The only church that keeps the New Covenant Passover

The Korea Times - - RELIGION - Jin­hai@ktimes.com

The Passover is the feast that con­tains the mean­ing, “Dis­as­ters pass over.” It falls in March or April by the so­lar cal­en­dar. It is orig­i­nated from the Ex­o­dus 3,500 years ago when the Is­raelites kept the Passover ac­cord­ing to the word of LORD. As a re­sult, they were pro­tected from the great plague of killing the first­born and re­leased from slav­ery in an­cient Egypt (Ex­o­dus 12).

Fol­low­ing the Bi­ble, the Church of God ob­serves the Passover of the new covenant holy ev­ery year. As Christ washed the feet of his dis­ci­ples be­fore the Passover, the church holds a foot-wash­ing cer­e­mony be­fore the Holy Sup­per of the Passover.

The Church of God is the only church nowa­days that keeps the Passover of the new covenant ac­cord­ing to the Bi­ble. The church ob­serves the seven feasts in three times an­nu­ally: The Passover, the Feast of Un­leav­ened Bread, the Res­ur­rec­tion Day, the Pen­te­cost, the Feast of Trum­pets, the Day of Atone­ment, and Feast of Taber­na­cles. Each feast con­tains the bless­ings of God such as eter­nal life, for­give­ness of sins, res­ur­rec­tion, and the Holy Spirit.

Last April, the Churches of God in 175 coun­tries cel­e­brated the Passover. In Septem­ber and Oc­to­ber, they have the au­tumn feasts: the Feast of Trum­pets, the Day of Atone­ment, and Feast of Taber­na­cles.

“The Passover is God’s pre­cious gift to mankind. We wish all peo­ple to keep the Passover and re­ceive the bless­ings from God the Fa­ther and God the Mother,” said Gen­eral Pas­tor Kim Joo-cheol.

The mem­bers in New York are at the Lin­coln Cen­ter for the Sa­cred Assem­bly of the Passover.
