about the time that President Bush and Vice-President Cheney were walking through an airport when they saw someone who looked just like Moses. President Bush walked up to him and said, “Excuse me, sir, but are you Moses?” The man didn’t respond, just stared off into space. The President asked him again, “Excuse me, but are you Moses?” And again, the man said nothing, just stared off into space. Finally, Vice-President Cheney walked up to him and said, “Excuse me, but the President asked you if you are Moses. Are you?” The man looked at Cheney and said, “Yes, I am.” Frustrated, the Vice-President said, “Well, why didn’t you answer President Bush when He asked you?” Moses said, “Hey, give me a break- the last time I talked with a bush, I was stuck in the dessert for 40 years!”
In God’s Word we read of several ways that the Lord chose to speak to people. In speaking to many of the prophets He chose to work through visions.
In speaking to Balaam He used a donkey.
And in Exodus 3 He chose to speak to Moses through a burning bush.
and that what I would like to read about this morning
so if you have your bibles with you today
Turn with me, if you would, to the second book of the Bible, Exodus chapter 3
It’s quite an interesting story and I want us to read together this morning.
1 Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb. 2 And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed. 3 And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt. 4 And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I. 5And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground. 6 Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God.
