OUR PASSOVER SEDER SERVICE
The order of service
The word Seder means "Order", as in order of the service.
Exod.12:  And it shall come to pass, when ye be come to the land which Yehovah will give you, according as he hath promised, that ye shall keep this service.
 And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say unto you, What mean ye by this service?
HAGGADAH means "the Telling"
HAGGADAH is the name of the many versions of books that have been written which tell of the Passover story through the Seder dinner.
SHULCHAN ORECH (Set table)
A little leaven, a little sin leaveneth the whole lump!
The Matzah, The Unleavened bread - humble bread, not puffed up (leaven - symbolic of sin).
The Roasted Lamb is a reminder of the first Passover sacrifice and the sacrifice of Yeshua, the Lamb of God
Bitter Herbs seems to recall the bitterness of slavery.
Time to eat and talk about the Passover
TELLING THE PASSOVER STORY
I will execute judgment against all the gods of Egypt, I am Yehovah
Exod.12  For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am Yehovah.
Jer.43  And I will kindle a fire in the houses of the gods of Egypt; and he shall burn them, and carry them away captives: and he shall array himself with the land of Egypt, as a shepherd putteth on his garment; and he shall go forth from thence in peace.
Reading: Exod. 1 to 14
We shall talk about the 10 plagues:
The ten plagues in Egypt
Water to Blood
Death of the Firstborn
The ten murmurings, complains, disputings of Israel (done many times)
Num.14 [22 ] Because all those men which have seen my glory, and my miracles, which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have tempted me now these ten times, and have not hearkened to my voice;
[23 ] Surely they shall not see the land which I sware unto their fathers, neither shall any of them that provoked me see it:
Does this sound like you may have done these things below a time or two as the Israelites have done?
against God, many times
against Yehovah, many times
against My commandments, many times
against "the land" which Yehovah gave them ( the building God has given us to meet in )
against the manna , the bread from heaven which God gave them. (they wanted flesh to eat )
against the wife of Moses ( the minister's wife )
against Moses, many times ( the minister Yehovah has put over you )
complained that there was no water in the wilderness
against the people who God put over them, many times ( against people Yehovah brings to our congregation )
 Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, and in the seventh day shall be a feast to Yehovah.
 Unleavened bread shall be eaten seven days; and there shall no leavened bread be seen with thee, neither shall there be leaven seen with thee in all thy quarters.
 And thou shalt shew thy son in that day, saying, This is done because of that which Yehovah did unto me when I came forth out of Egypt.
 And it shall be when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying, What is this? that thou shalt say unto him, By strength of hand Yehovah brought us out from Egypt, from the house of bondage:
 And it came to pass, when Pharaoh would hardly let us go, that Yehovah slew all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both the firstborn of man, and the firstborn of beast: therefore I sacrifice to Yehovah all that openeth the matrix, being males; but all the firstborn of my children I redeem.
 And it shall be for a token upon thine hand, and for frontlets between thine eyes: for by strength of hand Yehovah brought us forth out of Egypt.
 And it came to pass, when Pharaoh had let the people go, that God led them not through the way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for God said, Lest peradventure the people repent when they see war, and they return to Egypt:
 But God led the people about, through the way of the wilderness of the Red sea: and the children of Israel went up harnessed out of the land of Egypt.
 And when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying, What mean the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which Yehovah our God hath commanded you?
 Then thou shalt say unto thy son, We were Pharaoh's bondmen in Egypt; and Yehovah brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand:
 And Yehovah shewed signs and wonders, great and sore, upon Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his household, before our eyes:
 And he brought us out from thence, that he might bring us in, to give us the land which he sware unto our fathers.
 And Yehovah commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear Yehovah our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day.
 And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before Yehovah our God, as he hath commanded us.
 And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say unto you, What mean ye by this service?
 That ye shall say, It is the sacrifice of Yehovah's passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he smote the Egyptians, and delivered our houses. And the people bowed the head and worshipped.
KIDDUSH - Sanctification: Only ONE Cup - in HIS BLOOD
Only One Body
Matt. 26  And as they were eating, Yeshua took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.
 And he took "the cup", and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;
 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom.
Mark 14:  And as they did eat, Yeshua took bread, and blessed, and brake it, and gave to them, and said, Take, eat: this is my body.
 And he took "the cup", and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them: and they all drank of it.
 And he said unto them, This is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many.
 Verily I say unto you, I will drink no more of the fruit of the vine, until that day that I drink it new in the kingdom of God.
 And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.
Luke 22  And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer:
 For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God.
 And he took "the cup", and gave thanks, and said, Take this, and divide it among yourselves:
 For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the kingdom of God shall come.
 And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me.
 Likewise also "the cup" after supper, saying, "This cup" is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you.
1 Cor. 10  "The cup" of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Messiah?
1 Cor. 11
 Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink "this cup" of Yeshua, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of Yeshua.
 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of "that cup".
 For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning Yeshua's body.
 For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep.
 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
 But when we are judged, we are chastened of Yeshua, that we should not be condemned with the world.
Minister: For I have received of Yeshua that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Yeshua the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:
And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.
Minister: Take eat!
After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.
Minister: Take drink,
For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew Yeshua's death till he come.
Minister: Sh'ma – Hear!
The Shema - Israel's watch words for all time!
Minister: Sh'ma Yisrael: Yehovah Eloheinu, Yehovah Echad. Baruch shem k'vod malchuto l'olam vaed.
יִשְׂרָאֵל: יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ, יְהוָה אֶחָד שְׁמַע
** Congregation reading: Hear, Israel, Yehovah is our God, Yehovah is One.
 Now these
are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments, which the Yehovah your
God commanded to teach you, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go to
 That thou mightest fear the Yehovah thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son's son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged.
 Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the Yehovah God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and honey.
 Hear, O Israel: Yehovah is our God – Yehovah is one:
 And thou shalt love the Yehovah thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
 And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.

 Yehovah lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
