Passover

God’s intervention in history
Adapted from the writing of Rev. Malcolm Hedding

Passover is an amazing story of miracles and deliverance, but that first Passover also has broader lessons for us today.

God is interested in the destiny of nations demonstrated by His great acts in history according to His timing, that either bless or judge nations for their righteousness or unrighteousness. Egypt for example suffered a catastrophic blow during the first great Passover.

God hears the cry of the oppressed and enslaved. The Israelites had suffered enormously under Egyptian tyranny until God said: “Enough is enough!” The same holds true for our world today.

God makes His name great in the earth by His mighty deeds. The wonderful Passover story has been known through books, articles and movies. The same is true of many events in the history of His people, such as the miraculous establishment of the State of Israel 60 years ago, or her deliverance in the many wars she has already endured. God is great! This is the message!

The God of the Bible is not just involved in temporal affairs. His heart is for the eternal destiny of every man, woman and child. Thus, 2000 years ago at Passover, His only begotten Son died on a cross to redeem the world. Blood was spilt, atonement was made and the door to heaven opened, signified by the veil being split from top to bottom in the temple.

Today, the nation of Israel still awaits temporal and eternal deliverance. God will not fail her and He will, as of old, intervene and confound the world yet again with another mighty Passover deliverance.

The ancient Israelites suffered as slaves in Egypt for many years while waiting for God’s intervention. But all the time He was busy behind the scenes preparing the way for that great and awesome day.

So today we should not be discouraged or lose faith as Israel suffers war and injustice. We can be assured that God has not forgotten His people and is at work in history preparing the way for their deliverance.
