BE Restored

Deuteronomy 6:6-7 TLV “These words, which I am commanding you today, are to be on your heart. You are to teach them diligently to your children, and speak of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down and when you rise up.”

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 TLV “Therefore, since we have a great Kohen Gadol who has passed through the heavens, Yeshua Ben-Elohim, let us hold firmly to our confessed allegiance. 15 For we do not have a kohen gadol who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all the same ways—yet without sin. 16 Therefore let us draw near to the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace for 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.
