Mont Sinai part 1

The journey to Mount Sinai has begun


Lessons starts on the 13th of Nov up to the 19th of Nov

For over 430 years, the people of Israel have been kept as slaves on Egypt, subject to hardships, misery and pain on the hands of people that did not know the God of Israel, nor did they respected Him.

The people cried out to God, and God SAW their affliction, HEARD their cry and CAME DOWN in order to rescue them from their troubles.

But who would God use in order to tell Pharaoh to let His people go? They were not supposed to be slaves, but a free, blessed and rich nation! Who would be bold enough to speak God's message to the mighty and cruel Pharaoh?  

Moses did not know it yet, but he was the chosen one for this important task.

He was tending his sheep on the desert very close to Mount Sinai. Suddenly, he looked up and saw something really amazing! It was a bush on fire, but the bush did not burn up! What are the odds? "That is something really intriguing, I will go up there and see this wonderful sight. Why is it the bush does not burn up and turns into ashes?", he thought to himself.

So up he went, and as he got closer to the burning bush, God spoke to him:

"Moses, Moses. Take off your sandals, for the place you stand is Holy ground". Moses obeyed immediately!

God called him up the Sinai, showed His power and sent him on a very important mission: to deliver His people from Egypt, so they could all live happily in a new land, where there was plenty of milk and honey. Yummy!  

God also promised that once they left Egypt, their neighbours would give them many gifts, like silver and gold jewelry, as well as clothes.

Important points to explore:

  • When we cry out to God, He sees, hears and comes down. He is there for us whenever we need Him
  • God has very important tasks for each one of us: to obey our parents, to respect people, to be nice to others, to talk about Jesus to our friends, to pray for those who are in need... Will you listen and do what He is asking of you?
  • Take off you sandals, everything that impedes you from  being the child God wants you to be. Lies, anger, disobedience, dishonesty, bad behavior, laziness, bad thoughts, etc.
