Timing is everything!

No matter what the situation, invitation, or participation….timing is everything!  Unless you have the details, you will always be late, lost, or confused. As for me, I don’t like to be late – knowing the details, planning out my strategy and having everything ready beforehand allows me to not only arrive in a timely fashion, but to do it without stressing and fretting. Not only that, it also conveys to the other party that they are important in my life and that my timely appearance is because they are valued.

Speaking of timely events and being on time, there is an important event happening this coming weekend, and everyone has been invited…and the invitation has been engraved in gold by the Hand of God Himself. It is an invitation that our Holy Heavenly Father sent out as the first of seven very special invitations. This first invitation celebrates the Feast of Unleavened Bread/Passover.

Feast of Passover you ask? Yes, the Feast of Passover/Unleavened Bread is an invitation to everyone …. everyone, that is, that hears His voice and responds. ‘Knock and the door shall be opened’ … you know the phrase. So why are Christians and non-Jews drawn to the table of this special Feast Day celebrated by the Jewish people for over 3,000 years? What fascination, what symbology, what rituals speak to all humankind during this setting?

First of all, the entire ceremony speaks to all of us on various levels. On one level you have the symbolic side – the sacrificial lamb who was slain and whose blood was smeared on the lintels (doorframes) of the houses of all who believed in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. This blood from the lamb on the doorposts of their house (hearts) were than assured that they were ‘passed over’ during that last plague – the killing of the firstborn. This also resonates with many of us that believe that Yeshua (Jesus) who was the ‘lamb of God’ and sacrificed on our behalf. On another level, the historic level, Yeshua and all his disciples and followers (up until about the 3rd century) who were almost all Jewish, or who followed the Messiah Yeshua’s ways, gathered for that last supper, which might well have been the Passover seder.

As we relive this night (Gregorian Calendar 3/27; Hebrew Calendar Nisan 14/15) and remember not only our forefathers Exodus from Egypt so long ago, let us also remember what our Messiah accomplished at his last Passover. During this season of our redemption and the days following, allow yourself to ‘look back’ and ‘remember’ the personal exodus you yourself have taken or are taking as you strive to walk closer to the Holy One. These are the days when we clean house, get rid of the ‘leaven (sin)’ in our lives and purify ourselves so that we are ready for when the Messiah calls our name.

If you have not ‘cleaned house’now is the time to prepare yourself … begin by taking a deep breath, look deep into your soul with objective eyes and allow the Father to let that nagging sin surface! Recognize it for what it is .. something that displeases the One you serve … repent and allow the Father to cleanse you as you determine to overcome!

This coming Saturday evening the Passover begins again….if you have never attended a Passover Seder, find one and go! Your life, your spirit will be enriched and your journey will take on new meaning!

Many blessings to my brothers and sisters in His Name!
