Call it a fulfilled prophecy. Four hundred years after God told Abraham that his descendants will leave their land of captivity, Moses appeared on the scene.
His message was clear. The time of deliverance for Abraham’ seed had come.
He had two signs to go with his prophetic message. He was not the only miracle worker though.
Jannes and Jambres could create snakes too. Pharaoh was enthralled by their wonders. Why would they then believe the message of the Exodus?
Though they could make miracles happen, they failed to see that only Moses had the prophecy of God for that age.
As anointed but blind guides, they led their convert – Pharaoh to a watery grave beneath the Red Sea.
Go and enlighten that feigning fox
Christ said-knowing Herod’s hoax
The Messiah would never be killed
Without accomplishing all He willed
For His ministry was in three phases
Healing, miracles and prophetic stages
He must reach the third-His Passion
Would only come by Jerusalem’s calculation
Not secular Herod’s cunning ambition
The holy people of the holiest place
Were the type for present antitype
Christ crucified by the religious race
Tells us today that His elected mystical Body
Would not feel Antichrist’s fangs from Rulers
But those who think their creeds more worthy
One day a man was threshing wheat by a winepress
And the Angel of the Lord appeared to him
The man was Gideon, and he was working in oblivion
He could not raise his head for the oppressor’s dread
Israel had sinned against the God they once adored
So He had removed His protective shield from their borders
And sent the Midianites to ravage their coffers
For seven years Israel toiled to sow, while Midian toyed
With their harvests, carting away their labour’s fruits
Then they cried for deliverance from penury
They remembered they had a mighty God
Who had helped their sword to win many battles
God found a man to use, it seemed like a ruse
For he was hiding for fear of Midianites arriving
Lest he lose his entire harvest to the eastern pests
