When The Israelite forefathers were in slavery, under the Egyptian’s rule, Yaweh was looking to release them from bondage. Success. Through Moses, the Israelites were manutmitted. The Israelits had spent a long time subject to the cultural influence of Pharaoh and his religious, occultic system of living. The pagan ways were woven into them pretty severely. The Israelites still remembered their God, Yaweh, but because of the Egyptian captivity the Israelites were heavily influenced by paganism and occultic ways and worship.
Physically, our Israelite forefathers were no longer enslaved. Mentally, emotionally and spiritually though, there was still a lot of work to be done to bring them out of bondage. God shows us that the battle against their spiritual bondage wasonly just beginning after the red sea crossing by causing them to wander in a small desert for 40 years. Getingt them from point A to point B would have taken all of a few weeks at the most if they had walked straight there.
Reading the saga of The Israelite movement from Egyptian captivity, to wandering in the desert, and then on to promised land, a believer will find a slew of events where God challenged the belief system the Israelites had held, gave the people a chance to repent once He showed the Israelites their fault, and then destroyed those refusing to be of faith. That order took place more than once in the history of our spiritual ancestors The Israelites.
Some people think that God’s wrath is not as existent as it use to be, if at all. You see, just like with our Israelite forefathers, God’s wrath still does exist today, but God does not come right out and tell us that it is His wrath unless we are really looking for Him.
<God, Who at sundry times and in divers manners spoke unto the fathers by the prophets, but in these last days has spoken unto us by His Son.> You see Jesus, being The Heir of All Things and The Creator of The Worlds has the power to speak to us today in many ways. His wrath is poured out on America everyday through various diseases, family feud’s, acts of terrorism, natural disasters and mental illness. It is hard to accept that God’s wrath is the awful things that happen around us because it forces us to admit that God is punishing us. Admitting God is punishing us is admitting fault, and admitting fault is the first step to living in freedom. Satan does not want you to live in freedom.
Answer God’s call, give Him your life, and watch the wrath slowly begin to be replaced with peace, long suffering, joy and wisdom. Don’t be fooled into thinking that an alter call or giving your life to a church is going to save you. That won’t work. Man up and actually whole heartedly give Him your life. All of it.
