PERSONAL DECLARATION by Robert Rombough
I have found some are questioning the intent of these articles. Please recognize that they are being delivered by a humble servant, bringing God’s warning as a Watchman, presented through the Holy Spirit. Through these warnings, the purpose is to allow the spiritual leaders, teachers, shepherds, and total Ecclesia to discern and react.
A critical point here, the choices made from this information must be made as an individual once the material is verified and discerned. The research being offered is not a personal opinion but based on chronologically scriptural findings to reveal what has been presented as a subtle position for generations. As a result, the delusion is deeply entrenched in congregational customs, family traditions and societal approval.
My appeal at this juncture is for all to step back, pause in prayer, turn to the Lord, asking for heavenly guidance; as God’s children, we are being challenged by Yeshua through these messages to do an assessment of our position in salvation and especially our personal relationship with the Son of God. I pray those who read this warning will discern the need to assess and get beyond their flesh and minds holding them captive.
So as discerning individuals, I want to believe you would not prejudge an unfamiliar perspective on your position with Yeshua. The intelligence I speak of is quite personal yet affects everyone.
“No greater love can a man demonstrate than, to tell the truth, which may offend some, but save the souls of those who have an ear to hear, an eye to see, and the wisdom to get past their pride, ego, and humanism to do the right thing, step back, take a moment, pray, and from the heart, sincerely, examine their position.
What importance is the statement “it is finished” to the Assemblies and Ecclesia as grounds in exposing Satan’s 1% error? Our further investigation will reveal the full significance and its role in exposing Satan’s subtlety.
OPENING STATEMENT by Robert
To get to the significance of Yeshua stating, “it is finished,” I need to set the stage for an understanding of what covenant Yeshua was operating under. Many will know it was the Old Testament Covenant. Some may not. It is essential for those not familiar with this era to recognize the significance Yeshua’s statement holds and what it identified.
We need to understand what happened to an individual’s soul when they died under the Old Testament covenant. Before Yeshua’s resurrection, a person’s soul went to a place called in Hebrew “Sheol,” it didn’t matter whether they were good or evil. All souls went to “Sheol.” Job describes it in chapter 10: 19-22 as the land of doom and utter darkness that even the light is like darkness; David described “Shoel” as the land of the forgotten, as the living forget the dead. Isaiah 38:10 says it is a city with gates.
We will see the significance of this in Matthew 12:40. This is where we begin to understand where Yeshua’s soul went once he was declared dead and placed in the tomb. Yeshua died under the Old Testament covenant, so his soul had to enter “Sheol,” as did the souls of the two crucified with Him.
Now, knowing the three souls entered “Sheol,” another critical piece of information becomes available. When Yeshua stated to the thief on His right that you shall be in “Paradise” with me, I am sure many as I did believe Yeshua was referring to heaven, and it appears we thought wrong. Remember, they were still under the Old Testament covenant. Now in the parable in Luke 16: 19-26, we are given a description of Shole having two compartments, one a place of fiery torment for those evil and an area known as Abraham’s Bosom, a pleasant place to be, while waiting for the beginning of the New Testament covenant.
It is here we learn the Greek name for Shole is “Hades” and as well that in Shole, Abraham’s Bosom was known as “Paradise,” which Yeshua was referring to when he turned to the thief stating he would be with him in Paradise, that day. Before the resurrection of Yeshua, all souls went to Shole, which we now understand during his death was known as “Paradise.”
What significance does all of this information have in exposing Satan’s subtle delusion? The following facts through scripture reveal how we are able to uncover it.
We begin to get a picture of why Yeshua descended into Hell and the foundation which was being laid to come to pass. Yes, one of his purposes was to remove those in Abraham’s Bosom to heaven Acts 2:27 For thou wilt not abandon my soul in Sheol. Neither will thou allow Thy Holy One to undergo decay. This is the fulfillment of Psalms 16:10. God did not leave Yeshua in Sheol. This becomes an important factor in the eventual exposure of Satan’s delusion. This is reinforced by Ephesians 4:8-10 Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men. v9) (Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? v10) He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)
When we discern Ephesians 4:9, we find that when Yeshua descended into Sheol, it was to pay for all our sins; thus, in doing so was able to free the captives of Abrahams Bosom and gather them into heaven when he ascended. Thus, on the third day, when Yeshua was resurrected he spelled the end of the Old Testament Covenant and ushered in the New Testament covenant.
The following is quoted from John Calvin’s book The Institutes of the Christian Religion. “Christ only endured corporeal death in order to interpose between us and God’s anger and satisfy His righteous judgment. It was necessary that He should feel the weight of divine vengeance. Whence also it was necessary that He should engage, as it were, at close quarters with the powers of hell and the horrors of eternal death.
He understood and paid all the penalties which must have been exacted from them, the only exception being the pains of death could not hold him. Hence there is nothing strange in it being said that he descended to hell, seeing he endured the death which is inflicted on the wicked by an angry God.
The creed appropriately adds the invisible and incomprehensible judgment that he endured before God. To teach us that not only was the body of Christ given up as the price of redemption but that there was a greater and more excellent price that He bore in his soul the tortures of a condemned and ruined man.”
Now, all the pieces of the puzzle will fall into place, when we look at the end of the Old Testament covenant; we must recognize the New testament covenant does not begin until the resurrection of Yeshua. The importance of this becomes clear when we follow the Mosaic Sacrificial System. We begin to see where Satan’s 1% error is beginning to be exposed.
Our research shows that Yeshua was crucified and died at the exact time the Last Mosaic High Priest Passover Lamb was sacrificed. It becomes important to understand Yeshua on the cross represented the final Passover Lamb of the Mosaic Sacrificial System, not the High Priests Lamb, as the Old Testament Covenant was about to end. Now to symbolize the last sacrifice, which normally would be the High Priests, in this case, it was Yeshua’s sacrifice as the Passover Lamb, which signalled the end of all Passover sacrifices for sin.
In the Mosaic System, when the High priest had completed the sacrifice for the sins of the nation, he would step back from the altar, throw his hands out to his side right and left and call out, “It is finished.” Meaning there would be no more sacrifices; he was the last.
However, there is an important piece of information to be noted how Yeshua was recognized as the Passover Lamb. The custom was for the High Priest on the tenth of the month to go and select his unblemished Lamb and then parade it into the city while the people waved Palm branches in recognition of the Passover Lamb entering the city and the Temple, where for four days it would be tended to in order to keep it unblemished. On this particular Passover, Yeshua entered the city on a donkey and received the acknowledgment of the Passover Lamb to be sacrificed.
So when Yeshua, at the exact time as the High Priest was declaring the Passover Lamb as the end, by declaring It is Finished. Yeshua, as the final Passover Lamb, declared the end of the Old Testament covenant through His final act on the cross with his arms outstretched, declaring, “It Is Finished!” Meaning there will be no more need for Passover Lambs as His sacrifice is the final payment.
When we discern the scriptures, it is here that we see our Lord is alive in Heaven. Those in Abrahams Bosom are in a new Paradise, Heaven. There is no longer a need to have a Passover Lamb sacrificed each year. We have been shown to remember our Lord through the sacrament each week, not celebrate a rebirth each year, that in having to crucify the Lord each Passover is a declaration the Christ being sacrificed is not the final Passover Lamb. The true Passover Lamb “Yeshua,” declared “It is Finished,” paid for our sins once, was resurrected, walked among his disciples for 40 days, ascended and has been alive for 2022+ years sitting on the right hand of God, as proof of eternal life, preparing His flock to return and lift His righteous followers into the clouds to meet Him.
The flaw of Satan is that his Jesus must be crucified each year and reborn each year. The Son of God I worship is alive and does not need to be sacrificed annually as he Declared It Is Finished, and I believe it is, done. The Yeshua I worship does not have to be reborn each year, and hearlded by the Magi at his birth. The Yeshua I worship is part of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Triune, who once sacrificed himself for the sins of the world as the Passover Lamb, descended into Hell, conquered the evils and horrors of Hell, vanquished death and on the third day raised Abrahams Bosom (Paradise) into heaven and 40 days later, Ascended alive leaving a comforter and protector (the Holy Spirit) as a reminder of His greatness and that He is very much alive. Uses his obedient servants to bring truth forward as a warning for all to measure their walk and assess their relationship
Matthew 7:20-29 Wherefore by their fruits, all of you shall know them. 7:21 Not every one that says unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that does the will of my Father which is in heaven. 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name? and in your name have cast out devils? and in your name done many wonderful works? 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, all of you that work iniquity. 7:24 Therefore whosoever hears these sayings (o. logos) of mine, and does them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: 7:25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. 7:26 And every one that hears these sayings (o. logos) of mine, and does them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 7:27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. 7:28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, (o. logos) the people were astonished at his doctrine: 7:29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
