*TOPIC:THE REVELATION OF JESUS -NOT THE ABSENCE OF PROBLEMS- MAKES LIFE ABOUND*
*TEXT: Number 21:8*
_’Then the people came to Moses and said, We have done wrong in crying out against the Lord and against you: make prayer to the Lord to take away the snakes from us. So Moses made prayer for the people”_
The genesis of all human problems still lies in the rebellion of man to the ways of God. Obedience is key to abundant living. Yet, we need to know the kingdom principle for this kind of life even after salvation. The Israelites prayed the wrong prayer. Though it was channeled through that great man of God whom God knew face to face yet God could not answer it because it wasn’t consistent with the ways of God. They asked God to take away the snake. But God made another snake which was lifted on the cross and everyone that consistently looked on this snake on the cross will live continuously. This is the key.
The snake represents challenges of life. Jesus prayed to God not to take us out of this world but to keep us in this world. That is the prayer of the Israelites through the great man Moses redirected by the messiah in the New Testament. He said you should be of good cheer because he has conquered the world for us with all its challenges. This is the right disposition to all kinds of snakes you may meet in life. They are conquered, defeated! We just manifest the concluded victory. He will not take you out of the world or that company where the darkness is so much but be certain that you have conquered.Mordecai stood as a Jewish seed and defeated the Haman even as a mere gateman. Beloved stand on the covenant and see the victory.Don’t pray for God to take you away. Build your prayer altar and connect to the power of the kingdom. Are you complaining about your family, nation, work, your personality etc you will manifest abundant life despite all these, just see him that was hung on the cross. The entire penalty for our sin has been paid; you can connect with the mercy of God! Rise and lay hold of the grace that flows from the cross. This is where Christ paid the price. On the Cross he paid the price and in the grave God demonstrated his faithfulness by raising him from the dead. God is faithful today to all who will fix their gaze on Christ alone.
What is your own condition now? What is the snake bite? Don’t study the type of snake; it is one solution to all. God bless as you receive your healing from the snake bites in life.
