The Passover both Old and New by Steve Keeler

Exodus 12:1-13

Now the LORD said to Moses and Aaron in the land of

Egypt, this month shall be the beginning of months for

you; it is to be the first month of the year to you. Speak

to all the congregation of Israel, saying, On the tenth of

this month they are each one to take a lamb for

themselves, according to their fathers' households, a

lamb for each household. Now if the household is too

small for a lamb, then he and his neighbor nearest to

his house are to take one according to the number of

persons in them; according to what each man should

eat, you are to divide the lamb.

Your lamb shall be an unblemished male a year old;

you may take it from the sheep or from the goats. You

shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same

month, then the whole assembly of the congregation of

Israel is to kill it at twilight. Moreover, they shall take

some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and

on the lintel of the houses in which they eat it.

They shall eat the flesh that same night, roasted with

fire, and they shall eat it with unleavened bread and

bitter herbs.

Do not eat any of it raw or boiled at all with water, but

rather roasted with fire, both its head and its legs along

with its entrails. And you shall not leave any of it over

until morning, but whatever is left of it until morning,

you shall burn with fire.

Now you shall eat it in this manner: with your loins

girded, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your

hand; and you shall eat it in haste it is the LORD'S

Passover. For I will go through the land of Egypt on

that night, and will strike down all the firstborn in the

land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the

gods of Egypt I will execute judgments I am the

LORD.

The blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where

you live; and when I see the blood I will pass over you,

and no plague will befall you to destroy you when I

strike the land of Egypt.

Children often will play with models, model cars, trains,

airplanes if you are a man and doll houses and little tea

sets if you are a woman. The point of a model is that it

provides a simplified and scaled-down version of the

real thing.

The story of the Passover in Exodus 12 is not only a

record of the miraculous deliverance of the Israelites

over 3,000 years ago, but it also provides a wonderful

model of God's way of salvation as achieved by Jesus

on the cross of Calvary.

It's a three dimensional model and those three

dimensions are what we are saved from, by, and to.

The first dimension:

We are saved from destruction.

Exodus 12:12, 'For I will go through the land of Egypt

on that night, and will strike down all the firstborn in the

land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the

gods of Egypt I will execute judgments I am the

LORD.'

This is the 10th and last plague that the Lord inflicted

on Pharaoh and his land. Time after time the Lord had

sent Moses to Pharaoh and told him, "Let my people

go." Time after time the Lord had asserted his

authority over Pharaoh and his gods. Time after time
