    The lamb was a picture of Christ-loved and then taken to the slaughter. The blood is shed for our safe keeping. In and through the blood we are saved. The gods of Egypt were false. The powers used by the Egyptians were satanic. Though it seemed harsh to kill even the Egyptian firstborn God's ways are just, and we must leave it with our Heavenly Father and not carry doubts and fears over it. Just saying. Thank you!
