Today Pastor Brink continues our seasonal series. It’s called Christmas Is a War Story.” Today we will see how, when God makes a move, so does the devil. But, thankfully, we will also see that, when the devil makes a move, so does God. And God is smarter and stronger than the devil; God will fulfill his purposes and plans. We will examine how this works out in salvation history, in the life of Moses and Jesus, but we will also learn about the battle for our own hearts and lives.

Bible Verse: Exodus 1:22 – 2:10 and Matthew 2:13-18

This morning Pastor Brink begins a sermon series on our summer theme, “Meet Me at the Mountain.” There were lots of mountains in the lands where the Bible stories took place, and this summer we will study some of the “mountain-top experiences” had by ancient saints. We start today at Mt. Sinai, where God made Israel his chosen people and where he gave them The Law. It was a scary, scary place; but it’s a place we must visit too. Because it fuels our search for a Savior and leads us to Jesus.

Bible Reading: Exodus 19:16-20a, 20:1-17, and 20:18-19

Pastor Brink started last week a summer teaching series called “God Will Make a Way!” The Stories all have something to do with stormy waters, but they also show us how God has a habit of being powerfully with us through the storms and trials that we face. Today’s story is about the crossing of the Red Sea, the most famous and identity-forming salvation story in the Old Testament.

The Way of Salvation – Powerpoint

Message: Exodus 14

Exodus 14

14 Then the Lord said to Moses, 2 “Tell the Israelites to turn back and encamp near Pi Hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea. They are to encamp by the sea, directly opposite Baal Zephon. 3 Pharaoh will think, ‘The Israelites are wandering around the land in confusion, hemmed in by the desert.’ 4 And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and he will pursue them. But I will gain glory for myself through Pharaoh and all his army, and the Egyptians will know that I am the Lord.” So the Israelites did this.

5 When the king of Egypt was told that the people had fled, Pharaoh and his officials changed their minds about them and said, “What have we done? We have let the Israelites go and have lost their services!” 6 So he had his chariot made ready and took his army with him. 7 He took six hundred of the best chariots, along with all the other chariots of Egypt, with officers over all of them. 8 The Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, so that he pursued the Israelites, who were marching out boldly. 9 The Egyptians—all Pharaoh’s horses and chariots, horsemen and troops—pursued the Israelites and overtook them as they camped by the sea near Pi Hahiroth, opposite Baal Zephon.

10 As Pharaoh approached, the Israelites looked up, and there were the Egyptians, marching after them. They were terrified and cried out to the Lord. 11 They said to Moses, “Was it because there were no graves in Egypt that you brought us to the desert to die? What have you done to us by bringing us out of Egypt? 12 Didn’t we say to you in Egypt, ‘Leave us alone; let us serve the Egyptians’? It would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the desert!”

13 Moses answered the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand firm and you will see the deliverance the Lordwill bring you today. The Egyptians you see today you will never see again. 14 The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still.”

15 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on. 16 Raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea to divide the water so that the Israelites can go through the sea on dry ground. 17 I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians so that they will go in after them. And I will gain glory through Pharaoh and all his army, through his chariots and his horsemen.18 The Egyptians will know that I am the Lord when I gain glory through Pharaoh, his chariots and his horsemen.”

19 Then the angel of God, who had been traveling in front of Israel’s army, withdrew and went behind them. The pillar of cloud also moved from in front and stood behind them, 20 coming between the armies of Egypt and Israel. Throughout the night the cloud brought darkness to the one side and light to the other side; so neither went near the other all night long.

21 Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and all that night the Lord drove the sea back with a strong east wind and turned it into dry land. The waters were divided, 22 and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with a wall of water on their right and on their left.

23 The Egyptians pursued them, and all Pharaoh’s horses and chariots and horsemen followed them into the sea. 24 During the last watch of the night the Lord looked down from the pillar of fire and cloud at the Egyptian army and threw it into confusion. 25 He jammed the wheels of their chariots so that they had difficulty driving. And the Egyptians said, “Let’s get away from the Israelites! The Lord is fighting for them against Egypt.”

26 Then the Lord said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand over the sea so that the waters may flow back over the Egyptians and their chariots and horsemen.” 27 Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and at daybreak the sea went back to its place. The Egyptians were fleeing toward it, and the Lord swept them into the sea. 28 The water flowed back and covered the chariots and horsemen—the entire army of Pharaoh that had followed the Israelites into the sea. Not one of them survived.

29 But the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with a wall of water on their right and on their left. 30 That day the Lord saved Israel from the hands of the Egyptians, and Israel saw the Egyptians lying dead on the shore. 31 And when the Israelites saw the mighty hand of the Lord displayed against the Egyptians, the people feared the Lord and put their trust in him and in Moses his servant.

Today Pastor Dan continues the series “Foundations For a Healthy Church.” It’s based on the Bible, of course; but in this series we will also be looking back at “Core Values” that our Rosewood council adopted many years ago. A brochure explaining these “Core Values” is enclosed in this bulletin. We always distribute this info in our New Members Class; we think it will be beneficial to reinforce these foundational biblical principles with the whole church.

Core values are not simply a statement of what we believe; they’re more a statement about how we do life together. Every organization has core values, and though they are sometimes unwritten they always shape the life of that organization. Hopefully as we talk about our “Core Values” together, Bible in hand, you will say: “Yes, that’s what our church is really like!” Or better yet: “This is why I love being part of Rosewood!”
