    The Object of Delivering Israel from Egypt

    In the first place, when Moses was sent to deliver Israel, his message to Pharaoh was, “Thus saith the Lord, Israel is My son, even my firstborn; and I say unto thee, Let My son go, that he may serve me.” 1Exodus 4:22, 23.EVCO 152.2

    The object of the deliverance from Egypt was that Israel might serve the Lord, an evidence that they were not serving Him there.EVCO 152.3

    So again we read that “He remembered His holy promise, and Abraham His servant. And He brought forth His people with joy, and His chosen with gladness; and gave them the lands of the heathen; and they inherited the labour of the people; that they might observe His statutes, and keep His laws.” 2Psalm 105:42-45.EVCO 152.4

    But strongest of all the evidence that Israel had joined in the idolatry of Egypt is found in the reproach for their not forsaking it. “Thus saith the Lord God: In the day when I chose Israel, and lifted up Mine hand unto the seed of the house of Jacob, and made Myself known unto them in the land of Egypt ... then said I unto them, Cast ye away every man the abominations of his eyes, and defile not yourselves with the idols of Egypt; I am the Lord your God. But they rebelled against Me, and would not hearken unto Me; they did not every man cast away the abominations of their eyes, neither did they forsake the idols of Egypt.” 3Ezekiel 20:5-8.EVCO 152.5
