ISRAEL'S FREEDOM

Summary

 When the children of Israel first came to Egypt they were well received and were not in bondage. As they matured or multiplied a slave master came and made them slaves. God sent a deliver to them (Moses). There was a sacrifice made and blood applied to the door of every Israelites home to avoided death. The children of Israel believed that through the things God did (pledges, Passover) that they were able to change their lives by leaving Egypt. They showed their faith by pack their things and leaving Egypt. Even though they believed and proved it by leaving Egypt, they were not yet saved from bondage. Not until they come up out of the Red Sea were they saved. The Red Sea is where Pharaoh's ability to keep the children of Israel in bondage was destroyed. Through the obedience of God's word given by Moses, the Israelites went down into the Red Sea with the Pharaoh and they came up out of the Red Sea without the Pharaoh.  Through obedience, water saved them from the bondage of slavery by drowning Pharaoh.

After coming up out of the Red Sea the children of Israel entered a safe area, the wilderness. At first they did not know what to expect or how to act, they needed to be nourished. They had to learn to trust God to provide for them.

 The safe place God gave the children of Israel (the wilderness) was a place to show their commitment to Him and His word, a place where God nourished them with food as they headed for the promise land (Israel). Most of the children of Israel did not commit to God and were separated from the rest through a wondering period where they died and did not enter the promises land. Although they fell short of entering the promise land they were still in the safe place God had provided. Those that did Gods commands cross the river Jordan and entered into the promise land (Israel).

Those who continue to keep Gods commandment will cross the river of life and entered into the promise land (heaven).

2 And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea;
b. 

Heb 11:29  By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned.

c.  Ex.14:22 And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left. 23 And the Egyptians pursued, and went in after them to the midst of the sea, even all Pharaoh’s horses, his chariots, and his horsemen. 24 And it came to pass, that in the morning watch the LORD looked unto the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of the cloud, and troubled the host of the Egyptians,  25 And took off their chariot wheels, that they drave them heavily: so that the Egyptians said, Let us flee from the face of Israel; for the LORD fighteth for them against the Egyptians. 26 And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the sea, that the waters may come again upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen. 27 And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the LORD overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea. 28 And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them. 29  But the children of Israel walked upon dry land in the midst of the sea; and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left. 30 Thus the LORD saved Israel that day out of the hand of the Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the sea shore. 31  And Israel saw that great work which the LORD did upon the Egyptians: and the people feared the LORD, and believed the LORD, and his servant Moses.

After coming up out of the Red Sea the children of Israel entered a safe area, the wilderness. At first they did not know what to expect or how to act, they needed to be nourished. They had to learn to trust God to provide for them.
  a. 

Ex.15:22 ¶  So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water. 23  And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah. 24  And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink? 25  And he cried unto the LORD; and the LORD shewed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them, 26  And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.

After coming up out of water of baptism we enter into the safe place Christ gave us, the church.  At first we do not know what to expect or how to act, The Hebrew writer described a new Christian as one needing milk as a baby would need. Christian are expected to listen to Gods word. We listen to Gods word by reading and studying. By attending worship and bible classes. God expects us to learn and grow.
  a. 

Heb 5:12  For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. 13 For every one that uses milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. 14 But strong meat belongs to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. 1 ¶ Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on to perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God, 2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.
