Songs Of Christian Deliverance
"14:26 And the LORD said unto Moses [see also The Prophets: Moses], Stretch out thine hand over the sea, that the waters may come again upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen. 14:27 And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the LORD overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea. 14:28 And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them.
The Exodus occurred at the time of Passover. The blood a sacrificed lamb that they placed around their habitations was moreover symbolic of the very much alive Lamb of God - Jesus Christ was "the LORD God" of the Exodus i.e. "that Rock was Christ."
"10:1 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; 10:2 And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; 10:3 And did all eat the same spiritual meat; 10:4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ." (1 Corinthians 10:1-4 KJV)
"They sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb"
Upon crossing the sea, the Israelites sang a song of deliverance that not only celebrated their getting to the other side, but also the destruction of the evil that they left behind, but which was still pursuing them i.e. "The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake" as quoted in the verses below (a principle that is found throughout the Holy Bible, including the famous parable of Lazarus and the Rich man i.e. "16:26 And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence" Luke 16:26 KJV).
"15:1 Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spake, saying,
That joyous song, while a celebration of deliverance to the ancient Israelites, was also prophetic.
"5:6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. 5:8 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. 5:9 And they sung a new song, saying,
When the Lamb of God returns, He will deliver His true people from the Satanic world, of which that particular Pharaoh at the time of the Exodus was merely a symbol (there was nothing wrong or evil about Egypt or other Egyptian Pharaohs - keep in mind that the Israelites entered Egypt centuries before the Exodus to save their lives; see The Goshen Refugees and Joseph, Prime Minister Of Egypt). The "gulf" next time will be of fire, not water (see The Lake Of Fire Into An Ocean Of Fire - When?).
"15:1 And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvellous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God. 15:2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. 15:3 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints. 15:4 Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest." (Revelation 15:1-4 KJV)
Fact Finder: As stated within 1 Corinthians 10:1-4, "that Rock was Christ" brought the Israelites out of their slavery. It was therefore also Jesus Christ Who delivered The Ten Commandments to the people that He delivered in the Exodus. When is the only true Christian Sabbath Day?
