Passover: ‘Remember This Day!’

by | Apr 19, 2011 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

donfinto_croppedWe are
grateful for all the traditional Seders that are being held as believers from
the nations are being restored to the biblical Jewish roots of our faith. I
encourage you to participate in them as the Lord leads. Gather your family and
friends together for a meal and “remember this day”—the Passover and
the “last supper.” Passover began at sundown yesterday, April 18.

You may
choose to use a Haggadah (traditional Jewish way of remembering the evening).
Or you may choose simply to read the Passover story from Exodus 12 and the
account of the Passover evening meal with Yeshua and His disciples on the night
of His betrayal (see Matt. 26:17-30) and to celebrate your own deliverance from
slavery through the blood of Yeshua.

Scripture speaks of “bitter herbs and
bread made without yeast” (Ex. 12:8) as a part of the meal. The important
thing is to remember. And let the Holy Spirit guide your evening.

At some
point during the evening, go outside and look for the full moon. Passover comes
always on the 14th of the biblical month of Nisan (also called Abib), always a
full moon. Israel needed no lighted torches on the night of their
deliverance—nor did the Roman soldiers on the night of Jesus’ betrayal.

Remember
the night of Israel’s deliverance and remember the night of Jesus’ betrayal
when He sat with His close friends for the last time.

“This
is my body which is for you,” He said as He took the bread (1 Cor. 11:24).

“This
cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in
remembrance of me,” He said as He took the wine (v. 25).

“I
will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I
drink it anew with you in the Father’s kingdom,” He told His disciples
(Matt. 26:29).

At some
point in the evening you may also want to read aloud the following selection
from one of our Speaking Life e-mails several years ago:

 

On
this day, 3,500 years ago, lambs were slaughtered throughout Goshen in Egypt,

Hyssop
brushes stroked Jewish doorposts with lamb’s blood.

 

The
children of Israel met quietly,

Sequestered
behind their bloodstained doors,

Waiting
to be delivered from 400 years of slavery.

 

On
this night, 3,500 years ago, the Lord went through the land looking for blood
on doorposts.

There
was a great deliverance, a pass-over.

 

Firstborn
sons were slain in houses where there was no blood.

Wailing
and mourning was heard when judgment came in Egypt.

On
this night, 3,500 years ago, freedom was proclaimed in Israel.

 

Firstborn
sons of believing Israel were spared through the blood of the lamb.

 

The
lamb’s blood painted on doorposts brought freedom.

The
wealth of Egypt became the wealth of Israel.

Shouts
of joy were heard as Moses led Israel out of Egypt.

On
this night, 3,500 years ago, the exodus from Egypt came suddenly.

 

For
3,500 years faithful servants of God have remembered this night. 

 

On
this day, 2,000 years ago, another Lamb was slain,

Human
hearts were stroked with Lamb’s blood and freed from centuries of slavery.

 

On
this day, 2,000 years ago, the Lord began to look for Lamb’s blood on the
doorposts of hearts.

There
was a great deliverance—a passing over.

 

On
this day, 2,000 years ago, wealth was restored to the sons of Adam,

Another
Moses led another Israel out of another Egypt.

 

On
this day, 2,000 years ago, Lamb’s blood on the doorposts of hearts brought
freedom.

 

Today,
Lamb’s blood is still found on human hearts.

Deliverance
is found behind a blood-stained door.

If
the doorpost of your heart is stained with Lamb’s blood, have a glorious
Passover.

 

If
not, grab quickly the hyssop and look for the Lamb’s blood.

The
exodus will come suddenly!

 The
Lamb who was slain has risen and will return as King of kings and Lord of
lords!
