What Does Passover Mean For Christians?

What Does Passover Mean If You’re A Christian?

Passover began almost 3500 years ago for the Jewish people to commemorate God delivering them from the slavery of Egypt. It is an awesome story but what does Passover mean for Christians?

You are about to discover the amazing spiritual blessings that will be released into your life when your family begins to celebrate the Passover feast. We even have a simple and delicious guide to help you do it. 

Passover is the first of the Biblical feasts mentioned in the Old Testament. God instructed Israel to celebrate this feast to help them remember how powerful He was and that He had awesome plans for their lives once they were free from Egypt.

That’s fine for Jewish people but what does Passover have to do with Christians receiving blessings from God? Bear with us please and we will answer the question of whether there is any significance of a Christian Passover.

Passover Meal

The central element of this feast is the Passover or seder meal. We will not attempt to cover how to celebrate Passover here. There are three items, however, that I will mention that deserve special attention.

These three items of the Passover meal are the roasted lamb, the matzo (unleavened bread), and the grape juice or wine.

The Lamb

An unblemished lamb was to be kept by the family for four days and then killed and roasted. Its blood was placed on the doorposts of the house so that the
angel of death would “pass over” the house.

As you know, Jesus was referred to as our Passover and the lamb many times in the New Testament.

Our Heavenly Father’s plan from the start was for the male lamb, with no blemish, to represent the Jesus in the Passover, who would come to our rescue about 1500 years later .

There are many unmistakeable connections between Passover holiday and the person of Jesus. It is about Jesus the Lamb of God, shedding His blood, so the penalty of our sin could pass over us. This truth is amazing!

The Matzo

The matzo is the unleavened bread that must be used in this feast. It is broken into 3 pieces which represents the tri-une God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The middle piece is wrapped up in a napkin or cloth and then hidden for the children to find. Does this sound familiar?

The Juice/Wine

The Passover celebration also has 3 instances in which juice or wine is consumed. Together with the matzo, they form the central items used during the Last Supper which Jesus celebrated with His disciples.

These two items became the centerpieces of every Christian’s covenant with Christ which is referred to as communion in many Christian circles.

Passover History

Celebrating the Passover holiday opens the doors of God’s grace in some awesome ways. Here come some amazing things that you probably are not aware of.

The early Christian church celebrated Passover throughout the Roman empire until the Council of Nicaea in 325 AD. Yes, the early Christians observed the Passover celebration for almost 300 years. It was here that the Emperor Constantine prohibited the observance of Passover by Christians.

A study of early church history reveals that the occurrence of miracles and wonders ceased close to this time. This time basically lines up with the start of the Dark Ages. Is this a coincidence? I think not, since these kinds of miraculous signs and wonders are becoming more commonplace in the modern Church as Christians are beginning to recognize the significance of Passover.

St. Patrick?

Let’s quickly move to Ireland and Britain where the Christian Celtic Church was established shortly afterwards. More church history records document powerful men of the Lord such as Patrick and Columba.

The Lord continued to use these men for numerous miracles such as healings and people being raised from the dead. How could this happen? The Celtic Church was able to stay isolated from the restrictions of the Roman Church for quite a while.

But guess what happened in 664AD? The Council of Whitby convened and outlawed the observance of Passover. The Church died in Britain shortly afterwards. Is this just another coincidence?

Our Personal Experience

Finally, let’s move to the year 1994AD. That is when our family started celebrating Passover. We were invited to an event conducted by a group called the Jews for Jesus. I’ll never forget how moved excited I was afterwards. We have observed Passover ever since.

Eighteen years later, we are a family of 12. Our children never get sick and we never have doctor’s bills. All our physical needs have been met and more. We are regularly able to help others and generously support Godly ministries.

We are far from perfect but we are experiencing God’s awesome blessings in so many ways as we enjoy the fun of this Passover holiday and follow God’s calendar and His cycles of blessing.

Jewish Cookbooks Contain Treasure That You Never Imagined

Jewish Cookbooks Contain Treasure?

treasureEveryone has one or more cookbooks in their home. They provide instructions on how to prepare meals and dishes that your family will enjoy.

Did you know that there is HIDDEN TREASURE to be found in Jewish cookbooks meant for your family to enjoy? We have made it as simple as possible for you with our guide to the Biblical feasts for Christians cookbook.

If you have ever looked at Jewish cookbooks before, you know they are not the traditional Betty Crocker types. Don’t get me wrong – I have found Betty Crocker to be very helpful in the past.

You will find out quickly, however, that there is something very different about these cookbooks. They are not just a collection of recipes. Jewish food is closely tied with their culture and especially their holidays.

Where’s The Beef – Where’s The Treasure?

The treasure that will mean experiencing incredible spiritual growth and spiritual healing for your family is hidden in the Biblical feasts.

It is here that I firmly believe many Christians have been missing out on some very important opportunities. The Jewish feasts are awesome chances for times of powerful fellowship with the Lord and receiving more of His restoring grace.

What Are The Biblical Holidays?

Very briefly, these feasting times include the 3 major annual feasts: Passover, Pentecost, and the Feast of Trumpets and Tabernacles. The other times of celebration include the weekly Sabbath celebrations and the monthly Firstfruits celebrations.

So, as you turn the pages of Jewish cookbooks, you are actually opening the doors to celebrating our Creator. He established these times of feasting thousands of years ago.

My Family

From the moment I began looking over one these culinary treasures, an exciting adventure began in my heart. As a Mom of 10 children, I love to find new opportunities for family celebrations and delicious food.

But the Biblical feasts are much more than fun and good food. They are special times that God has asked us to celebrate His presence in our lives “FOR ALL GENERATIONS”.

As our family began this spiritual adventure, I found myself looking forward to these times of the year more than any traditional holiday. I knew in my heart that we were learning about the truest forms of celebration and devotion to our Heavenly Father.

What About The Treasure?

So what is this treasure and how can your family experience it? God has placed within each of His Biblical festivals a powerful spiritual key. They contain spiritual keys meant to unlock the fullness of God’s favor and blessings for us to celebrate and experience year after year.

The 3 Annual Feasts

Passover is a time of cleansing and renewal. This is vital so that we come before the Lord boldly with a clean heart with our prayers.

Pentecost is a time of harvest celebration thanking God for our abundant provision of the past and strategies for our future inheritance.

The Feast of Tabernacles celebrates the joy and blessings of God’s presence and glory in our lives.

Sabbath Celebration

Modern culture has basically discarded this special time of rest. This  is a time of rest from work, a time to give of ourselves to the Lord at the beginning of each week. A modern example of the blessings of the Sabbath is the great success that Chick-Fil-A has experienced by honoring the Sabbath.

Monthly Firstfruits

This time coincides with the beginning of each month. This is an chance to honor the Lord by giving the firstfruits of our labor and blessings to him each month. By doing this, we are making the whole month holy and positioning ourselves for our Heavenly Father’s great favor and prosperity.

What Is The Feast of Tabernacles To the Body of Christ?

What Is The Feast of Tabernacles

What is the Feast of Tabernacles to Christians who are not bound any longer by the law? Find out how this feast keeps us in God’s cycles of blessings and how Jesus connected Himself to this time of feasting. What Is The Feast of Tabernacles

We are in complete agreement with the fact that Christian believers have been set free from the observance of the law. The only problem is that observing the Biblical feasts is not part of the law of Moses.

God described in the book of Leviticus that there were particular times of feasting each year to observe. He said, “These are My Feasts.” We don’t know about you, but if God is throwing a party, we want to be there.

What is the feast of Tabernacles? It is really that simple. We don’t have to get into any deep religious discussions here. There are feasting times that God wanted to establish as an expression of who He is and His desire to share His glory.

Just as Jesus Christ is the ultimate expression of who God is to the world, His times of feasting are actually an expression of who Jesus was to be to the world.

Just because Jesus became the fulfillment of the Jewish feasts doesn’t mean they no longer have a place. Go back in the Old Testament and see what God said about His feasts. He said they were to be observed for all generations.

Specifically, what is the Feast of Tabernacles? It is a 7-day harvest feast which occurs on the 15th day of the seventh month of the Jewish calendar called Tishrei. It’s name in Hebrew is Succot.

The main theme of this feast is building booths or temporary dwellings, which is symbolic of God dwelling with us. Christians obviously know that their bodies have become the dwelling place of the Spirit of God.

Allow us to ask you this question. How much of your life would you say you live in the full knowledge that God’s Holy Spirit dwells in you? We need all the help and all the reminders we can get.

We need these reminders to help break us out of the cycles of spiritual destruction or apathy that constantly swirl around us. God was aware of this and set up His annual feasts to keep us close to Him.

What Is The Feast of Tabernacles
and Jesus?

What is the Feast of Tabernacles and how did Jesus relate to it in the gospel of John? During this feast, the high priest would walk through the city with a pitcher of water to pour it out in the temple. The whole city would follow him and pray with anticipation for rain for future harvests.

During the last day of this feast, Jesus stood up in the midst of the crowd and declared Himself to be the source of living water. He attended His Father’s feast and invited the people to come to Him.

What Is The Feast of Tabernacles To Your Family?

This can be a time of thanksgiving and celebration of God’s glory and presence in your lives. We build “succots” in the backyard using canopies or tents. We decorate them with branches and lights and enjoy delicious food.

What is the Feast of Tabernacles? It is a chance to position ourselves to receive more of God’s abundant grace.

The Promises of God in the Bible – Can You Afford To Ignore Them?

The promises of God in the Bible give us hope to live each day with great expectation. Is that how you are living? I’d be willing to say that 99% of Christians, including myself, have failed to do this consistently. I think we tend to only focus on His promises when some challenge happens to come along.

We cannot afford to ignore His promises because without them we are left to create our own alternatives. The promises of God in scripture are there for us to depend upon and live by. And we can depend on them fully because  the Bible tells us that God is not a liar. It also tells us countless times to put our complete trust in Him and in His promises.

The following passage in Hebrews 11:6 should get yout attention:”… for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Did you get that? Our Heavenly Father wants to reward us and that’s a promise!

If that concept is a bit of a stretch for you, let me ask you this. Do you get excited about opportunities to reward your own children?

I believe that the church is in such a weakened state because we have failed to put our faith in the Biblical promises of God. You see, our level of faith determines whether we experience the blessings of His promises or not.

Another key from this passage is our need to diligently seek Him. God gave us a built-in way to do this starting about 3500 years ago. He simply invited us to join Him by celebrating His feasts and getting in line with his timing.

These aren’t rules and regulations to follow but they are His way of getting us positioned to receive the fullness of His abundant blessings. Through this, we can enter our own promised land, which is the destiny He has for each of us.

Since God is the One who created time, I think it is understandable that He would have His own calendar with His own special times of feasting. As we celebrate these times to honor Him, His promises of blessing found throughout the Bible are unlocked for our benefit and for His glory.

If you choose to ignore His special events, I believe you are also choosing to ignore the promises of God in the Bible.

We invite you and your family to learn more about His Biblical feasts and watch the doors of God’s blessings open up for you to enjoy.

Will Biblical Parenting Help Me Gain Victory Over Today’s Struggles?

3 Minutes Will Change Your Family Forever!

Biblical parenting can certainly supply the tools your family desires to gain victory over the battles confronting you every day. We’ll show you the best ways to get started.

Before we begin, allow me to ask you a question. What is the initial thought or picture that comes to your mind when you hear the word “parent”?

If you said “discipline” or got an image of disciplining, you need to adjust your focus.

It may be time for an attitude revolution, and Biblical parenting is the answer you are seeking.

There are several new and old fads available ranging from authoritarian parenting to permissive parenting.

All you need to do is take a quick look at how children act at the mall to realize the majority of parents are struggling BIG TIME.

The answer is to return to the fundamentals – Bible parenting.

The Bible has plenty to say about parenting.

While there may only be a handful verses that directly address parenting, many passages present useful insight to direct parents.

But who will you turn to as your authority on parenting wisdom?

Is it going to be Dr. Phil, Dr. Spock, Oprah, or your Heavenly Father?

A effective place to begin is finding a several Scriptures on parenting.

One such verse is located in Eph.Ch. 6:4 and says, “Dads, don’t exasperate your children; instead, raise them up in the guidance and instruction of God.”

Now this might appear fairly simple. Do you have any idea how many ways there are for loving parents to provoke their children? There are plenty, and as parents, we have to be careful to avoid them.

The 2nd aspect of this passage demands that you be informed about the Lord’s directions.

Let’s take the 10 Commandments for instance. Could you identify them right now?

Our Supreme Court outlawed them from public schools because they could persuade our sons and daughters to tell the truth, not steal others’ belongings, and also be faithful to your spouse.

I am not kidding.This occurred in 1980.

The idea here is that parents should have an useful plan to follow and stick to, in order to be successful.

There is a great deal in the Bible that is worthwhile for parents.  Hey guys, we don’t need to re-invent the wheel.

Pick a couple of areas in which you hope to see your family progress in and spend some time finding some passages that fit. Apply them consistently and your family will certainly experience the transformations you are expecting.

There are no short cuts to becoming a wise parent, but Biblical parenting is the most helpful means to help you successfully cope with today’s home struggles.

Put some enjoyment and celebration back into your home. Come with our family and start celebrating with the Biblical feasts now.
