God Saves His People from Egypt

Bible Base – Exodus 3 – 12 v 42

God’s people are in Egypt ruled by cruel Pharaoh

image

Pharaoh was a guy who loved to say NO!

Even worse he loved to say NO to God, that will only end in disaster!

Moses is now grown up and God sends him to Pharaoh with a message….

image

Let my people go!

Pharaoh says…….. No!

Pharaoh thinks he’s in control, but God shows Pharaoh plague by plague how He alone is King, and that He rules all things.

Not sure we got them all in, check in your Bible….

Let my people go!  NO!

Finally the worst of all plagues, to show that God rules life.

He alone can judge, but even better, He alone can save.  God says a lamb can die instead, paint the blood on the door to show the lamb has taken your place, you will be safe, and you will be set free.

image

God’s people were safe and set free from being slaves in Egypt, and sang….

………a celebration song, similar to the Johnny cash number made famous by a night in Istanbul UEFA champions league final 2005, an amazing reds victory. The song was different, but they would certainly have been as happy!

Next they reach the Red Sea

image

Pharaoh is chasing, what will they do!!

PANIC! They quickly forgot, God who rules all things saves His people

image

God parts the sea and His people cross to safety

image

ASTOUNDING, this really happened, that’s how great God is.

Then God judges His enemies..

image

God rules all things, to say no to him ends in disaster and death

Like Pharaoh we have all said no to God and deserve disaster; But GOD SAVES!

Jesus the perfect lamb of God took my place, shed his blood so I can escape judgement, and be free, YIPPEE!

God is a saving God

image

He is our King!

Your Thoughts

Beautiful work!

image

Flies and Gnats were better at listening to God than Pharaoh! Thanks lads,  Good point!

image

image

The little ones ate lots of jelly and made an amazing parting sea

image

WOW!

Good working and thinking, try and do a brain stretch at home this week

read John 1 v 29

Why do you think John called Jesus this?

read John 19 v 28 – 37

Jesus died at the time they celebrated Passover, remembering God’s rescue, but they missed his even better one.

read Romans 6 v 23

What has God done for us?

Yippee! celebration dance time, thankful life time!

God Saved Moses from Pharoah

Bible Base – Exodus 1 – 2 v 10

Joseph and his large family moved to Egypt and the family carried on getting bigger!

image

Time passes, God’s people stay in Egypt, but know it’s not the land God has promised them

image

A new Pharoah comes to power who doesn’t know about Joseph and worries that this big group of people could cause trouble for him, he makes a terrible plan…..

Kill the baby boys.

But what Pharaoh didn’t plan for was feisty Godly women ignoring him, and trusting God, first the midwives, and then……

image

Jochabed

image

And Miriam

They made a plan to keep Moses safe

image image

image

Moses was floated down the Nile in a basket, right to where the princess was bathing, brilliant!

GOD SAVED MOSES

Pharaoh thinks he can wipe God’s people out

But God takes the one baby he needs, floats him right into Pharaoh’s home and raises him under his nose at his expense.

Even when things look terrible, God is working his brilliant plan of salvation, Jesus the innocent, being put to death by cruel unjust leaders, God’s brilliant rescue plan for his people. Moses the baby, protected and saved by God will be used by Him to rescue his people.
