Second Passover: Sundown, May 22, 2016

Is the Second Passover significant?

Quite possibly, it is VERY significant.  Consider, Numbers 9:1-15.

….Then Yehovah spoke to Moses, saying, 10 “Speak to the sons of Israel, saying, ‘If any one of you or of your generations becomes unclean because of a dead [f]person, or is on a distant journey, he may, however, observe the Passover to Yehovah. 11 In the second month on the fourteenth day at twilight, they shall observe it;

In numbers 9 we read the story of some men who were not able to partake of the Passover at the appointed time in the first month because they were unclean.  Moshe is then instructed by Yehovah to tell them to partake in the second month, on the fourteenth day according to the guidelines.

Several very interesting items pop out from, or are connected with, these verses:

  • Passover is so important that if one misses it due to ritual uncleanness, there is a provision for a second partaking.  No other feast has such an allowance.
  • Moshe requests on behalf of those unclean, but Abba adds an allowance.  those on a distant journey.  Who but Ephraim, and those returning home, are on a distant journey?
  • Noah entered the ark and was saved.  Studying the story seems to indicate that the animals came on the 10th day of the second month and they were shut up as the rain came on the 17th day of the month.  Certainly the story has Passover implications, but is it possible that Noah celebrated Second Passover and was ‘waved’ before Yehovah on the waters on First Fruits?  Consider, Methusalah died in the year that Noah floated, so was Noah unclean at the first Passover due to burying his grandfather?  Quite possibly.  (And, significantly, does this little picture have a meaning for those of us who live in a time period that is ‘as in the days of Noah?’)

Here’s the simple point:  If you missed Pesach, or know someone who did and wants to celebrate, there is still time!!  The evening of May 22 is the beginning of Second Passover and you have time to prepare!!  My wife and I have been invited to lead a small private Pesach for a couple people who missed Passover this year.  We will lead them in their first Feast and first Passover, ever!  We, and they, as so excited!! (Pray for this little gathering!)

Shalom and blessings!

    My sister and her family is presently struggling with some of the traditions within which we were raised. Having realized my family had celebrated with some friends, she approached me a day or two after Passover and asked if she has to wait till next year to celebrate it. Of course the answer is no. Therefore we also will have a second month Passover with a segment of my family who have never experienced the Seder,
    As a 10 triber, I find second Passover very special since Hezekiah’s Passover was also a second month Passover (1 Chronicles 30:2) I tell my guests it appears Hezekiah’s Passover was the northern kingdom’s last chance before the dispersion… therefore we give thanks for this opportunity to celebrate Passover. Pray for us also.

    I too will be in coventant with Elohim at 2nd Passover! Let me tell you. All during 1st Passover I felt quilty. Again, I was taking part, although by myself. Yah kept telling me, in His quiet, reassureing voice,”not to worry.” But… And then there was this. Who would’ve thought about a 2nd Passover?Given a year ago, who had read into this? Who “saw” this?” Though we don’t understand, we have faith. Patiently. WOW! Thank-you, my Elohim. Jim

      Welcome, James.

      No reason to feel guilty at ‘first’ Passover. The ‘second’ Passover is supplemental, but *may* have prophetic significance.
