easter vs passover (general)

Szuch77:

I am not reading from these Jeremish passages that Christians are somehow bound by the Old Testament Law which was given to the Jews; and was for the Jews. Not the Messianic Jews mind you. But for the Jews. Those who remain supernaturally blinded. Messianic Jews prefer to keep their Jewish customs - like their Saturday Sabbath. I see no problem with that. Just as Paul saw no problem with that.

Jesus's mission was first and foremost to the "lost sheep of Israel". It is first necessary that Israel recognize their Messiah before this covenent Jeremish speaks of with them occurs. It is only necessary that one party agrees to a "Covenant". But you cannot have a "Covenant" until at the very least both parties recognize each other. The Jews do not currently recognize the "Covenant-giver" Yeshua... So as of now, Messianic Jews and Christians are under the "New Covenant", the New Testament Laws...which are written in the hearts of those who love the Lord.

Paul tells us that the Jews are supernaturally blinded. Once the Lord lifts this "blindness" the Jews will cry out; "Baruch haba b'Shem Adonai".

Again you have instroduced another passage meant for the Jews. The discussion really is that Christians are not bound by Jewish holidays (Passover, Sabbat, etc).

"I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah"

In the verses below that you pointed out, I think Jeremiah is speaking of the coming conversion of the Jews which will be near the time of the Second Coming. Which will not happen until a great portion of the Jews are crying out to Jesus/Yeshua; "Baruch haba b'Shem Adonai". Psalm 118:26 - Blessed be he that cometh in the name of the LORD: we have blessed you out of the house of the LORD. Israel is mostly secular today. But that will change drastically at the time of the Second Coming. Messianic Jewish numbers will increase amazingly --and they will assist the Lord in converting the Jews. 144,000.

Jeremiah 31 31-34:
31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: 32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: 33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. 34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
