PASSOVER

At the stroke of midnight of Nissan 15 (1313 BC), God visited the last of the ten plagues on the Egyptians, killing all their firstborn. Earlier that evening, the Children of Israel conducted the first “Passover Seder” of history, eating the roasted meat of the Passover offering with matzah and bitter herbs, and sprinkling the blood of the sacrifice on their doorposts as a sign that God will “pass over” their homes when inflicting the plague upon the Egyptians. Pharaoh’s resistance to free them was broken, and he virtually chased his former slaves out of the land. Several million souls — 600,000 adult males, plus the woman and children, and a large “mixed multitude” of non-Hebrews who joined them — left Egypt on that day, and began the 50-day trek to Sinai and their birth as God’s chosen people.

Passover, or Pesach, is first mentioned in the Bible in Sh’mot (Exodus) 12 where it is referred to as The Lord’s Passover. Then in Vayikra (Leviticus) 23 we read about the holy convocations, which include Passover. These Mo’edim, or Holy Days, are a “permanent regulation through all your generations, no matter where you live.” (23:14)

Now … fast forward to the same date in history, about 33 AD. Yeshua, the Lamb of God has just been crucified on the Roman cross. He hung between two thieves. One thief acknowledged his need for forgiveness and obtained eternal life, the other thief denied the gift that was offered.

Today we are getting our homes ready for this week of observance and celebration, reading the Passover story, time with our families. Let us consider this One Yeshua — this One Who has been sent by God as recorded by Yochanan (John) 1:29b:

“Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!”

There it is. Clearly stated. Yeshua is the Passover Lamb. He has provided all that is necessary for the blood to be applied to the doorposts of our heart—what is our response? Have we obeyed the Lord by accepting His sacrifice and turning from the sin that enslaved us? Have we received this free gift that Yeshua’s death and resurrection has purchased? Have our families, each person individually, entered in to this covenant that has been offered and so freely given at such great cost?

LET US PRAISE ADONAI FOR SO GREAT A SALVATION!!!
