“Moses assumed his fellow Israelites would realize that God had sent him to rescue them, but they didn’t. “The next day he visited them again and saw two men of Israel ﬁghting. He tried to be a peacemaker. ‘Men,’ he said, ‘you are brothers. Why are you ﬁghting each other?’ “But the man in the wrong pushed Moses aside. ‘Who made you a ruler and judge over us?’ he asked? “So God sent back the same man his people had previously rejected when they demanded, ‘Who made you a ruler and judge over us?’ Through the angel who appeared to him in the burning bush, God sent Moses to be their ruler and savior. And by means of many wonders and miraculous signs, he led them out of Egypt, through the Red Sea, and through the wilderness for forty years.”Acts of the Apostles 7:25-27, 35-36
Did you miss your deliverance the ﬁrst time God oﬀered it? Acts 7:25a is a quote about Moses, “Moses assumes his fellow Israelites would realize that God had sent him to rescue them, but they didn’t.” When did this happen? This was not Moses after spending forty years in the wilderness. No, this was young forty year old Moses who was still living in Egypt! He assumed that his people the Israelites, “would realize that God had sent him to rescue them…”
Somehow Moses established a relationship with God to deliver the Israelites while living with Pharaoh. He acted on that move to deliver them, “but they didn’t.” They did not recognize him as a deliverer, or as a peacemaker. Asking him the question, “who made you ruler and judge over us?” Acts 7:35 answers that question, “So God sent back the same man his people had previously rejected when they demanded, who made you ruler and judge over us? The scriptures state that the Israelites rejected young forty year old Moses that God had sent. It was after forty more years of oppression before their deliverance would come. God sent Moses back and he became “ruler and savior” of the Israelites. He lead them out of Egypt freeing them from the rule of Pharaoh. They then murmured in the wilderness some rejected God and many would never see the promised land.
But we are blessed! God sent his son Jesus that we could be delivered from sin and reconciled to him. Jesus’s death and resurrection gives everyone the opportunity to be delivered from sin. Perhaps you’re stuck in your own personal Egypt of bondage. Perhaps You rejected an opportunity for deliverance out of a situation. You may even have turned down forgiveness from your sins through Jesus. No worries, you can change and accept Jesus as Lord and savior; and all the blessings that come with knowing Him. Christians that somehow rejected a clear message from Christ can still be delivered. Hear the Word of the Lord. For God says, “At just the right time, I heard you. On the day of salvation, I helped you.” Indeed, the “right time” is now. Today is the day of salvation.”2 Corinthians 6:2 NLT
Today is the day of salvation. The day to accept Jesus as your savior. The day to believe that he died on the cross, that he came back from the dead and that your sins can be forgiven. Today is the day for the Christian who may have become discouraged to feel the pull of the Holy Spirit and be lifted up in your spirit. Give whatever is bringing you down over to Jesus, and let him ﬁx it. Listen to the call of the Holy Spirit now. Don’t reject your deliverance.
Today is the day of salvation!
