Day 124 2 Chronicles 30:13 And there assembled at Jerusalem much people to keep the feast of unleavened bread in the second month, a very great congregation. 14 And they arose and took away the altars that were in Jerusalem, and all the altars for incense took they away, and cast them into the brook Kidron. 15 Then they killed the Passover on the fourteenth day of the second month: and the priests and the Levites were ashamed, and sanctified themselves, and brought in the burnt offerings into the house of the LORD. 16 And they stood in their place after their manner, according to the law of Moses the man of God: the priests sprinkled the blood, which they received of the hand of the Levites. 17 For there were many in the congregation that were not sanctified: therefore, the Levites had the charge of the killing of the Passovers for everyone that was not clean, to sanctify them unto the LORD. 18 For a multitude of the people, even many of Ephraim, and Manasseh, Issachar, and Zebulun, had not cleansed themselves, yet did they eat the Passover otherwise than it was written. But Hezekiah prayed for them, saying, The good LORD pardon everyone 19 That prepares his heart to seek God, the LORD God of his fathers, though he be not cleansed according to the purification of the sanctuary. 20 And the LORD hearkened to Hezekiah, and healed the people. Have you done something right, yet at the same time it wasn’t right because it wasn’t done in the correct way? People believe that as long as the work is done, it doesn’t matter how it’s done. You have heard the saying: there’s a right way and wrong way for everything. Hezekiah ordered the priests and Levites to prepare for the Passover in the second month according to the Law of Moses which stated that if the people weren’t cleansed in the first month, they were to celebrate it in the second month. Numbers 9:10 Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, If any man of you or of your posterity shall be unclean by reason of a dead body, or be in a journey afar off, yet he shall keep the Passover unto the LORD. 11 The fourteenth day of the second month at even they shall keep it, and eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. When King Hezekiah saw the people had not cleansed themselves for the Passover, he prayed to God for them and God healed them. As Christians, you partake in the Lord’s Supper, instituted by Jesus on the night of Passover when the Sanhedrin arrested Him. If you don’t prepare your heart, God will judge you. 1 Corinthians 11:27 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. 28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. 29 For he who eats and drinks unworthily, eats and drinks damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. 30 For this cause, many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep. 31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged. As Passover is a solemn celebration of remembrance of what God did for Israel in bringing them out of slavery, so too The Lord’s Supper is a celebration of what Jesus did for you on the cross. You are to examine yourself, pray, before you partake so you do not partake carelessly without thought. When you do, God will bless you. Let’s pray: Father, I am a sinner. Cleanse my heart and mind so I can commune with You and enjoy the blessings of Your salvation. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
