In Exodus 5:1 it says:
“Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the Lord, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the Lord, for He has triumphed gloriously: the horse and the rider hath He thrown into the sea.”
In this victorious song of Moses which gives God the glory for delivering the children out of the hands of Pharaoh and his Riders. This prophetically speaking depicts Satan and his cohorts. During the crossing through the Red Sea we are reminded that the Horse and the Rider allegorically speaking is any weapon, obstacle, construction, wall, or entity that would come against the child of God.
The Rider can further be described as any vehicle, whether it is a person being used by the devil, a legislated law bent on bringing compromise, or worldly and lustful temptation that the enemy has dispatched against you. By faith, we understand that the Rider cannot stand and will fail.
Every believer is assured that those who are in “Christ” will He destroy or do away with one’s sins as pointed out here in Micah 7:19.
“He will turn again, He will have compassion upon us; He will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.”
Notice that in Exo 15:1 it says: “The horse and the rider has He thrown into the sea.” The word ‘Sea’ as defined in the Hebrew reference – H3220 states “From an unused root meaning to roar; a sea (as breaking in noisy surf) or large body of water; specifically (with the article) the Mediterranean; sometimes a large river, or an artificial basin; locally, the west, or (rarely) the south: – sea (X -faring man, [-shore]), south, west (-ern, side, -ward).”
As a prophetic people, we can create a drowning situation for the enemy to drown in or ‘self-destruct’ by opening our mouths and releasing “The Roar of The Lion of the tribe of Judah”. It is a sound that comes from deep within us. Hosea 11:10 says,
“They shall walk after the LORD: He shall roar like a lion: when He shall roar, then the children shall tremble from the west.”
We are made in the image and likeness of the Lord, therefore since He roars, so shall we roar!
In 2 Corinthians 10:4 it says,
“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;.”
We are reminded to use our weapons of warfare to defeat the enemy.
Ephesians 6:11 -18 tells us to be strong in the Lord and in the power of his might. It is important that we remember that our battle is not with flesh and blood but with the powers of darkness. As we exercise and walk in the whole armor of God, we are assured the victory every time.
As we have the victory every time, we must remember the example of Moses, in Exodus 15:1, and Miriam in Exodus 15:21. Moses remembered to give God the victory by singing after the battle was won. In Luke 17:11-19 , there is the story where Jesus healed 10 lepers but only one returned to say “Thank You”.
As God gives you the victory in the tests and trials of like, remember to stop and say ‘Thank You’ to the Lord in song (Praise). As you give Glory to the Lord through your roar, your praise and your appreciation, they will all work to destroy the works of darkness.
May God’s Grace Abundantly Reign In Your Life!
