Parallels

It’s hard to put all information in a diagram so I’ll try to explain the parallels I see between His crucifixion day and that daily sacrificial routine in the Temple.

Jesus was arrested in the garden and Peter was following Jesus from a distance but was recognized as His follower thrice. Peter denied knowing Jesus just as Jesus had prophesied. The cock-crow isn’t a about a rooster, it’s a Roman buggle (little trumpet) to signal change of guard. About 3am.

Matt 26:75 And Peter recalled the word of Yahshua, saying to him, Before a cock crows, you will deny Me three times. And going out, he wept bitterly.


After Jesus’ arrest He was brought to the house of the high priest for interrogation. This was not a formal hearing in court because that was only allowed during daylight hours. At daybreak He was brought before court.

Luke 22:66 And when day came, the body of elders of the people, the chief priests and scribes, were gathered. And they led Him away into their Sanhedrin, saying,


Jesus got a quick mock trial and was bound. At that same time/hour a priest prepared the Altar and then tied/bound a lamb to the Altar in the Temple court as was done every day the first and Second Temple stood.

Mark 15:1 And immediately in the morning, the chief priests with the elders and scribes and all the Sanhedrin having made a council, and having bound Yahshua, they led Him away and delivered Him to Pilate.


Pilate asks Him some questions, gives Him a flogging and finally sentences Him to death. At that 3rd hour the lamb (real animal) was killed in the Temple. In a way it can be said, Jesus symbolically died when Pilate passed the death sentence.

John 18:31 Then Pilate said to them, You take Him and judge Him according to your own Law. Then the Jews said to him, It is not lawful for us to put anyone to death,
Mark 15:25 And it was the third hour and they crucified Him.

 

Jesus gets crucified and darkness starts on the 6th hour. At that same time the second lamb (real animal) is tied to the Altar in the Temple.

Mat 27:45 Now from the sixth hour darkness developed over all the land until the ninth hour.


During the 9th hour Jesus dies and the lamb (real animal) is killed at the Altar in the Temple.
Just before He died our High Priest Jesus said “It is finished”. The exact same words as the High Priest in the Temple said when he killed the lamb (real animal).

Mat 27:45 Now from the sixth hour darkness developed over all the land until the ninth hour.


That conclude the parallels (I’m aware of) between the lamb at the Altar and the Lamb on the cross.
There are a few more in connection with the barley harvest. The times are less exact but I think it’s too beautiful not to mention :-)
During First Fruits also known as Wave Sheaf or presenting the Omer the high priest presented an offering of barley to God. Obviously this barley need to be harvested first. There the parallels start.

On the day Jesus was crucified between the 1st and 6th hour priests went into the barley field and search for the most perfect barley. If it was a lamb the words “without blemish” would be used. Court examined Jesus for ‘legal blemish’ around the 1st hour. (Mark 15:1)

When the perfect barley was found it was tied into a sheaf while still in the ground. It wasn’t cut. Jesus was also tied (Mark 15:1)

The night before First Fruits, just after sun set the priests went into the field followed by the people. There was a whole ceremony before the sheaf was harvested. During this time Jesus was is the tomb. No idea what happened to Him as parallel. Assuming there is a parallel.

During the night the sheaf was prepared for the offering next morning. Again I know of no parallel but perhaps Jesus was being prepared for resurrection?


About the 3rd hour the sheaf was presented to God. Again my feeling says it relates to Jesus (as so many things in the Bible do) but I can only speculate what that is.

Israel, Assyria and 9/11


Isa 9:10 “The bricks have fallen down, but we will rebuild with dressed stone; the fig trees have been felled, but we will replace them with cedars.”

The verse is about rebellion. God had a hedge of protection around Israel and for that reason they were never (sucesfully) attacked. But they fell away so God allowed the Assyrian army to breach His wall for a moment. Short attack and they left. A warning.  A harbinger.

Israel still didn't turn to God but defied Him by swearing the oath of the verse.

Replace low grade bricks by high grade hewn rock. Replace low grade sycamore wood by high grade cedar wood. That simply means they increased military spending.

A while later God allowed the Assyrians total victory.

The Assyrians were the worlds first terrorists because their war strategy was largely based on scare tactics like skinning, burning, etc people.


To the main story; 9/11

God has always been happy with the USA. That changed when God was banned from public schools. The passing of the abortion law is compared to sacrificing to Molech.

God allowed 9/11 to happen as a warning.

A summary of the main parallels.


9/11 was a Sabbath year.

Financial crisis:


America is still in the first warning fase. If it repents God restores prosperity. If not the hedge will be dropped andUSA will suffer as never before. According to the prophet the pattern is always the same. The methods vary. So America can be destroyed by a massive war. But just as well turn into a ultra poor country because of the financial markets crashing. Or whatever God has up His sleeve.
