Land of Goshen

The honey sales went over well. I had alot of people ask me about the name Land of Goshen, so I ask my wife to tell the story hope you enjoy this is how we started that name

Gen. 47:27 Now Israel lived in the land of Egypt, in Goshen, and they acquired property in it and were fruitful and became very numerous.

Exodus 8:20-24

Now the Lord said to Moses, “Rise early in the morning and present yourself before Pharaoh, as he comes out to the water, and say to him, ‘Thus says the Lord, “Let My people go, that they may serve Me. For if you do not let My people go, behold, I will send swarms of flies on you and on your servants and on your people and into your houses; and the houses of the Egyptians will be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground on which they dwell. But on that day I will set apart the LAND OF GOSHEN, where My people are living, so that no swarms of flies will be there, in order that you may know that I, the Lord, am in the midst of the land. I will put a division between My people and your people. Tomorrow this sign will occur.”’” Then the Lord did so. And there came great swarms of flies into the house of Pharaoh and the houses of his servants and the land was laid waste because of the swarms of flies in all the land of Egypt.

Exodus 9:22-26

Now the Lord said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand toward the sky, that hail may fall on all the land of Egypt, on man and on beast and on every plant of the field, throughout the land of Egypt.” Moses stretched out his staff toward the sky, and the Lord sent thunder and hail, and fire ran down to the earth. And the Lord rained hail on the land of Egypt. So there was hail, and fire flashing continually in the midst of the hail, very severe, such as had not been in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation. The hail struck all that was in the field through all the land of Egypt, both man and beast; the hail also struck every plant of the field and shattered every tree of the field. Only in the LAND OF GOSHEN, where the sons of Israel were, there was no hail.

These are just two exerpts from the Word of God where we can see that the LORD set apart His people, in the LAND OF GOSHEN, and protected them there from the 'judgment' that was going on all around them. Dwelling in the land of Egypt is depicted in the Word of God on level with 'living in the world' of which we, as believers in JESUS CHRIST, are 'in', but NOT part of.

On a 'personal' note......shortly after we moved into our newly built house, the terrible tornadic storms of 2011 began to sweep across the south and southeast. It was a VERY distressing time and we were 'constantly' being told to seek shelter. On one occasion, as i sat in the small hall bathroom which had no window, I found myself praying "Lord, please just cover us with Your hand till the storm passes by". Immediately I was reminded of the 'LAND OF GOSHEN' and filled with a great peace.......

Out of that difficult time came the assurance that He would do just that and so, OUR 'LAND OF GOSHEN' began. It isn't 'just a name' - it is what we BELIEVE - that the LORD OUR GOD has 'covered' us with His hand, and we abide here, 'under the shadow of His wings'. It isn't about the 'property' being preserved. It IS about our trust in HIM that no matter what comes, we are safely 'hidden in Christ' where we will remain whether in the body, or out of the body! AMEN!!
