Egypt is the most populated Arab state.
It is a beautiful picture of the soul redeemed from the bondage of [sin] into the glorious liberty of the children of God. God is revealed to us as the Deliverer and Leader of His people, a God near at hand, dwelling among them, concerned with the affairs of their daily life.
His commission to Moses opens with the glorious vision of the Angel of Jehovah note appearing in the Burning Bush. A common little thorn bush of the dessert, ablaze with God!
What a picture of the Incarnation. God manifesting Himself in a visible tangible form 1John 1: Where do we find that Name again?
With many of the types we feel that we may not have interpreted them rightly, but with some we can have no Egypt the troubled giant, for God has told us the meaning.
It is so in this case, and in most of the types of Exodus. It was a slain lamb-- not a living one-- that availed the Israelites in the hour of judgment. I determined not to know anything among you save Jesus Christ, and Him crucified.
The lamb was to be without blemish. Its blood was to be shed and applied to the door-posts. No bone of it was to be broken. In every home that night there was one dead, either the first-born or the lamb in stead of the first-born.
The wages of sin is death. While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. The Israelites were to reckon their life as a nation from the day of the Passover.
Ye must be born again. We were in bondage But God sent forth His Son All the first born-- those who had been redeemed by the blood of the lamb-- were to be sanctified ie. Ye are not your own: The word pasachtranslated '' Pass over ,'' in Ex He will pass over and preserve it.
Not by passing over it in the sense of passing by it, but by fluttering over it, spreading her wings in protection. Thus, Jehovah Himself preserved His people on that awful night when the Destroyer was abroad in the land of Egypt.
It was by the Lord's command that the Destroyer executed His judgment upon Egypt. But Jehovah Himself stood on guard, as it were, at every blood-sprinkled door. He became their Saviour. Nothing short of this is the meaning of the Passover. The first-born in Egypt were saved from death by the lamb slain in their stead.
God's word to them was: In the same way, we may have salvation through Jesus, the Lamb of God, slain in our stead, and assurance through believing God's record that He ''hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in His Son'' 1John 5: The Living Bread and Living Water-- Next, we have a double picture of Christ as the Living Bread and the source of the Living Water, and again we are left in no uncertaintly as to the application of the types.
Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead I am the Living Bread which came down from heaven: How beautifully this follows on from the teaching about the Passover, which Jesus also applied to Himself when He was eating the Passover Feast with His disciples.
He took the bread, which was a recognised part of that feast, and gave thanks and brake it, saying, ''Take, eat; this is My body.
And He took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; for this is My blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins'' Mat When He spoke to His disciples about eating His flesh and drinking His blood, they murmured and said, ''This is an hard saying.
What and if ye shall see the Son of Man ascend up where He was before?
It is the Spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing'' John 6: We see clearly by these words that it is a personal, spiritual appropriation of Christ in His death which avails, and nothing outward.Travelers to the New York City harbor see a marvelous sight.
Standing on a small island in the harbor is an immense statue of a robed woman, holding a book and lifting a torch to the sky. PAUSANIAS was the Greek writer who flourished in the C2nd A.D.

After the tide turned in Egypt, jihadis everywhere gave out a giant “I told you so.” We told you that you couldn’t trust elections, we told you that you couldn’t trust the West.
