There is a tremendous parallel between the first Passover in Egypt and the end of days. In reading through and trying to understand the Book of Revelation we discover that there is an obvious Passover imagery connected to it. And even though the fall feasts describe the events that will occur prior to the Messiah’s second coming, there is a Passover fulfillment associated with the last days.
The purpose of plagues that God poured out upon the Egyptians was to establish a name for Himself and to execute judgment against the gods of Egypt. So also in the last days God will pour out plagues of judgment on the earth to execute His judgment upon the gods of this world and to demonstrate as he did in Egypt so powerfully that He alone is God and there is none other.
God will vindicate the holiness of His great name. As the prophet Ezekiel said, “It is not for your sake O House of Israel that I am about to act, but for my holy name which you have profaned among the nations. Then the nations will know that I am the Lord, declares the Lord when I prove myself holy among you in their sight. I will magnify and sanctify myself and make Myself known in the eyes of many nations, then they shall know that I am the Lord.”Every year as we read of the great signs and wonders, the plagues that God poured out on the Egyptians, the parting of the Red Sea, the supernatural provision of the manna and water in the wilderness we are awed by Gods awesome demonstration of power. No other generation in history has ever witnessed the type of supernatural intervention as our ancient ancestors did at that first Passover.
Many believers overlook the fact that when we read about the Messiah’s Passover there were also awesome supernatural signs and wonders that took place on the day Yeshua offered up Himself as the Passover Lamb. We know that Yeshua’s birth into this world and His entire ministry was surrounded with signs and wonders and the supernatural. Why would we not think that His death, the most important fulfillment of prophecy and the ultimate meaning of Passover would not also be surrounded by the supernatural.There are seven incredible events that Jerusalem witnessed during Yeshua’s Passover. This morning I want to speak on five of these supernatural events. Time does not allow me to speak on all seven of them.
- The hidden meaning of Pilate’s Inscription that was nailed to the tree
- The darkness that covered Jerusalem
- The Voice of Yeshua
- The earthquake and the tearing of the Veil
- The opening of the Graves
- The angelic visitation and a second earthquake
- The Resurrection and the significance of First Fruits
