Exo 12:42 and Matt 26:31 "A Night of Watching" (February 11)

Exodus 12:27 God passed over the houses of the people of Israel in Egypt, when he struck the Egyptians but spared our houses.’” And the people bowed their heads and worshiped.

The 10th Plague---what every mother dreads to hear---your son has no life in him.  Final breath. 

And Pharaoh finally breathes: "Go." 

Mass Exodus. 

Exodus 12:42 "It was a night of watching by the LORD..."
This same night is kept throughout generations.  A Night of Watching.

And I just caught my breath as I read the NT reading for today. 
Passover with Jesus. 
Breaking of bread with His betrayers: 
Judas who did not repent
Peter who repented with bitter tears.
Matt 26:31 "You will ALL fall away."
We all struggle with sin.
What will we do with what we see this day?

Passover. Please do not pass over my house this day.


  1. "pass me not, o gentle Savior, hear my hungry plea, while on others thou are calling, do not pass me by.

    May we each one call out to Him, may we not deny Him, this day. May we see Him everywhere we go in all we do this day.

  2. AMAZING today--the perfect alignment of Scripture to see the tenth plague, the passover instituted and then Jesus eating the Passover meal just before He walked to the Garden. I am so moved by His provision for our souls. And before the rooster crows in the next light, we betray Him, though we swear with our lives we won't. Forgive us our sins; for they are many.

    Heart of my heart, "Behold the Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world."
