"STUDIES ON PASSOVER"


 
Isaac was the child of promise.  Tradition says he was evidently born on Passover.

In later Jewish tradition the sacrifice of Isaac was cited in appeals for the
... One source says that Isaac was born on the PASSOVER, and through his birth ...many barren women became fertile (Rosh Hashanah 11a).
One translation is "Isaac whom Sarah will give birth to at this season next year"
 
Rev. 12 says that a man-child who is to rule all nations is to be 'caught up'. Who gives birth to this man-child? "A woman clothed with the Sun" .........who "appeared in heaven"......see Rev. 12:1,2.
 
Paul says this in Galatians 4:28 "Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of the Promise. And who is to give birth to the children of the Promise? Galatians 4:26 says that Jerusalem which is "above" ie in heaven, is "the mother of us all".
 
So Isaac was the child of Promise.
 
We Christians are also like Isaac, the children of Promise.
 
Isaac was born supernaturally, that is 'from above', from heaven.
 
Sarah was the mother of Isaac.
 
Christians have as their mother "a woman clothed with the Sun"....."in heaven".....and is also called Jerusalem which is above.
 
Isaac was probably born on Passover.
 
If this Biblical analogy holds true then the "children of Promise" will also be born on Passover!
 
Passover is a Full Moon. But the 2nd Passover is 30 days later and is also on a Full Moon. The 2nd Passover was specifically for those who "were on a long journey" (Jesus) and those who had contact with a dead body (us Christians who are daily in contact with the "body of this death", as Paul wrote in Romans.
 
 
Note this section of scripture from Matthew 20
 
20:10
But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a penny.
20:11
And when they had received it, they murmured against the goodman of the house,
The 'goodman' of the house is no doubt Jesus.
 
Compare that use of "goodman" to this one in Proverbs 7:
 
7:19
For the goodman is not at home, he is gone a long journey:
7:20
He hath taken a bag of money with him, and will come home at the day appointed.
The Hebrew word for "appointed" is 'kece' and means Full Moon!
 
This seems to be telling us that the Goodman of the house, Jesus, who is on a ''long journey'' will return at the Full Moon!!
 
Where has Jesus, this nobleman been and for what reason?
 
 
The Scepter came through Judah, but the Birthright (blessings) are to come through Joseph.
 
Egypt was a historical type of the fulfillment of these Birthright blessings......just on a smaller scale than what is to happen to us upon whom the end of the ages have come!
 
Joseph went out over all Egypt just as those who are translated from mortality to immortality will go out over the entire earth to bring to humanity these Birthright Blessings!!
 
Joseph started this process from a very low estate. He was called from a "dungeon'' and when he was summoned he "changed his garments". What does that picture? The changing from mortal to immortal!!
 
When did this happen? When Joseph turned age 30 and at the time of the Trumpet which was sounded at "the new moon, (and) in the day appointed (Heb. 'Full moon'), on our solemn Feast day. Notice the immediate text next to the phrase 'on our solemn Feast day is "at the day appointed (Full Moon).
 
It is then that God "removed his (Joseph's) shoulder from the burden and his hands from from the pots".
 
For final proof that this Psalm 81 is speaking of the time of the Passover, consider this:
 
Read the entire Psalm and you will see that it is typically speaking of the time of Passover when Israel left Egypt!!
 
When Israel left Egypt a Trumpet was blown. Joseph is a type of the nation of Israel. They lived in the flesh pots of Egypt where they 'heard a language they understood not'.
 
Verse 7 of this Psalm says "thou called to me in trouble.......I answered thee....and proved thee by the waters of Meribah"! Then the word Selah.......think about this!
 
The waters of Meribah was an incident in the time of the Exodus from Egypt......initiated at the time of the Passover.
 
 
 
From JFB....on Proverbs 7:20 for the phrase ''the day appointed''.....
20. the day appointed--perhaps, literally, "a full moon," that is, a fortnight's time (compare Proverbs 7:19).

[Pss 81:3] Blow the trumpet at the new moon, at the full moon, on our feast day.
[Pss 81:4] For it is a statute for Israel, an ordinance of the God of Jacob.
[Pss 81:5] He made it a decree in Joseph, when he went out over the land of Egypt. I hear a voice I had not known:
 
NOTICE THESE VERSES INCLUDE A VOICE AND A TRUMPET!!!
 
[Gen 41:45] And Pharaoh called Joseph's name Zaphenath-paneah; and he gave him in marriage Asenath, the daughter of Potiphera priest of On. So Joseph went out over the land of Egypt.
[Gen 41:46] Joseph was thirty years old when he entered the service of Pharaoh king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh, and went through all the land of Egypt.
[Gen 41:47] During the seven plenteous years the earth brought forth abundantly..........
 
30 years old (above) plus 7+7 is 14.....notice also that Joseph's name was changed.........Rev. "I will give you a new name".........Zaphnath-paaneah = "treasury of the glorious rest" !!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
Chapter
 

1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 2 Sanctify unto me all the firstborn, whatsoever openeth the womb among the children of Israel, both of man and of beast: it is mine. 3 And Moses said unto the people, Remember this day, in which ye came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; F41 for by strength of hand the LORD brought you out from this place: there shall no leavened bread be eaten. 4 This day came ye out in the month Abib. 5 And it shall be when the LORD shall bring thee into the land of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee, a land flowing with milk and honey, that thou shalt keep this service in this month. 6 Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, and in the seventh day shall be a feast to the LORD. 7 Unleavened bread shall be eaten seven days; and there shall no leavened bread be seen with thee, neither shall there be leaven seen with thee in all thy quarters. 8 And thou shalt shew thy son in that day, saying, This is done because of that which the LORD did unto me when I came forth out of Egypt. 9 And it shall be for a sign unto thee upon thine hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that the LORD'S law may be in thy mouth: for with a strong hand hath the LORD brought thee out of Egypt. 10 Thou shalt therefore keep this ordinance in his season from year to year.   '
Note that his season in reference to the Passover/U.B. See p/c 127(on Marylyn Agee's site)...... ''the Season must be fulfilled''......is this the season of Passover and the 2nd Passover.
 
Note that the first Passover has been fulfilled..........but the 2nd Passover has not yet been fulfilled!

Jer 8:7
Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times; and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people know not the  judgment (Hebrew, Time Of judgment) of the LORD.
Also the trips around Jericho were 13 in total.........one each for 6 days and then 7 on the 7th day.......before the Trumpet was sounded!!!!
 
It looks like Joseph through whom the Birthright was given is the example of those who will inherit immortality (he had to change his garments!! and got a "new name") before or just as he assumed leadership over Egypt at age 30.
 
He ''went out over the land of Egypt" at age 30. See Gen. 41:46 and compare this to Ps 81 noting that the phrase in Ps. 81 means on the Full Moon.......and he heard a 'voice he had not heard before'...as in the voice to "come up hither" and also a Trumpet.........
 
And later after Joseph had died, as if to add emphasis to this all, he said that "his bones were to ''go up'' with the children of Israel as they left Egypt..........the dead in Christ shall rise first!!!!
 
So we have a voice of the trumpet at Passover and the hearing of a ''voice not heard before"!!!! If this is not Rapture terminology then nothing is!! It is the same as in I Thes. chpt.4.
 
Note in Genesis that Joseph was age 17 when he was feeding the flock, see Gen 37:2 and evidently it was at that time he was betrayed of his brother......and sold into Egypt. He was age 30 when he went out over all of Egypt. Then there were 7 good years, at which time he was age 37. That is 20 years from age 17 to the time the Famine hit.....which would be a type of the tribulation.
 
Since Joseph is a type of Christ, who also was ''thrown into a pit" by Judas, does the 20 years from the time of being sold into slavery until the time the tribulation starts........do these 20 years picture 2000 years from the crucifixion to the start of the tribulation?? Would all this mean the tribulation is 7 years long? And note it was after the 2nd year of the tribulation/famine that Joseph was revealed to his brothers.......including Judah.
 
From the time Joseph assumed leadership until he was revealed to his brothers was 9 years. The famine lasted another 5 years......total of 14 good and bad years.
 
But how does this fit into a timeline that applies to now??
 
M0RE to come on this later.
