In the Greek Exodus is Exodos, meaning the road or way out. Many people think that pandemic has brought many back to the church ( building) . There have been those who left church, return back to God! Does this mean they returned to church? ( the building) . How wonderful it is that the pews once again will be filled, occupied by those hungry for the presence of God.
It seems the love for church ( the building) has been revived. Believers now have a revelation of who Jesus is. His love for them, and plan for their lives. It’s like there was an awakening! Pandemic has caused people to make room for God. Does this lead back to church? Will all who returned to Christ , Go back to a physical building?
Exodus – A mass departure of people. This maybe touchy, but I believe there has been a Exodus. Many have long left the church , while sitting in the church. What pandemic did was give them an option , they were able to get to know God without the filters. They found community with other online believers.
I believe the biggest Exodus was the mindset of the people of God. No longer do they come in search of religious ceremonies , religious doctrine that places shackles on you. We want the face of God, to be where he dwells. Where we can bring the sacrifice of praise.
In the book of Exodus , Pharaoh had freed the Israelites. God did not take them the route near the Philistines , because they would change their minds. If they people would have had to face war they would have returned to Egypt. They would have rather returned back to bondage. If the people get to a building , with no presence, they are going to change their minds.
