As you know, God alone has eternal life.

God, the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone is immortal (1 Timothy 6:15-16)

Therefore, only God can give us eternal life. The promise of eternal life God gave us is contained in the Passover.

Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man [Jesus] and drink his [Jesus’] blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink…” (John 6:53-55)

Jesus promised that the bread of was His flesh and that the wine of the Passover was His blood.

So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover…. While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this [the Passover bread] is my body.” Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. This [The Passover wine] is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. (Matthew 26:19-28)

Those who observe the Passover are surely supposed to receive the blessing of eternal life according to the words of Jesus: “Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life.” On the contrary, since Jesus said: “Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you,” those who do not keep the Passover cannot receive eternal life. The World Mission Society Church of God believes in the promise of eternal life Jesus promised us and celebrates the Passover of the New Covenant as a precious truth.
