Passover Lamb of God

Passover Lamb of God

Exodus 12:14
“This is a day you are to commemorate; for the generations to come you shall celebrate it as a festival to the LORD—a lasting ordinance.

I was just thinking Lord, how because you commanded, Lord, therefore the Jews till today celebrate the Passover to remember how You brought them out of the slavery from Egypt into freedom. For the past 3,500 years the Jews have been celebrating this and the memory of the Passover passed down from generation to generation.

Isn't this beautiful? This to me is reasonable evidence that the Passover did happen, that You are real ( for those who question your existence), the parting of the red sea did happen and You saved Your people. How can we call holocaust fake when they have pictures and every year the families remember what their forefathers went through...especially the first generation what happened to their parents and this memory was brought down generation to generation. So the same with the Passover. It was passed down from one generation to another. How can people say it is all a lie?

In Egypt - An unblemished lamb for EACH HOUSEHOLD. As its blood was put on the sides and top of doorpost, so Your wrath was upon every firstborn of every animal and people in Egypt but because of the blood, You passed over them and no destruction came upon them.

In the promised land - An unblemished lamb sacrificed by the high priest for the WHOLE NATION of Israel at the tabernacle. 

Today, we have Jesus as the unblemished lamb sacrificed on the cross for the sins of THE WORLD once and for all so we need not do sacrifices anymore to set us free from the bondage of sin.  By Jesus' blood, we are the righteousness of God. With the power of Holy Spirit, we overcome sin becoming more and more like Jesus.

Thank you Jesus for being the passover lamb for us. Thank you for commanding us to always remember this day. Because you commanded, we can now remember exactly what you did many many years ago, how you first brought us out of darkness. And you kept bringing us out of darkness but we kept rejecting you. Yet, you still loved us and gave us Jesus and His sacrifice, once and for all so that we need not use the blood of goats and bulls anymore to atone for our sins. Thank you for making a way back to You once and for all. I believe, I receive your salvation. Thank you that it is a free gift just as you said in Isaiah 55:1-3

 1 “Come, all you who are thirsty, 
   come to the waters; 
and you who have no money, 
   come, buy and eat! 
Come, buy wine and milk 
   without money and without cost. 
2 Why spend money on what is not bread, 
   and your labor on what does not satisfy? 
Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, 
   and you will delight in the richest of fare. 
3 Give ear and come to me; 
   listen, that you may live. 
I will make an everlasting covenant with you, 
   my faithful love promised to David. 

Thank you for your progressive revelation. You had made known to us manynmany years ago through the prophets that You were going to send Your arm to us, Jesus Christ - the Anointed One, the Ruler to save us. Thank you because of your sacrifice, everything is now alright between You and I. Lead me o Lord by your spirit daily to live for You. In Jesus' name. Amen.
