The Daily Nosh – Exodus 12: 21-23
Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel and said to them, “Go, select lambs for your families and slaughter the Passover lamb. You are to take a bundle of hyssop, dip it in the blood that is in the basin, and apply it to the crossbeam and two doorposts with the blood from the basin. None of you may go out the door of his house until morning. Adonai (the Lord) will pass through to strike down the Egyptians, but when He sees the blood on the crossbeam and the two doorposts, Adonai will pass over that door, and will not allow the destroyer to come into your houses to strike you down.” (TLV) Exodus 12: 21-23
Nosh: As ancient Israel experienced in Egypt, we all encounter seasons of trouble and heartache. In those difficult times, receiving and following God’s guidance and instruction is critical. As we see in the above account, obedience to God’s direction brought divine protection, favor and blessing while disobedience led to negative and devastating consequences.
