Passover Lamb #GoodFriday

The next day he saw Jesus coming to him and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! John 1:29

If there is any question how Judaism and Christianity are linked together, look no further than Passover/Easter. When the prophet John the Baptist announced, Jesus was the “Lamb of God” everyone knew what he was talking about.

The blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you live; and when I see the blood I will pass over you, and no plague will befall you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt. Exodus 12:13

To understand what Jesus has done for us at the cross, we need to understand what happened at Passover. The Israelites were being held slaves for over 400 years until God sent the prophet Moses to finally free them. Egypt’s refusal to allow Gods people go, left him no choice but to send 10 deadly plaques to call for their repentance.

The final plague was the Angel of Death that would “Passover” any home that was covered by the blood of the sacrificial “Lamb of God”

for this is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for forgiveness of sins. Matthew 26:28

Fast forward to when God sent his only begotten Son, as the perfect “Lamb of God’ to forever take away the sins of the world. Anyone who is covered by the “Blood of Christ” death will “Passover” them and we will live eternally in Gods Kingdom.

Remember this Passover/Easter, that Jesus is The Lamb of God. Because of him death will Passover you during the Resurrection in Jesus Name Amen

Heart, Mind, and Soul

“If you do well, will not your countenance be lifted up? And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door; and its desire is for you, but you must master it.” Genesis 4:7

Today we take a look at Cane and Abel, brothers that Satan tore apart to caused the first murder! Both brothers brought an offering before God; however God was pleased with Abel’s but not Cain’s? Why?

We have to remember God wants our heart,mind, and soul (Matthew 22:37) not just our presence, like quality over quantity. It says that Abel offered his first born sheep of his flock (Firstfruits), this was the best Abel had to offer and because of this God was pleased.  While Cain offered some random fruit from his garden, could have been leftovers or bad fruit, but it surely wasn’t his best, God rejected it!

God doesn’t really care what you are offering him, but what you are offering him should be the best you can provide from your heart. Cain was just going through the motions basically trying to trick God, but God reads our hearts, minds, and soul.

Now this rejection from God obviously upset Cain, and instead of him trying to do better, he became insanely jealous of his brother Abel.  As God said to him “sin is crouching at your door” meaning if you allow this jealousy and anger to manifest in you, it will grow into sin (James 1:15). That’s exactly what happened.

Instead of Cain, repenting, he allowed sin to grow into murder! (James 1:15) God wants us to love him with all our heart, mind, and soul (Matthew 22:37) , not just going through the motions!  Just like the 5 loaves and 2 fish, give God whatever you have and he will bless you in Jesus Name Amen!

Ancient of Days

I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days(God) did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire. Daniel 7:9

The term “Ancient of Days” was used by Daniel to describe God. Why because God is everlasting. The vison he sees is clearly God sitting on the throne as described in Revelations 1:14-15

However I suggest you clearly read Daniel 7:9 and Revelations 1:14 and notice there descriptions are identical further proving the Trinity between God the Father and Son Jesus Christ

A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened. Daniel 7:10

Another seen that is clearly describe in Revelations 5:11, as thousands of Angels surround God on his throne. And the book being opened clearly is the Book of Life (Revelations 20:15)

Daniels vision is clearly of judgement day when we will all stand before our Lord Jesus and account for our lives.

I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast (Satan) was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame. Daniel 7:11

The beast is Satan, and this event is when Jesus destroys Satan and cast him into Hell. This event is also described in Revelations 19:20

As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time. Daniel 7:12

The Kingdom of Satan will be destroyed and all power that Satan and his followers have right now will be gone.

I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man(Jesus) came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days (God), and they brought him near before him. Daniel 7:13

The same even as clearly described in Matthew 24:30, as Jesus is The Son of Man, he is the Messiah and giving all authority by God his Father.

And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed. Daniel 7:14

Jesus is King of King and Lord of Lords (Revelations 19:16) he will rule all nations, governments will rest on his shoulders (Isaiah 9:6) He will rule with a rod of iron (Revelations 2:27) and Gods kingdom will rule forever(Hebrews 1:8) in Jesus Name Amen
