Exodus Chapter 12

Exodus 12

1And the LORD spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt saying,

2This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.

3Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house:

4And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb.

5Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:

6And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.

7And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.

8And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.

9Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast with fire; his head with his legs, and with the purtenance thereof.

10And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire.

11And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the LORD’s passover.

12For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD.

13And 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.

14And 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.

15Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel.

16And in the first day there shall be an holy convocation, and in the seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, save that which every man must eat, that only may be done of you.

17And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall ye observe this day in your generations by an ordinance for ever.

18In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even.

19Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eateth that which is leavened, even that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a stranger, or born in the land.

20Ye shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall ye eat unleavened bread.

21Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto them, Draw out and take you a lamb according to your families, and kill the passover.

22And 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.

23For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you.

24And ye shall observe this thing for an ordinance to thee and to thy sons for ever.

25And it shall come to pass, when ye be come to the land which the LORD will give you, according as he hath promised, that ye shall keep this service.

26And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say unto you, What mean ye by this service?

27That ye shall say, It is the sacrifice of the LORD’s passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he smote the Egyptians, and delivered our houses. And the people bowed the head and worshipped.

28And the children of Israel went away, and did as the LORD had commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they.

29And it came to pass, that at midnight the LORD smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle.

30And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead.

31And he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, Rise up, and get you forth from among my people, both ye and the children of Israel; and go, serve the LORD, as ye have said.

32Also take your flocks and your herds, as ye have said, and be gone; and bless me also.

33And the Egyptians were urgent upon the people, that they might send them out of the land in haste; for they said, We be all dead men.

34And the people took their dough before it was leavened, their kneadingtroughs being bound up in their clothes upon their shoulders.

35And the children of Israel did according to the word of Moses; and they borrowed of the Egyptians jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment:

36And the LORD gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they lent unto them such things as they required. And they spoiled the Egyptians.

37And the children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand on foot that were men, beside children.

38And a mixed multitude went up also with them; and flocks, and herds, even very much cattle.

39And they baked unleavened cakes of the dough which they brought forth out of Egypt, for it was not leavened; because they were thrust out of Egypt, and could not tarry, neither had they prepared for themselves any victual.

40Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years.

41And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt.

42It is a night to be much observed unto the LORD for bringing them out from the land of Egypt: this is that night of the LORD to be observed of all the children of Israel in their generations.

43And the LORD said unto Moses and Aaron, This is the ordinance of the passover: There shall no stranger eat thereof:

44But every man’s servant that is bought for money, when thou hast circumcised him, then shall he eat thereof.

45A foreigner and an hired servant shall not eat thereof.

46In one house shall it be eaten; thou shalt not carry forth ought of the flesh abroad out of the house; neither shall ye break a bone thereof.

47All the congregation of Israel shall keep it.

48And when a stranger shall sojourn with thee, and will keep the passover to the LORD, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one that is born in the land: for no uncircumcised person shall eat thereof.

49One law shall be to him that is homeborn, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among you.

50Thus did all the children of Israel; as the LORD commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they.

51And it came to pass the selfsame day, that the LORD did bring the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt by their armies.

  1. God is wiping the slate clean. He’s getting ready for a new start with his children/bride all to himself…

    2This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.

    40Now the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty years.
    41And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt.

    42It is a night to be much observed unto the LORD for bringing them out from the land of Egypt: this is that night of the LORD to be observed of all the children of Israel in their generations.

    The same happened when they left Babylon, Next he’s getting things ready for our permenant HOME! Right on time, always completely as promised, like this casr to Abraham. Jesus never fails, just don’t look back spiritually, or like Lot’s wife.

  2. God commanded the Israelites to apply a covering of blood to protect them from physical death. Now we must have a covering of the blood of Jesus to protect us from an eternal spiritual death.

  3. In a final move against the powers of Egypt. God declares the means of deliverance from the death of the first born son, is to kill an unspotted lamb, and wipe its blood on the door post and on the sides.

    God warned all the people. They all had a chance. Israel had to make a choice to obey, which would bring their release from captivity. The Egyptians had to choose to defy the world and it’s customs, by spreading an abomination upon their door posts.

    Yet, not one house in all of egypt obeyed.

    Once the cry was heard throughout the land, God said it was time, and he brought them out. Pharoah and the Egyptians may have said get out and take whatever you want, but when God said it was time it was time.

  4. 23For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you.

    Aren’t you glad the blood is now applied to our hearts! Thank the Lord for his sacrifice!

  5. Power in the Blood

    If you didint have the blood applied on the door posts the death angle would have killed the firstborn in the house. We can apply this as the house is ourself and if we dont have the blood of Jesus on us than we are dead to Him, but Jesus rose again and defeated death on the third day. My God is alive and well.

  6. 2This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.

    “To You”

    When God begins a season in your life it doesn’t have to be a specific date on a calendar, or some special occasion. All you have to do is receive and step into what God is doing in your life.

    The Blood On The Door Post protected from death and still today the Blood of Jesus protects from eternal death.

    When the blood of Jesus is applied you become new, your season is new, your life is new, it becomes your new beginning “to you”

  7. 5Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:

    If God is so concerned about the type of lamb used for sacrifice and for it to be without blemish; then why think it not an importance for the people of God to be without spot or blemish? He is coming back for a people clean and pure.

    Wash me white as snow and let your cleansing blood flow daily in my life Lord so that I may be pleasing in your sight.

  8. 13And 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.

    I’m so thankful for the power that is in the blood. We see here that the blood preserved the first born of the Israelites from death. This is a type and shadow of what the blood does for our as well. Applying the blood of Jesus to our lives preserves us death from the sins in our lives, and washes us white as snow.

  9. CONVERTED TO CHRIST NOT THE WORLD

    47All the congregation of Israel shall keep it.
    48And when a stranger shall sojourn with thee, and will keep the passover to the LORD, let all his males be circumcised, and then let him come near and keep it; and he shall be as one that is born in the land: for no uncircumcised person shall eat thereof.

    Freedom at last for the children of Israel! The BLOOD has been applied to their doors; an illustration of the BLOOD of Jesus being applied to our lives through baptism in Jesus name.

    They have been brought out of Egypt; an illustration of us being brought out of the bondage of sin.

    Now, the children of Israel are commanded to keep the covenants they have experienced in verse 47 and notice verse 48 instructs them to not be like allow any differences for strangers. We the Church must protect these same covenants. We should not be longing to be like the world or its system to make people feel comfortable and fit in. We MUST speak “thus saith the LORD” and challenge them to be converted not comforted.

    BE Church

  10. Oh what a night for those that obeyed and stepped out in faith. Their mid-night is about to be over. No more bondage , no more chains, the things of Egypt left behind years of slavery .

    Thank GOD for His Precious Blood.
    Our freedom has been bought, and our mid-night
    Is about to be over. JESUS is about to make history again. HE is coming back for HIS glorious, joyful, bride.
    Stay covered under HIS BLOOD

  11. In verse 12:48 God has been gracious to the Gentile believers also. Even in the old testament salvation was also for the seed of Abraham and the gentiles in the world! The sukkot week of celebration today is one that even Jewish believers acknowlege that all have the right to celebrate through redemption. The modern holiday Jewish believers of Christianity and Judaism build small huts with palm branches as roofs to signify the temporary dwellings we live in wHether that be the tents as they wandered the desert for 40 years or our temples of the HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD! They sleep in these small huts [about the size of the small church we erected on our platform] for 7 days . This was the Sukkoth that took place this month! The Word is fascinating!

  12. there is power power wonder working power in the blood of the lamb, there is power power wonder working power in the precious blood of the lamb………..
    thank God for his protecting blood over us

  13. Vs 36 And the LORD gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they lent unto them such things as they required. And they spoiled the Egyptians.

    There’s just something about when the Lord gives favour to you from in the sight of your enemies!

  14. God commanded that they not only refrain from eating leavened bread but remove leaven completely from their houses. It’s not enough to refrain from the sin of the world, we must get the world out of us and be holy unto God. There’s no place for the church on the fence, the fire of true passion won’t burn lukewarm.

  15. V23.For the Lord will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts the LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you. There is an order to how the Lord wants things done in His word! I’m thankful for Repentance, Baptism in Jesus Name, and being filled with the Holy Ghost!! Thanking God for the Blood!!

  16. Eating the Passover feast while dressed for travel was a sign of the Hebrews’ faith. Although they were not yet free, they were to prepare themselves, for God had said he would lead them out of Egypt. Their preparation was an act of faith. Preparing ourselves for the fulfillment of God’s promises, however unlikely they may seem, demonstrates our faith.

  17. This chapter speaks of instruction. We must heed the instructions of the man of God more closely, and thank God our firstborn is not the price for not following instructions. May the good Lord Bless you all in Jesus name, Amen

  18. 14And 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.

    how many memorials do we have in our lives for what God ahs done for us???
