Passover is Approaching

A Shmura Matzo (Unleavened Bread is Used for Passover) 


After sunset Friday, April 18th, those who still believe what the old WCG and the Bible taught will be observing Passover.

While most in the Catholic and Protestant world think that Passover is “Jewish”, the truth is that Passover was most definitely observed by early Christians.

Faithful Christians, such as Polycratesin the late 2nd century wrote that he and the other early church leaders (like the Apostles Philip and John, and their successors like Polycarp, Thraseas, Sagaris, Papirius, Melito) all kept Passover, and Polycrates said when they kept it:

All these observed the fourteenth day of the passover according to the Gospel, deviating in no respect, but following the rule of faith. And I also, Polycrates, the least of you all, do according to the tradition of my relatives, some of whom I have closely followed. For seven of my relatives were bishops; and I am the eighth. And my relatives always observed the day when the people put away the leaven (Eusebius. Church History, Book V, Chapter 24).

And even heretical “professing Christians” kept it (though they changed the date of it).

Passover actually was part of “the faith once for all delivered unto the saints” (Jude 3).

If you consider yourself a Christian, you may wish to look into this matter further, pray about it, and check out what your Bible and early Christians taught about it.
