Passover is traditionally known as a time of sacrifice atonement and judgement. This is why the blood is smeared over the door posts and it is also why traditionally a lamb is killed and eaten. We also get the leaven out of our houses and out of our lives. But believe it or not the obedience to Yahweh brings many blessings. I was sent this music video from a friend who is an orthodox Jew, by the name of Yonah. This music video really showed me what the Israeli people go through every day surrounded by people whom wish to kill them. (Please watch the music video before reading the rest of this blog)
In watching this video I see a lot of symbolism of Yeshua the Messiah, and our orthodox brethren really do not even see it, with the unintentional symbolism of the son resurrected in the music video to the rebuilding of the Temple through the prayer sheets flying around all over the place and Yahweh stopping those missiles from hitting Jerusalem. The enemies of Yahweh will be brought to judgement, the Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's of the world, the Kim Jung Ungs of the world will all be put to the judgement of Yahweh during the Passover.
The Messiah will come and he will come back soon and he will answer the prayers of these people in Jerusalem and in the Holy Land, their enemies will be a footstool at their feet, when Yeshua comes back.
I ask that no matter what day you start Passover on that you please pray for the people of Israel, pray for our very own military that is fighting overseas right now so you can celebrate Passover, pray that Yahweh's shield is around them, pray for the children who are sick with cancer, pray for the orphan who lost their family, pray for the mother who found out she only has a short time to live, pray for the father who lost his job, pray for the widows, pray for the teachers, pray for the weak, pray for the lame, pray for those who are searching, pray for the addicts, pray for the priests, pray for the the entire world this Passover, pray that Yahweh puts his hands upon them and that he protects his people against the tyrants and the dividers and the snakes and those hiding within the shadows. Pray that the blessings abound for those whom seek him even if they are wrong in their analysis, pray that Yahweh continues to teach them during this time of judgement. I ask that we not be legalistic however we be people with love in our hearts whom are not prideful, not boastful, whom do not demand our own way and whom are humble, loving, caring and kinf
