Exodus 7:15 -- Exodus 10:17

DIVISIONS BRING COURAGE

Exodus 8:23

"And I will put a division between my people and thy people. . ."

     God has a way of dividing people from one another and from things, as well as groups and organizations. It was of interest to me this morning to see that He divided the Israeli slaves, bound in Egypt, from the powerful Egyptian Pharaoh and his people. Moses was assigned by God, with the help of Aaron his brother, to lead Israel out of Egypt.

     How was he to do this? I am sure Moses wondered, too. God had a way! He always does. He drove hard-hearted Pharaoh to scream out at Moses, "Be gone!" All the awful plagues, found in these chapters and following, ended in the death of every first born of man or animal in the land. "GO! GO! GO!" cried the king!

     But, did you notice in verse 32-b of chapter 12, that Pharaoh implored Moses, "Bless me!" How like those who criticize us. Often in their need, they come to us for help! (ysw)


"CIRCUMCISION OF THE HEART"  
(Joshua 5:3, 8)

It is a type of "separation."
To be "separated" means to walk alone.
Each person must have it personally, and bear its pain.
It was commanded by God at that time after they crossed over the Jordan River.
A sharp knife is used. THE WORD OF GOD IS A SHARP KNIFE! 
It hurts our pride! It hurts our pride! It costs us friends. It makes "separated Christian" a marked people.
The wounds of separation exchange the reproach of Egypt (the world) for the reproach Christ! (GGS)

And Sarah heard it in the tent door, which was behind him.  And they said unto him, Where is Sarah thy wife? And he said, Behold, in the tent. And he said, I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son.  (Genesis 18:10)
