HOW A DAY MARRED BY DEATH is ACTUALLY ALL ABOUT LIFE!
We are in the time of Passover. Some have recently finished it, others are observing this weekend (April 16, 2022). One thing the story demonstrates is YHVH's immense focus on life. How is that possible in a story all about death?
First, YHVH instructed the people beforehand how to spare life so that none would be lost. It is only human rebellion which resulted in death. This is the same condition we all face as well. We have ALL fallen short and defiantly rebelled against God. Therefore the wage we have earned for our work is death.
Second, Passover is an amazing picture YHVH offers us so we can better understand the work of the Messiah on that same day generations later. A work designed to once again bring life to dying and rebellious people.
You see Passover isn't about death, it's about offering life for all who have ears to hear and hearts to obey Him alone.
Trust Him, Follow Him, find LIFE in Him! In the sections below we want to provide you links to teachings, resources, and ideas to observe Passover with your families and friends. These are not all Lantern Media resources, but we have found them to be valuable to our study and pray they edify you as well. We encourage you to test everything you see and hear according to Scripture.
