The Salvation of God

But Moses, said to the people,” Do not fear! Stand by and see the salvation of the Lord. Exodus 14:13 NASB

The Israelites had knowledge of God. He knew they had heard their cries, they waited for a deliverer. God had shown Himself mighty and powerful and had brought them out of Egypt but at the first obstacle they begin to cry why did you bring us out to the wilderness to die?
How quickly they had forgotten the plaques which had by passed them. God again heard their cry He had the option to let Pharaoh killed them right there, He knew they would complain more and more, but He answered their cry He again show His chosen people His strength and power. He said to Moses “why are you crying out to me? Tell the people to get moving! God parted the sea the Israelites crossed over on dry land.

God saved the Israelites, He gave them a sampling of the true salvation to come. My sisters are you crying out to God today? Why has not God shown you His power and strength? He has chosen you and He has not left you in Egypt. He has brought you out with a mighty hand. The enemy may be pursuing you the sea may be raging in front of you. The only land in view is behind you with the pursuing enemy; but do not fear, don’t be afraid, God opened the sea that you may cross over on dry land. God has provided you your very own personal staff. There is power in your staff just as there was in Moses. Why are you not moving my sister when you are holding the Living Staff, Jesus Christ in your hand, in your heart and in your spirit? “Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and staff protect and comfort me.” Psalm 23:4. Jesus open the way to salvation, He became our salvation, and He saved us. So let me ask again woman, why are you not moving, you have seen the salvation of the Lord, there is no need to be afraid so MOVE, MOVE, MOVE my sweet sister, move forward in the mighty power of the Lord, move in the strength of your God, move in peace and joy with determination move to the promise land.

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away." He who was seated on the throne said, "I am making everything new!" Then he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true." He said to me: "It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him or her (added, Italic mine) who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life. He and she (added, Italic mine) who overcomes will inherit all this, and I will be his and her (added, Italic mine) God and he will be my son and she will be my daughter. (added, Italic mine) Revelation 21:1-7
