Christ Ahnsahnghong explained to us the true meaning hidden in the Passover of the New Covenant, which now a days people disregard or do not even celebrated as God commanded. As you might know in the Old Testament God commanded the Israelites to celebrate the Passover the night before the last plague of the death of the first born when they were in Egypt. After the Israelites celebrated the Passover as God commanded them, they were able to receive freedom from their slavery.


Exodus 12:1-14 "The LORD said to Moses and Aaron in Egypt, "This month is to be for you the first month, the first month of your year.... The animals you choose must be year-old males without defect.....Take care of them until the fourteenth day of the month, when all the people of the community of Israel must slaughter them at twilight. 7 Then they are to take some of the blood and put it on the sides and tops of the door frames of the houses where they eat the lambs.... This is how you are to eat it: with your cloak tucked into your belt, your sandals on your feet and your staff in your hand. Eat it in haste; it is the Lord's Passover."On that same night I will pass through Egypt and strike down every firstborn—both men and animals—and I will bring judgment on all the gods of Egypt. I am the LORD. The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are; and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt. "This is a day you are to commemorate; for the generations to come you shall celebrate it as a festival to the LORD -a lasting ordinance."


Even though God commanded them to celebrate the Passover as a lasting ordinance, during their journey through the dessert to the promise land they only celebrated the Passover 3 times.


Why? What does this means?

Christ Ahnsahnghong explained the reasons why, so let's see from the beginning what God commanded.


As you saw in Exodus 12:1-14 God gave specific instructions to the Israelites in how to prepare for the Passover.


1. Take a Lamb, 1 year old, without defect.
2. Slaughter it on the 1st month, 14 day at twilight.
3. Put the blood on the door frames of the houses.

Even though this might sound strange in the eyes of the people, but because God commanded them to do it, they did everything. Then what kind of results do you think they obtained? Well, it has to be be good results.


When God came through Egypt to kill all the 1st born, God saw the blood on the houses as a sign and He passover them, no one died. But those who did not celebrated the Passover were all destroyed. As result, they were protected from the plague, they scape death, and they were also free from slavery.


However, the Old Testament is only a shadow and a prophecy; the reality and its fulfillment is found only in the New Testament.

Luke 22:13-20 "They left and found things just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover. When the hour came, Jesus and his apostles reclined at the table. And he said to them, "I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer....And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me." In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you."


At the time of Jesus the disciples were not any more in physical slavery, but there is something that as the disciples we also have to face; death. No one can escape death, in this world we are all slave to sin and death. That is why the night before Jesus was going to be crucified, He commanded the disciples to make preparations for the Passover. As in the Old Testament God gave instructions to the Israelites in how to prepare it and eat it, Jesus also commanded the disciples and gave them specific instructions.


On the 14 day of the 1st month Jesus eagerly wanted to celebrate the Passover with His disciples, because as it is prophesied this is the new covenant that God was going to make with us.



If you celebrate the Passover as Jesus commanded, what do we receive?


Matthew 2:17-28 "On the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, "Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover?" He replied, "Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, 'The Teacher says: My appointed time is near. I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house.' " So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover....While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, "Take and eat; this is my body." Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins."


Through this the first part of the prophecy is fulfilled. In the same way the Israelites in the O.T receive freedom from slavery, now we also receive freedom from sin and death through the Passover of the New Covenant.

However, the story does not end here. What happened to the Israelites after they came out of Egypt? Did they continue celebrating the Passover as God order them?


Let's see

to be continue.......

Col 1:13 For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves,
14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

For our salvation, Christ Jesus was sacrifice of lamb, passover.
I truly give eternal thanks, praise, and honor to our Elohim God.
