Today:[Exodus Chapter Twenty-Two] Expose the enemy, receive the double portion. Laws concerning trespass. When you identify the thief you will receive full restoration of all that is lost. In this chapter we see the clear promise of God to restore all that the enemy of your soul has taken ONCE he is exposed. A powerful teaching on how to expose the enemy and reclaim the spoil and the blessing of God over your life.
Today:[Exodus Chapter Twenty-One (Continued) Are we subject to the Law of Moses today? Laws concerning manslaughter covered. Cities of refuge established. Consequences of mistreatment of parents. Laws concerning abuse of servants / employees. The higher law than “eye for an eye” established by Christ.
Today:[Exodus Chapter Twenty-One] Bondservants of Christ. Moses presents laws relating to slavery. The introduction of equitable treatment of women, a completely novel concept in ancient times.

Today:[Exodus Chapter Twenty] Seventh Day Glory: The “Seventh Day” or “Sabbath Rest” mandated in the Old Covenant is a foreshadowing of a massive shift in the seventh millennia of man’s time on earth (which we are in today.)

[Exodus Chapter Eighteen] Moses is exhausted, the people are frustrated, and the trek to Canaan is faltering.

Today: [Exodus Chapter Seventeen] The people of God move to Rephidim and cry out for water. God brings water from the rock – a type of Christ. Rephidim means “leaning on another for support”. Aaron and Hur hold up Moses hands and the people prevail in battle. Whose hands are you holding up? Amalek “the bottom feeder” finds himself in God’s crosshairs because he attacked the people of God when they were vulnerable.
Today: [Exodus Chapter Sixteen] “The Bread of God” As the Isrealites move deeper into the wilderness God rains Manna down upon them. Centuries later Jesus declares He was that Manna – the Living Bread. The Isrealites could only gather for one day or it would spoil. Yesterday’s Manna would always breed worms. We cannot live on yesterday’s experiences we need a relevant and living experience in God for today’s challenges.
Today: [Exodus Chapter Fifteen] “Enjoying Your Testimony and Managing Your Victory” The Song of Moses. Miriam dances before the Red Sea. The Waters of Marah and the Wells of Elah.
