The Last Supper, The Prayer in the Garden, The Crown of Thorns
Luke 22:16 “For I tell you, I will not eat it again until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.” 1 Samuel 16:11 Samuel told Jesse, “Send for him. We won’t sit down to eat until he gets here.” In likeness, the next meal is not shared until Christ arrives in the Millennium’s Kingdom Rule. But before that can take place, Daniel 2:44 must be completed in crushing the Kingdoms on earth and throwing Satan and his demons into the abyss for their 1000 year sleep over.
Deuteronomy 8:3 “He humbled you by letting you go hungry; then He gave you manna to eat, which you and your fathers had not known, so that you might learn that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD.” Matthew 26:26 [ The First Lord’s Supper ] As they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take and eat it; this is My body.”
Manna from Heaven that was for physical nourishment only. John 6:49 “Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died.” Christ represented the bread. John 6:58 This is the bread that came down from heaven; it is not like the manna your fathers ate—and they died. The one who eats this bread will live forever.” Christ is the “hidden manna” Revelation 2:17 “Anyone who has an ear should listen to what the Spirit says to the churches. I will give the victor some of the hidden manna. I will also give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name is inscribed that no one knows except the one who receives it.” It was hidden for only those that come under the Ransom Sacrifice with good hearts. But it’s not literal – it’s symbolic. It’s the acceptance of the Truth and willingness to obey Yahweh.
Learning “The Way” is actually nothing more than learning what Yahweh expects. The Way (the “New” Way as opposed to the “Old” Way).” The “Old Way” is Satan’s way. The “New” Way is getting people back on course to “The Way” that Yahweh expects – that’s the Divine Plan. Keep in mind that Yahweh has NEVER changed – it was the entrance of SIN that veered Mankind and angels off the correct course of “The Way.”
When the Holy Angels were first created, Yahweh transmitted His Laws to them (The Way) through the Word (Spokesman) Michael (Archangel) who became Christ (Savior), that he expected all of them to adhere to. They were also all sworn in as Deputies to uphold those Laws (Yahweh’s Way.) They (the angelic hosts) all knew that an expansion of creation was soon to be underway. You have to consider that they did not foresee the fall of Dawn Lucifer nor the new creation of Mankind taking a wrong course. They were preparing to police creation as Yahweh expanded Mankind throughout the visible creation from planet to planet. For the faithful remnant, “The Way” will eventually remove time (the keeping track of it) and be replaced back to Eternity. After the final test, you move away from the counting of time. You become ageless throughout eternity.
Luke 22:42 “Father, if You are willing, take this cup away from Me—nevertheless, not My will, but Yours, be done.” Christ Jesus drank from the cup of wrath that will be poured out on this wicked world. He did not want to die. He did it because of his love for Father and Creation. That’s why he spoke about whether or not She could take the cup from him. But in the end, he left the decision in Yahweh’s hands. He followed through on his promise, and She kept Hers. This revealed that both his mind and heart were in union with Father’s Will.
By his doing so, those that are salvaged will not be part of the wrath. Instead, the wrath will pass over them, for Father’s wrath comes from on high, and only those that do not receive Salvation will receive the final contents of that cup. When the cup is poured out, it symbolizes that Father’s anger has been emptied upon Her enemies and that the anger has passed away from Her. Her restraint to take action for past sins is no longer necessary because the penalty for sinful humans has been paid by all human offenders, including one that never deserved Her wrath. Christ Jesus. His consumed portion of wrath relieves those salvaged from tasting the bitter wine Father has prepared.
Ezekiel 28:13 “You were in Eden, the garden of God. Every kind of precious stone covered you: carnelian, topaz, and diamond, beryl, onyx, and jasper, sapphire, turquoise and emerald. Your mountings and settings were crafted in gold; they were prepared on the day you were created.” Eden being the chosen place to start Mankind off on the correct path, and the place where Yahweh was betrayed by Dawn Lucifer – now Satan the Devil; in likeness, Jesus was also betrayed in a garden. John 18:1-3 “Jesus Betrayed. After Jesus had said these things, He went out with His disciples across the Kidron Valley, where there was a garden, and He and His disciples went into it. Judas, who betrayed Him, also knew the place, because Jesus often met there with His disciples. So Judas took a company of soldiers and some temple police from the chief priests and the Pharisees and came there with lanterns, torches, and weapons.”
Satan betrayed Yahweh with a lie (Genesis 3:4); he became the first “son of destruction.” He, like Judas Iscariot who later betrayed Jesus with a kiss, sought treasure of the visible creation; they both were greedy and without regard for what their selfish actions might bring upon others. Satan unwittingly caused Jesus to be put to death because he was blinded to Yahweh’s Divine plan to break up his works and put an end to sin, but Satan was so jealous of Jesus (whom he had known as The Word Michael before he came to Earth) and he was blinded by the hate he had permitted to grow inside his heart against Yahweh’s first-born; his anger against Michael did not permit him to reason out why Yahweh might permit the taking of Jesus life without intervention on Yahweh’s part. Satan agreed to test Michael for Yahweh, knowing that if Michael failed, Yahweh would raise a sword to bring Michael’s eternal death.
Matthew 27:16 “At that time they had a notorious prisoner called Barabbas.” Barabbas represented the sinners that are substituted by Christ’s Ransom Sacrifice; in essence, Christ took away their sins and took their place to die a literal death on their behalf. Barabbas was deserving of the death penalty, but his release was effected by substitution of someone that did nothing deserving of the death penalty; this is how Yahweh is able to balance the scales of justice on Mankind’s behalf. Matthew 27:26 “Then he released Barabbas to them. But after having Jesus flogged, he handed Him over to be crucified.”
Matthew 27:29 “They twisted together a crown of thorns, put it on His head, and placed a reed in His right hand. And they knelt down before Him and mocked Him: “Hail, King of the Jews!” Christ’s “crown of thorns” represented the cursed ground as part of his sacrificial death. What was Mankind created from? The GROUND; that’s what we are if we fail the mark.
The thorns in Jesus’ crown were also representative of Satan being a thorn in Father’s side as Her archenemy. Ezekiel 2:6 “But you, son of man, do not be afraid of them or their words, though briers and thorns are beside you and you live among scorpions. Don’t be afraid of their words or be discouraged by [the look on] their faces, for they are a rebellious house.” All of Satan’s followers including himself are rebels of the House of Father but they don’t have much time left. Hebrews 6:8 “But if it produces thorns and thistles, it is worthless and about to be cursed, and will be burned at the end.” Ezekiel 28:24 “The house of Israel will no longer be hurt by prickling briers or painful thorns from all their neighbors who treat them with contempt. Then they will know that I am the Lord GOD .”
