A good fight means that we have already won.
So why does the bible admonish us to “fight the good fight of faith” (1 Timothy 6; 12), if there was no fight? The honest truth is that as a Christian we are in a fight.
Do you realise that the clouds speak tremendous truth?
Here is some beauty you can behold from the clouds!
Jesus is coming back with clouds!
Revelation 1: 7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.
Matthew 26; 64 Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
A sign is a symbol that points to something of more significance. Any object action, event, pattern etc. that conveys a meaning is a sign.
Looking at the account when God told Moses to get the children of Israel out of Egypt, Pharaoh did not set his heart on those signs leading to hardness of heart. If Pharaoh had allowed the children of Israel to go after the first sign, he and his host would not have ended up the way they did. Exodus 4: 8 reads “And it shall come to pass, if they will not believe thee, neither hearken to the voice of the first sign, that they will believe the voice of the latter sign”. In other words, a sign has a voice. Its speaking something.
In the book of Exodus we have the account where Moses went up to mount Sinai twice to receive instructions and the ten commandments from God. He was in the mount for 40 days and 40 nights (Exodus 24; 18) on both occasions (Exodus 34; 28).
The first account can be found from (Exodus 24; 18 to 31; 18) and (Exodus 32 ).
If you were told that something needed strengthening, it could mean any of the following:
The word “contentment” means satisfaction.
I am not saying that we have to be content with bad circumstances, or circumstances that do not line up with the truth of God’s word, however the bible does speak about contentment.
Proverbs 4: 26 reads “Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established”.
Why do we have to think “ponder” the way of our feet? It’s because feet take us into a direction. In other words, we need to know where we are going.
If the Lord physically gave you a rod what you do think the capabilities of it would be?
Let’s look at the book of Exodus.
Exodus 3: 1
Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb.
We all know that shepherds use rods when keeping flock. This is one reason David used the analogy of a rod and staff in Psalm 23: 4b “thy rod and thy staff they comfort me”.
We all know of the account of how Joseph brothers sold him into slavery , yes; these are the twelve tribes of Israel.
Genesis 49: 28 reads
“All these are the twelve tribes of Israel: and this is it that their father spake unto them, and blessed them; every one according to his blessing he blessed them.
