PALM SUNDAY'S CONNECTION TO REVERSING THE CURSE AND ENTERING THE PROMISED LAND

Artistic Depiction of Yahshua's Triumphal Entry Into Jerusalem
To reverse something is to negate it or destroy its power. God is doing that in Human History through working His Will in us. He's REVERSING THE DEATH CURSE of Sin and the Law that Adam and Eve and the Israelites brought upon us, and He has done, and is doing this reversal of history through His Son Yahshua, Who created all things by the Father's design, and Who knows the beginning from the end because He is the Beginning and the End! Nothing and no one is more important than knowing Yahshua, because He literally is our only Salvation, which we obtain by His Blood and Grace.

In the heavens, the Star Procyon in Canis Minor is connected to Mount Sinai and represents the Blood Covenant of Failure and the Curse of the Law through Moses, who saddled the Israelites with all kinds of laws and rules for living that they were INCAPABLE of keeping because of their sin natures. God and the Devil and their ministering spirits influence how we think and what we think about and focus on. We choose the Good when we listen to God's voice and choose to follow Yahshua's Love, Mercy and Grace. We choose the Curse when we listen to demons and choose to follow Moses and His burdensome Law, trying to save ourselves through self-directed and self-imposed works or actions that are as meaningless for true redemption as the blood sacrifices that were performed in the Tabernacle and Temple to Yahweh.

The Tabernacle and Temple sacrifices were performed with the blood of bulls and lambs, which were not able to redeem us because they are part of this fallen creation. Only Yahshua's shed blood could do this because He not only never sinned, showing His divine nature, but was the Perfect Image of God Himself, and Yahshua's Word was and is the Word of God. That is why only the shedding of Yahshua's PERFECT, untainted blood could save His Creation. As it says in the Epistle to the Hebrews:
Hebrews 9:12-14 ~ “Not with the blood of goats and calves, but with His own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption. 13 For if the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies for the purifying of the flesh, 14 how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?”
The Sunday before Resurrection Sunday (this year on March 25th, 2018) is Palm Sunday, the beginning of a Holy Week in Christian Circles that is connected to Passover Week (aka the Feast of Unleavened Bread) in Jewish Circles - although the Jews are still loathe to admit this, and that is why the world is in all the trouble that it is in now. On Palm Sunday, we are supposed to remember Yahshua's Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem the week prior to His crucifixion on a Cross representing all Creation via the Four Corners of the Heavens and the Four Corners of the Earth. This is the day when the Jews of Ancient Judea waved palm branches in the air and laid them on the ground before Yahshua as He entered the city riding on a donkey and the foal of a donkey. As He entered the city, the Jews who believed that He was their Messiah shouted “Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord!” (See Matthew 21:9)

The Star Sirius Is Connected To Jerusalem And Bethlehem
Jerusalem and its suburb called Bethlehem are directly connected to the star Sirius in Canis Major, and Sirius A (with its invisible companion star Sirius B) is the brightest star in the heavens for this reason! After all, Yahshua (or Yah Saves!), Who is our Salvation, was born in Bethlehem and died and rose in Jerusalem. These locations are forever tied to our salvation, and that is why the Jews in Israel will praise Yahshua in recognition when He comes into the Holy City Jerusalem as a victorious conquering King, and as the duly recognized Messiah of Israel and the world. When the Jews finally recognize Yahshua as their Messiah, this will Reverse the CURSE that the Jews placed upon themselves when they refused to SEE GOD'S FACE and chose to see Moses instead of Yahweh directly.

Moses wrote the first Five Books of the Bible and the Law of Moses is contained therein, as well as the history of mankind and the Israelites up to their entrance into the Promised Land as conquerors. Although this triumphal moment seemed to be a time of victory for the Israelites, it really wasn't, and Moses might have known this as he looked at the Promised Land of Israel from Mount Nebo, where he died. In fact, I believe that Moses knew that the Israelites had already failed when God asked him to bring all the Israelites up to the top of the mountain so they could see the presence of God there, and the Israelites refused. The Israelites did so because they were afraid, but God hates cowards. That is why Yahshua said (give particular attention to verse 38):
Mark 8:34-38 ~ “When He had called the people to Himself, with His disciples also, He said to them, “Whoever desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. 35 For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it. 36 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? 37 Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? 38 For whoever is ashamed of Me and My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him the Son of Man also will be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father with the holy angels.”
This means that anyone who is afraid of Yahshua and sharing their faith in and love for Him due to the threat of persecution or ridicule will not  be allowed into Yahshua's coming Millennial Kingdom, but will be forced to live outside of it. Because God hates cowards, He cursed the ancient Israelites with the Law, forcing them to try and win their salvation through their WORKS alone, which they could not do, and continually failed to do. That is why Yahshua is the Author of THE NEW COVENANT by His Blood that gives us God's Grace or Unmerited Favor, and breaks us free from the CURSE of the Law.

But Yahshua did not do away with the whole Law. He asks us to keep only two of the Laws in the Old Testament that embodied all of the Moral Laws of God, and He promised to give His Spirit to those of us who love and follow Him and want to keep His Two Great Commandments. When the Holy Spirit takes up residence in our hearts, we hear God's loving voice within our minds, and He writes His Law within our hearts so that we do not have to struggle and fail. Instead, we can obtain Victory in and through Yahshua, Who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. These are the Two Great Commandments that Yahshua asks us all to keep:
Matthew 22:37-40 ~ “Jesus (Yahshua) said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”” NOTE: [a] Deuteronomy 6:5; [b] Leviticus 19:18
Yahshua's Two Commandment are not only tied to the Two Old Testament Commandments noted above, but are directly connected to the Ten Commandments that Yahweh gave to Moses on Mount Sinai. The Ten Commandments were the only Laws that God Himself directly carved into Two Tablets of Stone as Moses watched in awe. These Two Tablets are allegorically connected to the Two Commandments of Yahshua that would come later.

The First through Third Commandments are tied directly to Yahshua's First and Greatest Commandment, which is to love Yahweh our Elohim with our whole heart, soul and mind. The Fourth and Fifth Commandments that command us to keep the Sabbath and honor our father and mother are tied to both of Yahshua Commandments, and the Second Commandment of Yahshua is tied to Commandments Six through Ten. These Ten Commandments were carved into stone to imply that these Ten Laws are everlasting and WILL NEVER PASS AWAY!

Now, looking back at the first time that the Israelites entered the Promised Land, they entered it to temporarily conquer it and follow and keep God's Law there while enjoying the blessings that God gave them for keeping His Commandments. But they failed miserably at keeping the Law. They were therefore conquered and expelled from the Promised Land, and were banished and unable to fully reclaim it until 1948. At that time, a small party of Jews won a major war with their neighboring Muslim enemies and Israel was reborn as a nation in fulfillment of many Old Testament prophecies.

This establishment of the Ancient Kingdom of Israel with King David was the initial step that God took in creating the framework for another triumphal entry into Jerusalem. This future one will occur in the near future, when Yahshua returns as a conquering King riding on a magnificent White Horse along with a huge multitude of saints and angels riding on white horses behind Him. At that time, Yahshua will enter Jerusalem, and when He does the Jews will finally break the Curse that their initial failure cursed the whole world with. They will break the curse when they weep tears of joy and remorse as they greet their glorified King with palm branches and shouts of: “Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord!”

Artistic Depiction of Yahshua's Second Coming - Graphic by Dale Kunkel
The proclamation “Blessed is He who comes in the Name of the Lord!” first appears in the Bible in verse 26 of Psalm 118, and the uncanny thing is that Psalm 118 is prophetically tied to the year 2018! So could 2018 be tied to the Rapture of the Church, which must occur before Yahshua's Second Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem? We can always hope, and my article linked to below gives more than a glimmer of hope that it could be in connection with this coming Passover Week or the Feast of Unleavened Bread, which falls from sunset on March 30th, 2018 to sunset on April 7th, 2018:

HEAVENLY SIGNS AND PROPHECIES TIED
TO THE DEATH OF BILLY GRAHAM AND 
THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH

This article suggests that the Rapture could be this Resurrection Sunday on April 1st, 2018, or sometime after this date in 2018. In the meantime, as we wait and watch together, please remember the connection of Psalm 118 with 2018 with joy. Don't give up hope in the Blessed Hope of the Rapture, because Yahshua truly IS Coming someday soon, and Yahshua commanded us to "Watch!" for His glorious return. I am looking forward to both the Rapture - when Yahshua will act as the Bridegroom coming for His Bride - and also to Yahshua's coming as a conquering king at the Battle of Armageddon!

Adonai Yahweh, Please Let 
The Rapture Be In 2018! 
Amen And Hallelu-Yah!

Keep Looking Up! 
Yahshua Is Coming Again Very Soon!

With Love and Blessings
