'Few are those who see with their own eyes and feel with their own hearts' - Albert Einstein
We have 4 accounts of various aspects of the Last supper. In this section we are not going to look at the second meaning of these accounts here. We are just going to piece them together to find our what precisely happened at the last supper in the literal meaning. Although of course it was a very symbolic celebration! We list the 4 accounts and then we put the Jigsaw together paying attention to every single word (using the Greek on occasion). Because when Jesus said:
17 Indeed, it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away than for one particle of a letter of the Law to go unfulfilled (Luke 16).
We believe he meant it. We also know that God's law is the whole bible. We realise that every letter in the holy book is chosen by a God who is actually more intelligent than us and has no particular difficulty in expressing himself in a literary form either in Hebrew or in Greek having invented both of these languages along with a multitude of others in a split second during the days of the tower of Babel, some 4000 years ago. Perhaps the best way to do this is to get 4 large print bibles and open them at Matthew 26, Mark14, Luke 22 and John 13?
Again we do not view the various discrepancies between the accounts as mere journalistic viewpoints, as if God has an editorial capability that is somewhat less impressive than that of the New York Times (which would not be hard). We view them as the perfect words of a perfect God. And we grapple with them in our imperfection.
20 When, now, it had become evening, he was reclining
at the table with the 12 disciples.
21 While they were eating, he said: Truly I say to you, One of you will betray me.
22 Being very much grieved at this, they commenced each and every one to say to him: Lord, it is not I, is it?
23 In reply he said: He that dips his hand with me in the bowl is the one that will betray me.
24 True, the Son of man is going away, just as it is written concerning him, but woe to that man through whom the Son of man is betrayed! It would have been finer for him if that man had not been born.
25 By way of reply Judas, who was about to betray him, said: It is not I, is it, Rabbi? He said to him: You yourself said [it].
26 As they continued eating, Jesus took a loaf and, after saying a blessing, he broke it and, giving it to the disciples, he said: Take, eat. This is my body [Jesus' human body, the validation sacrifice for the 1AC].
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 [not drink out of it you singular; so they passed it around themselves]
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 the whole salvation plan, with 3 branches, being the 3 master salvation covenants. We all end up in the ARC or in Gehenna. We are all eventually saved by Jesus. All branches end up in the root which is him. "Furthermore, there is no salvation in anyone else, for there is not another name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must get saved" Acts 4:12. There are many names under heaven that have been given among men by which we can or may be saved. These are the names of all of the mediators of all of the salvation covenants. But at some point we must be saved by Jesus since he is exclusive on getting everlasting life. There is no other mediator of this. All other salvation covenants have alternatives in different systems or through different paths in a system. Abraham is the father of us all in this system and so by him, and he was ransomed by Jesus, we are be saved temporarily until we are saved by Melchizedek. The blessing of Abraham is by means of Christ Jesus - Galatians 3:14] until that day when I drink it new with you [plural] in the kingdom of my Father
30 Finally, after singing praises, they went out to the Mount of Olives (Matthew 26).
17 After evening had fallen he came with the 12.
18 And as they were reclining at the table and eating, Jesus said: Truly I say to you, One of you, who is eating with me, will betray me.
19 They started to be grieved and to say to him one by one: It is not I, is it?
20 He said to them: It is one of the 12, who is dipping with me into the common bowl.
21 True, the Son of man is going away, just as it is written concerning him, but woe to that man through whom the Son of man is betrayed! It would have been finer for that man if he had not been born.
22 And as they continued eating, he took a loaf [of the FRC], said a blessing, broke it and gave it to them, and said: Take it [not eat it!]. This is my body [actually it is the body of Melchizedek who was Jared, the 2nd Adam and Michael's firstborn human son. Michael does not own the body of Melchizedek. But he did produce it. Mel was one of his sons, one of his bodies by production, not by ownership. My boy! So it was his body in the sense that he produced it, he made it. A Van Gough is a Van Gough even after it is sold to someone else].
23 And taking a cup [of the FRC], he offered thanks and gave it to them, and they all drank out of it [this cup is not passed around for there is no body for it to flow around. It is passed to each one by the priest as in the case of the bread - like they do in Babylon. The 1NC priest will be sealed into the FRC and therefore clean to say the blessing on that cup! He is also clean to hand it to a son of Abraham. But they are not clean to pass it to each other!]
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 144,000. The blood of Melchizedek was the blood of Jesus since Melchizedek was Jared, the 2nd Adam and the firstborn human son of Michael. It too is poured out for many, like the 1AC. But it is not poured out for the forgiveness of sins].
25 Truly I say to you, I shall by no means drink anymore of the product of the vine ['the blood' of a sealing covenant. This refers to the cup of the FRC and is true of the cup of the ARC] 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)
12 And that [man] will show you a large upper room
[for heavenly kings as opposed to earthly
kings] furnished. Get [it] ready there.
13 So they departed and found it just as he had said to them, and they got the Passover ready.
14 At length when the hour came, he reclined at the table, and the apostles with him.
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] [when the last 6,000 1NC reserves come in on 2016Tebbeth14 and 2016Shebat14 and 2016Adar14, and eat the completed meal which includes the final course of the post sacrificial vegetarian or fish Christian food] in the kingdom of God.
17 And, taking-with-the-hand/grasping a cup [dexomai] [the cup of the ARC], 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 any sealing covenant. This refers to the cup of the ARC and is true for 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, receiving BUT NOT EATING 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].
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 [this may also mean that the cup is poured out but not drunk for a period. If there is no 1NC saint present, the cup should still be poured out!!].
21 But, look! the hand of my betrayer is with me at the table.
22 Because the Son of man is going his way according to what is marked out; all the same, woe to that man through whom he is betrayed!
23 So they started to discuss among themselves the question of which of them would really be the one that was about to do this.
24 However, there also arose a heated dispute among them over which one of them seemed to be greatest.
25 But he said to them: The kings of the nations lord it over them, and those having authority over them are called Benefactors.
26 you, though, are not to be that way. But let him that is the greatest among you become as the youngest, and the one acting as chief as the one ministering.
27 For which one is greater, the one reclining at the table or the one ministering? Is it not the one reclining at the table? But I am in your midst as the one ministering.
28 However, you are the ones that have stuck with me in my trials;
29 and I make a covenant with you, just as my Father has made a covenant with me, for a kingdom,
30 that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones to judge the 12 tribes of Israel.
31 Simon, Simon, look! Satan has demanded to have you men to sift you as wheat.
32 But I have made supplication for you that your faith may not give out; and you, when once you have returned, strengthen your brothers.
33 Then he said to him: Lord, I am ready to go with you both into prison and into death.
34 But he said: I tell you, Peter, A cock will not crow today until you have 3 times denied knowing me.
35 He also said to them: When I sent you forth without purse and food pouch and sandals, you did not want for anything, did you? They said: No!
36 Then he said to them: But now let the one that has a purse take it up, likewise also a food pouch; and let the one having no sword sell his outer garment and buy one.
37 For I tell you that this which is written must be accomplished in me, namely, 'And he was reckoned with lawless ones.' For that which concerns me is having an accomplishment.
38 Then they said: Lord, look! here are 2 swords. He said to them: It is enough.
39 On going out he went as customarily to the Mount of Olives; and the disciples also followed him (Luke 22).
1 Now, because he knew before the festival of the
Passover that his hour had come for him to move out of this world to the Father, Jesus, having loved his own that were in the world, loved them to the end. (John 13 NWT)
2 So, while the evening meal was going on, the Devil having already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon, to betray him,
3 he, knowing that the Father had given all things into [his] hands and that he came forth from God and was going to God,
4 got up from the evening meal and laid aside his outer garments. And, taking a towel, he girded himself.
5 After that he put water into a basin and started to wash the feet of the disciples and to dry them off with the towel with which he was girded.
6 And so he came to Simon Peter. He said to him: Lord, are you washing my feet?
7 In answer Jesus said to him: What I am doing you do not understand at present, but you will understand after these things.
8 Peter said to him: You will certainly never wash my feet. Jesus answered him: Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.
9 Simon Peter said to him: Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head.
10 Jesus said to him: He that has bathed does not need to have more than his feet washed, but is wholly clean. And you men are clean, but not all.
11 He knew, indeed, the man betraying him. This is why he said: Not all of you are clean.
12 When, now, he had washed their feet and had put his outer garments on and laid himself down at the table again, he said to them: Do you know what I have done to you?
13 you address me, 'Teacher,' and, 'Lord,' and you speak rightly, for I am such.
14 Therefore, if I, although Lord and Teacher, washed your feet, you also ought to wash the feet of one another.
15 For I set the pattern for you, that, just as I did to you, you should do also [the 1NC reserve kings are to be baptised in water by LWs who are ex JWs. The feet are the last 10 months of the 1NC reserve kings from 2016Tebbeth14 to 2017Heshvan14. Jesus (who is acting through Elijah4 here) takes off his outer garments because the LWs give the priesthood over to the 1NC reserve kings for those 3 days. We dry their feet because we give them a completed water baptism. That being the power of our loins. So we sacrifice to Jehovah for 3 days in the wilderness as Moses requested. And the lambs chosen are all in the first year of water baptism into the LWs and none of them gets to be more than one year old before they die physically. This is therefore a real sacrifice. We enter them into a 300 day countdown to 2017Heshvan14, the end of the 1NC reserve presence].
16 Most truly I say to you, A slave is not greater than his master [So obey the latter and not the former when there is a conflict], nor is one that is sent forth greater than the one that sent him.
17 If you know these things, happy you are if you do them [for then you will become an LW early, in time to be a saint]
18 I am not talking about all of you; I know the ones I have chosen [to be my wife].But it is in order that the Scripture might be fulfilled, 'He that used to feed on my bread has lifted up his heel against me.'
19 From this moment on I am telling you before it occurs, in order that when it does occur you may believe that I am [he].
20 Most truly I say to you, He that receives anyone I send receives me [also]. In turn he that receives me, receives [also] him that sent me.
21 After saying these things, Jesus became troubled in spirit, and he bore witness and said: Most truly I say to you, One of you will betray me.
22 The disciples began to look at one another, being at a loss as to which one he was saying [it] about.
23 There was reclining in front of Jesus' bosom one of his disciples, and Jesus loved him.
24 Therefore Simon Peter nodded to this one and said to him: Tell who it is about whom he is saying [it].
25 So the latter leaned back upon the breast of Jesus and said to him: Lord, who is it?
26 Therefore Jesus answered: It is that one to whom I shall give the morsel that I dip. And so, having dipped the morsel, he took and gave it to Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot.
27 And after the morsel then Satan entered into the latter. Jesus, therefore, said to him: What you are doing get done more quickly.
28 However, none of those reclining at the table knew for what purpose he said this to him.
29 Some, in fact, were imagining, since Judas was holding the money box, that Jesus was telling him: Buy what things we need for the festival, or that he should give something to the poor.
30 Therefore, after he received the morsel, he went out immediately. And it was night.
31 Hence when he had gone out, Jesus said: Now the Son of man is glorified, and God is glorified in connection with him.
32 And God will himself glorify him, and he will glorify him immediately.
33 Little children, I am with you a little longer. You will look for me; and just as I said to the Jews, 'Where I go you cannot come,' I say also to you at present.
34 I am giving you a new commandment, that you love one another; just as I have loved you, that you also love one another.
35 By this all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love among yourselves.
36 Simon Peter said to him: Lord, where are you going? Jesus answered: Where I am going you cannot follow me now, but you will follow afterwards.
37 Peter said to him: Lord, why is it I cannot follow you at present? I will surrender my soul in your behalf.
38 Jesus answered: Will you surrender your soul in my behalf? Most truly I say to you: A cock will by no means crow until you have disowned me 3 times (John 13).
We also have the account by Paul in 1 Corinthians 11. Paul himself only understood the loaf of the 1NC and the cup of the 1NC at the time he wrote this letter. But his words are of course inspired...
18 For first of all, when you come together in a congregation, I hear divisions exist among you; and in some measure I believe it.
19 For there must also be sects among you, that the persons approved may also become manifest among you [in the greater meaning we have the sect of Laodicea]
20 Therefore, when you come together to one place, it is not possible to eat the Lord's evening meal.
21 For, when you eat [it], each one takes his own evening meal beforehand, so that one is hungry but another is intoxicated [being hungry might lead one to eat the lamb before the first loaf, and being drunk might lead one to drink the wrong cup].
22 Certainly you do have houses for eating and drinking, do you not? [Yes, the houses of the 1AC, the FRC, the ARC and the 1NC in the greater meaning. The 4 loaves and cups of which houses are drunk at the Passover] Or do you despise the congregation of God and make those who have nothing ashamed? What shall I say to you? Shall I commend you? In this I do not commend you. (1 Corinthians 11 NWT).
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 [of the 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 [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].
25 He did likewise respecting the cup 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 [doing this meaning giving thanks for and drinking the cup of the 1NC which represents John's angelic life, the blood of the JAC. But more generally keep giving thanks for and drinking all the 4 cups of the Passover].
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 .
27 Consequently whoever eats the loaf or drinks the cup of the Lord [the loaf and the cup of the ARC] unworthily will be guilty respecting the body and the blood of the Lord [The angelic body and the angelic life of Michael.].
28 First let a man approve himself after scrutiny [make sure he is a 1NC saint - the LWs know the rules for this scrutiny, the JWs do not. Gordon knows for he is the doorkeeper, the one who shuts without anyone opening and opens without anyone shutting], and thus let him eat of the loaf and drink of the cup.
29 For he that eats and drinks, eats and drinks judgment against himself if he does not discern the body [of Christ, the remnant. We must get the unclean things out of the temple of the body of Christ - we have seen this unclean state of affairs before in the old testament with the physical temple several times].
30 That is why many among you are weak and sickly, and quite a few are sleeping [in death].
31 But if we would discern what we ourselves are, we would not be judged.
32 However, when we are judged, we are disciplined by Jehovah, that we may not become condemned with the world.
33 Consequently, my brothers, when you come together to eat [it], wait for one another.
34 If anyone is hungry, let him eat at home, that you may not come together for judgment [So this meal is not to be eaten at home, but when the congregation all comes together, the congregation being the greater family. The hunger is not for the bread of the emblems first century Christians were not that aspiritual. It was for the lovely roasting Passover lamb itself. If one ate some of that before the first cup then one ruined the festival for oneself. This statement proves that at least one cup and loaf were taken before the meal]. But the remaining matters I will set in order when I get there. (1 Corinthians 11).
Earlier in this letter to the Corinthians we read:
16 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not a sharing in the
blood of the Christ [Well yes but through a
tortuous route. For the 1NC is by virtue of Michael's blood, but the blood of
that covenant is the blood of John. However his blood washes Jacob, the system
mediator, and Jacob's blood washes Michael's, then that blood washes the sons of
the 1NC. So it is a sharing in the blood of the Christ, blood washed by the
blood of the associated angel of John the baptist]? The loaf which we break, is it not a sharing in the body of the
Christ [It is a sharing in the angelic body of
John which ransoms Jacob, who has angelic children through the sub-mediator
Jesus. So it is a sharing in the angelic body of Jesus given him by Jacob. This
is not the angelic body of Michael which body imparts everlasting life, the
minute it is eaten.]?
17 Because there is one loaf, we, although many, are one body, for we are all partaking of that one loaf [that being their mistake for over 1900 years] (1 Corinthians 10).
We are going to play Spot the Difference with these literal accounts and use the Jigsaw Principle of the Code.
Since blood flows round a body we know that each cup of wine, which represents blood, is related to one particular loaf of bread, which represents the body wherein the blood of that cup flows. We can also deduce from this symbolism that the loaf is always eaten before its cup is drunk, since the blood needs a body to flow around. We present the 4 relevant sections again together for ease of reference below:
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, took-with-his-hand [dexamenoV]
a cup [FRC a cup that he recognized, but that
did not contain his blood. It contained the blood of Melchizedek. He would have
said this is my blood had the cup contained it], 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 [because he drank this cup after the other sealing cup of the ARC. The product of the vine is the finished product of the vine, the harvested grape, a ripe grape, a sealed person. This represents a sealing covenant].
19 Also, he took a loaf [ARC. The loaf of verse 19 was eaten before the cup of verse 17 was drunk. But 'also' is not order preserving], 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).
If you read the above as a Jew knowing that 2 cups are drunk before the meal,
one cup with the meal and one cup after the meal (at the Jewish Passover), then
it is easier to see which cup
represents which covenant. If not then you need to scrutinize the words very
Common to Matthew and Mark
Loaf: Took, as they
continued eating, blessed, broke, given to them: Take, eat this is my body
Cup: Took, thanks given, given to them, they all drank out of it: This is my 'blood of the covenant,' which is to be poured out in behalf of many.
Unique to Luke
Cup: Accepted, gave thanks: Take this and pass it from one to another among yourselves
Common to Luke and Corinthians
Loaf: Took, gave thanks,
broken, given to them: This is my body, which is to be given on your behalf.
Keep doing this in remembrance of me.
Cup: After the evening meal: This cup is the new covenant by virtue of my blood, which is to be poured out in your behalf.
The Loaf of Matthew and Mark was eaten during the meal. So its associated cup must also have been consumed during the meal because one cannot separate the two emblems of one validation sacrifice. Both emblems must be taken with the meal or both must be taken not with the meal depending on the relationship between the validation sacrifice they represent and the symbolic meaning of the meal. Also if the loaf was taken with the meal and the cup of the same covenant was taken after the meal, then there would have been a large time gap between the two emblems. But why define a body and wait for a while before having the blood flow round it? So the cup of Luke and Corinthians drunk after the meal was not the cup associated with the loaf of Matthew and Mark, which loaf was eaten during the meal. We know that the cup drunk after the meal was the cup of the new covenant and it was poured out ‘in your behalf’, whereas the cup of Matthew and Mark was my ‘blood of the covenant’ which was poured out in behalf of the many. Now the apostles were certainly not ‘the many’ and neither are the first new covenant saints ‘the many’ since there are only 144,000 of them. So the ‘blood of the covenant’ must relate to the 1AC or to the FRC since this covenant system saves ‘the many’ when compared to the ARC and the JAC system. We know that Melchizedek who was Jared validated the FRC, not Jesus. So ‘my blood of the covenant’ must be that of the 1AC, since it is Jesus’ blood. So Jesus’ human body validated the 1AC.
Now Jesus did not give thanks twice for any validation sacrifice, or for any one covenant, so each pair of emblems has only one giving of thanks. Knowing this we deduce that the loaf of Luke and Corinthians, which represents Jesus’ body, and which he gives thanks for, cannot relate to the cup of Matthew and Mark, which he also gives thanks for, which is Jesus’ blood of the 1AC.
So it must by Jesus angelic body rather than his human body. So it is the loaf of the ARC. This is why Jesus said: Keep doing this in remembrance of me, for he was Michael not Jesus the non adamic surrogate son of Joseph. This loaf was HIM!!!
So the Loaf of Matthew and Mark, which was also Jesus’ body, must have been his human body. So it was the loaf of the 1AC. So Matthew and Mark refer simply to the loaf and the cup of the 1AC.
Now the first cup mentioned in Luke is drunk before the loaf of the ARC, so it cannot be the blood of the ARC or the 1NC. This cup was accepted rather than being taken as the cup of the 1AC was. So it was not the cup of the 1AC. So it was the cup of the FRC, the superior covenant to the 1AC.
So, in summary, The first cup mentioned in Luke is the cup of the FRC, the loaf in Luke and Corinthians is the loaf of the ARC, the cup and loaf in Matthew and Mark are the emblems of the 1AC and the second cup in Luke and the cup in Corinthians are the cup of the 1NC.
We know that the apostles were beneficiaries of the 1EC, the ICC and the CRC from a priestly standpoint, and were beneficiaries of the 1AC the FRC the 1NC the JAC and the ARC from a salvation standpoint. The 1AC had Jesus the human for the validation sacrifice, the 1NC and the JAC in fact have John the Baptist for the validation sacrifice as we shall see. The FRC had Melchizedek in Jared for its validation sacrifice, and the ARC had Michael in Jesus for its validation sacrifice. So the apostles were the beneficiaries of covenants covered by 4 validation sacrifices from a salvation standpoint (and 2 further validation sacrifices of Isaac for the ICC and of Gabriel for the CRC from a priesthood standpoint). So the last supper should at least have involved 4 sets of emblems, 4 cups and 4 loaves, 4 the 4 salvation covenant validation sacrifices.
Another way of seeing that several cups were drunk is that Judas was still at the table after they had had the evening meal and after Jesus said the blessing on the cup, which is 'the new covenant'. So Judas certainly drank the cup which was drunk during the meal and ate the related bread. In fact Mark tells us that 'they all drank out of it', referring to the cup drunk with the meal. And Jesus commanded them during the meal saying: Drink out of it all of you. But Judas cannot have drunk the wine of the new covenant, because Jesus was not about to marry him, having effectively called him unclean earlier in the evening.
We have seen that the ‘blood of the covenant’ poured out for the many, which was drunk during the meal is the blood of the 1AC, which has many many covenanters. The reason that it was drunk during the meal is that the Passover meal stands for the Law in the symbolism of the Lord’s Evening meal. The Law was the spiritual meal that the Jews got after the Passover in Egypt. And the Law was a subcovenant of the 1AC.
Now the ARC was made a long time before the Law, and so the loaf of the ARC is eaten before the Passover meal , which Luke indicated by omission but we have now proved with logic and by paying attention to every word of the 4 accounts. The FRC and the ARC are drunk before the meal, the 1AC is drunk during the meal and the 1NC is drunk after the meal because that covenant was the end of the Law, which the meal symbolised. The 1NC was not a part of the law, it superceded the law. The ARC is drunk before the FRC (not withstanding the order of appearance in Luke) because it was made with Michael and Adam on 3993Nisan14 BC before the FRC was made between Melchizedek and Adam on some Nisan14 after Jared (who was Melchizedek) was born.
To cut a long story short the finished jigsaw of the whole meal is something like this:
 Evening falls on Thursday March 31st 33 CE (33Nisan14)
 Jesus reclines at the table with 12 in an upper room (Matthew 26:20).
 Jesus: And he said to them: I have greatly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer; for I tell you, I will not eat it again until it becomes fulfilled in the kingdom of God (Luke 22:15,16).
[4a] Jesus took a loaf (1st loaf, the loaf of the ARC), gave thanks, blessed it, broke it, and gave it to them (Luke 22:19)
Jesus: This is my body which is to be given in your behalf. Keep doing this in remembrance of me (Luke 22:19).
Inferred - Jesus took a cup (1st cup, the cup of the ARC), blessed it, and gave it to them
[4b] Jesus accepted a loaf
(2nd loaf, the loaf of the FRC). Said a blessing and broke the loaf (Inferred
from Luke 22:17)
Jesus accepted a cup (2nd cup, the cup of the FRC). Gave thanks, said a blessing and said:
17 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 [the blood of Melchizedek of the FRC] until the kingdom of God arrives (Luke 22).
[4c] Start eating the Passover meal (Matthew 26:20).
 Jesus got up during the meal laid aside his outer garments and girding himself with a towel he put water into a basin and started to wash the feet of his disciples and to dry them off with the towel with which he was girded (John13:5).
 Peter: Lord are you washing my feet (John 13:6).
 Jesus: What I am doing you do not understand at present, but you will understand after theses things (John 13:7).
 Peter: You will certainly never wash my feet (John 13:8)
 Jesus: Unless I wash you, you have no part with me (John 13:8).
 Peter: Lord not my feet only but also my hands and my head (John 13:9).
 Jesus: He that has bathed does not need to have more than his feet washed, but is wholly clean. And you men are clean but not all (John 13:10).
 He knew, indeed, the man betraying him. This is why he said: Not all of
you are clean.
When, now, he had washed their feet and had put his outer garments on and laid himself down at the table again, he said to them: Do you know what I have done to you?
You address me, 'Teacher,' and, 'Lord,' and you speak rightly for I am such.
Therefore, if I, although Lord and Teacher, washed your feet, you also ought to wash the feet of one another.
For I set the pattern for you, that, just as I did to you, you should do also.
Most truly I say to you, A slave is not greater than his master nor is one that is sent forth greater than the one that sent him. If you know these things, happy you are if you do them.
I am not talking about all of you; I know the ones I have chosen. But it is in order that the Scripture might be fulfilled,
'He that used to feed on my bread has lifted up his heel against me.'
From this moment on I am telling you before it occurs, in order that when it does occur you may believe that I am [he].
Most truly I say to you: He that receives anyone I send receives me [also]. In turn he that receives me, receives [also] him that sent me.
After saying these things, Jesus became troubled in spirit, and he bore witness and said... (John 13:11-21).
 Jesus: Truly I say to you, one of you who is eating with me will betray me (Matthew 26:21, Mark 14:18, John 13:21)
 The disciples began to look at one another, being at a loss as to which one he was saying [it] about (John 13:22).
 Each and every one said: Lord it is not I is it? (Matthew 26:22)
 Jesus: It is one of the 12 who is dipping with me into the common bowl (Mark 14:20)
 Jesus: He that dips his hand with me in the bowl is the one that will betray me (Matthew 26:23)
 Jesus: True, the Son of man is going away, just as it is written concerning him, but woe to that man through whom the Son of man is betrayed! It would have been finer for him if that man had not been born (Matthew 26:24, Mark 14:21)
 Judas: It is not I is it Rabbi? (Matthew 26:25).
 Jesus: You yourself said it (Matthew 26:25).
 Jesus took a loaf (3rd loaf, the loaf of the 1AC), gave thanks, said a blessing, broke the loaf, gave it to the disciples saying:
26 Take eat, this is my body (Matthew 26, Mark 14:22-24)
 Jesus took a cup (3rd cup, the cup of the 1AC), gave thanks, said a blessing, gave it to the disciples saying:
27 Drink out of it all of you, 28 for this is my blood of the covenant (1AC) which is being poured out on behalf of many for the forgiveness of sins (Matthew 26, Mark 14:22,24).
They all drank out of it [including Judas] (Mark 14:23).
 Jesus: But I tell you I will by no means henceforth drink any of this product of the vine [the blood of Jesus of the 1AC] until the day when I drink it new with you in the Kingdom of my Father (Matthew 26:29).
 25 Truly I say to you, I shall by no means drink anymore of the product of the vine [the blood of Michael of the ARC] until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God (Mark 14).
The product of the vine is the blood of the ARC. Michael is the vine.
 Evening meal ends (Luke 22:20).
 Inferred - Jesus too a loaf (the 4th loaf, the loaf of the 1NC), gave thanks, blessed it, broke it and gave it to the disciples and the disciples ate the bread.
 Also, the cup (the 4th cup, the cup of the 1NC) in the same way after they had the evening meal, he saying: This cup means the new covenant by virtue of my blood, which is to be poured out in your behalf (Luke 22:20). [But he did not give the cup to his disciples just yet - Notice he did not say that he would not drink anymore of this product of the vine until the Kingdom].
 But, look! the hand of my betrayer is with me at the table. Because the Son of man is going his way according to what is marked out; all the same, woe to that man through whom he is betrayed! (Luke 22:21,22).
 So they started to discuss among themselves the question of which of them would really be the one that was about to do this. However, there also arose a heated dispute among them over which one of them seemed to be greatest (Luke 22:23,24).
 There was reclining in front of Jesus' bosom one of his disciples, and
Jesus loved him.
Therefore Simon Peter nodded to this one and said to him: Tell who it is about whom he is saying [it].
So the latter leaned back upon the breast of Jesus and said to him: Lord, who is it?
Therefore Jesus answered: It is that one to whom I shall give the morsel that I dip. And so, having dipped the morsel, he took and gave it to Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot.
And after the morsel then Satan entered into the latter. Jesus, therefore, said to him: What you are doing get done more quickly.
However, none of those reclining at the table knew for what purpose he said this to him.
Some, in fact, were imagining, since Judas was holding the money box, that Jesus was telling him: Buy what things we need for the festival, or that he should give something to the poor.
Therefore, after he received the morsel, he went out immediately. And it was night (John 13:23-30).
 Jesus: The kings of the nations lord it over them, and those having
authority over them are called Benefactors.
You, though, are not to be that way. But let him that is the greatest among you become as the youngest, and the one acting as chief as the one ministering.
However, you are the ones that have stuck with me in my trials;
and I make a covenant with you, just as my Father has made a covenant with me, for a kingdom,
that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones to judge the 12 tribes of Israel (Luke 22:25-30). Now Jesus gave the cup to the 11 apostles, after the covenant was made.
 Hence when he (Judas)
had gone out, Jesus said: Now the Son of man is glorified, and God is glorified
in connection with him. And God will himself glorify him, and he will glorify
Little children, I am with you a little longer. You will look for me; and just as I said to the Jews, 'Where I go you cannot
come,' I say also to you at present.
I am giving you a new commandment, that you love one another; just as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love among yourselves. (John 13:31-35).
 Simon Peter said to him: Lord, where are you going?
Jesus answered: Where I am going you cannot follow me now, but you will follow afterwards.
Peter said to him: Lord, why is it I cannot follow you at present? I will surrender my soul in your behalf.
Jesus answered: Will you surrender your soul in my behalf? (John 13:36,37).
Simon, look! Satan has demanded to have you men to sift you as
But I have made supplication for you that your faith may not give out; and you, when once you have returned, strengthen your brothers (Luke 22:25,32)
 Peter: Lord, I am ready to go with you both into prison and into death (Luke 22:33).
 Jesus: Most truly I say to you, Peter, A cock will not crow today until you have 3 times denied knowing me (Luke 22:34, John 13:38).
 Jesus: When I sent you forth without purse and food pouch and sandals, you did not want for anything, did you?
 11 apostles: No (Luke 22:35)
 Jesus: But now let the one that has a purse take it up, likewise also a
food pouch; and let the one having no sword
sell his outer garment and buy one. For I tell you that this which is written must be accomplished in me, namely, 'And he was reckoned with lawless ones.' For that which concerns me is having an accomplishment (Luke 22:36,37)
 Then they said: Lord, look! here are two swords. He said to them: It is enough (Luke 22:38)
 Sang praises (Matthew 26:30).
 Went to the mount of olives (Matthew 26:30).
This is how we worked it out brothers – sorry, the logic is a bit circuitous here!
The third cup, the blood of the covenant for the many, the cup of the 1AC, has nothing to do with the new covenant because it is for the many and the new covenant is for the few, which few are referred to by 'in your behalf' in the 4 accounts. But whose blood was the blood of the covenant in the case of 1AC?
Well, in the case of the law covenant we know that the blood of the bull was the ‘blood of the covenant’:
8 So Moses took the blood and sprinkled it upon the people and said: Here is the blood of the covenant that Jehovah has concluded with you as respects all these words (Exodus 24).
In the case of the Land and Circumcision Covenant we have the sacrifice by prepared by Abraham but stipulated and offered up by God:
9 In turn he said to him: Take for
me a three-year-old heifer and a three-year-old she-goat and a three-year-old
ram and a turtledove and a young pigeon.
10 So he took all these to himself and cut them in two and put each part of them so as to match the other, but the birds he did not cut in pieces (Genesis 15).
A highly symbolic sacrifice, if ever there was one. But certainly these animals provided the blood of the Land and Circumcision Covenant.
Now Paul has explained to us that every covenant needs to be validated by a blood sacrifice:
16 For where there is a covenant,
the death of the [human] covenanter needs to be furnished.
17 For a covenant is valid over dead [victims], since it is not in force at any time while the [human] covenanter is living.
18 Consequently neither was the former [covenant] inaugurated without blood....
19 For when every commandment according to the Law had been spoken by Moses to all the people, he took the blood of the young bulls and of the goats with water and scarlet wool and hyssop and sprinkled the book itself and all the people,
20 saying: This is the blood of the covenant that God has laid as a charge upon you....
22 Yes, nearly all things are cleansed with blood according to the Law, and unless blood is poured out no forgiveness takes place... (Hebrews 9).
So every covenant needs a blood sacrifice to validate it. Now Paul describes a covenant, which is validated by God.
17 Further, I say this: As to the covenant previously validated by God, the Law that has come into being four hundred and thirty years later does not invalidate it, so as to abolish the promise (Galatians 3).
So what did God do? The answer is this:
The sun was now setting and a dense darkness came and, look! a smoking furnace
and a fiery torch that passed in between these pieces.
18 On that day Jehovah concluded with Abram a covenant, saying: "To your seed I will give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates (Genesis 15).
God himself burnt up the sacrifice that Abraham has prepared in Genesis 15 for the Land and Circumcision covenant. But who was the sacrifice for the 1AC?
Well, remember in Genesis 22, how Abraham as good as sacrificed Isaac, his firstborn son. If he had actually sacrificed Isaac then we might possibly have the missing blood of the First Abrahamic Covenant. But what happened was that God stopped him at the last minute. Isaac asked Abraham: Where is the sheep for the burnt offering?
8 To this Abraham said: God will provide himself the sheep for the burnt offering, my son. And both of them walked on together (Genesis 22).
Then, when Abraham was just about to kill his son with the knife:
11 Jehovah's angel began calling to
him out of the heavens and saying: Abraham, Abraham! to which he answered: Here
12 And he went on to say: Do not put out your hand against the boy and do not do anything at all to him, for now I do know that you are God-fearing in that you have not withheld your son, your only one, from me.
13 At that Abraham raised his eyes and looked and there, deep in the foreground, there was a ram caught by its horns in a thicket. So Abraham went and took the ram and offered it up for a burnt offering in place of his son.
14 And Abraham began to call the name of that place Jehovah-jireh. This is why it is customarily said today: In the mountain of Jehovah it will be provided (Genesis 22).
Jehovah - Jireh: 'God will provide'. In the mountain of Jehovah it will be provided. Yes it was Abraham who sacrificed the sheep, but the blood of a sheep can plainly provide no redemption for mankind, it is only of a symbolic value. The sheep in the thicket actually was the validation sacrifice for the 3AC, which was not a Main covenant. The 3AC and the IAC were merely promises about a seed who would get the main covenant of the JAC.
Jacob, the main mediator of the JAC, was ransomed by John the Baptist. He was the validation sacrifice for the JAC (we state this here, we prove it later). He was the sheep that God provided, since John was non-adamic. The sheep of John the baptist came from heavenly mount Zion, the mountain of God, God's heavenly administration. The 1NC is a subcovenant of the JAC, so the cup of the First New Covenant contains the blood of John the Baptist.
Fine, but who was the validation sacrifice for the 1AC?
Well of course it was Jesus Christ. He too came from heavenly mount Zion, a symbolism for God's administration in heaven (The Kings of Israel/Judah had their palace upon mount Zion, a hill in Jerusalem). But how can one son provide the blood for 2 cups, for 2 covenants, the 1AC and the ARC? He cannot. But look there were two Jesus's ! The first was the surrogate son of both Joseph and Mary, who died at his baptism on 29Tishri10 (7th October 29 CE). The second was Michael Christ, or Michael in Jesus, the Jesus Christ of his ministry, who died at his crucifixion or impalement on 33Nisan14 (April 1st 33 CE) - see [14b].
God did not sacrifice the first Jesus in the Jordan river. Immanuel was raptured just as Michael entered his body, since he was non-adamic. It was Caiaphas, the high priest under law, who sacrificed the human body of Jesus, thereby ending both the law and the necessity for Jews to pay any attention to his own priesthood. So we have at last found the validation sacrifice for the First Abrahamic covenant - Jesus Christ the non adamic human.
But look at the faith of Abraham, truly this is what our God foresaw in this man and why he made the promise to him. He would have sacrificed his firstborn and only son (who was willing) in validation of the 3AC had God not stopped him (the 3AC did not need such a sacrifice in any event). And look at Abraham's reasoning behind making this near sacrifice:
17 By faith Abraham, when he was
tested, as good as offered up Isaac, and the man that had gladly received the
promises attempted to offer up [his] only-begotten [son],
18 although it had been said to him: What will be called 'your seed' will be through Isaac.
19 But he reckoned that God was able to raise him up even from the dead; and from there he did receive him also in an illustrative way (Hebrews 11).
This wasn’t blind faith, it was the rationalised wisdom of a spiritual man, who saw what no other man could see by using his power of reason, to see with the eyes of his mind.
33 Oh the depth of God's riches and wisdom and knowledge! How unsearchable his judgments [are] and past tracing out his ways [are]! (Romans 11).
So the third cup was the 1AC, and the blood of the covenant was the blood of Jesus the carpenter's son.
Now we have stated that John the Baptist was the validation sacrifice for the new covenant, but let us actually prove it here. The first thing to realise is that it wasn't Michael. The reason we know this is that he died to ransom Adam, so he was the validation sacrifice of the angelic ransom covenant, the ARC, which is superior to all covenants, being the final destination of all who are saved. The new covenant is way down the tree from there. This is why Jesus did not say of the new covenant cup: This is my blood of the new covenant. What he said was: This is the new covenant by virtue of my blood.
This statement clearly implies that although his blood is 'responsible' for the new covenant, the blood of the covenant it isn't. In other words as we have said above, Michael's blood validated a superior covenant.
So who validated the new covenant, who died for it? Well every day under law there were two constant feature sacrifices not one. The first one was in the evening, in the dark, not very visible, and the second was in the morning, fully visible. Since Jesus' sacrifice was in the day and was visible we are looking for a sacrifice at night, which was not so easily visible. The answer is John the baptist who was also non adamic and was possessed by Gabriel - see .
John was killed by Herod at night, before Jesus was killed. Gabriel had left him before his head was cut off however.
21 But a convenient day came along
when Herod spread an evening meal on his birthday for his top-ranking men and
the military commanders and the foremost ones of Galilee.
22 And the daughter of this very Herodias came in and danced and pleased Herod and those reclining with him. The king said to the maiden: Ask me for whatever you want, and I will give it to you.
23 Yes, he swore to her: Whatever you ask me for, I will give it to you, up to half my kingdom.
24 And she went out and said to her mother: What should I ask for? She said: The head of John the baptiser (Mark 6).
Of course John had to be non adamic, in fact he had to be possessed by the angelic priest Gabriel in order to preside over the angelic entrance of Michael into Jesus, and the temporary death of Immanuel, the carpenter's son.
So John was killed although he wasn't under an adamic death sentence, so we have a validation sacrifice here. But which covenant did he validate? To understand this one needs to look at the three Abrahamic covenants - U9 and the 3 accounts in Matthew 22, Mark12 and Luke 20 of the 7 brothers all of whom got one wife - U32. From this it is apparent that the 1AC deals with earthly resurrections, the 3AC deals with being born again and heavenly resurrections and the LCC dealt with the promised land and the exclusivity of God to the Jews up until the end of the week of years which Jesus died in the middle of.
Now we have a validation sacrifice for the 1AC, Jesus Christ. And we know that God himself, with a smoking furnace and a fiery torch, burnt up the sacrifice that Abraham had prepared, namely three 3 year old animals and 2 birds (one day, God willing, we will know why!) to validate the LCC. We have the sheep in the thicket as the validation sacrifice of the 3AC. But who ransomed Jacob and thereby validated the JAC? Well it must have been John the baptist, by a process of elimination, and by a symmetry between Gabriel and Michael and John and Jesus. For Jesus validated the Abrahamic subcovenant of Melchizedek's master covenant (the FRC) and John validated the Abrahamic/Jacobian subcovenant of Michael's master covenant (the ARC). Isaac was non adamic, he did not need to be ransomed in order to mediate any covenants, hence no validation sacrifice was necessary for the main covenant of the ICC other than his own!
Yes, it was John the baptist who also died for us. He lost his head at the request of a queen as a result of a promise of a king valid for up to half a kingdom, to validate a covenant for men to become heavenly and and earthly kings. Although of course the heavenly heads are somewhat detached from the earth.
Actually the second lamb in the constant feature is more generally saying that there are two ransoms available to mankind. The first gives us an angelic soul as our forefather Adam had. The second gives us an edenic human soul as our forefather Adam had. Now one can get that human soul either from the FRC or the CRC, but not from both. So although there a 3 master salvation covenants, we can only be ransomed by two of the three validation sacrifices available. These are what is in store for us if we just have the faith to see them.
A more mundane interpretation of the constant feature is that we should pray to God every morning and every evening. This is not a law. It is a suggestion. A prayer is a lot easier to make than a burnt offering together with its grain offering and its drink offering!!
Adam lost both his indefinitely living human body and his angelic body when he sinned. So in order for Adam to be ransomed completely, two souls must be given to God, firstly an indefinitely long human body and secondly an angelic body. The edenic human body was actually provided by Gabriel in Methuselah - U9. The angelic body was provided by Michael in Jesus. This is truly what Jesus' death was all about. Michael died as an angel as well as a human on 33Nisan14, Hence we read:
46 And Jesus called with a loud voice and said: Father into your hands I entrust my spirit. When he had said this he expired (Luke 23).
17 This is why the Father loves me,
because I surrender my soul, in order that I may receive it again.
18 No man has taken it away from me, but I surrender it of my own initiative. I have authority to surrender it, and I have authority to receive it again. The commandment on this I received from my Father (John 10).
So Jesus' spirit did not go into his angel when he died. So he died as an angel. He delivered his spirit to God, as John said:
30 When, now, he had received the sour wine, Jesus said: It has been accomplished! and, bowing his head, he delivered up [his] spirit. (John 19)
His spirit is his life, his metaphorical blood, which is integrated with his spirit body. Michael had to die as an angel, because Adam's associated angelic body did die or at least was removed by God. So one has to conclude that Michael's angelic soul was given to God in return, so Michael's spirit had no angelic body to go into when he died. So he went to Tartarus initially.
Because Michael died completely, he ransomed Adam completely. So all angelic resurrections are through Michael. He is the father, replacing Adam as father, of all angels for humans. Adam lost his associated angel in payment to God, Michael lost his instead, and gave his angelic soul to God with the words of Luke 23:46. This was the ransom. So now he has purchased from God, the rights that Adam had, to have angelic children. However Jesus' human soul only ransoms those in the First Abrahamic covenant.

Every year since the Passover was instigated, down to the very day this web page was first written (April 29, 2003), the physical Jews have always drunk 4 cups at the Passover. Secondly the Jews have eaten three matzos, loaves, placed one upon the other since 1513 BC one presumes. Now the middle loaf is cut in two by the priest and the larger part is hidden by him and then the children have to find it.
2 So, calling a young child to him, he set it in their midst
3 and said: Truly I say to you, Unless you turn around and become as young children, you will by no means enter into the kingdom of the heavens (Matthew 18).
Really, could there be a more obvious symbolism for an angelically possessed Messiah who is found by God's children. Jesus is the second loaf, his human body is the smaller bit, his angelic soul is the larger bit, the bigger deal. The angelic soul is hidden from all Christians and all Jews, except those who are God's sons. Such a simple symbolism. The first and third loaves are John after Gabriel left (the ransom for JAC), and Melchizedek inside Jared (the ransom for the FRC).
Oh you sons of Jacob, please do not let the holy spirit indefinitely make fools out of you! Wake up and grasp your destiny. True you do not have an exclusive on being God's official people any longer, but who needs an exclusive? You were the firstborn, you have his love, you had the messiah, what more do you want?
Jesus died between the two evenings marking the beginning and end of Nisan14, separated by 24 hours.
5 In the first month, on the 14th day of the month, between the two evenings is the Passover to Jehovah (Leviticus 23).
5 Then they prepared the Passover sacrifice in the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month between the two evenings [between sunset, the first evening, and the night or darkenss, the evening of Genesis 1], in the wilderness of Sinai. According to all that Jehovah had commanded Moses, so the sons of Israel did (Numbers 9).
He has to die on the same day that they slaughtered the Passover victim, for if not then he is not the greater Passover lamb. Since Moses defines that lamb as follows...
And it must continue under safeguard by you until the 14th day of this month,
and the whole congregation of the assembly of Israel must slaughter it between
the 2 evenings.
7 And they must take some of the blood and splash it upon the 2 doorposts and the upper part of the doorway belonging to the houses in which they will eat it.
8 'And they must eat the flesh on this night. They should eat it roasted with fire and with unfermented cakes along with bitter greens.
9 Do not eat any of it raw or boiled, cooked in water, but roast with fire, its head together with its shanks and its interior parts.
10 And you must not leave any of it over till morning, but what is left over of it till morning you should burn with fire.
11 And in this way you should eat it, with your hips girded, sandals on your feet and your staff in your hand; and you must eat it in haste. It is Jehovah's Passover.
12 And I must pass through the land of Egypt on this night and strike every firstborn in the land of Egypt, from man to beast; and on all the gods of Egypt I shall execute judgments. I am Jehovah (Exodus 12)
So the Passover angel struck on the night of the 14th (in fact at midnight, Exodus 11:4, 12:29).
The Hebrew day starts with sundown, the first evening, and ends with sundown 24 hours later, which is another evening. But night does not fall at sundown, it does not fall until it is completely dark with no light from the sun visible. So there is a period after sundown and before darkness, which is known as twilight. At the end of the twilight period, darkness or night proper begins. Now the Hebrew phrase translated "between the two evenings" literally means "in the midst of the evenings".
The word meaning "evenings" is from a root meaning: To become dark. And is in the dual number, which is a special form of plural used for two things, rather than the general plural which can mean a larger number of things than two obviously. Hence the translation "between the two evenings". But a more literal translation would be "in the midst of the two becoming darks." But there are two phases to the becoming dark that occurs during a day. One is sundown and the other is the onset of total darkness. So both of these qualify as 'becoming darks' or evenings. In fact, the word for 'evening' really means both of these things. So the lamb was slaughtered between sundown and darkness in the twilight at the start of Nisan14. This is when the Samaritans slaughter it today.
The reason that the Hebrews had two evenings was that they
had two days. The 12 hour daylight day ran from first light (before sunrise) to
the second evening (darkness). The 24 hour day ran from sunset (the first
evening) to sunset. So the first evening (sunset) was the end of their 24 hour
day and the second evening (darkness) was the end of their 12 hour day.
Now Jesus was killed at the 9th hour of the day or at around 3pm which is between the two sundowns of Nisan14, which is between the two evenings of that day taking an evening as being a sundown. The trouble lies in the ambiguity of the Hebrew word for evening which can mean sundown or the onset of total darkness.
God knows this, having invented that and all other languages. He uses that ambiguity in his Passover instructions. So Jesus did die between the two evenings, the two sundowns at the start and the end of Nisan14, and the Passover lamb which he ate also died between the two evenings, the first sundown of Nisan14 and the onset of darkness when twilight finished and night started on Nisan14.
It is interesting that Mark says:
12 Now [as regards] the first day of unfermented cakes, when they were sacrificing the Passover [victim], his disciples said to him: Where do you want us to go and prepare for you to eat the Passover? (Mark 14).
This was Nisan14, a day of unfermented cakes in that unfermented cakes were eaten with the Passover lamb. So there are two possible first days of unfermented cakes. There is the first day of the 7 day festival of unfermented cakes when no sourdough is permitted in any houses. Then there is the first day when unfermented cakes are eaten, the Passover, whereupon sourdough is actually permitted in the house.
6 And it must continue under safeguard by you until the fourteenth day of this month, and the whole congregation of the assembly of Israel must slaughter it between the two evenings (Exodus 12).
So one could not sacrifice the Passover lamb on the 13th of Nisan when said lamb had to be safeguarded in the house.
But the whole point of the Passover was that they were up all night stripping the Egyptians. You should not get to bed at a reasonable time on that day! In fact Jesus said to them that night in the garden of Gethsemane. Can you not stay awake one hour with me? He was celebrating the Passover correctly! It is the perfect festival for night owls and Gordon never realised it - doh! - dough!
Luke 22 is very interesting. It says the day of unfermented cakes now arrived on which the Passover must be sacrificed (verse 7). Then it says: And when the hour came, he reclined at the table (verse 14). Now Jesus himself told Peter and John to go and prepare for the meal. Again Luke is calling the Passover of Nisan14 a 'day of unfermented cakes' which indeed it is. But it is not a day of the 7 day festival of unfermented cakes. Now hours always relate to days in the bible and logically. So one should assume that the hour of the meal was in the day of the sacrifice. This means that they killed the lamb just after sundown, they stripped it and prepared it for cooking for an hour or so, then then roasted it for 3 or 4 hours or so and then they eat it around midnight. Now when did the Passover angel strike everyone in Egypt?
29 And it came about that at midnight Jehovah struck every firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh sitting on his throne to the firstborn of the captive who was in the prison hole, and every firstborn of beast (Exodus 12).
4 And Moses went on to say: This is what Jehovah has said,
'About midnight I am going out into the midst of Egypt,
5 and every firstborn in the land of Egypt must die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who is sitting on his throne to the firstborn of the maidservant who is at the hand mill and every firstborn of beast.
6 And there will certainly occur a great outcry in all the land of Egypt, the like of which has never yet occurred, and the like of
which will never be brought about again (Exodus 11).
So that was the hour when they eat the meal. Jesus would know, he was the Passover angel!! He would now exactly when to eat the Passover commemorating his Egyptian activities. So we should start cooking the lamb just after Sundown, not before, and we should take the meal at midnight.
The Tradition of the Samaritans today is to eat the Passover at midnight...
THE SAMARITAN PASSOVER.
BY WILLIAM E. BARTON, D. D.
On this occasion the lambs were killed just at sunset, and the supper was eaten at midnight. She tells the story in these words: "All the men and boys of the community were assembled dressed in white, waiting for sunset. The ceremony commenced about half an hour before the sun went down. They all began shouting a loud prayer, each one shouting with all his might, and quite independent of the rest. The priest then took his stand on a fallen pillar from the ruins of the ancient Herodian temple, and read aloud the twelfth chapter of Exodus, which gives the narrative of the first Passover. At his feet stood six sheep, all of them males of the first year and without blemish. They were very particular that the sheep should not be killed a minute before or after the sun went down. Just as the sun dipped into the Mediterranean the sheep were killed, the people shouting all the time. The sheep were plunged into caldrons of boiling water to enable them to remove the wool easily. The wool and entrails were thrown into the fire. The hearts, too, were thrown into the fire. When the sheep were prepared they were put upon long wooden spikes. They were then carried to a cemented pit, where they had built a large furnace, where a hot bed of coals p. 213 was ready. Into this the stakes were thrust, and the top was covered with a mat of grass. The lambs were left to roast, because they must not eat the Passover raw nor sodden with water, but roasted with fire. The pit was left in charge of the younger men. The rest went to their tents to wait for midnight. Before dispersing they all embraced and wished each other a happy feast.
"The midnight hour was announced by a herald; and they all rose in haste, put on their sandals, girded up their loins, and took their staves in their hands. The pit was uncovered, and the lambs were placed on white cloths. Each family ate by itself; or if a family was too small, two families ate together. They ate in haste; and they gathered close around the lambs to prevent the Mohammedans, who come up to torment them, from snatching any pieces of meat or bone. As each bone was picked, it was thrown right into the furnace. The fire and the full moon lit up the scene. Everything left over was burned. When all had been burned or eaten, they congratulated one another and dispersed for the night."
Dean Stanley gives in the supplement of the first volume of his Jewish Church a description of the Samaritan Passover as it was p. 214 witnessed in 1854 by Mr. Rogers, English Consul at Damascus, an account of which was afterwards published in Domestic Life in Palestine, page 281. Dean Stanley himself later witnessed the Passover, and in the same article gives interesting recollections of it. Dr. Daud Katibah, in 1900, gave to Rev. Dr. Samuel Ives Curtis an interesting account of the Passover as he had seen it, which Dr. Curtiss published in the supplement to his Primitive Semitic Religion To-day. http://www.sacred-texts.com/journals/oc/sp.htm
The Passover in 2008 was celebrated on Iyyar14, which starts at sundown April 20th. We ate the lamb at midnight God willing. We also stayed awake all night in full observance of the festival.
6. But when God had signified, that with one plague he would compel the Egyptians to let Hebrews go, he commanded Moses to tell the people that they should have a sacrifice ready, and they should prepare themselves on the tenth day of the month Xanthicus, against the fourteenth, (which month is called by the Egyptians Pharmuth, Nisan by the Hebrews; but the Macedonians call it Xanthicus,) and that he should carry the Hebrews with all they had. Accordingly, he having got the Hebrews ready for their departure, and having sorted the people into tribes, he kept them together in one place: but when the fourteenth day was come, and all were ready to depart they offered the sacrifice, and purified their houses with the blood, using bunches of hyssop for that purpose; and when they had supped, they burnt the remainder of the flesh, as just ready to depart. Whence it is that we do still offer this sacrifice in like manner to this day, and call this festival Pascha which signifies the feast of the Passover; because on that day God passed us over, and sent the plague upon the Egyptians; for the destruction of the first-born came upon the Egyptians that night, so that many of the Egyptians who lived near the king's palace, persuaded Pharaoh to let the Hebrews go. Accordingly he called for Moses, and bid them be gone; as supposing, that if once the Hebrews were gone out of the country, Egypt should be freed from its miseries. They also honored the Hebrews with gifts; some, in order to get them to depart quickly, and others on account of their neighborhood, and the friendship they had with them (Josephus - Antiquities of the Jews book II chapter 14 para 6)..
Jesus was the human body of Immanuel possessed by the angel Michael. An angel cannot marry a human, such a thing would be bestiality. So all the 12 apostles had to be angels, born again, before Jesus could propose to them, which he did at the last supper. So they were sanctified before then. Furthermore as a group they had to become divine in order that they could marry Jesus who became divine after his ascension.
Just as Mark and Luke appear ambiguous as to whether the Passover was celebrated on Nisan14 the first day of eating unfermented cakes or Nisan15 the first day of the festival of unfermented cakes, so the old testament is likewise ambiguous.
31 At once he called Moses and Aaron by night and said: Get up, get out from the midst of my people, both you and the [other] sons of Israel, and go, serve Jehovah, just as you have stated (Exodus 12).
1 Let there be an observing of the month
of Abib [Nisan], and you must
celebrate the Passover to Jehovah your God, because in the month of Abib Jehovah
your God brought you out of Egypt by night [the
night of Nisan14 when they started to leave and they left Rameses presumably
during the day of Nisan15 sleeping the night of Nisan15 in Rameses].
2 And you must sacrifice the Passover to Jehovah your God, of the flock and of the herd, in the place that Jehovah will choose to have his name reside there [near the tent of the tabernacle then in Jerusalem near Solomon's temple then in Jerusalem near Zerubbabel's temple].
3 You must eat nothing leavened together with it [the festival of the Passover] for 7 days [thereafter, making the 7 day festival of unfermented cakes with occurs together with the Passover, being the 7 days after the Passover]. You should eat together with it unfermented cakes, the bread of affliction, because it was in haste that you came out of the land of Egypt, that you may remember the day of to depart you from the land of Egypt all the days of your life [there are two ways in which this is done. One eats unfermented cakes with the Passover meal on Nisan14, and one eats unfermented cakes for 7 days after from Nisan15 to Nisan21].
4 And no sourdough should be seen with you in all your territory 7 days [of the festival of cakes from Nisan15 to Nisan21], neither should any of the flesh, which you will sacrifice in the evening on the first day, stay all night until the morning [not of the festival of unfermented cakes but of the eating of unfermented cakes].
5 You will not be allowed to sacrifice the Passover in any one of your cities that Jehovah your God is giving you.
6 But at the place that Jehovah your God will choose to have his name reside there, you should sacrifice the Passover in the evening as soon as the sun goes down/sets, appointed time/anniversary to come you from Egypt [We know that this was at midnight for that is the hour that Jesus celebrated it].
7 And you must do the cook [not boil as the NWT translates - you cannot boil the Passover lamb!] and the eating in the place that Jehovah your God will choose, and in the morning you must turn around and go to your own tents [on Nisan14].
8 6 days you should eat unfermented cakes [Nisan15-Nisan20]; and on the 7th day [Nisan21] there will be a solemn assembly to Jehovah your God. You must do no work (Deuteronomy 16).
Method of celebration of Passover memorial not of New Passover itself
The First Stage: The Greeting
The presiding priest, who must be a 1NC saint if possible, must humble himself and must expend himself for the brothers and sisters. He must join in the process of welcoming everyone and taking their coats, showing them to their seats etc. He must do the equivalent of washing their feet. He must not delegate this to a minor deity in his presumptuousness. He must follow the example of Jesus. He must love the congregation. All the 1NC saints should 'enter the house' of the congregation that they will celebrate with on Nisan10 in accordance with the regulations of the Passover lamb and following after Palm Sunday when Jesus entered the temple. This means that the 'house' for each lamb must be defined by Nisan10, which means that various congregations and people must agree where they are going to hold the Passover and who will preside by Nisan10. The Passover lamb was Jesus' flesh before his death and is his wife flesh, the bodies of the 1NC saints after his death.
Before the meal starts a recital of the precise events of the Last Supper is read out. A speech describing some aspects of these events is made. It should mention that the sons of the 1AC and the 1NC saints and the 2NC saints should keep doing these things in remembrance of Jesus (and John). There are 4 loaves and 4 cups, just as the Jews have always eaten and drunk. The Jews are still acting as God's unwitting prophets!! (doing inspired things that they do not understand). The first is the ARC (superior to the 3BC) this is eaten and drunk before the meal by all saints. The second is the FRC (superior to the 1BC), and is eaten and drunk before the meal by no water baptised LWs. It is only eaten and drunk by those with faith in God as Abraham had who have not yet become sons of the ICC. The third, is the 1AC, and is eaten and drunk during the meal by all baptised LWs and all others with faith in God as Abraham had. The 4th is the 1NC. This is eaten and drunk after the meal by the 1NC saints only. The apostels were not sealed into the ARC at the last super and so could drink the cup but not east the loaf of the ARC. They were sealed at Pentecost...
5 because John, indeed, baptized with water, but you will be baptized in holy spirit not many days after this (Acts 1).
The celebration goes as follows...
The priest must pray to God, in secret, kneeling down for forgiveness for all his sins immediately before he starts the celebration. He must also pray for the forgiveness of the sins of everyone at his celebration immediately before the celebration.
The priest must say a public blessing standing up at the start of the meeting.
The priest conducting the celebration gives thanks to the relevant parties who are God, the Angelic Master mediator and the human Blessing mediator and the System mediator and the ransomer of the System mediator (the validation sacrifice of the system covenant), and possibly the submediator (if any) and then blesses the particular loaf (or loaves if there are a lot of partakers) and breaks the loaf and hands the pieces directly only to the partakers of the particular covenant himself. The loaf is not passed from one to another. Then he blesses the wine and gives one partaker the cup of wine, and this partaker then passes it to the next partaker. And so on from one to another among themselves until they have all had some wine and until the wine has run out. No non partaking person touches this cup to defile it. The priest himself will follow the cup round, topping it up if necessary. Dear reader, can you see the physiological symbolism here? It is beautiful.
The blood is flowing around the body. First the priest defines the stationary parts of the body with the bread. Then the wine, the blood, the moving element of the body, is passed all around them. The cup can go round a second or a third time if necessary until all the wine is drunk. The bread is the body, human or angelic. The blood is the life, the spirit of the validation sacrifice.
Each cup must have wine poured out into it, since the pouring out of the wine represents the death of the mediator of the covenant - the pouring out of his blood sacrificially. This cannot occur if the cup is not going to be drunk because there is no clean priest for that cup at the festival.
Fleshly cups flow (1AC, FRC, ICC, CRC) flow clockwise around the body/table as does blood for the lower body returning through the inferior vena cava.
Spirit cups (1NC, 2NC, ARC) flow anti-clockwise around the body/table as does blood for the upper body and head returning through the superior vena cava.
All the emblems must be consumed after blessing. The cups must be passed around and around until it is empty. All the blessed bread must be eaten.
Sealing covenant cups are drunk by all baptised into the relevant testing covenant but the loaf is only eaten by those who know they are sealed.
The First Cup (3BC)
Only baptized members of the Lords' Witnesses who are also 1NC Reserve Saints (baptised into the JWs at the right time and of the appropriate age and then baptised into the LWs at the right time) or are also 2NC Kings, can take part in eating the first loaf and drinking from the first cup.
The presiding priest (who must himself be a 1st New Covenant Saint if possible. If not then he must be a 2NC King gives thanks to God for making the ARC with Michael. And thanks and to Jesus, the ransomer, for validating and mediating the 3BC to Adam. And thanks to Adam, his ransomee, for mediating the blessing of the 3BC to the various System mediators.
Then he says a blessing on the first loaf, asking God to bless it so that it represents the everlasting angelic body of Michael, who was Jesus, the validation sacrifice of the 3BC. He breaks it and hands a piece to every LW in the 1NC, saying words to the effect of:
"Take eat, this is Jesus' angelic body, given in ransom of Adam’s associated angelic body in validation of the 3BC, the inferior covenant to the ARC."
The First New Covenant LW brothers and sisters who know they are sealed can eat, everyone else in the testing covenant (the JAC) just passes the loaf (6,000 male 1NC reserve saints and 6,000 female 1NC reserve saints and 2NC Kings but not Lords).
The presiding priest (who must be a 1st New Covenant Saint) blesses the first cup, asking God to bless it, so that it represents the blood of the 3BC, the blood of Jesus who was Michael, the validation sacrifice of the 3BC. And he passes the cup to the first sanctified brother/sister saying words to the effect of:
"Take this and pass it from one to another among yourselves. Drink out of it all you children of God through the first and the second new covenants, born again by holy spirit, through the eternal fatherhood of Jesus by virtue of the angelic ransom covenant. For this is Jesus' angelic blood of the 3BC, the covenant immediately inferior to the ARC, the angelic ransom covenant, resulting from Michael’s death as an everlasting spirit on 33Nisan14. It has been poured out for all God’s spirit begotten children for the forgiveness of their sins forever. This is so that we can serve Jehovah and Jesus and our brothers and sisters in love for ever."
The cup is not touched or passed to anyone who is not a 1st or a 2nd New Covenant King and an LW. The cup is passed around anticlockwise.
All the 1st and 2nd New Covenant Kings and heavenly baptized 2NC Lords pass this single cup around clockwise and drink from it.
The Second Cup (1BC)
No baptised LW can partake of this cup. For to do so is to deny the CRC or can we have both? But all those non LWs with the faith of Abraham in God, can take part in eating the second loaf and in drinking from the second cup.
The presiding priest (who must himself be a 1st New Covenant Saint if possible. If not then he must be a 2NC saint) first gives thanks to God for making the FRC with Melchizedek. And he gives thanks to Melchizedek, the ransomer, for validating and mediating the 1BC to Adam, the ransomee. And he gives thanks to Adam for mediating the blessing of the 1BC to all of its System mediators.
Then he says a blessing on the second loaf, asking God to bless it so that it represents the human body of Jared, the validation sacrifice of the 1BC. Then he breaks it and hands a piece to everyone who is in the 1BC, saying words to the effect of:
"Take eat, this is Jared's human body (who was later known as Melchizedek) given as a ransom for Adam's human body in validation of the 1BC."
All prospective sons of the 1BC who know they are sealed eat. The rest in the testing covenant just pass the loaf around. This is Melchizedek's first human body, the validation sacrifice for the 1BC (Melchizedek who was Jared).
The presiding priest (for this part) then blesses the second cup, asking God to bless it, so that it represents the blood of the 1BC, the blood of Jared who became Melchizedek, the validation sacrifice for the 1BC. And he passes the cup to the first brother/sister saying words to the effect of:
"Take this and pass it from one to another among yourselves. Drink out of it all of you for this is Melchizedek's blood of the First Blessing Covenant, the inferior covenant to the FRC which has been poured out for the many sons of Adam who find the faith of Abraham, for the forgiveness of their sins as far as the righteous decree in their flesh, which gives citizenship of the Kingdom of God on earth."
The cup is then past clockwise around everyone partaking of it.
Then the Hallel Psalms 110 to 114 are recited one verse per person sequentially round the table (the recital being optional but nice).
All who are present, whether they are baptized as Lord’s Witnesses or not, can attend and eat the meal and take part in this item. The lamb is placed in a bowl or large dish.
The priest must give thanks for the mediator of the 1NC, Jesus, for giving his blood to wash his wife in. He must bless the lamb to represent the church body of Christ, the 1NC saints. He must consecrate his own body since he himself will be a 1NC saint.
Everyone starts by eating the lamb and the bitter greens (and unblessed unleavened bread an wine). This lamb - when cooked - represents the teachings of the Christ. Whereas the lamb whilst living represents Jesus' body, either directly or through the 1NC saints, the body by covenant of Christ (his wife to be). This lamb does not have to be kept in a house from the 10th to the 14th of Nisan, because Jesus has already fulfilled this. He rode into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, and entered into the temple (his father's house) to throw out the money-lenders on Monday, Nisan 10th, which had started on the Sunday evening. We do not have to ensure that no bones in it are broken, we do not have to roast its head together with its shanks, we do not have to burn the flesh that is left over in the morning. We do not have to fulfil the conditions of Exodus 12 as regards the lamb because Jesus has already fulfilled them. However if we fail to meet even on of the conditions for the lamb of Exodus 12 we should pray to Jesus to forgive us for that failure on the basis of his sacrifice.
The Jews had to obey Exodus 12 because it was the law of the Passover for them and it was not changed by Jesus at that time. Also it pointed forward to his sacrifice which ended all animal sacrifices. But today the Passover point not forwards prophetically to Jesus but backwards commemoratively to Jesus since he asked us to keep doing this in remembrance of him. So we can call on his sacrifice to forgive failures to obey the precise laws relating to the sheep or goat. In fact we could in theory have a Chinese meal which did not contain either sheep or goat if that was the only option available in the circumstances, and pray for forgiveness on the basis of Jesus' Passover sacrifice. Actually all sins which do not require policing by the church are forgiven on the basis of his 1AC sacrifice which was given once for all time rather than every time one makes a sin. A baptism forgives all past sins. A prayer on the basis of Jesus' 1AC sacrifice forgives daily sins which are not policed by the church, in the same way that a sin offering under Moses would have forgiven.
We should try to meet as many of them as we can but there is no need to be pharisaical about it. In fact the spirit of the Passover is more important than the precise culinary fuliflment of its lamb. Therefore we shall be so bold as to instruct all the overseers presiding over every Passover to make at least one omission as regards the lamb in order that they have to invoke Jesus' Passover sacrifice into the proceedings by praying to him for forgiveness for that error. Because to Christians, it is his sacrifice that matters not our attempts precisely to commemorate it.
So even if you have a whole lamb, head shanks and interior parts, with every bone unbroken and even if you could burn all the flesh left over in the morning and if even you can ensure that no flesh is taken away outside the house in the garbage, then make an error and make the prayer - for that displays the power of Jesus' sacrifice rather than the glory of yours. We do not want to look righteous, because we are unrighteous. We want Jesus to look righteous because he is. We must point out that in general (on all occasions other than the Passover) the counsel of Paul would apply, namely...
KJV What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.
NWT What follows? Shall we commit a sin because we are not under law but under undeserved kindness? Never may that happen!
YLT What then? shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? let it not be!
ED What then? shall we sin, because not we are under law, but under favour? Not let it be.
KIT What therefore? Should we sin because not we are under law but under undeserved kindness? Not may it occur (Romans 6:15)
Having sandals on your feet or a staff in your hand is not literally necessary we think because these have greater meanings for today. By all means if you have the ability then obey as many of the conditions on the lamb as is reasonable for you. As a minimum roast some lamb or some goat and make a prayer to Jesus.
The meal continues…
The Third Cup (1AC, during the meal)
Whomsoever has faith in God (as Abraham had, LWs and non LWs alike) can take this third cup since it is the cup of the 1AC, the covenant of faith. All those who partake of the 1st cup must partake of the 3rd cup and vice-versa.
The presiding priest gives thanks to Jesus for ransoming Abraham and validating the 1AC and to Abraham for main mediating the 1AC.
Then he says a blessing on the third loaf, asking God to bless it so that it represents the human body of Jesus Christ, who died for all, the validation sacrifice of the 1AC. He breaks it and hands a piece to everyone who is has faith enough to partake of it, saying words to the effect of:
"Take eat, this is Jesus' human body given as a ransom for Abraham in validation of the 1AC, so that all those with faith can have a second chance in the Kingdom of God."
All those who wish eat.
The presiding priest (who must have faith that Jesus is God's son) then blesses the third cup, asking God to bless it, so that it represents the blood of the 1AC, the blood of Jesus, the human, the validation sacrifice of the 1AC. And he passes the cup to the first faithful brother/sister saying words to the effect of:
"Take this and pass it from one to another among yourselves. Drink out of it all of you for this is Jesus' human blood of the first Abrahamic covenant which has been poured out for the many for the forgiveness of sins."
The cup is then past around clockwise to everyone with faith, everyone in the 1AC, and they all drink. The cup is not touched or passed to anyone who does not wish to partake of it.
The meal is finished after the loaf of the 1AC has been eaten and after the cup of the 1AC has been drunk.
The Fourth Cup (1NC)
Only Baptized members of the Lords' Witnesses who are also 1NC Kings can take part in eating the 4th loaf and drinking from the 4th cup. 2NC saints do not partake of this cup of the 1NC!
The presiding priest for this part (who must be a 1st New Covenant Saint and male. A 2NC saint cannot bless this cup) gives thanks to John for validating the JAC and to Jacob for mediating the JAC, and to Jesus for mediating the 1NC. He blesses the 4th loaf, asking God to bless it so that it represents the associated angelic body of John the baptist, the validation sacrifice for the JAC. He breaks it and hands a piece only to those who have been baptized in holy spirit into the first new covenant, saying words to the effect of:
"This is John the baptist's associated angelic body which has been given on your behalf as a ransom for Jacob (who was born without an angelic body, but was given John's associated angelic body by ransom, this being the validation of the JAC)."
The 1st New Covenant Saints all eat.
The presiding priest blesses the 4th cup, asking God to bless it, so that it represents the blood of the JAC, which is the blood of the 1NC, its subcovenant, the blood of the associated angel of John the baptist, the validation sacrifice of the JAC. He passes the cup to the 1st New Covenant Saints saying words to the effect of:
"Take this and pass it from one to another among yourselves. This cup is John's angelic blood (representing his angelic life) of the JAC, the Jacobian Angelic Covenant, which is the system covenant immediately superior to the 1NC. The JAC was validated by the death of John’s associated angel but exists by virtue of Jesus' blood of the 3BC (representing Michael's spirit). Both Jesus’ and John’s blood have been poured out on your behalf."
The 1st New Covenant Saints then pass the cup from one to another amongst themselves anti-clockwise and drink from it. Nobody touches this cup or is passed this cup other than the 1st New Covenant Saints. They should form a visible but closed group by themselves for this.
Sing Praises. And recite the Hallel psalms 115 to 118 one verse/psalm per person around the table sequentially (this recital again is optional but nice). Psalm 22 is not a bad idea either.
After the Passover festivities have ended at 1-3am, the rest of the Hebrew day until sunset is an atonement situation following the persecution of the Christ. So no more food, no bubble baths, only water to be drunk etc. Try to stay awake until Sunrise that is the law of the Passover.
The presiding priest must be a male new covenant saint period. If there is only one left in the world, then the whole world has to come and see him to celebrate this covenant. In 2016 the presiding priests will be 1NC saints.
The scriptures say that Paul hands on to us that Jesus:
23 In the night in which he was going to be handed over took a loaf … (1 Corinthians 11).
He hands on a date as well as a celebration. The date was Nisan14, the Passover day. The new covenant was initially celebrated whilst eating the Passover meal and together with the First Abrahamic covenant, which must be celebrated with this meal since the wine and the bread are taken during the meal. So the 1AC is to be celebrated once a year along with the Passover meal. But there is no reason to celebrate the New Covenant on any other occasion. So it should be celebrated together with the 1AC once a year on Nisan 14 in the evening and the Passover meal should be eaten with it. This is what the Lord’s Witnesses will do on 2001 Nisan14, God willing (we did - ed).
All new covenant saints are therefore cordially invited to a celebration, that being precisely as Jesus prescribed, has some chance of pleasing the true God. It is not only King Josiah who knew how to celebrate a Passover properly you know:
21 The king now commanded all the people, saying: Hold a
Passover to Jehovah
your God according to what is written in this book of the covenant.
22 For no Passover like this had been held from the days of the judges that had judged Israel, nor all the days of the kings of Israel and the kings of Judah.
23 But in the 18th year of King Josiah this Passover was held to Jehovah in Jerusalem (2 Kings 23).
Abel offered a lamb on a certain day and God accepted it. From this it is apparent that Cain's offering of some fruits of the ground would not be accepted because it is God who prescribes what he wants offered to him and when he wants it offered. So we deduce that he must have prescribed a lamb for each of the brothers. It is no good bringing him a Van Gough if he has asked for a kid of the goats. And it does no good bringing him a sacrifice on Tuesday when he has stipulated that it should be offered up on a Monday. The whole basis of sacrifice is an acceptance of God's provisions for his offer of mercy, his offer of forgiveness of our sins. Things are no different with the Last supper. We must celebrate it in the way that God has stipulated through Jesus and we must celebrate it on the day which he has prescribed. Since we have no evidence for any day of celebration other than the Passover day, Nisan14, we must celebrate it then and only then.
This one day a year celebration timetable can also be deduced from the symbolic meaning of the Passover Celebration. We must not celebrate this festival every day of the year as they do in St. Paul's Cathedral in London - not that they have any idea what they are doing in their celebration and neither are any of them 1NC saints. A plastic charade of false piety in the case of the church and a misguided flock in the case of the congregation.
3 Speak to the entire assembly of Israel, saying, On
the 10th day of this month they are to take for themselves each one a sheep for
the ancestral house, a sheep to a house.
4 But if the household proves to be too small for the sheep, then he and his neighbour close by must take it into his house according to the number of souls; you should compute each one proportionate to his eating as regards the sheep.
5 The sheep should prove to be sound, a male, a year old, for you. You may pick from the young rams or from the goats.
6 And it must continue under safeguard by you until the 14th day of this month, and the whole congregation of the assembly of Israel must slaughter it between the 2 evenings.
7 And they must take some of the blood and splash it upon the 2 doorposts and the upper part of the doorway belonging to the houses in which they will eat it.
8 'And they must eat the flesh on this night. They should eat it roasted with fire and with unfermented cakes along with bitter greens.
9 Do not eat any of it raw or boiled, cooked in water, but roast with fire, its head together with its shanks and its interior parts.
10 And you must not leave any of it over till morning, but what is left over of it till morning you should burn with fire (Exodus 12).
Here is the symbolism in tabular form:
|Take sheep into house on Nisan10||Entered into the temple, his Father's house, and threw out those selling and buying and overturned the tables of the money changers on 33Nisan 10|
|Sound Male Lamb (or goat)||Sinless Male Lamb of God|
|Continue under safeguard by you until Nisan14||Jesus was arrested on Nisan14|
|Whole congregation of Israel must slaughter it between the two evenings, these being the Thursday and the Friday evening in the case of Jesus on 33Nisan14||Passover itself was eaten at midnight on Thursday night
and Jesus was killed on Friday afternoon before the next sundown. So both the
physical and the spiritual lamb were killed between the two
At that all the people said in answer: His blood come upon us and upon our children (Matthew 27:25). This also occurred between the two sundowns defining Nisan14.
|Eat the flesh on this night.||The disciples ate both the flesh of the physical Passover lamb (from the bowl) representing the teachings of Jesus, and they ate the body of Jesus, via the bread, on Thursday night.|
Now once the 1NC was made, that night, Jesus flesh became that of his wife. So the roast lamb then became the teachings of the 1NC saints themselves. The left over lamb in the morning was burnt. This is those left over in the morning of 2008Nisan14 going to Gehenna.
Bitter greens are new guys coming in as a result of disasters.
So the Passover in 1513 was the beginning of the Law and the Passover in 33 was the end of the Law. So the Passover was the beginning and end of the Law. But Jesus was the Passover angel in 1513 and he was the Passover lamb in 33. So we read in Revelation:
17 I am the first and the last (Revelation 1).
For the Word Symbolic Meaning of the accounts of the Lord's evening meal - see .
13 My house will be called a house of prayer, but you are making it a cave of
robbers (Matthew 21).
Said on Psalm Sunday (Nisan9) or possibly later.
17 My house will be called a house of prayer for all the nations. But you
have made it a cave of robbers (Mark 11).
Said on Monday Nisan10
We assume that Jesus only said this once, and that Matthew is giving a general account of all of Jesus' activities in the temple both on Nisan9 and on Nisan10. Whereas Mark is specifically describing what he did on Nisan10.
The is not the Superbowl it is the Supperbowl! But it is no less significant. So what was in this bowl?
Water, Wine, Lamb, Unfermented Cakes, Bitter Greens ??
Was it a finger bowl like in a Chinese Restaurant? Was it a bread basket like in a French Restaurant?
21 While they were eating, he said: Truly I say to
you, One of you will betray me.
22 Being very much grieved at this, they commenced each and every one to say to him: Lord, it is not I, is it?
23 In reply he said: He that dips his hand with me in the bowl is the one that will betray me (Mathew 26).
18 And as they were reclining at the table and
eating, Jesus said: Truly I say to you, One of you, who is eating with me, will
19 They started to be grieved and to say to him one by one: It is not I, is it?
20 He said to them: It is one of the 12, who is dipping with me into the common bowl (Mark 14).
So the bowl had to do with eating, so it contained either lamb, unfermented cakes or bitter greens. In both Matthew and Mark, Jesus broke the bread and blessed it after the above conversation. The Greek word translated bowl is: trubliw which means either bowl or dish. The scripture does not say that Jesus took a loaf from the bowl, so it looks like the bowl contained the main food which was lamb. One can prove this by considering the symbolic meaning of Judas dipping his hand in the bowl with Jesus. What were Judas and Jesus fellow workers in? What did their two hands together accomplish? Well it was the betrayal of Judas and the death of Jesus that ended the law, i.e. ended the first Passover. So the bowl contained the first lamb, the Passover lamb, which the pair of them were going to bring to an end.
Here is God's requirement for the constant feature sacrifice:
3 And you must say to them: This is the offering made by fire
that you will present to Jehovah: two sound year-old male lambs a day as a burnt offering
4 The one male lamb you will render up in the morning, and the other male lamb you will render up between the two evenings (Numbers 28).
So all of you Christian believers in the one sacrifice of Jesus Christ, let us ask you the obvious question. Why were there two lambs offered up every single day of the Law by the Aaronic priesthood?
Why was one offered up in the morning in broad daylight and the other offered up between the two evenings ?
Why was the second sacrifice stipulated in such an ambiguous way?
Between the two evenings could in fact be the morning! We have already seen from the requirement that both the actual Passover lamb and Jesus the spiritual Passover lamb were to be offered up on the same day, and these two evenings are simply evenings, as in the case of Genesis 1. The theory that one evening is the sun starting to decline and the other is sundown and the theory that one evening is when the sun goes down and the other is when it becomes dark are false because they both result in Jesus not dying between the two evenings. Obviously one lamb was offered up in the morning, i.e. at the start of the working day and the other in the evening, i.e. at the end of the working day, after evening had fallen. In other words, since the Hebrew day started in the evening, the evening lamb was offered up first after sundown, and the morning lamb was offered up second after sunrise.
7 And Aaron must make perfumed incense smoke upon it.
Morning by morning, when he dresses the lamps, he will make it smoke.
8 And when Aaron lights up the lamps between the two evenings, he will make it smoke. It is an incense constantly before Jehovah during your generations (Exodus 30).
There is only one evening and only one morning in every day, as we can see from Genesis 1 and from the incense offering rules above. For incense was to be offered every morning and this time is said to be between the two evenings.
Well, the answer to our first question is: It was because there were to be two greater constant feature sacrifices. One of Jesus, between the two evenings, but in daylight and in public. And another of John the baptist, he had his head chopped off in private and at night.
So one sacrifice was visible and one was hidden. The symbolism is as follows:
|Day of the morning and the first evening||3.5 year ministry of Jesus|
|Evening comes before morning in Hebrew day||John died before Jesus.|
|Two evenings||Two evening meals, two new covenants|
|First evening||New covenant|
|Second evening||Second New covenant made on a second Day|
One result of this is that John must have died on or before the mid-point of Jesus' ministry, in order that his death occurs 'at night' during the 'day' of the ministry.
23 Therefore it was necessary that the typical representations of the things in the heavens should be cleansed by these means, but the heavenly things themselves with sacrifices that are better than such sacrifices (Hebrews 9).
The heavenly things (angels) are cleansed with sacrifices, plural.
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
17 Because there is one loaf, we, although many, are one body, for we are all partaking of that one loaf (1 Corinthians 10).
These words of Paul make it plain that the first century Christians knew only of one cup and one loaf. These were the 4th cup and the 4th loaf, of the new covenant. 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. 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, the first Abrahamic Covenant, the covenant for all with faith who do
not necessarily find the true religion] 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 the entire salvation plan, of which Jesus is the root.] until that day when I [through the remnant, my wife, my flesh, my mouth] drink it new with you [plural] 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 144,000].
25 Truly I say to you, I shall by no means drink anymore of the product of the vine [The cup of the ARC, the angelic ransom covenant of Michael for Adam's associated angel, 'the' product of the vine, which is the entire salvation plan with Jesus as root.] 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 cups and 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 or actually fulfilled in the sense that Jesus is married] in the kingdom of God [see 1 Corinthians 11:26].
17 And, accepting a cup [the 1st cup of the FRC, the faith ransom covenant, the master covenant for those with faith, who are ransomed actually by Melchizedek], 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 [The cup of the ARC, 'the' product of the vine, which is the entire salvation plan with Jesus as root.] 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'. Every salvation covenant depends upon his sacrifice and lead into the ARC, which has him as its root - symbolically:
1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the
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 branch of the CRC and Melchizedek is the branch of the FRC. All 3 Cherubs, all 3 master covenanters are branches, and the branches of these 3 vines are shown on our covenant chart of the 24 salvation covenants between God and man - see covenant chart.
So Jesus drinks the cup of the 1AC again with 'you' in the Kingdom of his father.
But Jesus does not drink the cup of the ARC until the Kingdom of God arrives.
He does not eat the whole meal until it is celebrated fully in the Kingdom of God.
But nowhere do the scriptures say that Jesus would not eat any loaf until the Kingdom of God or of his father arrived.
So how do we put this jigsaw together?
Well the second half of the second presence was carried by Laodicea, which is a hidden LW church within the Watchtower who stole the LW water baptism on 2002Elul16. They must have been attempting to celebrate the Passover correctly.
The second half of the second presence lasted from 2006Iyyar10 to 2011Tammuz10 - we think - see I45. So there were Passovers on 2006Iyyar14 and 2007Nisan14/Iyyar14 and 2008Nisan14/Iyyar14 and 2009Nisan14/Iyyar14 and 2010Nisan14/Iyyar14 wherein the cup of the 1AC would have been drunk with the meal, since the Angel of Loadicea (AOL) spies on this website. The ARC cup would not have been successfully drunk since they would not know who was and who was not a saint.
So Matthew 26:29, the day when I drink it [the 1AC cup] new with you in the kingdom of my father was fulfilled then. The father was Jacob, the kingdom was of the sons of the JAC over the sons of the ICC after the end of the Gentile Times.
The first Davidic JAC king after the Gentile Times was Charles Russell.
Jesus in the form of 1NC saints is yet to drink the cup of the FRC or the cup of the ARC. These things will certainly occur at the 3 New Passovers on 2016Tebbeth14 and 2016Shebat14 and 2016Adar14.
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 cup of the new covenant itself, although it has been 'drunk' since 33Nisan14, has not been drunk by Jesus continuously since then because the new covenant saints only last for 120 years in each presence, and when Jesus is absent he can not drink anything. This is why in the case of the cup of the 1NC we read:
25 He did likewise respecting the cup 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).
'As oft as ye drink it' meaning: When you do actually drink it. Meaning you will not always be drinking it. Meaning I will be absent for several Passovers.
45 From the
6th hour on a darkness fell over all the land, until the 9th hour.
46 About the 9th hour Jesus called out with a loud voice, saying: Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is, My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
47 At hearing this, some of those standing there began to say: This man is calling Elijah.
48 And immediately one of them ran and took a sponge and soaked it with sour wine and put it on a reed and went giving him a drink.
49 But the rest of them said: Let him be! Let us see whether Elijah comes to save him. [[Another man took a spear and pierced his side, and blood and water came out.]]
50 Again Jesus cried out with a loud voice, and yielded up [his] spirit (Matthew 27).
24 And they
impaled him and distributed his outer garments by casting the lot over them as
to who takes what.
25 It was, in fact, the 3rd hour, and they impaled him.
26 And the inscription of the charge against him was written above, The King of the Jews.
27 Moreover, they impaled 2 robbers with him, one on his right and one on his left (Mark 15).
33 When it
became the 6th hour a darkness fell over the whole land until the 9th hour.
34 And at the 9th hour Jesus called out with a loud voice: Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? which means, when translated: My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
35 And some of those standing near, on hearing it, began to say: See! He is calling Elijah.
36 But a certain one ran, soaked a sponge with sour wine, put it on a reed, and began giving him a drink, saying: Let [him] be! Let us see whether Elijah comes to take him down.
37 But Jesus let out a loud cry and expired (Mark 15).
44 Well, by
now it was about the 6th hour, and yet a darkness fell over all the earth until
the 9th hour,
45 because the sunlight failed; then the curtain of the sanctuary was rent down the middle.
46 And Jesus called with a loud voice and said: Father, into your hands I entrust my spirit. When he had said this, he expired (Luke 23)
Pilate, after hearing these words, brought Jesus outside, and he sat down on a
judgment seat in a place called The Stone Pavement, but, in Hebrew, Gabbatha.
14 Now it was preparation of the Passover; it was about the 6th hour. And he said to the Jews: See! Your king!
15 However, they shouted: Take [him] away! Take [him] away! Impale him! Pilate said to them: Shall I impale your king? The chief priests answered: We have no king but Caesar.
16 At that time, therefore, he handed him over to them to be impaled. Then they took charge of Jesus.
17 And, bearing the torture stake for himself, he went out to the so-called Skull Place, which is called Golgotha in Hebrew (John 19)
Jesus' day involved a handing over to Pilate by Caiaphas, then a defence in front of Pilate, then a defence in front of Herod, then a further defence in front of Pilate, then an agreement by Pilate for an impalement. The final agreement by Pilate for an impalement was at the 6th hour, but the handing over by Caiaphas to Pilate for impalement was at the 3rd hour of Mark (we presume). Jesus drank the sour wine at the 9th hour. So what is the greater day that these hours divide up? Is it is a day of impalement?
|The Reed||The Rulership of FDS4|

Lets us consider the cup of the 1NC. The blood flows around the body and Jesus is the head of the body so one could deduce from that that he should drink that cup. We should here remind ourselves what happens at a traditional Hebrew wedding...
1 A covenant is made between the father of the bride and the groom
2. A price is agreed and paid by the groom or the groom’s father if the groom is under age
3. Wine is drunk by both parties to seal the union
4. Gifts are given to the bride in advance of the arrival of the groom
5 The groom leaves his father’s house with his best man to fetch his bride and bring her home at an unannounced time shouting to warn of their approach
6. The bride gets her bridesmaids ready and the groom waits outside the bride's house
7. The bride and groom walk together back to the Bridal Chamber in the groom's house where they consummate the marriage whilst the best man and the chief bridesmaid wait outside that chamber (this is actually God's marriage ceremony!)
8. When the couple come out after the consummation then they are married and the 7 day feast begins for the guests, whilst the couple go back into the chamber.
9. After 7 whole days of installation of her genetic priesthood the bride comes out of the chamber and the veil is taken off so that all can see who she is.
So the groom, the mediator of the covenant would drink the cup too. So Jesus did drink the 1NC cup and Gordon does drink the 2NC cup. However one should not drink a covenant which one is not a party to. so Jesus would not have drunk the 1AC cup since he was never in that covenant although he was the validation sacrifice for the 1AC. Hence we read in Matthew26:29 referring to the 1AC...
29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new/fresh/for
the first time with you in my Father's kingdom. (Matthew 26 KJV)
29 But I tell you, I will by no means drink henceforth any of this product of the vine until that day when I drink it new/fresh/for the first time with you in the kingdom of my Father. (Matthew 26 NWT)
29 But I say to you, I will not at all drink of this fruit of the vine after this until that day when I drink it new/fresh/for the first time with you in the kingdom of My Father. (Matthew 26 GLT)
29 and I say to you, that I may not drink henceforth on this produce of the vine, till that day when I may drink it with you new/fresh/for the first time in the reign of my Father.' (Matthew 26 YLT)
29 I am saying but to you, not not I should drink from right now out of this the product of the vine until the day that whenever it I may be drinking with you new/fresh/for the first time in the kingdom of the Father of me. (Matthew 26 KIT)

He did not drink the cup henceforth, from the time of his blessing the cup until the Kingdom. So he did not drink the cup of the 1AC on that night. But he did drink the ARC, being the master the mediator of that covenant. However, as regards the FRC (which Jesus was no party to) we read...
25 Truly I say to you, I shall by no means drink anymore of the product of the vine ['the blood' of a sealing covenant. This refers to the cup of the FRC and is true of the cup of the ARC] until that day when I drink it new/fresh/for the first time [Liddell and Scott] in the kingdom of God [not said to be with you]
So again he did not drink the FRC.
18 Correspondingly, John came neither eating nor drinking, yet people say, 'He has a demon';
19 the Son of man did come eating and drinking, still people say, 'Look! A man gluttonous and given to drinking wine, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.' All the same, wisdom is proved righteous by its works. (Matthew 11 NWT)
38 But Jesus said to them: You do not know what you are asking for. Are you able to drink the cup which I am drinking, or to be baptized with the baptism with which I am being baptized?
39 They said to him: We are able. At that Jesus said to them: The cup I am drinking you will drink, and with the baptism with which I am being baptized you will be baptized. (Mark 10 NWT)
So he certainly drank wine and drank a cup at the Passover. But which one or ones? Well he drank the 1NC and the ARC but not the 1AC or the FRC.
The Passover instructions in Exodus 12 were for the actual Passover in Egypt. They were not for the Passover festival of the Law of Moses which commemorated that day. So when Jesus ended the Law, he also ended the Passover festival of the Law. But Jesus himself celebrated the Passover on the Hebrew day of his death and whilst celebrating it, he modified it to become the Lord's Evening Meal. So the Jews have no obligation to do anything different from the Gentiles on Nisan14. The sons of Abraham celebrated the Passover before Moses came along. It was the custom of Canaanite sheep and goat herders to sacrifice a lamb or a goat before leaving the winter pastures and going to the spring pastures - see www.angelfire.com.
Since Abel sacrificed two firstling of the flock, even their fatty pieces, in the days of the AFC (Abelian Faith Covenant) and the ARC (Angelic Ransom covenant). Abel was recognizing two salvation covenant provisions, through two validation sacrifices. He presumably held this sacrifice on Nisan14, and from him the customs of the Canaanites descended we imagine. Jesus changed the water of the Law cup and the CRC cup into the wine, the spirit, of the 1NC cup and the ARC cup in the Passover celebration.
Here is the relevant scripture:
26 And Terah lived on for 70 years, after which he became
father to Abram, Nahor and Haran.
27 And this is the history of Terah.
Terah became father to Abram, Nahor and Haran; and Haran became father to Lot.
28 Later Haran died while in company with Terah his father in the land of his birth, in Ur of the Chaldeans.
29 And Abram and Nahor proceeded to take wives for themselves. The name of Abram's wife was Sarai, while the name of Nahor's wife was Milcah, the daughter of Haran, the father of Milcah and father of Iscah.
30 But Sarai continued to be barren; she had no child
31 After that Terah took Abram his son and Lot, the son of Haran, his grandson, and Sarai his daughter-in-law, the wife of Abram his son, and they went with him out of Ur of the Chaldeans to go to the land of Canaan. In time they came to Haran and took up dwelling there.
32 And the days of Terah came to be 205 years. Then Terah died in Haran (Genesis 11:26-32).
20 Now it came about after these things that the report got through to Abraham: Here Milcah herself has also borne sons to Nahor your brother (Genesis 22).
15 Well, it came about that before he had finished
speaking, why, here coming out was Rebekah, who had been born to Bethuel the son of
Milcah the wife of Nahor, Abraham's brother, and her water jar was upon her
shoulder (Genesis 24).
29 Now Rebekah had a brother and his name was Laban. So Laban went running to the man who was outside at the fountain (Genesis 24).
50 Then Laban and Bethuel answered and said:
From Jehovah this thing has issued. We are unable to speak bad or good to you.
51 Here is Rebekah before you. Take her and go, and let her become a wife to the son of your master, just as Jehovah has spoken (Genesis 24).
So let me get this right... Haran died in Ur, Terah died in Haran and Nahor married Milcah who was the daughter of wait for it... Haran (a different Haran). Decode this is you can!
So Abraham had two brothers both of whom were married before he was. Abraham was 75 when Terah was 205, so the first born was 135 when Abraham was 75. Abram's name was changed to Abraham by God in Genesis 17.
1. Haran died first in Ur and had children in Ur
2. Terah died in Haran
3. Abraham had children in Canaan
4. Nahor had children in 'The City of Nahor in Mesopotamia (near Haran which was also in Mesopotamia). His son Bethuel had a daughter Rebekah who married Abraham's son Isaac, and Rebekah's brother Laban had two daughters Leah and Rachel whom Isaac's son Jacob later married.
Given that Abraham's son married Nahor's granddaughter it seems that Nahor had children before Abraham.
Now we are in a position to do with Abraham's brothers and their wives what Paul did with Abraham and his wives, Hagar and Sarah in Galatians 4. Paul identified Hagar as the law covenant and Sarah as the New covenant, both of which were sub covenants of the 1AC. Now we can identify Haran as symbolising the mediator of first covenant between God and man after Adam's sin, which covenant is symbolised by Haran's wife, and Nahor as symbolising the mediator of the second such covenant which is symbolised by Milcah, Nahor's wife.
Now since the cities of Haran and Nahor were in Mespotamia, and Ur was in Chaldea where civilisation began and Canaan was the other side of the Euphrates, we deduce the Ur stands for the pre-flood system, the city of Nahor stands for the post flood system before the Abrahamic covenant (Mesopotamia means, between the two rivers of the Tigris (which here stands for the flood and the Euphrates), and having children represents the respective covenant coming into force.
So we have found a pre-flood and a post flood covenant, two predecessors of the 1AC. Now of course a non adamic human had to die to validate both of these covenants, in order that the beneficiaries can be resurrected in non ageing bodies in the Kingdom of God. Who were these two validation sacrifices and who were the two mediators? See the covenant chart.
Now just as Jesus, who main covenant ransomed Abraham, was the host for Michael, one would expect that the other two main covenant ransomers were hosts for Gabriel and Melchizedek in the other two systems.
At this point again the reader may well be thinking either: Wow, now I really understand this last supper, what an incredible advance in Christian understanding this is. Or they might be thinking again: Wow, these guys really know what they are doing, God has surely blessed them. Or they might be thinking again: What on earth have all the established churches been playing at for the last 2,000 years? And Hopefully all these thoughts are well founded. But look this is not the whole deal! We have only looked so far at the literal meaning (for the most part). For some of the symbolic meaning - see .
33 Oh the depth of God's riches and wisdom and knowledge! How unsearchable his judgments [are] and past tracing out his ways [are]! (Romans 11).
18 And Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and
wine, and he was priest of the Most High God.
19 Then he blessed him and said: Blessed be Abram of the Most High God, Producer of heaven and earth;
20 And blessed be the Most High God, Who has delivered your oppressors into your hand!
At that Abram gave him a tenth of everything (Genesis 14).
Abraham gave Melchizedek a 10th of all things because the 2AC gives a 10th of mankind to the King of the Kingdom of God, the King of Peace, Melchizedek. The Bread and Wine were for the 1AC, the FRC, because the 2AC was not promised until Genesis 18. Melchizedek is said to have blessed Abraham and God and really everything except the bread and wine. But since he brought them out and since he was the priest, he would have blessed them too. The two of them celebrated the 1AC with all those present. This would have been done on Nisan14, for as we shall see in U15 Jesus celebrated the 1AC at the last supper. Abraham could take these emblems even though Jesus had not died yet, since the apostles also ate this bread and drank this wine before he died at the last supper and in theory at least he might have failed the test.
Michael has permanently lost his angelic body. He has now got a divine body like God's instead. John the Baptist has lost his associated angelic body, so he can only be resurrected as a human until the Master ransom of the ARC is applied. After the ARC ransom has been applied, John can have his associated angel back and become an angel.
Likewise Methuselah can never be a human again. But he has already had 969 years of being a human, so he is probably looking forward to being an angel if he is not one already. Jesus the non adamic human cannot be a human again until the FRC master ransom is applied. So he must exist as an angel until then.
Since Moses, the Jews have drunk 4 cups at the Passover - see wikipedia "Passover Seder". These cups are called, in order of drinking...
1: Kiddush - I will bring out (hotzeiti) - Delivery from Egypt [Jewish
Passover] - FRC [Christianized Last
Supper - Bring out of of this world into the Kingdom]
2: Magid - I will deliver (hitzalti) - Delivery from Babylon [Jewish Passover] - 1AC [Christianized Last Supper - Deliver from false religion through the conscience]
3: Birkit Hamazon - I will redeem (ga'alti) - Delivery from death [Jewish Passover] ARC [Christianized Last Supper - Deliver from death into everlasting life]
4: Hallel - I will take (lakahti) - Delivery from the Law [Jewish Passover] - 1NC [Christianized Last Supper - Deliver from the law]
The FRC is the covenant by which people are brought out of this system and into the kingdom of God. The ARC is the covenant by which they are delivered from death eternally. The 1AC is the covenant by which they are brought out of Babylon because the sons of the 1AC are God's people. The 1NC is the covenant by which people are taken as a wife for Jesus. The 4 cups come from the 4 expressions of deliverance in Exodus 6:6-7 which says...
6 Therefore say to the sons of Israel, 'I am Jehovah, and I shall certainly bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians
[Delivery from Egypt] and deliver you from their slavery
[Delivery from Babylon] and I shall indeed reclaim/redeem you
[Delivery from death]
with an outstretched arm and with great judgments.
7 And I shall certainly take you to me as a people, and I shall indeed prove to be God to you; and you will certainly know that I am Jehovah your God who is bringing you out from under the burdens of Egypt [Delivery from the Law].
8 And I shall certainly bring you into the land that I raised my hand in oath to give to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; and I shall indeed give it to you as something to possess [Physical Promised Land of Israel]. I am Jehovah.'
But actually there is a 5th expression of deliverance in verse 8 which caused Jewish Rabbis to propose a 5th cup, the cup of Elijah. They pour it out hoping for his return which precedes that of the Messiah and their final deliverance.
5: Elijah - I will bring into (hebeiti) [the Physical Promised Land of Israel] - 4EC [the Kingdom of God on earth - Zoar]
Well at the New Passover, celebrated at true midnight on 2016Tebbeth14 and 2016Shebat14 and 2016Adar14, we actually have this very cup that is not drunk but utilized. It is the cup of the 4EC, the water baptism covenant of the last Elijah. The blood of this cup, which is the water in the foot washing bowl, is spattered on the left and right doorposts and the lintel above the doorway in the houses of celebration.
There are 3 loaves eaten, but one of them is split into two parts. This one is the body of Jesus. His everlasting angelic soul is the validation sacrifice for the ARC and his human soul was the validation sacrifice for the 1AC. So one loaf being split into two is the perfect symbolism for these two covenants being validated by the death of one person with two souls. The larger of the two pieces, which represents his angelic soul, is hidden by the Passover priest and then the children search for it. Whereas Jesus said...
17 Truly I say to you, Whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a young child will by no means get into it (Luke18).
The Jews were already drinking 4 cups and eating 4 loaves, (one of of the 3 Passover loaves is split in two). So they were celebrating the 1AC and the FRC unwittingly through the 1st and 3rd cups and loaves. But the 2nd cup and 4th cups and loaves were prophetic for the Jews, they did not represent a covenant during the period before Jesus' death. The law of Moses for example did not require the drinking of a cup of wine of the eating of a loaf, it was a covenant of works.
Jesus converted the 2nd and the 4th cup from merely having a prophetic significance to having a real covenant symbolism. The second cup became the ARC and the 4th became the 1NC. Covenants must be celebrated upon the day that they are made with the relevant mediator. So the ARC should always be celebrated on Nisan14.
We will arrange a low or zero alcoholic wine and rye bread option. The 'healthy sacraments'. Grape juice is not fermented so non alcoholic wine or very low alcohol wine would be better presumably. Everyone must partake in groups of at least two, so if only one person needs to choose the healthy option then another person must join him and basically partake twice once of the normal sacraments and once of the healthy sacraments.
4 And it must occur in that day [that] the
prophets will become ashamed, each one of his vision when he prophesies; and
they will not wear an official garment of hair [John
the baptist and Ezekiel 5] for the purpose of deceiving [falsely
representing that they are the exclusive channel for bible interpretation. They
teach other churches understandings whilst saying that only they can get new
5 And he will certainly say, 'I am no prophet. I am a man cultivating [the] soil, because an earthling man himself acquired me from my youth on [The prophet who should have been a slave of God, was purchased by a man, in idolatry. These are the prophets of Baal].'
6 And one must say to him, 'What are these wounds [on your person] between your hands?' [the second impalement of the Christ, they were stopped from operating in the Watchtower by people who were not 1NC saints] And he will have to say, 'Those with which I was struck in the house of my intense lovers [a striking in the Watchtower, a house of idolatry of leaders, by power junkies who are not saints].'
7 Oh sword, awake against my shepherd [GNS2], even against the able-bodied man [1NC reserves] who is my close-one [unclean suspended fiancee], is the utterance of Jehovah of armies. Strike the shepherd, and let those of the flock be scattered; and I shall certainly turn my hand back [5x] upon those who are insignificant [God turns back to help the lesser ones in the Watchtower].
8 And it must occur in all the land [The JW], is the utterance of Jehovah, [that] 2 parts in it are what will be cut off [and] expire [1/3 is cut off from the true church but does not expire, they are raptured with the faithful, and 1/3 expire and go to Gehenna - See Ezekiel 5]; and as for the 3rd [part], it will be left remaining in it [1/3 remain loyal to God and keep in his land, not the Watchtower land, by joining the LWs].
9 And I shall certainly bring the 3rd [part] through the fire; and I shall actually refine them as in the refining of silver [2NC baptism test], and examine them as in the examining of gold [1NC baptism test]. It, for its part, will call upon my name, and I, for my part, will answer it. I will say, 'It is my people,' and it, in its turn, will say, 'Jehovah is my God' (Zechariah 13).
