There are God's commandments and Satan's commandments. Of course, we must keep God's commandments, but Satan's ones mustn't be kept. What about the Passover then? If that is God's commandment, we shall keep it. Or not, we can ignore it. Let's look into it through the Bible.
Ex.12:1~14 ....it is is the LORD's Passover....This is a day you are to commemorate; for the generations to come you shall celebrate it as a festival to the LORD-a lasting ordinance.
In the Old Testament Time, who ordered to celebrate the Passover? LORD God, Jehovah.
It was the commandment of God. After Israelites kept it, they could be released from the slavery lives. They could receive the blessing from God and finally they went back to their forefather's land, Canaan.
Then, is it only the commandment which should be kept in the Old Testament Time?
Who commanded to keep the Passover in the New Testament? Jesus. God.
It is God's feast which we must keep in the New Testament as well as in the Old Testament Times. Then why did Jesus command us to keep the Passover in the New Testament Times, Now?
John. 6:53~ Jesus said to them, " I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life.
How can we have eternal life? By eating Jesus's flesh and drinking his blood. How can we have Jesus's flesh and drink his blood?
We can have eternal life when we celebrate the Passover. That's why Jesus let us keep the Passover. Then why did he want us to have eternal life? It's easy to understand when we understand the heaven.
Rev. 21:4~ He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.
There is no death in heaven, but eternal life. Unless we become immortal beings, we can never enter there. In order for us to go to the kingdom of heaven, he wanted us to keep the Passover.
The Passover is God's commandment which God can let us know. We believe in Him and keep the Passover.
