In the Old Testament, Passover was a type and shadow of the redeemer, liberator, deliverer, and Savior to come – Jesus.
This year Passover begins this evening at sunset, coinciding with the very day we remember the crucifixion of Christ on this “Good Friday”. And so it feels especially holy today as we celebrate the beginning of Passover, and the last of the plagues in Egypt before the Israelites were freed. “For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment [proving their helplessness]. I am the Lord. The blood shall be for a token or sign to you upon [the doorposts of] the houses where you are, [that] when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and no plague shall be upon you to destroy you when I smite the land of Egypt. [I Cor. 5:7; Heb. 11:28.]” Exodus 13-12:12 . The blood applied to the doorframes was that from a spotless lamb, whose innocent blood was sacrificed so that the death Angel would passover their homes, sparing their firstborn.
I do not think even with the most powerful revelations of the atonement for sin we will fully understand the blood sacrifice of our risen Lord on this side of Heaven. Perhaps the closest was Jesus’ cousin John the Baptist who proclaimed “The next day John saw Jesus coming to him and said, Look! There is the Lamb of God, Who takes away the sin of the world! [Exod. 12:3; Isa. 53:7.]” John 1:29.
And that wasn’t the first time John recognized the Lord by the Spirit, thirty years earlier the two miracle babies John and Jesus had an encounter while in their mother’s wombs.
“And listen, even your relative Elizabeth has also conceived a son in her old age; and she who was called barren is now in her sixth month. For with God nothing [is or ever] shall be impossible.” Then Mary said, “Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; may it be done to me according to your word.” And the angel left her. Now at this time Mary arose and hurried to the hill country, to a city of Judah (Judea), and she entered the house of Zacharias and greeted Elizabeth. When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, her baby leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and empowered by Him.” Luke 1:36-41 AMP
The fulfillment of the Word had come, and the for-running prophet in the womb had recognized Him, the perfect Lamb of God slain before the foundation of the world (Revelation 13:8), though as a man John recognized Jesus as the Son of God after the Holy Spirit revealed this to him. “This is the one I meant when I said, ‘A man who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’ I myself did not know him, but the reason I came baptizing with water was that he might be revealed to Israel.” Then John gave this testimony: “I saw the Spirit come down from heaven as a dove and remain on him. And I myself did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, ‘The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and remain is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’ I have seen and I testify that this is God’s Chosen One.”” John 1:30-34 NIV
Jesus is the spotless lamb. He is the firstborn (Romans 8:29) and His blood made a way for you and I to forever be free from death with the gift of reconciliation and eternal life. “Clean out the old leaven so that you may be a new batch, just as you are, still unleavened. For Christ our Passover Lamb has been sacrificed. Therefore, let us celebrate the feast, not with old leaven, nor with leaven of vice and malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and [untainted] truth.” 1 Corinthians 5:7-8 AMP. His blood cleanses, His blood washes us, His blood purifies us to be seen as holy in His sight. His blood does for us that which we could absolutely never do for ourselves. And it takes the Holy Spirit to reveal the depths of this truth. May the Holy Spirit reveal Jesus, the power of the crucifixion and His atonement like you have never experienced before; Behold our Beautiful, Flawless Passover Lamb!
Below is a word I released two years ago beginning Passover that I believe is significant for now and I pray also blesses you. https://ablazeglobalproductions.com/2020/04/08/a-vision-of-blessing-and-birthing/
