Passover

March 27th, as the holy Sabbath hour begins, the feast of the Passover,
A sacred holiday among the Jewish people, commemorates the story
of the Israelites departure from ancient Egypt, commanded by God,
that His people will always remember their deliverance from slavery.

Book of Exodus

“So this day shall be to you a memorial…to remind you
of your deliverance from the land of Egypt.

Exodus 12:14
The Feast of Unleavened Bread, matzah bread and red wine,
are served at a dinner called the ‘Seder’ which consists of special foods
representing symbols of the Israelites journey from Egypt.

“And they baked unleavened cakes of the dough
they had brought out of Egypt…”seven days you
you shall eat unleavened bread”

Exodus 12:39

“In that day I will set apart the land of Goshen
where my people dwell…I will pass over, that no
plague will come near their dwelling.”

Exodus 8:22

In the land of Egypt a pallor

Has spread

Death is imminent

All sits in darkness but the

Land of Goshen

Where God’s chosen people

Wait for deliverance

And so Moses took his staff in

Hand

For he had a plan to lead God’s

People out of this slavery land

Before Pharoah he cast

A rod, a serpent appeared,

Pharoah became scared

To this stubborn man, Moses said

“Let these people go,

Or pestilence and plague will

Come upon you and your own”

Then Moses struck the water

The River Nile turned to blood

Frogs invaded the Pharoah’s

Palace,

Into piles the frogs were heaped,

Dust was turned to lice and

Flies, flying upon man and beast

And all Pharoah’s people pled with

Him “let them go” but once

Again he would not answer

Until the angel of death struck

His son

Then this frightened man

Said “Into the desert wilderness

Take your children, that they may

Worship your God in heaven”

And so the Great Exodus began!

Multitudes of people were driven

From Egypt

Pharoah changed his mind after

They left

God was tired of his lies!

Following close behind he sought

The people, but this, God had

Forbidden

A large sea appeared, God split

It in two, on dry land His children

Passed through

On the other side they sang and cried –

“We have been saved, but

Pharoah and his army He cast into

The sea, the waters swallowed

Them and they all died”…

“Let this story be told to your children
for all generations!”
