THE SONG OF MOSES AND THE SONG OF THE LAMB

Dr. D. K. Olukoya

Isaiah51:11says,“Therefore the redeemed of the Lord shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.”

Here the Bible talks about the Song of Moses and the Song of the Lamb. In the message, we would be considering the following: What is the Song of Moses? When can it be sung? Who is qualified to sing it?

In Exodus 15: 1-19, we find the song of Moses: “Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the Lord, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the Lord, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea. The Lord is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt him. The Lord is a man of war: the Lord is his name. Pharaoh’s chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red Sea. The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone. Thy right hand, O Lord, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O Lord, hath dashed in pieces the enemy. And in the greatness of thine excellency thou hast overthrown them that rose up against thee: thou sentest forth thy wrath, which consumed them as stubble. And with the blast of thy nostrils the waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright as an heap, and the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea. The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them. Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters. Who is like unto thee, O Lord, among the gods? Who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders? Thou stretchedst out thy right hand, the earth swallowed them. Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation. The people shall hear, and be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestine. Then the dukes of Edom shall be amazed; the mighty men of Moab, trembling shall take hold upon them; all the inhabitants of Canaan shall melt away. Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of thine arm they shall be as still as a stone; till thy people pass over, O Lord, till the people pass over, which thou hast purchased. Thou shalt bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of thine inheritance, in the place, O Lord, which thou hast made for thee to dwell in, in the Sanctuary, O Lord, which thy hands have established. The Lord shall reign for ever and ever. For the horse of Pharaoh went in with his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea, and the Lord brought again the waters of the sea upon them; but the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst of the sea.”

The question is: are you able to sing the song of Moses? Bible history reveals that Jacob left the land of Canaan for Egypt to look for food. The children of Israel were in slavery in Egypt for many years. Why did God keep them there that long?

In Genesis 46: 5-7, we see the prophecy. It says, “And Jacob rose up from Beersheba, and the sons of Israel carried Jacob their father, and their little ones, and their wives, in the wagons which Pharaoh had sent to carry him. And they took their cattle, and their goods, which they had gotten in the land of Canaan, and came into Egypt, Jacob, and all his seed with him. His sons, and sons’ sons with him, his daughters, and his sons’ daughters, and all his seed brought he with him into Egypt.” Genesis 15: 12-15: “And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram, and lo an horror of great darkness fell upon him. And he said unto Abram, know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; and also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge. And afterward shall they come out with great substance. And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace, thou shalt be buried in a good old age.”

Why did the seed of Abraham have to go through all these? It is for a few reasons:

1. God gives a picture that those heading for heaven must first become strangers/pilgrims here. Sometimes when somebody has not been through bondage he will not fully understand freedom.

2. Heavenly pilgrims must pass through Egypt. Egypt represents the world. Everyone who is born again has to leave Egypt.

3. Egyptians will afflict us if we remain in Egypt. That is, remaining in the world and dancing to its tune will only lead to suffering.

4. God wanted these people to pass through their period of testing.

THE SCHOOLS OF GOD

In a sense, God is telling us that His various children will pass through various schools until they pass their exams. Many of us are passing through schools now and we wonder what is happening.

The school of good behaviour: God may be passing you through the school of good behaviour. God wants you to adjust that your behaviour. Until you pass, there will be no rest.

The school of humility: If God sees that you are not humble, He will cause you to work under people who are inferior to you, until you learn the principle of humility. You will be complaining, “O Lord, I am more qualified than these people.” When you learn the lesson of humility, He will say, “Okay, now you can go.”

The school of self-control: God is passing some people through the school of self-control. They have been out of control and have caused problems for themselves and are trying to solve the problems now. But the lesson God is teaching is that you must be able to control yourself. You must be able to speak to yourself and say, “Flesh, I am the controller here. You cannot tell me what to do, I will tell you what to do.” That is why Paul said, “But I put my body under and bring it into subjection lest at any time when I have preached to others I myself will be a cast away.” It means that the flesh can send somebody to hell fire.

The school of prayer: God is passing some people through the school of prayer and He creates prayer points for them to pray. He wants them to pass an examination.

The school of fasting: God is running some people through the school of fasting. Some of the people in this school had a lot of money before, and they spent it sponsoring beauty contests, boxing matches, pasted it on the heads of women at parties. God then said, “Okay, there is no problem, your fasting will soon start. “Now their fasting has started and the money has disappeared. God is teaching them a lesson. He is saying, “When I bless you again, you will know how to handle money.”

The Son of God Himself, Jesus, passed through various schools while He was on earth. Imagine the Son of God, the One who created men. These men stood before Him and argued on the Scriptures which He wrote.

Many people cannot sing the song of victory today because they are still suffering in Egypt. But praise God that the song of Moses is for us all. In Egypt, the Israelites cried to God and He reacted to their cry. God sent Moses to them. God first worked on him and he started his ministry at the old age of 80. He went on and led the people of the Lord away from the land of bondage. When they came out, the enemies began to pursue them. God had to deal with their enemies. He sent plagues of darkness, locust, blood, etc, upon them. The Israelites became too hot to handle before they were released. The stubborn pursuers still ran after them until they eventually killed themselves. After they had finished themselves in the Red Sea came the song of Moses.

So, the song of Moses is the song of the overcomer. It is the song of the victorious ones. It is the song of the winner. It is the song of those who are more than conquerors. Jesus does not want anybody to live a life of bondage. Therefore, if you find that the enemies do not want to release you on time, you can use the method of Moses and send plagues upon them. After the Egyptians perished, the song of Moses came.

THE INITIAL AND THE FINAL SONGS OF VICTORY

You can make yourself qualified to sing the Song of Moses. We have the initial victory and the final victory. Our initial victory is the victory over the devil and the flesh. But the initial victory is not good enough. The best victory is the final one.

WHAT IS THE SONG OF THE LAMB?

Revelation 15: 3-4: , “And they sang the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty, just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints. Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? For thou only art holy. For all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgements are made manifest.”

The song of the Lamb is the song of the redeemed when they get to heaven. You will first sing the song of Moses before the song of the Lamb. Everybody will be a chorister in heaven because they have to sing the song of Moses and the song of the Lamb.

It is very sad but true that many church goers are going to hell fire. The neglect of talent will send some people to hell fire. Some people are doing nothing for the Master. Such people just come for miracles, signs and wonders. They go away with all the blessings and contribute nothing. Such people should be assured that they are going to hell fire and there will be no song of Moses or that of the Lamb.

The servant that buried his talent landed in hell fire. His master said, “Push him out into utter darkness where there is gnashing of teeth.” And he was thrown out. Why? He refused to use his talent.

Some people will go to hell fire because of unprofitable spiritual development. They started with one ministry and there was no growth but all they were interested in was how the place was run and how much they could collect. They are not interested in the spread of the gospel and the spiritual growth of people. Religious attachment to dead churches will end in hell fire. God did not ask you to go to church to warm benches on Sundays. To serve Jesus is better than wearing expensive clothes and sitting on decorated seats. When a person is doing a lot of activities but his spiritual life is not deep, he is living a superficial life. Such a person cannot sing the song of the Lamb. When a person spends only 20 minutes from Monday to Friday to read the Bible, such a person is on his way to hell fire.

All those who have enrolled in the school of Jonah: God told them to go somewhere, they said, no, that they would go to where they liked. Hell fire is awaiting such people. Unscriptural marriages and ungodly relationships would lead people to hell fire. People involved in such exercises cannot sing the song of the Lamb. All believers who come to the house of God and are still busy playing games with the devil, cannot sing the song of Moses.

The average modern- day Christian is afraid of being described as fanatical or being referred to as a “madman for Jesus”. Beloved, until you get to the level where people would look at you and say, “You are mad,” your name may be blotted out of the Book of life. Jesus was called a mad man, Paul was called a mad man.

Many are afraid of a complete revision of their lives. Sisters who dress differently to church and dress differently outside are afraid of a complete revision. When God asks people to give up some certain things, they run away. Sometimes, our greatest blessings come to us by way of what people call madness. When you start carrying out the instructions of the Lord, a lot of people will think you are mad.

For one to sing the song of Moses there must be freedom from pride, envy and malice. Deception and impurity in the heart have to go. I pray that evil prophecy will not be fulfilled in your life, in Jesus’ name.
