MY FAVORITE SONG!

There is a song in the Bible that was sung in the Book of Exodus. It is also sung in Heaven when the seven angels holding the judgments of God upon a world that has rejected His Son. Exodus 15 is the first time it was sung; Revelation 15 is the second. We should memorize this song because we will be hearing it again!


It is a song of great deliverance by God for a people that were held for 400 years as slaves to a cruel task master. How many years were we bound? How many years has the enemy opposed us and tried to rob us of our conviction that we are truly Sons and Daughters of the Living God; never to be lost again? This cruel taskmaster is pulling out all of the stops in these last of days and it would bode us well if we learn to memorize the times when God interviened on our behalf when the Accuser did everything in his power to bring us down.


Here is the original Song of Moses; and I can think of dozens of times in my life when this song of deliverance was also for me~


" Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD (they sang it to God!)
I will sing unto the LORD for He hath triumphed gloriously;
the horse and his rider hath He thrown into the sea."


" The LORD is my strength and song and He is become my salvation:
He is my God and I will prepare Him an habitation (we are His habitation!)
My father's God, and I will exalt Him."


"The LORD is a man of war:
the LORD is His Name.
Pharaoh's chariots and his host hath He cast into the sea;
his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red Sea."


" The depths have covered them, they sank to the bottom as a stone.
Thy right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power:
Thy right hand, O LORD, hath dashed in pieces the enemy."


"And in greatness of Thine excellency Thou hast overethrown them that rose up against Thee:
Thou sentest forth Thy wrath which consumed them as stubble.
And with the blast of Thy nostrils the waters were gathered together,
the floods stood upright as an heap, and the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea."


" The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil;
my lust shall be satisfied upon them;
I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them."


*Notice the I will's of the enemy....remember what Satan said when he rebelled against God? I will arise up to heaven, I will become like the Most High, I will....

song continued:

" Thou (God) didst bow with Thy wind,
the sea covered them;
they sank as lead in the mighty waters."


" Who is like unto Thee, O LORD, among the gods?
Who is like Thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?
Thou stretchedst out Thy right hand, the earth swallowed them."


" Thou in Thy mercy hast led forth the people which Thou has redeemed:
Thou hast guided them in Thy strength unto Thy holy habitation.
The people shall hear, and be afraid:
sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina"


"The dukes of Edom shall be amazed;
the mighty men of Moab, trembling shall take hold upon them;
all the inhabitants of Canaan shall melt away.
Fear and dread shall fall upon them;
by the greatness of Thine arm they shall be as still as a stone;;
til Thy people pass over, O LORD, till the people pass over, which Thou hast purchased."


"Thou shalt bring them in and plant them in the mountain of Thine inheritance,
in the place, O LORD, which Thou hast made for Thee to dwell in,
in the Sanctuary, O Lord, which Thy hands have etablished."


" The LORD shall reign forever and ever.
For the horse of Pharaoh went in with his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea,
and the LORD brought again the waters of the sea upon them;
but the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst of the sea"


God always, and will continue to give deliverance to His own. We are His, the sheep of His pasture. He will plant us in His holy mountain on the last day. Our enemies will be amazed, trembling, fear and dread shall fall upon them. By the greatness of His Arm our enemy will be as still as stone!


When do we get to sing this song? In Revelation 15~
vs. 3
"And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying,
Great and marvellous are Thy works,
Lord God Almighty,
just and true are Thy ways,
Thou King of the saints.
Who shall not fear Thee, O Lord, and glorify Thy Name?
for Thou only art holy;
for all nations shall come and worship before Thee;
for Thy judgments aare made manifest."


This song, sung this time, as the seven angels appear and prepare to pour out the final judgment upon the earth. It is a song of the great and final victory for the Saints. What a day that will be!
