The amazing Passover in the early Church of God

Jesus celebrated the new covenant, and the apostles continued to celebrate it even after the Cross. After all the apostles died, the saints of the early Church continuously celebrated the Passover. This is confirmed through the Bible and church history as well. Nevertheless, churches today do not celebrate Passover because it was abolished and the Council of Nicaea held in AD 325, as the Roman Catholic Church insisted on it.The Passover celebrated by JesusMattew 26:18-19: "The Teacher says: My appointed time is near, I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house. So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover".The Passover celebrated by the apostles.1 Co 5:7-8: "For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificied. Therefore let us keep the Festival, not with the old yeast, ...The Passover, through which we participate in the flesh and blood of Christ is an everlasting covenant that contains the promise of the forgivenedd of sins. Satan abolished the Passover because he did not want us to receive this forgiveness and not be saved. However now the time has come and the Passover of the new covenant has been restore by Second Coming Christ, and we now can have eternal life.
