This years Passover begins on the evening of Monday, April 14 and ends the evening of Tuesday, April 22, 2014.
In the BEHOLD, THE LAMB OF GOD post (https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2018/03/30/behold-the-passover-lamb-of-god/), it’s discussed that in Exodus chapter 12, YHVH tells His people to select a lamb for each house on the 10th of Nisan (Aviv) and keep it for four days until the 14th.
The 14th of Nisan, which is the actual day of Passover, begins at sundown tomorrow night — April 14, 2014. “On the fourteenth day of the first month at twilight is the LORD’s Passover” (Leviticus 23:5).
That means that the waving of the palms as the people shouted “Hosanna” happened on the 10th of Nisan according to Hebrew history, which according to our Gregorian Calendar began sundown last Friday and ended sundown Saturday.
My family and I flow pretty loosely with all this. For instance, we are unable to “do” Passover tomorrow night at sundown, so we try to find a time that works for us to have a Seder meal sometime during the 7-day feast of Unleavened Bread as a fallback (See Leviticus 23:6-9). Many people combine Passover (14th of Nisan) with the Feast of Unleavened Bread (15th – 21st of Nisan) and refer to it all as “Passover.” As you can see, my family is not so rigid on the application of these truths, but the correct understanding of them is vitally important.
What’s most important to me and my family is remembering Yeshua’s sacrifice as the Lamb of God that made access to the presence of God possible for all who apply His blood by faith. At the end of the Passover Seder, the child who finds the Afikoman (broken middle matzah that was wrapped in linen), receives a reward just like the one who searches for the Messiah “with all their heart” finds eternal life.
The actual day Yeshua rose from the dead was on the Feast of First Fruits (Levitcus 23:9-14), which is the 17th of Nisan. This fact is an important aspect of the redemption of time and His Feasts as well as His ancient pathways in a present truth way.
