Here's your outline for tonight's teaching. Join us at 6 PM EST.
Exodus 3:21,22 KJV
“And I will give this people favour in the sight of the Egyptians: and it shall come to pass, that, when ye go, ye shall not go empty:
“But every woman shall borrow of her neighbour, and of her that sojourneth in her house, jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment: and ye shall put them upon your sons, and upon your daughters; and ye shall spoil the Egyptians.”
Exodus 3:22 NIV
“. . . And so you will plunder the Egyptians.”
Exodus 12:36 NLT
“The Lord caused the Egyptians to look favorably on the Israelites, and they gave the Israelites whatever they asked for. So they stripped the Egyptians of their wealth!”
I had somebody ask me recently, “What can I start doing to become debt?”
I said the question is: “What are you doing that’s keeping you from being debt free?”
Exodus 5:21 KJV
“The foremen said to them, “May the Lord judge and punish you for making us stink before Pharaoh and his officials. You have put a sword into their hands, an excuse to kill us!”
Exodus 6:9 NLT
“So Moses spoke thus to the sons of Israel, but they did not listen to Moses on account of their despondency and cruel bondage.”
Exodus 11:3 AMPC
“And the Lord gave the people favor in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover, the man Moses was exceedingly great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh's servants and of the people.”
Here are seven requirements for your burning bush experience;
1. Move outside your comfort zone.
You will not find nor seek your destiny while residing in your comfort zone.
Exodus 3:2 AMPC
“The Angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush; and he looked, and behold, the bush burned with fire, yet was not consumed.”
Exodus 3:3 AMPC
“And Moses said, I will now turn aside and see this great sight, why the bush is not burned.”
2. Be willing to seek God.
Exodus 3:4 AMPC
“And when the Lord saw that he turned aside to see, God called to him out of the midst of the bush and said, Moses, Moses! And he said, Here am I.”
3. Give Him the reverence He’s due.
Exodus 3:6 AMPC
“Also He said, I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look at God.”
4. Obey your instructions.
“Read your Bible. . .do what it says.”
Exodus 3:5 AMPC
“God said, Do not come near; put your shoes off your feet, for the place on which you stand is holy ground.
5. Don’t question your direction.
Exodus 3:10-11 AMPC
“Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt.
“And Moses said unto God, Who am I, that I should go unto Pharaoh, and that I should bring forth the children of Israel out of Egypt?”
If God gives you a vision He will also give you the ability and opportunity to achieve it.
6. Know you’re not alone.
Exodus 3:12 AMPC
“God said, I will surely be with you; and this shall be the sign to you that I have sent you: when you have brought the people out of Egypt, you shall serve God on this mountain [Horeb, or Sinai].”
Hebrews 13:5 AMPC
“. . . for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)! [Assuredly not!]”
7. Recognize your power.
Exodus 3:19-20 NLT
“But I know that the king of Egypt will not let you go unless a mighty hand forces him. So I will raise my hand and strike the Egyptians, performing all kinds of miracles among them. Then at last he will let you go.”
Acts 1:8 KJV
“… ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you … (then) ye shall become witnesses … .”
The power Jesus promises after the Holy Ghost comes upon you in enabling power (dunamis).
The Greek word dunamis means “ability.”
So let’s look at this verse again as I expand the paraphrase for you.
“You shall receive the ability after the Holy Ghost has come upon you, and you will be able to witness of me simultaneously in Jerusalem, and in Judea, and in Samaria, and to the uttermost parts of the earth.”
Now let’s look at dunamis as it appears in Luke 10:19 where God has given to us total power over the devil.
“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
The first word in this verse that is translated power is the Greek word exousia. It means “delegated power” or technically “authority.”
The second word translated power is the Greek word dunamis which as we’ve just learned means “ability.” So notice carefully what God is actually saying. “I give you authority over all the ability of the devil.”
Are you getting a hold of all of this? You have total authority over all the ability of the enemy. Remember how the scripture ends, “…nothing shall by any means hurt you” (Luke 10:19).
The Bible literally says nothing shall hurt you. It also says you have total power (authority) over (any abilities of) the devil. You never have to lose again. You can always conquer and always triumph in all things.
As I think back over these seven keys. . .I just have one question for you.
Are you ready for your burning bush experience?
