The whole world will be united universally under One God Jehovah Elohim Adonai Government according to Luke 1:31-33 Jesus the Son of God Yeshua Jesus Christ Chosen by God as the Perfect Ideal Ruler will return to earth to Reign over mankind. In Revelation 19:16 Jesus is given the full title KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS in Revelation 17:14. Jesus is the Lord of lords and King of kings will take over all kingdoms on earth. When Jesus was on earth He shows excellence as Greatest Leader through Compassion to people. In Jeremiah 10:23 the LORD God Knows people’s lives are not their own so not to direct their own steps. During Jesus’ Reign righteous flourish in an abundant peace forever and endure.In Psalm 72:8, He shall have dominion from sea to sea and from the river unto the ends of the earth. Psalm 72:9, they that dwell in wilderness shall bow before him; and his enemies shall lick the dust. All kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him. Psalm 72:12 For he shall deliver needy when he cries the poor and him has no helper. Psalm 72:13 He shall spare poor, needy, and shall save the souls of the needy.Psalm 72:14 He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence: and precious shall their blood be in his sight. In Isaiah 2: 2 -4, Now it will come about that, in the last days the mountain of house of the Lord, Will be established as the chief of the mountains, And will be raised above the hills; And all nations will stream to it. Many people will come and say, “Come, let us go to mountain of the LORD, To house of the God of Jacob. That He may teach us concerning His ways so we may walk in His paths.” For the law will go forth from Zion And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. 4 And He will judge between the nations, And render decisions for many people; And will hammer swords into ploughshare and spears into pruning hooks. Nations will not lift up sword against nations so they will never again learn war. In Isaiah 11:1-9, A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit. 2 The Spirit of the Lord will rest on Him the Spirit of wisdom and understanding the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord 3 He will delight in the fear of the Lord. He will not judge by what He sees with His eyes or decide by what He hears with His ears; 4 with righteousness give needy justice in favour poor on earth. He will strike the earth with the rod of His mouth with the breath of His lips He will slay wicked. 5 Righteousness will be his belt and faithfulness sash around his waist. 6 The wolf will live with lamb, the leopard will lie down with goat, the calf and lion and yearling together; and a little child will lead them. 7 The cow will feed with bear, their young lie down together, and lion will eat straw like the ox.8 The infant will play near the cobra’s den, and young child will put its hand in viper’s nest. 9 They will not harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain, for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. Today many people suffer because they are made poor by the rich. But a compassionate government will make sure all have what they need. So people cannot create type of government God wants. In history governments failed in many ways to care for subjects or poor. Jewish people are rediscovering genuine relationship with Yeshua and restoring and clearing out garbage both Jewish side and the Christian side. That garbage wounds created over millennia of misunderstandings, false doctrines taught by Church on God’s plan for the Jewish People. True believers replace blond-haired, blue-eyed Christian image Yeshua by real Jewish identity. Yeshua is rediscovered people relate to Him love God.” Christians and Jews are blessed by gaining benefiting, removing man-made elements on Messiah and going straight to Word of God. Jesus Christ the Messiah Yeshua’s historical root is Jewish people from land of Israel. Christians reconnect with true Biblical foundation of master key to restoration. Biblical Church with Christ the Head and Jews are part of it.”In Ecclesiastics 4:1, Then I looked again at all the acts of oppression which were being done under the sun. And behold I saw the tears of the oppressed and that they had no one to comfort them; and on the side of their oppressors was power, but they had no one to comfort them. In Ecclesiastics 8:9, All this I have seen and applied my mind to every deed that has been done under the sun wherein a man has exercised authority over another man to his hurt.God Almighty has promised to provide a government that will replace all other government. God’s Ruler Will Replace all other rulers on earth. God’s Ruler Will take great care of all the people. In Daniel 2:44, And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom shall never be destroyed, or be left to another people as God’s people.In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed. Nebuchadnezzar’s dream revealed to Daniel of the king’s seen great image is a stone cut from the mountain without hands destroyed the image and the stone cut from the mountain without hands destroyed the image and the stone is Jesus Christ the Son of God. Jehovah God Adonai Elohim has chosen Jesus to restore earth to perfection before the sin and fall of Adam. Jesus is loving and interested in who receives and honour His dominion on earth. The decadence, opulence and corruption caused by god of mammon perish troubles of zero unemployment. mechanised work will cease. Jesus will help all His people in God’s Kingdom on earth because God’s Will will be done on earth as it is heaven.Jesus One Government King of Chosen by God will bring relieve to people and all pain, famine, starvation, food waste will stop. Jesus will establish earth as God originally planned before sin for a the perfect future of eternal perpetual happiness. Redeemed elect waiting and praying for God to shorten evil days will rejoice in exceeding victory when Jesus Rules. Despite the perfect plan of God’s government not all people will accept Jesus Christ’s Rule. Jesus will rid earth of all bad people opposing God’s Rule austerity to establish abundance, peace and security worldwide. “I, the LORD, have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles in Isaiah 42:6. God’s plan for nations is fulfilled with Jewish People. God chose Jews to be light to nations to shine light of God’s love and truth into darkness of this world. Some think God loves and favours Jews yet the truth is God desires all people be saved, come to knowledge of truth in 1 Timothy 2:4. So the PRINCE OF PEACE JESUS CHRIST RETURN BARUCH HABA ADONAI. “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times in Micah 5:2. Yeshua publicly declared in the Temple in Jerusalem that He was the Anointed One when He read this prophecy from Isaiah 61:1–2; Luke 4:18–19. “In the last days the mountain of the LORD’s temple will be established as the highest of the mountains; it will be exalted above the hills, and all nations stream to it in Isaiah 2:2. When God chose the Jewish People through Abraham in Genesis 12:2–3, He said He Will make Abraham into a great nation. Part of the covenant promise was to bless all those who blessed him and curse those who cursed him or his offspring. That promise is at work the ages evidenced throughout history.Many nations will be joined with the LORD in that day and will become my people. I will live among you and you will know that the LORD Almighty has sent me to you. The LORD will inherit Judah HIS portion of Hoy land and will choose His Jerusalem in Zechariah 2:11–12. The joining together of both Gentiles and Jews into one olive tree is God’s ultimate plan for both His Jewish people and nations. Messiah will reign from Jerusalem, and the nations will come up to Jerusalem to worship the Lord. Israel reveals Heart of God and ways, depth of HIS LOVE; unique beauty God’s relationship with Israel draw humans to Himself. His identity link Israel, to God’s reputation in Israel’s destiny. This is what the LORD Almighty says: ‘In those days ten people from all the languages and nations will take the firm hold of one Jew by the hem of his robe and say, “Let us go with you, because we have heard God is with you in Zechariah 8:23. The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He sent me to bind broken-hearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim year of the LORD’s favour in Isaiah 61:1–2; Luke 4:18–19. God’s message of salvation and redemption, Yeshua taught in His three years of ministry, directed to the Chosen People, specifically first. And Yeshua’s ministry, death, resurrection conscious He is sent to all lost sheep Israel in Matthew 15:24.Jesus said to all believers, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved in Mark 16:15–16. And so God’s plan of spiritual redemption in Yeshua HaMashiach is to all who repent believe Yeshua saved us from sin by His blood in Isaiah 53; Revelation 1:5. Believers wait for a 2nd coming of Yeshua to defend Israel and reign from Jerusalem. On that day God will destroy all nations that attack Jerusalem. God will pour out the house of David and inhabitants of Jerusalem spirit of grace, supplication. If you reject Christ looks on one pierced to mourn as one mourns for an only child and grieve bitterly as one grieves for first-born son in Bible in Zechariah 12:10; Isaiah 53:5; Revelation 1:7. In Isaiah 9:6, For unto us the Child Yeshua Jesus is born, unto us a Son is given and the government shall be upon His shoulder. And His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, On the throne of David and over his kingdom, To establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness, From then on and forever more. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will accomplish this.
I have posted watchmen on your walls Jerusalem, they will never be silent day or night. You who call on the LORD, give yourselves no rest and give Him No Rest till He establishes Jerusalem and makes her praise of earth in Isaiah 62:6-7. And let us not forget the Holy Bible came from our Biblical Homeland so Scriptures nurture and bless all people throughout the world. “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, ”May those who love you be secure in Psalm 122:6. God has remembered His love and faithfulness to Israel. All the ends of the earth have seen salvation of our God in Psalm 98:3. The modern state of Israel is undeniable evidence that God’s Word is true. Israel’s survival demonstrates God’s faithfulness, love, and mercy. The existence of this tiny state is an indication that God is about to pour out His Ruach HaKodesh, Holy Spirit for end-time spiritual restoration of God’s people prophesied Ezekiel 36:24–36. The miracle of the rebirth of the ancient Jewish homeland points to the soon expected fulfilment of Israel’s promised spiritual rebirth. It points to the return of Yeshua HaMashiach Jesus the Messiah and the setting up of His kingdom with His throne in Jerusalem. God says, “I am with you to watch over you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you in Genesis 28:15. 2 Who has ever heard of such things? Who has ever seen things like this? Can a country be born in a day or a nation be brought forth in a moment? Yet no sooner is Zion in labour than she gives birth to her children in Isaiah 66:8. This is in fulfilment of Bible prophecy, that “Abraham will surely become a great and powerful nation and all nations will be blessed through him in Genesis 18:18 and Genesis 12:3. “God Will take you out of the nations, gather you from all the countries and bring you back to your own land in Ezekiel 36:24. “Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes. Refrain from anger and turn from wrath do not fret it leads only to evil in Psalm 37:7-8. If I forget you Jerusalem, let my right hand lose its strength. Let my tongue cling to my palate if I fail to recall you, if I fail to elevate Jerusalem above my highest joy according to Psalm 137:5-6. “As a mother comforts her child, so God Will Comfort you; and you will be comforted over Jerusalem in Isaiah 66:13. Although Jerusalem is attacked, in Zechariah 12: 8, The LORD will defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem. The one who is feeble among them in that day will be like David and the house of David will be like God, like angel of the LORD before them. 9” God will destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
In Isaiah 29:7, Then the hordes of all the nations that fight against Ariel, Israel that attack her and her fortress and besiege her, will be as it is with a dream with a vision in the night. In Zechariah 14:2, God will gather all the nations to Jerusalem to fight against it, the city will be captured, the houses ransacked and the women raped. Half of the city will go into exile, but the rest of the people will not be taken from the city. In Zechariah 14:3, Then the LORD will go out and fight against those nations, as He fights on a day of battle. Israel’s Rebirth in 1948 is a miraculous testimony of love and faithfulness of God. Israel’s continuing strength and contributions to the world in fields of medicine, technology and agriculture is the fulfilment of countless Bible prophecies. The concrete evidence of the Word of God is true and remarkable reality of sovereign miracle Israel after 3 years from concentration camps in Auschwitz is a nation. So is the united Jerusalem in which the Old City and Temple Mount fell under Jewish sovereignty for the first time since the Destruction in 70 CE. Although Israel is the only country in the world whose right to exist and defend itself is continuously challenged, God Chose Israel as His Role Model Nation. And Jesus Christ as the Mega Super Star in the Super Power Nation Kingdom of God from heaven to come to Jerusalem, above all nations on the earth. The treasury of Scripture says, And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. In God says Zechariah 12:2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling to all the people. 1 The burden of the word of the LORD concerning Israel. Thus declares the LORD who stretches out the heavens, lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him, 2“Behold, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that causes reeling to all the people around and when the siege is against Jerusalem, it will also be against Judah. 3“It will come about God will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all people who lift it will be severely injured when all nations of earth gather against it.
4“In that day,” declares the LORD, “I will strike every horse with bewilderment and his rider with madness. But I will watch over the house of Judah, while I strike every horse of the people with blindness. 5“Then the clans of Judah will say in their hearts, ‘A strong support for us are the inhabitants of Jerusalem through the LORD of hosts, their God.’ 6“In that day I will make the clans of Judah like a fire-pot among pieces of wood and a flaming torch among sheaves so they will consume on the right hand and on the left all the surrounding people, while the inhabitants of Jerusalem again dwell on their own sites in Jerusalem. 7″The LORD will save the tents of Judah first, so that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem will not be magnified above the lion of the tribe of Judah. 8“In that day the LORD will defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and the one who is feeble among them in that day will be like David, and the house of David will be like God, like the angel of the LORD before them. 9“And in that day I will set about to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. Zechariah 14:14 Judah too will fight at Jerusalem. Isaiah 54:17 says No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper and every tongue that rises against Israel shall be condemned. In Haggai 2:22, God will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, destroy the strength of the kingdoms of the heathen; and I will overthrow the chariots, and those that ride in them; and the horses and their riders shall come down, every one by the sword of his brother. The wealth of all the surrounding nations will be collected in great quantities of gold and silver and clothing. Zechariah’s prophecy and Divine prediction will be a heavy burden to all the enemies of God and the church. Especially for Israel’s comfort and benefit Jesus promised God will make the enemies counsels foolish to weaken the courage of the enemies of God. God in that day will make the feeblest seem strong to resemble David who defeated Goliath so eminent in courage and every thing good. So watchmen Christians render excellent intercession as fire among wood, as a torch in a sheaf to kindle the flame of Divine love, to spread Jesus Christ to establish Jerusalem a Praise as God Comes Down from Heaven to Dwell in Jerusalem.
Moses wrote victory song to thank God and give HIM all the GLORY for their deliverance from Egypt. After a painful seemingly endless depravity, suffering atrocities in bondage in Egypt, finally God answers their cries and prayer and allows HIS people to leave safely and go serve I AM God who delivered them. We learn today, no matter all circumstances going through in life, God always makes a way in Jesus Name. At times, life feels like God does not care as if the enemy seems to have upper hand. Yet during even the difficult and challenging times in agony its still important to remember to thank, praise and honour God even in the midst of adversity. It shows our trust and confidence in God despite attacks of adversary. Moses sang his thanksgiving song of salvation in the Bible in Exodus 15:1-19, Moses and the children of Israel 1 sang the song to God: I will sing to the LORD for HE triumphed gloriously. The horse and rider HE threw into sea. The LORD is my strength and song. 2 And HE has become my salvation; HE is my God, I will praise Him My father’s God, I will exalt Him. 3 The LORD is a man of war; The LORD is HIS name. 4 Pharaoh’s chariots and his army He cast into the sea; His chosen captains are drowned in Red Sea. 5 The depths cover them; They sank to the bottom like a stone. 6 “Your RIGHT hand, O LORD is GLORIOUS in POWER; Your RIGHT Hand, O LORD has dashed the enemy in pieces. 7 In the greatness of Your excellence You have overthrown all those who rose against You; And You sent forth Your wrath; It consumed them like stubble. 8 And with the blast of Your nostrils. The waters were gathered together; The floods stood upright like a heap; The depths congealed in the heart of the sea. 9 The enemy said, ‘I will pursue,I will overtake,I will divide the spoil;My desire shall be satisfied on them. I will draw my sword, My Hand shall destroy them.’ 10 You blew with Your wind,The sea covered them; They sank like lead in the mighty waters. 11“Who is like You, O LORD among the gods? Who is like You GLORIOUS in Holiness, Fearful in praises doing wonders? 12 You stretched Your RIGHT Hand; The earth swallowed them. 13 You in Your mercy have led the people You redeemed; You guided them in Your strength To Your holy habitation. 14 The people will hear and be afraid; Sorrow will take hold of inhabitants of Philistia. 15 The chiefs of Edom will be dismayed; The mighty men of Moab, trembling will take hold of them; All the inhabitants of Canaan will melt away. 16 Fear and dread will fall on them; By the greatness of Your Arm They will be as still as a stone, Till Your people pass over, O Lord, Till the people pass over Whom You have purchased. 17 You will bring them in and plant them. In the mountain of Your inheritance, In the place, O LORD, You made For Your dwelling, The Sanctuary, O LORD Your Hands established. 18 The LORD Reigns forever and ever. 19 The horses of Pharaoh went with chariots and horsemen in the sea. God brought back the waters of the sea upon them. But the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst of the sea. 20 Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took the timbrel in her hand; and all the women went with her with timbrel and with dances.
21 Miriam answered them: “Sing to the LORD For HE triumphed GLORIOUSLY. The horse and its rider HE has thrown into the sea! The bitter waters are made sweet 22 Moses brought Israel from the Red Sea into Wilderness of Shur. And they went three days in the wilderness and found no water. 23 Now when they came to Marah, they could not drink the waters of Marah, for they were bitter. Therefore the name of it was called Marah. 24 And the people complained against Moses, saying, “What shall we drink?” 25 So he cried out to the Lord, and the LORD showed him a tree. When he cast it into the waters, the waters were made sweet. There HE made a statute and an ordinance for them, and there HE tested them, 26 and said, “If you diligently heed Voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I AM the LORD who heals you. 27 They came to Elim, where there were twelve wells of water and seventy palm trees; so they camped by the waters. God declared in His Words perilous times shall come, but the Lord God Lives Forever.
Exodus 1:1–6:1, says God rescued Israel in living history from Egypt after HE SAW their pain, HEARD their crying, KNEW their sorrow, HE CAME DOWN to deliver them. Films made by Christians on the Exodus accurately Honour God’s Mighty deliverance of these Hebrews or Israelites. Other Hollywood films mock God in their versions for entertainment so distort History of Exodus. Yet God’s Mighty Intervention Rescued HIS people from adversity. In an attempt to subdue Israel Pharaoh attacks babies so throws all male newborn Hebrews in the Nile River in Exodus 1:22. But continued to multiply, so ordered Hebrew midwives to kill all newborn males but Shifrah and Puah did not do so fearing God. And God Supernaturally Protects and bless their families for helping to multiply and increase Israelites populations even more in Exodus 1:16–21 The midwives feared God and so God made houses for them. א. וַיְהִי כִּי יָרְאוּ הַמְיַלְּדֹת אֶת הָאֱלֹהִים וַיַּעַשׂ לָהֶם ב: Pharaoh commanded all his people, saying, “Every son who is born you shall cast into the Nile, and every daughter you shall allow to live.” כב. וַיְצַו פַּרְעֹה לְכָל עַמּוֹ לֵאמֹר כָּל הַבֵּן הַיִּלּוֹד הַיְאֹרָה תַּשְׁלִיכֻהוּ וְכָל הַבַּת תְּחַיּוּן:.
So then the Levite parents of Moses had great faith in God did not comply with Pharaoh’s order. They hid their infant son for the first few months of his life. But babies grow so eventually they could no longer be hidden, so they put him in a basket and set him afloat on Nile among reeds. Despite circumstance God’s Protective Hand was on Moses as a child of destiny. Pharaoh’s daughter spotted the basket and saw the Hebrew baby inside, but she had pity on him and took him as her own. Instead of drowning in the Nile or dying at the hands of the Egyptians as newborn boys did, Moses was raised in the Pharaoh’s palace, Prince of Egypt. Moses survived miraculous salvation out of the Nile River in Egypt, hidden in basket coated with tar to prevent killing of Hebrew baby boys and infants by Pharaoh. God supernaturally saved Moses through Pharaoh’s daughter princess royal. Supernaturally, God did miracle process with sister Miriam watching from far by the river allowed to call his mother to be his nurse and nanny. God has a great sense of humour so what an irony the very place of danger and death for the Hebrew babies in the days of Moses became a place of refuge for Moses and Yeshua as a baby! Pharaoh’s daughter drew baby from the Nile and called him Moshe (מֹשֶׁה) from the word moshech, meaning pull or draw. Moses grew up in royal Egyptian palace yet burdened by fellow Israelites. Moses grew up in privilege and luxury but watched the persecution of the Hebrews in bondage to Egyptians. God prepares to deliver Hebrews through Moses’ and God’s fire not burning tree miracle encountered IAM to tell Hebrews and Pharaoh. GOD saw sufferings of Hebrews in bondage in Egypt heard their cries, groanings to God sent Moses to deliver them. Moses trained as Prince lived in luxury but felt pain of other Hebrews families.
“Moses knew one day he will help save them so tried to take matters literally into his own hands. Just as Herod told the magi to come back to him but they did not, enraged sent and slew all male children in Bethlehem and the vicinity, babies from two years old and under, according to the time determined from magi in Matthew 2:16. As baby Jesus escaped to Egypt so Moses was saved by Pharaoh’s and his mother. Like Yeshua saved by obedience and faith of earthly father Joseph, warned in a dream to flee to Egypt. “Behold, an angel of the LORD appeared to Joseph in dream and said ‘Get up! Take the Child and His mother and flee to Egypt and remain there until I tell you; for Herod is going to search for the Child to destroy Him.’ Joseph got up and took Child and His mother while it was night, left for Egypt in Matthew 2:13–14. Millions of Jacob’s descendants increased from the seventy that came to Joseph in Egypt in Exodus 1:5. Includes all Hebrews who remained in Egypt after famine settled when Abraham returned to Canaan. God renamed Jacob later as “Israel” lived in land of Egypt at Joseph’s invitation, soon multiplied to such a great and a mighty people new Pharaoh, who did not know Joseph, felt threatened by them. GOD’S GREAT sense of humour and irony is very place of danger and death for Hebrew babies in days of Moses was place of refuge for Moses and Yeshua as babies! Pharaoh’s daughter drew baby Mosed from Nile so called him Moshe (מֹשֶׁה) from the word moshech, meaning pull or draw from water. Moses grew up in royal Egyptian palace, but is burdened by plight of his fellow Israelites under such taskmasters with hard labour troubled him.
One day Moses saw an Egyptian slave master beating Hebrew, fearing Hebrew Israelites might join Egypt’s enemies in battles against them. The Israelites were exceedingly fruitful and so multiplied so greatly, increased in their numbers so numerous the land was filled with them in Exodus 1:7. So Egyptians forced them into bitter labour, building stores, cities and pyramids for Pharaoh and working the fields. Moses, Like Yeshua, this dramatic account of infant Moses parallels the life of infant Yeshua Jesus, sentenced to death by king Herod, who decreed all the Jewish male infants in Bethlehem be killed. Though God ordain punishment for stiffneck rebellion HE does not allow an abuse. Pharaoh tried to counter obstruct growing strength of Israelites. Egyptians forced them into the bitter labour that built pyramids for Pharaoh and they worked in the fields. Moses, Yeshua, was angry at the bad treatment of Hebrews. As a young man, Moses felt call to deliver his people but stepped ahead of God’s timing. Pharaoh took undue advantage of Hebrews and so started overworking them to try to cull them. Pharaoh was angry Hebrews thrive, flourish multiplied in Goshen too much ordered midwives and soldiers to kill them. Attempt by Moses to defend Israelite slave Moses killed Egyptian so he fled to Midian to escape Pharaoh’s death decree over him in Exodus 2:15. A shepherd, Moses roamed the wilderness in seach of refuge but met future wife. Midian, Moses expressed his calling as a deliverer by saving the daughters of the Priest of Midian who came to the well where he sat by. They wanted to draw water for their flock but shepherds tried to drive them away. Moses intervened and so watered their flocks for them. As Moses defended the daughters of Jethro, Priest of Midian so he welcomed Moses to live with him and gave Moses his daughter Zipporah as his wife. Egyptian Prince Moses turn shepherd knew good pasteur for his herd. In this process Moses spent next 40 years shepherding sheep in land of Midian. Moses knew landscape well in a period of time God used to prepare him to Shepherd His people Israel out of Egypt. Children of Israel cried out to God so time came for God to save and deliver them by Moses. Moses lived with his wife and children and told them about Hebrews in Egypt.
At the same time God heard groanings remembers HIS Covenant to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob in Exodus 2:24. Consuming God of Fire Appeared to Moses from out of flame of a bush burning but not consumed. From midst of this burning bush at foot of Mount Sinai, God told Moses HE Heard the cries of His People and was sending Moses to go back to Pharaoh in His Name and His power on His behalf. To redeem God’s people out of bondage of slavery and oppression for 400 years. The prince of Egypt was humbled by his wilderness experience seemed to lack confidence when it came to his role as a leader of a nation. Moses asked for name of the One sending him. God answered with HIS NAME, Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh—אֶהְיֶה אֲשֶׁר אֶהְיֶה. Widely translated as I AM that I AM the Hebrew grammatical form is actually in the future tense. God’s name is translated, I WILL BE AS I WILL BE. “The LORD Said, “Put your hand inside your cloak. “Moses puts his hand into his cloak and took it out so it was leprous like snow. God cured and healed Moses PROVES HIS POWER, PRESENCE AS THE ONLY ONE TRUE LIVING GOD ALMIGHTY.The message to Moses from God is look to up to God the same yesterday, today, forever to handle details of the future. God is Whoever He chooses to be, God the father, friend, comforter, counselor or disciplinarian. We trust God’s infinite Wisdom in our lives in all moments of time. Despite an assurance Moses felt unqualified for the task says he is slow in speech. He begs God to send someone else so God allows Aaron Moses’ brother to accompany him, spokesperson. They reached Pharaoh so they delivered the message, “Thus says the LORD, Israel is My firstborn son, I say to you let MY Son go to serve ME in Exodus 4:22–23.
Moses’ progress as new leader, teaches leaders that Moses is not ready to lead overnight. God trains him in wilderness experience to redirect route to Canaan into the fullness of destiny. If incapable of accomplishing things, God us sends HIS Divine Helpers like Aaron to help and to support. God turned Moses’ staff stick into a snake demonstrating God’s power copied by magicians but God’s Superior Power swallowed up snakes of magicians to defeat them. Pharaoh was stubborn than ever did not to let go. Confidence in God through all trials and tribulations of life means God Remains TRUE and HIS PRESENCE help fulfill our assigned destiny in Jesus Name with all thanks and GLORY to God. It gets worse before it gets better so Moses persists despite Pharaoh’s stubbornness. Moses held onto faith in God to challenge the Pharaoh to PROVE THAT GOD’S POWER surpasses all his counterfeit powers.
The suffering of the Hebrew Israelites show despite tyranny of Egyptians, the People of Israel still grew mighty in number. Oppressive circumstances cannot prevent God from carrying out His purposes and fulfilling His promises. Despite suffering, bondage or pain, what seems a very long time, Christian believers rest assured God hears cries. God Remembers Covenant through Messiah Jesus Yeshua to provide a way out of spiritual bondage into inheritance of God. Through plagues and judgments called makot in Hebrew which can, God proved His position as the One True God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and that the gods of the Egyptians were nothing.Through judgment whatever a nation or individual does to Israel for good or for evil, God will return it to them: “For the day of the LORD upon all the nations is near; as you have done, it shall be done to you; your reprisal shall return upon your own head in Obadiah 1:15 and Genesis 12:3. The whole nation of Egypt was in turmoil, rather than a mighty quick deliverance the situation got worse. Pharaoh made Israelites’ labour more difficult by demanding that they find their own straw, while maintaining the same quota in Exodus 5:18. The people turned on Moses and Aaron in bitterness. Moses responded by turning to GOD why HE did not deliver HIS people as promised. “LORD, why have YOU brought trouble on this people? Why is it YOU sent me?
Since I came to Pharaoh to speak in Your name, he has done evil to this people; neither have You delivered Your people at all in Exodus 5:22–23. God is in full control so Knows Better. God responded to Moses, ‘you shall see what I will do to Pharaoh. With a strong hand he will let go and with a strong hand he will drive out of his land in Exodus 6:1. Before departure, God told the Hebrews to borrow gold, treasures and clothing so the Hebrews left rich with wealth. But soon Pharaoh changed his mind and chased them to return into slavery. Without Hebrew nation’s mega structure building the project collapsed. There was no more free labour to serve rich living in luxury wealthy abundance at expense of blood, sweat and toil of Hebrews. Nobody tended the cucumber, watermelon, leeks, garlic, onions, fruit and vegetable gardens anymore. It was too late, Hebrews crossed over through the parting red sea. Pharaoh tried to cross but drowned in the sea. God Did Great and Mighty things when situation seemed worse. God is TRUE to HIS Promises so believers keep crying out for God’s deliverance. Continue waiting in faith and hopeful expectation for God to move on our behalf in all spiritual and earthly afflictions. God is not deaf, nor aloof to suffering. His Arm is not too short to save, “The righteous cry out and God Hears and Delivers them from all their troubles in Psalm 34:17. Moses told Pharaoh to Let God’s People Go but nothing changed immediately. Pharaoh refused to let Hebrews go and so Moses persevered with God’s Greater Plans to Glorify God’s Name. A Passover sacrifice of lamb, with unfermented bread eaten hurriedly with blood marking the front door posts for God’s Protection from the angel of death passing over Hebrews. Firstborn of Egyptians died but no Hebrews died. Pharaoh got the message and finally let go after the 10 plagues.
Pharaohs represents those who oppress with satan a spiritual enemy of souls to try to resist freedom with evil. In such circumstances, do not give up faith, for in due time we see God’s MIGHTY hand, outstretched arm to deliver in HIS PERFECT WAY and TIME. “Rejoice in hope be patient in tribulation, constant in prayer says Romans 12:12. These last days as once again those who desire to destroy God Destroys, pray for salvation and redemption of all people. You help bring GoodNews Gospel of Jesus Yeshua to all. “In this way all will be saved, as written, ‘The deliverer will come from Zion to turn Godlessness from Jacob in Romans 11:26. It is GOD’S WILL that all people be saved in Jesus Name. Moses and the people left Egypt and continued into Canaanland now present Israel.
In Isaiah 27:6-28 The days will come when Jacob shall take root, Israel shall blossom and put forth shoots and fill the whole world with fruit. Israel saved by the LORD with everlasting salvation will never be put to shame or disgraced, to ages everlasting says Isaiah 45:17. “The people of Israel and Judah who lived in the towns of Judah bring tithes of herds, flocks and tithe of the holy things dedicated to the LORD their God and piled them in heaps in 2 Chronicles 31:6. The Hebrew turned to look on in amazement with gratitude to God, they saw wicked with own eyes destroyed right before them. All the years of toil, slavery bondage suffering, torment, misery, humiliation erased as they saw the wicked ones who oppressed them consumed by God’s red sea forever and ever. Mighty song composed in Psalm 136:10-12 recall God’s wonderful victory over all God’s enemies of God’s children.
“To HIM who struck down the firstborn in Egypt HIS LOVE endures forever and brought Israel out from among them HIS LOVE endures forever; With a MIGHTY hand and an outstretched arm HIS LOVE endures forever”
Jesus and His siblings and members of His immediate or extended family lived together with each other. Christ enjoyed healthy family atmosphere of members of close-knit family. Christ’s family and the saved apostles, disciples, multitudes joined to follow Christ city to city. Jacob had family conflict of the brothers with Joseph due to envy and jealousy. Jacob’s family reunited after years of an enmity between brothers. Cultures rely heavily on sons to continue lineage. The oldest leader inherits main assets entrusted as steward for members needs. So cousins and nephews interact. The communities neighbourhoods built on land allocated to tribe. Genesis on life of Abraham and Israel (Jacob) and his sons is classic 12 tribes of Israel settled on land of Israel. Psalm 133 land to David’s setting extend to family in Israel sons stay at home on ancestral family home. And get married with children in extended family home. David’s anointing as king by Samuel all sons lived together. David’s experience is similar to Joseph in Genesis.Joseph’s favour of dreams from God and His father’s favouritism led to plot to try to kill him sold him to slavery in Egypt. David’s good experience but left to care for sheep as youngest so older brothers went into battle. Joseph reconciled with all his brothers and blessed them. David as king brought Israel is together as one nation and people in relative peace for 40 years. Solomon’s rule of the 40 years no longer factions, tribes living together in harmony as a whole nation. A family of Israel required in Temple of Christian worship of Messiah. Christmas reminds all to forgive and let go to live in peace. Churches do amazing job to reach out to bigger community to celebrate Christ. In diasporia Jews exiled in the world still preserved their language, culture now restored as nation reborn. Church truly global community, brothers and sisters in Christ. Modern society community in society class, wealth, gated communities to live with people sharing interest. WithCommunity provide members look out for their best interest of all not only select privileged few. With families scattered all over the world, Christmas is time to meet to celebrate and catch up progress of members of the family. With Skype, What’s Up, Facebook, telephone, family maintains contact possible. With Christmas cards, gifts, visit is time make the sacrifice to check on members of the family or recreated friendship families. Whatever is best is done to be with the family to relax to enjoy their company. Despite challenges an interacting family truly get best support from the family though members may not be preferred list. God in His Wisdom, Grace, Mercy, Sees it Fit to place and to allocate each person according to HIS Pleasure. So hold your tongue, FOCUS on the BEST in the most outrageous, repelling members of the family. Include those one rather avoids God knows best. Thank God for a next of kin, bless them and ask God to help build up families in Jesus Name.

Bible good deed feeds are love actions of faith in life done to others in the name of God that turns into a memorial to save the life of donors. This is really so true because many lives have been saved by giving to others. So literally saved by love deeds as people helped PLEAD God’s Mercy and Compassion, because they could not let go of such a precious soul. When Tabitha Dorcas in the Bible died, people brought along her gifts of purple clothes she gave them, so sent for Peter to come to pray to raise her from death so Tabitha was saved from premature death. At the time of giving, she did not know God took notice so recorded her faith actions and alms as a memorial. Her intention was to bless others less fortunate as God required. She fulfilled Proverbs 19:17, which says, Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the LORD so God rewards them for what they have done. Every little help given to God’s creation preserves God’s created life so Tabitha was RICH TOWARDS GOD. She did not lay goods up selfishly to store treasures only for herself. She knew God LOVED her so had no problem Loving people. Her money was not her master so she gave as she can afford cheerfully like widow gave 2 mites praised by Jesus in Temple. Tabitha gave to help alleviate pain to relief suffering of others pleased God as she gave unto the Lord. God fills void of deep hunger of human soul HIMSELF abundantly to Give Eternal Life. And as Tabitha seeks first the kingdom of God and righteousness all things abundantly life span added is raised from death.Tabitha’s generous kind-hearted deeds became memorial of righteous woman in Bible whose actions saved her life. Her name in Aramaic Tabitha in Greek means Dorcas. She was Jesus’ disciple who lived in Joppa in Acts 9:36-42 in New Testament. When she died, she was mourned by widows crying showing Peter purple robes and other clothings Dorcas made in Acts 9:39. As a very rich widow set up charity to help poor. So the disciples sent for Peter to come from Lydda to the place where her body laid for burial and raised her from the dead. The Spirit of God in man is Source of life not just ATM cash machines saves lives, God’s Grace keeps people alive. Godly wealth not defined by bank balance. Jesus’ BLESSES Israel as God’s GIFT of eternal priceless treasure. Do not put confidence in material wealth amassed for Proverbs 22:9 says the generous will be Blessed because they feed the poor. Tabitha’s love faith actions has reached throne of God. Jesus said good deed faith actions of kindness was done to him through those helped. James 2:16 says, if you tell poor man go in peace, be warm and be filled but you do not give him what he needs for his body what is use of that faith if it has no works it is dead. Jesus said, if you tell poor hungry person ‘go in peace keep warm, have a good day eat well but don’t give food or clothing to the person you told “God be with you, it means your faith is dead. Jesus said, I was hungry and you fed me, clothed me you did it to the least in society. You say the way to God is by faith alone but in James verse 25: 35 Jesus said, ‘I was hungry and you fed me; I was thirsty and you gave me food to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me water to drink I was stranger and you invite me in kept me warm protect me.A true story of a great good deed was by the King Hezekiah who bargained with God to live based on his good deeds. In Isaiah 38:1, Hezekiah was then sick unto death, so Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz came to him and said, God Said, prepare to die. Hezekiah in 2 Kings 20 and Isaiah 38 turned his face to the wall cried to God in said, LORD, I am good to You and walk uprightly. I do works of righteousness for God’s Glory. Please spare my life and let me live. And this Hezekiah’s prayer changed God’s Mind so God SAVED and extended Hezekiah’s life to another 15 years in the Bible. God told Hezekiah in 2Kings 16:20-21-22 to blend fig herbs to boil and drink, then to come into temple after 3 days to worship God. Hezekiah’s actions of good deeds pleased God, so God saved him. He sang songs of praise and gave thanks to God. In 2 Chronicles 32, 33, the rest of acts of Hezekiah’s good deeds written. The rest of history of Hezekiah’s life of loyal service, alms were memorials to God. As one of the best kings on the throne of Judah, he humbled himself to pray for God’s mercy and compassion. God answered, because the good deeds were done out of a pure righteous heart to God with good motive to bless people. Feed the hungry, help those in trouble then your light will shine out from the darkness around you will be as bright as noon in Isaiah 58:10.Bible good deeds highly rated by God so remembere, blessed, honoured, brings back to life. God is with people under all conditions. When a great leader for Israel was required the Lord provided from obscure source. In this study let us notice several things the presence of God with His children. Mordecai’s good deed saved the king’s life and rescued the Jews. Mordecai heard of a plot to kill the king so he reported it to Esther who told the king on Mordecai’s behalf. As seen here in image, Mordecai was used by God to save His people. Hebrews 6:10 says God WILL not forget your good deeds. God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love action you did to others on behalf of God. Trusting God FIRST and putting HIM in our lives FIRST so all things that we need added in Jesus Name. Jesus says all the works of love done for GOD’S GLORY in Christ and to saints of Christ to GLORY of GOD WILL not forget to reward endeavours of Godly good deeds of love actions.In Esther 2:21, Mordecai was sitting at the king’s gate, Bigthana and Teresh, two of the king’s officers who guarded doorway, became angry and conspired to assassinate King Xerxes. 22 Mordecai found out about the plot so told Queen Esther, who reported it to the king, gave credit to Mordecai. 23 The report was investigated and found to be true so two officials hanged on gallows. Mordecai’s good deed preserved the king’s life and saved Mordecai’s own life and empire from rebellion. All recorded in book of the annals in the presence of the king. Mordecai communicated again with the Queen Esther regarding Haman’s plan to annihilate Jews. Esther by her bold intervention, and fasting and prayer, scheme was frustrated. By distributing arms to Jews of Susa and other Persian cities to crush Haman’s militia.The King rescinded the edict to murder empire’s Jews. Mordeca promoted, honoured, raised to a high rank, donned in a royal gray cloak. Traitor Haman executed on hangman gallows he made in advance anticipating Mordecai’s demise.This deliverance wrought for the Jews to this day is celebrated the feast of Purim or “Lots.” Also, Mother Teresa wore a sari that cost $1 but clothed herself with good deeds done in Jesus’ name. Oprah Winfrey once gave money to people do good deed’s project to strangers and some turned out as long – term businesses. No good deed is ever big enough to be rated equal to Christ’s faith work of salvation. That is not a convenient excuse to refuse to obey God to give to others then condemn them for God loves a cheerful giver. Good deed giving is a choice and challenge because it involves doing without to help others. Society indulges, wealth as sign status of achievement. Yet nowhere in the Bible did God say salvation of soul for eternal life found in bank balance account. The god of mammon drives worldly system profit making to demise God’s creation. It does not matter destroyed or killed as long as company wins competition list as world’s richest. Yet is this really the only reason God made wealth?Jesus is touched by Godly good deeds of Martha and Mary went to raise friends Lazarus. Classic case of Martha arguing with her sister about faith and works so both are required to enter the Kingdom of God. Christians called to live between faith and works cannot enter Kingdom by merely believing for faith without is action dead. Or enter boasting of good deeds to show off for God says don’t let your left know what your right gives. If you do to receive praise of men you will receive no reward from God according to HIS words. Believe and act on what is believed as belief and action are equally important. What we are is determined by what we believe so what we believe is shown by our actions. Without faith it is impossible to please God and the faith without works is dead works alone does not count towards salvation.God says good deeds touches the hearts of unbelieving spouse. In 1 Corinthians 7:16 it is written, a spouse’s good deeds lifestyle of righteousness count towards salvation. The husband God will use you to save your wife? Everything should be done to promote harmony as far as truth and holiness will permit. We hear of good deeds in papers with people thanking total strangers for helping rescue loved one, recover lost property, or one thing or the other. The source of all wealth is from God the owner of all the silver and gold, and a cattle on a thousand hills.Some under- develop and exploit others gain undue advantage head start. Then turn around to insult the people whose wealth they usurp and flaunt it to taunt them. Check the world history of wealth creation by the guerrilla business tactics used to subdue and grab wealth. God is the Creator of all the wealth to please by treatment of His Creation. Christ Jesus says God’s Kingdom Best Way Business Principles is different from the world’s. Christian good deeds of righteousness is NOT works of the flesh, count towards salvation, deliverance and resurrection from premature death. Good deeds are relevant blessings so is not underrated. Who knows it might count towards your well- being, raise loved ones from death like Dorcas or Hezekiah. God saved the Jews through Mordecai and Esther. The Christian good deed is done to the LORD God without expecting the reward from recipient gains God’s Loyalty Reward Point. Christ’s Priceless Divine Exchange is the Ultimate Good Deed of God’s Good Deed. Salvation through Jesus Christ the author and finisher of faith, through His blood sacrifice paid price for all sin. God’s Salvation Plan shows Christ Loved, Adored, Revered, Honoured, God’s Good Deed Sacrifice. Blessed, highly favoured by God those who believe, receive and obey in Jesus Name. Secular system influence God’s people adapt contrary to God’s Way as Christ taught and preached in ministry. Subtle pressures to conform to a world system to engage in certain buying and selling method is not pleasing to God. So take good look at those modern trends, dynamic financial strategies and show me how God’s Will is fulfilled. Good deeds are God’s command blessing reward those who understand and live by Tabitha’s combined faith action.

Healing and Raising of Tabitha by Masolino da Panicale, 1425
Prophet Isaiah 6:1, the Lord is sitting on a throne high and lifted up, and the train of His robe fills temple. God’s Eternal Light is the Original Source of Flaming Radiating Fire described by prophets seeing God in Revelation 4:9. The living creatures give glory, honour and thanks to God Who sits on the throne, to Him Who lives forever and ever. “God reigns over the nations, God sits on His holy throne.” Psalms 47:8 God’s Light and Glory Shines through Christ’s Shining Light in us. God imparted all authority and power to Christ who in turn imparts the light of God into Christian believers.
Christian followers receive Christ’s Light in them so believers become the light of the world. Believers receive the gift of God’s Spirit through Jesus directly from the Almighty God Source of Consuming Fire. This is why on the day of Pentecost the Holy Spirit manifested as tongues of fire. The fiery Fire of God transforms and purified refining into pure diamonds. So the consuming fire of God destroys the dross to clean the transformed person refined into the child of God. Spiritually speaking works of darkness are exposed by the fiery light of God that burns the evil works of magic books, charms as done in Acts 19 when people were saved.
After having Christ’s Light in life we walk in the light of God bringing light into the darkness of the world. People see Light of Jesus in believers who have the Spirit of God as a flaming fire in them. God’s Spirit Fire is Powerful so scatters and destroys all evil forces of darkness trying to get near in Jesus Name so Thank God for our Victory.
Jeremiah 23:29 says God is a Consuming fire in believer’s mouth and God is an all-consuming fire stated in Numbers 11:1, Deuteronomy 5:25, Deuteronomy 9:3, 2 Kings 1:10, Psalm 50:3, Psalm 76:83, Isaiah 33:14, Luke 9:54, Hebrews 12:29, Revelation 11:5. God performs miracles, saves, heals through pastors, ministers, evangelists, workers and intercessors who are Hot Flaming Fires Conquering, Destroying, Burning evil to ashes and rubbles in Jesus Name.
God’s Word is Fire in our hearts, burning fire, shut in our bones full of all comfort of God’s Divine Presence and Protection in Jesus Name to defeat evil in Christ for us. God is Consuming Fire in believers Hot on Fire for God. God’s Consuming Fire Equips to Fight fire with God’s Fire Weapon pulling down strongholds Jesus Names. So believers are on fire for God’s Kingdom progress through eternal fire.
God’s Fire Fights enemy fire so Saints Catch God’s Holy Spirit Fire in Jesus Name for Victory. The fire power of God exceeds all other fires so Bible says the believer’s weapons are not carnal but spiritual pulling down of strongholds. Some put confidence in chariots and horses but Christian believers put their trust in God to save and deliver them in Jesus Name as vessels of honour.
God’s Eternal Presence is symbolized as sanctuary altar lamp. An everlasting light of eternal flame shines in Jewish and Christian places of worship not extinguished. The menorah candlestick represents almond tree in Exodus 25:33 and in Exodus 27:20-21 of the Torah as God commanded.
The children of Israel to bring pure oil olive for light for the lamp to burn always in the tabernacle of the congregation without the veil before the testimony. Aaron and his sons shall order it from evening to morning before the LORD as a statute for ever unto generations on the behalf of the children of Israel. On tops of trees, oil lamps were lit as God’s light to the world, like a city on a hill cannot be hidden. God’s Word is also like hammer breaking rocks in pieces. The Lord Jesus Christ, the perfect manifestation of Yahweh, is just and will rule the earth in righteousness during the Millennium.
HEAVENLY SUNSHINE: In Psalm 84:11, God is Sun and Shield Who gives grace, glory and good things to all who walk uprightly. The Sun is larger than all the planets put together so the Sun is powerful. As we truly comprehend how Powerful God is, we give Glory for The Magnificence of God. God gives eternal light to believers to help others walk uprightly. The Sun was created to “rule the day” in Genesis, 1:16, Psalm. 136:8. He shall be light of the morning, when the sun rises in morning without clouds in Joel 2:2. As Joseph saved the world from famine so Jesus saves souls from eternal death.
The first occasion in Scripture the Sun, Moon, Stars, came together is in Genesis 37:9 of Joseph’s dream. He related to his brothers and said, “Lo, I had a dream; behold, the sun and the moon and eleven stars bowed before me. It was when God revealed plans and purpose for Joseph’s future as leader as father represented the nation of Israel. The sun, moon and stars represented Israel and God’s prophetic gift for Joseph to be ruler in Egypt. Joseph’s family recognized and accepted God’s call upon Joseph like Christ.
The dream of Joseph represents the Messiah who would come to rule over Jacob, Rachel and descendants of Israel. Jacob came before Joseph in Egypt and 11 brothers bowed in worship. The sun represented Jacob, the moon, Rachel and the eleven stars, Joseph’s brothers who represented Israel. In revelation 12 Israel and the Messiah face satan’s attempt to stop the kingdom of God from being set up on the earth. And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, upon her head a crown of twelve stars. In Revelation 12.1 appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of 12 stars: Rev.12.2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. Rev.12.5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne in Rev.12.7 There was war in heaven: Michael and angels fought dragon (devil) in Rev. 12. 10. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. Rev.12.13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child Revelation 12.17. So devil is angry with the woman and declared war against her remnant faithful seed Israel Jews keeping God’s commandments and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. The woman represents true descendants of Israel and believers faithful to Jehovah Nissi. John sees the believers clothed with special revelation light from God reflecting His glory. The crown with 12 stars on her head is 12 apostles from 12 tribes of Israel who laid foundations for new covenant Church en-grafting gentiles and living in the City of Lights. In Matthew 9:2, Jesus said, Verily I say you, That you who followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. In Revelation 4:10 the 24 elders fall down before Him Who sits on the throne to worship Him Who lives forever and ever,“The 24 elders and 4 beasts fell down and worship God on the throne saying, Amen; Alleluia.” And cast their crowns before the throne saying, Thou hast maintained my just cause, Thou sit on the throne judging righteously in Psalms 9:4. The mystery of both Jews and Gentiles united in one body through Christ the second Adam in Ephesians 3:4,6, 27, means all are saved because Christ takes away sins through His New Covenant. The New Covenant applies to all believers, Jews and grafted Gentiles combined. God also appeared as pillar of fire at night to be with the Israelites during their journey in the wilderness.So significant Moses on Mount Horeb saw the baffling sight of bush burning, but not consumed by the flames and the angel of the Lord “appeared to Moses. Flames of fire” in Exodus 3:2 means long- lasting fire kindled by God. I AM appeared to him in a blazing fire bush that burned, and yet did not burn away; an emblem of church in bondage. God was concerned for suffering so explained He had seen the misery of His chosen people, the Hebrews in Egypt held as slaves. God came down from heaven to rescue them so hand picked Moses to carry out the task of exodus of people. And Moses parted Red Sea, Moses saw God face to face to receive on Mountain 10 commandments. God I AM appeared to Moses in a fire but the tree did not burn. This precise location is visited daily by people from all over the world.History is incomplete without Moses who inspires us with his faith as we are awestruck at what he did for God but Moses was just a regular person. There are so many true living history stories of fire in the Bible. Those who accept Christ are purified by the fire to be worthy of God’s Presence. The depth and breadth of God’s knowledge interpretation inspire us to study the jewels of God’s treasured words to continue to follow the values that make believers a light to the nations. Those without Christ are burned, scarred, ultimately consumed by the flames of the world and perpetual hellfire like Sodom and Gomorrah. Not so the children of the King of Kings.
The effect of such heat on Christians is purification, not destruction. Moses saw the power of the Most High God in a blazing bush. Christians have to witness to others to live in the flames of the world without being consumed by them. Though pelted by fiery darts, our joy remains intact; our peace remains in place; and our future is assured. Standing undaunted amid the flames that surround us is a powerful testimony to others. Daniel and his two fellows withstood the heat of Nebuchadnezzar’s furnace untouched. We do the same today in many places and circumstance.
Moses who saw the consuming fire God and Messianic Jews are used by God to impact the world so Israel is being saved with believing Gentiles. Zechariah 8:23 says, in those days, 10 men from the nations will grasp the garment of a Jew, saying, Let us go with you for we have heard that God is with you. The Messianic Jews are a Light to the nations through Christ’s salvation, the Word of God and fulfilling the great commission. Elijah won great victory by consuming fire from heaven upon God’s sacrifice on Mount Carmel to restore salvation to God’s people, so Elijah will be active again in end-time prophecy. Elijah and Moses will return to fulfill end-time prophecy. In 2 Kings 1:9-18 Elijah told Ahaziah’s captain of 50 with fifty, king will die because he consulted Beelzebul instead of asking God to heal him.
Elijah told them, “If I am a man of God, let fire come down from heaven and consume you and your fifty.” Fire came down from heaven and consumed them.11 So he sent another captain of fifty with his fifty who also died by fire.'” So the third Captain and his 50 were humble, so Elijah went to see the king who still died for consulting idols which God forbade unlike King Hezekiah’s life extended. Elijah called fire from heaven, to consume haughty, daring sinners; not to secure himself, but to prove his mission, and to reveal the wrath of God from heaven, against the ungodliness and unrighteousness of men. Jesus the Saviour did not allow the disciples to do same in Luke 9:54 because of God’s grace, mercy, glory, not own reputation. The Lord judges men’s practice principles accordingly third captain received mercy of God and Elijah. The Christian walk with God is like bonfire of righteous living light and warmth, for God is light (John 1). A complete separation from God means darkness of hopping between heathen practices so must choose to serve Master God.
Elijah faced challenges of dark moment of ministry as a direct consequence of winning the battle. Elijah transported by God’s Chariot of fire provided went alive into God’s Glorious presence of eternal light in heaven. God instructed others to continue God’s work as Elijah left into God’s Glory.
Sunshine is good for warmth, supply of vitamins A,D,K, but staying in the sun beyond minimum daily time required to produce vitamins is not recommended. So skin is protected by clothing or natural sun protective substances.
We remember practical Bible study by sharing and eating freshly baked sunshine biscuits during fellowship.
