Passover

PURPOSE OF THE FEAST

In Leviticus 23:2 YHVH tells us, “These are My appointed festivals, the appointed festivals of Yahuah, as a Holy Convocation which you are to proclaim as sacred assemblies.”  They are YHVH’s specially appointed times available to all His followers.  In Hebrew, the word “convocation” means “miqra”, spoken as “Mik-raw” which means “rehearsal”. What does the word rehearsal mean? Rehearsal is defined as “the act of practicing in preparation for public performance event”. When we practice the Feasts, we are preparing for the return of our Savior and King Yahusha/Yahshua (Christ). The Feasts have prophetic significance. The Three Annual Feasts, Exodus 23:14-19

  • Feast of Unleavened Bread or Passover. Hebrew Pesach (includes Day of First Fruits)
  • Feast of Harvest or Pentecost or Weeks. Hebrew Shavuot.
  • Feast of Ingathering or Feast of Booths or Tabernacles. Hebrew Sukkot. (Includes Eight Day)

PURPOSE OF THE PASSOVER

The Passover is a Holy Day Feast in which we remember how the Most High saved our forefathers from the hard bondage in Egypt under Pharaoh by sending great wonders and plagues, the last of which was the angel of death. Only those who had the blood of the lamb sacrificed by Moses and Elders of Israel upon their door posts would be saved from that plague, but those that did not all the first born of the Egyptians and their cattle were slain by the angel of death.

PASSOVER SCRIPTURE READING

  • Leviticus 23:5-8
  • I Corinthians 5:7-13
  • Exodus 12:1-16, 24

PROPHETIC EXPLANATION OF THE PASSOVER

Points to the Messiah as our passover lamb whose blood would be shed for our sins. Yahusha/Yahshua was crucified on the day of preparation for the Passover, at the same time that the lambs were being slaughtered for the Passover meal that evening. This was a preparation for the Most High sending his son Yahusha/Yahshua to also be a lamb without blemish or without sin in order to be sacrificed for the nation of Israel, so that all that is under his blood can be saved from death and receive eternal life being restored back to the Father through Yahusha/Yahshua. (Galatians 4:4-5). He is our Great High Priest and became our Sacrificial Lamb. The Feast are forever (Exodus 12:24) but the Lamb has already been provided.

PROPHETIC SYMBOLS OF THE PASSOVER

  • For seven days for the festival by cleansing our homes of all leaven (yeast), which is a symbol of sin, according to the commandment found in Exodus 12:19: Yahusha/Yahshua went to the Temple before the Passover Festival and cleansed it of the “leaven”—the corruption of the money changers doing business within. (John 2:13–16)
  • Yahusha/Yahshua came into the city of Jerusalem five days before the lamb was killed in the temple as the Passover sacrifice for the sins of the people of Israel. Five days before the lamb was to be sacrificed, it was chosen.
  • The original celebration centered around the Passover lamb, which was sacrificed and its blood put over the doorposts as a sign of faith, so that Yahuah passed over the houses of our ancestors during the last plague poured out on the Egyptians - the killing of every firstborn. (Exodus 12:21-23). Today His Blood covers us now.
  • The Passover lamb was to be a "male without defect, which is the same description given to Yahusha/Yahshua. He was perfect. (Exodus 12:5) (1 Peter 1:18-19)
  • When the lamb was roasted and eaten, none of its bones were to be broken. (Exodus 12:46)This fact was also prophesized for the Messiah, whose bones were not to be broken. (Psalms 34:20).It was customary during crucifixion to break the leg bones of the person after a few hours in order to hasten their death. However, in the case of Yahusha/Yahshua, they broke the legs of the other two men, but did not break His, since He was already dead.  (John 19:32, 3336)
  • The day Yahusha/Yahshua was crucified was the day of the Passover celebration and the day that the Passover lamb was to be sacrificed. For the previous 1,200 years, the priest would blow the shophar (ram's horn) at 3:00 p.m. - the moment the lamb was sacrificed, and all the people would pause to contemplate the sacrifice for sins on behalf of the people of Israel. At 3:00,(Matthew 27:46, 50) when Yahusha/Yahshua was being crucified, He said, "It is finished" (John 19:30) - at the moment that the Passover lamb was sacrificed and the shophar was blown from the Temple.
  • The sacrifice of the Lamb of YHVH was fulfilled at the hour that the symbolic animal sacrifice usually took place. At the same time, the veil of the Temple (a three-inch thick, several story high cloth that demarked the Holy of Holies) (Hebrews 9:3) tore from top to bottom (Matthew 27:51)- representing a removal of the separation between YHVH and man.
  • Fifty days later, on the anniversary of the giving of the law (Pentecost), YHVH left the earthly temple to inhabit those who call on the name of Yahusha/Yahshua through His Holy Spirit.
  • In the scriptures the whole congregation had to slay the Lamb. In Yahusha/Yahshua’s day, the whole congregation slew him as they ask to pardon Barabbas. Sinful Blood cannot cover sin. It has to be innocent blood.

SYMBOLS OF THE ELEMENTS OF PASSOVER

Lamb Shank Bone: The unbroken, unblemished shank bone reminds us of Yahusha/Yahshua’s crucifixion in that it always remains an unbroken bone. During Roman times, ALL crucified people were to have their leg bones broken, but YHVH gave the Messiah’s unbroken legs as one of the signs of His identity because the Passover Lamb’s bones were never broken (Exodus 12:46 and Numbers 9:12). Yahusha/Yahshua is our Passover Lamb.

Matzoh (Unleavened Bread): Used for the Passover Seder must be unleavened—leaven is often equated with sin in the Scriptures, and Yahusha/Yahshua is sinless. Second, the matzoh must be striped—Yahusha/Yahshua’ “stripes” (His wounds) are what heal us spiritually (Isaiah 53:5). And, third, the matzoh must be pierced—Yahusha/Yahshua was nailed to the cross (Psalm 22:16).The other elements of the Seder plate are traditional reminders of the Israelite enslavement to the Egyptians. They are as follows:

Wine (Grape Juice): There are also four cups of wine used at various points during the Seder. Each of these glasses of wine has a name: the first glass is the “cup of sanctification.” The second is the “cup of judgment.” The third is the “cup of redemption.” And the fourth is the “cup of praise.” At the Last Supper, Yahusha/Yahshua took the first cup and promised His disciples that the next time He drank the fruit of the vine with them would be in the kingdom (Luke 22:17). Later in the Seder, Yahusha/Yahshua took the third cup—the cup of redemption—and used that cup as a symbol of the New Covenant in His blood (Luke 22:20).

Bitter Herbs (Maror) – The eating of “bitter herbs” is commanded in Exodus 12:8. In modern times, this is usually horseradish, one of the bitterest herbs. The maror reminds the Jews that they were unable to offer sacrifice and worship to YHVH, and that was bitterer than the slavery of Egypt.

Vegetable (Karpas) – This element, usually parsley, is dipped in salt water and eaten. The karpas pictures the hyssop that was used to apply the blood of the Passover lamb to homes of the Israelites in Egypt. In the New Testament, hyssop was used to give the Lamb of YHVH vinegar when Yahusha/Yahshua said He thirsted (John 19:29). The salt water represents the tears shed during the bitter years of slavery and the Red Sea that YHVH split during the exodus.

Charoset: (haroseth): – Charoset is a mixture of apples, nuts, wine, and spices. It represents the mortar the Israelites used in the constructing buildings during their slavery to the Egyptians. Of all the elements of the Seder, charoset alone is sweet, and this is a reminder of the hope of redemption. To the Believer, the Charoset reminds us that even the worst of circumstances can be sweetened when have the hope of Messiah in our lives.

Passover, as with all YHVH’s appointed Feasts, is rife with symbolism that YHVH gave us to deepen our walk with Him. Symbols speak louder than either words or pictures. And symbols are YHVH’s language. Practicing the rituals YHVH gave us to remind us of His ways is how we gain the deeper knowledge of Him called the meat of the Word´

COVID Policies

COVID POLICIES

Based on Mississippi State’s guidelines, the Great Awakening will operate using the Concentric Circle of Infection Prevention model. This model suggests that in absence of medical risk factors, the likelihood of contracting an infectious disease is diminished by combining diligent social distancing practices with a reduced amount of exposure time around other people. To replicate this model, we have modified our Passover 2022 procedures in the following ways.

COVID-19 Screening Stations will in Place to Keep Everyone Safe

For participants of Passover who plan to be on the grounds of Batesville Civic Center, the first stop upon arrival will be at one of the COVID-19 screening stations. At the stations, GA participants will be greeted by a friendly volunteer whose role is to help keep you safe.

The relevant risks of COVID-19 mean we must prioritize the importance of safety procedures in our operations. Screening stations at entrances to Potawatomi Inn’s Conference Center’s facilities serve a critical role to ensure we are keeping each other safe.

GA volunteers will continue to staff the screening stations. New or additional screeners will be added as needed.

Please remember that volunteers who serve as screeners are working to keep everyone safe. As you enter facilities, be sure to do your part by coming prepared. You will be greeted by a screener who is required to check for the following:

Are wearing a mask covering your nose and mouth

  • Why? Facilities where screening stations are located are subject to masking guidelines and require everyone to wear a facemask to protect themselves and others.
  • Remember: Carry your mask with you at all times to conserve masks at screening stations.

They will check your temperature to ensure yours is less than 100 degrees

  • Why? To check for low grade fever that maybe associated with COVID-19 infection

They will perform a COVID-19 symptom check by asking a brief series of questions

  • Why? To check for new onset of symptoms that maybe associated with COVID-19 infection

After passing the screening process, you must wear a current day screening sticker.

In an effort to minimize illness at our event we ask that you check your health daily beginning 10 days prior to the Great Awakening event. We want to make sure we are starting our events “clean” with healthy Participants and this begins at home. Please bring this completed form with you at the beginning of the event.

Modesty & Alcohol Statement

While the Great Awakening International are unaware of the lifestyles of all individuals who are invited as guests to our PUBLIC EVENTS & FEAST DAYS, we will hereby enforce a very strict modesty code that is reflective of righteousness and modesty as Torah-observant believers.

Our public events are mainly family oriented events where children will be present. Any inappropriateness that does not promote a Kodesh lifestyle can have a negative impact on impressionable children. We are committed to do what most children cannot do for themselves; guard themselves from unnecessary temptations and environments where inappropriateness is allowed.

Furthermore, we are far from the “Fashion Police,”“Cleavage Patrol” and Modesty Mafia” however, seductive and enticing apparel will not be welcomed at Great Awakening International future events, as it serves as a unhealthy temptation and is not synonymous with a Set-Apart environment.

We’re cognizant that modesty is subjective and can be distinguishable from culture to culture. It can be ambiguous. Modesty has a wide lane, primarily because it's unknown what actually increases the desires of others (example: open toe shoes may catch the attention of someone who has a feet fetish). If it's even a question of "is this appropriate?" then chances are, it's not.

Men and women are similar in their temptation to sin. These things affect both genders- “The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life.”  Both men and women have to be on guard against those things.

Proverbs 4:23 says, “Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.”
Proverbs 23:7 says, “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.”

Immodesty is an issue of the heart.  We recognize that how attendees dress on the outside says a lot about what is going on in the inside. “The train of sin runs on tracks that were laid in the heart.”  When one dresses inappropriately for set-apart events, they must be very honest with themselves about their motives.
-Why do I dress like I do?
-What kind of reactions am I trying to get?

The Great Awakening International is a proponent that our community should be unique and specific in our dress and look different from the world. Furthermore, the Great Awakening International is a proponent that men should wear attire gender-specific for men and women should wear clothing gender-tailored for women. No registered participant will be allowed enter into our SET-APART events wearing apparel that is specifically made for the opposite gender.

While we are open to unawakened nonbelievers to attend our events, in hopes of sharing the Truth to them, we will not tolerate inappropriate behavior, dress, or speech. Modesty is born from a genuine heart to not stir up the desires in others that can’t be fulfilled righteously.

Modesty is an attitude of propriety and decency in dress, grooming, language, and behavior. If we are modest, we do not draw undue attention to ourselves. Instead, we seek to “glorify Yah in [our] body, and in [our] spirit” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). Immodesty increases sin and a distraction among men. (Leviticus 19:29)

As the Children of Israel, our clothing expresses our values, customs and ultimately who we are. It sends messages about us, and it influences the way we as Israel act. When we are modestly dressed, we can invite the companionship of the Ruach and exercise a good influence on those around us.

Therefore, all participants and their invited guests to the Great Awakening International Set-Apart events must avoid clothing that is revealing or extreme in appearance in order to engage in our set apart events.

Moving forward, registration will include a modesty clause that attendees must adhere to. This will be reflected on ALL future registration forms. All attendees and their guests must sign this modesty clause in order to secure their entry into our set-apart event.

Dressing modestly is our way of telling the world that we don’t play by their rules – we play by Yah’s rules.

Anyone that shows up to any Great Awakening International set-apart event not dressed to par will be reminded of the modesty clause that they signed, refunded their monies, and turned away from the event in love (Ephesians 4:15; 4:29; Colossians 4:6), never with personal opinions, judging or shaming, and never accompanied by gossip (Proverbs 11:12-13 ;21:23).

We recognize the immodest person as a soul. This is why we have employed a new system of confronting the individual in a loving, biblical way with the hopes of conversion. We recognize that immodest behavior is typically a symptom of a deeper heart issue and we want to minister to the heart before we change their attire.

However, public events (where registration is necessary) will be treated differently from outdoor outreaches and weekly Sabbath Gatherings where there is a chance that a guest can show up without knowledge of our modesty expectation. It is at this point that the Great Awakening will show unconditional love, apply grace once given to all of us, develop a relationship with the immodest individual, and hope for an opportunity to teach them the standard of modesty. We recognize that we cannot scale a fish until we catch it first.

ALCOHOL
The Great Awakening International has decided not to enter into a contract with any venue that will have a wet bar open in our rented private event space(s). We understand that this could provide a temptation and a distraction from the purpose of our set-apart events.

Recognizing that the use and abuse of alcohol is an issue for some people within our reach, we strive to provide a safe sanctuary from the pain of addiction for those directly or indirectly affected by it. In addition, we admit that intoxication has the potential to impact clarity and understanding, thereby limiting our access to spiritual Truth.

We also recognize the exercise of freedom to choose to drink alcoholic beverages responsibly and in moderation. The Bible provides numerous examples of the responsible use of alcohol as well as condemnation for “drunkenness”. The Great Awakening International affirms the right of individuals in conscience to make responsible choices between abstention and moderate, non-problematic use. However, to avoid the potential of intoxication and the ensuing behavior that follows it, we will no longer hold events at venues where there is open access to alcoholic beverages.

Therefore, the Great Awakening International encourages and supports abstention at all of our Set-Apart activities. Moderate drinking in low-risk situations not provided by the venue in private rented spaces will not be opposed. Heavy drinking in any situation is vigorously discouraged by Great Awakening International.

MUSIC
While there is no “Thou shalt not …” with regards to secular music in the Bible, we know that some music degenerates into immoral behavior. Therefore, Set-apart music will be the preferred choice at all future Great Awakening International events. Great Awakening International will be monitoring all musical selections from guest bands and musicians moving forward. Henceforth, we are putting a moratorium on all outside bands/musical guests and will only be using awakened, Ruach-filled, and Torah observant musicians for future events.

  • Immersion the participants are to RISE from beneath the water with their own strength and guidance of the Ruach (Holy Spirit).
  • In baptism the facilitator brings the participants up out of the water.
  • Baptism is done mostly in pools our stabilized waters but can be done in living waters. Immersions (Hebraic Mikvah's) are usually done in living bodies of water.
  • Baptism usually is a one time event. Immersions can occur during multiple life transforming events. Such as coming of age, child birth, marriage, ritual cleansing and many more.
  • One is practiced by Christianity and the other is cultural related to Israel of scripture.

During Immersion: Here is the process for the actual physical immersion in water.
  • We will help you step into the lake.
  • Two of our Moreh immersers will stand to each side of you
  • If led by the Ruach, one or both Moreh Immersers will pray and prophecy over you
  • The Immersers will gently push down on the top of your head as a signifer to for you to go down into the water. (You will go down in your own strenght but rise in and by the Ruach.
  • You will dip yourself vertically (straightdown) into the water and come up vertically (straightway).
  • You are encouraged to rlelax, plug your nose.
  • Our immersers will hold you as you come up to ensure your safety.
  • While you are being immersed, the immerser will say something along these lines: “We say the following: "In obedience to the command of our Mashiach and based upon the profession of your faith, I now immerse you in the Name and in the authority of Yahusha/Yahshua." Buried with Mashiach [immersed in water], Raised to walk in new life [emerge from water].”
  • Feel free to express your joy, praise to Abba, look out at your friends, wave at your family, and cheer if you want. Just be yourself. This is a community celebration, so feel free to celebrate with your friends, Mishpacha, and dozens of believers on sight.

The Passover season is upon us for 2022.  Many of us are wondering when do we celebrate the Seder meal?  There are several calendars and all of them agree that the New Moon is on April 1, 2022 and Passover is 14 days later on the 14th day of April, 2022.  Most of the Gregorian calendars indicate that Passover is on the evening of the 14th day of April.  Most of them also indicate that there is a full moon the night of the 14h of April.  However, they fail to mention that a day in the Bible goes from evening to evening.  Consequently, Passover begins after evening on the 14th and ends on the 15th of April.  On every Passover, there is a full moon. Below is a detail explanation.

  1. In order to get the right dates, it is best to go back to the evening of the 1st  of April which is the “New Moon.” 
  2. If you count 14 evenings later, you arrive at the evening of the 14th day of April as the “Eve / beginning” of the day of Passover.
  3. The Hebrew day goes from evening to evening.
  4. Passover ends on the evening of the 15th of April which is Friday.
  5. Once the Passover ends at 6:00 on the 15th, the Feast of Unleavened Bread begins which is when we conduct the Seder meal according to Scripture.
  6. Leviticus 23:5 indicates that on the 14thday of Abib at twilight is YHVH’ s Passover. 
  7. The 14thof Abib begins this year after 6:00pm on April 14th.
  8. The end of the 14thday of Abib/Passover is on the 15th of April at 5:59 pm.
  9. Remember, the lamb had to be killed at evening or twilight on Passover.
  10. If Passover begins at 6:00pm on Friday the 14th of April, the killing of the lamb and the Crucifixion would have to occur between 12:00 and 3:00 on the 15th of April.
  11. The key is from evening to evening.  The Hebrew day begins after 6:00 pm going into the night for 12 hours.
  12. The day or “Boqer” begins at 6:00 am and is counted by hours. 9:00 is the 3rd hour12:00 is the 6th hour and 3:00 pm is the 9th hour.
  13. See John 11:9 Yahusha answered, “Are there not twelve hours in a day?..... (from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm)
  14. 27:45 Now from the sixth hour until the ninth hour there was darkness over all the land.  46. And about the ninth hour Yahusha cried out with a loud voice, saying Eli, Eli, lam sabachthani? That is “My God, My God, why have You forsaken me?
  15. In conclusion, Passover begins this year on the 14thof April in the evening and ends on April 15th at 5:59 pm.
  16. This is confirmed also by all calendars which indicate a full moon on the night of the 14thof April which is also the 14th of Abib.
  17. Passover is always on the 14thof Abib to begin at evening.
  18. The next day after 6:00 pm on April 15th begins the Feast of Unleavened Bread (15th of Abib) which is the time of the Seder meal.
Again, we look forward to seeing you and your family as we come together from all over the world to observe Passover in person or remotely using Zoom Video Conferencing, YouTube and Facebook on Friday April 15th, 2022.

The Passover Feast has some special dietary restrictions. Torah-observant Hebrews prohibits the eating of chametz during Passover as directed in the Torah. Chametz includes any food product or recipe made with the following grains:

Saturday, April 16, 2022, 6:00 pm Communal Seder Meal Passover Celebration:
Our Communal Seder Meal Passover Celebration will be led by Dr. Kenneth Howard. Click here for the Seder Program Guide for you to follow along with us via Zoom, Facebook or YouTube. The Seder Program will also be conveniently displayed on the screen during the event. The program is expected to last at least 70 minutes.

In preparation for the Seder celebration, it is customary to remove all leaven (chametz) from our homes (Exodus 12:15, 19). As a result, the removal of leaven signifies the attitude of penitence, the willingness to remove any corrupting influence in our lives and submit to YHVH in obedience. As the Hebrews prepared for the exodus by obeying the commands of YHVH through Moses, so in removing the chametz, we symbolize our willingness to obey YHVH in preparation for celebrating the deliverance he has already brought to His people. We have included a list of Types of Leavening Agents to get out of your home and a list of Foods You Can Eat during the 7 days of Passover.

In order to fully participate in the Seder Meal and Passover Celebration, below are a few things that you should have in your possession. On the table is a Seder Plate, representing traditional items that depict the Hebrew deliverance from slavery. These are required items:
  1. Seder plate:
  • Zaroah – Shank bone of the lamb represents the Passover Lamb
  • Matzah – Unleavened Bread (the Bread of Affliction)
  • Maror – Bitter Herbs (Horseradish)
  1. You will also need a kosher or unfermented wine.
  • Kosher Wine
  1. Other traditional items on the Seder table are:
  • Salt Water
  • Parsley
  • Candles
  1. Traditional Unleavened Meal to eat after the celebration
The elements on the Seder plate are traditionally used as representations to assist us with retelling the story of the exodus. They will incorporate the use of all our senses; sound, sight, taste, touch, and smell. These items will serve to remind us that we are to guard our gateways so that we do not fall back into bondage. We have included a brief Video on The Arrangement of the Seder Plate by Dr. Michael Laws.
