Passover is a Celebration of Jesus!

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 into the fullness of 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.  Passover is the “JESUS” Celebration! The more you understand Passover, the more you appreciate Jesus! If you don’t understand Passover, you have a hard time fully understanding what Jesus did. As you celebrate Passover, you are declaring your faith in the power of His Blood and His redemption. That’s why one of strangest things in the world is that Christians all over the world have accepted Satan’s lie that Passover is not a “Christian” thing! Satan tries to steal away Passover, because he knows the celebration of the Blood releases power! When the celebration of Passover was stolen away, the power left! But when Passover is restored, the power RETURNS!

The Good News is—God is RESTORING Passover! All over the world churches are again celebrating Passover! And the POWER is returning! We invite you to celebrate the power of Jesus’ Blood. We invite you to join with Christians all over the world in the restoration of Passover. Join with us in proclaiming: We are REDEEMED by the BLOOD OF THE LAMB, out of the hand of the enemy!

As we take communion today and the next 40 days, let’s remember the BLOOD OF THE LAMB and Celebrate Jesus and declare:

Jesus is the Passover Lamb that has been slain for me!

He came as the LAMB of God for me!

His Blood redeemed me!

By His Blood judgment turned away from me!

By His Blood the power of the enemy is broken off of me!

By His Blood I am released from bondage and oppression!

By His Blood I am set free to enter into God’s Promise!
