Exodus 12:11

This is how you are to eat it: with your cloak tucked into your belt, your sandals on your feet and your staff in your hand. Eat it in haste; it is the Lord’s Passover.

  1. The subject of miracles is what intrigued me with this verse. Scientists and anthropologists, who don’t believe, have “logical” explanations that satisfy their own intellects as to how miracles could have occurred un-supernaturally, or that is to say “naturally” without having to even consider that God manipulated our dimension supernaturally in order to communicate sovereignty. It’s a bit frustrating for the believer to hear these dismissive, mocking theories. But beside those people, I would like to pose a question for believers – do you think the Lord uses science and nature in His miracles? Could He have protected His believers by giving them a preventative and protective “recipe” from the plague that the Destroyer was bringing to Egypt? And furthermore, if an unbeliever heard about the “recipe”, could they have been protected also?


  2. That last part about “eat it quickly” reminds me of 1 Corinthians 11:22. Paul seems to be saying to remember the reason you are gathering, remember Jesus, remember serving each other, remember His blood when you drink the wine… don’t just gather to have a party and socialize… make sure everyone gets a portion… it’s the Lord’s Supper. And here in this verse it is the “Lord’s Passover”… it’s not a feast per say, it’s a command – along with being girded and ready with your shoes on and your staff in your hand… it’s not a time to relax, it’s a time for diligence and preparedness.
