Asked for prayer, but limited the sacrifice
“We will go three days’ journey into the wilderness and sacrifice to the Lord our God as He will command us.” So Pharaoh said, “I will let you go, that you may sacrifice to the Lord your God in the wilderness; only you shall not go very far away. Intercede for me.” Exodus 8.27-28
Look at the devil’s cunningness: Pharaoh asked for prayer, but limited the sacrifice.
He knows that prayer alone will not work, and if the sacrifice is not complete, it will not work either.
This makes it easy to separate the three groups of people in the Church.
1º – Those who only want prayer.
2º – Those who supposedly “sacrifice.”
Supposedly, because they present their sacrifice, but do it with limitations.
And the devil doesn’t want us to sacrifice the right way.
3º – Those who are everything for EVERYTHING!
It’s all of them for GOD’S ALL!
This is a true sacrifice.
In the ALL of GOD, the most important is the HOLY SPIRIT.
HE is the One who makes us reign and rule over sin and death.
Without the HOLY SPIRIT, what a person achieves, he will end up losing.
The HOLY SPIRIT does today what the Presence of God did in the past.
The bush became a wonder, and Sinai became the dwelling place of the Most High.
This is what happens with all those who choose to be in the 3rd group.
And the choice is ours!
