– Passover Begins
Purim is the last on the yearly cycle of the biblical holidays. As winter fades our hearts turn to the spring when life bursts from the cold, hard ground. Actually the month of Nissan begins God’s calendar. On the 14th of the Hebrew month (April 19th) we celebrate the first and most important of the feasts of the Lord – Passover.
Now the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, “This month shall be your beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you.
“On the fourteenth day of the first month at twilight is the Lord’s Passover.”
- A holiday
- An event
- A season consisting of 3 different holidays
The Passover is extremely important not only to the life of Israel, but for the entire world. Because through the Passover event God revealed to the world:
- His memorial name,
- His character,
- His ways,
- His plan of redemption.
So that Israel would never forget, God continually refers to Himself as “The Lord your God who brought you out of Egypt.”
PRAY GOD WILL REMOVE THE VEIL OF BLINDNESS SO THAT JEWS WILL SEE GOD’S PLAN OF REDEMPTION THROUGH THE PASSOVER.
