What's so special about Passover?

Pesach (Passover) is so special because it represents a special observation of (1) when God freed the Israelites out of Egypt and (2) Jesus' sacrificial death on the cross, both of which occurred.


What is the meaning of Christ's death on the cross and resurrection?

"The first man Adam said to his wife 'I love her so much, I'll die with her,' but the second man Adam (Jesus) said to his wife (the Church) 'I love her so much, I'll die for her."

"For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16)

Jesus is the Son of God. The Son of God came to earth in the form of a human being named Jesus, whose name means "God is with us." Jesus' purpose on this earth was to someday die on the cross for the sins off all mankind and then rise from the dead signifying His conquering death. God sacrificed His only Son so that all human beings (whom are all born with sinful natures inherited from the first two human beings named Adam and Eve after they sinned by being deceived by Satan) can by forgiven and put right by God by way of repenting (sorrowfully regretting) of their sins and accepting Jesus as the Lord and Savior of their life. A person decides to commit themselves to God and grow to become more and more holy like He is holy. The gift of salvation is a free gift given to us because of God's grace (a freely given, unmerited act of love). God originally created human beings to be perfect and to be in perfect harmony with Him, but when Adam and Eve sinned they broke that bond and became separated from Him by being stained with their sin. Everything that is good comes from God and everything that is bad comes from satan (who was once a beautiful angel named Lucifer that through his pride and wrath rebelled against God). Anyone that goes against God by sinning is really going against themselves and going for satan. Jesus is the key to being put right with God because Jesus is perfect, yet died a criminal's death. Jesus was free from sin, yet He freely gave Himself so that we human beings could be put right by God. When Jesus died on the cross, He took all the punishment that we human beings deserve as sinners, and took it upon Himself. That way, by just repenting of our sins, accepting Jesus into our hearts and putting our faith in Him we can be put right by God and become His Sons and Daughters therefore inheriting His Kingdom Of Heaven and all other blessings and promises. All of this is why it is so special that Jesus died on the cross and then rose from the dead. And His death on the cross occurred on what is now referred to as Good Friday. You have to know that God really does love you and wants you to be with Him. But, if you are a sinner (someone that continues to live in rebellion against God which is like being a criminal in the eyes of God), then you can't be put right with Him, and then your ultimate fate will be a place of eternal punishment commonly referred to as hell. This is the reality. This is the truth. Truth is not based on what you think or feel. It's based on an absolute Truth of God. There is only one Truth and only one Way. There are not many different ways to get to Heaven. There's just Jesus. And there is no nothing. It's real. I know. So, either you can accept it or not. But, if you don't, then you won't be able to say that you didn't know because I told you. God bless you all. Jesus loves you and so do I.

"The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn His face toward you and give you peace." (Numbers 6:24-26)
