We have just come out of a period of Passover, a time when we remember the death and resurrection of Jesus the Christ, the precious lamb of God and our Passover lamb.
Just as is Exodus 12 when the children of Israel were instructed to place the blood of the Passover lamb on the door and the mantles of their houses, so that the death angel would Passover that house and the people of that house were protected, so to as we accept the work of the cross and apply the blood of Jesus to our hearts, we too are protected from the death our sins required:
Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Just as the Children of Israel were required for the next 7 days to eat bread without yeast or leaven and also remove any leaven from their homes, as leaven was symbolic of corruption, so God used it to signify Israel being removed from the corruption of Egypt. So to, when Jesus was put into the tomb, his physical body did for see corruption, as he is our unleavened bread and has taken us out of the corruption of this world:
Joh 6:47 Truly, truly, I say to you, He who believes on Me has everlasting life.
Joh 6:48 I am the Bread of life.
Joh 6:49 Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and died.
Joh 6:50 This is the Bread which comes down from Heaven, so that a man may eat of it and not die.
Joh 6:51 I am the Living Bread which came down from Heaven. If anyone eats of this Bread, he shall live forever. And truly the bread that I will give is My flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
As with everything, Satan has tried to hijack Passover with his own perversion of it, but we thank God for his Holy Spirit which leads us into all truth.
I want to share with you an analogy which God gave me many years ago about the state of our lives and why we need a Passover Lamb:
It is called “ The Messy House”
The Messy house
(This represents the world).
A people live in a house and this house is full of mess. There are pets everywhere, rubbish on the floor, un washed dishes everywhere, old food everywhere etc.
The people Who live in this house, most of them are blatantly happy In the mess, so much so that they no longer see it as mess but as 'New Vou Style'.
Others in the house See the Mess and once thought it was ok, but now are Changing their attitude by trying to live Cleaner. So they start Covering the seats before Sitting down, putting Clean food on the dirty Plates Instead of eating the dirty food and also putting on Clean clothes, even though they never have a Shower or a bath.
The people have lived this way for so long that it is beginning to effect the physical Structure of the building.
Finally the owners of the building call the environmental health people in. When they arrive they cannot believe what they are seeing. They speak to all the people of the house and explain the danger of living this way. Some listen, but most do not, still trying to Justify their lifestyle by Saying "as far as l am Concerned I am not hurting anyone Just as long as i stay in my own room, it is up to me how i live my life, so I don't need any environmental health person telling me how to live my life. Besides my life style is New Vou".
The Ones who listen are cleaned up fully showered, all of their clothes and things completely washed clean. Then they are taught how to continue to live this way. They are then moved to a new address and any of their old Stuff, which they did not need is left in the old house.
The people who stay in the old house eventually all die from Ecolli and other hygiene related diseases.
The house is in such a state that after the last dead body is removed, the whole house has to be knocked down and a new one erected In its place.
This is a picture of this world and what God did for man and What he is going to do to the earth.
This is why we need a Passover Lamb.
As John said when he saw Jesus:
Joh 1:29 The next day John sees Jesus coming to him and says, Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!
Many people are in jobs and careers for years, working for the same type of income, which is called Linear Income. Trading their time for someone else’s money, assuming that the income will always be there.
They think that way because from the earliest years in school, that is how they have been trained to think. This is why when you share the Reliv business opportunity with people many people do not want to listen, or they are so sold into linear income that they dismiss it as something not serious and only desperate people do.
In a way they are right, because the people who are successful in building a Reliv business or any business, are people who are desperate about changing their situations and failure is not an option.
You see, first of all a person needs to understand that they are in a messy financial house, then they have to be willing to be cleaned up. After that, they need to be prepared to move address, never to return to the old address and leave all of the old rubbish that was hindering them financially in the old house.
The Reliv opportunity allows a person to do just that and at the same time encouraging them to reach down and help others out of that same “Messy House”
