SEEDS OF VICTORY with Apostle Joseph Ziba
Christ Our Passover – Monday, 11th May, 2020
“Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as you are unleavened. For even Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us.” 1 Corinthians 5:7(KJV)
Throughout the Bible and in all generations, God has been proving His tendency of putting a distinction between His children and those who are not.
The Book of Exodus chapters 11 and 12 give a treatise of the Israelites, who for over 400 years were slaves in Egypt. When time came for God to deliver them, He called Moses to lead the Israelites from slavery. Due to the refusal of Pharaoh, King of Egypt to let the Israelites go, God sent plagues in Egypt and the tenth plague was the death of all the first born. As a token of exemption from that plague, God instructed the Israelites to sprinkle blood of a lamb on the door posts of their houses so that when the destroyer came to slaughter the first born in Egypt he should ‘Passover’ those houses.
While the Egyptians were wailing, gnashing their teeth, the Israelites were feasting and celebrating. What a distinction!Apostle Joseph Ziba – Seeds of Victory, 11 May, 2020
There was a mass destruction of the first born in Egypt that night but the Israelites, who were living in the same land, were spared. While the Egyptians were wailing, gnashing their teeth, the Israelites were feasting and celebrating. What a distinction!
The opening verse above says, ‘…For even Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us’. This signifies that the exemption of the Israelites in Egypt was simply a shadow, but the reality is Christ (Colossians 2:17).
The news of the COVID-19 pandemic, disasters, terrorism, economic recession and other ominous events, as reported daily by the media are enough to cause one to tremble and collapse but that shouldn’t be your case as a child of God—one who is born again. Jesus is your Passover. His blood covers and protects you and you are exempted from these evils and calamities.
I am a child of the most High God, I am born again. I dwell in the secret place of the Most High God. No evil comes close to my dwelling. I am covered and protected by the blood of the Lamb. Jesus is my Passover, therefore, I am exempted from diseases, poverty and all calamities that happen in the world. In the name of Jesus. AMEN.
