The Passover Lamb Being for the Household

The Passover Lamb Being for the Household

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Bible Verses~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Exodus 12:3 Speak to all the assembly of Israel, saying, on 
the tenth of this month each man shall take a lamb according 
to his fathers' house, a lamb for a household. (7) And they 
shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts 
and on the lintel of the houses in which they eat it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`Words of Ministry~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Passover lamb was clearly given to a household, not to 
an individual. Again we see the importance of a household 
before God. The Passover lamb had to do with a household; it 
was not an individual matter. A lamb was not prepared for 
each person, but for each household. The blood struck on the 
doorpost and side posts was to protect the whole household. 
The angel of destruction would pass over a whole household.

It is marvelous to see that the salvation prepared by the 
Lord Jesus Christ is not for an individual alone but for the 
whole household, just like the Passover lamb. If one man 
eats the lamb, it means that only he is being saved. But if 
the whole household eats the lamb, it means that the whole 
household is being saved. Salvation is for the whole 
household. The whole household eats the lamb, and similarly 
the whole household strikes the blood. The whole household 
enjoys these things together. May God open our eyes to see 
that salvation is a matter of the whole household, not 
individuals.
