The Covenant of Blood PART 1
God will exempt you from Death During this Passover –
Exodus 11:1- Now the Lord had said to Moses, “I will bring one more plague on Pharaoh and on Egypt. After that, he will let you go from here, and when he does, he will drive you out completely. 2 Tell the people that men and women alike are to ask their neighbours for articles of silver and gold.” 3 (The Lord made the Egyptians favourably disposed toward the people, and Moses himself was highly regarded in Egypt by Pharaoh’s officials and by the people.)
4 So Moses said, “This is what the Lord says: ‘About midnight I will go throughout Egypt. 5 Every firstborn son in Egypt will die, from the firstborn son of Pharaoh, who sits on the throne, to the firstborn son of the female slave, who is at her hand mill, and all the firstborn of the cattle as well. 6 There will be loud wailing throughout Egypt—worse than there has ever been or ever will be again. 7 But among the Israelites not a dog will bark at any person or animal.’ Then you will know that the Lord makes a distinction between Egypt and Israel
A few things we find in the scripture is:
- God has all power over all people and over every situation.
- God can make strangers favorably disposed towards you - Tell the people that men and women alike are to ask their neighbours for articles of silver and gold.”
- God can make you be favored by your enemies - Moses was highly regarded in Egypt by Pharaohs officials and by the people.
- God has the power to separate the people who are in his covenant from the plagues and pandemics of death and make them experience heavenly peace even when the wailing of people around is too loud!
- God does not us exempt us from pain and death while all around us is peace and celebration. God exempt us from the cry of death when death is around you V- 7 But among the Israelites not a dog will bark at any person or animal.’
- The separation and distinction can be a whisker wide, but God does not have a margin of error - b Then you will know that the Lord makes a distinction between Egypt and Israel.
Exodus 12. 7 Then they are to take some of the blood and put it on the sides and tops of the doorframes of the houses where they eat the lambs. 8 That same night they are to eat the meat roasted over the fire, along with bitter herbs, and bread made without yeast.
12 “On that same night I will pass through Egypt and strike down every firstborn of both people and animals, and I will bring judgment on all the gods of Egypt. I am the Lord. 13 The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are, and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt.
- God desired to exempt all Israelites from the curse of death! He established a system and in it he put a procedure. This procedure did not work on some people because of who they were and fail on others because of who they were, but to all who followed the procedures of the covenant were delivered and preserved.
- The blood of the lamb was made the system in which the covenant of life that exempted Israelite from death was hidden. Today the covenant of life that exempt men from death is hidden in Christ Jesus.
- The blood is the sign over us, where we live and when God sees the blood, God passes over us.
The Covenant of the blood of Jesus Christ! The Holy Communion
Jesus turned the Passover celebration into a meal of flesh and blood, and he called it the Holy communion or the Last Supper.
Mathew 26:17-18 On the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover?”
18 He replied, “Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, ‘The Teacher says: My appointed time is near. I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house.’” 19 So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover.
Mathew 26:26-28 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.”
27 Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. 28 This is my blood of the[b] covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins
