God instructed Israel they were to keep Passover a memorial, by an ordinance forever. Since that night in Egypt the Jews have kept the feast of Passover, and I was once able to experience it firsthand.

Some time ago, I spent Passover with a religious family on what the world calls "the West Bank." The Bible calls the particular place where I was "the mountains of Israel," or "Samaria." Because it is considered by many to be dangerous territory, my host family's relatives would not come to their home.

A Tradition Of Obedience And Blessing
So I was the only guest at the special Seder Meal. The smallest child asked the question, "How is this night different from all other nights?" (See Ex. 12:26). In answer, the English-speaking father throughout the long night's observance related the account of the Exodus to the children as if it had been their very own family which was delivered from Egypt.

I watched with interest when the middle of the three pieces of unleavened bread was hidden in the household and the children went to search for it. There was great joy when the bread was brought forth from its hiding place.

How precious is the blessing over the bread: Blessed art Thou, Oh, Lord, King of the Universe Who brings forth bread from the earth. Of course, I thought of Jesus. As a Jewish boy, He kept the law.

Every year of his life He kept Passover. He kept Passover those years He was training His disciples. But when He came to the last Passover He would keep, the Bible emphasizes His intense desire to eat it with them.

The King James Version translates it, "I have earnestly and intensely desired…." Knox translates it, "I have longed and longed…." You see, the time had come when He could reveal that He was the bread without leaven (sin) which would be broken for man and come forth from the earth.

He could reveal that He was the Lamb whose Blood was shed for man.
With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer…. And he took the bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.
(Luke 22:15,19-20)
A Better Covenant
Believers living under the New Covenant have the right to enter the communion of the Blood "which is shed for you" and to draw a Blood line Satan cannot cross.

If we do not have that right, we do not have a better covenant based on better promises. But we do! (Heb. 8:6).

In Egypt at the first Passover, they applied the blood with a hyssop branch. Since the Lord's Passion, we apply the Blood by faith.

Because we believe in the power of the Blood in our hearts, we apply the Blood with our mouths over the doorposts of our lives for divine protection and so that evil will pass by our lives once again.

Be sure you are speaking and relying on the precious blood of Jesus in your daily walk with the Lord!
