"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might!"
Outside Jesus (God) Himself... And as the 'OLD' Testament goes... Probably the single most important person in The Bible. No one to date - has had a more humble heart than Moses!! God said that - not I! As if I need say more? Through Moses, God led Israel out of Egypt... (I wanna clarify... PLEASE - Moses didn't DO anyyy of this. GOD did it through MOSES!!) But THROUGH Moses... Ten plagues were carried out that God "might show His mighty wonders" ~ Exodus 11:9 "And the Lord said unto Moses, Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you; that my wonders may be multiplied in the land of Egypt.", God caused the Israelites to win battles with full armies by just the raising of Moses hand... Parted the Red Sea by the raising of his staff (like this replica I am sure!)... Through the striking of a rock, (supposedly THE rock) (that God told him to 'SPEAK to'), caused water to flow outta said rock... & gave us The Ten Commandments... On top of that? God revealed Himself to, & spoke directly to Moses - AUDIBLY & figuratively face to face, throughout the Exodus; & the rest of his life.. When Moses died... God, Himself, buried him. Not bad at'tall for a fella who, he himself, described as 'slow with words.' Through Moses - God also gave us Genesis.. Which answered the paramount question of every man... Where did we come from? Why.?.? If God hadn't gave us Genesis - who knows what ideas we'd have. HA🤣HA! We might EVEN be stooo-pidgeon enough to thunk we came from a 'big boom bang' - or evolutionized from a baboon, or a cocoon (or WHAT|WHEREVER the foolish think we came from!!).. Somethin' like that, urmm!!
Isn't it strange ((and somewhat saaad!!))- how some of the 'REPORTEDLY' most smartest scholars on earth can be such retard wannabes?? Or believe such garbage?? OUR CREATOR ((& CREATOR OF EVERYTHING THAT IS IN OUR UNIVERSE)), wrote us a BOOK - to not pick it up.. IS FOOLISHNESS!! Spent all those years in textbooks, denoting FACTS.. but in coming to the most impopo fact of ALL... A BIG 'OL FAIL ..Save picking up the MOST IMPORTANT textbook... THE BIBLE!! But thaat IS afterall why God says.. 1 Corinthians 3:19 ~ For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. Of allllllll theories man has derived - the 'big bang' one, gets me the worst! I mean?? Since when have you ever (EVER??!!!!) known of ANYTHING that exploded (or banged big) - that wasn't all destroying!! CERTAINLY couldn't have created something as perfect as the earth was - or moreover - formed life??? This leads me to believe that Darwin (or whatever idiot) concocted this theory must have lived a very VERY boring life. The imagination was running rampent and got away from them!! FAAAR away from them!! ANNNYhoo...
I feel the need to put the warning here.. Links in this story include pictures of the mummified corpse of Pharaoh. For some? That's a "coool!!", but for some, it is gross... I like to think; I give both parties happy. If it's gross; or inapropro to you??? Then don't click it!! It's what the warning is for.. If your in the 'yes' crown; click till your heart's content!! Basically - just take responsibility for your clicking habits! Please don't click then be offended & email me! BEFORE the links however you will see a warning.. Don't wanna see it?? Don't click it! Mmkay? Kay! Sorry - but have had problems in the past where folks ignored the warning then felt the need to write me a long email about the nightmares they were having.. PLEASE take responsibility for your own clicking!! Now??? The story of Moses (with pics where pertinent..)
Cue the Moses comics... you knew THEY were coming, right?? Urmmhmm! Uhhh.. They go on and on.. And usually miss the bus on that it wasn't Moses parting the water (cups his mouth and whispers; 'pssst.. It was GOD!) - But yah, those.... On down to the DIStasteful ones! Pssh!
According to Exodus, (also written by Moses.... According to Exodus 4:10.. the supposed slow of speech guy.. 😉
Moses was born in the month of February or March, around 1391 BC. This was in a time that the Hebrew's were slaves in Egypt and under Egyptian ruler Ramses (aka; Dummy) (aka Pharaoh).. I know the LORD hardened his heart but I think he not ONLY confounded his council, but GOD as well!!🙄 All newborn Hebrew males had been ordered to be put to death by drowning in the river Nile. Seems Pharaoh was worried about the increasing number of Hebrews. The mother of Moses was reluctant to adhere to the rule of drowning to her son.. After about three months, when Jochebed (Moses' mom), could no longer hide him, she put him in a basket and put him on the waters of the Nile, thus abandoning young Moses to God's protection. And protect him - God did!! What was about to happen could in NO way be a coincydink. Moses' sister, Miriam observed the basket until it reached the palace where Pharaoh's daughter, Thermuthis was sun-bathing. Spotting the baby, Thermuthis asked her maidens to fetch it for her. She took Moses with her and kept him, as though he were her son... (alas - saving him from certain death!) After a few unsuccessful attempts to nurse baby Moses, Miriam (Moses' sister) confronted & proposed to Pharaoh's daughter... She could get a Hebrew new mother with milk - to nurse the baby. Upon getting the go ahead.. Miriam went and fetched her mom (also Moses mom) & she was asked to nurse her son (the connection unknown to Pharaoh's daughter. Eventually, he became Thermuthis', son and a younger brother to Ramses II, the future Pharaoh of Egypt.. (Aannnd the same Pharaoh that Moses would later confront to lead Israel across the desert.) Now TELL me God doesn't know how to write a GREAT story! 'Cept with Him - it's real life! ;) Anyway...
Though Moses grew as an Egyptian prince, as Pharaoh's daughter's adopted son - he never forgot that he was a Hebrew. One day, while on his trip to the countryside, on seeing an Egyptian killing a Hebrew, he could not control his temper and killed the Egyptian. He buried the body in the sand. Moses, I'm sure surmised that the Pharaoh was likely to put him to death for killing an Egyptian. To save his hyde, Moses fled to Midian. There, he saved seven of Jethro's daughter from a band of Shepherd haters..
Impressed by Moses' brave act, Jethro adopted him as his son and got his daughter, Zipporah, married to Moses. Moses was made the superintendent of his herds as well. For four decades, Moses stayed in Midian and lived as a shepherd. He was also blessed with a son, Gershom. One day, while Moses was leading his flock to Mount Horeb, he came across a burning bush. Coming closer to it, he realized the bush was not being consumed, then God spoke, revealing His name to Moses, and the plan to go get His chosen people - the Israelites... And sooo - he went...
It was a place Moses knew well.. For it was the palace Moses grew up in. Moses followed the instruction of God absolutely PERFECTLY!! But Pharaoh's heart (WARNING - MUMMY PIC) was very hardened. Thus beginning a loooong negging session where God would put plagues on Egypt (including but not limited to) turning Moses' staff into a snake (but when (WARNING - MUMMY PIC) Pharaoh's magician's were summoned - they too - turned staffs into snakes. So God had Moses' staff gobble up their snake - I LOVE THAT! haha). Other plagues included turning the Nile river to blood, sending a MAJOR load of frogs upon Egypt.. Sending hail upon the Egyptians, & sending the LARGEST swarm ever of gnats upon Egypt. Finally... Pharaoh agreed to let the Hebrews go with Moses.. Thus beginning a loooong journey to the promised land. For 40 years - the Israelites trekked across the desert.. even trekking through the Red Sea, which God parted the waters for them. Here is the purported place where they came out of the sea. The Israelite's grumbled and complained THE WHOLE WAY. Poor Moses could have very successfully navigated a successful aspirin factory!! Some places along the route - still today offer a cool look at history.. This one is at the base of Mt. Sinai.. small huts are still standing. ***As a side note to the mummy photo of Pharaoh?? I think it is faux.. or maybe ANOTHER Pharaoh.. MmBecause as WE KNOW, (or should know), the Pharaoh Moses dealt with, was killed by the crushing waters of the Red Sea!! Still fun to speculate though... Who knows?? MAYBE that Pharaoh's dad, uhm, Pharaoh! Lol 😂🤣
Moses 'saw' the promised land, yet never entered. Thanks to YouTube - we can now see THE place where Moses first saw the 'promised land'.. In the book of Deuteronomy - one final speech from Moses.. IMO the GREATEST speech EVER made & one that should be memorized by ANYONE who is in management to successfully run his/her department/business.
DEATH OF THE PROPHET MOSES...
In Deuteronomy 34.. The text reads..
Then Moses climbed Mount Nebo from the plains of Moab to the top of Pisgah, across from Jericho. There the Lord showed him the whole land—from Gilead to Dan, 2 all of Naphtali, the territory of Ephraim and Manasseh, all the land of Judah as far as the Mediterranean Sea, 3 the Negev and the whole region from the Valley of Jericho, the City of Palms, as far as Zoar. 4 Then the Lord said to him, “This is the land I promised on oath to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob when I said, ‘I will give it to your descendants.’ I have let you see it with your eyes, but you will not cross over into it.” And Moses, the servant of the Lord died there in Moab, as the Lord had said. 6 He buried him in Moab, in the valley opposite Beth Peor, but to this day no one knows where his grave is. 7 Moses was a hundred and twenty years when he died, yet his eyes were not weak nor his strength gone. The Israelite's grieved for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days, until the time of weeping and mourning was over.
Though the Bible doesn't say 'where' God buried Moses.. There 'IS' a memorial @ Mt. Nebo... & is the 'purported' site God buried Moses... How they 'purport' that?? Is as mysterious as the claim.. But here is the stone 'welcoming visitors.'
What a GREAT life!! Moses lived the life of a true servant of The MOST HIGH God!
His can certainly serve as an inspiration to us ALL!!
