Wish I had a place to celebrate it... *sigh*
Oh well, I have my own box of Matzos and bottle of sparkling grape.
Passover is found in Exodus when God Yehuwah used Moses to take the Hebrews out of slavery in Egypt. God sent 10 plagues on Egypt to punish Pharaoh for refusing to set his people free. Passover came from the 10th and worst plague where God took the first born of every family that did not have the saving blood of a lamb painted on their door posts. He brought death to the house on which the blood was not found.
But the Lord told them when he sees the blood on their door post, he will "pass over" them and the death plague will not enter their home.
It is a prophecy for how Jesus, the Lamb of God would cover us with his blood so that the death of the final judgement will not touch us on the Last Day. By the blood you are granted immunity and are acquitted of your sin the the Heavenly Court of Law. This is a time of repentance to turn away from our sins and idols that distract us away from Jesus/Yeshua, who is our Eternal Life and healing for all the nations.
This was also the last meal Jesus ate with his disciples before he was arrested and crucified... The unleavened bread/matza--his body that was broken, and the new wine--the blood of the new covenant he instituted to draw all men to himself.
Watching this awesome message by Sy Rogers as I draw:
Wow... there's a lot I don't know about God.
