Messiah in the Passover- Exodus 12

P.S PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH YOUR JEWISH FRIENDS YOU KNOW!!!

*******************************************************************************************************************************

What does it mean “to be under the Blood of Jesus?” Or to be “Covered by the blood of Jesus?”

Dear friends, we will never be able fully comprehend what it means to be covered/under the Blood of Jesus the Messiah until we understand the story of the Passover in Exodus 12.

This is a prophetic picture of what Jesus would be for us in the New Covenant.

There are symbolism and shadows of the Messiah we can discover in the Passover feasts that the Jewish people practice to this day- it’s incredible!! have a look at the video, it’s 45mins long altogather.

Please read Exodus 12:1-30 before you watch the video

Exodus 12:15 The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are, so that when I see the blood I will pass over you, and this plague will not fall on you to destroy you when I attack the land of Egypt.

God told the Israelites and Egyptians, for each family they must kill a spotless lamb and apply the blood on the doorposts of their houses. When God sees the blood of an innocent lamb, His Righteous/just wrath/plaque judgment would passover them.

Jesus is our Passover Lamb. When God sees the Blood of His Son applied on the door posts of our lives- we’re His house, His blood is sprinkled on us, His righteous, just wrath/judgment will passover us Forever- He will never be angry with us again or rebuke us again(Isaiah 54); He blots out all our transgressions(Isaiah 43) and remembers them no more (Hebrews 10), therefore He can no longer Condemn us (Romans 8:1)- no more condemnation, no more guilt, no more shame, no more victim mentality of low self-esteem.

Full Cleansing!!!

He sees the Blood of His Perfect Son, we are now under His blood – clothed in His Righeousness, when He sees the Blood, we are fully accepted, loved in His Sight adopted as His Sons and Daughters and He laughs! smiles and rejoices over us with Singing!!!

That’s what it means to be under the Blood of the Son of God for those who have trusted-

His Judgment has already passed over us for all eternity (even on the Day of Judgment, you won’t have to stand before God on whether you will goto Heaven or the Lake of Fire, that has already been settled the moment you became born-again) and His Favor/Grace has Stopped over and is hovering over us forever in all eternity!!!

His wrath(righteous indignant anger of The Infinite Just God) has passed over you because His Justice has been satiasfied with the substitionary death of the Spotless Sinless Jesus and His Favor/Grace/Love has stopped over and poured/lavished over you because He has raised Christ from the dead and been satiasfied with the Righteousness(Perfect obedience of Jesus).

The Blood of Jesus will never run out of its power. It has unending life and it continuously washes over us- we can now approach the Throne of Grace with freedom and confidence and stand in His Presence 24/7 and never be cutoff from Him.

If you have applied the Blood of Jesus over your life, then you are Eternally secured in the arms of Your Heavenly Father and the Heavens will always stand open above you – the Heavens are shining and all the heavenly hosts cannot resists but join in unision and praise the Blood of Jesus!!!

I took these videos last night at a local baptist church where Messianic Jewish bible scholar Dr. Arnold from Ariel ministries spoke.

Part 1: 22mins

Part 2: 22mins

Revelation 12:11 But they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives so much that they were afraid to die

May  you overcome by the Blood of Jesus the Lamb of God!!!

When did Jesus forgive us all our sins? Part 1

UPdated: 23rd Feb 09

“Oh that the world would know and see, that the church would see…

“behold the lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world.” John 1:29

Quoting Wayne Duncan, from Grace Revolution forum

Thanks that’s the revelation I just got now. This truth will change my life- I know it.

When did Jesus forgive us all our sins- past present and future? When did He die?

When you believed in Him, or before you even had the chance to believe in Him, that’s about 2000 years ago?

Before we believed, our sins have been forgiven through His One Sacrifice at One point in history.

That’s the Gospel we preach to the lost- Jesus has already forgiven you!
*You don’t have to ask Him to forgive you for your sins to be forgiven
*You don’t have to confess your sins for Him to forgive you
Most ‘sinner’s prayer’ goes like this… “O Lord forgive me of my sins have mercy on me a sinner…I confess my sins so that you can forgive me”

THAT’S ACTUALLY WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You don’t have to earn your forgiveness, work for your forgiveness, pray to get your forgiveness, confess your sins to get forgiveness, fast to get your forgiveness, read the bible to get your forgiveness, obey the commandments to get your forgiveness (that’s Old Covenant Practice)- ALL your past present and future sins have already been forgiven!!!

*************************************************************************************************************

All you have to do is understand-change your mind-believe in Jesus, and you will be born-again!

*************************************************************************************************************

Instead the sinner should say, “Thankyou Jesus for your mercy(not giving me judgement) and grace (giving me forgiveness), You have already forgiven me of my sins! I repent of my unbelief, All I have to do is BELIEVE!!!”

How can a Christian loose their salvation?
if their sins had already been dealt with and forgiven at the crucifixtion before they believed, now that they have believed and received their forgiveness- how can God all of a sudden recall their sins for which He already forgave them before they got saved?

How can God punish the same sins twice?

That’s the difference between the Old Covenant and New Covenant. In the Old Covenant you had to forgive others in order to get forgiveness from God, but since Jesus died on the cross, now in the New Covenant, you can forgive others freely because Christ Forgave you at the Cross!!

That teaching that says, ” now that you are saved, there is a possiblity that you can loose your salvation- you are saved by keeping the law, and if you don’t get to confess your sins before you die, you could goto hell”

IS NOT WHAT JESUS DIED FOR!!!
That is not the Gospel! It’s no gospel at all! !!! It’s not the good news about the forgiveness of sins which we are called to preach to all nations!

JESUS DIED FOR E-T-E-R-N-A-L REDEMPTION!!!

Christians don’t have to confess their sins to be forgiven, they are already forgiven! please have a listen to Rob’s teaching on ‘Do Christians have to confess their sins to God?” 08/06/08 for deep expository on 1 John 1:9, on http://www.citychurchinternational.net/2008.html

(1John 1:9 was written in the context of Gnosticisim- written to people who didn’t believe in the existence of sin, they didn’t believe you could sin and they were bringing that heresy to the church. So John was writing to them to tell them to acknowledge that they’ve sinned so they could get saved. That Scripture was addressed to unblievers and believers who were confused by Gnosticism)

Eternal life is ‘ETERNAL life’ because all our FUTURE sins have been forgiven!!! NOT JUST PAST OR PRESENT SINS FORGIVEN! otherwise the moment we become born-again we would loose our salvation right away because I have moved from the present to the future and there are unintentional sins, sins of ommisions, sins of no knowledge that I do not even know about.

Luke 24:47 and repentance for the forgiveness of sins would be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem.

Romans 5:8 But God demonstrates his own love for us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

2 Cor 5:19 In other words, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting people’s trespasses against them, and he has given us the message of reconciliation.

Through the Cross God was not counting people’s sins against them- that means He has already forgiven them!!!

John 19:30 When he had received the sour wine, Jesus said, “It is COMPLETED/FINISHED!” 2 Then he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

Scriptures taken from net.bible.org

As my pastor’s wife said once,
“What part of ‘Completed/finished’ don’t you understand!”
Let the grace revolution hit the evangelism arena!
Thankyou!!!

Titus 2:11-12 For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all people, It trains us 1 to reject godless ways 2 and worldly desires and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age,

This truth will actually change your heart to love God more than ever before and express that through obedience.

is our sin gone or will it only be completely removed at the return of Jesus?

WHY evangelise?

The word evangelist in the original language, Greek, is euaggelistes, which means ‘a preacher of the Gospel, a bringer of good tidings’. The imaginery is liken to the middle age days where a herald would come to a village and proclaim a message from the King. He had been given authority to do so and that is his job, simply to be the king’s mouth piece to the people.

Yes, we are like a herald sent from God, but More than that, let me explain.

But, why do we evangelise?

(God really challenged me on this, and I would like to share with you what He spoke to me from my personal experience and not finger-pointing at anyone, please bear with me.)

The answer is simply to empty hell so that people won’t have to go there and fill heaven; TO SAVE PEOPLE.

Do we simply present the Gospel to someone and say, ‘that’s it, one down, next person please…’ and we don’t really care if they accept the gospel or not, but we just do it because it’s our job.

But I disagree with that motivation.

Picture this: you are selling a very great health product that could improve the lives of people. It’s health and benefits are documented and tested in the university labs. So you go around knocking on doors selling this product, but you don’t just present the product and then goto the next customer, but the whole purpose of presenting that product is so in the hope that people will buy it! Otherwise why even present it and say, ‘Okay now that you know what the product is, bye bye I’m going to the next person!’ and rush off. No salesman would ever do that. The purpose is to sell the product, especially in this case it will benefit people’s health.

So why do I, as a Christians do it, sometimes?

Especially when it comes to street evangelism. I talk to some stranger about Jesus, and say in my heads, ‘Okay I’ve done my job now, next person, please, the more people I talk to, I feel better.’ But I am simply doing it out of duty, not out of love; I don’t really care about that person too much, but I care more about my ‘job’.

If your family were unsaved, you would never do that to them! You wouldn’t just present the gospel to them, and say ‘that’s fine, let’s move on to the next person.’ But you would want them to get saved, because you love them! You don’t want them to goto everlasting punishment, but goto everlasting happiness in heaven, and you’ll do anything that you can to make that happen!

Most of us didnt’ get saved right away when the first time we heard the gospel, it was a process.

Paul is not like me at times, he said ‘I become all things to all men so that I might win some…’

1 Corinthians 9:19 For since I am free from all I can make myself a slave to all, in order to gain even more people. 8 9:20 To the Jews I became like a Jew to gain the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law) 9 to gain those under the law. 9:21 To those free from the law I became like one free from the law (though I am not free from God’s law but under the law of Christ) to gain those free from the law. 9:22 To the weak I became weak in order to gain the weak. I have become all things to all people, so that by all means I may save some.9:23 I do all these things because of the gospel, so that I can be a participant in it.

Taken from Net bible translation. http://net.bible.org

He didn’t just care about the message, he cared about the person with whom he was sharing the message with. His focus was the Person he’s talking to, not the Presentation he’s making. The presentation came out naturally as he was focusing his compassion on the person he was talking to.

Paul’s motivation for evangelism is not evangelism itself, but it’s in the hope that some might get saved. May his motivation become my motivation; let us not see people we witness to as just a number, but as precious human beings created in God’s image, worth more than all of creation itself, worth so much to God that He would give His Only Son for them.

Some might say, ‘we can’t save anyone, only God can!’ Of course, only God can save, but if we do our part to save people, then God will be able to do His part and save them too somewhere done the road.

So in summary, the motivation for any kind of evangelism (whether street or friendship) is NOT evangelism itself BUT for the Saving of souls; of people from going to a lost eternity.

Thank you for reading this.
