April 7: Passover

– I Will Rescue You

Exodus 6:6b

I will set you free from being slaves to them.

When people are slaves, they want freedom most of all. They cry, “Get me out of here!”

The word in Hebrew means a violent ripping away, just like two pieces of Velcro being ripped apart! It also means to snatch away, deliver, rescue, save and plunder.

God not only rescued Israel from the slavery of Egypt, but He also took or plundered the expensive things from the Egyptians.  Israel came to Egypt as a poor family but left as a rich nation with precious metals like gold and silver as well as costly fabric of purple, scarlet and white linen. Israel used all these things to build God’s tabernacle in the desert.

In the New Testament, the same word is used to show how God saves all who believe from the slavery of sin.

Colossians 1:13-14

He has saved us from the kingdom of darkness. He has brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves. 14 Because of what the Son has done, we have been set free. Because of him, all our sins have been forgiven.

PRAY GOD WILL ONCE AGAIN RESCUE ISRAEL FROM THE BONDAGE OF SIN.

God’s love provides the way of forgiveness to
those, who in faith, repent of their sins.
