Text: Exodus 12:3-8
“He also brought them out with silver and gold, And there was none feeble among His tribes.”
It is not strange for multitudes of people to move out of a country en masse but it is strange not to have one weak or sick among them? The Bible records that the exodus of about 2.4 million Israelites out of Egypt was with none feeble, weak or sick among them! “…And there was none feeble among His tribes.” (Psa 105:37).The GNT says “…; and all of them were healthy and strong.” Wow! Does it mean there were no old men and women among them or any elderly bending over a walking stick? This is nothing short of a miracle! A wonder indeed!
Now, here is the secret.
“Then they shall eat the flesh on that night; roasted in fire, with unleavened bread and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.”
(Exodus 12:8). This was the meal the Israelites ate on the Passover night of their exodus from Egypt. This was a foreshadow of the sacrifice of Jesus, our Passover Lamb (1 Cor 5:7). He was without sin yet roasted under the lawless hands and cruelty of man. He was bruised, battered and broken. Likewise, on the Passover night, as Jesus ate with His disciples, He took bread, broke it and gave to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you..” (Luke 22:19). The point is this, the meal which the Israelites ate on that Passover night only pointed to the bread, the communion of the body of Christ which we break today (1 Cor 10:17). Therefore, if a foreshadow was so powerful that none was weak, sick or bent over among such staggering population, how much more will the real bread do!
Friends, take advantage of the miracle bread. Desire a miracle, discern His body, eat often and with faith to live strong, healthy and long. You have been redeemed to live a life of wonders in the world. Hallelujah!
1.Father, thank You for redeeming me from weakness and sickness to live strong, healthy and long in Jesus name.
2. Father, thank You for offering me the Passover meal, in the communion of the body of Christ to live a life of wonder in this world in Jesus name.
1. Jesus, our Passover Lamb was broken that I may be made whole and cut short that I may live long.
2. Jesus endured pain and sorrow that I may enjoy life and good health.
