This is the Lord's last warning before the final punishment falls. Possibly each of these plagues condemned a different false god of the Egyptians.
V. 7 Tells us again how much the Lord delights in His people and can show His power for them. The door to this grace is just about to be shut forever. On Egypt (a picture of this world) God's punishment was about to fall Day 82 Ex. 12, Verses 1-20
Moses is very great. Notice what Num. 12:33(Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.) (Numbers 12:3) and 7 say about him V. 2 What the Israelites were about to be told was to be the beginning of a whole new way of life for them.
V. 6 They had to be sure the lamb was perfect. 7
V. 7 They had to "take of the blood" of the killed lamb and put it where God told them.
V. 8 Notice the word "roast". The lamb was never to be roasted ever after, in the keeping of the Passover. It was to be boiled (seethed) in water as 16:23. Roasting exposed the lamb directly to the fire. The Lord Jesus was exposed to the fire of God's judgment on the cross, once. When we remember the Lord Jesus by taking the bread and the wine it is a remembrance of what He did once.
V. 8-11 All were to eat the rest of the lamb, as people all ready to leave Egypt. (Like a believer starting out in his new life).
V. 12-13 The tenth and final judgment, by which the Lord did what He had promised.
V. 15-20 "Seven days" is a "complete" period, starting immediately after the feast of verse 14! 1 Cor. 5:6-86Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? 7Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: 8Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. (1 Corinthians 5:6‑8) gives the meaning of this seven-day feast for Christians. All our Christian life, right from the moment we were saved we are to act sincerely (honestly, uprightly) and according to the truth of God's Word. The leaven (a picture of evil) was to be cleared out of their houses...evil is to be put out of our life.
