Nearly 4000 years ago, prophecy was partially fulfilled from the book of Exodus.
God Himself performed a miracle in the land of Egypt, freeing the children of Israel from 430 years of slavery.
He caused 10 plagues to fall on the land of Egypt and to proclaim that God is the only God over all the gods of Egypt.
10 plagues fell on the land of Egypt, but none fell on the children of Israel.
The greatest miracle happened in the spring, and fell on the 14th day of Aviv.
A commandment is given by the Lord. You are to celebrate each year, as a permanent ordinance for all eternity.
A perfect lamb or goat one year old, without spot, wrinkle, or blemish, is to be killed at twilight on the 14th day of Aviv.
The lamb or goat is to be roasted, and eaten with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. Not one bone is to be broken.
Take the blood and put it on the door post of each house of the children of Israel, on the lintel and on the two sides of the door.
I will pass over each house that has the blood on the door post.
If I see no blood on the door post, I will take the life of the first born of man and cattle.
There is a wailing in the land of Egypt; Pharaoh’s first born and his servants have been taken.
The mixed multitude hurriedly leave Egypt, Israel and God fearing Egyptians obey the Lord.
As they exit Egypt, the only possessions they take are their animals, the clothes on their backs,valuables given to them by the Egyptians, and their kneading bowls with unleavened bread.
God instructs Israel to celebrate two other Holy Days in the Spring, with Passover, to show His Plan of Salvation for all the nations.
The 15th day of Aviv, called Unleavened Bread, you are to eat only bread with no leaven for 7 days.
The 17th day of Aviv, called First Fruits, you shall bring the first sheaf of the barley harvest to be waved before the Lord.
Passover, Unleavened Bread and First Fruits were to be fulfilled at the first coming of Messiah.
1230 years after the Exodus, Jesus fulfilled the 3 Holy Days in fulfillment of the Bible.
Jesus, the Lamb of God, has His last Passover meal with His disciples at twilight of the 14th of Aviv, telling them what was going to happen to Him over the next 3 days.
Later that night, He was arrested, mocked, beaten, spit upon, and sentenced to death for being the Son of God – committing no sin.
His sentence of death was the Roman cross. This instrument of His death was foretold by the door post of Exodus – the lintel being the top of the door post and the two sides of the door . Together, they create the sign of the cross.
He was bloodied, nailed in the hands and feet, and pierced in His side by a spear, but not one bone in His body was broken.
Jesus died at the exact time the Passover lamb was sacrificed in the Temple – at the 9th hour.
He was quickly taken off the cross, buried in a rich man’s tomb, just hours before the sun set, on the 14th of Aviv.
His body was covered with stripes. His hands and feet, as well as His side, were pierced. He died perfect and sinless. This fulfillment happened on the 15th of Aviv – Unleavened Bread.
Jesus rose from the dead just as the sun had set, before the beginning of the 17th of Aviv, First Fruits.
He fulfilled this day by rising from the grave and conquering sin and death. Jesus would become the first of many to be resurrected from the dead.
The resurrection of Jesus fulfilled the Holy Day of First Fruits.
He completed the Plan of Salvation by being the Lamb of God, perfect and spotless, who shed His blood for the forgiveness of sins.
Today, we have total forgiveness of our sins, which leads to the receiving of eternal life with Jesus.
This is the miracle that happened in the Spring!
