The Jewish Passover & Why it’s Meant for the Whole World

@ROliverLuce | 04-18-17

Here’s a question! What do you think “Passover” means? Yes, the first PASSOVER was about saving the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt. It’s about how Adonai delivered the Israelites. It’s about the death of every living first born of every human family. However, it’s MORE than just that!

It’s about God slowly & progressively revealing His gracious love for ALL of the Humanity! It’s also about Adonai gradually moving the Hebrews into action in reaching out with the Word of God to the nations of the Earth about God’s eternal plan of hope and salvation from man’s dilemma of error and ruin. Even with each country’s creation and version of law they established, sin came anyway. Sin is the result of knowing a culture’s laws and breaking them at any rate! No matter what is set (laws) each nation experienced sin in greater and great measure. The increase in sin was also Israel’s problem as well with Adonai’s laws because of their willful disobedience to God’s law of graciousness and His love!

Thus Man’s only hope and salvation is through God’s Covenant with man/woman. God loves all and wants everyone to accept His gracious love when they choose rightly. God first loved us, and He shows His love FIRST that we might choose His graciousness that brings hope! This knowledge is given to the Jews that they might learn His ways and go out and cover the Earth and the seas with the knowledge of His law of graciousness and love that God was progressively giving to them!

In explaining how Passover and Covenant are related, I want to bring up scripture to point this out just what that connection is!

Without Passover, there is no Covenant.

The following scripture in a summary will show the progressive revelation of God’s Covenant and the Passover that will seal the deal on His Covenant of Salvation!

Genesis 3:14, 15 Regarding the Serpent; God will put enmity between the Serpent and the woman, and between the Serpent’s seed and her seed, and we know that women naturally do not produce seed as men do. [TOL, pg08] *[1]

Genesis 15:17, 18 God shows Abraham His Covenant through a dream with the promise of land for his and his seed’s inheritance. [TOL, pg22]

Genesis 17:1-19 God now makes His Covenant with Abraham and promises to confirm it with a son through Abraham’s wife! [We can take this as a type and shadow of the Messiah (God) confirming and sealing the deal on His own Covenant He has made with Abraham, and with Israel, and everyone whosoever will accept God’s graciousness into their lives! We are Abraham’s seed by decree from Adonai! [TOL, pg24]

Finally, with Adonai’s Covenant, there can be a hope and a future for all of  mankind; For everyone! Thus the resulting in a great outreach to the nations with this fantastic hope and a future for all the nations beginning with Israel.

Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans that I have in mind for you,” declares Adonai, “plans for shalom (peace) and not calamity—to give you a future and a hope.” [TOL, pg546]

Israel! God’s Witnesses to the Nations!

That all nations might be saved through obedience to His law of graciousness and love that is common to the various nations and cultures of the Earth! The Hebraic vision, that Adonai has given, will do this!

A simple example of Israel’s mission in teaching the Word of Life to the nations!

And here’s an example how Israel acts in wisdom by hearing the Word of God in every circumstance in life! To even teach the Word of the living graciousness of God!

1Chronicles 12:33(32) from the sons of Issachar—men who know how to interpret the signs of the times to determine what Israel should do! [TOL, pg982]

A simple example of why Israel was chosen by Adonai to reach out to the nations!

Deuteronomy 7:5-7(6-8) Adonai did not choose Israel because of their size or greatness in the Earth but because they were the least of all. As He showed His love towards Israel there was always a remnant that responded! [TOL, pg213]

Israel is to be Adonai’s Servant Nation to the nations!

Isaiah 43:8 – 13 Israel is my witnesses to the ends of the Earth!
“Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.” ~Isaiah 43:10 [TOL, pg486]

Therefore, whatever Passover means to Israel must also mean hope and salvation to the nations as well!

Genesis 12:3 Adonai shall bless those who bless you, but will curse those who curse you, Israel. For in you, Israel, all the families of the Earth SHALL BE BLESSED! [TOL, pg18]

Exodus 19:4 – 6 Jews becoming kings and priests for Adonai that they may teach the nations the way of peace through the only God, Adonai who is the god of wisdom and hope. [TOL, pg93]

Concluding!

Thus the Jewish Passover was and is meant for the Whole World, but this does not mean Jewish culture and certain ‘added protective’ Mosaic laws are meant for the other nations, except how to accept God’s LAW of graciousness within the context of their cultures.
