“Remember this day!” Exodus 13:3
March 25, 2013 – Passover begins at sundown
God is into calendar. We are drawing near the most historic, the most significant day of the entire year.
Yesterday was March 21, the 10th day of Nisan on the biblical calendar. This is the day the lamb would have been selected for slaughter, and it is also the anniversary of the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. The crowds were shouting, “Hosanna to the Son of David! Blessed is the King of Israel!”
For the next four days, lambs were examined to see if there were any flaws. Only a perfect lamb could be offered as a sacrifice. And it was on these next four days that Jesus was examined by the chief priests and elders of Israel, by Herod, and by Pilate. Pilate’s final conclusion was, “No basis” for His execution. In other words, He is flawless, a perfect Lamb.
So on the 13th of Nisan, at 9 o’clock in the morning, Jesus was placed on the cross. Six hours later, at 3 o’clock in the afternoon, the soldiers pierced His side and His blood flowed.
Israel was told, “Remember this day!” Jesus said, when taking the Passover wine, “As often as you do this, remember me.”
Gather the family together on Monday and Monday night and know this is the anniversary (on the biblical calendar) of Jesus’ death and Israel’s deliverance.
Always look at the moon. Pray for good weather and look at the moon. It is always full on Passover night.
Have a blessed season and a glorious life! Because of the Lamb.
