Passover is NOT easter, easter is a pagan festival full of earth worship fertility symbols whilst Passover holds a serious message from Yah.
To Yah, mankind died when Adam ate of the forbidden fruit, and Passover is all about death passing over those who obey Yah’s instructions (keep Yah’s TORAH).
In order for the angel of death to pass over a household, certain precautions had to be taken:
- Stay inside for the doorway is guarded
- Paint the lintels of the doorway with the blood of a sacrificed lamb.
We are also instructed to remember the passing over of the angel of death by basically having a barbeque of Lamb cooked with the specified herbs and eaten with unleavened bread as if one was about to leave on a long journey.
Passover is a mind picture of that point in our lives when we first acknowledge that “in the beginning Yah created”, and when we prepare to leave ‘Egypt’ in order to set out for ‘Israel’. Hence we leave death behind us; the death as a result of our eating of the fruit of the tree of knowledge too. Because believe me, until we understand that we too have worshiped our own knowledge of good and bad, at the expense of accepting Yah’s Knowledge of Good and Bad (TORAH), we are in big, big trouble.
We come out of the slavery and death in Goshen, and we start our journey to a new life in the Kingdom of Yah as obedient subjects who live according to His law.
So every year we celebrate our rebirth on the moed of Passover.
Folks, Passover is party time, the family and fellow journeymen (and women) gather together and barbeque the lamb (whole or in part) and celebrate together our new life courtesy of that Lamb of Yah slain for us and whose blood guards our doorway, the doorway upon which we can knock and the door will always be opened. We celebrate our release from the bondage of death and the new start of our life journey.
We do not have to embellish the feast, there is no ritual ‘seder’ that drones on and on about what rabbi wotsit said. As long as we keep the basics we are free to enjoy ourselved, it’s a party, a celebration, it is something we should look forwards to for the whole year.
Passover is the first of the spring feasts, covered by the umbrella which is the feast of unleavened bread. Unleavened bread is bread without yeast, and in our picture language, yeast is what ‘religion’ adds to the basic word of Yah, it is the ritual and tradition that afflicts every religion and obscures the truth of Yah by blanketing it with the traditions of men. “beware the leaven of the pharissees’.
