BE Restored

Deuteronomy 6:6-7 NKJV “Therefore say to the children of Israel: ‘I am the Lord; I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, I will rescue you from their bondage, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments. 7 I will take you as My people, and I will be your God. Then you shall know that I am the Lord your God who brings you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.”

Passover is a time to be delivered and to be restored. Leaving Egypt was the first step for God’s people, just as salvation is the first step for the believer. After salvation, we must renew our minds and see ourselves restored to fellowship with God. The purpose of salvation is not only to be forgiven of our sins but to have renewed fellowship with God.

Hebrews 4:14-16 NKJV “Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 15 For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”

Jesus came and suffered a punishment He did not deserve, He endured questioning that was out of line, and He died a death meant for us. Jesus laid His life down so that we could once again have access to God through Him. Since then, the enemy has used man’s religious systems to separate men from God. In the catholic church, you must go through a priest; if you’re charismatic, you run after a prophet to get a word from God, and if you’re an average Christian, the enemy convinces you to run from God instead of run to Him. I have no doubt many churches have meant well with their doctrines, but the fact remains that there is one mediator between God and man, the Man, Christ Jesus (1 Timothy 2:5).

Yes, we can go to others and ask for prayer, but we don’t need them to go to God for us. Christ Jesus giving His life caused the vail in the Temple to be torn from top to bottom, granting every believer access to the very presence of God. 

So during this time of remembering Jesus’s sacrifice, come boldly into His courts with praise, and put your feet under the Passover table. Enjoy your salvation, deliverance, and sanctification. Look forward to His coming Kingdom when we enter into eternal joy and rest.
