Pt. 2# The Feasts Of The LORD (Exodus 8:27-28) (A NEW OWNER) (3-13-21)
(LET MY PEOPLE GO ‘3DAYS’ TO GO INTO THE WILDERNESS TO WORSHIP THE LORD!)
(Why did Moses tell the Pharaoh that the Israelites wished to take a ‘3 DAY’ Journey into the desert to worship God, when they had no intention of going back to Egypt? Did Moses lie? Even more seriously, did the Lord lie?)
(GOD CAN NOT LIE, THEREFORE THIS DEMANDS THE QUESTION: ‘WHAT DID GOD AND MOSES KNOW THAT NO ONE ELSE KNEW?’)
We will go three days' journey into the wilderness and sacrifice to the Lord our God as He will command us." So Pharaoh said,"I will let you go, that you may sacrifice to the Lord your God in the wilderness; only you shall not go very far away. Intercede for me."
God does not have to tell anybody the full, unfolding Revelation on any topic until the time is right! He often tests our attitude first. 'A 3 DAYS JOURNEY' was not the Complete Revelation, just the start of a much greater journey. In this tidbit of information given to the Pharaoh, there was also a test and opportunity forPharaoh's heart to be soften. It did not.
'It is The Glory ofGod to CONCEAL A MATTER; to search out a matter is the glory of kings. As the Heavens are high and the earth is deep, so the hearts of kings are ‘Unsearchable.'
The Apostle Paul alsoaffirms this:..
'Oh, the depth of the riches of the Wisdom and Knowledge of God! How ‘Unsearchable’ his judgments, and his paths ‘Beyond Tracing Out!'
So Pharaoh had NO Right to know the full mind of God, moreover, it was in his own interests notto know it.
(A NEW OWNER?)
“Do you not know that to whom you ‘Yield Yourselves SERVANTS TO OBEY’, you are ‘That One's SLAVE Whom You Obey’, whether of ‘Sin Leading To Death’ (SATAN), or of ‘Obedience LeadingTo Righteousness (GOD)?”
After their redemption from Egypt, the children of Israel were no longer ‘Slaves to Pharaoh’. Instead they were ‘slaves to God’. In Romans 6, Paul alludes to this transformation. He says that ‘Before Salvation’, while we were still in the flesh, we were ‘Slaves To Sin’. After Salvation, we became ‘Slaves To Righteousness’.
When God rescued Israel from Egypt, He took the people away from Pharaoh. The Israelites no longer belonged to the Egyptians, but instead, they belonged to God. This transfer of ownership from Pharaoh to God and from ‘Sin To Righteousness’ is what the Scripture means when it speaks of "Redemption." When the Bible says that God "Redeemed" us, it means that he "BOUGHT US BACK," transferring our ownership to Himself. As ‘Our New Owner’, God Has Authority Over Us!
One of the dominant theme of Passover are ‘The 10 Plagues Of Judgement Poured Out On The House Of Pharaoh and The Land Of Egypt’. The Jewish people are often identified as the people whom God brought up from the land of Egypt. On the other hand, The God of Israel, identifies himself ’10 TIMES’ in the Hebrew Scriptures as: (I Am The LORD Your God, Who Brought You Out Of The Land Of Egypt)!
