The blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you live; and when I see the blood I will pass over you, and no plague will befall you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt. Now this day will be a memorial to you, and you shall celebrate it as a feast to the Lord; throughout your generations you are to celebrate it as a permanent ordinance. Exodus 12:13-14
God said that the Passover feast would be celebrated permanently. He planned, long before the foundation of the world, that this feast would be fulfilled in Jesus’ death on the Cross. He never intended for it to be only a Jewish feast. God saw that through the Exodus and Passover and Jesus dying on the Cross, both Jew and Gentile would be brought together as one. Together, we are to celebrate this feast for all time.
The devil, fully understanding God’s plan, had to find a way to stop this celebration of Jesus’ Blood and the unity of God’s people. Craftily, he used the politics of the Roman Empire to drive a wedge between Jew and Gentile, to separate God’s calendar from the Roman calendar and to nullify the power of the Blood by blending the feast with pagan holidays. We are the end-times generation that God is calling to wake up to His original plan. Our generation is the third and final transitional generation that is being used to usher in the events in the Book of Revelation, culminating in Jesus’ second coming. We must return to our Biblical roots and celebrate Passover and all the feasts God ordained. This is a command from our Father to celebrate our family history and future.
Our celebration will not look like a Jewish Passover. No, we are not under the Law of Moses, but we are redeemed by the Blood of the Lamb and filled with the Holy Spirit. How much more we have to celebrate! We keep the spirit of the Passover feast with great freedom. We are to look into what God did for the Hebrew people and to see how it foreshadowed what Jesus did for us. We celebrate the sacrifice the Jesus, the Lamb of God, made and we honor what God did for the Hebrews. We celebrate with thankful hearts how gracious God has been throughout the ages. We remember Jesus’ sacrifice through communion, partaking of His Body and Blood. That’s really what the Passover meal was about. Look at the symbolism of the elements, learn from them and rejoice at how God put all these treasures in place for us to seek out.
It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, but the glory of kings to search them out. Proverbs 25:2
