You are very lucky if GOOD works flow through you naturally, without effort on your part. Most of us have a  real battle on our hands getting rid of bad old sinful habits that keep coming up even with God's Holy Spirit to help us.  And Paul had a problem doing what he needed to do for God Rom 7v14, 15.  Are you sure you are doing God's Will naturally/easily  ? 

No luck involved, if you believe in luck.......???

All I do when a temptation is presented to me is listen to the Holy Spirit's voice in my heart, He will give me the correct verse to overcome the temptation:

But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.  Jer 31:33

THAT'S the difference between trying to keep the Old Covenant which is physical and the New Covenant which is Spiritual, keeping the Old Covenant depends on you  Exo 19:8, keeping the New Covenant depends on the Holy Spirit and not on me, ...He gives me the verse to speak to overcome the temptation and I repeat it, ....JUST like Jesus showed us, ...He showed us man can overcome the temptations the devil throws at us, ...evidently from what you have written you don't understand or practice/apply it in your life, ...maybe you have never been taught this?

Like all Believers, I experience a war going on inside of me.Sometimes the old sinful nature wins and sometimes the New Nature wins.Some of these battles are very difficult others are not.Sometimes when not at war, good things come out from within me that previously did not exist.That is the Holy Spirit  working through me .That is easy , I had nothing to do with it.My life has ups-and- downs but thanks to God’s Holy Spirit , the overall trend is consistently up.God is finishing the job HE started.I may lose a battle or two in this Spiritual War But , thanks be to God , I WILL WIN the war.

How sad, five pages of total heresy from posters who claim the name of Jesus, ...with just a couple posts of the TRUTH!!!

Here's the TRUTH!

The institution of the Passover by GOD and not the wisdom of some man or woman:

The LORD said to Moses and Aaron in Egypt, This month will be the very first month of the year for you.   Tell the whole community of Israel: On the tenth day of this month each man must take a lamb or a young goat for his family-one animal per household. Your animal must be a one-year-old male that has no defects  Exo 12:1-3, 5

Take care of it until the fourteenth day of this month. "Then at dusk, all the assembled people from the community of Israel must slaughter their animals.  They must take some of the blood and put it on the sides and tops of the door frames of the houses where they will eat the animals. Exo 12:6, 7

Now let's plug His command to the Jews into what He wrote to us in the New Testament:

Six days before Passover, Jesus arrived in Bethany.  John 12:1

Six days, that would be 1. Friday, 2. Saturday the Sabbath, 3. Sunday the FIRST day of the week, 4. Monday, 5. Tuesday, 6. Wednesday...

The Triumphal of Jesus entry into Jerusalem, Sunday the third day and the FIRST day of the week:

When they came near Jerusalem and had reached Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples ahead of him.  He said to them, "Go into the village ahead of you. You will find a donkey tied there and a colt with it. Untie them, and bring them to me. If anyone says anything to you, tell him that the Lord needs them. That person will send them at once." This happened so that what the prophet had said came true:  "Tell the people of Zion, 'Your king is coming to you. He's gentle, riding on a donkey, on a colt, a young pack animal.'"  The disciples did as Jesus had directed them.  They brought the donkey and the colt and put their coats on them for Jesus to sit on.  Most of the people spread their coats on the road. Others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road.  The crowd that went ahead of him and that followed him was shouting, "Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest heaven!"   Matt 21: 1-9

Jesus left Jerusalem that day, it's still Sunday:

He left them and went out of the city to Bethany and spent the night there.  Matt 21:17

Monday the fourth day:

In the morning, as Jesus returned to the city,he became hungry.  When he saw a fig tree by the road, he went up to the tree and found nothing on it but leaves. He said to the tree, "May fruit never grow on you again!" At once the fig tree dried up.    Matt 21:18, 19

The next day, when they left Bethany,  Jesus became hungry. In the distance he saw a fig tree with leaves. He went to see if he could find any figs on it. When he came to it, he found nothing but leaves because it wasn't the season for figs. Then he said to the tree, "No one will ever eat fruit from you again!" His disciples heard this. Mark 11:12-14

Jesus leaves Jerusalem:

And when even was come, he went out of the city.  Mark 11:19

Tuesday the fifth day:

And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.  And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursed is withered away.  Mark 11:20, 21

Wednesday the sixth day, ...the tenth day of the week exactly as God had commanded Moses: 

Now the first day of the feast of unleavened bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the Passover?  And he said, Go into the city to such a man, and say unto him, The Master saith, My time is at hand; I will keep the Passover at thy house with my disciples.  And the disciples did as Jesus had appointed them; and they made ready the Passover.   Now when the even was come, he sat down with the twelve.  Matt 26:17-20

And the first day of unleavened bread, when they killed the Passover, his disciples said unto him, Where wilt thou that we go and prepare that thou may eat the Passover?   And he sent forth two of his disciples, and saith unto them, Go ye into the city, and there shall meet you a man bearing a pitcher of water: follow him.  And wheresoever he shall go in, say ye to the goodman of the house, The Master saith, Where is the guest chamber, where I shall eat the Passover with my disciples?   And he will shew you a large upper room furnished and prepared: there make ready for us.  And his disciples went forth, and came into the city, and found as he had said unto them: and they made ready the Passover. And in the evening he came with the twelve.    Mark 14: 12-17

So as the OP has stated, the Holy Spirit has shown us the Passover was the evening of Wednesday, ...Jewish time, that is, Wednesday started when three stars were visible in the night sky.

 

Now the rest of the story, ...Wednesday night:

And supper (Passover) being ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon's son, to betray him;  John 13:2

When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, into the which he entered, and his disciples.  John 18:1

Judas then, having received a band of men and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, came with lanterns and torches and weapons. Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye?  They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them.  John 18:3-5

Then the band and the captain and officers of the Jews took Jesus, and bound him, 
And led him away to Annas first...
  John 18:12, 13 

Wednesday morning:

And as soon as it was day, the elders of the people and the chief priests and the scribes came together, and led him into their council,  Luke 22:66

Then led they Jesus from Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might eat the Passover.  Pilate then went out unto them, and said, What accusation bring ye against this man?   John 18:28,29

Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him.  John 19:1

The Crucifixion and death Of our Lord Jesus Christ, ...Wednesday afternoon:

And it was about the sixth hour (noon), and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth  hour (3 PM).  And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst.  And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost (died). Luke 23:44-46

Friday the seventh day of the week:

 It was Friday, and the day of worship was just beginning. Luke 23:50-54

The Jewish day Saturday ended when three stars were visible in the sky and then Sunday began:

After the day of worship (Sabbath), as the sun rose Sunday morning, Mary from Magdala and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.  Matt 28:1

And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene and Mary, the mother of James and Salome, had bought sweet spices so that they might come and anoint Him.  And very early in the morning, the first day of the week, they came upon the tomb, the sun having risen.   Mark 16:1, 2

Very early on Sunday morning the women went to the tomb. They were carrying the spices that they had prepared.   They found that the stone had been rolled away from the tomb. When they went in, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.  Luke 24:1-3

The Holy Spirit has made sure the Passover, Jesus celebration of it, His betrayal and arrest, His interrogation by the High Priest, the Sanhedrin and the the Roman Governor Pilot, who ALL found NO DEFECT in Him (Exo 12:5) has been accurately recorded for us!

The Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ is the hinge pin on which our Salvation is assured, God, the Son, the Word became flesh and lived among us, He was Crucified for the sins of the world, and He rose again again the third day which means His Father, God, approved and was satisfied with His sacrifice of His Son, ...between the Incarnation of the God-Man Jesus Christ, His willingly taking upon Himself our sins and submitting to the Cup of the Wrath of God, dying and then rising again the third day, ...His Resurrection is the hinge PIN between the two events, without His Resurrection, that is, just taking upon Himself our sins is of no value to us, we would still be dead in our trespasses and sin, again, very important to understand and receive, the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ is the guarantee of our Salvation!   

And, brothers, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you have received, and in which you stand; by which you also are being kept safe, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received, that Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures;   1 Cor 15:1-4

There's the TRUTH according to the writings of the Holy Spirit, ...I'm not politically correct, I stand on the TRUTH and IT has guided, directed, comforted, encouraged, given me hope, kept me safe and is sanctifying me, conforming me into the image of my blessed Lord for these 33 years!

As for me, the Passover is and exchange of Cups, my Lord Jesus Christ took the Cup of God's wrath that I deserved:

Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me. Yet not My will, but Yours be done. Luke 22:42

and in exchange He gave me:

For I received from the Lord what I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which he was betrayed took bread;  And giving thanks, He broke it and said, "Take, eat; this is My body, which is broken for you; this do in remembrance of Me." In the same way He took the cup also, after supping, saying, "This cup is the New Covenant in My blood; as often as you drink it, do this in remembrance of Me." For "as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you show" the Lord's death until He shall come. 1 Cor 11:23-26

For me, on Sunday, April 21, 2019 I will celebrate the Resurrection of my Lord and King Jesus Christ in remembrance of what HE has done for me personally, participating in the Communion Service with my true bothers and sisters IN Christ, family members of/in His TRUE Church wherever they may be scattered on this planet! 

The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:  The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:  the LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace. 

Happy (blessed) Easter!

 

 

So let the naysayers begin, those that don't believe The Word of God,  .........those that the Holy Spirit wrote about through Peter:

But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who secretly will bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing on themselves swift destruction.  2 Pet 2:1

... And as he said in all his letters, which had to do with these things; in which are some hard sayings, so that, like the rest of the holy Writings, they are twisted by those who are uncertain and without knowledge, to the destruction of their souls. 2 Pet 3:16

 

But let God be true, and every man a liar;  Rom 3:4

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hi PT, I hope we can discuss this very long post without calling each other liars or false teachers....we are after all only giving our understanding, which is yet imperfect.

But what I found missing from your rendering (biblical as it was) was the true crux of the matter....on which day and what time  Yashua was  entombed, nor any mention of His own prediction, nor His actual PASSOVER instructions we read in 1Cor 11 and John 13. THESE are  what concern us in this discussion and are for us in the NT.....not the eating of the Seder meal.

You might like to correct what you said about FRIDAY being the worship day for the Jews Lk 23v50-54 in your post.....I'm sure it was just a mistake and not your genuine belief.

So you will celebrate Yashua's resurrection on sunday.....that is your freedom and privilege to do, but be aware you missed out all the important key-points that can give you the truth. I can go into detail if you like but it would be another loooong post that most would not read anyway.

Now this is a post i can identify with, up's and down's struggling with sin.....but as you say the overall trend becomes more up according to God's HS working in and for us.The Lord be praised !!!

You are right, Luck does not come into our Belief and I know that.....it was just a figure of expression I should not have used.

Are you classing the 10 Commandments as OC ? 

I know how we can overcome sin by the Power of God's Spirit, it's just that I am not perfect yet in always responding to it.

Of course not, are you?

...what did Jesus say?

For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.  Matt 5:18

There's still a Heaven and an Earth...

Here, let me post it again:

And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.  And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst. And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.  Luke 23:44-46

Jesus died (sic) on Wednesday at the 9th hour, that's 3 PM in the afternoon for us, the exact same time the Priests were killing the afternoon sacrifices in the Temple, ...Behold the Lamb of God!

When the even was come, there came a rich man of Arimathaea, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus' disciple: He went to Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be delivered.  And when Joseph had taken the body, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth,  And laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock: and he rolled a great stone to the door of the sepulchre, and departed.  Matt 27:57-60

Roman Law stated that the Coroner certify the prisoner was dead, hence the spear piercing the side of Jesus, obviously Joseph of Arimathaea had to wait for Pilate to receive this, ...our story records for us it was the evening, ...the Jews at that time had two evenings, one that started at 3 Pm until 6 PM and the other at   6 PM until 3 starts were visible in the sky, which one it was the writer didn't tell us, ...but, either one would of been before the start of Thursday. 

Friday the 6th day of the week, my error, ...it was the Day of Preparation for the Sabbath of the Jews, preparing everything so that they weren't guilty of working on the Sabbath, ...I'm certain it's the same thing for you...

I haven't missed out on any new revelation key points, all I've done is show the time line of the Passion Week, ...and I'm certainly not the first one to do so, many more scholarly than myself have done the same!

Yes you have shown the timeline of the Passion week - which shows Yashua died and was buried on a Wednesday just before sunset as the Sabbath drew on Lk 23v54  (that Sabbath being a High day 1st day of unleavened Bread Jh 19v31 -not the weekly Sabbath). So, counting 3 days and 3 nights from before sunset Wednesday brings us to the same time on saturday/Sabbath before sunset.....hence His resurrection on the Sabbath.

Why then are people celebrating Jesus resurrection as having been on sunday ? ?? very subtly Truth has been removed from God's Holy day to another and is deceiving millions of people.
