TODAY'S MANNA for Sunday, May 1, 2016
Are you covered by the Blood of the Lamb?
And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt. And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the LORD throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.
Exodus 12:13-14 King James Version
THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY'S VERSE...
Here God is telling us that because of the blood of the lamb that was placed on their doorposts He will cause the Angel of death to pass-over them and their household. They will not be affected by the death plague. But any doorpost that does not have the blood of the lamb on it He will allow the Angel of death to strike their firstborn, both of them and of their livestock. One thing here that is very important for you to note – It is NOT God who is striking the first born, it is the angel of death. God did NOT do it! But He did allow the angel of death to do it. But, he still in fact gave them a way out, a way to protect themselves. The Blood of Jesus is what covers us now.
God tells them to make this day a memorial and to keep it throughout their generations. He is saying; "remember that which I have done for you!" This was Old Covenant – this was for the Israelites, the Jewish people, God’s Chosen ones. But, we have a much better Covenant now! Under the "New Covenant" Jesus has covered all of mankind with His precious Blood. The only thing necessary to be covered by it is to make Jesus your Lord! No other work or works are necessary, just believe in Jesus. It’s so easy! The Blood of the Sacrificial Lamb, shed once for all my sin and for my forgiveness. His Blood shed once for all will be my daily pass-over from now on. We need to remember what Jesus did for us! We need to put ourselves under that Blood each and every day.
Abba Father, thank You for sending Jesus to be the Sacrificial Lamb for me. Thank You for the shedding of His Blood that my sin might be washed away, forgotten, cleansed by His blood. Thank You Lord for putting me in remembrance of what Jesus did for me. That through Him by the washing of His blood I have been made the righteousness of God in Jesus. In the precious name of Jesus, I pray.
