I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given for you today is from the book of Exodus 6:6 ,“ I will rescue you from their bondage, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgement.”
From the above context we learn that God spoke through Moses to the children of Israel. “I am the Lord, Eternal in his being, immutable in his counsels, faithful to his covenant, and able to fulfil it; and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians; which lay heavy on them, and made them sigh and groan: and I will rid you out of their bondage; in which they were kept, and by which their lives were made bitter: and I will redeem you with an out stretched arm; from heaven to earth. He stretched his arm upon the enemies of his people, and delivered them out of their hands: with great judgments; by sending, many sore plagues and punishments inflicted upon the Egyptians. Thus, the Lord commanded Moses to say to His people. God claims He is Lord over all creation and tells them what plans He has to do for them. He is the One who will redeem them, and it is by this powerful name, “Yahweh” that Israel is going to be delivered. The Lord, then described the things He was about to do for them.
Firstly He said, that He will bring them out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, to get relief from the terrible oppression of labour imposed by the Egyptians. They will leave Egypt and go to the Promised Land. Secondly, He will deliver them, from their bondage; it implies physical separation from the place of danger or oppression. The Lord promised here that the Israelites will be separated from Egyptian slavery. Thirdly, He will also redeem them, with an outstretched arm and with great judgments, shows how the Lord, will accomplish this deliverance. The Lord, said, that He will rescue Israel with an outstretched arm. Fourthly He said that He will make them His people, because “They were bought with a price,” asserting that His people belong to Him because of His death on the cross. Finallythe Lord stated that He will be their God.
God saved His people from the bondage, under the Egyptians Task Masters. God will save you also from your bondages. No matter what kind of bondages you are caught up with. Some of you might have been caught in debts, some in gambling, some in drugs, some may be caught up in unwanted issues. Some may be engaged in some sinful activity. Are you caught up in an incurable disease? May be in court case, or in theft, whatever may be the bondage in which you are caught up, God is going to deliver all of you from such issues. Someone might have done sorcery or witchcraft over you or your family. God will rescue you. He will come suddenly when all your hope is lost and will deliver you from your terrible situation. Rely on God, He will deliver you.
What is the problem that you are facing at this point of time? Don’t worry, Just as He saved His People Israel from their cruel task masters, God will descend upon you, from His Holy mountain to help you and deliver you from your bondage. Jesus Said, “My judgement is just.” Righteousness and Justice are the foundations of God’s throne. So God will do justice to you also as he has promised. For He is the Rock, His work is perfect, for all His ways are justice. A God of truth, and without injustice. Righteous and upright is He. When we have such a God, why worry. Take your problems before the Lord in prayer and He will cause you to be victorious in life. God bless you.
