Desiring Meat From Egypt
The whole congregation of the sons of Israel grumbled against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness. The sons of Israel said to them, “Would that we had died by the Lord’s hand in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the pots of mIeat, when we ate bread to the full; for you have brought us out into this wilderness to kill this whole assembly with hunger.”
Exodus 16:2-3 NASB
The Lord frees us from Egypt at the time of our salvation. This is the objective Reality. But, the Lord must experientially remove Egypt from our hearts.
The Lord has judged Egypt, which is a type of the world. The Lord sent 10 plagues to show His People what the true state of the world is. Don’t you know that the Lord could have finished off Egypt with but a word? But no, we need the lesson. We need to see the world how the Lord does. The Lord was very patient in teaching the Israelites, and so He is with us. Today, we can see the fruit of sin the world is bearing. There are bombings, shootings, kidnappings, rapes, climate change, disasters and more. This is the natural fruit of the world, under the enemy’s rule, enslaved to sin.
Yet, we still desire the things of this world. We want to be entertained, fulfilled, and successful. We want to find satisfaction in this world. This is just what the Israelites wanted. So many called ones of God want the meat of Egypt today.
I hope the Lord has blocked your way in finding satisfaction from the world. This is great evidence of His care for you. The world is just salt water, which will dehydrate you. The Lord is the fresh Living Water, always new and abundant. He is so available. The Water is flowing, open your mouth and drink!
The Spirit and the Bride say “Come”! (Revelation 22:17)
The dissatisfaction with the world makes a Way for us to find Satisfaction; the hunger and the thirst open the heavens for the Heavenly Manna.
Jesus then said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread out of heaven, but it is My Father who gives you the true bread out of heaven. For the bread of God is that which comes down out of heaven, and gives life to the world.” Then they said to Him, “Lord, always give us this bread.” Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst.
John 6:32-35 NASB
We need to embrace a holy boredom. If you are bored or worn out, don’t go seeking the things of the world for help. Don’t go down to Egypt. Turn to the Lord and offer your boredom to Him. Embrace your boredom as a time to enjoy the Lord. The Lord wants to be our Entertainment. The Lord wants to be our Satisfaction. The Lord wants to be our Enjoyment. God has given us Christ, in the Spirit, to meet all our needs. He is our Life and Life-supply. He is superabundant and always more than we need.
Take Christ as Everything by faith. He is even our Faith. If you need this Satisfaction, turn away from the things of the world and turn to the Lord, within you. Confess your dissatisfaction. Declare to the Father that Christ is your Satisfaction! Whether you feel like it or not, take Him by Faith. It is His responsibility to bring you into the experience of Christ as the Good Land, Christ to meet our every need.
O taste and see that the Lord is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!
Psalms 34:8 NASB
Oh dear Father, wash us a anew in the blood of Jesus and wash us in the water of Your Word. Thank you for cleansing us of our sins and all the worldly dirt. There is no satisfaction in this world. The more we drink, the more thirsty we get. You are the real Food and Water. We eat You and drink You now by Faith. Thank you God for becoming edible, in Christ. We eat You and become constituted with You, to be one with You for Your move and expression on earth. In Jesus’ holy Name, Amen!
Drink! A river pure and clear that’s flowing from the throne;
Eat! The tree of life with fruits abundant, richly grown;
Look! No need of lamp nor sun nor moon to keep it bright, for
Here there is no night!
Do come, oh, do come,
Says Spirit and the Bride:
Do come, oh, do come,
Let him that heareth, cry.
Do come, oh, do come,
Let him who thirsts and will
Take freely the water of life!
Christ, our river, Christ, our water, springing from within;
Christ, our tree, and Christ, the fruits, to be enjoyed therein,
Christ, our day, and Christ, our light, and Christ, our morningstar:
Christ, our everything!
We are washing all our robes the tree of life to eat;
“O Lord, Amen, Hallelujah!”—Jesus is so sweet!
We our spirits exercise, and thus experience Christ.
What a Christ have we!
Now we have a home so bright that outshines the sun,
Where the brothers all unite and truly are one.
Jesus gets us all together, Him we now display
In the local church.
