The Lord of our Fight



There is more going on than a battlefield report from the history of Exodus. The LORD brings our attention to this one to remind His people that these things are physical symbols of spiritual realities.  And the enemy we face is not people, but spiritual forces much more dangerous than swords and guns.  Ephesians 6 reminds us to be ready for spiritual warfare or we will be live defeated lives.  But in Christ, we are more than conquerors.

Exodus 17:8-16 and Ephesians 6

Water from the Rock



The LORD is remarkably patient with His new nation of Israelites. Although they have not done well with the previous exams, the third exam asks about if they will heed their thirst or trust. He patient, even though, once again, they choose contention instead of contentment. It is a test they will face again in the wilderness (Numbers 20). And it is one we face more than we realize. Will we choose to hallow His name with honor or will we defame His grace with doubt?

Exodus 17:1-7 and Numbers 20:1-13

Bread of Life



Within a month of their miraculous deliverance from Egypt followed by the Red Sea crossing, the children of Israel are having second thoughts on having left their slavery. Their food ran out. But the LORD allowed them to hunger in order to test them and feed them in His own miraculous way. But the manna from heaven was only a physical symbol of a spiritual reality that we all need to learn. Man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from God.

Exodus 16:1-7 and Deuteronomy 8:2-3

Bitterness Healed



headline

Bitterness or Blessing. Will we have the faith to turn from our fear and seek God’s provision. The LORD will lead us often times through the wilderness badlands in order that we won’t be distracted from our relationship with Him. But as we see in our story today, God is leading us to places of refreshment if we will follow Him.

Red Sea Resurrection



The LORD sets a trap, and Israel is the bait. God knows that Pharaoh has still not learned his lesson and already regrets his decision to let the Israelites leave. Pharaoh will send his army and chariots against God’s people to kill them or push them into a watery grave in the Red Sea. But the LORD has other plans. He parts the waters to make a dry path for His people to cross, luring the Egyptians to follow to their own destruction. the morning light showed that God’s servant had brought His people through death and grave to new life on the other side, a resurrection indeed!

Hard of Heart



The LORD warns Pharaoh and the rest of us that it is dangerous to keep rebelling against God Almighty. In His judgment, there is mercy. For those who heed the warning, they can spare themselves some suffering. Better still, those who not only heed the warning, but bring themselves under the protection of God in relationship through His Savior, these people are rescued from wrath and brought into the peace and rest of God.

The Showdown Begins



Moses and Aaron will represent the LORD in His plan to make the Egyptians know that the LORD is God, even in Egypt. And Pharaoh’s stubborn resistance will cooperate in giving God Almighty more opportunity to show Himself stronger than all the gods of Egypt, including Pharaoh himself.

Moses Shares Good News



Moses is recruited by God Almighty for the deliverance of the children of Israel. First recruit by Moses is his brother Aaron and together they mobilize the elders of Israel to believe that the LORD is about to rescue them. But their first encounter with Pharaoh leaves much to be desired. In fact, the king of Egypt has made things worse for the nation of slaves, just as the LORD had forewarned would happen. But God is neither surprised nor hampered by the rebellion of men.

God of the Bramble



Moses had been living on the sidelines in the desert, the life of a Midianite shepherd. But while tending sheep on the slopes of the mountain of God, Moses saw the bramble in flames yet not consumed by the fire. Thus began the conversation that turned his world, and rest of the Middle East upside-down. The LORD God had come down to make Himself known and He was starting with Moses.
