Exodus 32

1 And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.

2 And Aaron said unto them, Break off the golden earrings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them unto me.

3 And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron.

4 And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.

5 And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, To morrow is a feast to the Lord.

6 And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play.

7 And the Lord said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves:

8 They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.

9 And the Lord said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people:

10 Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation.

11 And Moses besought the Lord his God, and said, Lord, why doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people, which thou hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a mighty hand?

12 Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, and say, For mischief did he bring them out, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth? Turn from thy fierce wrath, and repent of this evil against thy people.

13 Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, to whom thou swarest by thine own self, and saidst unto them, I will multiply your seed as the stars of heaven, and all this land that I have spoken of will I give unto your seed, and they shall inherit it for ever.

14 And the Lord repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people.

15 And Moses turned, and went down from the mount, and the two tables of the testimony were in his hand: the tables were written on both their sides; on the one side and on the other were they written.

16 And the tables were the work of God, and the writing was the writing of God, graven upon the tables.

17 And when Joshua heard the noise of the people as they shouted, he said unto Moses, There is a noise of war in the camp.

18 And he said, It is not the voice of them that shout for mastery, neither is it the voice of them that cry for being overcome: but the noise of them that sing do I hear.

19 And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp, that he saw the calf, and the dancing: and Moses’ anger waxed hot, and he cast the tables out of his hands, and brake them beneath the mount.

20 And he took the calf which they had made, and burnt it in the fire, and ground it to powder, and strawed it upon the water, and made the children of Israel drink of it.

21 And Moses said unto Aaron, What did this people unto thee, that thou hast brought so great a sin upon them?

22 And Aaron said, Let not the anger of my lord wax hot: thou knowest the people, that they are set on mischief.

23 For they said unto me, Make us gods, which shall go before us: for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.

24 And I said unto them, Whosoever hath any gold, let them break it off. So they gave it me: then I cast it into the fire, and there came out this calf.

25 And when Moses saw that the people were naked; (for Aaron had made them naked unto their shame among their enemies:)

26 Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the Lord’s side? let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him.

27 And he said unto them, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Put every man his sword by his side, and go in and out from gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbour.

28 And the children of Levi did according to the word of Moses: and there fell of the people that day about three thousand men.

29 For Moses had said, Consecrate yourselves today to the Lord, even every man upon his son, and upon his brother; that he may bestow upon you a blessing this day.

30 And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses said unto the people, Ye have sinned a great sin: and now I will go up unto the Lord; peradventure I shall make an atonement for your sin.

31 And Moses returned unto the Lord, and said, Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold.

32 Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin–; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written.

33 And the Lord said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.

34 Therefore now go, lead the people unto the place of which I have spoken unto thee: behold, mine Angel shall go before thee: nevertheless in the day when I visit I will visit their sin upon them.

35 And the Lord plagued the people, because they made the calf, which Aaron made.

  1. Wow, going along with the crowd is not what you should do as Aaron found out in this chapter. So quickly did they (the Israelites) forget all that God had brought them through. We must always be mindful of who and what is influencing our walk with the Lord. JESUS today (in 2016) YOU will SAVE me. Thank you Lord for loving us so.

    Aaron quickly agreed with the people and made them the golden calf. He didn’t even take the time to reason with them about committing this sin. It shows how far from God the Israelite people had become while living in Egypt. The Lord says he will blot out the ones who sin against him-He has both the Book of Remembrance and the Book of Life. If we are quick to repent and return to God, He forgives. However, he did plague the people after this sin. It is better to endure correction and chastisement here than to be lost for eternity.

  4. Walk in the Spirit

    7 And the Lord said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves:

    11 And Moses besought the Lord his God, and said, Lord, why doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people, which thou hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a mighty hand?

    When I read this I was a little amused by the conversation between a God and Moses. God says these stiffneck people are yours and Moses turns around and says wait a minute, these are Your people I only did what You told me to do.

    So, the question is “who do the people belong to?” While no one wants to claim them the reality is two fold. The people belong to God but there desires, actions, and mindses are stuck in there humanity; making them carnal. The Bible says a carnal mind is enmity with God.

    God was say they cannot be mine and war against me. As long as they war against me we cannot go anywhere together. It was the leadership and wisdom of Moses that stood between God and man that by verse 14 “And the Lord repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people.”- that we get a clear picture. The people are God’s but they need a little more direction and teaching.

    What I learned from this is I must walk in the spirit in order to truly be His’ in every area of my life. For my human thought and desires at times will persuade me to desire and come up with ideas that will war against the will of God for my life.

    Lesson two is before I consider someone as unreachable I must first be the one that stands between them and God’s wrath. I must also consider if the person is spiritually blind to what is going on. I’m pretty sure that after these two steps we will realize that no one is unreachable until they take their last beath.

    In 2016 I Must walk in the spirit there is no day off. For the day 8 decide to take off and be carnal could be the day God needed me or needed to speak a word to me.

  5. FLIP THE SCRIPT ON THE PREACHER

    11 And Moses besought the Lord his God, and said, Lord, why doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people, which thou hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a mighty hand?

    What caught my attention today is the fact that the same people that GOD called Moses out of the desert to deliver, GOD now desires to destroy. In Exodus 3 GOD sends Moses to deliver the people from the bondage of the world.

    Exodus 3:10 Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt.

    In Exodus 32 the same man of GOD pleads for their lives with GOD.

    9 And the Lord said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people:
    10 Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation.

    Moses still had promise from GOD. “I will make of thee a great nation”. However he chose to protect the people that he had invested in and fought for.

    I am thankful for men of GOD that have protected us from the world and from the judgment of GOD.

  6. 1 And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.

    Many times when you separate yourself unto the lord, those who once stood by you will decide that they want nothing to do with what you have become. Friends and family are lost on this walk towards the cross but God is always near.

  7. This chapter reminds me of a popular saying “When the cats away the mice will play.” Whether the man of God is with you or off getting a word from the Lord for the people, God still sees and knows everything. At a time like this, your christian integrity stands out and reveals if you are living the way you live for man or for God. If it’s for man you are going to do what you want, when you want but if it’s for the Lord, it doesn’t matter if man is participating or not, you are doing it as unto the Lord and it doesn’t change depending on who is around.

    It’s time to allow God to establish guidelines in our lives that no matter what it’s between us and God and we are not changing!

  8. Our God is great in Mercy, and Grace. Full of understanding.He never asks us to do anything that he hasn’t done himself.
    Even God repents.

    14 And the Lord repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people.

  9. Yet now if though wilt forgive their sin and if not blot me I pray thee out of thy book which though hast written Exodus 32 :32

  10. 7. And the Lord said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves:

    8. They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.
    …..
    31 And Moses returned unto the Lord, and said, Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold.

    It’s easy for us to forget that God is omniscient and already knew what we have just found out. We must learn to trust and be obedient – He knows what’s ahead.

  11. Leadership!!

    “31-32″ MSG
    Moses went back to GOD and said, “This is terrible. This people has sinned—it’s an enormous sin! They made gods of gold for themselves. And now, if you will only forgive their sin. . . . But if not, erase me out of the book you’ve written.

    A true leader takes responsibilty for those he is leading. Moses pleaded with God to forgive their sins and if He would not then hold him accountable also. Everyone wants to be a leader. However, few are prepared to accept the accountability that goes with it. But you can’t have one without the other. They are two sides of the same coin.

  12. 35 And the Lord plagued the people, because they made the calf, which Aaron made.

    God loves us so much but hates when we don’t put him 1st. No matter what happens God always knows everything. Don’t play around with the things of God because He knows everything and is watching us. He knows our heart, our desires, or passion, and our future. Don’t run away from the things of God let’s grow spiritually to be sensitive to Gods will and help lead others to Christ. Our rebellion not only affects us but those that are our us. Either you live for Christ or for the Devil.

  13. Exodus 32:9-10

    9 Then the Lord said, “I have seen how stubborn and rebellious these people are. 10 Now leave me alone so my fierce anger can blaze against them, and I will destroy them. Then I will make you, Moses, into a great nation.”

    Mercy was granted in the form of harsh consequences. They were made to drink the melted calf water. They witness 3,000 of their kin be killed by their own people. Then a pestilence broke out.

    God originally wanted to unleash his fierce anger and wrath. He wanted them to be destroyed completely. Yet Moses asked God to spare them.

    This was a horrible consequence but the consequences of them getting away with this gross idolatry was far worse. They would have destroyed themselves completely, and caused irreparable damage to the plan of God.

    “So I told them, ‘Whoever has gold jewelry, take it off.’ When they brought it to me, I simply threw it into the fire—and out came this calf!””
    ‭‭Exodus‬ ‭32:24‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Today I write Isaiah Morgan’s commit for the blog. He says, ” Dadda, today I learned that Aaron lied, how can he throw gold into the fire and a calf just come out.???” Ha ha ha

  15. 31 And Moses returned unto the Lord, and said, Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold.

    32 Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin–; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written.

    33 And the Lord said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.

    34 Therefore now go, lead the people unto the place of which I have spoken unto thee: behold, mine Angel shall go before thee: nevertheless in the day when I visit I will visit their sin upon them.

    35 And the Lord plagued the people, because they made the calf, which Aaron made.
    In verse 24, Aaron states that the calf came out of the fire. God clearly knows what we have done and what we haven’t done. Don’t lie to God, to yourself, or to the man of God.

  16. 1 And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.
    2 And Aaron said unto them, Break off the golden earrings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them unto me.
    3 And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron.
    4 And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.

    The sell out preacher.

    A Pastors responsibilities are great. Not only do they spend countless hours in study and serving the congregation. But many worry about saying the smoothest words.
    As I was reading this passage my mind when to the non-denominational movement. The,” Let me hear good, non offensive , sweet sounding, words.” The congregation thinks they know better than the preacher, but they don’t. I have seen great men and women of God lose out ,due to there response to a man of God that has warned them of something. We must be cautious of our attitude towards the man of God that is in our lives. Yes, the things that he says are non always popular. And yes, when the word cuts us it hurts. But I thank God every day for my man of God,Pastor Watts , who has a backbone and stands true on the word of God. And allows him to guild him in his preaching.
    Don’t sell out just because it sounds good. If it sounds to good to be true. It more than likely is.

  17. Ex. 32:1 & 3-4
    1) AND when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.

    3) And all the people brake off the golden earrings, which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron.
    4) And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.

    I just wanted to say how thankful I am for our church family.
    Sometimes Pastor has to be away from us for a time, and I am so thankful for Men of God who step-up and into position, who stand firm in their faith in God, who stand with Pastor and under his authority, and lead the church correctly. They don’t just let anything happen, but they take care and protect the church of God.

    Pray for these great men as they GROW in God.

  18. And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.
    Exodus 32:1 KJV

    It is always important to be prepaired to wait on the Lord for any situations. It is when we fail to wait on God that everything goes wrong because we put our human efforts to what God does in the supernatural. We must remember that God doesnt work on our schedule and he doesnt need our help.

  19. Obey God’s word and obey the man of God. Bring your offerings and the lord will bless you. My favorite part of this was chapter 13 .

  20. 20 And he took the calf which they had made, and burnt it in the fire, and ground it to powder, and strawed it upon the water, and made the children of Israel drink of it.

    I’ve seen people train their dog not to mess on the floor by sticking his nose in it. Moses did the same here.

    2 Peter 2

    1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
    2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
    3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
    4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast [them] down to hell, and delivered [them] into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
    5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth [person], a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;
    6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned [them] with an overthrow, making [them] an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;
    7 And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:
    8 (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed [his] righteous soul from day to day with [their] unlawful deeds;)
    9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:
    10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous [are they], selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.
    11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.
    12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;
    13 And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, [as] they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots [they are] and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you;
    14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:
    15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam [the son] of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;
    16 But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice forbad the madness of the prophet.
    17 These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.
    18 For when they speak great swelling [words] of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, [through much] wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.
    19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.
    20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
    21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known [it], to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
    22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog [is] turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

    What a gross sin to know the Lord and to turn away from him. Let us this year GROW in the Lord, know him and keep him first!

  21. God is a jealous God and deserves the praise for what He does for us. Building or having a separate alter to give thanks to does nothing for us except set us up for sin.

    Let us give thanks to the one who is worthy!

  22. 33 And the Lord said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.

    We must watch what we do so we do not sin against God. It is easy to get caught up in the things of this world. As a child of God we must stay focused.

  23. Exodus 32:10 Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation.

    Even as our Lord tested the devotion of two of His disciples (Luke 24:28), so here God tested Moses’ singleness of purpose.

  24. 32 Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin–; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written.

    33 And the Lord said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.

    Moses knows that sin is death in the eyes of God, but he pleads mercy for the sinner. God doesn’t take sin very lightly no matter the plead.

    It’s not worth giving your live to sin, get right with God other wise your name will be blotted from the book of life.

  25. 19 And it came to pass, as soon as he came nigh unto the camp, that he saw the calf, and the dancing: and Moses’ anger waxed hot, and he cast the tables out of his hands, and brake them beneath the mount.

    20 And he took the calf which they had made, and burnt it in the fire, and ground it to powder, and strawed it upon the water, and made the children of Israel drink of it.

    The wrath of Moses was messy and destroyed the handiwork of God. Moses lashed out and even though he destroyed the idol he destroyed the tablets of stone God wrote on Himself. There was unnecessary judgement dealt to the people that was not from God. Gods judgement was swift and killed about 3000 men. Had Moses only carried out Gods judgement the tablets would have remained intact and the process of getting them would not have to be repeated. Moses first reacted in his anger. We can also find ourselves reacting to anger instead of responding with Gods will. When we find ourselves in that situation we need to turn our attention off our emotions and focus on God. His response will always be better than our reactions.

  26. 1 And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up, make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not what is become of him.

    Sometimes in a season of waiting or tarrying, we can be too anxious and decide to move on our own accord instead of waiting from a word from God on what he would have us to do. The people of Israel got impatient waiting for a word from Moses and they decided to worship another God instead.

    They ended up paying for it spiritually and we can too if we decide to do something for our own will instead of seeking God first on what he would have us to do in our lives.

  27. v19 ” : And Moses’ waxed hot, and he cast the tables out of his hand, and brake them beneath the mount”

    We must be careful how we express our anger. … and submitted to GOD’S CONTROL .

    James 1:19 -20 ” Everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger; for anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God”

  28. And the Lord said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou broughtest out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves:
    it is sad to see the digression of the people of God so quickly by a lot of themselves to turn away from God and not only to stop serving God but to begin to serve idols as well. Let us not forget what God has brought us from and cling to him and never let the enemy turn us around and get us to worshiping idols.

  29. 31 And Moses returned unto the Lord, and said, Oh, this people have sinned a great sin, and have made them gods of gold.

    32 Yet now, if thou wilt forgive their sin–; and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written.

    I love that even though Moses was angry with the people he still went and pleaded for the people and was willing to be blotted out of the book of life for them, he was willing to take the blame. I believe their punishment could have been much worse if it wasn’t for Moses going to God on their behalf. I beleive that even though we rub Pastor the wrong way at times he still goes to God for us! Thank you Jesus for a caring and loving Man and Woman of God in our lives.

    God is great and he is greatly to be praised!

  30. 10 Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation. 11 And Moses besought the Lord his God, and said, Lord, why doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people, which thou hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a mighty hand?

    The Creator (Jesus) would have made an end to them, if it had not been for the man of God (Moses). One may never know what the prayers of the man of God keeps one from; until one turns and walks away. Dear God, awaken us to both the necessity and blessing, of reverence and obedience; “In God we (I) trust”. “One Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all”. May God Bless America, Israel, Jerusalem, and you all in Jesus name, Amen!

  31. The great evil of sin appears in the price of pardon. We are Suppose to love our neighbour as ourselves, and not more than ourselves.But having that mind which was in Christ, he was willing to lay down his life in the most painful manner, if he might thereby preserve the people.

  32. “So Moses went back to the Lord. He said, “These people have committed a terrible sin. They have made a god out of gold for themselves. Now please forgive their sin. But if you won’t, then erase my name from the scroll you have written.””
    ‭‭Exodus‬ ‭32:31-32‬ ‭NIRV‬‬

    Moses had so much compassion for the people he was leading. He stood in the gap and change the outcome of Gods plan. I pray that we as overseers of new believers would begin to think and pray like Moses, “Save my friends or take my life…. ”  that we would travail until Christ be formed in them. 

    “My dear children, I am in pain for you. Once again I have pain like a woman giving birth. And my pain will continue until Christ makes you like himself.”
    ‭‭Galatians‬ ‭4:19‬ ‭NIRV‬‬

  33. “And GOD did think twice. He decided not to do the evil he had threatened against his people.”
    ‭‭Exodus‬ ‭32:14‬ ‭MSG‬‬
    http://bible.com/97/exo.32.14.msg

    Your plea may be what turns Gods wrath. He is always listening to what you have to say. The trouble we have is listening to Him, instead we choose to make stupid decisions based off of our feeble human brains.

  34. 5 Aaron saw how excited the people were, so he built an altar in front of the calf. Then he announced, “Tomorrow will be a festival to the LORD!

    How quickly one forgets who their God is. The materialistic stuff of this world easily excites people. The make them into idols and forget God. We should always be excited about God and when he brings to us. He provides and meets our daily needs.

  35. The magnitude of Israel’s rebellion against the holiness of God requires punishment. Though it may seem harsh to us today, God’s planed to destroy Israel and begin a new nation through Moses was a just response to their defiance. In an amazing act, Moses steps in as a mediator between God and the people to advert this judgment. He appeals to God’s name and glory. Moses does not want the Egyptians to have a reason to criticize God because of this judgment. Moses reminds God of the promise he made to Abraham and that he is a God who keeps his promises. Moses’ intercession does not fall on deaf ears. God relents. He punishes, but he does not destroy. Moses’ effort to advert the judgment of God is a picture of Jesus, the only true mediator between God and humanity, the one who has turned the judgment of God from us who deserves it, to himself (1 Ti 2:5). Even though he was angry and even threw the tablets of the commandments (vs 19) he still interceded for them. Jesus took the stripes and bore the death on the cross for us while we were in sin that we may may turn away and make intercession to him for others that they may turn to him also.

  36. 2 And Aaron said unto them, Break off the golden earrings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them unto me.

    Just the people having the earings, as for both men and women and also adding the fact that they can out of Egypt all points the fact that they were physically out of bondage but there hearts and minds were still imprisoned in Egypt. If you notice, they didn’t argue with Aaron about making themselves other Gods. The ways, the mindset and everything about them was all still with a slave mind set.

    If we allow the enemy to keep us captive in a place for an extended amount of time or we allow complacency to settle in our hearts we will slip into a slave mentality that is actually more dangerous than being completely in the world because we live in a false sense of reality that everything is good between us and God.

    Romans 12:2 NLT

    Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

  37. 11 And Moses besought the Lord his God, and said, Lord, why doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people, which thou hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a mighty hand?

    12 Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, and say, For mischief did he bring them out, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth? Turn from thy fierce wrath, and repent of this evil against thy people.

    Thanks be to God for the man of God in your life that is willing to step in the gap and pray and plead for the congregations sake. Im thankful for pastor
