What is Easter/Passover? Why is the blood of Jesus the only blood that can save us?
After 400 years as slaves In Egypt, the Jews were badly bruised. They cried out to God: “Have you forgotten us? We are the sons and daughters of Abraham?
God of Jacob has not forgotten them. He was merciful to them, and took His own people out of slavery and Egypt. He ordered the Jews to slaughter their best lamb, and apply the blood of the lamb over their doorposts. God lilted all the firstborn Egyptians, as a punishment for the kings refusal to let the Jews leave, and go to their promised land. The destruction angles passed over the houses of the Jews, covered by the blood of the lambs.
We need to know and acknowledge this, to be able to grapes why John the Baptist called Jesus a “lam”.
The next day John saw Jesus coming towards him and said, ‘Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!
Today, is the 14th of Nisan. All Messianic Jews and proselytes celebrate Passover, in remembrance of the lam and the blood. They remember how God saved the Jewish people from death and destruction in Egypt. Messianic Jews all over the World praise Jesus (Yeshua) the Messiah. He is the lamb of God. With our the sacrifice of blood, there is no forgiveness of sins.
It was Jesus who took the Jews out of Egypt.
1 Corinthians 10: 2-4
They were all baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea. They all ate the same spiritual food and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that rock was Christ.
The exodus from Egypt is a lasting testimony about a living God, and the need to take Him seriously. Otherwise, man face a disaster. It was the Messiah who took the Jews out of Egypt. The same Messiah who has taken me out of a life as slave to sin. I am free, thanks to Jesus who died for my sins at the cross at Calvary Hill in Jerusalem. He paid the atonement for the sins of the World, with His own blood. The only blood that can save a man.
Accept Jesus as Lord today.
Happy Easter. Happy Passover.
