Exodus 12:27 that you shall say, 'It is the sacrifice of Yahweh's Passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he struck the Egyptians, and spared our houses.'" The people bowed their heads and worshiped.

The first passover what an exciting event, the calumniation of YHWH wrath upon all the false god's of Egypt and the deliverance of God's people into the freedom of worshiping of their God Jehovah in pure worship, freed of the corruption and contamination of false religion.

Deuteronomy 16:2 You shall sacrifice the Passover to Yahweh your God, of the flock and the herd, in the place which Yahweh shall choose, to cause his name to dwell there.

Ezra 6:20 For the priests and the Levites had purified themselves together; all of them were pure: and they killed the Passover for all the children of the captivity, and for their brothers the priests, and for themselves.

Ezekiel 45:21 In the first [month], in the fourteenth day of the month, you shall have the Passover, a feast of seven days; unleavened bread shall be eaten.

But few, consider the cost in lives for the freedom of others, nor the cost in innocent life of a passover lamb to save their own family. Nothing God has done for mankind has been easy, or without great cost to himself and the human race. The idea, the reality of pure worship has been rooted in the suffering of God's people forever, that is, since the world was founded in sin and death.

Heb.11:24 By faith, Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter,
11:25 choosing rather to share ill treatment with God's people, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a time;
11:26 accounting the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures of Egypt; for he looked to the reward.
11:27 By faith, he left Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king; for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.
11:28 By faith, he kept the Passover, and the sprinkling of the blood, that the destroyer of the firstborn should not touch them.
11:29 By faith, they passed through the Red Sea as on dry land. When the Egyptians tried to do so, they were swallowed up.

The Last Passover

The last passover was completed two thousand's years ago in the upper room with the passover lamb of God, and his chosen disciples in a very private meeting that effected the lives of millions. The rejection of God's people for being contaminated with false worships, and the blessing of a new and lasting covenant with God through Christ Jesus in truth and Spirit.

Heb.9:24 For Christ hasn't entered into holy places made with hands, which are representations of the true, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us;
9:25 nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest enters into the holy place year by year with blood not his own,
9:26 or else he must have suffered often since the foundation of the world. But now once at the end of the ages, he has been revealed to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.

No longer would God need to deliver his people from false religion, Christ is the truth and soon his life, the truth, would be incorruptible, never corrupting into false religion, never into a mundane perfunctory acts of eye service before men judging his brothers or sister relationship with Christ and his Father, each one, not everyone would be taught personally by God. No longer stranger, but son's of God.

Heb.1:1 God, having in the past spoken to the fathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways,
1:2 has at the end of these days spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, through whom also he made the worlds.
1:3 His Son is the radiance of his glory, the very image of his substance, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself made purification for our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
1:4 having become so much better than the angels, as he has inherited a more excellent name than they have.

1Cor.4:1 So let a man think of us as Christ's servants, and stewards of God's mysteries.
4:2 Here, moreover, it is required of stewards, that they be found faithful.
4:3 But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged by you, or by man's judgment. Yes, I don't judge my own self.
4:4 For I know nothing against myself. Yet I am not justified by this, but he who judges me is the Lord.
4:5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and reveal the counsels of the hearts. Then each man will get his praise from God.

Yes, Christ completed perfectly the law, the passover, and all the appending festival at God's earthly temple. Christ the passover lamb of God was so perfect in his love for the Father YHWH that he satisfied in everyway the contract, and/or old covenant with God people long after the first passover at mount Sinai.

Rom.10:1 Brothers, my heart's desire and my prayer to God is for Israel, that they may be saved. 10:2 For I testify about them that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge.
10:3 For being ignorant of God's righteousness, and seeking to establish their own righteousness, they didn't subject themselves to the righteousness of God. 10:4 For Christ is the fulfillment{or, completion, or end} of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.

1 John 3:23 This is his commandment, that we should believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and love one another, even as he commanded.

1 John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God, and knows God.

Christ followers would be delivered out of false religion into the the living incorruptible life of Christ Jesus our truth, by God's Spirit in a few short days after Christ brutal and painful death. Completed was the command to celebrate the passover, soon the entire temple of God that should have been pure worship would be destroyed off the earth by Roman empire.

Colossians 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in eating, or in drinking, or with respect to a feast day or a new moon or a Sabbath day,

God would deliver each child of God from the corruption of their flesh, where the root, the seed, if you will, of all false religion started and ends. All would die in Christ and be made alive, and given a new life in the life of Christ, what a profound and everlasting finality to God eternal plan for setting all creation free from the corruption of sin, and death!

1 Peter 1:23 having been born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, through the word of God, which lives and remains forever.

1 Peter 3:18 Because Christ also suffered for sins once, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring you to God; being put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit;

Colossians 2:13 You were dead through your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh. He made you alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses,

Sacred and pure worship was found in Christ Jesus the temple of the living God, how marvelous, how wonderful is that thought; truth and love existed in a living beautiful spirit person not in rock and mortar; where each of us must worship in the power of life. What value God places in life, all is mundane and perfunctory when compared to our relationship with life, that is, each other, and our Father and the Son of God.

1 John 3:14 We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brothers. He who doesn't love his brother remains in death.

Can anything on earth be liken to the life of Christ Jesus? What power God places on life, on our relationship with each other in what Christ suffered to save us?

2 Peter 1:4 by which he has granted to us his precious and exceedingly great promises; that through these you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world by lust.

What Divides?

So much divides the human race, so much divides the flesh, what a rascal it is? Never satisfied, always longing for more, living in judgment and fears. Yes, our life long accuser day and night found in the lust of our flesh, it is, the divider and chief never giving up or stopping its march into death.

Romans 7:18 For I know that in me, that is, in my flesh, dwells no good thing. For desire is present with me, but I don't find it doing that which is good.

Yet, God choose something that stops the flesh cold dead in its tracks, he gave us completed trust in his love, how? Now please stop and think very seriously about this thought?

God gave us life, a life, that redeemed us from what? The judgment of the flesh which divides each one of us into false religion. The night of Christ death, on the last passover, Christ did not talk about judgment, or how he would judge his apostles giving then a bunch of new rules of days to celbrate, but forgiveness of each and every child of God. Have you connected the dots? Freedom and deliverance comes from the power of forgiveness of debt.

Titus3:1 Remind them to be in subjection to rulers and to authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work,
3:2 to speak evil of no one, not to be contentious, to be gentle, showing all humility toward all men.
3:3 For we were also once foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving various lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. 3:4 But when the kindness of God our Savior and his love toward mankind appeared,
3:5 not by works of righteousness, which we did ourselves, but according to his mercy, he saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit,
3:6 whom he poured out on us richly, through Jesus Christ our Savior; 3:7 that, being justified by his grace, we might be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.

Subsequently, we have unlocked the key ingredient to all false religion unwittingly, and what is that key? Lack of forgiveness causing debt that must be paid of for a price, what price? Service to a person, a things, a date, a festival of a new moon, a temple, a religion, a thing!

Col.2:6 As therefore you received Christ Jesus, the Lord, walk in him,
2:7 rooted and built up in him, and established in the faith, even as you were taught, abounding in it in thanksgiving.
2:8 Be careful that you don't let anyone rob you through his philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the elements of the world, and not after Christ.
2:9 For in him all the fullness of the Godhead dwells bodily,
2:10 and in him you are made full, who is the head of all principality and power;
2:11 in whom you were also circumcised with a circumcision not made with hands, in the putting off of the body of the sins of the flesh, in the circumcision of Christ;
2:12 having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through faith in the working of God, who raised him from the dead.
2:13 You were dead through your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh. He made you alive together with him, having forgiven us all our trespasses,
2:14 wiping out the handwriting in ordinances which was against us; and he has taken it out of the way, nailing it to the cross;
2:15 having stripped the principalities and the powers, he made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in eating, or in drinking, or with respect to a feast day or a new moon or a Sabbath day,
2:17 which are a shadow of the things to come; but the body is Christ's.
2:18 Let no one rob you of your prize by a voluntary humility and worshipping of the angels, dwelling in the things which he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,
2:19 and not holding firmly to the Head, from whom all the body, being supplied and knit together through the joints and ligaments, grows with God's growth.
2:20 If you died with Christ from the elements of the world, why, as though living in the world, do you subject yourselves to ordinances,
2:21 "Don't handle, nor taste, nor touch"
2:22 (all of which perish with use), according to the precepts and doctrines of men?
2:23 Which things indeed appear like wisdom in self-imposed worship, and humility, and severity to the body; but aren't of any value against the indulgence of the flesh.

Christ did not put a heavy debt upon his disciples, he did not make a law that must be obeyed each year, no! He removed the perfunctory things people always put more emphasis on rather than life, and the love we are to show for one another. Christ removed sight worship, the things we can put upon our calendars to celebrate, he removed all objects that might be worshiped that ones could look at to judge the truth, what truth?

2 Corinthians 5:7 for we walk by faith, not by sight.

2 Corinthians 8:7 But as you abound in everything, in faith, utterance, knowledge, all earnestness, and in your love to us, see that you also abound in this grace.

Truth, lets us think, what is the profound truth of pure worship? It is from the heart of each one of us in communion with God and Christ that is in constant contact with our heart and spirit.

The scariness of worship is in Spirit, with our spirit that is the truth that was lost by the lie, what lie? The flesh.

Romans 8:5 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.

Romans 8:6 For the mind of the flesh is death, but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace;

Romans 8:7 because the mind of the flesh is hostile towards God; for it is not subject to God's law, neither indeed can it be.

We commune in sacred worship on the bread of life always, each day, there is not a day more sacred than another for those anointed, born again by Holy Spirit, what is Holy Spirit if its not sacred and Holy? God is not limiting our approach to him to one day a year, or some day at the perfect time of the moon.

Romans 14:5 One man esteems one day as more important. Another esteems every day alike. Let each man be fully assured in his own mind.

Romans 14:6 He who observes the day, observes it to the Lord; and he who does not observe the day, to the Lord he does not observe it. He who eats, eats to the Lord, for he gives God thanks. He who doesn't eat, to the Lord he doesn't eat, and gives God thanks.

2 Corinthians 6:2 for he says, "At an acceptable time I listened to you, in a day of salvation I helped you."{Isaiah 49:8} Behold, now is the acceptable time. Behold, now is the day of salvation.

At what cost, what debt did God pay throughout the entire history of mankind for us, to gain us into a Father son relationship? We desire to be well pleasing to our Father, but let us not move into things thinking we must gain greater approval than Christ. We have been given and indescribable gift, priceless, the find pearl, let us cling to our truth and Spirit, let us put off any and all things that hinders the love and comfort of the Spirit in us.

John 3:8 The wind{The same Greek word (pneuma) means wind, breath, and spirit.} blows where it wants to, and you hear its sound, but don't know where it comes from and where it is going. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit."

John 4:24 God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth."

John 6:63 It is the spirit who gives life. The flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and are life.

Let us remember the Christ by Spirit, let us be lead into all the power of life in the power of God's kingdom Christ Jesus. Let us remember, not created a new rule, commandments on this night, let us remember how Christ suffered to free us from captivity of our flesh in suffering in his own for our sins. But above all, the excelling way is love, the freedom God is love, and the love frees us from judgment return good for evil, let us do the same!

John 4:23 But the hour comes, and now is, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such to be his worshippers.

1 Corinthians 6:11 Such were some of you, but you were washed. But you were sanctified. But you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and in the Spirit of our God.

1 Corinthians 6:17 But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit.

1 Corinthians 6:19 Or don't you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit which is in you, which you have from God? You are not your own,
2 Corinthians 3:3 being revealed that you are a letter of Christ, served by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tablets of stone, but in tablets that are hearts of flesh.

2 Corinthians 3:6 who also made us sufficient as servants of a new covenant; not of the letter, but of the Spirit. For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.

2 Corinthians 3:8 won't service of the Spirit be with much more glory?

Comments from another website

Dear John,

I appreciate you concerns and also your comments. First. I think it important to take a person conscience into serious consideration regarding this subject.

Rom.14:5 One man esteems one day as more important. Another esteems every day alike. Let each man be fully assured in his own mind.
14:6 He who observes the day, observes it to the Lord; and he who does not observe the day, to the Lord he does not observe it. He who eats, eats to the Lord, for he gives God thanks. He who doesn't eat, to the Lord he doesn't eat, and gives God thanks.
14:7 For none of us lives to himself, and none dies to himself.

Rom.14:13 Therefore let's not judge one another any more, but judge this rather, that no man put a stumbling block in his brother's way, or an occasion for falling.

The conscience is very powerful and if someone believes something is sacred and is a sin if the person does or does not do something it is vital to their relationship with God. When we judge something as for God or going against God if we do it or don't then we sin.

1 Corinthians 8:12 Thus, sinning against the brothers, and wounding their conscience when it is weak, you sin against Christ.

1 Corinthians 10:28 But if anyone says to you, "This was offered to idols," don't eat it for the sake of the one who told you, and for the sake of conscience. For "the earth is the Lord's, and all its fullness."

First, the anointed all of them are born again into a scared service to minister the Holy Spirit. That is the reason Monday or Saturday is not a day more important than any another day because those days none of them are more scared than another all are scared if we are a living service in Christ.

1Pet.2:9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God's own possession, that you may proclaim the excellence of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light: 2:10 who in time past were no people, but now are God's people, who had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy.

1Pet. 2:5 You also, as living stones, are built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 10:29 Conscience, I say, not your own, but the other's conscience. For why is my liberty judged by another conscience?

Romans 12:1 Therefore I urge you, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service.

Secondly, Christ came to fulfill the law, which law instituted many scared months and days, some of which if violated would end in death. After Christ fulfilled those mundane ritual that were life and death to the flesh he did not anywhere re-institute them or have his disciples do the same.

Ephesians 5:2 Walk in love, even as Christ also loved you, and gave himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling fragrance.

Philippians 2:17 Yes, and if I am poured out on the sacrifice and service of your faith, I rejoice, and rejoice with you all.

1 Corinthians 6:12 "All things are lawful for me," but not all things are expedient. "All things are lawful for me," but I will not be brought under the power of anything.

1 Corinthians 10:23 "All things are lawful for me," but not all things are profitable. "All things are lawful for me," but not all things build up.

Christ completed all of them including the passover, he being the passover lamb once for all times. This is why Paul could say without sinning that he was not under any law on earth, but he allowed himself to be under certain rules and laws because of someone else conscience.

1 Timothy 1:5 but the goal of this command is love, out of a pure heart and a good conscience and unfeigned faith;

Titus 1:15 To the pure, all things are pure; but to those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure; but both their mind and their conscience are defiled.

In other words, Christ is the reality, not a shadow of things or a preview of things to come. In Christ was freedom from the laws of the flesh, none of them had to be carried forth into the new Christian's congregation. The Lords evening meal was never made into a commandment, not even when the apostles meant and gave us a few things we must do, to sustain from eating blood and keeping ourselves from idols.

Acts 15:20 but that we write to them that they abstain from the pollution of idols, from sexual immorality, from what is strangled, and from blood.

Acts 15:29 that you abstain from things sacrificed to idols, from blood, from things strangled, and from sexual immorality, from which if you keep yourselves, it will be well with you. Farewell."

The Lords evening meal was in “remembrance” of what Christ died for, which was to free us from such judgment of the flesh. Remembrance and a commandment are the opposite, one is done for appreciation the other is mandatory and a sin if we don't do. Which would have made Paul himself an apostate in teaching others not to show up if there were fleshly at the Lords evening meal. Being there did not prove them righteous or sacred if they had the wrong attitude.

1Cor.11:16 But if any man seems to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither do God's assemblies.
11:17 But in giving you this command, I don't praise you, that you come together not for the better but for the worse.
11:18 For first of all, when you come together in the assembly, I hear that divisions exist among you, and I partly believe it.
11:19 For there also must be factions among you, that those who are approved may be revealed among you.
11:20 When therefore you assemble yourselves together, it is not the Lord's supper that you eat.

Nor can we find anywhere within the words of Christ or the apostles written instruction about a yearly meeting regarding the Lord's Evening Meal or people traveling to a certain location, or to Jerusalem to meet with the apostles, or even to a certain congregation not even in the book of Revelation's?

The WTS makes mandatory rule setting up dates on days for meeting, service and so on. . . But none of those things makes a person more righteous or scared than what their own conscience bears witness to.

The reality of Christ which so many don't understand is the light, not a picture, a pond on a table, but the reality of what we have inherited now, not future. We are in the light the fulfillment of all of God's promises if we have faith.

Ephesians 5:8 For you were once darkness, but are now light in the Lord. Walk as children of light.

Colossians 1:12 giving thanks to the Father, who made us fit to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light;

2 Timothy 1:10 but has now been revealed by the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who abolished death, and brought life and immortality to light through the Good News.
1 Peter 2:9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God's own possession, that you may proclaim the excellence of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light:

1 John 1:5 This is the message which we have heard from him and announce to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

The greater sin is the lack of love, and humility WTS members show each other on the date of Lords Evening Meal. This is because they have made it a life and death rule, and any that show disrespect for that date is an apostate. However, many over the years since Christ that could not celebrate that remembrance because of exile, prison, and sickness still were involved in sacred service to God in Christ nothing could separate them. None lost that sacred service over not partaking on a certain night.

1 John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God, and knows God.

1 John 4:8 He who doesn't love doesn't know God, for God is love.

1Cor.13:1 If I speak with the languages of men and of angels, but don't have love, I have become sounding brass, or a clanging cymbal.
13:2 If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but don't have love, I am nothing.
13:3 If I dole out all my goods to feed the poor, and if I give my body to be burned, but don't have love, it profits me nothing.

No one that wants to remember Christ can be prevented by man, no one has the right to judge another in this matter, no more so then judging ones faith if they are move to show appreciation on the first full moon closes to the vernal equinox, we do all thing according to our faith. We sin when we do so at the cost of other conscience to have things our way.

I think its wonderful if our brothers were moved by love on that night to truly show the love of Christ contacting each others and partaking, no one could be offend a such a loving and kind gesture.

Love is not about imputing evil to our brothers if ones heart moves them to honor the Father and the Son who can judge such a thing? On the other hand, if a person so wish to remember the Lord on any night not seeing the emblems as an idol, or some special object of venation let them rejoice in our Lord. Freedom came at great cost, let us use that freedom for gains in the Spirit not in the flesh.

James 2:12 So speak, and so do, as men who are to be judged by a law of freedom.

Galatians 5:13 For you, brothers, were called for freedom. Only don't use your freedom for gain to the flesh, but through love be servants to one another.

Your Brother in Christ,
