But Peter Got Up

(Luke 24: 9-12)

YAHSHUA’S last Passover was the most memorable Passover ever observed in the frame of time. Although not recognized and acknowledged by men, it was the most important Passover in God’s purpose of redemption of mankind. That Passover came bringing the sacrifice of the perfect Lamb of God. No other animals that were being slaughtered that day as a sacrifice for the atonement of sin mattered at that time, for God had brought out His only Son to the altar to sacrifice Him and through His death, purchase men for Himself. The shedding of His blood through the nails piercing through His hands and feet, the spear piercing through His side, and the thorns in a shape of a crown piercing His head, were the manner in which He paid the price to redeem men to His Father. YAHSHUA warned His disciples several times about His ultimate sacrifice; however they were deaf to the fact- deaf to the point of betraying and denying Him. Why would they believe His resurrection, when they did not believe His death could happen? Peter tried to stop him from going to the cross more than one time; however, when the time arrived, he denied to have known Him. YAHSHUA called them the incredulous generation; the word incredulous means unwilling, or unable to believe; doubt and skepticism according to Webster’s dictionary. That was the position of the disciples all along even when YAHSHUA warned them of His death and His resurrection.

I have been committed to teaching the truth of the Word of God beginning with Trans World Radio on Bonaire, N.A and Swaziland, Africa (1969-1980), then through churches in the United States in both English and Portuguese and then through ministry in Israel (2005-2006). This ministry continues through local Bible studies and outreach to the world via the internet. I have written a book about my life from that of an orphan in Brazil to missionary in 5 countries.
