The Easter Connection
This coming Easter weekend will cover three days, Friday, Saturday and
Sunday. I will share my thoughts on each of these three days.
1. Friday. Friday is the day that Jesus was crucified. It is called Good Friday.
On the day of the crucifixion there was a great earthquake that was
significant enough to be recorded as in important event of that day. At
the time of this earthquake the vail in the temple that separated man
from the presents of God was torn from top to bottom. Also during this
day the sun went dark, this was significant enough that the Romans who
were crucifying Jesus declared that He must be the Son of God.
When I had a dream in 2012 about the Northwest earthquake, in my
dream this quake was just like the 1964 Alaska earthquake. Six months
after my dream, scientists went public with the coming NW quaked called
the Cascadia earthquake. They compared it to the 1964 Alaska quake,
saying it would be as large, saying it will also be a subduction zone quake.
22
My last interesting connection was the fact that it happened on Good
Friday. April 19th is Good Friday.
2. Saturday. What I see interesting about Saturday is, it is the same day that
the Passover is celebrated. The Passover is the event that happened in
Egypt when the Jewish slaves were about to leave Egypt in the Exodus.
What I see as an interesting connection is the fact that it was the time
when great judgment was about to fall on Egypt and those who had
prepared escaped this coming judgment.
3. Sunday. Sunday is Resurrection Day; this was the day that Jesus rose from
the dead. This is also the day that the Bible says that many saints of old
also came out of their graves and Jesus and these saints of old were seen
on the earth for 40 days. What is interesting about this is that many
prophets that have been shown the coming Transformation have been
told that this gentile version would be for only a short time. Some
prophets have been told it will be for 40 days, similar to what happened
at the time of Christ’s resurrection when Jesus and the saints of old were
on the earth for 40 days.
Can you imagine how these saints of old had a powerful impact in
launching the church after the Crucifixion of Jesus? I can imagine how
both the Jewish 144,000 and the gentile group would do great exploits
leading the charge for the greatest revival the world has ever seen.
If I am wrong concerning the Easter connection to the kickoff event and the
transformation or if I am wrong on the Kick off events starting in April, I
stand by my position that these events will happen soon in God’s timing.
Everything convinces me that these events are imminent. No matter if my
math and timing are right or wrong, I am convinced that we must take this
information seriously and prepare our hearts for the Lord’s coming.
I am sharing the verse below from Thessalonians because this verse has been
often misinterpreted. Where it says the Lord’s coming is like a thief in the
night. This is said to mean that you won’t see it coming. If you read further
you will see that it is the sleeping church that will not see the Lord’s coming.
This verse goes on further to say that we who are watching are of the light
23
and this day will not catch us by surprise. This verse says that we are to
watch. If it was to be a suddenly without notice there would not be anything
for us to watch for. Are you watching or are you sleeping?
1 Thessalonians 5:2-6, “For you yourselves know perfectly that the Day of the
Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, “Peace and safety.”
Then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant
woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren are not in darkness, so
that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and
sons of the day; we are not of the night, nor of the darkness. Therefore let us
not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober.”

  1. Yes of course He was NOT crucified on Friday at all and that is a church of Rome teaching to go along with the rest of their abominable doctrine and deceptions. If any doubt hear the word of the Lord regarding this .. I AM calling out to those in the catholic religion to come out of her, My People. The “mother of rebellion,” who has the blood of My Precious Saints within her wretched womb. You follow one who comes in his own name. You follow one who dares to make himself equal with ME! The One and Only HOLY FATHER! Does not My Word say not to call anyone “father”, except ME, THE GREATEST OF ALL! The filthiness and wretchedness and pride of the one that you follow! He says that all religions should be united. Does this sound like My Prophetic Word is coming to pass? Does this sound like a “One World Religion,” My Children? Do you think you can follow this poor and naked leader of yours and still be worshipping ME AND MY SON YESHUA! I tell you, you cannot have two masters. The one you follow is the very one mentioned in My Holy Word that he will cause all to worship the beast, and will make an abominable image of obama. He will have My Precious Children put to death, those that have the witness of the BLOOD OF THE LAMB. Come out of her, My People! FATHER calls you out by name, for I created each one of you and I know you. Leave the filthy whore who causes My Children to err grievously against their Holy God! Have nothing to do with the one who only speaks lies, but acts as a lamb and deceives, deters, and decimates My Children. FATHER will show “pope francis” who is MASTER OF ALL, when he is tossed into MY LAKE OF ETERNAL FIRE AND BRIMSTONE! Come out of her My People! The unholy partnership of obama and the pope begins!

  2. John – Wanted To Do A Follow Up On When JESUS Was Crucified!

    To Start With – I LOVE YOUR TEACHING! But We May Have “MISSED” The Mark On This One Just Like Many Teach A “PRE-TRIBULATION RAPTURE” Which Can NOT Be Proven From The BIBLE!

    And, John I KNOW Because We Have Talked Several Times You Are NOT In The “PRE-TRIB” Camp!

    BE BLESSED MY BROTHER!

    WELL HERE GOES!

    THE TWO SABBATHS OF PASSOVER

    Most people believe that Y’SHUA (JESUS) died on Passover and arose on Sunday. However, is this what the Scriptures prove? In order to get the whole picture one must piece together the information given in the gospels, coordinating this picture with the information in the Old Testament describing what was going on during the Passover season.

    We know that Y’SHUA celebrated the Passover in obedience to the commandments to do so given in Leviticus 23, Exodus 12 and Numbers 28:16-25. He began the events leading to His death by celebrating this event for which He instructed His disciples to prepare:

    And the disciples went out, and came to the city, and found it just as He (Y’SHUA) had told them; and they prepared the Passover. Mark 14:16

    After eating the Passover meal (Seder), Y’SHUA went to the Garden of Gethsemane with the disciples to pray. (Matthew 26:36-46; Mark 14:32-42; Luke 22:40-46)

    And they came to a place named Gethsemane; and He said to His disciples, “Sit here until I have prayed.” Mark 14:32

    After praying, Y’SHUA was arrested, tried and on the cross by 9 a.m. the next day.

    And having arrested Him, they led Him away, and brought Him to the house of the high priest… Luke 22:54

    Now when morning had come, all the chief priests and the elders of the people took counsel against Y’SHUA to put Him to death;
    2 and they bound Him, and led Him away, and delivered Him up to Pilate. Matthew 27:1-2

    And it was the third hour when they crucified Him. Mark 15:25

    As most everyone knows, MESSIAH died, was buried and resurrected. The traditional teaching says that Y’SHUA died on Friday, the weekly Sabbath, (good Friday) and arose on the following Sunday. However, Y’SHUA, HIMSELF, said,

    for just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the sea monster, so shall the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. Matthew 12:40

    Is it possible to get three days AND three nights from Friday to Sunday? NO, it is not. Therefore, from MESSIAH’s own words we can see that this teaching cannot be correct. Therefore, exactly what did happen?

    Leviticus 23 gives us the important and “missing” information in the traditional teaching. Because we have not bothered to put the New Testament account into its Old Testament framework, we have misunderstood and misconstrued the events of the Passover season in which Y’SHUA died and was resurrected. Therefore, to understand what happened, let’s look at this missing info.

    5In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at twilight (*when GOD says a new day begins) is YAHWEH’s Passover.
    6 ‘Then on the fifteenth day of the same month there is the Feast of Unleavened Bread to YAHWEH; for seven days you shall eat unleavened bread.
    7 ‘On the first day you shall have a holy convocation; you shall not do any laborious work.
    8 ‘But for seven days you shall present an offering by fire to YAHWEH. On the seventh day is a holy convocation; you shall not do any laborious work.'” Leviticus 23:5-8 (*my commentary)

    This passage tells us that the Passover is on the 14th and the Feast of Unleavened Bread begins the 15th; they are back-to-back. The first day (and the last day) of the Feast of Unleavened Bread is a Sabbath. This is a “special” Sabbath, also called a “high Sabbath”. Therefore, the Sabbath for which Y’SHUA had to be removed from the cross was the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, not the weekly Sabbath. (The weekly Sabbath does play a part in Y’SHUA’s timeline, which we will shortly see.) Unlike the weekly Sabbath that is every Friday night to Saturday night, this special Sabbath can fall on any day of the week.

    Are there New Testament Scriptures that give us this information about this special Sabbath? Yes, there are:

    52…this man (Joseph of Arimathea) went to Pilate and asked for the body of Y’SHUA.
    53 And he took it down and wrapped it in a linen cloth, and laid Him in a tomb cut into the rock, where no one had ever lain.
    54 And it was the preparation day, and the Sabbath was about to begin. Luke 23:52-54

    31 The Jews therefore, because it was the day of preparation, so that the bodies should not remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a high day) John 19:31

    42 Therefore on account of the Jewish day of preparation, because the tomb was nearby, they laid Y’SHUA there. John 19:42

    Passover is not a Sabbath. It is the day of preparation for the High Sabbath that is the first day of the (seven day) Feast of Unleavened Bread.¹ Y’SHUA died on Passover, but was removed from the cross before sunset, which began the High Sabbath, the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

    7 ‘On the first day you shall have a holy convocation; you shall not do any laborious work.

    On a Sabbath no work is done, therefore, the women could NOT prepare Y’SHUA’s body for burial. Y’SHUA was removed from the cross, wrapped in linen and placed in a tomb.

    46 And Joseph bought a linen cloth, took Him down, wrapped Him in the linen cloth, and laid Him in a tomb which had been hewn out in the rock; and he rolled a stone against the entrance of the tomb. Mark 15:46

    Because of the encroaching High Sabbath, the linen wrapping was all that time allowed to be done for Y’SHUA. Under the torah (law) one could not buy or sell on a Sabbath.

    As for the peoples of the land who bring wares or any grain on the Sabbath day to sell, we will not buy from them on the Sabbath or a holy day; Nehemiah 10:31

    Therefore, the women could not obtain the necessary items to properly anoint His body and bury Y’SHUA. However, once the High Sabbath was over, the women could buy what they needed for this task.

    And when the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, bought spices, that they might come and anoint Him. Mark 16:1

    Since there were no food processors or machinery during the first century, this was a time consuming, laborious task. On the day after the High Sabbath, the women purchased the spices and spent the day preparing them to anoint Y’SHUA’s body. However, they were once again delayed, this time by the weekly Sabbath.

    55 Now the women who had come with Him out of Galilee followed after,
    and saw the tomb and how His body was laid.

    56 And they returned and prepared spices and perfumes. And on the Sabbath they rested according to the commandment.

    1 But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they came to the tomb, bringing the spices which they had prepared. Luke 23:55 – 24:1

    Thus far, Y’SHUA has died, been placed in a tomb as the High Sabbath of the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread began. The women were forced to wait for that evening and day to pass. The next morning after the Sabbath when the shops were open, they purchased the spices and prepared them to anoint Y’SHUA’s body. They then had to rest for the weekly Sabbath to pass. Since there were no electric lights to enable them to work at night, they waited until morning on the first day of the week, Sunday, to go to the tomb to prepare His body. When they arrived, the tomb was empty. Does this mean that Y’SHUA arose on that day, or was tomb empty because He had already arisen?

    To make all of these events fit, we can count backwards from the weekly Sabbath and figure out what evening Y’SHUA and the disciples had the Passover meal and what day He was crucified. The timeline of events would look like this:

    Tuesday night – Passover Seder (meal), prayer in Gethsemane, arrested, brought before the Jews

    Wednesday morning – before Pilate, on the cross by 9 a.m., dead by 3 p.m.²

    Wednesday night – Y’SHUA in the tomb – first night, High Sabbath begins

    Thursday – Y’SHUA in the tomb – first day, High Sabbath,

    Thursday night – Y’SHUA in the tomb, second night, end of High Sabbath

    Friday – Y’SHUA in the tomb, second day, spices bought & prepared

    Friday night – Y’SHUA in the tomb, third night, weekly Sabbath begins

    Saturday – Y’SHUA in the tomb third day, weekly Sabbath

    Saturday Night – Y’SHUA NOT IN THE TOMB, End of weekly Sabbath

    In order for Y’SHUA’s words to be fulfilled of three days AND three nights in the earth, He could not have spent a fourth night in the tomb! Therefore, sometime before sunset and the end of Saturday, Y’SHUA arose.

    Would Y’SHUA’s resurrection on Sabbath violate torah (the “law’)? The torah instructs us to do no work on the Sabbath; could Y’SHUA rising from the dead be considered work? What did Y’SHUA say about this?

    If any of you has a sheep and it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will you not take hold of it and lift it out? How much more valuable is a man than a sheep! Therefore it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath. Matthew 12:11-12

    This passage refers to healing on the Sabbath. Rising from the dead to bring eternal life to the world would certainly be a bigger “good” to do on the Sabbath!

    Y’SHUA also told us:

    For the Son of Man is LORD of the Sabbath.” Matthew 12:8
    (also Mark 2:28; Luke 6:5)

    HE is LORD over the Sabbath, not the Sabbath lord over Him! As the Word of GOD (John 1:1-5), He was the author of the Sabbath commandments. Would the author’s writing have more authority than the author, Himself?

    When the women arrived at the first opportunity to see what they had come to do, Y’SHUA had already arisen! He was gone. He did NOT rise on Sunday. He arose on Saturday, as the Lord of the Sabbath.

    5 And the angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid; for I
    know that you are looking for Y’SHUA who has been crucified.

    6 “He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying. Matthew 28:5-6

    (Also Matthew 28:1-6; Mark 16:2-7; Luke 24:1-3)

    The tradition of Y’SHUA dying on “good Friday” and rising from the dead on Sunday has long been the justification of believers changing the seventh day Sabbath GOD instructed His people to keep, to Sunday, as the supposed “day He arose.” The question begs to be asked: where in Scripture does GOD give us permission to change His Sabbath to ANY day other than the day He ordained: the seventh day of the week?

    Each reader will have to decide whether they will hold to the traditions they have been taught, or whether the Word of GOD will be their “bottom line” and ultimate guide. If the later is chosen, then that reader will have a choice to make: will they keep the Sabbath GOD ordained and has never changed³, or will they keep the Sabbath that men created?

    The choice is yours: obey GOD or men.

    FOOTNOTES:

    ¹Scripture can be confusing at times because it calls this season either the Passover Season and because unleavened bread is eaten from Passover throughout the seven day Feast of Unleavened Bread, sometimes Scripture includes Passover into the Feast of Unleavened Bread:

    Now the Feast of Unleavened Bread, which is called the Passover, was approaching. Luke 22:1

    3 Now it was during the days of Unleavened Bread.
    4 And when he had seized him (Stephen), he put him in prison, delivering
    him to four squads of soldiers to guard him, intending after the Passover
    to bring him out before the people. Acts 12:3-4

    ²(Matthew 27:45-46; Mark 15:33-34; Luke 23:44-49)

    ³(If you think it has, find just ONE Scripture to prove it)

    JUST SEARCHING FOR TRUTH!!!

  3. Some teach there were two high holy days that week. So Jesus was crucified earlier to make the Sunday resurrection correct.

  4. Well when Jesus shows up in the sky on his coming; we ALL will be transformed (good and evil) There will be no flesh who can stand on this flesh body before God. This “transformation” privilege is not a privilege really. The word says all tongues and knees will confess and bow before Christ (weather is liked or not). There will be no transformation before Jesus appearing in the sky; it is not scriptural. the 144,000 will be sealed (not transformed to incorruptible bodies by angels) these are simple truths. Don’t let anyone deceive you. we are not leaving the earth. We will go thru persecution (before Christ appears in the sky). Before Christ comes God will protect those who He wills for… (some will be put in Jail “Smyrna” and some will be delivered from the hour of temptation that will come “Philadelphia”.

  5. Hello John, thank you for some excellent points!

    However I do not believe that the end time events will begin with the transformation.

    The Lord has said through Holy Spirit Wind that judgement would begin with a “fiery kick-off event”:

    “Soon THE event will happen and there will no longer be any wonder in any of those who are watching, those who are mine, that My judgment has begun. The whole world will be in confusion and chaos, but My bride will have the peace that passes all earthly understanding. She will not fear and she will be protected from harm. It will happen soon enough do not speculate on the date but be ready at all times.”

    Again through Holy Spirit Wind, in a “Parable About the Kick-Off Event”, the Lord said that the transformation would occur half way through the “final game”:

    “Just before halftime of this final game, team Satan will look undefeatable. They will seemingly score at will and will even take out many of My team members. My team will be extremely worn out but they will overcome, all is not lost! The League Commissioner, My Father, is sending down rulings from above and the team shall have new power breathed into them by coach Ruach ha Kodesh (Holy Spirit) and My team will play like never before and will be transformed and unstoppable. They will even go out and find many, many teammates that had switched teams and they will recruit those who Satan had cast aside. The team will be larger than ever! We begin our great victory feast before the game is even over, at halftime.”

    It makes sense to me that the transformation will occur after a period of refinement and purification. This would appear to be consistent with scripture:

    “10 Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will continue to be wicked.” (Daniel 12:10).

    This would not happen if we were transformed immediately. This is also consistent with the message of many of the prophets that we are about to enter testing times like we have never seen before.

    So I think that this month is too soon for the transformation. But we will have plenty to do until these things take place … and then beyond as we bring in the harvest!

    Time will quickly pass … May our wait for Jesus our groom be like Jacob’s wait for Rachel:

    “20 So Jacob served seven years to get Rachel, but they seemed like only a few days to him because of his love for her.” (Genesis 29:20)

  6. John,
    Love You Bro – However, I Do NOT See How JESUS Could Have Been Crucified On FRIDAY;

    I Know That Is What Is Taught;

    But According To Scripture From Mark 15:42-44
    42. And now when the even was come, because it was the preparation, that is, the day before the sabbath,
    43. Joseph of Arimathaea, an honourable counsellor, which also waited for the kingdom of God, came, and went in boldly unto Pilate, and craved the body of Jesus.
    44. And Pilate marvelled if he were already dead: and calling unto him the centurion, he asked him whether he had been any while dead.

    Now Mark Chapter 16:1-6
    1. And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.
    2. And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.
    3. And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre?
    4. And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.
    5. And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted.
    6. And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.

    John here is my point:

    SUNDAY Is The First Day Of The Week – According To The Jewish Calendar
    SATURDAY Is The Sabbath

    If JESUS Was Crucified On FRIDAY – How Can There Be THREE DAYS Because SCRIPTURE SAYS: 1. And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him.
    2. And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun.

    When The Sabbath Was PAST, Mary Magdalene, And Mary The Mother Of James, And Salome, Had Brought Sweet Spices, That They Might Come And Anoint HIM.

    FRIDAY – DAY ONE
    SATURDAY – SABBATH – DAY TWO
    THE LADIES CAME EARLY ON SUNDAY – THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK TO ANOINT HIM.

    Aren’t We A DAY SHORT If We Believe JESUS Was Crucified On FRIDAY?
