I was half awake and half asleep from midnight September 30th to about 3:30 AM on October 1st, 2012.
The “DREAM” I was having is how God has been telling Israel that He was sending a “DELIVERER” to them to save them from their bondage and deliver them out of that bondage, lead them through the “WILDERNESS” and to a “PROMISED LAND”, and God would provide for them all along the way.
The rest of the “DREAM” involved God telling both Israel and the rest of the world (GENTILES) that He was sending a second “DELIVERER” who would also point people to the “PROMISED LAND” and who would provide for those who would follow….all they would need to get through the wilderness called life.
I did not have the answer (BEFORE) as to why Jesus said, while talking to the leaders of the nation of Israel, "Do not think that I shall accuse you to the Father; there is one who accuses you—Moses, in whom you trust.” John 5:45 - NOW I KNOW THE ANSWER!
GOD WAS TELLING ISRAEL AND US - " A DELIVERER WILL COME" A “SAVIOR” – A “RESCUER”…”ONE WHO RESTORES” –
A “MESSIAH” WILL ALSO COME - “Traditional and current Jewish Orthodox thought have mainly held that the Messiah will be the anointed one (messiah), descended from his father through the Davidic line of King David via Solomon , who will gather the Jews back into the Land of Israel, usher in an era of peace, build the Third Temple, have a male heir and re-institute the Sanhedrin, among other things.”
The Bible agrees: A “MESSIAH” would come – first as “DELIVERER”…and THEN AS “Annointed King” GOD HAS BEEN SAYING THIS THROUGHOUT THE HEBREW BIBLE (O.T.) AND IN THE GREEK NEW TESTAMENT.
I WANT YOU TO SEE THE “SIMILARITIES” OF MOSES – THE “DELIVERER” AND JESUS – THE “DELIVER AND LATER MESSIAH”.
Exodus 1 - VERSE 22: "And Pharaoh charged all his people, saying, Every son that is born ye shall cast into the river, and every daughter ye shall save alive." PHAROAH DID THIS BECAUSE SATAN WANTED TO PREVENT GOD FROM BRINGING A "DELIVERER" - FOR ISRAEL. MOSES CAME OUT OF EGYPT.
KING HEROD ORDERED THE DEATH OF ALL MALES IN BETHLEHEM WHO WERE UNDER TWO YEARS OF AGE - IN AN ATTEMT BY SATAN - TO PREVENT GOD FROM BRINGING A "DELIVERER" TO EARTH - FOR ISRAEL AND ALL PEOPLE.
I NEVER SAW THIS BEFORE, BUT GOD SAID, IN OLD TESTAMENT PROPHECY: HOSEA 11:1 - "When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt." Some thought that this "son from Egypt" was referring to Moses. That asumption is wrong.
BECAUSE SATAN ATTEMPTED TO KILL JESUS - GOD INSTRUCTED JOSEPH AND MARY TO TAKE BABY JESUS TO EGYPT! - MATTHEW 2:15 - "And JESUS was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet (HOSEA), saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son."
EXODUS 2:1-2 -"And there went a man of the house of Levi, and took to wife a daughter of Levi. And the woman conceived, and bare a son: and when she saw him that he was a goodly child, she hid him three months." THIS SON'S NAME - FROM THE TRIBE OF LEVI (WHO WOULD BECOME THE PRIESTS OUT OF ALL TWELVE TRIBES OF ISRAEL) WAS MOSES.
THE TRIBE OF LEVI (SEE HEBREWS 7)- WOULD BECOME THE PRIESTLY TRIBE AND FROM THEM WOULD COME THE LAWS OF GOD – INCLUDING THE “TEN COMMANDMENTS”. JESUS WOULD COME OUT OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH...AND NOT OUT OF THE TRIBE WHO WOULD ISSUE THE LAWS OF GOD FOR MAN.
THE LAWS CONDEMN AND COVICT.....AND THEY WERE NOT PERFECTION. JESUS WAS PERFECTION, AND WOULD BRING GRACE - NOT LAW TO THE WORLD. This is why Jesus could not come out of the tribe of Levi, even though Jesus is our High Priest. He did not come to condemn us under the Laws of Moses, He came to offer us His grace....as a free gift, so we could be "DELIVERED", restored, rescued, saved from the bondage - of sin.
MOSES WAS NOT CAST INTO THE RIVER. HE WAS GENTLY PLACED INTO A WATER-PROOF BASKET, AND LATER "DISCOVERED" BY PHARAOH'S DAUGHTER....AND SHE HIRED MOSES' BIRTH MOTHER TO NURSE AND RAISE HIM BECAUSE MOSES WOULD BE DESTINED, BY GOD, TO BECOME A "DELIVERER".
GOD ALLOWED MARY...AN EARTHLY WOMAN, TO BARE AND RAISE AND NURTURE HIS SON....A "DELIVERER".
MOSES KILLED AN EGYPTIAN – THEN, HE HID OUT FOR 40 YEARS…THEN STARTED HIS MISSION AS “DELIVERER”.
When we see the number "40" in the Bible, it means a "time of testing".
JESUS WAS USHERED INTO THE WILDERNESS FOR FORTY (40) DAYS...JUST PRIOR TO HIS MINISTRY AS "DELIVERER".
MOSES WAS USHERED INTO THE MOUNTAIN TO SPEAK WITH GOD WHO GAVE HIM THE TEN COMMANDMENTS – 40 DAYS....just before his mission would be set by God.
EXODUS 2:23 - ISRAEL CRIED - FROM THEIR ANGUISH AT BONDAGE IN EGYPT...AND GOD HEARD THEIR CRY. And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto God by reason of the bondage."
GOD WANTED TO FREE ISRAEL FROM THEIR BONDAGE....SO HE SET UP THEIR "DELIVERANCE"- THROUGH MOSES.
WE LIVE IN "BONDAGE" SLAVERY - TO THE WORLD TODAY AND THE BONDAGE IS SIN....WE WERE ALL BORN INTO SIN SINCE ADAM. GOD WANTED TO FREE US (JEW AND GENTILE) FROM THE "BONDAGE", SO GOD SET UP OUR "DELIVERANCE" THROUGH JESUS.
IN EXODUS 3, GOD TOLD ISRAEL, "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" - THE "PROMISED LAND.
DEUTERONOMY 6:10-12 –"When the LORD your God brings you into the land he swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to give you a land with large, flourishing cities you did not build, houses filled with all kinds of good things you did not provide, wells you did not dig, and vineyards and olive groves you did not plant—then when you eat and are satisfied, be careful that you do not forget the LORD, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of BONDAGE."
GOD WANTED TO DELIVER US (AND ISRAEL AND ANYONE WHO WOULD FOLLOW HIS "DELIVERER" – JESUS), INTO A "PROMISED LAND"...HEAVEN....WHICH CONTAINS - CITIES AND HOUSES AND RIVERS THAT WE DID NOT BUILD...AND PROVIDE FOOD WHICH WE DID NOT GROW....
JOHN 14:2 - "In My Father’s house are many mansions; - if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you"
JESUS IS PREPARING THIS "PROMISED CITY WHICH WE DID NOT BUILD."
MOSES SUGGESTED THAT ISRAEL WOULD NOT BELIEVE THAT GOD SET HIM UP TO BE THEIR “DELIVERER” Exodus 4:1-9 – “And Moses answered God and said, But, behold, they (the Nation of Israel) will not believe me, nor hearken unto my voice: for they will say, The Lord hath not appeared unto thee.
Knowing that Israel would only respond to “SIGNS & WONDERS” – God had moses throw down the shepher'd crook, or rod or staff to the ground. It turned into a snake. God instructed Moses to pick the snake up by the tail. It turned back into a rod. He then had Moses thrust his hand into his clothing.
"Now, take your hand out", said God. It was covered with leprosy. "Put it back into your clothing, and take it out again", said God. It was clean this time. Things like those two signs would be used to show Israel that Moses was sent by God Himself to be their "DELIVERER", savior, rescuer, restorer.
MANY JEWS BELIVED MOSES – WHEN HE FIRST USED SIGNS AND WONDERS, BUT – OVER TIME, FAILED TO BELIEVE THAT GOD SENT HIM AS “DELIVERER”. AT TIMES, THEY EVEN CALLED FOR HIS DEATH.
JESUS…THE NEW TESTAMENT “DELIVERER” ALSO HAD TO USE “SIGNS AND WONDERS” OR THE JEWS WOULD NOT BELIEVE HIM. HE USED THEM, AND MANY BELIEVED, BUT MOST DID NOT BELIEVE…AND THEY CALLED FOR HIS DEATH..JUST LIKE THEY DID WITH MOSES.
THE WILDERNESS IS WHERE THE WHOLE FIRST GENERATION OF ISRAELITES STAYED – BECAUSE THEY WOULD NOT BELIEVE NOR TRUST GOD…..EVEN WHEN SEEING MIRACLE AFTER MIRACLE. WE ARE LIKE THAT TODAY!
SO, WHY DO WE FIGHT GOD EVERY STEP OF THE WAY - LIKE THE ISRAELITES DID?
Deuteronomy 8:2 –“Remember how the LORD your God led you all the way in the desert these forty years, to humble you and to test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands."
DON’T WE KNOW THAT WE CANNOT PICK UP 300 POUNDS –AT FIRST? The weight lifter starts with 20 pounds, then graduates - over time, to heavier weights and uses exercise strategies to get to the goal weight to lift. God wants us to strengthen our "spiritual muscles" by getting into His Word. Then, over time, we will have ful comprehension of what His message to us is.
THIS IS A MYSTERY TO ME AS TO WHY ANYONE WOULD “TAKE A CHANCE” AND CAUSE THEIR DESTINY TO BE ONE WHERE WE DIE..AND OUR SPIRIT SPENDS THE NEXT ONE THOUSAND YEARS ON THIS SAME PLANET IN A PLACE CALLED HADES?
HADES IS A “HOLDING CELL” FOR THOSE WHO REJECT GOD’S PLAN OF “DELIVERANCE”……AND THEN THOSE WHO HAVE NOT TRUSTED GOD’S WORD AND HIS PROPHECY WILL HAVE TO FACE HIM FOR JUDGMENT - WHY do we not choose to listen to the "deliverers that God sent to us?
ISRAEL FAILED TO BELIEVE GOD WHEN HE SENT MOSES TO DELIVER THEM FROM BONDAGE AND LEAD THEM INTO A LAND FLOWING WITH MILK AND HONEY…THAT GENERATION NEVER MADE IT DUE TO THEIR LACK OF FAITH, BELIEF AND TRUST IN GOD'S WORDS..AND THEY DIDN'T BELIEVE IN SPITE OF THE SIGNS AND WONDERS GOD CREATED IN FRONT OF THEIR EYES.
JOSHUA, THE EVENTUAL LEADER OF THE SECOND GENERATION OF ISRAELITES SAID, "AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSEHOLD, WE CHOOSE TO SERVE THE LORD”. HE AND THE 2ND GENERATION OF ISRAEL MADE IT INTO THAT LAND…AND WERE HAPPY!
“MESSIAH” (as promised from the beginning of Israel) IS COMING BACK - TO REIGN AS KING -1000 YEARS.. THEREFORE, “MESSIAH” IS KEEPING HIS PROMISE.
TO reiterate what I said in a previous message, how this wil lunfold is as follows:
1. Israel strikes Iran and devastation follows.
2. Israel ejects all Arabs from Israel.
3. Israel builds the Temple on top of Mt. Zion.
4. Israel signs a "peace Treaty" with Arabs.
5. Isreal finishes the Holy Temple in 3.5 years.
6. The Arabs break the treaty with Israel.
7. Arabs surround Jerusalem.
8. The Holy Temple is desecrated.
9. Jesus appears in the clouds for His saints.
10.All hel breaks loose upon the earth.
11.144,000 Jews preach Jesus to those who remain.
12.In 3.5 more years, Jesus returns - as Messiah.
13.Satan is bound for 1000 years in hades.
14.Satan is let loose after 1000 years of peace.
15.China & Russia descend upon Israel.
16.God wipes them all out in Armagedden Valley.
17.The Great White Throne Judgment takes place.
18.God condemns Satan, his angels & and all those who rejected Christ as LOrd to the Lake of Fire in hell.
19.God burns the earth with fervent heat.
20.God lets down New Jerusalem to the new earth.
21.God reigns with His saints forever.
CHINA AND RUSSIA COME DOWN FROM THE NORTH TO DESTROY JESUS AND HIS FOLLOWERS….THE "GREAT BATTLE IN THE VALEY OF ARMAGEDDEN” TAKES PLACE WHEREIN GOD WILL DESTROY ALL OF THESE ENEMIES BY RAINING FIRE DOWN UPON THEM….AND THEN – JESUS AND HIS FOLLOWERS WILL GO BACK TO HEAVEN FOR A SHORT TIME.
GOD DESTROYS THE EARTH BY FIRE – THEN…. HE CALLS EVERYONE (SATAN, ANGELS, PEOPLE IN HADES) TO HIMSELF….THEN…THE JUDGMENT……DETERMINED BY THE "LAW OF MOSES" WILL TAKE PLACE. ALL WHO HAVE LIVED BY THE LAW, AND HAVE REJECTED WHAT CHRIST DID ON THE CROSS, WILL BE SENTENCED...TO THE "LAKE OF FIRE" WHICH EXISTS 4,000 FEET BELOW ANYONE ON EARTH'S FEET.
DO YOU REALLY STILL WANT TO TAKE THE CHANCE THAT GOD’S WORD IS NOT TRUE?
DO YOU STILL WANT TO BELIEVE THE SAME LIE FROM SATAN WHO ASKED EVE, “DO YOU CHOOSE TO BELIEVE GOD – OR ME?”
CAN YOU SEE HOW GOD HAS BEEN TRYING TO TELL ALL OF US, REGARDLESS OF OUR RELIGION, THAT HE WANTS TO GIVE US HIS BEST – NOW…AND WHEN WE DIE?
HE SENT A DELIVER – MOSES….
HE SENT A DELIVERER….JESUS….
HIS MESSAGE HAS BEEN THE SAME THROUGHOUT HISTORY…REPENT AND BE SAVED….OR PERISH IN A PLACE CALLED THE “LAKE OF FIRE”.
