Passover Lamb & Blood on the Doorposts & Lintel

Now YHVH said to Moses, “One more plague I will bring on Pharaoh and on Egypt; after that he will let you go”…. God said, “This month shall be the beginning of months for you…Take a lamb…for each household” (Exd.11-12). The lamb had to be a male lamb. It could not have any spot, blemish or defect. This means the lamb could have no crooked teeth, no defective ear or an eye, no disease, no club foot, nor a broken leg. The lamb was to be perfect, without blemish.

The selection of the lamb was done on the 10th day of the 1st month, according to the Scripture (Exodus 12:3). Each family was to keep the lamb in their home for four days, inspecting the lamb to make sure there was no blemish. I’m sure all the children loved having that lamb in their home.

Then on the day of preparation, on the day the lamb was to be slaughtered and prepared, on Passover – the 14th day of the 1st month of God’s Biblical Calendar – the family went outside and the father sacrificed the lamb.

Lambs are silent before their shearers. Lambs are silent when they are sacrificed (Isaiah 53:7). Lambs don’t cry out or squirm. That’s the way God made lambs…so gentle and meek. They are not like pigs. Have you ever tried to hold. a pig? Pigs squeal and cry …but a lamb will not make a sound.

On Passover, the 14th day of the 1st month, the lamb’s blood was put on the doorpost and the lintel of the home. The lamb- the innocent lamb- died as a substitute sacrifice so the first born would not die.

The innocent lamb died instead of the firstborn. The lamb’s blood was applied so death would “pass over”. Do you think the children cried when the innocent lamb died?

Yeshua, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world

Yeshua was perfect. He is the only man who has ever lived who was perfect…the only man who never sinned. He was the perfect lamb… the Lamb of God chosen by the Father. When the prophet, John the Baptist, saw Yeshua… he declared Yeshua was “the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29).

Yeshua came to Bethany six days before Passover. He had Shabbat dinner on Friday night with Lazarus & his sisters. The next day He rode into Jerusalem on a colt on the 10th day of the 1st month of God’s Biblical Calendar. It was the day the Passover lambs were selected.

John12-1-13

 

The whole crowd of disciples began to praise God and shout joyfully: “BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD” …but there were others who did not recognize the time of visitation. He was the LAMB OF GOD chosen by the Father. The Sadducees & Pharisees “inspected” Him for four (4) days…but they could not find any fault in Him. Then they turned Him over to Pilate…but Pilate said, “I find no guilt in Him… I find no guilt in Him… Take Him yourselves and crucify Him, for I find no guilt in Him” (John 18:38;19: 4-6). Yeshua was the spotless Lamb.

Yeshua, the Lamb of God, was hung on a wooden stake on Passover.

It was the 14th day of the 1st month of the Biblical Calendar and YHVH provided His Son, Yeshua. The LAMB OF GOD hung on a wooden stake on the Mount in Jerusalem, the place called “YHVH will provide” (Gen 22:14).

Yeshua was crucified at Passover. It was the Appointed Times of YHVH.

And when the priest was offering the Passover lamb, the substitute sacrifice… It was at this same time… that Yeshua looked up to heaven and said, “It is finished”. The innocent LAMB OF GOD died as the substitute sacrifice at 3pm in the afternoon.

YHVH had given specific instructions:
“your lamb shall be a male…without blemish” (Exd.12:5). “you are not to break a bone of it” (Exd12:46).

Yeshua – the LAMB OF GOD- was without blemish, without sin. Yet, as it is written, “The LORD has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him. He was oppressed and He was afflicted,

Yet He did not open His mouth; Like a lamb that is led to slaughter…He had done no violence,

Nor was there any deceit in His mouth” (Isa.53:6-7).

Not one of the bones of the Passover lamb was to be broken. And so, too, with Yeshua, the LAMB OF GOD. None of His bones were broken. “So the soldiers came… when they saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs. But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear…For these things came to pass to fulfill the Scripture, “Not a bone of Him shall be broken” (John 19:33-36).

Read what God spoke through the prophets – hundreds of years before it ever happened. Yeshua also told about these events before they occurred.

It was God’s plan from long ago that Yeshua would be crucified and die for the sin of all people. He’s the “Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world”.

Did Satan defeat God when Yeshua was crucified on the cross? No. It was God’s plan that Yeshua would die. It was through dying that Yeshua paid for our sins. So that even today, by faith, we can apply His blood to the doorposts of our hearts to cause death to “pass over”.
