The Exodus Movie – Re-examined ?

     “By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter . . . . Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God (Elohim – the Mighty One), than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; esteeming the reproach of Christ as greater riches than the treasures in Egypt . . . . for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward !

    By faith, he forsook Egypt . . . and faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God . . .  not fearing the wrath of the king . . . for God hath not given unto us the spirit of fear, but of power, of love (self-sacrifice), and of a sound mind . . . . For He endured, as seeing Him that is invisible !       ref: Romans 10:17 & II Timothy 1:7

     Through faith (in Jehovah’s promise of a Lamb slain from the foundation of the world), he kept the Passover, and the sprinkling of blood . . . lest He that destroyed the first born of Egypt (Matthew 10:28) should touch them. And by faith they (the children of Abraham) passed through the Red Sea as by dry land . . . . which the Egyptians assaying (attempting) to do were drowned . . .

     And what more shall I say?
For the time would fail me to tell of Gideon, and Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and of Samuel, and the prophets . . . . who through faith, subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, and stopped the mouths of lions . . . . Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with (surrounded by) so great a cloud of witness of God’s unfailing love and power . . . Let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience (Hebrews 10:23) the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the Author and the Finisher of our faith . . . . For He is faithful that hath promised . . . !”   Hebrews 11:23-40, 12:14, 11:11 & ref: II Corinthians 1:20

     Moses had been learning much that he must unlearn. The influences that had surrounded him in Egypt . . . .

Exodus – The True Story of History’s Greatest Deliverance !

Reared in the ways of the God of the heavens during his early childhood, Moses, who was drawn from the water, was moved from his humble abode to one of privilege with every amenity. Temptation abounded, but the teaching of his mother in the way of truth lingered in his mind, even as he was tutored in the schools of the pharaoh. With his leadership and military training behind him, yet convinced of his sacred duty, he ached to see his people suffer.

Exodus cover1Thus, Moses committed the same grave error of many of his ancestors: taking matters into his own hands. An Egyptian oppressor died because of Moses’ misguided fervor, which sent him fleeing as a fugitive. In the mountains of Moses’ refuge, God broke down the strongholds of Egyptian influence.

As forty years of Moses’ life passed in his wilderness hideaway, God instilled in His servant lessons of faith, patience, humility, and reverence. When Moses was humbled, God met him at the burning bush. He trembled at the thought of returning to the land of his birth to face a brotherly foe. Only then did God lay out His detailed instruction to rescue the Hebrew people. Together Moses and his brother Aaron took the message of God to the earthly king: “Let My people go ! Continue reading

The Battle is the LORD’s !

Guardian Angel     “And when the servant of the man of God was risen early, and gone forth . . . Behold, an host compassed the city both with horses and chariots. And his servant said unto him (Elisha), Alas, my master!   How shall we do?

     And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them . . . for greater is He which dwells in you, that they which are in this world ! . . . . And Elisha prayed, and said, I pray Thee, open his (my servant’s) eyes that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw . . . .

     And, behold, the mountain was full of horses, and chariots of fire round about Elisha !”     II Kings 6:15-17 Continue reading
