EXODUS and EGYPT.
Think what it meant to the Egyptians as they had witnessed the awe and wonder of Israel being delivered out of their hands by the Mighty Hand of God.
After all that had happened in their land, the destruction, the awful plagues that devastated the land and the terrible loss of all their first-born.
The Egyptians urged the Hebrews to leave their land and lsrael helped themselves to precious jewels, gold silver and expensive raiment .. not just one or two items!
They spoiled the Egyptians and took everything they desired!! The Egyptians gladly handed over their precious items.
The land of Egypt were not sorry to see them winding their way out their country. The fear of God had fallen upon everyone!
Egypt’s hope was in their man made Idols, the gods of Egypt. These gods were great in the eyes of the Nations.
God Himself was restoring the knowledge of “THE ONE TRUE GOD ”
He declares in cpt 12:12,
“AGAINST ALL THE GOD’S OF EGYPT
I WILL EXECUTE MY JUDGEMENT.”
This compelled the Egyptians to confess that all this devastation upon their land as a result of ..
“THE FINGER OF GOD,”
That became a lesson to the nations of the world that He is the “One True God.” And so He is today.
Remember, at the beginning Pharaoh defiantly answered Moses,
“WHO IS THIS GOD, THAT I SHOULD OBEY HIM?”
Moses replied on behalf of God ..
“FOR THIS VERY CAUSE I RAISED YOU UP, TO SHOW MY POWER IN YOU .. THAT MY NAME NAME BE DECLARED IN ALL THE EARTH.”
YOU, CAN KNOW THIS TRUE AND LIVING GOD … YOURSELF!
He revealed Himself in His only begotten son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
He gave His Life and shed His blood so you and l can escape the bondage of sin of spiritual Egypt, and enter the freedom of The Heavenly Promised land, Simply pray …
“Lord God, l am a sinner.
please save me from the
penalty of sin. Change my life.
Fill me with your Holy Spirit.
In the Name of Jesus.” Amen.
Knowing Jesus as your Saviour opens you up to a New and a Beautiful Relationship with God.
You are not religious .. you are a Christian!
Born again by the Spirit of God, who now lives in you.
ALLOW HIM TO GUIDE YOU IN YOUR LIFE. HE WILL NOT INTRUDE, HE IS A GENTLEMAN AND HE LOVES YOU VERY MUCH!
You have been brought out of your Egypt and have entered your promised land. The Kingdom of God!
There are giants for you to face and battles to be won.
Be of good courage, God’s words for Joshua later on, are His words for you.
Joshua1:9. “BE STRONG AND OF GOOD COURAGE ; BE NOT AFRAID OR BE DISMAYED,
FOR THE LORD THY GOD IS WITH YOU WHEREVER YOU GO.”
As God said to Joshua,
“Meditate in my Word day and night so you can obey what is written therein, then you will make your way Prosperous and you shall be Successful.”
