CHARACTER STUDY: MOSES 24

KEY SCRIPTURE: Exodus 9:10 ” And they took ashes of the furnace, and stood before Pharaoh; and Moses sprinkled it up toward heaven; and it became a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast.”

Moses took ashes from the furnace and sprinkled it up towards heaven and it became boils on all the Egyptians both man and beast.

How could ashes become boils? The spiritual always have control over the natural and physical. Hebrews 11:3 “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”

“. This scripture shows us the power of the spoken word in faith. The ashes became boils because the Lord God had said to Moses that if he threw the ashes into the air, it would become boils on all Egyptians including animals. He believed and obeyed, so it happened.

The Lord said to his disciples. In Mark 11:23, “For whosoever shall say to this mountain. Be thou removed and be cast into the sea and shall not doubt in his heart but shall believe that those things he saith shall come to pass, he shall have whatsoever he saith”. This is one of the laws of life that causes things to happen for us. The Lord did not distinguish who should say such words. He said whosoever. This means anybody can say this. All that is necessary is to meet the conditions. The condition is to believe in your heart and not to doubt what you said. This same principle applies to receiving salvation from the Lord. Romans 10:9 and 10 reads “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth, the Lord Jesus and shall believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shall be saved, for with the heart man believes unto righteousness and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation”. God is good and does not make sophistication of what is so vital as salvation or experiencing spiritual realities in our lives. He’s made it very simple, such that everyone and anyone can experience it

Moses saw so much about God, that he acted on a childlike faith. He was not afraid to stand before Pharaoh and tell him that God would do this or that. What was his secret? He had had an experience with God. The secret of strong faith is experience through acting on God’s word. Moses did not just run to Egypt to tell Pharaoh and the Israelites what God has told him. He asked for more evidences, giving him a strong bases to trust him.

May we also look for undeniable experiences with God by acting on what He tells us privately.     

CONFESSION

God is always ready to show His power, as i trust and act on His word.
