3300 years after the People of Israel were required to choose an unblemished lamb, kill it, and place its blood over the doorposts and lintels of their dwelling places we may face the time of prophetic fulfilment.
Today we have the opportunity to place the blood of the perfect, chosen Lamb of God, Jeshua, over our hearts and homes, so that by faith, we too will be spared from the Divine judgment due to fall on this world. This too is a miracle of deliverance.
Exodus 12:13 OJB And the dahm (blood) shall be for you, an ot (sign) upon the batim (houses) where ye are; and when I see the dahm, oofasachti [pasachti] (then I will pass over, skip, spare) you [plural], and the negef (plague, blow, striking, i.e., death of firstborn) shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I strike fatally with a blow against Eretz Mitzrayim.
In Hebrew, the word for I will pass over is pasachti וּפָסַחְתִּי, which comes from the word pesach, which means to hop, to skip over, to spare, and to pass over.
The lamb was to be slaughtered between the evenings (sometimes translated twilight). The other lamb, slaughtered many centuries later was also hung on the tree from the 6th hour to the 9th hour, which is before evening fell. It is the same time that the Passover lambs were being slain for the Passover Seder. For the lambs in Egypt no bone was to be broken and of the Lamb which was brought to bring ransom for the sins of all, also no bone was broken.
Exodus 12:46 OJB In bais echad shall it be eaten; thou shalt not carry forth any of the basar outside the bais; neither shall ye break a bone thereof [see Yochanan 19:36 OJBC].
John 19:31-36 OJB Therefore, those of Yehudah, vi-bahlt (since) it was Preparation Day [with Chag and Shabbos fast approaching], they did not want the geviyot to be left on HaEtz (Tree) [Ex 12:16; Dt 21:22-23; Josh 8:29; 10:26-27] during Shabbos, for it was Shabbat HaGadol [VAYIKRA 23:11], requested Pilate to have the legs broken and the geviyot taken away. (32) Therefore the chaiyalim (soldiers) came and broke the first man’s legs and then the other one hanging on HaEtz. (33) But having come to Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach, when they saw that he was already niftar (deceased), they did not break his legs. (34) But one of the chaiyalim pierced [ZECHARYAH 12:10] his side with a romakh (spear) and immediately out came dahm and mayim. (35) And the ed re’iyah (eyewitness) of this has given solemn edut (testimony). And his edut is ne’emanah (trustworthy). And that one has da’as that he speaks Emes that you might have emunah. (36) For these things happened that the Kitvei Hakodesh [19:24, 28,37] might be fulfilled, V’ETZEM LO TISHBERU VO (And not a bone of him shall be broken). [SHEMOT 12:46; BAMIDBAR 9:12; TEHILLIM 34:20-21]
It was the Preparation Day that Jeshua found his life coming to an end, but having come to Jesus, they saw they did not have to hasten the teacher his death because they saw that he was already death, and therefore the soldiers did not break his legs.
In the ancient writings we are told that we shall have to come together in the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, between the evening times to remember the the passover to Jehovah.
Leviticus 23:5-6 OJB In the fourteenth day of the first month at twilight is Hashem’s Pesach. (6) And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the Chag HaMatzot unto Hashem; shivat yamim ye must eat matzot.
Matthew 27:62 tells us that Jeshua died on the day of preparation for the Passover, which is Nissan 14, just in time for the Passover.
Matthew 27:62-64 OJB Now on the next day [i.e., Motzoei Shabbos], which is the one after the Preparation, the Rashei Hakohanim and the Perushim gathered together with Pilate (63) and said, Sir, we remember that when he was still alive that mateh (deceiver) said, After shloshah yamim I am to stand up alive. (64) Therefore, give orders for the kever to be made secure until the Yom HaShlishi (the Third Day), lest his talmidim come and steal him away and say to the people, He has stood up alive from the mesim. And the last deception will be worse than the first.
Therefore tonight we gather to remember the Elohim’s passover and tomorrow on the fifteenth day of the first month of our religious year we shall celebrate the feast of unleavened bread unto Jehovah: seven days we shall eat unleavened bread, but we shall be happy and share our happiness with those around us, because we do know that though Jeshua was among the dead, he is now risen and alive, pleading for us, at the right hand of his heavenly Father.
