MESSIAH IN EZEKIEL’S NEW FESTIVAL OF ROSH HASHANAH AND CHANUKKAH II
Torah Pictures Inc.
The business of the Kingdom of Adonai is like the Motion Picture Industry. Adonai has set the highest standard for storytelling and history making. The truths conveyed by the heavenly Father’s Torah are eternal. His Living Torah pictures are not finite, mortal, corruptible, or capable of passing away. Living Torah is what Adonai uses to sustain and uphold all of life. The D’var HaShem is the glue that holds the entire universe together. The Word of G-d is the source and sustainer of all life both in the realm of the physical (temporal) and the spiritual (eternal). Adonai is the Lord of eternity (Avi’ad). He is the Creator (Hayotzer). He is the Conscious Causal Agent who made this physical universe (with its emerging physical properties) and you and me (with His emerging conscious properties). He is the Sovereign King of all rule, power, and authority (Melekh HaMelakhim). He is our All-sufficient One (El Shaddai). He is the One Who transcends all that He has made (El Elyon). Abba Avinu is our Eternal Rabbi (Teacher). He is the Master Teacher of all Science and Medicine. He is the One who one day will heal all of our diseases (Adonai Rapha) and grant us the gift of eternal life.
The Storyboard of G-d’s Living Torah:
Step #1. When you produce a film in Hollywood you must write your own story. You must produce a script, craft a screenplay, make a storyboard (the Tanakh and Brit Chadashah). You need to find a Producer who will secure the financing for the film (Abba Avinu). The Producer will have to hire a skilled Director who knows how to orchestrate the multifaceted, complex work of the project (Ruach Ha-Kodesh).
Step #2. You will need to hire and manage a cast and crew (prophets, priests and kings). Enlist a team of technical and administrative experts to support the film (scribes) and select, secure and set up the locations where the scenes will be shot: at the principal location (at home in Israel) and in other select locations around the world (Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Persia, Greece, etc.).
Step #3. The actors and extras will need to be contracted to act out the scenes (covenants, laws, precepts, commandments). The actors and extras will need coaching and several rehearsals will be required to ensure all the sound and visual elements of the motion picture are acted out and filmed correctly (multiple fulfilling prophecy). Your technical experts will shoot the scenes (the Spirit and his holy angels), insert special effects (signs, wonders and miracles), add background (providence) and music (the psalms), and edit your film (textual development).
Step #4. Then you will assign a permanent title (the Bible), produce a final cut (Tanakh and Brit Chadashah), get the film rated (the Inerrant, Perfect D’var HaShem), and present the film to several test audiences for critical review (Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and the remotest part of the earth).
Step #5. Your motion picture will likely go through several revisions before you release it (numerous translations for international marketability and distribution).
Step #6. Then you will determine the exact time the picture will be introduced (publicized) and released to the general public.
Step #7. Your marketing staff (the malakim) will help you advertise and distribute your film. When you have successfully internationally run the showing of your film and completed the motion picture project then your financial experts will assist you in your final profit and loss accounting and payout to investors (the Sealing of the Books).
Step #8. When your film is a big hit you will receive public recognition for your team’s artistic achievements (Academy Awards in Heaven). Then you can throw an awesome, fantastic joy-filled party that will last forever. The post-award unending party-banquet will be held in the Producer and Director’s new incredible Mansion (new heaven and earth) in honor of all the investors, cast, crew and other personnel and agencies who helped the Producer and the Director create the “Greatest Story Ever Told” and the “Best Picture” that will ever be made.
In the days ahead, Spring and Summer 2018:
In the days ahead we will attempt to storyboard the prophetic meanings of the details that are scribed into the rabbinic narrative of the “Five Barley Loaves and Two Fishes.” The Spirit of Wisdom (Ruach Ha-Chokmah) brilliantly inserts into Messiah’s teaching several key Torah symbols and Hebrew Scripture fragments that reveal to us His plan for our forgiveness and His plan for bringing into existence the establishment of His messianic kingdom here on earth (cf. the Administration of Mordecai). Our supreme need today is to value aright the Spirit of Truth (Ruach HaEmet) and to understand His royal virtue of “littleness,” of “humility;” especially as it pertains to our responding in a proper manner to the Testimony of the Messiah (cf. the Proceedings of the Heavenly Court) and to our thoroughly understanding the supreme mitzvah of hospitality (הכנסת אורחים-hachnasat orchim,”Bringing in the guests“); which when applied properly is the fulfillment of the royal law:
“וְאָהַבְתָּ לְרֵעֲךָ כָּמוֹךָ”
You shall love your neighbor as your self.
These are the two central lessons of Rabbi Yeshua’s messianic teaching on the “Five barley loaves and Two fishes.” In the days ahead I will attempt to explain how and why the Living Torah of the Father of Lights, oftentimes, is presented in a veiled manner. I will carefully explore His skillful use of symbols, prophetic elements, and selected fragments from the Tanakh that Rabbi Yeshua uses in the narrative of the barley loaves and fishes to make up His teaching on the Kingdom of Adonai.
A. First, we will divide Messiah’s Torah up into useful bite size pieces.
B. Second, we will distribute these insights to you the reader along with a brief explanation of what each piece (morsel) prophetically means.
C. Then third, we will organize into a coherent whole all of the pieces of knowledge that we will have gleaned up to that point into a single “basket” of integrated messianic meanings and applications.
The Cleansing of the Temple narrative is presented in Six parts:
The meta-narratives of the Cleansing of the Temple we will next be studying in chronological order are:
1. PART 1. Mystery of the Five Barley Loaves and Two Fishes
2. PART 2. Yeshua Walks on the Water
3. PART 3. “I Am the Bread of Life”
4. PART 4. “He who eats this Bread will live Forever”
5. PART 5. This is a difficult saying, “Who can hear it?”
6. PART 6. Shimon Peter’s Confession of Faith
Messiah’s overall narrative of “Cleansing the Temple” applies to all six of these sub-narratives. Why? Because the time-frame for all six of these meta-narratives is when “Pesach was near” (references 1, 2, 3, and its close equivalent 4).
This particular phrase “Pesach was near” and its related close equivalent, “Six days (שִׁשָּׁה יָמִים) before Pesach” is a prophetic marker subtly and expertly employed by the Beloved Disciple Yochanan. Therefore, what we are seeing in the “Pesach was near,” and “six days before Pesach” type phrases is a Nisan 1- 7 and Nisan 8 (springtime) prophetic depiction. The Spirit of Revelation (Ruach he-Chazon) is revealing to us what the (soon coming) messianic kingdom of Adonai is really all about. So, with this spiritual motivation fresh in our minds, let us next examine the text of the first of our six part (PART 1) series on the Dedication (Cleansing) of the Temple of G-d: the “Mystery of the Five Barley Loaves and Two Fishes.“
Mystery of the Five Barley Loaves and Two Fishes (the Fourth Sign):
After these things Yeshua (the Salvation of Adonai) went away to the other side of the Sea of Galilee (or Tiberias). A large crowd followed Him, because they saw the signs which He was performing on those who were sick. Then Yeshua went up on the mountain, and there He sat down with His disciples. Now the Passover, the feast of the Yehudim, was near. Therefore Yeshua, lifting up His eyes and seeing that a large crowd was coming to Him, said to Philip, “Where are we to buy bread, so that these may eat?” This He was saying to test him, for He Himself knew what He was intending to do. Philip answered Him, “Two hundred denarii worth of bread is not sufficient for them, for everyone to receive a little.” One of His disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, said to Him, “There is a lad here who has five barley loaves and two fish, but what are these for so many people?” Yeshua said, “Have the people sit down.” Now there was much grass in the place. So the men sat down, in number about five thousand. Yeshua then took the loaves, and having given thanks, He distributed to those who were seated; likewise also of the fish as much as they wanted. When they were filled, He said to His disciples, “Gather up the leftover fragments so that nothing will be lost.” So they gathered them up, and filled twelve baskets with fragments from the five barley loaves which were left over by those who had eaten. Therefore when the people saw the sign which He had performed, they said, “This is truly the Prophet who is to come into the world.”
An Outline of the Five Barley Loaves & Two Fishes in Twelve Episodes:
“TWELVE EPISODES: TWELVE BASKETS FULL”
1. EPISODE ONE. The Twelve Shlichim (sent ones) report on Herod Antipas’ beheading of the prophet Yochanan Ben Zechariah.
2. EPISODE TWO. Messiah orders the Twelve to accompany Him on a boat trip to a secluded place on a mountainside next to Bethsaida.
3. EPISODE THREE. A great crowd composed of people from all the cities of the Galilean region hastily travel by foot and arrive in Bethsaida to meet the Messiah.
4. EPISODE FOUR. When the Messiah sees the people He feels compassion for them and so He begins to teach them about the Kingdom of Adonai from a mountainside.
5. EPISODE FIVE. At the end of the day Messiah’s talmidim propose to send the crowd away to find food and lodging elsewhere but the Messiah says no the crowd does not need to go away and orders the Twelve to feed them.
6. EPISODE SIX. “Pesach was near” so Messiah tests His disciple Philip by asking him what would it cost for them to purchase bread for all the people.
7. EPISODE SEVEN. Philip’s response is that two hundred denarii is not a sufficient amount to purchase enough bread to adequately feed all the people, so Messiah orders the disciples to search throughout the crowd to discover how many loaves of barley bread they can find.
8. EPISODE EIGHT. Andrew reports to Rabbi Yeshua that the Twelve were only able to discover five little barley loaves and two fishes that were the possession of a little boy, so Messiah orders His disciple Andrew to bring to Him the five barley loaves and two fishes that the little boy was willing to supply.
9. EPISODE NINE. The people are organized to sit on the grass on the mountain-side in groups of 100 and groups of 50.
10. EPISODE TEN. Messiah takes the little boy’s offering, looks up to heaven, gives thanks to the Father, miraculously multiplies the offering numerous times and as He does this He has the fragments distributed by the disciples to the crowd so that the supply of food was sufficient to feed everyone to the full.
11. EPISODE ELEVEN. Messiah orders that the leftover fragments of the loaves and fishes be gathered up so that none of it is wasted. When all the leftover pieces of bread and fishes are gathered up there is enough fragments to fill twelve baskets.
12. EPISODE TWELVE. It is reported that there was about 5,000 men in attendance who were eye-witnesses of the miracle (besides women and children). All 5,000 men were fed by the barley loaves and fishes that Messiah received from the offering of the little boy.
