The actual sign that rested above the doors of the children of Israel formed a cross. Even at the time of the Exodus, the Father was previewing the redemption of all his chosen. Without the sign of the cross, every home in Egypt suffered death. Imagine the devastation and pain throughout the land, when each of the 1st born of Egypt died. The most horrific part was that it could have all been avoided—by freeing Israel.
Throughout history from then until now, the story of the Passover was and is still told in households all over the globe. The message, so loudly resonates—when you choose to defiantly oppose the hand of God, the result will be disastrous. Conversely, as his chosen, God will rescue, restore and free you—in his time and by his plan–and there is truly no one or nothing that will stop him.
With that history in mind, we must walk as a chosen child of the Lord. We need not act like slaves to our sin and our fears. Instead, we walk as though we are a free people, redeemed by the blood of the sacrificial Passover lamb. Our hearts, like the doorframes in Goshen, are clearly marked with the blood of the lamb that takes away the sin of the world. Gather up your baggage—It is time to walk as a free people!!!
God Bless You
The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are, and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt.
then tell them, ‘It is the Passover sacrifice to the Lord, who passed over the houses of the Israelites in Egypt and spared our homes when he struck down the Egyptians.’” Then the people bowed down and worshiped.
The Israelites did just what the Lord commanded Moses and Aaron.
At midnight the Lord struck down all the firstborn in Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh, who sat on the throne, to the firstborn of the prisoner, who was in the dungeon, and the firstborn of all the livestock as well.
