WHAT WAS GOD TEACHING THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL? AND WHAT IS HE TEACHING US? by Rev. Sharon Wooten

BACKGROUND:

  • Had been in bondage over 400 years with no recorded voice of God speaking to them that we know of since Joseph until Moses.
  • Life was hard, may have taken on an attitude of, “Where is God?” Why is He not delivering us?
  • God comes on the scene as deliverer. GOD’S FOCUS IS ALWAYS RELATIONSHIP.
  • Also 400 plus years between Malachi and Jesus coming to the Jewish people. God coming again as deliverer but this time the ultimate deliverance from the power of sin and darkness. Read Luke 4:14-24
  • For one moment that religious Shabbat service was different because I believe they heard God within Jesus’ voice. They had heard God’s voice after over 400 years! But they fell back into their old traditional unbelieving thinking. Their tradition was louder than their faith to believe.

Looking back over the last several weeks; what can we identify that God was teaching the children of Israel that God is teaching us now?
