“Deliver us from the Evil” : “Deliver us from the Evil” Why do we have to pray this prayer so frequently? Slide 2: Deliverance is a common theme in the bible On this day you shall explain to your son, 'This is because of what the LORD did for me when I came out of Egypt.‘ It shall be as a sign on your hand and as a reminder on your forehead; thus the law of the LORD will ever be on your lips, because with a strong hand the LORD brought you out of Egypt. Therefore, you shall keep this prescribed rite at its appointed time from year to year.” Exodus 13 8 -10 Slide 3: "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, 9 because he has anointed me to bring glad tidings to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, and to proclaim a year acceptable to the Lord.“ Luke 4 18-20 Both verses contain a message of deliverance. Slide 4: Deliverance was not complete by freeing from slavery in Egypt. Israel has to be in desert for 40 years even after coming out of Egypt. Jesus spend 40 days in desert after his baptism. Slide 5: Israel could not enter into the promised land due to their disobedience. 3 major tests Jesus had 3 tests in the dessert too. First test Food “ You have brought us out into the wilderness to kill this whole assembly with hunger” Ex 16:3 Slide 6: Second test “Why did you bring us out of Egypt, to kill us and our children and our cattle with thirst ?” Ex 17 :3 Third test – Worshiping golden calf.
