Xtreme Faith 7
“Faith of Moses, Extreme Patience”

Hebrews 11:23-29 ~  9/20/2020
Dr. Scott T. Arnold ~ First Baptist Church of Los Angeles, CA


INTRODUCTION:  Faith is the “X” factor:

  1. that teaches us patience as we trust God.
  2. that humbles us to discover the power of God.
  3. that trusts in God’s providence and deliverance.


I.
Moses was no ordinary child (Hebrews 11:23)
8 By faith Moses’ parents hid him for three months after he was born, because they saw he was no ordinary child, and they were not afraid of the king’s edict.


II. Moses chose God’s destiny by faith. (Hebrews 11:24-25)
24 By faith Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be known as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter. 25 He chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather than to enjoy the fleeting pleasures of sin.


III. Moses humbled himself in preparation for Christ (26)
26 He regarded disgrace for the sake of Christ as of greater value than the treasures of Egypt, because he was looking ahead to his reward.


IV. Moses’ vision gave him patience and perseverance (27)
27 By faith he left Egypt, not fearing the king’s anger; he persevered because he saw him who is invisible.


V. Moses’ was faithful to trust God’s Passover (28)
28 By faith he kept the Passover and the application of blood, so that the destroyer of the firstborn would not touch the firstborn of Israel.


VI. Moses’ was faithful to trust God’s Power to Deliver (29)
29 By faith the people passed through the Red Sea as on dry land; but when the Egyptians tried to do so, they were drowned.

  • Extreme faith sees humility as a means to experience God’s power.
  • Extreme faith sees God’s plan of salvation and deliverance.

Questions for Discussion:

  1. What are you finding difficult to have patience with during this time of the COVID 19 pandemic? How can we relate to the people Israel as they were in bondage in Egypt?
  2. What lessons do we learn from Moses and the people of Israel as they patiently trusted God’s provision, protection and deliverance?
  3. Moses chose to identify with his people and not with the Egyptians. Why was this significant and important as it relates to how God views those oppressed and unjustly treated?
  4. The author of Hebrews indicates that Moses had faith that helped him do difficult things. How can you relate to this?
  5.   How did Moses prepare for the coming of Jesus Christ?
