They departed from Rameses in the first month, on the fifteenth day of the first month; on the day after the Passover the children of Israel went out with boldness in the sight of all the Egyptians. (Numbers 33:3)

As Moses begins to recount the chronology of their journey, it is very important for us to see that he emphasized the nature of their departure. In other words, when God delivered Israel from their Egyptian oppressors, they did not flee in a panic as a chaotic mob — they marched out while the defeated Egyptians looked on. They did not leave under the cover of darkness, in fact, there was nothing secret about it — it was done publicly. God’s deliverance of His people was accomplished with the oppressors having full knowledge of it. To put it bluntly, He was making a point to His people and to His enemies — “I am the Almighty God and my Will will prevail over all others.”

Not only did Israel leave boldly with heads raised high, but they did so even as the Egyptians were bent low in humiliation, in deed, busy burying all of their dead. The Bible says, in fact, that there was not one house in Egypt that did not contain a corpse (Exodus 12:30). Furthermore, God executed judgment upon their gods demonstrating that faith in idols of wood and stone is futile and foolish. With each plague poured out upon Egypt, He proved that everything Egypt had placed their trust in was worthless and powerless to the point that these idols were contemptible in the eyes of Egypt.

Such is the end for those who resist the will of the Almighty; the tares will be broken because of their pride. On the other hand, those who call upon Him in humility have the promise of salvation and deliverance. In Egypt, they were delivered because they trusted in the blood of a lamb upon the doorposts of their home. We have been delivered, are being delivered and will be delivered because of the blood of The Lamb. Furthermore, when Yeshua was raised from the dead, He “disarmed principalities and powers and made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it” (Colossians 2:15). That means that we can march out of oppression and bondage with holy boldness, knowing that our enemy has been defeated for all time.
