Blood On Our Doors

As a people we have repeatedly been warned  by inspired leaders of the attack that is upon the family unit by the secularist of our day.  I would compare their warning to that given to the Israelites by Moses  if they wanted to find safety in the land of Egypt.

” For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast..I am the Lord…And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.” (Genesis 12:12-13).

If you remember the Israelites were slaves to the Egyptians. The Lord sent plagues upon Egypt to soften the heart of Pharaoh. The last plague sent by the Lord killed all the firstborn of Egypt. In order for the deadly plague to “passover,” Moses was told by the Lord to… ” Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying…take to them every man a lamb…and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening. And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.” (Genesis 12: 3, 5-7).

So faithful Israelites who believed in the words of a prophet put the lambs blood upon the door so that the destroying angel would pass over their house and spare them. The destroying angel is also at our doors. How can we have the destroying angel pass over our homes?

We can do what the Israelites of old did. Obey the prophets! We do this by following wise counsel that we are given. Hold our Family Home Evenings, pray together often, read the scriptures together, attend our meetings, pay our tithes and offerings, attend the temple and keep the other commandments that we have been given. This is the lamb’s “blood” that we can put on our doors to keep out the messages of destruction, that have become a plague upon our families. May we mark our doors in righteousness so that the destroying power of the adversary will ‘passover.’
