Being Freed From Sin Through the Passover
In order to go back to the kingdom of heaven, lost because of our sins, we must first be forgiven for our sins. The Passover is the truth of God, through which we can have the forgiveness of our sins and can enter the kingdom of heaven.
Luke 4: 17-21 『The scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him..."He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind..."... and he began by saying to them, "Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing."』
Some may ask who men are captive to. Jesus freed His people from their sins and from the devil's power through His precious blood, the blood of the Passover Lamb.
Rom 6:22 『But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves to God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life.』
The history of the Israelites—who entered the desert after being emancipated from Egypt, through the blood of the Passover lamb—reveals that in the New Testament times, the people who eat the flesh of Jesus, the Passover lamb, and drink His blood will enter the spiritual desert, after being freed from their sins (1 Cor. 10:1-12).
