But against none of the children of Israel shall a dog move its tongue, against man or beast, that you may know that the Lord does make a difference between the Egyptians and Israel. And all these your servants shall come down to me and bow down to me, saying, “Get out, and all the people who follow you!” (Exodus 11:7-8)
Again, take note of the distinction that God placed between Israel and Egypt. As we have pointed out before, this is so the Egyptians AND Israel would see and know that He, alone, is the LORD. This distinction is an important element of the redemptive process and we, who are in the end of days, should pay attention. He did not place them in a remote location or remove them from the land and then make this distinction but did so while they were still in the land of affliction.
As a result of all that had transpired, in the end, the Egyptians were prompted to come and bow down before those who were once considered slaves. If He did this for Israel in the beginning, then we should conclude that this is a part of the pattern of Redemption — God causes the wicked to come and bow before his servants, the righteous. Messiah told the congregation of Philadelphia:
“Behold, I will make those of the synagogue of Satan who say that they are Jews and are not, but lie — behold, I will make them come and bow down before your feet and they will learn that I have loved you.” (Revelation 3:9)
Thus we understand that our enemies will bow before us, not in acknowledgement of our greatness, but in acknowledgement of the great love our God has for us. It should not be something that causes us to look upon our enemy with contempt and revengeful eyes but to look to our Father with love and devotion. Nevertheless, the promise is there; one day the wicked, who have lorded over us, will be under our feet. As it written:
But to you who fear My name, the Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing in His wings; and you shall go out and grow fat like stall-fed calves. You shall trample the wicked, for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day that I do this, says the Lord of hosts. (Malachi 4:2-3)
Blessings and Shalom,
