Shalom. Our teaching this morning will be from Exodus 15.1-8.
READ EXODUS 15.18
This song of course celebrates GOD’s defeat of the Egyptians at the Red Sea, and projects the wonderful enthusiasm of the people over their miraculous rescue from death and disaster; the defeat of Pharaoh and his armies, and their ongoing journey to the Promised Land, Eretz Y’Isreal, the Land of Israel.
Who is like you O LORD among the gods? Who is like Thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praise, doing wonders? You stretch out Your right Hand, the earth swallowed them. You in Your mercy have led forth the people which You have redeemed. You have guided them in your strength to Your holy habitation. The LORD will reign forever and ever, for He has triumphed gloriously. The horse and his rider has He thrown into the sea.
EXODUS 15.1 We sing to The LORD often to express our praise to The LORD our GOD, our thanksgiving and our adoration for Him. We honor Him. We sing to The LORD our GOD in triumph when He delivers us from problems and stress. We sing to The LORD because of our love for Him and we rejoice over Him. And in all the emotions of life, we sing to The LORD our GOD and praise Him. I will sing praises to The LORD because He has dealt bountifully with me. The horse and his rider has He thrown into the sea. Yes, The LORD will always rescue you and save you.
EXODUS 15.2 Whether you know it or not, The LORD your GOD has created many miracles for you throughout your life. He is your Salvation, Yeshua is your Deliverer. You can trust in Him and never be afraid. He is your strength and your song.
He has become my Salvation in Hebrew is: VAH YEH HE LEE LEE YESHUA
Meaning, And to me He is for Salvation, for deliverance, for rescue and safety.
I will prepare Him a habitation in Hebrew is: VAY AHN VAYHOO meaning I will glorify Him.
EXODUS 15.3 GOD is a warrior, a man of war. He is our Deliverer and Salvation. GOD appointed Deborah the prophetess, and Barak the commander of the armies of Israel to destroy the enemies of Israel. And Jael, or in Hebrew YAHALE, the wife of Heber, a Midianite, and a descendant of the family of Moses. And she killed the commander of the Canaanite army. And after their victory, Deborah and Barak sang to The LORD, saying praise ye The LORD for taking revenge on the enemies of Israel.
And yes, The LORD is a man of war. Yehovah is His Name. In Hebrew YEHOVAH SHEMO, Yehovah is His Name.
EXODUS 15.4-6 When The LORD delivered David from all his enemies, and from the hand of King Saul, and as GOD saved the children of Israel from Pharaoh’s armies, The LORD saved David. And The Bible says, David spoke to The LORD the words of this song. 2 SAMUEL 22.1-7 etc.
The Song Moses and the children of Israel sang reads, Your right Hand, O LORD has become glorious in power. Your right hand, O LORD has dashed in pieces the enemy.
EXODUS 15.7-8 The day will come when millions upon millions will sing praises to The LORD GOD in Heaven. And we will sing The Song of Moses, the servant of GOD, and the Song of The Lamb, saying great and marvellous are Your works LORD GOD Almighty, just and true are Your ways Thou King of Saints. REVELATION 15.1-8
They sing The Song of Moses. And yes, one day you and I will sing The Song of Moses in Heaven with millions of others, with angels and saints, those holy in The LORD. Who is like unto You O LORD among the gods? Who is like You, Glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?
GOD appointed Moses to become a great leader of the children of Israel, the Jewish people. And GOD also appointed Moses to be His lawgiver. That is, GOD told Moses His Words and His Laws, and Moses told them to the people to hear and obey them. And we are taught from The Bible that GOD HAS ONLY ONE LAW, THE LAW OF MOSES. And His Law is for the angels in Heaven, and all mankind on earth. Even GOD Himself is accountable to His Word and Law. GOD is obligated to live by His own Law, The Law of Moses. He exalts His Word above all His Name. Psalm 138.2. And we too should live by GOD’s Word and His Law.
EXODUS 15.9-13 And as GOD dried up the sea for His people to go on dry ground to continue their journey to the Promised Land, GOD, in the end of days will lead the redeemed of The LORD to Zion, and everlasting joy will be upon their heads. ISAIAH 51.4-16
VERSE 4 Hearken means listen and obey Me.
The Law is Torah, The Law of Moses
My judgment is GOD’s decisions and sentences according to Torah.
For a light. The Law is light, Proverbs 6.23, for the people.
VERSE 5 GOD’s righteousness, which is in The Law will never be abolished. It will never end or change.
Read Phillipians 3.6
VERSE 7 Those who know righteousness have GOD’s Law of Moses in their heart, even today.
VERSE 9 The Arm of The LORD is Messiah Yeshua.
VERSE 10 The ransomed are those GOD delivers and redeems.
VERSE 11 The redeemed are those whom GOD rescues and delivers.
EXODUS 15.14-18 VERSE 14 Palestina is the Philistines. The Hebrew is PEH LAH SHET, meaning Philistines.
The LORD shall reign forever and ever. The LORD is Yehovah, Yeshua The Messiah, The King Who will reign forever and ever. He is your Deliverer and Saviour.
We read of another Song of Moses. But this song The LORD commanded Moses to write, and teach it to the children of Israel. The time was just prior to the death of Moses when he had completed writing the Words of GOD’s Law in a Book. The Book is The Torah from Genesis to Deuteronomy that includes GOD’s Law, His teachings and His instructions.
And Moses had The Book of The Law placed in the side of the Ark of the Covenant for a witness against the children of Israel. The Law being a witness against them when they forsake GOD and break His Word and His Law; evil consequences will follow. But for those who hear GOD and obey His Voice, Paul writes, they will be justified because the Truth is in The Law, Romans 2.13, 20, and blessings will follow, Leviticus 26.
DEUTERONOMY 31.16-19 VERSE 16 GOD’s Covenant is His Word and His Law. Psalm 105.7-10.
And here are some of the words of the Song of Moses that GOD commanded him to write. DEUTERONOMY 31.30, DEUTERONOMY 32.1-21
VERSE 4 All His ways are judgment – All GOD’s decisions and sentences, good or bad are according to His Law, the Law of Moses.
VERSE 12 Him is Jacob, Israel
VERSE 15 When breaking GOD’s Law, GOD sees that disobedience as despising Him.
VERSE 20 Faith is belief in GOD, and obedience to Him.
Let’s look at Deuteronomy 32.1-2, Very important words.
DEUTERONOMY 32.1-2 GOD has given us laws and doctrines, and teachings for all His Creation. They are for the angels in Heaven, and every human being on earth. GOD Himself is obligated to live by His own doctrine. Why not us also?
Why doesn’t everybody obey GOD’s doctrine, His Law and His Teachings? His Laws are simple, not difficult, and it brings blessings.&n
bsp; But opposition to His Law brings trouble, sometimes evil.
The LORD GOD chose the Jewish people to be His witnesses, Isaiah 43.10-12, to write The Word of GOD, and His Law in The Bible, for all the world. But yet, the majority of mankind oppose it, and reject it. Why? Genesis 3.15 gives us the answer.
GENESIS 3.15 These words spoken by GOD came immediately after Adam and Eve disobeyed The LORD doing what He told them not to do. Don’t eat the fruit from a certain tree. But satan, as everyone knows, tricked them into disobeying GOD.
And GOD said to satan the serpent, I will put enmity between you and the woman, that is, I will put hatred and hostility between you satan, and the woman. The woman is Israel, the Jewish people, see Revelation 12.13. And between your seed satan. satan’s seed are the demons and Jew-haters. And her seed, the seed of the Jewish people is Messiah Yeshua, Galatians 3.16. And Messiah is GOD Almighty. It shall bruise your head. Messiah will deal a death-blow to you satan, 2 Thessalonians 2.8. He will destroy you. And you satan will briuse the heel of Messiah. You will crucify Him, and you will cause trouble and persecution to His people, the Jewish People. But that will all be temporary.
These words have always intrigued me because it is GOD Himself Who has put enmity and hatred between satan and the Jewish people, and between satan’s demons, the anti-Semites against the Jewish people. Read Jewish history. Read the newsapers today about Israel. But why? Why the enmity and hatred of GOD’s Chosen People?
The word enmity in Hebrew is AYVAH meaning hatred and hostility.
Enmity means a deep-seated dislike, and ill feelings for the Jewish people. And that enmity brings wars, many wars against the Jews because of satan’s hatred for the Jewish people. But listen to this – Enmity also means OPPOSITION to the Jews, and to their laws, The Laws of GOD that are The Law of Moses. satan opposes GOD’s Laws. satan rejects GOD’s Law of Moses. And as satan tricked Adam and Eve to disobey GOD, he has tricked the world to disobey GOD, and oppose and reject His Law of Moses.
The Jewish people are GOD’s Chosen People. GOD gave birth to us, Deuteronomy 32.18. GOD appointed us to be His witnesses to the world to reveal His Word and His Law to the world. And we accomplished that in The Bible, in The Old and New Testaments. And when the nations, and even some of His Jewish people hate the Jews, and oppose GOD’s Law, they in fact hate GOD, and oppose Him…I believe this also is PART of GOD’s plan of Salvation, for Yeshua The Messiah, Who is GOD Almighty, said in Matthew 22.14, for many are called but few are chosen. Many are “invited” but few are chosen. Few are selected and elected. That is why it is so important to obey GOD, and His Law of Moses.
The gate is narrow, Messiah said, and few enter into it, few enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.
Few find it. Few enter Heaven because they oppose God by rejecting His Law of Moses. That’s why it’s so important to obey GOD, every Word that proceeds out of His Mouth, Matthew 4.4, and that includes His Law of Moses, if you hope to enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. Read Matthew 7.21-23, the Words of Yeshua the Messiah.
So let’s close on these words of Scripture that Messiah taught in JOHN 14.21-23.
Obedience to God’s Commandments and Law is required to receive the Holy Spirt, and to enter into His Kingdom. And that is why it is so important to keep GOD’s Law, The Law of Moses, and obey it: that is the teaching of the Song of Moses in Deuteronomy 32. Therefore, it is critical that you are not part of the enmity against Israel and the Jewish People. The Lord your God teaches you to bless His People, the Jewish People, and obey the Laws of GOD, the Law of Moses.
