Deliverance

6 Therefore say to the children of Israel: ‘I AM the Lord, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm and with great judgments. 7 And I will take you to Me for a people, and I will be your God. And you shall know that I AM the Lord your God, who brings you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians.

Exodus 6: 6-7

This event in the history of the children of Israel is a foreshadow or representation of the final deliverance of the Church at the End of the Age. In it, we can see similarities of the bondage of the Israelites’ in the Egyptian dynasty as a representation of the world’s Beast System of oppression and persecution of God’s people, purchased by the blood of Christ.

The entire book of Exodus allegorically illustrates a journey of deliverance for Christians both individually and as a corporate body to a land that God will give them, a land of God’s good things. Each part of the our journey is represented in Exodus passages from the call of God to follow Him to the final destination as citizens in the Kingdom of Christ.

What we learn is that we are not alone, that the Lord is with us every step of the way. From the plagues brought upon Egypt; escape into a wilderness where there is neither water or food; to war to possess the land that we’re promised; and to finally possessing that Land. The book of Exodus tells the story of the patience, protection, and provision of our God and Father throughout our pilgrimage. It also tells of the work of Jesus in this way:

5 Moses was faithful in all God’s house as a servant, testifying about those that were to be spoken later. 6 But Christ is faithful over God’s house as a Son, who house we are if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of our hope firm to the end.” Hebrews 3: 5-6

We can take cheer and rejoice because we know how this all ends. Christ is the Victory and the victory that overcomes the world and it’s demonic Beast system.
