The textbook interpretation of Passover will simply mean for something to be skipped. However, in biblical context, it carries a much mysterious connotation. Passover first took place in the Old Testament, specifically to bring freedom to the Israelites, who had been held captive for generations by the Egyptians (Exodus 12:27).

The key element of Passover then, and even now is the sacrifice of blood.” In the Old Testament, God demanded all Israelites to slaughter lambs, thereafter smear the lintel of their house with the blood. God had already avenged the Israelites of their Egyptian lords with a series of misfortunes, but the final blow was to kill every firstborn, even up to animals. The blood on the lintel is to enable the angels to Passover the homes of all Israelites during the execution in the homes of the Egyptians. 

It was a monumental and historic victory for God, and the Israelites. God would not have it forgotten or swept under, so He instructed them to observe it as an ordinance and memorial service, to teach the unborn its significance to the freedom they enjoy (Exodus 12:24-27; 2Kings 23:21).

Seeing that God loves Nigeria so much, and highly favours His servant, He instituted Passover in the tabernacle to release mankind from enslavement. It is called Jesus Passover because His blood is our sacrifice. The shortcoming of the blood used in the Old Testament is that the potency lasts just for a while. The blood of Jesus, however, is everlasting, all-powerful, as it oozes royal splendour and devastating superiority over anything else on earth.

Our Passover is the celebration of the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ, the remembrance of His death and resurrection at Calvary. God so loved mankind that He gave us His Son, and Jesus so cherished us that He bled for us at Calvary. Halleluyah!

Since its inception in 1996, Jesus feast of Passover has brought freedom and hope to multitudes worldwide. Not through the blood of animals, but through the blood of our Saviour. Three times a year, we converge for 21 days to fast, pray, praise and celebrate the One Who redeemed us from sin and gave us victory over our taskmasters. It is a time of great reflection, of the suffering of our Lord at Calvary, but more importantly, of the victory His death bought for us and the joy of commemorating His bravery, love and compassion over mankind.

Your days of grief are over if you will partake in His Passover, to save you from sin and effect a permanent and supernatural turnaround upon your life. We have victory every day, for the blood of Jesus is our Passover!

This 21-day life-changing programme will include: 14 days yoke breaking prayer vigils from December 6 to19, at 12:00 am. And from December 20 to 25, there will be a six-day carnival of praise and worship from 5 pm to 8 pm, while perfection service holds on December 26, at 7 am.

Venue: Hand of Fire City, Olowo Ina Bus Stop, Ikotun/Igando Road, Lagos.
