Brit Chadasha Romiyah 9:30 - 10:13

Chapter 29:9

9 Keep therefore the words of this brit, and do them, that you may prosper in all that you do.

10 You stand this day all of you before YHWH your Elohim; your captains of your tribes, your zechanim, and your officers, with all the men of Yisrael,

11 Your little ones, your wives, and your gerim that are in your camp, from the cutter of your wood to the drawer of your mayim:

12 That you should enter a brit with YHWH your Elohim, and into His oath, which YHWH your Elohim makes with you this day:

13 That He may establish you today for a people to Himself, and that He may be to you an Elohim, as He has said to you, and as He has sworn to your ahvot, to Avraham, to Yitzchak, and to Yaakov.

14 Neither with you only do I make this brit and this oath;

15 But with him that stands here with us this day before YHWH our Elohim, and with him that is not here with us this day:

16 For you know how we have dwelt in the land of Mitzrayim; and how we came through the nations that you passed by;

17 And you have seen their abominations, and their idols, wood and stone, silver and gold, which were among them:

18 Lest there should be among you man, or woman, or mishpacha, or tribe, whose lev turns away this day from YHWH our Elohim, to go and serve the elohim of these nations; lest there should be among you a root that bears bitterness and wormwood;

19 And it comes to pass, when he hears the words of this curse, that he blesses himself in his lev, saying, I shall have shalom, though I have my halacha in the imagination of my lev, to add drunkenness to thirst:

20 YHWH will not spare him, but then the anger of YHWH and His jealousy shall be lit against that man, and all the curses that are written in this scroll shall lie upon him, and YHWH shall blot out his name from under the shamayim.

21 And YHWH shall separate him for evil out of all the tribes of Yisrael, according to the curses of the brit that are written in this scroll of the Torah:

22 So that the generation to come of your children that shall rise after you, and the ger that shall come from a far land, shall say, when they see the plagues of that land, and the sicknesses which YHWH has laid upon it;

23 And that the whole land is like that which is brimstone, and salt, and burning, that it is not sown, nor bears, nor any grass grows in it, like the overthrow of Sedom, and Amorah, Admah, and Zevoim, which YHWH overthrew in His anger, and in His wrath:

24 Even all nations shall say, why has YHWH done this to this land? What means the heat of this great anger?

25 Then men shall say, because they have forsaken the brit of YHWH Elohim of their ahvot, which He made with them when He brought them forth out of the land of Mitzrayim:

26 For they went and served other elohim, and worshipped them, elohim whom they knew not, and whom He had not given to them:

27 And the anger of YHWH was lit against this land, to bring upon it all the curses that are written in this scroll:

28 And YHWH rooted them out of their land in anger, and in wrath, and in great indignation, and cast them into another land, as it is this day.

29 The secret things belong to YHWH our Elohim: but those things that are revealed belong to us and to our children le-olam-va-ed, that we may do all the words of this Torah.

Chapter 30

1 And it shall come to pass, when all these things have come upon you, the blessing and the curse, which I have set before you, and you shall call them to mind among all the nations, where YHWH your Elohim has driven you,

2 And shall teshuvah to YHWH your Elohim, and shall obey His voice according to all that I command you this day, you and your children, with all your lev, and with all your

being;

3 That then YHWH your Elohim will turn your captivity, and have compassion upon you, and will return and gather you from all the nations, where YHWH your Elohim has scattered you.

4 If any of you are driven out to the farthest parts of the shamayim, from there will YHWH your Elohim gather you, and from there will He fetch you:

5 And YHWH your Elohim will bring you into the land that your ahvot possessed, and you shall possess it; and He will do you tov, and multiply you above your ahvot.

6 And YHWH your Elohim will perform brit-milah upon your lev, and the lev of your zera/seed, to love YHWH your Elohim with all your lev, and with all your being, that you may live.

7 And YHWH your Elohim will put all these curses upon your enemies and on them that hate you, who persecute you.

8 And you shall make teshuvah and obey the voice of YHWH, and do all His mitzvoth which I command you this day.

9 And YHWH your Elohim will make you have excess in every work of your hand, in the fruit of your body, and in the fruit of your cattle, and in the fruit of your land, for tov: for YHWH will again gilah over you for tov, as He rejoiced over your ahvot:

10 If you shall listen to the voice of YHWH your Elohim, to shomer His mitzvoth, and His chukim which are written in this scroll of the Torah, and if you turn to YHWH your Elohim with all your lev, and with all your being.

11 For this mitzvah, which I command you this day, is not hidden from you, neither is it far off.

12 It is not in the shamayim, that you should say, who shall go up for us to the shamayim, and bring it to us, that we may hear, and do it?

13 Neither is it beyond the sea that you should say, who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it to us, that we may hear, and do it?

14 But the Word is very near to you, in your mouth, and in your lev, and in your hand, that you may do it.

15 See, I have set before you this day chayim and tov, and death and evil;

16 In that I command you this day to love YHWH your Elohim, to have your halacha in His halachot, and to shomer His mitzvoth and His chukim and His mishpatim rulings, that you may live and multiply: and YHWH your Elohim shall bless you in the land which you are going to possess.

17 But if your lev turns away, so that you will not hear, but shall be drawn away to worship other elohim, and serve them;

18 I declare to you this day, that you shall surely perish, and that you shall not prolong your days upon the land, which you pass over the Yarden to go to possess.

19 I call the shamayim and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you chayim and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose chayim, that both you and your zera may live:

20 That you may love YHWH your Elohim, and that you may obey His voice, and that you may cleave to Him: for He is your chayim, and the length of your days: that you may dwell in the land which YHWH swore to your ahvot to Avraham, to Yitzchak, and to Yaakov, to give them.

Haft Haftarah

Yeshayahu 61:1 - 63:9

1 The Ruach of the Master YHWH is upon Me; because YHWH has anointed Me to preach the Besorah to the meek; He has sent Me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the exiles, recovery of sight to the blind and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

2 To proclaim the acceptable year of YHWH, and the day of vengeance of our Elohim; to comfort all that mourn;

3 To appoint to them that mourn in Tzion, to give to them a crown for ashes, the oil of simcha for mourning, the garment of hallel for the ruach of heaviness; that they might be called eytzim of tzedakah, the planting of YHWH, that He might be lifted up.

4 And they shall rebuild the old ruins, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the ruined cities, the desolations of many generations.

5 And foreigners shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.

6 But you shall be named the Kohanim of YHWH: Men shall call you the avadim of our Elohim: you shall overcome the strength of the nations, and in their tifereth shall you boast yourselves.

7 For your shame you shall have a double portion of inheritance; and you shall simcha in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double portion: and everlasting simcha shall be theirs.

8 For I YHWH love mishpat, I hate robbery for burnt offerings; and I will direct their work in emet, and I will make an Everlasting Brit with them.

9 And their zera shall be known among the nations, and their offspring among the peoples: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the zera that YHWH has blessed.

10 I will greatly simcha in YHWH, my being shall be full of simcha in my Elohim; for He has clothed me with the garments of YaShua; He has covered me with the robe of tzedakah, as a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

11 For as the earth brings forth her bud, and as the garden causes the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Master YHWH will cause tzedakah and hallel to spring forth before all the nations.

Chapter 62

1 For Tzion's sake will I not hold My shalom, and for Yahrushalayim’s sake I will not rest, until the tzedakah of it goes forth as brightness, and the YaShua of it as a lamp that burns.

2 And the nations shall see Your tzedakah, and all melechim Your tifereth: and you shall be called by a new name, which the mouth of YHWH shall name.

3 You shall also be a keter of tifereth in the hand of YHWH, and a royal diadem in the hand of your Elohim.

4 You shall no more be termed: Uzuvah- Forsaken; neither shall your land anymore be termed Desolate: but you shall be called: Hephzi-Vah-My Delight Is In Her, and your land Beulah-Married; for YHWH delights in you, and your land shall be married.

5 For just as a young man marries a virgin, so shall your sons marry you: and as the bridegroom has simcha over the bride, so shall your Elohim simcha over you.

6 I have set watchmen upon your walls, O Yahrushalayim, which shall never hold their shalom, day, or night: you that make mention of YHWH, keep not silent,

7 And give Him no rest, until He establishes, and makes Yahrushalayim a hallel in the earth.

8 YHWH has sworn by His Right Hand, and by the Arm of His strength, surely I will no more give your grain to be food for your enemies; and the sons of the ger shall not drink your wine, that for which you have labored:

9 But they that have gathered it shall eat it, and hallel YHWH; and they that have brought it together shall drink it in the places of My kadosh courts.

10 Go through, go through the gates; prepare the derech of the people; build up, build up the highway; get rid of the stones; lift up a banner for the nations.

11 See, YHWH has proclaimed to the ends of the olam, say to the daughter of Tzion, See, your YaShua comes; see, His reward is with Him, and His work before Him.

12 And they shall call them, the kadosh people, the redeemed of YHWH: and you shall be called, Sought Out, A city not forsaken.

Chapter 63

1 Who is this that comes from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? This that is with tifereth in His apparel, traveling in the greatness of His strength? It is I that speak in tzedakah, mighty to save.

2 Why are you red in Your apparel, and Your garments like him that tramples in the winepress?

3 I have trampled the winepress alone; and from the nations there was none with Me: for I will trample them in My anger, and trample them in My fury; and their dahm shall be sprinkled upon My garments, and I will stain all My garments.

4 For the day of vengeance is in My lev, and the year of My redeemed has come.

5 And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore My own Arm brought YaShua to Me; and in My fury, it upheld Me.

6 And I will trample down the nations in My anger, and make them drunk in My fury, and I will bring down their strength to the earth.

7 I will mention the loving chesed of YHWH, and the tehillot of YHWH, according to all that YHWH has bestowed on us, and the great tov toward Beit Yisrael, which He has bestowed on them according to His many rachamim, and according to the multitude of His loving chesed.

8 For He said, surely they are Ami-My People, children that will not lie: so He became their Savior.

9 In all their affliction He was afflicted, and the Malach of His Presence saved them: in His ahava and in His pity He redeemed them; and He lifted them, and carried them all the days of old.

Brit Chadasha

Romiyah 9:30 - 10:13

30 What shall we say then? That the nations, who followed not after the Torah of tzedakah, have attained tzedakah, even the tzedakah that comes by emunah.

31 But Yisrael, which followed after the Torah of tzedakah, has not attained the goal of the Torah of tzedakah.

32 Why not? Because they sought it not by emunah, but as it were by the mitzvoth of the Torah alone. For they stumbled at that Stumbling Stone;

33 As it is written, see, I lay in Tzion a Stumbling Stone and Rock of Offense: and whoever believes on Him shall not be ashamed.

Chapter 10

1 Yisraelite brothers, my lev’s desire and tefillah to YHWH for Yisrael is, that they might be saved.

2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal for YHWH, but not according to da’at.

3 For they being ignorant of YHWH’s tzedakah, go about to establish their own tzedakah, have not submitted themselves to the tzedakah of YHWH.

4 For Moshiach is the actual goal of the Torah for an eternal tzadik standing to everyone that believes.

5 For Moshe describes the tzedakah that comes from the Torah: That the man who does those things shall live by them.

6 But the tzedakah that is of emunah speaks in this manner; Say not in your lev, who shall ascend into the shamayim? That is, to bring the Moshiach down from above:

7 Or, Who shall descend into the deep? That is, to bring up the Moshiach again from the dead.

8 But what does Torah actually say? The word is near you, even in your mouth, and in your lev: that is, the word of emunah, which we proclaim;

9 That if you shall confess with your mouth the Master YaShua, and shall believe in your lev that YHWH has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved.

10 For with the lev man believes to tzedakah the mouth confession is made to YaShua.

11 For the Katuv says, whoever believes on Him shall not be ashamed.

12 For there is no difference between the Yahudi and the Greek or the Aramean: for the same Master YHWH is over all and is rich in rachamim to all that call upon Him.

13 For whoever shall call upon the Name of the Master YHWH shall be saved.

Messianic Hagadah

Pre prep: have 3 matzos in the bag; break the middle one later.

 

KIDDISH

Welcome. There are many elements and shadow pictures that will be displayed here tonight, a remembrance of a long ago exodus out of Mitzrayim, and Moshe, a type of Messiah, and the story for us today, the story of our Messiah YaShua.

We are commanded to rid our homes of all Chametz and clean up our dwelling in honor of the arrival of our Honored Guest; YHWH/YaShua. So, let us pray at this time to YHWH our Elohim that we are found free of any leaven that might blind us and mar our relationship with HIM.

 

Pray -

We are gathered here again, another Seder or Order, keeping the Commandment of YHWH that each year we are to observe and tell the Exodus story throughout our generations. It is the story of how Israel called out to the Elohim of Avraham, Yitzchak, and Yaakov, to deliver them from out of the bondage of Mitzrayim into the Promised Land; HE heard their cries, and HE redeemed them from slavery. Yes, HE redeemed HIS chosen people. It is so important that it happens to be the very first Commandment and it reads; Exodus chapter 20:2 I am YHWH your Elohim, Who brought you out of the land of Mitzrayim, out of the house of slaves. This is a time of thanksgiving before HIM and realize that there is coming an even greater Exodus; out of the nations, when our Messiah YaShua leads US home to the Promised Land! Today, know that HIS Torah is a great “shadow picture” of good things to come, as the Apostle Shaul wrote. Today YaShua Messiah, will hear our cry and redeem us from death unto life eternal, when we receive mercy instead of death for breaking HIS Torah Commandments and releases us from the bondage of sin. I ask tonight that you consider each of the scriptures and prayers that you will hear this evening.

 

At this time we will light the lights, of this Seder celebration.

 

Candle Lighting: Bharuch Atah yom tov. Blessed are you, YHWH, King of the Universe, who has sanctified us by your commandments, and has commanded us to kindle the Festival lights. Amen. Bharuch Atah YHWH Eloheynu Melekh ha'olam asher she-he-kan-nu v'-ki-yi-mo-nu v'-hi-gi-anu l'zman ha-zey. Blessed are you, YHWH, King of the Universe, who has kept us in life and has preserved us, and has enabled us to reach this season. Amen.

 

Let us look at the elements we will use during the Seder;

During the Passover Seder we will drink three glasses of wine: The Cup of Sanctification, The Cup of Redemption and the Cup of Praise. We will say the traditional Hebrew prayers before drinking each cup.

 

The CUPS:

SANCTIFICATION:

Traditional - We are to be clean of leaven.

- Yochanan 13:31 When, Yuda went out, Rebbe Melech Ha Moshiach says; now the Ben HaAdam receives kavod and YHWH is given kavod in him. “and the room then was clean of leaven.”

Fulfillment - We are to be clean of sin -- YaShua is the only way to be cleansed of our sins.

PLAGUES:

Traditional - Remembrance of the Plagues in Egypt (We don’t drink this cup)

Fulfillment - Remembrance of our trials and tribulations - develops perseverance, humility and maturity in our walk with YaShua

REDEMPTION:

Traditional - Symbolizes the blood of the Passover lamb who saved the Israelites from death

Fulfillment - YaShua is our Passover Lamb whose blood saves us from death.

This cup is the cup used in communion or YHWH's Supper.

PRAISE:

Traditional - Give thanks to YHWH for guiding the Israelites out of Egypt

Fulfillment - We are to always have praise on our lips for our salvation that is given through YaShua Messiah.

 

The Torah teaches us that there are four things under Heaven that cannot be separated, and they are as follows:

YHWH / Torah = they are echad, or one

YHWH / YaShua = they too are echad, one

Mercy / grace = they go hand in hand, one magnifying the other

Faith / Torah obedience = one is the witness of the other

 

1st CUP – Sanctification

Bless YHWH for the wine.

 

(At this time we drink the first cup)

 

The KARPAS (Parsley)

Exodus 2:23-25

23 The Israelites groaned in their slavery and cried out, and their cry for help, because of their slavery, went up to YHWH.

24 YHWH heard their groaning and He remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac and with Jacob.

25 So YHWH looked on the Israelites with compassion.

 

Eating the Karpas - Take the parsley, called kar-pas dip it into the salt water twice and eat it. We do this to symbolize the salty bitter tears of our slavery.

 

At this time we break the middle matzo

The broken piece is called "the bread of affliction or Afikomen."

 

(Remove and break the middle matzah in two relatively equal pieces.)

We will eat one half and the other half, called the Afikomen, or the dessert we place in the Afikomen bag or pouch.

 

(we put it in the Afikomen pouch.)

 

MAGGID - the “messenger” who says: Shema Yisrael (Hear O’Israel and obey)

Deuteronomy 6:4-9

4 Hear, O Israel: YHWH your Elohim is Echad.

5 Love YHWH your Elohim with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.

6 These commandments that I give you today are to be written on your heart.

7 Impress them on your children. Talk of them when you sit at home and when you walk by the way, when you lie down and when you rise up.

8 bind them on your arm and on your foreheads.

9 Write them on the door posts and on your gates.

 

Deuteronomy 6:20-25;

20 in the future, when your sons ask you, "What is the meaning of the laws that YHWH our Elohim has commanded you?"

21 Tell him: "We were slaves of Pharaoh in Egypt, but YHWH Elohim brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand.

22 Before our eyes YHWH sent miraculous signs and wonders--great and terrible--upon Egypt and Pharaoh and his whole household.

23 But he brought us out from there, to give us the land that he promised to our forefathers.

24 YHWH commanded us to obey Torah and to fear YHWH our Elohim, so that we might always prosper and be kept alive, as is the case today.

25 And if we are obedient to obey Torah before YHWH our Elohim, as he has commanded us, that will be our righteousness."

AND:

Exodus 12:26-27;

26 and it shall come to pass, when your banim shall say unto you, Mah ha avodah hazot lachem (What is this service to you)?

27 That you shall say, It is the zevach of YHWH's Pesach, (who passed over or spared) the batim (households) of the Bnei Yisrael in Mitzrayim, when HE struck down the Egyptians, and spared bateinu (our houses). And the people bowed down and worshiped.

 

THE FOUR QUESTIONS:

Ma nish-ta-nah ha-lai-lah ha-zeh mi-kol ha-ley-lot! She-be-khol ha-ley-lot a-nu okh-lin kha-meytz u-ma-tzah.

Ha-lai-lah ha-zeh ku-lo ma-tzah. She-be-khol ha-ley-lot a-nu okh-lin she'ar yerakot. Ha-lai-lah ha-zeh a-ror.

She-be-khol ha-ley-lot eyn a-nu mat-bi-lin a-fi-lu pa-'am e-khet. Ha-lai-lah ha-zeh shtey f'a-min.

She-be-khol ha-ley-lot a-nu okh-lin beyn yo-she-vin u-veyn me-su-bin. Ha-lai-lah ha-zeh ku-la-nu me-su-bin.

 

How different this night is from all other nights!

On all other nights we eat bread or matzah. On this night why do we eat only matzah?

On all other nights we eat all kinds of vegetables. On this night why do we eat only bitter herbs?

On all other nights we do not dip our vegetables even once. On this night why do we dip them twice?

On all other nights we eat our meals sitting or reclining. On this night why do we eat only reclining?

Tonight is different from all other nights because tonight we will remember what YHWH has done for his people.

 

We the story of Passover.

A long time had gone by and the Pharaoh who remembered Yoseph, died. Out of fear of our great number, the new Pharaoh feared we would rise up against them, so they put us under harsh bondage. For four-hundred years the Israelites groaned under bondage and cried out to YHWH and HE heard their cries. YHWH chose Moshe (a type of Messiah) who was raised up in Pharaoh’s house, was destined to lead us out of Egypt. Later YHWH appeared to Moses in a burning bush and told him that he would use him to lead HIS people out of Egypt and into a land "flowing with milk and honey." So Moses returned to Egypt riding on a donkey. We see a shadow picture of Our Messiah who came into Yahrushalayim “riding on a donkey.”

The Egyptians worshipped many gods, and YHWH sent 10 plagues upon Egypt’s gods showing Pharaoh that they were not gods at all, but there was only ONE true Elohim, and that was the Elohim of Avraham, Yitzchak, and Yaakov. With each plague Pharaoh refused to let the Israelites go, the land of Egypt came under a great plague a tenth and awful plague, where the heart of Pharaoh would be pierced. The death of the “first-born.” The Pesach or Passover of Yisrael!

Exodus 12:12 on that same night I will pass through Egypt and strike down every firstborn--both men and animals--and I will bring judgment on all the gods of Egypt. I am YHWH.

 

Exodus 12:13 and the blood on the houses where you are staying shall be a sign for you: when I see the blood, I will pass over you, so that no plague will destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt.

 

2nd CUP - CUP OF PLAGUES: Let us fill our cups a second time.

Bless our Father for the wine.

A full cup is a sign of joy and on this night we are filled with joy in remembrance of YHWH's mighty deliverance. We must also remember the great sacrifice at which redemption was purchased. Lives were sacrificed to bring the Israelites out of the bondage of Egypt. As we recite each plague, let us dip our little finger into the cup, allowing a drop of wine to fall, reducing the fullness of our cup of joy this night.

ALL recite:

Blood!

Frogs!

Gnats!

Wild Beasts!

Disease to Livestock!

Boils!

Hail!

Locusts!

Darkness!

Death of the Firstborn!

 

PASSOVER: It is YHWH that we honor in remembering that HE passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt when HE struck the Egyptians. (Lifting the shank bone of a lamb) The shank bone reminds us of the lamb whose blood marked the doors of the Israelites. We read in Exodus that the lamb was to be of its first year, without defect, and brought into the household and cared for. It was then between the evenings, on the fourteenth day of the month, that the Israelites were to kill the lamb and put the blood on the sides and tops of the door frames. YHWH gave HIS people instructions that only through obedience would they be spared from the angel of death. Isaiah told of the coming Messiah, that HE would be led like a lamb to the slaughter. We know that YaShua was our final blood atonement so that we would be freed from the bondage of sin and we would be passed over and spared from the death penalty for breaking YHWH’s Torah Commandments, receiving mercy instead of death.

Revelation 5:12 "Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!"

 

SHANK BONE

We remember that YHWH commanded that no bones were to be broken – hence this also was the commandment that no bone of YaShua was to be broken.

The Israelites were saved by YHWH. For it is written:

Exodus 12:12 “On that same night I will pass through Egypt and strike down every firstborn--both men and animals--and I will bring judgment on all the gods of Egypt. I am YHWH your Elohim"

 

MATZAH

(Holding up the matzah plate)

Exodus 12:39 Why do we eat this unleavened bread? The dough did not have time to rise before YHWH revealed himself to them and redeemed them.

(Do not eat the Matzah at this time.)

 

MAROR (Horseradish) why do we eat bitter herbs? We eat bitter herbs because of the hardship that the Israelites had to bear. As it is written:

Exodus 1:14 They made their lives bitter with hard labor in brick and mortar and with all kinds of work in the fields; in all their hard labor the Egyptians used them ruthlessly.

(Everyone eat Matzah with Maror, bitter herbs.)

 

KORECH how we are to eat the Pesach

Exodus 12:11 this is how you are to eat the Passover: with your cloak tucked into your belt, your sandals on your feet and your staff in your hand. Eat it in haste; it is YHWH's Passover.

Numbers 9:11 they are to celebrate it on the fourteenth day of the second month at twilight. They are to eat the lamb, together with unleavened bread and bitter herbs.

 

Third CUP (the cup of Redemption)

Fill your cup! This is the cup of Redemption

We do not drink at this time!

 

CHAROSET (the mortar we used to lay the bricks we made)

Charoset is a mixture of honey, apples, nuts, cinnamon, and wine. With this we see the sweetness of HIS mercy and grace.

- Let us now eat matzah, Charoset, and Maror and remember the bitterness /sweetness of the grace, mercy and love that YHWH has for each of us, for HE sent YaShua, our Messiah, to be our Passover Lamb. We too, like the Israelites released from the bondage of slavery, can be saved from the bondage of sin.

Eat the Matzah with Maror and Charoset.) with of course the wine!

How great is YHWH's goodness to us! For each of HIS acts of mercy and kindness we declare dayenu [die-YAY-new] - it would have been sufficient.

 

If YHWH had merely rescued us, but had not judged the Egyptians.

day-ye-nu!

If HE had only destroyed their gods, but had not parted the Red Sea.

Day-ye-nu!

If HE had only drowned our enemies, but had not fed us with manna.

Day-ye-nu!

If HE had only led us through the desert, but had not given us the Sabbath.

day-ye-nu!

If HE had only given us the Torah, but not the land of Israel.

day-ye-nu!

SHULCHAN ORECH

A prayer. Break to eat the Passover Supper. LET’S EAT

Everyone returns to finish reading the Haggadah.

Save room for the dessert -- the Afikomen.

After dinner:

Lifting the Afikomen

We will now eat the Afikomen, the dessert. The taste of the Afikomen should linger in our mouths. It is about the Afikomen that YaShua said "This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of Me." (Luke 22:19) The Passover cannot be completed without the Afikomen, nor can our redemption be complete without YaShua, the Bread of Life, and our Messiah!

Bless our Father for the Bread

(All eat the Afikomen)

 

THE 4th CUP Praise

Bless our Father for the wine

Fill your cup this fourth time! This is the Cup of Redemption, symbolizing the blood of the Passover Lamb. It was this cup "after supper", with which Yeshua identified himself –

Luke 22:20 “This cup is the new covenant in MY blood, which is poured out for you."

 

(Drink the fourth cup of wine.)

 

(Lifting the extra cup for Elijah)

If you’ve noticed, we have a place setting which no one used. This was set for Elijah who was to come before Messiah. An old tradition was to have a child get up and go open the door and look for Elijah who was to come ahead of Messiah. But in the Messianic redemption, we open the door, indicating our readiness to receive the Prophet Elijah, the herald of the Messiah. We must also now open our hearts to the truth.

Matthew who spoke of Yochanan the immerser;

Matthew 11:14And if you are willing to accept it, he is the Elijah who was to come."

 

This same Yochanan said;

Yochanan/John 1:29 it was John who saw YaShua and declared, "Look, the Lamb of YHWH, who takes away the sin of the world!"

 

NIRTZAH paid for, or pardoned

Yirmeyahu 31:31-34)

31 "The time is coming," declares YHWH, "when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.

32 It will not be like the covenant I made with their forefathers when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they broke my covenant, though I was a husband to them, “declares YHWH.

33 "This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel after that time," declares YHWH. "I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their Elohim, and they will be my people.

34 No longer will a man teach his neighbor, or a man his brother, saying, 'Know YHWH,' because they will all know ME, from the least of them to the greatest," declares YHWH. "For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more."
