'BEFORE THE MOUNTAINS WERE BROUGHT FORTH, OR EVER THOU HADST FORMED THE EARTH AND THE WORLD, FROM EVERLASTING TO EVERLASTING THOU ART GOD.' [KJV PSALM 90:2]

Welcome, welcome, welcome, my friends.
I know you can hardly wait to get to the 'story' of 'God's Redemption' of the 'children of Abraham' from the 'toils, and troubles of slavery' in Egypt. After all, it has been some time since Joseph's death and the children are in 'dire straits'. Will God keep His Promise, or, has God forgotten them? For that matter, have 'we' forgotten that we have - 'the God', or have we 'run after false 'gods'?
Sound like us, when we are 'waiting on God'? Sound like us, when we have 'turned our backs on God', leaving Him, while we 'lived our lives', and would 'one day get back to - 'religion', if we have time?? Hum-m-m-m.
Well be encouraged and get ready for the treat of treats - so that by the time we have studied the 'Exodus', prayerfully, we will have gained a better ability, more understanding in - 'the Faithfulness of the LORD', notwithstanding - 'the fickleness of His people'. Amen. Amen.
This week, August 24-26-28, 2020, lets start with some 'preliminary' introductions. Post B.
After verse seven in the first chapter of the book of Exodus Israel is noticed by the Egyptians as being great in number and prosperous. In view of this the book of Exodus seems to fall into seven distinct sections:
Outline of the Book of Exodus audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
1) The sufferings of Israel (Chapters 1:8-7:7). This section includes the birth, education and flight of Moses; his call to be deliverer of his people and his consequent return from Midian to Egypt; and his first ineffectual attempts to prevail upon Pharaoh to let the Israelites go, which resulted only in an increase in their burdens.
2) A manifestation of God's providential guidance of Israel, illustrated by the ten plagues (Chapters 7:8-13:16). This section also includes the account of the observance of the first Passover (Chapter 12).
[Exodus Chapters 4-10, we will explore in a post or two - the topic - 'hardness of heart'. God's 'patience' and 'long-suffering' before judgment; Pharoah's 'stubborn' resistance that leads to 'just judgment'. Critical lessons for each of us to learn, even or especially today, in the times in which we are living. [2 Timothy 3:1-9]
We will also have a special set of posts on the topic, of 'types and shadows' around Chapter 12.]
3) The guiding of the people of Sinai (Chapters 13:17-18:27), which tells of the departure and the miraculous crossing of the Red Sea. This section also contains a narrative of the principal events on the journey from the Red Sea to Sinai, including the coming of the manna, the observance of the Sabbath, the supply of water from the rock at Rephidim and the advice of Jethro concerning the civil government of the great mass of people.
4) The making of the covenant at Sinai, together with the reception of the Ten Commandments (Chapters 19:1-24:18). The laws recorded in this section regulated the religious, civil, and social life of the Israelites.
5) Directions for the building of the tabernacle (Chapters 24:18-31:18).audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
6) The renewing of the covenant after the sinful actions of the Israelites in connection with the making of the golden calf (Chapters 32:1-35:3).audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
When we get to Chapter 34, I believe that it is important to discuss the topic of 'generational curses', knowledge which will definitely lighten your burden with truth with respect to who is responsible for the sins of the past'!
7) The actual building and dedication of the tabernacle of the Lord (Chapters 35:4-40:38), under the supervision of the two master craftsmen, Bezalel and Oholiab. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Exodus is a book of 'redemption' in which God delivers His people out of bondage and brings them into a special relationship with Himself. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
It is with this understanding, that we see a 'type' of the 'Ultimate Redemption' for Mankind, through the marvelous, gracious work of 'Jesus Christ', who redeems and delivers' whosoever believes in Him from the 'bondage of sin and death', for a 'special relationship' with 'eternal life' with God the Father, through His Perfect 'life, death, burial, resurrection and ascension'.
We have this precious 'gift' by the Grace of the Father, the moment we 'believe' in Jesus Christ!! We can joyfully proclaim, 'Free alas, thank God I am free alas! Hallelujah! Amen. Amen.
Oh, for the Precious Blood Shed by 'the Lamb of God'!! We will close out this week with some praise in song, before continuing during the week of August 31-September 2-4, 2020 when we shall begin with the verbatim posts of the Book of the Exodus, Chapter by Chapter by Chapter. Amen. Amen.
