The Passover Lamb

This year, 2021, as we enter the Passover season which coincides with Easter, it is the time to exalt the Passover Lamb, the Lamb who was slain for the sins of the world.

We praise the Passover Lamb because He takes away the sin of the world.

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

Passover, also called Pesach (Hebrew: פֶּסַח‎ Pesaḥ), is a major Jewish holiday that occurs in the spring on the 15th day of the Hebrew month of Nisan. One of the biblically ordained Three Pilgrimage Festivals, Passover is traditionally celebrated in the Land of Israel for seven days and for eight days among many Jews in the Diaspora.

He who suffered and died, the Lamb of God, (שׂה האלהים Seh HaElohim). gave the ultimate sacrifice of Himself, God made man, for our sakes — a life giving offering.

He did not come to make bad people good, but to make dead people alive.

In Him was life; and the life was the light of men.
~ John 1:4 (KJV)

We praise The Passover Lamb for Eternal Redemption.

Neither by the blood of goats and calves,
but by His own blood He entered in once into the holy place,
having obtained eternal redemption for us.
~ Hebrews 9:12

Thank You Yeshua for suffering and dying for us, but we also remember that now You are glorified and reigning.

You are the central figure in all of history. Life on planet earth changed when You died at Calvary and rose again. Your blood still avails for us.

We praise the Passover Lamb because in this season,
You will be exalted like never before.

The Lamb of God will be exalted in this season like never before.
This is a special Passover for Israel this year after one year of lockdown.
I believe something significant is about to take place.

He is getting ready to return to Zion.

The Lord says this: “I will return to Zion and live in Jerusalem. Then Jerusalem will be called the Faithful City, the mountain of the Lord of Hosts, and the Holy Mountain.”
~ Zechariah 8:3 (HCSB)

We praise the Passover Lamb for providing deliverance and protection for God’s people

The Israelites had lived in slavery for generations and at the set time, the Lord sent His deliverer, Moses to set His people free from Pharoah and Egypt. The Father had a plan. His plan was the Lamb.

Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying,
In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb,
according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house.
~ Exodus 12:3 (KJV)

And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month:
and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.
~ Exodus 12:6

For Adonai will pass through to kill the Egyptians;
but when he sees the blood on the top and on the two sides,
Adonai will pass over the door
and will not allow the Slaughterer to enter your houses and kill you.
~ Exodus 12:23 (CJB)

The Lamb however was to be taken into the home, even befriended, fed by the family, and perhaps even loved. Then that same lamb had to be taken, slaughtered, the blood placed upon the doorposts and lentils (a lintel or lintol is a structural horizontal block that spans the space or opening between two vertical supports).

From our understanding today, the shed blood of Jesus is the most powerful substance in the Universe because He conquered death, the grave; He took the keys of Hell and of death, and for those of us who have applied His blood to our lives, our homes as well. He is the interface, the protection between His people, who belong to His Heavenly Kingdom, and the world that is under the control of the evil one in this present time.

We do not just have His blood applied to our houses and our lives for protection, but like in Exodus, the family had to cook the lamb, and eat the lamb, partake of the lamb so that they became one with the lamb. The lamb was inside of them AND they were inside of the Lamb i.e., the blood covering over the house.

In my preparations, I asked the Lord what He was trying to highlight about the Passover Lamb before I went to sleep one night. Then in the morning, I had a dream and the Lord highlighted to me through that dream that today in our society, we do not value the family and fathers. The Passover Lamb was a lamb according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house.

Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying,
In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb,
according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house.
~ Exodus 12:3 (KJV)Passover meal

They were remembering their fathers — Avot אָבֹת in Hebrew — and hence their tribes, their identities. We need to remember where we have come from, that we are not just individuals, but that we have been knitted into families, and the Father’s plan is still for household salvation.

And then in my devotions, this came to me: strengthen that which remains.

Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die:
for I have not found thy works perfect before God.
~ Rev 3:2 (KJV)

As we are approaching the coming of the Lord, and the families in our society are not what they once were, we, as the family of God, can be strengthened and become pillars again in our societies where people will look at believing families and notice a real difference that His grace on our lives makes.

We praise the Lamb for You Yourself are the provision.

The lamb features in the story of Abraham, the Father of our faith. He believed God and it was accounted to him for righteousness even before he was circumcised.

Abraham was promised by God that he was going to be the Father of many nations when he did not even have a son. Abram and Sara waited for the promised child and even tried to make the promise of God come true with his servant Hagar, which caused another whole set of problems.

Abraham and Isaac went to the land of Moriah; the Lord asked Abraham to sacrifice his son.
They went to worship and Isaac asked ~

“… but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?
~ Gen 22:7 (KJV)

And Abraham said,
My son, God will provide Himself a lamb for a burnt offering:
so they went both of them together.
~ Gen 22:8 (KJV)

The Passover Lamb, who existed before time began, appears from beyond time and space and enters the story of Abraham. For us He appears climatically in the book of John as the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world where He is baptised and finally crucified, shedding not just blood but water and blood — every last drop of the blood of the Lamb of God leaves His body and presumably flows down over his body, over the cross and into the land of Israel.

This video talks about the possible rebuilding of the Temple and animal sacrifice:


The Passover lamb was not just for the Jews and for the time of the Exodus, but the Lamb’s blood was shed for the sins of the world — since before the foundation of the world. The Passover Lamb, the sacrificed Lamb is none other than Yeshua Ha Moshiach, a Jew —

He came unto His own, and His own received Him not.
~ John 1:11 (KJV)

But as many as received Him,
to them gave He power to become the sons of God,
even to them that believe on His name.
~ John 1:12

We praise the Passover Lamb, for His blood speaks a better word

When Jesus appeared to His disciples after the resurrection, He said —

Behold My hands and My feet, that it is I myself:
handle Me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see Me have.
~ Luke 24:39 (KJV)

Here we see that the blood that was shed was never replaced with new blood.
It is and was an eternal sacrifice, and His blood still speaks a better word, like it says in Hebrews:

And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant,
and to the blood of sprinkling,
that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
~ Hebrews 12:24 (KJV)

We praise the Lamb who will reign forevermore

And finally, we see the Lamb in the book of Revelation in the time to come, seated upon the Throne.

Who is there who can open the scroll? No-one in Heaven or on the earth was able to open the scroll, only the Lamb — He is the one who is worthy to open the scroll.

And they sung a new song, saying,
Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof:
for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by Thy blood
out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation.
~ Rev 5:9 (KJV)

Even after He gave His all and people still reject Him — the spotless lamb of God — there will also be a display of the wrath of the Lamb.

And said to the mountains and rocks,
Fall on us, and hide us from the face of Him that sitteth on the throne,
and from the wrath of the Lamb.
~ Revelation 6:16

But for us who believe, He is altogether lovely.
~ Song of Songs 5:16

We praise the Passover Lamb who is now glorified and reigning

Passover Lamb reignsAfter these things I looked, and behold,
a great multitude which no one could number,
of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues,
standing before the throne and before the Lamb,
clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands,
and crying out with a loud voice, saying,
“Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!”
~ Rev 7:9-10 (NKJV)

We shall live with Him in the New Jerusalem.
He, the Lamb, shall be seated on the throne with God and we shall be with Him.

And there shall be no more curse,
but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it,
and His servants shall serve Him.
~ Rev 22:3 (KJV)


We praise the Passover Lamb for His great love for each one of us

Today, as each one is reading this devotional article about Yeshua, The Passover Lamb, the Lamb of God, Yeshua Keves Ha Elohim ישוע כבש האלוהים — it is an important moment. It is about a heart connection between your heart and His heart. Say “Yes” to Yeshua, and even if you already belong to Him, there is always a greater yielding of ourselves to Him.

Just like the Israelites had to eat the lamb until none of it was left, we partake of Him until none of us is left.

He must increase, but I must decrease.
~ John 3:30 (NKJV)

This is our way forward this year — the Father gave us His son, the Lamb, His greatest gift, not just to save us from our sins but to give us life, an inheritance, and a future.

Step into His life today — life abundant — He is the way forward in these uncertain days for surely, He is our only security — our Stronghold in troubled times. With a heart of love, He leads, guides, and provides, so the message today is to trust Him. Entrust your life into His care, let every burden and sorrow go to the Lamb of God.

Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.
~ 1 Peter 5:7 (NKJV)

Dearest Father, thank You for sending Yeshua, the Passover Lamb.
Without Him we are dead, but with Him we have everything.
We are forever grateful for Your sending Yeshua.
