Thankfully, Easter and Passover coincide there at the same time as it would've been originally by Easter.
I mean, the time of the death and resurrection of Messiah right in the middle of Passover so Holland to focus on spiritually during the season. Michael Brown welcome to thoroughly Jewish Thursday I modify the recall 866-34-TRUTH 866-34-TRUTH 7884 I will take some of your it usually calls today the bottom of the hour on the switchover to a special guest with an extraordinary testimony, a brilliant Jewish academic a strong believer can hear from him at the bottom of the hour, but a lot of focus first on a very sacred subject all the blood of Jesus washes white as snow as God said many centuries ago when I see the blood, I will pass over you the power the blood of Yeshua. Exodus 12 chapter Exodus chapter 12 as the children of Israel are about to be freed from bondage in Egypt. We read that God instructed the Israelites to take a lamb to kill it and to take the blood of that lamb and put it over the door posts lintels of the house got sick from will go through the land of Egypt, on a night and strike down every firstborn, both men and animals, and I will execute judgments against all the gods of Egypt.
I am than I am the Lord. The blood will be assigned for you on the houses where you are when I see the blood, I will Passover you so there will be no plague among you to destroy you when I strike the length of each. So God was going to bring judgment on Egypt for their oppression of the people of Israel for so many years for their hardness of heart and rebellion. Their idolatry God was going to judge them with the Israelites would be safe because of the blood of the Lamb. When you go out to Exodus chapter 24 Exodus 24 Moses reads to the children of Israel. The, the book of the covenant safe to help greet reads to them further terms of the covenant God's making with Israel. It says he wrote down all the words of Alden.
I than rose up early in the morning and built an altar below the amount along with 12 pillars for the 12 tribes of Israel goes on he reads the words of the book the people say in verse seven all that other than I have spoken we will do and obey them. Verse eight and Moses took the blood wiped my blood because the covenant is made with blood. He took the blood and sprinkled it on the people and said, behold, the blood of the covenant which denies cut with you in agreement with all these words in ancient Jewish tradition as the words of atonement. Blood of the covenant for atonement notice.
The covenant is made with the shedding of blood. When you go down to Exodus chapter 29 Exodus 29 the consecration of the priests bowl is to be slaughtered. Verse 12 and take the blood of the bull put it on the horns of the altar with your finger import all the remaining blood of the base of the office of the altar of sacrifice is consecrated with blood in verse 15. Take one RAM have Aaron and his sons laid their hands upon the head of the ram's M tickets blood, sprinkle it around the altar, then verse 18, 19, then take the other RAM have Aaron and his sons laid their hands on the head of that ram's M tickets blood and debit on the tip of the right ear baron on the tip. The writers of us on the thumb of the right hands of the big toes of the right feet and pour the blood on the altar around so the altar the altar sacrifice is sanctified by bloodshed by the substitutionary sacrifice and the priests are consecrated to the Lord through the same blood. It's over and over and over about Exodus chapter 30 verse 10 and I'm just giving a selection to show you how important blood was in ancient Israel. Exodus chapter 30% areas to make atonement on the horns of the altar once a year with the blood of the sin offering throughout your generations, its most holy to not so there was to be a consecrating every year a cleansing, a purging and XP aiding of the very temple altered the tabernacle altar and the utensils involved. They had to be cleansed and purified because they were in the midst of ascending people they would be likely in the midst of someone smoking cigarettes are surrounded by that you smell like smoke. So the very tabernacle had to be sanctified and cleansed and consecrated. XP aided that was done with blood every year. Liska Leviticus chapter 16. It wasn't just the tabernacle.
That would be cleansed by blood, look at this verse 14. This is day of atonement is then Aaron, the high priestess than to take some of the blood of the bull sprinkle it with a spring on the atonement cover on the east side before the atomic Arista sprinkle some of the blood with his finger seven times. Then he is to slaughter the goat of the sin offering, which is for the people bring its blood behind the curtain and do with it as he did with the blood of the bull sprinkle it upon the atonement cover and before the atonement cover so he is to make atonement for the holy place or to expiate clans.
The holy place because of the uncleanness of B'nai Israel, the children of Israel because of their transgressions all their sins.
It's all done with blood cleansing and purifying with blood.
Leviticus 1711 and explaining why blood is not to be eaten. Leviticus 1711 says this for the life of the creature is in the blood and I've given that you on the altar to make atonement for your lies, for it is the blood that makes atonement because of the life as Ross you the foremost Jewish biblical commentator said was the thousand years ago. It is the principle of life for life.
So here the life of the animal's sacrifice is taken to pay for the life of the sinning worshiper. It is substitutionary it is life for life.
The only thing that could cleanse and purify the temple and tabernacle was blood everything that could be used. Atonement was blood and then coupled with repentance. God would accept without the blood, the foundation was missing. We go to Luke chapter 22 as Jesus is with his disciples a shoe at the Last Supper is about to be betrayed them and what is he say Luke chapter 22 verse 30 he says just my father's granted me a kingdom so I grant you that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and you shall set up on thrones judging the 12 tribes of Israel, and in this very same account. He said to them, I'm not going to drink with you again until I drink with you in the kingdom and this cup this cup that I'm drinking it is the cup of my blood of the cup of the new covenant of my blood.
John chapter 6 look at this, John six beginning in verse 53. She was says to the Jewish crowd, amen, amen. I tell you this you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in yourselves. You eats my flesh and drinks my blood is eternal life, and I will raise him up on the listed obviously metaphorically they were not to physically eat his flesh and physically drink his blood, but he's talk about the power of the sacrificial death. The power of his blood for my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me and I in him, just as the living father sent me and I would because the father so the one who eats at me also lives because of me. Ask chapter 20 verse 28.
How does Paul characterize the price that was paid for the church for the congregation. Acts 2028. Take care of yourselves and all the flock, of which the roof of coitus. The Holy Spirit has made you overseers to shepherd the community of God which he obtained the blood of his own blood of his own son. Romans chapter 5 verse nine just reminding you of these things don't go through the verses enough how much more than having been now set right by his blood shall be saved from God's wrath through him through Jesus as the Messiah died for us. We have been set right. We have been justified by his blood.
Ephesians chapter 1 verse seven, Paul writes this in him we have redemption through his blood redemption.
Removal of trespasses. Ephesians chapter 2 verse 13, Paul writes this and again. The moment God saves us were washed cleanse, redeem, were made righteous was set apart as holy or trespasses are removed. Ephesians 213 but now in Messiah Yeshua you who once were far off Gentile world.
You have been brought near by the blood of the Messiah. Hebrews what is this amazing theme in Hebrews chapter 9 beginning verse 12, Jesus entered into the holies once for all, not by the blood of goats and calves, by his own blood, having obtained eternal redemption for the blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkling those who been defiled sanctified to the cleansing of the flesh, how much more how much more shouted from the rooftops. The blood of Messiah, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, cleanse our conscience from dead works to serve the living God was written in Hebrews 922 summing up so much was written in the Torah. Nearly everything is purified and blood.
According to the torso so much about was set apart, purified by blood and apart from the shedding of blood is no forgiveness. The whole foundation of the atonement system.
Israel was based sacrificial offerings, substitutionary offerings, blood without that there is no Tolman and ultimately what you doing it's pointing forward to the cross Hebrews chapter 10 verse 19 therefore, brothers and sisters we have boldness to enter into the holy place by the blood of Jesus boldness to enter into the holy place. How about you she was blood. Hebrews chapter 13 verses 11 and 12.
The bodies of those animals whose blood is brought to the holy place of the holies by the Keohane gondola high priest as an offering for sin are burned outside the camp. Therefore, to make the people holy through his own blood.
Jesus made you holy through his own blood. Yeshua also suffered outside the gate and then Hebrews chapter 13 verse 20 says this may the God of shalom brought up from the dead, the great Shepherd of the sheep by the blood of an everlasting covenant Lord Yeshua complete in every good thing was Peter say first Peter chapter 1 verses 18 and 19. You know, you redeem from the futile way of life handed down from your ancestors, not with perishable things such as silver and gold, but with precious blood, like that of a lamb without defect response. The blood of Messiah first John 17 says this, we have fellowship one with another. If you walk in the light as he himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another and the blood of his son Yeshua purifies us from all sin. The book of Revelation chapter 1 verse five says that he is the one freed us from our sins by his blood. Revelation chapter 5 verse nine all of creation sings out the worthy to take the scroll's physics is plain silly. Blood God is by donation.
How blood of the lamp with anything with the testing asthma number and it's the line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown get into the line of fire now by calling 866-34-TRUTH here again is Dr. Michael Brown telling I gave a sampling a small sampling versus the power and importance of blood in Scripture and ran out of time in my segment.
Revelation 1211 that the saints God's people became Satan by the blood of the Lamb were the testimony by not living their lives, even to the point of death notice. Notice throughout Scripture there is importance about the blood and then there is often focus on the Lamb that's restarted in Exodus 12 that the blood of the Lamb would be used in Passover and when God saw that blood would pass over his people and he would not destroy what is John the Mercer John the Baptist say in John 129 when he sees Jesus coming he says behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. Notice is not likened to a goat you had goats that were sacrificial animals in Leviticus is like a jewel Lamb Lamb ties back with Passover lamb ties back with the larger redemption of Israel from bondage and the Lamb speaks of that image of sacrifice of non-resistance.
Look what Paul writes in first Corinthians chapter 5 first Corinthians 5 verse six your boasting is not good, don't you know the little comments a little leaven leavens the whole batch of dough get rid of the old leaven, so you may be a new batch, just as you are on leaven for Messiah, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.
That's how we spoke of their our Passover meaning, our Passover lamb. He has been sacrificed and that reminds me of Isaiah chapter 53. The poignant picture of the servant of the Lord who dies for our sins. Verse six we are like sheep groceries. We've strayed like sheep without a shepherd garlic like sheep going astray, each of us is trying to resolve voice or deny has laid on him the iniquity of us all for him. As for Yeshua, he was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth like a lamb led to the slaughter sheep before he sure is a silent, so he did not open his mouth, and I think back to the book of Genesis as Abraham is being tested by God. Be willing to sacrifice his son Isaac and Esther going to the mountain.
I success to Abram's father. My father then he said around my son said, look, here's the fire in the wood carrying the torch and I suspect the wood on his shoulders, but where is the lamb for a burnt offering.
Abraham said God will provide for himself a lamb for a burnt offering, my son. We know what happens as Abraham was about to sacrifice Isaac believe that he did govern Grayson from the dead as she's ready to do that the ends of the Lord present no normal. Don't touch up don't don't touch the board don't touch and then Abraham looks up in their stock think it is Rams Horn stuck in Abraham goes and sacrifices the RAM with the Lamb.
Whatever happened to the Lamb. The Lamb of God is come the Lamb of God has laid his life down for the sins of the world and when we put our trust in him. Jew or Gentile. We are cleansed we are washed the internal vision that God gave me that radically change my life happened. December 17 71 is a Jewish rebel as it kid full of sin, getting high playing drums in a rock band cruel hearted even stole money from own father liar proud God was dealing with the friends we pray for God was convict me of my sin. I now believed that Jesus died for me, but I will similarly change December 1771 just a little church service worshiping with other Christians. I became flooded with joy, the Lord overwhelmingly flooded with joy, the Lord, the revelation of his goodness.
I have prayed and said Jesus come into my life and I believe he died for my sins, rose from the dead, but I really mean that I would live for him or serve him. I was under heavy conviction, and suddenly I saw myself as as completely filthy from head to toy recognize that this joy was a reflection of God's love is different than anything I'd ever experienced in the school and ended that moment I saw myself filthy from head to toe just ugly filthy from head to tell, and the blood of Jesus washing I just saw the semi matzoh wash me clean completely put these beautiful robes on white robes and I was going back and playing in the month and right then I support I will never put a needle in my arm again is free from that moment on all Washington's points. No excuse around the world are in a different situation because of the virus. The pandemic enjoying Passover Seder and this time, which is so communal.enjoy it is the local small families with large families under one household in the one roof is pray that God would open their eyes, pray that this would be a miraculous use of the Jewish people turning to the Lamb of God, 866-34-TRUTH. Let's go to Sally in Indianapolis. Thanks for holding welcome to the line of fire. Yes, I can have that but that I really haven't been here that I and applied at
