April 23 is Passover/Resurrection Day!!

 
Don't celebrate the counterfeit "resurrection" of Emperor Jesus Constantine on March 27,
celebrate the Resurrection of the true Messiah on April 23.
 

The FIRST place that the Messiah visited after his Resurrection from the dead was the Paradise section of Hades. He liberated all the captives of Death, from Adam and Eve, to the thief who was nailed to the tree with him.

The SECOND place that the Messiah visited was Tartarus or the underworld prison of the fallen angels or Nephilim. He proclaimed the DOOM of Lucifer's engineers who inspired the people to build the Great Pyramid:

For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to Elohim, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit, by whom also he went and proclaimed to the spirits (Nephilim) in prison who formerly were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of Elohim waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water (I St. Cephas 3:18-20).

St. Cephas–an expert on the invisible world–definately links those fallen angels with the wicked antediluvian:

For if Elohim did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to Tartarus and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment; and did not spare the ancient world, but saved Noah, one of eight people, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood on the world of the wicked (II St. Cephas 2:4-5).

A real Jewish historian named Josephus mentioned fallen angels coupling with human women and filling the earth with hybrid monstrosities. (Antiquities, Book 1, Ch. 3).

Beginning at Passover, the early Christians had a week long celebration of the Resurrection called Holy Week, which took the place of the week long Jewish Feast of Unleavened Bread.

Saint Luke, the historian of early Christianity, said that the Resurrection of Christ was based on many INFALLIBLE proofs:

To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of Elohim (Acts 1:3).

Latin Vulgate Jerome omits INFALLIBLE . . . but Popes have no qualms at all about declaring themselves infallible:

To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion, by many proofs, for forty days appearing to them, and speaking of the kingdom of God. (Acts 1:3, Douay-Rheims Version).

Since the days of Moses, the Israelites observed a 7 day Passover/Feast of Unleavened Bread. This 7 day feast commenced with the full moon Passover and commemorated the Exodus from Egyptian bondage.

This great yearly celebration was fulfilled by the Resurrection of Christ from the dead:

And it came to pass about eight days after these sayings, he (JOSHUA) took Cephas and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray. And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering. And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elijah: Who appeared in glory, and spake of his departing (EXODUS) which he should accomplish at Jerusalem (Luke 9:28-31).

The English word departing is from the Greek exodos from which we get the word exit or departing.

This year the Orthodox date for the Resurrection of Christ and Holy Fire in Jerusalem is May 1.

Here is the correct date and it does not rely on the corrupt Gregorian . . . or Julian calendar.

Date
Event
March 20
Vernal equinox. Moving sun is at the equator and days and nights are the same length.
April 7
Passover/Resurrection new moon falls on or after the vernal equinox.
April 23
Passover/Resurrection full moon.

The Resurrection of Christ is the fulfillment of the Exodus from Egypt and it is also a type of the resurrection at the end of the world:

For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming.
Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power (I Corinthians 15:22-24).

No date is given for this great event but plenty of hints are given for those who dig deeper:

For my husband is not at home, he is gone a very long journey. He took with him a bag of money: he will return home the day of the full moon (Proverbs 7:19-20, Douay-RheimsVersion).

Jerome copied that verse correctly from the Old Latin Version because the Hebrew word kehseh means full moon while most other versions say that He will comc back at the appointed time.

Joshua the Son of Elohim quoted that verse almost verbatim in one of His parables:

For the Son of Man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch (Mark 13:34).

The 3 greatest events in the 6000 year history of the world are:

Full Moon 1537 BC
Full moon 30 AD
Full Moon 20??
Exodus from Egypt
Resurrection of Christ
Return of Christ

That is the reason why the Vatican and Islam HATES the bright night full moon so much.

Emperor Constatine changed the Time and Place of the Resurrection!!

Both the time and place of the Resurrection was changed by Emperor Constantine . . . with a lot of help and advice from his mother, Helena Augusta.

Emperor Constantine 272 - 337).

Emperor Jesus Constantine was the grandson of Roman Emperor Caracalla by his mother Julia Domna.

Constantine's mother, Helena Augusta, was a British Druidess.

The marriage of Constantine and Helena foundered the Latin Papacy and the city of Constantinople!!

As well as presiding over the Council of Nicaea, Constantine changed the TIME and PLACE of the Resurrection.

The Mount of Olives was the location of the Resurrection of Christ.

The Resurrection occurred at the full moon Jewish Passover.

Calvary on the Mount of Olives.

This was the site of the Resurrection BC–before Constantine:

Believers in JOSHUA all congregate from all parts of the world....that they may worship at the MOUNT OF OLIVES opposite the city....TO THE CAVE that is shown there. (Eusebius, Proof of the Gospel, Bk. VI. ch. 18).

Only 50 days after the Resurrection on the Mount of Olives, the Messianic kingdom that was predicted by ALL the Old Covenant prophets was officially inaugurated on the Day of Pentecost:

St.Cephas said:

Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day. Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that JEHOVAH had sworn with an oath to him, thatof the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;
He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in Hades, neither his flesh did see corruption. This JOSHUA hath Elohim raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.
Therefore being by the right hand of Elohim exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear (Acts 2:29-33).

After receiving the Holy Spirit, Saint Peter understood perfectly that the Messiah's kingdom was not of this world but a spiritual reign from His throne in Heaven.

Amazing continuity between Rome pagan and papal

When the Romans finally conquered Jerusalem in 135 A.D., as an insult to the Jews, they built a Temple of Venus over a monument to a Jewish freedom fighter named John Hyrcanus.

Venus was worshipped by filthy rites which included temple prostitutes and Sodomites.

This "gloomy shrine of lifeless idols" was the site which Constantine later chose to built his Church of the "Holy" Sepulchre:

This sacred cave, then, certain impious and godless persons had though to remove entirely from the eyes of men, supposing in their folly that thus they should be able effectually to obscure the truth. Accordingly they brought a quantity of earth from a distance with much labor, and covered the entire spot; then, having raised this to a moderate height, they paved it with stone, concealing the holy cave beneath this massive mound. Then, as though their purpose had been effectually accomplished, they prepare on this foundation a truly dreadful sepulchre of souls, by building a gloomy shrine of lifeless idols to the impure spirit whom they call Venus, and offering detestable oblations therein on profane and accursed altars. For they supposed that their object could not otherwise be fully attained, than by thus burying the sacred cave beneath these foul pollutions. (Eusebius, Life of Constantine, chapter 26).

Eusebius knew that this was not the site of the Resurrection, but he had to FLATTER Constantine and PRETEND that it was the right location in order to ensure the survival of any of his historical writings.

Emperor Constantine's mother Helena discovered this site after finding 3 crosses that had not rotted after 3 hundred years!!

If Constantine said the site was at the North Pole it would have been accepted because nobody questioned the Emperor.

 
The so-called tomb of Jesus.
The fake tomb of Joshua.

After the merciless 10 year persecution under Emperor Diocletian, Roman Emperor Constantine married the surviving Christian Congregation–the pure persecuted bride of Christ–with Roman paganism.

This unholy alliance produced the monster that is described in the Book of Revelation:

And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH (Revelation 17:5).

In the northern hemisphere, the pagans had 2 major religious festivals each year. One fell at the time of the winter solstice (December 25) when the sun was low on the horizon, and the other big festival was held after the spring equinox.

After the winter solstice, the pagans saw the days getting longer, so they rejoiced that the SUN was reborn, and they called this festival Dies Natalis Invicti or the birthday of Mithras or the Unconquered SUN.  Today it is called CHRISTMAS.

In the springtime, the pagans saw MOTHER earth coming back to life after the cold deadness of winter and they dedicated the 2nd festival to the great mother goddess of paganism. She was known under many names in the different countries: Venus, Circe, Kali, Asteroth, Easter, Diana etc., etc. St. Paul had a mighty confrontation with this pagan mother in the city of Ephesus:

So that not only this our craft is in danger to be set at nought; but also that the temple of the great goddess Artemis should be despised, and her magnificence should be destroyed, whom all Asia and the world worshippeth (Acts 19:27).

The pagans were SUN worshippers and their 2 big festivals were not concerned with the position of the moon in the sky.

Just as the winter solstice festival is now called the BIRTHDAY of Christ, likewise Easter is now called the ANNIVERSARY of the Resurrection. Thus Constantine succeeded in marrying paganism and Christianity.

The Resurrection of Christ occurred at the time of the Jewish Passover

The great antitype of the deliverance from Egyptian bondage was the death and Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. This great event took place on the anniversary of the Exodus.

The great flight from Egyptian bondage occurred at NIGHT. It was a very, very bright night because it was the time of the FULL MOON. If we know the time when the Passover was celebrated, it should be very easy to calculate the anniversary of the Resurrection.

JEHOVAH told Moses:

In the fourteenth day of the FIRST MONTH at even is JEHOVAH's passover (Leviticus 23:5).

Moses kept the Passover on the anniversary of the Exodus in the wilderness of Sinai:

And they kept the passover on the fourteenth day of the FIRST MONTH at even in the wilderness of Sinai: according to all that JEHOVAH commanded Moses, so did the children of Israel (Numbers 9:5).

For the first 3 centuries of Christianity, the feast of the Passover and Resurrection was celebrated every year by the Christians on the 14th of the month following the new moon, following the equinox....It was the most important holiday on their calendar. Here is a quote from one of  the Early Christian Fathers named Saint Anatolius of Laodicea:

Following their example up to the present time all the bishops of Asiaas themselves also receiving the rule from an unimpeachable authority, to wit, the evangelist John, who leant on the Lord's breast, and drank in instructions spiritual without doubtwere in the way of celebrating the Paschal feast, without question, every year, whenever the fourteenth day of the moon had come, and the lamb was sacrificed by the Jews after the equinox was past.

Here is the reason why the Passover was held at the time of the full moon. Quoting again from Saint Anatolius:

But it is clear that in the Paschal feast it is not possible that any part of the darkness should surpass the light; for the festival of the Lord's resurrection is one of light, and there is no fellowship between light and darkness. And if the moon should rise in the third watch, it is clear that the 22d or 23d of the moon would then be reached, in which it is not possible that there can be a true celebration of Easter. For those who determine that the festival may be kept at this age of the moon, are not only unable to make that good by the authority of Scripture, but turn also into the crime of sacrilege and contumacy, and incur the peril of their souls; inasmuch as they affirm that the true light may be celebrated along with something of that power of darkness which dominates all. (Saint Anatolius of Laodicea).

In the ancient world the night was divided into 4 watches

1st Watch 2nd Watch 3rd Watch 4th Watch
6 to 9 p.m. 9 to 12 Midnight Midnight to 3 a.m. 3 to 6 a.m.

When the moon rises after midnightin the 3rd watchthe darkness is greater than the light for that particular night.

Here are the moonrise and moonset figures for April 18 and April 24 from the U.S. Naval Observatory.

Here is the Roman method for computing Resurrection Day:

  • Easter falls on the first Sunday (Sabbath) following the first ecclesiastical full moon that occurs on or after March 21 (the day of the ecclesiastical vernal EQUINOX).
  • This particular ecclesiastical full moon is the 14th day of a tabular lunation (new moon).

The first NEW MOON after the vernal equinox occurs on April 3, and 14 days later is the full moon and the date for Passover/Resurrection.

Most often, the Roman new moon falls before the equinox or new year, and therefore that full moon belongs to the previous year.

All of this CONFUSION about the date of celebrating the Resurrection of Christ goes back to Emperor Constantine and the Council of Nicaea.

A lunation is the time from ONE new moon to another!!

Since the time of Galileo, with his brainless heliocentric theory, people have stopped looking up and studying the heavens for themselves.

Here is the dictionary definition of a LUNATION:

The time that elapses between successive new moons, averaging 29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes; a lunar month.

A lunation is a complete month from new moon to new moon.

A lunation.
A lunation.
 

A lunation is the time from one new moon to another.

A new moon is a WAXING moon.

Following its full moon, the moon starts to WANE or grow smaller in the sky.

 
A lunation or lunar month.
A lunation or lunar month.

A month consists of about 30 days and a FULL moon belongs to that month's waxing and waning moon.

New moon on April 14.
New moon on April 7.
 
About 14 days!!
 

The new moon following the EQUINOX, or new year, falls on April 7, 2016.

Full moon on April 28.
Full moon on April 22.

Our 2 timekeepers and the sun and moon like the 2 hands on a clock.

JEHOVAH's new year begins at the new moon following the spring equinox

Here is the dictionary definition of the word EQUINOX:

Either of the two times during a year when the sun crosses the celestial equator and when the length of day and night are approximately equal; the vernal equinox or the autumnal equinox. (Webster's Third New International Dictionary).

As you can see from this correct definition, the idea that the earth does the moving–and not the sun–is sheer LUNACY!!

Spring equinox.
Spring equinox.
 

The first day of spring, when the sun is at the equator, falls on March 20. The new year new moon falls on March 30, and the Pascal or Resurrection full moon falls on April 15.

Moses used a solar/lunar calendar. The spring equinox (March 20) began the solar year, and the lunar year began at the first new moon after the equinox.

The Passoverthe anniversary of the Exodus from Egyptian bondage was always celebrated on the 14th day of the FIRST MONTH of the Jewish calendar.

Hibernian (Irish) missionary rebuked the Pope for changing the date of Passover/Resurrection!

The Hibernian Christians received their Christianity from St. Patrick and he was a member of the British Congregation founded by the Apostle Paul around 60 A.D.Copies of the Latin translation of 150 A.D. survived in Britannia, and that was the version that St. Patrick brought to Hibernia. Viking ravages, and the Norman invasion of 1140, destroyed all copies except for the ones in the Secret Archives of the Vatican.

Everywhere the HIbernian saints preached the Gospel of Christ, they were followed by the Roman monks who insisted on their following the corrupt computation of Pope Constantine. It was the greatest controversy of the Dark Ages. Here is an excerpt from a letter to Pope Gregory from that great Hibernian missionary, Saint Columban of Bobbio:

What is your opinion," he asks,  "of an Easter celebrated on the 21st or 22nd moon, which many calculators have shown to be a dark Easter? For I believe it cannot be unknown to your Holiness how disparagingly Anatolius, whom Jerome calls a man of wondrous learning", and whom Eusebius of Caesarea quotes in his Ecclesiastical History, speaks of this age of the moon.
It was unchristian, Columban argues, to keep Easter later than the 20th day after the new moon, because according to Holy Scripture," the Feast of the Passover should be observed only between the 14th and 20th day after the new moon;
it was a crime to celebrate the resurrection of the Lord at a time when darkness was more powerful than light, for after the 20th of the lunar month the moon does not rise till after midnight; it was absurd to celebrate Easter on the 23rd or 24th of March, for, as the vernal equinox falls on 25 March and Christ died after this equinox, that would be to commemorate the Resurrection before the Passion. (Metlake, The Life and Writings of Saint Columban, p.132).
