This is Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International with the Whyte House Daily Reading of the Chronological Bible Episode #100, 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 6.
1 Then the Lord said unto Mo’-ses, Now shalt thou see what I will do to Phar’-aoh: for with a strong hand shall he let them go, and with a strong hand shall he drive them out of his land.
2 And God spake unto Mo’-ses, and said unto him, I am the Lord:
3 And I appeared unto A’-bra-ham, unto I’-saac, and unto Ja’-cob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JE-HO’-VAH was I not known to them.
4 And I have also established my covenant with them, to give them the land of Ca’-na-an, the land of their pilgrimage, wherein they were strangers.
5 And I have also heard the groaning of the children of Is’-ra-el, whom the E’-gyp-tians keep in bondage; and I have remembered my covenant.
6 Wherefore say unto the children of Is’-ra-el, I am the Lord, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the E’-gyp-tians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments:
7 And I will take you to me for a people, and I will be to you a God: and ye shall know that I am the Lord your God, which bringeth you out from under the burdens of the E’-gyp-tians.
8 And I will bring you in unto the land, concerning the which I did swear to give it to A’-bra-ham, to I’-saac, and to Ja’-cob; and I will give it you for an heritage: I am the Lord.
9 And Mo’-ses spake so unto the children of Is’-ra-el: but they hearkened not unto Mo’-ses for anguish of spirit, and for cruel bondage.
10 And the Lord spake unto Mo’-ses, saying,
11 Go in, speak unto Phar’-aoh king of E’-gypt, that he let the children of Is’-ra-el go out of his land.
12 And Mo’-ses spake before the Lord, saying, Behold, the children of Is’-ra-el have not hearkened unto me; how then shall Phar’-aoh hear me, who am of uncircumcised lips?
13 And the Lord spake unto Mo’-ses and unto Aa’-ron, and gave them a charge unto the children of Is’-ra-el, and unto Phar’-aoh king of E’-gypt, to bring the children of Is’-ra-el out of the land of E’-gypt.
14 These be the heads of their fathers’ houses: The sons of Reuben the firstborn of Is’-ra-el; Ha’-noch, and Pal’-lu, Hez’-ron, and Car’-mi: these be the families of Reuben.
15 And the sons of Sim’-e-on; Je-mu’-el, and Ja’-min, and O’-had, and Ja’-chin, and Zo’-har, and Sha’-ul the son of a Ca-naan-i’-tish woman: these are the families of Sim’-e-on.
16 And these are the names of the sons of Le’-vi according to their generations; Ger’-shon, and Ko’-hath, and Me’-rar-i: and the years of the life of Le’-vi were an hundred thirty and seven years.
17 The sons of Ger’-shon; Lib’-ni, and Shim’-i, according to their families.
18 And the sons of Ko’-hath; Am-ram, and Iz-har, and He’-bron, and Uz’-zi-el: and the years of the life of Ko’-hath were an hundred thirty and three years.
19 And the sons of Me’-rar-i; Ma’-ha-li and Mu’-shi: these are the families of Le’-vi according to their generations.
20 And Am-ram took him Joch-e-bed his father’s sister to wife; and she bare him Aa’-ron and Mo’-ses: and the years of the life of Am-ram were an hundred and thirty and seven years.
21 And the sons of Iz-har; Kor’-ah, and Neph’-eg, and Zich’-ri.
22 And the sons of Uz’-zi-el; Mi’-sha-el, and El-za’-phan, and Zith’-ri.
23 And Aa’-ron took him E’-li-she-ba, daughter of Am-min’-a-dab, sister of Na-ash’-on, to wife; and she bare him Na’-dab, and A-bi’-hu, El-e-a’-zar, and Ith’-a-mar.
24 And the sons of Kor’-ah; As’-sir, and El-ka’-nah, and A-bi’-a-saph: these are the families of the Kor’-hites.
25 And El-e-a’-zar Aa’-ron’s son took him one of the daughters of Pu’-ti-el to wife; and she bare him Phin’-e-has: these are the heads of the fathers of the Le’- vites according to their families.
26 These are that Aa’-ron and Mo’-ses, to whom the Lord said, Bring out the children of Is’-ra-el from the land of E’-gypt according to their armies.
27 These are they which spake to Phar’-aoh king of E’-gypt, to bring out the children of Is’-ra-el from E’-gypt: these are that Mo’-ses and Aa’-ron.
28 And it came to pass on the day when the Lord spake unto Mo’-ses in the land of E’-gypt,
29 That the Lord spake unto Mo’-ses, saying, I am the Lord: speak thou unto Phar’-aoh king of E’-gypt all that I say unto thee.
30 And Mo’-ses said before the Lord, Behold, I am of uncircumcised lips, and how shall Phar’-aoh hearken unto me?
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.”
