THE BLOOD OF THE SACRIFICE LAMB
GOD INSTITUTES THE PASSOVER
What has taken place up to this point? We can see Godís plan unfolding.
We need to see the way the Lord prepares His people for deliverance. He could have simply spoken to have all Israelís enemies confounded and destroyed. The Lord wanted us to see how He alone is God and ďvengeance is mine saith the Lord I will repayĒ. We saw how Pharaoh tried to negotiate a different settlement than what the Lord desired, but praise the name of the Lord, He doesnít compromise.
The power of our God is matchless it cannot be measured by manís power or by manís achievements. How we stand in awe, beholding the miracles of our King as never before seen.
Revelation 15:2-4† And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.† Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.
Comment This is the perfect TYPE or SHADOW of God offering His son on Calvary to give Eternal Life to the world (Feast of the Passover).
We begin with the state of Israel at the time God was to Institute the††† Passover Lamb.
†††††††††††††††††††††††† a.††††††† The children of Israel were still in Egypt in bondage as slaves.
b. Moses had completed by the Word of God, all miracles before Pharaoh of Egypt to cause him to let the people go to worship their God.
†††††††††††††††††††††††† c. †††††† †Still the Pharaoh would not let them go!
†††††††††††††††††††††††† d.††††††† God was to institute the Passover to bring them out.
e. God was to send the Death Angel that would pass through the land of Egypt.
††††††††††††††††††††††† †f.††††††††† Only the blood of a lamb would spare them ‑ Israel obeyed!
