Wishing you a blessed Second Passover (Pesach Sheni)

“Have the Israelites celebrate the Passover at the appointed time.  Celebrate it at the appointed time, at twilight on the fourteenth day of this month, in accordance with all its rules and regulations.”  (Numbers 9:2-3)

The Day of Second Chances Begins Tonight

Pesach Sheni (Second Passover) begins tonight at sundown.

What makes this holiday unique among all the other Jewish holidays is that God gave it in response to all the Israelites who missed Passover because they were ritually unclean.

“But some of them could not celebrate the Passover on that day because they were ceremonially unclean… but why should we be kept from presenting the Lord’s offering with the other Israelites at the appointed time?'”  (Numbers 9:6-7)

Pesach Sheni (Second Passover) is a wonderful picture of missed opportunity and the merciful nature of God.

Although God had set the time for Passover on Nissan 14, He revealed though Pesach Sheni that it is never too late to worship and thank the Lord for His miracles and mercy.

Pesach Sheni reminds us that God also Passes Over our problematic circumstances and the mistakes we make in life – He is the God of Second Chances.

Although we are not required to clean our houses of chametz
(yeast products) to celebrate the Second Passover, we are required
to eat matzah (unleavened bread) while celebrating this holiday.

The Second Passover has a prophetic aspect, as well.

Perhaps the ultimate second chance is God’s end-time gathering of Israel, coupled with Israel’s end-time spiritual restoration.

“I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the LORD.  They will be my people, and I will be their God, for they will return to me will all their heart.”  
(Jeremiah 24:7)

Last night, millions of Jewish People all around the globe and, of course, in every Jewish home in Israel, gathered together with family and friends for a special meal called a Seder.
During the meal, they recounted how God saw our affliction and took them out from Egypt with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm.
Tonight outside of Israel, many will enjoy a second Seder, retelling the story of physical redemption without understanding that Yeshua (Jesus) is the prophetic fulfillment of this wonderful holiday.
“For Messiah, our Passover Lamb, has been sacrificed.”  (1 Corinthians 5:7)
On the eve of the Israelite’s deliverance from Egypt, those who followed the instructions of Moses placed the blood of the lamb on their doorposts so that the wrath of God would “pass over” that household.
That shed blood foreshadowed the death of Yeshua HaMashiach, our Passover Lamb, whose blood was shed for sin (1 Peter 1:19).
“Yochanan (John) saw Yeshua coming toward him and said, ‘Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!'”  (John 1:29)>
Sadly, the vast majority of the Jewish people do not yet recognize that Yeshua is their Passover Lamb who brought spiritual redemption.
You can make a difference during this prophetic Biblical Spring Festival by helping  share with the Jewish People the Good News of Yeshua HaMashiach, the Lamb of God.

Let us not forget, Jesus came to save all of us!
