JD: In all the turmoil that’s going on in the Middle East and everything that’s threatening Israel itself right in all of that the Jewish people get together to have Passover. Rehearse for us the original Passover as recorded there in the book of Exodus chapter 12.
SH: We will be using our hugota. that tells them exactly what to do and it has Bible passages such as Exodus 12. The story is very simple. I think it’s interesting that in light of how you introduced me with what’s going on with Syria, that hear in Exodus 12 is the story where the Jewish people have been in bondage for over 400 years. God raises up Moses, Moses goes toe to toe against the pharaoh says let my people go, takes 10 plagues against the false Gods of Egypt. The 10th plague being the death of the first-born. The Jewish people are told by Moses who heard from God that the last one put the blood from the lamb on the doorpost and when I see the blood I’ll pass over.
So the story is redemption and Jewish people have been scattered about through the years they have their own country now and are reminded of this story in the midst of all kinds of difficulties that in the end God has his hand on his people, he keeps his promises, he redeems them with an outstretch hand and each of the false gods were defeated and when God saw the blood he passed over. So Jewish people will gather around they will honor what God has done. And even in the midst of what’s going on in Syria Israeli Jewish people will gather around that saiter table and they too will acknowledge Biblically what took place and thank God for his redeeming hand upon them.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
The Passover is the first of seven Jewish feasts given to the Jewish people in Leviticus chapter 23. All of these Jewish feasts have a historic background but also a prophetic significance, as well. There are four spring feasts for the Jewish people and Jesus Christ fulfilled these feasts. He was crucified on Passover, buried on Unleavened Bread, and resurrected on First Fruits. Those are the spring feasts the three fall feasts will also be fulfilled by Jesus Christ. He will come back to the earth on the Feast of Trumpets, now that’s not the Rapture, but His Return to earth.
On Yom Kippur Jesus Christ will enter a Temple in Jerusalem going into the Holy of Hollies where He will rule and reign forever; that’s Zechariah 6:12&13. And on the Feast of Tabernacles the Lord gives Jesus Christ His son the Kingdom on earth that will be forever. Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
