God has brought judgement against the gods of Egypt, and now he is facing against the supreme Son of Ra, the upholder of order and destroyer of chaos. On the night when Death passed over the land, every household needed to offer a sacrifice: their firstborn son, or the blood of a spotless, perfect, lamb. To satisfy God's judgement against sin, and in order to escape death, there needs to be a substitute. The wages of sin and our hard-heartedness is death. There is nowhere to run but to the arms of Jesus, the true firstborn son and perfect lamb who was our substitute on the cross. Now, he puts his blood on the doorposts of our hearts, saving us from the wrath and death that is to come. Instead of death and judgement, in Christ we receive eternal life and mercy.
