Rook Takes Queen

“You need to stop thinking about what the enemy wants to do to you & start to think about what you are going to do to the enemy.” ~  Elizabeth Evans Wolfe ~

I saw a vision in my mind’s eye.  I could see a chess game.  My chess team had the white colored pieces.  The enemy was clad in black.  The black Queen threatened the white Rook.  At first glance the threat was so strong that it appeared as though there was reason to be afraid.    The enemy was only able to make an idle threat because it was the white team’s turn to play.  The white team realized the Rook was able to remove the Queen. 

When I saw the vision I heard these words go through my mind: “You need to stop thinking about what the enemy wants to do to you & start to think about what you are going to do to the enemy.”

Christians can put on the whole armour of God.  When the enemy threatens to cause us harm we can pray for wisdom from God to know how we are supposed to respond to the threats of the enemy.  ~ Elizabeth Evans Wolfe ~ January, 2015

Cast Your Bread Upon The Waters

Ecclesiastes 11:1&2 (NIV),

“Cast your bread upon the waters, for after many days you will find it again.  GIVE portions to seven, yes to eight, for you do not know what disaster may come upon the land.” 

Verse three part a says, “If clouds are full of water,
they pour rain on the earth.”  Isn’t it wonderful the way the good Lord helped man understand that the rain will come forth when the clouds are full?  That passage was written before people were making weather reports.    

Verse seven says that “Light is sweet, it pleases the eyes to see the sun.”  God’s Word reminds us how good it is to see the light of the day.  Jesus is the light of the word. I know it is pleasant to keep your eyes on the Son of God.

Anyone Can Say, “Lord, Lord!”

Anyone can say, “Lord, Lord!” but if they have not repented of their sins and accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior they won’t spend eternity in the Holy City mentioned in the book of Revelation Chapter 21. People prove they love God by the way they live their lives. IF they have not repented of their sins asking God to cleanse them of those sins & if they have not made Jesus Christ their LORD & SAVIOR then they will not get to heaven. More reading in Chapter 21 of the Revelation tells who will be walking on streets of gold and who won’t be allowed to enter. The great street of the Holy City of God will have golden pavement that is transparent like glass. It will be beautiful. Remember this: “The cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.” ~ Elizabeth Evans Wolfe

God Speaks Through His Son JESUS CHRIST

God  Speaks Through His Son JESUS CHRIST
Hebrews 1:1-4  (NIV),

“1 In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. 3 The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. 4 So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs.”

IF YOU HEAR HIS VOICE OBEY HIM – Hebrews 3:7-19

Hebrews 3:7-19(KJV),

“7 Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice,

8 Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:

9 When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years.

10 Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways.

11 So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest.)

12 Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.

13 But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

14 For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;

15 While it is said, Today if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.

16 For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses.

17 But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness?

18 And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not?

19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.”

Do You Want A Red Sea Miracle?

Several things happened before the Israelites received the Red Sea Miracle.   God gave them instructions telling them what they had to do before the miracle happened.     Some times God tells you what he expects you to do then he steps in to do things man cannot do.     God told the people they were to camp by the sea.  The enemy came upon them and the people got afraid.  Moses told the people, “. . . Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, . . .”    The people were not told to stand still until after they obeyed God to camp near the sea.   The people were also reminded to get rid of the fear that had come upon them.    If you set up camp where God wants you to be then you can know God will be with you.   – Extra note about Exodus 14:14 → “I believe the Scripture is very good to remind us about the times when God takes over because He plans on showing us His hand of salvation. God can do what no man can do. God is awesome & powerful. No one can do what our God can do. Who else could part the Red Sea and destroy only the enemy army then let the sea flow back together again? God helped the people have a divine shortcut to their new destination while he was stopping the enemy army from overtaking them. OUR GOD IS AN AWESOME GOD.”  Exodus 14 King James Version (KJV)

1And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,

2 Speak unto the children of Israel, that they turn and encamp before Pihahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, over against Baalzephon: before it shall ye encamp by the sea.

3 For Pharaoh will say of the children of Israel, They are entangled in the land, the wilderness hath shut them in.

4 And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, that he shall follow after them; and I will be honoured upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host; that the Egyptians may know that I am the Lord. And they did so.

5 And it was told the king of Egypt that the people fled: and the heart of Pharaoh and of his servants was turned against the people, and they said, Why have we done this, that we have let Israel go from serving us?

6 And he made ready his chariot, and took his people with him:

7 And he took six hundred chosen chariots, and all the chariots of Egypt, and captains over every one of them.

8 And the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he pursued after the children of Israel: and the children of Israel went out with an high hand.

9 But the Egyptians pursued after them, all the horses and chariots of Pharaoh, and his horsemen, and his army, and overtook them encamping by the sea, beside Pihahiroth, before Baalzephon.

10 And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted up their eyes, and, behold, the Egyptians marched after them; and they were sore afraid: and the children of Israel cried out unto the Lord.

11 And they said unto Moses, Because there were no graves in Egypt, hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness? wherefore hast thou dealt thus with us, to carry us forth out of Egypt?

12 Is not this the word that we did tell thee in Egypt, saying, Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians? For it had been better for us to serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in the wilderness.

13 And Moses said unto the people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen to day, ye shall see them again no more for ever.

14 The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.

15 And the Lord said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward:

16 But lift thou up thy rod, and stretch out thine hand over the sea, and divide it: and the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.

17 And I, behold, I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they shall follow them: and I will get me honour upon Pharaoh, and upon all his host, upon his chariots, and upon his horsemen.

18 And the Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord, when I have gotten me honour upon Pharaoh, upon his chariots, and upon his horsemen.

19 And the angel of God, which went before the camp of Israel, removed and went behind them; and the pillar of the cloud went from before their face, and stood behind them:

20 And it came between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel; and it was a cloud and darkness to them, but it gave light by night to these: so that the one came not near the other all the night.

21 And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.

22 And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left.

23 And the Egyptians pursued, and went in after them to the midst of the sea, even all Pharaoh’s horses, his chariots, and his horsemen.

24 And it came to pass, that in the morning watch the Lord looked unto the host of the Egyptians through the pillar of fire and of the cloud, and troubled the host of the Egyptians,

25 And took off their chariot wheels, that they drave them heavily: so that the Egyptians said, Let us flee from the face of Israel; for the Lord fighteth for them against the Egyptians.

26 And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the sea, that the waters may come again upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen.

27 And Moses stretched forth his hand over the sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the morning appeared; and the Egyptians fled against it; and the Lord overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea.

28 And the waters returned, and covered the chariots, and the horsemen, and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them.

29 But the children of Israel walked upon dry land in the midst of the sea; and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left.

30 Thus the Lord saved Israel that day out of the hand of the Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead upon the sea shore.

31 And Israel saw that great work which the Lord did upon the Egyptians: and the people feared the Lord, and believed the Lord, and his servant Moses.
