footnote to Psalm 114. For the meal was eaten with the third cup as we both know.

After the second cup we recited the two Hallel Psalms 113 and 114, one verse each, passing them around the table. We were unable to sing them in Hebrew, but we did manage to recite them in several other languages. So everyone at the table including our 7 year old, praised Jehovah with their lips in the very words of David (translated into their own languages). Then we all started the meal and during the meal we all ate the bread and drank the cup of the First Abrahamic Covenant itself. This is the third cup, the one that is taken with the meal (Matthew 26:26).

I stood up and revealed a new understanding that we had received the day before, which related to who would turn up at our celebration. We were therefore treated to spiritual food that was a mere 24 hours old. Fresh at the table if you will.

After the meal and the 4th cup, we recited the Hallel Psalms 115 to 118, one verse each, going round the table. So again everyone present including our 7 year old had a second chance to praise Jah in the words of David, with inspired verse, written for this very celebration.

So I cannot resist quoting the famous line from Psalm 118 at this point... The stone the builders rejected has become the head of the corner (Psalm 118:22).

Jesus was that stone and the Jews were those builders in 33 AD. But I am that stone and you are those builders today. For the physical temple had 4 corners, and there are 4 cornerstones to the antitypical spiritual temple, of which Jesus is the chief cornerstone. Each cornerstone starts a new church. The first was Jesus, the second was Paul, the third was Charles Taze Russell, the fourth is writing this letter.

Returning now to the celebration. We all talked and talked and laughed and drank and wondered at the glory of our God, and at the love of his son, just as the brothers did in the Red Lobster.

So in summary, in Long Island, the brothers were given no physical food, no physical drink, no salvation food, no salvation drink, no new spiritual food, they sat at no table and they uttered none of the words of praise stipulated for the event and used by Jesus and the apostles at that event. No one had the opportunity to praise God with their own words to their brother during the festival. No one could discuss their gratitude to Jesus for his sacrifice made that day. No one could share their joy with their brother during that meeting. It was truly a dead celebration, a celebration for the dead. Is it not aptly termed a Memorial?

Whereas in Chicago, we sat down at a table as Jesus did. We were given physical food and drink as the apostles were. We ate and we drank the bread and the wine of the appropriate covenants just as the apostles did. We praised Jehovah in the words of David just as the apostles did. We praised Jesus in our own words to our brothers just as the apostles did. We had new spiritual understandings just as the apostles were given. We all enjoyed ourselves tremendously just as the apostles did, other than when Jesus revealed the new understanding about Judas. This was a living celebration, a celebration for the living.

So here are the questions that are begged by this contrast...

If you visited Jesus house, would he give you no food?
Would he give you nothing to drink?
Would he show you emblems symbolising salvation but deny you access to them?
Would he refuse to sit down with you at the same table?
Would he deny you an opportunity to praise God in your own words?
Would he deny you an opportunity to praise God through scripture?
Would he fail to find any new understandings for you?
Is he the kind of priest that would serve up 50 year old spiritual food?

So which of our two celebrations then would you say that Jesus attended?

Do the brothers at the Red Lobster not give us the answer? Should the true church not be more appealing and more hospitable even than the Red Lobster?

Of course you can rightly argue that our wonderfully accurate and enjoyable and meaningful celebration was only held in one room in Chicago, whereas your celebration was held in tens of thousands of rooms in hundreds of countries all over the world. But that tragedy is why the holy spirit through 2 Chronicles 30, 1 Kings 18, Esther 5, Matthew 26:29, Mark 14:25 and the true bible code etc. etc. has asked us to communicate with you with a view to persuading you to celebrate this festival: “According to what is written” (2 Chronicles 30:5).

With all the examples in scripture of Kings who did not listen to those sent by Jehovah to them, from Saul to Zedekiah, it would surely be inexcusable for you not to grant us a hearing ear at the least on this vital matter and agree to discuss it with us face to face. And why do we need yet another example of a King who is supposed to be representing Jehovah but who refuses to listen to instruction from the one whom he sends to him?

Are you truly prepared to run the risk of being blood guilty for 6 million Jehovah’s Witnesses? Jesus commanded us to keep doing this is remembrance of me. This being what he actually did on 33Nisan14. So either we obey his commandment or we are idolaters and so are condemned, breaking both his commandment and our covenant obligations. As Paul said: Keep on making sure what is acceptable to the Lord (Ephesians 5:10).

Or in the words of Charles Taze Russell, quoted in the Kingdom Proclaimers Book p49…

“Our work . . . has been to bring together these long scattered fragments of truth and present them to the Lord’s people—not as new, not as our own, but as the Lord’s. . . We must disclaim any credit even for the finding and rearrangement of the jewels of truth.” He further stated: “The work in which the Lord has been pleased to use our humble talents has been less a work of origination than of reconstruction, adjustment, harmonization.”

As sons of Russell by water baptism and by faith and by church, and as sons of Jesus by covenant please consider this further fragment of the Lord’s truth and reconstruct the Passover celebration accordingly.

May Jehovah bless his people and may you prove to be as righteous as Hezekiah and as humble as Russell.

Greetings my brother in faith and love,

Re: I will not eat it again until it becomes completed in the kingdom of God

Here is the situation that we do not want to be in…

41 Then he will say, in turn, to those on his left, 'Be on your way from me, you who have been cursed, into the indefinitely lasting fire prepared for the Devil and his angels.
42 For I became hungry, but you gave me nothing to eat, and I got thirsty, but you gave me nothing to drink.(Matthew 25).

Here on the other hand is the situation that we could be in and the prophecies which we can fulfil if we both want to do something for our Lord. We can both give him something to eat and something to drink and we both can fulfil his words in Matthew 26, Mark 14 and Luke 22 below in a few weeks time, if we have the will to do so…

29 But I tell you, I will by no means drink henceforth any of this product of the vine [the cup of the 1AC, the vine is Melchizedek] until that day when I [through the remnant, my wife, my flesh, my mouth] drink it new with you [plural, the remnant from at least two apostolic tribes of the 144,000, 12,000 sealed per apostolic tribe] in the kingdom of my Father (Matthew 26).  

25 Truly I say to you, I shall by no means drink anymore of the product of the vine [of Melchizedek, the whole covenant tree of the FRC] until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God [not said to be with you] (Mark 14).

 

15 And he said to them: I have greatly desired to eat this passover [meal of lamb and unleavened bread and bitter greens and the 4 loaves of the 4 covenants] with you before I suffer;
16 for I tell you, I will not eat it again until it becomes completed [plhrwqh] [celebrated fully] in the kingdom of God [which must be before I arrive on earth in Kingdom glory on 2008Iyyar29 at the ends of the 1335 days of Daniel 12 - see 1 Corinthians 11:26] (Luke 22).

 

Now either we wish to help him out, or we have some other agenda which is idolatry.

 

Let me therefore take you through the reasoning and explain how to give our saviour a meal he has been waiting for, for 1973 years, since 33Nisan14.

 

When a 1NC saint (First New Covenant saint, anointed remnant) is baptised in holy spirit he enters into the 1NC and into the baptism test of a spirit baptism. If he passes that test then he enters into the ARC (Angelic Ransom Covenant of Michael for Adam), the sealing covenant for all spirit baptisms. Likewise when a son of Abraham, a person of faith, has his conscience baptised in water by the angels under the direction of Melchizedek, he enters into the 1AC of Genesis 12:1-3 (First Abrahamic Covenant), and he enters into the baptism test of a conscience baptism. If he passes that test he enters into the FRC (Faith Ransom Covenant of Melchizedek for Adam’s human body), the sealing covenant of the faith baptism. If you want to know more about the 24 salvation covenants in God’s plan to save mankind please see www.biblecodeintro.com/intro28.html.

 

Or for a quick overview of the entire salvation plan please download the Covenant Tree from www.biblecodeintro.com/downloads/Covenant_Tree.pdf

 

So for simplicity, for the purposes of this letter, the ARC is the sealing covenant for those who pass the baptism test of the 1NC of Luke 22, and the FRC is the sealing covenant for those who pass the baptism test of the 1AC of Genesis 12.

 

So here are the cups of the Passover…

 

1st cup is the cup of the FRC, the sealing covenant for the 1AC.

2nd cup is the cup of the ARC, the sealing covenant for the 1NC.
3rd cup is the cup of the 1AC, drunk with the meal.
4th cup is the cup of the 1NC drunk after the meal.

 

Now Paul and the early first century Christians initially only partook of one cup and one loaf at the Passover for Paul said…

 

16 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not a sharing in the blood of the Christ? The loaf which we break, is it not a sharing in the body of the Christ?
17 Because there is one loaf, we, although many, are one body, for we are all partaking of that one loaf (1 Corinthians 10).

 

So Jesus evidently did not make clear to the apostles the symbolic meaning of the other 3 cups of the Jews at the last supper itself. Instead he told them that he would not drink certain cups again for a while. In other words he told them that they would not know the meaning of certain other cups for a while. However, now, we can understand the 4 puzzling statements that Jesus made during the last supper about not eating and drinking henceforth etc. Here they are:

 

27 Also, he took a cup [of the 1AC] and, having given thanks, he gave it to them, saying: Drink out of it, all of you;
28 for this is my 'blood of the covenant,' which is to be poured out in behalf of many [not just 144,000] for forgiveness of sins.
29 But I tell you, I will by no means drink henceforth any of this product of the vine [the cup of the 1AC, the vine is Melchizedek] until that day when I [through the remnant, my wife, my flesh, my mouth] drink it new with you [plural, the remnant from at least two apostolic tribes of the 144,000, 12,000 sealed per apostolic tribe] in the kingdom of my Father (Matthew 26).

 

22 And as they continued eating, he took a loaf [of the 1AC], said a blessing, broke it and gave it to them, and said: Take it, this is my body.
23 And taking a cup [of the 1AC], he offered thanks and gave it to them, and they all drank out of it.
24 And he said to them: This is my 'blood of the covenant,' which is to be poured out in behalf of many [not just the 144,000].
25 Truly I say to you, I shall by no means drink anymore of the product of the vine [of Melchizedek, the whole covenant tree of the FRC] until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God [not said to be with you].
26 Finally, after singing praises, they went out to the Mount of Olives (Mark 14)

 

15 And he said to them: I have greatly desired to eat this passover [meal of lamb and unleavened bread and bitter greens and the 4 loaves of the 4 covenants] with you before I suffer;
16 for I tell you, I will not eat it again until it becomes completed [plhrwqh] [celebrated fully] in the kingdom of God [which must be before I arrive on earth in Kingdom glory on 2008Iyyar29 at the end of the 1335 days of Daniel 12 - see 1 Corinthians 11:26].
17 And, accepting a cup [the 1st cup of the Passover, the cup of the FRC], he gave thanks and said: Take this and pass it from one to the other among yourselves;
18 for I tell you, From now on I will not drink again from the product of the vine [of Melchizedek, the whole covenant tree of the FRC] until the kingdom of God arrives.
19 Also, he took a loaf, gave thanks, broke it, and gave it to them, saying: This is my body [of the ARC] which is to be given in your behalf [not many but you]. Keep doing this in remembrance of me [keep giving thanks for, breaking and eating the loaf of the ARC in remembrance of me, for the ARC was truly the loaf of Michael's body, and breaking it is his death as an angel. But more generally, keep giving thanks for, breaking and eating all the food of the passover, the meal and the 4 loaves].
20 Also, the cup in the same way after they had the evening meal, he saying: This cup is the new covenant [the cup of the 1NC] by virtue of my blood [not my blood, but by virtue of my blood], which is to be poured out in your behalf (Luke 22).

 

What then is 'the product of the vine'? Well, Jesus is the 'true vine' of the ARC:

 

1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the cultivator.
2 Every branch in me not bearing fruit he takes away, and every one bearing fruit he cleans, that it may bear more fruit.
3 You are already clean because of the word that I have spoken to you.
4 Remain in union with me, and I in union with you. Just as the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it remains in the vine, in the same way neither can you, unless you remain in union with me.
5 I am the vine, you are the branches. He that remains in union with me, and I in union with him, this one bears much fruit; because apart from me you can do nothing at all (John 15).

 

Gabriel is the vine of the CRC (Church Ransom Covenant), the sealing covenant of all water baptisms, and Melchizedek is the vine of the FRC. All 3 Cherubs, all 3 master covenanters are vines, and the branches of these 3 vines are shown on our covenant chart of the 24 salvation covenants between God and man - see www.biblecodeintro.com/downloads/Covenant_Tree.pdf

 

So 'the product of the vine' in Mark and Luke is the blood of Melchizedek, and the vine is the FRC. The FRC is the most basic and general salvation vine. Its wine, its blood, saves all who get saved into the kingdom. So it is 'the' vine in the sense that all who are saved benefit from it. The true vine of the ARC is the final of the 3 salvation vines, which vine gives everlasting life and which the preceding 2 vines are subordinate to.  

 

But 'this product of the vine‘ in Matthew 26, is the blood of the 1AC, a subcovenant of the FRC, a branch of the FRC. It is the blood of the human Jesus who died on the stake.

 

So there it is. The blood of the 1AC and the blood of the FRC have not been drunk since 33Nisan14 by Jesus himself in a possessed human body or by his 1NC wife down here, his flesh. Now Jesus, being an angel in heaven would have great difficulty in drinking anything owing to his not having a mouth. But his fiancé, his wife to be, the new covenant saints, are still down here. They are his body, they are one flesh with him by agreement. So they can fulfil the prophetic words of the Christ. He can drink both of these cups again on 2006Iyyar14, if the true 1NC saints will listen to the voice of their husband. 

 

But Jesus says also, of the particular Passover which he ate on 33Nisan14, that he would not eat it again until the meal became fully completed in the Kingdom of God. 

 

15 And he said to them: I have greatly desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer;
16 for I tell you, I will not eat it again until it becomes completed [celebrated fully] in the kingdom of God (Luke 22).

 

The Kingdom of God began in 1914Tishri at the end of the Gentile Times as we know thanks to Reverend John Aquila Brown and thanks to Charles Taze Russell and thanks to the holy spirit. Jesus became the heavenly King of that earthly and heavenly Kingdom on 1914Tishri15 actually.

 

But Rutherford was not appointed as its vassal king over the sons of the ICC (Isaaic Church Covenant), the water baptised on earth, until 1918Nisan16, when Jesus exclusively appointed the administration of the Watchtower as his 3rd Faithful and Discreet Slave or as FDS3. So Jesus was king over all those baptised into the congregation administrated by the Watchtower through Rutherford from 1918Nisan16 onwards.

 

The Kingdom of God becomes worldwide on 2008Nisan16, precisely 90 years later or one quarter of a time later…

 

54 Then he went on to say also to the crowds: When you see a cloud [of resurrected 1NC saints in 1918Nisan16 following the pattern of Jesus] rising in western parts, at once you say, 'A storm is coming,' and it turns out so.
55 And when you see that a south wind is blowing, you say, 'There will be a heat wave,' and it occurs [Armageddon begins on 2008Nisan16, 90 years or a quarter of a time later].

56 Hypocrites, you know how to examine the outward appearance of earth and sky, but how is it you do not know how to examine this particular time? (Luke 12).

 

South is a quarter time/cycle/revolution around the compass from West.

 

Well this year, 2006, since we now understand the precise structure of the passover of 33Nisan14, Jesus is in a position to eat this meal again in the Kingdom of his father, in the Kingdom of God, which Kingdom is still at present merely over his official people, the sons of the ICC, those with a water baptism. He will eat and drink so long as Satan does not spoil the festival.

 

He can have the meal, the 4 cups and the 4 loaves and the lamb itself again, through the new covenant saints. So your Royal Highnesses, dinner is served! The dinner date is 2006Iyyar14 at Sundown. 

 

31 Then Jesus said to them: All of you will be stumbled in connection with me on this night, for it is written: I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock will be scattered about (Matthew 26).

 

The Lord’s Witnesses drank this cup themselves at the Passover on 2001Nisan14, but no new covenant saints were with them, so Jesus (through his 1NC wife, Leah) has still not yet drunk this cup again. They drank it again on 2002Nisan14, but no new covenant saints turned up to that one either. They drank it again on 2003Nisan14, and on 2004Nisan14 and yet again, no new covenant saints turned up.

 

But at the Passover on 2005Iyyar14, there was one 1NC saint who had joined the LWs. He drank this cup. At that time, Jesus, through his body, his wife/fiancé effectively drank the blood of the 1AC anew, in the Kingdom of his Father. Jesus had been his father’s heavenly vassal since 1914Tishri and Rutherford was his first earthly vassal from 1918Nisan. This was a historic occasion, but it was not the fulfilment of Matthew 26, because Jesus did not drink it 'with you'. No 1NC apostolic tribes were there, because the 1NC saint in the LWs is in the reserves, he is yet to go into an apostolic tribe. The 144,000 are divided into 12 apostolic tribes. Each tribe has an apostle as its father by water baptism initially and by spirit baptism finally.

 

Furthermore the Passover cannot properly be celebrated with only one 1NC saint present. Although the LWs did make a gallant attempt to serve God in this matter on 2005Iyyar14. This is because...

 

[1] Each 1NC saint has to go to the temple as the Jews did, and the temple is at least one other 1NC saint.
[2] The blood has to flow around the body, i.e. be passed from one 1NC saint to another.
[3] The bread representing Jesus body is broken, representing his death, but the pieces need to be eaten by at least two saints in order to symbolise this broken body.

 

So mankind has failed to drink the cup of the 1AC and failed to drink the cup of the FRC and failed to eat a completed and fully celebrated Passover due to the LWs only having one 1NC saint and due to the JWs having no water baptism and so all their 1NC saints are unclean in the flesh. So here we all are stumbled in connection with Jesus on the night of the Passover as Jesus prophesied. The situation we were all in on 2006Nisan14 is prophesied in 2 Chronicles 30...

 

2 However, the king and his princes and all the congregation in Jerusalem resolved to hold the passover in the 2nd month.
3 for they had not been able to hold it at that time, because not enough priests, on the one hand, had sanctified themselves and the people, on the other hand, had not gathered themselves to Jerusalem (2 Chronicles 30).

 

The one hand is the JW congregation, the other hand is the LW congregation. Different sides of lakes and two hands are the two complimentary congregations of the two parts of the presence in bible symbolism. We did not have enough 1NC saints at Jerusalem, having only one of them. And the JWs had no priests who were clean, having no water baptism. So neither of us could celebrate the Passover correctly on Nisan14.

 

But we do have a chance on 2006Iyyar14 to work together to fulfil 2 Chronicles 30 and the words of Jesus in Matthew and Mark and Luke. Shall we therefore give something to eat and to drink to our hungry and thirsty saviour? Or shall we fry?

 

Paul explains that we stop celebrating the Passover, we stop proclaiming the death of the Lord, when he actually arrives in 2008… 

26 For as often as you eat this loaf [of the ARC] and drink this cup [of the 1NC], you keep proclaiming the death of the Lord [as an angel in the case of the ARC and as a human in the case of the 1NC, since all human covenant mediators have to die], until he arrives [on 2008Iyyar29, at the end of the 1335 days of Daniel12] (1 Corinthians 11).

So we must drink all 4 cups and eat all 4 loaves and the meal on or before 2008Nisan14, since the command expires when Jesus arrives in Kingdom glory on 2008Iyyar29 at the end of the 1335 days of Daniel 12 – see www.truebiblecode.com/understanding152.html. 

Incidentally Jesus does not say that he will not drink the cup of the ARC again until the Kingdom of God. So Paul must have worked out what the 2nd cup stood for in the Lord's evening meal and informed the 1NC saints who joined his church, the church of FDS2. The first true Christian church run by FDS1 became corrupted and turned into the Catholic Church sometime around 75 AD. Peter left it and joined FDS2 with Paul on 90Tishri10, starting the 2nd part of the 1st presence – see www.truebiblecode.com/understanding42.html if you are interested. Peter never hesitated when it came to jumping into water to get to Jesus.

 

Indeed Paul said...

 

7 I have fought the fine fight, I have run the course to the finish, I have observed the faith.

8 From this time on there is reserved for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will give me as a reward in that day, yet not only to me, but also to all those who have loved his manifestation (2 Timothy 4).

 

The crown of righteousness is given to those declared righteous in spirit, those sealed in spirit, those baptised into the ARC.

 

30 Also, do not be grieving God's holy spirit, with which you have been sealed for a day of releasing by ransom (Ephesians 4).

 

The ransom is that of Michael's everlasting angelic spirit for Adam. So then 2006Iyyar14 could be the first time that the 1NC saints get this thing right since 33Nisan14! How miserable and hopeless we are as servants of the most high God!

 

24 Miserable man that I am! Who will rescue me from the body undergoing this death? (Romans 7).

 

Now if we do all of the above, then we will find that rather than going into the indefinitely lasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels, we shall fulfil again 2 Chronicles 30:27…

 

27 Finally the priests, the Levites, stood up and blessed the people, and a hearing was granted to their voice, so that their prayer came to his holy dwelling, the heavens (2 Chronicles 30).

 

The clear implication is that no hearing was granted to them in the absence of a properly celebrated Passover.

Therefore may almighty God bless our love for his son and break down the Berlin Wall that our adversary has successfully erected between us for so long. And may Jesus Christ guide my branches over that wall to join with the hearts of the righteous and the faithful.

For at the end of the day, which is very soon, we all must be one man churches. One cannot subcontract out one’s faith or one’s salvation or one’s spirituality to any church, not even to the true church. This being the first commandment.
