‘God’s saints in tight spots’ #5: Moses (Exodus 4:18-5:21)

There aren’t many men in the Bible of more importance than Moses. Selected by God to be the redeemer of His people, Moses faced a huge challenge for all of his days – none more so that at the outset of his ministry when God sent him to Pharaoh with the demand to ‘let My people go’. It didn’t go down so well with Pharaoh, nor with the rest of the people of Israel. Exodus 4:18-5:21 fills in the details and reminds us of the fact that God is in all our circumstances – even when we’re having a ‘bad day’.

‘Moses before the Lord’ (Exodus 33:12-23)

Rev. Philip Burns continues this series highlighting the text of Exodus 33. The passage speaks of Moses’ bold approach to God in prayer that he might not pour out His wrath upon the wayward people of Israel and that he might see something of God’s glory. This happened when God put Moses on a rock and covered Moses with His hand as His glory passed by. The passage challenges to also be bold in our approach to God’s throne which will enable us to be bold in sharing the gospel with others. We also have been granted access into the presence of God through the Lord Jesus Christ to know something of this glory.

‘That golden calf’ (Exodus 32:1-35)

Rev. Philip Burns begins this series of messages on the people of Israel’s journey through the desert at Exodus 32. The text tells how the people of Israel worshiped the golden calf in the desert. The core problem was not just idolatry but unbelief which led them forget all about the God who saved them and His commands to them. The circumstances caused by the absence of Moses remind us that Jesus our Redeemer is also ‘out of sight’ and the question is whether or not we will live and act in faith or unbelief until the day He returns.
