Bible Commentary for Exodus 4:17

Wesley's Notes for Exodus 4:17


4:17 Take this rod - The staff or crook he carried as a shepherd, that he might not be ashamed of that mean condition out of which God called him. This rod must be his staff of authority, and must be to him instead, both of sword and sceptre.


Discussion for Exodus 4:17

  • Chris Nnoli on Exodus 4:17
    This scripture remains one of the most powerful argument that God wants the church to operate in the anointing and the power of the Holy Spirit, without which we cannot effectively minister the Gospel to this generation. We need to go back into closet fellowship with the Lord, and remain in prayer before Him till He pours His Spirit, with the enabling power to reach the Gospel, break the power of sin over the people and empower us as believers to begin to live true to the faith once delivered to the saints. Just as Moses was given the Rod or staff, we now have the Word, our own version of the Rod, and the Holy Spirit to help us along with it. Without a clear cut display of the power of the Risen Christ in healing and deliverance, and other forms of miracles, the church will not fulfill the great commission and could lose the battle for the souls of men in our sin ridden society.
