    God Witnesses to the People’s Righteousness

    In order to see the full force of this ceremony at this time we must recall the significance of circumcision, and must also know what is meant by “the reproach of Egypt.” Circumcision signified righteousness by faith; 2Romans 4:11. true circumcision, whose praise is not of men, but of God, is obedience to the law, through the Spirit; 3Romans 2:25-29. it is complete distrust of self, and confidence and rejoicing in Christ Jesus. 4Philippians 3:3. In the instance before us we see that God Himself commanded the people to be circumcised, a positive proof that He Himself accepted them as righteous. As with Abraham, so with them, their faith was counted to them for righteousness.EVCO 373.1
