Now we come to the moment of escape. Pharoah has so far resisted showing compassion under duress of all kinds of plagues. The last one is different and strikes at his heart through his children. Verse 12 “Because the Lord kept vigil that night to bring them out of Egypt”. The Lord kept vigil. How awesome is that? After 430 years of slavery the Israelites are freed in an instant, told to leave immediately in the middle of the night. God acts and the seemingly impossible is done in the blink of an eye. Not only that but they leave with extra gold and silver. When God moves the results are dramatic and blessing abounds. Where can Jesus be seen in this story? As Ron pointed out a few days ago he is our sacrificial lamb, our passover feast, his blood on our doorframe. Have a read of the crucifixion accounts and notice that not one of his bones were broken either. A coincidence? I think not.
