PASSOVER... YESHUA IS OUR PASSOVER

In 1Corinthians 5:7 it mentions that "For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us." John the Baptist saw Jesus walking by and said, "Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world." He was correct. Jesus was crucified on the exact day, at the exact time that the head of each house would sacrifice the lamb for his family. Amazing!!! In Jewish tradition and covenant, a lamb was sacrificed each year on the 14th day of the first month. They would separate this lamb for five days and prepare it by grooming, feeding and getting familiar with it, knowing it would be sacrificed! Yeshua was just as the lamb prepared by Jewish fathers. We need to set Him apart, knowing He too was innocent but was sacrificed so we could be reconciled to God. He Still is the Lamb who takes our sins away. Never forget that we as believers in our Lord and our Savior get to sit with Him at the His table!!!

APPLY THE BLOOD

Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience... Hebrews 10:22a The blood of the old covenant had to be applied, not just shed. The blood of the Passover lamb had to be applied to the door posts(Exodus 12:22), and the blood of the goat had to be sprinkled(applied) before the mercy seat seven times(Leviticus 16:15). The blood had to be applied then, and it has to be applied now in the new covenant as well! The blood that Yeshua shed seven ways was profiled by the sprinkling of blood before the mercy seat. When you take communion, go from the top of His head to the soles of His feet to get your cleansing. The blood that came from His crown was shed for forgiveness from idolatry; out of His brow for sins of fear and doubt; out of His back to be healed; out of His side for intentional sins;out of His hands to purify your hands instruments of righteousness; from His bruises for iniquities to be cleansed; out of His feet …
