Passover 2021

26th March 2021

This Passover, is the first of the seven Feasts of the Lord. This is very likely going to be a very important feast season prophetically. (There is another calendar which places Passover on April 27th, but this is the widely held one.)

Passover is related to the plagues of Egypt. It is also related to the refusal by Pharaoh to “Let My people go,” as commanded by God though Moses. It is also related to the Exodus to the Promised Land.

In today’s terms Passover is related to the cross of Calvary and the ultimate Promised Land.

Again, we see the refusal of the world to release Israel to her prophetic plan. The world wants Israel to join its new world order. The churches of replacement theology also obstruct God’s plans.

Passover is a most important time for the Jews today. But their eyes are not yet able to see their deliverance through the cross. But that is coming and it will come suddenly and en masse.

The feats of the Lord are called “divinely appointed, holy convocations” (Leviticus 23:1-3)

Interestingly, the feasts, Passover to Pentecost were fulfilled by and in the church. The feasts, Trumpets to Tabernacles will be fulfilled by Israel.

This is a very significant proof of dispensations at work. More than that though, it offers deep insights into prophetic things to come. It also demonstrates why many ministries can’t see Israel in her rightful prophetic place.

Passover also has a deadly counterfeit called Easter. As every true born-again Christian should know, Easter is filled with pagan idolatry and practises. The name “Easter” is the name of a Babylonian sex-goddess used in Baal worship called Ishtar. Even the name is forbidden by God (Zechariah 13:2)

Zephaniah 1:4 “...Against the inhabitants of Jerusalem, I will cut off every trace of Baal from this place, the names of the idolatrous priests, with the pagan priests.

The Catholic church removed the importance of Passover and replaced it with Easter. They did this to get rid of all forms of Jewish identity in the church. They believe that the only place for Jews is for them to become members of the Catholic church and forsake all Hebraic influence.

But they replace it Babylonian paganism. In other words they are guilty of de-Judaising some Jews and filling them with Baal-worship.

2 Kings 17:32-34 “...Priests of the high places sacrificed in the shrines of the high places. They feared the Lord, yet served their own gods according to the rituals of the nations...to this day they continue practicing their former rituals; they do not fear the Lord...”

Easter is about the rejection of the true ordinances and convocations of God in Israel.

Why and when did pagan / occult influences enter the church? They entered very soon after the church was born at Pentecost. The reason is simply that Satan has always intended to obstruct the work of God from the start.

Salvation is of the Jews. It is not of Rome. Our Lord was a Jew, is a Jew and will always be a Jew. He was never a Roman, nor ever will be. (John 4:22)

We are part of the “common wealth of Israel” – not the common wealth of Rome! (Ephesians 2:12)

Many churches that practise Easter, do so out of pure ignorance and enslavement to their tradition. Some know about these things and explain it away with: “We just use the name, Easter.”  But why then won’t just use the name “Passover?”

Ministries with no heart for Israel do have a heart for a foreign god, and the spirit of error!

There is so much more evil about all these pagan practises in the church, involving even the resurrection that I’m not going to get into now. Let me just say that as a Christian the desire of your heart should be to know the truth and walk in it. That is where the anointing is.

Here is the work of God for the Jew and the Gentile:

God says: “I will save you, I will redeem you, I will take you out, I will make you a great kingdom.”

Passover is about the truth. Easter is about the counterfeit and lie.

Any Christian ministry must give you full truth, insight, foresight, vision, understanding and hope as well as everything else that is required.

When all the pieces of the puzzle fit together and you see the picture, you relax in pure contentment – fulfilled.

You don’t have to believe the truth of the Bible, as is the case with most, but one day soon everyone will believe it all – alas too late for most.

It is only when Israel’s eyes open that the times of the Gentiles will end and the coming of the Lord will be around the corner. The two are inextricably linked.

The best by far is to stand as a “weaned child” waiting and watching in the right places for the glory too come.

Shalom...Joel
