The People of Israel & the God Who Hears

November 11, 2018

            Text:  Exodus 1-2

 

The Heritage of Israel

                 Jacob’s family of 70 persons settles in Egypt

                 The children of Israel increase and multiply

                 God keeps His promise to bless Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob

 

The Hardship of Israel

                 After 200 years a king arises in Egypt who did not know Joseph

                 Systematic mistreatment of the Israelites

                                   Servitude

                                   Forced Labor

                                   Enslavement

                                   Genocide

 

The Honor of Israel

                The midwives refusal to obey the king’s orders

                Civil disobedience – OBEY GOD -

                                                                       - BEFORE MAN

                                 When man requires what God forbids

                                 When man forbids what God commands

 

The Plan of God

               A son is born and placed in a wicker basket in the reeds of the Nile                           at three months old.

               The child is found and adopted by Pharaoh’s daughter

               Pharaoh’s daughter names him Moses

                        Egyptian meaning:  is born

                        Hebrew meaning:  to draw out, to deliver

 

The plan of Moses

               When Moses was grownhe recognized the hardship of his brethren

               He killed an abusive Egyptian and hid his body

               The news travelled regarding his deed, and pharaoh heard it

               Pharaoh sought to kill Moses

               Moses fled to Midian and settled there

 

The God who hears and sees

               The sons of Israel sighed regarding their bondage

               They cried out, and God heard their cry

               God heard their groaning, and remembered His covenant

               God saw the sons of Israel, and took notice of them

 

Timeless Truths

               God keeps His promises

               God keeps His people

               His people follow His will

               God provides for all He plans

               God’s ways are different than ours

               God knows our troubles and hears our cry
