How does The Passover and Christ’s Resurrection go together? Part 2

16 Apr


Part 2

The devil used Emperor Constantine’s to separate the work of Jesus from Passover. Now according to the Old Testament (the Torah), The Passover had a number of events that had to take place in a very specific order, and at very specific times.
We read in Exodus 12 how Papa God said that on the 10th day of the first month which is spring time in the Middle East each Israelite was to select a lamb large enough to feed each household. It is interesting a goat was also used if there was no Lamb available (Exodus 12:3). The animal chosen was to be a male without any sort of defect. Unless you could pay off the corrupted religious leaders to look the other way giving you the opportunities to sell the animals without any defects etc.
On the 14th day of that month at evening, the Israelites were to kill the animals and place some of their blood on the doorposts of their homes. Then the animals were to be roasted and eaten along with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. John 6:53,”Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.”
By the time Jesus of Nazareth came in the flesh, the Jewish leaders decided only lambs from Bethlehem were considered eligible to serve as a Passover Lambs. Maybe they had a business arrangement with certain sheep herders at this point that could not be refused? They were all claiming to be legitimate businessmen most likely.
So here is a fact: Only lambs born in Bethlehem were used and brought into Jerusalem from the east which come down through the Mount of Olives entering the city through the sheep gate. Are you seeing how this aligns with Christ’s Second Coming? Now grab on onto this and hold on tight, on the 10th day of 1st month Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the Lamb of God who took away the sin of the world, who was born in Bethlehem, came down the Mount of Olives and entered Jerusalem through the sheep gate on that colt that had never been ridden before. I can only imagine how that colt grew up and conveyed to his animal friends how he was so honoured to be the one the Messiah rode upon.
The people seeing Jesus/Yeshua all waved palm branches and shouted and cheered for him as a conquering hero.
They must have known about Zechariah 9:9,” Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.”

We read in Matthew 21:9,” And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed [is] he that cometh in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the highest. The mass of people here were calming Jesus/Yeshua as their Messiah and they unknowingly just chose their Passover Lamb.

Why did so many people come out to meet Jesus/Yeshua? News traveled fast when they heard or witnessed the healings and miracles of Jesus/Yeshua and because Jesus/Yeshua had recently just raised Lazarus from the grave. Now the Chief Priests were so distraught at hearing such news they also wanted to kill Lazarus off as well as Jesus/Yeshua. Imagine they hated the Lamb of God for doing healings and miracles. Most likely the religious leaders feared he ruin their corrupted business where they fleeced the flock of God at the Temple.

Again keep in mind how every Lamb chosen had to be examined carefully that it did not have any blemishes or faults. As you may recall when Jesus/Yeshua arrives in Jerusalem, he dismounts from the colt and goes straightway to the Temple. Here he starts teaching and preaching a more excellent way. The Pharisees, Sadducees, and the teachers of the Law surround Jesus/Yeshua and begin asking all these difficult and trick questions, trying to trap him somehow if they only could. Why because unknowingly they were looking for any blemish or fault where they might be able to disqualify Him as Messiah before the people. But not one of them could ever find fault with Jesus/Yeshua after all he is perfect.

In the Torah, the Old Testament instructs that before the feast of Passover, all the leaven (anything that is impure) must be throw or cast out of every Israelite home. So every wife and mother took a candle and searched out their home and removed anything she found that needed to go. How many things have you collected in your home that need to be cast out, or in your holy Temples? Passover is still the spiritual spring cleaning. If you recall the Lord Jesus/Yeshua arrives in Jerusalem and entered the Temple. Seeing the corruption there he goes off and makes a whip and then cast out the moneychangers over throwing all their tables. Why because he was following Biblical instruction as the Living Word to prepare for Passover by cleansing His Father’s house of anything unclean that had come in. The corruption in the Temple at this point was intense and seeing how many people came from great distances it grieved the Lord how the people were prevented to simply come and worship in the house of the Lord. This is probably why the Lord wept over Jerusalem just before entering the Temple courts which were now nothing more then a marketing place of merchants paying off corrupted religious leaders.

The next thing that took place was the chosen Lamb is taken to the altar for public display as all the requirement were met then on the morning of the 14th day of the 1st month at 9am, the lamb is led out to the altar and put on public display. According to Roman customs at this time, condemned prisoners were forced to carry their own crosses no matter how beat up and hurting they were. These Romans soldiers were trained and programmed to show no mercy, and no compassion. The way a soldier advanced in rank back then was to beat and kill the officer over him and take his position.

Our Lord Jesus/Yeshua’s who was beaten, bleeding and horribly abused from the Roman whips which tore flesh off with every stripe was now forced to carry his own cross.
Seriously his back must have been ever so raw that muscles and bones were exposed, because those Roman whips had bits of metal or stones tied at the ends of them which ripped skin off when drawn back again.
As Jesus/Yeshua fell under the weight of it the Romans caused that man called Simon who they pulled out of the crowd and forced to help carry the cross with Jesus/Yeshua the rest of the way to Calvary.
Matthew 27:32 ,”And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross.
33 And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull,
34 They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, hewould not drink.”
If your comparing notes here at 9 a.m. that morning which most likely was on a Wednesday or Thursday, just as the lamb was being bound to the altar, The Lamb of God, Jesus/Yeshua was bound naked and nailed to the cross and put on public display.

Apparently the Lamb was annually slain at a specific time precisely at 3 p.m. When the high priest came to the altar to perform the task, another priest would sound the shofar from the temple wall, this would signal the high priest who would cut the throat of the sacrificial Lamb, and declared, out loud “IT IS FINISHED!”
We know that precisely at 3 p.m. from the record at the same precise moment the Passover Lamb of God was killed, Jesus Christ of Nazareth cried out, “IT IS FINISHED,” and commended His spirit to the Father. In other words the wages of sin is death and it has now been paid in full for this fallen world. Romans 6:23,”For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Praise be to God.
John 19:30,”When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.”
The cross was the goal of Jesus/Yershua from before the time he was born and the world was made. He was born to be the lamb of God. He orchestrated all this for our atonement. He was born to die to live forever so that we might live with him. When Christ had accomplished this purpose He summed it up saying simply: It is finished.

The Lord Jesus/Yeshua probably said this numerous times in his life after He finished a project that He and his earthly father Joseph might have worked on together in Joseph’s carpentry shop. Jesus possibly said a number of times to Joseph, “It is Finished. Now let’s go have dinner and a nice cup of tea. Mission accomplished. Project completed.

When the Lord said from the Cross,” It Is finished” Clearly he meant he completed the horrendous sufferings to pay for the sins of this world. Never again would He experience pain and the unimaginable suffering at the hand of the devil and evil men or have to again ever bare the sins of this fallen world. It was all paid in full as recorded in the Holy Scriptures and supernaturally imprinted in 3D on the Shroud of Turin.
Christ left the supernatural image on the burial shroud as a receipt for us as proof of purchase for every true believer. Maybe he left it for a sign for the unbelievers.

Matthew 16:1,” The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven.
2 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.
3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?
4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.”

Passover and the Resurrection of Jesus/Yeshua are quite inseparable and we just need to be aware and understand this so we can really appreciate what Jesus Christ of Nazareth has accomplished for us on the Cross. Satan has been found out, he has tried to steal Passover from the Church because of the power released in the Blood.
Maybe that is why the early church saw so many more signs and wonders, healing’s and miracles, maybe now that we understand we shall experience what our Lord intended for us all along.

Matthew 13:15,” For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. 16 But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.17 For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.”

The Lord Jesus/Yeshua said in John 10:27,” My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:” Fight back overcomers, trust Papa God for every detail and stay in faith! Jesus said in Luke 21:15, “For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.’ I say hallelujah! Because “All”, things are possible with God! I pray the Lord’s supernatural peace, healing, provision and protection cover you always with oceans of agape love in the almighty name of Jesus/Yeshua!
