March 27, 2021 is celebrated as Passover. In Hebrew the word is Pesach or to jump over. Y’all, He loves us so!! He truly leaps over mountains for us.
He is always with us, and He is always for us. When the Israelites were enslaved to harsh taskmasters in Egypt, “The Lord said, ‘I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt. I have heard them crying out because of their slave drivers, and I am concerned about their suffering. So I have come down to rescue them from the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land into a good and spacious land, a land flowing with milk and honey'” (Exodus 3:7-8).
See!! He tells us in His Word!! He sees us; He hears us. He knows how we feel! Like any good Father, He longs for His child to cry out to Him, and He will rescue us. Actually, He already has, but we must accept this freedom and walk in it daily.
Yes, we are free in Christ, but we must exercise this rightful privilege that he paid for on a cross for each of us over 2,000 years ago. He tells us to set our minds “on things above” and to “take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” Therefore, do not live in a prison with invisible bars because He has redeemed us with an “outstretched arm” (Exodous 6:6). We can be guilty of letting so many things imprison us such as wondering what others think of us, being people pleasers, even the legalisms of religious systems.
The sheep were considered gods in Egypt during the Passover. Therefore to kill the sheep and paint the blood on their doorposts was dangerous because it would truly anger their “owners.” The Israelites who obeyed God and killed the sheep, painted the blood on the doorposts and fled Egypt truly trusted God over what they could actually see. Ein Od Milvado means “There is nothing but Him” in Hebrew. There is no other explanation, BUT GOD!!! It was a miracle from God that parted a sea and took the exiles into the land “flowing with milk and honey.”
So as we celebrate Passover and go into Holy Week, let us celebrate Our freedom in Christ knowing full well that He keeps all His promises, and He is coming back one day soon. Let us accept His gift, live for Him, and one day soon we will be in His presence in Paradise.
