Celebrating Passover…is foundational to God’s eternal plan of redemption

5 April 2010

Passover is celebrated in the month of Nisan, the first month of the Hebrew calendar. There certainly are other aspects of life in the Lord that are important, but it is the sacrifice of the Lamb that gives meaning to them all. If it weren’t for the sacrifice of Passover and the blood on the doorposts, Israel would have suffered the same fate as the Egyptians. The promises to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob would have become void. If it weren’t for the Passover sacrifice and the blood on the doorposts, the Torah would not have been given and no other celebrations would have followed. There would have been no basis for Messiah, our Passover, to be sacrificed on the anniversary of this momentous occasion. We would have no hope and remain dead in our sins. But…the command was obeyed and deliverance was accomplished! For us, this is most certainly the first of all months, the first month of the year and the real beginning of all spiritual life! (Michael, B. 1996, First Fruits of Zion Magazine)
