Dear Ministry Friends, In Mark 11:22–23, Scripture reads, “And Jesus answering said unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say onto you, That whosoever shall say onto this mountain, be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart…” This verse of Scripture is a classic of our time. It is well known and quoted by us, the modern-day Christians. The key to the Scripture is in verse 22 “Have faith in God.” To have faith in someone you must know them personally and if you know them personally, you know who they are. Our Lord Jesus had a strong and confident relationship with “Father God”. Over and over in the Gospels He mentions this relationship. In John 16:28, He said, “I came forth from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, and go to the Father.” Jesus told his disciples, I came from my Father into the world and will go back to my Father in heaven when I leave this earth. Much of his time spent with the disciples was instructing them to know the Father. He communicated to them in most of his teachings that when they had a need they were to go to the Father in his name. The trinity is made up of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. All of us reading this message have met God the Son, Jesus, when we got saved. He showed us the way. “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6 Later, many of us met God the Holy Ghost as Baptizer. All of us call on the Father in Jesus name because we know that we became the sons of God through the born again experience. Yet, some of us truly do not have a personal relationship with the Father in Heaven. This past year many of us have come to know Father God in a greater way and our intimacy with him is growing. This is a time that you and I can continue daily to know him in a greater way by the power of the Holy Spirit. Who is Father God? Father God is the creator from the beginning, the GREAT I AM. When Moses said unto God, who are you? He responded this way, “And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come into the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you;… And God said unto Moses, “I AM THAT I AM:…” Exodus 3:13-14 The GREAT I Am revealed himself to Moses. He was really saying to Moses, I AM the Great God of Heaven, I AM the beginning and the end, I AM the Alpha and the Omega, I begin all things and I am the finisher. I have the final say. He said, Moses, I will give you a rod, with that rod you will lead my people OUT of Egypt, OUT of bondage, because they are mine and I’ve chosen them. They are my responsibility now and I need a man to lead them out because I have plans and purposes for them and their lives. I want to make them victorious, I want to see them set free. And Moses here is the rod! You see Moses was a man with human thinking and frailties. He was so surprised as he thought, what could this little rod do? But it wasn’t a rod, it was the ONE who was behind the rod; it was the ONE who created the tree where the rod came from. At this time Moses was looking at his own strength and depending on himself. He was just a mere human being who did not really know “Father God” and His Sovereign power.
HE IS THE GREAT I AM
It was after the burning bush and mountain top experience that Moses came to know his God better. All that God was looking for was an obedient vessel to work through. Today you and I need to draw closer to Father God. It is His power that raised us up from the dead! It is His power that brought us OUT of the darkness into his marvelous light, OUT of bondage, OUT of sin, OUT of misery, OUT of loneliness, OUT of turmoil into His marvelous light. Before that marvelous experience Moses was leaning to his flesh frame in bringing the people OUT of Egypt. But God was saying, “Moses, it’s not by power it’s not by might but by my spirit. Many times after we are born again we are still trying to do things by our own power and might, but let us remember, it’s not by might, it’s not by power, but by the spirit of the Living God! As we surrender he will bring us into a perfect rest.
DON’T LEAN ON THE ARM OF THE FLESH
Paul said, “For we are the circumcision, which worship God in the spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh. Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more.” Philippians 3:3-4. Paul said, if anyone could trust in the flesh it would be me; look at my social standing, look at my education, look at my bloodline, I’m a pure thorough bread Jew, but that means nothing compared to God’s strength and power. Later Paul said in that same chapter, verse 9–10, “And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: That I may know him…” Paul cried out, “Get to know Him, and when you do you will never follow no other but HIM!” He is good, loving and merciful. God’s Holy Word instructs us not to lean unto our own understanding but in all our ways acknowledge him. Proverbs 3:5-6. In plainer words, The Lord says put me first, don’t trust in your own abilities, I will direct and crown your efforts with much success, don’t be conceited and sure in your own wisdom, instead, TRUST and reverence me. I love you and will help you in the name of my son Jesus and by the power of the Holy Spirit. Many times our troubles don’t seem to go away, but they stay year after year and we cry “God, what’s wrong, why don’t you do something?” I believe that some of us are crying Father, Father in Heaven, but not truly knowing who we are talking to. Therefore, we keep running back to Egypt (the world) for help or trusting in ourselves and our abilities instead of making Him our ALL. Let’s run to Jesus He is our EVERYTHING!
DON’T BE A SHRUB IN THE DESERT
His word states in Jeremiah 17:5-7,”Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord. For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh;…” Here we are admonished again by the Prophet Jeremiah that as God’s people we are not to trust in the arm of the flesh, but in the arm of the GREAT I AM. He also says that we will become shrubs in the desert if we continue to trust in the flesh. This means we will not grow spiritually and then become very dry. The Lord’s plan for our lives is for us to grow and be mighty men and women of God. We are not to settle for being a shrub in the desert. God said to Moses, “Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the Lord, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage,…” Exodus 6:6-7. God spoke to Moses again and said I am the GREAT I AM who will take the yoke of bondage off you and redeem you with my outstretched arm. God has an arm to redeem us, yes, guide us, and deliver us in this hour. He says to us in 2013, quit trusting in the arm of the flesh, and quit trusting your own arm. I have an arm that is strong and powerful and I will do miracles for you. When our enemies come against us God says, “Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of thine arm they shall be as still as a stone; till thy people pass over, O Lord, till the people pass over, which thou hast purchased.” Exodus 15:16. As we are brought to a place of letting go and letting God, our Father in Heaven will do great and mighty miracles for us. Jesus our Lord and Savior knew his Father in Heaven and his great power. He had a personal relationship with the God of Exodus 15:11, “Who is like unto thee, O Lord, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?”
TRUSTING IN THE ARM OF THE LORD
Job also knew the arm of the Lord. God spoke to Job out of the whirlwind and said, “Then answered the Lord unto Job out of the whirlwind, and said, Gird up thy loins now like a man: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me...” Job 40:6-9. God asked Job a question; do you have an arm like mine? No, he thundered, your human arm has no strength compared to my arm. Just like Job, Moses and Paul knew that it was the arm of the GREAT I AM that helped them in every task, Jesus wants us to know the same. That it is “Father God” who will do great and mighty things for His people. Many of us have been trusting in the arm of the flesh, therefore we’ve had disappointments, and others are confused and discouraged. This can all change as you say to the GREAT I AM, Zion’s righteous governor, the Prince of peace, the great eternal Father: Come and be my helper, my deliver, my redeemer, my everything, then, you will no longer just see Him, but you will know Him. Then our prayers will be answered and our joy will be full. Jesus prayed for us in John 17:25, “O righteous Father, the world hath not known thee: but I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me.” Yes my beloved, the arm of the Father we will know, Amen. It could be that you are having personal problems, then you can be assured that He will be there to meet your need. Now, there is one problem, which we all need to be concerned about. Our country is quickly being moved into the one world government – that is a matter of prayer for all Christians. Just as He took His people out of Egypt with His strong arm He will do the same for us. Look to Father God He will never fail us! To God Be The Glory, hilda arredondo
