Exodus Ch.11 & 12

Abba Father, we thank you for all that You are doing in the lives of your children all over the world. May the entrance of Your Word bring light as we read and share it together. We ask that you speak to everyone who reads this post Holy Spirit. May You bless all reading these posts and give them the courage and strength they need to walk into their different promised land of blessing In the Name of Jesus. I thank you Father that every representation of Egypt in the lives of your children is destroyed now and forever In the Name of Jesus, Amen.


Chapter 11 starts off with the LORD annoucing to Moses and Aaron the death that was eminent on all the first borns of Egypt. Death of the first borns was the tenth and final plague before the children of Israel left Egypt.

Exodus 11:6-7 reads, "Then there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as was not like it before, nor shall be like it again. But against none of the children of Israel shall a dog move its tongue, against man or beast, that you may know that the LORD does make a difference between the Egyptians and Israel."


Chapter 12, starts off with more instructions and regulations provided to the children of Israel from the LORD. Some of these instructions included, asking the Egyptians for articles of silver and gold (Exodus 12:35) and also observing the Passover (Exodus 12:1-23). You may wonder why they had to observe the Passover before leaving Egypt. However, I believe observing the Passover was an act of faith for the children of Israel because it was the first representation of freedom from bondage. One of the acts of the Passover was they had to smear the blood of a male lamb without blemish from their sheep or goats (Exodus 12:5) on the door posts and lintels (Exodus 12:23). This blood of the lamb would act as a 'mark of covering' that distinguished the children of Israel from the Egyptians (Exodus 12:23).

Till today, just like the children of Israel, we have the precious blood of the Holy Lamb of God, Jesus Christ that is always cleasning, protecting and covering us ( Hebrews 9:13-15) from the devices of the enemy.


It is important to note that the Passover was to always be observed by the children of Israel and future generations. Exodus 12:26-27 says, "And it shall be, when your children say to you, 'What do you mean by this service? "that you shall say, 'It is the Passover sacrifice of the LORD, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt when He struck the Egyptians and delivered our households." So the people bowed their heads and worshipped."


At the appointed time and after the children of Israel had obeyed the instructions of the LORD, Exodus 12:29 tells us, "And it came to pass at midnight that the LORD struck all the first born in the land of Egypt, from the first born of Pharaoh who sat on his throne to the first born of the captive who was born in the dungeon and all the firstborn of livestock."

We see a complete change of Pharaoh's heart. With the previous plagues, he was hesistant and stubborn but now the LORD had humbled his heart to obey His Word. He then asks Moses and Aaron to depart from Egypt with everything including herds and animals, leaving nothing behind. Thankfully, the children of Israel were already prepared by the LORD for this moment and they departed from Egypt that very night (Exodus 12:37-38).


In addition, Pharaoh asked Moses to bless him before leaving the land (Exodus 12:32). Pharaoh requesting Moses to bless him is an admission to himself on behalf of the Egyptians that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob was far superior and incomparable to the small gods that his diviners worshipped.


It happened exactly as the LORD had spoken to Abraham in a vision that the children of Israel left the foreign land (Genesis 15:13). That is, "Now the sojourn of the children of Israel who lived in Egypt was four hundred and thirty years. And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years - on that very same day - it came to pass that all the armies of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt." When you read this Word, the emphasis and repetition of the same of the words shows that God was not even a minute late to fulfill His Word spoken to Abraham.

Friend, sometimes unpleasant situations persist not because you are not praying enough but because God is watching His Word to perform it in your life (Jeremiah 1:12). Continue believing, praying and trusting the LORD. Hold onto His Word because He is faithful.

Psalm 138:2 shows us the power of God's Word and it reads, "I shall worship in the temple of Your holiness and I shall give thanks to your Name for your kindness and for your truth, because You have extolled your Word above every name. (Aramaic Bible in Plain English).

The LORD's glory concerning your life will not be diminished by any negative circumstance and His timing will be perfect.


I'll end with this Word in Joshua 21:45 NKJV

"Not a word failed of any good thing which the LORD had spoken to the house of Israel.

All came to pass."

AMEN. THANK YOU LORD.
