Now many people know that the Passover is the feast of God which allows us eternal life. However, some people consider those who keep the Passover as legalists or even heretics. How pathetic! Why do some realize the fact that the Passover should be observed while others do not although they all read the same Bible? Of course, we can find the answer in the Bible.
He replied, “The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them… This is why I speak to them in parables: “Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand. (Matthew 13:11-13)
It means that there are people who are allowed to understand the secrets of the kingdom of heaven while there are also those who are not allowed to. The Passover is a secret of the kingdom of heaven which contains the blessings of the forgiveness of sins and everlasting life. Therefore, not everyone can understand the Passover. What’s the difference between those who understand the Passover and those who don’t?
Then I saw in the right hand of him who sat on the throne a scroll [the Scriptures] with writing on both sides and sealed with seven seals. And I saw a mighty angel proclaiming in a loud voice, “Who is worthy to break the seals and open the scroll?” But no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth could open the scroll or even look inside it. I wept and wept because no one was found who was worthy to open the scroll or look inside. (Revelation 5:1-4)
The Apostle John wept much on the island of Patmos when he heard the words of God would be sealed with seven seals and no one could open the scroll or even look inside it. It is natural that John could not help but cry. Since then, people could not understand the secrets of the kingdom of heaven although they see and read the Bible. It means that people were not able to know the Passover. Fortunately, however, the Bible would not be sealed for good.
Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He [The Root of David] is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.” Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing in the center of the throne, encircled by the four living creatures and the elders. (Revelation 5:5-6)
It’s written that the scroll would be opened by a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, or Jesus who is the Root of David. Therefore, those who receive the Second Coming Jesus can know the secret of the kingdom of heaven or the Passover. In other words, those who keep the Passover have received the Second Coming Jesus.
Do you know who keeps the Passover today? Only the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) keeps the Passover in the world as did Jesus and the apostles 2,000 years ago. This means that the Second Coming Jesus has already come to this church. Who is the Second Coming Jesus? We cannot realize the true meaning of the Passover until we receive him. The Passover is the feast which Jesus desired to keep and the secret of the kingdom of heaven for which the Apostle John cried bitterly with the concern that it would not be observed.
