My meditations Today
Then Moses summoned all the elders of Israel and said to them, “Go at once and select the animals for your families and slaughter the Passover lamb.
Take a bunch of hyssop, dip it into the blood in the basin and put some of the blood on the top and on both sides of the doorframe. None of you shall go out of the door of your house until morning.
When the Lord goes through the land to strike down the Egyptians, he will see the blood on the top and sides of the doorframe and will pass over that doorway, and he will not permit the destroyer to enter your houses and strike you down.
Christ Our Passover Lamb
Good day to you in the name of Jesus. Happy Sunday to you as well hope you had a great time in Church.
In today’s reading, an end finally came to Israel’s oppression in Egypt. Meanwhile God gave the Israelites some instruction on what to do so as to not share in the destruction he brought upon Egypt.
They where to all kill a year old Lamb or goat, and then rub its blood on their door post. They were also instructed to make their bread without yeast. The Lord made this a memorial for them, and was and still is celebrated every year in the Jewish tradition.
The Lord passed through the land that night and did smite all the first-born of the land of Egypt—both man and beast. The cry was great, the Egyptians were plundered and Israel came out with victory. Glory to God.
I begin my lesson now.
Today, Christ is our Passover lamb, but we must understand the significance of the instructions the Lord gave to Israel before Christ came.
The Passover represents a substitution plan not an exemption plan. The Lamb, which was to be one year old represents Christ. The yeast the were not to add to their bread represents the excesses of man, his old nature. No more sinful nature, we have been substituted away from the old life.
1 Corinthians 5:7-8
Get rid of the old yeast, so that you may be a new unleavened batch—as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.
Therefore let us keep the Festival, not with the old bread leavened with malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
The life of any being is in the blood. When Christ died, he took our place, there was a substitution. He died our death, so we can now no longer live our old way of life but rather live in his life.
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
If you understand this mystery, then you know that Christ took your place in shame, took your curses, took all of what the devil had on you.
With this understanding, you are left with two options. It’s either you live his life, which is a life of victory or you go back to pick up your old life.
Living the life of Jesus, now entails that he becomes Lord of your life—which is what to be born again means. Then moving on, you reciprocate the love he has for you by your obedience to his will for you.
According to the scripture we saw earlier we are told to keep the festival. In the old covenant the Israelites kept this feast for seven days. However, Christ has taken our place once and for all. And we are expected to keep living without the yeast, not just for seven days but for all time.
In this is the real essence of living. Living the god life on the earth, a life empowered by God himself—through his Spirit.
The Lord give you understanding.
Thank you father for giving Jesus away to take my place, for making him my Passover lamb. Therefore I choose to live your life, the victorious life of Christ, a live free of the hold of sin, and all forms of oppression in the name of Jesus.
