When we go back into the history of our spiritual fore fathers we realize that there is no unheard of situation and that there is no situation that Father has not already prepared an answer for. I know that this is a timeless word that He has for us, for at His mouth is the entrance of light. Light means revelation and light means the showing up of things that were already right there, but we could not for some reason or another see it. We all have been in a situation where we felt we had to defend the portion of the anointing that Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) has given us. In reality we really do not have to defend it, but just manifest it. I would invite you to take a journey back away with me to the days of Moshe' (Moses) and see how he and his brother Aaron had to shut the mouths of those who came against them simply because they were trying to spiritually hijack the God appointed position. No one can take your seat unless you give it up, and even then if they do get away with it, they cannot do much with it, because it was, as far as God is concerned stolen, thereby making it unclean before Him and will not be used according to His plan simply because it was not assigned for the other person to have. This is an encouragement to those who feel as though someone has taken something from them. I must say as I am on this subject that, yes the Lord will raise up someone to do what we were supposed to do if we do not submit to the call. There is always a ram in the bush, so heed to His voice and your destiny.
B'midbar (Numbers) 16
1 Now Korach the son of Yitz'har, the son of K'hat, the son of Levi, along with Datan and Aviram, the sons of Eli'av, and On, the son of Pelet, descendants of Re'uven, took men and 2 rebelled against Moshe. Siding with them were 250 men of Isra'el, leaders of the community, key members of the council, men of reputation. 3 They assembled themselves against
Moshe and Aharon and said to them, "You take too much on yourselves! After all, the entire community is holy, every one of them, and ADONAI is among them. So why do you lift yourselves up above ADONAI's assembly?" 4 When Moshe heard this he fell on his face. 5 Then he said to Korach and his whole group, "In the morning, ADONAI will show who are his and who is the holy person he will allow to approach him. Yes, he will bring whomever he chooses near to himself. Numbers 171 ADONAI said to Moshe, 2 "Speak to the people of Isra'el, and take from them staffs, one for each ancestral tribe from each leader of a tribe, twelve staffs. Write each man's name on his staff; 3 and write Aharon's name on the staff of Levi, for each tribe's leader is to have one staff. 4 Put them in the tent of meeting in front of the testimony, where I meet with you. 5 The staff of the man I am going to choose will sprout buds - in this way I will put a stop to the complaints the people of Isra'el keep making against you." 6 Moshe spoke to the people of Isra'el, and all their leaders gave him staffs, one for each leader, according to their ancestral tribes, twelve staffs. Aharon's staff was among their staffs. 7 Moshe put the staffs before ADONAI in the tent of the testimony. 8 The next day Moshe went into the tent of the testimony, and there he saw that Aharon's staff for the house of Levi had budded - it had sprouted not only buds but flowers and ripe almonds as well. 9 Moshe brought out all the staffs from before ADONAI to all the people of Isra'el, and they looked, and each man took back his staff. 10 ADONAI said to Moshe, "Return Aharon's staff to its place in front of the testimony. It is to be kept there as a sign to the rebels, so that they will stop grumbling against me and thus not die." Well take a look at verse 8 that says the next day (a new beginning) This beginning will put an end to the foolishness. Moshe saw that Aharon's staff budded! A staff represents authority and as you read you see that they all had staffs according to their tribes. We all have authority, but we are in different places, levels, and dimensions. In other words you have to know your place. Moshe was given a charge and knew it.
That word to 'know' is daat (da-aht) it means to intimately know. Now he had to make sure everyone else knew it.You never have to worry about your ministry. Over time Adonai will prove who you are. He will put a signet ring on your finger and a staff in your hand with your name on it and all will know you have been with the Lord.The children of Yisrael were full of complaining against God's choice, but we all know God is faithful and will point out who is who at HIS APPOINTED TIME. In Numbers 16:4 Moshe fell on his face when he heard the complaining.That is what we are to do. Seek God and receive His counsel. in verse 5 Moshe had a response for Korah. (by the way part of his name, rah is translated for evil, but the deeper meaning is lost) Sometimes our fight is on our face.
Choose your weaponry by the Ruach Elohim (Spirit of God.) Korah (the rebellious and lost) had a spirit of false entitlement. We will always come in contact with these types and must always seek Counsel on how to deal with it. Remember, the weapons of our warfare are NOT carnal (by natural and earthly means) but mighty through GOD to the pulling down of strongholds. IF there is anything or anyone in your life that is trying to exalt itself up against what you intimately know about God, get down on your face and gain a way of escape. Remember, this buds' for you!Fear not, nor let your heart be troubled. Hold on to Yeshua, and guard the vision and gifts that HE has given. Amein
