The story lays claim to a great mystery of Biblical proportion even non-Christians have heard about.
While we know God used the bush to get his attention, there is more to the story.
40 years had passed since Moses was kicked out of Egypt but what had changed?
Pharaoh? Had the slaves been set free? Had his people forgotten him?
Who knew, but the change was Moses.
Far from the elite life of Egyptian royalty, he had been in the school of hard knocks for 4 decades.
He went from privilege to poverty; from Egyptian born to his true roots as a Hebrew and from arrogant pride to obscure humility.
So what does this have to do with modern society?
If you read the papers, surf the net, or turn on the news it is easy to get depressed quickly. The world is falling apart before our eyes; innocents are being attacked and killed in the name of Allah and America is floating in a sea of moral decay.
Much is being spread of destruction, financial collapse, wars and rumors of wars so where is God?
“I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
I don’t know about you, but I worship a big God.
He is greater than any catastrophic event.
He has armies of angels he has let loose from the heavens with the armor of giants and last I heard he has more money than Solomon….
He can be anywhere all the time and has eyes in the back of his head.
God sees all and knows all.
People of God, he wants us to do as Moses did; stop and look at this site. The secular world sees only secular pictures only it is what they don’t see that counts.
Moses maybe took a “double-take?” I would have. If for no other reason except out of curiosity.
He laid his eyes upon the supernatural; his feet on Holy Ground.
Maybe God gave him glimpses of his future; his calling to be the “Deliverer.”
Maybe God revealed his love for the Jewish people and allowed Moses to soak in it himself.
Maybe God’s glory was so profound, Moses experienced what no other man would ever encounter.
The saying, “things often get worse before they get better” rings a bell right now.
The enemy is well aware his time is short and he is making good use of it. What he isn’t aware of are the “burning bushes” God has planted around the world.
If the enemy has beefed up his assaults on mankind what do you think God is doing?
Planting potatoes? No!
God is playing hide and seek.
Isaiah 54: 17 “No weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you.”
Sending in his forces. Revving up his armies of angels. Transporting military with more back-up power than all of the devil’s demons combined.
God is planting seeds of his warriors Moses, David and Jeremiah to line his people with courage, strength and peace of mind.
He is bringing in his wisdom, knowledge and understanding through the likes of Solomon.
And…..has anyone heard that Joseph has returned to Egypt?
I have. He is already there in a prison in a repeat performance of Joseph, the son of Jacob.
God has said it is too late for the Middle East to win now. He has set his people in place to fulfill his word.
Israel is forever.
God is beating the devil to his latest punch.
Psalm 122:6 “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. May those who love you be secure.”
