Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

January 26 - Evening

"On that same night I will pass through Egypt and strike down every firstborn of both people and animals, and
I will bring judgment on all the gods of Egypt.
I am the Lord. The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are, and when I see the blood,
I will pass over you. No destructive plague will
touch you when I strike Egypt."

- Exodus 12:12-13

The Sign of Yahweh’s Pass Over


The Hebrews that feared God were to slaughter a lamb at twilight and place some of the blood on the sides and top of their doorframes. God had always known where his people lived and the plagues had not affected them. But, now the blood was to be a “sign” (‘ot), which, like to first three signs Moses showed Pharaoh, would provide information, insight and understanding that, if responded to in faith, would provide mercy and deliverance. The blood was a visible public display to serve as a sign to everyone (believer or skeptic, Hebrew or Egyptian) that Yahweh had destroyed the firstborn of those without the blood, but had “passed over” those with the sign of the blood that had been applied at his command and in agreement with his word.

When the Lord saw the blood of this sign applied to the door frame he would “pass over” (pasah, verb, or pesah, the noun translated “Passover”).

God would strike the firstborn throughout Egypt that refused to apply the blood of the slaughtered lamb on the door frame. The death of the firstborn would not only include human families, but also the animal kingdom. And, since many of the images of the gods of Egypt were portrayed as creatures of the animal kingdom, the death of the firstborn among the animals would be an attack and a judgment on those Egyptian gods.  No Egyptian god would escape this judgment and each of them would suffer the consequences of not being able to protect the image of their deity and symbol of their power.

  Christian Quote from Church History

"Is what you're living for worth Christ dying for?"

- Leonard Revenhill, Epitaph

Something to Ponder??

Jesus seemed to warn of the Pagan tendency of “clergy” separating themselves from the common “laity” by
wearing “special” clothing or accessories to
distinguishing themselves. "Beware of the teachers of the law. They like to walk around in flowing robes and love to be greeted in the marketplaces and have the most important seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at banquets."
(Luke 20:46)

During the first two centuries clothing was not used to separate the " ministers" from the ones who were to support the "ministers." Clerical "dressing up" for church began in the 300's AD when the clergy distinguished themselves from the laity by adopting the dress of the Roman government officials. Today the "clergy" often seeks to separate themselves from
the laity with robes or suits
or some other accessory
worn publicly.

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Anazopureo  (Gr) – “fan into flame” or “stir up” (Eng) - anazopureo  is Greek word that is a compound word with the addition of a prefix.  These are the three parts:

Ana, a prefix that means “up”
Zoe meaning “life”
Pur meaning “fire”

Together these words mean “to make the fire higher by bringing it life” or “rekindle the fire.” Anazopureo is used one time in the GNT when Paul writes to Timothy,
“I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you.” (2 Timothy 1:6)


The Greek text of Romans 13:3 has been found in two different mosaics in Caesarea on the Mediterranean coast of Israel.  The mosaics were placed as decorations, and as reminders, in the floor of a large public building believed to be a praetorium or an archive from 350-450 AD. The Greek text in these two mosaics is the same as our Greek texts used to translate Bibles today saying:
“If you would not fear the authorities, do that which is good.”

Confession to Action   Facts and Information
Do I fear situations that do not yet exist?
I will seek wisdom for planning and preparing for the future.
I will focus on doing what is right and just today.
And, I will trust God has been guiding me through my past.
  "Like a fluttering sparrow or a darting swallow,
    an undeserved curse does not come to rest."
- Proverbs 26:2
