No Slaves Here!
“But the more they were oppressed, the more they multiplied and the more they spread abroad. And the Egyptians were in dread of the people of Israel.
and made their lives bitter with hard service, in mortar and brick, and in all kinds of work in the field. In all their work they ruthlessly made them work as slaves.” Exodus 1:12, 14 ESV
This is the best the enemy has got. This is his age old strategy. Enslave them. Unlike the Hebrews, we are not without a king that loves us. However, like them we live in a land that is not our own. Our citizenship, according to the Word, is a heavenly one and not an earthly one. We live here but we look forward to living somewhere much better than here.
