PASSOVER SEDER – MONDAY APRIL 14 @ 6PM COME CELEBRATE THE FEAST!! IN HONOR OF OUR SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST
CELEBRATION OF DELIVERANCE
In Exodus 12:3-14 we read, "The blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you live; and when I see the blood I will pass over you, and no plague will befall you when I strike the land of Egypt... This day will be a memorial to you, and you shall celebrate it as a feast to the Lord. Throughout your generations you are to celebrate it as a permanent ordinance."
As we approach the celebration of PASSOVER we must remember that Passover is a celebration designed by God! This Feast and Event was given to increase our faith and prepare us to enter in the fullness His blessing! Passover was commanded by God for the Jews in the Old Testament to teach them the importance of redemption by the blood. But it was also observed by Christians in the New Testament to remember and understand God’s redeeming work! The Bible tells us it is to be a permanent ordinance… a celebration for all time!
Many Christians don’t realize that Passover is just as much a New Testament Feast as an Old Testament Feast! It’s all through the New Testament! Jesus and the apostles all celebrated Passover! The original Lord’s Supper was a Passover meal! The apostles taught the Gentile churches to celebrate Passover. In 1 Corinthians, Paul wrote to a predominantly Gentile church and said: "Christ OUR Passover Lamb has been slain, therefore let us celebrate the feast!" For hundreds of years, Passover was the most important yearly celebration in the early church!
Do you see how God chose to connect Jesus with Passover? It’s no wonder John introduces Jesus by saying, "Behold the Lamb!" It’s no wonder Paul writes "Christ, our Passover Lamb, has been slain!" Passover is all about Jesus! Do you see that Passover is all About JESUS?
He came as the LAMB of God!
His blood redeems US!
By His blood… judgment turned away!
By His blood…the power of the enemy is broken!
By His blood…we are released from bondage and oppression.
By His blood…we are set free to enter into God’s Promise!
Passover is the "JESUS" Celebration! (Please RSVP by April 8th.)
