2018-10-28 - Exodus ~ The Hebrew Christians Passover
“… So it was that the people Israel spent the next day in speechless excitement fulfilling the commands of the Lord their God exactly as Moses directed them.
Every household took a lamb, a male one year old without spot or blemish, and killed it. They caught its blood in bowls, and with bunches of hyssop smeared the blood on the doorposts and the lintels of their houses. The flesh of the lamb they roasted.
In the evening, then, inside their houses, they ate the lamb with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. They ate all of it, as the Lord commanded, leaving none for the morning. And they ate in clothes ready for a journey, their loins girded, sandals on their feet, staves in their hands.. They ate in great haste.
“ At midnight the Destroyer went forth. The angel of the Lord passed through all the land of Egypt. When he came to a house that had the blood of a lamb smeared on its door-posts, he passed over that house. But every other house was open before him, and he entered, and when he left, a first-born child lay dead.
The Lord smote all the first born in Egypt, from the first-born of Pharaoh who sat on his golden throne to the first-born of the prisoner in his prison. All.
So there went up over the whole land a great and grievous weeping, for there was not a house where one was not dead.
And Pharaoh cried unto Moses and Aaron: “Rise! Go forth from my people! Go, you and your children, and serve the Lord with all your flocks and all your herds. Be gone. Be gone – and bless me too.”1
