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!
Are your ears ringing?? He’s been talking about you, and seeks your hand in Marriage! The first cup, The Cup of Sanctification, points to the setting apart of the Children of Israel. It also points to the first cup in ancient Jewish Marriage customs. There are Four cups in a Passover Seder, and there are Four cups in Ancient Jewish Wedding practices. Come along as the fist cup is explained, and how it relates to The Bride of Yeshua, and His pursuit of us.
This video will explain how Yeshua longs to have you as His Bride. In His heart, He set you apart–made you holy–sanctified you, all for Him. The Passover Seder is a retelling of that. It tells of how He set apart His Bride, and cleared THE WAY to set us free.
Enjoy this sweet cup. Here’s to our Betrothed!
Happy Passover! This evening is Passover, 2019. I have been asked to discuss how Passover applies to Believers in Yeshua (Jesus). In brief: It is the story of our Salvation. We have much to learn from celebrating Passover. No wonder the Children of Israel were Commanded to celebrate it every year!
I’ve decided to develop a series of videos on Passover (five total), and the celebration, called the Seder (Hebrew for “set order). The first video is on the Removal of Leaven from the Home. The other four are a discussion of the Four Cups, which are celebrated in the Seder. All these apply to our lives and our Communion with the Father. These cups are the Cup of Sanctification (Setting Apart), The Cup of Affliction, The Cup of Redemption, and the Cup of Praise. These cups are also part of the Traditional and Ancient Jewish Tradition of Betrothal and the Wedding.
I pray the Father speaks to you in these, as He has done so for thousands of years to all His Children who celebrate His offering of Freedom from Slavery. Here’s to LIFE! Here’s to FREEDOM! Worthy is The Lamb Who Was Slain!
Shabbat Shalom and Happy Passover,
Keith Green live singing his song “Easter Song”, and giving his testimony. Enjoy the song. Just click the link below:
Keith Green’s “Easter Song”
“Hear the bells ringing, they’re singing that we can born again. Hear the bells ringing, their singing, Christ is risen from the dead.
The angels upon the tombstone said “He is risen, just as He said. Quickly now, go tell His disciples that Jesus Christ is no longer dead. Joy to the world, He is risen. Hallelujah! He’s risen. Hallelujah! He’s risen”
And the church responds, “He has risen indeed!”
Seder Meal at church last night to celebrate our deliverance from bondage
Last night at church, we had a seder meal, something I had only heard of but had never experienced. The speaker, a Messianic Jew, led us through the different steps of the meal, which was part of the celebration of Passover. While some elements were part of the original celebration meal, others were added. The meal was full of symbolism for both Jews and Christians.
The meal was not what either Karen or I expected. On the table in front of us was a cup of grape juice, a cup of water, and a tray in the middle of the table with parsley, salt water, horseradish, apple and walnut mixture, matza bread, and boiled eggs. Each item had special significance and meaning, which the speaker revealed, each related to God’s deliverance of Israel out of Egypt and being protected by the blood of the lamb on the doorposts.
We, as Christians, have been delivered from the slavery of sin and death, again protected by the blood of the Lamb. The foods represented the bitterness of bondage, the fact that they had to leave Egypt quickly (matza bread, with no yeast).
Thank you, Jesus, for being the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.
Recently, I’ve had many Siblings in the LORD, facing horrific suffering. These are truly issues in life, that no one should face. Yet, they are. It aches me, as their Sister in the LORD. We sit with them. We pray with them. We look to the Father for rescue, and He does not disappoint.
While praying for them, the Father stopped me, and had me write out words of love from Him. I did. They were words of love–of holding–of support–of faithfulness. If you are facing a difficult time, and longing for the Presence of the LORD, or just seeking ONE much stronger than you, He is near. Your Salvation (Yah’s Shua–Salvation–Yeshua) is near.
May you know The ONE Who holds you. May you know the ONE Who holds all you see. May you know The ONE Who offers us our only means of rescue–our only HOPE. He is near. Let Him cover you.
Kings and Priests as the Sons and Daughters of the King–the Children of God–have a role, even now. We have a role to Keep The Way–Protecting the Walk! We do this by doing righteousness, according to Genesis 18:19. It is a very “thick” verse which is a beautiful picture of the discipling of His Children for their Kingdom roles.
He does this with His Children, of whom He KNOWS. This is not just a casual “knowing”, but a deep and intimate knowing. He teaches us how to “Preserve” the Way! Join me as I go through this verse, and uncover the beautiful plan for His Children, as He trains us as His chosen Priests and Kings!
