Many Christians annually celebrate man-made holidays that are rooted in paganism and based on lies and myths. By doing so, these Christians demonstrate just how unfaithful they are to Yeshua and to YeHoVaH.
I am doing what all saints of Yeshua should do – set the record straight about the Black Friday graphic that has Yeshua on the cross flanked by two criminals. Many versions of this graphic have been posted for years on Facebook, but, sadly, they all have been posted not only to confirm Yeshua died on a Good Friday but also to confirm that that Good Friday was a black Friday. The truth is that Yeshua never died on any Friday – neither good nor black or otherwise.
ALL the Hebrew and Roman religious leaders’ traditions of men that have been added to the Word of God are why so many believers in Christ who will be living right before the Tribulation Period begins will be so unprepared and unalert. They will be the carnal believers and the natural men and women (unbelievers – Jews and Gentiles) who will miss the Rapture and end up suffering during the Tribulation Period.
The uncomfortable truth is that it was Palm Sunday to First Fruits that created a holy week—holy because of the Feasts of Passover, Unleavened Bread (of which the first and seventh days of this second feast are high-day Sabbaths; the first 2 of 7 annual HIGH HOLY DAYS/annual High Sabbaths), and First Fruits (Resurrection Sunday). Most important is the fact that the Feast of First Fruits came after this true holy week’s regular weekly Sabbath ended! These holidays/feasts and Holy Days are God established, as commanded in Leviticus 23!
The burial and resurrection of Christ Jesus are based on Jewish dates and NOT Gregorian calendar days! Then too, Jewish holidays begin at sundown on the dates before they are listed on the Jewish calendar. For example, this means that 14 Nisan begins during the night hours of 13 Nisan, and so forth!
Jesus the Christ did not die on Good Friday! He died right before the beginning of Abib/Nisan 15th; that is, He died on Passover (Abib/Nisan 14th), a few hours before the day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread started. It is because the Lord died on Passover that Christ Jesus is now every born again and saved believer’s symbolic PASSOVER.
