Chag Pesach Sameach! Happy Passover!
Passover begins tonight, Wednesday April 5th, 2023, and runs for seven consecutive days, until April 12th, 2023.
As we prepare to enter into the Passover season tonight, it's important to prepare ourselves not only with all of the necessary elements to perform the Seder dinner in our homes, but to prepare ourselves SPIRITUALLY, entering into Pesach with clean hands and pure circumcised hearts before ADONAI, getting rid of all LEAVEN of SIN from our lives!
"Get rid of the old yeast, so that you may be a new unleavened batch—as you really are. For Messiah, our Passover Lamb, has been sacrificed." 1 Corinthians 5:7 Now that we are out of Egypt, we celebrate Pesach laying back and RESTING IN THE REDEEMING WORK OF YESHUA! Make sure to scroll to the end of this message, for a SPECIAL GIFT that Dr. Hadassah & Elihana created for you to ENJOY throughout this special Pesach Season!
The basics of Pesach Celebration:
Tell The Story: What is the Haggadah? It is a written guide to the Passover Seder. The word Haggadah means “telling” in Hebrew. It is the explanation of the Israelites’ Exodus from Egypt. So make sure to read through the actual Biblical story, in Exodus 12.
The Elements in the Seder Plate: Maror, Parsley (Karpas), Bitter Herbs, Charoset, Shank Bone, Matzot (plural for Matzah), an egg, and wine.
Pesach is not complete without YESHUA: He is the Passover LAMB! With His blood applied to the door posts of our hearts, all areas of our lives, our homes and everything that pertains to us, will allow the plagues of these Last Days to PASS OVER our LIVES! This is why it's so important to keep ourselves pure before the LORD, and staying faithful to obeying ADONAI at all times. We need wisdom and discernment in these last days, to know when to move and in which direction to go in! We need to be like the sons of Issachar, who understood the times they were living in, and knew what to do about it: "The children of Issachar, men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do..." 1 Chronicles 12:32
During the Seder, we take the 4 cups remembering the mighty acts of ADONAI for the people of Israel, and what He has done, not only for the children of Israel, but also for us TODAY.
It's important to understand the meaning behind these 4 cups we drink based upon this amazing promise found in Exodus 6:6
1st Cup > SANCTIFICATION: "Bringing out from under the yoke of the Egyptians"
2nd Cup > DELIVERANCE: "I will free you from slavery"
3rd Cup > REDEMPTION: "I will redeem you with an outstretched arm"
The 3rd cup is always partially full because it is also the Cup of Judgment. The Lord will judge the Egyptians according to their rebellion and for their false gods.
"I will take you as my own people, and I will be your God. Then you will know that I am the LORD your God, who brought you out from under the yoke of the Egyptians." Exodus 6:7
4th Cup > RESTORATION: "I will take you as my people" (Verse 7)
The 4th cup is full, because it is also the Cup of Hallel (Praise). And this is the cup where Yeshua said He will NOT drink from it again, until He returns, and until we say "Baruch Habah B'Shem Adonai" (Blessed is He Who Comes in the Name of the LORD.)
"I tell you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it anew with you in My Father’s kingdom.” Matthew 26:29
A SPECIAL PESACH GIFT FROM US TO YOU:
Dr. Hadassah & Elihana have worked very hard to create this beautifully designed DIGITAL HAGGADAH for you to enjoy throughout this special Pesach Season!
Make sure to scroll through the Digital Haggadah and even DOWNLOAD your own copy so you can print it out and use it in your home Seders, and easily share with others!
COME TO THE TABLE!
We pray that you would be committed to our work of restoration for such a time as this! “You shall observe the Feast of Unleavened Bread (Passover); for seven days you are to eat unleavened bread, as I commanded you, at the appointed time in the month of Abib, for in it you came out of Egypt. And none shall appear before Me empty-handed.” Exodus 23:15
We focus first in the message of Yeshua the Messiah to the Jewish people and for the edification of the Believers in the Body of Messiah, with a call to receive their identity as part of Israel, celebrating all Biblical Feasts as One New Man and grafted into the Olive Tree! This is the heart of Yeshua, that we might be ONE!
Precious family of warriors, we shall celebrate a MESSIANIC PESACH, FOCUSING ON THE LAMB YESHUA who took us out of our own Egypt of sin, parallel to the story of slavery that our people went through, and the MIGHTY DELIVERANCE BY ADONAI’S OUTSTRETCHED ARM!
We wish we could be sitting with you as you are our MISHPACHA (Family)!
With much love and gratitude for your precious lives, we wish you many blessings of joy at your table.
The Elia Family
