Passover in a World Growing Darker

21 Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel and said to them, “Pick out and take lambs for yourselves according to your families, and kill the Passover lamb. 22 And you shall take a bunch of hyssop, dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and strike the lintel and the two doorposts with the blood that is in the basin. And none of you shall go out of the door of his house until morning. 23 For the Lord will pass through to strike the Egyptians; and when He sees the blood on the lintel and on the two doorposts, the Lord will pass over the door and not allow the destroyer to come into your houses to strike you. 24 And you shall observe this thing as an ordinance for you and your sons forever.

Exodus 12:21-24

At sunset, Passover began and this is the time that the Jewish people celebrate and reflect about how God prevailed against the Egyptians and led them from captivity (slavery) to freedom.

As a Christian, the Old Testament is not inseparable from the New Testament.

Without these two books in the Bible, Christians, Jews and the entire world have no history or understanding of exactly who God is and the role of the prophets, kings, apostles and Jesus Christ.

My life is much better today and rewarding because I came to know the Truth and agree that man can never be God and neither can man save but Christ (the Lamb of God).

I am not ashamed of the gospel nor will I turn against those who don’t believe in God.

We are living in the last days and the world can end at any time.

While the focus this day has been on Earth Day.

My focus is on the One who created heaven and earth.

May this Passover season remind us all of who God is and the power of His might.
