Scripture reading: Psalm 91

Psalm 91:1-2, “He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High (between the cherubim on the Mercy Seat) shall abide (remain stable and fixed) under the shadow of the Almighty. 2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I (confidently) trust!”

Verse 4, “He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings (symbolic for power) shalt thou trust: His truth shall be thy shield and buckler (weapons of defense).”

Verse 11, “For he shall give his angels (special) charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.”

As the children of Israel journeyed from Rameses in Egypt to the promised Canaan land, God provided every form of care and deliverance possible so that they might survive what would be an impossible journey for women and children, old men and cattle, in a parched and dry wilderness void of sustenance for a few people, let alone hundreds of thousands or perhaps millions.

There are scriptures which give us an idea of the vastness of the miracle of provision which brought them out and carried them in, for example Exodus 19:4, “Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles’ wings, and brought you unto myself.” The symbolic term “eagles’ wings” means wings of power. This is borne out by the circumstances which prevailed in the wilderness.

When we look at Exodus 13:21, Nehemiah 9:21, Exodus 16:4, and Exodus 17:6 we can see that the children of Israel were provided shelter from the blazing sun and high protein food to keep them strong and vigorous. Shoes and clothing were provided by God supernaturally and there was never any people mothered and cared for by a loving God ever in the history of humanity to that time.

God is a provider. There is provision in Him to cover all our weaknesses and to heal all our diseases.

Some who read these lines may be in grave physical danger as war and revolution sweep the earth; but remember, David faced danger every day of his life and the Holy Spirit spoke through him more than any recorded writer of the deliverance of God from the enemy.

Psalm 23:1-5, “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want: 2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters. 3 He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies: Thou anointest my head with oil; My cup runneth over.”

This and more represents the response of overshadowing which God gives to the church as she moves in the Spirit. The embroidery covering (shown in the Tabernacle of Moses in Exodus 26) is symbolic of all this.

Thought for today: The Almighty God, Creator of the entire Universe, the God that made you and I is telling us that He is here. God’s Word says He will never leave us or forsake us. Our choice is not to forsake God! Let the Great Provider lead your footsteps today and rest in His peace that passeth all understanding.

Scripture reading: Leviticus 14:21-23

I am sure you sometimes wonder, “Why was it necessary for the children, all the people of God to be killed?” They were eaten by lions. What an awful death that must have been. They were burned with fire. They were put to the sword. Why was it necessary?

Look at 2 Timothy 4:4, And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. 5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry. 6 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.

Paul is saying that because of his ministry, because of his stewardship, because of his priesthood, he was “ready to be offered.” Do you know that the priest offered himself first? When he went to the Altar of Incense, he offered himself. The people put their hands on him and they confessed their sins before him: adultery, theft, lying, murder, and he took all of the sins, staggered in before God, and offered up for himself and for the sins of Israel. The fire went up, the smoke went up and God accepted it.

So therefore, there is an offering to take place in our time. An offering that soon will be. But did you know that there were some people who were too poor to give the offering (see Leviticus 14:21-22)? Can you understand what that says? Some people were too poor to make the offering, therefore God said that they should get two doves and the doves would be the offering for that person – Holy Spirit. Yes, the Holy Spirit would come in.

Leviticus 14:10, And on the eighth day he shall take two he lambs without blemish, and one ewe lamb… “On the eighth day.” What is that saying? That is saying that on the new beginning – eight is the number of new beginning – God is going to create an offering.

God Almighty is saying that He is creating a people and you are going to be among those people, in the company of the Lamb. In the morning, Jesus Christ died. Thank God, He gave us His Blood and He saved us from our sins. In the middle of the day, the Church and all those who went towards bringing this Church here – starting with Abraham and going right down through the whole nation of the Jews, bringing forth Jesus Christ, bringing forth life in my soul. Then, we become the next lamb – the last lamb to be offered is the two witness company. Amen.
