Everyone who has been set free by the blood of the Lamb escapes the snare of the trapper. The blood shed on the cross delivered us from death to life, from bondage to freedom, from darkness into light. However, just like Israel, between Egypt and the promised land is a wilderness we must walk through. The wilderness is not punishment it is cleansing us from Egyptian mindsets, it’s removing off us bondage baggage, and it’s restoring our souls.
If one continues the journey through the wilderness the day will come when you are truly free. If you choose to halt, hinder or retreat from the process of the wilderness you will either go back to the bondage of sin or you will camp in the wilderness and become religious. But for those who persevere, who press on, who fall but get back up again, there is a promised land on earth where you remain an overcomer. Joshua and Caleb made it here; Deborah and Esther made it here; and so can you and I.
You’ve escaped the snare of Egypt, keep going the best is in front of you not behind you. I know because I can see it, I can smell it, I can taste it, I can hear it. This is one of the many things Passover is about.
Psalm 124:7 “Our soul has escaped as a bird out of the snare of the trapper;
The snare is broken and we have escaped.”
