Old Testament: Exo 12.15
To read the Bible in a year, read Exodus 11–12 on January 26, In the year of our Lord Christ 2023
By Don Ruhl
The Lord often had the children of Israel do things, which later had spiritual applications, such as with leaven:
“Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread. On the first day you shall remove leaven from your houses. For whoever eats leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that person shall be cut off from Israel.”
– Exodus 12.15
That may seem harsh until we learn later that leaven represents, in this case, sin. (See First Corinthians 5.6–8 as an example.)
The Lord wants us to believe and obey, even if we cannot see the reason for it initially. Just learn to trust him and you shall see later the wisdom of doing so.
- What did it mean for a person to be cut off from Israel?
- Do you do everything you can to remove sin from your life?
