The First Cup, the Cup of Sanctification, was a picture of the setting apart of the Children of Israel–the Setting Apart of the Bride of Yeshua. Now, with the second cup, the Bridegroom must agree to the payment for the Bride. The terms of the agreement are discussed, and He must decide.
In a Passover Seder, during this part of the Passover Seder, the attendees are reminded of Israel’s affliction, pain, tears, and hardships of slavery in Egypt. The Plagues are recounted, and the picture of God’s strength over other gods is displayed. With Yeshua, we recount all the pain our Redeemer endured (pain), all to bring us to Him—even death! The second cup is a picture of the required “payment” to get the Bride. We praise Yeshua, as He saw us in our wretched state, and still said, “She’s worth it”. Hallelujah!
The Bride waits for the answer to the payment. “Yes”, He says. I will pay.
Blessings to you, my fellow Bride. He has said, “Yes!”, and has paid for our freedom!
