Bringing Others To Your Place Of Encounter


Still 'fine-tuning' our process. You can get to the original article HERE

At the foot of Mount Sinai, the barefoot prophet is given
God’s mission. ‘Go to Pharaoh and tell him to let my people go into the
wilderness so they may worship me.’


And the mission of God spoken stirred up Moses’ youthful
passion when he lived a contradictory life in Pharaoh’s house while his own kin
were being oppressed and kept in submission to Egypt’s power. Moses remembered
how his own anger and led him to an act of murder.


Now, the author of reconciliation is sending Moses back to
confront the injustice and to call for deliverance. The story will tell us
exactly how unsure and uncertain Moses was and his series of questions to
disqualify himself from God’s purposes.


One thing that Moses could not do was argue with the sign of
the burning bush and the clear voice of God telling him these things. This
place of encounter was happening to Moses so that others could also come and
encounter God.


Exodus 3:

11 But
Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites
out of Egypt?”

12 And
God said, “I will be with you. And this will be the sign to you that it is I
who have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you will
worship God on this mountain.”



Many events would occur as Moses’ left this encounter and
began the journey back to Egypt. If Moses ever had reasons to doubt, he moved
forward in faith. As each chapter would unfold, God confirmed the mission with
signs and wonders following.


Finally, God’s people were assembled in the same place that
Moses had encountered God. This time it was not a burning bush, but a
mountaintop covered in fire, dark clouds, and thunder. Not just the ground
around the burning bush, but a whole mountain that was holy ground and


Although it was terrifying to the crowds, God’s invited
guest Moses came up into the mountain of holiness. There he would encounter God
and be given a gift to change the history of the world to this present day.



Exodus 31:

18 The
Lord Finished Speaking To Moses On Mount Sinai. Then He Gave Him The Two
Tablets Of The Covenant Law. They Were Made Out Of Stone. The Words On Them
Were Written By The Finger Of God.



In the holy place, holy things are given to bless the world.
All of God’s chosen ones were being commissioned at Mount Sinai to relinquish
their bondage to Egypt and find freedom by coming into agreement with God.
