Is the blood of the Passover lamb smeared on the doorpost of your heart?

When I See The Blood

Play

Lyrics and Music: John G. Foote

Christ our Redeemer died on the cross,
Died for the sinner, paid all his due.
All who receive Him need never fear,
Yes, He will pass, will pass over you.

Refrain:
When I see the blood, when I see the blood,
When I see the blood, I will pass, I will pass over you.

Chiefest of sinners, Jesus will save;
As He has promised, so He will do;
Oh, sinner, hear Him, trust in His Word,
Then He will pass, will pass over you.

Judgment is coming, all will be there.
Who have rejected, who have refused?
Oh, sinner, hasten, let Jesus in,
Oh, He will pass, will pass over you.

O great compassion! O boundless love!
Jesus hath power, Jesus is true;
All who believe are safe from the storm,
Oh, He will pass, will pass over you.

Holidays and Festivals

Dear friend,

Shalom in the great name of Jesus our Messiah. The festival of Passover is just around the corner, and the staff of Your Mission to the Jewish People has been presenting a demonstration called Messiah in the Passover at hundreds of churches throughout North America.

I have personally given this presentation perhaps thousands of times in my 40+ years in Jewish ministry, and I never tire of the message.

Maybe it is because of the simplicity of the Good News – Jesus is the Messiah and the Passover Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

Pastors often give us the privilege of presenting Messiah in the Passover at their congregations with the added joy of celebrating communion – the Lord’s Supper. To relive the Passover as described in the book of Exodus and then to participate in communion with fellow brothers and sisters in the Lord is one of the most heart-stirring experiences a believer can enjoy.

If you have never had this experience, please ask your pastor to invite Chosen People Ministries to present this wonderful living sermon at your congregation next year. Call 1-888-405-5874 for more information or write to our Church Ministries Department at churches@chosenpeople.com.

Messiah in the Passover and the Story of Redemption

Participation in a Messiah in the Passover presentation is not only a beautiful experience for the believer, but the Messianic seder is also a very powerful way to help Jewish seekers witness the four-dimensional prophetic portrait of redemption portrayed in the presentation. Messiah in the Passover is the Gospel in living color!

The Messiah in the Passover enables you and your Jewish friends to sit down in the Upper Room and dine with Jesus and His disciples. Your Jewish friend will recognize the traditions, feel comfortable and will usually be more open to hearing about our Jewish Messiah – so please think about attending one of these presentations and bringing along a Jewish friend.

Jesus the Passover Lamb

There are many references to Passover in the New Testament that affirm the fulfillment of Passover in the person of our Messiah. Let’s look at one of the many themes from the Passover and show how it points to Jesus. We find it in John the Baptist’s words:

The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” (John 1:29)

In order to properly interpret John’s statement in this passage, we must understand the Old Testament context. In Exodus 12:3-13, the Lord commands the children of Israel to slay a lamb and smear its blood on the doorposts and lintels of their homes. The blood of the lamb would then cover the home, thus sparing the first-born males from the Lord’s judgment. This is a type (an Old Testament prophetic picture) of what Jesus would accomplish through His crucifixion.

Atonement through the blood of the innocent, spotless lamb would become a way for the children of Israel to understand the sacrificial system, which would soon be revealed at Mount Sinai, and eventually in the power of the death of the Messiah Jesus. He is the Lamb of God who takes away OUR sin!

Born Again – and Experiencing the Passover

I still remember my first Passover as a believer. I came to faith when I was barely 19 years old. Although I grew up in the New York area, I was living in California at the time and it was there that I became a follower of Jesus. I was part of the Jesus movement – at least the Jewish “wing” of the Jesus movement.

I became a believer in November 1970. By the time Passover arrived, I had already left the West Coast and returned home. As you can imagine, my parents did not understand why I had become a believer in Yeshua (Jesus) and they were confused, angry and hurt. They told me that I couldn’t share the good news with my sisters, grandparents or anyone else.

My folks were especially worried I would say something to my religious grandparents at our family Passover seder, which was held every year in Brooklyn. I do not blame them! They should have been worried, because unless they had told me otherwise, I would have preached the Gospel to all of them at the family Passover. This probably would not have been well received! I was honoring my parents (a new trend for me after receiving Yeshua) and told them I would try to keep quiet.

This went well for the first part of the Passover seder, until my grandfather raised the shank bone of the lamb and told the story of Exodus 12. At that moment I could barely restrain myself from jumping up and shouting, “Grandpa… Grandpa – it’s Jesus.” But I didn’t do it.

It actually took a few more years before I was able to share the Gospel with my grandparents, and when I did, they never talked to me again. This was one of the hardest experiences of my life, but understandable, as they had fled Eastern Europe because of religious persecution that they blamed on “Christians.” Other than myself, I do not think my grandparents had ever met a born-again believer – sadly, a common experience among Jewish people.

You can only imagine the misunderstanding my grandparents, my own mother and father and so many of your Jewish friends have about Jesus. But when your Jewish friends witness Messiah in the Passover, they might realize for the first time that Christianity is the fulfillment of the Old Testament promises, and that you really can be Jewish and a believer in Jesus!

Reaching Your Jewish Friends During Passover

Please be sure to send your Jewish friends Passover greeting cards and wish them a sweet holiday. This is one way to show love to your Jewish friends and express an appreciation for Christianity’s roots in the ancient Israelite faith of the Old Testament Scriptures.

You can also learn a lot more about Passover, which you can then share with your friends, by visiting www.chosenpeople/passover! You can even download an e-book on Passover and much more – so please take a moment to see the resources we have made available for you.

The sights, smells, tastes and story of the Passover all combine to make a memorable celebration that lifts our spirits. At Passover, we honor our past, give thanks for our present, and look ahead to the glorious future the Lord has promised to those who are found in Him. Truly, Passover offers a wonderful insight into the love, mercy and justice of our God in a way that is like no other.

Thanks again for your faithful prayers and generous financial support. On behalf of our board, staff and ministry team – thank you, happy Passover, and have a blessed Resurrection Day!

Your brother,

Mitch

E sarbatoare la Florii!

E sarbatoare la Florii -
Cum n-a mai fost vreodata,
Caci Cel prezis de profetii,
Azi in Sion se-arata.
10153745_738772679478279_8550086820044567118_n
Smerit, cu chipul Sau senin,
Inconjurat de gloate,
Isus, calare pe asin,
Coboara spre cetate.
1530555_738772539478293_2036683310319047118_n
In maini, cu crengi de palmier,
Ii ies multimi in cale;
Rasuna al Iudeii cer,
De cint si osanale.
10245317_738569649498582_8455635279802901477_n
Rasuna coruri de copii
Multimea se tot strange,
E sarbatoare la Florii,
Dar Imparatul plange:
10177374_738894019466145_7418181260294449200_n
“Ierusalim, Ierusalim,
Ce mi-ai respins iubirea
Si darul pacii cel sublim -
Iti plang nenorocirea.
1013203_597970023606164_1249207652_n
Dusmanii vor imprejmui
Tot zidul tau cu schele,
Iar pentru mame si copii
Veni-vor vremuri grele.”
10012668_681503761891072_1446916962_o
Cu lacrimi calde pe obraz
Plangea Ierusalimul … ,
Dar plansul lui mai scalda azi
New Yorkul si Kremlinul.
10007414_561438653953650_724248545_n
Vazduhul Terei e brazdat -
De undele divine,
Iar orologiile bat
Sfarsitul care vine.
1978785_737059329649614_1818615303_n
E sarbatoare pe pamant
Si lupta pentru pace,
Se flutura lozince in vant,
Dar Printul pacii tace.
1979708_561446573952858_1078951370_n
Azi, nu romani si nici barbari,
La porti vin cu stafeta,
Ci mii de monstrii nucleari -
Ameninta planeta.

E sarbatoare si e joc
Si muzicile canta,
Dar pace tu nu ai deloc
Si moartea te-nspaimanta.
1977322_724894340866113_1584091093_n
El hotaraste iar o zi
Azi, cat se poate spune,
Pe Printul pacii-L poti primi,
Nu amana pe maine!

When Christ Is Welcome
“Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD: we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD.” (Psalm 118:26)

 970132_738617449493802_8317727057504062928_n

This is the climactic verse of Psalm 118, one of the great Messianic psalms. It was fulfilled, at least in a preliminary way, when Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a small donkey just one week before His resurrection, thereby acknowledging that He was fulfilling Zechariah’s prophecy: “. . . behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding . . . upon a colt the foal of an ass” (Zechariah 9:9).

 1014450_738618106160403_4351305733477943400_n

As He rode into the city, many “took branches of palm trees, and went forth to meet him, and cried, Hosanna: Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord” (John 12:13). Many Christians even today still commemorate that occasion on what they call Palm Sunday, one week before Easter.

 1625643_738328282856052_1866605315106040289_n

But most of the people—now as well as then—doubted and soon repudiated Him altogether, crying out for Him to be put to death. He knew, of course, that this is what would happen, and He had already said: “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, . . . ! Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: . . . Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord” (Luke 13:34-35).

 10170742_738894039466143_4877455037203205648_n

The prophecy applied especially to the nation as a whole, but the principle certainly applies also to individuals. When anyone sees in his mind’s eye the Lord Jesus coming, if he will welcome Him gladly rather than turn Him away, then Christ will indeed come into his heart, “having salvation” and bringing “joy unspeakable and full of glory” (1 Peter 1:8), and he can say with deep thanks: “Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD.” HMM

Lumea noastră în lumina profețiilor.

Am ținut câteva studii în adunare și o soră din Sacramento m-a sfătuit să le aștern pe hârtie, măcar parțial. O fac cu reținere și teamă. N-am fost niciodată un adept al senzaționalismului ieftin și superficial răspândit de mulți așa-ziși ,,specialiști în profeții“. Luați și acum totul cu ,,un găunte de sare“, cum spun americanii.

Interpretarea profețiilor este determinantă pentru calitatea teologiei și a perspectivei de viață a celor credincioși. Articolul își propune să arate acest lucru pornind de la influența pe care interpretarea unor profeții din cartea profetului Daniel a marcat mersul Bisericii de-a lungul ultimelor douăzeci de secole.  Mai precis, acest studiu va arăta că identificarea „pietrei“ care a lovit chipul din visul lui Nebucadnețar și a fiarei a patra (identificată și cu imperiul roman) a determinat o anumită turnură în implicarea Bisericii în istoria mondială.

Cartea lui Daniel este „indicatorul“ lui Dumnezeu…

The Apostle John dealt with many Church crises, but he taught a formula for spiritual success. It is one of the most profound lessons in all the Bible.
