Pesach - Passover
Updated: Aug 9
In the Jewish Biblical literature Satan is not seen as the fallen angel trying to overpower G-d. Jews see Him, G-d of Avraham Yitzchak and Ya’akov, as all-powerful so what can Satan do?
Christians believe that humans are born in sin as soon as the baby takes its first breath. Jews believe that humans have a choice.
Christians believe that only through the Messiah (and his crucifixion) they can be free from sinning. But what they do not understand is, that Jesus, is teaching them, is showing them, how to walk, with the flesh being crucified, so, they can lean on G-d, and allow Him, to write the law upon their heart! As soon as the carnal thinking is “crucified” they are ready to join us, the Jews, to walk together, and follow the ancient paths, where we can find rest for our soul. No longer sojourners, but circumcised in the heart, ready to join Pesach.
Verses 43 – 51 contain details about how and who could celebrate Pesach. Only those who have been circumcised could celebrate Pesach, and no one who was uncircumcised could eat the Pesach meal.
Shemot 12 ( Exodus 12)
And when a ger shall sojourn with thee and will keep the Pesach ( Passover) unto Hashem, let all his zachar receive bris milah, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one that is native born in ha’aretz; for no arel (uncircumcised person) shall eat thereof.
Jews believe that redemption can come from true repentance, prayer, and acts of charity. But what they do not recognize is that every time it is Pesach, - Then Moses summoned all the elders of Israel and said to them, "Go at once and select the animals for your families and slaughter the Passover lamb.
Take a bunch of hyssop, dip it into the blood in the basin and put some of the blood on the top and on both sides of the doorframe.- But the Jews have been told to mark their doors with the blood of a lamb they've sacrificed — the Passover offering — and so God “passes over” their homes. Exodus 12:6-7 It also points out to
what Jesus did at the cross He gave His life as the lamb of G-d, by giving HIS blood. According to the New Testament.
What is the meaning of the Lamb of G-d? He shows the Christian believers that if they follow His steps they are free from carnal thinking, and He can lead them to Torah. As long as He walked on earth, His teachings never would go against Torah. In the contrary He brought them to Torah. Hear Oh Israel Thy G-d Is One!
One G-d One Heart
The Exodus Hebrew (יציאת מצרים, Yeẓi’at Miẓrayim: lit. 'Departure from Egypt')
“In Biblically times when a person sinned, they would take a lamb to the temple to sacrifice,” “To be called a Lamb of God means that G-d gave His Life, His Right Hand and called him Jesus ( anointing one and savior) to be killed like a lamb for people’s sins so they could live forever.”
There are many passages in Torah mention “lamb” referring to a sacrifice.
Shemot: 12 And Hashem spoke unto Moshe and Aharon in Eretz Mitzrayim saying,
2 Hachodesh hazeh (this month) shall be unto you the beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you.
3 Speak ye unto kol Adat Yisroel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a seh (lamb according to the bais avot, a seh for each bais;
4 And if the household be too small for the seh (lamb let him and his neighbor next unto his bais take according to the number of the nefashot; every ish according to what he eats shall make up your count for the seh.
5 Your seh (lamb ) shall be tamim (without blemish), a zachar (male) within its first year; ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats;
6 And it will be with you for mishmeret (examination, checking for blemishes) up until the fourteenth day of the same month; and kol Kehal Adat Yisroel shall slaughter (shachat) it in the afternoon [before dark].
7 And they shall take of the dahm and strike it upon the two mezuzot (doorposts) and on the mashkof (lintel) of the batim (houses), wherein they shall eat it.
8 And they shall eat the basar in that night, roasted over eish, and matzot; and with maror they shall eat it. [See where Jesus alludes to this verse Yochanan 6:53-54
9 Eat not of it raw, nor soaked or boiled in mayim, but roasted over eish; this includes its rosh with its legs, and with the inner parts thereof.
10 And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the boker; and that which remaineth of it until the boker ye shall burn with eish.
11 And thus shall ye eat it; with your robe girded up [i.e., pulled up and tucked in under the belt, for travel], your sandals on your feet, and your walking staff in your yad; and ye shall eat it with urgent haste; it is Hashem’s Pesach.
It was to be eaten in a single house. It was a family celebration, not one involving a gathering of families (community).
The people were not to bring forth any of the flesh outside of the house. The meal was not to be shared with others outside the household.
The people were not to break any bone of it. This is a foreshadowing of the Lamb of G-d, Jesus Christ, who was prophesied to have no bones broken in His death (Yochanan 19:36).
Both, Jew, and Christian have to leave Egypt, representing (the ways of the) world and our carnal thinking. But Egypt also needs to come out of our thinking. Many Christians think, they need to convert the Jew to follow Jesus!
No, G-d took care of us!
G-d Said That He Would Circumcise the Hearts of the Israelites. (Deuteronomy 30:6)
Devarim 30:6 And Hashem Eloheicha will circumcise thine lev, and the lev of thy zera, to love Hashem Eloheicha bekhol levavcha uvekhol nafshecha; that thou mayest live [Yn 3:3].
Jews went through the Jordan River ( River Of Death) The priest stood in the Jordan river near the ark of HIS presence ( Blessed Be His Name) until the entire Nation had crossed over. Today Rabbi’s help the others as through divine teachings the heart is being circumcised.
Christians go through the Desert Represents : Lonely times, and being tested in difficult circumstances. The desert is hot during the day and cold during the night. It is a dry place and it is hard to be there.
Gethsemane ( Hebrew word for crushing olives)
Christians can learn from Joseph’s story:
PIT = People In Training
Learning to serve in the worst and challenging circumstances
You are death to carnal thinking, and you find your divine task.
Golgotha ( Hebrew word for skull ) <> totally ( being) without flesh)
So, both, Jew and Christian, serve the same G-d. And in HIS wisdom, ( Blessed Be His Name) He gave HIS own life and called it the Son, why? Because He is teaching the Christian, how to find HIM, and become a son too. Jesus is called the first son and Christians can become sons too! Israel is in fact their oldest brother!
Jews do not need to repent for Jesus, they repent for The G-d Of Avraham Yitzchak and Ya’acov.
He promised us, in Torah, to circumcise our heart. He will take care of that journey.
So dear Christians, let all of us, Jew and Christians, allow HIM to do, what only HE can do!
In HIS good time both camps will recognize The LORD - as the - ONE -TRUE G-d! Abba Ruach HaKodesh and בן Ben = ONE

Leviticus 16:29 mandates establishment of this holy day on the tenth day of the seventh month as the day of atonement for sins. It calls it the Sabbath of Sabbaths and a day upon which one must afflict one's soul. Leviticus 23:27 decrees that Yom Kippur is a strict day of rest.
Yom Kippur is the holiest, most important day of the year in Judaism, known as the “Day of Atonement.” It begins at sundown Tuesday, October 4, 2022, and ends Wednesday evening, October 5th—the last of the ten days of penitence that began with Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year).
