My family and I once again celebrated Passover last night and once again God revealed Himself in a very powerful way. It makes the communion that we as Christians celebrate make so much more sense. To go through the four cups and their meanings and read from the New Testament of how Jesus spoke of them and fulfilled them and will fulfill the last and to see the middle bread pulled out of the cloth and hearing the words of Jesus saying this is my body is an illuminating experience, what light He sheds on His Word. Our God is wonderful and I think Him for His festivals that reveal Yeshua to us in a live and vibrant way. May we as Gentile Christians never forget where our faith comes from and that our Lord Himself was a Jew who celebrated and fulfilled Passover.
Yeshua is our King!
Yesterday was the Day of Atonement in which the High Priest would go into the Holy of Holies and sprinkle the blood of the sacrifice on the mercy seat. Once this was done God would pass judgement on the people. This was a life or death verdict.
For those in Christ Jesus, those who have been covered with the blood of Yeshua, our verdict will be life. For those outside of the Messiah, the verdict will be death. Where are you?
For those in Messiah, if God were to pass judgement on your relationship with Him, would He be proud of you?
We all need to take our life with Him seriously and not take it for granted.
Yeshua is Life,
