Happy Passover!

April 19, 2011

Is enjoying this holiday with my family. It’s the biggest and most important holiday of the year. I’ve found here a very good explanation about Pesach and it’s special significance. This holiday is all about the Messiah. He is the center and the essence. Our Passover lamb, our unleavened bread. Why, oh, why, do the churches celebrate a pagan feast named after Ishtar instead of the holiday that the LORD commanded us to keep for eternity?

 

 

Some Christians may reply with “Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.” (Col 2:16-17).

To that I answer:
1) Paul is warning against legalism, not against the keeping.
2) The Messiah is the body of that shadow – without a shadow there’s no depth, and we should be sitting in Christ’s shadow.
3) Is it a better alternative to substitute God’s holiday to a pagan one??

  1. I think that it is more, perhaps, because we Christians don’t know how to celebrate Passover or are unwilling to learn. Or, those like myself, don’t know where to start and don’t know of anybody living around them who could help. 🙂 So we go with celebrating the Resurrection of Christ the best way we know how. I make sure to not emphasize the easter thing as anything more that being happy that spring has come. In fact, I keep the worldly stuff away from the Sabbath because it’s not keeping the day holy. Though I know most people around me don’t feel the same way.
