Passover Easter

Categories: All Posts, Audio Teachings

Shalom everyone! In preparation for the coming Passover season, I thought it might be useful for some of you to hear these two different teachings: Messiah in the Passover and our teaching The Easter Story: Peter Cottontail Exposed. Collectively, these two teachings total about four hours but the usefulness will be in comparing the Biblical feast of Passover with the religious holiday of Easter. In short, after listening to both, perhaps you will be inclined to "passover Easter."

Messiah in the Passover (part 1)

 

Messiah in the Passover (part 2)

 

The Easter Story (part 1)

 

The Easter Story (part 2)

 

Messiah in the Passover
This two hour album is the first in the three part Biblical feast series. Bill not only explains how the Passover was celebrated, but paints an elaborate picture of how the Passover celebration was simply a rehearsal for the Messiah's suffering. In this album you will also learn why Pharaoh decided to pursue the Israelites after allowing them to go free. Also learn the association between the Exodus story and Joseph of Arimathea and much more. Passover is the logical place to start in understanding our lost Hebraic heritage and this album can certainly get you started on the right foot.

The Easter Story
In this two-part series, Bill studies the pagan origins of Easter and many of the customs associated with it. More importantly, Bill attempts to show the dramatic distinctions between Easter and the biblical holydays (i.e. Passover, Unleavened Bread and Firstfruits) and how God's feast days have been mixed with the pagan practices of past civilizations. Startling as the information may be to some, the teaching is not intended to condemn but to educate believers in how the Adversary has cleverly mingled profane practices with the holy things of God. After hearing this information, perhaps the listener will be challenged to separate the traditions of men from the truth of God.

    This year we were blessed to celebrate with some Christian friends. They were open to Passover. He had some questions though and I thought to pass along to see if you had any insight. He was wondering about Elijah and wanted to know why he is mentioned in the Haggadah, since he wasn’t there with Moses and the first Passover. I told him that in Malachi it says that Elijah will return before Messiah comes. Also that the scriptures say that the Law and the Prophets point to Messiah. Moses represents the Law and Elijah the Prophets. I myself hadn’t thought of this, but he was curious because he says these are things not taught in church and was open to learning more about Passover. If you have any other observations that would helpful. Blessings to you

      Jon. You provided your friend with the basic information he needed to resolve his question. If you want more info about Elijah, check out the post called “Days of Elijah.” Shalom!

    Shalom Bill; thank you for such an accurate analogy of the facts and falsehoods that permeate throughout our faith….
    I have a couple of very specific questions I really need an answer to;

    Are we in keeping the Passover to only eat lamb in Jerusalem?

    Has eating lamb been done away with and has now been transitioned to eating Matzo?

    I can only hope you will be able to answer this “before” this Passover…
    I can definitely see the “understanding” of the greater meaning of Christ being the “Bread of Life” and his body being broken at the last supper….. In everything the Lord does He always provides a confirmation of sorts throughout His Word… ie; the stripping and piercing of the Motzo etc..,
    Again, thank you so much for letting your light shine in a way that allows others to help distinguish the difference between the Holy and profane, the Clean and unclean, the Truth and the lie…
    There is nothing that is more crucial than that…..
    And yes, I have purchased your teachings on the feast days, however these points I am asking of are not “exactly” clear…
    Shalom to you and your family….

      Jaime; First of all, sorry for the delay in answering you. As far as your question, I will tell you my opinion based on what I understand from the Scriptures. When it comes to eating lamb at Passover, my family never has because I believe as Paul wrote, “indeed Messiah, our Passover, was sacrificed for us” – 1 Corinthians 5:7. Y’shua Himself said to take and eat of the matzah because it represents His body. Therefore, the matzah has come to represent The LAMB in our house. Judaism believes the afikomen specifically is synonymous with the lamb that was offered in the days of the Temple. That being said, I don’t fall out with people who choose to eat lamb at Passover with the understanding they are not offering or partaking of a Pesach offering. It is not equivalent to the lamb offered in the days of the Sanctuary and Temple because a) there is currently no appointed place to bring that offering and b) Y’shua is our Pesach offering. As far as doing this only in Jerusalem – where was the first Passover observed? We are in exile and we are trying to work out our salvation with fear and trembling, therefore, I don’t claim to be the final authority on the particulars. Still, this what I feel in my heart and what I will continue to do until the Father shows me otherwise. Shalom and Chag Sameach!

    The question that has me stumped when atheists or anti-missionaries try to corner me is: How does one account for Mithras, Tammuz, Horus & etc. have so much similarity to Yeshua’s birth, life, death, and/or resurrection? How would Satan have known these details? Yahweh hid his plan in the Tanakh, but I imagine most of these false deities’ storylines were well developed before Moses wrote the Torah. I’m thinking either Satan had some privileged information prior to his fall or he is one heck of a good guesser.

    • Bill says:

      Kim; I don’t think he guessed I just think he’s really good at twisting the truth. These traditions of other nations does suggest that he knew something doesn’t it? Shalom.

  5. Kim Rickman says:

    I was searching for the scripture recently with the keywords “tear down the pillars” and in the google search results was a Muslim website with the article title “what every Muslim should know about Easter and Christmas. Curiosity got the best of me, and I read it and it was sadly very true giving the true origins of these religious observances. This article really opened my eyes to a perspective I hadn’t had before. They are raising up their people to eliminate the world of paganism, that was the focus, not Christianity, but paganism. Sadly there’s so much of that in the church system, it makes for an obvious target. From what was written on that site, it seems likely the Muslims will be the ones “tearing down their pillars.” I wonder why it is that these people understand the history of Easter and Christmas the very first time they’re told and many of our own family members reject it. Would the people continuing in these non-biblical observances stop if they understood what the Muslims are teaching their people?

    • Bill says:

      Kim; Good question. Obviously we need to continue praying for our family members, friends and ourselves that the Creator will lead us out of falsehood, man-made traditions and anything else that would prevent us from following him wholeheartedly. Shalom.
