Topic: Barbeque/Cookout (09/06/12)

TITLE: God's Outdoor Feast
By Janice Wappel


Exodus 12:10B-11 The Message
You are to eat the meat, roasted in the fire, that night, along with bread, made without yeast, and bitter herbs. Donít eat any of it raw or boiled in water; make sure itís roastedóthe whole animal, head, legs, and innards. Donít leave any of it until morning; if there are leftovers, burn them in the fire.
11 ďAnd here is how you are to eat it: Be fully dressed with your sandals on and your stick in your hand. Eat in a hurry; itís the Passover to GOD.

Moses, ď hurryÖ itís getting lateĒ
King Pharaoh has been lying in wait
He will soon be checking the infant mortality rate
But, before you leave Egypt; be on the lookout
Itís almost time for Godís Passover cookout

Roast the meat, bake the bread, hunker down and head out of town!

Fire up the grill, be dressed for the kill
Put on your shoes and pick up your sticks
Old Phraoah is full of ticks and tricks
He wonít soon forget the row of bricks
He made you mix just for kicks

Roast the meat, bake the bread, hunker down and head out of town!

Roast the meat, head and all, create a big impressive spread
Youíll soon be fed so you donít drop dead
There will be no rye bread, or white bread, or barbequed fare
Just knead the stiff unleavened bread
There is no need to go to bed

Roast the meat, bake the bread, hunker down and head out of town!

Rise up and go to serve your God
Take your flocks and your herds
Leave in haste, but take your cakes
Be sure to stay wide awake
For soon you will be crossing an enormous lake

Roast the meat, bake the bread, hunker down and head out of town!

Please donít be afraid when Pharoah draws near
His chariots and army
Will drown in the sea
Then sink to the bottom
Time and again
Roast the meat, bake the bread, hunker down and head out of town!

Numbers 33:3-4 NIV
3 The Israelites set out from Rameses on the fifteenth day of the first month, the day after the Passover. They marched out defiantly in full view of all the Egyptians, 4 who were burying all their firstborn, whom the LORD had struck down among them; for the LORD had brought judgment on their gods.

I loved how you brought this topic into full view with Biblical references. Nicely done. God bless~

Such a clever creative version of this Biblical event...your imperative poetic style matched the event perfectly!

This is definitely an out of the box approach on the topic. There may have been a line or tow (like the rye and white bread) that may not have had perfect rhytm but it brought a smile to my face just the same. I think this is a creative take on the topic and could easily see it as a Sunday School song. It would definitely be something the kids could relate to. Nice job.
