While watching Ten Commandments by Cecil B. DeMille I was struck by the way that God used all of His story, in both the Old Testament and the New Testament, to point the way to Him.
After the final plague comes through Egypt the Pharaoh releases the Israelites from their bondage. They were free. It made me think of how we, as Believers, are released from bondage by the blood of Christ.
Over the years I have learned a number of different things about the Exodus. The plagues themselves were against the idols of Egypt. The Egyptians worshipped the river gods, frog gods, sky gods, snake gods, certain animals, etc. All of these things were destroyed because of Pharaoh’s hard heart. During the last plague the blood was placed on the door posts in the same places of Jesus’ pierced hands and feet and where the crown of thorns was placed on His head.
There are so many amazing ways the God proved He was the One True God.
The best way though comes tomorrow– Easter Morning… The tomb was empty then and my heart is now full.
Hallelujah, Hallelujah. The tomb is empty, Jesus lives.
