Let the enormity of this mystery sink in. Yeshua (Jesus) not only celebrated Passover every year that he was on earth, but He IS our Passover: “Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us. Therefore let us keep the feast, not with the old leaven . . . but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth” (1 Corinthians 5:7-8 NKJV).
Notice the significant and direct reference of the Lord’s Feast of Passover (Pesach in Hebrew) in Paul’s exhortation to keep this Biblical Spring Feast with the bread of sincerity and truth.
What society calls the Jewish feasts, God calls “the feasts of the Lord,” and significantly He emphasizes: “they are My feasts” (Leviticus 23:2). They have been called the Jewish feasts because remnants of Jewish people have faithfully rehearsed the feasts of the Lord since they have been instituted. All believers of the first century celebrated the feasts of the Lord. It is the “Christian” church’s primordial practice.
The Lord Jesus Christ and the early church continued to observe the rituals and feasts articulated in the Word of God, because they understood that they portrayed the Messiah. Not only that, but they knew when believers sincerely connect to any Biblical Feast, they were/are answering the Lord’s summoning call to gather as one at a particular time in a particular place in order to become betrothed.
On a mystical level, a Passover Seder is not only a historical rehearsal of the Jewish nation getting delivered from Egyptian slavery and Yeshua’s death on the cross, it’s also setting us free to become married in oneness to the Messiah… or in other words, it’s the Mature Head of the Messiah (Yeshua) connecting to His Mature Body. It’s not enough to see truth. We must become it.
Passover is one of the nine Biblical Feasts that serve that purpose. “Just as the Spirit of the Living God has seven flows that manifests in nine fruits and gifts, so do the Feasts of the Lord.” This is the one-liner that LOVE has given me about the Feasts of YHVH in His Kingdom.

The observances of Biblical Feasts in the first century were not done for righteousness’ sake, for the early church embraced Yeshua’s sacrifice on the cross, as the only way in which they could obtain their right standing in and before God.
We must understand that our heavenly Father’s timetable is laid out in the Bible according to His calendar, and its time and seasons always point to the Messiah. As God’s people, we should be pointing to the Messiah too. So, returning to this age-old foundation of biblical time-keeping should be an instinctive process for believers. The Sabbath sets His people’s weeks. The New Moon sets their months. The feasts of the Lord set their years (Isaiah 29:1).
Every player in a game of sports plays by the same rules (2 Timothy 2:5). We just need to understand that in the spiritual realm, it’s God’s rules by which everyone plays, including the devil. Time is one of the closest things we have on earth to the spiritual realm. When God created weeks, months, and years, He gave them as gifts to mankind. His measurements of time help us understand where we are in the process of life. Life is progressive. These measurements of time are not there to make us feel bad or condemned. They simply help us make sure that we are not stagnant or stunted. As time goes by, we see our children growing up, and we periodically ask ourselves: Am I better than I was a year ago? Time helps us see if our growth is heading in the proper direction — maturity. Ultimately, our goal is to become part of the Full-Age One New Man in the Messiah – Metatron.
In this Kingdom Day, the kings and priests of the Order of Melchizedek will restore all things, including Biblical time-keeping, Biblical Feasts and the resurrection => https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/…/melchized…/
