WEDNESDAY, JUNE 27
Scripture: Exodus 12:22-27
In Exodus 12:22-27 Moses initiated the Passover, that later became the celebration of communion. In that Passover he was instructed what to do. This marked his deliverance from all the bondage of Egypt. God told him to take a lamb and kill it. Then to take some hyssop, dip the hyssop in the blood of the lamb, strike the doorposts and strike the lentil. This became a picture of the Lord passing through to strike the Egyptians. When He saw the blood on the lentil and the doorpost, the Lord passed over that home and did not allow the destroyer to enter that house to strike the inhabitants. Passover or communion is the initiation of covenant judgment on the enemy that brings us freedom and deliverance from everything that was experienced in Egypt. That was God’s initial purpose. Has anything been stolen from God’s people through religious tradition. Yes! What does religion do today? Religion today says, ‘Wait a minute. Jesus is a nice guy, He always turns the other cheek. He never strikes anybody. That is Old Testament. That is not New Testament.’ Tradition has made the Word of none effect. Let’s trace it through.
