DELIVERED FROM OPPRESSION (EXODUS 1)
Series: Movement of God's People
Reading: Exodus 1
God used Joseph to spare Israel from starvation and now in Egypt, they multiplied and grew in strength. Joseph died and under new Egyptian rule what he did was forgotten and Pharaoh saw the Israelites as a threat and made them slaves treating them brutally.
As human beings, we are a threat to Satan. We have been called to replace him as chief worshippers, destroying all his works, and enforcing the eternal reign of Christ throughout the earth.
Satan is not going to bow down and surrender, he is going to try to keep us oppressed by wearing us down, crushing our will, where we lose all hope. Rather than turning to God we instead blame God becoming bitter wishing we were dead.
To reduce the population Pharaoh gave orders to Hebrew midwives to kill all baby boys that were born. But, because the midwives feared God they didn’t follow His orders and the Israelites continued to multiply. So, Pharaoh gave orders to his people to throw all newborns into the Nile river.
Satan wants to reduce the population, he loves birth control, pro-choice, infanticide, suicide, terrorism, and war. He hates humans inspiring them to kill, steal, and destroy.
God desires His children to be fruitful and to multiply. He wants us to partner with Him to spread life and to destroy the works of darkness.
If you are under oppression cry out for deliverance, and it will come. If you have been delivered like Moses you are called to now deliver others. You have the anointing to destroy yokes, remove burdens, setting the captives free, releasing the oppressed from bondage.
