Passover Perspectives Exodus 12: A New Beginning
The Beginning of months Exodus 12:2 “This month shall be unto you the beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you.”
“Israel is now given a new Calendar thus making the break with Egypt complete.” (Soncino) The fulfillment of the Passover marks the time when our true life begins and when the hope of deliverance for all the world is born.
Reset your calendar.
Reset your perspective.
Realize this new beginning!
Do not think of time of life in the same way as the world.
Bondage is a memory.
Put the past in the past.
The hour of freedom and deliverance is the greater reality.
Freedom and redemption becomes our beginning and our priority.
“For the love of Christ controls us,
having concluded this, that one died for all, therefore all died;
And he died for all, that they who live should no longer live for themselves,
but for him who died and rose again on their behalf.
Therefore from now on we recognize no man according to the flesh;
even though we have known Christ according to the flesh,
yet now we know him thus no longer.
Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature;
the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.”
2 Corinthians 5:14-17
