PASSOVER LAMB VERSUS THE DESTROYER

The tenth and final plague in Egypt involved the Destroyer and the Blood of the Innocent Lamb of God:

“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. 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. 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. And you shall observe this thing as an ordinance for you and your sons forever” (Exodus 12:21-24 NKJV).

Those who trusted in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob smeared the blood of their personal sacrificial lamb on the doorposts of their residence due to the LORD telling Moses and Aaron: “I will pass over (avar: עֲבַר) the land of Egypt that night and I will strike all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and on all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgments; I am the LORD” (Exodus 12:12).

Then in the very next verse, we see the term “pass over” again in our English translations; but this time it is portraying the exact opposite of the judgment on man, beast, and the gods of Egypt. Behold, the incredible mercy of God: “The blood shall be a sign to you on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over (pasach: פָּסַח) to you, and no plague will befall you to destroy you, when I strike the land of Egypt” (Exodus 12:13).

The phrase “I will pasach to you” in Exodus 12:13 can also be translated “I will pasach upon you,” which means that God passed into the homes of those who trusted Him and His Presence came upon them to protect them from the Destroyer. In other words, God withdrew His covering from those who trusted in the world (i.e., Egypt) and sheltered those who trusted in the Eternal One. When Omniscient One saw the blood of the sacrificial Passover lamb, he passed over to enter that house to be the protective covering for those within. The Holy One mercifully save them from the judgment of certain death in Egypt. The seal of the Passover lamb protected the people inside.

Then for fifteen hundred years, the Hebrews remembered this pass over by sacrificing lambs to the Most High God. They faithfully rehearsed the events that recalled their redemption in Egypt, as instructed by the LORD: “So this day shall be to you a memorial; and you shall keep it as a feast to the Lord throughout your generations. You shall keep it as a feast by an everlasting ordinance” (Exodus 12:14 NKJV).

During these 1500 years, the prophets of Israel understood that the Passover Lamb simply covered their sins, but they also understood that one day God would send THE Lamb of God sacrifice that atoned and redeemed people from all our sins – unintentional and willful sin. “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” (John 1:29). Isaiah described the perfect fulfillment of the Passover Lamb in Isaiah 53, which Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) satisfied to a “T” approximately two thousand years ago.

Think about how Yeshua was born in a stable amongst lambs in Bethlehem. Think about how John the Baptist proclaimed, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world,” when he saw Yeshua, which means that Yeshua literally was the sacrificial Passover Lamb that was foretold.

Scholars have mapped out how Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) fulfilled every aspect of the Passover Lamb. Take for instance, on the tenth day of the month, the families were supposed to take a lamb and bring it into their home for five days. They were meant to bond with the adorable creature while they inspected it to insure it was without blemish. All of this was meant to help them grasp the incredible cost of sacrificing an innocent to cover their sin. On the tenth day of the month of Nisan, Yeshua entered Jerusalem riding on a donkey where he was inspected by all of Israel and set aside for observation. For five days, the religious leaders of Israel tested Yeshua, looking for any defect; but He was found “perfect.” They couldn’t find anything wrong with Him. In desperation, the religious leaders took him to the governmental authority in Israel – Pontius Pilate – hoping the Pilate would find a defect. After interrogating and beating Yeshua, Pilate stood up and proclaimed, “I find no fault in Him,” as he tried to wash his hands of the whole mess. Therefore, Yeshua endured the five day inspection of an innocent Passover Lamb.

This is just a couple points of Yeshua being the fulfillment the Passover Lamb who takes away the sins of the world. You can do your own research for the rest. Behold, the pure and innocent, kind and merciful, Lamb of God!

Happy Passover!

Give em heaven!!!

MIRIAM & THE GREAT SHABBAT

Miriam was 126 years old when she went home to be with the Lord on the 10th of Nisan of the Hebrew year 2487, which was 39 years after the Exodus and exactly one year before the Children of Israel entered the Promise Land. Miriam, Aaron and Moses all died within twelve months of each other. 

It is in remembrance of Miriam’s passing that the “Great Shabbat” before Passover is celebrated rather than on the actual date that she crossed over to the other side. It is interesting that the Great Sabbath (i.e., Shabbat HaGadol: שבת הגדול) honors the time when the first generation of Miriam, Moses, Aaron and Company set aside the lamb in Egypt for the Passover Sacrifice (i.e., Korban Pesach: קרבן פסח).

Once the Israelites erected a Temple in Jerusalem, it was the custom for God’s people to obtain their Passover Lamb four days before Passover to ensure that their lambs were indeed without spot or blemish (Exodus 12:5). These four days also allowed each family to become attached to their sacrificial lamb. They would get to experience how sweet, innocent, and lovable the little creature truly was, which caused “a lamb” (Exo. 12:3) to become “your lamb” (Exo. 12:5).

Significantly, the Passover Lamb for all families was referred to as a singular lamb – The Lamb of God: “Your lamb [singular] shall be an unblemished male a year old; you may take it [singular] from the sheep or from the goats. You shall keep it [singular] until the fourteenth day of the same month, then the whole  assembly of the congregation of Israel is to kill it [singular – oto: אתוֹ]at twilight” (Exodus 12:5-6 NASB). Notice when Exodus 12:6 speaks of killing it/him, it is the Hebrew word “oto,” which can be translated as the First and the Last, or the ALEF-TAV (את) combined with the Hebrew Living Letter VAV(ו). VAV not only signifies a connection between heaven and earth, but in the oto combination directly ties the VAV heaven to earth connection to the Son of Man who is the First and the Last, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty (Rev. 1:8).

Shabbat HaGadol not only foreshadowed the “Lamb of God” (שׂה האלהים) sacrifice of Yeshua on the Cross that took/takes away the sins of the world (John 1:29), but it also commemorates Miriam’s passing over to the other side. When Miriam died, something astonishing happened. Miriam’s well suddenly dried up. The rolling rock from which the living water flowed kept on rolling and disappeared amongst the other rocks of the desert. (Please refer to https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2021/03/17/miriams-well/.) Now God’s people knew that the spiritual rock with the spiritual drink in the Wilderness were for sure connected to Miriam, just like Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) was connected to his earthly mother Mary (Mariam in Hebrew).

Give em heaven!!!
