Building a People of God With Unusual Characters
Moses, One of God’s Unusual Characters A man born under the threat of death because he was a Hebrew mail, Moses was raised in a Pharaoh’s family. But the first thing we hear of him as an adult is that he is the murderer of a slave-driver, who was beating a Hebrew slave. But that didn’t make him popular…

In Romans 9:14-18 Paul begins to answer the question of how God is just in unconditional election by emphasizing God's mercy and compassion revealed uniquely in unconditional election.
Many people are unwilling to experience the new things God is trying to do in their lives because of the baggage that keeps them longing for the past. When we wonder, "what if" or "if only," we rob ourselves of the fresh work of God within us that can take us places we cannot imagine.
15 But when Pharaoh saw that there was relief, he hardened his heart and did not heed them, as the Lord had said. 14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. 15 For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry…
Following Moses, Finding Jesus
We're going back to Bible College to unpack the details behind the plagues account in Exodus. Welcome to Plagues 101! Mankind has always been tempted to look past the Creator and worship creation. The Egyptians fell into this trap as well. God uses Pharaoh's hardened heart to pour out a calculated attack on every Egyptian false god. One by one, they all fall until the only one left standing, is Pharaoh. In the end, we see that what is created should lead us to the Creator, then to the Cross.
We live in a time when people are continually saying there is no God and the Bible is make believe. Many say there is no evidence of the presence of the Hebrews in Egypt or of their mass exodus. Is that true? Has any evidence been found of an early Canaanite or Semitic presence in Egypt? Pastor Clay touches on only the tip of the pyramid of evidence supporting the Biblical account of Joseph and Moses. May this only be the beginning of your journey seeking out the truth of the Hebrews' history in Egypt.

Story of the Bible: Creation to Israel
Thomas Choy • Sermon • • 340 views
As the Israelites multiply and are enslaved by Pharaoh, we will look at the story of Moses, Pharaoh and his hardness of heart, and the exodus and creation of the Israelites. Through this narrative we will look at the power and graciousness of God and His demand for obedience as he liberates the nation of Israel.
Pentecost means fifty. The feast of Pentecost was celebrated every year by the Jewish people, fifty days after the feast of Passover. Passover got its name when the Angel of Death passed through the land of Egypt during the final and greatest plague, killing the firstborn son in every home. But the Israelites…

The songs of Moses & Miriam illustrate the way to respond to God after seeing His mighty salvation. How should this affect our praise and honour, having a greater salvation in Jesus Christ?

1) JANEIRO: Escravidão do povo Hebreu 1 E stes, pois, são os nomes dos filhos de Israel, que entraram no Egito com Jacó; cada um entrou com sua casa: 2 Rúben, Simeão, Levi e Judá; 3 Issacar, Zebulom e Benjamim; 4 Dã, Naftali, Gade e Aser. 5 Todas as almas, pois, que descenderam de Jacó foram setentaalmas;…
You’ve likely heard the old expression, “There but for the grace of God go I.” As we confront the depravity of the human heart in our world, we have no grounds to boast in our own righteousness by contrast nor should we fail to imagine our own desperate plight outside the sheer grace of our God. As we resume our Exodus study, we’ll trace how scripture uses Pharaoh’s own heart as a case study in humanity’s totally depraved condition when the hope of divine rescue is refused.
