What is the most powerful and important part in a chess game? Important we would answer the king who is central to the victory of the game, the whole game hinges upon this piece the most powerful piece would be the queen, although some have suggested the uniqueness of the pawn in their special moves and their plurality if used correctly can have the greatest impact on the game. However, the most powerful and important part in a game of

We all know the moment when someone asks for a volunteer and everyone either shrinks back into their chair or get two feet taller with their hands waving around. In one instance the person with the hand waving, ecstatically jumping would love to be chosen, the other person lower in their chair is merely saying, you can pick anyone else if it is not me. In today’s passage, we see the lack in Moses that is only found in Christ. Moses

Paul states in 1 Corinthians 1:22 that Jews demand signs (cf. Matt 12:38, 16:1; Mark 8:11; Luke 11:16, 29; John 6:30). This is exactly what the Jewish people sought of the promised messiah because this is how God confirmed his word to his. People. This happens throughout the bible but we see it start here in the Book of Exodus, where a prophet is given a word to speak and the Prophet is given signs to confirm the word from

We all know the scene in the movie, we know it because we have seen it so many different times. It happens in all the movies, the headquarters, the dinner, the sideline, or some other meeting place. The movie has built up to what is about to follow. They need to capture the bad guy, defeat the enemy, score a touchdown, and find the dog, child, or some other thing. They have spent the whole movie building to this final

Moses had asked his first question to God, who am I that I should stand before Pharaoh? God’s answer did not address Moses’ question but pointed Moses back to who God is. His answer is based on faith, I will be with you. You will know what I have sent you when you have accomplished what I have sent you. The people of God will worship God on this very mountain. Moses stood there barefoot, face covered. He asks a

It was any other day for Moses the shepherd, or so he thought. Before the sun had risen over the dusty horizon he was up. Counting his sheep, without falling asleep. He was watching over his father-in-law’s flock. Over the past forty years or so he had become part of the Priest of Midian’s family. His wife Zipporah had given birth to two boys, Gershom and Eliezer. He had been rescued from the sword of Pharaoh and he was a

God Remembers (Exodus 2:23-25) One aspect that we fail to grasp often when we read through the Bible is the timeline that we are given. We speak of God’s goodness and graciousness towards his people we focus on how God delivers his people from slavery in the book of Exodus, which is correct you see that in how Moses records the book. But I think it is important for us to be able to consider the dark period of time that

Last week we saw the providence of God’s hand over Moses’ life as a young boy. Protecting him from the hand of Pharaoh by having him raised in the house of Pharaoh. Here Moses received the finest education in the world. However, Moses considered the reproach of Christ greater wealth than the treasures of Egypt (Heb 11:26). The Lord’s hand was upon Moses as he was preparing him to save his people. We see the second installment of how the

Pharaoh has tried to wipe out the sons of Israel and God’s solution to protect the sons is to send one son to stand up and be a mediator for the sons. We see the amazing story of how God works through women to be able to save this child. Last week we saw two women, Shiphrah and Puah, save God’s sons from death. This week we see three women used by God to be able to save this one

As we have begun the book of Exodus, we have pointed out that this is the second book in the Bible and thus we need to see that this story is the first chapter in the book of Exodus but the 51st chapter in the whole story. We have seen some of the promises made in the previous chapters. The beginning of the book of Exodus starts mentioning the Sons of Israel, but what we miss over the course of
