Moses Returns to Egypt
<iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="270" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/19kOPEqhJlU" width="480"></iframe><div><br />The time has come for <a href="https://ucgraleigh.blogspot.com/2024/03/moses-returns-to-egypt.html">Moses to return to Egypt</a>. God intended for Moses to have face to face interaction with Pharaoh. What’s really going on is that through Moses God would have His demand delivered directly to the man at the top. But God warned Moses that Pharaoh would refuse to listen. Jesus gave us the same warning, “if they reject me, they will reject you", "you will be persecuted for teaching what I tell you".</div><div><br /></div><div><span style="background-color: white; color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.52); font-family: Roboto, RobotoDraft, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px;">https://ucgraleigh.blogspot.com/2024/03/moses-returns-to-egypt.html</span></div>

It directly addresses two of the four main themes of the day. Get a FREE copy of our eBook "What Really Happens After Death?" Full details are at this link: http://eepurl.com/ddB0yb The Day of Atonement Has Meaning For Our Time Hebrew 9:8-10 - one of the features of the day of atonement is: our present separation from God... lost at Eden... cast out from His presence… the way back guarded by angels with flaming swords... as pictured on the veil used in the temple. The day of Atonement was a symbolic picture of the coming restoration of our direct relationship with God... but it was only a symbol. The reality of re-establishing that direct relationship would only come to pass through Jesus Christ. The offerings of Leviticus 16 are no longer a part of our observance of the day of Atonement. Under the new covenant they have been replaced by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ… who is also now acts as the high priest. The symbols and outward observance didn't have the power to transform people from within... they could not cleanse our conscience. But Christ can.
