Of late I've become captivated by
Moses!! Hebrews had become slaves to Pharaoh. Pharaoh
became anxious the Hebrews had become too numerous and was afraid that
one day would rise up against Egypt so he pronounced an edit that all
Hebrew baby boys age 2 and under should be thrown into the river.
Moses was born during that time and his mother not willing that her
baby son be killed, hid him in the bulrushes in a waterproof basket.
When one of Pharaoh's daughter's came down to bathe in the river she
saw the basket and heard his cry. When she saw him, she believed
he was a Hebrew baby her father was killing and took him for her own
son. Moses grew up in the palace and since his sister Miriam had
been watching over him, offered the princess her mother as his wet
nurse which was accepted if Moses was returned back to the palace.
As time went on, Moses through circuitous circumstances learned he was
not an Egyptian but the son of a Hebrew slave. When he was grown
he saw an Egyptian knock a Hebrew slave to the ground. It enraged
Moses to killed the Egyptian, believing that no one saw him at the time
but, he was seen. When Moses learned the Pharaoh knew and wanted
him arrested, Moses fled to the land of Median.
As Moses was keeping the flock of Jethro (Median's priest and his
father-in-law) one day he saw a burning bush but the bush was not
consumed. God spoke to him from the burning bush. Moses asked who
he was and God answered, "I am the God of your fathers Abraham, Jacob
and Isaac. The Lord told him that He had seen the deep sorrows of
His people in Egypt and heard their pleas from their harsh taskmasters
and that He would take them out of Egypt into a good land flowing with
milk and honey and that He wanted Moses to go to Pharaoh demanding that
he let His people go. Moses tried to welch out asking God to get
someone else, that he was slow of speech and tongue but God said Aaron
his brother, would go and speak for him. With sincere belief in
God's Word, he and Aaron obeyed.
know) eventually did let God's people go but not until he had to
witness and feel God's terrible wrath to his peril because he didn't
listen or believe God's Words.
Is this not a de'ja
vu now? Who in the world is listening and believes God is Coming
soon for us? Joshua and Caleb were the only ones selected to lead
the Hebrews into the "Land of Milk and Honey" because they never
doubted God! We too will go into our land of milk and honey in
heaven soon as God has said!
Believe and receive....Doubt and do without!
GOD BLESS US EVERYONE!
