Foreshadows of Christ

Then the LORD said unto Moses, Now shalt thou see what I will do to Pharaoh: for with a strong hand shall he let them go, and with a strong hand shall he drive them out of his land. Exodus 6:1

Things seemed very bleak for the Israelites right now, think about this a man named Moses returned to Egypt after 40 years of hiding in the wilderness, he confronted Pharaoh which just made him angry, and now Pharaoh is oppressing the Israelites even more severely than before. Moses feels defeated, he was called by God but sees noway how this is going to work

Notice how God responded to Moses, God is going to use Pharaoh and this impossible circumstance to reveal his Glory! Moses has no idea how God is going to accomplish this but God promised! This is faith, we may not know all the details but we know God is in complete control!

And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the LORD: And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them. Exodus 6:2-3

I find this very interesting, how did God reveal himself to Abraham , Isaac, and Jacob? If you read through my commentary on the book of Genesis, you will see God incarnate Jesus revealed himself to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob

Through this journey of the Israelite’s deliverance from slavery , God is going to reveal the foreshadows of Christ! Just as Moses by God will deliver the Israelite’s from the slavery of Egypt, Jesus has freed us from the slavery of sin and death!

And I have also established my covenant with them, to give them the land of Canaan, the land of their pilgrimage, wherein they were strangers. Exodus 6:4

Next God reveals how He is going to establish the Mosaic Covenant , better known as the Old Covenant. And he also reveals the Promised Land of Canaan, which is modern day Israel

These are foreshadows of Christs New Covenant and the New Heavens and Earth to come! Through The Law God it will reveal our sinful nature and our need for Christ, these things will all be revealed through the Exodus Amen!
