What the LORD is doing...
A Special Holiday Note From Co-Founder Dov Schwarz
Dear Blessing Israeli Believers Partners,
Shalom and Happy Pesach (Passover)! This is such a special time not only in Israel, not only amongst the Jewish people worldwide, but for all those who call upon the Name of Messiah Yeshua (Jesus)! After all, He is the Passover Lamb!
John 1:29: The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, "Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!
Passover this year begins the evening of April 10 and lasts until the 17th. This time reminds us that the Jewish people were in bondage in Egypt under the heavy hand of the Pharaoh. Then the LORD sent His deliverer Moses who brought the message in Exodus 12: "Let My people go!"
Our Father in heaven also sent His Great Deliverer, Messiah Yeshua as His name means "Jehovah or the LORD saves." The bondage of sin is the worst slavery ever and leads to eternal destruction. Yet Messiah Yeshua calls out and commands Satan to let go of Abba Father's people, Jew and Gentile, all around the world!
He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. 1 John 3
In Exodus 12 the Jewish people were commanded to place the blood of the lamb on the doorposts of their homes. Having done this they would be protected from the final judgment upon Egypt-the death of the firstborn. Death would 'passover' the house with the blood of the Lamb.
Today as we trust in Messiah Jesus the blood of the Lamb is applied to our heart. This means that when we face the judgment in the next life God's wrath will 'passover' the person that has the blood of the Lamb Messiah Yeshua! We now have everlasting life!!!
How are we commanded to keep the Feast of Passover today? The Apostle Paul answers in 1 Corinthians 5. The answer may be a surprise to many as Paul is addressing blatant and over the top wicked sin in the body of Messiah:
1 Corinthians 5:6-8 Your glorying is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us. Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
Here we see the way we keep the Passover in this New Covenant today. We live holy New Covenant unleavened lives of sincerity and truth. "Unleavened" pertains to the bread without yeast that is a picture of the life of Messiah Jesus-unleavened-without sin. Though we cannot live fully sinless until we receive sinless bodies-we can live a life of sincere devotion that reflects the life of the truth of who Messiah Jesus is. He is the way, the truth and the life!
This Passover season, please also remember the Believers in Messiah Yeshua here in Israel as we, by grace, are the light to our Jewish brothers in the Promised Land.

Romans 15:26-27 For it hath pleased them of Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain contribution for the poor saints which are at Jerusalem. It hath pleased them verily; and their debtors they are. For if the Gentiles have been made partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is also to minister unto them in carnal (material) things.
