The Way and the example set by Yahusha

John 13:15

For I have given you an example (Spiritual Path), that you should do as I have done (offer our own lives as living sacrificial lambs on Passover).

1 Peter 2:21

21 But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it (you will be perfected just like Yahusha was perfected through suffering ultimately perfected on Passover), this is commendable before Yahuah. 21 To this (giving your own lives as living sacrificial lambs on Passover) you were called, because the Messiah suffered (on Passover) for you (and tore the veil giving you access to the Altar of Yahuah), leaving you an example (of what to do as he fulfilled the spiritual meaning of Passover), that you should follow in his steps (and bring your own body as an offering on Passover to the Altar of Yahuah).

What is that example?  There is a very specific “way” that we become members of the family of Yahuah.  It is through “the narrow gate” of Passover and it has never changed.  It has simply been transposed in The Yahushaic Covenant just like the Alter, the Temple, The Law, the priesthood, etc.

It is the spiritual equivalent of the Torah requirements in which you make the transition from a pagan gentile to a member of the commonwealth of Israel.   The requirements for a pagan gentile to become a full member of the commonwealth of Israel was that they had to be circumcised, Mikveh’d, and bring a lamb to sacrifice on the altar.

Nothing changed, you still must be circumcised, Mikveh’d, and bring an offering to Yahuah and sacrifice it on His Altar.  Yahusha elevated the physical requirements to become a member of the family of Yahuah to their true meaning in The Yahushaic Covenant and gave us the example that we are to follow each year on Passover:

Yahusha was mikveh’d on Passover

John 13:2-11 – the Mikveh on the Chagigah in preparation for the beginning of Passover

1 And (the Chagigah) supper (on the eve of the 13th of Abib with leavened bread) being ended (and the 14th of Abib began which is Day of Preparation or Passover Day), …

4 He (Yahusha) arose from supper, and laid aside his garments (took off his clothes and Mikveh’d himself); and (then) took a towel (to dry himself off), and girded himself (wrapped the towel around his waist).  5 After that (he cleansed himself through Mikveh, dried himself off, and wrapped a towel around his waist) he poured water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples' feet (Mikveh his disciples feet they had already been immersed), and to wipe [them] with the towel he was girded with.

Yahusha was circumcised

Yahusha demonstrate a contrite heart and reverent submission to the Will of Yahuah which is true circumcision of heart:

Luke 22:42

…41And He withdrew from them about a stone's throw, and He knelt down and began to pray, 42saying, "Father, if You are willing, remove this cup from Me; yet not My will, but Yours be done."

Yahusha brought an offering on the Altar of Yahuah

Yahusha brought an offering of a lamb on Passover.  He offered his own broken body as a living sacrifice to Yahuah.  This is the way, the example, that Yahusha set that we are to follow each Passover.  We are all to:

1.     Mikveh our bodies ritually clean with living water

2.     Be circumcised of heart or “have a heart for His Laws” and do His will not our own

3.     We are to offer our lives as living sacrifices on the Altar of Yahuah which our hearts

In Ephesians we see Paul use the spiritual truth of Passover, circumcision, and the Mikveh to prepare the bride to meet her husband for the “appointed time” as spotless Passover Lambs.  We see below the 3 requirements again which are Mikveh, sacrifice, circumcision:

Ephesians 5

25 Husbands, love your wives, just as the Messiah loved the body and gave himself up for her (as The Passover Lamb) 26 to make her holy, (ritually) cleansing her by the washing with water through the commandments (Mikveh), 27 and to present her (with a circumcised heart) to himself as a radiant assembly, without spot or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless (as a spotless Passover Lamb of Yahuah).

Romans 12:1

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of Yahuah’ mercy (who offered His first born son Yahusha as a sacrifice on Passover which tore the veil giving us all access to the mercy seat), to offer your (own) bodies (not just Yahusha, we too must follow in his footsteps) as a living sacrifice (living sacrificial lamb on the Altar of Yahuah each Passover as commanded 2 Peter 3:14), holy (set apart and prepared through Mikveh) and pleasing to Yahuah (with a circumcised heart for His Law)—this is your true and proper worship (on Passover as commanded by Yahuah that each man should bring his own Passover lamb to the altar Exodus 12:3).

Hebrews 10:16-29 (The Passover)

16 "This is the covenant (of marriage) that I will make with them: 'After those days,' says Yahuah, 'I will put my laws on their heart, I will also write them on their mind;'" (circumcision of heart) then, 17 "I will remember their sins and their iniquities no more." (Because they will be Spiritually Perfected and purified through Mikveh Zacharaiah 3) 18 Now where there is remission of sin (through Mikveh), there is no more offering for sin.

Note: Our sin is forgiven in covenant with Yahusha the same way it has always been forgiven, through the ritual cleansing of living water or Mikveh.  We look forward to the fulfillment of Mikveh when Yahusha returns:

Zechariah 14:4

 On that day his ( Yahusha the Messiah’s ) feet shall stand on the Mount of Olives

 Zechariah 14: 8

On that day living waters shall flow out from Jerusalem (to Mikveh the land), half of them to the eastern sea and half of them to the western sea. It shall continue in summer as in winter.

Zechariah 13:1

“In that day there shall be a fountain (of living water) opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem (to Mikveh) for sin and for uncleanness.”

19 Having therefore, brothers, (being Mikveh’d clean we have) boldness to enter into the holy place (and offer your life as a living sacrifice on the Altar of Yahuah) by the blood (Sacrifice) of Yahusha (who consumated the marriage covenant), 20 by the way (example) which he dedicated for us (to follow), a new and living (sacrificial) way (a living sacrifice), through the veil, that is to say, (the veil was torn in two by the offering of) his flesh (providing us bold access to the mercy seat of Yahuah);

21 and having a great (High) priest (Yahusha) over the house of Yahuah; 22 let us draw near (to the mercy seat of Yahuah to offer our lives as living sacrifices) with a true (circumcised) heart in fullness of faith (that we have been granted access to the Altar of Yahuah through Yahusha’s sacrifice which tore the veil to the Holy of Holies), having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience (sanctified), and having our body washed with pure water (Spiritual Cleansing through Mikveh), 23 let us hold fast the confession of our hope (that Yahuah will accept our living sacrifice). For he who promised is faithful.

 

Summary of Yahusha’s Example

So Each Passover we are all to follow Yahusha’s example:

1.     Present ourselves to our King properly through Mikveh

2.     Demonstrate a circumcised heart for His Law

3.     Present our own bodies as living sacrificial lambs on His Altar

This is the “Narrow Gate” that leads us out of our life of sin (broken body/leavened bread) and into a new and living way (our new bodies with sin forgiven represented by unleavened bread).  So once we have walked through The Passover Gate we then inter into The Kingdom of Yahuah which is a High Holy Sabbath that begins with The Feast of Unleavened Bread.
