Deu 8:1 All the commandments which I command thee this day shall ye observe to do, that ye may live, and multiply, and go in and possess the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers.
Deu 8:2 And thou shalt remember all the way which the LORD thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no.
Deu 8:3 And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.
Deu 8:4 Thy raiment waxed not old upon thee, neither did thy foot swell, these forty years.
Deu 8:5 Thou shalt also consider in thine heart, that, as a man chasteneth his son, so the LORD thy God chasteneth thee.
Deu 8:6 Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to fear him.
Heb 3:7 Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice,
Heb 3:8 Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:
Heb 3:9 When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years.
Heb 3:10 Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways.
Heb 3:11 So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.)
Heb 3:12 Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.
Heb 3:13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.
Heb 3:14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;
Heb 3:15 While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.
Heb 3:16 For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses.
Heb 3:17 But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness?
Heb 3:18 And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?
Heb 3:19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.
The great deliverance of the Hebrews from 430 years of slavery under Egypt, had come. The parting of the red sea, and on to the promise land.
The first Exodus, the result we read in the N.T. and O.T. they could not enter the promise land because of, tempting the lord, having a hard heart and unbelief, it was a heart condition. What should have been a short travel ending up in a 40 year cycle of walking in circles till the first generation died. What a sad story. 100% complete deliverance and it ended up in unbelief.
So how will you handle the coming second Exodus? Your first exodus is your salvation, as the red sea and coming out of the world Egypt stands for and means our salvation experience. Crossing the Jordan under Joshua is the prelude to the filling of the Holy Spirit.
My point is, the actual coming second Exodus coming for the lords holy remnant. It will be in many places, it will be one of divine provision, but as we read it was a trial of their faith, even the manna was a trial, why? The manna was a one staple food that had all they needed to survive, in the coming second exodus it will be no different, it will be a test of our faithfulness as we live on little, no new cloths, no makeup, no nail jobs, no 3 meals a day, no fancy anything, it will be hard, or it would not be called a test.
This is why many are being tested so hard now, it is like a good student that studies hard before a test and gets a great grade. We are to be reading the word, enduring the pre -test-test, of the second Exodus so we can by the lords grace ace the test. The ones not in spiritual preparation, not watching unto prayer, not feeding on the text book, the holy bible, will be the first to tempt the lord, and will not enter the place the lord has for them.
Look, the good days are over for many, and soon all, but the good old days are gone. Trials, temptations, tribulations, hardships, poverty, are all on many peoples plate, but do not be discouraged, it is the lords will you pass his holy test, daily, so you will pass the coming test of the second Exodus.
Let everything that is happening to you build your faith muscles for that is the reason for spiritual workouts, to build spiritual muscles. We are learning to contend with the footmen, so we can contend with the coming horsemen. This will not be easy; the days ahead will be very hard. The last great depression was hard, this will be much harder, because we are in the last days. We are in days no other people have ever been in, it will be different, and we will travel unfamiliar territory, lit. And spiritually, and none of us have experienced the destruction by judgment of our country.
That is a lot of manna needed LOL.
We must learn in the now to do without, buy only what you need, concentrate on needs not wants, and learn to deny self and get on your face before the lord daily, there is no other way to prepare.
2013 Jan 1, as I wrote will be the starting gun on a whole and new type of race, a race running into Judgments, this has never happened to many, that’s why it is new, we have always ran the Christian race as Paul said, this will not change, but racing towards creature comforts being lost, racing towards Judgment is unknown. We can know in advance, it is upon us, what we do not know is what will each persons reaction be to it.
The second Exodus will separate the boys from the men and the women from the girls, it will be hard, taxing, at times fearful, but we have the victory and that is all that happens. The coming second Exodus will start in 2013, this I believe, all will change, everything will be different, but we are on the solid rock and we will not be moved spiritually. We may die, but not spiritually, I know in this second Exodus I am learning from the first one, I want to enter the promise land, heaven, do you?
Start your preparations now, and prepare spiritually this is always number one. I want to make it through this second and last great Exodus to the ultimate promise land, I pray and hope you do.
The lord layed on my heart to ask anyone that needs prayer comment, or send by email and you will get fervent prayer, not a name and situation on a dead prayer list, so please send your prayer request today, also pray for me and this ministry. Thank you and have a great day.
