In our incredible Torah portion this week, Beshalach, the Israelites had seen the waters of the Red Sea divided, and they walked across on dry ground! Then as they believed they were safe on the other side, they could see the Egyptians pursuing them with their great armies, horses and chariots; when suddenly the LORD took off their chariot wheels. Telling Moses to lift his hand again, the waters rushed over the Egyptians, overthrowing them into the middle of the sea. Not one Egyptian remained, but all the children of Israel had been redeemed by G-d’s miraculous power. How could they ever express their gratefulness?
The children of Israel sang the song of Moses saying:
Exodus 15:1,2a: “Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spoke, saying I will sing to the LORD, for he has triumphed gloriously; the horse and rider has he thrown into the sea. The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: Yeshua!”
And there is coming a day when we will sing the song of Moses once again. It is found in Revelation, and once again there will have been great victory for the people of G-d by his might and miraculous power! Here is what will happen:
Revelation 15:2: “And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.”
Are you getting the picture of who these people are? They have survived the traps of the tribulation, by the miracles of the LORD, and now just as the children of Israel did, they are singing, and here is what they will sing:
Revelation 15:3: “And they sing the song of Moses, the servant of the God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of the saints.”
In both Exodus and Revelation, this song is sung just prior to a wedding. In Exodus, just prior to the wedding at Mt. Sinai and in Revelation, just prior to the wedding of the Lamb in Revelation 19!
This is the wedding of the KING OF KINGS AND THE LORD OF LORDS and His bride. May we be counted worthy to be called His bride and sing the song of Moses!
