On this 5th day of April at sunset – Passover begins
A sacred observance taking place among the Jewish people
commemorating the story of the Israelite’s departure from ancient Egypt, commanded by God, that His people will always remember their deliverance from slavery!
“In that day I will set apart the Land of GoshenExodus 8:22
where my people dwell…
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 their slavery land
Before Pharaoh 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 people”
Then Moses struck the water, the River Nile turned to blood
frogs invaded Pharaoh’s palace, into piles the frogs were heaped
dust was turned to lice and and flies, flying upon man and beast
And all his 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 people
that they may worship your God in heaven” and so the great Exodus began!
Multitudes of people were driven from Egypt, Pharaoh changed his mind
God was tired of his lies! Following close behind the king
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 Pharaoh and his army He cast into
the sea, the waters swallowed them and they all died, let this story be
told to our children and to all generations!
And now the following day all these people shall celebrate the Passover Feast
It is a festival to the Lord!
