The bible records in Exodus 18.1 that Jethro was the pharaoh’s high priest in Midian and also the father-in-law of Moses. Over the long period of time that Moses lived with him, Jethro was being blessed by the presence of Moses. This is an important lesson for us to realize that we are a blessing in the situations we find ourselves despite the personal challenges involved.
As Jethro grew closer to Moses, he changed from being a high priest of dark occultism to become righteous. This was possible for two reasons.
1) the greatness of divine Presence flowing from Moses’ soul,
2) the openness of Jethro to learn.
Jethro is an example of transformation of consciousness from extreme negative behavior of darkness to the other extreme of high priest positive behavior.
The real Hebrew name for the book of Exodus is the Book of Names. Our lessons and tools obtained from this book study is found in the names that carry codes for us to discover and use spiritually. Our study aim in the MMM leads each of us on a discovery project to our own transformation of spiritual consciousness.
The story of Jethro is a great discovery for each soul.
Jethro had been trained in the negative occults as high priest and rose to high public acclaim in that role. So we can be sure that his ego was well patted up also. This highlights us to the fact that Jethro was manifesting the energy of death and darkness. However, we know that all Jethro heard and saw with Moses changed him over a long period of time.
Another secret scripture lesson for us to use is the one that simply says at:
Exodus 18.1, “And Jethro heard.”
When we read this particular scripture we can use mind over matter type prayer to cleanse and remove darkness and death also.
Jethro left his great position because he knew and heard or experienced the great power of Moses and his Light Presence company.
Jethro left and went to the desert with Moses’ family and proclaimed verse 11,
“Now I know that your God is greater than all other Gods.”
Jethro went on to advise Moses how to introduce ways to delegate caring for others in the camp. Moses took Jethro’s advice of delegation and taught his people. Then Moses sent Jethro home to his own country.
We can each of us learn from this how to pray for change by moving from physical action prayer into mind over matter prayer as we “jerico” silently with others.
