Jesus Christ: Our Passover
King of Eternity
Today is Passover Day. Today is the day we begin the preparation, the festivities for celebrating Jesus Christ, the Lord’s Supper before He is beaten, killed and hung on the Cross for three days, then He rises this Sunday, Easter–the day proclaimed He is Risen into eternity.
Jesus and His Disciples Prepare the Passover:
7 Then came the Day of Unleavened Bread, when the Passover must be killed.8 And He sent Peter and John, saying, “Go and prepare the Passover for us, that we may eat.” 9 So they said to Him, “Where do You want us to prepare?” 10 And He said to them, “Behold, when you have entered the city, a man will meet you carrying a pitcher of water; follow him into the house which he enters. 11 Then you shall say to the master of the house, ‘The Teacher says to you, “Where is the guest room where I may eat the Passover with My disciples?”’ 12 Then he will show you a large, furnished upper room; there make ready.” 13 So they went and found it just as He had said to them, and they prepared the Passover.
Jesus Institutes the Lord’s Supper:
14 When the hour had come, He sat down, and the twelve apostles with Him.15 Then He said to them, “With fervent desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer; 16 for I say to you, I will no longer eat of it until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of God.” 17 Then He took the cup, and gave thanks, and said, “Take this and divide it among yourselves; 18 for I say to you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.” 19 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.” 20 Likewise He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is shed for you. (Luke 22:7-20) (source: Biblegateway)
Crown of Jewels:
Are you aware that it was prophesied (foretold) that you are like the jewels of a crown over His Head? You have been divinely crafted by the Master Craftsman. You are a multi-faceted human being created in His image by the multi-faceted God, shinier than diamonds, and stronger than gold.
Your DNA is instilled with ideas, strength, endurance, radiating a beam of life–a light in the darkness, because of His life giving enduring grace!
The Lord their God will save them in that day, As the flock of His people. For they shall be like the jewels of a crown, Lifted like a banner over His land—(Zechariah 9:16)
Jesus Christ is our soon coming King, to claim His own into His eternal Kingdom.
Do You Know Him?
That’s My King
