The following are some comments and notes in relation to a topic (Pesach [heb]; [Passover] ) that is extremely important for our people, but at the same time quite controversial as to its celebration and, how and by whom it is to be celebrated.

The first of the Feasts (Moedim [heb]) that Yahweh commands His people to celebrate at the beginning of the year is Pesach, that is, the Feast of “The Liberation”.

Strong’s defines “Pesach” as:
H6453Pesakh from H6452; a pretermission, i.e. exemption; used only technically of the Jewish Passover (the festival or the victim) – Passover (offering).
Pretermission according to The Oxford Dictionary:
To omit, to acquit.

According to the order given by יהוה to the people through Mosheh (Moses), this Feast had to be celebrated by the people on the fourteenth day at sunset on the first month of the year, that is to say in the month of Aviv.

Shemoth (Exodus) 12:1-6   [approximately 1491 BCE]
  1 And יהוה spoke to Mosheh and to Aharon in the land of Mitsrayim, saying,
  2 “This month is the beginning of months for you; it is the first month of the year for you.
  3 “Speak to all the congregation of Yisra’ĕl, saying, ‘On the tenth day of this month each one of them is to take for himself a lamb, according to the house of his father, a lamb for a household.
  4 ‘And if the household is too small for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next to his house take it according to the number of the beings, according to each man’s need you make your count for the lamb.

This is not a “Jewish Feast” but a perpetual command for ALL Yisrael. Something crucial and very important in relation to the celebration of the Feast in that time and to be able to understand how to celebrate it today is the following:

5 ‘Let the lamb be a perfect one, a year old male. Take it from the sheep or from the goats.
6 ‘And you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month. Then all the assembly of the congregation of Yisra’ĕl shall kill it between the evenings.

There were strict specifications as to how and when the lamb had to be killed. It is NOT just going to the supermarket and buying lamb meat and eating it to fulfil the command, not even if we buy it whole and we put it on a grill and slowly roast it, NO!

The ordinance of the Torah continues to say:

Shemoth (Exodus) 12:7-14
7 ‘And they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel of the houses where they eat it.
8 ‘And they shall eat the flesh on that night, roasted in fire – with unleavened bread and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.

It had to be eaten completely roasted by fire and with unleavened bread and with bitter herbs. The WHOLE lamb had to be roasted.

9 ‘Do not eat it raw, nor boiled at all with water, but roasted in fire, its head with its legs and its inward parts.
10 ‘And do not leave of it until morning, and what remains of it until morning you are to burn with fire.

The Hebrew word for “roasted” is:
H6748 צָלִי tsali
Passive participle H6740; roasted:- to roast

From the root:
H6740 צָלָה tsalah
Primary root; to toast:- roasted, roast

Let’s keep this word tsali in mind, as it will help us understand many things later on.
And it had to be eaten with this inner attitude:

11 ‘And this is how you eat it: your loins girded, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand. And you shall eat it in haste. It is the Passover of יהוה.

It says in the Hebrew that they had to eat the lamb:
H2649  חִפָּזוֹן chippazon
From H2648; trepidation- hurried flight

They had to eat it “in haste”, because after eating they had to “flee hurriedly” from Mitsrayim (Egypt) and from Pharaoh.
We see then that: “The Lamb is Pesach!

And the purpose of Pesach was “to kill all the first-born of Mitsrayim” in the places where the blood of the Lamb was not found on the lintels and doorposts of their houses:

11 ‘And this is how you eat it: your loins girded, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand. And you shall eat it in haste. It is the Passover of יהוה.
 12 ‘And I shall pass through the land of Mitsrayim on that night, and shall smite all the first-born in the land of Mitsrayim, both man and beast. And on all the mighty ones of Mitsrayim, I shall execute judgment. I am יהוה.
 13 ‘And the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I shall pass over you, and let the plague not come on you to destroy you when I smite the land of Mitsrayim.

Next Mosheh (Moses) tells us that this is an “Eternal” Feast:

14  ‘And this day shall become to you a remembrance. And you shall observe it as a festival to יהוה throughout you generations – observe it as a festival, an everlasting law.
(everlasting (olam)= eternal

We could continue analysing the Feast but let’s stop here and jump to verses 47-49

47  “All the congregation of Yisra’ĕl are to perform it.
48  “And when a stranger sojourns with you and shall perform the Passover to יהוה, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and perform it, and he shall be as a native of the land. But let no uncircumcised eat of it.
49  “There is one Torah for the native-born and for the stranger who sojourns among you.”

The commandment is clear:
Both Hebrews and foreigners had to have “Milah”, that is, they had to be circumcised to take the Pesach. We will expand on this later on.
Now let us look at other texts that will open our understanding about something very important to understand:

Debarim (Deuteronomy) 16:1-7
  1 “Guard the month of Aḇiḇ, and perform the Passover to יהוה your Elohim, for in the month of Aḇiḇ יהוה your Elohim brought you out of Mitsrayim by night.
  2  “And you shall slaughter the Passover to יהוה your Elohim, from the flock and the herd, in the place where יהוה chooses to put His Name.
  3 “Eat no leavened bread with it. For seven days you eat unleavened bread with it, bread of affliction, because you came out of the land of Mitsrayim in haste – so that you remember the day in which you came out of the land of Mitsrayim, all the days of your life.
  4 “And no leaven should be seen with you in all your border for seven days, neither should any of the meat which you slaughter in the evening on the first day stay all night until morning.
  5 “You are not allowed to slaughter the Passover within any of your gates which יהוה your Elohim gives you,
  6 but at the place where יהוה your Elohim chooses to make His Name dwell, there you slaughter the Passover in the evening, at the going down of the sun, at the appointed time you came out of Mitsrayim.
  7 “And you shall roast and eat it in the place which יהוה your Elohim chooses, and in the morning you shall turn and go to your tents.

These texts from Debarim (Deuteronomy) seem to totally contradict Shemot (Exodus) 12. Why? In Shemot 12 we are given the commandment that the “Pesach” had to be a “lamb” taken from the flock,  a year old, without blemish, etc…
Here Debarim tells us that the “Pesach” had to be taken from the flock (lamb) and the herd (cows) (verse 2).
Here the word “herd” in Hebrew is “bacar” which means: bull, calf, cow…
Another apparent contradiction:
In verse 7 the word used for cooking is
H1310 בָּשַׁל bashal
A primitive root; properly to boil up, to be done in cooking, figuratively to ripen…

That is to say boiled, cooked

Doesn’t it sound contradictory if in Shemot (Exodus) we are clearly told not to eat it “boiled” but rather roasted totally? An understanding that we must have stemmed from here and we would not be able to fully capture it if we don’t look into Jewish culture.
In Jewish culture there are two “Pesach offerings”:
1) Korban Haggadah or cooked offerings (Festive Offering)
2) Korban Pesach or Roasted Offering of Pesach)

1)Korban Haggadah or cooked offerings (Festive Offering):
Some perform this offering based on two commandments of the Eternal:

Shemoth (Exodus) 23:15-16
15  “Guard the Festival of Unleavened Bread. Seven days you eat unleavened bread, as I commanded you, at the time appointed in the month of Aḇiḇ – for in it you came out of Mitsrayim – and do not appear before Me empty-handed;
16  and the Festival of the Harvest, the first-fruits of your labours which you have sown in the field; and the Festival of the Ingathering at the outgoing of the year, when you have gathered in the fruit of your labours from the field.

The term “Haggadah” could have, according to researchers, two meanings:
-An additional animal offered on the 14th of Aviv (Nissan) which was boiled.
-A Shalom (peace) offering  on the 15th of Aviv (Nissan)

2) The Korban Pesach or roasted offering of Pesach

One (Korban Haggadah) was offered before the other (Korban Pesach) as a preparation for the second offering. The first offering could be a lamb or bull or another animal of the herd. The second offering was strictly chosen from the flock (lamb).

A possible way of interpreting this, but has been rejected by Jewish Tradition, is that the order to eat roasted lamb was only for those who were in Mitsraim and that the offering when they already had the Temple would be cooked or boiled and not roasted…
A text that casts doubts on this interpretation is:

Dibre haYamin Bet  (2nd Chronicles) 35:13
13  So they roasted the Passover offerings with fire according to the right-ruling, and they boiled the set-apart offerings in pots, and in cauldrons, and in bowls, and brought them speedily to all the lay people.

All the versions which I have revised say here “roasted the lamb (Pesach)”, Rotherham and Hebrew Roots Bible (HRB) translate it as “cooked”, but the Hebrew text uses:
H1310 בָּשַׁל bashal
A primitive root; properly to boil up, to be done in cooking, figuratively to ripen…

That is to say boiled, cooked
Before going on to important aspects in the Brit haDasha (Renewed Covenant) let us look at the following:

Bemidmar (Numbers) 9:1-12
1 And יהוה spoke to Mosheh in the Wilderness of Sinai, in the first month of the second year after they had come out of the land of Mitsrayim, saying,
2“Now, let the children of Yisra’ĕl perform the Passover at its appointed time.
3 “On the fourteenth day of this month, between the evenings, perform it at its appointed time. According to all its laws and right-rulings you perform it.”
4 And Mosheh spoke to the children of Yisra’ĕl to perform the Passover.
5 So they performed the Passover on the fourteenth day of the first month, between the evenings, in the Wilderness of Sinai. According to all that יהוה commanded Mosheh, so the children of Yisra’ĕl did.
6 But there were men who were defiled for a being of a man (coming in contact with a dead body), so that they were not able to perform the Passover on that day. So they came before Mosheh and Aharon that day,
7 and those men said to him, “We are defiled for the being of a man. Why are we withheld from bringing near the offering of יהוה at its appointed time among the children of Yisra’ĕl?”
8 And Mosheh said to them, “Wait, let me hear what יהוה commands concerning you.”
9 And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying,
10  “Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, saying, ‘When any male of you or your generations is unclean¹ for a being, or is far away on a journey, he shall still perform the Passover of יהוה.
(Footnote: ¹Defilement can be imparted from one to another)
11 ‘On the fourteenth day of the second month, between the evenings, they perform it –with unleavened bread and bitter herbs they eat it.
12 ‘They do not leave of it until morning, and they do not break a bone of it. According to all the laws of the Passover they perform it.

If an Israelite was in the state of impurity (defiled) [‘tame’ in Hebrew] at the time of Pesach, the order was for him not to partake of it with the people, rather he should eat it a month later and with the same rules for Pesach.
He didn’t stop celebrating Pesach but did it alone and one month apart from the rest under the same commands given for the Feast.
The vision that Kepha (Peter) had comes to mind:

Ma’asei (Acts) 10:11-15
11 and he saw the heaven opened and a certain vessel like a great sheet bound at the four corners, descending to him and let down to the earth,
12 in which were all kinds of four-footed beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping creatures, and the birds of the heaven.
13 And a voice came to him, “Rise up, Kĕpha, slay and eat.”
14 But Kĕpha said, “Not at all, Master! Because I have never eaten whatever is common or unclean.”
15 And a voice came to him again the second time, “What Elohim has cleansed you do not consider common.”

All of us that walk this path understand that what is being talked about here is not literally animals as Christians say it does, rather it refers to people as the apostle Kepha (Peter) himself explains a few verses later:

Ma’asei (Acts) 10:27-28
27 And talking with him, he went in and found many who had come together.
28 And he said to them, “You know that a Yehuḏite man is not allowed to associate with, or go to one of another race. But Elohim has shown me that I should not call any man common or unclean¹
(Footnote: ¹See v. 35) 

Ma'asei (Acts) 15: 1, 5
1 And certain men came down from Yehuḏah and were teaching the brothers, “Unless you are circumcised, according to the practice of Mosheh, you are unable to be saved.”

5 And some of the believers who belonged to the sect of the Pharisees, rose up, saying, “It is necessary to circumcise them, and to command them to keep the Torah of Mosheh.”

The Pharisees who were believers in Yahshua wanted to force the gentiles who were beginning to believe and were being saved by their faith (emunah) in Yahshua, to undergo the Brit Milah (circumcision) to be able to be saved.
This caused the apostles to meet and make a sort of council where after debating they reached the following conclusion:

Ma’asei (Acts) 15:19-21
 19 “Therefore I judge that we should not trouble those from among the gentiles who are turning to Elohim,
 20 but that we write to them to abstain from the defilements of idols, and from whoring, and from what is strangled, and from blood¹.
  (Footnote: ¹See v.29).
 21 “For from ancient generations Mosheh has, in every city, those proclaiming him – being read in the congregations every Sabbath.”

The apostles reached the conclusion that the gentiles who were entering salvation should not be bothered as to being circumcised or not, but rather that they are left alone and be asked to abstain from the four things described in the text above.

And they say that they have the words of Moshe every Sabbath and his words (Torah) are read there every day of rest.
What are they saying in context?
“The gentiles will go to the Synagogue on the Sabbath (by the way it doesn’t say Christian Church) and congregate there and listen to learn the Torah of Mosheh and in time they would understand and believe that they should be circumcised to belong to the Covenant of Abraham, but let us not force them to be circumcised for their salvation…”

This is very clear but it brings forth another question:
Were the apostles knowingly condemning the uncircumcised gentiles to not celebrate the Seder Pesach because they didn’t have the Brit Milah?
Or did they know something that we, the 21st-century know-it-alls, both Jews and Messianic don’t know and despite that dare to give our opinion, condemning and fighting among ourselves?
Before continuing, I would like to go back and see some verses:

Qorintiyim Alef (1 Corinthians) 7:18
 18 Was anyone called while circumcised? Let him not become uncircumcised. Was anyone called while uncircumcised? Let him not be circumcised.

 The key in this verse is: Was anyone called while circumcised?
What is Shaul referring to when he says ‘called?
In light of what we have seen before it means: “When he believed in Yahshua for salvation”.
By the way, it is not saying that the gentile believers in Yahshua remain “forever”  in that condition of “Akrobustia [gr]” (the group that Shaul was talking to were “Akrobustians” or people who had ancestors who had the circumcision but had ended up denying it, “throwing the foreskin to the ground”, which is what “Akrobustia [gr]” means, as opposed to the “Aperitome [gr]” who were also uncircumcised but never had ancestors who were circumcised, that is to say strictly “foreigners”
This text does not say that the uncircumcised that believes in Yahshua should stay that way forever but rather that “the time and the moment will come” when his heart is moved to carry out the Brit Milah, but I insist, “in time”, to avoid trampling on the blood of the Covenant should  he turn his back on his faith and give rise to a greater condemnation.
No, my Israelite brother, let us not be so coarsely strict with topics that in great part are unknown to us.
To these same Corinthians he says:

Qorintiyim Alef (1st Corinthians) 5:6-8
 6 Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the entire lump?
 7 Therefore cleanse out the old leaven, so that you are a new lump, as you are unleavened. For also Messiah our Passover was offered for us.
 8 So then let us observe the festival, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of evil and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

Listen brethren:
Let us celebrate the Seder!
Are the uncircumcised being forbidden to celebrate Pesach? NO!
Are they being accused and condemned?
Why not?
Because they are not defiled, they are no longer in the “tame” condition precisely because:
The Blood of the Lamb has purified and sanctified them!

Ib’rim (Hebrews) 9:22
 22 And, according to the Torah, almost all is cleansed with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.

According to the Torah, almost everything is purified with blood; in reality, there is no forgiveness of sins without shedding blood.
This verse is very clear: Purification is obtained by blood, not by circumcision. Believers in Yahshua are purified by the shedding of His blood.
By what are our brothers the Yahudim (Jews) purified if there is no Temple today, nor are there animal sacrifices, nor do they believe in Yahshua as the Mashiach?
For 2000 years there has been no forgiveness of sin in them.

Going back to the topic:
That is why Shaul exhorts us not to eat the Seder Pesach with “old leaven”. Do you know what that is?

Luqas (Luke) 12:1
 1 Meanwhile, when an innumerable crowd of people had gathered together so that they trampled one another, He began to say to His taught ones, first, “Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.
Mattityahu (Matthew) 16:6
 6  And יהושע said to them, “Mind! And beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the Sadducees.”

The “old chametz (leaven)” is the hypocrisy of the Pharisees, of the Judaizers, of those who believe themselves to be more just than the rest, of the ones who believe that just because they have the Brit Milah in their flesh that they are superior to those who don’t have it and forget what Shaul taught:

Romiyim (Romans) 2:28-29
 28 For he is not a Yehuḏite who is so outwardly, neither is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh.
 29  But a Yehuḏite is he who is so inwardly, and circumcision is that of the heart¹,  in Spirit, not literally, whose praise is not from men but from Elohim.
 (¹Footnote: 11 Cor. 7:19, Ex. 19:5, Dt. 10:12-16, Dt. 30:6-8)

The old leaven is the hypocrisy of the know-it-alls who believe that they are more kadoshim (holy) than others because they have circumcision and the goyim (gentile) believers don’t and consider them “defiled” and unworthy to enjoy the blessings of the Eternal.

The old leaven is the life that the Pharisees lead, wanting to impose burdens on others that they themselves could not carry. It is interesting that chapter 5 of 1st Corinthians where Shaul talks of celebrating Pesach without the old leaven also talks of the hypocrisy that the Corinthians had when they tolerated a certain individual that had fornicated with the wife of his father. In other words, Shaul is saying, take the Pesach but don’t do it with hypocrisy in your hearts rather do it with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
I would like to touch on another point:
Did Yahshua celebrate the Seder Pesach?

Yohanan (John) 18:28
 28 Then they led יהושע {Yahshua}rom Qayapha to the palace, and it was early. And they themselves did not go into the palace, lest they should be defiled, but that they might eat the Passover.

I ask:
Had they eaten the Seder Pesach yet?
NOT according to the text.
Another text:

Yohanan (John) 19:13-14
 13 Therefore, when Pilate heard these words, he brought יהושע {Yahsua}out and sat down in the judgment seat in a place that is called Pavement, but in Heḇrew, Gabbatha.
 14 And it was the Preparation Day of the Passover week, and about the sixth hour. And he said to the Yehuḏim, “See your Sovereign!”

Why does Scripture say that it was the Preparation Day of Pesach if Yahshua supposedly and according to tradition had already eaten the Pesach, the so called Last Supper with His disciples?
Let’s look at more verses:

Mattityahu (Matthew) 26:26-31
 26 And as they were eating, יהושע  {Yahshua}took bread, and having blessed, broke and gave it to the taught ones and said, “Take, eat, this is My body.”
 27 And taking the cup, and giving thanks, He gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you.
 28 “For this is My blood, that of the renewed covenant, which is shed for many for the forgiveness of sins.
 29 “But I say to you, I shall certainly not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on till that day when I drink it anew with you in the reign of My Father.”
 30  And having sung a song, they went out to the Mount of Olives.
 31  Then יהושע said to them, “All of you shall stumble in Me this night, for it has been written, ‘I shall strike the Shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered.’

In this version as in the Shem Tov Version [the book of Mattityahu (Matthew) was originally written in Hebrew] the bread is referring to “lechem” (common leavened bread) and NOT “matzah”(unleavened bread).
Here the Hebrew text does NOT say that they had eaten the Pesach Lamb either…Let’s see more texts that help us understand even more:

Qorintiyim Álef (1ªCorintios) 11:23-32
 23  For I received from the Master that which I also delivered to you: that the Master יהושע in the night in which He was delivered up took bread,
 24  and having given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat, this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”
 25  In the same way also the cup, after supper, saying, “This cup is the renewed covenant in My blood. As often as you drink it, do this in remembrance of Me.”
 26  For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the death of the Master until He comes.
 27  So that whoever should eat this bread or drink this cup of the Master unworthily shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Master.
 28  But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread and drink of that cup.
 29  For the one who is eating and drinking unworthily, eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the body of the Master.
 30  Because of this many are weak and sick among you, and many sleep.
 31  For if we were to examine ourselves, we would not be judged.
 32  But when we are judged, we are disciplined by the Master, that we should not be condemned with the world.

Notice this point:

1.-The night in which he was betrayed, He ate bread. In other words, He did not eat the Pesach!
Why do I say this?
Because it was a night before they nailed Him to the tree, that is to say, the night of the 14th of Aviv, remember that the biblical day starts and ends at sunset of the next day and according to the Torah the lamb had to be killed between the two evenings, in other words between the 14th and 15th of Aviv.
Moreover, Yahshua broke “lechem”, or leavened bread and the commandment of the Torah was to eat “matzah” or unleavened bread…
So, what did the apostles eat with the Master?
The Korban Haggadah that according to Deuteronomy 16 could be lamb or a bull, an ox [Korban Haggadah is a traditional Jewish meal as an offering of Shalom (peace) which is also called Pesach]
One more thing …

According to the Torah, all believers in Yahweh had to go up to Yerushalayim three times a year to celebrate three Feasts: Pesach, Shavuot and Sukkot, wherever they were they had to ascend to the Holy City.

When Shaul is teaching the Corinthians, he is teaching in Corinth, and not in Yerushalayim, therefore, they would be violating the Torah by celebrating the Pesach in Corinth.
Then, my question is: What were they celebrating?
1) The Korban Pesach
2) The Korban Haggadah (Peace Offering, as a festivity)

Remember that the Korban Haggadah was celebrated (before the Korban Pesach) with animals from the ‘herd’ which could be a cow, an ox, and was eaten ‘boiled’ as opposed to the Korban Pesach where a “roasted lamb” was eaten.


Take into account that both were part of the Pesach and it could be that the Greek and Latin translators failed to see this large but subtle difference which caused so much confusion.
I want to draw the following conclusions:
1) The Feast of Pesach is eternal and it is given to the whole people of Yisra’ĕl   (Jews and Gentiles/Yisra’ĕl).
2) It was celebrated by eating ‘roasted Lamb’, never boiled.
3) It was accompanied by Matza or unleavened bread and bitter herbs.
4) It could be eaten by both Israelites and foreigners the basic requirement is that they were circumcised.
5) If an Israelite was in the state of ‘tame‘ (filthiness/impurity) when the day of Pesach came he/she could celebrate it a month later following the same rules.
6) There were two offerings for Pesach:
– the Korban Haggadah which could be celebrated with a lamb but also with a cow or ox and it could be boiled.
– the Korban Pesach which was celebrated only with a lamb and only roasted, never boiled.
7) In the Brit Hadasha (New Covenant) we see uncircumcised gentiles entering the salvation offered by Yahshua and Paul tells them to “celebrate” the Pesach not with the old leaven of evil and wickedness but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth ( here he is no longer talking of literal leaven nor of literal unleavened bread but of something spiritual: evil and wickedness, and sincerity and truth).
8) The literal Pesach was a feast to commemorate the “liberty” that our people experienced when they came out Mitsrayim (Egypt).
9) Pharaoh symbolizes the instincts of man which enslave Mitsrayim when they are not properly used.
10) Mitsrayim comes from a root that means “limitations”.
11) The Eternal arranged to free His people from the limitations that their own instincts brought them and for this he makes available a “lamb” that had to be eaten in a state of purity in the flesh (circumcised) however, despite being physically liberated from Egypt they failed to be freed spiritually and slowly died in the desert and were not able to enter the ‘rest’ that was prepared by the Eternal for them.
12) The Eternal sends His Lamb, Yahshua and converts Him into the Pesach Lamb, now a spiritual Lamb who will completely liberate those who deposit their faith in Him, freeing them from the slavery of their own instincts bringing with this “spiritual freedom”.
13) A sign of one who has eaten the Pesach Lamb, Yahshua, is that he/she has attained freedom from the slavery of sin and is now free to choose whether to live a sinful life or to sanctify their life in the service of the Holy One of Yisrael.
14)The physical liberty that our people obtained when they left the slavery of Mitsrayim (Egypt) and of Pharaoh was obtained exclusively eating roasted lamb, with certain characteristics and in a state of physical circumcision, however, this was not enough to stop the Yisraelite from sinning and from being a slave of his/her own passions and therefore not able to lead a life that is pleasing to the Eternal. True liberty, spiritual liberty is obtained by eating the spiritual Pesach Lamb Yahshua and to eat from Him, circumcision of the foreskin is not required. It is because of this that we find true believers of Yahshua who have been filled by the Ruach HaKodesh (the Set Apart Spirit) and I believe and understand that only a true believer in Yahshua can be filled with the Ruach HaKodesh, which true spiritual liberty and many of them have not been circumcised physically…
15) We can conclude that today and for the past 2000 years, the Pesach as celebrated by our people in Shemot (Exodus) 12 is not in force. Our Pesach is Yahshua, and the lamb of Pesach cannot be sacrificed again because Yahshua is our Pesach today and for eternity…
Let us remember that Hoshea (Hosea) is ordered to marry a prostitute and to have children of prostitution with her. This woman represents the House of Yisrael that mixes with the nations would produce the gentiles. Hoshea (a type of Messiah) gives this woman a letter of divorce, although, in chapter 3 the Eternal asks him to take her as a wife again. But before this happens, when the wife of Hoshea was out of the life  of the prophet he talks and says:

Hoshea (Hosea) 2:1-12
 1 “Say to your brothers, ‘O my people,’ and to your sisters, ‘O, compassioned one.’
 2 “Strive with your mother, strive, for she is not My wife, nor am I her Husband! Let her put away her whorings from her face, and her adulteries from between her breasts,
 3 lest I strip her naked, and shall set her up as on the day she was born, and shall make her like a wilderness, and shall set her like a dry land, and shall put her to death with thirst.
 4 “And I shall not have compassion on her children, for they are the children of whorings.
 5 “For their mother has whored, she who conceived them has acted shamelessly. For she said, ‘I go after my lovers, who give me my bread and my water, my wool and my linen, my oil and my drink.’
 6 “Therefore, see, I am hedging up your way with thorns, and I shall wall her in, so that she does not find her paths.
 7 “And she shall pursue her lovers but not overtake them, and shall seek them but not find them. Then she shall say, ‘Let me go and return to my first husband, for then it was better for me than now.’
 8 “And she did not acknowledge that I gave her grain, and new wine, and oil, and increased her silver and gold which they prepared for Baʽal.
 9 “Therefore I shall turn back and shall take my grain in its time and My new wine in its season, and I shall take away My wool and My linen covering her nakedness.
 10 “And now I shall uncover her shame before the eyes of her lovers, and no one shall deliver her from My hand.
 11 “And I shall cause all her rejoicing, her festivals, her New Moons, and her Sabbaths, even all her appointed times, to cease,
 12 and lay waste her vines and her fig trees, of which she has said, ‘these are my rewards that my lovers have given me.’ And I shall make them a forest, and the beasts of the field shall eat them.

There are two very important points here that are crucial to understand everything that we have said:
It is prophesied that Yahweh would: “cause all her rejoicing, her festivals, her New Moons, and her Sabbaths, even all her appointed times, to cease,”

The word “Festivals” in Hebrew is:
H2282 חָג chag; festival or a victim therefor—(solemn) feast (day), sacrifice, solemnity
From the root:
H2287 חָגַג chagag – celebrate, celebrate a feast, dancing, keeping festival, observe, reeled. A primitive root (compare chagra‘, chuwg); properly, to move in a circle, i.e. (specifically) to march in a sacred procession, to observe a festival; by implication, to be giddy — celebrate, dance, (keep, hold) a (solemn) feast (holiday), reel to and fro.
THEY CELEBRATE THE WRONGLY CALLED “THE LORD’S SUPPER” WHICH IS A PAGAN DISTORTION! The Rosh Chodesh (Head of the Month), New Moons and the Sabbaths also ceased.
The gentiles do not celebrate any of these, but it is because it was prophesied until He buys her back when He returns, although, by law, the House of Yisra’ĕl   was already bought on the tree 2000 years ago!
Finally, it says “ALL FESTIVE OCCASIONS” ceased!
Festive occasions in Hebrew Is:
That is to say the festivals, the Feasts and that including Pesach, Shavuot, Sukkot etc.
It means that the Pesach would not be celebrated correctly either, in the way it is ordered in the Torah


Lastly, take a look at this text which occurs in the Millenium Era:

Yehezqel (Ezekiel) 45:21-22
 21 “In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, you have the Passover, a festival of seven days, unleavened bread is eaten.
 22 “And on that day the prince shall prepare for himself and for all the people of the land a bull for a sin offering.

The “Prince” is Mashiach (Messiah) and Pesach will be celebrated again, but this time “no longer with a lamb” because HE is the Lamb of Pesach. It will be celebrated with a bull, in other words, a Chagigah will be celebrated.
If we celebrate a supper, we should do it “in Yahshua’s memory” as he says in Qorintiyim Aleph (1st Corinthians) 11, but not by eating lamb, rather as in a Korban Chagidah.

May Yahweh Elohim, Melech (King) of Yisra’ĕl, bring Shalom and Grace to your people and may all of us I, in unity, be able to participate in the Pesach Seder, with a humble heart and full of mercy, sincerity and truth.

Shalom to all!
