Good Morning.

Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel has come to Me, and I have also seen the oppression with which the Egyptians oppress them. Come now, therefore, and I will send you to Pharaoh that you may bring My people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt.” (Exodus 3:9-10)

The word “Now” is translated from the Hebrew term ‘et and indicates a “designated  time.” In other words, the set time had come for certain events to begin to unfold that would culminate in the deliverance of Israel from their Egyptian taskmasters. Later, the Bible records that the children of Israel left Egypt on the very day that had been prophesied to Abraham 430 years before (Exodus 12:41). We are to understand then that God causes His Word to come to pass at the “set time” — on the very day and to the very moment — that He has ordained.

When Messiah was preparing to ascend into heaven, His disciples asked Him, “Lord, will you at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?” He answered them saying, “It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power” (Acts 1:6-7), meaning that the Father had established a “set time” when the restoration of the Kingdom would occur. Though He wasn’t directly addressing the timing of it, He assured them that there was an appointed time of redemption. To underscore that point, consider what Psalm 102 has to say:  

“You shall arise and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favor her, yes, the set time, is come.” (Psalm 102:13) 

In this verse, the word “time” is the Hebrew word ‘et and is there to emphasize that God has, indeed, set a specific time when He will begin to favor Zion. At that time, the nations of the world will be shaken and things will be set in motion. On the very day and at the exact moment that He has ordained, His Word concerning Jerusalem and Israel shall come to pass. God told Abraham there was an appointed time for Israel to be redeemed from Egyptian slavery and it happened according to His Word (Genesis 15:13-14). Likewise, He has promised us that our day of redemption will most certainly come at the appointed time. Until then, let us continue to “look up” for that day is drawing near.

Blessings and Shalom,
