OBTAINING THE SAVING HELP OF THE LORD (3)
Read – EXODUS 17:8-13; 1 CORINTHIANS 9:27
All Bible interpreters agree that Moses was a type of Jesus. Moses acted as a Prophet and Intercessor for Israel. It was the intercession of Moses that resulted in the victory of Joshua and the people of Israel over Amalek. Amalek is a type of the flesh. You will notice that Joshua actually had to go into the battle with Amalek but Moses went up the mount of God. The believer is called to wage warfare against the flesh; he is expected to put his flesh under. The intercession of Jesus, like that of Moses, plays a major role in the victory of the believer over the flesh. The Holy Spirit is the One who brings the effects of that intercession into reality in our lives on a daily basis. Without this work of the Holy Ghost, it will be next to impossible for the believer to gain victory over the flesh. Thank God, unlike Moses, our Intercessor Jesus Christ, never grows weary. His intercession makes perfect victory over Satan, the flesh and the world possible; and the Holy Spirit makes the victory efficacious in our lives. Can you begin to get a picture of how the ministry of the Lord Jesus as our Intercessor now at the right hand of the Father and the Holy Ghost as our Intercessor in our hearts on the earth are linked to produce the results that the intercession of Jesus is obtaining in our lives now?
PRAYER: Lord, I embrace the help that Your intercession is making available in my life and destiny; I receive personal victory in putting my flesh under in Jesus’ name. Amen!
