In Exodus 4 PT 2, God is on the move to fulfill His plans and purposes. Moses is in dialogue with the Lord, which is prayer. Moses is in the process of rejecting God's word, and the Lord gets angry. Why? This is because of unbelief. Not trusting all of our future outcomes on God Almighty. Unbelief is the opposite of faith, which is obedience to God's word. Unbelief is rejecting God's words, and thus the great things He has for our lives. "Wait," you say: "Podcast for Pewsitters, Moses was being asked to take on the most powerful person and nation on the planet." Yep, this is the same as Christ asking us to take up our cross daily (well sort of but not as dramatic) and put our will and desires aside. Can we? No. Not unless we get help from God, Who, by the way, is the Creator of the Universe (let that sink in). So will we ask Him for His power? Will we respond? If we are being honest with God, we could pray, "Lord, I am so scared, and I think I will fail you." We believe God loves those kinds of sincere dialogue. We even had one ourselves. "Lord, I can't follow you...I tried and failed..." Good, that you failed in your own strength. Now try using His power! Grace is the saving power of Christ, and the Holy Spirit will teach us away from everything ungodly. Titus 2:11-12 When we are moving away from ungodliness and being obedient to God's word we are in grace. What is our willingness to obey God, and be in honest prayer? If Moses struggled with obedience, you will too. Be encouraged. He will help us!

Exodus Chapter 3 Part 1 is a pivot point in the Exodus story of the Holy Bible. We are at the time and place that God is acting on fulfilling prophecy or rather a promise to Abraham 400 years before! God speaks and it happens. This is how we know the Bible is true! Prophecy is inherently related to the fulfillment of something God says will happen. Our God means what He says and as Kingdom people, we want to respond to His will and look to the reasons God is speaking, and for what purposes and to whom, and if there are outcomes our Savior is looking to create. The sons of Israel are in dire straits within Egypt. God is listening to their heart cries. Let us respond to His ways. Join our online bible study through our podcast for pewsitters.
Do you know we are in a time of prophetic fulfillment for the last days? How can we line up with what God is doing? Let’s take a look at how Moses is responding to being confronted by God with an interesting sign…a burning bush! How can we respond as Moses did? Our bible study will focus on why the children of Israel are in the wilderness, and why there are applications for us today! The wilderness is dependence on God. The Hebrew word for wilderness contains the word DBAR. This word is used many times when God speaks. In fact, it is a name for God. Yahweh Speaks. Our Lord wants us to obey His word and will speak to us when we desire to get under His rule in our lives. Join Ric and Mary Joyner for Podcast for pewsitters to learn lessons from the burning bush.

Podcast For Pewsitters: We are discussing the priestly garments and how they point to Christ. What happened between Exodus 19 where God told Moses He wanted a Kingdom of priests and Exodus 28 where only Aaron was the High Priest? Something drastic changed. If God loves us the way we are, as some say, then we need to love Him for the way He is. This is His world and we are His servants. But, do we act the way we were made? Did you know we were not created to serve ourselves and our happiness?
Did you know our purpose is to minister to God? Could what we desire be to our detriment unless it lines up with God's Will? Do we want to walk with Him and experience joy and peace and satisfaction in this rough, tumble and a hurtful world even if our life is crumbling? Yes! Why were the priestly garments even needed? What is God calling us to in Christ? Why did He suffer for us and die for us? Could it be we are criminals? Christ died a criminals death. Was this a picture to show us how evil sin is? Yes! No one likes this thought, but we do need to look in the mirror of our heart called the 10 commandments to see where we stack up. These are the 10 expectations of God. The "follow your feelings" society just doesn't cut it in the Kingdom of God. People are left hungry, empty and broken. But God is our Creator, and He can make way for us. What is it?
We ask questions like why did Aaron get priestly garments and not Moses? Perhaps Moses was a model priest already? Moses heard God's voice and carried it out correctly. That is what priests did in the Old Testament, and disciples do in the New. He was truly a servant of God. We have God's Word, and we can be the same. We can say Moses was trained by God. We have the same opportunity. Will we take it?
What is God trying to say to us with the tinkling bells and pomegranates? Where does all of this show up in the new testament? Why is there so much symbolism in the old testaments? Why can't people see the connection to symbolism? Could the gospels be a parallel picture of the Exodus? The Hebrews in the desert saw the pillar of fire and the cloud and how God miraculously provided for them and healed them, yet it says they did not believe! (Hebrews 3) WHAT! The people in the new testament saw the miracles and the Words of Christ as He spoke to them, yet many did not believe! Even some of the disciples doubted! (Matthew 28) What shall we do? Could obeying God produce faith? YES! One step toward Him, even if we are confused and unsure is an act of faith. It will even produce more faith! You will start to grow up in God. Let God help you with your pain, hurt and confusion. We asked a lot of questions, and this is exactly what we should do every time we approach scripture. "What is Your agenda, Lord and how may we carry it out?" Join Ric and Mary Joyner for Podcast for Pew Sitters!See full post & comments

The story may surprise you, which the Bible so often does, that there are patterns and principles that affect us today!
