Seeing the Invisible

Seeing the Invisible
A sermon by Apostle Aje Pelser, preached online for Harvester HOME live streaming, 5th Sept. 2021

Heb 11:23 By faith Moses, when he was born, was hidden three months by his parents, because they saw he was a beautiful child; and they were not afraid of the king’s command.
Heb 11:24 By faith Moses, when he became of age, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter,
Heb 11:25 choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin,
Heb 11:26 esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt; for he looked to the reward.
Heb 11:27 By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king; for he endured as seeing Him who is invisible.
Heb 11:28 By faith he kept the Passover and the sprinkling of blood, lest he who destroyed the firstborn should touch them.
Heb 11:29 By faith they passed through the Red Sea as by dry land, whereas the Egyptians, attempting to do so, were drowned.

Moses shows us the ways to see the invisible God.
1. Get rid of fear. Faith sees spiritual substance, but fear blinds you. Heb. 11:23
2Ti 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
Contrast s spirit of fear with the 7 spirits of God – actually 7 characteristics of God’s spirit:
Isa 11:2 The Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon Him, The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD.

2. Make a choice for God and reject the worldly temptations. Heb. 11:24,25
One needs to discern that the pleasures of sin are passing, but at God’s right hand are pleasures forevermore.
3. Look for the greater riches that come from suffering for Christ. Heb. 11:26
We are looking for the eternal weight of glory that rests on us because we are willing to suffer for the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
2Co 4:16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.
2Co 4:17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory,
2Co 4:18 while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

4. Forsake and deliver people from that which enslaves – Egypt. Heb. 11:27
Egypt has played a major role in the lives of most of the patriarchs of our faith: Abraham; Joseph; Moses and of course our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. God allows a time of Egypt in our lives to show us what the world has to offer and then redeems us form it and all its entrapments. It works out for our preservation in the long run, because we realize that God’s kingdom and anointing, the glory of knowing Him and operating by His Spirit is far above anything this little world of Egypt can offer. God is not scared to be juxtaposed or placed alongside the reward systems of the world. Look at their end!
5. Endure by seeing Him who is invisible always before you.
Endurance has to do with a mental picture that you see and feel beyond the physical realm. Visualization is a key factor in success in sports, business and life I general. But when that visualization is accompanied with the substance of faith, it really starts to work in and through you. We often get dreams and visions about what we are doing. God shows us personally but He also shows many people around the world and they send us theses visions and we reply to them that God’s internet is faster than fibre networks! It is often so accurate and we fulfil it to the last detail. That is also why we are busy with a great work in the earth and the people who know their God collectively, will do great exploits in a shorter time. God is speeding up the processes of Jesus’ return and the global church is experiencing exponential growth. There is a convergence of purpose in the end times that if you access it, will slingshot you into a momentum you couldn’t generate by yourself even if you trued.

6. Access the Passover Lamb’s power over death. Heb. 11:28
Moses was a prophet and his actions actually preceded and predicted the Messiah’s work on the cross which also happened at the Passover. Enacting the lamb that was slain so death could Passover of the firstborn of Israel was exactly coordinated by God to prepare for the final sin offering of Jesus on the cross, once and for all!
7. Walk through the oceans and exercise power over all spheres in Jesus’ name. See your enemies perish. Heb. 11:29
Both Moses and Jesus exercised power over nature and specifically the sea. Moses later appeared with the prophet Elijah at the mount of transfiguration to speak to Jesus about his decease. See Life of Christ Journey 34a:
Luk 9:28 Now it came to pass, about eight days after these sayings, that He took Peter, John, and James and went up on the mountain to pray.
Luk 9:29 As He prayed, the appearance of His face was altered, and His robe became white and glistening.
Luk 9:30 And behold, two men talked with Him, who were Moses and Elijah,
Luk 9:31 who appeared in glory and spoke of His decease which He was about to accomplish at Jerusalem.

Note that Jesus went up the mountain to pray. He had a lifestyle of prayer. He did not go up the mountain to get transfigured into glory. Your transfiguration will also come out of a lifestyle of prayer and God will send you messages to remind you for what you are becoming a living sacrifice on the earth.
Serving the Lord and seeing the invisible is a spiritual journey:
Joh 4:24 God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

There are blessings for you if you believe first without seeing:
Joh 20:29 Jesus said to him, “Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

There is an eternal weight of glory that rests on you because you are willing to suffer for the invisible God that no one else sees at first:
2Co 4:17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory,
2Co 4:18 while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
