All right, turn with me, if you will, to the book of Exodus. It’s in the Old Testament, right between Genesis and the rest of the Bible, okay? The book of Exodus, second book of the Bible. If you’re following along in your daily Bible reading with the Baptist bread this Saturday, you’ll be reading in Exodus. If you’ve got your own schedule, I don’t know where you’re at, but if you’re following along with that, we’re reading you’ll be reading an Exodus soon. So we’ll take a look at it this evening. And some of these notes have come from Brother McBride. Some have come from a fellow named Jay Sidlow Baxter in Explore The Book, some from Charles Fuller. Have been some notes here from Mr. De Han and some notes from various others. Okay, so good luck with the source notes on all that. All right, but you got a little handout here. The reason you got a handout is I’m going to try to see how it goes, but don’t expect me to follow the handout. Okay, just so you know. But this way we won’t cover everything. But you can take it, and it seems like overkill, but you can take it. And when you go through your own Bible study time, you can look at it and it may help you and may give some food for thought as you go through. In the back is a diagram, a couple of different diagrams of what a tabernacle possibly look like. And it shows you the place, the placing of the furniture of the tabernacle and a few different things there. Just kind of gives you a visual reference because this book is divided into three sections. The first section from chapters 118, covers the Exodus, the exit, the departure of the children of Israel out of Egypt and on their way to the promised land. The middle division, chapter 19 through 24, covers the law that God gave to the children of Israel. And then the last section is about the tabernacle. And sometimes as we go through our Bible reading, we look at the instructions and the details of the tabernacle, and we can get a little bit lost. But it’s interesting to note that while the account of God creating the heaven and the earth covered two chapters, the tabernacle covers a lot more, is very detailed. And why would God see fit to preserve that in his word? If you and I aren’t going to be building a tabernacle, there’s a lot of typology in the tabernacle. We might look a little bit that tonight, but even in the priestly garments that they wore, and it all points to Jesus Christ. Remember, everything from Genesis to Revelation is about the Lord Jesus Christ, and either in type or when Jesus actually came to this earth. So let’s look at existence, break some of it down, and then we’ll leave here with a thought. But before we do, let’s pray and ask god’s blessing upon the reading of His Word tonight. Heavenly Father, we love you we thank you for your precious word that you have given to us and have preserved for us, for the sacrifices of many before us who have labored to translate it who have labored to keep it out of the enemy’s hands, that wanted to destroy it, who have given their life so they could pass it down to the next generation. Lord, help us not to take it for granted. And Lord, even though we don’t understand all the passages in the Bible, lord, help us to read them as they are indeed words from Thee. And Lord prayed you to help us tonight as we look into Your Word. Give us clarity of thought, give us direction. Give us help. In Jesus name, amen. Exodus one starts off with a transition from Genesis. Remember Genesis covered in a long period of time? I think we said about 2400 years. The book of Exodus, once you get past chapter one and chapter two and you actually get into the exit part of Moses dealing with Pharaoh, it covers about a year’s worth of time, a year to two years worth of time. So it slows down. It gives us details about certain accounts for a reason. It talks about how the children of Israel came down into Egypt and increased greatly. God blessed them. You remember what God promised to Abraham that he would bless them, he would make of him a great nation. And it wasn’t until they went down to Egypt that God did that. But God kept his word. Kept his promise. And there was a new king that rose over Egypt and knew not Joseph, didn’t know the God of Joseph. And something to keep in mind, I think we mentioned this before when the Bible speaks of Pharaoh, it’s a title that’s given to the earthly king of that time frame. The pharaoh in Joseph Day was a different pharaoh in Moses day. And there may have been a couple of different Pharaohs from the time he was born until the time he led the children of Israel out of Egypt. So just keep that in mind, that’s a title like Herod is a title, like King is a title. So something interesting is not in the notes, but I want you to look at the king of Egypt’s faith. Verse 15 to the Hebrew midwives, of which the name of the one was shipra, the name of the other Pua. And he said, when you do the office of a midwife to the Hebrew women and see them upon the stools, if it be a son, then you shall kill him, but if it be a daughter, then she shall live. Pharaoh was concerned about the children of Israel, one of the male children put to death. But the midwives feared God. Isn’t that a blessing? They feared God. It did not, as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved them and children alive. And the King of Egypt asked them why they did this, and they give a reason. Look at verse 20. Therefore God dealt well with the Midwives, and the people multiplied and waxed very mighty. And it came to pass, because the Midwives feared God, that he made them houses. Just say right here and now that these Midwives weren’t Hebrew midwives, these were Egyptian midwives. But they got in on the blessings of God because they feared God. You know, the blessings of God are open to all that will come to him and fear him. God takes care of those that put their trust in Him. Amen. Turn with me to exist, 19. And I know it’s here in your notes, but I want you to see it right in the Bible itself, okay? Exes. 19, verse number four. It’s kind of right in the heart of the Book of Exodus. But this sets the theme for this book, I think. It says, you have seen what I did unto the Egyptians. This is God speaking to Moses to tell the children of Israel, you have seen what I did unto the Egyptians and how I bear you on eagle’s wings and brought you unto Myself. Brought out that they could be brought in unto the Lord. That’s the story. We’ll talk about that a little bit, Lord William, but that’s the story of all of us. We’ve been brought out so we could be brought in. And where is God taking us? He’s not taking us to a certain locality destination. He’s bringing us to himself. Whether we’re working in Charleston, Brother Jimmy, or whether we’re working in Beckley or all over the place, Brother Bill, god is bringing us to Himself, no matter the geographical location. So we ought to keep that in mind. To be a peculiar treasure unto Me above all people. For all the earth is mine, and you shall be unto Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak in the children of Israel. So God brought them out to bring them in not into the promised Land, but unto Himself. Okay? It’s not just the promised land. It is so. Let’s look at some of the notes here. We’ve got in front of you some brief lessons concerning God. His power is seen that I mentioned. I don’t know if I mentioned or not. There’s three divisions the Exodus, the Law and the tabernacle. I think I may have mentioned it in the Exodus, the departure of the children of Israel, god’s power is seen. See God dealing with the gods of Egypt. Egypt was no doubt the most powerful kingdom of that time. And they had gods that Egypt worshiped. And there were many and many others, but they were some of the chief gods that they worshiped. And God was showing them that there is only one true God, and he is the God so we see his power, we see his holiness in the law, we see his wisdom in the tabernacle regarding Israel. You could read the notes. There something to digest later. I like the title of this. I think Brother McBride had this title for his message on the book of Exodus. It was freedom, faithfulness and fellowship. Freedom brought out and faithfulness and then brought into fellowship with God. God established a meeting place in the wilderness for his people to be there. And what’s I think, as David has said, the heaven of heavens can’t contain God, but he chose to meet with his people in the wilderness of all places, because they were his people. Listen, there’s no reason why God cannot meet with us here in the hollers of PAX branch to meet with his people. Amen. God can meet with us anywhere. That’s a blessing that encourages me. There’s three main characters in the Exodus. The outgoing, that’s the murderer, Pharaoh, the Mediator, Moses, and the master who’s god. You see his miracles there. I like this. There’s some lessons concerning Israel in Exodus. Here’s what I’m trying to do. Trying to get you to wet your appetite a little bit so you can get into excess as you read chapters one through 18, lessons concerning Israel. There’s the beginning of a new life. God establishes a new calendar for them, and it all goes back to when they came out of the land of Egypt. The new calendar. Just a few days into that calendar, they would celebrate the Passover feast. And he said he wanted them to remember and commemorate that all through their history, there’s a beginning of a new liberty. They’re no longer under bondage to Egypt. Now they’re serving the Lord. A new fellowship and new assurance. Amen. And there’s much by way of types in this portion of scripture between the exit and the Lord Jesus Christ, who is our Passover lamb. He’s our lamb sacrificed from the foundation of the world. Let’s see, I got these pages numbered for reasons that was not for you. That’s for me. I just got mixed up. Okay. Lessons concerning Egypt. It’s the first large scale exposure of the falsity of idolatry. I like how some of these writers put it means the idols that can’t speak and can’t talk. Amen. I want you to hold your place here. And I thought this was interesting. Joshua, chapter nine, verse number nine. Let’s look over there for a minute. Joshua, nine. Nine. The inhabitants of Gibben are coming to talk with Joshua, and they come deceitfully to make league with Joshua. But I want you to notice why they did that. Verse number nine. And they sent to him from a very far country, thy servants are come. That was a lie. Because of the name of the Lord thy God, for we have heard the fame of him and all that he did. Where in Egypt word traveled at what God did in Egypt and how he brought them through the Red Sea. And that was the whole idea of God setting apart a people for himself. And so the world would know that there is a God in Israel and he was the true God. It’s amazing how quickly after the flood this happens. It’s not that far gone when there were only eight people alive on the earth and every one of them knew who the one true God was. And then over time, generations, this family got away from God, this family got away from God. They went after their own imaginations. And you come to the point now where people are worshiping other gods and they don’t know who the one true God is. That’s why it’s important in every generation to contend for the faith that God delivered. Amen. That’s why we want to keep that going here. So anyway, number two, it demonstrates the uselessness, the sin and the folly of attempting to resist God. As seen in Pharaoh, Egypt is a type of the world. There’s plagues smiling in the firstborn. Those are types as well. We see God’s divine power. I want you to notice something interesting here, comparing and contrasting the exit with the Gospel, the exit has brought deliverance to Israel from bondage in Egypt. Likewise, the Gospel brings deliverance for us amen. From guilt, from the bondage of sin, from the penalty of sin. The exodus centered in the Passover in the slain Lamb. So too does the gospel. Amen. The great Passover of Calvary and the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. John the Baptist looked and beheld Jesus and said, behold the Lamb of God, which takes away the sin of the world. The Exodus became forever afterwards commemorated in the past. Christ is our passover. He sacrificed for us. And what does he want us to do until he comes to remember Him? Do this in remembrance of Me. We ought to commemorate Him, remember Him often. So when you go through this and I know, thinking, Brother, what does that have to do with me right here in 2023? Well, first of all, just look at the inspiration of Scripture for all these things to come out in type, how God organizes it, orchestrates it. There could be no reasonable person to doubt that the Bible is inspired word of God. God had to set forth all this. It wasn’t at the hands of Moses. Moses, I’m sure he was a brilliant man, but these aren’t his words. These are God’s words. We see failure in the book of Exodus, and that’s not in our notes. But you you and I know the story, how God brought them out and they said, we’re going to do all that God tells us to do. And then Moses is up in the mount, 40 days and 40 nights. He comes back and he finds what? Finds a golden calf that just popped out of the fire and that’s what Aaron said. And so that talks about human failure, and we see mankind’s failure. Thank the Lord for Moses, his intercession, his prayers on behalf of the children of Israel. Thank the Lord for God’s loving kindness. It’s been said before, I’m glad that Moses and God never got on the same page on the Day of Wrath. They never were angry at the same time, because when the Lord was angry, ready to wipe them off the face of the earth, moses interceded and prayed on their behalf. And God is long suffering and merciful too. So in contrast, the sheltering blood in Exodus was that of an animal. Many animals were slain. And thereafter, when the sacrifices were slain, many more animals were slain. But in Christ, he is our only sacrifice. Amen. One time. And then he he accomplished that, and he sat down forever to be done with that sacrifice. He’s on the Father’s right hand. The Exodus was national and therefore limited to the children of Israel. The gospel is universal. Amen. I like that? And whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Exodus was deliverance from physical bondage. Gospel is delivered from spiritual bondage. Exodus was temporal. The gospel is eternal. Exodus was opened up the way to an earthly canaan, but the Gospel gives us away to heaven. Amen. So it’s just interesting. Okay, so then you get to chapter number 20, and there’s so much interesting events that happen in the book of Exodus. You see the elders of the nation of Israel, they eat their supper, and they are eating their supper with God. And this is before they turn around and worship the golden calf. And it just it boggles the mind how quickly when you’re looking at it from the outside, but then when you consider yourself, I can see how that could happen. I know my flesh. There’s a lot of interesting things happen but then exist. Chapter number 20, you hear? See, here is God’s, the beginning of of the Law, the Ten Commandments. This is not all the commandments there are in the Bible, but this is Ten Commandments. We often refer to them as Ten Commandments and listed here for us. Why was the law given? We know that the Law cannot bring righteousness, right? We can’t be saved by keeping the Law. Nobody could ever keep the Law. Ten Commandments you can’t keep the rich young ruler came to Jesus and said, I kept all of these. You know what he was lacking in at least one commandment? He was coveting. He wasn’t willing to give up of his riches. Jesus said one thing he lacked. None of us can keep the whole Law. It was a standard of righteousness. It was to expose sin for what it was. Galatian says it was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ. Listen, what did Paul say? I had not known sin except by the Law. You and I wouldn’t know that we’re breaking the speed limit if it weren’t for our passengers that say, hey, I saw the law posted on the side of the road and you’re going over that we wouldn’t know, right? But it exposes and identifies sin. It shows us for who we are, so it’ll bring us to Christ. It reveals God’s holiness. Listen. God is a thrice. Holy God. They’re worshiping God in heaven right now because of his holiness. And there’s no way, Brother Frank, he would have anything to do with us if it wasn’t for the blood of Jesus Christ. We’re nothing but sinners saved by his marvelous grace. So don’t ever think that the law was given to bring men to God. It was to show men their need of God. It was to establish a standard of righteousness. They needed something written down as that standard. Romans ten four. Put this verse in your notes so you could have it. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone that believe it. Jesus gives you that righteousness when you put your faith and trust in Him. The last section of exist, chapter 25 through 40, covers the tabernacle. And if you are sleepy at night, I’d encourage you to pay close attention when you read. Okay? There are some details here, but there is a reason remind you there are reasons why God listed out exactly there’s a verse, and I think I wrote it down here. Yeah, a pattern of heavenly things. Turn with me to Hebrews chapter number nine. I want you to see this. I think you know where we’re going here. Hebrews, chapter number nine, verse number 21. Moreover, he sprinkled with blood. And if you read through Exodus and then go read Hebrews, it makes everything makes a lot more sense. Okay? Verse 21. Moreover, he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle and all the vessels of the ministry. And almost all things are by the law purged with blood, and without shedding of blood is no remission. It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these, but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. What do you talk about? We say the only true way to remove sin is by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. But the tabernacle was a pattern of things in the heavens. So what’s that a pattern of? I don’t know that we know all that that’s a pattern of until we get to heaven, but God gives us a pattern of heavy things. We’ll talk about a few of those things, of a way to approach God. You know, the furniture, each part of the furniture of the tabernacle represented something in their approach to God. There was only one entrance into the tabernacle. There’s only one way to get to God, only one door, and that’s through the Lord Jesus Christ. It’s a picture of Christ. I want to get to that real quick. Here we go. Page number three. The Brazen altar was a picture of the cross. It was at the very front. If you look at your diagram, you couldn’t go past, couldn’t go into the tabernacle itself until you passed by the Brazen altar. You and I can’t even begin to approach a holy God without Jesus blood being put to our account by his atoning sacrifice. It’s a picture of Jesus dying on the cross for our sins. That’s where the sacrifices were offered, there in the tabernacle, the Brazen labor. And there’s a lot more detail we could go into there. There’s books that are written on this, and if you want a book on that, I’ve got a couple of recommendations I could tell you about. I don’t want to loan my out, but I’ll tell you about it. You can go get your own. The brazen labor. The labor represents separation from the world after a person gets saved. Now, obviously, the Children Revisitor wouldn’t have understood all this, but we New Testament Christians, we can look back and we can see this. This typology in the tabernacle would represent it’s where they would cleanse themselves. They would wash the dirt off from traveling, from walking in the desert, separation from the world in the flesh, by the washing of the water of the Word, it cleanses us. We will live a separated, holy walk for our Lord. Amen. That the priests would not go into the tabernacle itself without washing first, getting clean. We’ve got to keep that communication line open with our heavenly Father. The table of showbread was in the tabernacle itself. It’s a place of fellowship. We fellowship around the table next door, don’t we? It’s a place of fellowship. But Jesus is the bread of life, isn’t he? He says, I’m the bread of life. He sustains us through life. The candlestick has seven branches. It’s a type of testimony. Jesus is the light of the world, but he also sends us forth to the lights of the world to shine in a dark place. Then you come to the golden altar of incense. It’s a symbol of prayer intercession. When we pray, we take our cares and our burdens to the Lord. We’re praying one for another. We come to our Heavenly Father through Jesus Christ. We’re passing by that golden altar of incense. Incense represents the prayers of God’s people. Then you come into the most Holy Place. Only one of the priests would go in there one time a year. This is the high priest, and it’s called the holiest of Holies, or the Most Holy Place. You come to the Ark of the Covenant represent the in. That covenant later were a couple of things. There was one, it was a raw Aaron’s rod that budded. You learn about that not in excess, but a little later on a copy of the tables of stone engraved with the finger of God, his commands. It represented access to God, his covenant relationship between God the Father and God the Son. Here’s the point. You and I have access to the throne of grace because God the Father and God the Son have a binding covenant between each other, not a blessing you have the mercy seat represents the very presence and life of God. It was overlaid with one cheerable on one side and another chairman on the other side, and the wings covered their faces and it covered the mercy seat. And that’s where God showed up in the wilderness in a great way. The glory would fill the tabernacle and they would have to leave the tabernacle because it was so thick at times. It represents the very presence of God. You and I have access into the very presence of God, something children of Israel never had. But you and I have through Jesus, Hebrews 619, which hope we have as an anchor of the soul both sure and steadfast, and which entereth into that within the veil. That’s what that’s talking about. Into the holiest of all you and I, the moment we bow our heads and kneel down and pray and say our heavenly Father, and we come to him through the name of Jesus, we go through that veil that only one person could ever go through in the Old Testament. You and I have access to our heavenly Father any time we go to him day or night. So he says Hebrews four seeing then that we have great, a great high priest that has passed into the heavens, jesus, the Son of God. He said, let there be no doubt who I’m referring to. Let us hold fast our profession, for we have not in high priests which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. How many of you had had to access the throne room this week? Aren’t you glad that you had access and you could pray and kneel before an almighty God? We’re not going to look at these in detail tonight. We don’t have time and I don’t have the knowledge to do so. But there’s seven priestly garments. You have the breastplate, the ephod, the robe, the coat, the linen breeches, the mitre, and the holy crown. And each one of them represent something else. I thought this was interesting as I put this in her notes. The high priest on the breastplate bears the people of God upon his heart. There were things that were set in the breastplate and every time he’d go into the holy of holies, he would be bringing the people of God upon his heart. You know, God does the same thing. Jesus Christ, our great high priest, is interceding on our behalf at the Father’s right hand do you ever stop and think about that? He is bearing his heart out into his his to God the Father about you and me and you have the EPA he bears upon his shoulders. The people of God. God does the same thing with us. Burdens get heavy for me to carry. Do they? You I get weighed down by the burdens of life. He never does. Amen. I can lay it on his shoulders and he’ll take care of it. On the back, just real quick, there is a detailed outline. This is from we’re not going to look at that. You can take it home and look at it a little bit more detailed. A couple of other interesting notes and that’s from Mr. Baxter’s book. Okay. Want you to turn if you’ve left it, turn back there to exist. Chapter number 19. Let’s look at that verse again and we’ll leave you with this thought tonight brought out that we might be brought in verse four. You have seen what I did unto the Egyptians and how I bear you on eagle’s wings and brought you unto myself. Now therefore, if you will obey my voice indeed and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto Me above all people, for all the earth is mine. Ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests and in holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak. And to the children of Israel. Did God not know what the children of Israel were like? He did, right? He’s not talking to a perfect people, but he’s talking to a peculiar people. He’s not talking to the perfect members of PAX French Baptist Church. There’s not one in the one of us in here that are perfect, right? Maybe besides my wife, because she’s downstairs. But none of us else are perfect, right? But we’re peculiar in God’s sight. We’re special, we’re privileged people. He says over in the New Testament. I believe it’s first. Peter It says we’re a peculiar people. It might not be First Peter, so don’t quote me on that. But we are peculiar people. Deuteronomy, chapter number six. Go over there with me real quick. Deuteronomy, chapter number six, verse number 22. I think that verse was in your notes too. And the Lord showed signs and wonders great and sore upon Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his household before our eyes. And he brought us out from tense that he might bring us in to give us the land which he swear under our fathers. If you look at Deuteronomy seven, verse six, just one page over probably. For thou art and holy people unto the Lord thy God. The Lord that God thine God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto Himself above all people that are pouring the face of the earth. You get the picture? You get the idea. It’s more than just going into the promised land. He’s trying to bring. Them unto himself. Listen, it’s more than us just going to heaven, as wonderful as that is. And I’m excited that when dad goes through Sunday school lessons and tells us more about heaven and what to expect, I get more and more excited. My vision looks a little more heavenward after Sunday school. But it’s more than just going to heaven. God wants a relationship, a fellowship with us. Relationship is there through Jesus. He wants that fellowship, that communion. Walking with them in the garden, just like the children of Israel. I’m reminded of my hopeless case before I was delivered. I was in bondage to sin. I was a servant of sin. The Bible says I could not get myself out. That was inescapable. I couldn’t do anything about it. And and my end was hopeless without Christ. The Bible says that all men are are without hope, without Christ. But God saw my need, just as he saw the children of Israel’s need. In chapter three of XS, verse seven and eight, you don’t have to turn there. God says, I have seen the affliction, I have heard their cry, I know their sorrows, and I’ve come down to deliver them. God, that’s the story of me and that’s the story of you. God knew where we were, and God saw our need. He knew what we needed, that he came down where we were, to deliver us out of that bondage of sin and then to bring us unto Himself. This life is a journey. The children of Israel went a journey. And there were times of failure, there were times of victory. We’re on a journey through this life. We’re not going to the Promised Land, canaan land. We’re going to heaven. It’s a little bit different there. We’re going to heaven. There are no wars and battles in Heaven. But we’re on a journey. Just as God provided for the children of Israel their physical needs, he’s going to provide for you and me our physical needs, our spiritual needs. He hasn’t left us here without a God either. It’s interesting in Exodus too, you’re going to see that God said, I’m going to send my angel with a capital A. Your Bible should have a capital A, mine angel. It’s not talking about any particular angel, not talking about an angel at all. It’s talking about the Lord Jesus Christ before he was manifested in the flesh. And it’s interesting, jesus led the children of Israel through their journeys. He’s going to go with you through your journey. Got to follow him and trust him. One Corinthians 6910 eleven talks about what we were before we were saved and says, and such were some of you. Dear washed, you are sanctified, you are justified. Name the Lord Jesus. And by the Spirit of our God, let me leave this. This thought being with Christ said, this is more than a geographical place. It’s being with Him, wherever that is. But it’s a special place. It’s a place of safety, a place of comfort, a place of peace. This world is looking for peace. They’d find it if they would come to Jesus. It’s a place of fellowship, place where our needs are met. But God expects something. It’s not all just give. God wants us to live a holy and clean life, right? He wants us to be lights in this world. We can’t be alight with a dirty vessel. We can’t fellowship with God with a dirty vessel. We got to walk clean, walk pure, walk holy. He promised to supply all my needs. I’m thankful for the goodness of God, aren’t you? And I know this has been a quick overview and that’s the lesson tonight. But I hope as you read through exist, you’ll find other things. You’ll jot down and say, hey, Brother Eric, look what I found out of the book of existence and how this speaks to my need. This shows me how good God is. This is a picture of the Lord right here. And show me those things. I’ll rejoice with you. But let’s go through as we go through the Bible together this year. Let’s let it build our faith in the Lord, in his word. Help us to grow as Christians and then ultimately help us keep our eyes heavenward. Amen. And be fruitful and productive for Him. Because he didn’t leave us here just to take up space. He left us here to do something. And we want to be alight at this dark world. What’s the dark world? Isn’t it? I hate even checking the news anymore. I do. I think it’s a bad habit now, but I get all tore up every now and then. I have to take some. It’s that chalky stuff and may locks or whatever it is at Tums and just to calm things back down. But this world is not my home. I’m just passing through like the children of visual in the wilderness. I’m just passing through. I’ve got a much greater home on the other side. Gods want to go with us. Like he went through the wilderness with a tuner visual. Let’s not be like they were. They didn’t learn their lesson. Let’s learn our lessons early and follow the Lord. Amen. All right, let’s bow our heads and pray.
