This week we look at the symbols of Egypt and Israel, then at the battle Israel has with the Amalekites. As the Israelites fought to escape enslavement, they won when they had Moses’ staff lifted up for all to see. When Israel sins again they are attacked by serpents. Moses is told to raise up a serpent on a staff, which when the Israelites look to, they will not die. Christ, as was predicted, was raised up on a cross. Do we look to Him for peace? For victory?
