The Covenant God

Exodus 6:1-9; Hebrews 8

Brief Sermon Overview +/-

Through the Exodus account the Holy Spirit exhibits for us both the Temporal and Spiritual deliverance of God's people from the wrath of Pharaoh, and the evil taskmasters of sin's hard bondage.

By use of the Lawgiver, God's man Moses, a great type of the Lord Christ, God shows how Christ brings His people from sin's hard bondage, to regeneration, to justice, to dominion and finally to everlasting life.

After identifying Himself to Moses as the Sovereign, and Eternal Great I AM, God now sets His plan in motion. And yet, this plan is not only a mere deleiverence from Egyptian bondage, and Pharaoh's tyanny. It has far reaching implications.

God is calling Israel to a complete transformation, and thus a total restructuring of Hebraic society by particular adherence to His Holy Law.

He will now reveal Himself directly, and experientially, to the Hebrew people as the God of the Covenant, the Eternal Jehovah. Once Israel is again reminded of God's Covenant Name, the liberation process will begin.
