The Passover lamb was also to have its head eaten, its legs eaten, and all its inwards eaten -
Eat not of it raw, nor boiled at all with water, but roast with fire; its head with its legs and with the inwards thereof.
9 Eat not of it raw nor boiled at all with water, but roasted— its head, its legs, and its inner parts.
The head signifies wisdom of Christ.
The legs signify activity and move of Christ.
The the inwards signify the various inward parts of Christ’s being.
To eat the Passover lamb with the head, legs, and inwards is to take Christ as a whole, entirely, in His entirety. The saved man must eat Him or take Christ into our being in all His wisdom, activities, move, and inward parts.
Jesus said " As the living Father sent Me and I live because of the Father, so he who eats Me shall live because of Me." ( John 6:57)
If we take in Jesus we will not only be Passed Over in eternal judgment. But we will also be filled eventually with Jesus to live Jesus, live out Jesus, live unto Jesus and Jesus will live out from within us.
His head, His legs, and all His inward parts will blend with us.
God is the uncreated and eternal life Who became embodied in Jesus Christ. He came to get into to those justified and forgiven by His redemptive death.
The Hebrews were to eat the lamb along with unleavened bread and bitter herbs.
To eat with unleavened bread means to eliminate all sinful things. When we enjoy Christ as our Passover, we must purge away everything sinful. We are taking in Jesus not only to be forgiven but to have sinful things purged out of our living. Christ is coming in and sinful things are subsequently going out of our lives. Unleavened bread signifies living that is not corrupted by sin.
"I am taking You in Lord Jesus, not just to go to a happy earth or a happy heaven. I am taking You in, I am eating You Lord Jesus, that sinfulness may be purged out of my life."
Because in this process of Christ pushing OUT the sinful things in us we do not enjoy sinning as before. This is the meaning of eating the lamb "with bitter herbs"
. The Christian now has a bitter feeling within when doing the things of unrighteousness that she or he did before.
This means that we need to regret and repent, to experience a bitter taste regarding sinful things. After we believed in the Lord Jesus, many of us received Him as our new life supply and also gave up everything sinful. For as long as we are Christians we are continuing to give up sinful things because they are now bitter to us.
Jesus comes into our hearts and we experienced regret and repentance. This indicates that we ate Christ with bitter herbs.
We should not take the lamb without the unleavened bread and the bitter herbs. Christ is a Person who can enter into our being to be a new life supply. He is a divine living Person Who is completely without sin, without "leaven". There is absolutely no corruption in Jesus Christ and that gives the believer a bitter feeling when he sins. And because Jesus is now within the saved person he or she repents when a mistake is made. This life is sensitive to sin, to any kind of wrongdoing, to anything of the self. To keep yourself unleavened, you have to repent.
You learn to enjoy something else, Someone else. To live through Christ is an enjoyment that renders other living bitter because it is corrupted by sin, by "leaven."
