Warfare Spirituality

mesquite2Moses by Ken Medema--what a song! Praise God!

Old Moses, 'way back there in the wilderness,
saw some smoke, came to the bush, and the bush was burnin'.

God said,
"Take off your shoes, Moses, you're on holy ground.

Moses, I've chosen you to be my man,
Moses, 'way down in Egypt's land.
Moses, I've chosen you to work for me,

Moses, I've chosen you to set my people free!"

"Not me, Lord!
Don't you know I can't talk so good;
I stutter all the time.
Do you know my brother, Aaron?
He can sing like an angel,
Talk like a preacher.
Not me, Lord!
I can't talk so good.

And another thing,
How will they know that I've been here with you?
How will they know what you've sent me to do?
Don't you know that in Egypt, they want little Moses' head?

Don't you know that in Egypt, they want little Moses dead?

Don't you know they'll never hear a single word I'll say!
Maybe you'd get your dirty work done another way!

Not me, Lord!


"What's that in your hand, Moses?"

"It's just a rod."

"Throw it down, Moses."

"Do you mean, like, on the ground?"

"Yes, I said, throw it down, Moses."

"Lord, don't take my rod away from me,
Don't you know it's my only security?
Don't you know when you live here all alone,
A man's gotta have something he can call his own;
Not me, Lord!"


"Throw it down, Moses."

"But, Lord, I ..."

"Throw it down, Moses."

"But ..."

"Throw it down, Moses."

Moses throw the rod on the ground
And the rod became a hissing snake!
Well, Moses started runnin'.
Well, maybe you'd run.

You'd run.
Well, maybe I'd run.

I'd run.
He was a-runnin' from a hot rod!
Runnin' from a hissing snake!

Runnin' scared of what God's gonna do!
Runnin' scared He'll get a hold of you!

And the Lord said,
"Stop,
Pick it up, Moses, by the tail!"



"Lord, you have not lived here very long!
Lord, you've got the whole thing wrong!
Don't you know that you never pick up a hissing snake by his ..."


"Pick it up, Moses!"

Oh, God, it's a rod again, it's a rod again,it's a rod again!


"Do you know what it means, Moses?
Do you know what I'm trying to say, Moses?
The rod of Moses became the rod of God!
With the rod of God, strike the rock and the water will come;

With the rod of God, part the waters of the sea;
With the rod of God, you can strike old Pharaoh dead;

With the rod of God, you can set the people free."


What do you hold in your hand today?
To what or to whom are yo bound?
Are you willing to give it to God right now?
Give it up, Give it up, let it go, let it go,
Throw it down.
