Pesach: bursting through your enemies
You are about to experience the greatest liberation of your life. You will not forget this season. Never! Yes, we are going to the week of the Passover Festival and the LORD is about to repeat what He did in Egypt in your life. God will end our spiritual, physical, financial, and emotional bondage. It will smite our enemies, their conspirators, and their gods. You’ve been in that situation for quite a while and it’s clear that only a powerful divine ordinance like the one on Easter night can stop your enemies. Yes, He is a God of love, patience and peace, but also a God of revenge and war. He is a God of mercy and also a God of judgment. He forgives the repentant and also punishes the recalcitrant. We choose his side that we want to experience by our actions and attitudes. When he extends the carrot and you reject it or take his word for granted, he brings the stick. He did his best for Pharaoh and the Egyptians to allow the Israelites to leave, but they trampled on opportunities and mistook his appeals for weakness. Israel had spent about four hundred years in Egypt, according to the word of the LORD to Abraham. Now that the time is up, God sent Moses and Aaron to go and tell the king of Egypt to let his people go, “… I have certainly seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt, and I have I have heard their crying because of their overseers, because I am aware of their sufferings. milk and honey, to the place of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Hivites and the Jebusites. ” Now, behold, the cry of the children of Israel has come to me; furthermore, I have seen the oppression with that the Egyptians oppress them. ” Exodus 3: 7-9.
Wow! Did you read that? My God! Yes, you have been in that affliction long enough. And enough is enough. He has seen them patiently oppress and suppress them all these years. He said that he has seen your affliction, your tears, your work and sufferings, the grip and cruelty of your enemies and he also heard your cry and has descended to deliver you with a strong hand. Praise the Lord! The Egyptians were not only slave masters over the Israelites, but also taskmasters and assassins of fate who were determined to keep God’s people in bondage forever. The extraordinary growth, multiplication and prosperity became a source of concern for the Egyptians. They feared that the Israelites would let them grow and eventually take over their land. So, they did everything they could to stop Israelis from repression, forced labor, slavery, brutality, and even elimination. They appointed ruthless taskmasters to work too hard and break the spirit and courage of the Hebrews. Pharaoh ordered the midwives to kill the newborn Hebrew baby boys, but the Lord gave them the courage to disappoint him. Again he instructed the Egyptians and Israelites to throw the newborn Hebrew male babies into the Nile and the Almighty maneuvered the situation to preserve and prepare the deliverer. The same crocodile-infested Nile that was to serve as a tomb for the new babies became a protector and link to the palace for one of them. God is always in full control. He will always use the enemy’s plan to break through. Remember, baby Moses was left in a basket by the riverbank and that was where the King’s daughter saw and adopted him. He was well trained and equipped in the palace for the job he came to. There he mastered all the arts of Egypt to be able to stand up, speak to them and confront them. Our God is a master planner! It led you to prepare for your destiny and what is about to happen in your life. True.
Now you are totally leaving the clutches of the enemy. There is always time for everything. This is your moment of freedom. It is your time to escape. It is your moment of manifestation. A moment to recover all that was lost. It is your time of rest from all those endless struggles and sufferings. It is a time to be released from the torture and spiritual, physical, and emotional bondage by Satan, demons, and evil men and women. It is a time for God to demonstrate his sovereignty and power through you and your situation. He will stop those who have been victimizing you without just cause. It’s time to stop those soliloquies and midnight cries. He is about to show your enemies that only he has the last word in all matters. Yes, it is time for them to rescue you. It is a time for your shame to be completely erased and for your glory to return. The LORD comes with a strong hand to deliver you. Your Easter has begun! We will continue. Share this message.
