The Light of Christ Journey

Encouraging people on their journey with Christ

God is able... God is at work... He is the one who rescues us "For ...

As we open the pages of Scriptures, we encounter a God who is a God of rescue. His very nature is to save, and He proves that by sending His only Son Jesus to die for our sins on the cross at Calvary. The most pivotal point of all human history took place almost 2000 years ago when Jesus went to the cross. In our story of Moses, we see an amazing story of rescue.

Exodus 7:14 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Pharaoh’s heart is stubborn, and he still refuses to let the people go. 15 So go to Pharaoh in the morning as he goes down to the river. Stand on the bank of the Nile and meet him there. Be sure to take along the staff that turned into a snake. 16 Then announce to him, ‘The Lord, the God of the Hebrews, has sent me to tell you, “Let my people go, so they can worship me in the wilderness.” Until now, you have refused to listen to him. 17 So this is what the Lord says: “I will show you that I am the Lord.” Look! I will strike the water of the Nile with this staff in my hand, and the river will turn to blood. 18 The fish in it will die, and the river will stink. The Egyptians will not be able to drink any water from the Nile.’ ” [1]

God would send plague after plague upon Egypt so the Egyptians would let the Hebrew people go. As the story unfolds later in the book of Exodus, the Pharaoh would finally let the people go and they would be rescued.

Although the Lord would rescue the Hebrew people physically, His greater goal was to rescue them spiritually. The signs, miracles and wonders of the plague would point to a God who is worthy of your faith as a Savior.

The Apostle Paul write in Colossians 1:13, “For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son, 14 who purchased our freedom and forgave our sins.” [2]
