Pesach Overview

Pesach

On Monday afternoon, April 10th, (14 of Aviv)
is Pesach.
“These are the
set feasts of Jehovah, even holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their
appointed season. In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at
even, is Jehovah’s passover.” Leviticus 23:4-5
On the tenth day of Aviv (first month) the
lamb was separated: “Speak ye unto all the congregation of
Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every
man a lamb, according to their fathers’ houses, a lamb for a household:” Exodus 12.3
On the fourteenth day in
the afternoon, the LAMB was slain and his BLOOD was placed on the thresholds of
our doors.
The last plague came upon
Egypt, the DEATH, and seeing the BLOOD on our doors, passed over and didn’t
touch our families – the night we were redeemed from the slavery of Egypt.
In the same way that it
happened to us as a people, many years ago, that must happen in our lives as
individuals.
Since sin entered the
world, in the Garden of Eden, we have become slaves of sin and our destiny
would be eternal death (spiritual).
But God brought us
REDEMPTION through the MESSIAH who came as a LAMB!
On the tenth day He was
separated when he entered in Jerusalem on a donkey and was acclaimed by the
community as the Son of David.
On the fourteenth day, He
was slain, crucified and killed.
If we agree with this
covenant, his blood is placed on the door-post of our hearts and we are free
from eternal death! HalleluYah!
This may seem too easy for
some, mainly Jews who have learned to abide by many rules in order to be
approved, but if we look at the Scriptures, since Avraham and also in the time
of Moshe and the prophets, it was the FAITH that mattered.
Avraham believed in God’s
words, obeyed and all of us have been blessed.
Moshe believed what he
heard through the burning bush, obeyed and all of us have been blessed.
Yoshua and Calev believed
what they heard, not what they saw, obeyed and all of us have been blessed.
Likewise, the Pesach lamb, YESHUA,
chose to obey and die to give us life, because only the sacrifice and the blood
of a righteous man could get rid of death and eternal condemnation.
Unfortunately today,
Judaism is more based on rabbinical traditions than on the
Bible. It’s a Judaism that chose other paths to redemption: good works,
religious practices, mysticism, etc; but none of these paths satisfies the
principles determined by God, only the BLOOD:
“For the life of
the flesh is in the blood; and I have given it to you upon the altar to make
atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh atonement by reason
of the life.” Leviticus 17.11
Let us pray that during
this Pesach, each Jew will realize he lives in a kind of slavery, will feel the
need for redemption, receive the revelation of the Messiah and return to the
arms of the Father.
It all begins with repentance!!!

“And now,
behold, the cry of the children of Israel is come unto me: moreover I have seen
the oppression wherewith the Egyptians oppress them.” Exodus 3.9
“And I will pour
upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of
grace and of supplication; and they shall look unto me whom they have pierced;
and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in
bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his first-born.” Zechariah 12.10
Watch the movie below – it is great for those who’ve
watched it, to watch it again, and for those who have never watched it, being
able understand a fully Messianic vision of Passover.
The
crucifixion
27.33 Mt-44; MC 15.22-32;
LC 23.33-43
They
took Jesus therefore: and he went out, bearing the cross for himself, unto the
place called The place of a skull, which is called in Hebrew Golgotha: where
they crucified him, and with him two others, on either side one, and Jesus in
the midst. And Pilate wrote a title also, and put it on the cross. And there
was written, JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS. This title therefore read
many of the Jews, for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city;
and it was written in Hebrew, and in Latin, and in Greek. The chief priests of
the Jews therefore said to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but, that
he said, I am King of the Jews. Pilate answered, What I have written I have
written. The
soldiers cast lots
The soldiers therefore, when they had crucified
Jesus, took his garments and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also
the coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout. They
said therefore one to another, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose
it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted
my garments among them, And upon my
vesture did they cast lots. Sl
22.18
 
 These things therefore the soldiers did. But there
were standing by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary
the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus therefore saw his mother,
and the disciple standing by whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman,
behold, thy son! Then saith he to the disciple, Behold, thy mother! And from
that hour the disciple took her unto his own home. 
The
death of Jesus
Mt 27.45-56; MC
15.33-41; LC-49 23.44
After
this Jesus, knowing that all things are now finished, that the scripture might
be accomplished, saith, I thirst. There was set there a vessel full of vinegar:
so they put a sponge full of the vinegar upon hyssop, and brought it to his
mouth. Sl
69.21
 When
Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed
his head, and gave up his spirit.  A
soldier opens the side of Jesus with a spear
The Jews therefore, because it was the Preparation, that the bodies
should not remain on the cross upon the sabbath (for the day of that sabbath
was a high day ), asked of Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that
they might be taken away. The soldiers therefore came, and brake the legs of
the first, and of the other that was crucified with him: but when they came to
Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs: howbeit one
of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and straightway there came out
blood and water. And he that hath seen hath borne witness, and his witness is
true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye also may believe. For these
things came to pass, that the scripture might be fulfilled, A bone of him shall
not be broken. 
Ex 12.46; 9.12 nm; SL 34.20  And again another scripture saith, They shall look on
him whom they pierced. Zc 12.10; AP 1.7  The burial of Yeshua  Mt 27.57-61; MC 15.42-47; LC
23.50-56
And
after these things Joseph of Arimathæa, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly
for fear of the Jews, asked of Pilate that he might take away the body of
Jesus: and Pilate gave him leave. He came therefore, and took away his body.
And there came also Nicodemus, he who at the first came to him by night,
bringing a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds. So they took the
body of Jesus, and bound it in linen cloths with the spices, as the custom of
the Jews is to bury. Now in the place where he was crucified there was a
garden; and in the garden a new tomb wherein was never man yet laid. There then
because of the Jews’ Preparation (for the tomb was nigh at hand) they laid
Jesus.
The
resurrection of Jesus
Mt 28.1-10; MC
16.1-8; LC 24.1-12
“Now on the first day of the week cometh
Mary Magdalene early, while it was yet dark, unto the tomb, and seeth the stone
taken away from the tomb. She runneth therefore, and cometh to Simon Peter, and
to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken
away the Lord out of the tomb, and we know not where they have laid him. Peter
therefore went forth, and the other disciple, and they went toward the tomb.
And they ran both together: and the other disciple outran Peter, and came first
to the tomb; and stooping and looking in, he seeth the linen cloths lying; yet
entered he not in. Simon Peter therefore also cometh, following him, and
entered into the tomb; and he beholdeth the linen cloths lying, and the napkin,
that was upon his head, not lying with the linen cloths, but rolled up in a
place by itself. Then entered in therefore the other disciple also, who came
first to the tomb, and he saw, and believed. For as yet they knew not the
scripture, that he must rise again from the dead. So the disciples went away
again unto their own home.”

Reach out your hand to Yeshua the Messiah,
surrender your life to Him. He is the only Way, the Truth and the Life…

May God bless you, Chag Pesach Sameach!
In the sublime and wonderful name of Yeshua
