April 12: Passover

– The Cup of Salvation

Yeshua knew this would be His last Passover celebration with His disciples.  He knew that within hours He would be crucified at the same time as the priests would be sacrificing the other lambs.  He had so much to tell His friends.

Like they had done all their lives, they sang Psalms 113-118.  The cup after dinner is called The Cup of Redemption, and they read:

Psalm 116:12-13

What shall I render to the Lord
for all His benefits toward me?

I will take up the cup of salvation, 
and call upon the name of the Lord.

 In Hebrew there is only one cup but many salvations. Over this cup Yeshua said:

Luke 22:20

Likewise He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is shed for you.

Yeshua was about to sacrifice His life so that all who believe in Him have the privilege to become children of God and be saved continuously from their sin, suffering and sickness.

 

PRAY ALL PEOPLE WILL TAKE AND DRINK FROM YESHUA’S CUP OF REDEMPTION AND SALVATION.
