April 12: Passover

– The Sacrifice of the Passover Lamb

While the Angel of Death passed through Egypt, the Jews were protected by the blood of the Passover lamb.  God always offers mercy in the midst of judgment.

Exodus 12:3, 5-7

Speak to all the congregation of Israel, saying: ‘On the tenth of this month every man shall take for himself a lamb, according to the house of his father, a lamb for a household… Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year. You may take it from the sheep or from the goats. Now you shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month. Then the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it at twilight. And they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel of the houses where they eat it.

The lamb was killed on the threshold of the door.  So the blood was on the top, the bottom of the door and on the two sides – thus making the sign of the cross!

PRAY THE JEWISH PEOPLE WILL SEE THE CROSS MADE BY THE BLOOD OF THE PASSOVER LAMB!

The first cut.
