  1. I wanted to share this in my first reply, that I’m beginning to see the Spiritual Reality of what Christ did for us on the cross, and what our salvation consists of, and not just head knowledge of Scripture. I have greatly desired to know that I am crucified with Christ and to ‘reckon myself dead unto sin but alive unto God’, for that surely is our foundation. In seeking Him and Him showing me that truth in the measure He has given, put it in a whole new dimension of knowing. No one can take that truth away because it is of Himself that He gives. I know that there is far more He wants to give, as I ask, seek, and knock, with my whole heart, for He has said that I have come to give you life, and life more abundantly and I am The Way, The Truth, and The Life. Amen.
  2. I read this as if it was from the Lord Jesus Himself. There is such beautiful depths of ‘truths’ here, that I have to dissect them. Something like this deserves a proper response, and I so wanted to respond, but I have to look to Him for help beyond thank you. It was a helpful reminder and advisory (for me) from the first paragraph of Self and its elevated opinion vs seeing the truth of righteousness alone as the only “right”; to the next paragraph concerning inward direction/discipleship and accountability with the Lord, and a sort of cutting the umbilical cord from anything outward that hasn’t caused me to grow in dependence upon and knowing Him as my ‘strength, wisdom, security and all good things.’ The truth of a lack in my relationship with Christ if I can’t stand on my own convictions, against anything contrary, hit home. Thank you for driving this home: “It is this audience [with God] that is not only our life, but to be our all and all. It is within this audience that a believer’s convictions grow and are solidified.” Sorry for the lengthiness, but it bears repeating: For in Christ there are no opinions, only truth. If you only know truth as an opinion, you do not yet know truth as it is meant to be known. Jesus said “I have come that you might know the truth” meaning, truth as truth, not as an opinion about truth. It is knowing truth by experience that gives a believer the strength of their convictions that nothing can shake. For they have tasted truth as a Spiritual reality (eternal nature) which it is an expression of. This is, and should be the goal of all believers, so we are not tossed about by every wind of doctrine that comes our way. For the Morning Star has risen in our hearts and we have learned to recognize truth. For we have come to know Him and we know that He knows us.
  3. Ephesians 2:10 KJV For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
  4. And Moses said unto the LORD, "The people cannot come up to mount Sinai: for thou chargedst us, saying, 'Set bounds about the mount, and sanctify it.'" And the LORD said unto him, "Away, get thee down, and thou shalt come up, thou, and Aaron with thee: but let not the priests and the people break through to come up unto the LORD, lest he break forth upon them." So Moses went down unto the people, and spake unto them. Exodus 19:23-25
  5. And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice. And the LORD came down upon mount Sinai, on the top of the mount: and the LORD called Moses up to the top of the mount; and Moses went up. And the LORD said unto Moses, "Go down, charge the people, lest they break through unto the LORD to gaze, and many of them perish. And let the priests also, which come near to the LORD, sanctify themselves, lest the LORD break forth upon them." Exodus 19:19-22
  6. peculiar: Strongs NT 4041 of one's own possession; costly, treasured, select, specially chosen
  7. Job 38:22-23 KJV "Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail, Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?"
  8. Sow for yourselves righteousness and reap the fruit of loving devotion; break up your unplowed ground. For it is time to seek the LORD until He comes and sends righteousness upon you like rain. Hosea 10:12
  9. Israel Defeats Amalek Then came Amalek, and fought with Israel in Rephidim. And Moses said unto Joshua, "Choose us out men, and go out, fight with Amalek: to morrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in mine hand." So Joshua did as Moses had said to him, and fought with Amalek: and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill. Exodus 17:8-10 As soon as the people drank from the living waters that came from the rock, the Amalekites came and attacked God’s people. I. Gordon Amalek was a type of the flesh. He was descended from Esau; and Esau represented the carnal nature.’ A. B. Simpson This is the first battle that Israel is called to fight in. Before now, the message had been ‘stand still and see the salvation of the Lord.’ (Exodus 14:13). Now the message is ‘choose some of the men and go and fight the Amalekites.’ CHM Taken from jesusplusnothing.com
  10. Water from the Rock And all the congregation of the children of Israel journeyed from the wilderness of Sin, after their journeys, according to the commandment of the LORD, and pitched in Rephidim: and there was no water for the people to drink. Wherefore the people did chide with Moses, and said, "Give us water that we may drink." And Moses said unto them, "Why chide ye with me? wherefore do ye tempt the LORD?" Exodus 17:1-2
  11. And the house of Israel called the name thereof Manna: and it was like coriander seed, white; and the taste of it was like wafers made with honey. And Moses said, "This is the thing which the LORD commandeth, Fill an omer of it to be kept for your generations; that they may see the bread wherewith I have fed you in the wilderness, when I brought you forth from the land of Egypt." Exodus 16:31-33
  12. "And it came to pass, that on the sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for one man: and all the rulers of the congregation came and told Moses. And he said unto them, "This is that which the LORD hath said: Tomorrow is the rest of the holy sabbath unto the LORD: bake that which ye will bake today, and seethe that ye will seethe; and that which remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning." And they laid it up till the morning, as Moses bade: and it did not stink, neither was there any worm therein. Exodus 16:22-24
  13. And the children of Israel did so, and gathered, some more, some less. And when they did mete it with an omer, he that gathered much had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no lack; they gathered every man according to his eating. And Moses said, "Let no man leave of it till the morning." Exodus 16:17-19
  14. And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, "I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel: speak unto them, saying," 'At even ye shall eat flesh, and in the morning ye shall be filled with bread; and ye shall know that I am the LORD your God.' And it came to pass, that at even the quails came up, and covered the camp: and in the morning the dew lay round about the host. Exodus 16:11-13
  15. 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. 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." 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: 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?" Exodus 16:4-7
  16. Bread from Heaven 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. And the whole congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness: 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." Exodus 16:1-3
  17. And he cried unto the LORD; and the LORD shewed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them, And said, 'If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee. And they came to Elim, where were twelve wells of water, and threescore and ten palm trees: and they encamped there by the waters.' Exodus 15:25-27
  18. Bitter Water Made Sweet So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water. And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah. And the people murmured against Moses, 'What shall we drink?' Exodus 15:22-24
  19. And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances. And Miriam answered them, 'Sing ye to the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.' Exodus 15:20
  20. "The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name. Pharaoh's chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea. The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone." Exodus 15:3-5
  21. The Song of Moses Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spake, saying, "I will sing unto the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea. The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father's God, and I will exalt him." Exodus 15:1-2
  22. And the angel of God, which went before the camp of Israel, removed and went behind them; and the pillar of the cloud went from before their face, and stood behind them: And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it gave light by night to these: so that the one came not near the other all the night. Exodus 14:19-20
  23. "And I, behold, I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they shall follow them: and I will get me honour upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host, upon his chariots, and upon his horsemen. And the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I have gotten me honour upon Pharaoh, upon his chariots, and upon his horsemen." Exodus 14:17-18
