Why is this night different?

Question of the day: Why is this night different from all other nights?

Answer: This is the big question as we begin celebrating Passover (Pesach). God has given us a huge image; a distinction between the heathen and the faithful. Those who have the sign of the cross of blood are protected and those who do not are visited by the angel of death. Could the picture be any clearer?

The lamb is slain - John 1:29 "The next day, John sees Yeshua coming to him and says, 'Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!'"

His blood - Romans 3:25 "God set forth Yeshua as an atonement, through faith in His blood, to show His righteousness in passing over sins already committed."

The cross - 1 Corinthians 1:18 "For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God."

Leads us to resurrected life - Philippians 3:10-11 "My aim is to know Him and the power of His resurrection and the sharing of His sufferings, becoming like Him in His death - if somehow I might arrive at the resurrection from among the dead."

I hope this blessed you to read it. It blessed me to write it. Shalom.
