The GRANDE PASSOVER FINALE (Mirror Passover)
The sharing of The FOUR CUPS OF WINE and MATZAH is repeated.
In the Holy Land Israel, this is done on the Seventh 7th Day of the Feast of UNLEAVENED BREAD/PASSOVER.
Most Orthodox Jews spell the word MESSIAH in the Hebrew language with letter “o” instead of “a”. YAH has revealed through HIS Amightywind Ministry that it is meant to be spelt with the letter “a”!
The Great Eighth Day of Pesach/Passover: The Feast of MASHIACH in Commemoration of the Redemption by the MASHIACH/MESSIAH
The Holy Scriptures say,
Revelation 22:12-18 Tree of Life Version (TLV)
[a] 12 Behold, I am coming soon, and My reward is with Me, to pay back each one according to his deeds.
13 “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. [b] 14 How fortunate are those who wash their robes,[c] so that they may have the right to the Tree of Life[d] and may enter through the gates into the city. 15 Outside are the dogs and the sorcerers and the sexually immoral and the murderers and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. 16 I, Yeshua, have sent My angel to testify these things to you for My communities. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.”[e]
17 The Ruach and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come—let the one who wishes freely take the water of life! [f] 18 I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book. If anyone adds to them, God shall add to him the plagues that are written in this book;
In Judaism, there is something called: THE FEAST OF THE MASHIACH! I think it is interesting to learn about this. I understand the the Orthodox Jews are still waiting for the First and Final Coming of the MASHIACH! However, in Messianic Judaism, we are waiting for the Second Coming of the MASHIACH!
It is believed that when the MASHIACH comes, HE will redeem HIS people, Israel whom for years have suffered for the sake of loving and following their GOD, YAHUVEH in a different way to that of the rest of the world.
Based on the New Covenant/Testament, The People of Israel include both biological Jews and non-biological Jews who have accepted YAH’S SALVATION and are faithfully following YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH!
At present, the Orthodox Jews are still blinded by Satan regarding their MASHIACH, however YAH is reaching out to them through people like this Ministry, Amightywind Ministry and many others. We are commanded to love the Holy Land Israel as well as those who have not yet accepted the MASHIACH and pray fro them.
Luke 17:22-37 New Life Version (NLV)
Jesus Tells of His Second Coming
22 Jesus said to His followers, “The time will come when you will wish you could see the Son of Man for one day. But you will not be able to. 23 They will say to you, ‘He is here,’ or, ‘He is there,’ but do not follow them. 24 When the Son of Man comes, He will be as lightning that shines from one part of the sky to the other. 25 But before that, He must suffer many hard things. The people of this day will have nothing to do with Him.
26 “As it was in the time of Noah, so will it be when the Son of Man comes back. 27 People ate and drank. They married and were given in marriage. They did these things until the day Noah went into the large boat. Then the flood came and killed all the people on earth. 28 It was the same in the time of Lot. People ate and drank. They bought and sold. They planted and built. 29 But the day Lot left the city of Sodom, fire and sulphur came down from heaven like rain. It killed all the people of Sodom.
30 “It will be the same on the day when the Son of Man comes again. 31 In that day the man who is on top of a house should not come down to take his things out of the house. In the same way, the man who is in the field should not go back to his house. 32 Remember Lot’s wife!
33 “He who wants to keep his life will have it taken away from him. He who loses his life will have it given back to him. 34 I tell you, on that night there will be two men in the same bed. One of them will be taken. The other will be left. 35 Two women will be grinding grain together. One of them will be taken. The other will be left. 36 *Two men will be working in a field. One will be taken. The other will be left.”
37 Then they asked Jesus, “Where will this happen?” He said to them, “Birds also gather where there is a dead body.”
The eighth day of Pesach is traditionally associated with our hopes for the coming of MASHIACH. For this reason, the haftorah read on that day contains many prophecies which refer to theERA OF REDEMPTION! Among the best-known of these:
- “The wolf will dwell with the lamb; the leopard will lie down with a young goat”;
Isaiah 11:6-9 Tree of Life Version (TLV)
Messianic Age of Shalom
6 The wolf will dwell with the lamb,
the leopard will lie down with the kid,
the calf and the young lion and the yearling together,
and a little child will lead them.
7 The cow and the bear will graze,
their young ones lie down together,
and the lion will eat straw like an ox.
8 A nursing child will play by a cobra’s hole,
and a weaned child will put his hand into a viper’s den.
9 They will not hurt or destroy in all My holy mountain,
for the earth will be full of the knowledge of Adonai,
as the waters cover the sea.
- “He will raise a banner for the nations and gather in the exiles of Israel.”
Isaiah 11:12 Tree of Life Version (TLV)
12 He will lift up a banner for the nations,
and assemble the dispersed of Israel,
and gather the scattered of Judah
from the four corners of the earth.[a]
Historical Jewish Literature states that about two hundred and fifty years ago, as the time for MASHIACH drew closer, an organisation called “Baal Shem Tov” (note that the word “Baal” simply means “LORD”) instituted a custom which underlines the connection between the redemption and the eighth day of Pesach: on that day he would partake of:
“MASHIACH’S Seudah”, The Festive Meal of MASHIACH.
Remember that the Number Eight (8) signifies:
The EIGHTH DAY of the Feast of PESACH and Feast of SUKKOT are very significant days spiritually! The known as:
THE GREAT EIGHTH DAY!
They are all about YAH starting afresh with mankind in a different way therefore when the FESTIVAL OF MASHIACH (a.k.a MASHIACH SEUDAH) is instituted on this day, it makes a lot of sense!
Prophetically, even the Millennial Reign of YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH on this earth will come to an end in the year 8,000 on YAH’S Calendar after which eternity will commence (no counting of time)! There will be totally NEW BEGINNINGS from the year 8,000 and onwards!
Most Orthodox Jews only see the MASHIACH Prophecies in an abstract way and therefore need to be reminded that the Prophecy will come to pass.
The twelfth article of Rambam’s thirteen principles of faith is “I believe with perfect faith in the coming of MASHIACH. Even if he delays, I will wait every day for him to come.” Though all believing Jews accept this principle intellectually, for many the concept of MASHIACH remains an abstraction.
The “MASHIACH’S Seudah” is intended to deepen our awareness of MASHIACH and enable us to integrate it into our thinking processes.
Partaking of “MASHIACH’S Seudah” reinforces our belief in this principle, translating our awareness of MASHIACH into a meal, a physical experience which leads us to associate this concept with our flesh and blood.
Having waiting for the Second Coming of the MASHIACH, it is easy to become weary and start to disbelieve the Holy Prophecies. Remember that as per Matthew 25:1-14, the foolish virgins or bride became tired and weary. They even forgot to top up their oil in preparation for the Holy Rapture/Harvest by YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH , their Bridegroom! However, the wise virgins/bride actually kept strong. They did sleep off and become tired every now and again but they never lost sight of their oil levels. They still ensured their oil was enough always as they had no incline as when their MASHIACH would appear to elope with them.
This world is not easy to live in. It is a wilderness in which we, mankind can easily become forgetful, weary. All kinds of issues come left, right and centre. It can be easy to become oppressed and suppressed. We need constant reminders!
Isaiah 40:5 Tree of Life Version (TLV)
5 The glory of Adonai will be revealed,
and all flesh will see it together.”
For the mouth of Adonai has spoken.
Chassidut explains, that the preparations for a revelation must foreshadow the revelation itself. Since, in the era of the redemption, the revelation of GODLINESS will find expression even in the physical world, it is fitting that our preparation for these revelations be associated with physical activities such as eating and drinking. (Cf. On the Essence of Chassidus, ch. 4, p. 15).
The Transformation of the Worldly
MASHIACH’S Seudah, as mentioned above, is held on the eighth day of Pesach. The TORAH originally commanded us to celebrate Pesach for seven days. When our people were exiled, however, a certain degree of doubt arose regarding the exact date on which the holidays should be celebrated. To solve the problem of determining the Jewish calendar in exile, our sages added an extra day to each festival. In other words, the eighth day of Pesach had been an ordinary day, but through the power endowed by the Torah, the Jewish people were able to transform it into a holy day.
When MASHIACH comes, a similar transformation will occur throughout all of creation. Even the material and mundane aspects of the world will reveal GODLINESS.
Celebration of “MASHIACH’S Seudah” on the eighth day of Pesach—once an ordinary day, now transformed—anticipates the kind of transformation that will characterize the era of the REDEMPTION.
The goal of the Baal Shem Tov’s life was to prepare us for MASHIACH, and the institution of “MASHIACH’S Seudah” was part of that life’s work.
The main ingredient of “MASHIACH’S Seudah” was matzah.
- The tasteless flatness of matzah symbolizes selfless humility, a desire to transcend oneself.
- Wine, by contrast, is flavorful and pleasurable, and thus symbolizes the assertiveness of our individual personalities.
Combining matzah and wine in “MASHIACH’S Seudah” teaches us that self-transcendence does not require that we erase our personal identities.
Self-transcendence may be accomplished within each individual’s nature.
A person can retain his distinctive character and identity, yet dedicate his life to spreading GODLINESS instead of pursuing personal fulfillment.
Once he has fundamentally transformed his will, an individual can proceed to a more complete level of service of YAH in which his essential commitment permeates every aspect of his personality.
Note that “self-transcendence” means the following, according to dictionary.com:
the overcoming of the limits of the individual self and its desires in spiritual contemplation and realization.“the logic of self-transcendence is based on humility, and respect for the mystery we did not create”
Our Call and Responsibility in this Generation
Our generation has been charged with the responsibility of making all Jews (both biological and non-biological) as well as non-Jews (a.k.a Goyim/Gentiles) aware of MASHIACH—and this includes the custom of conducting MASHIACH’S Seudah. This mission is particularly relevant in our day, for it is believed that the biological Jewish people (Orthodox) have completed all the divine service necessary to enable MASHIACH to come.
Song of Songs 2:9 Tree of Life Version (TLV)
9 My lover is like a gazelle
or a young buck among the stags.
Look! He is standing behind our wall—
gazing through the windows,
peering through the lattice.
As the Previous Rebbe expressed it, “We have already polished the buttons.”9 Moshiach is waiting: “Here he stands behind our wall, watching through the windows, peering through the crevices.”10 The walls of exile are already crumbling, and now, in the immediate future, Moshiach will be revealed.
There are those who argue that speaking openly about the coming of Moshiach may alienate some people. The very opposite is true. We are living in the time directly preceding the age of Moshiach. The world is changing, and people are willing, even anxious, to hear about Moshiach. It is thus our duty to reach out and involve as many people as possible in the preparations for his coming.
These endeavors will escalate the fulfillment of the prophecies of the haftorah recited on the eighth day of Pesach:11 “A shoot will come forth from the stem of Yishai . . . , and the spirit of YAH will rest upon him”—with the coming of Moshiach, speedily in our days.
Isaiah 11:1-5 Tree of Life Version (TLV)
The Branch From David
11 Then a shoot will come forth out of the stem of Jesse,
and a branch will bear fruit out of His roots.[a]
2 The Ruach of Adonai will rest upon Him,
the Spirit of wisdom and insight,
the Spirit of counsel and might,
the Spirit of knowledge
and of the fear of Adonai.[b]
3 His delight will be in the fear of Adonai.
He will not judge by what His eyes see,
nor decide by what His ears hear.
4 But with righteousness He will judge the poor,
and decide with fairness for the poor of the land.
He will strike the land with the rod of His mouth,[c]
and with the breath of His lips He will slay the wicked.
5 Also righteousness will be the belt around His loins,
and faithfulness the belt around His waist.
Revelation 22:12-21 Names of God Bible (NOG)
12 “I’m coming soon! I will bring my reward with me to pay all people based on what they have done. 13 I am the A and the Z,[a] the first and the last, the beginning and the end.
14 “Blessed are those who wash their robes so that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. 15 Outside are dogs, sorcerers, sexual sinners, murderers, idolaters, and all who lie in what they say and what they do.
16 “I, Yeshua, have sent my angel to give this testimony to you for the churches. I am the root and descendant of David. I am the bright morning star.”
17 The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” Let those who hear this say, “Come!” Let those who are thirsty come! Let those who want the water of life take it as a gift.
18 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy in this book: If anyone adds anything to this, God will strike him with the plagues that are written in this book. 19 If anyone takes away any words from this book of prophecy, God will take away his portion of the tree of life and the holy city that are described in this book.
20 The one who is testifying to these things says, “Yes, I’m coming soon!”
Amen! Come, Lord Yeshua!
21 The good will[b] of the Lord Yeshua be with all of you. Amen!
