Passover – The Judgment Of The Gods

Gary Hargrave

When God opens the door for us to celebrate a biblical feast, He is opening the door for us to have an experience today that includes the deep spiritual reality of those feasts.

On the night that the Israelites were to leave Egypt, God instructed them to put the blood of the lamb on the doorposts and told them “none of you shall go outside the door of his house until morning” (Exodus 12:22). What was the spiritual reality behind this? God was preparing to go through the land to execute judgment against all the gods of Egypt (Exodus 12:12). He wanted His people to stay in their houses, where they were under His protection and under His dominion.

Deliverance of the Israelites from slavery under Pharaoh was only one aspect of their Passover experience. The reality in the realm of spirit was that they were under the dominion of other gods, other elohim. The only way that God could get them free was to bring them into His realm of influence, in His Kingdom, under His dominion.

These are the dynamics of Passover, and this is the same reality that God wants to do for us today. God is determined to judge the elohim that hold us in bondage, but first He is asking us, “Come into My house! Come into My Kingdom. Get out of the realm of those other gods. Come out of the place where they are influencing you. Come into My realm! I want you under Me, under My dominion, under My Lordship!”

In this Passover, we make Him our dwelling place. We bring our spirits under the dominion of His Lordship. As we enter into rulership with Him, we will see all other gods confronted with the truth that the God of Israel is the God of gods. That is the judgment of Passover.
