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.
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!
Whenever we are too busy thinking about ourselves and what we can get from Christ Jesus, we NEVER will be truly moved by our knowledge and understanding of the pain and suffering that were ahead for Christ Jesus, nor will we be moved by the sorrow our Lord demonstrated for the pain and suffering that were ahead for those who loved and followed Him. For these reasons, our “fake” compassion NEVER will measure up to our Lord’s compassion!
