The Joy Of Our Salvation, How To Overcome Anything

Note; Of late the lord has told me to feed the remnant and that I have been striving to do.

I am starting with instruction from the OT, read and you will see why.

Exo 16:1 And they took their journey from Elim, and all the congregation of the children of Israel came unto the wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after their departing out of the land of Egypt.

Exo 16:2 And the whole congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness:

Exo 16:3 And the children of Israel said unto them, Would to God we had died by the hand of the LORD in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the flesh pots, and when we did eat bread to the full; for ye have brought us forth into this wilderness, to kill this whole assembly with hunger.

Exo 16:4 Then said the LORD unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no.

Exo 16:5 And it shall come to pass, that on the sixth day they shall prepare that which they bring in; and it shall be twice as much as they gather daily.

Exo 16:6 And Moses and Aaron said unto all the children of Israel, At even, then ye shall know that the LORD hath brought you out from the land of Egypt:

Exo 16:7 And in the morning, then ye shall see the glory of the LORD; for that he heareth your murmurings against the LORD: and what are we, that ye murmur against us?

Note Vrs 4-What was the proving-testing about, let us see;


Exodus 16:4

Exo_16:4. Then said the Lord unto Moses— This was, no doubt, in answer to Moses's application by prayer to the Lord on account of these murmurings; when Jehovah was graciously pleased to promise them bread from heaven, sent down in daily showers, to keep the people in perpetual dependence upon him; and to prove whether, under this daily admonition from heaven, they would walk in his law, or not. We are taught to maintain this dependence upon God by praying to him for our daily bread.


Exodus 16:4

That I may prove them - The trial consisted in the restriction to the supply of their daily wants.


that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law or no; by this single instance of their obedience to his will in going out every morning to gather their bread, that should be rained for them, he proposed to try and prove their obedience to his law in all other respects; what regard would be had to it when it should be given, and what might be expected from them, and likewise whether they would depend upon his providence in this case also.

Note in vrs 5, it only took one and a half months for the people to mummer, complain, lose their faith.
This teaches us, it does not take long for our faith to fail, and start to complain, or mummer concerning our current lot in life.

WE must learn from this as the NT teaches us to do so, on this portion of the bible and the OT as a whole.

Many Christians think we are only to study the NT, this is 100% wrong the NT teaches we are indeed to learn from the OT.

2Ti 3:15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

2Ti 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

2Ti 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

We see from this, Paul said All scripture, OT as they had no bibles, Apostles letters-Epistles, and Verbal Teaching, the key to the use of the OT is Timothy was brought up from his youth by the scripture, this was before he was a Christian, so all the bible OT and NT, in this case I speak of the OT, ALL is good, not as just a history book but for, Doctrine, Reproof, Correction, Instruction, In Righteousness.

For a more plain teaching from the NT on the use of the OT we read;

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.

OK, so we see we are to use the OT as much more than a history book.

My message is on falling away, losing faith in hard times.

The Jews had seen mighty miracles, signs, wonders and yet in one and a half months lost it all, this happens now days.

This is why we read in the NT. The Jews seek after a sign and shall not have one, the Greeks seek after wisdom. Jesus did many signs and wonders, as did the Apostles, so no more sign was needed aside from Jesus rose from the dead and is the way, truth and life. This teaches us how we need more of the manifest presence of Jesus our lord, our intercessor, our King, our salvation, and in salvation we are to have Joy for salvation, if you have nothing else to have joy about in hard times, your salvation eternal life is one thing to have Joy on no matter what, the antidote is to return to our first love, doing this we will have the Joy of our salvation renewed.

Think about this, eternal life, it is hard to comprehend but it is eternal, no sickness, no problems, all tears wiped away, just Joy, Peace, love in the very presence of the full trinity, this is hard to grasp when you are in a hard time, a sickness, depressed. fear of what may happen tomorrow, and other issues, circumstances, weaknesses.

WE will have new bodies, there will be no wheel chairs, walkers, oxygen tanks, in glory amen.

An old sermon I did years ago called, 'Grasping the eternal, how to overcome anything', sounds to good to be true but it is. I will post that old video now, as it is my message in a nut shell to you beloved reader.

Spurgeon devotion today fits perfect with the video sermon.

 A little stay on earth will make heaven more heavenly. Nothing makes rest so sweet as toil; nothing renders security so pleasant as exposure to alarms.

The bitter quassia cups of earth will give a relish to the new wine which sparkles in the golden bowls of glory. Our battered armour and scarred countenances will render more illustrious our victory above, when we are welcomed to the seats of those who have overcome the world.

We should not have full fellowship with Christ if we did not for awhile sojourn below, for he was baptized with a baptism of suffering among men, and we must be baptized with the same if we would share his kingdom.

Fellowship with Christ is so honourable that the sorest sorrow is a light price by which to procure it. Another reason for our lingering here is for the good of others. We would not wish to enter heaven till our work is done, and it may be that we are yet ordained to minister light to souls benighted in the wilderness of sin. Our prolonged stay here is doubtless for God’s glory. A tried saint, like a well-cut diamond, glitters much in the King’s crown. Nothing reflects so much honour on a workman as a protracted and severe trial of his work, and its triumphant endurance of the ordeal without giving way in any part.

We are God’s workmanship, in whom he will be glorified by our afflictions. It is for the honour of Jesus that we endure the trial of our faith with sacred joy. Let each man surrender his own longings to the glory of Jesus, and feel, “If my lying in the dust would elevate my Lord by so much as an inch, let me still lie among the pots of earth. If to live on earth for ever would make my Lord more glorious, it should be my heaven to be shut out of heaven.” Our time is fixed and settled by eternal decree. Let us not be anxious about it, but wait with patience till the gates of pearl shall open.
