Do not go to Egypt …

Jeremiah 40:7-42:22; 1 Timothy 4:1-16; Proverbs 25:11-20

“Do not go to Egypt” (Jeremiah 42:19) – Here is a Word from the Lord which is more than geographical directions. It is a Word concerning our walk with God. In Scripture, “Egypt” is not simply a particular geographical location. “Egypt” is symbolic of a proud, unbelieving hardness of heart. “Do not go to Egypt” means “Do not harden your heart against the Lord.” “The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith (1 Timothy 4:1). We must not abandon the faith. In the face of much falling away, God says to His servants, “Devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching and teaching” (1 Timothy 4:13). The Word is to be “aptly spoken … like apples of gold in settings of silver” (Proverbs 25:110. There is nothing more precious than the Word of the Lord.
