Scripture: Exodus 12:29-36
Exodus 12:29-36 says, “And it came to pass at midnight that the Lord struck all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sat on his throne to the firstborn of the captive who was in the dungeon, and all the firstborn of livestock. So Pharaoh rose in the night, he, all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt, for there was not a house where there was not one dead. Then he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, ‘Rise, go out from among my people, both you and the children of Israel. And go, serve the Lord as you have said. Also take your flocks and your herds, as you have said, and be gone; and bless me also.’ And the Egyptians urged the people, that they might send them out of the land in haste. For they said, ‘We shall all be dead.’ So the people took their dough before it was leavened, having their kneading bowls bound up in their clothes on their shoulders. Now the children of Israel had done according to the word of Moses, and they had asked from the Egyptians articles of silver, articles of gold, and clothing. And the Lord had given the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians, so that they granted them what they requested. Thus they plundered the Egyptians.” God executed judgment on all the gods of Egypt, but He also gave wisdom to Moses. He told the Israelites through Moses to ask the Egyptians for articles of silver, gold and clothing. The Lord gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians so they did as the Israelites asked. We refer to this as ‘spoiling Egypt’. The Israelites were former slaves who had been in captivity in Egypt for 400 years and they had never been paid for all the work they had done so God turned the Exodus event into a payday. Within a few hours they were rewarded for all of their labors in Egypt. And that spoil built their first house of worship, the Tabernacle of Moses. And it was built out of the spoil of Egypt. David’s Tabernacle and the Temple of Solomon were all built out of the spoil from the anointing that was on King David and his mighty men and then brought into the treasury. They knew where the power was, and they knew Who it was Who was granting them the victory. This same anointing is promised for the Last Days. Is there any doubt that those of us who walk in the Last Days are about to see the Hand of God in action!
