AGE OF SACRIFICE
The first holiday in God's list of 7 is Passover. We must look into the scriptures to discover when the first Passover took place. Since this is the first holiday, is it possible there was a "passover" sometime in the first millennium? The basic meaning of Passover is that God passes over sin that is covered by blood. Remember when Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden of Eden after eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, they realized that they were naked. Once they realized this, they became ashamed and sought to cover themselves. How often do we find ourselves running from God when we know that we have displeased him? It was by the knowledge of good and evil that they obtained, that mankind became aware of just how holy God is and how unholy they were. The result? FEAR. They feared God because of his holiness. The only way for them to cope was to cover themselves and hide. It's no surprise that they used fig leaves. This was easy and required nearly nothing on their part. For an almighty, righteous and just God, this covering could not undo what man had done because God had already given the penalty for sin, which is death. God had warned Adam that in the day that he eats of the forbidden fruit, he would surely die. Blood was required. In order for Adam and Eve to continue living, blood had to be spilt as payment. Here is where we discover the very first passover. “The LORD God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them” (Genesis 3:2). God observed the first Passover when he allowed mankind to live on by performing a sacrifice and covering them with the skins he had made for them.
Where does this holiday fit within Man's Work Week? Within the first day of Man's Work Week or the first 1000 years, God overlooked man's sin by paying for it through sacrifice! You can see here that God's first Holiday matches up precisely with what took place in the first day of Man's Work Week.
Upon entering into the inner court of God's house, we discover the first item of importance, the Brazen Alter. The first ceremonial act was for the High Priest to slay a lamb and collect its blood. After which, the remains of the lamb were burned on this alter. Remember, that God's first Holiday is Passover, which is the covering of blood over sin. The Passover Lamb is slain over the Brazen Alter.
