 Imagine a heroic knight in shining armor in mortal combat with a fiery Dragon. This undefeated Ancient Serpent has imprisoned a maiden within his castle of doom. Day after day the battle raged. The Knight's gleaming sword crashed against the iron scales of the Adversary. The Dragon's fiery breath scorched the shield of the Faithful Knight. His sword parried the iron claws and valiantly deflected every advance of the demonic host, till the cloak of dusk hastened, there is wisdom in the shelter of retreat. At evening spells transformed the Dragon’s vestige to a dark and waxen armored knight with a face resembling flickering embers. The serpentine knight spoke seductive words of love as the fearful maiden served his nightly banquet feast. Then woeful shadows escorted the maiden to her tower of despair. Only, to be awakened as ascending fingers of a new day lightly tapped upon the stains of glass in her window pane. 
  The pure sunlit knight mightily advanced toward the Ancient Serpent's stronghold. Sulfur and smoke billowed as fiery words threatened to devour the Dawn. The fearsome Dragon charged the peacefully approaching Son of Faithfulness. Sword and shield flashed in the midst of fire and brimstone of the iron clawed Dragon. Moments of hope seemed to whisper in the breeze and breach the maiden's towering doubt. The heavens darkened, the earth trembled, and rend open it’s mouth as to cry. In shocking waves of starry collissions a reverberating shout, "VICTORY!" As the Dragon's iron claws shattered the shield and pierced the heart of the valiant Knight of light. The Dragon looked upon the fallen Knight, stained crimson and laughed with mocking derision. Boastfully, the Dragon commanded, " Come my Bride, maiden unloved, and look upon your adversary!" Time seemed to stand still and the eclipsing sun refused to set. The shining Knight lay silent as the maiden approached. Her trembling finger touched the pool of blood pouring from the shimmering armor. Concealed teardrops joined the Lifeblood sprinkled upon the shield of Faith. The Dragon knelt over the silent Knight to sniff for the aroma of death. Swiftly, a glistening sword penetrated between the iron scales, piercing the abyss of the Dragon's heart. In screams of rage and blasts of flames, the Dragon fell back, lifeless upon the battle plane. The maiden's fear turned to joy as a Peaceful voice said, "I am not dead, my heart cries Victory in True Love."

The moral of the story is, 
"True Love never Dies; it only tests the Heart of Faithfulness!"

The Passover sacrificial Lamb may appear unrelated to a story of a knight in shining armor battling the Dragon. Parables and prophetic visions speak through symbolic terms and create powerful imagery. Stories may motivate emotional involvement that speaks truth to the heart through the union of spiritual  empathetic harmony. Separating fact from symbolic representations in metaphors or culturally figurative language requires discerning spiritual truth from careful examination of Scriptures.

 The Bible story portrays the, "Blood of the Lamb" as a powerful mystery that reveals Salvation for all mankind. Spiritual Truth comes to light through the Life, Death, and Resurrection of Messiah Yeshua the Lamb of Yehawah Eloheyem.

Sacrificial Lamb

   Leviticus 23:5-6; 7-8; Ex 12:5; The Passover  Lamb must be a Pure Sacrificial offering, without spot or blemish. 
John 1:29; 33-34; Messiah Yeshua's sinless Sacrifice became the Perfect Passover Lamb and UnLeavened Bread of Life.

During UnLeavened Bread, on the day after the weekly Sabbath, there will be a Wave Sheaf presented before Yehawah Eloheyem as an offering of First Fruit. The Wave Sheaf look forward to Yeshua ascending to the Heavenly Father after His resurrection from the tomb. Messiah Yeshua's disciples followed the  "Lamb of Yehawah" by making their own lives a sacrifice of obedience. Yehawah's Faithful worshipers hope to be chosen to partake in the, "First Fruits" of the resurrection of the righteous at Messiah Yeshua's return.
(Ex 23:19; 34:26; Ro 11:16; 26-27; 31-32; 8:16-17; 18-19; 20-21; 22-23; 1 Cor 15:20-21; 22-23; 24-25; 26-27; 28; Jas 1:12; 18; 22; 25; Rev 14:4; 5; ) 

Day One of Eternity Restoration

  John 20:1; 17; On the third day after His Passover death; Messiah Yeshua arose from the tomb before sunset on His Seventh day Sabbath. After sunset as the evening of the first day of the week began, Yeshua appeared to Mary Magdalene.  Yeshua said,  He would soon ascend to Eloheyem the Father. As the first day of the week began to dawn; Messiah the Holy One ascended into heaven as the wave sheaf offering that is presented before the Father on the day after the weekly Sabbath.
(Jn 20:18; 19; 20-21; 22-23; ) 

Counting the Sabbaths of the Covenant

   Hebrews 9:18; 19; 20-21; 22; Passover began Yehawah's Redemption of Israel.  The work of Salvation continues on from "Wave Sheaf"  by counting 7 Sabbaths +1 to reach the 50th day that commemorates Pentecost. At mount Sinai on Pentecost; Moses offered sacrificial blood to establish the Covenant of ReNewal through Yehawah's Forgiveness of Sins. Israel entered into Yehawah's Covenant through their pledge of Obedience to the Commandments and Laws.
(Ex 24:7; 8; ) 

One Atonement, many Sacrifices

  Hebrews 9:23; 24; 25;  The appointed times that commemorate Yehawah's Covenant of Salvation continued year after year. The day of Atonement depicts several symbolic offerings that are presented before Yehawah to receive Mercy and continual  ReNewal of the Covenant agreement.

The scapegoat is a miss translation of the Hebrew word, " Azazel" that means, "Cast Out". The Azazel goat represents Satan as the source of all sin. The guilt of all mankind's spiritual rebellion against Yehawah's Commandments is placed on the Satan goat that is  "Cast Out". The Evil spiritual influence of Satan must be removed from influencing mankind before Final Atonement Purification is completed.

Messiah Yeshua is anointed High  Priest  Melchizedek  the Eternal mediator of Yehawah's Atonement Mercy.  Melchizedek' ministry will purge mankind from their sins and establish Yehawah's Kingdom on earth. Messiah Yeshua received from the Father the Promised Spirit of Holiness that was poured out on Pentecost to cleanse worshipers from sin. The Passover  "Blood of the Lamb" symbolized the Renewing of Yehawah's Covenant with Faithful worshipers. The Passover Sacrificial Lifeblood ratifies the Pentecost Covenant Renewal through the  Purifying Spirit of Atonement. Passover may be portrayed as a Marriage proposal and Pentecost is the Covenant agreement of engagement that looks forward to the Atonement Wedding of Unity in the Spirit of Holiness.
Ezekiel 16:8; 9; 32; Hos 2:2; 7; 3:1; 2-3; 4; 5; Jer 31:31; 32; Isa 62:1; 5; 11; 12; Eph 5:23; 31; 32; 1 Cor 6:14; 15; 16; 17; Rev 21:2; 3; 6; 7; 9; 10; Eph 2:18-19; 20-21; 22; 2 Cor 11:2; Mt 25:1; Rev 19:7; 8; 9; Yehawah's Covenant Marriage proposal is a Faithful Promise of Spiritual Union in Love.  At Messiah's return, the Marriage of the Lamb will consummate At-One-ment with the Faithful Obedient worshipers of Yehawah through Oneness in the Spirit of Holiness.

Cleansing the Tabernacle of the Heart

   Leviticus 16:15; 16; The Atonement must be a Pure sinless Sacrifice to become an acceptable offering that is presented before Yehawah in the Most Holy place. Sacrificial Blood is sprinkled on the Ark of the Covenant in the earthly tabernacle that symbolically reveals, (Heb 9:7; 8; 11; 12; 13; 14; 15; Jn 14:6; ) the  "Way for Atonement" to completely remove sin. The Ark and Most Holy place is NOT being cleansed.

  The Passover sacrificial, "Blood of the Lamb" became the acceptable, "Wave Sheaf" offering to the Heavenly Father. On Pentecost the Spirit of Holiness was poured out to the disciples of Messiah Yeshua to renew Yehawah's Covenant. Three more appointed remembrances of Messiah Yeshua's work of Salvation will be fulfilled at His return. Trumpets, Atonement, and Tabernacles will prepare Salvation for all mankind.

True worshipers of Messiah Yeshua and the Heavenly Father are commanded to participate in the appointed High Holy Sabbath assemblies. All the Sabbaths reveal important stages of Salvation that will be completed when Messiah Yeshua returns to establish the Heavenly Father's Kingdom on earth. Messiah Yeshua triumphed over sin and death and reigns eternally as Melchizedek the Prince of Peace. The Spirit of Holiness in Messiah Yeshua will lead Faithful worshipers into Obedience to all Truth. Everyone that overcome sin has hope of being in the Resurrection of First Fruits and will reign with Messiah in His Kingdom. The Kingdom of Yehawah Eloheyem the Father will continue the work of Salvation for all mankind. The Sacrificial, "Blood of the Lamb" is the Promised pouring out of the Spirit of Holiness in Messiah Yeshua that comes from the Heavenly Father. The Eternal Messiah Yeshua lives to free all mankind from enslavement to Satan's evil spirit of lawlessness that leads to death.
