Pesach (Passover) is the most significant and important holiday from among all the holidays that God has commanded the Jewish people to celebrate since their deliverance from Egypt. In the celebration of Pesach, our people commemorate their miraculous release from Egypt through the mighty hand of God.
This holiday has carried a deep prophetic meaning through the ages about the events that took place more than two thousand years ago here in Israel. Just like the spotless lamb sacrificed during Passover by the Jewish people, Yeshua, the sinless Lamb of God, went willingly to the cross to free all of those, who would accept His sacrifice, from the bondage of sin.
In the book of John 1:29 we read “The next day, he saw Jesus coming towards him and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!””
Pesach is a beautiful opportunity for us as believers here in Israel to preach the Gospel through the Passover celebration, with regards to how the decrees and rules concerning this Jewish holiday prophetically point to the sacrificial death of Christ on the cross and of His miraculous resurrection.
This year we decided to celebrate Pesach in a special way, but going back to our Biblical roots. We went into the desert to share the traditional Passover meal together, as well as to celebrate this this very significant event that points to both the exodus of the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt, as well as the exodus of every believer in Yeshua the Messiah from the slavery and bondage of sin.
Some of those whom we had invited to this special event were non-believers, and they got to hear the good news about the sacrifice of Christ, as the spotless Lamb of God, for the very first time! Please pray that the seeds of the word of God that were sown into their hearts will bear fruit unto His Kingdom. Also, please pray for next year’s event, that we will have even more unbelievers in attendance, so that they too will learn about the savingsacrifice of the Lamb of God. Amen!
