Choosing a wife from this nation would go against God’s commands.  If Isaac were to leave the land, he would be leaving the land God promised to Abraham and his descendants   Isaac and Rebekah: God at Work  Abraham sends his servant back to find a wife for Isaac, they pray for God’s direction; that He will lead them to the woman of God’s choosing.  God leads the servant to Rebekah who willingly agrees to go back with the servant and become Isaac’s wife.  Providence is the way God is directing His story:  Moving it forward into tomorrow and creating His beautifully planned masterpiece.  Coincidence:  Every once in a while we hear a whisper from the wings that goes something like this: “You’ve turned up in the right place at the right time. You’re doing fine. Don’t ever think that you’ve been forgotten.” -- Frederick Buechner  Beer-lahai-roi: “God sees me”  Isaac has a firm belief that God sees him and will provide. From Isaac to Jacob  Isaac and Rebekah have twins:  Esau: first born, “skillful hunter…an outdoorsman.” (Gen. 25:27)  Jacob: smooth skinned, “quiet temperament preferring to stay at home.” (Gen. 25:27)  Jacob loved Esau for wild game he brought home.  Isaac loved Jacob. (Gen. 25:28) The Birthright and The Blessing  Birthright: Leadership of the family  Blessing: Double portion of the inheritance  These both typically go to the first born Jacob: The Hustler  Hustles his brother out his birthright. (Gen. 25: 27-34)  Hustles his father into giving him the blessing (Gen. 27)  Attempts to hustle God into being his God. (Gen. 28:20-21)  Faith: living life without scheming  Yet, while Jacob is faithless, God remains faithful to him and to His promise. Jacob: The Hustled  Laban tricks Jacob into marrying Leah & Rachel, plus more years of labor  After 20 years of service to Laban, God calls Jacob to head back home, reveals that his success has come because God has seen how he has been treated.  God continues to be gracious to Jacob. Jacob’s Children  Reuben (Leah)  Simeon (Leah)  Levi (Leah)  Judah (Leah) - Birthright  Dan (Bilhah)  Naphtali (Bilhah)  Gad (Zilpah)  Ashur (Zilpah)  Issachar (Leah)  Zebulon (Leah)  Joseph (Rachel) – Blessing  Benjamin (Rachel) Jacob: The Grabber  Jacob is heading home, finds out Esau and 400 men are coming, he’s terrified that Esau wants to kill him.  Jacob wrestles with God until finally God breaks him  In this weakness, he is now a different character.  He is no longer Jacob; he is Israel  Brokenness precedes usefulness  As a broken man, Jacob is now completely dependent on God.  It is in and through our weakness that we are most useable to God.  Jacob meets Esau; doesn’t go with him because of fear  Instead of going with Esau, Jacob moves outside the town of Shechem (one of the worst towns in Canaan) Jacob: The Grabbed  God calls Jacob out of Schechem to return to Bethel.  Jacob tells family to put away all idols, buries them under a tree  Jacob is “grabbed” by God; the change that began earlier with his new name leads to a lasting impact. From Jacob to Joseph  Jacob favored Joseph over all his other children.  Gave him a coat of many colors - a beautiful robe. (Gen. 37)  Brothers are jealous, plot to kill him; sell him into slavery instead.  Joseph sold to Potiphar - An official of Pharaoh; head of the prison body guard. Joseph’s Life in Egypt: A Summary  Went to prison, Potiphar’s wife falsely accused him. In prison Joseph succeeded because the Lord was with him.  Released from prison by interpreting Pharaoh’s dreams  Pharaoh put Joseph in charge of the whole land of Egypt  He stored up food for seven years  Saved Egypt from a famine that lasted seven years.  Brothers came to Egypt and bowed before him to ask for food  Family is reunited in Egypt, given land appropriate for shepherds and farmers  Years later, Jacob dies and is buried in Canaan  “You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people.” Gen. 50:20  The sinfulness of human beings cannot hinder:  God restoring His good creation  His good purposes for your life; nothing is wasted Exodus 1-18: Exit from Egypt The book of Exodus can be divided into two sections Exodus: An Overview  Section 1: Exodus 1-18  This section chronicles the Israelites exodus from Egypt  Section 2: Exodus 19-40  This section covers God’s covenant with Israel at Mount Sinai  God redeems Israel to display His name before the nations How Did We Get Here: From Genesis to Exodus  People:  Pharaoh has no idea who Joseph is  Time:  400 years pass between the last word in Genesis to the first word in Exodus Exodus 1-18 Where the Story Resumes:  Pharaoh doesn’t know Joseph  Israelites slaves of Egyptians  Command to kill all Israelite male babies  God calling a man named Moses to rescue His people. What Are the Egyptians Doing?  Exodus 1:7  “But their descendants, the Israelites, had many children and grandchildren. In fact, they multiplied so greatly that they became extremely powerful and filled the land.”  Genesis 1:28  “Then God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth…”  Genesis 17:1-5  “I will guarantee to give you countless descendants…I will make you the father of a multitude of nations…you will be the father of many nations.”  Genesis 22:17  “I will certainly bless you. I will multiply your descendants beyond number, like the stars in the sky and the sand on the seashore. Your descendants will conquer the cities of their enemies.”  Pharaoh & Egyptians try to stop God from fulfilling promise to make Abraham/Israel a mighty nation Moses: Prince in Egypt (First 40 Years of Life)  Found by Egyptian Princess  Moses’ mom put Moses in a basket in the river, it floats down the Nile  Egyptians view Nile as source of life, worship basically everything that comes out of it  Princess recognizes child as Hebrew baby, decides to raise him as her own  Fleeing from Pharaoh for murdering an Egyptian.  Egyptian was beating up an Israelite, Moses kills him, buries him in sand  Runs to Midian to escape Egyptian penal code Moses: Shepherd in Midian (40 Years)  Meets Jethro, marries his daughter Zipporah  Meets God, called to liberate Israel from Egypt.  The Insufficiency of Moses  Moses is insecure  “What if they don’t believe me or listen to me?” (Exodus 4:1)  Moses is incompetent  “I’m not very good with words. I never have been, and I’m not now… I get tongue-tied, and my words get tangled.” (Exodus 4:10)  The Sufficiency of God  God demonstrates to Moses that he will be more than sufficient for the task that He is calling Moses to accomplish by directing his focus off of himself, and onto God Moses: Leader of the Exodus (40 Years) 1. Pharaoh hardens heart against releasing Israelites; God gives him a chance to redeem himself and Pharaoh doesn’t; God hardens Pharaoh’s heart more 2. God reveals superiority over Egyptian God’s through 10 plagues.  The plagues are more than just God’s judgment on Egypt; they are God’s dramatic means of revealing his character/power to the nations.  The key phrase: “That they/you may know that I am the LORD” (Exodus 6:7; 7:5, 17; 8:22; 10:2; 14:4, 18) 3. God establishes the Passover in the final plague. This feast is a foreshadowing of Jesus Christ (our Passover lamb) and the elements that will make up the Lord’s supper  To protect their firstborn son from the Angel of Death, the Israelites had to sacrifice a blameless lamb and paint its blood over their door posts  This points to Christ, who was the blameless lamb whose blood was shed on the cross to protect us from death Four Elements of the Ancient Passover Meal 1. Bread 2. Cup 3. Bitter Herbs 4. Lamb  The bread and cup become the two elements Christ singles out in the last supper From Egypt to the Red Sea  Exodus 14:13  “But Moses told the people, “Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the Lord rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again.”  “A healthy relationship with God is reflected in the expectation that He will act to deliver us in difficult and stressful situations.” Larry Richards At Your Red Sea:  You are exactly where God wants you to be  His presence is with, amongst, behind, and before you no matter what situation you are in  Acknowledge the difficulty, but keep your eyes on the Lord  Envision God’s surrounding presence  Take the next step  Remember to praise Him!  The Israelites sing a praise song to God for the victory He had accomplished for them Exodus 13-18: The Hard Road  The nation of Israel travels through the wilderness in order to get to Mount Sinai  Along the way, God provides  Water (turned bitter water to fresh water)  Manna (“what is it?”)  Quail  Water (from a rock)  Victory over the Amalekites  What was God up to? / Why am I on the hard road?  A path of protection  They were under God’s protection  A path of insufficiency  A path to dependence  If they were going to make it to the promised land, it was going to be through God’s providence  A path marked by God’s victory  God was the one whose name was made great through this, not the Israelites  Exodus 19-40: Arrival at Mount Sinai  The Israelites eventually arrive at Mount Sinai where God provides them with His commands and the Blueprint for a place to worship Him 10 Commandments  Duties to God 1. “No other Gods” vs. polytheism 2. “No graven images” vs. idolatry 3. “Name in vain” vs. profanity 4. “Sabbath” vs. secularism  Duties to Man 5. “Honor parents” vs. rebellion 6. “Not kill” vs. murder 7. “Not adultery” vs. adultery 8. “Not steal” vs. theft 9. “False witness” vs. lying 10. “Not covet” vs. coveting  Jesus explained, summarized, and fulfilled the law on our behalf  Our redemption was made possible not only through the death of Jesus, but through the life of Jesus.  He kept what we could not keep and at His death, exchanged our disobedience for his obedience  John 1:17  “For the law was given through Moses. Grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.”
