Christ Is Our Passover
God gave instructions to the Israelites so they could escape the judgment coming on the Egyptians.
EXODUS 12:7,13 NKJ
And they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two
doorposts and on the lintel of the houses where they eat it.
13Now the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where
you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you; and
the plague shall not be on you to destroy you when I strike the
land of Egypt.
The Egyptians had no protection from the destroyer, but the people of Israel who put the blood of a lamb on their dwellings were safe.
The blood represented the Blood of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world -- Jesus Christ (Rev. 13:8). Judgment was legally avoided because of it.
The blood applied stopped the destroyer. Action was required -- not just passive belief in the blood.
PSALM 105:37 NKJ 37 He also brought them out with silver and gold, and there was none feeble among His tribes.
Not only were the children of Israel spared from destruction, but they all left Egypt in good health carrying away the wealth of Egypt.
Christ is our Passover. Can we not expect Him to provide us as much protection and deliverance as the lamb provided the children of Israel in Egypt?
1 CORINTHIANS 5:7 NKJ 7 . . . For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us.
HEBREWS 8:6 NKJ 6 . . . He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises.
LUKE 22:20 NKJ 20 Likewise He also took the cup after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in My blood, which is shed for you.
New Covenant believers have the right to draw a faith Blood line the devil cannot cross. By speaking words of faith we apply the Blood over the "doorposts" of our lives -- the outer edges of all that belongs to us.
With blood on the door of the Israelites in Egypt, no evil dared enter their dwelling. Likewise, we are kept safe through the protection of the divine Blood of Jesus.
Wherever we have authority we should apply the Blood -- and never leave the protection the Blood of Jesus provides.
SAY THIS: Jesus Christ is my Passover who protects and delivers me and my family.
