Passover And Quarantine 2020
Putting the Feast post into my house building journal seems appropriate this time. It is our first Passover Seder in the new house. What a perfectly beautiful evening it was with the family. We spent Firstfruits/Resurrection morning watching a church service together. I hope your holiday time was special also.
As for the quarantine, for myself and my husband, life is not too out of the ordinary, except that we now have no construction help. Our building process involves myself, my husband in his time off and occasionally our children. Amazingly, Praise Yeshua, we are making slow progress and are learning to enjoy the process.
This year has been different for everyone in such a way that none of has ever experienced. It was like that at the time of the very first Passover when Moses led the Children of Israel out of Egypt and also when Yeshua came to dwell among the people to identify Himself as Messiah and become the perfect sacrifice for all of mankind. What is God showing us now?
Time will tell, but in the meantime let us keep Him at the center, love our families, and not allow the unfolding events to make us unsettled. This too shall pass, but let us not be left the same as we were before. What a time to be alive!!!
So teach us to number our days, so that we may get a heart of wisdom. Relent, Adonai! How long? Have compassion on Your servants. Satisfy us in the morning with your love, so we may sing for joy and be glad all our days. Gladden us for as many days as you have humbled us, as many years as we have seen misery. Let Your work appear to Your servants, and Your splendor on their children. Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us. Establish the work of our hands for us-- yes, establish the work of our hands. ~Psalm 90:12-17
Feasts Of The Lord: Passover/ Unleavened Bread/ Firstfruits
Get rid of the old yeast, so that you may be a new unleavened batch--as you really are. For Yeshua, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. ~1 Corinthians 5:7
But now Messiah has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead also has come through a Man. For as in Adam all die, so in Messiah will all be made alive. ~1 Corinthians 15:20-22
