PASSOVER = Salvation of our souls
When the people hear that the members of the Church of God World Mission Society keep the Passover, automatically without any reason we are persecuted. If you existed during the time Jesus Christ was alive, would you have mocked Him? Let us see the true reason why we keep the Passover.
--ORIGIN OF THE PASSOVER--
The Israelites were in slavery for 430 years (Ex 12:40). For so long they prayed to God for freedom. God could have used any type of method to free them, maybe a plan to attach the egyptians or to escape during the night. However, God made His power known by having the Israelites celebrate the Passover, and due to their obedience they received the blessing of freedom of slavey and protection from disaster.
This is the origin of the Passover. This is a Law God Commanded to be kept for the generations to come. Which means as long as there are people living in this world, EVERYONE WHO CALLS HIMSELF A BELEIVER SHOULD KEEP THE PASSOVER (EX 12:14). That is why on our next post, let us see how the Passover affects current Christians. What is the blessing the Church of God members are receiving by keeping this Passover.
GOD BLESS YOU!
