Can you show me where in the Christian Bible it was when JESUS CHRIST told HIS disciples before HE ascended into Heaven after HIS resurrection, 'Now that I have died and paid the penalty for sin on man's behalf and resurrected to life, you no longer need to keep GOD's ordained Feasts of the Old Covenant but from now on you shall keep Easter and Christmas instead. And the New Covenant made in MY BLOOD which I have instituted in the Passover on the evening that began the 14th day of Nisan of the Sacred Calendar, as the annual commemoration of my death, commanding and instructing you to commemorate in the exact same manner annually on the same appointed time as this being the New Covenant, well you can forget all about that because it was all just for a masochistic self glorifying show off, everything that I taught and commanded in MY three and half years with you, are from now on totally irrelevant, you just go do anything you want and I will fully back you up'.
JESUS specifically instituted and commanded HIS disciples before HE died, to commemorate HIS death (Luke 22:19; 1 Corinthians 11:25). After HE rose from death HE had plenty of time and opportunities to inform them to commemorate HIS resurrection before HE ascended to HIS FATHER in Third Heaven but HE didn't.
But rather many years after that, the Apostle Paul (the last of the twelve to be called as the replacement for the failed Judas Iscariot) who was also called into the ministry to be an Apostle to the Gentiles, was commanded and instructed to commemorate the Passover on the exact same day annually and in the exact same manner. For the full records of Paul's calling and conversion to his being separated to specially preach to the gentiles read the following chapters in the Book of Acts: Chapter 2 to Chapter 41.
The LORD JESUS CHRIST, HIMSELF directly commanded the Apostle Paul to keep and observe the Passover commemorating HIS death as the New Covenant. Paul who was not with the original first twelve Apostles when JESUS instituted the New Testament Passover, received a direct commandment from LORD JESUS, yes direct from GOD's Throne in Heaven, to commemorate the Passover, for Paul wrote:
The Passover was commanded to Paul an Apostle to the Gentiles many years after JESUS had died on that same Passover day that was first commanded to the Israelite to be commemorated on the same date and time annually (of the Sacred Calendar). This was many years after the New Testament Church of GOD was founded on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:1 – 4) soon after JESUS ascended to GOD having given charges, instructions and commandments to HIS disciples (Mathew 28:19 – 20; John 21:15 – 17; Acts 1:1 – 5). JESUS commanded Paul to commemorate the Passover or the so called LORD's Supper. HE did not command nor authorize the changing of the commemoration of the Passover which is the New, the Final and The Everlasting Covenant, from the day HE died to the day He was resurrected which incidentally was on Saturday before the sun set ending Saturday (Matthew 12:40; Matthew 27:46 – 50; Luke 23:50 – 56) and not Sunday morning contrary to the lies of the Christmas religion).
Rather, many years after all that had happened, JESUS directly commanded the Apostle Paul to commemorate HIS death on the same annual Passover day during the Feast of Unleavened Bread. JESUS reconfirmed HIS commandments to keep the Passover to commemorate HIS death to the Apostle Paul directly from GOD's throne in Heaven. That was what the Apostle Paul wrote in his epistle. Wasn't this what was plainly and literally recorded? Who had all of mainstream “Christianity” so completely duped and deceived, until they cannot even understand the simple and clear records of the Holy Christian Scriptures?
JESUS CHRIST did not command Paul (as was claimed by the Man of Sin, the Son of Perdition and all his cohorts when they took over control of the Church of GOD in this last era), “But since now I am resurrected let us forget about all that death stuff and focus on my resurrection because I am risen, I am alive, celebrate my resurrection. Don't be ashamed of my gospel, don't leave me hanging on the cross or buried in the grave, celebrate my resurrection, I am risen, I am risen.”
All those who preached such deceptive twisting of the Words of the ALMIGHTY GOD are the evil agents of the great murderer and adversary Satan the Devil twisting the Gospel message of JESUS CHRIST to deny mankind the redemption and salvation that is offered through the BLOOD and Death of JESUS CHRIST in the Everlasting New Covenant with GOD (the FATHER).
The New Covenant is in the keeping and observing (not the breaking of it by changing it to another time or another day or observing it in any other manner) of the commemoration of the Passover (Matthew 26:28; Mark 14:27; Luke 22:20; 1 Corinthians 11:25; Hebrews 9:15; 12:24) exactly as JESUS CHRIST had ordained, instituted and commanded it to be observed (Hebrews 5:9). That was what the Gospel of JESUS CHRIST testified to! That was what the Scriptures of Truth testified to! That is what the Christian Bible of today testified to! Why had “Christianity” not believed the Gospel but had believed the lies of the Antichrists instead?
Satan the Devil failed to have JESUS murdered as a baby (Matthew 2:13 – 18) and he failed to disqualify CHRIST as the MEDIATOR (and MESSENGER) of the New Covenant (Hebrews 12:24) WHO died as the sacrificial LAMB of GOD (John 1:29) who takes away the sins of the world. JESUS died to pay the death penalty incurred by mankind because all have sinned in breaking the Royal Laws and Holy Commandments of GOD (1 Corinthians 7:19). The Evil One, Satan the Devil, then engineered through his agents the Churches of Antichrists, whom the Christian Holy Scriptures had recorded as MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT,THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH, to deny mankind the salvation that comes from entering into to honor and keep the New Covenant made in the BLOOD of the SON of GOD, our SAVIOR, REDEEMER KING and LORD JESUS.
Voiding The Grace Of GOD.
The changing of the Passover which is changing from the commemoration of CHRIST's death to that of commemorating and celebrating Easter Sunday, claimed as commemorating CHRIST's resurrection, is tantamount to BREAKING and therefore VOIDING the NEW AND EVERLASTING COVENANT (1 Corinthians 11:25; Hebrew 13:20; Isaiah 24:5) which is in CHRIST's BLOOD that HE shed to pay for the sins of all mankind. That has been why, it was and still is, so crucially important for Satan the Devil and his agents, the Churches of the Antichrists that the world does not commemorate CHRIST's death according to the commandment of GOD and the clear records of Holy Christian Scriptures. If you (having believed, repented and entered into, to then turned to) break the New and Everlasting Covenant with GOD there is no longer a sacrifice for sin for you, you are no longer under grace but Eternal Judgment (Hebrew 10:26 - 27).
‘Why would a religious belief system or religious order/organization use the office of the Emperor of a pagan emperor worshiping empire to convene a religious council to settle differences between different congregations?’
Think you know the answer?
Here it is, the true answer:
‘To leverage the political power of the Emperor to have their doctrines be given political sanction or endorsement, meaning enforceable sanctions against those that would disagree with, or refuse to obey their doctrines.’
Ask yourself another question:
‘Why would the SON of man, the MESSIAH, MESSENGER and MEDIATOR of the New Covenant who died to institute the New Covenant through which GOD redeemed all humankind from the death penalty caused by their sins, institute the New Covenant in the Passover on one specific day of the Sacred Calendar and command all HIS Apostles and disciples to commemorate the memorial of the same, on the same specific day and in the same exact manner, the commemoration being the very New Covenant made in HIS BLOOD, then some three hundred years later had a Council that was supposedly of HIS so called faithful obedient followers or disciples, changed it to Easter Sunday so that some hundred years later, such supposedly so called faithful followers (i.e catholic religious entity) could then hunt down, torture and murder all those who would obey, honor and keep the New Covenant, who would refuse to disobey and refuse to break, HIS original commandments to commemorate the Passover as the memorial of HIS death?’
And for this reason He is the Mediator of the new covenant, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, that those who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance.
And that may sound very valid, very true. Right?
But even this is just the half of it, not only do they lusted to believe lies, they (applicable to all who have read this and also some of the rest of this work) also willfully and stubbornly refused to believe obvious, simple, evident truth; willfully rejected clear undeniable truth so that they can continue to willfully lust uncontrollably and unceasingly to believe lies.
