1. The Lord God (IAM) spoke to Moses and Aaron in Kemet. (Egypt) This month, for you is the first of months; You shall make it the first month of the year. Speak to the whole community of Israel and say to them: On the 10th day of this month let every Man take a lamb or a kid one for each household.
6. Your lamb or kid must be without blemish. A yearling male. You must keep it safe until the 14th day of the month. In the assembly of Israel, You will slaughter the victim between dusk and dark. They must take some of the blood and smear it on the two door posts and the lintel of every house in which they eat the lamb. On that night they shall eat the flesh roasted on the fire, they shall eat it with unleavened cakes and bitter herbs.
11. You must eat it in urgent haste, It is the Lord's (IAM) Passover. On that night I shall pass through the land of Kemet (Egypt) and kill every first born of man and beast. Thus will I execute the judgement, I the Lord, against all the gods of Kemet. (Egypt) And as for you, the blood will be a sign on the houses in which you are: When I see the blood I will pass over you; The mortal blow shall not touch you, when I strike the land of Kemet. (Egypt)
14. You shall keep this day as a day of Remembrance, you shall make it a pilgrim feast and keep it from generation to generation for all time. The Book of Exodus Chapter 12 The New English Bible humbly paraphrase.
Take time to read the chapter, meditate and then pray on the reading of the words. Asking for understanding.
It is with this that PASSOVER begins. A terrible act resulting in the liberation of an Oppressed Beloved of God. (IAM) One must remember that while the Liberation was for One and All Equally given by the God (IAM) Man, still had to do his part. He was expected to have Faith in the Word of God (IAM) as it came through his servants, then act by performing the Ritual. The work or Ritual acted as a sign of Obedience and Submission under God. (IAM)
To my families, regardless of Religion or Faith, or lack there of, Be Blessed! Happy Passover!
BE Mindful! BE Prayerful! BE Careful!
