|The Emblem of Deliverance and the Provider|
|Exodus 17:8-16 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Shepherds usually had a staff, a stick. Exodus 3:4 tells a story of Moses experiencing a bush that was on fire but wasn't consumed by it. The burning bush being God told Moses to take his shoes off because he was on holy ground. Just today, we should condition ourselves for the presence of God.
Thinking about the staff of Moses, God used this staff as a proof. Exodus 4 explains that this staff was the rod of God. This rod was powerful tool of God that was used as the beginning of the plaques, turned into a snake that ate the magicians tricks. The rod of God was also used to split the Red Sea for the Israelites to cross on dry ground. It was also used to close the Red Sea. It was used to strike a rock for water to burst forth in order to water the Israelites cattle and themselves. The rod of God was held up above Moses' head and as long as it was, the Israelites people were able to prevail against the army of Amalek.
Now we often think we ourselves can do anything. The truth is that we can't do anything of ourselves. The rod was a symbol of the future to come, Jesus Christ. We can't do anything without Jesus Christ. The rod, just a Christ, is used as deliverance in any time of need. We have an emblem that we can hold high which is the cross. The reason one goes to Hell is because they reject Christ as Gods only son and Him being crucified and raised again for our sins.
The rod was also a provider as it provided safety and water. Safety from Pharos and the Amalek armies. Provider of the water when the rock was struck. In our arrogance we often think we can provide and to give safety. When the bills are due and they become paid. When the cupboard is barren but the food comes in. Satan is a coward and always strikes from the back. When he begins to attack Jesus comes from the front and chases the enemy away. Just in today's time we should help out each other and lift them up, hold the up in order to fight against the devil. We should also lift Jesus Christ up for all to see. The purpose of the church is to lift up Jesus Christ and if we can do that the job will get done.

|You Know Already|
|Daniel 5:1-31 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|When you get to judgement, the only thing that will come from your mouth will be, "amen" hearing your own condemnation if you're lost. Every man is a liar and God is true. In our history books we read about Babylon falling and when it fell a great party took place. Daniel 5:1-31 speaks of this great fall. When you die your not just dead, there is a life after death. Which life you pass into is up to you. Daniel 5:22 people walk around with the knowledge of Jesus Christ coming to save the lost. Refusing to believing in that fact does not make it invisible or non applicable to you. The reason why the lost will say amen to their own condemnation is because they knew. We live in a time that folks are unmoved of the truth of Jesus Christ. Daniel 5:23 shows us that he had no fear of what God could do. Today we live in a time that folks no longer fear the living God. People live after their own wisdom which is flawed. Titus 2:11 proves to everyone that Christ's invitation will appear to ALL persons. Daniel 5:24 declares a judgement, a closing. Once judgement is declared, it's done, finished. Judgement will catch many unaware because death is a sure surprise. Daniel 5:30 death came to a great city, one of the greatest cities fortified by men. Hebrews 10:28-31 you might walk around today with no fear of meeting a Holy God. Living just as you want in a lifestyle without Christ in your life. But when death finds you unprepared, it will be too late to accept Jesus Christ. God holds your very breath and that one fact should be enough to fear Him. He loves you and wants you to be with Him in His dwelling place, Heaven. When Jesus Christ invites you to be saved, accept His plead. Don't refuse Him, run to Him.|

|The Pride Before Your Fall|
|Romans 12:3 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Pride quickly became a problem with Adam and Eve in the beginning of mankind. We are all prideful by nature. Most of the time pride is the motivation that will get us all into trouble. Mat 23:12 Pride can not be in the same room as God. Some think that we have higher rights than another, smarter than another. There is not a single person that smarter than the next nor is there a single person that doesn't struggle with pride. Pride hinders the church from growth, pride stops the humbling towards God. Gods ways are unknown as well as His thoughts. We will never understand Gods thought process so why do we choose to think we know what's best in others and our lives? Pride. As long as pride rules in your life, long suffering, love, compassion and humbling will never have its place in your life. At times, we look at others and get a form of excitement because someone else is having a rough time and we feel as if they deserve it. You'll never love God until you give up on yourself.|

|The Wiles of the Devil|
|Ephesians 6:10-18 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Satan is a created being and is no different than the angels in heaven. Satan has many tactics that he uses on the children of God on a daily basis. The thief has come to steal, kill and destroy. The thief is the devil and the wicked spirits that serve him. Their are enough to spread across the world. The devil does not have free rein of a christian because we are protected by the shield of God. John 10:10, 2 Cor 2:11, Eph 6:16, 1 Peter 5:8 We truly have an enemy and we can not stand in the flesh to fight him. It takes something greater than the flesh to fight him because he is in the sprint therefore must be fought in the spirit. He is not omnipresent but has many demons that do his handy-work. This world currently is the devils domain until Jesus comes back. The very thing that we live in, the flesh, wants to live in the world because of it’s lust. Nothing has changed since Adam and Eve because he is still deceiving and lying to people everyday. What a terrifying thing to be able to see with our eyes the spiritual warfare that goes on all around us. If we are saved then we are protected by Gods great hand and satan can not get to us unless God allows it. When Jesus died, He died for ALL but many will not submit to Him. If you’re playing with the devil he will take you further than you ever thought you would go quicker than you ever thought. When you light a match and place that flame under your hand, you will pull your hand back because there is a nerve that warns you of danger. Just as that nerve warns you, God also warns you of the dangers of the devil. Satan wants to destroy your testimony if you’re saved. Satan will use anything he can to tear you down. He will use religion itself to bring you down. If you are saved then you’re going to heaven but that doesn’t mean that if you play with the devil that he will keep people around you lost and going into hell. We hear it everyday, pastors having affairs because satan laid a woman in their lives. We as humans are ignorant to satan’s lies and deceptions.|

|Being an Eyewitness (Part 6)|
|2 Peter 1:16-21 (Part of the 2 Peter 1 series).|
|Everyone has opinions but when it come to God's, ours simply do not matter. Some of us had great examples of what a Christian was to be but that doesn't mean they were gospel. Just because the preacher says it doesn't mean it's the truth. Only the gospel, the Word of God is the truth. In biblical times there were eyewitnesses that seen Jesus perform. Today we only have God's spirit that lives inside us that bares witness. One can only speak about their own experience with Christ. One does not know another's experience or if there ever was one. The one thing that a saved person can not do is to deny Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is not just a fable or a story that's shared, it the gospel and it's the only way that you can be saved. If you are not positive that a pastor is not saved, you better find another one. If they are not saved how can they know what they are preaching? Just because a person has the worldly teaching or a degree doesn't mean they have been saved by God. The bible is not simply a letter or a newspaper, it's a living, breathing, book of life. How is the Word of God meaningful to you? Because God has declared us all a sinner and a sinner will live eternally in hell unless they are saved. In the last days people will want teachers to simply entertainment them, not wanting to be told they are wrong.|
