@Jimmy_Sellers I am truly amazed by God’s miraculous ways right now. The Holy Spirit has made me very aware of this exact topic just this week. It started earlier in the week when I heard a song and was immediately moved to tears by the overwhelming presence of God.
“We don’t have to slay the lamb anymore,
We don’t have to put the blood on the door.
Someone has taken the place of the lamb,
Jesus the Great I Am.”
The words are so simple, yet they prompted me to dig deeper as I knew it didn’t pierce my heart like that for no reason. I believe God is really revealing details and shifting our focus about things that maybe we were overlooking before.
I believe that Passover aligns with the crucifixion of Jesus Christ while the Day of Atonement aligns with the return of our King.
Lord help me to explain…in Jesus’ Name
When I read through Leviticus 16, I see so many parallels to end time prophecy as revealed in Revelation and the Prophets. I would have to write like a whole book to highlight and give scriptural basis for everything I am seeing, will begin working on that.
For now, let’s pray:
Father, if you are so pleased, by the power of the Holy Spirit and the Blood of your Son Jesus Christ, open the eyes of those who read Leviticus 16 and any other Scripture about the Day of Atonement. May you show them what you are showing me. Speak clearly and give us all deeper understanding that we may build one another up. We pray for the Spirit of Wisdom to move through us and in us. Give us discernment over every false doctrine. Luke 10:23 “Then he turned to his disciples and said privately, ‘Blessed are the eyes that see what you see.’”
May we all see what you have for us. In the name of Jesus, Hallelujah and Amen.
Now about the Lamb of God and the importance of the New Covenant, the absolute Truth that we live in the time of Grace. For the Grace of God has appeared bringing salvation to all(Titus 2:11). I was led to Hebrews, chapter 9, and like any part of the Bible,(a.k.a.The Word of God) it’s all really amazing, and this particular chapter is great for deeper understanding of the importance and character of Jesus.
Passover was to protect God’s people from His wrath. Anytime God’s wrath is unleashed, He always gives His people instruction for protection, as long as they obey and follow God’s commands, they are safe from the wrath. God reigns on the just and the unjust, and although his wrath is too terrible for anyone to withstand, God knows how you cover His people. It’s more than just a way to keep being cleansed, it’s a way to be cleansed, and stay cleansed…as the Bible tells us to " come out from among them". God is giving divine instruction to receive the fullness and purity of Jesus in order to withstand the coming crisis. God is destroying every false doctrine, every ritual, every religious and legalistic way and He’s calling us directly into His heart by the Truth of the simple Gospel of Jesus Christ.
23 Thus it was necessary for the copies of the heavenly things to be purified with these rites, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.
24 For Christ has entered, not into holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true things, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God on our behalf.
25 Nor was it to offer himself repeatedly, as the high priest enters the holy places every year with blood not his own,
26 for then he would have had to suffer repeatedly since the foundation of the world. But as it is, he has appeared once for all at the end of the ages to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.
27 And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment,
28 so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.
