Before us lies one of the most intriguing stories ever recorded for mankind – the deliverance of Israel from Egypt, and their journey to the land of Canaan. As we commence this sacred history of Israel, the question naturally arises, why so much attention in the divine writings of this historical event? The answer is simple; it all originated as a result of a covenant that God made with a man called Abraham. God made this promise to Abraham when He called him to leave his family and home in Ur of the Chaldees. It was exactly 430 years later, even in the selfsame day, that the nation of Israel marched out of Egypt to commence their journey to the land of Canaan (Ex. 12:41).
Reading the account recorded in the scriptures we will be reminded that God has a plan for His people, and a timetable to fulfill His purposes for the blessing of His people who choose to obey His commands and instructions, by listening to His Word. This story of history is given to encourage all His people to trust a Holy God, who is our Heavenly Father. This book will outline the promises and instructions of the Lord to His people, their times of testing, and their challenge during their years of wandering through the wilderness. It reminds us that we too must rely on the promises of God, as we wander through the wilderness of this present world, waiting for our deliverance that was promised.
