The Judgment

September 14th, 2011


Exodus 12:21-30

In the story of the Exodus, God made a distinction between the people of Egypt and the people of Israel (Exod. 11:7). Another way to say this might be that God judged between those who were his children, and those who belonged to Pharaoh. When the children of Israel applied the blood of the Passover Lamb on the doorposts in obedience to the word of the Lord, they were identifying themselves as children of God. And when the time came when the Lord executed judgment on the land and all firstborn sons were killed by “the destroyer,” the children of God were saved.

There is a day coming when all people from all places and all times will stand before the Lord in judgment. The children of God, those who have been marked by the blood of the Lamb, will be saved and enter into eternal life. Death will pass over them.

In the great and glorious day of the Lord’s return, will you be found to be marked by the blood of the Lamb? Will he know you as one of his children?
