Now there was a great famine where Isaac lived. God appeared to Isaac and said, “Do not go down to Egypt; Stay in this land for a while, and I will be with you and will bless you.” So Isaac stayed in Gerar, planted crops in that land and the same year reaped a hundredfold, because the Lord blessed him. He became rich, and his wealth continued to grow until he became very wealthy. He had so many flocks, herds and servants that the Philistines envied him. King Abimelech was intimidated by Isaac. He realised that Isaac had God on his side, therefore he and his men said, “We saw clearly that the Lord was with you,” (Genesis 26:28) and they wanted to make a peace treaty with him. During this time of plague and famine, do not be anxious. If you have put your faith and trust in the Living God and His Son Jesus, God will satisfy all your needs just like he blessed Isaac, so much so, the people who live among you will see that the Lord is with you.

EXODUS 12:7,13  And they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel of the houses. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you; and the plague shall not be on you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt.The Egyptians had no protection from the destroyer, but the people of Israel who put the blood of a lamb on their dwellings were safe.The blood represented the Blood of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world – Jesus Christ (Revelation 13:8)..The blood applied stopped the destroyer.  With blood on the door of the Israelites in Egypt, no evil dared enter their dwelling. Christ is our Passover Lamb.  Likewise, we are kept safe through the protection of the divine Blood of Jesus. 1 CORINTHIANS 5:7 For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us.
