The parents of Moses in the Bible saw something beautiful in him when he was born. What they saw was an aura in the spirit, not just physical features. The Scripture above says, “…they saw he was a proper child….” It was not the birth of Moses that brought the news that a deliverer had arisen to deliver Israel from Egypt. God had given the prophecy of a deliverer through Abraham and same had been passed down by mouth from generation to generation, and had become a legend.
Every religion has a legend about a coming person. The description of some of their coming persons fits into the Bible description of the antichrist; some fit into the description of the first coming of Jesus. Around the time Moses was born, the children of Israel had been expecting the one that will deliver them from captivity in Egypt, but no one knew it was Moses. However, his parents perceiving something different about their child, risked disobeying Pharaoh’s command.
Pharaoh’s wise men must have seen something similar to the star the wise men saw at the birth of Jesus which told them somebody was coming to rescue the Jews. Pharaoh, like Herod, made a law to kill the Hebrew male babies and to make it legal he said he wanted to prevent them from joining their enemies to fight them. You can see the faith that destiny puts in people in the act of Moses’ mother and sister putting him on the river where the daughter of the person seeking to kill him would see him and perhaps show mercy.
PRAYER: Lord, help me to understand the deeper purpose to every event that occurs in my life. Amen!
