Numbers 14

1 And all the congregation lifted up their voice, and cried; and the people wept that night.

2 And all the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron: and the whole congregation said unto them, Would God that we had died in the land of Egypt! or would God we had died in this wilderness!

3 And wherefore hath the Lord brought us unto this land, to fall by the sword, that our wives and our children should be a prey? were it not better for us to return into Egypt?

4 And they said one to another, Let us make a captain, and let us return into Egypt.

5 Then Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before all the assembly of the congregation of the children of Israel.

6 And Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of them that searched the land, rent their clothes:

7 And they spake unto all the company of the children of Israel, saying, The land, which we passed through to search it, is an exceeding good land.

8 If the Lord delight in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it us; a land which floweth with milk and honey.

9 Only rebel not ye against the Lord, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the Lord is with us: fear them not.

10 But all the congregation bade stone them with stones. And the glory of the Lord appeared in the tabernacle of the congregation before all the children of Israel.

11 And the Lord said unto Moses, How long will this people provoke me? and how long will it be ere they believe me, for all the signs which I have shewed among them?

12 I will smite them with the pestilence, and disinherit them, and will make of thee a greater nation and mightier than they.

13 And Moses said unto the Lord, Then the Egyptians shall hear it, (for thou broughtest up this people in thy might from among them;)

14 And they will tell it to the inhabitants of this land: for they have heard that thou Lord art among this people, that thou Lord art seen face to face, and that thy cloud standeth over them, and that thou goest before them, by day time in a pillar of a cloud, and in a pillar of fire by night.

15 Now if thou shalt kill all this people as one man, then the nations which have heard the fame of thee will speak, saying,

16 Because the Lord was not able to bring this people into the land which he sware unto them, therefore he hath slain them in the wilderness.

17 And now, I beseech thee, let the power of my lord be great, according as thou hast spoken, saying,

18 The Lord is longsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation.

19 Pardon, I beseech thee, the iniquity of this people according unto the greatness of thy mercy, and as thou hast forgiven this people, from Egypt even until now.

20 And the Lord said, I have pardoned according to thy word:

21 But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord.

22 Because all those men which have seen my glory, and my miracles, which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have tempted me now these ten times, and have not hearkened to my voice;

23 Surely they shall not see the land which I sware unto their fathers, neither shall any of them that provoked me see it:

24 But my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed me fully, him will I bring into the land whereinto he went; and his seed shall possess it.

25 (Now the Amalekites and the Canaanites dwelt in the valley.) Tomorrow turn you, and get you into the wilderness by the way of the Red sea.

26 And the Lord spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying,

27 How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, which murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me.

28 Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the Lord, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you:

29 Your carcases shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward which have murmured against me.

30 Doubtless ye shall not come into the land, concerning which I sware to make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun.

31 But your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, them will I bring in, and they shall know the land which ye have despised.

32 But as for you, your carcases, they shall fall in this wilderness.

33 And your children shall wander in the wilderness forty years, and bear your whoredoms, until your carcases be wasted in the wilderness.

34 After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise.

35 I the Lord have said, I will surely do it unto all this evil congregation, that are gathered together against me: in this wilderness they shall be consumed, and there they shall die.

36 And the men, which Moses sent to search the land, who returned, and made all the congregation to murmur against him, by bringing up a slander upon the land,

37 Even those men that did bring up the evil report upon the land, died by the plague before the Lord.

38 But Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of the men that went to search the land, lived still.

39 And Moses told these sayings unto all the children of Israel: and the people mourned greatly.

40 And they rose up early in the morning, and gat them up into the top of the mountain, saying, Lo, we be here, and will go up unto the place which the Lord hath promised: for we have sinned.

41 And Moses said, Wherefore now do ye transgress the commandment of the Lord? but it shall not prosper.

42 Go not up, for the Lord is not among you; that ye be not smitten before your enemies.

43 For the Amalekites and the Canaanites are there before you, and ye shall fall by the sword: because ye are turned away from the Lord, therefore the Lord will not be with you.

44 But they presumed to go up unto the hill top: nevertheless the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and Moses, departed not out of the camp.

45 Then the Amalekites came down, and the Canaanites which dwelt in that hill, and smote them, and discomfited them, even unto Hormah.

  1. Praise the LORD from Khamphange Phet, Thailand

    We are between services here on Friday afternoon. I want to thank each of you for praying for us and we sincerely appreciate those that are fasting on our behalf. Sis. Watts and I are eternally thankful for your support.

    I am asking for those that are able to pray specifically for me as I preach here on Saturday morning from 10:40am to 11:20am that will be 9:40pm to 10:20pm on Friday in Fort Worth.

    I believe GOD has instructed me to Build FAITH for the Healing service preached by Bro. David Smith on Saturday Night and the Holy Ghost crusade preached by Bro. Jack Cunningham on Sunday morning. Thank you for your prayers.

    GOD willing we will join in the Sunday PM service at The POFW for a brief testimony. We look forward to hearing the great reports from The POFW as well as sharing the reports from here in Thailand.

    Bless you all in JESUS name.

    Love and Prayers,
    Pastor and SIs, Watts

  2. THE INFLUENCE OF A NEGATIVE CONGREGATION

    1 And all the congregation lifted up their voice, and cried; and the people wept that night.
    2 And all the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron: and the whole congregation said unto them, Would God that we had died in the land of Egypt! or would God we had died in this wilderness!
    3 And wherefore hath the Lord brought us unto this land, to fall by the sword, that our wives and our children should be a prey? were it not better for us to return into Egypt?
    4 And they said one to another, Let us make a captain, and let us return into Egypt.
    5 Then Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before all the assembly of the congregation of the children of Israel.

    What does the congregation say?

    This was one of the most profound prophetic messages that I have heard preached by Bro. Greg Godwin in the past 27 years.

    Joshua and Caleb had all the FAITH, but the congregation had the influence.

    It is possible to underestimate the power of a congregation. It is the body of Christ that moves mountains and also the body of Christ that wonders aimlessly in the wilderness.

    Following the voice of the LORD is so much more important than following the crowd. The congregation criticized what they could not understand. We must prayerfully approach change. We must approach opportunities from JESUS with eyes wide open in FAITH.

    The congregation exercised their influence to their own destruction. May this provide a lesson to us, that even though we may not understand, we are safer to follow GOD called, GOD sent Leadership and not risk dying in the wilderness.

    Choose FAITH today, believe and expect GOD to work on our behalf.

  3. In reading this chapter, one has to wonder “What would have happened if the people would have just believed and trusted not only the report of Caleb and Joshua; but, trusted that the Lord was with them and had already promised them this land???” Sometimes it may be hard to step out and go against the crowd; but, we must be bold and be strong in the Lord. Joshua 1:9 CEV says “I’ve commanded you to be strong and brave. Don’t ever be afraid or discouraged! I am the Lord your God, and I will be there to help you wherever you go.”

  4. 45 Then the Amalekites came down, and the Canaanites which dwelt in that hill, and smote them, and discomfited them, even unto Hormah.

    For the wages of sin is death…. Be sure your sins will find you out. Yes the Lird is gracious but he is a terrible God and a jealous God. He is my all my everything.

  5. 27 How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, which murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me.

    28 Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith the Lord, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I do to you:

    29 Your carcases shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward which have murmured against me.

    30 Doubtless ye shall not come into the land, concerning which I sware to make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun.

    The children, God’s children. What can I say about it. Two out of all the ones God brought out of Egypt had the faith. All the rest spoke against God. I mean they wanted to stone Moses and Aaron. I know that I went through my wilderness, as most of us have. I’m starting to get to that clearing, but there is still work to be done. Don’t be like the children of Israel and fall by the wayside. Sin is sin and that road only leads to death. God is full of mercy and love. All that needs to be done is to seek him out. Live by his commandments and statutes. He is an awesome God, a mighty God, HALLELUJAH!!!!!! Shout it and see a Godly smile come upon your face…….God bless…Amen!!

  6. Our prayers can change God’s mind.

    20 And the Lord said, I have pardoned according to thy word:

    Parents, how many times are we to forgive our children; seventy times seven? Parental love is supposed to be an inherent emotion; is it though? An incalculable investment of money, wear and tear on our bodies and minds and nearly every waking and sleeping thought are spent on our children. Yet, a great portion of our conversation with them is spent in conflict. Pick up your toys, take a bath, and don’t hit your sister. They get older the issues become more serious; don’t speed, be home by curfew that person is not a good choice to be your friend.

    Ephesians 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Our real struggles are not flesh and blood struggles; they are spiritual struggles. Spiritual struggles must be fought spiritually.

    Prayer helps us focus on what is truly important in the lives of our children. Daily life often directs our thinking toward earthly goals for our children. Fervent prayer focuses our thoughts on what is truly important. As we focus on the Lord, our goals for our children are more in line with God’s goals for our children.

  7. 6 And Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of them that searched the land, rent their clothes:
    7 And they spake unto all the company of the children of Israel, saying, The land, which we passed through to search it, is an exceeding good land.
    8 If the Lord delight in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it us; a land which floweth with milk and honey.
    9 Only rebel not ye against the Lord, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the Lord is with us: fear them not.

    The only two leaders besides Moses and Aaron!!!
    Out of how many people!?!

    10 But all the congregation bade stone them with stones. And the glory of the Lord appeared in the tabernacle of the congregation before all the children of Israel.

    It is soooo typical of man to rebel against the TRUTH and totally be fine with it!!! So blind to the truth that they didn’t even realize just how rebellious they were!!!

    As soon as we are taken out of our comfort zone we tend to sit and ponder on how it was so good before AND IT IS A TOTAL AND COMPLETE LIE OF the enemy. There is ALWAYS ROOM FOR GROWTH, TO LEARN, TO SEEK MORE OF GOD AND TO REPENT!!! Most likely that If we are comfortable then we are not growing, we are stuck!!!

  8. 12 I will smite them with the pestilence, and disinherit them, and will make of thee a greater nation and mightier than they.

    19 Pardon, I beseech thee, the iniquity of this people according unto the greatness of thy mercy, and as thou hast forgiven this people, from Egypt even until now.

    20 And the Lord said, I have pardoned according to thy word:

    We must be carful to obey God and not complain because we cannot count on someone else to plead our case or stand in the gap for us.

  9. 18 God, slow to get angry and huge in loyal love,
    forgiving iniquity and rebellion and sin;
    Still, never just whitewashing sin…

    What a God we serve!

  10. Numbers 14:21
    But as truly as I live all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the lord.

    We must be filled with the glory of the Lord for we would be lost without him as long as we live we must have the glory of the lord in us. Grow with Jesus Amen

  11. You Got To Have FAITH

    Numbers 14:29-30, “Your carcases shall fall in this wilderness; and all that were numbered of you, according to your whole number, from twenty years old and upward, which have murmured against me, Doubtless ye shall not come into the land, concerning which I sware to make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun.”

    Heb. 3:17-19 says, “But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness? And to whom sware he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not? So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.”

    The murmurers, complainers, the doubters, and unbelievers did not enter into the promise land, but died in the wilderness because of their sin and unbelief. But Caleb and Joshua did enter into the promise land because of their faith in God.

    You Got To Have FAITH in order to Please God!

  12. 24 But my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed me fully, him will I bring into the land whereinto he went; and his seed shall possess it.
    caleb was blessed by God because of his different spirit he had a spirit of hope the spirit of faith a spirit in believing God to do what seemed impossible. As a result got on his face and allowed him to be only one of two over the age of 20 that lived. The power of faith is important. God honors faith God honors hope and God honors those who believe in His Word and in His promises

  13. 24 But my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed me fully, him will I bring into the land whereinto he went; and his seed shall possess it.

    God was looking for someone who would follow him whole heartedly, and because Caleb did exactly that he was blessed. I believe today God is looking for someone to no longer live half heartedly but to pick up their life and live for God with their whole heart!! Lord place in us a desire to always give our all to you!!

  14. The Lord is longsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation.

    The Lord has mercy on us all though we may not deserve it all time but our God is a forgiving God, he’s done great things for us and sometimes we forget to thank him for that!!

  15. 3“Why is the LORD taking us to this country only to have us die in battle? Our wives and our little ones will be carried off as plunder! Wouldn’t it be better for us to return to Egypt?” 4 Then they plotted among themselves, “Let’s choose a new leader and go back to Egypt!”

    The people had lost all faith and trust in Moses, Aaron and in God. They were rebellious against Moses. They wanted a new leader, they did not want nothing to do with God anymore. Even though they saw miracle after miracle, the people continued to have a slave mentally. We have to continue to grow our relationship with God daily, and not allow a slave mentally to engage us.

  16. In this chapter, there is a great warning about murmurings and complaining. We all have done it on our journey in Christ Jesus but be quick to recognize and repent plead the blood of the Lamb and move on trusting who resides in your heart to prune his vessel. Love God and press forward to the mark of destiny he has for you. He makes all things “NEW”, and brings everything to “his glory” to those who loves him. “Don’t let go!”

  17. 3 And wherefore hath the Lord brought us unto this land, to fall by the sword, that our wives and our children should be a prey? were it not better for us to return into Egypt?

    God was angry because the Israelite’s sinned and rebelled against God over the promised land. Decisions were made and correction was made to lives that would choose to go back to Egypt. All this was caused because people who came back from scouting the land had bad reports, except for 2 people. God corrects those that need correction. Be careful with what you say and who you say it to because God will not stand for murmuring especially when it come to his anointed.

  18. Numbers 14:43

    43 When you face the Amalekites and Canaanites in battle, you will be slaughtered. The Lord will abandon you because you have abandoned the Lord.”

    The people walked away from God. They abandoned him. Not physically but definitely in their hearts. They forgot the mighty things he had done for them and his provision.

    God said because they abandoned me I’ll abandon them. He doesn’t turn his back first We do. He is true to his word that says he will never leave or forsake us.

  19. 24 But my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed me fully, him will I bring into the land whereinto he went; and his seed shall possess it.

    Celeb followed God with his whole heart and was rewarded for his obedience , the question is are we even willingly to be while heated in are commitment to obey God

  20. The spirit of Caleb

    7 And they spake unto all the company of the children of Israel, saying, The land, which we passed through to search it, is an exceeding good land.

    When the majority has a spirit of defeat the Champion has a spirit of victory. Joshua and Caleb spirit allowed them to tap into blessings that others couldn’t have. Champions do not let their sight destroy their promise.

  21. the Lord delight in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it us; a land which floweth with milk and honey.

    9 Only rebel not ye against the Lord, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the Lord is with us: fear them not.
    Don’t forgot Gods promised, he will get us out of this land. This world is not my home. I’m just passing thru! Hallelujah! When doubt and fear try to come over me, I’m going to command it to leave, God is going to fulfill his promise if we live a righteous life!

  22. 2 And all the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron: and the whole congregation said unto them, Would God that we had died in the land of Egypt! or would God we had died in this wilderness!

    Oh be careful little mouth what you say …… the power of life and death is in your tongue. These men murmured and complained and because of what they said, and how they said it, they died wandering in the wilderness and never received their promise of a land that flowed with milk and honey.

    Many times we say things without thinking but we are declaring life or death without paying attention to that fact. This could cause us to miss out on our greatest blessings, as well as our destiny.

  23. 8 If the Lord delight in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it us; a land which floweth with milk and honey.

    The Lord will provide us with an overflowing if we believe in him and if we believe he will push us past the giants of the lands we are overcoming to get there! There is a lot of obstacles in our way towards getting to our new church, but God will make a way for us if we trust in him!

  24. 14-21
    Forgiveness or no there is a price to pay for wrong.doing .Our sins even.God forgives us.have built in consequences too. Don’t mistake Israel’s years of.wilderness wandering as.punshmit . They.are consequences. No generation unable to trust God enough to obey could succeed in conquering the Promise Land . The unbelief and rebellion of the Exodus generation disqualify them as conquered even though God forgave there sins .
    Following God wholeheartedly brings great reward.
    Failure to obey God reveals.a.lack of.faith.in.God.

  25. What does it take for people to just believe that God exist? Miracles happen everyday and just ones being says God exist ! What must I do to have that relationship. John soliz

  26. 44 But they presumed to go up unto the hill top: nevertheless the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and Moses, departed not out of the camp.
    45 Then the Amalekites came down, and the Canaanites which dwelt in that hill, and smote them, and discomfited them, even unto Hormah.

    They missed their opportunity and trying to obey after its all said and done would not change Gods judgement. Words were spoken that could not be taken back. They were going to die as God said for their murmuring and complaining. We must be so careful what we say in moments of frustration and times of not understanding… Trusting God to have our backs not matter what comes our way.

  27. 8) if the lord delight in us then he will bring us into this land and give it us which flowers with milk and honey

    9) only rebel not yet against the lord neither fear ye the people of the land for they are bread for us their defence is departed from them and the lord is with us fear them not

  28. 2 And all the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron: and the whole congregation said unto them, Would God that we had died in the land of Egypt! or would God we had died in this wilderness!

    The grass is always greener on the other side. I’m sure when they were being whipped by the Egyptians they were saying they wished they were in the wilderness. Being content in the Lord has nothing to do with our circumstances.

  29. iLove to grow in the Word

    20 And the Lord said, I have pardoned according to thy word:

    The relationship that God had with Moses was amazing. The Word of God declares that Moses made intercession for the people of God and God listened. That is powerful because when we’re in right relationship with Jesus, we have the same potential.

  30. v2 And all the children of Israel murmered against Moses and against Aaron: and the whole congregation said unto them, Would God that we had died in the land of Egypt! or would God we had died in this wilderness!

    A godly leader must not be thin skin but have a soft heart and tough skin,because
    the negative words and the stones are coming.
    Thank GOD Moses had a better plan by leaving it with GOD.

    ” Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of all them” Psalm 34:19

  31. 37 Even those men that did bring up the evil report upon the land, died by the plague before the Lord.

    38 But Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of the men that went to search the land, lived still.

    God doesn’t like for his people to cause eachother to stumble. Joshua and Caleb were right to convince them that it was good, but the poison had already set in. WE MUST KEEP OUR NEGATIVE THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS TO OURSELF, WE NEVER KNOW WHO IS LISTENING!

    HELP ME JESUS NOT TO BE NEGATIVE AND CAUSE ANYONE TO STUMBLE AND FALL!

  32. “But they wouldn’t listen. They still went up toward the high hill country. They went up even though Moses didn’t move from the camp. They went even though the ark of the Lord’s covenant didn’t move from the camp. Then the Amalekites and Canaanites who lived in that hill country came down. They attacked the people of Israel. They won the battle over them. They chased them all the way to Hormah.”
    ‭‭Numbers‬ ‭14:44-45‬ ‭NIRV‬‬

    After the Lord had spoken they still didn’t listen. I pray that we would be obedient to God and to the man of God. And that we would follow the leading of the man of God. If we choose our own will for our lives that will led to destruction.

  33. 20 And the Lord said, I have pardoned according to thy word:

    Not many people do or even will attempt to do this. Here we see that not only did the Man of God try to get God to calm down, by also got him to pardon them bum n

    U

  34. “But they presumed to go up unto the hill top: nevertheless the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and Moses, departed not out of the camp.” The word of God (Jesus) was clear that they would be on their own. One must be mindful of ones actions, for one could be going without God. Dear God, awaken us (me) and forgive us (me) of our (my) ways, if they are unpleasing too you; so that we (I) do not go or do without you. May God Bless America, Israel, Jerusalem, and you all in Jesus name, Amen!

  35. “Then Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before all the assembly of the congregation of the children of Israel.” The Lord heard all that was said, as did everyone, too include Moses and Aaron. However instead of arguing and fighting, Moses and Aaron showed all differently. God help us that our actions might also show others differently, in Jesus name.

  36. 27 How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, which murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me.

    God hates whiners and complainers

    Its so incredible that, this story has repeated it self in our lives many times. God has been so merciful and has been our miracle worker, our healer, our savior, our help, our consoler, time and time again and we still have the audacity to doubt His faithfulness and ability.

    Yet He still in His mercy extends his hand of grace toward us and pulls us out of our mess.

    Lets have a prayer that just gives God the praise and thanks He deserves and not complain or ask for anything. Might bring your miracle.

  37. 36 And the men, which Moses sent to search the land, who returned, and made all the congregation to murmur against him, by bringing up a slander upon the land,

    37 Even those men that did bring up the evil report upon the land, died by the plague before the Lord.

    38 But Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of the men that went to search the land, lived still.

    What report are you giving to the congregation? Remember that God knows the intent of the heart. We shall beleive the report of the Lord. Lets not complain or murmur…. After all this time it would be really sad to die in the wilderness so close to obtaining the promise.

  38. God spared their lives because of Moses’ prayer and appeal to reason. If God would have killed them, the nations of the Earth would have saw God as weak. In order to preserve his name. He let them die through natural causes until the naysayers were dead.

  39. Instead of grumbling and focusing solely on the negative, we should stay positive and press through the trials we are brought through.
    In my psychology class it has been shown that people who think positively actually perform better in tasks than those who doubt themselves. We can find strength in God. He has brought us through trials before and it states that He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Trust in God!

  40. Be careful in what you speak!

    And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, How long will this evil congregation murmur against Me? I have heard the complaints the Israelites murmur against Me. Tell them, As I live, says the Lord, what you have said in My hearing I will do to you: (‭Numbers‬ ‭14‬:‭26-28‬ AMP)

    The word of The Lord is true. As said many times before we keep ourselves from being and living in the blessings of GOD.
    Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. (‭Proverbs‬ ‭18‬:‭21‬ KJV)

  41. 6 And Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of them that searched the land, rent their clothes:

    7 And they spake unto all the company of the children of Israel, saying, The land, which we passed through to search it, is an exceeding good land.

    8 If the Lord delight in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it us; a land which floweth with milk and honey.

    9 Only rebel not ye against the Lord, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the Lord is with us: fear them not.

  42. In his intercession for the Israelites, Moses cites the very nature of God -his forgiveness, love and slowness to anger- as he pleads with God not to destroy them. He uses Gods own words to reason with him (Ex 34:6-7). Yet even Moses recognizes that Gods forgiveness will not erease the consequences of sin (Nu 14:18). God confirms this in his response. He honors Moses’ request to spare the lives of the Israelites, but at the same time he specifies consequences for their rebellious behavior. It is tempting to ask God to save us from our own sins. Although, he will forgive us if we repent, he loves us too much to let us live consequence-free lives. Just as parents discipline their full potential, so God allows life’s lessons to help us become all that we may be in him.

  43. “Then Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before all the assembly of the congregation of the children of Israel. And Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of them that searched the land, rent their clothes:”

    Only four. Out of all those people only four sought to have God’s sake at. Be the four!

  44. 11 And the Lord said unto Moses, How long will this people provoke me? and how long will it be ere they believe me, for all the signs which I have shewed among them?

    Wow!!!!! How long? Just the fact that you are breathing should be enough for you to believe in God…. God gives us opportunities MANY to live for Him. I’m just glad He has so much mercy for us that we are able to be more than conquerors… Jesus is the way to go to heaven and yet we sometimes act like hell adding for reals!!!! Jesus give me the wisdom and knowledge to continue your path
