INTRODUCTION

“And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the same day 

it came to pass, that all the hosts of the Lord went out from the land of Egypt.” 

Exodus 12:41. 

IT is our firm conviction and increasing belief that the historical books of Scripture were intended to teach us by types and figures, spiritual things. We believe that every portion of Scripture history is not only a faithful transcript of what did actually happen, but also a shadow of what happens spiritually in the dealings of God with His people, or in the dispensations of His grace towards the world at large. We do not look upon the historical books of Scripture as being mere rolls of history, such as profane authors might have written; we regard them as being most true and infallible records of the past, and also most bright and glorious foreshadowing of the future, as well as most wondrous metaphors, and marvelous illustrations of things which are verily received among us and most truly felt in the Christian heart. We may be wrong, but we believe we are not. At any rate, the very error has given us instruction, and our mistakes have afforded us comfort. We look upon the Book of Exodus as being a book of types of the deliverances which God will give to His elect people—not only as a history of what He has done in bringing them out of Egypt by smiting the first-born, leading them through the Red Sea, and guiding them through the wilderness, but also as a picture of His faithful dealings with all His people, whom by the blood of Christ He separates them from the Egyptians, and by His strong and mighty hand takes them out of the house of their bondage, and out of the land of their slavery!

Last Sabbath evening we had the type of the Passover—the Paschal Lamb. 

And we showed you, then, how the sprinkled blood, and the eaten lamb were types of the blood applied for our justification and of the flesh received by inward communion with Jesus, the soul living and feeding upon Him. We now take the Exodus, or the going out of Egypt of the children of Israel, as being a type and picture of the going out of all the vessels of mercy from the house of their bondage—and as the deliverance of all the lawful captives from the chains of their cruel taskmasters—by sovereign and omnipotent grace, through the Passover of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The land of Egypt is a picture of the house of bondage into which all God’s covenant people will sooner or later be brought, on account of their sin. All those whom God means to give an inheritance in Canaan; He will first take down into Egypt. Even Jesus Christ, Himself, went into Egypt before He ap-peared publicly as a teacher before the world, that in His instance, as well as in that of every Christian, the prophecy might be fulfilled—“Out of Egypt have I called My Son.” Everyone who enjoys the liberty wherewith Christ does make us free must first feel the galling bondage of sin! Our wrists must be made to smart by the fetters of our iniquity, and our backs must be made to bleed by the lash of the law—the taskmaster which drives us to Jesus Christ! There is no true liberty which is not preceded by true bondage; there is no true deliverance from sin unless we have first of all groaned and cried unto God, as did the people of Israel when in bondage in Egypt. We must all serve in the brick kiln; we must all be wearied with toiling among the pots, or otherwise we could never realize that glorious verse—“Though you have lain among the pots, yet shall you be as the wings of a dove covered with silver, and her feathers with yellow gold.” We must have bondage before liberty! Before resurrection there must come death!

Before life there must come corruption! Before we are brought out of the horrible pit, and the miry clay, we must be made to exclaim, “I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing.” And before like Jonah we can be fetched out of the whale’s belly, and delivered from our sin, we must have been taken down to the bottoms of the mountains, with the weeds wrapped about our heads, shuddering under a deep sense of our own nothingness, and fearing that the earth with her bars might be about us forever! Taking this as a key, you will see that the deliverance out of Egypt is a beautiful picture of the deliverance of all God’s people from the bondage of the law, and the slavery of their sins.
