The Feast Of Remembrance

21 Jul

The Feast Of Remembrance…

For over three thousand years it’s probably the most ancient, widespread, and continuously celebrated feast in history. God commanded the Jewish people to keep the feast forever and to pass it on from generation to generation.

But why? For this one reason – to remember. The Lord told them to never forget what happened to them in Egypt, the slavery, the miracles and wonders that God performed for their fathers.

Passover is a testimony that God’s people need to be people of memorial. What about the New Covenant? When you celebrate the Lord’s Supper, you’re celebrating Passover, in a simpler form. Messiah said, “Do this in REMEMBRANCE of Me.”

So God is telling you this: “Never forget your Egypt, where you came from, or how I took you out of the land of bondage, and the miracles I performed for you, the salvation, and how I kept you in the wilderness, and brought you to the promised land.

Keep it as a Memorial, and celebrate it all the days of your life that you may never stop being blessed in the Promised Land.”

As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!” “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10:38-42

Take time to remember your own Passover, the life He saved you from, the sin, the bondage, the hopelessness, the darkness – and the blessings He’s brought you to.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
