New International Version (NIV)
1 Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the far side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. 2 There the angel of the LORD appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up. 3 So Moses thought, I will go over and see this strange sightwhy the bush does not burn up.
4 When the LORD saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, Moses! Moses!
And Moses said, Here I am.
5 Do not come any closer, God said. Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground. 6 Then he said, I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob. At this, Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God.
7 The LORD said, I have indeed seen the misery of my people in Egypt. I have heard them crying out because of their slave drivers, and I am concerned about their suffering. 8 So I have come down to rescue them from the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land into a good and spacious land, a land flowing with milk and honeythe home of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites. 9 And now the cry of the Israelites has reached me, and I have seen the way the Egyptians are oppressing them. 10 So now, go. I am sending you to Pharaoh to bring my people the Israelites out of Egypt.
11 But Moses said to God, Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?
12 And God said, I will be with you. And this will be the sign to you that it is I who have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you will worship God on this mountain.
13 Moses said to God, Suppose I go to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they ask me, What is his name? Then what shall I tell them?
14 God said to Moses, I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: I AM has sent me to you.
15 God also said to Moses, Say to the Israelites, The LORD, the God of your fathersthe God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacobhas sent me to you.
This is my name forever,
the name you shall call me
from generation to generation.
16 Go, assemble the elders of Israel and say to them, The LORD, the God of your fathersthe God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacobappeared to me and said: I have watched over you and have seen what has been done to you in Egypt. 17 And I have promised to bring you up out of your misery in Egypt into the land of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusitesa land flowing with milk and honey.
18 The elders of Israel will listen to you. Then you and the elders are to go to the king of Egypt and say to him, The LORD, the God of the Hebrews, has met with us. Let us take a three-day journey into the wilderness to offer sacrifices to the LORD our God. 19 But I know that the king of Egypt will not let you go unless a mighty hand compels him. 20 So I will stretch out my hand and strike the Egyptians with all the wonders that I will perform among them. After that, he will let you go.
21 And I will make the Egyptians favorably disposed toward this people, so that when you leave you will not go empty-handed. 22 Every woman is to ask her neighbor and any woman living in her house for articles of silver and gold and for clothing, which you will put on your sons and daughters. And so you will plunder the Egyptians.
We Pray For The Swift and Sure Coming of Messiah,
Blessed Be He,
To Establish His Kingdom,
and Make All Things Right.
Blessings To All Who Visit This Garden of Prayer.

Thank you for your prayer, and AMEN!
This is one of the most enigmatic passages:
2 There the angel of the LORD appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush.
God called to him from within the bush, Moses! Moses!
Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God.
So which was it? God, or the Angel of the Lord? This 'Angel of the Lord' is a mystery... He is used interchangeably with God in the OT... He accepts worship, which no other angel will do... Who can this be, hmmm?
Hope you (and all y'all reading here) have a great day!
AMEN ... Praying for the Peace of Jerusalem, for our brothers and sisters throughout the nations, for our country.
Shakespeare wrote in his writings ...loosely quoted here ‘man but thinly knows himself’. So true, so true. God knows us through and through. The state of the world today is teaching and forcing secularism every where we are, and dissing Christianity. God help America, God help the World in His grace, love, mercy and goodness in Jesus name, amen. God bless Israel those seeking to know Him, Jerusalem, the lost, the brokenhearted, the persecuted believers, the captives, and forgive our sins, in Jesus name we pray. Amen.
Adding my prayers for the Peace of Jerusalem, our FRiends in need and our beloved Nation.
Lifting up all of God’s people in prayer, left that other site.
May Israel remember God’s grace in His deliverance from as we all rejoice in His Amazing Grace.
I join in prayer for Israel, Jerusalem and all God’s beloved.
