Examples of believers: - Moses, Heb 11:23-40
Moses was a descendant from the tribe of Levi.
Moses was born into slavery because the Jews were the slaves to the Egyptians at the time of his birth.
Moses was also one of the most handsome men in all of history, both in face and body.
Moses was an extremely powerful man, his strength was fantastic, he was extremely powerful, well built, and handsome.
Moses was also a genius in the field of music. He was a genius in the field of writing. He was a genius in engineering and he built two of the great treasure cities in Egypt.
He was also a military genius, an administrative genius and he had doctrine, common sense, good manners and wisdom.
He was one of the reasons why Egypt became so great.
He spent 40 years living in the palace as an Egyptian prince, he was just a baby when the order to execute all Jewish children under a certain age was given.
His parents refused to comply with such an evil order and so his mother by an act of great faith put Moses in a little basket that floated and she sealed it up and floated it down the Nile River.
Moses ended end up where the daughter of the Pharaoh was bathing and as she was bathing she heard the cry of the baby and saw the basket floating...or if you will, a baby ark.
She called him Moses because in the Hebrew Mosheh means drawn from the water.
Moses discovered his origin (that of Jew), and he believed on the Lord Jesus Christ known to him as Jehovah Elohim and he grew spiritually.
When he departed from Egypt he refused to accept the crown and saw him (TLJC) who was invisible.
The Old Testament saints also had their own corresponding invisible assets as we have, though they were different from ours.
He moved through the different stages of spiritual adulthood and became both a spiritual champion and visible hero.
In verse 2, Moses is said to be faithful to the Lord who had appointed him.
And in verse 4, Moses was faithful in all his house even as a servant,
Heb 11:27 looks like this; "By means of doctrine [pistis], he [Prince Moses] forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king [Thutmose III], he persevered; he saw the invisible [assets]."
Moses made a decision for God by which he gave up the greatest wealth, prosperity, human influence, and romance, all at one time.
He departed from the Egyptian court, spent forty years in the desert, after which he returned to bring out the Jews from slavery and to do one of the greatest jobs of leadership in all of human history.
In living, Moses was not afraid of anyone or anything.
Therefore, in dying, Moses was not afraid at all since living and dying go together.
Moses was one of the four greatest geniuses in all of human history according to many scholars, of course there is Jesus Christ, Moses, Julius Caesar, and the apostle Paul.
Moses also advanced to spiritual independence or autonomy where he made the greatest of all decisions which is to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.
When it said he endured or persevered, what did Moses "persevere" in? = In undeserved suffering: Forty years in the desert where he completed both momentum testing and evidence testing.
Moses didn't "see "him" who was invisible;" he "saw the invisible assets."
The patience of that man, the courage, the mental attitude, the marvelous spiritual life and the humility of that man is fantastic, Num 12:3, calls him the most humble man in all the earth.
Num 12:3 (Now the man Moses was very humble, more than any man who was on the face of the earth.)
When Moses married the Ethiopian woman his sister began to malign him and his second wife and in the maligning she ended up with leprosy.
