Exodus: The Great Escape

Updated: Jan 17, 2023

“Say, therefore, to the sons of Israel, “I am the Lord, and I will bring you out from the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will deliver you from their bondage. I will also redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments.” Exodus 6:6

The Book of Exodus was written by Moses in first person as he was with God. It is the second book of the Bible. While the main theme of Exodus is redemption, there is a lot to take in when you put it altogether.

We become engaged with the stories of the burning bush and the parting of the red sea and the ten commandments and have missed the whole point of the book! Our times today are no different than those of the Israelites. Leaderless government concerned with itself and not the governance of the people, Fathers, and mothers not willing to love and fight for their sons and daughters and teach them what a man or a woman is by their example so they know what true gender identity is, all of us running from conflict and blaming someone else rather than taking a stand and fighting for what we say we believe in as true warriors of God’s kingdom here on earth.

I’ve struggled with seeing myself as true warrior fighting for my kingdom and God’s kingdom here on earth. Yes, I put on my armor every morning, and read my Bible and participate in men’s groups and go to church but is that training me to fight for what I say I believe in? This week’s DBO’s will wrestle with some of these as we learn about the book of Exodus.

Daily Battle Order:

What do you believe in? What are you willing to sacrifice and fight for as a Kingdom Warrior? The battle is on! Stand and fight!

Joseph had great favor in Egypt at the end of Genesis, and moves his whole family there. Within two generations the kings of Egypt had completely forgotten Joseph and how Egypt was saved from devastating famine by God acting through him. As a result a tyranny arises and the first actions of that tyranny are very telling. First they enslave the Hebrews, and then they ordered the midwives to kill all Hebrew boys as they are being born. What an incredible parallel to America today. Tyranny is encouraging us to forget our history, to nullify our indebtedness to those who…
