Just as Egypt was under the control of Pharaoh so this world lies in the power of Satan, the evil one.
Just as Pharaoh was not about to let go of his slaves, so Satan will do all he can to hold onto those who haven't yet seen the truth 2 Cor But there is hope! Just as God provided a way of escape for the Israelites through the blood of the 'Passover Lamb' so there is salvation today in the one who is the true Lamb of God - Jesus Christ. So let's explore God's way of escape through the Passover. So lets look at this way of escape. Lets look at how the Israelites were able to escape the clutches of Pharaoh and how believers today are freed from their debt and slavery to sin.
The historical account of this is given in Exodus See also an earlier look at the Passover here if interested. We'll look at each verse and add some thoughts on how this is fulfilled from both a Messianic and personal application.

The Messianic application is obviously what Jesus did to fulfil this feast. The personal aspect is how we appropriate and apply this truth. The 'Seder' is generally a fifteen step process 6 of celebrating the Passover and feast of Unleavened Bread. One aspect I want to draw your attention to today is the four cups of wine that are used in the ceremony.
Edward Chumney in his book 'The seven festivals of the Messiah' writes:. The cup of blessing Luke ; 1 Corinthians This cup is called the cup of sanctification, or the Kiddush. The cup of wrath Luke This cup is not drunk, but is poured out on the table as the plagues of Egypt are recited. Yeshua drank of this cup for us in the Garden of Gethsemane and when He died on the tree. The cup of blessing, salvation, or redemption.
This cup is filled to overflowing, symbolizing an overflowing salvation Psalm The cup of the kingdom Luke ,20; Matthew Yeshua spoke of eating and drinking afresh in the Messianic age with His disciples after His resurrection. I found this very interesting and it certainly sheds more light on 'the last supper' where Jesus wouldn't drink of the cup of the kingdom 7 : Luke And He said to them, "I have earnestly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer; 16 for I say to you, I shall never again eat it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.
It also shed more light upon the 'cup of wrath' that He alone had to drink. As noted above, this is a cup that is poured out. Thank God again that all those that have come to know Jesus as their Passover Lamb, will not drink from God's cup of wrath. For us, it can be poured out and missed. But Jesus did drink of this cup on our behalf. This was the cup that He asked, if it were possible, might be taken from Him. Yet, even in the midst of facing such incredible difficulty, He again won the victory by finishing His prayer with the words 'yet not my will, but yours be done'.
Luke Matthew After singing a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives. The Bible says that at the end of the last supper, on Passover, Jesus and the disciples finished by singing a hymn and then went out to the Mount of Olives. When we think 'hymns' some beauties may come to mind like 'Amazing grace' or 'Be thou my vision'. But for the Jews, they think 'the Psalms'.
On the feast days most notably Passover and Tabernacles the Jews would sing the 'Hallel' which is Psalms They would close with Psalm so it is likely that this was the Psalm sung by Jesus and His disciples as they finished their Passover together for the final time. Why is that interesting you ask? Well, it is interesting due to the content of the Psalm. And one final point before reading this part of this song - we need to remember that it wasn't just Jesus and the disciples singing this They were all declaring it at the top of the lungs!
It is a song that the vast majority of Israel, with blinded eyes and hardened hearts, had no idea as to what they were saying at the time of Jesus' first coming.
But it also foretells of a day when they will see the meaning of what they sang! Psalms I shall give thanks to You, for You have answered me, And You have become my salvation. The Hebrew word for 'salvation' is 'Yeshua' - which is Jesus' name in Hebrew. The song thanks Yeshua Jesus for becoming my salvation. Psalms The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief corner stone. At this time of Passover they sung that the stone that the builders rejected which is Jesus, Mat has become the chief corner stone!
And it is marvelous in our eyes!
Again, they had no idea what they were singing at the time of Jesus' death on the cross but one day this Psalm will be sung and believed by Israel! This is a Messianic title. They sung this to Jesus at His 'triumphant entry' but still rejected Him 4 days later. Jesus said that Israel would have to say this once more before they would see Him again Mat This will happen in the days leading up to the return of Jesus. It is amazing that all of Israel would have been singing 'bind the festival sacrifice with cords to the horns of the altar' at the same time that Jesus was being nailed and possibly tied to the cross.
And yet they didn't understand the truth that God had ordained for them to sing at this time. We have looked briefly at the first of seven feasts that God has ordained and have seen that it is directly fulfilled in the death of Jesus Christ on our behalf.
Pass the Salt!
As noted, each verse in the Exodus 12 account of the Passover has direct relevance for Jesus and our life today. Chumney notes that 'Passover Pesach has been given by the rabbis the appropriate title of the "Feast of our Freedom!!! Everything starts with the Passover. But this is only the beginning The next feast we will look at is that of Unleavened Bread and believe me when I say that it is equally as instructive and enlightening! God has given us His feasts as a prophetic insight into the work of the Lord Jesus Christ so we would do well to pay attention to them!

Salt and the Sacrifice of Christ
Cheshvan 9. Kislev Tevet Shevat In his book 'Unlocking the secrets of the feasts' Michael Norton notes something very interesting here. He spoke to a Jewish friend who said that in later times Jewish families would also take the lamb to the temple to be sacrificed. They would put the family name around the neck of the lamb to make sure that they received the same lamb back for the Passover dinner.
Norton notes that when Jesus went to the cross, we read: 'Pilate also wrote an inscription and put it on the cross. Norton writes 'Just like the Jews put their family name on their lamb for sacrifice at the Temple, God put His name on His Lamb for His family, which includes you and me! Edward Chumney in The seven festivals of the Messiah, page gives this amazing parallel writing: 'On the fourteenth of Nisan, at the third hour of the day a.
