Can you endure?


Exodus

Have you ever just sat back and thought about the story of Exodus?

I mean any good Bible scholar knows of how God called Moses, how Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and how the feast of Passover came to be. But have you ever really looked at the plight of the people?

From what I was able to ascertain, no matter how many times God did something for the children of Israel, they behaved like spoiled brats. How many times did they say:

3And the children of Israel said unto them, Would to God we had died by the hand of the LORD in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the flesh pots, and when we did eat bread to the full; for ye have brought us forth into this wilderness, to kill this whole assembly with hunger. (Exodus 16:3, King James Version)

It was often amazing at how this happened when they were in need of something. It was never said after their needs were fulfilled. To be quite honest, their praises seemed to be forced at times and scripted at others.

The point is to say that the children of Israel endured with conditions. Do we see them trying to help themselves? They truly were a lost flock. Was the Exodus for the children of Israel, or was it for Moses and Aaron to make their calling and election sure?

Yes, the people of Egypt endured many hardships. Yes, they endured many trials. Yes, they are the original chosen of God. What did they do to deserve this favor? The same thing that you and I did…. absolutely NOTHING.

It is foretold that they will be great trials and tribulations during the end of days. Are you Rapture Ready? Can you Endure?

  1. Amen and Amen

  2. So very true, not matter what God did for them, they still rebelled. I think this is how most people behave even today. God is only there when they want something or deliverance from something. Otherwise he is completely ignored.

    Time is getting short and troubles will worsen, we see it happening everyday. We need to follow Jesus’ command and watch and pray!
