“Pharaoh got up in the night, he and all his servants and all the Egyptians, and there was a great cry [of heartache and sorrow] in Egypt, for there was no house where there was not someone dead. Then he called for Moses and Aaron at night and said, “Get up, get out from among my people, both you and the Israelites; and go, serve the LORD, as you said. Take both your flocks and your herds, as you have said, and go, and [ask your God to] bless me also.”” (EXODUS 12:30-32 AMP)
Reading the account of the plagues of judgments done by God in Egypt, I feel really frustrated by the stubbornness of Pharaoh and his refusal to let the children of Israel go.
I believe that there is a very important reason for God allowing Israel’s deliverance to be dragged out like this and not an immediate, decisive one.
He is teaching us a principle of deliverance from bondage.
Out of all the plagues that God did through Moses and Aaron in Egypt, only one of them is a picture of Jesus.
That plague is the last one, the “Death of the Firstborn” where every household of the children of Israel (in short) was instructed to roast an unblemished lamb, eat it, and paint the blood of the lamb on the doorpost and lintel of their house.
The lamb represents Jesus the “Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world”. There are many lessons about Jesus to learn from the Passover lamb:
“Tell all the congregation of Israel, ‘On the tenth [day] of this month they are to take a lamb or young goat for themselves, according to [the size of] the household of which he is the father, a lamb or young goat for each household. ~‘Now if the household is too small for a lamb [to be consumed], let him and his next door neighbor take one according to the number of people [in the households]; according to what each man can eat, you are to divide the lamb. ~‘Your lamb or young goat shall be [perfect] without blemish or bodily defect, a male a year old; you may take it from the sheep or from the goats. ~‘You shall keep it until the fourteenth day of the same month, then the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel is to slaughter it at twilight. ~‘Moreover, they shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and on the lintel [above the door] of the houses in which they eat it. ~‘They shall eat the meat that same night, roasted in fire, and they shall eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. ~‘Do not eat any of it raw or boiled in water, but roasted in fire--both its head and its legs, along with its inner parts. ~‘You shall let none of the meat remain until the morning, and anything that remains left over until morning, you shall burn completely in the fire.” (EXODUS 12:3-10 AMP)
God passed over every household that had the blood of the Passover lamb on its doorposts and lintel:
“For the LORD will pass through to strike the Egyptians; and when He sees the blood on the lintel [above the entry way] and on the two doorposts, the LORD will pass over the door and will not allow the destroyer to come into your houses to slay you.” (EXODUS 12:23 AMP)
Pharaoh, which represents the devil, only let the children of Israel go after the final plague which involves the Passover lamb (Jesus).
Sandcastles Don't Last Forever
This is the eBook version.

About the Book:
One day when I was singing praises to God, an image floated up in my spirit: a big and beautiful sandcastle being washed away by the waves from the sea. God was teaching me the futility of holding tightly onto worldly possessions because like the sandcastle, they won't last, and one day will cease to exist.
He taught me from His word to focus on Him and by doing so, I would reap great eternal rewards before Jesus' throne at the start of the Millennium. These rewards will last forever and can't be destroyed or stolen.
It is my prayer that the revelations in this book will help you to live with a focus on the things above where God is, fulfill your God-given calling in life, be happier and to accumulate more eternal rewards to your account.
In this Book, you will learn about:
- Heavenly investment advice and the futility of worldly pursuits from a trillionaire in the Bible
- Why God has to reward us in order to be righteous
- When and how God will destroy the current earth and sky to make way for new ones
- The types of fireproof works that earn eternal rewards at the end of time
- The abundant rewards of doing good works while abiding by the non-disclosure agreement between God and you
- The difference between the temporary places of torment: Sheol and Abaddon
- Who is the Antichrist and his name revealed in the Bible
- What is the Mark of the Beast and why it disqualifies its recipients from receiving salvation
- The different judgments at the throne of Jesus Christ and what it means for you as a believer
- How to fulfill your calling and maximize your gifts to receive the best eternal rewards
Testimonials about the contents of this book:
"Sandcastles Don't Last Forever is very well written, its message loud and clear. Milton Goh gives common-sense insight on often confusing Scripture, which is much appreciated in these troubled times. My understanding of the Bible has definitely improved."
- Mike Garrett, first Editor/ Publisher for Stephen King and Author of Christian Novel "Innocence Denied", from USA
"This book is absolutely breathtaking. We don't work to be saved but were created to do good works. I am so energized and excited to know God values our works and we will be rewarded. This is all Glory to Jesus... I cant wait to throw my crowns at his feet and thank him for saving my life!" - Evangelist Michael Clark from USA
"Dear Milton Goh, I truly thank our Abba, Father for the revelations in this book. It is so amazing how I begin to discover important verses in the Bible that I have never read. That instead of following riches, with sleepless nights, and actually shortening our lives, we are just to 'Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ', and 'Love one another'. How beautiful to find out that actually in the Bible there is both 'Earthly or Worldly Investment Wisdom' and 'Eternal Investment Wisdom' according to the revelations here from Ecclesiastes 5:14-17 WEB)!; “It seems like Solomon was not only wise at earning material riches but also at earning eternal riches.” All the glory to our Lord Jesus Christ! God bless you Milton Goh for such a wonderful book!" - Nitta Nierra from Belgium
