God can free you from bondage – just like the Israelites!
Then Moses summoned all the elders of Israel and said to them, “Go at once and select the animals for your families and slaughter the Passover lamb. (Exodus 12:21)
What can you do to remember the Passover today?
This evening begins the Jewish feast of Passover. Today, I celebrate Passover by having a prophetic meal on Mount Nebo where Moses died. I’m with a team of worship leaders, intercessors, and prophets, across the Jordan River from Israel.
The Passover Seder is a special Jewish ritual which takes place on the first evening of the Jewish holiday of Passover (the 14th day of Nisan on the Hebrew calendar) in Israel, and on the first and second evenings of Passover (the 15th and 16th days of Nisan) in the Jewish diaspora. The next ones being on Monday night April 2 and Tuesday night April 3, 2007. Incorporating the holiday meal, the Seder relives the enslavement and subsequent Exodus of the Children of Israel from Ancient Egypt through the words of the Haggadah, the drinking of Four Cups of Wine, the eating of matzot, and the eating of and reference to symbolic foods placed on the Passover Seder Plate.
The Seder is considered an integral aspect of Jewish faith and identity. As the Haggadah—which contains the complete Seder service—explains, without the Exodus, the Jews would still be slaves to the Egyptian Pharaoh and would never have realized their role as a nation. Therefore this is an occasion for much praise and thanksgiving to God. It is considered a mitzvah (commandment) to embellish one’s retelling of the Exodus on this night. Often the Seder lasts into the early hours of the morning of the next day, as participants continue to learn Torah and talk about the events of the night and sing special Passover songs included in the Haggadah.
Unlike other public holiday observances that are traditionally held in the synagogue, the Seder is specifically designed to be conducted by a family at home, with or without guests.
Father, today we remember how You delivered the nation of Israel after 400 years of captivity when the Angel of Death “passed over” all homes with the blood of a lamb on their doorposts. We remember how Jesus is the ultimate Passover Lamb. May You release the people and financial resources of America to the world this 2007 year when we celebrate America’s 400th Anniversary. In the mighty name of Yeshua Messiah, I pray. Amen.

There is tremendous power in a testimony. “And they overcame him (the devil) by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.” – Revelations 12:11
