While we solemnly mourn over Jesus agonizing crucifixion this Easter, and rejoice over our salvation that he provided by providing atonement for our sins and making a path of salvation for us, remember that the Jews are celebrating Passover at the same time (during the 8 days of April 8th through April 16th).
It is no coincidence that Passover for the Jews falls on Easter for the Christians; because Jesus is our passover lamb, the final sacrifice for our sins (meaning there is no reason for further sacrifices on the altar). Nevertheless ultra-orthodox-Jews who still have not accepted the Messiah will celebrate passover. The reason it is of no coincidence is because Father God planned that Jesus ministry would end at the exact moment (on the calendar) that Exodus occurred. After the 10 plagues of Egypt, when Pharoah finally gave in, the children of Israel escaped bondage. However, on the night that the Angel of Death passed over (this was the 10th plague, death of firstborn Children Exodus 11:1), that was the true Jewish first passover. The children were told by Moses to put the lambs blood on their doorposts and that the death angel would pass over. And so this affliction only killed the Egyptian babies, but not the Hebrew babies. God knows this date was to be between April 8th and April 16th on our calendar. Thats why he sent his son to die for us on the same date, because he is our passover lamb.
So, I've been researching Exodus I, II, and what I call III (the final exodus, or the rapture), and piecing together fascinating connections between the three. When something repeats in the bible, its called a "Type". Meaning that what was before will be again. I believe the Rapture will be a "Type" of Exodus. Therefore I am creating a wiki page with the connections that I show between this current Passover and the historic two exodus'.
