This Easter as you go through all the rituals your families has developed for Easter, please take time among all the bunnies to remember The Lamb that takes away the sins of the world. And remember He was poured out for you. In addition, remember… OUR Passover Lamb Lives!

This night would be remembered by Jews for the rest of time. During Passover every year, devout Jews remember the Passover Seder meal around their family dining room tables. We remember it even more often than yearly, as we participate in Holy Communion as given to us by Christ Jesus, Himself.

I cannot know what Moses might have been thinking when he and Aaron set out for Egypt from Midian. What an amazing week it must have been. To begin with he was just watching sheep graze. But then he saw a bush burning. And not just an ordinary burning bush; a burning bush from which God Almighty spoke to him. And the next thing he knows he is on his way to Egypt to inform the Pharaoh that he was going to let all his slaves leave into freedom. What a week. It would not be long before Moses and Aaron were standing before the Pharaoh himself.

As we know from last week, Moses was called by God with the use of a Burning Bush that was not consumed by the fire of God. From that point on Moses was truly a changed man. With the Call of God on his heart Moses set out to Egypt to deliver the Israelites from their bondage. But it would not be a simple task by any measure.

We started talking about Moses last week. We talked about how he was set afloat by his mother, Jochebed, in a homemade papyrus basket, or ark as Charles Swindoll calls it. There are some great lessons for us to learn from Moses life, but we can’t cover them all in one sermon. What I want to talk about today is The Three Lives of Moses.

Through the years, as the numbers of the Israelites grew, the Pharaoh feared them more and more. He feared them revolting against Egypt or joining with one of Egypt’s enemies. And with this fear in mind the Pharaoh also issued an order that all male children of the Israelites would be put to death.

Genesis 45:1-3 (34) – Then Joseph could no longer control himself before all his attendants, and he cried out, “Have everyone leave my presence!” So there was no one with Joseph when he made himself known to his brothers. 2 And he wept so loudly that the Egyptians heard him, and Pharaoh’s household heard about it. 3 Joseph said to his brothers, “I am Joseph! Is my father still living?” But his brothers were not able to answer him, because they were terrified at his presence.

Remember, in Joseph’s life we want to watch for these four specific lessons: You must not be weakened by you situation; You must not be deceived by the persuasion; You must not be gentle with your emotions; You must not be confused with the immediate results.

Joseph is headed into dangerous, dark territory. He was sold to slave traders who were on their way to Egypt. How could this possibly work out good for Joseph? How could Joseph survive this with any possibility of having anything near an ordinary life? Look at what God tells us in Proverbs 16:7 – When a man’s ways are pleasing to the Lord, He makes even his enemies live at peace with him.

In this passage (Genesis 32:22-28) we saw God change Jacob’s name to Israel. Jacob wrestled with God all night, into the dawn. We too, are to wrestle with God, all night, if that is what it takes; wrestling with Him in prayer and meditation. God knows how much we want something – and we need to know, also. We need to face it by this wrestling, that shows us how much we do or do not want something.

Over 700 years B.C., Isaiah prophesied the coming Messiah. He proclaimed how Jesus would come, “as a Child” – For to us a child is born. And… he proclaimed what the eventual outcome would be: Of the increase of his government and peace there will be no end.
