Why remove the leaven?

Shemot (Exodus) 12:15-20 For seven days you are to eat bread made without yeast (chametz). On the first day remove the yeast (chametz) from your houses, for whoever eats anything with yeast (chametz) in it from the first day through the seventh must be cut off from Israel. On the first day hold a sacred assembly, and another one on the seventh day. Read More »

The Saga of Egypt, Glory of Salvation

Matthew 2:13-15 (ESV) Now when they had departed, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, “Rise, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt, and remain there until I tell you, for Herod is about to search for the child, to destroy him.” And he rose and took the child and his mother by night and departed to Egypt and remained there until the death of Herod. This was to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet, ”Out of Egypt I called my son.” Read More »


Working Behind the Scenes

Devotional

When YHVH entered into a covenant with Abraham, he was a small family.  I image when he walked the Promised Land, he wondered how he could possibly fill such large piece of land. YHVH promised to make his people as numerous as the stars, but he wouldn’t see it happen in his lifetime.   Read More »


Jethro’s Conversion

Susie Med

Jethro was an interesting man.  The father-in-law of Moses, he had several daughters who took care of his flocks.  He was a high priest, but not of YHVH.  Some teach he may have been a priest in Pharaoh’s court, but in protest to Pharaoh’s decision to kill all the male Hebrew children, he chose self-exile in the wilderness.  That may have been another reason he embraced Moses as son when he met him.  Anyway, Jethro comes to visit Moses in Exodus 18, to bring his family to him and find out what happened in Egypt.  I’m sure he heard rumors, but wanted to verify the facts for himself.  What’s amazing about this account is the impact YHVH’s works had on Jethro.  Not only did he rejoice in Moses’ success, but he acknowledged the greatness of YHVH and made offerings to Him.  Here is an uncircumcized pagan whose life was changed because of the works of YHVH.  Jethro’s documented history shows YHVH working on him over many years.

The same is true for my own life.  I can look back to my childhood and see the hand of YHVH working.  From age five, I see YHVH making Himself know to me in small but significant ways.  I didn’t choose to surrender my life to Him until mid-life, but He faithfully kept me moving towards Him.  He protected, provided and sustained me.  Unbeknownest to me at the time, He was my source of strength and courage through difficult times.  Psalm 139:16 says -

“Your eyes saw my unformed body;

all the days ordained for me were written in your book

before one of them came to be.”

I can’t forget that, not for one moment!  My precious Father has guided and protected me.  Praise His Holy Name!
