Come Out Of Man-Made Teachings

If the studies help you, please consider supporting the ministry. Click here for more info.

I created a new study called The True Gospel Story Decoded, which shows how Messiah is fulfilling His Father’s seven Holy Feast Days to redeem the set-apart saints. Here’s a link to the PDF of the study.

Messiah proclaimed that even the very elect could be deceived.

For false messiahs and false prophets shall arise, and they shall show great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the chosen ones” Matthew 24:24

Here are Messiah’s sobering words to people who thought that they were His:

Many shall say to Me in that day, ‘Master, Master, have we not prophesied in Your Name, and cast out demons in Your Name, and done many mighty works in Your Name?’   “And then I shall declare to them, ‘I never knew you, depart from Me, you who work lawlessness!’ Matthew 7:22-23

The enemy has caused Christians to assign the falling away of 2 Thessalonians 2 to the end times, but the apostasy that the Apostle Paul was referring to was fulfilled in the 4th century, and it still affects Christians today.

There is no sugar-coating to this message.  It is a direct message to the end times church, because there’s not much time left, for darkness is on the horizon.

I pray that you will take the message seriously, and pray to the Spirit for discernment, for the end is near, and we all need to make sure that we have nothing to do with the teachings of the Babylonian harlot church of Rome.

For Messiah warned His church in Revelation 18:4: Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

The ‘her’ that Messiah is referring to is the harlot Roman Catholic Church, which was clearly described in Revelation 17.

And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

The cardinals and bishops wear scarlet and purple.

The Roman Catholic Church is arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with precious stones, fulfilling Revelation 17:4.

The apostate church is decked with gold, precious stones, and pearls; which we can clearly see in how the Pope and St. Peter’s Basilica are adorned.

The apostate church uses a golden cup in their Eucharist ceremony, that is full of abominations of false god worship.

When the Pope and priests place the round Eucharist wafer (which represents the Babylonian sun god Nimrod) into the monstrance; it is place on a crescent moon (which represents the moon goddess Semiramus). This represents their symbolic sexual union, which creates their ‘christ in the flesh’, the Babylonian Tammuz, who is their reincarnated sun god.

She pretends to be part of the true church, but her practices and symbols show that her worship is based on the Babylonian Mystery Religion; thus the name, Mystery, Babylon the Great.
The Harlot Roman Catholic Church study provides more proof.

You may be thinking that this doesn’t apply to you because you are a Protestant, not a Catholic; but this page will show you that much of what Protestants believe is based on teachings from Rome, not Scripture.

Protestant Churches are the daughters of the harlot, as many of their teachings came from Rome, not Scripture.

Today the Roman Catholic Church, the Orthodox Church and Protestant Churches, express their faith in what is called The Nicene Creed, which means that they are following the teaching of Rome, not Scripture.

At the first council at Nicaea in 325 A.D, Roman Emperor Constantine began to create the Roman religion of ‘Christianity’, based on their pagan worship rituals, that ultimately are based on the Babylonian Mystery religion.

Below is a brief explanation of the changes that Emperor Constantine and the Bishops of Rome made, which oppose the Scriptures.

They serve to steal glory and honor away from the Father, and they cause the followers of the Messiah to be out of covenant with Him.

You will see how today’s Christian churches are still following these changes today, and so they are steeped in the Babylonian religion without knowing it.

Let me set the stage first, so that you can understand why Satan caused Emperor Constantine to create a religion that is contrary to the Scriptures.  Then you will see how this all affects Christians even today.

Satan used the pagan Roman Empire to try to wipe out the Early Church, killing 10 million saints; but Messiah’s church grew even faster.

The Roman Empire was declining as a result of civil wars, financial strain, famine and pestilence; so Satan changed his strategy to seek to destroy Messiah’s saints from within.

Satan caused Roman Emperor Constantine to act as a hero, ending the persecutions against the saints; and then had him create the Roman religion of Christianity, based on the Roman’s worship of the pagan gods.

Constantine then forced the saints to either compromise, apostatize, from their Scriptural beliefs; or be killed; and many fell away from the true faith, to be exalted in Rome.

Constantine created the pagan based holiday of Easter, which is based on the fertility goddess, Ishtar. 

This is why fertility symbols such as rabbits and eggs are part of it. The 40 days of lent symbolized the life of Tammuz the Babylonians sun god, who died at age 40.  He was killed by a wild boar, which is why ham is a traditional food on Easter, to remember Tammuz.

I’m sure that your observance of Easter doesn’t include worship any pagan gods; but the Scriptures warn us:

Do not do so to YHUH your Elohim, for every abomination which YHUH hates they have done to their mighty ones” Deuteronomy 12:31

Scripture proclaims that Messiah died on the Feast of Passover, He was in the grave on the Feast of Unleavened Bread (symbolizing His sinlessness), and He rose again on the Feast of First Fruits.  Those Holy Feast Days are what the saints should be observing, not Easter.

Let’s be clear about something. These are not just Jewish feasts. These are the Father’s Holy Feast Days, which Messiah is still in the process of fulfilling, to redeem His set-apart people.  He is not done, as He has not fulfilled the three fall Feast Days yet, which represent His return for His bride.

Constantine created the pagan based holiday of Christmas, which is based on the birth of the pagan Babylonian sun god Tammuz.

Saturnalia is a pagan holiday that was celebrated on 12/25, way before Messiah was born. Constantine integrated Saturnalia into his new holiday called Christmas, to appease the Romans, and to draw all religions under the authority of Rome.

Constantine created the pagan based holiday of Christmas, which is based on the birth of the pagan Babylonian sun god Tammuz.

12/25 is the absolute worst day of the year to select to celebrate Messiah’s birth. Messiah was conceived on Hanukkah (in early December), as He is the light of the world.  Nine months later He was born on the Feast of Tabernacles, as He came to dwell among us.

The fall Feast Days represent Messiah’s return (Feast of Trumpets), His judgment (Feast of Atonement) and His marriage to His bride (Feast of Tabernacles).

I understand that Christians are not worshiping pagan gods on Christmas, but the bigger point that I would make is about what they are not doing.

They are not observing their Father’s seven Holy Feast Days, which Messiah is fulfilling for their redemption. Every follower of Messiah should know and celebrate these Feast Days, for they give the proper context of His return.

Emperor Constantine wrote “… it appeared an unworthy thing that in the celebration of this most holy feast we should follow the practice of the Jews, who have impiously defiled their hands with enormous sin, and are, therefore, deservedly afflicted with blindness of soul. … Let us then have nothing in common with the detestable Jewish crowd; for we have received from our Saviour a different way.” (Eusebius’ Life of Constantine, Book 3 chapter 18)

In other words, he condemned the Holy Feast Days by saying that they were ‘Jewish.’ What he didn’t say is that the Messiah, from the tribe of Judah, is the one who is fulfilling the Feast Days.

Christians do the same thing today, they delegate them as Jewish feasts, and say that they are to be dismissed.  But that stance is contrary to Scripture.

The Apostle Paul told the Corinthians to keep the feast of Unleavened Bread. “Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us. Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.” 1 Corinthians 5:7-8

Constantine revered Sunday, the ‘Lord’s Day’.

Prior to Constantine’s changes, the first day of the Roman Calendar was Saturday; but he changed it to SUNday as he was a Sun worshiper.

Let me be clear about a misconception.  There was no such thing as Saturday or Sunday during Messiah’s ministry, so Messiah was not crucified on Friday and He did not rise on Sunday; because there was no such thing.

Messiah died on the Holy Feast Day of Passover and He rose on the Feast of First Fruits, as he is the first to rise again.

So the early church did not meet on Sunday, because there was no such thing.  They met on the first day of the Scriptural week, not the Roman calendar week.

The Roman calendar at the time had 8-days per week, and the days were named after the first 8 letters of their alphabet.

It wasn’t until later in the first century, they some Romans started observing a 7-day week, but the first day of that calendar was Saturday, not Sunday.

The point that I’m making is that the enemy has caused Christians to revere Sunday, but there is no Scriptural justification for it being the Lord’s Day.

And there is no Scriptural justification for a Saturday Sabbath either, as there is no way to align the 7th day Sabbath of Scripture with Saturday of the Roman calendar.  And do we really think that Satan would allow that to happen anyway?  Surely not, for he is a great deceiver!

Constantine removed the saints from observing the Sabbath.

The Father instituted the Sabbath observance as an everlasting covenant between Him and His people. Everlasting means that it does not end.

And you, speak to the children of Israel, saying, ‘My Sabbaths you are to guard, by all means, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, to know that I, Yahuah, am setting you apart.” Exodus 31:13

And I also gave them My Sabbaths, to be a sign between them and Me, to know that I am Yahuah who sets them apart.  ‘And set apart My Sabbaths, and they shall be a sign between Me and you, to know that I am Yahuah your Elohim.’ Ezekiel 20:12,20

Every believer who has a covenant relationship with the Father through the Son, is an Israelite.  His everlasting Sabbath covenant has always been with the true Israelites, the one’s who believed by faith.

Satan hates this covenant, so he caused Emperor Constantine to forbid the practice, and forced people to worship on SUNday.

It is for our benefit as much as the Father’s.  It causes us to be still for a day, to escape the influences and stress of this world.  It gets people to spend time reading Scripture, in prayers, with family, with like-minded people, etc.

Most Christians mistakenly believe that Messiah did away with the law.

But the opposite is true. The Mosaic law was for babes, who could only stomach milk.  But Messiah gave His followers meat, He wrote the law on their hearts and minds, and He gave them the Spirit to empower them to fulfill it.

Lest you think that I am saying that we can earn salvation by works, I am not.  What I am saying is that works are the proof of our faith.  If we really believe what we claim to believe, then we will have good works, which prove our faith.  Faith without works is dead, it is no faith at all.

Messiah took keeping the law to the next level:

“Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire” Matthew 5:21-22

Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart” Mat 5:27-28

The written record of our transgressions, which testify against us, which condemn us; was nailed to the cross of Calvary.

And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross” Colossians 2:13

The moral law of the Torah, the commandments to observe the Holy Feast Days and 7th Day Sabbath, were not nailed to the cross and eliminated, as so many people teach.

The ceremonial law was fulfilled by our Messiah, who is fulfilling the Holy Feast Days in exacting detail, so we don’t have to observe the ceremonial part of the law, meaning we don’t have to sacrifice a lamb on Passover anymore.

Following His commands is not a burden, when we love Him.

By this we know that we love the children of Elohim, when we love Elohim and guard His commands. For this is the love for Elohim, that we guard His commands, and His commands are not heavy.” 1 John 5:2-3

Protestant Churches teach false futuristic prophecy explanations.

Satan used the Popes of Rome to kill the saints during the Dark Ages.  When Catholic monk Martin Luther was led to read the Scriptures, he found that the Roman Church was an apostate church, the harlot church of Revelation 17.

And he and all of the Protestant Reformers testified that the Popes of Rome are the Son of Perdition of 2 Thessalonians 2, and the antichrist beast of Revelation 13.

To counter this the Popes empowered the Jesuits of Rome, to counter the Reformation and bring the Protestants back under the authority of Rome.

They did this by force, through the Inquisition, where they tortured and killed the saints who would not renounce their beliefs.

And they did it by creating false Bible prophecy explanations, that assigned the fulfillment of Revelation to the end times, and said that the antichrist is one-man in the end. They did this to deflect blame away from the Popes of Rome.

The saints did not believe their explanations, and their deceptions didn’t take hold under a few hundred years ago.

Sadly, today their futuristic explanations deceive most Christians, as they don’t understand that the office of the papacy, the Popes of Rome, fulfill prophecy as the antichrist, the enemy of Messiah and His church.

The saints should be protesting against the Popes and Jesuits of Rome, as they are the enemy of Messiah and His saints, and they mislead 1.2 Billion Catholics with a false salvation message.

They should be fighting against the enemy of Messiah and His Church, and witnessing to Catholics who have been misled.

The sad part is that most Christians don’t even know who the antichrist of Scripture is, and they have no clue that most of Revelation has been fulfilled during the last 1,900 years.  And that is because they are believing the deceptions which originated from the Jesuits of Rome.

The enemy causes Christians to condemn people who are teaching these truths.

Believers today are so far removed from Scriptural truth, that when someone proclaims any of the Scriptural truths listed above, they are deemed as a heretic!

Sadly, some Hebrew Roots Movement people are legalistic Pharisees; but many of the truths that they share are Scriptural.

Christians have failed in their mission to shine as a light unto this world.  The salt of their witness is rendered worthless.  And I believe that American Christians are about to be judged.

Roman Emperor Constantine was given a vision that proclaimed, “In this sign, conquer!” and conquer he has.  His creation of the Roman religion of Christianity has caused many saints to stumble.

Constantine was given a vision that proclaimed, "In this sign, conquer!"

Christians are a stumbling block to Jews coming to faith in Messiah.

The beliefs of Christians are a big reason why Jews don’t come to faith in Messiah. They know nothing of Easter and Christmas, as they are pagan and not Scriptural.

But the Jews certainly know the Holy Feast Days, because the Father declared them. And when we show them that the Messiah is fulfilling the Holy Feast Days in exact detail, then Jews can see that He is their Messiah.

They can’t comprehend that Messiah would do away with the Torah, the law; as Christians proclaim.

So they reject the pagan concepts that are associated with Christianity, and they remain lost.

Why would a follower of Messiah not want to know about the Father’s seven divine appointments, which Messiah is fulfilling to redeem us?

Why would a follower of Messiah not want to know about the fall Feast Day which represents the harvest and Messiah’s return for His bride?

You may think that your religious beliefs are just fine as they are, but this is what Messiah had to say about the end times church.

Because you say, “I am rich, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked.” Revelation 3:17

In Revelation 3:19-21, Messiah chastises the end-times church, proclaiming that they’re lukewarm, wretched, miserable, naked, poor, and blind. Then He gives us the promise:

As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcomes will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

The word ‘overcomes’ in Greek is nikao. It means to conquer, to overcome, to prevail, to get the victory.

Ever since I began my studies of Revelation, and read that passage, I’ve felt that the name Nikao defined my ministry, for my calling is to teach the fulfillment of prophecy, and to expose the deceptions of the enemy. That is how we conquer the enemy and get the victory!

So when I created a Facebook profile for ministry, I used the name Nikao, because I don’t make Facebook about me. I don’t post selfies, I don’t make posts about my life. I focus on overcoming the enemy, by teaching prophecy fulfillment. When I started posting YouTube videos, I used that name.

It’s the name that I resonate with more than my given name, especially since I don’t have children, so my real name won’t be passed on. But I don’t want to mislead anyone about who I am. I hope that my work brings honor to my father and mother, who blessed me so much by teaching me about our beloved Messiah.

I pray to our Heavenly Father in the power of Messiah’s name that He will give you eye salve to see the truth.

  1. Thank you David. I am blessed finding this website. The topics here are new to me since I am ordinary Christian, though i have grown in the church. After reading the materials (espacially the true name of the Father and His Son) I fell like im different, I do not know how exactly i am going to act inside the Church. For instance in prayer meeting, I will hear many times everybody says inJesus name. But like you, which i love about you, i should not condemn anyone and i am not in place to judge. But personally i am blessed to know the truth.

    • Thank you for your comment William! It was an amazing, and depressing, journey for me to find out that much of what my Baptist and Calvary Chapel pastors taught me is contrary to Scripture. So I can relate!

      I just updated the names study, with proof from Jewish historian Josephus who wrote the History Of The Jews in Greek, and He used Messiah’s Greek name.

      Messiah’s name was written in Hebrew, Latin and Greek; and placed above His head when He was crucified. I would love to see that plaque!!!

      I believe that much has been accomplished for the kingdom in the Greek/English name of Iesous/Jesus. And I have no problem with people using it to preach the Gospel and to praise Him; though I use His Hebrew name myself.

      Sadly, many people who learn the Hebrew name are now condemning the Greek/English name; and I think that’s Satan misleading them, to condemn things that they should not.

      Contact me anytime with questions, I know that there’s a lot of deceptions, and a lot to relearn.

      Keep learning and growing in The Way!

  2. David,

    Great dispensations on the fall of Modern Babylon, and you are correct in pointing out the fact that many Americans, mostly youth are slightly deceived into believing they are completely safe in certain regions of Israel, look at all the armies gathering for battle!

    In fact, does not Isaiah dispensationals clearly point out the Final Exodus as being after the war with Islam and Gog Psalm 83 Confederacy? Timing is important to understand during the 70th and final week of Daniel.

    Perhaps we should write about the music industry collapse and pornography in America, Modern Babylon and the Jezebel spirit behind the workings of false replacement theology teachings of the church and the trap that awaits believers toward the end of days before the Seventh Trumpet.

    – Michael

  3. Consider this when stipulating how we should pronounce the names of God. In the original spoken Hebrew (not necessarily the same as the spoken version resurrected in modern times) we speculate that the Hebrew letter, ‘, is pronounced as a J (jot)when it begins a word, as in Joshua. When it appears inside a word it is a yod pronounced as a Y or I. This could well be true as a rule, since some other Hebrew letters have soft and hard pronunciation rules. I’m told that modern spoken Hebrew has a Yiddish influence and there is no Jay sound in Yiddish. I am not a linguist but it makes sense to me as the AV translators translated the names in question using the hard J sound on the evident assumption that that is how the Greek language rendered them. It is interesting that there is a similar relationship between letters J and I in both Greek and English. The bottom line is that perhaps it’s not wise to be dogmatic about pronunciation.

    • Thank you for sharing your perspective Alex! I’m not sure why you think that this article is ‘dogmatic.’ It simply shares what Hebrew words the names YHUH/YaHUaH and Yahusha are based on. It also shares the Aramaic rendering of their names. It also shares that the early church used the Greek Iesous, which became Jesus. Most Christians are dogmatic.

  4. hidden truth over two thousand years ago chosen disciples preached Jesus fulfilled
    Torah “Chabad” Messianic scriptures of the prophets known as the mystery and testimony of G-d.
    A fact, it was the men who knew G-d (Jewish rulers) who changed the truth of G-d into a lie because they could not stop chosen disciples teaching Torah “Chabad” in the name of Jesus Christ which declares the Messiah comes in the flesh.

    They made written copy of Torah “Chabad”. Then added and took away words of the prophets and then sending false brothers to teach gentiles another Jesus Christ “word” of prophecy known as the “virgin birth” prophecy drawing disciples after them.

    Those disciples were the forefathers of the Roman Catholic “Mother” Church of all churches.
    They were known as “Antichrist believers” who denied Jesus Christ fulfilled the Torah “Chabad” scriptures of the prophets.

    the men who knew G-d who were against chosen disciples also started the great persecutions by persuading gentile rulers and their soldiers to have chosen disciples and most of their followers put to death and confiscate their letters of written testimonies.

    They changed Mary’s conception into a fable, Jesus bloodline to king David, mystery of G-d, book of Revelations, they changed Isaiah 9:5 into Isaiah 9:6 “the creature” making G-d into a man HB KJV Isaiah 9:6 denies the Father and the Son
    Isaiah 9:6 is Revelation 13:16, Here is wisdom. Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a “man”; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
    They added words to cover up the true words of the kingdom. Such words are “church”, “gospel”, “cross”(a cross doesn’t bleed), “Baptist”, “baptism”, “crucify”, “things”, and a great many more!
    over 1500 years ago when the Holy Bible was created they did not transfer the exact words of the prophets from Torah “Chabad” into the “Old Testament” Holy Bible!
    Also the changed chosen disciples words to look and read as if they preached this other Jesus Christ “word” of prophecy which is in the Holy Bible.

    True base foundation of Ephesians 2:20 is from Torah “Chabad” scriptures of the prophets but when this other Jesus Christ “word” of prophecy spread through Holy Bible, the Torah became humbled and this other bible took its place. Causing the enemy to fulfill Isaiah chapter 14,who is also called “engraver of images” in Ezekiel 28:12 Torah “Chabad”. I am telling the truth. Study Torah “Chabad” with Holy Bible. Soon revelation chapter 11 and 12 shall be fulfilled in great city and land of living. then comes ingathering of exiles, then comes outpouring of G-d’s spirit, then comes end of days, then comes final resurrection and redemption. no rapture until all is fulfilled in Torah “Chabad” and book of Revelation. Read Ezekiel chapter 8 and 9. Same as book of Revelation

  5. Christianity was created to stop the true teaching of Jesus Christ from the Torah “Chabad” scriptures of the prophets,

    Jesus made the way to fulfill the Law of Moses through the “spirit of G-d” “Anointing”. The Law of G-d was not put away.
    the power of G-d is when Jesus Christ’s body (human flesh) died on the tree destroying the powers of the devil and putting to death the flesh “evil inclination” and ALL its works. Chosen disciples preached this daily.

    Jews do not convert when believing Jesus Christ is the Messiah according to the Torah “Chabad” scriptures of the prophets. they are granted repentance and forgiveness of sins to continue in the Torah “Chabad” being spiritually circumcised by the “spirit of G-d” (in Jeremiah fulfillment of everlasting covenant) fulfilling the Law of Moses and the prophets
    Gentiles are converted to Judaism who are granted repentance and forgiveness of sins receiving the promise of the fathers and the prophets being spiritually circumcised by the “spirit of G-d” who become a Jew inwardly.
    this is fulfillment of prophecy: of a pure language they call upon the one true living G-d through the King Messiah.
    I am telling the truth.

  6. I am currently learning about all this myself, it has been a path I have asked Elohim to put me on for some time. One thing I must ask is what you meant by the sabbath, I get they didn’t have weeks so we couldn’t say what day… Does that mean set aside 24hrs where ever it fits during a week for sabbath or did you mean something else?

    Thank you

    • Amanda, the Scripture calendar is based around the lunar cycle, so each new month the Sabbaths fall on different days. One month it may be on a Tuesday, the next month on Wednesday, the next month on Friday.

      The enemy has caused people to move away from an agrarian lifestyle where they lived on a farm and could take the Sabbath off, to working M-F jobs, so it makes it difficult to observe the Scriptural Sabbath. If you can’t observe the Scriptural Sabbath right now because of a job, then I would set apart one day of the week to rest in our Father.

      Here’s the study that talks more about the Scriptural calendar.

      I hope that helps! David

      • I to thought at one time that the 7th day Sabbath (Leviticus 23:3) was counted from the New Moon every month. But after careful study I learned different. For example if this method of reckoning the weekly Sabbath is correct then Passover which always occurs on the 14th of the first month( Leviticus 23:5) would always fall on the 2nd weekly Sabbath because the 14th day would be the 2nd 7th day. And this can’t be true because Yahusha (The Messiah’s Hebrew Name) was crucified as the Passover Lamb on Passover day which was a Wednesday that year and the Jews had to ask Pilate (John 19:31) to break the legs of of those crucified to help them die quickly so they could get them buried before evening because the Passover day which is not a Sabbath itself but rather a preparation day before the High Sabbath Festival of Unleavened Bread which occurs the next day on the 15th of the month (Leviticus 23:6) and the bodies were not allowed to remain on the torture stake on the High Sabbath (John 19:31). So Wednesday night to Thursday night is 1- day, Thursday night to Friday night is the 2nd day and Friday night to Saturday night are the three days he was prophesied to be buried in the earth (Matthew 12:40) Now on the first day of the week (Sunday) Mary Magdalene came to the tomb very early while it was still dark (John 20:1) and saw the stone had been rolled away because He had already been resurrected. So there were 2- Sabbaths that week. The Festival of Unleavened Bread Thursday starting the evening before and the weekly Sabbath which is the 7th day of the week. So if counting the weekly Sabbath from the New Moon the 14th day Passover would have been the 2nd 7th day Sabbath and three days later you have another 7th Day Sabbath. So it doesn’t work. The 7th day Sabbath was created by Yahuwah in Genesis 2:3 and has continued ever since and is not reckoned by the New Moon. It has it’s own time line beginning from creation to this day. And if you look on any calendar counting left to right as we do in the English speaking countries the 7th day is called Saturday. However the New Moon is used to reckon the 7 annual Sabbaths. HalleluYah Praise YAH!

        • Chet, the Passover of the lunisolar Sabbath Calendar can never fall on the Sabbath. The 1st day of the month is new moon day. Count 7 days and the 1st Sabbath is on the 8th day. Count 7 days and the 2nd Sabbath is on the 15th day. The Feast of Unleavened Bread falls on the 2nd Sabbath of the month. This is why it’s called a High Sabbath, as it’s a Sabbath day on which a feast day occurs. The same is true in the 7th month, and the Feast of Tabernacles.

          And a day starts when the sun comes up, not when it goes down. Try reading this study again, because you’re misunderstanding the Scriptural calendar.

  7. Christ set us free from all religion. Paul is the only Apostle to the GENTILES. We are in the economy of grace today. Read Eph.3, and Col.2… Trust in Christ alone! Anything else is deception.
    Colossians 3:16 KJV — Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

    May the Lord be gracious to you and show you the truth. Peace.

    • Thanks, Bobby. I’m an ordinary Christian trying to educate myself on the things of God through the Holy Spirit. I was waiting for someone to say this in the comments. Because although I learned a lot from this article, I also felt burdened and back to religion. I went to a deep Roman Catholic School from kindergarten to college. We have been reciting the rosary at least once but up to three times a day in school. Outside of school is different. I said this to let you know how deeply Catholic I was in a predominantly and very Catholic community. I could tell you, that “coming out of her” was definitely how I felt when I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior and observing all that were cited in this article would feel like going back to religion. I’ve been set free. I don’t want to go back to religion.

      • That’s awesome that you were led out of the harlot Catholic Church Niro! As I noted to Bobbi, I don’t teach religion, I teach Scriptural truth.
