Confidentiality for Pastors - A New Pathway to Spiritual Equilibrium
"Let My People Go"

Exodus 5:1-2And afterward Moses and Aaron went in, and told Pharaoh, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Let my people go, that they may hold a feast unto me in the wilderness. And Pharaoh said, Who is the Lord, that I should obey his voice to let Israel go? I know not the Lord, neither will I let Israel go.
Who is the Lord? Pharaoh wanted to know in his unparalleled arrogance. Initially, Pharaoh was bold and sure of himself, after all he was the ruler of all Egypt. But God is the Creator of the universe and everything therein; every man, woman and child belongs to him. We all owe our existence to God. Consequently, we are his; the father who sent his son to die on the cross of salvation to redeem us to himself. We are indeed bought with the price of the innocent shed blood of the Christ. 

If we have dedicated our lives to the Lord by crucifying our flesh to the point that our spirit rules over our flesh, then we look to God as our Father protector. Because he will bring us into the circle of his will and protect us from our enemies, which are, in fact, his enemies. Any one who comes against us for any reason also finds themselves at war with God. To be at war with the God who created you is a seriously foolish position in which to be found.

Nevertheless, that is the position where all your enemies find themselves, the enemies of the lord face divine recompense. When God's timing collides with the recompense of sin, disaster in the lives of your enemies is the consequence of their audacity, stupidity really.

So it behooves us to wait on the timing of God and endure the assault of our enemies against us because it will, no doubt, be the making of us into vessels fit for the master's use. He cannot use us if we have not done what it takes to crucify the flesh, if we have not denied ourselves, taken up our own specific cross of affliction and decided within the depths of our being to follow Jesus through the fires of suffering, want, need, persecution and ostracism, because as Christians we have decided to live our lives according to the will and word of God.

Those who baptize themselves in sin and wallow in the depths of degradation, hate Christians because we are a constant reminder of what they have done with their lives, which is contrary to the will and word of God. They do not want to be constantly reminded of their sins by your presence and the witness of the holy Creator God that your life represents.

The truth of the matter is this, the hatred directed at you for being a Christian is actually self-hatred misdirected at you because in their hearts they know right from wrong, but refuse to acknowledge the truth of the reality of their lives that is headed for divine retribution, destruction, and finally eternal judgment.
Because of the haters of God and their inner hatred of themselves they attach themselves to Christians in an effort to bring them down into the devouring fields of destruction, much like animals hunting their prey specifically to eat their flesh. Thus animalistic tendencies are within the framework of evil doers, because in the pursuit of the perverted pleasures of sin, they have consequently loss their humanity, which would dictate to their conscience what is right and what is wrong. 

Sin having seared their conscience, they have become lost in the darkness of their minds, and cannot adequately perceive their true condition. They cannot see what is perfectly obvious to those who have maintained their ability to reason, and have not sacrificed that aspect of their humanity to the trap of sin's devastation.

The evil doers, like leeches, hold on to Christians with a vice-like grip, refusing to let go because to let go means that they have to face the truth of themselves by acknowledging your truth, that being, that as a Christian you are God's child, consequently you cannot be separated from him as long as you live your life according to his word and his will. This is all that we must do to maintain God's protective covering. For he will trap our enemies and cut the cords of hatred from off our lives with the sharp, piercing word of Truth.

If indeed your time of suffering has come to an end, and God is finished using your enemies to train and teach you how to walk before him, then they can no longer hold on to his child, which was only meant for a limited season that God uses to try and test you to ascertain whether or not your love for him has strengthened to the point where he can now trust you, and use you to bring his kingdom into a right adjustment within the parameters of this finite world.

"LET MY PEOPLE GO" is God's mantra to the wicked of this world, and he has not changed; destruction will inevitably follow disobedience to his will and his word. The wicked can only hold on to you and cause havoc in your lives but for so long. 

There will always come a point in time where the barriers to their unrelenting assault on your life has been raised by God, and woe to those who continue to walk past those barriers into the holy of holies bringing the filth of their lives in the presence of the holy God, who is living within you by his Holy Spirit. What then are the consequences of ignoring the presence of the holy God?
Just as God taught Pharaoh a lesson in who he was, so will he teach your enemies the same thing. God destroyed Egypt for their disobedience. He made a simple request, "LET MY PEOPLE GO", but Pharaoh refused to listen to reason. It was God's ultimate desire to make a name for himself in the world, and he used the hardness of Pharaoh's heart to do so, and in fact, after witnessing the utter destruction of Egypt, Pharaoh, no doubt, wanted to let Israel go, but God himself hardened his heart so that he would not let his son go, his goal being that of the destruction of Egypt, and to make a name for himself in the world.

God does not change, so if your enemies are tenacious in the face of their own dwindling lives caught up in a whirlwind of destruction by the hand of an angry God, then it is to make a name for himself in the world, so that the wicked will know that he is the Lord God, the Creator of all that is, and everything and everyone do indeed belong to him and is subject to his holy will.
