In Egypt, the king (Pharaoh) died and another took his place and made all the Hebrews/Israelites/Jews to be slaves for decades until God was ready to free them. He called on Moses to get Pharaoh to do it, and, Moses' staff, walking stick, was what God used to make magic against Pharaoh.

The Israelites/Hebrews/Jews cried out to God to free them from their bondage. As slaves, they were treated badly by the Egyptians and cried out to God to save them from their years of slavery. That year, God remembered his covenant with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, saw for perhaps the first time the Sons of Israel and decided to deliver them.

God told Moses to throw his walking stick to the ground and it turned into a serpent. Later when he met with Pharaoh as he tried to influence the Pharaoh to free the Israelite/Hebrew/Jewish slaves, he threw the stick to the ground and it turned into a serpent but that miracle had no influence because Pharaoh's soothsayers did the same.

Prior to leaving Midian to go back to Egypt, He had been on Horeb, the mountain of God when a bush suddenly started burning. Immediately, an angel of God appeared to Moses from the burning bush. That kept burning but was not consumed as it should have done.

God called out to Moses who said, "Here I am." God told him to not go near until he took off his sandals because he was on sacred ground. God reminded Moses that He was the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and that he was aware of their afflictions at the terrible hands of the Egyptian taskmasters.

He told Moses that He was going to send him to deliver His people to freedom and that He would be with him. Moses asked how he could let the people know who had sent him to them. God told Moses to tell them, "I AM WHO I AM" so you must say that "I AM has sent me to you."
