Exodus 12:29-32 — “And it came to pass, that at midnight the LORD smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt…” The final devastating plague fell upon Egypt just as the LORD said it would. There was not one Egyptian household that was not visited with death on that terrifying night. But the Children of Israel were spared, and it wasn’t because of who they were or what they had done. It was because of the blood that was applied to the doors of their homes. They were saved by the blood and so are we.
