The Israelites are oppressed. They are slaves in a foreign land. This is God’s promise to Abraham. But Pharaoh has held them captive and will not release them without authority from a higher deity. They will be slaves if no one comes to the rescue. So Moses is born and in the plan of God Pharaoh’s daughter acts as his mother. One day as Moses was taking care of the flock of his father-in –law, Jethro, the Lord appeared to Moses in the form of a burning bush. Though the bush was on fire it did not burn up. Moses drew closer to see this strange sight but the Lord called to Him from within the bush, Moses! Moses! He was sending him to take his people out of misery. Moses goes to Pharaoh and he says LET MY PEOPLE GO! If I were to speak to you this day I would say: the devil has oppressed you for long and God is saying to him-let my child go! The Lord has freed you from the enemy’s chains but so should you know the devil is still looking for you because he does not love holiness and the Lord seeing your oppression has forgotten but he says to the enemy; LET MY PEOPLE GO!
