This year, as in the past, the Celebration of Easter or Firstfruits will fall on the Sunday after the regular Sabbath following Passover during the Feast of Unleavened Bread. As the symbolic day of the Firstfruits offering of the first or early barley harvest, Easter or Resurrection Sunday signifies the Firstfruits of the First Resurrection, which included Christ and the fortunate saints who rose on the same day that He did. As such, they were the first harvest of souls entering Everlasting Life in the
In honor of what Yahshua did for us on the Cross as our Passover Lamb, I am presenting this section about Passover that was taken from my 665-page book “The Language of God in Humanity.” As you read this section of the book, I hope you will be blessed by it, and will find much joy in your Passover and Easter celebrations this year.

“While they were eating, Jesus (Yahshua) took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, ‘Take it; this is my body.’ Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, and they all drank from it. ‘This is my blood of the Covenant, which is poured out for many,’ he said to them. ‘I tell you the truth, I will not drink again of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it anew in the

“The Language of God in Humanity” By Helena Lehman
This excerpt was taken from the second book in my four-book Language of God Book Series, and it explores the meanings of many rituals and symbols in the Bible that pointed ahead to Christ. It also explores the Bible heroes that prefigured Christ, and prepared the way for His First Advent, as well as the meaning of many of Yahshua’s Parables. Finally, it explores the Signs in the Heavens and the Gospel in the Stars that surrounded His First Advent, and that are tied to the Christ’s Ministry for us. To purchase an autographed copy of my book, please go to the Pillar of Enoch Ministry Bookstore.
Since 2007, when this excerpt was originally shared, I also created a short introduction for another long excerpt from the same book that can be found in the “Free Articles and Downloads” section of the Pillar of Enoch Ministry Web Site at http://pillar-of-enoch.com/essays/. This excerpt surrounds the Christian Celebration of Easter or Resurrection Sunday. Click this title: “The Timing and Heavenly Signs at Christ’s Death and Resurrection” to go directly to the links connecting to the article at my ministry web site. I hope that you will take the time to read it, as it shares some amazing insights into the Star Gospel that is connected to the most likely time for Christ’s death and resurrection.
