Ignoring God


Exodus 5:1**Ö.Thus says the Lord God of Israel. "Let My people go, that they may hold a feast to ME in the wilderness."

Our God doesnít condone oppression or injustice. As the Lord of history, he will not bless wicked people or nations that oppress others. Harmony with God and with people is knitted together. The Book of Exodus is not only about human freedom. It is about God calling people back into a personal relationship with their Creator. Pharaoh ignored the God of the Hebrews and designated himself as Lord God of Egypt to do his own wicked pleasure by forcing Godís people to do more slave work

As Ambassadors of Christ, we must speak out with the truth of our Lordís word to teach those who are oppressed, poor and needy. The Lord entrusts each His Disciples to carry out His work. **2 Cor. 5:17-21** Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all thing have become new. Now all things have become new. Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation, Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christís behalf, be reconciled to God. For He made Him (The Passover Lamb of God) who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

To be reconciled to God means he has restored His friendship and harmony to us. Most of this evil world is just like Pharaoh, which is stubborn and stiff necked. Ignoring our creator means we prefer to listen to the adversary of God (Satan). Therefore, we continue to worship Satan who has captured and enslaved the entire world. We are now worse off than the enslaved Hebrews of Egypt until God delivered them from the clutches of the evil one Our Lord brought his people out Egypt with a mighty hand. He soon will deliver his chosen few from this present day world with a greater mighty hand. This is the remnant (minuscule) elect of the Bride of Christ that does not ignore our Lord by keeping His commandments. (Revelation 14:12). Most churches claim they are the Bride of Christ which was true when first established by Him under the guidance of our Heavenly Father God. Yet within forty years after ascending back to heaven to sit with his Father on His Throne; the churches started becoming synagogues of Satan.

Revelation 3:8-10**."Indeed I (Messiah Christ Jesus) will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews, and are not, but lie ---indeed I will make them come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you. Because you have kept my command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth."

The Messiah Christ Jesus was specifically addressing the Jewish Christians of the Philadelphian Church. Some of churches such as the Sardian Church which Satan did not have to apply temptation or pressure since they were already spiritually dead; just as most of this world has become today. To become alive in Christ and to be become alive with Father God as His sons and daughters, we must become spiritually adopted Jews. (Romans 9:2-4, Ephesians 1:5, Romans 8:23)

Exodus 33:13**Now therefore, I (Moses) pray, If I have found grace in Your sight (God), show me now Your way, that I may know You and that I may find grace in Your sight. And consider that this nation is YOUR people. **When Moses first met God at the burning bush, he was afraid to look at God (Exodus 13:6). Now with the spiritual growth of walking with the Lord he became bold and asked the Lord to "TEACH ME YOUR WAY SO I MAY KNOW YOU AND CONTINUE TO FIND FAVOR WITH YOU."

As Disciples of Christ we have a great need to frequently ask the Lord to teach us His way so we will continue to walk closer and accept the grace he has given us to please our Creator.
