The New Exodus and Mount Sinai
The Exodus in the time of Moses is one of the most famous events of Bible History. The purpose of the event was to free those who would follow the LORD - and keep doing so without fail (those who came out of that Exodus but later refused to obey the LORD found themselves on A Journey Without A Destination).
"12:30 And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead.
As with numerous other things that happened for a purpose, the Exodus was a prophetic object lesson of the ultimate Exodus that is yet to come, including the plagues i.e. "Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues" (see the Fact Finder question below).
"18:3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
"The mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains"
"19:16 And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings [see The Coming Of Thunder], and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that was in the camp trembled. 19:17 And Moses brought forth the people out of the camp to meet with God; and they stood at the nether part of the mount. 19:18 And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly. 19:19 And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice.
Just as the Exodus has yet an ultimate fulfillment to come, so too does the proclaiming of God's Law from "the mountain of the LORD," not in Sinai, but from Jerusalem after Christ returns to liberate the people of earth from their slavery to sin and death.
"4:1 But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it.
Fact Finder: Does the plagues upon the Pharaoh of the ancient exodus yet to have an end-time fulfillment - upon all of the "pharaohs" of the carnal world?
