Knowing God's Personality, He's So Obvious!

Please help financially, working on two projects that need your help and prayers. The funding needed is trickling in but lacking. http://jeffmorton.blogspot.com/2012/12/money-money-money.html (Thank you) The goal is $2000.

When God hardened Pharaoh's heart one would think he made him the epitome of stubborn but that's not what the word tells us.
Pharaoh took it upon himself to get into the ring with God...He was self determined to beat God down!
Exodus 8:15 But when Pharaoh saw that there was a respite, he hardened his heart, and didn't listen to them, as Yahweh had spoken.
Exodus 8:32 Pharaoh hardened his heart this time also, and he didn't let the people go.
Exodus 9:34 When Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the thunders were ceased, he sinned yet more, and hardened his heart, he and his servants.

In the previous passages Pharaoh hardened his own heart but in the original text or Hebrew the word for "Hardened" is Kabed [Strong's 3513: to be heavy, weighty, or burdensome]
Pharaoh was literally taking on more than he could handle

God however was not hardening Pharaoh's heart in the same manner(?)
Exodus 9:12 Yahweh hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he didn't listen to them, as Yahweh had spoken to Moses
Exodus 10:20 But Yahweh hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he didn't let the children of Israel go.

The original Hebrew word for hardened here is Chazag [Strong's 2388: to strengthen, prevail, harden, be strong, become strong, be courageous, be firm, grow firm, be resolute, be sore]

So, Pharaoh is taking on a fight that is too big for him and God is strengthening him so that he can continue getting his butt kicked . Father, you're so obvious! 

David's father, Jesse sent David into the camp on a Donkey with bread and wine
1 Samuel 16:20 Jesse took a donkey loaded with bread, and a bottle of wine, and a young goat, and sent them by David his son to Saul.
Yahweh sends his son down into Jerusalem on a Donkey representing the bread and wine.
John 12:15 "Don't be afraid, daughter of Zion. Behold, your King comes, sitting on a donkey's colt."
God reminds us that he is repeating these things and how they are done because well, because he has to repeat himself over, and over, and over again concerning the business of raising kids!
Zechariah 9:9 Rejoice greatly, daughter of Zion! Shout, daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King comes to you! He is righteous, and having salvation; lowly, and riding on a donkey, even on a colt, the foal of a donkey. Father, you're so obvious!

Talk about driving a point home! Joshua crossed over the Jordan just before Passover bringing the children into the promised land and then he proceeds to follow the pattern of the Festivals, in order [Just the way God wanted these things to be communicated] Yeshua entered Jerusalem on the tenth day of the 1st month too!
*Passover= Joshua 4:19 The people came up out of the Jordan on the tenth day of the first month, and encamped in Gilgal, on the east border of Jericho.
*Unleavened Bread= Joshua 5:2 At that time, Yahweh said to Joshua, "Make flint knives, and circumcise again the children of Israel the second time." (Remove the foreskin from the camp)
*First Fruits= Joshua 5:13 He said, "No; but I have come now as commander of Yahweh's army." Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and worshiped, and said to him, "What does my lord say to his servant?"
*Pentecost= Joshua 5:13 The prince of Yahweh's army said to Joshua, "Take your shoes off of your feet; for the place on which you stand is HOLY." Joshua did so. (The Spirit of God was in that place)
*Trumpets= Joshua 6:1 Seven priests shall bear seven trumpets of rams' horns before the ark. On the seventh day, you shall march around the city seven times, and the priests shall blow the trumpets.
*Atonement= Joshua 7:25 Joshua said, "Why have you troubled us? Yahweh will trouble you this day." All Israel stoned him with stones, and they burned them with fire and stoned them with stones.
*Tabernacles Joshua 10:23 They did so, and brought those five kings out of the cave to him: the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, and the king of Eglon.
(God was with Joshua when he defeated the five kings who were withstanding the five books of Moses from entering the Land that Yeshua is to inherit of the tribe of Yehuda)
Father, you're so obvious! 
(You want to make sure that we do your Festivals and follow what you taught Moses to teach to Israel.)

You knew that Orpah was going to give birth to Goliath and that Ruth was going to bring forth David
You knew that the battle of David and Goliath is a dress rehearsal for the battle of Yeshua with the nation systems of the statue of Nebuchadnezzar. You presented the statute in a dream and then you presented it with flesh.
Father, you're so obvious!
You loved Moses so much that you buried him yourself and you made sure no one ever found out where
Deuteronomy 34:12 There has not arisen a prophet since in Israel like Moses, whom Yahweh knew face to face, 
Deuteronomy 34:6 He buried him in the valley in the land of Moab over against Beth Peor: but no man knows of his tomb to this day. 
You had Noah build an ark that took 120 years and you allowed Moses your other faithful servant to live 120 years Both of these men were willing to represent the land covenant that you have always intended to establish here in this earth
Father, you're so obvious 

You keep using the numbers that you created to communicate your Festivals, your Calendar, your Perfection, Government, Salvation, Grace, Destruction!
Father, you're so obvious 

Judah is the fourth born of Jacob
Yeshua is born of this lineage in the fourth millennium
He brings forward your planned Gospels, four of them and he completes the first four Festivals or appointments that you ordered beginning in Leviticus 23 but started in Exodus 12:1 with the Passover celebration that you told Aaron and Moses to observe and to teach while you had Pharaoh bobbing and weaving in Egypt!
You have three more appointments to conclude while bringing all of us through three more millenniums included the sabbath Millennial rest...Just like you rested on the 7th day!
Father, you're so obvious!

You created the Mezuzah and told your first born people to nail this to the doorpost of their homes. You wanted us to be mindful of YOUR son, who is the Word made flesh nailed to tree at the gate of the entrance into your holy city, Jerusalem!

You wanted two sticks put together as one so that you could reunite your people! You told your son to go and to gather the lost sheep of the house of Jacob and gather them together into one kingdom. He is working this one out as I write this
Ezekiel 37:15-27
Matthew 15:24 But he answered and said, I was not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

Father, your heart for your people is so obvious! I am watching you strengthen the children of Ismael so they can be gathered together against your children, Israel.......a little more bobbing and weaving before your land covenant with your son is realized. 

YOU, the Elohim of Israel are AWESOME. You show to us your personality,  throughout human history!
Exodus 4:22 You shall tell Pharaoh, 'Thus says Yahweh, Israel is my son, my firstborn, and I have said to you, "Let my son go, that he may serve me;" and you have refused to let him go. Behold, I will kill your son, your firstborn.'"
Ishmael and Esau were first born. The Arabs who want to kill Israel are the descendants of this lineage!
Father, you're so obvious!
If you watch all of the following it will bring you to tears!
The Mezuzah and the Messiah nailed to the threshold of the House of the YHWH
