#144 † Exodus 12 Passover Lamb ☦ 🍷🐑 🫓 🌿
God, the destroyer, is now delivering His people. He gives them specific instructions to sacrifice an unblemished firstborn male lamb, a typology of Jesus sacrificed at the cross. They were to roast it over the fire and eat it with bitter herbs and unleavened bread the night before their exodus from Egypt. They were to eat it in haste as God would take them out of Egypt. They were to take hyssop with the blood of the lamb and post it on their doorposts so when God passed over all the houses in Egypt, those who followed God's instructions would be saved while all of Egyptians' firstborn sons were killed as Pharaoh commanded his people to kill the firstborn of Hebrews. This chapter is a highly cinematic story demonstrating God's power, signs and wonders, and mercy for His people to protect them from wicked Egyptians who enslaved them for four hundred years.
In Exodus 12, God instructs Moses and Aaron to observe the Passover. Each Israelite household is to select an unblemished lamb, slaughter it at twilight, and mark their doorposts with its blood. The roasted lamb is to be eaten with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. This Passover ritual serves as a symbol of God's protection and a commemoration of the impending deliverance.
On Passover night. God carried out the final plague upon Egypt as the "destroyer," killing the firstborn of every household. However, the homes marked with the blood of the lamb were spared. The redemptive power of God was a sacrificial act, foreshadowing His Son, Jesus, who was sacrificed for humanity. Pharaoh, deeply affected by the loss of his firstborn, urgently summons Moses and Aaron to relent finally. He tells them to lead the Israelites out of Egypt, marking the end of their prolonged captivity.
