"Three days and three nights according to the Spring Feast Days in Leviticus 23:5-8"

Many people have been taught to believe that the Messiah died on Good Friday and rose on Easter Sunday but this is not true. Messiah Himself said that He would be three days and three nights in the tomb. 

Matthew 12:39-40 But Jesus answered and said to them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

You can't fit three days and three nights from Friday to Sunday. 

"Three Days and Three Nights according to Scripture"

In the Hebrew mind any part of day equals a day. With this principle in mind we can understand how twilight would constitute one day and one night combined. 

Exodus 19:10-11 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Go to the people and consecrate them today (1 day) and tomorrow (2 days), and let them wash their clothes. And let them be ready for the third day. For on the third day the Lord will come down upon Mount Sinai in the sight of all the people.

Luke 13:32 And He said to them, “Go, tell that fox, ‘Behold, I cast out demons and perform cures today (1 day) and tomorrow (2 days), and the third day I shall be perfected.’

Messiah had to died on Wednesday the 14th in order to fulfill Leviticus 23:5. 

Leviticus 23:5 On the fourteenth day of the first month at twilight is the Lord’s Passover.

Messiah was placed in the tomb at twilight on the 14th and remained in the tomb 3 days and 3 nights fulfilling the sign of Jonah.

Matthew 12:39-40 But Jesus answered and said to them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

Messiah was placed in the tomb on the 14th at twilight which is now entering into the 15th.  

According to Leviticus 23:5-8 the day following Passover is the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, which according to Leviticus 23:7 is a Sabbath.

Leviticus 23:5-8 On the fourteenth day of the first month at twilight is the Lord’s Passover. And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the Feast of Unleavened Bread to the Lord; seven days you must eat unleavened bread. On the first day you shall have a holy convocation; it shall be a Sabbath so do no customary work on it. But you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord for seven days. The seventh day shall be a holy convocation; you shall do no customary work on it.’”

The day after Passover is a Sabbath but it's not an ordinary Sabbath because it only comes once a year so they call it a high Sabbath. This is not the seventh day Sabbath because they don't call the seventh day Sabbath a high Sabbath because it comes every week.

John 19:31 Therefore, because it was the Preparation Day, that the bodies should not remain on the cross on the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a high day), the Jews asked Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away.

Anytime there is a Sabbath, the day before is a preparation day. A preparation day is a day that is used to get things ready for the coming Sabbath such as cutting your grass, taking out the trash, doing your laundry and so on.

The day after Passover is a Sabbath so Mary couldn't buy the spices to anoint Messiah's body so she had to wait until the high Sabbath had past so she could buy the spices.

Mark 16:1 Now when the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, that they might come and anoint Him.

This is not the seventh day Sabbath because Mary bought the spices, prepared them, and then rested on the seventh day Sabbath according to the fourth commandment.

Luke 23:56 Then they returned and prepared spices and fragrant oils. And they rested on the Sabbath according to the commandment.
Here is the timeline during the week of Messiah's crucifixion:















Wed/Thur at twilight Messiah is placed in tomb = 1st day & night. 

Thurs/Fri at twilight still in tomb = 2nd day & night.

Fri/Sat at twilight Messiah rises from death = 3rd day & night.

Jesus rose from the dead during the first half of twilight Sat/Sun making it the third day. Notice; when Mary came to the tomb it was dark and Jesus was already gone. That's because Jesus rose on the third day, not the first day

John 20:1 Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene went to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb.

Mark 9:31 Jesus taught His disciples and said to them, “The Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of men, and they will kill Him. And after He is killed, He will rise the third day.”

Jesus resurrected at twilight Sat/Sun on the third day as the first fruits.

1 Corinthians 15:20 But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep.

After Messiah resurrected from the tomb late Sabbath as the, First Fruits, He then ascended on Sunday to the Father for a short time to present Himself as the wave offering according to John 20:17 and Leviticus 23:4-11. Mary could not touch Messiah until after He presented Himself before the Father as the wave offering.

John 20:17 Jesus said to her, “Do not touch Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.’”

Leviticus 23:10-11 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘When you come into the land which I give to you, and reap its harvest, then you shall bring a sheaf of the first fruits of your harvest to the priest. He shall wave the sheaf before the Lord, to be accepted on your behalf; on the day after the Sabbath the priest shall wave it.

From this study we can see that the crucifixion on Good Friday and the resurrection on Easter Sunday is false. Good Friday and Easter Sunday don't fit the timeline of events during the week of Jesus' crucifixion. The reason for this is because you need Passover on the 14th (Wed). Then you need the High Sabbath on the 15th (Thurs). Then you need a normal workday where Mary buys the spices (Fri). Then you need the seventh day Sabbath (Sat) after the normal workday. You can't fit all this from Good Friday to Easter Sunday. There is not even three days and three nights between Friday and Sunday. Since Jesus didn't rise from the dead on Easter Sunday there is no reason to call Sunday the Lord's day.

So where did Good Friday and Easter Sunday come from? It came from pagan beliefs and practices that were injected into the Christian faith many years after Jesus and His Apostles.

The Easter or Ishtar symbolism of the Sunday resurrection of the spring fertility cult (Easter, the Anglo-Saxon form of Ishtar), is a pagan system of worship that first penetrated Christianity in the second century. The symbolism stems from the death of Tammuz on Friday and his resurrection on Sunday. This mirrors the grain and new shoot symbolism of the corn harvest which occurred at this time of the year. The 40 days of Lent were picked as one day for each year of his life since he died at age 40. The rest of the traditions of Easter were "Christianized" into the story of the death and resurrection of Yeshua the Messiah. WikiBooks.org



​"The Second Coming according to the Fall Feasts Days in Leviticus 23:23-39"

Leviticus 23:23-39 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work on it; and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord.’” And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: “Also the tenth day of this seventh month shall be the Day of Atonement. It shall be a holy convocation for you; you shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire to the Lord. And you shall do no work on that same day, for it is the Day of Atonement, to make atonement for you before the Lord your God. For any person who is not afflicted in soul on that same day shall be cut off from his people. And any person who does any work on that same day, that person I will destroy from among his people. You shall do no manner of work; it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. It shall be to you a Sabbath of solemn rest, and you shall afflict your souls; on the ninth day of the month at evening, from evening to evening, you shall celebrate your Sabbath.” Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the children of Israel, saying: ‘The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days to the Lord. On the first day there shall be a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work on it. For seven days you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord. On the eighth day you shall have a holy convocation, and you shall offer an offering made by fire to the Lord. It is a sacred assembly, and you shall do no customary work on it. ‘These are the feasts of the Lord which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, to offer an offering made by fire to the Lord, a burnt offering and a grain offering, a sacrifice and drink offerings, everything on its day— besides the Sabbaths of the Lord, besides your gifts, besides all your vows, and besides all your freewill offerings which you give to the Lord. ‘Also on the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you have gathered in the fruit of the land, you shall keep the feast of the Lord for seven days; on the first day there shall be a Sabbath-rest, and on the eighth day a Sabbath-rest.







 Leviticus 23:24-25

Jesus comes for His Bride at the sound of a great trumpet blast and a loud shout. Jesus Himself does not touch the earth at this time. But rather, His people go up to meet with Him in the air.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.

Isaiah 26:19 Together with my dead body they shall arise. Awake and sing, you who dwell in dust; for your dew is like the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.

The Feast of Trumpets is when Jesus comes back for His Bride to bring her to the place that He prepared for her.

John 14:1-3 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.

When Jesus takes His bride this will leave five classes of people still on the earth. The first group of people are those who, no matter how much evidence there is for creation and its Creator, they still reject God. The second group of people are those who heard the gospel and believed it but they believed in vain because they didn't repent and allow it to change them. 

2 Thessalonians 1:6-8 Certainly, it is right for God to give suffering to those who cause you to suffer. It is also right for God to give all of us relief from our suffering. He will do this when the Lord Jesus is revealed, coming from heaven with his mighty angels in a blazing fire. He will take revenge on those who refuse to acknowledge God and on those who refuse to respond to the Gospel about our Lord Jesus.

The third group of people have a belief system but their belief system is based on worshiping things in creation rather than the Creator. They allow their lustful flesh rule their lives rather than God.

Romans 1:16-25 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.” For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

Groups 1, 2 and 3 will be destroyed at the coming of Jesus because they rejected the opportunities they had to believe, be baptized in Jesus' name and be saved. 

​2 Thessalonians 1:6-8 Certainly, it is right for God to give suffering to those who cause you to suffer. It is also right for God to give all of us relief from our suffering. He will do this when the Lord Jesus is revealed, coming from heaven with his mighty angels in a blazing fire. He will take revenge on those who refuse to acknowledge God and on those who refuse to respond to the Gospel about our Lord Jesus.

The fourth group of people are those who believed the Gospel and obeyed it for a time but then went back to the world.

2 Peter 2:20-21 For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and overcome, the latter end is worse for them than the beginning. For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered to them.

Hebrews 6:4-8 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, if they fall away, to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame. For the earth which drinks in the rain that often comes upon it, and bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated, receives blessing from God; but if it bears thorns and briers, it is rejected and near to being cursed, whose end is to be burned.

The fifth group of people will be those who never heard about Jesus or the Gospel.

Romans 10:11-15 For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, who bring glad tidings of good things!”

Groups 4 and 5 will enter into a time on earth called, "The Great Tribulation". It's the time between the Feast of Trumpets and the Day of Atonement. Israel calls this time, "The Days of Awe". During this time those who knew and believed the truth but didn't live according to it and those who never heard the truth will experience some terrible times. The bride of Christ will not be on the earth during this time because they were taken up during the Feast of Trumpets. People who are left behind and know the truth must repent so that can enter into the millennium or be destroyed when Jesus comes again. Those who never heard will enter into the millennium at the Day of Atonement.

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.

Psalm 27:5 For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.

Daniel 12:1 “At that time Michael shall stand up, the great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people;
And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation, even to that time. And at that time your people shall be delivered, every one who is found written in the book.

Jeremiah 30:7 Alas! For that day is great, so that none is like it; and it is the time of Jacob’s trouble, but he shall be saved out of it.

Zephaniah 2:2-3 Before the decree is issued, or the day passes like chaff, before the Lord’s fierce anger comes upon you, before the day of the Lord’s anger comes upon you! Seek the Lord, all you meek of the earth, who have upheld His justice. Seek righteousness, seek humility. It may be that you will be hidden In the day of the Lord’s anger.

Isaiah 26:19-21 Your dead shall live; together with my dead body they shall arise. Awake and sing, you who dwell in dust; for your dew is like the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead. Come, my people, enter your chambers, and shut your doors behind you; Hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment, until the indignation is past. For behold, the Lord comes out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity; The earth will also disclose her blood, and will no more cover her slain.​

There will be some who do repent and get saved during the time of Great Tribulation but they will have to suffer through it and enter into the one thousand year millennium as mortal people.

​Revelation 7:9-17 After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying: “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom, thanksgiving and honor and power and might, be to our God forever and ever. Amen.” Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?” And I said to him, “Sir, you know.” So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them. They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”








​       Leviticus 23:26-28

On the Day of Atonement Jesus comes back with 144,000 of His saints and touches down in Jerusalem on the Mount of Olives.

Revelation 14:1-5 Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads. And I heard a voice from heaven, like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of loud thunder. And I heard the sound of harpists playing their harps. They sang as it were a new song before the throne, before the four living creatures, and the elders; and no one could learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousand who were redeemed from the earth. These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they are virgins. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from among men, being first fruits to God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no deceit, for they are without fault before the throne of God.

Zechariah 14:3-5 Then the Lord will go forth and fight against those nations, as He fights in the day of battle. And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, from east to west, making a very large valley; falf of the mountain shall move toward the north And half of it toward the south. Then you shall flee through My mountain valley, for the mountain valley shall reach to Azal. Yes, you shall flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Thus the Lord my God will come, and all the saints with You.

Jesus comes with 144,000 to sit as Judge and King and to establish His Law and His earthly kingdom. 

1 Thessalonians 3:13 May he, as a result, make your hearts strong, blameless, and holy as you stand before God our Father when our Lord Jesus comes again with all his holy ones. Amen.

​Psalm 96:13 For He is coming, for He is coming to judge the earth. He shall judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with His truth.

Matthew 16:27 For the Son of Man will come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and then He will reward each according to his works.

Matthew 25:31-32 “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats.

Every eye will see Him coming and He actually steps down upon the earth on the Mount of Olives. 

Revelation 1:7 Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen.​

​During the Day of Atonement Jesus will judge those who came out of the Great Tribulation and they will enter the one thousand year millennium. Some will not enter in, but rather, they will be destroyed at Jesus' coming.

​Revelation 7:9-17 After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” All the angels stood around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures, and fell on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, saying: “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom, thanksgiving and honor and power and might, be to our God forever and ever. Amen.” Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?” And I said to him, “Sir, you know.” So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them. They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”







​     Leviticus 23:33-36

The Feast of Tabernacles is when Jesus and the 144,000 rule and reign on the earth for one thousand years.

Revelation 20:4-6 I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.

Revelation 20:5-6 But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.

Isaiah 2:1-4 The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it. Many people shall come and say, “Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; he will teach us His ways, and we shall walk in His paths.” For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. He shall judge between the nations, and rebuke many people; they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.

Micah 4:1-4 Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and peoples shall flow to it. Many nations shall come and say, “Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, and we shall walk in His paths.” For out of Zion the law shall go forth, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. He shall judge between many peoples, and rebuke strong nations afar off; They shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore. But everyone shall sit under his vine and under his fig tree, and no one shall make them afraid; for the mouth of the Lord of hosts has spoken.
​     
After the one thousand years there will be a second resurrection and a final judgement. 

Revelation 20:7-10 Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea. They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them. The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.

Revelation 20:11-14 Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.​

Nehemiah 8:17-18 So the whole assembly of those who had returned from the captivity made booths and sat under the booths; for since the days of Joshua the son of Nun until that day the children of Israel had not done so. And there was very great gladness. Also day by day, from the first day until the last day, he read from the Book of the Law of God. And they kept the feast seven days; and on the eighth day there was a sacred assembly, according to the prescribed manner.






Leviticus 23:36

Once the final judgement is completed after the one thousand years the holy city comes down on a renewed earth. 

Revelation 21:1-5 Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”

Jesus turns everything over to His Father.

1 Corinthians 15:24-28 Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power. For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet. The last enemy that will be destroyed is death. For “He has put all things under His feet.” But when He says “all things are put under Him,” it is evident that He who put all things under Him is excepted. Now when all things are made subject to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subject to Him who put all things under Him, that God may be all in all.



"Water Baptism"

Water baptism is the means by which God has given us to express our faith. 

Acts 8:35-39 Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning at this Scripture, preached Jesus to him. Now as they went down the road, they came to some water. And the eunuch said, “See, here is water. What hinders me from being baptized?” Then Philip said, “If you believe with all your heart, you may.” And he answered and said, “I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.” So he commanded the chariot to stand still. And both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water, and he baptized him. Now when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught Philip away, so that the eunuch saw him no more; and he went on his way rejoicing.

God has given two groups of people the command to baptize, those who are being baptized and those who are performing the baptism. Everyone fits into one of these two categories.

Matthew 28:19-20 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nationsbaptizing them in my name, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

You might be thinking in your mind that Matthew 28:19 in your Bible should say baptize in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. First of all the words, Father, Son and Holy Spirit are not names, they are titles. Also, nowhere in the Bible are to told to do anything in the name of the Spirit. This triune formula is not found in the original words of Jesus. They were added years later to help support a trinity doctrine. 

The Catholic Encyclopedia, II, page 263:
"The baptismal formula was changed from the name of Jesus Christ to the words Father, Son, and Holy Spirit by the Catholic Church in the second century."

The Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics:
As to Matthew 28:19, it says: "It is the central piece of evidence for the traditional (Trinitarian) view. If it were undisputed, this would, of course, be decisive, but its trustworthiness is impugned on grounds of textual criticism, literary criticism and historical criticism."

The same Encyclopedia further states that: "The obvious explanation of the silence of the New Testament on the triune name, and the use of another (JESUS NAME) formula in Acts and Paul, is that this other formula was the earlier, and the triune formula is a later addition."

Edmund Schlink, The Doctrine of Baptism, page 28:
"The baptismal command in its Matthew 28:19 form can not be the historical origin of Christian baptism. At the very least, it must be assumed that the text has been transmitted in a form expanded by the [Catholic] church."

The Tyndale New Testament Commentaries, I, 275:
"It is often affirmed that the words in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost are not the ipsissima verba [exact words] of Jesus, but...a later liturgical addition."

James Moffett's New Testament Translation:
In a footnote on page 64 about Matthew 28:19 he makes this statement: "It may be that this (Trinitarian) formula, so far as the fullness of its expression is concerned, is a reflection of the (Catholic) liturgical usage established later in the primitive (Catholic) community, It will be remembered that Acts speaks of baptizing "in the name of Jesus, cf. Acts 1:5"

"200 year old ​book on baptism"

















All throughout the New Testament we are commanded to baptize in the name of Jesus Christ, not a triune baptism.

Acts 2:38 Peter replied, “Each of you must repent of your sins and turn to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Acts 10:48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.

At one point there was even an issue as to how someone was baptized. If there was a triune baptism this is where it would have been done, but it wasn't. Listen.

Acts 19:1-5 And it happened, while Apollos was at Corinth, that Paul, having passed through the upper regions, came to Ephesus. And finding some disciples he said to them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” So they said to him, “We have not so much as heard whether there is a Holy Spirit.” And he said to them, “Into what then were you baptized?” So they said, “Into John’s baptism.” Then Paul said, “John indeed baptized with a baptism of repentance, saying to the people that they should believe on Him who would come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus." When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.

What does water baptism have to do in the salvation process?

Water baptism gives you the opportunity to express your faith through obedience as you call out to God to cleanse your conscience of all sin.

1 Peter 3:20-21 They are like those who disobeyed long ago in the days of Noah when God waited patiently while Noah built the ark. In this ark a few people, eight in all, were saved by water. Baptism, which is like that water, now saves you. Baptism doesn’t save by removing dirt from the body. Rather, baptism is a request to God for a clear conscience. It saves you through Jesus Christ, who came back from death to life.

Acts 2:38 Peter replied, “Each of you must repent of your sins and turn to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Salvation is when a person is regenerated by the Spirit of God. This can only be done by the name of Jesus Christ.

Titus 3:4-6 But when the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared, not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior,

Acts 4:12 There is no way to be saved from the punishment of sin through anyone else. For there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we can be saved.

We are saved by grace, through faith. Water baptism is the means by which God has given us the opportunity to express our faith. We call out to God, through water baptism, to cleanse our conscience from sin and save us.

1 Peter 3:20-21 They are like those who disobeyed long ago in the days of Noah when God waited patiently while Noah built the ark. In this ark a few people, eight in all, were saved by water. Baptism, which is like that water, now saves you. Baptism doesn’t save by removing dirt from the body. Rather, baptism is a request to God for a clear conscience. It saves you through Jesus Christ, who came back from death to life.

If we say we have faith but we refuse water baptism can our faith save us?

James 2:14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?

James 2:22 You see, his faith and his actions worked togetherHis actions made his faith complete.

Acts 22:16 And now why are you waiting? Arise and be baptized, 
and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord.




"Clean and Unclean"

When you read your Bible you will find the words, clean and unclean. God uses these two words to define something that is spiritually or physically unacceptable. If something is considered, clean, by God then it's acceptable to Him and good for you.

This seems like a pretty simple rule of thought but there is confusion when it comes to understanding the word, unclean.

There are two words in the original language that is used for the word, unclean. These words are, koinos and akathartos. Both these word are translated as, unclean, in the Bible but they are two different types of unclean. Peter actually uses both akathartos and koinos in the same sentence.

Acts 11:8 But Peter said, ‘Not so, Lord! For nothing common (koinos) or unclean (akathartos) has at any time entered my mouth.

The word, akathartos, is a word that defines something the is unclean because it was created unclean such as a pig. An akathartos thing can never become a clean thing but a koinios thing can become a clean thing.

Why?

Because a koinios thing is unclean because of the conscience of the person and not because of a commandment of God.

For example, a cow is a clean animal but if the cow was sacrificed to an idol it becomes unclean for some people because of the conscience. Some people believe they should not eat something that was sacrificed to an idol but God says it's okay to eat it because an idol is nothing. But to the conscience of the weaker person that meat is unclean (koinios).

1 Corinthians 8:1-13 Next is your question about eating food that has been sacrificed to idols. On this question everyone feels that only his answer is the right one! But although being a “know-it-all” makes us feel important, what is really needed to build the church is love. If anyone thinks he knows all the answers, he is just showing his ignorance. But the person who truly loves God is the one who is open to God’s knowledge. So now, what about it? Should we eat meat that has been sacrificed to idols? Well, we all know that an idol is not really a god, and that there is only one God, and no other. According to some people, there are a great many gods, both in heaven and on earth. But we know that there is only one God, the Father, who created all things and made us to be his own; and one Lord Jesus Christ, who made everything and gives us life.However, some Christians don’t realize this. All their lives they have been used to thinking of idols as alive, and have believed that food offered to the idols is really being offered to actual gods. So when they eat such food it bothers them and hurts their tender consciences. Just remember that God doesn’t care whether we eat it or not. We are no worse off if we don’t eat it, and no better off if we do. But be careful not to use your freedom to eat it, lest you cause some Christian brother to sin whose conscience is weaker than yours. You see, this is what may happen: Someone who thinks it is wrong to eat this food will see you eating at a temple restaurant, for you know there is no harm in it. Then he will become bold enough to do it too, although all the time he still feels it is wrong. So because you “know it is all right to do it,” you will be responsible for causing great spiritual damage to a brother with a tender conscience for whom Christ died. And it is a sin against Christ to sin against your brother by encouraging him to do something he thinks is wrong. So if eating meat offered to idols is going to make my brother sin, I’ll not eat any of it as long as I live because I don’t want to do this to him.

If the above animal was a pig it would be considered unclean (akathartos) no matter what the person's conscience believed.

Job 14:4 Who can make clean what is unclean? No one!

A cow is clean but it can become unclean (koinios) to a person if it was sacrificed to an idol. A pig is unclean (akathartos) by it's created nature and can never become clean.

Let me give you another example that is found in Romans 14.

Romans 14:1- 23 Give a warm welcome to any brother who wants to join you, even though his faith is weak. Don’t criticize him for having different opinions from yours about what is right and wrong. For instance, don’t argue with him about whether or not to eat meat that has been offered to idols. You may believe there is no harm in this, but the faith of others is weaker; they think it is wrong and will go without any meat at all and eat vegetables rather than eat that kind of meat. Those who think it is all right to eat such meat must not look down on those who won’t. And if you are one of those who won’t, don’t find fault with those who do. For God has accepted them to be his children. They are God’s servants, not yours. They are responsible to him, not to you. Let him tell them whether they are right or wrong. And God is able to make them do as they should. One person considers some days to be more sacred than others, while another person considers all days to be the same. Each person must have their own convictions. Someone who thinks that a day is sacred, thinks that way for the Lord. Those who eat, eat for the Lord, because they thank God. And those who don’t eat, don’t eat for the Lord, and they thank the Lord too. We don’t live for ourselves and we don’t die for ourselves. If we live, we live for the Lord, and if we die, we die for the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we belong to God. This is why Christ died and lived: so that he might be Lord of both the dead and the living. But why do you judge your brother or sister? Or why do you look down on your brother or sister? We all will stand in front of the judgment seat of God. Because it is written, As I live, says the Lord, every knee will bow to me, and every tongue will give praise to God. So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to God. So stop judging each other. Instead, this is what you should decide: never put a stumbling block or obstacle in the way of your brother or sister. I know and I’m convinced in the Lord Jesus that nothing is unclean in itself. But if someone thinks something is unclean to eat, it becomes unclean for that person. If your brother or sister is upset by your food, you are no longer walking in love. Don’t let your food destroy someone for whom Christ died. And don’t let something you consider to be good be criticized as wrong. God’s kingdom isn’t about eating food and drinking but about righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. Whoever serves Christ this way pleases God and gets human approval. So let’s strive for the things that bring peace and the things that build each other up. Don’t destroy what God has done because of food. All food is acceptable, but it’s a bad thing if it trips someone else. It’s a good thing not to eat meat or drink wine or to do anything that trips your brother or sister. Keep the belief that you have to yourself—it’s between you and God. People are blessed who don’t convict themselves by the things they approve. But those who have doubts are convicted if they go ahead and eat, because they aren’t acting on the basis of faith. Everything that isn’t based on faith is sin.

Notice the statement in the above verse: "I’m convinced in the Lord Jesus that nothing is unclean in itself. But if someone thinks something is unclean to eat, it becomes unclean for that person."

That word, unclean, in the above verse is the word, koinios, because this whole chapter is about the opinions of men and not offending a weaker brother's conscience. It's not about violating a direct commandment of God. God has set apart animals in two categories by their created nature as being clean or unclean.

Genesis 7:1-3 Then the Lord said to Noah, “Come into the ark, you and all your household, because I have seen that you are righteous before Me in this generation. You shall take with you seven each of every clean animal, a male and his femaletwo each of animals that are unclean, a male and his female; also seven each of birds of the air, male and female, to keep the species alive on the face of all the earth.

These unclean animals in Noah's time were unclean because of the the way they were created. They are scavengers. They clean the earth of waste such as dead carcasses, garbage and disease. Noah didn't eat unclean animals because they were unclean and we know this because there was only one male and one female of the unclean. If Noah ate one of them, that breed of animal would cease to exist at that point. When the Bible calls something, food, it means it's clean. Unclean animal is not in the food category. Let me give you an example: 

Matthew 7:9-10 What man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stoneOr if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent?

In the above verse the son was hungry and wanted something to eat. God compares something that is food with something that is not food. A rock is not food neither is a snake because a snake is an unclean animal so it's not in the food category, even though some people do eat snakes. 

There are certain animals that God calls, clean, and are acceptable to be used a food. They are sanctified or set apart by the word of God. In other words, God's word tells us which ones are to be called, food.

1 Timothy 4:1-5 Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron, forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from foods which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth. For every creature of God is good, and nothing is to be refused if it is received with thanksgiving; for it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.

Some people wrongly use the above verse to say that God created animals such as pigs to be eaten as food. But I want you to really look at the above verse. It's talking about deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons. Has God said it's wrong to get married? NO! Has God said it's wrong to eat animals that He created to be eaten? NO! These are doctrines of demons. The above verse says the animals that God gave us to eat as food are sanctified or defined by the word of God. Where are the animals defined as food by God in the word of God? You find them in Leviticus chapter 11. So when you read in the above verse how we should "receive it with thanksgiving; for it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer". They are sanctified by the word of God in Leviticus chapter 11. The words in Leviticus chapter 11 are not the words of deceiving spirits or doctrines of demons. 

Leviticus 11:46-47 "This is the law of the animals and the birds and every living creature that moves in the waters, and of every creature that creeps on the earth, to distinguish between the unclean and the clean, and between the animal that may be eaten and the animal that may not be eaten.”

Listen to what Peter says.

1 Peter 1:15-16 He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.”

When Peter says, "It is written" he is referring to an Old Testament principle carried over to the New Testament. So let's go back to the Old Testament verse that Peter was referring to here to see one aspect of what being holy means.

Leviticus 11:44 I am the Lord your God; consecrate yourselves and be holy, because I am holy. Do not make yourselves unclean by any creature that moves along the ground.

So you see, within the New Testament we find two meanings for the word unclean. One meaning refers to something unclean (Koinios) to a weak person's conscience and not because of a commandment of God and the other unclean (akathartos) is unclean because it was created unclean. 

2 Corinthians 6:17 “Therefore, come out from their midst and be separate,” says the Lord. “And do not touch what is unclean (akathartos); And I will welcome you.

Listen to what happens when the Lord comes to establish the new heavens and the new earth. 

Matthew 13:40-42 Therefore as the tares are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of this age. The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Now let's take a look at this same event in Isaiah, which speaks of the coming of Jesus to judge the world in righteousness. 

Isaiah 66:15-17 For behold, the Lord will come with fire and with His chariots, like a whirlwind, to render His anger with fury, and His rebuke with flames of fire. For by fire and by His sword the Lord will judge all flesh; and the slain of the Lord shall be many. “Those who sanctify themselves and purify themselves, to go to the gardens after an idol in the midst, eating swine’s flesh and the abomination and the mouse, shall be consumed together,” says the Lord.

1 Corinthians 3:16-18 Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are. Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise.

Leviticus 11:44 I am the Lord your God; consecrate yourselves and be holy, because I am holyDo not make yourselves unclean by any creature that moves along the ground.

Ephesians 5:5 For this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God.

Some people believe that Jesus declared all animals clean in Mark 7:19 but the words "In saying this, Jesus declared all foods clean" were added to the text and are not found in the original language. Let's read the context of Mark 7 and you will see that the whole discussion was not about unclean animals or a commandment of God, but rather, it was about a man-made religious tradition.

Mark 7:1-3 Then the Pharisees and some of the scribes came together to Him, having come from Jerusalem. Now when they saw some of His disciples eat bread with defiled, that is, with unwashed hands, they found fault. For the Pharisees and all the Jews do not eat unless they wash their hands in a special way, holding the tradition of the elders.

Now watch how Jesus explains in the New International Version (NIV) translation.

Mark 7:17-20 After he had left the crowd and entered the house, his disciples asked him about this parable. “Are you so dull?” he asked. “Don’t you see that nothing that enters a person from the outside can defile them? For it doesn’t go into their heart but into their stomach, and then out of the body.” (In saying this, Jesus declared all foods clean.) He went on: “What comes out of a person is what defiles them.

Now watch the NJKV version.

Mark 7:17-20 When He had entered a house away from the crowd, His disciples asked Him concerning the parable. So He said to them, “Are you thus without understanding also? Do you not perceive that whatever enters a man from outside cannot defile him, because it does not enter his heart but his stomach, and is eliminated, thus purifying all foods?” And He said, “What comes out of a man, that defiles a man.

The digestives system will purify food that is eaten with unwashed hands but it won't make an unclean animal clean. Remember, food is defined by God, a pig is not food according to Leviticus 11:44 and Isaiah 66:17. What Jesus was saying is that if you eat with unwashed hands the food that you eat will be purified by the digestive system and come out and the person will be unaffected by it but words that comes out of the mouth will affect the person. Jesus was not teaching that we can now eat unclean animals. An akathartos animal can never become a clean animal nor is it defined by God as being food.

Mark 7:20 "Eating with unwashed hands does not defile a man.”

Eating with unwashed hands does not defile a man but eating what God says not to eat will.

Acts 15:20 but that we write to them to abstain from things polluted by idols, from sexual immorality, from things strangled, and from blood.

Remember, we are grafted into Israel so all the laws that were given to Israel belong to us too. Remember, we, as grafted in Gentiles, should be making Israel jealous.

Unclean animals are unclean because they are God's scavengers. 
They clean the earth of waste such as dead carcasses, garbage and disease.

















"Understanding the Two Creations"

Understanding the two creations is very important because we can become confused when we start equating Jesus as the Creator in Genesis. Notice how Jesus Himself says that it was His Father who created Adam and Eve, not Himself.

Matthew 19:4 And Jesus answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He (the Father) who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female".

Mark 10:5-6 And Jesus answered and said to them, “Because of the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept. But from the beginning of the creation, God (the Father) ‘made them male and female.’

"Who was the "Us" in Genesis"

The Father sits on His throne in the heavens and all around His throne are angelic creatures.

1 Kings 22:19 Then Micaiah said, “Therefore hear the word of the Lord: I saw the Lord sitting on His throne, and all the host of heaven standing by, on His right hand and on His left.

Isaiah 6:1-3 In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple. Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And one cried to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory!”

Isaiah saw what the throne room of God in heaven looked like. Surrounding the Father are His mighty Angels. When the Father speaks, He includes His helpers, His ministers of fire, which are His angels. Now notice carefully how when the Father asks, "Who shall I send" He includes the angels in His question.

Isaiah 6:8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

Now let's bring this (inclusion) principle back to Genesis. When God created in Genesis He was still surrounded by His angels and they shouted for joy when the Father created everything.

Job 38:4-7 “Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell me, if you know so much. Who determined its dimensions and stretched out the surveying line? What supports its foundations, and who laid its cornerstone as the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy?

When the Father said, "Let us make man in our image" He was including His angels just like He did in Isaiah. But notice how when the Father actually created man He did the work Himself.

Genesis 1:26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness".

Genesis 1:27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

The Father created the world to come through Jesus, not the Genesis creation.

Hebrews 1:1-2 Adonai, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world to come.

In times past Adonia did not speak to us through His Son. He spoke to us in many different ways by way of His Spirit. 

1 Peter 1:10-11 Of this salvation the prophets have inquired and searched carefully, who prophesied of the grace that would come to you, searching what, or what manner of time, the Spirit of Christ who was in them was indicating when He testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ and the glories that would follow.

It's not until these last days that He is speaking to us through His Son, the man Yeshua/Jesus.

1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus.

Some will say that Hebrews 1:2 says that Adonia created the world in Genesis through Yeshua so that means Yeshua exited before Genesis. This is a misinterpretation of what Hebrews 1:2 is saying. Adnoai created the world to come through Yeshua, not the world that now is. The world to come is the Kingdom of God. Listen to how Hebrews 2:5 confirms which world is being referred to in Hebrews 1:2.

Hebrews 2:5 For He has not put the world to come, of which we speak, in subjection to angels.

The kingdom of God has to do with principalities, powers, thrones and the authority of Church (the body of Christ). Notice the kingdom language in Colossians. The new creation that God created through Jesus has to do with things IN heaven and ON earth. It doesn't say Jesus created THE heaven and THE earth. This is not Genesis language relating to creating THE heaven and THE earth, the birds, the trees, the animals. Colossians is kingdom language.

Colossians 1:15-18 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. He is also head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He Himself will come to have first place in everything.

This new creation is the kingdom of God's Son.

Colossians 1:13 For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son.

The resurrection of Jesus is the beginning of Adonia's new creation, which is identified all throughout the New Testament as the world to come or the Kingdom of God. Yeshua is the beginning of this new creation. He is the head of all things in His kingdom. 

Luke 23:42 Then he said to Jesus, “Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.”

Luke 1:31-33 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.”

He is the firstborn from the dead as it relates to the new creation, the kingdom of God.

Revelation 3:14 “And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write, ‘These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God.

Adonai created a new man through the birth, life and death of Yeshua. This new man is the beginning of Adonia's new creation, the Kingdom of God in the world to come.

Ephesians 4:24 that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.

The new man that we put on is Christ.

Galatians 3:26-27 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

Adonai did not speak through Yeshua in the Old Testament neither did He creation Genesis through Jesus. He made the new creation through Jesus and He is speaking through Him in these last days through Whom He created the world to come, the Kingdom of God.

Luke 18:29-30 So He said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or parents or brothers or wife or children, for the sake of the kingdom of God, who shall not receive many times more in this present time, and in the world to come eternal life.”

Matthew 12:32 Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man, it will be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it will not be forgiven him, either in this world or in the world to come.

The final work of the new creation will be glorious. It's what Peter spoke about and was looking forward to.

2 Peter 3:13 Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.

In the new heavens and earth there will be no more death, pain or sorrow. All these things became part of the first creation because of sin but God will do away with them all in the new creation.

Revelation 21:3-5 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”
