He saw a bush burning with fire and the bush was not consumed. Moses decided to look at what was happening, it was then God called him and asked him to put off his shoes for where he was standing is a holy ground. This was when God disclosed his Identity as the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

God instructed Moses to go and deliver the Israelites from the bondage of the Egyptians telling him that he had seen the affliction of his people under the task masters of the Egyptians and has come to deliver them and that he will take them to a land flowing with milk and honey. Moses asked God for his name and God said’’ I am who I am’’. Moses complained about his speech and God told him to make Aaron his brother his interpreter.
