“A LAMB FOR EVERY HOUSEHOLD”
MERRY TUESDAY BY PARRIS
“Take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their father, a lamb for an house: … the LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses” (Ex. 12:3, 23)
WHAT WOULD OUR CITY LOOK LIKE IF THEY HAD A LAMB FOR EVER HOUSE? HAVE YOU PARTAKEN OF THE LAMB?
John the Baptist speaks out to us today-“Behold the Lamb of God which takes away the sins of the world!” John 1:29
Of all the Old Testament sacrifices, there is none that gives a clearer or richer revelation of the person and work of our Lord than the Passover. The Paschal Lamb aimed at deliverance, not of the individuals, but of families. He is enough for all of us and there is ample supply in the Lamb! He is covering us and our families!
Christ, our Passover, is slain for us. Christ, the Lamb of God, is still “a lamb for an house”! His blood may still be sprinkled upon the door that the destroyer enter not. There is a new and better covenant, and with the precious blood of Christ, the principle still holds good! Our faith has divine warrant and will be rewarded with the divine blessing. Our prayers avail much and secures us divine influence. Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us! I Cor. 5:7 and 1 Peter 1:18-20 tells us that “we’ve not been redeemed with corruptible things but the precious blood of the Lamb”.
One more to remember is that every year the believing Israelite was to sprinkle the doorposts with blood, so testifying that it was only in the blood that he and his house could stand before God; he was also to write upon these same blood-sprinkled doorposts the words of God’s law. Deut. 6:7-9 So every day when our feet hit the floor we can apply this revelation day by day, in faith and prayer, in teaching and living. There is a Lamb available for every house! The Holy Spirit will reveal in His power all the truths that cluster round the promises of God for they are alive and active. I believe that the same God that showed up in Katrina will meet us again! I was visibly spoken to during that season and a new season is upon us!
What makes this Lamb so special? Well in the book of Revelations 5:5-6 it says, “I behold in the midst of the throne stood as a Lamb as it had been slain, having 7 horns and 7 eyes, which are the 7 spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. He is the all seeing all sufficient God for each of the situations that we face.
