Who is\nMoses?\n\n\n\nMoses is one\nof Israel\u2019s most famous prophets and the only person to have ever heard the\naudible voice of God through a burning bush. \nMoses was a man chosen by God to lead the Israelites out of 400 years of\nslavery under Egyptian rule. \n\n\n\nWhen we\nthink of the prophet Moses, we often think of a strong young man that had a lot\nof courage. However, Moses was called by\nGod at the age of 80. Moses was no\nordinary man because he was also raised by an Egyptian princess. \n\n\n\nWhen Moses\nwas born, his mother put him into a basket and allowed it to float down the Nile\nriver. She left it in the hands of God for his fate. An Egyptian princess found the basket along\nthe riverbank and found a baby inside. \nShe decided to adopt Moses as her own and raise him in the palace along\nwith the entire kingdom. \n\n\n\nGrowing up, Moses receive his education from the Egyptians. He learned the customs of Egypt. However, he later found out the truth of his true lineage. He was told that he was a Hebrew. He came from Israeli blood. Moses was truly not Egyptian, but rather a Hebrew. \n\n\n\nWhen Moses\nfound out that he was a Hebrew, he no longer wanted to live amongst the\nEgyptian people. He instead wanted to live with his fellow brothers and sisters\nthat were suffering under Egyptian rule in slavery. However, God had a different plan for his\nlife. \n\n\n\nGod was\ngoing to use Moses to free his chosen Jewish people. The Lord would go on to tall Moses to free\nhis people from slavery. After 400 years\nof captivity, the Lord God decided that it was time to let the people go. \n\n\n\nMoses would go on to receive the 10 commandments from God and give them to the people to follow. These writings were on stone tablets and written by the hand of God himself. Moses is the author of the Torah. This makes Moses the most adored and respected prophet that ever lived. Moses is an important prophet in Christianity and Islam as well. \n\n\n\nMoses lived\nduring a time where there was an Egyptian pharaoh ruling over all the\nland. He ruled that the Israeli people\nwould be the slaves of Egypt. \n\n\n\nWhen Moses was in his 40\u2019s, he was a prince in Egypt. One day he came across a soldier that was beating Jewish slaves. Moses had mercy on these slaves and killed the soldier that was beating them. \n\n\n\nThe next\ntime when Moses saw these two men, he told them to work. They told him to please not kill them as he\ndid his Egyptian soldier. Moses got\nscared because of this. He didn\u2019t want\nanyone to know what he had done. He\ndecided to flee into the wilderness in order to escape punishment from Egypt\nfor killing one of their own. He stayed\nin the wilderness for 40 years and then resurfaced again in his 80\u2019s. \n\n\n\nHowever, God\nhad a different plan for his life. He would go on to tell Moses that he should return\nto Egypt to free the people of Israel. Moses was a man that had a speech impairment. He didn\u2019t think that he could stand before\npharaoh and ask for anything. However,\nGod told him that he would send his brother Aaron to help him speak.\n\n\n\nThe Holy Bible tells us that Moses asked pharaoh 10 times to free the people of Israel, but he refused. However, on the 10th try, pharaoh finally told him to take the Israeli people and go. Each of the 10 times that Moses stood before pharaoh, he told pharaoh that he would receive a plague each time that he refused his request. The plagues were often full of sickness, death, disease, blood in the water and his staff turning into a snake. \n\n\n\nWhen Moses\nfinally took the Jewish people out of Egypt, he came across a sea known as the\nred sea. There was no way that Moses could cross the red sea without divine\nintervention. Moses held his staff over\nthe sea, and it parted for the Israeli people. \n\n\n\n\nHowever,\npharaoh finally realized that he had let all the slaves go in his kingdom. He\nwas not happy with this decision. He finally decided to go after the Jewish\npeople again so that he can make them slaves. \nHe watched the Jewish people cross through the red sea because it was\nparted when Moses raised his staff over it.\n\n\n\nWhen the\nEgyptians tried to cross through the red sea, the red sea caved in on them and all\nthe Egyptian army that was chasing the Jewish people drowned in the red\nsea. \n\n\n\nAfter crossing the red sea, the people settled in a place called Mount Sanai. It was at Mount Sanai that Moses received the 10 commandments. \n\n\n\nHow Old\nwas Moses When He Died?\n\n\n\nMoses was\n120 years old when he died. Please read Deuteronomy\n34:7 in the Old Testament for more information. \n\n\n\n\nWhen Was\nMoses Born?\n\n\n\nAmram and\nJochebed were the parents of Moses. He was born in the tribe of Levi. This is\none of the 12 tribes of Israel. He was\nborn around 1571 BCE. \n\n\n\nMoses\nParting the Red Sea\n\n\n\nThis was an\namazing encounter between God and his people. \nWhen Moses put his staff over the Red Sea, it parted for the Israeli\npeople to walk through safely. The Israelites\nwere not harmed by the sea as they crossed. However, when the Egyptians tried\nto cross the red sea, they drowned as the sea waters caved in on them. \n\n\n\nMoses and\nthe Burning Bush\n\n\n\nIn the book\nof Exodus in the Old Testament, God spoke to Moses from a Burning Bush. It is said that the bush was on fire, but did\nnot get burned up. The bush was located\non Mount Horeb.\n\n\n\nThe story of\nMoses and the burning bush tells us that Moses was approaching the burning bush\nand saw and angel in the bush. He then\nheard a voice telling him to take off his sandals because he was standing on holy\nground. \n\n\n\nThe voice\nfrom the bush begins to speak to Moses and it tell him that his name is Yahweh\nand that he is the God of Abraham. He is\nalso the God of Isaac and Jacob. These\nmen were chosen by God to have a Jewish nation born after them that would be\nthe \u201capple of God\u2019s eye\u201d. \n\n\n\nYahweh tells\nMoses that he is going to lead his people Israel into the promised land. He\ntold Moses also that he was to tell the priests this information. \n\n\n\nSome\nMiracles Produced by Moses:\n\n\n\nTurns his staff into a snake. He turned water into blood.\n\n\n\nThe story of Moses is one that most people love because it means freedom for the Israeli people. If you read the Old Testament and see how the people of Israel were enslaved and then set free by God, it allows you to have a feeling that allows you to see how much God loves you in the same manner. As Christians, Jesus gives us the same kind of love and shows us that we receive salvation through him. \n\n\n\nMoses in the\nbible is a man that didn\u2019t know why God chose him to lead Yahweh\u2019s people out\nof slavery. Moses tried to talk God out\nof it by telling him that he was slow in his speech. However, God told him that\nhe was calling him to do this and would have his brother Aaron help him. This shows that God doesn\u2019t make mistakes. \n\n\n\nThe Lord\nwill often call those that are most unlikely to serve him to complete a task. This is something that happens time and time\nagain. \n\n\n\nWho is Moses\nBrother?\n\n\n\nMoses had a\nbrother by the name of Aaron. God chose\nAaron to help Moses speak to pharaoh because Moses had a speech impairment. The\ntwo would go on to serve God and the Jewish people. \n\n\n\nAaron was also\nthe founder of the Israeli priesthood. \n\n\n\nHow Did Moses\nDie?\n\n\n\nMoses died\nof natural causes at the age of 120. He\nwas told by God that he could see the promised land, but not cross into it. \n\n\n\nMoses and\nthe Ten Commandments\n\n\n\nThe ten\ncommandments were laws given to the chosen people of God. These ten commandments would separate them\nfrom the rest of the world. \n\n\n\nGod called Moses up to the top of a mountain. He stayed there and God wrote with his hands-on stone the 10 commandments in which his people must obey and live by.\n\n\n\nThe mountain\nserved as a place where Moses would stay to receive many laws, rules and\nregulations by God. He would eventually\ngo up to stay there for 40 days and 40 nights. The ten commandments were\nwritten so that people could live a holy and righteous life. \n\n\n\nWho Was Moses\nFather?\n\n\n\nThe father\nof Moses was a man by the name of Amram.
