Passover is the Festival of Redemption. On the last day of Pesach, we celebrate what is called the Seudat Moshiach. The connection between the last day of Pesach and Moshiach (Messiah) is explained by the Tzemach Tzedek (a Jewish Sage): “The last day of Pesach is the conclusion of that which began on the first night of Pesach. The first night of Pesach is our festival commemorating our redemption from Egypt by the Holy One, Blessed be He. It was the first redemption, carried out through Moshe Rabbeinu, who was the first redeemer; it was the beginning. The last day of Pesach is our festival commemorating the final redemption, when the Holy One, Blessed be He, will redeem us from the last exile through our righteous Moshiach, who is the final redeemer. The first day of Pesach is Moshe Rabbeinu’s festival; the last day of Pesach is Moshiach’s festival.”
Of course we know that Moshiach, Yeshua, has come as our Passover Lamb, for those who receive Him and His precious gift. Our work here in Israel is to tell the Children of Israel Who the Redeemer is and that He has come and will come again!
What is so interesting is that the elements of the Seudat Moshiach are matza and the fruit of the vine (grape juice or wine)! Please pray that the time for the blinders to be removed from the lost sheep of Israel will be soon! This is such a ripe time for them to hear the truth.
Tonight is the last night of the Feast of Unleavened Bread. We pray that you will have a renewed spirit of boldness to share the Gospel, knowing the peace and joy you have through redemption in Yeshua!
