HE WAS BROKEN FOR YOU !

Today we know the true meaning of Passover from the perspective of History.

A group of thirteen men gathered together in a small upper room in Jerusalem. They were celebrating together the Jewish feast of Passover. The dinner conversation was centered on the story of God’s people.

Passover was being redefined. No longer was it simply about redemption from slavery, but redemption from sin.

The Teacher, Jesus, was now the Passover lamb.

This group of men made their way from dinner to a garden outside the city, a beautiful garden on a hill overlooking the Temple. Then in the distance the torches could be seen descending from the city and coming towards them.

Life as they knew it would never be the same!

The holiday of Passover is as much yours as mine. It is a holiday God wants us to remember as the night that history was split in two and the events that led to the redemption of God’s people (Born Again Jews and Born Again Christians) were put into motion at the Fullness of Time according to the plan of God.

The purpose of the meal was planned in eternity past within the Trinity so that a true SEEKER of God would be able to understand that the Coming Messiah, the Christ is contained in the elements of the Passover Meal.

The meal is an offering of Remembrance to Almighty God and His Super Natural Miracles of deliverance. But the main parts of the meal, the cup and the bread are there to call to Remembrance the ONE who drank the cup of sin, the ONE whose blood cleanses each of us who believe, the ONE who was born in the City of Beth-lehem…the City of Bread….Yeshua, whose Name means SALVATION…who IS HIMSELF the very Bread of Life…the Son of God.

TIME is almost Over. The DAWN of ETERNITY is Here; and the SON of GOD is Coming Back to take HIS OWN to HEAVEN. You know this Moment in Time as the RAPTURE…..its SOON…..VERY SOON.

HE WAS BROKEN FOR YOU

HE was BROKEN for You !

“Why is this night different from all other nights?” This SEDER question is the ONLY QUESTION that demands an answer !

Every year during Passover the Jewish people answer this question, which is the first of the 4 questions of Passover. Those 4 questions were chosen by the rabbis but there were many other questions that could have easily been chosen.

WHY does the Matzot Bag have 3 compartments for 3 Matzot?
Because it represents the Trinity, GOD in 3 Persons (God the Father, God the SON, and God the Holy
Spirit).
WHY do we BREAK the Middle Matzot in half?
Because Jesus was broken for your sins on HIS CROSS. HE died to Save You.
WHY do we wrap half the Middle Matzot in a cloth and HIDE it?
Because Jesus body was wrapped in a cloth and put into the Tomb for 3 days then HE was RESURRECTED…
HIS TOMB IS EMPTY.
WHY is the word Afikoman the only word in the Jewish Haggadah a Greek word that means HE HAS Come?
Because Jesus fulfilled the Messianic Prophecies about the 1st Coming of the Messiah to die on the
Cross for the Sins of Mankind. HE CAME ALREADY and is coming again soon the 2nd Time. But this time
as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, with Fire in His Eyes, without Hope, Mercy or Grace, in JUDGMENT.
WHY do the children at the end of the Passover Meal search for the BROKEN piece of Matzot that was
wrapped in the cloth and then HIDDEN?
Because to FIND JESUS you need to have the FAITH of a Child. Then you will SEE Jesus in the Old
Testament Messianic Prophecies and BELIEVE.
WHY does the father of the house REDEEM the lost Matzot with money?
Because Jesus the Broken Middle Matzah died on the Cross to REDEEM each of us who BELIEVE in HIM so
we can be in Heaven and not experience our 2nd ETERNAL DEATH in HELL.

The Rabbis have no answers for these questions…but God does. To answer those questions would be to admit that GOD ordained the Passover Meal to remind Jews of their coming Messiah Yeshua…for JESUS IS HIDDEN within the Passover service; just like He is Hidden in the Old Testament, but then REVEALED in the (JEWISH) New Testament.

To see Him clearly in the Old Testament and in the Passover Services you must have a Circumcised Heart, Born Again by the Holy Spirit. Then you will see with the eyes of your heart that has been turned from stone to living flesh.

Forget the 4 Questions of Passover except…ONE !

Why is this night different than all other nights?
Now ask your rabbi to answer the following questions.

WHY does the Matzah Bag have 3 Compartments?

WHY use unleavened (sinless) bread that is striped, pierced, broken
wrapped in linen and Hidden?

WHY is the word Afikoman the only Greek word in the Haggadah
that means HAS ARRIVED?

WHY is the Afikoman broken in half then hidden for children to find?

WHAT is the true meaning of the Cup of Redemption?

I am a Messianic Jew and you are a Jew. The only difference between us is WHO we believe the MESSIAH IS. I have never stopped being Jewish.

God established the holiday of Passover, so that the Jewish people would remember all HIS Mighty Works like providing a way to safety through walls of water.

Later in history, someone came to the Nation of Israel walking out of the pages of the Prophets. HE came and not only Walked ON Water, but told the Storm to BE STILL…and the Storm obeyed HIM.

The Bible is a love story about Gods great love for His children and the ultimate sacrifice of His Son (Proverbs 30:4) for you, so someday you can go to heaven.

The Bible is ONE book.
With ONE HERO….Jesus.
With ONE Villain….Satan.
With ONE Theme….Salvation.
With ONE Purpose….to Glorify Almighty GOD.

“Do not forget me, O my children, says the Lord”. Don’t forget HIM this Tuesday.

Just as the blood of the sacrificial lamb covered the doorpost protecting those inside. So too must the Blood of the Lamb cover your heart to protect you from the wrath of GOD.

Passover Thoughts: How Awesome is God…

… that within the Hebrew names of a genealogy in Genesis 5 in the Old Testament, He would hide the New Testament Plan of Redemption. (Salvation, bought for all through the death of Gods Son, Yeshua!).

ADAM… man (is) SETH… appointed ENOSH… mortal
KENAN… sorrow (but)… MAHALALEL The Blessed God
JARED… shall come down ENOCH… teaching
METHUSALEH… His Death Shall Bring LAMECH… the despairing
NOAH…comfort and rest.

Man (is) appointed mortal sorrow (but) The Blessed God shall come down teaching, HIS DEATH Shall Bring the despairing comfort and rest.

Remember, History is His Story, the story of Christ. That story is hidden in the Old Testament and Revealed in the New Testament.

Each one of us needs to see Yeshua / Jesus as God’s Passover Lamb who died and shed His blood for us and atoned for us so that we can pass over from death to a new life with the Living God.

For Centuries the Passover Seder ended with a shout of Next Year in Jerusalem. Well, the Jewish people now have Jerusalem and the new cry is Messiah Come Now. They cry out for the coming of their Messiah.

We also wait for Him and look forward to the New Jerusalem, the city of God from heaven where we will enjoy the feast of Salvation with our Messiah someday soon.

Israel is God’s prophetic time clock. The Lord said we would not know the day, but we would know the signs of the times. It is time to be looking upward to heaven……because our redemption……The Lord Yeshua the Messiah……Jesus the Christ…….Yeshua, The Lamb Of God……IS Coming Soon.

Its not the end of the world like we often hear, but a new world and a new beginning for those of us that Love The Lord Yeshua !

Passover thoughts: The 3rd Cup of Redemption

Immediately after the matzah, we drink the third cup of redemption. Jesus, during the Last Supper specifically took the 3rd cup after supper, the cup of redemption through which God said “I will take you for My people and I will be your God”.

Luke 22, verse 20 says “In the same way, he (Jesus) took the cup after they had eaten.” Jesus infused the cup with new meaning when he said “This cup which is poured out for you is the New Covenant in MY blood.” This fulfilled Jeremiah Ch. 31 vs. 33 when the prophet spoke for God saying, “I will put my law within them, and on their heart I will write it. I will be their God and they shall be my people.” This speaks of our being Born Again.

The Christian communion, takes two elements from the Passover Service: The unleavened bread and the cup of redemption, the cup after supper. Communion is an abbreviated version of Passover using these two elements of the Passover meal.

The fourth cup is taken at the end of the Passover Service . It is the cup of Praise…Christ did not drink this cup….He will drink it in Heaven with us to celebrate our home coming at the marriage super of the Lamb.

Passover thoughts: Why Search for the Afikoman?

After the meal is finished, all the children begin searching for that special hidden matzah.

Remember that middle matzah called the afikomen that represents the Lord? Its unleavened (sinless), striped, pierced, broken, wrapped in linen and Hidden.

The children searched for it and the one who finds it, brings it out of hiding or “resurrects” it and presents it to the father. The father rewards the child who finds it with a few dollars. To me, this is a vivid illustration of the death of Jesus, his burial, his resurrection and the reward of ETERNAL LIFE that God gives each one of us that finds the hidden Bread Of Life.

God Whispers Your Name

Can You Hear HIM Whisper YOUR NAME?

Just how important is your memory?

Without it you no longer would be able to function at your job. On your way home you might have forgotten which daycare you left your child at. You may have forgotten to pick up dinner on the way home. But even if you did pick it up you might not remember where home is.

Not being able to remember will cripple you. Without question, memory is the most precious gift we have from God. Memory is the foundation upon which all your senses rest and have meaning. Memory is the realm in which all your emotions exist and are filtered into actions.

Every society and culture throughout time had ways of reminding themselves nationally of memories that have meaning to all their people. Holidays are the way we use to celebrate and remember events that we care about as a nation. These holidays become traditions etched into the very fabric of our culture and who we are as individual people.

Holidays become days of remembrance that are joined to events of significance we want to honor: Veterans Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Mothers Day, Fathers Day, Easter, Christmas…even down to our Birthdays honoring the day we received life.
God is aware that we also need ways to remember HIM. For without the establishment of holidays that cause us to remember HIM…we will forget God.

One of the greatest holidays born again Jews and Christians should celebrate together is the Holiday of Passover. Why would a Christian want to celebrate this Jewish Holiday? Click below to read the rest of the story.
