SIGNIFICANCE OF PASSOVER & THE CORONAVIRUS

"The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are. When I see the blood, I will pass over you. So there will be no plague among you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt." Exodus 12:13 The Jewish holiday Passover begins this Wednesday at sunset. The first Passover occurred the night the death angel passed through the land of Egypt where the Hebrew people were slaves. God instructed the head of each household among them to take the blood of a lamb and apply it to the doorposts and lintel of every Hebrew home. When the death angel passed over Egypt every home where the blood had been applied was spared. No death came near their dwelling.
Psalm 91:9-10 "For you have made the Lord, my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place. No evil will befall you, nor will any plague come near your dwelling."
Jesus became our Passover lamb and his blood applied by faith to our lives covers and protects us from evil and plague. During the eight days of Passover 2020 find a time to receive the Lord's Supper and/or a Seder meal to remember and commemorate the sacrificial lamb slain and his precious blood. There is power in the blood and it will never lose its power to save and protect. The coronavirus is no match for His blood.
