I am here, Moses.
We are glad that you are not acquainted with the contents of these messages beforehand. It helps you to develop confidence in your mediumship.
When I was on earth, there was, as you well know, a much dimmer perception of God. I was raised to believe in the multiplicity of the Egyptian gods. You may wonder, therefore, how I came to be so passionate about the Hebrew Deity. Well, certain incidents in my young life led me to question the Egyptian beliefs, for, even as a prince, I questioned many things. I had some interchanges with the Hebrew slaves, where I learned their beliefs. I was impressed that slaves could believe the way they did, considering their sufferings and their burdens.
But it wasn’t until the unfortunate incident with the Egyptian taskmaster (whom I did kill) that I was forced on my own resources. I chose to escape to the desert, where Jethro took me in. Many aspects of this part of my life, therefore, were accurately recorded in Scripture. I escaped to the desert because I could not justify murder, even though I was a prince. But when I committed that act, I already knew the truth of my identity, so that escaping to the desert was really my unconscious attempt to reframe my life and reconsider my new situation.
When I saw the bush, which seemed to flourish miraculously on seemingly barren ground, I went into a meditative semi-trance. I know now that I was guided to that lonely and out of the way place. It was there that, by psychic, inner reflection, I was given by God a revelation about His true identity and about my mission. It was as if someone were talking to me, so clearly did the thoughts come. But it was only heard by my inner ear. I sensed that something remarkable was occurring, so I took special care to be attentive to what was occurring.
By the time the vision was over, I had a burning conviction about God’s reality and about my mission to free my people. It was one of those life-changing experiences, which I knew I had to be true to. I had already possessed a strong character, strengthened and molded by my recent adversity. Also, I was pretty much on my own for the first time in my life, and I found this thrilling and liberating.
The vision happened just at the right time in my life. I had been deeply reconsidering my whole life, and was hungry and yearning for direction, and this is exactly what the vision provided. So you can see how God prepared me for my mission.
I had long since rejected the Egyptian religion, yet did not have a Hebrew conviction, that is, until the vision. After the vision, I knew, in my soul, what the Hebrew slaves perceived and how they felt, both about their slavery and about God. As an outcast myself (though self-imposed), I understood what it meant to be on the unfortunate side of society. So you see, it was easy to make the transition from desert outcast to liberator of the slaves.
I will end my narrative here for now. I am very pleased with the way you have received my thoughts, and you should feel more confident in your mediumship, considering the fact that you had no prior knowledge of what I would say.
I am sincerely grateful for your goodness of heart and your commitment.
