Summary of Exodus’ Teaching (ASB)

•  God fulfils his promises. The population growth in Egypt of the children of Israel was the beginning of the fulfilment of God’s promise to make Abraham into a great nation (Genesis 12:2). God promised Abraham “so many descendants that, like the dust of the earth, they cannot be counted!” (Genesis 13:16).

•  Even an evil sovereign ruler cannot defeat God’s plans. Pharaoh had tried to insure that no Jewish baby boy would survive. But with a clear indication that God’s plans will not fail, Pharaoh’s daughter rescued Moses and raised him in Pharaoh’s court. God provided Moses the best education and the best preparation for the task of leading Israel out of Egypt. This is a powerful reminder that “God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them” (Romans 8:28).

•  God is a deliverer from suffering, discrimination, oppression, and bitterness. He guides, cares for, protects, and leads his people in their journey of faith. He desires to live with his people and asks for their consecration in worship and life.

•  The places we go for refuge can quickly turn into places of bondage. The children of Israel went to Egypt for relief from famine and wound up as slaves. Many people seek a refuge from trouble through the occult and places that promise a “direct connection” to God. They soon realise that evil has enslaved them.
