The Enemy of My Enemies…

Read: Exodus 22-24
Marked: Exodus 23:22, “But if you indeed obey His voice and do all that I speak, then I will be an enemy to your enemies and an adversary to your adversaries.”

At verse 20 God sends an Angel to keep them on the way to the place that has been prepared. This is no ordinary Angel, this Angel has the name of God in Him (V29).

God says when they obey the Angel’s voice, and do all that God speaks, God will be an enemy against their enemies. This Angel is the Lord Jesus who stands in judgment over us.

When we obey Jesus, the Lord becomes the enemy of our enemies. Man’s greatest enemies are sin and death. Jesus destroyed both on the cross. Jesus goes before us leading us to the place He has prepared for those who love Him.
