We have just come through a period known as Passover, it has falsely been renamed Easter and the majority of the Christian world today still use that name. However if we are going to be correct, which I think we should be, then we should have an understanding of what we are doing.
The name Easter comes from a Pagan festive to celebrate the fertility goddess Eastra she was also known by other names in other cultures:
Aphrodite, named Cytherea (Lady of Cythera) and Cypris (Lady of Cyprus) after the two
places which claimed her birth; 8
Ashtoreth from ancient Israel;
Astarte from ancient Greece;
Demeter from Mycenae;
Hathor from ancient Egypt;
Ishtar from Assyria;
Kali, from India; and
Ostara a Norse Goddess of fertility.
This is why a lot of the symbols that are used in the traditional Easter celebrations are
fertility symbols like, the egg and the bunny and activities like hunting for the egg all come
from the pagan celebration.
However as Christians this time of year hold much significance for us because we remember
the time when our creator proved how much he loved us by paying the ultimate price by
sacrificing his life and being our Passover Over lamb.
This is why when John the Baptist saw Jesus coming to get baptize he said these words:
Joh 1:29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the
Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
The Jews remember Passover as a time when God delivered them from Egypt
And it marks the beginning of their religious yearly calendar. However to this day
They still do not understand that Jesus met every requirement of the Passover lamb
not just to deliver Israel from the bondage of Slavery, but the whole world from the
bondage of sin!
So just as the blood on the doorpost and lentils on that Passover night protected the people
in the house from the death angel and allowed the angel to pass over that house, in the same
way when a person accepts the Lord Jesus Christ, his spread blood gets placed on the
door post and lentils of a persons heart so that at the time of judgment, when the verdict of guilty is passed on us for the sin we committed during our lives and the death penalty is required
Because the Bible says:
Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin is death;
his blood allows that death sentence to PASSOVER us. This is why the rest of that verse in
Romans 6 says this
“but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
Jesus restored us back to true relationship with The father, which man lost when he fell in the
Garden of Eden, so that now our hearts can be renewed and we can live according to his direction and not according to our lust, we can be Born Again.
King David understood the state of his heart after he had Bathsheba’s husband killed and he cried to God and said:
Psa 51:10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
The Lord spoke through the Prophet Jeremiah these words about the heart:
Jer 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
Jer 17:10 I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man
This is why we need to be restored by our PASSOVER lamb
So I DO NOT celebrate Easter, I celebrate PASSOVER and I live everyday experiencing the benefits from my Passover lamb.
Parallel Business Principals
People are struggling in major areas of life, which is their health and their finances and they
need help to restore these 2 areas.
People are being held in bondage to these area’s and need to be emancipated!
Many people have lost hope that things will ever change and many people have got themselves into a comfort zone and make excuses for themselves why things do not need to change.
However there are people that are looking for deliverance in these areas, they are looking for a
way out and these are the people we are looking. These are the people that are going to follow
instructions, because they are so desperate for change they understand that their way just
is not working. These are the people that will allow you to lead them out of where they are
and into their potential future.
You see the people in Egypt, whether they were Egyptian or Israeli, IF they did not follow the precise instructions of Moses, then their first born’s perished.
Similarly if people will not follow your instructions, then their potential in Reliv WILL likewise perish
