An increasing number of Christian churches, home groups, and families are partaking in Passover Seder meals these days. But is there any relevance of the symbolisms of Jewish tradition to followers of Christ? Let’s take a look. Matzah Bread
Jews commemorate the original Passover by eating Matzah (or unleavened) bread. We read in Exodus 12:39 , “They baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they had brought out of Egypt; for it was not leavened, because they were driven out of Egypt and could not wait.”
Even Christians can appreciate that from the standpoint of our Jewish roots, but it represents a whole other dimension to us! We can start at Jesus’ birth in Bethlehem. In Hebrew, it’s Beit (house) Lechem (bread), or “House of Bread.” Jesus said, “I am the bread of life” ( John 6:48 ), and “I am the living bread that came down out of heaven” ( John 6:51 ). Right before He was arrested, during His final Passover meal (“The Last Supper”) with His disciples, “He took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me” ( Luke 22:19 ).
The Jewish tradition is for the father in the family to break the matzah and wrap the larger piece in a white linen cloth . Even its appearance is striped and pierced . These all shout from the housetops “Jesus Christ!” Lamb Shank Bone
On the first Passover in Egypt, God told the Israelites to kill a lamb and put the blood on the top doorpost and both side posts so that the death angel would “pass over” their house ( Exodus 12 ).
What better symbolism for a Christian than that Passover lamb, a perfect type of Jesus […]
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
