There are very few Americans that deny the importance of the charity work that that is done by the Salvation Army. Very few people appreciate the work that has been done by the Army of God the Jewish people. The world is beginning to appreciate the Jewish people which live in their communities even if they generally appear to be selfish that they help each other and show very little interest in other people only Jews.
The story of the Exodus of the Jewish people is the first mention in the Bible of The people of Israel as an army. In Exodus 12:17 is written, “And you should watch over your unleavened bread (related to faith) because in the height of this day I have taken out your soldiers from the land of Egypt.” God calls the Jewish people soldiers. He is giving them a mission to accomplish. There is a war in life over good and evil, life and death.
In the same chapter of Exodus it says that God brought out of Egypt Chamushim which in the Hebrew language has two meanings, 1)the people armed to fight and 2) one fifth of the people. It is hard to believe that only one fifth of the Jews who were oppressed in Egypt left with Moses since they had suffered terrible oppressions. It is easy to believe that they took with them weapons even though these weapons were nothing compared to the weapons of the army of the Egyptians.
