Someone over in a YouTube comment just gave me a bunch of food for thought!!
Zachary Bauer of New2Torah just posted a neat short video on the Greater Exodus. He quickly and concisely summarizes what I already knew. Good watch… but a comment got the thought juices going!
I recommend the video, but here is the comment that really made me think:
Last year when I read through the bible I stumbled over Luke 22:15-17 where Yeshua basically says that he won’t eat it this seder again until it will receive its full meaning in the kingdom of God…and then he would eat it with us again. So even then he implied a greater exodus. – Pesach hadn’t the full meaning even by his atonement yet..taking then into consideration John 11:48-52 and the prophesy in Jeremia 16:15-17 it clearly showes that Pesach is a recurring theme from the beginning throughout until the end..it was most likely the time of Adam and Eve’s exodus, where God also made atonement and covered them with, what I think – lamb skins..Lot and his family made their exodus (he baked unleavened bread in the evening), the Children of Israel, ours out of sinslavary, when Yeshua died for us..and all the time it also involves experience in the wilderness.. also the woman/bride in the end time… so many verses show this actually. I hope I’m staying focused totally on Yeshua and not look back, like Lot’s wive and don’t be ancious like the Children of Israel..I have a lot of trusting still to learn!
Pardoning the typos, the content is a terrific summation! It makes several VERY valuable points:
- The way the text in Luke 22:16 is worded, it gives me the very definite impression that a) Pesach is not and will not be fulfilled until the Kingdom of God is finalized and, b) Yeshua plans on partaking again at that point!! You get that? Right now we still only have a partial fulfillment, contrary to Christian dogma and, Yeshua plans to partake again at that point, also contrary to Christian dogma! Hmmm… Wonder how that dogma is working out??!
- I was familiar with Lot and of course Egypt as Passovers, but had never considered Adam and Eve’s exodus from the Garden as a Pesach, though the type and timing is perfect.
- I was familiar with the Greater Exodus, but had only recently, and all too lightly compared/considered it in light of Lot, but that is a type we need to look more closely at!!
- If Passover is a feast that yet has future fulfillment, and I believe that it is, then by all means, we best be keeping it with all seriousness as each year is a rehearsal that draws us nearer to the very real execution of another Exodus!
- It is cool to be reminded that our Father doesn’t do things ‘willy-nilly.’ Rather, He has a specific plan and tells us exactly how to prepare for it! When He tells Israel in Exodus 12:14 and 24 that this is a perpetual ordinance to be observed throughout your generations in all your dwellings forever, He has a reason!! We’d be wise to listen!
