Types Of Christ In The Old Covenant: Moses Pt 1

Moses and Aaron Stand Before Moses

 Lk 11:20-22 But if I drive out demons by the finger of God, then the kingdom of God has come upon you. When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own house, his possessions are safe. But when someone stronger attacks and overpowers him, he takes away the armour in which the man trusted and divides up his plunder. (NIV

 God sent Moses as a deliverer and Saviour to set the Israelites free from the bondage and slavery of Egypt. Moses was to perform signs and wonders to show Pharaoh and the Egyptians that God was El-Shaddai, the Almighty God. (Ex 3:7,8,10)

 Moses performed 10 signs. Each time he performed a sign, the magicians of Pharaoh duplicated it. But by the 4th sign (a swarm of mosquitoes [lice] that covered the land), the magicians could not duplicate it.

 Ex 8:18,19 Now the magicians so worked with their enchantments to bring forth lice, but they could not. Then the magicians said to Pharaoh, This is the finger of God. (NKJV)

 It was now obvious to the Egyptians that God was indeed El Shaddai. Only He was the Almighty God. He was showing that he was stronger than the magicians in Pharaoh’s house.

 Moses went on to perform the 10 signs by which time he forced Pharaoh not only to let the people go but to send them out of Egypt laden down with silver and gold. (Ex 12:35,36)

 Christ Brings In His Kingdom.

 This story is a prophetic picture of Christ and His Church, and how He establishes His kingdom upon the earth.

 1) Moses: Speaks of Christ. Christ is our great deliverer  and Saviour, who performed signs and wonders upon the earth to show that His Father was indeed El-Shaddai the Almighty God. (Acts 2:22)

 2)The finger of God: Speaks of the authority and power of God. (Lk 11:20, Mt 12:28)

 3)    The Israelites: Speak of the Church. People who were once in bondage and slavery to sin. (Acts 7:38)

 4)   Pharaoh: Speaks of satan who is the god of this world, the prince of darkness. (Jn 12:31, 2 Cor 4:4)

 5)   Egypt: Speaks of the house of this world which is ruled over by the kingdom of darkness. (Ex 13:3)

 Jesus came as the deliverer and Saviour of the world. He used the authority and power of God (the finger of God) to perform signs and wonders that set people free from the bondage and slavery of sin, demon spirits, sickness and death.

 He was and is the stronger man of Lk 11:20-22 who defeated satan on the cross. He stripped him of all his armour, thus putting him to shame. He overcame him and broke into his house, the kingdom of darkness and plundered all his goods.

Col 2:15 He stripped all the spiritual tyrants in the universe of their sham authority at the Cross and marched them naked through the streets. ( MSG)

 What are his goods? They are the people he kept in captivity to sin and everything he stole from them. Their health, families, riches, possessions and lives.

 Now ‘in Christ’ we can have restored to us everything that satan has stolen from us. Praise The Lord!

 As we look to Him and trust Him, He not only saves us from sin, but also freely gives us all things to enjoy.

 Rom 8:32 Indeed, he who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all how will he not also, along with him, freely give us all things? (NET)

 We can receive from Christ, everything we lost to satan!

 The Lord Jesus Christ is establishing His Kingdom upon the earth and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. They shall not be able to stop its advancement!

Meditation Point: Jesus has set us free from the kingdom of darkness, and as we look to Him, He will restore all the things that satan has stolen from our lives!
