Historical background to the Old Testament Passover
Beloved, the ancient children of Israel of the Old Testament were enslaved during their sojourn in Egypt for about four hundred and thirty years (430). Subsequently, through divine intervention they experienced a Passover, followed by an exodus (departure) from Egypt, i.e. through the Red Sea, by the outstretched hand of Yahweh. After the Crossing Over, to the other side of the Sea, Yahweh led them into the wilderness where they spent forty years of wandering, and conditioning, before a new generation met Yahweh’s requirements and entered the Promised Land under the leadership of Caleb and Joshua.
As Israel, our Ancestors from Africa were enslaved for about 400 years or more in the Americas
As the Ancient Children of Israel of the Old Testament, our ancestors from the West Coast of Africa, and Angola were enslaved for roughly four hundred years (400) in the Americas before they were fully emancipated. And this event took place at various periods, For example, some in North America were liberated: between 1777 and 1804; in Brazil, South America, by 1888, in Haiti (i.e. the Spanish West Indies,) by 1793 due to the victorious Haitian Revolution there; and in other colonies in the West Indies and in British Guiana, South America, our ancestors were fully liberated or emancipated from physical slavery on August 1, 1838, by the help of Yahweh…. through His human instruments…. However, no sooner physical slavery had been abolished, than a new form of it emerged, namely, Mental and Spiritual slavery, which has been adversely affecting the off-springs of the once enslaved Africans, during these post emancipation years i.e., 177 years (August 1, 1838- August 1, 2015). But the devil is a liar, for all who believe the Gospel of Christ, from the heart, will be fully emancipated by the precious blood of Christ.
The Precious Blood of Christ for the eradication of the new form of Enslavement on African Descendants and all Nations who believe
Beloved, it was in this current state of Mental and Spiritual enslavement that, we, the Inward Jew Nation in Christ (Guyana, South America,) an arm of the Universal Church of Christ Seventh Day Ministries INC., was birthed by the grace of Yahweh, on September 1, 2013. And we are committed to the preaching of the Gospel of Christ, for the liberation or emancipation of African Descendants and People of all Nations, who believe it from the heart, that we cannot be redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, or from their lifestyle of vanity received by tradition from their fathers: “but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.” [1 Peter 1:18-19]
Requirements that define a Jew inwardly
We, who are born again, are born into the Family of God, and we are complete in Christ, who is the Head of all principalities and powers. Also in Christ, instead of a physical circumcision of the flesh, we are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ,” … and being dead in our sins and the circumcision of our flesh, hath He quickened (made alive) together with Him having forgiven us our trespasses. [Colossians 2:10-12] So with this change of heart by the Spirit, also referred to as “circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit,” [Romans 2:29] defines a New Creation in Christ, namely, “the Jew which is one inwardly.” And because we believe the Word from the heart, and it has become alive in us, we are Inward Jews in Christ, a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people, that we should shew forth the praises of Him who hath called us out of darkness into His marvelous light: which in time pass were not a people, but are now a people of God’ which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. [1 Peter 2:9-10] Amen. Let us give Yahweh the Highest praise, Hallelujah!!!
The plight of those who keep the traditional O T Passover
Beloved, unlike Ancient Israel, whose divinely abandoned O T Passover is history, and therefore has no continuity to bring them into any real, spiritual and personal experience with Yahweh, and with Christ: for us, the Inward Jew Nation in Christ, (Guyana, South America,) and in all Nations who believe; our Passover is Christ, “who is sacrificed for us. [1 Corinthians 5:7] Our N T Passover has continuity through Yahweh and Christ the Son of God, who dwell in each believer by the Spirit. O rejoice with me, and together let us exalt the name Yahweh. Glory to Yahweh. Hallelujah!!!
Unlike Israel whose annual preparation for their Passover and the feast is outer and physical: our Inward Jew’s daily preparation for Christ our Passover is inward, or inner. In doing so, we “Purge out therefore the old leaven (sin on a daily basis) that we may be a new lump, as we are unleavened. It is written, “Therefore let us keep the feast, “not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.” [1 Corinthians 5:6-8]
It is noteworthy that in the Old Testament Dispensation, the lamb that was slain in Israel was “done of the letter,” and that that Dispensation though one of death, written and engraved in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not steadfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; its glory was to be done away.” [11 Corinthians 3:7] This was so because it was a shadow of the real i.e. Jesus the Christ the Lamb of God, in the New Testament Dispensation, who took away the sins of the world. [John 3:16] Unlike the Old Testament Dispensation, the New Testament Dispensation is not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life. [11Corinthians 3:6] And according to the scripture, the latter which remains is more glorious than the former which was done away with. [11 Corinthians 3:11-12] Can you say, Amen? I thank you. Amen. It is written:
By reading Moses only, the veil is still upon the Children of Israel’s heart: and this is what is hindering them from turning to Christ Jesus. Also, unlike the O T Passover which Israel keep: we who have Christ our Passover, have a more that glorious one by comparison. Now, “Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech: And not as Moses, who put a veil over his face that the children of Israel could not steadfastly look to the end of that which is abolished.” [11 Corinthians 3:12]
According to the scripture, “But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same veil untaken away in the reading of the Old Testament; which veil is done away in Christ. “But even to this day, when Moses is read, the veil is upon the heart.” [11 Corinthians 3:14]
Instead of the outward Jewish ritual of circumcision of the flesh, and throwing out all physical things made with yeast or its equivalent from their premises etc; circumcision of the heart, in the spirit, the results of which are: (1) a change of heart, and (2) a mindset renewed by the power of the Holy Spirit; [Romans 12:1-2] are all requirements that clearly define a Jew inwardly in order to receive Yahweh’s approval and praise. [Romans 2:29] A Jew inwardly is anyone in any nation worldwide, who meets these requirements, Israel inclusive. Beloved, this is the Word of God.
Reading the Bible as a whole with special focus on the New Testament Scriptures would help not only Israel to come to acknowledge Christ as their Savior and Lord, but also their Passover, “who is sacrificed for us.” As a result, they would purge themselves from sins such as malice and wickedness; and keep the real and continuing and more established feast of Christ our Passover, ― with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.”
Note: A background of the Old Testament Passover may be in read in Exodus 12:1-20. So we will focus on our New Testament tradition concerning Christ our Passover who is sacrificed for us. Paul the Apostle wrote to the Church at Corinth thus:
Paul’s revelation on the New Testament Passover
“For I have received of the Lord that which also I have delivered unto you, that the Lord Jesus the same night in which He was betrayed took bread: and when He had given thanks he broke it and said, ‘Take it eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.’ After the same manner also He took the cup, when He had supped, saying, ‘This cup is the New Testament in my blood: this do in remembrance of me.’ For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, you do show the Lord’s death till He comes. Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the blood and body of the Lord.” But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation unto himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.” [1 Corinthians 11: 23-30]
My inspirational thoughts and comment
Finally, my Beloved, Jesus the Christ, the Son of God, the Lamb of God, became our Passover when He through the eternal Spirit offered Himself once without spot to God, “to bear the sins of many.” [Hebrews 9:28] And this memorable event took place at Mt. Calvary, outside of Jerusalem, where He was crucified in A.D. 33. Subsequently, He was placed in a tomb from sundown Tuesday (which is the commencement of Wednesday, for the night precedes the day [Genesis 1: 5] where He, as Jonah, spent seventy two full hours “in the heart of the earth,” [Matthew 12: 28-40] before His Father by His Spirit raised Him from the dead. And this event took place, in the end of the Sabbath, which was sometime after sundown Saturday when Sunday actually commences. The Dusk and the night season having passed, and as it began to dawn towards the day light of the first week Mary Magdalene, Joanna and the other Mary and others with them went to see the sepulcher. So when they arrived there an angel said to them, “Fear not for I know that ye seek Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here: for He is risen, as He said. Come see the place where the Lord lay.” [Matthew 28:1-6, Luke 24:1-10]
Beloved, when we celebrate Christ our Passover, and eat of that bread, and drink of that cup, we do it not only in remembrance of His death, burial and resurrection, but also that He is coming back for all of us who believe His Word from the heart.
Yahweh, our heavenly Father, do keep all of us, who believe that we might endure to the end, for we happily look forward to Christ’s return. Grant it Father in Jesus’ name Amen. Shalom.
May Yahweh richly bless you and your household, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
