Previous article: Prepare for your exodus experience
As children of the Most High God (El ELYON), we will have to protect the physical and spiritual babies we are impregnated with. If not, Pharaoh, who is a symbol of the enemy, will seek to kill our babies.
In Exodus 1:15-21 (NIV), the king of Egypt told the Hebrew midwives to kill the Hebrew male babies during childbirth. Why? Because he was threatened by the large population of the Hebrew men.
However, because Shiphrah and Puah feared the Lord, they disobeyed Pharaoh and let the boys live.
A similar situation happened during the time of Jesus's birth. Do you remember? Herod wanted to kill all the male babies who were two years old or younger (Matthew 2:16 reads).
Now, when Pharaoh noticed the babies were still being born, he summoned the midwives and asked them why they were letting the boys live. Shiphrah and Puah told him that unlike the Egyptian women, Hebrew mothers gave birth before the midwives arrived.
By disobeying the king, those two women found favor in God’s eyes, so the King of kings was kind to them and gave them families of their own. Thus, the Israelites continued to multiply.
What can we learn from that true story?
The devil will do whatever possible to abort your natural and spiritual babies. Therefore, pray that the Holy Spirit will send you some Shiphrahs and Puah to help you deliver your babies safely. Also, continue to pray and guard all that the Father has entrusted to you by living a consecrated life.
Our archenemy is merciless, so you must become violent in spiritual warfare when it comes to wickedness (Matthew 11:12). Bind the enemy by the Blood of Jesus and by the word of your testimony (Revelation 12:11). Also praise the Lord endlessly because He lives in your praise and praise will repel the forces of darkness in your life.
Meditate on these Bible verses
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints (Ephesians 6:12-18).
