first day of the Feast of the Unleavened Bread the disciples came to
Jesus, saying to Him, "Where do You want us to prepare for You
to eat the Passover?"
26:18. And He said, "Go into the
city to a certain man, and say to him, 'The Teacher says, "My
time is at hand; I will keep the Passover at your house with My

directed them; and they prepared the Passover.
Exodus 12:14-15, 3, 6
this day shall be to you a memorial; and you shall keep it as a feast
to the LORD throughout your generations. You shall keep it as a feast
by an everlasting ordinance.
12:15. 'Seven days you shall
eat unleavened bread. On the first day you shall
remove leaven from your houses. For whoever eats leavened bread from
the first day until the seventh day, that person shall be cut off
12:3. "Speak to all the congregation of
Israel, saying: 'On the tenth day of this month every man shall take
for himself a lamb, according to the house of
his father, a lamb for a household.
12:6. 'Now you shall
keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month. Then the whole
assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill
it at twilight.

In the New Testament, Passover was also
signified by 2 things as
- Eating unleavened bread.
- Killing a lamb of Passover.

12:50. Thus all the children of Israel did; as the
LORD commanded Moses and Aaron, so they did.

pass, on that very same day, that the LORD brought the
children of Israel out of the land of Egypt according to

from the world with all its influences

Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the
world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of
the world makes himself an enemy of God.

Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said, "Go,
sacrifice to your God in the land."
And Moses said, "It is not right to do so, for we would be
sacrificing the abomination of the Egyptians to the LORD our God. If
we sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians before their eyes,
then will they not stone us?
Practices of ministry
under the influence of the world
are as follows:
- It is allowed to minister, but one
may not be faithful.
Example: in 1 year, it
is enough to minister once, or twice (on Christmas or
- Ministering, but being
obstructed easily by disease, weather, etc.
consequence: one still becomes same with the
world that will be perished forever although s/he ministers.

- Because the one holds to the

verse), while the others hold to 'the

philosophy, knowledge, joke, etc).
- Colossian 2:18
Let no one cheat you of your reward, taking delight in false
humility and worship of angels, intruding into those things which
he has not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,
keeping fleshly mind= worshiping
just to look for physical blessing (money, position, etc).
- They do not want to be united=
will never experience hen's wings= do not accept preservation
and protection from God.
For servant of God: he
will not receive the revelation of the Word.
congregation: they can not understand the
revelation of the Word.
- Being left
alone= God is not with them,

go into the persecution of antichrist.

And they were driven out from Pharaoh's presence.

whole family may not be saved.
STRUGGLE for our
marriage and family!
At this time, if only
wife/husband/son/daughter ministers, we
have to struggle and ask God that the whole
family can be saved.
Do we have the heart if someday one is
lifted up and the others are left
- Allowing all Israel's family to
worship, but flocks and herds must be kept
back= worship without any
Then Pharaoh called to Moses and said, "Go, serve the LORD;
only let your flocks and your herds be kept back.
Let your little ones also go with you."
herds= animal for sacrifice.
The RIGHT MINISTRY
IS ministry which is signified by

present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God,
which is your reasonable service.
The peak of our
offering/sacrifice is we can present living sacrifice, holy and
acceptable to God.

tithes and special offering.
keep sin, how can we present our whole life?

for the ministry of gentiles by being
willing to be hung, dead three days
and be raised.
Do not play in worship!
ministry is as valuable as the
sacrifice of Christ.
