Transcript

  • 1. Linked!! • The Moses Story & The Jesus Story are linked by PASSOVER… • How so? • Step into the time machine…
  • 2. There’s a new Pharaoh in town… Moses Chosen – And Sent… • New Pharaoh decides there are TOO many Hebrews – Enslaves them and makes them build all the Egyptian stuff (pyramids, Sphinx, etc) – For 430 years!!!!! – Decides to kill all male Hebrew children; but Moses rescued But Lord… I’m a nobody! • God ready to rescue His How can you people use me? – Exodus 3:7-9 – Appears to Moses in a burning bush that doesn’t burn • God chooses Moses to lead His people out of slavery… – Exodus 3:10 – Sends Moses to Pharaoh
  • 3. Just like God said… 10 Plagues, ending with death • God directs Moses to tell Pharaoh to “Let My people go” • God hardens Pharaoh's heart and Pharaoh says “No” • With each “No”, God brings a new plague: – Water Turned to Blood – Frogs Over the Land – Gnats – Flies – Egyptian Cattle Die – Skin Boils – Heavy Hail – Locusts – 3 days of total Darkness – Death of Firstborn • By the way: Who in here is a firstborn child?
  • 4. • Freedom FROM Spirit of death - granted through blood sacrifice of lamb without blemish. • The First Passover – When I see the blood… – Uncovered by the blood of the lamb = _______ – Covered by the blood of the lamb = ________
  • 5. • In the Seen… – God freeing His people using Moses’ leadership – The Hebrews commanded by God to celebrate Passover every year on anniversary of God’s famous rescue of His people. • Hebrews would celebrate Passover some 1,400 times before Jesus came on the scene. • In the Unseen… – God is setting the stage to free mankind from the bondage of sin and death once and for all! – He would send another perfect “lamb” for that blood sacrifice…
  • 6. What did we just get done talking about? Remember the First Passover? • One of the many names of Jesus = The Lamb of God – John 1:29 – “Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” • He was the perfect sacrifice and Who’s blood can cover the “doorposts & lintels” of your heart! • Those covered by the blood of THE Lamb = NO (eternal, spiritual) DEATH! • By the way, when did Jesus GIVE UP His life? – During the annual Passover celebration – Coincidence? NOPE! • Jesus paid the price to redeem us (buy us back) from the enemy
  • 7. A Review: The Task At Hand - The Chasm • God longs for the intimate relationship with us that He had in the Garden of Eden. • The Problem: We can’t have that relationship in our current sinful state…we are broken; the relationship is fractured by sin… – Sinful man can’t re-enter perfect & holy relationship with God on their own, unless a blood ransom is paid to “buy back” or “redeem” the relationship. • God’s love for us motivates Him to radical action…by giving up…
  • 8. The Way, The Truth, The Life
  • 9. JESUS IS THE • Jesus paid the price that WE owed (He died in our place); • Jesus bridges the gap as only He can – He “parachuted in” behind the lines of enemy occupied territory to save us/rescue us!!
  • 10. • John 14:20 - The UNION! – “In that day you will know that • I am in My Father, • And you in Me, • And I in you.” • Ephesians 1:13 – “In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation – having also believed, • You were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, • Who is given as a pledge of our inheritance…” – You were adopted into His Holy Family • John 10:27-29 – No one will snatch them out of My hand. – My Father, greater than all, gave them to Me. No one can snatch them out of His hand either.
  • 11. • Jesus defeated Satan on the cross. • Jesus died in our place as our substitute • It is not enough to just know this is true, one must “open the gift” and “accept the contents” as their own. • If accept this free gift of salvation, you are adopted in to God’s family and He puts His Holy Spirit in YOU! Yes you!! – This is a mystery – but true – “Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27)
