Mystery of the Ma’arav

31 May

Mystery of the Ma’arav…

Micah prophesied that, “one will go forth from you Bethlehem, whose origins are from old, from ancient times.” The Hebrew word for ancient times is kadem, which also means the east or the sunrise.

Jesus’s origins are from the sunrise. He is the Light of the world. If He is from the sunrise, then His destination would be the place of the sunset or the west, which in Hebrew is the ma ‘arav, the sunset place, the going down.

Jesus’s destination was the cross. Where was the crucifixion? It was to the west, the ma’arav of the city. When did He die on the cross? He died as the sun was setting, the ma’arav of the day. In fact, there was a temple sacrifice called the ma’arav, or the sunset sacrifice that was offered up at three o’clock in the afternoon.

Jesus died at three o’clock. Thank God that Jesus is the ma’arav, the sunset sacrifice. This means that the sun has gone down on your sins, your old life, your past, even today’s sins. So be finished with your old life because Jesus, your ma’arav, has come.

You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; Ephesians 4:22-23

Live by the power of the Ma’arav, Jesus’s sunset – the ending. Break away from your old life, today. You are a new creation in Jesus. Your old life is under His blood.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
