PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The book of Exodus shows us, using the picture of the Children of Israel leaving Egypt, that the purpose of Christ’s redemptive work is not merely to save us from our sin, but to deliver us from the world, today’s “Egypt” (Acts 2:40, Gal. 1:4). This is so God can gain His kingdom on the earth and build up the church as His dwelling place, just as the Children of Israel built up the tabernacle in the wilderness.

So, in this podcast we continue to consider this picture. Here we see how Pharaoh bargained with Moses, doing everything he could to keep the Children of Israel in bondage in Egypt, just as today Satan makes various offers to us to keep us enslaved in his world-system.

===================

SUMMARY

Christ has redeemed us not merely to deal with our sin, but to deliver us from “this present evil age” so that He can gain His church and His kingdom on the earth.
