Newsletter: Pesach 2017

Dear friends,

Passover is an incredible feast which allows us to re-experience our own deliverance. First we remove all chametz (leaven, yeast) from our homes a thorough cleaning. Next to a physical task this is also a spiritual experience, because of the symbolism of yeast and sourdough representing our old nature and misdeeds.

During the Seider meal we use four cups of wine (grape juice if necessary). And here’s a beautiful picture, which has everything to do with the process of our personal deliverance and the liberation of Israel as people G-d.

The four cups that are consumed during the Seider meal are an inspiration to grow spiritually. In Exodus 6:6 we recognize the four cups in the actions of the Lord toward is people: “I am the Lord your G-d and I will lead you away from the oppression of the Egyptians’ slavery”, in Hebrew: hotseti, the first cup. Consider also your own slavery regarding wrongdoing. “I will take away your circumstances of this cruel slavery, in Hebrew: hitsalti, the second cup. Consider your changed circumstances when you started to trust the Eternal One in your own life.

Redemption will be a miracle, from darkness to light, in the Hebrew: ga’alti, the third cup. Look back at the joy when you got to know the Lord and knew that He took away your sins through the Passover Lamb, Yeshua. Finally, “I will take you as my people”, and prepare for the Kingdom, in Hebrew: lakachti, the fourth cup. We may know that we find eternal shelter in the G-d of Israel!

Passover celebration is solemn and also very happy, because of the great deliverance, which only the Eternal One is able to perform. I wish you a very good Pesach!
