Exodus 8.23 And I will put a division between my people and thy people: to morrow shall this sign be.
Jehovah spoke those words to Pharaoh, ruler of Egypt. The Pharoah’s were considered to be gods incarnate. But Pharoah’s and every other person who thinks they are deity sooner or later find out that there is only one True and Living God.
Note how God places a division between His people and those who remain in unbelief. Some scholars tell us that the word division can also be translated redemption. In other words, it is God’s redemption of His people that separates them from all others.
He sent redemption unto His people: He hath commanded His covenant for ever: holy and reverend is His Name.
Beloved in Jesus, we have been the recipients of God’s redemption through faith in Jesus Christ. This redemption that we have in Christ is far more than forgiveness of sin. Like Israel was delivered out of Egypt through the Passover lamb, we are delivered out of the bondages and clutches of Satan through the victory of Christ on His cross.
Let Israel hope in the Lord: for with the Lord there is mercy, and with him is plenteous redemption. Indeed our redemption is a plenteous one! Our God is a Plenteous Redeemer. For this Plenteous Redeemer to call us My people is precious indeed. Though broken and weak, God has made us complete in Christ. Though poor in this world, God has made us rich in Christ. Though overwhelmed at times and in despair, Hod has made us more than counqueors in Christ.
Dear ones, when the forecast of life is gloomy, look up to your Plenteous Redeemer Who calls you His own.
