Exodus 6:19-20 Mother’s Loving Gospel Milk

Exodus 6:19-20

The sons of Merari: Mahli and Mushi. These are the families of the Levites according to their generations. 20 Amram married his father’s sister Jochebed, and she bore him Aaron and Moses; and the length of Amram’s life was one hundred and thirty-seven years.

The Hebrew people were welcome people by the Egyptian people, years later the Pharaoh’s heart became fearful the Hebrew would outnumber them. They were only doing what God told Adam and Eve, be fruit and multiply and if is completely natural for a husband and wife, to be intimate, love each other and little children increase their family.  Moses’ mother’s name was Jochebed which is  Hebrew for “Glory of Yahweh or the Glory of God’. Jochebed let the glory of God shine in her way, she obeyed His word rather than the law of the land and did not allow her beautiful son to be killed. When the Egyptian Pharaohs were frightened the Hebrews would outnumber them and someday start a rebellion, they gave a demanding order that Hebrew boys be thrown into the mighty Nile river, so that baby Hebrew boys would die.

Exodus 1:15 Then the king of Egypt spoke to the Hebrew midwives, one of whom was named Shiphrah and the other was named Puah; 16 and he said, “When you are helping the Hebrew women to give birth and see them upon the birthstool, if it is a son, then you shall put him to death; but if it is a daughter, then she shall live.”

Hebrew women are like many women, they have a desire to be a good wife and a good mother, and Jochebel was no different. H. Jochebel was God-fearing and respected the Lord more than the Egyptian king. When she gave birth to her son, she saw how beautiful her son Moses was beautiful. She knew God is against murder especially a newborn child. She took an act of faith and trusted the Lord, she made a basket that would float on water. She put the basket on the river Nile, let the basket go, and with a prayer to God, Lord maker of heaven, earth, mountain, oceans, and river stream took care of my beautiful son. An Egyptian princess saw the basket and saw a Hebrew boy in it, she fell in love and named him Mose. The princess wanted to raise Moses as her own, but could not nurse him. She asked a young Hebrew girl, little did the princess know the girl was Moses’ sister, so the sister showed the Egyptian, Jochebel and she was hired to feed her own son.

Exodus 2:8 Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, “Go ahead.” So the girl went and called the child’s mother. 9 Then Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, “Take this child away and nurse him for me, and I will give you your wages.” So the woman took the child and nursed him. 10 And the child grew, and she brought him to Pharaoh’s daughter and he became her son. And she named him Moses, and said, “Because I drew him out of the water.”

 Jochebed gave her son more mother’s, while she nurses him,  she talks and sings about  God, spiritual food. Because of Jochebed’s teaching, Moses knew he was Hebrew but was raised a Pharaoh and about the God of Abraham. Christianity teaches that Moses is a major figure in the Bible, even if he grew up an Egyptian royalty, he knew God who was. Because Jochebed love for God and her will do His will, God used Moses to free himself from slavery and the Lord used him to write the first five books of the Bible, the Torah. Jochebed’s testimony is to teach your children about God, and you might save him and many others. God bless you all, the Lord Jesus loves you and so do I, Samuel J H

Exodus 2:1  Now a man from the house of Levi went and married a daughter of Levi. 2 And the woman conceived and gave birth to a son; and when she saw that he was beautiful, she hid him for three months. 3 But when she could no longer hide him, she got him a papyrus [d]basket and covered it with tar and pitch. Then she put the child in it and set it among the reeds by the bank of the Nile. 4 And his sister stood at a distance to find out what would happen to him.

Luke 11:27  While Jesus was saying these things, one of the women in the crowd raised her voice and said to Him, “Blessed is the womb that carried You, and the breasts at which You nursed!” 28 But He said, “On the contrary, blessed are those who hear the word of God and follow it.”
