We have been looking at Israel, at the kind of people they were and the manner of life they had. We have been reminding ourselves that these people were so to say a race of gods, because they operated in ways that defied natural laws and made standards that define human life seem foolish. We saw a people that always know what the universe is serving at every particular point in time, and exactly what they need to do in order to be adequately served, just as it is said of the sons of Issachar who had understanding of the times, and knew what Israel needed to do at all times.
These people never depended on a humanly established strategy for sustainance, they had no process born out of the predictions of the senses in order to make progress. They looked to God for insight into the purpose for each season of life, and the wisdom to get the best out of it, that was how they lived. There is no way to beat a person, or a people that are in agreement with God, and in other words, in perfect harmony with the advancement of the universe. The ever evolving universe produces constant change, which washes away and drowns those things that do not adapt to the change. That is God’s way of rewarding obedience and punishing disobedience to His will. That was the secret of Israel’s dominion, and their enemies knew it, they knew that Israel is unstoppable and unbeatable because of their walk with God, because they kept step with God.
And the children of Israel were fruitful, and increased abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty; and the land was filled with them. Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph. And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we: Come on, let us deal wisely with them; lest they multiply, and it come to pass, that, when there falleth out any war, they join also unto our enemies, and fight against us, and so get them up out of the land. (Exodus 1:7-10 KJV)
So, a certain Pharaoh rose up to power in Egypt, one who had no regard for neither the virtues of knowing and following God’s will, nor the results of such life, which in Egypt was symbolised by Joseph. This Pharaoh and the Egyptians came up with an evil genius of a plan to cut Israel off their source of dominion, because that was the only way to keep them subdued. They came up with a plan that worked so well for four hundred years, which is the same plan that satan had always used since Eden, and still uses against people up until today. We shall look at this plan tomorrow.
