    The Whole Counsel of God – Exodus 1 The Enemy Strikes
     
    Exodus 1:1-22
     
    The Church Militant
    The Church Triumphant
     
    - The more God’s people are oppressed, the more that oppression strengthens them, and also works against their oppressors
    - This is true for the Church and individuals
    - Just as gold is purified by fire, so are we purified by trials
    - All things do work for OUR GOOD and HIS GLORY
    - For this reason we are to endure patiently
     
     
    Satan’s two tactics:
    - Overtly oppose God’s people
    - Covertly deceive God’s people
    - When Israel is overtly opposed by the enemy, they triumph and are blessed
    - When Israel is covertly deceived by the enemy, they are judged harshly by God
     
     
    We believe the Bible teaches us to submit to human governments...
    ...Until obeying them would mean disobeying God
    However...We should be wise (shrewd) as serpents and innocent as doves.
     
    1. Know your tendencies and lean against them.
    2. Know to which way you want to err and lean that way.
    3. Don’t expect anyone else to lead you.
    4. Don’t assume man’s motives and the devil’s motives are the same.
    5. Trust God’s word, not your feelings.

    • God gives revelation so we will act upon it
    • God gives revelation so we can prepare for upcoming transitions

    Two Major Themes in this Chapter
    • The Blessings of God
    • Trials & Temptations
     
    Is God’s Blessing on Joseph for Us?
    • Joseph was a type of Christ - so God blesses Joseph like He blesses Christ - but God has also blessed us “in Christ” - we receive “trickle-down” blessing from Christ
    • It is to be received by faith
    • It is seen primarily through our salvation
    • It is all for the praise of His glory

    A Journey Through the Old Testament - Jacob's Sanctification
     
    Sanctification is:
    • The process of God recreating us into the image of Christ
    • Unavoidable for the true believer in Christ
    • The product of having a past, present, and future view of the grace of God in your life
    • Produced in the inner man 
      • but tested and grown by our response to the outer world

    Irreversible Truths of the Law of Sowing and Reaping
    1. Whatever a man sows, he will reap
    2. The kind that we sow is the kind that we will reap
    3. The law of S&R is both negative and positive
    4. We reap MORE than we sow
    5. Sowing is reactive – it is responding to a desire
    6. When we sow to the flesh, we are deceived
    7. We reap in proportion to how much we sow
    8. Sowing and Reaping are in different seasons - reaping comes in God’s appointed season
    9. The cross is proof that the law of S&R is fixed
    10. The Gospel does not remove the law of S&R - it switches the roles of the sower and reaper - we reap what Christ has sown - He reaped what we have sown
    11. God uses the law of S&R to discipline His children
    12. We reap a harvest of “fruit” - fruit has seed which will start S&R over again
