- There was a famine in the land of Canaan

- Plenty in Egypt

- Water & Pasture for your flocks

- Come & settle

Genesis 47:4-6KJV

4 They said moreover unto Pharaoh, For to sojourn in the land are we come; for thy servants have no pasture for their flocks; for the famine is sore in the land of Canaan: now therefore, we pray thee, let thy servants dwell in the land of Goshen. 5 And Pharaoh spake unto Joseph, saying, Thy father and thy brethren are come unto thee: 6 The land of Egypt is before thee; in the best of the land make thy father and brethren to dwell; in the land of Goshen let them dwell: and if thou knowest any men of activity among them, then make them rulers over my cattle.

- The world attracts & bids us come

- It is proud self-assured with plenty of action & goods

Exodus 1:7KJV

7 And the children of Israel were fruitful, and increased abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty; and the land was filled with them.

❶ Sorrowful Setting

1. Friendless

Exodus 1:6KJV

6 And Joseph died, and all his brethren, and all that generation.

- If we abide in the Egypt of this world we soon part with the fellowship of Jesus

- No longer in the company of His brethren

Exodus 2:15KJV

15 Now when Pharaoh heard this thing, he sought to slay Moses. But Moses fled from the face of Pharaoh, and dwelt in the land of Midian: and he sat down by a well.

- The arm of flesh failed them when Moses fled

2. Faithless

Exodus 5:21KJV

21 And they said unto them, The LORD look upon you, and judge; because ye have made our savour to be abhorred in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of his servants, to put a sword in their hand to slay us.

- Word given that they would b set free

- Only bitter unbelief

- Truth is freedom from slavery

Galatians 5:1KJV

1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

- Faith is needed — Do you believe?

3. Futileness

Exodus 6:9KJV

9 And Moses spake so unto the children of Israel: but they hearkened not unto Moses for anguish of spirit, and for cruel bondage.

- Life is futile without faith

- Without faith there is no true friend

- I’ve seen & heard the things you tried

I’ve seen & heard the things you want

I’ve seen & heard the things you have

❷ Spiteful Service

1. Serving an enemy

Exodus 1:11KJV

11 Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities, Pithom and Raamses.

- One out for it’s own gain

- Seeking the destruction of their slaves

- As long as we are out of the kingdom of God we will be serving a enemy

2. Served With Severity

Exodus 5:5-14KJV

5 And Pharaoh said, Behold, the people of the land now are many, and ye make them rest from their burdens. 6 And Pharaoh commanded the same day the taskmasters of the people, and their officers, saying, 7 Ye shall no more give the people straw to make brick, as heretofore: let them go and gather straw for themselves. 8 And the tale of the bricks, which they did make heretofore, ye shall lay upon them; ye shall not diminish ought thereof: for they be idle; therefore they cry, saying, Let us go and sacrifice to our God. 9 Let there more work be laid upon the men, that they may labour therein; and let them not regard vain words.
