Since Knowing God Is Eternal Life, Is There No Need To Keep The Passover?

2021-06-22 09:48
Some people claim, “Because Jesus said that knowing God and Christ is eternal life, there is no need to keep the Passover to gain eternal life, but just need to know and believe that Jesus is the Christ.”

John 17:3
Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.

Jesus said that knowing God and Christ is eternal life. However, in addition to this, Jesus also said that we must eat His flesh and drink His blood to gain eternal life.

John 6:53-54
Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you.54Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.

From the above verse, we can see Jesus said that those who do not eat His flesh and drink His blood have no life, that is, eternal life. This means we must eat Jesus’ flesh and drink His blood to gain eternal life.

Despite these words, can we say that we can have eternal life just simply by knowing and believing in Jesus and there is no need to eat and drink His flesh and blood? Those who truly believe in Jesus wouldn’t be able to say so.

Then, why did Jesus say that knowing God is eternal life, and also that those who eat and drink His flesh and blood gain eternal life? At first glance, the two verses appear to be different, but they are essentially the same. In order to know God in the New Testament times, we must keep the new covenant. Because God said that those who keep the new covenant will come to know God fully.

Jer 31:31~34
“The days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when I will make a new covenant
with the people of Israel and with the people of Judah..... “This is the covenant I will make with the people of Israel after that time,” declares the Lord. “I will put my law in their minds and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. No longer will they teach their neighbor, or say to one another, ‘Know the Lord,’ because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest,” declares the Lord.

Referring to the above, who will come to know God completely so that they will no longer say to one another, “Know God”? They are believers who keep the New Covenant in their hearts. Therefore, in order to know God, we must keep the New Covenant.

Then, what is the core of the New Covenant that allows us to know God completely? It is the Passover of the New Covenant. Through the Passover of the New Covenant, we can eat and drink the flesh and blood of Jesus and come to know God and gain eternal life. So Jesus said that knowing God is eternal life, and He also said that we must eat and drink His flesh and blood to gain eternal life. Therefore, we must keep the Passover of the New Covenant in order to fully know God.

In conclusion, to say that there is no need to keep the Passover referring to the words of John 17:3 is a wrong claim that comes from ignorance of not understanding the will of Jesus. The way we can have the wisdom to know the mystery of His will is also to keep the Passover because God allows the wisdom through His blood(Eph 1:7~9).

    There are so many people know Jesus and so many people believe in Jesus as God. If knowing and beliving is just the way for heaven, why Jesus said that (Matthew 7 : 14) But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life and only a few find it.

    God allows those who put the God's Law, New Covenant in their heart as people of God according to Jer. 31:31. It means people of God have to keep the New Covenant, Passover not only to believing in God. Jesus established the new covenant Passover according to the prophecy of Jeremiah, and he told us to drink the wine and to eat the bread of Passover clearly, so that he gives us eternal life by his blood and flesh. Just the faith without deeds is useless. If we believe God, we should follow God's words.
    Bible says Even the demons believe God also (James 2:19), then the demons also will get eternal life and be saved. That dose not make sense.

    "Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead."
