Two Biblical Exoduses ✡ “We Departed From the River” – ISRAEL365

Then we departed from the river of Ahava on the twelfth day of the first month, to go unto Yerushalayim; and the hand of our God was upon us, and He delivered us from the hand of the enemy and lier-in-wait by the way.

וַנִּסְּעָה מִנְּהַר אַהֲוָא בִּשְׁנֵים עָשָׂר לַחֹדֶשׁ הָרִאשׁוֹן לָלֶכֶת יְרוּשָׁלִָם וְיַד אֱלֹהֵינוּ הָיְתָה עָלֵינוּ וַיַּצִּילֵנוּ מִכַּף אוֹיֵב וְאוֹרֵב עַל הַדָּרֶךְ

Jerusalem Inspiration

For the people of Israel, the past and the present fuse together to create the most extraordinary future. As told in today’s verse, it is clear that a carefully choreographed event is planned and designed to reflect a former exodus, the exodus from Egypt.  Just as the Jews left Egypt in the first month, the month of ‘Nissan,’ and crossed the Red Sea, Ezra’s exodus departed from a river in the first month. Certainly, the symbolism of recreating such a formative occurrence wasn’t lost on the members of the entourage, giving them tremendous courage and hope.  “Patterns of Evidence: The Exodus” investigates phenomenal historical and archaeological evidence of the Egyptian Exodus, in a quest to determine whether or not the famous story of the Exodus is fact or fiction.

Calculating the Messiah’s Arrival

In the words of one Rabbi, “it’s not the clock that tells us when Moshiach is here, but it is a return of the Jewish people to their God that triggers the Messianic age.”
