Was the Burning Bush in Saudi Arabia?

Red Sea crossing

God spoke to Moses from a bush that burned without being consumed. Yehovah called the area “holy ground” and Moses had to remove his shoes. Where exactly did this conversation take place, geographically speaking?

“Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian. And he led the flock to the back of the desert, and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. And the Angel of Yehovah appeared to him in a flame of fire from the midst of a bush. So he looked, and behold, the bush was burning with fire, but the bush was not consumed.” Exodus 3:1-2

He was at a mountain called Horeb, which is another name for Sinai, (by the agreement of most scholars). Notice that this incident occurred when Moses was living in Midian, which is located in what today is Saudi Arabia, east of the right tongue of the Red Sea. Also note that Horeb was called “the mountain of God.” There are three reasons why this is important.

First, the “burning bush” conversation was God’s call to Moses to set His people free from Egypt and included a little noticed geographic imperative. Moses was commanded to bring the freed children of Israel to the same mountain.

So He said, “I will certainly be with you. And this shall be a sign to you that I have sent you: When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you shall serve God on this mountain.” Exodus 3:12

Secondly, the location had a more important purpose in God’s plan. That same mountain  was where God gave the Ten Commandments. I never realized that this all happened in modern Saudi Arabia. There are multiple videos on YouTube about Mt. Sinai in Saudi Arabia. This is a major change from earlier archaeology.

Thirdly,  there is an amazing prophecy in Isaiah 60 stating that the people from the same geographical area will ultimately worship Yehovah God in Jerusalem. Does this indicate the salvation of the Saudis? All the places in these two verses are in Saudi Arabia.

“The multitude of camels shall cover your land, the dromedaries of Midian and Ephah; all those from Sheba shall come; they shall bring gold and incense, and they shall proclaim the praises of Yehovah. ​​All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together to you, the rams of Nebaioth shall minister to you; they shall ascend with acceptance on My altar, and I will glorify the house of My glory.” Isaiah 60:6-7

Wow! They will be accepted at Yehovah’s altar in Jerusalem! Have you ever seen this? If this is a future prophecy, it indicates they will accept Yeshua as Messiah and Son of God, and join with Israel. What an amazing prophecy.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem!
