The Passover

 

Scripture Lesson is Exodus 12:21-31.  This is an excerpt from the message.

 

Exodus 12:21  Then Moses called from all the elders of Israel, and said unto them, Draw out and take you a lamb according to your families, and kill the passover.  Chapter 12 of Exodus provides a perfect foretelling of the Divine plan of redemption.  The aim or design of the Passover was to make plain to Israel the ground on which its salvation was granted – the ground of Atonement.

 

Ver. 22:  And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the bason, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that is in the bason; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning.  Hyssop is an insignificant little plant that grows out of a wall in bunches.  It was of no avail in itself.  Hyssop is a type and symbol of faith.  Faith is of no value in itself.  It gets its value by what it rests on.  If it rests upon God’s sure Word, it avails mightily.

 

The children of Israel were commanded to kill the Passover.  The lamb could not save by the blood in its veins, nor by its life, but only by the shedding of its blood and by the giving of its life.  The way of salvation is exactly this “narrow”.  The Lord Jesus Christ does not save by his life or holy example, but only and alone by His death and shed blood.

 

The blood of the lamb had to be applied in order that it might avail to save Israel from judgment.  The blood in the bason would not avail; it had to be applied to the house.  The Lord, as the lamb of God must be personally received; there must be personal faith in Him and the power of His shed Blood before there can be the enjoyment of salvation.

Ex. 11:7 I put a difference between the Egyptians and the Israelites.

 

As the blood of the lamb saved the firstborn of the Israelites, so the blood of Jesus is our only means of salvation.
