Passover#2…The Transition: Lion to the Lamb

As Jesus came into Jerusalem, we see the Lion of Judah, that stood before the Gates of Hell six months earlier, proclaiming He is the Great I Am, now changing His focus as He heads to the Passover table. The Lion was becoming the Lamb (a first fruits offering) at this last supper (Ex. 12:21). It is here, when Passover, the season of first fruits is celebrated (1 Cor. 15:20). It begins a new season, when the old season is left behind and a new season begins. Jesus knew, Passover was a new beginning for His disciples, but they weren’t getting any of it. The Passover table is a place we go, as Jesus did, to move into a new season of our lives (1 Cor. 5:7). Jesus (Yeshua) as the fulfillment of Passover, by His death and resurrection, takes all the leaven (sin/shame) out of our lives and creates a new life through His sacrifice. He came to the Passover table with fervency and a deep understanding of its importance (Luke 22:15). Jesus knew, by yielding and submitting His heart to His Father, His purpose and calling would be fulfilled.

The Passover table was where the blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony resided (Rev. 12:10-11). By positioning Himself at the Passover table, He aligned Himself with what was spoken in Ex. 12:21, “Go and select lambs for yourselves according to your clans, and kill the Passover Lamb.” It was here that Jesus became the sacrificial Lamb that was needed for all mankind. He understood this was where He needed to be for this purpose and calling to be fulfilled. But He needed to agree and declare it, “For this is my blood of the new covenant which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” The old covenant was written on stones but this covenant is written on our hearts (Heb. 10:16). A new covenant that gives us all a fresh start and in so doing, He fulfills Passover. Not only does Yeshua fulfill Passover for all mankind, He also fulfills your personal Passover. During this Passover season receive a new, a fresh release of your calling and purpose.

Question: Have you allowed Jesus (Yeshua) to fulfill the deliverance Passover provides from your old lifestyle and release the new life found in your purpose and calling?

Key Thought: As we come to the Passover table this season, lets change our focus from a self serving person, stuck in the past to a humble person fulfilling your purpose and calling on your knees.

  1. 1&2 on the passover , my new purpose for life comes from philippians 3: 8-11. Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith— that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, that by any means possible I may attain the resurrection from the dead. From this i gave up my old self and started a new . Sing praises to the Lord during this passover. Give the Lord , all the glory during these troubled times . The enemy will not pull me down towards his gates. I will stand firm up on the rock of salvation. May God Bless. Louie
