What is In Your Hand?


In the book of Exodus, The LORD appeared to Moses in a burning bush and asked him to go to Pharaoh with a prophetic word.

Moses replied, “But suppose they will not believe me or listen to my voice; suppose they say, ‘The LORD has not appeared to you.’  Then the LORD said to Moses, “What is that in your hand?”  Moses replied “a rod”.

The scripture goes on to say how the LORD commissioned Moses along with Aaron to deliver the Israelites out of Egypt.  Although He released miracles, signs and wonders, Pharaoh resisted the word from the LORD to “Let My people go” until He sent ten plagues on Egypt.

The LORD used Moses with his rod to part the Red Sea for the children of Israel to escape as Pharaoh and his army drowned.

In the book of First Samuel the LORD used a rock and a slingshot in the hands of David to slay Goliath.  He also used Davids mighty men to kill thousands with spears.  One man named Shamgar slayed 600,000 with an ox goad.

Throughout the Bible we see how He used ordinary people in extraordinary ways with objects such as sticks and stones.  The Holy Spirit is saying to us today, what is in your hand?

The LORD says;

“I will use that which I have placed in your hand.  Do not say that I am the least of these or I am unable to speak.  

I will establish you and speak through you.  Do not worry beforehand, or premeditate what you will say.  

But say whatever is given to you at that time; for it is not you who will speak, but the Holy Spirit.  Your words will be spoken from a place of authority.

I will place My anointing upon you in the courts of Pharaoh.  You will understand your potential as you walk in My anointing, demonstrate My power, and release My glory.

 I have placed the rod of authority in your hands, and the sword of the Spirit in your mouth.  You will use My rod of authority to part the sea that is obstructing others from coming into the Kingdom.

 You will use My rod of authority to destroy the attacks of the enemy.

I will use you to deliver My people out of Egypt.  You will deliver the soothsayers, those in the new age and you will set many free from demonic bondage.

There will be a mass Exodus of people coming out of spiritual Egypt, released from the kingdom of darkness, and delivered into the Kingdom of light.  

When it seems like the enemy is gaining on you, you will outwit him as you raise your rod of authority and watch the seas part.  

The plans of the enemy will be demolished.  You are about to cross over into a new dimension and you will surely see my goodness in the land of the living,” says the LORD.

Then the LORD brought me to the New Testament.  The LORD brought unusual miracles by the hands of Paul.  He used napkins and aprons that were touched by Paul to heal the sick and even drive out demons.  He used Peters shadow to heal people.  We are coming in to a time when we will see the power and demonstration of the Holy Spirit once again.

“My word in your mouth is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

You shall decree a thing and it shall be established.  Go forth in all that I have commissioned you to do.  

You will release My light into dark places.  Do not let My word depart from your mouth.  Meditate on it and keep it in the midst of your heart as we are living in times of spiritual confrontation.

I will give you the discernment to recognize the counterfeit from the genuine.  Many will walk in an anointing that will stagger the minds of unbelievers, and bring many into the kingdom in the days ahead,” says the LORD.

“Look among the nations and watch – Be utterly astounded!  For I will work a work in your days which you would not believe, though it were told you”   Habakkuk 1:5.

“And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.  And the children of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left.  And the Egyptians pursued, and went in after them to the midst of the sea, even all Pharaoh’s horses, his chariots, and his horsemen,”   Exodus 14:21-23

“Then David put his hand in his bag and took out a stone; and he slung it and struck the Philistine in his forehead, so that the stone sank into his forehead, and he fell on his face to the earth.  So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone, and struck the Philistine and killed him.  But there was no sword in the hand of David.  Therefore David ran and stood over the Philistine, took his sword and drew it out of its sheath and killed him, and cut off his head with it.  And when the Philistines saw that their champion was dead, they fled,”   1 Samuel 17:50 -51.

“And believers were increasingly added to the LORD, multitudes of both men and women, so that they brought the sick out into the streets and laid them on beds and couches, that at least the shadow of Peter passing by might fall on some of them. Also a multitude gathered from the surrounding cities to Jerusalem, bringing sick people and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were all healed”   Acts 5:14-16.

“Now God worked unusual miracles by the hands of Paul, so that even handkerchiefs or aprons were brought from his body to the sick, and the diseases left them and the evil spirits went out of them”   Acts 19:11-12.

  1. Every knee shall bow and confess Jesus is Lord, above, on earth and below. None will be except, from Cain, to Hitler to Eminem, Jesus Christ is Lord, and worthy of it all! For he laid it all for us first on the Cross 2,000.

    He is Faithful and Just, and his Grace sufficient. He is the only true sure foundation, and it has already being laid.
