Exodus Chapter 12 Discussion

  • Bob 'Whosoever', Jn3:16, Rom.10:13 on Exodus 12 - 1 year ago
    vs 32 has always stood out to me, ever since God brought it to my attention many years ago, when Pharaoh said to Moses, " and bless me too!.." :-) I personally don't remember hearing that verse preached or taught on since! " ...how can you bless whom God has cursed ... "? No record of Moses responding to Pharaoh's request!

    kol tuv etc ... (i.e. be well)

    Pharaoh even had the gall to ask Moses to bless him. He must have feared for his own life. Even the Egyptian people told the Israelites to leave in haste because they feared they all would die if they remained. The Israelites did as instructed, asking the Egyptians for gold, silver, raiment, which the Egyptians gave willingly. And so it is said that in this way the Israelites plundered Egypt. So they must have left with quite a haul. The Israelites carried their kneading bowl on their shoulders and the dough they had made lacked leaven and they left Egypt, journeying as far as Succoth from Raamses(in Goshen). Where was this Succoth? EAst of Egypt between Raamses and Etham. Many other people exited Egypt with the Israelites. Their origins are not mentioned.

    This chapter mentions that the length of the sojourn of Israelites was 430 years, as told to Abraham in Genesis.

    So, as mentioned in several posts on this chapter, this account of the passover has many instances that point to Jesus. He was the "first born" who was slaughtered. He was the passover lamb that was sacrificed for God's people's deliverance from the plague of death. His blood was shed and spread over the doorway of our bodies, our hearts. He was the unleavened bread, without sin, broken for us. His bones were not broken just like the lambs'. He died so that His people can live. His blood marks us as His own people.

    The Israelites needed to have faith that God would indeed spare them when he "saw" the blood on their doorways. The Israelites were to do all as Moses instructed them by faith that God's ways are right and he is faithful to His words to Moses. The Israelites were to leave on Moses' command and not even think about staying behind and by faith, believe that God would lead them to a land they did not know. The Israelites where then instructed to perpetuate this passover meal forever as a remembrance of God's deliverance of them from death, bondage, and the ways of Egypt.

    As this chapter opens, God instructs Moses exactly how the Israelites were to so prepare for the Passover that night and how the Passover must be celebrated from that night on each year by the Israelites forever. God tells Moses that this night will always be the first day of the new year for Israel. (must have had a different day they used as the first day of the new year before this). The Passover (that night) was after the spring equinox, mid-month the first month of Aviv (Spring) in the month of Nisan.

    In verse 12 God tells Moses He will execute judgment on all of the gods of Egypt. The Egyptian god for life was Osiris, the great god to the Egyptians. In this final plague God will show Himself supreme over even Osiris, having power over life and death.

    Moses instructs the Israelites precisely what they were to do to be passed over by the agents of death sent by God. Obedience was necessary for any Israelite to be spared from death. They were to make unleavened bread for one meal. A lamb selected and slaughtered at midnight (when the plague of death began). They were to use hyssop to spread the blood of the lamb upon the doorposts and lintel. The lamb was to be roasted whole with it's innards intact and no bones are to be broken. It was to be eaten with bitter herbs in haste. The lamb was be consumed completely that night with none left for the next day. They were to be girded up, packed up, staff in hand ready to flee at the command of Moses. They were to stay in their houses until Moses' command came for them to flee in haste.

    And thus, at midnight the destroyer came upon Egypt and first born Egyptians and beasts began to be killed. In the middle of the night, Pharaoh arises, hearing the loud crying of his people, servants. He must have discovered that his firstborn had been killed, too. He immediately summoned Moses and Aaron, and they came to Pharoah during the night. Pharaoh commands Moses and Aaron to leave immediately with the Israelites and livestock

    Yes now were growing leavened with the yeast of the bible.God bless SU we will all grow togeather ,and keep seeking keep recieving keep blessing.Keep asking! it has never been so easy.We are all heading to the same place to soar with eagles on the wings of eagles to Jesus to the heavens above.
  • Su - In Reply on Exodus 12 - 2 years ago
    A very good question. I have read that there are some very definite problems yeast can cause in the body, and by avoiding yeast it might alleviate some of these problems.

    I had a book put across my path called "The Yeast Connection" written by Dr.Crook, who now has a website online. It is very informative. One of the problems he highlights in his book is that yeast can cause a yeast infection to occur anywhere in the body including the gut. A person with yeast infection often craves sugar and alcohol (which is high in sugar). The yeast turns sugars, even sugars in fruit, into alcohol in the gut. I think we all know the woes too much alcohol can do to a body over time.
  • Jcbu undercover on Exodus 12 - 2 years ago
    Hello God bless everyone just thinking about the passover ,and if it helps to heal people of any diseases no yeast?And when they came out of Egypt God said they would not get the diseases of Egypt if they kept the ordinances of God.

    Good morning. And thank you for sharing God words. blessed you all. But, my comment is that. why is this reading in english only? Thank you for your understanding.
  • Read the bible - In Reply on Exodus 12 - 3 years ago
    Jesus said that if people are not of God they will not hear or understand. The Pharisees where the perfect example .

    We all are learning and growing in the knowledge of God and truth Or have rejected it . Gods will is that all will come to the knowledge of the truth . In time before judgement day . But many refuse .

    But When Jesus appears then all will come to the knowledge of the truth . But as He said be ready for he comes quickly .

    This is my hope the time when I see him as He is , and will be changed to be like him ! Amen

    On the last day .

    Yea, of a truth; the roman catholic church is responsible for renaming pagan gods (i.e. "God the son" aka nimrod & "God the holy spirit" aka semiramis; which are no gods) & pagan festivals to cause unlearned "christians" who don't study the scriptures and do their due dilligence to go to hell.

    If you research the origin of the christ-mass (which literally means the massacre of Christ) aka "christmas" you will find out that it is actually the roman pagan festival called saturnalia. Jesus Christ wasn't born on Dec 25th, nor was his birthday celebrated in Scripture. Dec. 25th is the winter solstice when the Sun-god is worshipped by pagans.

    Likewise Easter is actually a pagan holiday in reverence to ishtar aka diana aka semiramis : the pagan sun goddess of fertility.

    This is why all 501c3 roman/babylonian whorehouses masquerading as "churches" all have easter sunrise service where they face the east.

    This is why Herod celebrated easter.

    But the great whore MYSTERY BABYLON MOTHER OF HARLOTS (aka the roman catholic church) and all her jesui infiltrated daughters don't want you to know that.

    "Take heed that no man deceive you."

    -Jesus Christ
  • Mishael - In Reply on Exodus 12 - 3 years ago
    I believe the word Easter was used to disguise the holiday descending from 'Astarte' or Ishtar?

    Pagan gods worshipped by unbelievers.

    I also heard the Catholic Church was involved in the re-naming...

    Anyone else??

    Comon Chris. :D
  • Evelyn G Massey on Exodus 12 - 3 years ago
    Jesus is our Passover Lamb. Easter is not in the Bible. Where did it start to be observed as Jesus death?
  • Find Nemo1 - In Reply on Exodus 12 - 3 years ago
    JESUS CHRIST IS LORD..... Revelation 20:14

    "And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death."

    ........ Revelation 6:14

    "And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places."

    ... Revelation 21:1

    "And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea."
  • Earl Bowman on Exodus 12 - 3 years ago

    May the Spirit grace you with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

    Exodus 12:1-51 God would deliver his people out of Egypt with one last plague (Death). The people were told to kill a lamb and cover their house with it's blood. Death would passover the houses covered with the blood of the lamb.

    God's word says that the old was a shadow of the new (true). Therefore, Christ's (the true lamb) blood will cover his house (whose house we are, ( Hebrews 3:6). DEATH WILL PASSOVER

    1 Corinthians 15:26 The last enemy to be destroyed is death.

    1 Corinthians 15:55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave where is thy victory?

    Christ is our PASSOVER from death to LIFE.

    Because all the things that Moses said to him that was going to happen, happened.
  • Chris - In Reply on Exodus 12:29 - 3 years ago
    You're almost correct in your understanding of these verses.

    Exodus 10:28: "And Pharaoh said unto him, Get thee from me, take heed to thyself, see my face no more; for in that day thou seest my face thou shalt die." Examining this verse, it appears that Pharaoh is commanding Moses not to appear before him anymore & Moses replies (v29) that he (Moses) will no longer come to Pharaoh.

    But in Exodus 12:31: "And he (Pharaoh) 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." So here, Moses abides by Pharaoh's command to not come before him, but now after this final assault on the Egyptians, it was Pharaoh that called for Moses (& Aaron). So there is no conflict in these verses/directions from Pharaoh: first, he told Moses not to come to him, but did not make it clear that he (Pharaoh) could still summon for Moses to come to him when ordered to do so.

  • Jesse - In Reply on Exodus 12:17 - 4 years ago
    Sir, you've done no wrong. It's not what we eat that defiles us, but what comes out of the mouth ( Matt. 15:11). It's the evil that comes out of the mouth that defiles because it comes from the heart. Also, I want to share something I have learned about the so called greatest commandments spoken in Matthew Chapter 22. Those are not commandments at all. Our English bibles look like they are commands, but in the Greek text, they are not in command form but are statements of fact. Jesus was not commanding us to love Him or our neighbor. What He was saying is that if you have born of His Spirit, you will love the Lord you God, and you will love your neighbor. Not a command but statement of fact.
  • Jesse - In Reply on Exodus 12:17 - 4 years ago
    Sir, you've done no wrong. Jesus said ( Matthew 15:11) that it is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a man, but what comes out. Food we eat does not defile us. It's what comes out of the mouth, the evil a person speaks, because that comes from the heart. Also, I want to share something else here that I have learned. The two "greatest commandments" in Matthew Chapter 22, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God, and love thy neighbor, are not commands. Our bibles make it sound like they are commands, but the Greek text shows that they are not commands. Jesus is not commanding us to love Him or our neighbor. He's giving us a factual statement, you will love, if you have my Spirit in you. Fact!
  • Bob Hilt - In Reply on Exodus 12:17 - 4 years ago
    Someone asked Jesus what was the most important commandment.
    Matthew 22:36 - Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
    Mat 22:37 - Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
    Mat 22:38 - This is the first and great commandment.
    Mat 22:39 - And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
    Mat 22:40 - On these two commandments hang ALL the law and the prophets.
  • Johnny Luces on Exodus 12:17 - 4 years ago
    After 66 years I have come to the awareness of this command. I am not Jewish but I want to follow God commandments as instructed on Exodus 12:17 of the unleavened bread. I have eaten leavened bread this morning and I feel I have already violated the first thing God almighty instructed for me to do. What to do now? After 66 years and knowledge has passed me.. Lord please be merciful on my soul.

  • Fred scanlan - In Reply on Exodus 12 - 4 years ago
    When you confess Him and you recieve his body and blood in faith, your sins are washed away and you are a born again child of God! We In fact are redeemed from sin and death, Christ having become our sacrifice, while fulfilling all righteousness .Our atonement for sin,our "passover lamb". You need only to believe. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Behold I stand at the door and knock. Open your heart and let him abide. Trust in Him and lean not unto your own understanding! All your ways acknowledge HIM! Salvation is yours, and fades not away, it is kept for you! These promises of salvation are sealed,with his BLOOD! Recieve HIM today!
  • G willis on Exodus 12 - 4 years ago
    was Jesus crucifixion before the Passover? if some saying that blood on the door was Jesus blood, and they calling him the Lamb, why was he also being called GOD, and why was Jesus had to protect us Israelite from God who save us from Egypt? Why would we have to demise Jesus to protect his father from us? The Ten Commandment state have no other GOD but him. So how we drag Jesus as a GOD when we are told he is the son. We are made in the image of our father GOD. And this poor lamb is very confuse no wonder we have men pretending to be female, Adam name all the animals, and Jesus was not one of them. Our churches are so confuse today. We need to look at Passover very carefully,and there not 2.
  • Stanjett on Exodus 12 - 4 years ago
    In 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. When Jesus died on the cross, they broke the bones of the two thiefs of the two on either side of him but when they saw that Jesus was already dead, they broke none of his bones.
