Do you believe in God? Whether you believe Him or not, you may know about Christmas. But you may not know well about New Covenant Passover. Jesus sacrificed himself to give us eternal life through Passover. About 15 years ago, while watching TV, I saw that one TV program said that “Christmas is not real”. I forgot this soon. Later, I meet church members and found that I totally misunderstood.
CHRISTMAS IS NOT THE BIRTHDAY OF JESUS
It’s already the end of 2016. “Joy to the world! The Lord has come…” We can easily hear Christmas carols in the street and on TV at this time every year. On every 25th, Dec., many people celebrate the Nativity of Jesus instead of Passover(1 Chorinthians 11:26 For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.). But, Christmas is absolutely NOT the Nativity of Jesus. Christmas has nothing to do with our salvation. Christmas is just the birthday of sun god.
Then, what day do we celebrate for Jesus, our Savior??
PASSOVER, THE DAY TO CELEBRATE JESUS’ SACRIFICE
As you know, Jesus was crucified for our salvation. It breaks our hearts. We can receive forgiveness of our sins only through Jesus’ sacrifice…Jesus’ blood.
In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance the riches of God’s grace. (Eph. 1:7)
For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from you forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. (1 Pe. 1:18~19)
How can we participate in the blood of Christ? Just believe in our mind?? NO!! Jesus showed us the true way by keeping the Passover with His disciples 2,000 years ago.
… “Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover? ……While they were eating, Jesus took bread, give thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, ” Take and eat ; this is my body.” Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.” ( Mt. 26:17, 26~28)
We can eat Jesus’ body and drink His blood only through the Passover. It is the only way to the forgiveness of our sins and eternal life. It’s the promise of Jesus!! If you believe in Jesus, surely you have to celebrate it because He wanted us receive salvation through it. We should be thankful to our salvation and remember Jesus’ sacrifice by keeping the Passover not Christmas.
PASSOVER, THE TRUE LOVE OF GOD
Jesus never stopped loving us till death. We can feel the true love of Jesus through the Passover. Where can we keep the Passover? Only WMSCOG keeps the Passover as Jesus had directed in the whole world. Let’s come to Church of God (WMSCOG), and we will find the true God & the true love of God.
