Now I see why Children of Israel has to suffer in the strange land, so they can be able to listen to God, where God will set before them his plan for salvation because since man fall, God has been planning how to redeem man.
So children of Israel are designed to pay the cost on behalf of the entire world, as the people God has chosen, separated to embark on the journey to the Egypt from Egypt to the wilderness where they will meet the lord to explain to them his plan to redeem humanity.
Based on the fact that God has entered into covenant with Noah that he will not destroy the world again.
Gen8; 20-22 ’’ then Noah built an alter for the Lord, and took off every clean animals and of every clean bird, and offered burnt offerings on the altar. 21 And when the Lord smelt the pleasing odor, the lord said in his heart, I will never again curse the ground because of humankind, for the inclination nor will I ever again destroy every living creatures as I have done. 22 As long as the earth endures, seed time and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease’’.
As humanity after Noah continued to sin against God after the flood, God in search of eternal redemption for man. God decided to go into a journey of marriage with (Israel) through Abraham.
Israel became the center of God’s planned redemption. Now I see why God told Abraham that your generation after you will be a slave in a strange land, but after 400 years, I will bring them out and give them a land filled with milk and honey.
Here God is looking for an avenue where he will be completely a ruler to this people and also give them his law, status, and ordinances. God just wanted to reveal himself to the people. He is looking for people that will understand, obey, and work with him
So without God sending them to Egypt to suffer as a slave, it is impossible for them to accept to go through wilderness.
In God plan or deal with Abraham, he told him, Gen 12 ;1-3
I will make you a nation
I will bless you
I will make your name great
And you shall be a blessing
I will bless those who bless you
I will cause those who cause you
In you all families of earth shall be bless
I see why God has to fight king pharaoh when he took Abraham wife, God put plagues on his family in Gen 12; 15-20
In Gen 15 the issues of child began
In vs Gen 15; 5, God entered into covenant that his descendant will be as stars of heaven
God told Abraham I am the one that brought you out of the land of Chaldeans to give you a milk land to inherit.
We are discussing on Brazen Alter, here God is setting up a nation where he will dwell among his people.
All this process is a way to get human attention toward God’ plan for final redemption because sin removed man from garden where God placed him permanently.
Blessed is the man, who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful But his delights is in the law of the Lord, and in his law he meditates day and night. he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither, and whatever, he does shall prosper.
As God sort for man to be his companion, kindly make yourself available to be the Lord’s place.
1 God please take me back to garden according to your plan from beginning.
2 God I want to be your companion.
3 God reveal your plan and purpose in my life.
