Follow the Lamb

“The One Greater Than Moses” Exodus 33:12-33

Date:October 8, 2023
Author: Wayne J. Edwards



There is no doubt that the life and ministry of Moses was nothing less than remarkable, and that God had His sovereign Hand upon this man from his birth to his death! To the Jew, there had never been, nor would there ever be another man like Moses. But even Moses said God would raise up another prophet like him, and from among them, and the Apostle Peter said Jesus was the prophet Moses had predicted!

Follow the Lamb
“The One Greater Than Moses”
Exodus 33:12-33

“Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession,  Christ Jesus who was faithful to Him that appointed Him…for this Man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house. For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God, and Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, but Christ as a Son over His own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end!”

 “Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, today if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness…Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God. But exhort one another daily, while it is called today; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin!”

(From Hebrews 3)

 Following the LAMB OF GOD from Creation to Calvary!

  1. Signs of the Savior in Genesis – The book of Beginnings
  • The Pattern of Salvation –
  • The Lamb that was sacrificed to cover for the sin of Adam and Eve.
    • God’s gift –
    • The death of a “substitute”
    • The shedding of “blood”
  • God’s acceptance of Abel’s offering of a blood “sacrifice” and His rejection of Cain’s fruits.
  • The “types” or “forerunners of Christ –
    • Noah was commissioned to build an Ark and to preach the word of warning for 120 years.
    • The flood illustrates the 7-year tribulation.
      • Three groups of people in the flood!
      • Those removed FROM the flood!
      • Those delivered THROUGH the flood!
      • Those who perished IN the flood!
    • Isaac – willing to be sacrificed by His father.
    • Jacob – fled to exile; married a bride and returned to claim his possession.
    • Joseph – rejected by his family, sold into slavery, left for dead – God preserved Joseph’s life so he could preserve the godly seed through the next generation! Pharaoh’s dream was:
    • Seven years of plenty –
    • Seven year of famine –
    • Joseph received a gentile bride –
    • Joseph made himself known to his family –
    • Joseph cared for his family –
  • Genesis 1-11 tells the origin of sin and its devastation upon the earth!
  • Genesis 12-50 illustrates God’s plan for the redemption of lost man!
  • The “Seed” of the woman – Genesis 3:15 – will be our Savior!
  1. The Signs of the Savior in Exodus – The Book of Redemption
  • Moses proves God’s plan for the salvation of man must be:
    • Totally of God –
    • Through a person –
    • By the blood –
    • By His power –
  • Exodus gives some prophetic “pictures” of Christ!
  • The Burning Bush – God calls out to man
  • The Passover Lamb – God pays the price of sin
  • The Unleavened Bread – God separates us from sin
  • The Feast of Firstfruits – God promises us victory
  • The Pillar of Cloud and fire – God will make a way
  • The Manna from Heaven – God will provide
  • The Water from the Rock – God will provide
  • The tabernacle and Priesthood – God’s desire is that we are in “intimacy” with Him!
  1. The Savior of God – Greater than Moses
  • “The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall harken!” (Deuteronomy 18:15)
  • Most Hebrews in that day considered Moses to be the greatest person in their Hebrew history, because of his intimacy with God –
  • God had spoken to other men through visions and dreams, but God spoke to Moses through a burning bush and mouth to mouth!
  • Moses had led the people out of Egypt, given them the Law; the Ten Commandments, and the first five books of the Bible.
  • Parallels between Moses and Jesus:
    • Both born under foreign rulers –
    • Both born in the midst of babies being killed –
    • Both were Hebrew by birth –
    • Both spoke with God on a mountain –
    • Moses was given the Law – Jesus fulfilled it –
    • They both rebuked people for their idolatry –
    • They both freed Israel from their slavery –
  • How Jesus was GREATER than Moses:
    • Jesus didn’t deliver a message – He was the message.
    • Jesus didn’t bring the ten commandments down from the mountain – His was the finger that wrote them, as well as the only Person who obeyed them.
    • Jesus opened up our access to the throne of God.
    • Jesus guides today us by His Word not by signs.
    • Jesus is not faithful “TO” God’s house as a regular servant – but as a Son!
    • Being IN Jesus Christ – each believer becomes a part of “God’s House”!
