Out of Egypt (1 of 3)
Matthew 2:15 NASB
He remained there until the death of Herod.
This was to fulfill what had been spoken
by the Lord through the prophet:
“Out of Egypt I called My Son.”
Out of Egypt I called My Son.
The Lord has delivered His people Israel out of Egypt, where they groaned under the yoke of slavery. The Son of God was also called out of Egypt.
The Lord used Egypt to keep His Son alive.
In Egypt, the Christ is out of the reach of the hostile Herod.
After Herod’s death, Joseph, Mary and the Child returned to Canaan.
Later, the Christ entered the Egypt of the dead.
But on the third day the Father raised Him up: ‘Out of Egypt have I called My Son.”
Hellish Pharaoh could not keep Him in death.
The text has still another meaning.
Every person does not naturally dwell in paradise, but in the Egypt of sin.
The Lord, at His good pleasure, revives those who cry to Him and groan from the Egypt of sin.
He who hears your prayer will not let you perish in that Egypt.
The Son of God has been in Egypt for His people, therefore they shall surely be delivered out of it.
Redemption is only partial in this life.
But one day a complete redemption will follow.
And finally, for all His own, there is a complete and everlasting bliss.
