  • The Holy Mountain...miracle nation pt 26

    In the third month, when the children of Israel were gone forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day came they into the wilderness of Sinai. For they were departed from Rephidim, and were come to the desert of Sinai, and had pitched in the wilderness; and there Israel camped before the mount. And Moses went up unto God, and the Lord called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel; Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare...

    Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim. And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek: to morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in mine hand. So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill. And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed: and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed. But Moses hands were heavy; and they took...

    And all the congregation of the children of Israel journeyed from the wilderness of Sin, after their journeys, according to the commandment of the Lord, and pitched in Rephidim: and there was no water for the people to drink. Wherefore the people did chide with Moses, and said, Give us water that we may drink. And Moses said unto them, Why chide ye with me? wherefore do ye tempt the Lord? And the people thirsted there for water; and the people murmured against Moses, and said, Wherefore is this that thou hast brought us up out of Egypt, to kill...

The Lord is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father’s God, and I will exalt him.

And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the Lord: And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name Jehovah was I not known to them.

And the children of Israel were fruitful, and increased abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty; and the land was filled with them. Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph.(Exodus 1:6-8)Genesis tells the story of how the children of Israel ended up in Egypt, in a position of favor with the Pharaoh, and how they thrived there. One of Joseph’s last requests before he died, was that the children of Israel should gather his bones with them, when they left Egypt. Joseph knew...

    What is the validity of history found in the Bible? Is it fact or fiction? What does the hard evidence really have to say about the foundational story of the Old Testament: the Exodus out of Egypt? An in-depth investigation by documentary filmmaker Timothy Mahoney searches for answers to these questions amid startling new finds that may change traditional views of history and the Bible. Filmmaker Timothy Mahoney begins with the question, Is the Bible just a myth, or did the archaeologists get it wrong? He decides to tackle this issue with a deliberate scientific approach. After examining the details...

    Gotquestions.org ^ | none listed | none credited
    Question: "What was Nehushtan?" Answer: The word Nehushtan occurs one time in the Bible, in 2 Kings 18:4, He [Hezekiah] removed the high places and broke the pillars and cut down the Asherah. And he broke in pieces the bronze serpent that Moses had made, for until those days the people of Israel had made offerings to it (it was called Nehushtan). Second Kings 18:4 points back to Numbers 21:69, Then the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people, so that many people of Israel died. And the people came to Moses and said, We...

    Egypts National Center for Translation has just released an Arabic translation of the Torah. To be precise, they converted Rav Saadia Gaons 10th century translation of the Torah to Judeo-Arabic into Arabic itself. (Judeo-Arabic is mostly Arabic with Hebrew letters.) The Egyptian scholars who published the book emphasize that R Saadia was born in Egypt (in Fayoum, identified by R Saadia himself as the Biblical Pitom), and that his philosophy and translations were heavily influenced by Islam. They even claim that he borrows Quranic texts in some of his translations to Arabic. They dont emphasize that R Saadia moved to...

    Dear Dave, Yesterday evening you suggested I watch The Prince of Egypt, in your opinion the best movie inspired by the book of Exodus. Although I didnt have time then, I got to it this morning. It impressed me mightily. The top 5 reasons why I loved it and why everybody who reads this article should watch it if they havent already are: 1. Moses never doubts God, only himself. This is a vital lesson for believers of all kinds; you can doubt your own abilities, but never doubt the most high God, who created everything, and without...

    Today is the 7th of the month of Adar on the Jewish (Torah) calendar. It is the birthday of Moshe Rabbeinu (Moses) and also the anniversary of his passing. On this exact day four years ago, Hosni Mubarak, then President of Egypt, was forced to resign. What made the already incredible timing extra significant, is that every few years there are 2 months of Adar (a Biblical "leap year") and Moshe/Moses was actually born on the 7th of the first month of Adar. Four years ago, that was the case, it was the 7th of Adar I. The reverberations of...

    The Transfiguration: The Bridge between Epiphany and Lent (Mark 9:2-9) Today is the Festival of the Transfiguration of Our Lord, remembering that day when our Lord Jesus Christ was transfigured, that is, his appearance was changed, up on a mountain. This was a key event in our Lords life, and it marked a turning point, a pivot point, in his ministry. So, likewise, does this festival mark a turning point, a pivot point, in the church year calendar. Transfiguration comes at the end of the Epiphany season, just a few days before the beginning of Lent. The church year mirrors...

    President Obama, during his National Prayer Breakfast speech, Thursday: "No god condones terror. No grievance justifies the taking of innocent lives or the oppression of those who are weaker of fewer in number." All people at all times and locations have the right to defend themselves from terror. Despite Obama's words that have clearly angered people, we can see the following as an example: Christians within the confines of the Byzantine Empire had a right to defend themselves from Muslims who terrorized them, but we all know that Pope Urban II could in no way possible know that anyone who...

    It would have given great offense, had anyone known it was there. For the first half of the 20th century, an eight-foot-tall marble statue of the Prophet Muhammad overlooked Madison Square Park from the rooftop of the Appellate Division Courthouse at Madison Avenue and 25th Street. Sixty years ago, the statue was quietly removed, in an episode that now looks, in light of recent events in Paris, like the model of tact, restraint and diplomacy. What had spared the sensibilities of Muslim passers-by from 1902 to 1955 was that Muhammad, by the Mexican sculptor Charles Albert Lopez, was among nine...

    THE CALL OF MOSES There is a great deal more room given in Scripture to the _call_ of men to God's work than there is to their _end_. For instance, we don't know where Isaiah died, or how he died, but we know a great deal about the call God gave him, when he saw God on high and lifted up on His throne. I suppose that it is true to-day that hundreds of young men and women who are listening for a call and really want to know what their life's mission is, perhaps find it the greatest problem...

    American Thinker ^ | 12/17/2014 | By Arnold Cusmariu
    English director Ridley Scott is evidently fond of what Hollywood calls “period pieces.” He has had little trouble getting funding for such unlike other directors, no doubt because of his track record with Alien (1979), the cult classic Blade Runner (1982), and Thelma and Louise (1991). The suits felt sufficiently rewarded after they let Scott get into the time machine to make Gladiator (2000), Kingdom of Heaven (2005), and Robin Hood (2010) to let him try again. However, for Exodus: Gods and Kings, now playing at your neighborhood multiplex, Scott had to travel quite a bit farther back. If...

By Josh CraddockJoel Edgerton (left) and Christian Bale in Exodus: Gods and KingsBringing familiar Bible stories to the silver screen is a risky enterprise. A director must avoid mere rehash of previous tellings (think Cecil B. DeMilles opus The Ten Commandments) but without allowing artistic license to veer off into offensive parody. Thats a difficult task when some 3.8 billion people believe the source matter is sacred revelation from God himself. In...

    Rupert Murdoch took to Twitter tonight to defend 20th Century Fox's new movie "Exodus" that casts Christian Bale as Moses, and a variety of white actors as Egyptians. Theres been scuffle on Twitter ever since Murdoch made his observations. And a lot of this stems from a quote director Ridley Scott gave Variety about why he didnt use Egyptian or Arab actors for the film. He said: "I cant mount a film of this budget, where I have to rely on tax rebates in Spain, and say that my lead actor is Mohammad so-and-so from such-and-such," Scott says. "I'm just...

    Watching Exodus: Gods and Kings stirred me to read the Biblical account once again. Ive read it many, many times in Exodus chapters 2-14. Reading the story with the Ridley Scott movie fresh in my mind illuminated a few things. First, that Scotts version of the account, while weak on the theological aspects of the characters, didnt do a half bad job at the Biblical story elements (and ludicrously bad at being historically accurate). But thats not what I want to focus on. If I were to make an Exodus movie, Id take a different tack than everyone else. Everyone...

    In 2014, Hollywood has embraced telling religious stories on film. No longer, it seems, are religious viewers denied the opportunity to see biblical stories onscreen. In February of this year, Roma Downey and Mark Burnett brought Jesus story to the big screen in Son of God. In March, director Darren Aronofsky presented Noah , which in spite of its narrative flaws worked as an epic tale. This weekend, Ridley Scott the newest high-profile director to embrace this trend offers up a version of Moses story in the new drama Exodus: Gods and Kings.

    In the new movie,Exodus,director Ridley Scott decided to directly contravene possibly the most basic tenet of Judaism: that God is One and cannot be anthropomorphized. In the famous scene in which Moses stands near the burning bush and hears God talking to him, Scott decided to take liberties with the Biblical text and have an eleven-year-old boy, called Malak, stand near the bush and articulate the voice of God.

    Christian writer Brian Godawa dismissed recent comments made by actor Christian Bale characterizing the biblical Moses as "schizophrenic" and "barbaric" as ignorant bigotry. Bale plays Moses in the upcoming Ridley Scott film, "Exodus: Gods and Kings," which uses hi-tech visual effects to tell the story of how Moses frees 400,000 slaves from Egypt. It is slated for release in December. The Christian Post reported Sunday that Bale told a group of international reporters at the Four Seasons hotel in Los Angeles last month that Moses was mentally unbalanced.

See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any...

    To me belongeth vengeance and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste. For the Lord shall judge his people, and repent himself for his servants, when he seeth that their power is gone, and there is none shut up, or left.(Deuteronomy 32:35-36)We are at the last stanza of the song which God gave Moses to teach the children of Israel their entire future history, from the blessings of the promised land, through their apostasy and eventual expulsion from the Land...
  • The Day Of Vengeance Nears ...Song of Moses pt 12

    Is not this laid up in store with me, and sealed up among my treasures? To me belongeth vengeance and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste. ( Deuteronomy 32:33-34)We have arrived at the last stanza of the Song of Moses. It is thoroughly apocalyptic. The LORD is upright, perfect and generous in all of his dealings, abundantly blessing the Nation Israel, which He created and treated as a Son, teaching him and lavishing him with blessings, privilege, and deliverances....
  • The LORD Yearns For Israel...Song of Moses pt 11

    I said, I would scatter them into corners, I would make the remembrance of them to cease from among men: Were it not that I feared the wrath of the enemy, lest their adversaries should behave themselves strangely, and lest they should say, Our hand is high, and the Lord hath not done all this. For they are a nation void of counsel, neither is there any understanding in them. (Deuteronomy 32:26-30)In this stanza of the Song of Moses, the LORD assures that He would not totally obliterate His prodigal and rebellious son; partly because He knows that...
  • The Wrath Of God...Song of Moses pt 10

    This is a poetic description of the evils which would be heaped upon Israel in her apostasy and rebellion, when the time of Gods long forbearance had come to an end, and there was no repentance on the part of the chosen people. God taught the people of Israel to sing of the coming wrath, it was part of the national catechism, the Song of Moses, the warning of future apostasy and wrath. Other parts of Deuteronomy and Leviticus give a more detailed description of the terrors which were to come upon the nation, and which have literally and minutely...
  • The Rise Of the "non People"...Song of Moses pt 9

    And he said, I will hide my face from them, I will see what their end shall be: for they are a very froward generation, children in whom is no faith. They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.( Deuteronomy 32:20-21)The most devastating calamity to befall the Jewish people, was predicted centuries before it happened by Moses, in the song God told Moses...
  • Divine Rejection and Punishment...Song of Moses pt 8

    And when the Lord saw it, he abhorred them, because of the provoking of his sons, and of his daughters. They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation. For a fire is kindled in mine anger, and shall burn unto the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her increase, and set on fire the foundations of the mountains. I will...
  • What The LORD Did For Israel...song of Moses pt 5

    He found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye. As an eagle stirreth up her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings: So the Lord alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him. He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey out of the rock, and oil out...
