15 And the LORD said unto Moses,
Wherefore criest thou unto me?
speak unto the children of Israel,
that they go forward:
When statements are made they are made for a certain purpose to be fulfilled. More so when the Almighty God himself is the one speaking. He said here that the children of Israel should go forward. His words are powerful and creative. Jn. 1:1-3.
When word like this is spoken it could be just:
A kind of advice to someone
A kind of information to someone
A kind of command to someone.
The word that is coming to you today is not just advice that could be considered, or a piece of information to be ignored but a command that you have to obey. Go Forward is a command that you must obey if you will ever get to your destiny.
Today you are standing in at a point where you either move ahead and succeed or stay where you are and perish.
You have been pursued to a point of no return and your enemies know that this is the final elimination match in which someone must move ahead to reach his destiny and the other person must surely die in relegation.
My prayer for you today is that you will not be the person to die but the person that is moving on
to the next level (Psalms. 118:17.)
To the other side of the Red Sea,
To the place where there is plenty of milk and honey.
To move on from the slavery of more than four hundred years into your total freedom
To move on from failure to success
To move on from sickness into health
And as you go your song shall be: I am pressing on the upward way, new height I am gaining everyday…
And when you read the bible you sometimes read that Jesus went down from Jerusalem to some other places: Jerusalem is high up and when anyone moves from it they are actually moving downward toward Samaria or any other lower town. Lk. 4:31
Whenever the children of Israel backslide they are always going down to Egypt. Gen. 12:10;
Moses in Ex. 19:14. was on mountain top with God and later went down to meet the multitude below. Isa. 30:2-6 says that woe to those who go down to Egypt. Going up has always been better than going down while going forward has always been better than going backward.
When God therefore told Moses to go forward there are a lot of meaning that can be derived from that statement and I want you as a person to derive positive meaning from it also. What exactly does it mean to GO FORWARD?
1. To go forward here means that he should proceed to where he has determined to go to. His determination was to reach the land where milk and honey flow. Ruth.1:18; 1 Sam. 30:8;
There are so many of us who have always determined to go higher but the enemies have prevented, the situations and circumstances around us have prevented, and certain constraint and man-made barrier have prevented. This is the day to have your determination fulfill. Ps. 18:5 &18.
Your determination to be free shall be granted
Your determination to pass your exams shall be granted
Your determination to be married shall be granted
Your determination to have children shall be granted
Your determination to have your own house shall be granted
Your determination to be gainfully employed shall be granted.
Your determination to change the history of your family shall be granted.
Your determination to live above sin shall be granted.
Your determination to come up higher shall be granted.
2. To go forward also means that he should never retreat because of the threat of the enemy, the army of Pharaoh. 2 kings. 19:8-12. Acts.4:17
Why must you be afraid when the Lord is the one urging you to move ahead. Ps. 27:1-4.
This is not a time to turn back because it is dangerous to do so. Hebrews 10:38-39.
There could be certain limitations that you have do not look at them focus your attention on Jesus.
You may be feeling pain in your body right now focus your attention on God and the pain shall go.
You may not have money in your pocket now the God that is urging you to move on is the great provider, the owner of the cattle on a thousand a thousand hills.
3. To go forward means that the present obstacle, the Red Sea shall be removed. Heb. 13:33;
On that day two types of obstacle were removed. The geographical obstacle was removed when the Red Sea opened up for them to pass and The human obstacle which was Pharaoh’s army was also removed.
I pray today that whatever is blocking your way shall be removed in Jesus name.
Every geographical hindrances
Every human hindrances
Every legislative hindrances
Every curse place on you
Every boundary adjustment to blocks you
All of them shall be completely removed today in the name of Jesus.
4. To go forward means that the future obstacles shall be taken care of and be removed also. Zechariah. 4:7-9
When David killed Goliath little did he realized that Goliath had other terrible brothers, more fiercely looking and they all died by the hands of David and his men. 2 Sam. 21:18-22.
All enemies known and unknown to you who are waiting in your future shall fall in Jesus name.
When Israel crossed the Red Sea they met some kings who tried to block them
They met some cities like Jericho which tried to block them
They met some Satanic prophets, Balaam and Balak who tried to block.
They overcame them all. And I prophesied to you that you shall overcome all future obstacles to reach your goal.
5. To go forward means do not be afraid I will always be with you. Gen. 26:3; Gen.31:3; Joshua. 1:5; Isa. 41:10-11;
Your fear is not real they are just mere imaginations. That day Moses and the children of Israel had their fears. What if the Red sea swallows us? What if the enemy catches up with us before we reach the other side of the Red Sea. What ifs and what ifs! As it turned out that day all their imaginations and fears never became reality. All that you are thinking now that would happen to you if you take the steps of faith to move ahead will never happen. You have to take a step of faith and just move forward. There are many devices in a man’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand. Proverbs. 19:21.
Don’t allow any fear to keep you in the same place you have always been for years
It is the Almighty God who is asking you to move ahead today and He cannot lead you to the trouble waters. You cannot afford to disobey him. Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. JOSHUA. 1:9
6. To go forward means that His promises for you shall never fail. He will fulfill all of them. Hebrews 6:13-14;
God promised to take Israel that he would deliver them from Egypt and He did.
God promised to take them to the Promised Land and He did.
God promised Abraham a son and He did
God had told Abraham that he would bless him and he did.
What are God’ promises to you?
I will be with you. Joshua. 1:5.
I will protect you. Isa. 43:2. Psalms. 91:13.
I will provide for your needs. Psalms. 34:10
I will not allow any weapon fashioned against you to prosper. Isa.54:17
7. To go forward means that God will snatch away those who are destined to die right away from the jaw of death. That day Moses and the rest were supposed to be killed by the Pharaoh’s army. But God in His Power did not allow that to happen. Ex. 15:9; Isa.49:26.
God exchanged the hunter for the hunt. Isa. 43:4.
God exchange the wicked Hamman for the Jews.
Herod seeking to kill Jesus died. Matthew. 2:19.
Those who died were raised back to life. Lk.7:14; John.11:42-44.
All of you that are supposed to die now your enemies that hunt your life shall die instead
All of you who are already dead I speak that you come back to life now.
All the good thing that have been destroyed in you I command that they come to life.
8. To go forward means that God is about to begin a chain of reactions that will lead the children of Israel from one miracle to another.
They crossed the Red sea,
Their enemy perished,
Bitter water became sweet,
God gave them water from the rock,
God made manna fell from heaven. Jer. 31:4; I Sam. 10:3
From today one miracle shall lead to another greater ones in your life
You shall experience the kind of breakthroughs you have never known before in your life.
9. To go forward means:
Today is the day you have been waiting for all your life and God has sent me to you to deliver this message. You can do it and you can make it. Take this as a message from God to you and we shall meet at the top.
God bless you.
