2. A Matzah Insight

Matzah is the unleavened bread used at Pesach (Passover) and part is called the Afikomen. This is the only gentile (Greek) word used within this Jewish festival meal. It shows the inclusion of Gentiles into G-d’s plan of redemption, revealed within His feast depicting how He leads His people Jew or Gentile out of bondage and into covenant relationship with Himself.

3. The Matzah Tash (Bag)

This beautifully embroidered linen bag is used by Jewish families around the world as they celebrate Pesach each year. It has three compartments or sections within it where three pieces of matzah bread are placed. The Matzah Tash has become a very important part of the seder meal ranking alongside the seder dish containing the roasted shank bone, two types of bitter herbs, roasted egg, charoset (apple sauce mixture) parsley and salted water.

4. The Passover Plate

Why is this night different from all other nights? It is about ‘the telling’ or Haggadah in fulfilment of the command to ‘tell your son’ – Exodus 13:8. The ‘Haggadah’ is a service book which contains the Exodus account from Scripture of the Children of Israel leaving Egypt. It also contains rabbinic comments and traditions along with prayers and holiday songs.

5. The Four Cups of Passover and their meaning

Any believer reading the Gospel accounts of the Passover Meal will see that two cups are mentioned in Luke chapter 22 and just not one as we are accustomed to seeing in the other three Gospels. We are accustomed to only one as this is the cup our Messiah Y’shua referred to as being the New Covenant (in His blood) promised in Jeremiah 31:31. Let us note that every covenant is ratified through the shedding of blood as a sacrifice unto God.

7. Wounded For Me

The number 5 denotes grace and responsibility. It struck me that when chapters and verses were given to scripture " He was wounded for our transgressions " became verse 5 of chapter 53 of Isaiah. A surgeon looking at this verse, instantly saw Calvary. He pointed out that there are five kinds of wounds that can be inflicted on the human body. Jesus bore them all. Truly, He was "wounded for our transgressions".

The Day of Atonement

Understanding Yom Kippur

Date: 2020-02-02,

The English equivalent for Yom Kippur is The Day of Atonement. The word atonement has to be seen from a Hebraic understanding to fully grasp its meaning. Kippur is from the Hebrew word ‘kaphar’ meaning to cover, so on Yom Kippur (The Day of Atonement) a covering was made for the previous year’s sins.

Moshiach – the Leper King

Date: 2020-02-02,

Why the name? – ‘The Leper King’ – because within Judaism the Rabbi’s teach that the Moshiach (Messiah) is stricken, smitten, afflicted for our sins (see Isaiah chapter 53 verse 4) and so the Anointed One becomes unclean for us. ‘By His stripes we are healed.’ – verse 5 Few lepers were ever cleansed and yet Yeshua (Jesus) did this as recorded in Luke 5:12-15 and Luke 7:11-19.

Chanukah – a Feast of Light and Dedication

The History of Chanukah

Date: 2020-02-02,

The Historical Anti-Semitism of 168BC. The kingdom of Alexander the Great was divided up after his death and Syria and Judah was ruled by King Antiochus III. King Antiochus IV came next as the king of the Syrian Greeks and he bore down on his Jewish subjects with a measure of ruthlessness, stubbornness and cruelty that earned him the nickname Antiochus the Madman.

Chanukah Insights

Date: 2020-02-02,

Many Jewish scholars see a deeper spiritual meaning to Chanukah as a time of light and dedication. The editors of the popular Artscroll Mesorah Series state: ‘Then, the light is kindled to give inspiration, for the light of Messiah must burn brightly in our hearts’. This is a logical conclusion. Because Chanukah is a celebration of deliverance, it has also become a time to express Messianic hope.

Messiah in the Psalms

His Sonship – Psalm 2:7 and 110:1.
His Manhood – Psalm 8:4-5.
and more...

[ Go to article ] [ Back to top ]

Psalm 1

This is the first of at least eight Psalms called didactic, which means to teach or instruct morally. In other words these are spiritual life application principles that are to be seen within the physical realm, this therefore being our walk before God.

[ Go to article ] [ Back to top ]

Psalm 2

This is our first Messianic Psalm and is one of at least ten, there are others that show the Messianic Age or Rule of our Redeemer, the blessed Lord Jesus Christ.

[ Go to article ] [ Back to top ]

Psalm 3

This is another Psalm of David who now pours out his heart and feelings to the Lord when he fled from the fury of his son Absalom (cf. 2 Samuel 15:14). In this chapter of Samuel we read of the sad story of family disunity and the resulting rebelliousness seen in David’s son Absalom and David’s resulting flight to safety with some close friends.

[ Go to article ] [ Back to top ]

Psalm 4

We may call this an ‘evening hymn’ being sung from the lips of David, for these eight verses show us David’s trust and plea before the Lord before retiring to sleep (see verse 8) in peace and safety before the Lord his God.

[ Go to article ] [ Back to top ]

Psalm 5

The Psalms show us every facet of our human character, feelings and spirituality. In them we have a classic understanding of ‘there is nothing new under the sun’ within our thinking towards everyday life under God. For centuries men, women and children have found comfort and guidance by turning to God’s Word and in particular the Pslams.

[ Go to article ] [ Back to top ]

Psalm 6

What a contrast we have here to Psalm 5. What a difference a day can make when we walk and do things in the flesh instead of the spirit.

[ Go to article ] [ Back to top ]

Psalm 7

Here is the cry of the oppressed recorded for us to learn from. It is the story of so many of God’s people as they are persecuted within this world. In David’s case we see it is against Cush, a Benjamite who was from the same tribe as Saul and probably one of his lieutenants.

[ Go to article ] [ Back to top ]

Psalm 8

This Psalm may in some ways be known as the Song of the Astronomer for there is much in the night sky to stand in awe of God’s creation within the universe. The first and last verses are a sweet song of admiration from the mouth of the psalmist as he meditates on the excellence of God’s holy name and His glory which is above the heavens – so we have yet to see God’s best in everything which is fully reserved for the age to come.

[ Go to article ] [ Back to top ]

Psalm 9

This Psalm of David is one of prayer and thanksgiving but it is also prophetic as it shows us the end times and our Messiah’s Millennium Kingdom.

[ Go to article ] [ Back to top ]

Psalm 10

Psalm 10 follows on from Psalm 9 with the same theme, that being the evil seen within the wicked of this world. So we move from the evil one and his influence upon the nations in Psalm 9 to the evil seen within men in Psalm 10.

[ Go to article ] [ Back to top ]

Psalm 11

Faith or fear?

[ Go to article ] [ Back to top ]

Psalm 12

This is a short psalm of only eight verses where David turns to the Lord to express his despair and then his feelings about evil men but once again turns to rest and put his hope in his God and ours by expressing his faith and trust in the Lord God Most High.

[ Go to article ] [ Back to top ]

Psalm 13

Along with another couple of the psalms we find that Psalm 13 is the fifth shortest out of the 150 Psalms with Psalm 117 being the shortest with just 2 verses! Then we have Psalm 131 and Psalm 134 being the second smallest with just 3 verses and Psalm 123 being third with 4 verses and Psalm 125 fourth with 5 verses.

[ Go to article ] [ Back to top ]

Psalm 14

This is a Psalm of David which shows us the whole plan of God towards Israel and the Nations of this world. There is a picture here of a courtroom drama as well as a type of the final judgement of all who reject God and find themselves standing before Him at the Great White Throne Judgement Seat at the end of the Millennium Age.

[ Go to article ] [ Back to top ]

Psalm 15

Just as in Psalm 14 we saw the ‘folly’ of men so then in Psalm 15 we shall see the ‘wisdom’ of men. Those that put their trust and hope in the Living God the Creator of all.

[ Go to article ] [ Back to top ]

Psalm 16

If there is one word that can best describe Psalm 16 it is satisfied. But there are also divine secrets that show us 6 (this being the number of man) blessed secrets that God has for each and everyone of us who love, follow and obey Him.

[ Go to article ] [ Back to top ]

Psalm 17

This prayer shows David’s confidence in finally seeing his salvation fully completed when he awakens in the likeness of His God and ours (see verse 15). In other words this will be when his spiritual body is given a physical resurrection body.

[ Go to article ] [ Back to top ]

Psalm 18

This song of David is one of thanksgiving and praise because the Lord had delivered him from all his enemies, in particular King Saul who had hounded him so much seeking his life.

[ Go to article ] [ Back to top ]

Psalm 19

Psalm 19 is similar to Psalm 9 in that it shows the glory of God within His creation but this Psalm goes further in teaching us how to apply the spiritual life application principles of God’s Word to ourselves and how to keep them as verses 12 and 13 show us.

[ Go to article ] [ Back to top ]

Psalm 20

This short Psalm of David’s shows his cry for help unto the Lord once again as he and his people have to go into battle against their enemies.

[ Go to article ] [ Back to top ]

Psalm 21

This Psalm of King David is connected to Psalm 20 when we compare and contrast verse 2 of Psalm 21 with verse 4 of Psalm 20. In it we can read of thanksgiving, rejoicing, joy, mercy, deliverance, assurance, trust and dependence. It is a beautiful poem of salvation in all its elements towards those who believe.

[ Go to article ] [ Back to top ]

Psalm 22

Psalm 26

The three main themes of these 12 verses in Psalm 26 are: 1) Self examination, 2) Sanctification and 3)Salvation.

[ Go to article ] [ Back to top ]

Psalm 27

This Psalm came about through the evil words of Doeg the Edomite after speaking against David to Saul as recorded in 1 Samuel 22:6-23. The first verse proclaims David’ complete trust in the Lord for his salvation, spiritually, mentally, physically, socially and morally.

[ Go to article ] [ Back to top ]

Psalm 28

This is another Psalm where David is seeking his God and ours in prayer. He is asking once again for deliverance from his enemies. There are then a number of intercessory prayers from David where he cries out to the Lord because he is being pursued by one enemy or another who are jealous or envy and some who even hated him.

[ Go to article ] [ Back to top ]

Psalm 29

This Psalm speaks of God’s pre-eminence, power, and people. In using Midrashic principles we will be able to compare and contrast to illuminate and illustrate God’s plan and purposes that searching the Scriptures brings forth.

Psalm 30

This psalm is a reflection of David’s life as a whole and so reflects ours as well. So much of what is written is a cameo or picture of what takes place in our own lives. There is much for us to learn from the life of David, not only is he a type of our Messiah but of ourselves.

[ Go to article ] [ Back to top ]

Psalm 31

Once again we see David relying on his God and ours in the ups and downs of life. We will all experience high and lows, mountains and valleys in our life and so we need to totally rely on the Lord in all things, in every season and in every circumstance.

If Messiah is better than the Law then He must be better than the fivefold sacrificial system given by G-d within the Law to Moses. These 5 sacrifices were: 1) The Sin Offering, 2) The Trespass offering, 3) The Peace Offering, 4) The Burnt Offering, and 5) The Meal Offering.

B) The Fulfilment Of The 5 Sacrifices Within The New Testament

A reading of these verses will show us just how He became our sin, trespass, peace, burnt and meal offering.
