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!

Happy Pentecost/Shavuot 2020

29 05 2020

Dry Bones Shavuot 2020

Today Jews celebrate Shavuot, which is celebrated by Christians as Pentecost this Sunday. What is the meaning of this holiday? Jews observe it to honor the giving of the Torah and Ten Commandments on Mt. Sinai. Written by the hand of Yehovah, Moses introduced them to the people. The laws became the basic legal code of modern civilization in the Western world. Shavuot means weeks. Seven weeks were counted from Passover to the wheat harvest in Israel, followed by a Sabbath rest. Shavuot is also called “first fruits” because of the first harvest.

Christians use the Greek word Pentecost, which means fifty days after Passover. Recorded in Acts 2, it was the day that the Holy Spirit was poured out in fulfillment of Joel 2:28-32. Christians consider the 3,000 Jews filled with the Holy Spirit that day as the “first fruit” of the church.

When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. Acts 2:1-4

But Peter, standing up with the eleven, raised his voice and said to them, “Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and heed my words. For these are not drunk, as you suppose, since it is only the third hour of the day. But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel

“​And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, that I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams. And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; And they shall prophesy. I will show wonders in heaven above And signs in the earth beneath: Blood and fire and vapor of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, And the moon into blood, Before the coming of the great and awesome day of Yehovah. And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of Yehovah shall be saved. Acts 2:14-21

We pray that there is a new outpouring of the Holy Spirit in these days of great trials in the whole world. May it be the beginning of the great last days harvest of souls for the Kingdom of Yeshua, the Messiah.

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and pray for seasonal rains.
