Bible commentary

Discussion for Exodus 23

  • Christ Magnified Glorifying Jesus
    End of day 23 in Bible in a Year Reading. I used to think that God placed a lot of rules/laws on the Hebrew people. Now I look at the laws and codes in just the area I live and realize that humans create far more laws that have little noble or educational purpose. Laws upon laws. God's law clearly defines sin as sin. No preference given. Equal treatment with love as the final objective.

    I beleeue in Yeshua Hamashiach and I beleeue that he is the Risen Christ and that he is the Sonne of the Living God and that he is the Living God. and I loue you all.

    @ Miister Jan, you are exactly right! Easter is derived from Ishtar/ Astaroth/ Astarte: the satanic, pagan false goddess of the satanic seed line. As The Lord commanded, we are to observe The Passover, Pentecost Day and Feast of Tabernacles. Jesus became OUR Passover when He was sacrificed for us. (1 Cor. ch. 5; Luke ch. 22). Halloween, 'Christmas' and Easter all have pagan/ satanic roots.

    Ex.23:2 - "Thou shalt not follow ....." To follow a multitude, whether they are PLANNING on evil - or not - is foolish. Because - you do not KNOW what will happen in a crowd. That's why there are ALWAYS law enforcement at ANY gathering. Christians do not follow the world's people; we PRAY for them.
  • Miister Jan
    We need to move away from Easter which is pagan and embrace Passover now before the Lamb of God returns. Stop the Easter eggs bonnets clothes
    bunnies laying egg instead of baby bunnies and this year Our Father highlighted that the date is also different 2016 Leap year Easter does not match the dates that God outlined in Abib for the Passover covenant with him! Easter vs Passover choose now!
  • Chris K. for verse 21
    A great cross-reference to Joshua 21:44, Josh.5:13, acts 7:45, Heb. 4:8, for Jesus in the kjv.
