Egypt Is Switzerland, Spiritually Speaking

In the time of Judah’s captivity in Babylon, the LORD tells the remnant not to go to Egypt. When Herod is searching for the infant Messiah, the LORD tells Joseph to take his family to Egypt.

When it comes to God’s commands, what ultimately matters is not the temporal specifics, but the One who is making the command—and our obedience (or lack thereof) to Him.
