Ecclesiastes 7:1-2 Names of God Bible (NOG)
Proverbs about Life
7 A good name is better than expensive perfume, and the day you die is better than the day you’re born. 2 It is better to go to a funeral than to a banquet because that is where everyone will end up. Everyone who is alive should take this to heart!
This year, the 26th Nisan/Abib falls on sun-down Tuesday 10th to sun-down Wednesday 11th April 2018!
Having read “The HISTORY OF JOSEPH, THE CARPENTER and EARTHLY FATHER OF YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH,” I thought it good to honour YAHUSHUA’S commandment in relation to honouring the day on which HIS earthly father died as there are blessings in doing so.
This is to be commemorated each year as per YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH’S desire.
YAHUSHUA’S Earthly father was very special to HIM. In fact, Joseph died in a very special way. The shroud in which his body was placed could not be touched or opened by any man as it was made to become like metal by YAHUSHUA Almighty – YAH works in mysterious ways, huh?!
The absence of Joseph during YAHUSHUA’S Earthly Ministry must have been YAHUVEH EL’S Divine Plan so as to enable YAHUSHUA to easily make reference to HIS HEAVENLY ABBA (FATHER).
YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH also had to leave HIS earthly home town as well as assign his closest friends (Apostle YAHuchanan/John, etc) to look after HIS earthly mother, Miryam (a.k.a Mary, Miriam).
- Joseph was not present during YAHUSHUA’S Ministry on earth because he was a very old man at the time of his betrothal to Miryam (a.k.a Mary – YAHUSHUA’S earthly mother). He was therefore close to the end of his life. Joseph died at the age of 111 on the 26th the Month of Nisan/Nissan a.k.a Abib. This became a very special day unto YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH. In fact he asked for it to be commemorated yearly.
- Close to Joseph’s death, YAHUVEH (a.k.a YAHWEH) GOD sent one of HIS Holy Angels to inform him that it was almost time to leave the earth. On hearing that, Joseph went to the Temple and pleaded with YAHUVEH GOD to comfort him in HIS last days on earth plus not let him go to hell, the lake of fire. YAHUSHUA also prayed the same prayer for Joseph. YAHUVEH GOD answered by sending HIS Holy Angel Michael and another Holy Angel to protect and take Joseph’s Spirit and Soul to the HEAVENS. By that time, the demons in hell, the lake of fire had been trying to grab Joseph’s spirit and soul in order to take it to hell, the lake of fire.
- Note that it was revealed in the First Book of Adam and Eve that every human being starting with Adam and Eve would, after earthly death, go to hell the lake of fire until YAHUSHUA (a.k.a YAH’S SALVATION) would come and redeem mankind from the POWER OF SIN and DEATH in the Year 5,500 of earth’s existence. It would be after that, that mankind would have the privilege to die and go to the HEAVENS instead. It meant that all of mankind who died before YAHUSHUA’S Sacrificial Death on the Cross and Glorious Resurrection would go to hell the lake of fire until YAHUSHUA’S Blood dropped onto Adam’s head while YAHUSHUA was on the Cross thereby effecting YAH’S Salvation upon all of mankind. This is why Joseph really pleaded with YAHUVEH GOD not to let him go to hell the lake of fire but to the Shammayim/Heavens rather. Joseph knew the history of his forefathers as well as the history of the earth. Joseph was also seeing spiritually what was happening in his last days after YAH let him know that he would be dying soon and that he should prepare for eternity.
Joseph died of an unnamed sickness at the age of 111 (the sickness was an avenue for ABBA YAHUVEH (a.k.a YAHWEH) to leave this earth) This implies that he was married to Miryam for just 24 years. YAHUSHUA was 21 years at this time. Miriam was 36 years old.

Therefore, the whole age of my father, the just  old man, made up one hundred and eleven years, for so my heavenly Father decreed. And the day on which his soul departed from his body, was the twenty-sixth of the month Abib. For now the fine gold began to lose its brightness, and the silver to be worn with use, I mean his intellect and understanding. Moreover, he loathed his food and drink, and his skill in the carpenter’s trade failed him, nor did he any longer have regard to it. It came to pass, therefore, at daybreak on the twenty-sixth day of the month of Abib, that the soul of the old man, Joseph the Just, was rendered unquiet as he lay in his bed, “Wherefore, he opened his mouth and sighed, and smote his hands together, and cried out, with a loud voice, saying after this manner:
