The Blood of the Lamb

And they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel of the houses where they eat it.

Exodus 12:7

Matthew Henry writes

The blood of sprinkling is the saint’s security in times of common calamity; it is this that marks them for God, pacifies conscience, and gives them boldness of access to the throne of grace, and so becomes a wall of protection round them and a wall of partition between them and the children of this world.

Due to the current lockdown we are told to stay-at-home, but let us not become bitter or rebellious. Could this be a time of keeping God’s children safe? Does God want to wean us from the world and/or some of its bad influences? Could it be that He builds a wall of protection around us? 

I’m thinking of Noah and his family …

So those that entered, male and female of all flesh, went in as God had commanded him; and the LORD shut him in.

Genesis 7:16

Why were they shut in? For their protection so that the Flood which destroyed every living thing would not harm them. They were safe inside the Ark.

There are other accounts in the Bible that reveal how people were inside and therefore saved from great harm. Rahab and her household, for example. (Joshua 2) They were saved; however, only the ones who obeyed and stayed inside the home. Whosoever would go outside would not be save (verse 19).

Let us seek counsel and encouragement in the Word of God.
