The Lord Said to Aaron

As I recently was studying Exodus, I noted something I always read over without seeing in my previous readings. I missed what the Lord said to Aaron. I usually was so focused on the interaction between God and Moses. So much of the text references what the Lord commands Moses, and the responses to the […]

Hand Holder

The fight was on with the Israelites facing the Amalekites. During the battle, Moses was standing up on a hill. The Bible says that if Moses held his arms up, the Israelites were winning the battle; if Moses put down his arms, the battle changed significantly. For Israel to win, Moses needed to keep up […]

Powerful Words and Deeds

There will always be some things that we are very good at and some things that are not very easy to undertake. We have weaknesses. Some of us are uncoordinated. Some of us do not do well speaking in front of crowds. Some of us are not good with math. We all have something we […]

Insignificant to You

A big question stood out when I was reading Numbers 16 and the account of Korah’s greed. Does it seem insignificant to you? What a question for us to consider in life.

Gold Calf Assistance

Providing gold calf assistance is not something we should strive to do in life, but sadly it happens very quickly. Every time I read Exodus 32, I get upset to see how fast Aaron was to lead the people to sin greatly without hesitation. We do not read of any attempt to sway the people. […]

Pharaoh Sent for Moses

The exchanges between Moses and Pharaoh are interesting. Again and again, Moses approaches Pharaoh to ask for the people to be released to worship God. Pharaoh continues to refuse or to add stipulations that were unacceptable, and then when the plague would come, it would cause him to ask for removal of the plague. Pharaoh […]

When the Israelites defeated the Amalekites, there was something going on at the top of a hill. Moses was holding up his arms with his staff in hand, which caused the Israelites to have an advantage. Whenever his arms went down, the Israelites lost the advantage. Because a person can only hold their arms up […]

The Magicians of Pharaoh

God used Moses as well as Aaron to perform many signs and wonders to get Pharaoh to let His people leave Egypt. During that time, Pharaoh brought forth his magicians to show his power.  Exodus 7:8 is the start of the signs and wonders, and it actually begins with God saying that when Pharaoh says […]
