Pastor, author and Bible teacher Alan Wright.

The seeming lack of freedom of having to wear compression stockings pales in comparison to the lack of freedom you experience it again.

The shrill shrieking mothers and fathers running out of their homes, crying out, help, help my child on story and it is full of very very specific instructions for the Hebrew people must thought about instructions. It will become part of a festival that is celebrated on and on and centuries ahead by the Hebrew people. Instructions were very clear that every Hebrew family was on the 10th day of Nisan, the first month of the recount. The 10th day of this on to take a lamb into his household a could be a lamb or goat in very specific that had to be a male had to be a year old and had that the unblemished have no defect is going to some of your livestock. It was sickly and going to die anyway or something like that. If that whatever is most precious and all of this is a powerful beautiful picture of something that God's going to do 1500 years later for real in the person of Jesus, the one that John the baptizer called the Lamb who takes away the center world and then after having this laminate household days on the 14th day on this on an twilight. They were to slaughter the Lamb and then to roasted needed with unleavened bread that is not to be time for you to wait around for the yeast arrives and bitter errors then later when they celebrate the Passover still tell their children. This reminds us of the bitterness of slavery.

Both these things to remind you that when God moves to deliver you and set you free. You don't stand around and think about it you take it and you move on and you never forget the bitterness of slavery because you never relish the beauty of them. If you can't remember what it is like not to be any all of the Lamb burn any part of it that you don't eat because this Lamb is given totally for you is not partial. It's a complete sleep sacrifice and you are to take the blood and painted over the door posts in the lintels of your home.

The instructions said don't leave the house after that for at midnight. The destroyer is going to come through very very specific instructions on and if you are an ordinary Egyptian observing all that you might think. My how unusual these people are and what strange rules they have and the contrast point of this is irony of people who had this revelation with instructions about this very narrow idea of truth seem like they're the ones who are confined and constricted and yet they were the ones who were free. It is very powerful powerful image. Of course it's make a few observations about the nature of this help you understand my point about the relationship of revelation from God and freedom in the first point that I take from all of this and that is so central to the gospel is pictured in the Passover, the whole focus was on the blood of the Lamb. The focus was not on the righteousness of the Hebrew people and the unrighteousness of each of the focus of this moment in time. The saving moment.

The focus is on the blood of the Lamb is not so much about did the people inside the house and the Hebrew hot that they have a good day or bad day.

It was about the unblemished lamb whose blood was shed and was applied in faith, trusting that God would look upon that blood and would pass over, bringing salvation, deliverance and freedom to their house and why this is so important is because most people.

Most Christians tend to think that in some measure your approach to God is a process where he examined you for your worthiness as to whether or not you're going to be allowed into his presence, but everything that makes the gospel good news everything is so wonderful about it hinges on this point is that God is not looking to your worthiness, but to the worthiness of the Lamb and in later times when there be thousands and thousands and thousands and thousands of Passover lambs that were sacrificed and they would bring those lamb to the priest to be inspected as part of the Passover worship priest did not inspect the worshiper for worthiness. The priest inspected the Lamb.

So when you come to God in your worship when you come to God and your need and in your prayer when you come to God and your joy in your longing to be close to him. There is an examination that takes place but it is not an examination of you Christian is an examination of the son of God looks to his right hand and he sees the unblemished Lamb of God was died in your place, and he sees the blood that is been shed for you and so you are welcome into the presence of God because God has come in the person of Jesus Christ once and for all. The writer of Hebrews said and had his blood shed and sprinkled figuratively into the holy of holies in the heavenly once and for all time so that anyone who accepts Christ comes not by his or her own merit by the merits of the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The blood of Jesus that saves you is the blood that secures you on the second thing you notice about the Passover story is that the Lamb was brought into the home in an hour of hypnosis may become a strange thing to think of but this Lamb that's going to be slaughtered and even comes into the household.

It's it's it's it becomes, one of them and he is not one of them.

The Bible said in the first chapter of the Gospel of John, literally Jesus pitched his tent in our midst. The tabernacle he he made his home with us. He became one of us. He was with us and yet he wasn't one of us. He was human but is also God. He came because we are identified with Jesus, the Passover, the people were identified with this Lamb and we are identified with Jesus and all these events third thing after all these events had very specific timing is very important to God because he is painting a picture on the history, the landscape of history so that it would make clear some things for us as Christians. They were to take the Lamb and on the 10th day of this on will the 10th day of this on. We learn very clearly from the Gospels, is the day that Jesus came riding into Jerusalem on a donkey. The people were crying out close Anna Hosanna he's riding in on a donkey into what we call passion week and we call this the triumphal entry, but it was triumphal only in the sense that he was moving now resolutely towards Thursday and Friday and then Sunday Easter vets will have more teaching moment from today's important series of facts I will restore the fortunes of Jacob's times and have compassion on his dwellings. The city will be rebuilt on her powers. In its proper place as timeless words from Jeremiah 30 for the heart of God loves to restore way time cities would often be rebuilt on top of the ruins of the former city, and he said he would stand higher with social walls and a greater perspective pastor right out of the ruins help document build your life gloriously, yesterday's disappointments to get to Alan Wright Ministries to listen to Pastor Alan's messages and attractive CD album through digital download as our way of saying thanks for your partnership, six 877-544-4860 877-544-4861 come to our website pastor and data work. Today's teaching now continues here once again is Alan writing so the Lamb of God who takes away the sooner the world came into Jerusalem on the same day that every faithful Jew was taking all Lamb and other household and Jesus ministered in Jerusalem and then came the 14th day of this Psalm, which was the day that the Passover is celebrated and so Jesus celebrated the Passover with his disciples and they gathered in some upper room and they would have like every faithful Jew. They would have had twilight slaughter the Passover lamb prepared to have a feast together and eat the Lamb and they would've had the unleavened bread and bitter herbs, but we came to the unleavened bread on the 14th day of Nisan, he lifted up the bread and from his disciples and said something mysterious. He said this is my body, and is given for you to say the Passover has always been about me. The Passover itself was a picture of what I'm doing for you. He saying in the same way that they were to eat of that laminate all uppity saying I want to spiritually, I want to take me in how you're going to your final life in me. And so there it is the Lamb of God. Jesus is celebrating the Passover by eating the feast of the Lamb on the 14th day of Nisan, 1500 years after these events that Took Pl. in Egypt and then as it was in Egypt just at midnight when the 15th day of Nisan, arrived there was judgment against the firstborn and is on the 15th day of this on the firstborn of all creation. Jesus was put upon a Roman cross bled and he suffered and died for you.

The only difference notices between the Hebrew and the Egyptians on that fateful night was the blood. All this is in evil tyrant who would oppress them, but let's face it, there were also I'm sure some morally good Egyptians. Just like there was some of the Hebrews, whom I not been morally good at all. The distinction about those are going to be judged and those are to be set free was the blood of the Lamb over the door, but why was the blood over that door.

The blood was over that door only because they had been given instructions they had been given a revelation so you can say they were saved by the blood but you could also say they were saved by the word of God. If an Egyptian.

Don't you think the way you read the story of an Egyptian had received the revelation and believed it and applied it and they had blood over there door. The distorted all right by the Egyptian home.

The difference was they had no revelation I'm saying is that the heart of the gospel is God's commitment to reveal himself to centers in the pathway to freedom is revelation in the power of the blood of the Lamb is a revelation of the gift of the son of God cannot understand what opens up some eyes while other eyes remain close that I know it is God loves to save God wants the whole world to know the saving cleansing forgiving redeeming power that is found in the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.

He did not come to condemn but to set us free. The word of God is not changing the word of God is liberating the truth will set you free. This goes far to explain why Jesus so passionately said those whom the son sets free will be free indeed that every other measure of freedom is small in comparison to the enormity of the freedom for those in Christ than those who receive this seemingly narrow revelation about the person of Jesus. What seems like too the person is no revelation of God's grace seems binding. It seems constricting.

It seems like if I yield to God is take away my freedom, but to those who have eyes to see if they discover this is the avenue by which Chris opened up Jesus came that you have life and have it more abundantly to AA were oftentimes initially resistant to the very truth that will set us free. Also interesting that so many of the medical discoveries over the years were initially rejected. Like in the 1850s.

It was roughly around them. When a mine start have any idea about bacteria and there was a Hungarian physician who noticed that so many of the newborn mothers of newborn were dying 18% of them were dying from infection and so weak he noticed that those who had washed their hands after performing autopsies is violent even think bras will understand it, but they washed they wouldn't wash her hands after door on top to go deliver baiting 80% of women were dying, and some of them wash their hands and and the doctor observed.

This is what I get affected so he proposed a theory is start washing your hands and reduce mortality to 2% for that 18% and you know what he received for this a lot of rejection. Nope, I believe that leaning to it for a long time is it wasn't until the 1980s that it anybody believe that ulcers are not just caused by stress and spicy food, but by material and then there was a Western Australian gastroenterologist who proposes and nobody would believe him.

It was rejected. So finally he drank Trixie featuring thousands of millions of bacteria from a petri dish.

In fact his own gut and then treat himself with an antibiotic to prove voters talking about.

Here's what you find out if you can find someone who knows a lot more truth than you do about something and that person cares for you. You become eager to receive the truth and apply and try to be a good nurse from wife during her recovery.

In one of the larger matter.

Surgery is it that the medical community is very serious about this I learned there's a real risk of blood clots after surgery and zygotic precautions against so they said that their own sweet wife after she's she's earlier even begun to recover and say here's what you need to do when you get to move around. Lisa little bit every hour you just had your hip replacement don't feel like getting up and moving around every and then you know where these compression stockings that he never had the blessing of saying or wearing a compression stocking. They are small shriveled looking hose that look like they could barely fit around garden hose that you're supposed to pull up over your toes, ankle, and halfway up your leg and they said and we want to wear these 23/24 hours every single day is a problem when you said your hip replaced year in no mood nor have the ability to bend down and bring a small stocking over your toes and drag it up over your ankle and of your leg so you guess who's a compression stocking put her on her any feel really bad about that because you have to push hard on somebody's leg just had major surgery on Atlantic night is no way to Villanova was, but you do because the seeming lack of freedom of having to wear compression stockings pales in comparison to the lack of freedom you experience if you get a blood clot is in your the hospital so you take the thing that seems like it's constraining because it's actually freedom to and there's a way in which the gospel can initially to those who haven't had eyes to see can seem so confined, or so constraining. Once you once you have eyes to see you realize know is T this is freedom and the truths that you free so incredible about the Passover story and that amazing deliverance of the people of God is that if you were an Egyptian that night and say you were a quote good person you came in you start speaking to the destroyer to this dark presence if you're speaking out to a new site. I'm a good person but I do good things for people.

Educated person from wealthier and accomplished person does any of this. Save me if you had spoken to that dark presence in its boat back to you. It was said no and use it will work and save me and the voice would say nothing, nothing, nothing can save you. But the but if you were a Hebrew locked up inside of your little Hebrew hot and you felt the cool light of the anointing of the Holy Spirit, fill your room. While there were shrieks of terror throughout the rest of Egypt and you were a child of that family and turn to your dataset that would have we done that is made us so special that we have deserved this. That could be that that father had been impatient 10 blasphemous that very day and he would have to say to his child.

Nothing we did nothing. We have nothing but the blood because the glory of the gospel is it to say nothing but the blood is not only to say nothing but the blood can save you but is also to say nothing in addition to the blood is necessary and when you see your free fear and shame and condemnation fall impotently to the ground for those who discover the power that is in the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ and that gospel Allen right today's teaching freedom through revelation is in our series unleashed and please stay with us Allen's back in the studio assuring a parting good news thought for the day in just a moment.

Just a click away. Pastor I got away to hear that you use your Allen sporting good news thought for the day and we were talking about freedom and I hear you talk about freedom. It's it's good to come to pinch yourself and say no this is a real true freedom.

This is not some some weird bait and switch. It's true, real freedom, absolutely God is absolutely for our freedom. Christ came that we would be set free and those that are in Christ are free indeed. He is the picture of our spiritual life as a move from the image of slavery to the image of being an air and so put the real issue. In the end is not so much whether people value freedom everybody values freedom is how you actually have and what we seen today is that just as surely as the Israelites were saved by the revelation by truth that the destroyers coming through. But where there is blood of the Lamb will be spare we are saved, we are free by the revelation of Jesus Christ and what God has done for us and the more you see, the more that you know the more free you actually today's good news message is a listener supported production Allen White ministries
