Passover: "Do this in rememberance of Me" ~ Jesus


Part One: Introduction

God’s ultimate plan in the salvation of mankind begins with, and is built upon, Passover.
The Old Testament Passover (Exodus 12:5-14) was a foreshadowing of events to come and by what means we must be redeemed and forgiven of our sins...”Our deliverance from the penalty of sin and death...death has passed over us.”

The whole of the Word of God rests solidly on Jesus Christ,
being the Carpenter and Fashioner, the Beginning and the End...the Fulfillment of All Things.


Jesus was with God at creation... Jesus is the Beginning of all things:

And God said, Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. ~ Genesis 1:26

All things were made by Him; and without Him, was not anything made that was made. ~ John 1:3

Hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son, whom He hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also He made the worlds. ~ Hebrews 1:2

He was there at our formation, our Carpenter and Fashioner, the very One who breathed into us life (Genesis 2:7). So then, by Him, who made us and gave us life, being formed in His image, shall we also be saved from death, being once again restored to His image....”In Him was life; and the life was the light of men” (John 1:4).

To restore us, once again, He first had to come in our image and live and die as a man...a living sacrifice for our sins. In this way, Jesus became our Passover, the very Passover Lamb that was slain for the sins of the world, so death would no longer have power over us.

My children, Jesus the Christ, Yeshua is His name, is your Passover! ~ God

Purge out, therefore, the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ, our Passover, is sacrificed for us. ~ 1 Corinthians 5:7

Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a Lamb without blemish and without spot. ~ 1 Peter 1:18-19

Forasmuch, then, as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also, Himself, likewise took part of the same; that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil...Wherefore in all things it behoved Him to be make like unto His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. ~ Hebrews 2:14,17

I am He who is called the Lamb of God, the Lamb from Heaven without any spot or blemish, given as a ransom for many so that death will pass over you, and you shall live forever. My blood is the blood shed for you to place upon your door, so you may be spared. No one goes to the Father unless they eat of the flesh of the Lamb, and drink His blood. Do this in remembrance of Me and My covenant with you, for I have already accomplished it and sealed it forevermore upon My rising. I am no longer the Lamb, but the Risen One, the Holy One of Israel, the Lion of the tribe of Judah. The Lamb was slain, My people redeemed in all the earth. I am risen forever and ever, clothed in glory and praise. So too will My people be clothed in glory, for they are cleansed and will be like the angels of Heaven in that Day.
Your Redeemer lives...death has passed over you. The Lamb was slain so you might live. Eat and drink and give thanks in remembrance of Me, and I shall remember you and gather you up and hold you close to Me. Amen. ~ Jesus [Excerpt from “I Am the Passover and Its Lamb...A New Covenant With Men”, Volume One, Letters from God and His Christ]

Jesus’ sacrifice was a supreme act of love for humanity.
Just before the Passover feast that would see His execution, Jesus said that “for this purpose I came to this hour...And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself” (John 12:27, 32). Jesus’ sacrifice is the pivotal event in God’s plan to save humanity. Speaking of His certain death, Christ said He, referring to Himself as the Son of Man, must be “lifted up” (crucified) even as “Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness,” so that “whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:14-16).

This important event, Jesus Christ’s sacrifice on the cross, laid the foundation for the remaining annual Holy Days and festivals. It is the most important step in God’s plan.

Looking at the preceding discussion, I am wondering whether you felt you needed to defend your earlier points about Passover and the need to literally celebrate Old Testament festivals?

I get the impression that there is no disagreement about the absolute necessity of receiving a full revelation of the fulfilment of Passover in Christ. Without the supreme act of sacrifice - and us entering into it daily by choosing to live from His life within us, rather than from our "old man" selves- we are nothing at all.

The only question, I think, comes with the assertion that we "should" be celebrating the literal festivals as laid down by God in the Old Testament. If God has asked you to do this, then I think it would be churlish for any of us to tell you otherwise. In my experience, God often asks particular things of us as individuals because He is dealing with our hearts and an outward action can trigger a inward reaction.

However, I feel a check in my spirit about the idea of laying something like that down as an absolute for all. We need to be confident that He who lives within us will guide us into the paths he has laid out for our lives. I'm NOT talking about wishy-washy liberalism, where "that's great if you want to do it - but I want to do it this way and we all just need to be tolerant".

But the only thing that matters is Christ - who lives in us, and who is able to guide each of us into living out His life as He would have it revealed in each of us.

I think it's something we can all slip into from time to time - feeling like any "action" is in itself an absolute requirement. To get hung up on defending the action seems to me to be missing the point -but we do it because we feel criticsed.

I'm interested to see how "nice" everyone is being about this. I actually feel very strongly that I will not accept any legalistic yoke - but I will welcome any yoke which the Lord asks me to carry. I trust Him to reveal that to me in a way I can grasp and feel confident about - that is the point of being a sheep who can hear His voice. He lives in me and He is able to make me hear Him if I am ready to listen. If He wants ME to physically celebrate all the Old Testament festivals, I am ready to hear it.

I'm sure you would agree that prophets do not replace the direct communication between God and His beloved children through Christ who lives in them?

Beloved Sister, actually in this post I was only sharing the first part of the Passover Bible study as I promised, to give my friends a better and deeper understanding of the importance of this Holy Day fufilled in Christ. Not as a defense for my position. I welcome all sincere questions of faith.
Yes, God has commanded us to keep the Holy Days, and so, we should keep them, but not according to the OT. We are to keep them according to the New Covenant with Jesus as their fulfillment. The OT Holy Days were symbols, "sign posts", a foreshadowing of things to come.
Remember, if God commands it, it is absolute. For He knows us better than we know ourselves and He does not change. So then if the Lord said to keep Passover forever, forever shall we keep it. Only how we keep it has changed with Jesus Himself showing us in Matthew 26: 26-28.
This is not a yoke to carry, it is a blessing, something we should embrace wholeheartedly! And rejoice. The Lord Jesus said "do this in remeberance of Me", and so we do, with all thanksgiving and praise.
In this study I am showing the glory of the Lord by His own Words, which glorify Himself. Like I said their is no debate. I honestly do not understand Christians resistance to keeping the Feasts that God Himself ordained and are and will be fulfilled in Christ. This is the returning to our first love, a way for us to physically come together in action with love in our hearts to give thanks and worship to our Lord for what He has done for us and will shortly accomplish.
To keep the Feasts and Holy Days according to Christ is righteousness and very pleasing to God, but to keep the man-made feasts or "holidays" which originate and are mixed with paganism is abomination to the Lord. So the Lord God is calling us back to pure worship, the worship He wants, the worship He Himself set forth that we should do and how we should do debate, only obediance in love leading into more joy in the Lord to the glory of the Savoir and the Father. Amen.

Excellent post, Timothy. After reading this post on Passover, I've blogged about it as well: here.

As a Jew, it's an awesome to see God un-blinding Jews to Messiah and it's just as amazing to see gentiles being unblinded to the Feasts of the Lord! Great time to be alive and see God moving, right now, today. Awesome.

Isn't it amazing - gentiles who had never heard of God are now saying "Blessed be the Name of the Lord God of Israel". Amazing what the Messiah has done! :-)
