Exodus Ch.6

Abba Father, we thank you for this holy week and all that You are doing in our lives and in the lives of everyone around the world. We ask that You touch hearts and souls for those who are grieved in their hearts, bodies or minds In the Name of Jesus. Comfort them LORD Jesus. Right now, we ask that Your Word speaks to us today and forever more as we read and share it In the Name of Jesus, Amen.


Chapter 5 ended with the children of Israel that were completely discouraged by the increased hard labour that Pharaoh had imposed on them because of Moses and Aaron's request for Pharaoh to permit them to leave Egypt. We see that their discouragement also rubbed off on Moses as He returns to God and asks Him, "Lord, why have You brought trouble on this people? Why is it You have sent me? For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in Your name, he has done evil to this people; neither have You delivered Your people at all." (Exodus 5:22-23).

Sometimes when a Word or promise is spoken by the LORD, there is a gestation period and Israel's deliverance out of the hands of Pharaoh's bondage and slavery is no exception to this.


Chapter 6 starts off with God re assuring Moses firstly of the nature of His supreme being. This was important because one cannot be equipped for a war when they don't have a full revelation of the power of your ally, in this case the LORD your God. The children of Israel and Moses knew about God, but they did not have a full revelation of His power and who He is which is the reason the bondage and the slavery appeared to be more real than God's love for them in that moment.


He then proceeds to tell Moses, "I am the LORD. I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, as God Almighty, but by My name LORD I was not known to them." (Exodus 6:2-3).

God was telling Moses that His being as LORD was more high above and superior to any circumstance and Pharaoh was not an exception. We also see the superiority that is found in the name of the LORD in the New Testament, where "That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow of things in heaven, of things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." (Philippians 2:10-11). This is the power of the name LORD. Literally no force of darkness, plans, curses, counsel, principality, person, etc can stand in the presence of the Father's powerful and majestic name 'LORD'.


In Exodus 6:6 God instructs Moses, "Therefore say to the children of Israel: I am the LORD; I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, I will rescue you from their bondage, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments." Moses went ahead to comfort the children of Israel that delivery from the LORD God was assured but again, they did not listen to Moses because their spirits were discouraged from the cruel bondage (Exodus 6:9). Sometimes, hard times may come, and you may have already confessed Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour meaning He saved you from death, hell and the grave. Not only does He give you a new identity and inheritance to all the blessings in the kingdom of God, but you also become one where you can no longer do life without Him as your Lord with the help of the Holy Spirit. Be encouraged friend because Jesus is LORD over every negative circumstance or hardship and His power will manifest in your life. Continue trusting, praying and believing Him for your breakthrough as your LORD because He is faithful.

Unlike the children of God today, God's children then did not have the Holy Spirit but God's love for them was manifested through God's kept promise to Abraham (Exodus 6:8) in which He raised up a leader, Moses, who delivered God's people from their cries and hardship in Egypt.
