Today is the Fourth Day of Passover and I’m going to discuss some of the rich traditions passed down and practiced by Jews to this day.
Day Three Today is the Third Day of Passover and thought this would be a good time to discuss some of the Jewish Traditions and Laws of Passover. Before I get onto this, I want to remind you that it was only after God inflicted Egypt with the Tenth and final plague that the Pharoah … Continue reading Third Day of Passover – Foods Rich in History, Tradition, and Symbolism
Today is the Second Day of Passover, and today I want to share with you a few scripture readings on the night of Passover itself. I’ll be reading from Chapter 12 of the Book of Exodus, King James Version. We start in verse 12 where God is addressing Moses and Aaron, and God says ..
This week Brother Mark opens with a few words of Passover and then moves into 1 Kings 17 and 18. The story of Ahab and his wife Jezebel who was just as evil as he unfolds with Elijah, a drought, four barrels of water, and one barrel of meal (flour).
Last night at dusk marked the beginning of Passover, and today March 28 is the 1st Day of Passover. This Jewish Holiday commemorates the freeing of the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. Yesterday I discussed the importance of this Holiday to Christians (here), and why we should at least be very aware of Passover though we don’t celebrate it. The Hebrew word for Passover is Pesach, which means to “pass over.” The book of Exodus tells this story in both the Christian Bible and the Hebrew Bible. We have six video Sunday messages on Exodus (here), (here), (here), (here), (here), and (here).
If you have been following our Sunday Bible Bites (here), then you probably understand the relationship between Christianity and Judaism, if not our series on the Bible started with Genesis in the Old Testament, and we're currently working our way thru 1 Kings and 2 Kings. The Old Testament is often overlooked today by more progressive and liberal denominations and churches, but without it, fully understanding the New Testament and The Gospel of Jesus Christ is impossible. As Christians our roots are undeniably intertwined with Judaism. Understanding that can broaden your relationship with Jesus Christ in ways you never imagined.
At the risk of seeming "Orwellian," I'll say this; we have been commanded to be strong and of good courage, not to be afraid nor dismayed, but many pastors are very afraid. I'm unclear on why they are afraid but there are a number of possibilities. Are they in fear of the virus, or maybe their DS or bishop if they violated the stay-at-home order? Were they afraid of being locked up like Pastor James Coats who was only released Monday night by a Canadian Judge?
I am not sure how or why we often switch from the truth to lies. Sometimes I am not even sure if we ever really tell the truth. Maybe what passes between our lips is more often simply our version of the events happening to us or around us. Maybe, like Adam (the guy in the garden), we just head down the not quite true path without giving it much thought.
Are you good with your hands, and have you ever wanted to build something, or maybe even considered a career in engineering, building, or project development, then join us as we build a temple.
Join Brother Mark as he walks us thru 1 Kings 12.
