Followers of Messiah: Let us Keep the Passover Feast

An excellent overview of Pesach as the appointed time approaches! Let us be preparing our hearts and homes.

Cold Waters to a Thirsty Soul

Lamb by Dan SmithThe annual Memorial Feast of Passover is approaching. This is one of Father’s annual Feasts, as commanded of all believers, in Leviticus 23. The Memorial Feast of Passover is a gathering of Yahuwah’s [the LORD ‘s] people, to remind His people of His great redemption by the blood of the Lamb, and of His mighty salvation and deliverance.

Yahuwah Elohim [the LORD God] has commanded all who follow Messiah to observe the Memorial Passover Feast throughout all generations, as we read in Exodus:

And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the LORD throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance forever. (Exodus 12:14)

And ye shall observe this thing (the Passover) for an ordinance to thee and to thy sons forever. (Exodus 12:24)

The Passover Feast is Father’s annual Feast gathering…

One Response to Followers of Messiah: Let us Keep the Passover Feast

    Shavua Tov Mr.Rambo let me share my thoughts. Here’s a jewish perspective on Pesach/Passover.

    First let me start by saying, its great to see christians promote and have a love for the feast of G-d. And kudos to not equating this with “easter” which is a christian observance and doesn’t relate at all to Passover.

    I would encourage you Mr.Rambo, to re-examine your reason of understanding of what the slaughtering of the lamb represented according to the Torah’s details.

    If you look in Exodus 8:21-22 In the Jewish Bible [8:25-26 in the christian bible]: (Up till this point Egypt has been hammered by the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd plague. Pharaoh has been refusing to let our people go and do our offering in the wilderness to HaShem…. Now we get a clear picture as to what the offering was going to be and what it represented for both Israel and Egypt.)

    “Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron and said, “Go — bring offerings to your G-d in the land. Moses said, “It is not proper to do so, for we will offer the deity of Egypt to HaShem, our G-d — behold, if we were to slaughter the deity of Egypt in their sight, will they not stone us? – 8:21-22 in a Jewish Bible

    Now the christian translators of the Jewish Bible give the emotional feeling/attitude of the act for the Hebrew “TO-a-Vat” תּוֹעֲבַת in the passage in where it says “abominations” but toavat means idols or idol (in this case its feminine singular and its “idol”) an idol is also consider a deity and idols are also an abomination (this invokes the attitude aspect of the hebrew word) to HaShem. Its very important to either know basic hebrew grammatical’s and to have a good all hebrew lexicon to help in these matters.

    In matters like these I always have a christian tool known as the BDB lexicon so I can see where maybe the christian is getting there ideas from based off the translators they read. And in a BDB lexicon pg 1072 they give the descriptor of how G-d views idolatry, which is an abomination. Not until section b of the BDB that they actually get into what is considered abominations to HaShem, and thats Idolatrous practices.

    One facet of how we would understand this passage in 8:21-22 (Jewish Bible) or 25-26 (christian bible) is that Pharaohs terms were in response to Moses’s claim that HaShem was all-powerful even in the land [meaning egypt]. If, indeed, G-d is everywhere, Pharaoh argued, then can you not bring your offerings in egypt? To this Moses responded that Pharaoh’s suggestion was untenable. The Egyptians worshiped sheep (lambs), the very animal that Jews slaughter in serving G-d. Could the Egyptians tolerate such offerings without reacting violently?……Also Abominations can be a literally rendering but you have to keep in mind who the Torah is talking to, and the Torah was given to us at Sinai and so it’s speaking to Jews, and in speaking to Jews, the Torah refers to all idols as abominations. This isn’t the first instant.

    In short the Pascal Offering was a representation of our rejection of idolatry, it had nothing to do with sins or guilt (as christians assert). The Lamb was worshiped by Egypt (non-jews) and G-d wanted to demonstrate what He thought of there god and it showed us no idol has power over the G-d of Israel.

    For a christian to call jesus the passover lamb is very funny because the lamb represented idolatry and christianity is a movement of non-jews who worship jesus and the G-d of Israel.

    But If I were you I would re-examine your understanding of the pascal lamb and its offering.
