Exod 4:12: “Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say.” (NIV)
Luke 12:12: “for the Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what you should say.” (NIV)
If ever there were two verses that spoke so definitively of the fact that Yeshua/Jesus is the God of the Torah; these two are this. In the first; the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob instructs the great Jewish prophet Moses and in the second; Yeshua/Jesus instructs His disciples the exact message. The Holy Spirit is discussed in the Tenakh as well as the New Testament.
Ps 51:11: “Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me.” (NIV)
We as believers have the Holy Spirit to speak through us the same way as did Moses. God left Moses in the wilderness for 40 years to cleanse him of Egypt or the world and its ways. This way he was an empty, cleansed vessel to be filled with the Holy Spirit to be used by God. Our wilderness time is a time to empty us of the world or past ways so as to be filled by the Holy Spirit to be used by God. His preparation time is detailed and often difficult; however the adversities of the wilderness do not compare to the work He has planned for us and the glory in His name. Think of it as boot camp preparing us for the spiritual and worldly battles for souls. Rom 8:18 “I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” (NIV)
We have the greatest gift given to man; the Holy Spirit! God, Himself abiding in us. John 17:26 “I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.” (NIV)
So whatever adversity you are facing today; consider the fact that the living God is in you and will speak through you in all situations with wisdom power and love. 2 Tim 1:7: “For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.” (NIV)
When you wake up tomorrow; go with this knowledge that you have these resources inside yourself. Go with humility, confidence and above all the love that is from above knowing you received your victory 2000 years ago on that tree. You are chosen by the creator of this world for a purpose. John 15:16: “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit– fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.” (NIV); and II Th 2:13: “But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers loved by the Lord, because from the beginning God chose you to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth.” (NIV)
Father: I pray that the revelation of who, these brothers and sisters reading this, are, will penetrate every fiber of their being and encourage them through the wilderness time; to strengthen them in their ordeals and to take them to their destinies with the knowledge that: I Jn 4:4 — “You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” (NIV)
Rejoice in this truth because Yeshua/Jesus overcame for you that day. John 16:33: “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (NIV)
I loose the presence of the Holy Spirit on every person reading this to fill them with peace, comfort, hope and the strength to fight the good fight for their souls and the salvation of those they will touch in Yeshua/Jesus’ name. Amen!!
