The First Passover
Today's Passage: Exodus 12: 1-13
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
1. While the Israelites were still in the land of Egypt,
the LORD gave the following instructions to Moses and Aaron:
2. "From now on, this month will be the first month of the year for you.
Announce to the whole community of Israel that
on the tenth day of this month each family must choose a lamb
or a young goat for a sacrifice, one animal for each household.
4. If a family is too small to eat a whole animal,
let them share with another family in the neighborhood.
Divide the animal according to the size of each family and how much they can eat.
5. The animal you select must be a one-year-old male, either a sheep
or a goat, with no defects.
6. "Take special care of this chosen animal until the
evening of the fourteenth day of this first month.
Then the whole assembly of the community of Israel
must slaughter their lamb or young goat at twilight.
7. They are to take some of the blood and smear it on the
sides and top of the door frames of the houses where they eat the animal.
8. That same night they must roast the meat
over a fire and eat it along with bitter salad greens and
bread made without yeast.
9. Do not eat any of the meat raw or boiled in water.
The whole animal ⏤ including the head, legs, and internal organs ⏤
must be roasted over a fire.
10. Do not leave any of it until the next morning.
Burn whatever is not eaten before morning.
11. "These are your instructions for eating this meal:
Be fully dressed, wear your sandals, and carry
your walking stick in your hand. Eat the meal with urgency,
for this is the LORD's Passover.
12. On that night I will pass through the land of
Egypt and strike down every firstborn son and firstborn male
animal in the land of Egypt.
I will execute judgment against all the gods of Egypt.
I will execute judgment against all the gods of Egypt, for I am the LORD!
13. But the blood on your doorposts will serve as a sign,
marking the houses where you are staying.
When I see the blood, I will pass over you.
This plague of death will not touch you when I strike the land of Egypt.
Exodus 12:1-13 NLT
Introducing a New Strategy
History - Oh wow, that is where it comes from.
Again, I would like to emphasize,
simple acts of meditation are not so much difficult, as uncomfortable.
God wants you to know how His story happened.
He created the earth, made his children,
and interwove traditions into his family.
Learning about them is a way to become more intimate with Him.
We come to Your throne covered with the
righteous blood of you Son, Jesus Christ, Jehoshua.
We stop and grasp the depth of this scripture in your redemption story.
We want to connect the dots.
We want to understand how you laid down the foundations
of salvation from the beginning of time.
Help us discover You in Your Words.
In Jesus Precious name we pray.
Thank you for being here
and leaving your name and last initial.
Please take the time to leave a note and share what surprised you today.
Keep in Him today. He has a plan as is testified by the way He has given us his Word.
And, I'll be back tomorrow.
I pray, you will be too.
