Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ. Exodus 13:8-10
13:8 "And you shall tell your son in that day, saying, 'This is done because of what the LORD did for me when I came up from Egypt.'
13:9 "It shall be as a sign to you on your handand as a memorial between your eyes, that the LORD's law may be in your mouth; for with a strong hand the LORD has brought you out of Egypt.
13:10 "You shall therefore keep this ordinance in its season from year to year.
Passover or repentance must be a real sign which can be seen and heard in our life. There are three signs of Passover as follows
- The sign on hand.
It means the repentance in our deeds.
- The memorial between eyes.
It means the repentance in the mind or heart.
- The sign in the lips.
It means the repentance in the saying, so there is the true teaching Word in the lips or mouth.
2:7 "For the lips of a priest should keep knowledge, And people should seek the law from his mouth; For he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts.
The facts found in it are saying the true words, being honest, testifying, and worshiping God with a broken heart.
95:6 Oh come, let us worship and bow down; Let us kneel before the LORD our Maker.
95:7 For He is our God, And we are the people of His pasture, And the sheep of His hand. Today, if you will hear His voice:
There are three things about worshiping God as follows:
- Worshiping the Lord, the Maker.
It means that we confess that we are only the clay, but we willingly worship God to be in the hands of the Maker.
As a result, we get the power of creation, namely the clay is created to be the vessel of God's glory. We are used in the revival of Holy Spirit at the latter rain to glorify God. Someday, we will also be glorified with the Lord forever.
The more we are used by God, the more beautiful our life is. It continues to the most beautiful one on the glorious clouds.
- Worshiping God, the Great Shepherd.
It means that we confess that we are only like the sheep for slaughter which is powerless, but we surrender in His hands.
8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
8:36 As it is written: "For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter."
8:37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
As a result, we get the following things:
- The power of God's protection. We can be strong and of good courage regardless of anything we must face. We are not disappointed or hopeless. We do not leave God. We also do not commit any sins, but keep faithful and fervent in spirit, doing the service and ministry to God regardless of anything we must face.
- The power of God's preservation. Physically, we are preserved, so we do not lack of anything. We always give thanks to God. Spiritually, we are preserved until all things are calm, easy, and light.
- The power of God's guidanceto the last shepherding in the New Jerusalem. He is guiding us while wiping away all of our tears until someday there is no tear at all.
7:17 "for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."
- Worshiping Jesus, the King, or the Heavenly Bridegroom and shouting for joy "Alleluia".
19:6 And I heard, as it were, the voice of a great multitude, as the sound of many waters and as the sound of mighty thunderings, saying, "Alleluia! For the Lord God Omnipotent reigns!
19:7 "Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready."
We confess that we are the weak bride who is full of blemish.
5:25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her,
5:26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word,
5:27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.
We live in the hands of the Lord or the Heavenly Bridegroom which wash and sanctify our life. It continues until we do not stumble in words anymore, but only say "Alleluia" to welcome His second coming.
God blesses you.
