Our Passover Lamb


2022 is a very unique year. This year the Hebrew lunar calendar as set forth by the Lord God (Exodus 12:1-2) and pagan Rome’s Gregorian calendar come into agreement for the day/date of His resurrection, April 17, 2022.

Easter is actually associated with a pagan holiday and this date was chosen by religious leaders of 325 AD as the “Official Resurrection Day” based on a solar calendar. According to those theologians, Easter is always on the first Sunday after the first full moon that follows the spring equinox.

Well, there’s NO correlation with this theological date setting and the Biblical dates of His death, burial and glorious resurrection.

There are exceptions to their date setting, when the full moon cycle following the spring equinox brings both the pagan influenced and Divine date into alignment. 2022 is one of those years.


The original theologians, known as Bishops in 325 AD, disregard Scripture, creating out of their collective minds a 3 day weekend. Catholicism and many Protestants conveniently do the same almost 1,700 years later. Must be easier to make sure His resurrection is on a Sunday annually.

But wait a minute.

You and I celebrate our birthday on that day/date no matter the day of the week, right? In the US, Independents Day is July 4th no matter the day of the week, right? Yet, religious leaders keep this most important spiritual date in History on a convenient 3-day weekend, always occurring on a Sunday.

“A little leaven spoils the whole loaf” is a trustworthy saying (Luke 12:1, 1st Corinthians 5:6-8,  Galatians 5:9).

Leaven is officially, ceremonially, religiously infused annually in His church.

They call their holiday, Easter. Ishtar, was known to the Babylonians. She was known to Jeremiah and those who know the Truth recognize her as “the queen of heaven.”

See Jeremiah 7:18, 44:17-19, 25. Her spiritual influences continue to celebrated or simply recognized centuries later, hidden in plain sight.


According to Scripture, Jesus is the Lamb of God. John the Baptist proclaimed,

 “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins if the world!" (John 1:29). 

But, no one but Jesus fully understood what John the Baptist said the day when Jesus was baptized by water and the Spirit.

Peter, a witness to the ministry and resurrected Messiah (Christ), describes how the Lamb of God redeemed us on the blessed Passover preparation day.

“You were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ [Messiah], like that of a lamb without blemish or spot” (1 Peter 1:18–20, NKJV).

To as many people as receive Him, confessing with their mouth and believe in their heart that He is their Messiah (John 1:12), their sin is taken away (John 1:29; 1st John 3:5), and the wrath of God (eternal judgment) is removed or passes over them as Believers (John 3:36; 1st John 2:2).

Jesus is our Passover Lamb. His blood was applied, fulfilling the Law.

All who receive Him as their personal Savior and Lord are made the children of God (John 1:12), given eternal life (John 3:16), by God’s mercy and grace through His Son, Jesus.

Therefore, believe in Jesus as the Lamb of God – accept Him as your Friend, Redeemer, Savior, and Lord. Then, you can say with the apostles,

…the blood of Jesus [God’s] Son cleanses [me] from all sin” (1st John 1:7).

We know that the sacrificial Lamb of God was slain on Nisan 14 at the time when lambs were sacrificed and their blood collected for Passover, which began after sundown (Exodus 11:12).

This year, Nisan 14 day is Thursday, April 15 ~ “The Day of the Cross.”


There is no “Good Friday” within Scripture.  That along with “Lent” are also traditions of men, having no foundation in Scripture. Just another pinch of leaven in His unleavened bread. Jesus warned us of such leaven (Luke 12:1).

We know from Scripture that our Lord was buried for 3 days and 3 nights like Jonah was in the belly of that great fish. Doing  the math, traditions of man leads Catholics and Protestants on a short cut, Friday to Sunday, which isn’t 3 days and 3 nights in the grave.

Their schedule is inaccurate and not legitimate based on Scripture. You think the Word made flesh is pleased with this tradition of men remembrance?

He was crucified on Nisan 14 and those faithful women found an empty tomb early on Sunday morning. Hallelujah!

Sunday, April 17, 2022 is Nisan 17 and the glorious day of His Resurrection!

Jesus Christ [The Messiah] is also our High Priest as we read in Hebrews 4:14-16.

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” (NKJV).

So now, where do you think the blood of the Lamb, taking away the sins of the world was placed on that blessed Passover night?

Scripture tells us.


Leviticus 17:11, “For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul” (NKJV).

The Lamb’s blood flowed down that Roman cross for 3 long hours into the rock of Golgotha. Down into a cave/grotto where the Ark of the Covenant was laid in hiding – placed exactly where it would be required to receive His precious blood, fulfilling the Law, redeeming God’s people, all Believers (Hebrews and Gentiles), establishing a New Covenant and removing the old covenant in His blood as we read in the New Testament (Romans 3:25; Colossians 1:14, 19-21; 1 Peter 1:1-3; 1st John 1:6-8).


The requirement of God’s Law was met by the Word made flesh, our Messiah (John 1:1-18). The blood of the Lamb was applied that blessed Passover, in a holy place designated by God under that old rugged cross with the extraordinary, remarkable assistance of Jeremiah and Temple priests so many years before, onto the Mercy Seat of the Ark of the Covenant.

Blessings to you on this Passover in Jesus’ name.

“Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh, and since we have a Great Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled clean [by the Blood of the Lamb] from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water [the Word].

Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near” (Hebrews 10:19-25, NASB).
