- So Moses would be fascinated and curious
- So Moses would come closer
- So Moses would see God’s ability to produce signs and wonders
b. In this instance, I don’t think the fire symbolized something as much as it was something—a manifestation of the presence of God the Father and the Holy Spirit. The Angel of the Lord appeared to Moses. The entire godhead was represented.
- Exodus 3:2 says, “The angel of the Lord appeared to him in a blazing fire…” and verse 4 says, “And God called to him from the midst of the bush…”
- Hebrews 12:28-29 says, “…our God is a consuming fire.”
- Executing judgment Isaiah 66:15
- Testing and refining Zechariah 13:9
- The baptism of the Holy Spirit Acts 2:1-4
c. God told Moses to remove his sandals because the place he was standing was holy ground. Exodus 3:5
I’m wondering why God said it was holy ground. Was it because God appeared there? Was it holy ground from then on, or just right then?
d. The Son of God
b. God’s relationship with His people—
- He desires our worship and recognition of His holiness.
- He remembers us.
- He always has a plan.
- He watches us and sees us.
- He cares for us and loves us.
- He shows mercy.
- He shows patience.
- He knows what it takes to prepare us for our calling.
- He will make a way.
- He wants to set us free.
- He is faithful.
