“Now the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: “Speak to the children of Israel, that they turn and camp before Pi Hahiroth… The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace… By faith they passed through the Red Sea as by dry land, whereas the Egyptians, attempting to do so, were drowned” (Ex 14:14; Heb 11:29)
Faith is the assurance, the belief that God’s word is true. Faith is the only spiritual chemistry accepted by God that enables you to pass thru problems and impossibilities to ‘the other side’, where you shall experience the blessings prayed for. True faith is never afraid of troubles. Faith divides the hindrances and makes a way thru them.
Read Exodus 14. God promised His people that He will bring them into a good Land ‘flowing with milk and honey’. God led them out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery and suffering. The Holy Spirit led them as a pillar of fire by night and as a cloud by day. They finally arrived at a place called Pi-Hahiroth, a beach by the Red Sea. The name is difficult to pronounce but I wish that we remember this name. It is a prophetic place of victory. The name means ‘the mouth of escape or the beginning of exit’. The people of God were ‘trapped’ in this place. On the left and right were mountains. Behind, Pharaoh and the Egyptian army came pursuing them. Spiritually, this place stands for death. It is a hopeless place where no man can help. If you are sick, it seems that the doctors have lost hope for you. If you are poor, it seems that you will have no food to eat tomorrow. If you are barren, it seems that you will never be a mother or a father. If you have marital problems, it seems that divorce is the only ‘solution’. If you are single and praying to get married, it seems that you will die single. It is a place of no mercy, no light, no health, no hope, no peace and no joy.
At Pi-Hahiroth, Moses was scared and He cried to the Lord. This is not a place of crying! God shall speak to you as He spoke to Moses. Jehovah God commands Moses to tell His people what to do at this place with a strange name. At Pi-Hahiroth they should ‘stand still and see the salvation of God’. Then they should ‘move forward’. These commands seem like mixed messages. How can you stand still and move forward in the same time? What God was saying is that they should stand still and worship Him! They shall see King Jesus, high and lifted up. As they worship, they will be able to move forward! It is only the worshippers who are able to experience victory and breakthrough. The Egyptians did not worship God as they enter the Red Sea. The waters of judgment covered them and they perished. The unbelievers ‘attempted’ to cross over. The word means to experiment with danger. This is practicing doubt and hoping for the best. It never works! It is a terrible thing to fight the children of God, to enter their miracle, to damage their testimony and to try to steal their victory. The Egyptians died in the process. The people of God saw them dead on the sea shore!
Child of God! The Lord will fight for you! The victory is sure! May your eyes be opened to see that your sickness, your poverty, your bareness, your hindrance to progress, all are dead! May the anointing of victory, breakthrough and crossover manifested at Pi-Hahiroth be revealed to you! Be free! Be healed! Marry and enjoy marriage! Be fruitful! Be blessed! Move forward in life! In Jesus name, amen!
“Who is like You, O Lord, among the gods?
Who is like You, glorious in holiness,
Fearful in praises, doing wonders?” (Ex 15:11)
