The Feast of Passover, Part 1
Passover reaches deep in the faith of Biblical Christians. It is a major element of the foundation of their salvation. What we are going to see is a great correlation between the Pascal Lamb and the Messiah, as the blood of the lamb covered the Israelites and protected them from the coming judgment when they came out of Egypt, in the same way the blood of the Messiah covers us and protects us from the coming judgment.
This great Feast of Passover speaks of redemption: the history of redemption that preceded and also followed the Passover, there we are going to situate the Passover in history and we are going to see something truly beautiful, God prepared for us, right from the beginning and throughout history, the way of salvation, how much He desires to share with us our eternal future by sending His Son, the Pascal Lamb for our redemption.
Welcome to Messianic Viewpoint with Messianic leader, Jacques Isaac Gabizon and this 3 part series on the Feast of Passover. Be blessed as you listen and shalom.
Chapter 5 of Numbers made open and public internal sin and now, having dealt with that, God continues to stress holiness, offering each person, man or woman the opportunity to be set apart, to become, if you will, a Nazirite and to be dedicated to the service of God. Though not from the Levitical priesthood, here was the opportunity to demonstrate a holy living which would set them apart from the others. In that respect Lord, we want to be pious and separate ourselves from the world; yes to live in it but not to be part of it. Yes, the hair had to left long and yes, you couldn’t eat even the peel of a grape and yes, you couldn’t touch a corpse. We too must be different from the world. Instead of our hair, let’s let our love grow long and strong, let us rejoice in the vineyard of God’s harvest and let us not touch sin because it is the seed of death. Let us now live in the freedom of serving and dedicating our lives to You. We pray you will be blessed as you listen to the New Year's message in the Book of Numbers (our current study series at Beth Ariel Congregation) with Messianic leader, Jacques Isaac Gabizon, shalom.
