This is Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International with the Whyte House Daily Reading of the Chronological Bible Episode #96, where I read the Holy Bible in the King James Version each day in chronological order. This unique viewpoint allows you to read the whole Bible as a single story and to see the unfolding of God’s plan in history. Today we are reading Exodus 2 and 1 Chronicles 6:1-3a.
1 And there went a man of the house of Le’-vi, and took to wife a daughter of Le’-vi.
2 And the woman conceived, and bare a son: and when she saw him that he was a goodly child, she hid him three months.
3 And when she could not longer hide him, she took for him an ark of bulrushes, and daubed it with slime and with pitch, and put the child therein; and she laid it in the flags by the river’s brink.
4 And his sister stood afar off, to wit what would be done to him.
5 And the daughter of Phar’-aoh came down to wash herself at the river; and her maidens walked along by the river’s side; and when she saw the ark among the flags, she sent her maid to fetch it.
6 And when she had opened it, she saw the child: and, behold, the babe wept. And she had compassion on him, and said, This is one of the He’-brews’ children.
7 Then said his sister to Phar’-aoh’s daughter, Shall I go and call to thee a nurse of the He’-brew women, that she may nurse the child for thee?
8 And Phar’-aoh’s daughter said to her, Go. And the maid went and called the child’s mother.
9 And Phar’-aoh’s daughter said unto her, Take this child away, and nurse it for me, and I will give thee thy wages. And the women took the child, and nursed it.
10 And the child grew, and she brought him unto Phar’-aoh’s daughter, and he became her son. And she called his name Mo’-ses: and she said, Because I drew him out of the water.
11 And it came to pass in those days, when Mo’-ses was grown, that he went out unto his brethren, and looked on their burdens: and he spied an E-gyp’-tian smiting an He’-brew, one of his brethren.
12 And he looked this way and that way, and when he saw that there was no man, he slew the E-gyp’-tian, and hid him in the sand.
13 And when he went out the second day, behold, two men of the He’-brews strove together: and he said to him that did the wrong, Wherefore smitest thou thy fellow?
14 And he said, Who made thee a prince and a judge over us? intendest thou to kill me, as thou killedst the E-gyp’-tian? And Mo’-ses feared, and said, Surely this thing is known.
15 Now when Phar’-aoh heard this thing, he sought to slay Mo’-ses. But Mo’-ses fled from the face of Phar’-aoh, and dwelt in the land of Mid’-an: and he sat down by a well.
16 Now the priest of Mid’-an had seven daughters: and they came and drew water, and filled the troughs to water their father’s flock.
17 And the shepherds came and drove them away: but Mo’-ses stood up and helped them, and watered their flock.
18 And when they came to Reu’-el their father, he said, How is it that ye are come so soon to day?
19 And they said, An E-gyp’-tian delivered us out of the hand of the shepherds, and also drew water enough for us, and watered the flock.
20 And he said unto his daughters, And where is he? why is it that ye have left the man? call him, that he may eat bread.
21 And Mo’-ses was content to dwell with the man: and he gave Mo’-ses Zip’-po-rah his daughter.
22 And she bare him a son, and he called his name Ger’-shom: for he said, I have been a stranger in a strange land.
23 And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of E’-gypt died: and the children of Is’-ra-el sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto God by reason of the bondage.
24 And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with A’-bra-ham, with I’-saac, and with Ja’-cob.
25 And God looked upon the children of Is’-ra-el, and God had respect unto them.
1 Chronicles 6:1-3a
1 The sons of Le’-vi; Ger’-shon, Ko’-hath, and Me-rar’-i.
2 And the sons of Ko’-hath; Am’-ram, Iz’-har, and He’-bron, and Uz’-zi-el.
3 And the children of Am’-ram; Aa’-ron, and Mo’-ses, and Mir’-i-am.
When I was a teenager I wanted to get wisdom and knowledge, so I set out to read the big family Bible that many families had in those days. But I couldn’t get past Genesis 2 before I got bored with reading the Bible. I found out later in life that you have to believe on Christ and get saved before you can understand the Bible. So here is how I became a Christian and how you can too:
First, accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”
Second, accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”
Third, accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 18:8: “Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire.” Also, the Bible states in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”
Now that is bad news, but here’s the good news. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Just believe in your heart that Jesus Christ died for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead by the power of God for you so that you can live eternally with Him. Pray and ask Him to come into your heart today, and He will.
Romans 10:9 & 13 says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your Salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. I am sorry for my sins, and today I choose to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Jesus Christ as my Savior and I choose to follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.
If you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the Cross, was buried, and rose again, allow me to say, congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour!

Jesus Christ said in John 10:9, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.”
