Transition-Part 3

Posted By on Sunday, December 13, 2015

The list of genealogies in Scripture confirms that man has been on the earth for 6,000 years, or six, one thousand year days.  This indicates that we are at the end of the sixth day of man’s time, and approaching the seventh day of His Millennial Kingdom rule.  Moses and Elijah speak of two end-time ministries, which at this present time are beginning to function again in power and authority.

At the height of the ministry of Moses, he brought the Lord’s people out of commercial bondage.  They were forced to make bricks without straw, or today, money not backed by gold, which relates to the intense financial pressures that most face in our day and time.

At the height of Elijah’s ministry, he dealt with the prophets of Baal.  Through a visitation of fire (the manifest glory and power of the Lord), false religion was destroyed.  Today, through the gradual increase of the manifest presence of the Lord, many are being set free and transformed, which is far more than legalistic preaching ever accomplished.

“But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.”  II Corinthians 3:18

Before Elijah could be used, he had to sit beside a brook until it dried up.  He then became dependent on provision received through a widow who had only enough for one meal for herself and her son.  Before Moses could be used, he had to be taken into the wilderness and reduced to the point at which he told the Lord that he could no longer speak.

“And Moses said to the Lord, O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since You have spoken to Your servant: but I am slow of speech, and of a slow tongue.”  Exodus 4:10

Moses knew that he was called.  He had attempted in his own strength and ability to fulfill his calling, but he failed and fled into the wilderness, unknowingly into the perfect will of God for him.
