Covenant relationship and the full revelation of divinity are the focus, today, as Scriptures are shared on the Exodus.  A writer at “Yahoo! Answers” using the ID “natalie” (Level 1 with 2 points, a member since January 11, 2015) posted the following:

Of the themes of the exodus, which do you feel is most important?

just curious on others thoughts. 🙂

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the LORD my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it.  6 Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.  For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the LORD our God is in all things that we call upon him for?  And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?  Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life:  but teach them thy sons, and thy sons’ sons;  Specially the day that thou stoodest before the LORD thy God in Horeb, when the LORD said unto me, Gather me the people together, and I will make them hear my words, that they may learn to fear me all the days that they shall live upon the earth, and that they may teach their children.  (Deuteronomy 4:  5-10, KJV)

THE DOUBLE DAGGER:  Secular Israel? (04/08/2015); The American Covenant? (03/03/2015); Three Covenants? (06/09/2014); Let Us Make Mankind? (06/10/2014); Covenants and Relationships (01/29/2014); Salvation is Conditional? (01/30/2014); Vows and Covenants? (12/17/2012); The Firstborn, Higher than Kings? (12/18/2012)

“natalie”, here are a few points important to me as a Christian believer.  The Exodus may be viewed as a peculiar aspect of the full revelation from GOD wherein the integrity of divine utterance (we say, breath, promise, word) is the basis for continuing relationship (we say, covenant), multiple sacred operations (e.g., correction, deliverance, inheritance, instruction, judgment, sanctification), and the fulfillment of eternal purposes.  The character, makeup, and nature of divinity are shown to be inseparable elements such as faith, holiness, longsuffering, love, righteousness, wisdom, and wrath against sin:

(1.)  Numbers 23:  19, King James Version (KJV):  19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent:  hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

(2.)  Genesis 46:  2-4, KJV:  2 And God spake unto Israel in the visions of the night, and said, Jacob, Jacob. And he said, Here am I.  3 And he said, I am God, the God of thy father: fear not to go down into Egypt; for I will there make of thee a great nation:  4 I will go down with thee into Egypt; and I will also surely bring thee up again:  and Joseph shall put his hand upon thine eyes.

(3.)  Deuteronomy 7:  6-8, KJV:  6 For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God:  the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.  7 The LORD did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people:  8 But because the LORD loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the LORD brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.

(4.)  Exodus 34:  6-8, KJV:  6 And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth,  7 Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.  8 And Moses made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshipped.

(5.)  Exodus 19:  4-6, KJV:  4 Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles’ wings, and brought you unto myself.  5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people:  for all the earth is mine:  6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.

(6.)  Leviticus 26:  42-45, KJV:  42 Then will I remember my covenant with Jacob, and also my covenant with Isaac, and also my covenant with Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the land.  43 The land also shall be left of them, and shall enjoy her sabbaths, while she lieth desolate without them:  and they shall accept of the punishment of their iniquity:  because, even because they despised my judgments, and because their soul abhorred my statutes.  44 And yet for all that, when they be in the land of their enemies, I will not cast them away, neither will I abhor them, to destroy them utterly, and to break my covenant with them:  for I am the LORD their God.  45 But I will for their sakes remember the covenant of their ancestors, whom I brought forth out of the land of Egypt in the sight of the heathen, that I might be their God:  I am the LORD.

Of course, there is far more to be said, correctly understood, and spiritually digested.  (For example, (7.)  Hebrews 8:  7-9, KJV:  7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second.  8 For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:  9 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith and spiritual maturity.
