Daily Bread 2/6/2023


    Daily Bread – February 6, 2023 (The Second Day – Genesis 1:6-8) John 1:29 – The next day, John saw Jesus coming towards him and he said, “Look! The Lamb of God, Who takes away the sin of the world.” Jesus’ Representation In The Blood Of The Passover Lamb The blood of the Passover lamb represents the power that broke the yoke of the 10th plague and of the domination and trickery Pharaoh exercised over Israel (Exodus 11:1). The Passover night was the time that God laid the sins of the people upon the firstborn. Only the blood of a Passover lamb, which represented the blood of the firstborn, could expiate for a family that night (Exodus 13:2, 11-16). The blood of the Passover lamb represents redemption for it was on that night God redeemed all of Israel through their firstborn (Exodus 13:15, 6:6). It represents deliverance because God delivered Israel from bondage (Exodus 12:27). It represents the beginning of God’s Covenant with Israel, for it is “the beginning of months”, and is the event that set the Covenant into motion that was promised to Abraham (Exodus 12:1-5, 13:9, 6:4,7,8; Hebrews 8:9). The Passover represents the very day Israel was born as a nation, and as such, the covenant people of God. Finally, it is the time when Israel was released from slavery to serve God and be His people (Exodus 13:3). Blessings Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
