The Passover of Christ is once a year

Many people are not familiar with Passover and those who know about call it the Jewish Passover. 3500 years ago Jehovah God commanded the Israelites to keep the Passover by slaughtering a lamb and those who kept it were saved from the destruction.

Jesus Christ came 2,000 years ago and he commanded his disciples to keep the Passover, not killing a lamb but by eating his flesh and his blood for he came as the Passover lamb for the forgiveness of sins.

1Corinthians 5:7 Get rid of the old yeast that you may be a new batch without yeast—as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.

Jesus Christ made this Passover an everlasting covenant for his children; that include us, Christians. Christ kept Passover as an example not only for the disciples but also for us, if we don’t keep the Passover we can’t receive Eternal Life, therefore we can’t go to Heaven.

John 6:53 Jesus said to them, "I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.

Only on the night of the Passover Jesus said this bread is my body and this wine is my blood (Matthew 17:26-28). But when in AD325 by the Council of Nicaea Constantine abolished the Passover, he instituted Communion, but such thing is not in the Bible, is not part of the teachings from Christ but from men. Passover disappeared and that’s when everyone started keeping what they thought it was Passover and keeping it whenever they wanted.

We have 850 denominations and each follows as they please, some keep Communion, others Eucharist or the Holy supper. Some keep it every week, others once a month and others every 6 months. Not only has the name been changed but also a date. God already gave an appointed time to the Passover.

Leviticus 23:4 " 'These are the LORD's appointed feasts, the sacred assemblies you are to proclaim at their appointed times: The LORD's Passover begins at twilight on the fourteenth day of the first month.’ "

By sacred calendar the Passover is to be kept on January 14th at twilight (sunset) not whenever we want for we can’t change Gods commands, it is only once a year. Does it matter the date? YES! GOD SAID! We can’t take his words lightly we have to do as he said.

Exodus 13:10 You must keep this ordinance at the appointed time year after year.

Please consider the Passover, it’s for our salvation. Nowadays we keep the Passover because of our Father Christ Ahnsahnghong, he is the 2nd Coming Christ who brought back the Passover.
