The Birth: The FIRST SIMILARITY is that while on earth, both MESSIAH YAHUSHUA (Matthew 1:21) and Moses (Exodus 2:10) were DELIVERERS sent by ABBA YAHUVEH / YAHWEH to HIS CHOSEN PEOPLE. They were both assigned to lead YAHUVEH’S Chosen People to THE PROMISED LAND. Sadly, Moses could not complete the task so Yahushua, the Son of Nun (a.k.a Joshua formerly known as Hosea) took over from him.
Exodus 2:1-10 Tree of Life Version (TLV)
2 Now a man from the house of Levi took as his wife a daughter of Levi. 2 The woman conceived and gave birth to a son. Now when she saw that he was delightful, she hid him for three months. [a] 3 But when she could no longer hide him, she took a basket of papyrus reeds, coated it with tar and pitch, put the child inside, and laid it in the reeds by the bank of the Nile. 4 His sister stood off at a distance to see what would happen to him.
5 Then the daughter of Pharaoh came down to bathe, while her maidens walked along by the riverside. When she saw the basket[b] among the reeds, she sent her handmaiden to fetch it. 6 When she opened it, she saw the child—a baby boy crying! She had compassion on him and said, “This is one of the Hebrew children.”
7 Then his sister said to Pharaoh’s daughter, “Should I go and call a nurse from the Hebrews to nurse the child for you?”
8 Pharaoh’s daughter told her, “Go!” So the girl went and called the child’s mother. 9 Then Pharaoh’s daughter said to her, “Take this child and nurse him for me, and I will pay you your wages.” So the woman took the child and nursed him. 10 After the boy grew older she brought him to Pharaoh’s daughter and he became her son. So she named him Moses saying, “Because I DREW HIM OUT OF THE WATER.”[c]
Matthew 1:17-25 Tree of Life Version (TLV)
17 So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations, from David until the Babylonian exile are fourteen generations, and from the Babylonian exile until the Messiah are fourteen generations.
The Miraculous Birth of Yeshua
18 Now the birth of Yeshua the Messiah happened this way. When His mother Miriam was engaged to Joseph but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Ruach ha-Kodesh. 19 And Joseph her husband, being a righteous man and not wanting to disgrace her publicly, made up his mind to dismiss her secretly. 20 But while he considered these things, behold, an angel of Adonai appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Miriam as your wife, for the Child conceived in her is from the Ruach ha-Kodesh. 21 She will give birth to a son; and you shall call His name (YAHUHSUA) Yeshua, for “HE WILL SAVE HIS PEOPLE FROM THEIR SINS.”
22 Now all this took place to fulfill what was spoken by Adonai through the prophet, saying, 23 “Behold, the virgin shall conceive and give birth to a son, and they shall call His name IMMANUEL,” which means “(YAH) GOD with us.”[a]
24 When Joseph woke up from his sleep, he did as the angel of Adonaicommanded him and took Miriam as his wife. 25 But he did not know her intimately until she had given birth to a Son. And he called His name (YAHUSHUA) Yeshua.
Moses means TO DRAW OUT / TO PULL OUT
YAHUSHUA means TO SAVE a.k.a TO DRAW OUT / TO PULL OUT
Their names revealed their mission on earth. Their mission was very similar.
Both are DELIVERERS from Bondage of Slavery in Egypt (Physical and Spiritual).
YAHUSHUA is the main DELIVERER who used Moses to deliver HIS People from Babylon. YAHUSHUA came to deliver us from our SINS, the POWER OF SIN as well as BABYLON and many all other forms of bondage as seen in Isaiah 61 and Luke 4.
Luke 4:18 King James Version (KJV)
18 The Spirit of the LORDis upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
Isaiah 61:1-3 Tree of Life Version (TLV)
Besorah for the Brokenhearted
61 The Ruach of Adonai Elohim is on me,[a]
because Adonai has anointed me
to proclaim Good News to the poor.[b]
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim liberty to the captives,
and the opening of the prison to those who are bound,
2 to proclaim the year of Adonai’s favor
and the day of our God’s vengeance,
to comfort all who mourn
3 to console those who mourn in Zion,
to give them beauty for ashes,
the oil of joy for mourning,[c]
the garment of praise
for the spirit of heaviness,
that they might be called oaks of righteousness,
the planting of Adonai,
that He may be glorified.
The SECOND SIMILARITY is that around the time of both their births, rumours spread about a DELIVERER of some kind amongst the people of Israel. These reached King Herod’s and Pharoah’s ears as well as their subjects. It was then that both Kings decreed that all males aged 2 years and below to be murdered. Both MESSIAH YAHUSHUA and Moses ended up the only remaining children in their generation since all their fellow age-mates had been murdered.
Exodus 1:14-22 Names of God Bible (NOG)
14 They made their lives bitter with back-breaking work in mortar and bricks and every kind of work in the fields. All the jobs the Egyptians gave them were brutally hard.
Pharaoh Tells the Midwives to Kill All Hebrew Baby Boys
15 Then the king of Egypt told the Hebrew midwives, whose names were Shiphrah and Puah, 16 “When you help the Hebrew women in childbirth, look at the child when you deliver it. If it’s a boy, kill it, but if it’s a girl, let it live.”
17 However, the midwives feared Elohim and didn’t obey the king of Egypt’s orders. They let the boys live. 18 So the king of Egypt called for the midwives. He asked them, “Why have you done this? Why have you let the boys live?”
19 The midwives answered Pharaoh, “Hebrew women are not like Egyptian women. They are so healthy that they have their babies before a midwife arrives.”
20 Elohim was good to the midwives. So the people increased in number and became very strong. 21 Because the midwives feared Elohim, he gave them families of their own.
22 Then Pharaoh commanded all his people to throw into the Nile every Hebrew boy that was born, but to let every girl live.
Matthew 2:13-23 Tree of Life Version (TLV)
The Angel of Adonai Appears
13 Now when they had gone, behold, an angel of Adonai appears to Joseph in a dream, saying, “Get up! Take the Child and His mother and flee to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is about to search for the Child, to kill Him.”[d]
14 So he got up, took the Child and His mother during the night, and went to Egypt. 15 He stayed there until Herod’s death. This was to fulfill what was spoken by Adonai through the prophet, saying, “Out of Egypt I called My son.”[e]
16 Then when Herod saw that he had been tricked by the magi, he became furious. And he sent and killed all boys in Bethlehem and in all its surrounding area, from two years old and under, according to the time he had determined from the magi. 17 Then was fulfilled what was spoken through Jeremiah the prophet, saying,
18 “A voice is heard in Ramah,
weeping and loud wailing,
Rachel sobbing for her children
and refusing to be comforted,
because they are no more.”[f]
19 But when Herod died, behold, an angel of Adonai appears in a dream to Joseph in Egypt, 20 saying, “Get up! Take the Child and His mother and go to the land of Israel, for those seeking the Child’s life are dead.”
21 So he got up, took the Child and His mother, and went to the land of Israel. 22 But hearing that Archelaus was king of Judea in place of his father Herod, he became afraid to go there. Then after being warned in a dream, he withdrew to the region of the Galilee. 23 And he went and lived in a city called Natzeret,[g] to fulfill what was spoken through the prophets, that Yeshua shall be called a Natzrati.
The THIRD SIMILARITY is that both MESSIAH YAHUSHUA and Moses spent some time in Egypt during their lifetime on earth.
MESSIAH YAHUSHUA spent some time in Egypt while an infant where he had been taken to hide from King Herod who was seeking to kill him. King Herod saw YAHUSHUA as a challenge to his position.
Moses was born and raised in Egypt. He had to flee from Egypt at some point later in order to save his life from the King of the Egypt at the time whose title had been changed to “Pharoah” by an evil man called “Rikayon” (Book of Jasher Chapter 14). Moses eventually returned to Egypt around the age of 80 to deliver YAHUVEH / YAHWEH GOD’S Children, Israel out of bondage to the Egyptians.
As we all know, Moses grew up in Pharoah’s Palace and was in fact adopted as a son to Pharoah. Remember that Pharoah’s daughter, Bathia had been discovered in the bulrushes at the time of the murder of all the children aged 2 and under after which Moses’ sister, Miryam/Miriam met with her and introduced the baby’s identity. Pharoah’s daughter, Bathia made a deal with Moses’ mother, Yocheved that Yocheved would raise Moses for the next two years by nursing him mostly. After two years, Moses was to be returned to Pharoah’s daughter, Bathia where he would be taught how to be a royal and a prince / king. Yocheved was actually paid for her service. She had to give Moses up in order not to lose him.
During Moses’ childhood in Pharoah’s Palace, Moses nearly lost his life once. The reason was that he took Pharoah’s crown from Pharoah’s head and placed it on his head for fun purposes and also sat on Pharoah’s throne. Pharoah took it lightly however, his subjects did not. The subjects ended up poisoning Pharoah’s heart against Moses. The result was that a Council meeting was held to decide if Moses innocently did what he did or deliberately did it with the mind to take over Pharoah’s throne in the future before Pharoah gave him permission to do so. Moses was very naive and innocent at the time. YAH had to get one of HIS HOLY Angels to attend the meeting as a human being in order to find a way to save Moses’ life. The Angel made a suggestion that would contribute to saving Moses’ life.
Book of Jasher, Chapter 70
1 And in the third year from the birth of Moses, Pharaoh was sitting at a banquet, when Alparanith the queen was sitting at his right and Bathia at his left, and the lad Moses was lying upon her bosom, and Balaam the son of Beor with his two sons, and all the princes of the kingdom were sitting at table in the king’s presence.
2 And the lad stretched forth his hand upon the king’s head, and took the crown from the king’s head and placed it on his own head.
3 And when the king and princes saw the work which the boy had done, the king and princes were terrified, and one man to his neighbor expressed astonishment.
4 And the king said unto the princes who were before him at table, What speak you and what say you, O ye princes, in this matter, and what is to be the judgment against the boy on account of this act?
5 And Balaam the son of Beor the magician answered before the king and princes, and he said, Remember now, O my lord and king, the dream which thou didst dream many days since, and that which thy servant interpreted unto thee.
6 Now therefore this is a child from the Hebrew children, in whom is the spirit of God, and let not my lord the king imagine that this youngster did this thing without knowledge.
7 For he is a Hebrew boy, and wisdom and understanding are with him, although he is yet a child, and with wisdom has he done this and chosen unto himself the kingdom of Egypt.
8 For this is the manner of all the Hebrews to deceive kings and their nobles, to do all these things cunningly, in order to make the kings of the earth and their men tremble.
9 Surely thou knowest that Abraham their father acted thus, who deceived the army of Nimrod king of Babel, and Abimelech king of Gerar, and that he possessed himself of the land of the children of Heth and all the kingdoms of Canaan.
10 And that he descended into Egypt and said of Sarah his wife, she is my sister, in order to mislead Egypt and her king.
11 His son Isaac also did so when he went to Gerar and dwelt there, and his strength prevailed over the army of Abimelech king of the Philistines.
12 He also thought of making the kingdom of the Philistines stumble, in saying that Rebecca his wife was his sister.
13 Jacob also dealt treacherously with his brother, and took from his hand his birthright and his blessing.
14 He went then to Padan-aram to the house of Laban his mother’s brother, and cunningly obtained from him his daughter, his cattle, and all belonging to him, and fled away and returned to the land of Canaan to his father.
15 His sons sold their brother Joseph, who went down into Egypt and became a slave, and was placed in the prison house for twelve years.
16 Until the former Pharaoh dreamed dreams, and withdrew him from the prison house, and magnified him above all the princes in Egypt on account of his interpreting his dreams to him.
17 And when God caused a famine throughout the land he sent for and brought his father and all his brothers, and the whole of his father’s household, and supported them without price or reward, and bought the Egyptians for slaves.
18 Now therefore my lord king behold this child has risen up in their stead in Egypt, to do according to their deeds and to trifle with every king, prince and judge.
19 If it please the king, let us now spill his blood upon the ground, lest he grow up and take away the government from thy hand, and the hope of Egypt perish after he shall have reigned.
20 And Balaam said to the king, Let us moreover call for all the judges of Egypt and the wise men thereof, and let us know if the judgment of death is due to this boy as thou didst say, and then we will slay him.
21 And Pharaoh sent and called for all the wise men of Egypt and they came before the king, and an angel of the Lord came amongst them, and he was like one of the wise men of Egypt.
22 And the king said to the wise men, Surely you have heard what this Hebrew boy who is in the house has done, and thus has Balaam judged in the matter.
23 Now judge you also and see what is due to the boy for the act he has committed.
24 And the angel, who seemed like one of the wise men of Pharaoh, answered and said as follows, before all the wise men of Egypt and before the king and the princes:
25 If it please the king let the king send for men who shall bring before him an onyx stone and a coal of fire, and place them before the child, and if the child shall stretch forth his hand and take the onyx stone, then shall we know that with wisdom has the youth done all that he has done, and we must slay him.
26 But if he stretch forth his hand upon the coal, then shall we know that it was not with knowledge that he did this thing, and he shall live.
27 And the thing seemed good in the eyes of the king and the princes, so the king did according to the word of the angel of the Lord.
28 And the king ordered the onyx stone and coal to be brought and placed before Moses.
29 And they placed the boy before them, and the lad endeavored to stretch forth his hand to the onyx stone, but the angel of the Lord took his hand and placed it upon the coal, and the coal became extinguished in his hand, and he lifted it up and put it into his mouth, and burned part of his lips and part of his tongue, and he became heavy in mouth and tongue.
30 And when the king and princes saw this, they knew that Moses had not acted with wisdom in taking off the crown from the king’s head.
31 So the king and princes refrained from slaying the child, so Moses remained in Pharaoh’s house, growing up, and the Lord was with him.
32 And whilst the boy was in the king’s house, he was robed in purple and he grew amongst the children of the king.
33 And when Moses grew up in the king’s house, Bathia the daughter of Pharaoh considered him as a son, and all the household of Pharaoh honored him, and all the men of Egypt were afraid of him.
34 And he daily went forth and came into the land of Goshen, where his brethren the children of Israel were, and Moses saw them daily in shortness of breath and hard labor.
35 And Moses asked them, saying, Wherefore is this labor meted out unto you day by day?
36 And they told him all that had befallen them, and all the injunctions which Pharaoh had put upon them before his birth.
37 And they told him all the counsels which Balaam the son of Beor had counselled against them, and what he had also counselled against him in order to slay him when he had taken the king’s crown from off his head.
38 And when Moses heard these things his anger was kindled against Balaam, and he sought to kill him, and he was in ambush for him day by day.
39 And Balaam was afraid of Moses, and he and his two sons rose up and went forth from Egypt, and they fled and delivered their souls and betook themselves to the land of Cush to Kikianus, king of Cush.
40 And Moses was in the king’s house going out and coming in, the Lord gave him favor in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of all his servants, and in the eyes of all the people of Egypt, and they loved Moses exceedingly.
41 And the day arrived when Moses went to Goshen to see his brethren, that he saw the children of Israel in their burdens and hard labor, and Moses was grieved on their account.
42 And Moses returned to Egypt and came to the house of Pharaoh, and came before the king, and Moses bowed down before the king.
43 And Moses said unto Pharaoh, I pray thee my lord, I have come to seek a small request from thee, turn not away my face empty; and Pharaoh said unto him, Speak.
44 And Moses said unto Pharaoh, Let there be given unto thy servants the children of Israel who are in Goshen, one day to rest therein from their labor.
45 And the king answered Moses and said, Behold I have lifted up thy face in this thing to grant thy request.
46 And Pharaoh ordered a proclamation to be issued throughout Egypt and Goshen, saying,
47 To you, all the children of Israel, thus says the king, for six days you shall do your work and labor, but on the seventh day you shall rest, and shall not preform any work, thus shall you do all the days, as the king and Moses the son of Bathia have commanded.
48 And Moses rejoiced at this thing which the king had granted to him, and all the children of Israel did as Moses ordered them.
49 For this thing was from the Lord to the children of Israel, for the Lord had begun to remember the children of Israel to save them for the sake of their fathers.
50 And the Lord was with Moses and his fame went throughout Egypt.
51 And Moses became great in the eyes of all the Egyptians, and in the eyes of all the children of Israel, seeking good for his people Israel and speaking words of peace regarding them to the king.
The FOURTH SIMILARITY is that while on earth, MESSIAH YAHUSHUA and Moses were PROPHETS.
Deuteronomy 18:15-22 Names of God Bible (NOG)
15 Yahweh your Elohim will send you a PROPHET, an Israelite like me. You must listen to him. 16 This is what you asked Yahweh your Elohim to give you on the day of the assembly at Mount Horeb. You said, “We never want to hear the voice of Yahweh our Elohim or see this raging fire again. If we do, we’ll die!”
17 Yahweh told me, “What they’ve said is good. 18 So I will send them a PROPHET, an Israelite like you. I will put my words in his mouth. He will tell them everything I command him. 19 Whoever refuses to listen to the words that prophet speaks in my name will answer to me. 20 But any prophet who dares to say something in my name that I didn’t command him to say or who speaks in the name of other gods must die.”
21 You may be wondering, “How can we recognize that Yahweh didn’t speak this message?” 22 If a prophet speaks in Yahweh’s name and what he says doesn’t happen or come true, then it didn’t come from Yahweh. That prophet has spoken on his own authority. Never be afraid of him.
Mark 6:4-6 Names of God Bible (NOG)
4 But Yeshua told them, “The only place a PROPHET isn’t honored is in his hometown, among his relatives, and in his own house.” 5 He couldn’t work any miracles there except to lay his hands on a few sick people and cure them. 6 Their unbelief amazed him.
The FIFTH SIMILARITY is that both Moses and MESSIAH YAHUSHUA are referred to as THE LAW OF YAHUVEH/ YAHWEH GOD.
Moses is called THE LAW and THE LAW he wrote is called Moses’ LAW. YAHUSHUA even said while on earth that if the Jews continue to follow Moses’ Law to the letter without accepting YAHUSHUA as their MESSIAH, then they obey in vain and Moses will judge them on Judgement Day in future rather than YAHUVEH GOD judging through through YAHUSHUA’S Righteousness and Grace.
It is evident throughout the HOLY BIBLICAL SCRIPTURES that YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH is THE LAW OF YAHUVEH/ YAHWEH GOD! As per John 1, YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH is THE WORD OF YAHUVEH GOD! YAHUSHUA, the WORD OF YAHUVEH was sent to Adam and Eve several times to save them from Satan’s evil agenda. In the First and Second Books of Adam and Eve, YAHUSHUA was always called, THE WORD OF YAHUVEH / YAHWEH GOD). Check out the Teaching by the name of John 10:10 & 1 Peter 5:8 explained.
THE LAW = THE TORAH which means INSTRUCTION FROM YAH therefore YAHUSHUA is THE LAW! YAHUSHUA is THE TORAH!
Matthew 5:17-20 Names of God Bible (NOG)
Jesus Fulfills the Old Testament Scriptures
17 “Don’t ever think that I came to set aside Moses’ Teachings or the Prophets. I didn’t come to set them aside but to make them come true. 18 I can guarantee this truth: Until the earth and the heavens disappear, neither a period nor a comma will disappear from the Scriptures before everything has come true. 19 So whoever sets aside any command that seems unimportant and teaches others to do the same will be unimportant in the kingdom of heaven. But whoever does and teaches what the commands say will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 I can guarantee that unless you live a life that has GOD’S approval and do it more faithfully than the experts in Moses’ Teachings and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
Romans 7:7-13 Names of God Bible (NOG)
Moses’ Laws Show What Sin Is
7 What should we say, then? Are the laws in Moses’ Teachings sinful? That’s unthinkable! In fact, I wouldn’t have recognized sin if those laws hadn’t shown it to me. For example, I wouldn’t have known that some desires are sinful if Moses’ Teachings hadn’t said, “Never have wrong desires.” 8 But sin took the opportunity provided by this commandment and made me have all kinds of wrong desires. Clearly, without laws sin is dead. 9 At one time I was alive without any laws. But when this commandment came, sin became alive 10 and I died. I found that the commandment which was intended to bring me life actually brought me death. 11 Sin, taking the opportunity provided by this commandment, deceived me and then killed me.
12 So the laws in Moses’ Teachings are holy, and the commandment is holy, right, and good. 13 Now, did something good cause my death? That’s unthinkable! Rather, my death was caused by sin so that sin would be recognized for what it is. Through a commandment sin became more sinful than ever.
Matthew 22:36-40 Names of God Bible (NOG)
36 “Teacher, which commandment is the greatest in Moses’ Teachings?”
37 Yeshua answered him, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the greatest and most important commandment. 39 The second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as you love yourself.’ 40 All of Moses’ Teachings and the Prophets depend on these two commandments.”
