Passover

Passover


~ What is Passover ~


Passover is the fourteenth day of the month Nissan. Passover is celebrated in Jewish homes with a Seder. The story of Passover is often recounted during the Seder and read from a Haggadah. Traditionally symbolic foods like Charoset and Horseradish are eaten. The symbolic foods are placed on a specific plate called a Seder plate/tray. No leavened foods are eaten during Passover. The Passover Seder is a reminder to the families celebrating of their ancestors suffering in Egypt and of the miraculous deliverance from their bondage.

~ A “How to” guide to Passover/Seder ~



First Coming of Messiah
Just As His 2nd Coming will be Fulfilled By The Fall Feasts


Lev 23:1,2 And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them, The feasts of the LORD, which you shall proclaim, holy convocations, even these are My appointed feasts. "

When Christians read the word “feast” we think of “food”. But this couldn't be further from the truth. The word “feast” in Hebrew is the word “Moed” and means “A Divine Appointment”!! The word “convocation” in Hebrew is “miqra” and means a “time of assembly” but implies it is for “A Dress Rehearsal”!!! This is why every year, for 1,500 years, Israel would kill the Passover Lamb on the 14th day of the first month because it was a “dress rehearsal” for what was to come on that very day, the 14th of the first month 1,500 yrs later!! Not only did it happen on that very day but notice the times:

Mk 15: 21,25 And they compelled one Simon a Cyrenian, who passed by, coming out of the country, the father of Alexander and Rufus, to bear his cross. And it was the third hour, and they crucified him.

The third hour is the time of the morning sacrifice. The very moment they were putting the morning sacrifice on the altar they put Yeshua on the cross! What else do we see:

Mt 27:46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

The ninth hour is the time of the evening sacrifice and on this day the slaying of the Passover Lamb! At the very moment the High Priest slew the Passover Lamb was when Yeshua died! It is also known as the hour of prayer:

Ac 3:1 Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour.

Here Yeshua is offering up His prayer to the Father at that ninth hour!

Josephus records that for Passover, “in one day, they would slay 150,000 lambs.” There were huge water cisterns that would flush all the blood, thousands of gallons of blood, out the right side of the Temple in aqueducts down into the valley of blood to keep the Temple area clean. Imagine at the very moment the blood and water is flowing from the right side of the Messiah, thousands of gallons of blood and water is flowing from the right side of the Temple down into the Hinnom Valley.

Within Judaism is a term known as “Keriah” or the rending of the garment upon the notice of a loved one’s death. It symbolizes a broken heart. The Bible records many instances of rending the clothes from top to bottom after the news of death. When Jacob saw Joseph’s coat of many colors drenched with what he thought to be his son's blood, he rent his garments. Likewise, David tore his clothes when he heard of the death of King Saul, and Job, who knew grief so well, stood up and rent his mantle. So what do we find but at the moment of the death of Yeshua, the Father rends his garment, the veil of the Temple from top to bottom, mourning the death of His son and His broken heart!

In Exodus 12:3,5 We find the Lamb had to be brought in on the 10th and held until the 14th. It was to have no blemish. In John 12 we find:
Joh 12:1 Then Jesus six days before the Passover came to Bethany, Since Passover is on the 14th this had to be the 8th going into the 9th.

Joh 12:12,13 On the next day much people that were come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord.

Here it is the 10th of Nisan when the Passover lambs are coming into the temple! At the same time here comes Yeshua fulfilling prophecy. The lambs had to be inspected for four days to make sure they were without blemish. At the same time the Passover lambs were being inspected so was Yeshua. No one could find any fault in him! Not Herod, Pilate, the thief on the cross, the Pharisees or Sadducees. He was truly a lamb without blemish.

God even decided at creation what songs would be sung at His Son’s funeral! We know from Revelation:
Re 13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

Every year at Passover they sang from their hymn book which was the Psalms. They would sing the Hallel which consists of Ps 113- 118. God inspired King David to write them with the Passover event in mind. Imagine a 100,000 member choir all singing at the time of the morning sacrifice when Yeshua was being bound to the cross. What were the words He was hearing as they bound Him:

Ps 118:27 God is the LORD, which hath showed us light: bind the sacrifice with cords, even unto the horns of the altar.

They would sing these Psalms at 9am, 12:00pm and 3pm. So at noon when it became dark here is what they were singing:
Ps 118:15,16 The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tents of the righteous; the right hand of the LORD does mighty things. The right hand of the LORD is lifted up; the right hand of the LORD does mighty things.

At 3pm when Yeshua died they were singing:
Ps 113:3-6 From the rising of the sun to its going down, the LORD’s name is to be praised. The LORD is high above all nations, and His glory above the heavens. Who is like the LORD our God, who dwells on high, who humbles Himself to behold the things in the heavens and in the earth!

Even the “hymn at the last supper” has been recorded for all of history. What was that hymn they were singing just before He was betrayed:

Ps 118:22,23 The Stone which the builders refused has become the Head of the corner. This is from the LORD; it is marvelous in our eyes.

Can you see how the Lord had it all planned out? Come and join us as we dive deeper into our Hebrew roots and discover so much more than what is on the surface! The Lord wants you to find Him in His Torah, His Word, that is dear to His heart. As you know out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks and the Torah was just that! The spoken Word of God directly from His mouth and heart for all of mankind to learn from. Come and explore with us!!
