“Both of these sacred celebrations remind us that God’s love redeems the world… Happy Passover, happy Easter, thank you, God bless you, and God bless America.”
May YHWH be pleased to bless us as a nation and as individuals! Thanks President Trump
On Facebook recently, Chris Lavers shared this about Passover and the relationship to the death burial and resurrection of Yahshua (Jesus), Messiah, the one slain from the foundation of the world (Revelation 13:8b):
Jesus was born into this world in the exact place the sacrificial lambs were born, and He was sacrificed with them in death as well. Having observed the Passover meal on the 14th day of the month of Nisan (the day beginning at sundown “the night before” in our terms), as ordained by God the Father, His scourging and trials took place during that same night and He died at the 9th hour, the precise hour at which the sacrifices began.
His sacrifice was for us, once and for all time. He who was without sin was in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights during the Feast of Unleavened Bread before He arose, offering to God the Father the pure, unleavened (without sin), first fruits of the harvest.
Paul writes, “But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive. But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who are Christ’s at His coming.”
1 Corinthians 15:20-23
Just as God passed over the children of Israel by the blood of a lamb and saved them when they fled Egypt in the Exodus, Jesus Christ (Yeshua Ha’Mashiach) became our Passover Lamb to save us all with His death, burial, and resurrection. We don’t choose Jesus to “make Him Lord of our life.” He IS Lord of our life. We can choose to follow Him, and where He leads is to the Kingdom of God and to life everlasting. All other paths lead to destruction. He died for us, the least we can do is live for Him.
Pesach Sameach, Happy Passover!
This just in via email from Wayne Hill:

All four propositions passed. However, Proposition 2 (which included Price Tower Park and Amphitheater) passed by a much thinner margin at a little over 66%; the other propositions passed by about 79%, 83% and 81% respectively. A voter turnout of 4,138 people made this decision for a city with a population of approximately 34,748. Bartlesville is in a declining population mode which means fewer people will be paying into the property tax base to cover these bonds. That is about 8% of the population voting in this special election.
Maybe we should eliminate special elections and have these matters on general election ballots so that more people would participate. Just a thought…
For more info on what was actually on the ballot and how much money we just authorized spending – see my previous article here: https://scrosnoe.wordpress.com/2018/03/06/oklahoma-special-elections/
Here is a listing of all the special elections by county across Oklahoma (it is a pdf file and downloadable):
Only problem is it doesn’t give you the ballot wording on bonds. It does give you candidate names on the ballot in those cases. But you will still have to do your own research! This will simply tell you if there is an election in your area.
For my friends in Bartlesville, here is the ballot wording for all the money on the table for us in the City of Bartlesville.

What happens in a declining population base? Can we really afford all this? Will property taxes really remain the same?
I am so mad about the bundling of the much extravagant and unneeded amphitheater in proposition 2 – I may just vote no across the board. I mean if they would do that on item 2 who knows what is buried in the other items!
My philosophy is when in doubt vote no and this time there is no doubt on Proposition 2 in my mind!

My earlier post on topic is here.
Several bloggers are collaborating on this analysis and shocking information regarding voting records during the recent special session. Here are the votes reviewed:

Just look at all those R’s below 50% — not a pretty picture at all!
Me thinks we have some HOUSEcleaning todo…
