Embrace this (forced) Opportunity!

So much has been said about timing with this Pesach. Most expect there's a bigger reason/meaning behind the plague coming at this time. This video is brilliant! Yah is calling us back to our beginnings; to the things that matter most: family and friends. "For such a time as this" may we hear the the Father clearly, and know that we are loved. Let us stand in bold righteousness for the things that matter most; God and family. And let us never forget to thank Him for bringing us 'back in' again. Amen!!

The Firstborn

The stakes were incredibly high during the Egyptian quarantine and subsequent Passover. If the blood of the lamb were not placed on the door posts, above the door and beneath the door, the firstborn male in each family would die, and a family’s lineage could potentially be cut off. The symbolism and heritage of the Seder Passover meal is rich. It is not only a time for introspection, but also a time for declaration. The proclamation on the door posts had to be made for death to pass over. The celebration of Passover in remembrance of that historic evening hinges upon the unbroken lamb shank on the table and the blood of the lamb upon the door posts. It was after all, the death of the lamb that was necessary for the death of the firstborn male to be passed over and his life spared... and potentially, his family lineage to be preserved. It is not only a time to remember the goodness and mercy of G-d in our own lives, it is also time to proclaim the goodness and mercy of G-d to our neighbors and to the nations.
