What did it mean for those who didn’t lose their firstborn when the Angel of Death “passed over”
their homes on its romp of death in Egypt 3500 years ago? Once again, the world faces a very

Looming large over everything else was the overpowering presence of the state in seriously
complicating day to day life for the People of God. Fetching their own straw burdened God’s

As the Living God made a way for the Hebrews in Goshen, the Lord will make a way for the Follower
of Christ. Hardships yes, but not struck down (2 Cor 7-11). We have the promise of God as valid for
us as it was for Israel, “I will never leave you nor forsake you says the Lord (Deut31:6-8, 1 Chron
28:20, Heb 13:5). Believe Him, trust Him. His Word is true, and He is faithful.

intervention in which every bastion of worldly strength was dealt a devastating defeat and crumbled
under the hand of God.
Darkness or evil has in itself the seeds of its own destruction; it cannot
prevail, it must ultimately fall. Believers, look up! Your redemption draws near!
