 “ Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us:
(1 Corinthians 5:7 (KJV)
We keep the PASSOVER because JESUS kept the PASSOVER. Jesus is the PASSOVER (1 Corinthians 5:7, KJV). Jesus is the LAMB OF GOD (John 1:29, KJV). His blood was shed for our sins (John 19:34, KJV). SACRIFICES DID NOT DELIVER US FROM SIN – BUT THE BLOOD OF JESUS SAVES US (Hebrews 9-10).
We keep the PASSOVER because CHRIST is OUR SAVIOUR. He was rejected by his people the JEWS (John 1:11, Matthew 21:31-46). Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.” (Matthew 21:43, KJV). BUT HE IS OUR SAVIOUR. WE KEEP THE PASSOVER IN HONOR OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR DYING FOR OUR SINS:
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16, KJV). JESUS WAS THAT ROCK – EVEN IN THE OLD TESTAMENT: Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed” (1 Peter 2:5-8, KJV). JESUS IS THE ROCK THAT FOLLOWED THE ISREALITES.
