LDS/ Mormon: Food Storage vs. the Passover in Egypt

grego
(c)2012

Some people think that food storage will never be much of a problem, especially if they can get it from their neighbor/ nearby family/ members/ etc. Think about these things, though…

The Passover was a night to remember with special food. It was a night that the faithful were to be delivered from a plague through obedience to doing something.

The Israelites were told to do a few things with food the night of the Passover, with the main thing being to put red around their door, as a sign to keep the destroying angel of God from entering:
Exodus 12:22 And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the bason, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that is in the bason; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning.
23 For the Lord will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the Lord will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you.
Hebrews 11:28 Through faith [Moses] kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.

What if a purpose of food storage–at least for a few?–will be “a sign” of faith? What if the consequences of having food storage aren’t just that you might not be hungry, or starve, but the Lord will prevent the destroyer from entering your house and smiting it?

If not that, what if the consequences of not having food storage will be no opportunity to get any food, from anyone?

What if those that have their food storage will have special protection, destroying angels, who will cut down/ burn up any who “try to enter”?

Just (left-field) thoughts that came to mind… ;)
