“And God said to Moses and Aaron while still in Egypt,”This month is to be the first month of the year for you. Address the whole community of Israel; tell them that on the tenth of this month each man is to take a lamb for his family, one lamb to a house…Keep it penned until the fourteenth day of this month and then slaughter it- the entire community of Israel will do this at dusk. Then take some of the blood and smear it on the two doorposts and the lintel of the houses in which you will eat it.”
I am God. The blood will serve as a sign on the houses where you live. When I see the blood I will pass over you- no disaster will touch you.”Exodus 12 The Message
God is speaking to each of us on the earth. He is telling us to choose a lamb for our households. He is saying,”Choose Jesus, my son. The spotless Lamb of God who took away the sins of the world.”
When we give our minds, bodies and spirits to Jesus and ask Him into our hearts to save us, we can take communion. We are instructed to take communion, bread and juice and remember Him. In that way God sees that we have honored Him and He covers us and our households. He passes over us. In his mercy, he passes over us.
Prayer: Oh God, we cry aloud for your mercy on us and our households. We cry aloud Mercy eight times. We take communion and declare that the plague will pass over us because of your mercy. We ask for You God to save us. Forgive our sins. Send help. Send the Holy Spirit to help us. Send angels to protect us and our families. Teach us your ways.We want to follow you in Jesus’ Name.
