We learned that the OT is the hidden NT and the NT, it’s the unveiled OT. God reveals the plan of redemption to Moses, he gives him precise instructions on the procedure. It was the work of Jesus in anticipation, the lamb in question was only a shadow of things to come. Paul said: “Colossians 2:16 Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day.” These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ. Paul said: The Passover and the other feasts were only the shadow of things to come but the reality of these things or the body is in Christ..
But you can’t see my shadow if I’m not here, it attests and affirms my presence. So if the Passover lamb was a shadow, it was that the reality was also there.
Revelation 13:8 and 1 Peter 1:20 the lamb was slain before the foundation of the world. It was a secret of the divinity conceived before the human creation, and which began to reveal itself after the fall. That is why in Genesis God killed the innocent animal in the place of the culprit to cover the sin of man while waiting for the real lamb to come.
Exodus 12:1 The death of the lamb marks a new beginning, a new era, a new season in the life of the people of Israel. God is changing the calendar of his people because he will put an end to his bondage in Egypt. It also marks for us the change of the calendar for you. God Outplays the enemy’s plan to impose his own.
There was similarity between the Passover Lamb and Christ. It will be a flawless lamb, male, one year old. Exodus 12:5 and in Peter 1:19 by the Precious Blood of Christ, like a lamb without blemish without task. The Passover lamb was an antitype type and Christ. The defect, the infirmity, the task, is the symbol of sin while the one who must save mankind cannot have the grain of sin in his blood.
It was to be taken on the 10th day until the fourteenth day, the number ten is related to redemption, Israel came out in the tenth pleas, not eighth, not ninth. God demands one-tenth of our income because one tenth buys the 9th tenth. And he was being observed for four days. The number four is bound to Earth. Rev. 7:1. It speaks of the earthly life of Jesus, put into observation during his earthly life and he did not know or commit sin. 1 Peter 2:22 and 2 Corinthians 5:21
A lamb for every family, the plan of salvation includes the whole family, you will be saved you and your family said Paul to the jailer. If you access this salvation, know that you have the promise for every member of your family. What you have to do is intercede for the salvation of every member of your family. The lamb is huge for you alone, every member of your family to his piece. Don’t be selfish but share the flesh of the lamb with others.
The process requires that everyone can believe in his heart and confess the Lordship of Jesus from his mouth. Romans 10:8-10
V8-9 The flesh of the lamb must be taken roasted in the fire and not half cooked or boiled in water. The Gospel of Jesus is a well-cooked meat, the sky has taken its time to prepare it for us. There are all the ingredients we need for our well being. There are the spices of healing, of deliverance, of restoration, of victory. We must be careful with half-baked meat, or boiled in water, it is gospel diluted, tampered with, twisted, mixed and leading to death. It keeps people away from the work of the Cross, the person of Jesus, the cornerstone. Let it be anathema, he who preaches such a gospel to Paul said.
V11 we had to eat it in a hurry. That is to say: standing up because you cannot eat this roasted meat in the fire and remain a slave. There is the liberating power in this meat. Jesus made it known that the real meat that saves and liberates is his flesh.
“John 6:51 I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats this bread, he will live forever; and the bread I give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
The children of Israel ate the flesh of the animal and Pharaoh could not hold him again. How much more reason you and I, who eat the bread descended from heaven in occurrence the flesh of Jesus. He said it himself, this bread is my flesh. Jesus is the word, so when we receive the gospel, we eat his flesh and he liberates us from bondage. If the son of yours is freed you are truly freedom.
