1). In Exodus the content of Acts 7:27, 28 are combined with a realization to Moses that his crime was not a secret.
a). Exodus 2:14 And he said, Who made thee a prince and a judge over us? intendest thou to kill me, as thou killedst the Egyptian? And Moses feared, and said, Surely this thing is known.
2). In all of this we must consider the whole counsel of God, Moses left immediately after this revelation but he did not leave in fear. Hebrews clearly says he left in faith which means God spoke to him and directed him to leave.
a). Hebrews 11:27 By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.
b). This verse reveals that Moses not only had a relationship with God, he was looking forward to the Messiah, his arrival and impact on his life.
