“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!
