"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters. And God said," (Genesis 1:1)...Moses experienced being born again when he was sent to the wilderness. Not only did he find out the truth of his natural lineage, but that the true God was Spiritual desiring a relationship with him. Moses heard the voice of the living God call him from the death into resurrection LIFE as a forerunner to share and teach to the children of God whom He was from the beginning of time. God gave Moses the wisdom to bridge the gap with the relationships they had heard about from the stories past down through Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and his sons. For four hundred years or forty generations the children of God had been locked in slavery by the god of the world they were in.

"Very truly I tell you, a time is coming and has now come when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God and those who hear will live" John 5:25
Jesus made a very strange statement in this verse – dead people will be able to hear AND can hear NOW! This kind of statement has no literal logic or reason to our natural mind. Many of us have been to funerals to see our loved ones lying in a casket. We've stood looking at their face with hope that maybe it wasn't true that they weren't really gone, and the nightmare of death would be just a dream.

Today, many people who believe in Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior have experienced what they would consider a "born-again" moment in their life. They have been saved by faith and confession that Jesus Christ is the only Begotten Son of God. With this basic level of Christian faith, we recognize that someday when our natural body is worn out we have the assurance of being in a place called Heaven where our Heavenly Father – God - resides. When we pause to consider that most of us are not ready to leave our natural bodies and go to an unknown place called heaven, we must consider the question of what does our Heavenly Father expect from us while we are still on the earth in our natural bodies?

God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM." And He said, "Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, "I AM has sent me to you." Moreover, God said to Moses, "Thus you shall say to the children of Israel: "The Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is MY name forever and this is MY memorial to all generations." (Exodus 3:14-15)
The name of God is a noun that moves to a verb - I BE: I will be what I will be, I will become what I will become, and/or I will be whom I will become.
This magnificent name I AM - YHVH- had within the name the ability to free the children of God from slavery, bondage, poverty, and oppression. The name of God not only set the captives free, but also brought the children together, forming one nation after 400 years.
We are a royal priesthood, a holy nation. What do our garments look like? Are we putting on the royal garments of the high priest? Are we unveiling Jesus Christ in us to others so that the glory of the Lord in them that had been hidden can now be seen?
Moses was told by God to clothe his brother and his brother's sons for the job they would be doing to honor and serve the Lord.
Many times individuals of the body of Christ are not functioning in their purpose and calling on the earth because they have yet to meet a believer in Christ that has clothed them with their royal garments of glory. Instead, we are busy telling them how to change their ways to be a better Christian.
Today is a very special day for all humanity: Jews, Christians, and Gentiles or a believer
of another faiths for today is the day appointed by God to seal the Book of Life.
The Apostolic ministry of the body of Christ has a purpose to
release the paradox of height and direction for the body. Be aware of your
territory the Lord has placed you in. What is the atmospheric condition? Much
of the body of Christ is busy dealing with storms and crisis from the position
of fear and exhaustion wondering when it will end. The Lord tells us to fight
the battle from His position of rest, praise, joy, love, righteousness, and
peace. What we find out is from that position, the battle has already been won. So how to we get there resting in HIM?
We go through seasons of development, training, discipline that has placed boundaries for us
to abide in this world as babies and children. We come to Passover; we now have
the ability to crossover from those growing up in the world's boundaries to unveil
our personal identity with Jesus Christ that is set apart from the world's
patterns. This would be like a bar mitzvah or the puberty years. Jesus has
washed our feet making us all clean (John 13:8-10).
I believe there are hidden treasures in our Christ life that the church has yet
to discover which are found in counting the omer.

We are at a crossroad of change, a destiny that we have not traveled before. BE PREPARED! FAST and BUILD an ALTAR as a pillar to the Lord that this bridge will not be crossed again. We cannot recycle or recirculate where we have been if we desire to move on with God. This altar that we build for God must have a personal foundation that cries out to God, "Change my heart Father."
Every time God wanted to do something new, He would call a peculiar people to build an altar, make a sacrifice, and worship God by offering a sweet smelling savor to the Lord. God honors the altars and pillars of our lives.
In each of us, there is a flame in our heart that does not go out. For every delay, every disappointment, God will bring back double in ways that we could not do when we allow our heart to become the altar of fire which has the ability to purify our soul. The words that come out of our mouth are the essence, the aroma, of the offering we offer unto God.

Who do you say "I AM?" These two words are your identity with the Father through Jesus Christ. They carry the weight and the power in you to change the atmosphere of time and space. What we do with these two words will determine whether we create Life or Death for it is the words that follow "I AM" that will determine if we are sowing seeds of LIFE or seeds of death into our atmosphere and domain. When we accepted Jesus Christ as our personal savior we did not have a tangible experience that determined the evidence of accepting Jesus as our redeemer. Yet, we each personally experienced a transformation of our spirit quickened into a new life that was so real and personal to each of us that we know that we know. This power and wisdom of God that came into our lives was so real, though not visible or tangible, that it caused a change in our lives creating us into a new creation in Christ.
