An Appointment with God—Passover

This year (2021) Passover is March 28, but it starts at sundown on March 27 because the Hebrew or Biblical day runs from sundown to sundown. Passover is then followed by a 7-day feast called the Feast of Unleavened Bread. Over time, the two feasts have been grouped together and simply called Passover.

But, what is Passover, or Pesach (PAY-sach)? You may know it as something that the Jewish faith celebrates every year, but what and why are they celebrating?

Passover is one of the seven appointed times (meeting appointments with God) that He scheduled with the Israelites (Jewish people) in Lev. 23:1-2. Through each of these meetings, He reveals more of Himself and calls His followers into a deeper relationship with Him. All seven yearly Feasts or festivals commemorate His faithfulness and the many miracles of deliverance that He performed as He set Israel apart as His own special people. They serve to remind us of His holiness, our impurity, and that, despite the disparity between God and man, He wants us to be in fellowship with Him.

But, you ask, “I am a Gentile, why should I care, even if I follow Yeshua as my Savior?” Well, I’m a Gentile as well, so I’ll try to provide a brief answer to your question.

The fact that these festivals are part of the Old Testament, or better yet Bible Part 1, they are often considered as being irrelevant for New Testament, or Bible Part 2, believers.  However, they open up a complete understanding of the continuity of the Scriptures and just how central Yeshua is to all the festivals. And, Yeshua faithfully observed each of these seven festivals. If we are a follower or disciple of Yeshua shouldn’t we follow His example? After all, a disciple emulates his leader.

So, without digging deeper into that question (we’ll cover that in a future post), let’s move on to the subject of this article, the Feast of Passover. God introduced Passover and the Feast of Unleavened bread in Ex. 12:1-20 and Lev 23:5-8. As you probably recall from Sunday school, the first Passover occurred, on the night of the last plague when God was releasing the Israelites from Egyptian slavery. Now, He could have easily accomplished this very quickly without doing the “plague thing.” However, He wanted the Egyptians to know without a doubt that He was greater than every god they worshipped.  Each of the plagues was a direct assault on one of those gods. I encourage you to read the story of the plagues and the first Passover for yourself. It is found in Exodus 6:28-12:32.

The Passover was the defining moment in Jewish history. God called them out of slavery and delivered them from 400 years of bondage in Egypt to give them a land of their own and make them not only a people but a nation. Now, that is something to celebrate! It even surpasses our Fourth of July. 🙂

Even better, though, is that the Passover is prophetic of the coming of Yeshua. It presents a scene or a shadow of something yet to come. The Feast of Passover looks back to the liberation of Israel from the land of Egypt, and it looks forward to the saving work of the Messiah, Yeshua, our Passover Lamb. Because Yeshua came 2000 years ago, we, Jew and Gentile who follow Him, can celebrate Passover as a celebration of His death as our Passover Lamb and Resurrection as our Savior. There is nothing more worth celebrating than the sacrifice of Yeshua. It completed His purpose of proclaiming that the Kingdom of God is at hand and His call for all mankind to repent of our sins and turn to Him, our once-and-for-all sacrificial Lamb.

The celebration of Passover is centered around a meal. What’s a “feast” without food? The story of the first Passover is retold with various food items as symbols of the suffering and sacrifice associated with the first Passover. Leaven is not permitted at the Passover meal and during the following 7-day Feast of Unleavened bread. Leaven, or yeast, symbolizes impurity, sin.  The Passover feast includes a specific remembrance service called a Seder (SEY-der). The order of the service is outlined in a booklet called a Haggadah (HAH-gah-dah), which means “telling”. It guides the service and prayers using the symbolic food items while it explains the significance of the event. A full-blown Passover Seder can last for hours, though most are only an hour or two.

In future posts, I plan to cover the meaning of the symbolic items in a modern-day Seder, Yeshua’s last Seder before His crucifixion, and the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

Until next time…“May the LORD bless and protect you…May He give you Shalom.” (Numbers 6:24-26)

An Appointment with God—Rosh HaShanah

For an overview of God’s Appointed Times, see An Appointment with God—God’s Appointed Times. This post will introduce you to Yom Teruah/Rosh HaShanah.

Yom Teruah/Rosh HaShanah

Yom Teruah/Rosh HaShanah is the first of the fall appointments. This year, it was celebrated starting at sundown on Fri, Sept. 18, 2020, through sundown Sept 19, which corresponds to the first day of the Hebrew month of Tishri as designated in Lev. 23:24 and Num. 29:1-2. (The Biblical day runs from sundown to sundown, not midnight to midnight.)

Yom Teruah (pronounced yohm te-ROO-ah) means “the day of sounding” as it is designated in Leviticus or “Festival of Trumpets.” Rosh HaShanah (pronounced rohsh hash-shah-NAH) means “head of the year.” Huh, head of the year should be in the 1st month, not the 7th, shouldn’t it? That would be logical. However, the rabbis of old gave such significance to this special Shabbat (Sabbath – all God’s appointed times are Shabbats) that they eventually considered it the start of the spiritual new year. In fact, the Hebrew calendar year number changes on Rosh Hashanah, not on the 1st day of the 1st month, Nissan, which occurs in the spring. In addition, Yom Teruah occurs at the end of the harvest period that ends in the fall, which the Torah calls tzeit ha’shanah, or the “end of the year” (Ex 23:16). This suggests the start of a coming new year. So, that is how it came to be called Rosh Hashanah.


The purpose of Yom Teruah is summed up in the words “regathering and repentance.” It is a day to take stock of our spiritual condition and make any necessary changes to ensure that our lives will be pleasing to God in the coming year. It is considered so important that the 40 days starting with the first of the previous month (Elul) through Yom Kippur on the 10th of Tishri is considered a time of spiritual preparation. This is based on a belief by the Rabbis that on the first of Elul, Moses ascended Mount Sinai to receive the second set of the Tablets of the Law and that he descended on Yom Kippur.

In Jewish tradition, the Shofar (ram’s horn) is blown calling all to return to the Lord in repentance. The ten days between Yom Teruah and Yom Kippur are called the Ten Days of Awe or Ten Days of Repentance. This is a period of intense prayer, self-examination, and repentance, which culminates on the fast day of Yom Kippur. Of course, as followers of Yeshua, we know that we do not, in fact cannot, earn God’s forgiveness. He freely provides salvation and forgiveness if we repent (Eph. 2:8-9). But, as we’ll see when we discuss Yom Kippur, our sins always require payment, but Yeshua paid the debt for us. However, Yom Teruah should still remind us of the need to repent of our sins—though we have been forgiven, we are still to be aware of the sins we commit and repent of them.  Of course, we don’t need to wait until Yom Teruah to do so. We should repent of sin as soon as we become aware of it. But, Yom Teruah is a good time for believers to take an accounting of their lives and, if needed, renew their relationship with their Lord and Savior, the Jewish Messiah, Yeshua.

The blowing of the shofar reminds us of an incident in Gen 22. At God’s instruction, Abraham took his grown son to be sacrificed. God provided a ram caught in a thicket by its horns (shofars, as it were) as a substitution—an indication of the future substitution of Yeshua, the Lamb of God (John 1:29, 36).


Yom Teruah is a time of celebration. The special customs observed on Rosh HaShanah include: the sounding of the shofar (the blowing of the ram’s horn is prophetic of the return of Yeshua), using round challah (symbolizes the completeness of the year), eating apples and honey and other sweet foods to initiate the start of a sweet new year, and observing the service of Tashlich.

Tashlich is a relatively recent addition to Jewish practice. While there is evidence of similar practices as early as the 1st century CE, the form we see today probably started around the 16th century. The word derives from Micah 7:18-20 and means to “cast away” or “cast off.” It involves symbolically casting off the sins of the previous year by tossing pieces of bread or other food into a body of flowing water. Just as the water carries away the bits of bread, so too, our sins are symbolically carried away. For believers, the living water represents Yeshua who has already cast our sins away. However, it is an opportunity for believers to acknowledge that He has done so in a symbolic manner. I have performed this “exercise” and found it to be very spiritually meaningful as a visible demonstration of Yeshua carrying my sins away.

Prophetic Fulfillment

Finally, all of the biblical Holy Days have prophetic fulfillment. While the historical emphasis of Yom Teruah is repentance, the prophetic looks to the future day when the Messiah will gather His flock into the Messianic Kingdom. Rosh Hashanah is a perfect picture of the regathering of believers and the Jewish believing remnant by Yeshua at His second coming. (Refer to Isa. 27:12-13; Matt. 24:31; Eph. 5:14; 1 Thes. 4:16-18; Titus 2:13)

Happy Passover and Resurrection Day!

Chag Sameach–Have a Happy Passover and a Happy Resurrection Day!

I love it when Passover, Good Friday, and Resurrection Day coincide on the calendar. (I prefer to call it Resurrection Day over Easter because that is the key event of the day, the truth that it represents.) I believe that all Believers in Yeshua (Jesus) should celebrate both and that we should celebrate them together every year, but we won’t see that happen until Yeshua returns. (Jeremiah 14:16-17; Revelation. 19:9)

Why celebrate Passover? Passover is one of the Lord’s special festivals, His appointed times. It is a celebration of when He freed the Israelites, the Jewish people, from Pharaoh’s bondage. At the same time, He showed His superiority over the Egyptian gods—each plague addressing an Egyptian god. The story of the first Passover is told in Exodus 5:1-15:21. Try reading it sometime and imagine that you are actually there in the midst of the plagues—imagine yourself living through them.

Of course, the key event that we are all familiar with is the placing of the blood of the lamb on the sides and top of their doors (Exodus 12:7). It is a beautiful illustration of what Yeshua does for mankind. The blood of the lamb was sacrificed for the redemption of the Israelites. The blood of the Lamb (Yeshua) was sacrificed for the redemption of mankind. (John 1:29, 36; 1 Pet 1:19).

This event is one of the great historical events that ensured that the line of Yeshua, Jesus, the Jewish Messiah, the Savior of all mankind, was persevered. Is it possible that without the events of Passover, we would not have had a Messiah? We’ll never know and the truth is that God would have brought Salvation to the world regardless. His greatest desire has always been to have an eternal relationship with His creation. However, as we look back on the history of the world as it has occurred, it is undeniable that this is a key event in His plan. It paved the way for Good Friday and Resurrection Day.

OK, so why celebrate Good Friday? Because it is the day that Yeshua paid the ultimate price by submitting to sacrifice on the stake, shedding His blood to pay the price of our redemption from sin.

And Resurrection Day? Without His resurrection on the third day, as predicted in Isaiah 53:10, His sacrifice would have been for naught.

These events occurred first of all for the Jewish people because He is their promised Messiah (Anointed One—Mashiach in Hebrew—Christ in Greek). It brought Salvation to them as promised in Isaiah 53:6-8. Secondly, it occurred for the rest of mankind (Gentiles), so that we could be adopted into Father God’s family and one day spend eternity with our Creator (Romans 8:15; Galatians 4:5; Ephesians 1:5, 2:11-20; Titus 3:7).

Thus, these two events enable all mankind, including you and me, to become part of God’s family and have the power of His Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) enabling us to live in right standing with God—provided we accept Yeshua the Messiah as OUR Savior. Have you? There is no better time than right NOW!

So, again I say, Happy Passover and Happy Resurrection Day!

Until next time…May the LORD bless and protect you…May He give you Shalom.” (Numbers 6:24-26)


Shabbat Shalom

habbat Shalom on this beautiful Sat., April 4. Even if your sky where you are is gray and/or it’s raining, it’s still beautiful because it is the Lord’s Day!

Shabbat comes from the Hebrew root Shin-Beit-Tav, meaning to cease, to end, or to rest.

Shalom means “peace”, but not just the absence of strife, it means complete peace. It means peace, safety, harmony, wholeness, completeness, prosperity, welfare and tranquility and it can refer to either peace between two entities, or the well-being, welfare or safety of an individual or a group of individuals.

Shabbat Shalom, literally, “Sabbath peace” or “peaceful Sabbath”, means something to the effect of “Have a Sabbath full of peace, safety, harmony, wholeness, completeness, prosperity, welfare and tranquility.”  Wow, that is a mouthful! So, where does that all-encompassing peace come from? The only source of such all-encompassing peace is your Father, God, the creator of the universe. Nothing else gives the peace that He does and He does it now and forever, as it says in Ps 121:

I look up toward the hills.
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
who made heaven and earth.

He will not allow my foot to slip;
He who keeps me will not sleep!

Behold, He who keeps me [His child, a follower of Yeshua]
will neither slumber nor sleep.

The Lord is my protector;
the Lord is my shade on my right hand.

The sun shall not strike me by day,
nor the moon by night.

The Lord will keep me from all harm;
He will protect my life.

The Lord will protect me in all that I do
from this time forth and forevermore.
(Ps 121. ESV, NET, emphasis mine)

Then why are we experiencing a worldwide pandemic? Nowhere in Scripture does God promise that we will be free from trials, from problems. But He does promise to give us His peace in the midst of them and, if we are truly His follower, to use them for our good, to teach us to rely on Him in all circumstances. (1 Pet 1:6; James 1:2-4; Rom 8:28)

Until the next time…May the LORD bless and protect you…May He give you Shalom. (Numbers 6:24-26)

Third Temple Alert: Police Authorize Passover Sacrifice Next to Temple Mount

Monday, March 26, 2018 |  Israel Today Staff

Religious Jewish factions say they are moving ever closer to the realization of the Third Temple in Jerusalem.

The latest evidence of this is police authorization, granted on Sunday, for a Passover sacrificial ceremony to be held just tens of meters from where the Second Temple once stood.

Religious groups have been holding public Passover sacrifices, in accordance with the biblical outline, for years. But never before have they been permitted to conduct the ceremony so close to the Temple Mount, which the Muslims claim as their own, even as they deny the holy site holds any religious or historical significance for the Jewish people.

Last year, the Passover sacrifice was conducted in the courtyard of the nearby Hurva Synagogue in the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem’s Old City, some 450 yards from the Temple Mount. This year, it will take place at the Davidson Center, an archaeological park situated at the southern foot of the sacred plateau, and just below the Al Aqsa Mosque.

Why Observe Passover

The following post was written by Les Lawrence, Voice of Christian Zionists on 3/24/18.  If you have not already made arrangements to attend a Messianic Jewish Passover Seder or even a demonstration Seder, I encourage you to do so.

Until next time…May the LORD bless and protect you…May He give you Shalom.” (Numbers 6:24-26)


Why Observe Passover

Dry Bones No Bread

Why should Christians observe Passover, starting next Friday night, March 30? The cartoon above inserts a little humor “explaining” why the first Passover is still remembered. Of course, the real reason centers on the lamb sacrifice that pointed to the reality of the death of the Messiah as the Lamb of God.

The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” John 1:29

As a Christian Zionist, I consider Passover as the hinge of history. I don’t do eggs or bunnies. Is the story of the exodus from Egypt 3,500 years ago the main point, or was it a preview of the event to occur thousands of years later? The answer is: Yes! It was the main starting point of Yehovah’s plan of redemption of the blood of a lamb atoning for sin. But, it is also the ending point with the actual sacrifice of the Son of God in our place.

who does not need daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifices, first for His own sins and then for the people’s, for this He did once for all when He offered up Himself.Hebrews 7:27

By that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.Hebrews 10:10

The cross is often called the hinge of history, and rightly so, but it was not the method of His death, but the fact of Yeshua’s death that is the hinge. There are three parts to a hinge. One part attaches to the door and another to the doorframe, but the pin holds it together. There are also three parts to Passover: the lamb, unleavened bread, and first-fruits. The three parts are clearly seen in Yeshua.

First, He was sinless (unleavened by sin) and chose to deny His own will and submit to the Father’s will in the Garden of Gethsemane temptation. He reversed the curse of  “self-will.” Three times! Then He willingly laid down His life at His execution, as the Lamb of God, which was the pin of the hinge.

But it would have all been meaningless if He had remained dead. The third and most critical part of the hinge is that He was raised from the dead, defeating death itself! As the personal fulfillment of first-fruits, He paved the way for all who follow Him to also be raised from the dead to life eternal. Hallelujah to the Lamb of God!

And with great power the apostles gave witness to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And great grace was upon them all.Acts 4:33

Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem (Guest Post)

I haven’t posted in awhile, so here is a good post from a friend’s blog (For Zion’s Sake).  I’ve added a comment expanding the scope of his first paragraph.

Until next time…May the LORD bless and protect you…May He give you Shalom.” (Numbers 6:24-26)



“Pray For The Peace Of Jerusalem”

Posted: 17 Aug 2017 06:27 AM PDT

The title verse from Psalm 122:6 is very familiar for all those who love and support Israel. Most commonly it is interpreted that we should pray for God’s hand of protection over Israel and the Jewish people world wide. This certainly is a correct interpretation but I have learned the “Hebrew” interpretation is much broader. The Hebrew definition of peace in this verse encompasses all aspects of a Jewish person’s life to include their moral, spiritual, emotional well-being in addition to their physical safety. [WJBsTurn note to the reader: The full definition of “shalom” (peace) applies to “all aspects of every believer’s life.”]
An intriguing headline in the news last week quoted Governor Eddie Calvo of Guam as his island country has become part of the nuclear threat from North Korea. Governor Calvo said, “Like Israel, we have had a lot of practice here.”
Governor Calvo’s comment was illustrating that Israel lives every day with constant threats from enemies surrounding them and living in Israel. These constant threats have caused Israel to build a wall in Jerusalem to prevent Palestinian terrorists from entering Jerusalem from the West Bank. Also, an underground wall is now under construction along Israel’s border with Gaza to prevent Hamas terrorists from entering Israel through tunnels. The Israeli military and police are always on high alert and plane passengers traveling to Israel are questioned thoroughly about their reason to visit Israel and their itineraries.
Well, how do Israelis respond to living with the constant threat of their enemies? Overall, and this might surprise you, they respond with love and generosity to those who are hurting around them even their enemies. Through “Operation Good Neighbor” the Israeli Defense Forces have extended humanitarian aid to Syrians including medication, clothes, fuel, and food. Since August 2016 more than 110 aid operations of various kinds have been conducted.
Israel even reached out and granted political asylum to an Iranian journalist facing the death penalty. Neda Amin had the boldness to write a column for an Israeli media website. As a result, she was facing the death penalty for co-operating with Israel in Iran. Amin said, “I was in danger and the State of Israel saved me.”
These examples illustrate how important it is for all of us to “Pray For The Peace Of Jerusalem” each day for the total well being of all Israelis. Bless His Holy Name!
May The Lord Bless You This Day And Every Day,

Hadar Levusah

Until next time…May you have a blessed Ressurection Day as you celebrate Passover and the Ressurection of your Savior and Lord; May the LORD bless and protect you…May He give you Shalom.” (Numbers 6:24-26)



Today, April 11, is the first day of Passover.  Passover started at sunset last night. I was planning to write something about Passover, but yesterday I received the following from a friend, Dawn Uhrick, and decided it was worthy of passing on.  I do want to point out that, while Passover, as well as the other Feasts in the Bible, are traditionally considered “Jewish” feasts/holidays/celebrations, you will not find them called such in most, if not all, translations of Scripture.  Adonai repeatedly calls them “His feasts”, or when correctly translated, “His appointed times.”  They are specific times He set aside for us to meet with Him.  They are times of remembrance with specific prophetic meanings related to His Son, Yeshua the Messiah.

Shalom! Sundown tonight begins Passover, the time when Jewish people all over the world and in Israel remember the mighty hand, awesome wonders, and outstretched arm of G-d! In the sight of all of the nations, G-d saved Israel from the oppression and slavery of Egypt. At each Passover Seder, the story of Israel’s exodus from Egypt is retold, and Israel remembers the blood of the Passover Lamb as the sacrifice which allowed the people of Israel to be passed over by the angel of death.

Over a thousand years after Israel’s historic exodus from Egypt, Yeshua chose an intimate Passover Seder as His last supper, explaining to his closest friends that the unleavened, broken matzah of the meal represents his own bodily sacrifice, and the blood represents His own blood, poured out for the forgiveness, deliverance, and life of many.  He then commanding His disciples to “do this (the Passover Seder) in remembrance of Me.” (See Luke 22, Mark 14, and Matthew 26).

Today, every year during the Passover Seder, Jewish people around the world prophetically break a central piece of matzah (the afikomen, meaning “arrived” or “the coming one”), which is striped, pierced, and bruised (see Isaiah 53:5). The afikomen is then “hidden away” during the Seder, just as Yeshua temporarily left the earth and ascended into heaven after He died and was raised from the dead. The children present during the Seder then diligently search for and find this afikomen and it returns at the end, just as Scripture promises that Yeshua will come and return yet again!  The children also search outside of the front door of the Seder home with great anticipation for the prophet Elijah, knowing that Scripture promises that Elijah will herald in the coming of Messiah (Malachi 4:5).  All of those present then end the Seder by proclaiming, “Next Year in Jerusalem!,” knowing that Passover also foreshadows the coming future eternal kingship and ultimate deliverance of G-d under the reign of His promised Messiah!  Indeed, as Believers in Yeshua, we know that there is yet another Passover Seder to come, the Marriage Supper of the Lamb when Yeshua returns to earth to reign forever in praise (Revelation 19)!

A Call to Stand with Israel…in this Passover Season!

Scripture promises that one day all of Israel [Jewish people, Adonai’s Chosen People] shall be saved (Romans11:26) and that the salvation of Israel is also directly linked with Yeshua’s return and with resurrection and life from the dead (Romans 11:15, Matthew 23:37-39)!  We have the tremendous historic privilege today of joining in G-d’s Kingship purposes for Israel and advancing the knowledge and Kingship of Yeshua as we prepare for His ultimate return. For the first time in over two thousand years, Israel is a nation yet again, and the Hebrew language has been restored. Spiritually, there are now over 20,000 Jews in the land of Israel who now believe in Yeshua as the Jewish Messiah and are waiting to welcome His return!  But many still do not know Him. We live in unprecedented times. More than ever, the world needs the return of Yeshua, and Israel needs the salvation of Messiah and the strong arm of G-d to move on their behalf in the sight of all the nations! And you, my beloved brothers and sisters, have a vital role to play!

Until next time…May the LORD bless and protect you…May He give you Shalom.” (Numbers 6:24-26)
