The Passover Lamb

 

Reading: Exodus 12:1-51

 

In delivering Israel out of Egypt, God provides a Passover Lamb that symbolizes the Israelite’s need of God’s miraculous help. The Blood of the Lamb placed over the door of the home provided refuge from the plague sent to judge the hard-hearted Egyptians. The blood of the Lamb delineated who had placed their faith in God’s care. God promised to pass over the people with the blood on their doorposts as God would see the blood as a sign on their houses that they were His.

 

There are many details regarding the Passover Lamb that depict the traits of the ultimate Deliverer. The lamb was to be an unblemished male, killed at twilight, the giver of blood. The flesh of the lamb was to be roasted and eaten. Throughout Scripture, the reader learns about God as a Good Shepherd and as the Passover Lamb. God presents these pictures of His anticipated King so that people would be prepared to recognize their Savior when He made Himself known.

 

Moses tried to avoid public life, but God had specific plans for Moses to lead many, great multitudes, out of slavery and into the promised land. God delivers His children out of destruction and into a new way of life, forgiven and forgiving.

 

John 1:29 The next day he saw Jesus coming to him and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

 

Seeing Advent as His child: He is the Passover Lamb. This is great news, nothing BAAAAAAAA…D here other than our sin that is forgiven.
