Yeshua in the Passover
Jewish families thoroughly clean their homes each spring in preparation for Passover, the most observed Biblical Festival in the Jewish calendar. For 3500 years’ Jewish families from around the world have been using the time of Passover to begin a new episode of life. Symbolically leaven represents sin in the Bible, because it ‘puffs up’. All leaven is removed from the household, reminding families and individuals that sin must be routed out from even the smallest hiding places. God sees even our ‘hidden’ sins.
The Passover season includes three different, yet related celebrations on the Jewish calendar: Passover, the Feast of Unleavened Bread, and the Feast of First Fruits. Passover signifies the release from the bondage of sin for all placing their faith in God. The Feast of Unleavened Bread represents partaking of a life overcoming the power of sin. The Feast of First Fruits represents several important events: 1) the passage of Israel through the Red Sea; 2) the anniversary of the day Noah’s Ark came to rest after the flood; and 3) it represents Resurrection Day—the day Yeshua (Jesus’s name in Hebrew) rose from the grave.
God calls His festivals “dress rehearsals” and in fact, after fifteen hundred years of preparation, Yeshua (Jesus) became “The Lamb of God” accomplishing every element of these first three festivals, at the exact time, in the exact way and to the last detail.
This one singularity in time has brought about the Common Era C.E. when all humanity has the opportunity to be reconciled to their creator.
The Passover Seder (Order of evening and meal) presents the story of freedom from Egyptian slavery, Israel’s identity as a Nation, and the story of redemption that Yeshua (Jesus) fulfills as the Passover Lamb. “Then came the day of Matzah (unleavened bread), on which the Passover Lamb had to be killed. Yeshua sent Peter and John, instructing them, ‘Go and prepare our Seder so we can eat” Luke 22:7 As this Scripture states, let’s all be ready to come together for this decreed time called Pesach. At this time pray for all to come to faith in Yeshua The-Messiah (Jesus The-Christ) and for all to clean their house of sin, being encouraged to walking with God. Take the opportunity to attend a Messianic Passover Seder this year, you will find it most refreshing.
