Passover California Mojave DesertPassover is celebrated by God’s chosen people, the Jews, all over the world. It is a reminder to the Jews how God freed them from slavery in Egypt. But, many say there is something missing in their Passover experience. In California, a group of Jews observed Passover in the wilderness of the Mojave Desert. These Jews, camping in tents in California, are trying to discover the full experience of the Passover.

Jewish songs are sung around a campfire to the beat of drums and playing guitars. Prayers are sent to God and the lessons of Passover are taught and thought about. These Jews believe it is a time for them to gather like the tribes of Israel did after they crossed the Red Sea. Golden, the leader of this Passover observance, said this special Passover observance allows them to build relationships with each other and with God. Golden said that they also look inside of themselves and relate to the Earth. Normally the Passover is observed by having a big meal, called a Seder. The story of Passover is told during the meal.

These Jews in the California desert wilderness gather together as they read the Torah, Scriptures. Some of the Jews participating in this Passover experience in the California desert say they are searching for a spiritual connection to Judaism and God.

Sadly, many Jewish people have missed the most important thing about the Passover. It is clearly stated in Exodus 12:21-28 what they were to do to protect themselves from the destroyer. They were told to put blood on the top lintel and on the two side posts of the entrance door to their homes. This saved anyone inside the house from dying when the destroyer came in the night. Those families who obeyed God’s commands about the Passover were spared the grief of losing their first born child. But, those, like Pharaoh of Egypt, who did not believe in the power of the sacrificial blood lost their first born.

The most important lesson for every Jew and Gentile to learn about the Passover is what the sacrificial blood represented. It represented how Jesus, like a lamb without blemish, willingly sacrificed Himself on the cross for all mankind. His life-blood flowed out to give eternal life to spiritually dead sinners. His shed blood is pure and powerful enough to save every sinner in the world from spiritual death in Hell and the Lake of fire. But, sadly, when many people die physically they will also be dead spiritually. Only those who have the blood of Jesus applied to their sin will escape spiritual death in the Lake of Fire. Jesus is the Passover Lamb who shed His blood to wash away all of our sins. Simply apply the blood of Jesus by repenting of your sins and believe on the sacrificial work that Jesus completed for you when He went to the cross. If you do this, you will have eternal life instead of everlasting death in the Lake of Fire. Jesus wants to be the Passover Lamb to save your soul!

Isaiah 53:6-7 “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD [God the Father] hath laid on him [Jesus] the iniquity of us all. 7 He [Jesus] was oppressed, and he [Jesus] was afflicted, yet he [Jesus] opened not his mouth: he [Jesus] is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he [Jesus] openeth not his mouth.”
Revelation 1:5 “And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,”
1 Corinthians 5:7-8 “Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: 8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.”
