Recently I’ve been reminded of something my spiritual mother told me,

“When you see a death, look for a resurrection.”

The Passover is a day of sacrifice, lamenting, & rejoicing for the Israelites. It’s the day where all of their sin will be removed and taken away from them and put on the sacrificial lamb. 

Before Passover, Jesus told everyone of what would come to pass, 

‘“You know that after two days is the Passover, and the Son of Man will be delivered up to be crucified.”

Matthew 26:2

He went on to say,

“With fervent desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer; for I say to you, I will no longer eat of it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.”

Luke 22:15-16

Because this Passover it would be the world who rejoiced over the death of the lamb and the Israelites would remain in the state of lament, John 16:20. Well at least in the beginning.

Like a woman birthing a child, there is much pain & sorrow when her hour has come, but as soon as she delivers, she remembers her sorrow no more, for joy has taken its place.

During death, 
There is no joy to be found
Only sorrow, 
Only grief. 

But do not despair for it is written,

“But I will see you again, & your heart shall rejoice, & your joy, no man can take it from you.”

John 16:22

Because with God there is always restoration, there is always rebuilding, and there is always resurrection. Not of the old, but of the new.

Now let us partake of the bread & rejoice, 
of the body that has taken on death and won.

Now let us lift our cups now & rejoice, 
as we drink the blood that covers all our sins.

Now let us rejoice
in our hearts’
knowing that our
joy has been made
full because of the sacrifice
God 
has made 
for us

Rejoice!


Scriptures:

‘And He said, “Go into the city to a certain man, and say to him, ‘The Teacher says, “My time is at hand; I will keep the Passover at your house with My disciples.”

Matthew 26:18

‘When the hour had come, He sat down, and the twelve apostles with Him. Then He said to them, “With fervent desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer; for I say to you, I will no longer eat of it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.”’

Luke 22:14-16

‘“A little while, and you will not see Me; and again a little while, and you will see Me, because I go to the Father.”’

John 16:16

Most assuredly, I say to you that you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; and you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned into joy. A woman, when she is in labor, has sorrow because her hour has come; but as soon as she has given birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world. Therefore you now have sorrow; but I will see you again and your heart will rejoice, and your joy no one will take from you.’

John 16:20-22

‘And He said to them, “This is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many. Assuredly, I say to you, I will no longer drink of the fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new in the kingdom of God.”’

Mark 14:24-25

‘For this is My blood of the new covenant, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to the disciples and said, “Take, eat; this is My body.”’

Matthew 26:26-28

‘for I say to you, I will no longer eat of it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.” Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, “Take this and divide it among yourselves; for I say to you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.” And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” Likewise He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is shed for you.’

Luke 22:16-20
