The song of Moses

by Jean-Louis Coraboeuf

"Then Moses and the children of Israel sang this song to the Lord, and spoke, saying: I will sing to the Lord, for He has triumphed gloriously! The horse and its rider He has thrown into the sea!" (Exodus 15:1).

The song of Moses was sung by the Hebrew people after the exodus from Egypt and crossing the Red Sea. With a mighty hand, God made His glory burst through engulfing Pharaoh's chariots and horsemen into the sea.

The apostle John had a vision of the removed Church: visualized by a crowd who was before the throne of God, singing the song of Moses and the song of the Lamb (Revelation 15:3). As the Hebrews had escaped God's judgement upon Egypt, all the saints had also escaped the judgement of God upon the nations – the wrath of God manifested through the 7 bowls poured out on earth just before the return of Jesus Christ (Revelation 16).
