The Superiority of Christ 9
By Rev Robert Ampiah-Kwofi
Moses actually in his lifetime faced a lot of opposition and rejection from the Israelites.
At forty years of age he visited the Israelites, and found an Egyptian oppressing one of them.
He killed the Egyptian and rescued the Israelite.
Acts 7:24 NKJV
“And seeing one of them suffer wrong, he defended and avenged him who was oppressed, and struck down the Egyptian.”
Moses thought the Israelites would understand that God had chosen him to deliver them from slavery.
Acts 7:25 NKJV
“For he supposed that his brethren would have understood that God would deliver them by his hand, but they did not understand.”
The next day Moses tried to make peace between two Israelites who were fighting.
Acts 7:26 NIV
“The next day Moses came upon two Israelites who were fighting. He tried to reconcile them by saying, ‘Men, you are brothers; why do you want to hurt each other?’”
He received the shock of his life.
Acts 7:27-28 NIV
“But the man who was mistreating the other pushed Moses aside and said, ‘Who made you ruler and judge over us? Are you thinking of killing me as you killed the Egyptian yesterday?’”
His own Israelite brethren reported him to Pharaoh for killing the Egyptian.
Exodus 2:15 NIV
“When Pharaoh heard of this, he tried to kill Moses, but Moses fled from Pharaoh and went to live in Midian, where he sat down by a well.”
After 40 years, God appeared to Moses and commissioned him to deliver the Israelites.
Moses was more afraid of his own people than even Pharaoh.
Exodus 4:1 NIV
“Moses answered, “What if they do not believe me or listen to me and say, ‘The Lord did not appear to you’?”
All the first three signs God gave to Moses were to convince the Israelites.
The superior Christ was the source, and the power behind the miracles of Moses.
May the grace of God sustain you in your life’s mission.
May God grant you major breakthroughs in all your business, in Jesus’ name.
