The Lord told Joshua, "... as I
was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake
you" (Joshua 1:5). In a similar way, Yeshua said He would be with us
without ceasing, from now until the end (Matthew 28:20). Therefore, to some
degree, through the Holy Spirit, the potential of the words spoken to
Joshua are applicable for you and me even today.
One of Moses' greatest victories was the crossing of the Red Sea
during the Passover exodus from Egypt. (I believe that Yeshua was also
present as the Angel YHVH in the pillar of fire.) The crossing involved
intense pressure and a possible disaster. Let's look at the elements
of this miracle to see how to apply them in our lives today.
1. Submitting to God's Will - God told Moses to lead the
children of Israel out of Egypt. Moses didn't really want to do it or
feel he was capable to handle the challenge (Exodus 3). Yet he submitted
and obeyed, doing God's will and not his own (Matthew 6:10; 26:39).
2. Lift your Staff - The children of Israel were trapped on the
shores of the Red Sea and screaming at Moses. The Egyptians were charging.
The situation was hopeless and impossible. God told Moses to stretch out
his hand and staff over the Red Sea (Exodus 14:16). The staff symbolizes
faith and authority.

3. Blow Mighty Wind - After Moses stretched out his hand and staff,
God caused a mighty wind to blow (Exodus 14:21). Wind and spirit in Hebrew
are the same word, ruach. After Moses took a step of faith, God sent
a powerful spiritual wind to blow all night to open a path through the
middle of the sea. God did it; not Moses. Moses believed. God provided the
power and did the impossible.
4. Lead the People Through - Now that the way was open, Moses
simply led the people through. God opened; Moses led; the people walked to
the other side. They came to a totally new place.
5. Destroy the Enemies - Then God told Moses to raise his staff
again. This time the Lord acted to destroy the enemies. Moses used the rod
of faith authority to lead the people, to release the Spirit, and to
destroy the enemy.
After this inconceivable deliverance the only conceivable response of the
people, was to sing and dance and praise the Lord. "I will sing unto
YHVH for He has triumphed gloriously ..." (Exodus 15:1).
Halleluyah, let us seek to walk in the spirit of joy, praise and victory
even in the midst of the most difficult situations.

04:44pm 29Mar18, Joanne Lepp: Agreed! This Passover is very significant! Not only to Israel,
not only as we saw at Korea Global Gathering but in our
personal lives as we cross out of threats onto His sure
ground, His promises made real. Love you and walking
07:48pm 29Mar18, Patience: A powerful article! Thank you.
09:36pm 29Mar18, IL: Excellent article! Every subject on which Asher Intrater writes
is worth reading. Only a Jewish person who knows Yeshua can
explain both the OT and NT as he does. Thank you! We need a
book about the Parables in light of the Hebrew customs to shed
new light on them. No one is teaching on the Parables. Please
write a book on them as Yeshua as a Jew and what they meant.
02:09am 30Mar18, Suri Izaka: Powerful teaching. Thank you.
05:10am 30Mar18, David Howell: Thanks again Asher for your timely words. Things are changing
rapidly in God's time table. Many are dull and sleeping
and your voice is like a trumpet alarm to wake up and prepare
God's kids for this final chapter. Continue to make Jesus
first, don't compromise. Prepare for increase of
persecution. Prepare the lambs for the slaughter, the days are
running out, the day of his appearing is closer than we think.
The fields are white with harvest. Those who speak truth are
rare. Devotion to Christ must be the center focal call. "They
followed the Lamb where ever he goes and lived not thier life
until death.2 Walk before and fix yours eyes on Jesus. He is
the Captain of the Lord of Host and he is with you.
12:35pm 30Mar18, Jamie Parker-Frank: Thank you for such a clear, succinct explanation of the deep
meaning of Passover. I've never seen it explained so well
