Blake and I were having one of our late night Bible studies recently and got to talking about the dawning of Moses’ and Aaron’s ministry. Because Yahweh operates in patterns and is always trying to teach us something, we should be able to learn a lot from their opening act. Let’s take a look into their first moment in the limelight and see what we can learn.
When we think of light, we often think of light bulbs, turning on the light, no darkness, et cetera. Our western minds quickly go to the most familiar part of what light is to us. But if you lived in the first century, the word “light” brought a single word to mind....fire. Fire was the origin of light in their world; the two words were almost synonymous. Fire is the origin and light is simply the result of the fire’s existence. In this article I would like to share a little of the power of this word and make a few connections to not only the scriptures but also to how it can apply to our lives.
