IDENTIFYING THE PHARAOH THAT REFUSES TO LET US GO
Ego and self awareness are indicators of a parallel independent government at work within us.
They directly oppose to man’s original design to abide under the canopy and covering of God, which provides God’s government and also awareness according to His point of view, and therefore the correct image of self and creation.
They are the Pharaoh that keep us trapped in the spiritual Egypt as slave under the Law.
Just like the WAS, IS and IS TO COME of God’s government is founded on the eternal sacrifice of the Lamb, the Self or Ego has a parallel governmental Past, Present, and Future based on the body that is outside eternity, and uses self awareness as the ‘book’ to track and record our life according to the knowledge of the Tree of Good and Evil. This is the book(s) of the dead, as well as the represented kingdom of death, that has to come under the judgement of Christ, for its demand of justice based on the law to be forever extinguished, and its record destroyed by the work of the Cross.
2 Cor 5:10 “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.”
Rev 20:12 “And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books.”
CALLING THE NEW DAY TO DAWN UPON US – COMING OUT FROM UNDER THE LAW
As we walk on the Way, Truth and Life that Christ has set open for us, we journey through the valley of the shadow of death (Egypt) holding on to God’s staff (Ps 23), which is the walking in His ways and keep His instructions mentioned in Zachariah 3:7 that is meant to gradually pair our government with God’s one.
In the process our ego (I) point of view must decrease, while God’s point of view must increase in us, until the pairing of governments successfully enables us to discern correctly what is good and what is evil according to God’s standpoint, which causes the division of the spirit from the soul, or the wheat from the tares.
This breaks the greatest ‘bewitchment’ upon us, which is the Law (Gal 3), and like the Red Sea, the waters of our conscious, subconscious, and unconscious mind (from the shallow to the deep) all respond in unison to the staff of divine mercy empowered in our hand, and obediently part before us to let us cross to the other side.
This is the point of sufficient freedom that enables us to completely abandon and walk out of our independent government to be fully and directly translated under God’s government which corresponds to the Day of Rest of God.
Self awareness, as the king in its kingdom, has to completely abdicate the role of shepherding (“Let my people go, that they may serve Me.” – Ex 9:1), and let God alone be the shepherd upon us, His people!
IMPERFECTION (falling short = SIN singular word) highlighted by the law, is our true land of Egypt. In order to come out of it, we have to fully agree with the plan of God, and entirely accept the sacrifice of Christ to ransom us from imperfection.
Christ IS the One who is supposed to COMPLETE us by design. We can only be made PERFECT and FINISHED in the eye of God by accepting to be completed by Him alone and completely abstain from our work.
Only at that point we come out of the shadow of death, and receive new life by the power of the Resurrection of Christ, because we have truly participated of His death and burial, by abdicating our position of king in our kingdom.

Insights from 1 Corinthians 15
This now is the time of the end spoken of in verse 24. “24 Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power.” Jesus will have put all of His enemies under His feet including the last enemy which his death. Verse 28 28” Now when all things are made subject to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subject to Him who put all things under Him, that God may be all in all.” Jesus will then subject Himself to the Father. Right now Jesus has the name that is above all names. When the end fully comes the Father will again have the name that is above all names. Jesus will subject His government to the government of the Father. This is something that we are being asked to do in this current time. It is time to subject our personal government totally to God’s government leaving us with no self-government.
The last enemy is death. The lost dead have recently begun to be raised from the dead. The men in white linen were raised from the dead at the time that Jesus was raised from the dead. Jesus and the men in white linen currently have their new bodies. Now the lost dead are being raised to have their new bodies. In this time of resurrection, we can believe for our own bodies to be changed. “51 Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.”
It is something that we can believe for if we chose to do so. What are we to believe for? “35 But someone will say, “How are the dead raised up? And with what body do they come?” 36 Foolish one, what you sow is not made alive unless it dies. 37 And what you sow, you do not sow that body that shall be, but mere grain—perhaps wheat or some other grain. 38 But God gives it a body as He pleases, and to each seed its own body.” We are to believe for a sowing of our physical body.
We can sow our natural body in faith. Sow it as a seed. Believe that God will give you a body as He pleases. “42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. The body is sown in corruption, it is raised in incorruption. 43 It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness, it is raised in power. 44 It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.” We choose to sow our natural body. We believe that God will raise it as spiritual body.
Verse 45 makes it clear that the spiritual body that is resurrected is that of the last Adam. “The first man Adam became a living being. The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.” (Verse 45)
