    Verse 17~The wisdom of this law was shown years later when King Solomon's many wives turned his heart away from Jehovah God.

    Verse 16~The people were not to rely on material things or on other nations, but they were to put their complete trust in Jehovah God.

    The Passover and the feast of Unleavened Bread was instituted by Moses for the children of Israel, to forever memorialize the LORD delivering them from the bondage of slavery in Egypt. It is significantly representative of Christ's sacrifice on Calvary to save the whole of humanity form its sins, thereby reconciling and redeeming us to God. St. Patrick's Day and Passover are not the same thing.

    Eric; Patrick was the Apostle of Ireland: born at Kilpatrick, near Dumbarton, in Scotland, in the year 387; died at Saul, Downpatrick, Ireland, 17 March, 493. His parents Calphurnius and Conchessa, belonged to a Roman family of high rank, and held the office of decurio (members of the colonial council) in Gaul or Britain. He was the one to first bring the Glad Tidings to what is now Ireland.

    I know it is said by man and believed to be true that we no longer need abide by mosaic laws. But I urge you folks to honor the Passover and I urge you to honor it this month from the 14th-20th. The 17th being The Feast of Unleavened Bread. Maybe I'm mistaken but I think most people call it St Patrick's Day. Biblical scholars help me out here. We may want to re-check our calendars on this one. 27

    God is our creator, He knows and controls all things. We should pray to God thru Jesus who is our intercessor. Prayer to others are useless as they have only power given by God who has all power.
