And Moses said, Thou must give us also sacrifices and burnt offerings, that we may sacrifice unto the Lord our God. Our cattle also shall go with us; there shall not an hoof be left behind; for thereof must we take to serve the Lord our God; and we know not with what we must serve the Lord, until we come thither. Exodus 10:25-26
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. Romans 12:1
As explained, there were 3 days events throughout the bible. In their time, they needed to perform animal sacrifices to The LORD. The sacrifice was a way to serve GOD. But in our time, we are to present our bodies as a living sacrifice to The LORD, that is holy and acceptable to HIM. The word “thither” means “there”. In the underlined Exodus verse above, it means that they know not what sacrifices they will have to make, until they go there.
In reference to the faithful bride, she is preparing and getting ready for the work she have to do during this 3 days event. It is like getting ready behind the scene and rehearse for the drama ahead, which is the upcoming 40 days harvest. As the end times army powered by The HOLY SPIRIT along with their changed incorruptible body, the bride will literally pull people out from the pits of hell. The “there” reference in Exodus is a reference to how the bride will probably know not how she will serve The LORD until she gets there in the process of the Great Last Harvest.
Just as CHRIST was crucified on the cross, the bride is also crucified on the cross. She keeps up the heavy burden of the cross by denying her fleshy nature-the lust of the flesh and the pride of life, by following the will of GOD every step of the way, other than pursuing self will. She goes through full repentance and full surrender continuously towards The LORD GOD almighty.
Below is the verse that confirms the bride’s divine protections:
Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast. Psalm 57:1
In Exodus 11, it shows the tenth judgment. The 3 days of darkness was the ninth judgment.
And the Lord said unto Moses, Yet will I bring one plague more upon Pharaoh, and upon Egypt; afterwards he will let you go hence: when he shall let you go, he shall surely thrust you out hence altogether. Exodus 11:1
Egypt represents the world as mentioned before, and afterwards it will let go of the children of Israel, and they represent the ones who belong to GOD. It is talking about an event that was about to come that will set the Israelites free. The things of this world will no longer be a grip on them because it no longer appeals to the children of GOD, as the world is heading towards destruction. Everything the people cling to will no longer be there. It means that the world will lose its grip to many people as many will come back to The LORD.
The 3 days events of CHRIST’s burial that represents the bride, Jonah in the belly of the whale that represents the backslidden and Saul’s blindness that represents the lost. Two of them which CHRIST and Jonah had a 40 days period after 3 days, although Saul did NOT have that. Those who come to know The LORD after the 40 days harvest, will be those left behind in the tribulation/great tribulation period. Therefore, they either have to turn to The LORD or the government for the mark of the beast in the tribulation/great tribulation. See, the early awakened ones are much blessed.
Personally, I believe in a pre-tribulation rapture and yet I also believe that there is a high possibility that after the rapture of the bride, will proceed the great tribulation. The bride is not subject to the wrath of GOD because she is already in a right standing with HIM, therefore she will be taken out of the destruction scene and into heaven where the marriage supper of the lamb will take place. Of course, there will be blessings upon blessings as she walks into eternity. Pre-tribulation rapture does not have to mean in what I say that the rapture is to occur before any tribulations, no, but what I mean is that if it turns out to be great tribulation when the rapture comes, then I am referring to a pre-great tribulation rapture.
The mark of the beast MUST NOT be taken no matter what, which is the micro-chip RFID implant-for once taken voluntarily, that person will be doomed forever in hell. There will be martyrs because of their faith for CHRIST. The mark of the beast is already here, you don’t have to wait until the tribulation/great tribulation period after the rapture to see it coming and people are already getting it!
And Moses said, Thus saith the Lord, About midnight will I go out into the midst of Egypt: And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the first born of Pharaoh that sitteth upon his throne, even unto the firstborn of the maidservant that is behind the mill; and all the firstborn of beasts. And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there was none like it, nor shall be like it any more. Exodus 11:4-6
It is used in a symbolic manner of the parable of the ten virgins with the use of words “midnight” and “great cry”. There is an event that would cause a great cry throughout the land in Egypt, and it is talking about the world. Things are going to fall like dominos-one event lead to another non-stop.
While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Matthew 25:5-6
It says all were slumbered and slept, that includes ALL the brides. It means that all will be awakened in some manner. Although, the bride are those who watch and pray, constantly being awaked. Those that are the bride will be awaken to their new body and be transformed. Those that the backslidden will be awaken and realize that they need to come back to The LORD. Those that are lost, GOD will reveal to them who HE is with a choice for them to make. They will be also awaken.
The cry was a warning cry, which matches the warning in Exodus about the tenth plague that came. Not that the bridegroom has already arrived, but he was coming on the way, which is a warning for people to be prepared for his coming. In exodus, this cry comes from an event, that it was so destructive that it caused massive deaths. This cry was so significant, because it was the wake up call and a warning to the people to be awaken, for what has taken place. In Exodus, it were the deaths of the firstborn. This symbolize that those who are not covered in the blood. It will affect EVERY house in the land. The cry in Exodus is all about the first calamity that will cause people to let go of the things of this world.
The bride gets to be transformed into an incorruptible body because she is ready, and she is in the “special” group, while others who are not ready are the backslidden, lukewarm and the lost. The bride’s fleshy nature has been crucified, therefore her case matches CHRIST’s death, burial, resurrection and ascension pattern.
Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. Matthew 25:7
They were all arose, which means they were ALL awakened in a spiritual sense in terms of the bride, backslidden and the lost.
But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. Matthew 25:9
The foolish went into the world, and they did not let go of the world. Not long but some time passes by that the bridegroom has arrived.
Remember in past post, it has been mentioned about the mirror effect of Revelation 9 with Exodus 10. It was a reflection in reverse. So this cry at the last judgment in Exodus at midnight, is going to be the first several occurrences that will go like a domino effect. You see one thing and the rest all falls into place. It is about several calamities that would fall like BAM, BAM, BAM, BAM all the way!
And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead. Exodus 12:30
There will be not one household that will not be affected during the upcoming 3 days of darkness event, of those who are not covered in the blood. The cry was caused by the massive destructive death event. This is also about the time of separation. Those who are not covered in the blood will be treated differently and GOD is showing the difference. This is showing people how those who follow HIM, love HIM and seek HIM will be protected, and simply those who do not will not be protected.
But against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog move his tongue, against man or beast: that ye may know how that the Lord doth put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel. Exodus 11:7
This represents that GOD put a difference between those who are of the world and those who are not of the world, but are of GOD’s. It shows how HE handles HIS children and what HE does for them.
It is about a time to shine for HIM, because HE is going to make it obvious. Those that are of the world will possibly want what the children of GOD have, because they see that the children of GOD have protection and peace that they do not have. It is all about seeing GOD is with HIS children. This attracts those lost souls to come to HIM, for they see the goodness GOD offers, especially they see that HE is the ONLY answer when hope comes to an end.
GOD loves all people, not just those who follow HIM. HE does NOT want any to perish, that is what the 3 days of darkness is all about-HIS great act of mercy even upon this fallen and extremely wicked generation. HE is going to send out the last call of repentance to bring in as many as possible into HIS fold in the last days, before HE pours out HIS wrath in the tribulation/great tribulation period after the rapture of the bride.
For the children of Israel walked forty years in the wilderness, till all the people that were men of war, which came out of Egypt, were consumed, because they obeyed not the voice of the LORD: unto whom the LORD sware that he would not shew them the land, which the LORD sware unto their fathers that he would give us, a land that floweth with milk and honey. Joshua 5:6
Here is another 40 after 3 pattern, after the 3 days of darkness as mentioned in Exodus.
Part 10 shall be continued in another post.
