Exodus: Lord Our Banner


The Lord is our Banner
The banner is a symbol of victory. In a war, when one side captures the others’ flag/banner, they can claim victory.
When Moses stood on that hill and raised his staff, the staff was like the flag/banner for the Israelites. As long as it was raised high, the Israelites fought more boldly and confidently. But when it started dropping, their spirits fell too.
So Aaron and Hur held up Moses’ arms, one on each side.
(That’s the importance of good friends. When we see someone is tired or discouraged — whether your teacher, parents, siblings or friends — we can come and support and encourage them. We can say, “Come, let me help you. You don’t have to do it alone.”)
This banner in the hand of Moses was a visible image of God’s presence and power. He was the one who would provide the victory over the Amalalekites. By themselves, the Israelites were sure to be defeated and destroyed. But with God, they could be victorious!
Jehovah Nissi: The Lord is our Banner! 
Jesus has won the victory for us
What shape do you see when Moses stands up there with his hands stretched out, holding his staff?
Yes, it’s the Cross.
Today, the Cross is our banner, our flag, our victory.
When we see the Cross, we remember Jesus’ death and finished work on the Cross.
Jesus won the victory over sin and death for us! And unlike Moses’ tired arms, Jesus does not get tired or weary. His work on the Cross stands forever — His victory is forever.
Even Jesus tells us that we will face problems in life. But He also tells us we can have peace and be assured because Jesus has won the victory already! “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
So no matter what problems and challenges we face, whether it’s not enough food or an enemy’s army, we can look at the Cross and know He has given us the victory!
Jehovah Nissi: The Lord is our Banner!

Exodus: Water from the Rock


We’ve been learning that we can see Jesus in the whole Bible. He’s not just a New Testament person. Jesus was God, and part of His salvation plan for the whole world.
And in the Old Testament, through God’s interactions with the Israelites, He would leave them clues to show them what He was going to do.
So far, we’ve seen Jesus in the:
1. Burning Bush (Jesus is the I AM)
2. 10 Plagues (Jesus as the Firstborn who died for our freedom)
3. Passover (Jesus as the Perfect Passover Lamb who took away our sin)
4. Passover (Jesus as the Unleavened Bread (striped, pierced, burnt for us))
5. Parting of the Red Sea (Jesus is our Deliverer)
6. Manna (Jesus our Bread from Heaven)
7. Water from the Rock (Jesus is the Rock!)

Jesus is the Rock
1 Corinthians 10:4 “for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them,and that rock was Christ.”
When Moses struck the rock with his staff = Picture of Jesus struck & crucified
The Holy Spirit is the Water
Jesus died and rose again. And He went back to heaven, so that God the Holy Spirit could come and live in all of us forever. The Holy Spirit is the stream of living water that flows in all who believes in Jesus.  Jesus makes us righteous so the Holy Spirit (the living water) can live in us forever!
John 7:37 … Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.”

Exodus: Bread from Heaven


Why Manna?
This was a special food that mysteriously appeared every morning on its own, 6 days a week.
They didn’t have to do anything to get the manna — they didn’t have to plant or toil or harvest … it just appeared and they could enjoy it freely. Taught them to depend and trust in God to provide for them.
It was enough to sustain the Israelites for 40 years in the desert … special energy pack?
It was a good daily reminder to the Israelites that the Lord was with them always — since they saw the 10 plagues and the parting of the Red Sea and still questioned whether God led them out to die in the desert.

Jesus our Manna
Thousands of years later, when Jesus was feeding the 5,000, he brought up the time the Israelites’ ancestors ate manna (bread from heaven) in the wilderness.
Then Jesus said many times, “I am the Bread of life from Heaven.” (John 6:31)
Later Jesus explained, “This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world … I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you”. (John 6:51-53)
How is Jesus our Manna?
  • Our relationship with Him is based on His grace — like the Manna, we don’t have to plant or toil or harvest to earn it — we just receive freely, as much as we need
  • Jesus is enough — He is all we need — just like how the Manna sustained the Israelites for 40 years! We just need to depend and trust on Him.

Memory Verse
John 6:35
“And Jesus said to them, ‘I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.’”

Exodus: Unleavened Bread


Jesus is our Unleavened bread
How does the unleavened bread (Matzah bread) remind us of Jesus?
1)      Striped:
Can you see the stripes on this bread?
Do you know Jesus was whipped until His whole back was striped like this?
And the Bible tells us that it was because of His stripes that we have His healing.
Isaiah 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: and  by his stripes we are healed.

2)      Pierced:
Can you see the little holes along the bread? The dough is pierced with a small wheel with sharp teeth (called a “redler” )before baking to allow air bubbles to escape — this prevents the dough from rising while in the oven.
When Jesus was put on the cross, his hands and feet were pierced by nails. When He was hanging there, to check if he was really dead, the Roman soldier pierced Jesus’ side with a sharp spear, and water and blood flowed out (John 19:34) which probably meant His heart had broken (no more alive).
John 19:37 And again another scripture says, They shall look on him whom they pierced.  

3)      Burnt:
The bread was burnt/baked in the oven.
Fire is a picture of judgment. Jesus was burnt/judged for our sake.

4)      No leaven
Leaven is a picture of sin. Unleavened means “no leaven”, so “no sin”.
Jesus did not have any sin in Him! He was the only perfect man who ever lived.
1 John 3:5 And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin.

Because of Jesus, we can also become unleavened bread. Jesus took all our sin on Himself on that cross. In exchange, we have His life and righteousness in us! Righteousness = no sin
2 Cor 5:21 God made Him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God.
