Mount Moriah and a Sacrifice in Thorns

Just learned an amazing thing listening to Joe Amaral's video on 100 Huntley Street. I've spent a few hours pouring over the scriptures checking it out, being a good Berean, and I'm in tears. This God we serve is so incredible. He is always giving us understanding and glimpses into what He's going to do and what His plan is. When Yeshua became the Passover lamb for each one of us, he fulfilled all the requirements of what was prescribe for the animal sacrifice. He was without blemish, a first born, no broken bones, just to name a few details . When Yeshua gave up his life as our atoning sacrifice, a crown of thorns was placed on His head, He was placed on the wood, and sacrificed on Mount Moriah. Mount Moriah is the known as the area where the temple mount is located and is not really mentioned directly in the gospels. I had no idea that it was Mount Moriah area where Yeshua was sacrificed. Now Joe Amaral points out the event back in Genesis when Abraham is tested by our Father, to take his only son to the mount that the Father chooses. He directs Abraham to take Isaac to the mountain named Moriah. It takes him 3 days to get there, and then Abraham and his son take wood and a knife and fire to head up to mountain, just the the two of them. His son inquires where is the LAMB is that is to be offered. Abraham tells him that God will provide for himself the LAMB for the offering. Just as Abraham is about to kill his only son, an angel calls to him to stop. When Abraham lifts his eyes he sees a male ram. This lamb has it's head caught in a thicket and instead of his son, the lamb is killed. Are you starting to see the parallels? A father and son, a sacrifice, a lamb, God's provision sacrificed on wood, a crown of thorns on a lamb that is slain, a sacrifice of a substitute lamb on the mountain named Moriah, seed of Abraham saving his people, covenant fulfillment foreshadowed. Isn't this wonderful, so wonderful it makes me cry with amazement. You are wonderful Father, I love you. Our Father is amazing and tells His story with perfect details, letting us in on what He has done, what He is doing and what He will do.

Mainstream Christian Show Teaches about the Holy Days

This is exciting. For me it is. 100 Huntley Street, a Canadian mainstream Christian television show is hosting Joe Amaral from First Century Foundations. He's teaching about the importance of and Yeshua's fulfillment of the scriptural Holy Days.

I've posted most of the video clips on my youtube channel.

Praise the Father for giving a platform to teach these truths.
