Celebrating Passover Verses Easter

Jesus the Holy Lamb of God that was sacrificed for us on Passover

Some of you have asked “Why don’t we celebrate Easter*, attend sunrise services, honor the bunny rabbit or decorate colorful Easter eggs?” The answer is simple: These practices are not to be found in the Bible! Therefore, as faithful Christians we must be careful not to observe traditions that are not Scriptural nor holidays that have pagan origins (such as Easter, Valentine /Cupid Day, Halloween, or Christmas).

However, we do observe the biblical holiday of Passover.

This year on Saturday April 7th, Real Jesus Ministries will be celebrating our annual Passover Feast. If you would like to attend, contact us to make reservations. Our Passover Feast will begin with prayer, a special Passover meal (Seder)  and a solemn communion service at sundown the evening before, followed by a unique worship event the following day.

The LORD gave the Passover Feast to us, His people, (both Jews and Gentiles) to remind us of the great sacrifice that Jesus Christ [the Messiah] made on our behalf as the Holy Lamb of God who was sacrificed for us and took away our sins. The LORD specified that it was to be a perpetual feast to be observed for all generations (Exodus 12:14).

——-

* The name “Easter” is never mentioned in the original New Testament Scriptures. It was mistranslated in the King James (English) Bible in Acts 12:4, but it should have been translated “Pesach”, the Biblical Passover Feast instituted by God. It was during the annual Passover celebration that Jesus was killed at Jerusalem in which Acts 12:4 describes – not the pagan holiday normally associated with the term “Easter”.

Happy Passover

Behold! Jesus The Lamb of God who takes away our sin.

Behold! Jesus The Lamb of God who died and rose again.

Jesus The Lamb of God in the Old Testament:

 “Tell the whole community of Israel that on the tenth day of this month each man is to take a lamb for his family, one for each household…The animals you choose must be year-old males without defect, and you may take them from the sheep or the goats…when all the people of the community of Israel must slaughter them at twilight. Then they are to take some of the blood and put it on the sides and tops of the doorframes of the houses where they eat the lambs. That same night they are to eat the meat roasted over the fire, along with bitter herbs, and bread made without yeast.” – Exodus 12:3-8

 “The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are; and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt. This is a day you are to commemorate; for the generations to come you shall celebrate it as a festival to the Lord—a lasting ordinance.” Exodus 12:13-14

Jesus The Lamb of God in the New Testament:

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

“In a loud voice they sang:

‘Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,

to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength

and honor and glory and praise!”

Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, singing:

‘To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb

be praise and honor and glory and power,

 for ever and ever!”

The four living creatures said, “Amen,” and the elders fell down and worshiped.”

 – Revelation 5:12-14
