|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.

|Is God Worthy?|
|Philippians 2:5-11 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|We are created in His likeness. Your life matters and everything you do matters. You can thank Him for the basics like food, shelter and health but even the birds have all those things. Man wants to see Gods glory but no man can see His glory in the human form. Our human form is sinful therefore we can not look upon God without a filter from His glory. When Christ became obedient unto the cross that made a way to God Himself. There is no other way to God than thru Jesus Christ alone.
The Angels seen Jesus Christ and watched God create all creation. They then watched Jesus become a man and descend to earth as a baby. When the single angel declared His birth the rest of the angels, multitudes of them declared and glorified Him. The Angels had waited for thousands of years to proclaim Christ's birth.
There is only one way to bring glory to God. Just as Moses had to be hid from Gods glory by a rock, we are hid behind Jesus. God made a search everywhere for a way but in the end, God gave Jesus, His only son, for us to truly glorify God. John 5:23 Jesus did the very work of God.

|Get On Board the S.S. Grace|
|Genesis 6:1-8 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|SS sometimes stood for sailing ship or steamship but think about safe and secure. The world right now is spiraling out of control with evil. We all come into another SS which is sin sick. When Jesus laid His body down for the ultimate sacrifice He offered up His own blood to a His father for all of our sins then and now.
Noah had to proclaim for about 120 years that their time was numbered. Everyone made fun of him and called him crazy because of what he was telling them about water falling from the sky. They'd never seen anything like that because the earth was watered from the ground up. Just like today's times, we are warning others about a his second coming but everyone mocks the Christian because they haven't seen Jesus.
The door of the ark was shut and sealed. Jesus will only come to a lost person so many times to which He only promises but one time. When you turn Him away, you've shut the door to Christ and once the door is shut, it's shut for good. Your fate is forever sealed. During the flood not only was it raining from above but water was coming up from the ground as well. It did this for 40 days and 40 nights across the entire world. It created a new world fresh with Noah's family which followed a Gods word.
Moses', his mother knew he was to be killed so she made an ark out of weeds, bulrush. God told the woman that found him that she couldn't do on her own so she set out to find a help. The help was actually Moses very own mother to which she raised him right in the middle of the people that wanted to kill him.
There was a ship that Paul was on and a really bad storm set in. God came to Paul and told him that they were to lose everything they had except their lives as long as they stayed in the ship. They ran aground and the ship tore apart but the people never let go of the ship. None of them lost there lives because they obeyed and never left the ship however they lost everything they had.
Religion will not save a person. Never has, never will.

|Bound by Sin|
|John 11:41-44 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|Disobedience to the Word of God is the number one sin in the world today. When Jesus called for Lazarus to come forth, he was still wrapped and wasn't clean. Just as we need to remove the sin, unwrap the sin. It doesn't matter how wrapped up with sin, when Jesus calls, He cleans. How many times have you argued with God about something He's told you to do? Moses argued with God, so did Jonah. How did they turn out? We were all dead in our sins, when Jesus spoke your name, you came out of your grave clothes and were born again. Unless Jesus calls your name, you can't be saved. Do you know what to do when God tells you to do something?|

|A Few Good Men|
|Ezekiel 22:30 (Part of the Miscellaneous series).|
|We have a great need for men that have assumed the responsibility to lead in God's path and not their own. A Godly man is one that is a great mediator between God and himself. Sin comes into our lives and we men to stand in the gap. There is a plague among us in America that is causing people to fall to the wayside and to death. Look back in history at Godly men that stood for Christ that knew that He was the only way we can survive. Christ is the ultimate mediator. Is there not a cause to NOT stand? All that's necessary for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing.|
