Turn if you will please to Exodus chapter twelve and when you have found it look up here for just a moment, Exodus chapter twelve. This week we are presenting an Easter pageant, the title of that pageant is the title of my message this morning, LAMB OF PROMISE. Mary had a little lamb, his name was. Jesus. we're going to be talking today about that lamb of promise. I was here last night sitting up in the balcony when that presentation was given and when it came to a climax and all of those banners came in telling us what the Lord Jesus means and who the Lord Jesus is my heart began to thunder within me, the tears came down my cheeks, I was so full I tried to shout, I only croaked, it was beautiful and wonderful what we saw and what we felt in our heart and I felt to day that perhaps the message could make even more clear and more plain what we're trying to say when we're talking about our dear Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the lamb of promise.

I'm glad for Easter but listen folks, we celebrate Easter three hundred and sixty five days a year, I mean, he lives within our hearts and every Lord's day that we meet is a day that we commemorate his resurrection. I don't put that down, I glory in it but my friend, we need to understand the meaning of the Passover and see how it relates to those of us who are Christians and I want to show you that we as Christians are told to keep the feast of Passover, it's going to be very interesting.
