Confidentiality for Pastors - A New Pathway to Spiritual Equilibrium

















Out of Egypt

Exodus 3:1-10
Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb. And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed. And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt. And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I. 

And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground. Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God.And the LORD said, I have surely seen the affliction of my people which are in Egypt, and have heard their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know their sorrows; And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites. Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel is come unto me: and I have also seen the oppression wherewith the Egyptians oppress them. Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt.
Symbolically speaking, Egypt is a place of great pain and suffering, both physically and emotionally. Just as Moses was sent by God to deliver his people out of Egypt, God has sent Jesus to deliver his people out of the hand of their oppressors; the sons and daughters of Satan.

Consequently, Egypt then becomes the place of our trials and tribulations, a temporary phase where preparation occurs for the purpose of God in our lives. Egypt is not a pleasant place to be, but nevertheless, it is a place of the purification and purging of our eternal souls, a prerequisite for effectively serving the Lord and carrying out his work in this temporary slot of infinity called time.

Our trials and tribulations causes us to turn towards God with our all in hope of deliverance, because there is no one else with power over our enemies that can successfully deliver us out of the hand of our oppressors but the living God.

If we try to escape our destiny, our future, our purpose by substituting sexual promiscuousness, or drugs in its place, we only collide with the brick walls of God's unyielding will, until he surrounds us with unpalatable choices, which brings us to our knees before him in humility and contriteness. We can continue down the road of stupidity and disobedience until our very lives are in jeopardy, or we can turn towards God and embrace his divine will for our lives, that for which he gave us life in the first place.

The trial of our faith is always by fire, as we find ourselves in difficult situations with horrendous choices laid out before us, painting a crystal clear picture of our destiny should we continue to walk down the well traveled pathway to destruction, or an alternative view of our future should we decide to live in the fragrance of God's ever enduring love, by baptizing ourselves in his holy will for our lives, realizing that we were bought with a price, that our lives are not our own, but in fact belong to God lock, stock and barrel, through the shed blood of Jesus Christ. 
A question then arises, "Do we love God more than we love ourselves?" It is imperative that that question be answered, "Yes!" Upon that one critical answer pivots our entire existence within the parenthesis of time. Any other answer dooms us to an eternal hell where Satan, a.k.a. Lucifer, and all his disciples will eventually dwell.

If we love God then we also trust him with our lives to remake us into his image, to transform us for his purpose, and to send us into the very heart of Satan's lair of perverseness, and turn the world of evil upside down in the name of Jesus, the living Word of God.

If we love God then we deny ourselves, and take up our cross and follow him into the depths of hell, and out on the other side where the angels will minister to our every need, and then are we ready to perform his will in our lives. It's called the dying effect, where we die to our will, we die to our flesh, and we make the decision to live for Christ and him only, until we obtain the fulness of our purpose on this earth, and transition into the eternal existence, shedding our temporal bodies and inhabiting our immortal bodies set aside for us by God before the worlds were created.

Therefore we must endure the spiritual transformation of our soul and the natural transformation of our physicality. Once we endure the transformation of our soul into vessels fit for the master's use, it becomes apparent in our natural demeanor because we have been instilled with God's purpose, and our success is assured in fulfilling his will for our lives. Purpose must therefore be birthed according to God's timing. We cannot run ahead in time because God perfected purpose is time-related. There is a season for all things to come to pass, for God will not allow it to be otherwise. His will is supreme. His will supersedes everything and everyone captured in the embrace of finite time. 

Where can we go where God is not? What can we do that is a secret to Him? What hiding place can we locate and he not be there when we arrive?
Once, like Moses,when we receive our holy commission from God, which will only come through obedience, faithfulness and the wholehearted yielding our lives to God in complete trust, we can then embark on the journey of our lives towards the fulfillment of our destiny, which is intertwined with the love of God in the deepest depths of our hearts.

Deliverance can now occur because our souls are light due to the purification and purging of our will, and our feet are steadily marching towards our promised land which is constructed upon the indelible Word of God.

God then challenges our assigned taskmasters, a.k.a., the sons and daughters of Satan, to let us go and serve him in the wilderness of his holy will. And know this, that they who will not let you go, or cease trying to sink your soul into the mires of hell's perverse devastation, are indeed at war with God, and as the historical Egyptians can attest from their eternal abode in hell, that it is a mistake to try and countermand the Word and will of God. In so doing the walls of water are anxiously awaiting their destined doom.
