Numbers 11

And when the people complained, it displeased the Lord: and the Lord heard it; and his anger was kindled; and the fire of the Lordburnt among them, and consumed them that were in the uttermost parts of the camp.

And the people cried unto Moses; and when Moses prayed unto the Lord, the fire was quenched.

And he called the name of the place Taberah: because the fire of the Lord burnt among them.

And the mixt multitude that was among them fell a lusting: and the children of Israel also wept again, and said, Who shall give us flesh to eat?

We remember the fish, which we did eat in Egypt freely; the cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and the garlick:

But now our soul is dried away: there is nothing at all, beside this manna, before our eyes.

And the manna was as coriander seed, and the colour thereof as the colour of bdellium.

And the people went about, and gathered it, and ground it in mills, or beat it in a mortar, and baked it in pans, and made cakes of it: and the taste of it was as the taste of fresh oil.

And when the dew fell upon the camp in the night, the manna fell upon it.

10 Then Moses heard the people weep throughout their families, every man in the door of his tent: and the anger of the Lord was kindled greatly; Moses also was displeased.

11 And Moses said unto the Lord, Wherefore hast thou afflicted thy servant? and wherefore have I not found favour in thy sight, that thou layest the burden of all this people upon me?

12 Have I conceived all this people? have I begotten them, that thou shouldest say unto me, Carry them in thy bosom, as a nursing father beareth the sucking child, unto the land which thou swarest unto their fathers?

13 Whence should I have flesh to give unto all this people? for they weep unto me, saying, Give us flesh, that we may eat.

14 I am not able to bear all this people alone, because it is too heavy for me.

15 And if thou deal thus with me, kill me, I pray thee, out of hand, if I have found favour in thy sight; and let me not see my wretchedness.

16 And the Lord said unto Moses, Gather unto me seventy men of the elders of Israel, whom thou knowest to be the elders of the people, and officers over them; and bring them unto the tabernacle of the congregation, that they may stand there with thee.

17 And I will come down and talk with thee there: and I will take of the spirit which is upon thee, and will put it upon them; and they shall bear the burden of the people with thee, that thou bear it not thyself alone.

18 And say thou unto the people, Sanctify yourselves against to morrow, and ye shall eat flesh: for ye have wept in the ears of the Lord, saying, Who shall give us flesh to eat? for it was well with us in Egypt: therefore the Lord will give you flesh, and ye shall eat.

19 Ye shall not eat one day, nor two days, nor five days, neither ten days, nor twenty days;

20 But even a whole month, until it come out at your nostrils, and it be loathsome unto you: because that ye have despised the Lordwhich is among you, and have wept before him, saying, Why came we forth out of Egypt?

21 And Moses said, The people, among whom I am, are six hundred thousand footmen; and thou hast said, I will give them flesh, that they may eat a whole month.

22 Shall the flocks and the herds be slain for them, to suffice them? or shall all the fish of the sea be gathered together for them, to suffice them?

23 And the Lord said unto Moses, Is the Lord‘S hand waxed short? thou shalt see now whether my word shall come to pass unto thee or not.

24 And Moses went out, and told the people the words of the Lord, and gathered the seventy men of the elders of the people, and set them round about the tabernacle.

25 And the Lord came down in a cloud, and spake unto him, and took of the spirit that was upon him, and gave it unto the seventy elders: and it came to pass, that, when the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied, and did not cease.

26 But there remained two of the men in the camp, the name of the one was Eldad, and the name of the other Medad: and the spirit rested upon them; and they were of them that were written, but went not out unto the tabernacle: and they prophesied in the camp.

27 And there ran a young man, and told Moses, and said, Eldad and Medad do prophesy in the camp.

28 And Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of Moses, one of his young men, answered and said, My lord Moses, forbid them.

29 And Moses said unto him, Enviest thou for my sake? would God that all the Lord‘S people were prophets, and that the Lord would put his spirit upon them!

30 And Moses gat him into the camp, he and the elders of Israel.

31 And there went forth a wind from the Lord, and brought quails from the sea, and let them fall by the camp, as it were a day’s journey on this side, and as it were a day’s journey on the other side, round about the camp, and as it were two cubits high upon the face of the earth.

32 And the people stood up all that day, and all that night, and all the next day, and they gathered the quails: he that gathered least gathered ten homers: and they spread them all abroad for themselves round about the camp.

33 And while the flesh was yet between their teeth, ere it was chewed, the wrath of the Lord was kindled against the people, and the Lord smote the people with a very great plague.

34 And he called the name of that place Kibrothhattaavah: because there they buried the people that lusted.

35 And the people journeyed from Kibrothhattaavah unto Hazeroth; and abode at Hazeroth.

    This passage has always been an eye opener… God provided the children of Israel everything they needed but ye they still grumbled. Lord help me to not grumble or complain… Sometimes we have to be a place(spiritually) for God to have our fill attention and depend solely on Him.

  2. 16And the LORD said unto Moses, Gather unto me seventy men of the elders of Israel, whom thou knowest to be the elders of the people, and officers over them; and bring them unto the tabernacle of the congregation, that they may stand there with thee. 17And I will come down and talk with thee there: and I will take of the spirit which is upon thee, and will put it upon them; and they shall bear the burden of the people with thee, that thou bear it not thyself alone.

    Even in the toughest of times, the trying times you will find refuge in the presence of the Lord. When you approach the altar of God he will come and meet you right where you are. Even though Moses was selected by God, he began to feel the pressure of trying to pastor several million people. Even the strongest men of God will buckle under the pressure with out a strong relationship with God.

    Seeking first the kingdom of God will allow us as ministers of the gospel to strengthen our spirits and move the kingdom forward. We have to allow God to help us help others. Live Jesus- Give Jesus.

  3. Stop craving to relive your pass . GOD delivered you from it why would you want to go back? And stop complaining and be thankful for what the LORD has given you and be thankful of what LORD has brought you out of

  4. God was clearly present with the Israelites. His pillar of cloud and fire led them. His manna fed them daily. But instead of being grateful they grumbled and complained. Moses was overwhelmed by trying to guide the people. He appointed 70 men to help him with the people after they received the spirit of the Lord. Our pastor also is supported with other ministers. Unfortunately there are probably some people today that grumble and complain. Being right with God today and you WILL have your needs met. God will provide for us today but we should be grateful and not complain.

  5. 5 We remember the fish, which we did eat in Egypt freely; the cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and the garlick:

    6 But now our soul is dried away: there is nothing at all, beside this manna, before our eyes.

    This chapter shows us that it is not good to complain. The Lord knows what we need and what is best for us. He knows where he is taking us in life. We should not look back and wish for the “good ole days”, but look to the Lord to provide our future.

  6. 34 And he called the name of that place Kibrothhattaavah: because there they buried the people that lusted.

    I didn’t know you could lust over food….

    Anyways i am thinking they desired the food more than they desired GOD…… whoa!!! Thanksgiving…….. did we desire the food more than we desire GOD??? HELP US LORD!!! Thank you JESUS!!!

  7. LIVE-GIVE JESUS
    PROPHESY

    29 And Moses said unto him, Enviest thou for my sake? would God that all the Lord‘S people were prophets, and that the Lord would put his spirit upon them!

    This is the Pastors desire. That everyone was FILLED with the SPIRIT of GOD and were Prophets. The SPIRIT of GOD is what gives us the knowledge of GOD to PROPHESY.

    False Prophets are the reason people fear the word prophesy. For centuries men have said GOD said and it was really man predicting or guessing. This fact has caused the confidence in true Prophets to waver and their words to fall to the ground.

    PROPHESY –
    transitive verb
    1 : to utter by or as if by divine inspiration
    2 : to predict with assurance or on the basis of mystic knowledge
    3 : PREFIGURE
    intransitive verb
    1 : to speak as if divinely inspired
    2 : to give instruction in religious matters : PREACH
    3 : to make a prediction

    We see that PROPHESY is a verb or “action” word. Meaning that there should be some movement. The trouble comes in when man says GOD said and then there is no movement. True PROPHESY is when man says GOD said and it happens. I am very prayerful about saying “GOD said”.

    For example:
    18 And say thou unto the people, Sanctify yourselves against to morrow, and ye shall eat flesh: for ye have wept in the ears of the Lord, saying, Who shall give us flesh to eat? for it was well with us in Egypt: therefore the Lord will give you flesh, and ye shall eat.

    31 And there went forth a wind from the Lord, and brought quails from the sea, and let them fall by the camp, as it were a day’s journey on this side, and as it were a day’s journey on the other side, round about the camp, and as it were two cubits high upon the face of the earth.

    If everyone would PROPHESY then everyone would know what GOD is saying to HIS people. But, to know what GOD is saying to HIS people we must LIVE JESUS so that we can GIVE JESUS.

  8. 23 And the Lord said unto Moses, Is the Lord‘S hand waxed short? thou shalt see now whether my word shall come to pass unto thee or not.

    How many times do we shorten the hand of God because of unbelief. We doubt so much that we miss out in great miracles that God can show us. We watch as other people receive their miracles but instead of rejoicing with them as we wait for ours, we become complainers like the people of Israel!! I have had so many miracles happen in my life and sometimes I have to remind myself of ALL HE HAS DONE FOR ME!! From the moment He pluck me out of the world and saved me, to the moment He healed me so many times, the moment He has provided Mana from heaven for my family, to the moment that He gifted me my husband baptized in Jesus Name and filled with the Holy Ghost, and living beyond what the doctors said I would live!! God is and ALWAYS will be a miracle working God, so don’t doubt His Ways are PERFECT, His timing is PERFECT, for He is PERFECT!! Next time you hear about a miracle get excited!!! Know that your miracle is coming, and REJOICE like it was your miracle that just happen and watch our GOD open up the windows of Heaven and pour out a BLESSING so big that you won’t be able to store it!!! Love our church POFW and our church family!!! Let’s watch the signs, wonders, and miracles that God will do!

  9. 1 And when the people complained, it displeased the Lord: and the Lord heard it; and his anger was kindled; and the fire of the Lordburnt among them, and consumed them that were in the uttermost parts of the camp.

    2 And the people cried unto Moses; and when Moses prayed unto the Lord, the fire was quenched.

    3 And he called the name of the place Taberah: because the fire of the Lord burnt among them.

    4 And the mixt multitude that was among them fell a lusting: and the children of Israel also wept again, and said, Who shall give us flesh to eat?

    5 We remember the fish, which we did eat in Egypt freely; the cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and the garlick:

    6 But now our soul is dried away: there is nothing at all, beside this manna, before our eyes.

    What once the people were thankful for, now a “spirit” of grumbling and complaining now has come into their spirit and they are no longer satisfied with the provision of the Lord. This angered the Lord. It caused them to lust after what they had back in Egypt, where the Lord delivered them from.

    It’s dangerous to allow a spirit of complaining to dwell in us. Some people complain about things that don’t amount to a hill of beans as the saying goes. It is a spirit that tries to embed itself within us. If we give into it, soon everything in life will displease us and we constantly speak complains and grumblings from our lips.

    This attitude brought dead to those who lusted after the former things. The same can happen to us. If we continually complain about things that we know longer do because of our christian lifestyle, that spirit will get a hold of us, and soon we will lust after it and it will bring death to our very Spirit man.

    Romans 7:18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.

    19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.

    20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.

    21 I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.

    22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:

    23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.

    24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

    25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.

  10. 22 Shall the flocks and the herds be slain for them, to suffice them? or shall all the fish of the sea be gathered together for them, to suffice them?
    23 And the Lord said unto Moses, Is the Lord‘S hand waxed short? thou shalt see now whether my word shall come to pass unto thee or not.

    sometimes we can get so caught up in our struggles and our problems that we forget how powerful and loving God really and truly is. It slips our mind that we were just delivered out of something that was seemingly impossible to anybody else’s perspective all because we can’t see past our own issues. It is important that every day we wake up and every day that we struggle that we remember the God that we served has everything under control and he knows what he’s doing. It seems simple but that doesn’t make it easy.

    Proverbs 3 trust in the Lord with all thy heart and lean not unto your own understanding, and all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy path.

    One of the easiest verses to remember but the hardest to follow. Your true faith is not tested until you come up against something that questions your faith. It is not when everything is going right it is when there is no way out that we truly see the power in the might of God

  11. 11:23 and the Lord said unto Moses, is the Lords hand waxed short?thou shall see now, wether the word I spoke come to pass unto thee or not.
    ———
    The moment you start speaking up those negative thought you started with ( walking in the flesh) is the moment you will start interfering with Gods will, and it will for sure take longer to see Gods plan come to pass.
    Keep walking soldier….
    Keep walking, God does not lack, he is not confused
    And his will is perfect.
    Hang there, and the Salvation of the Lord!!!!

  12. Numbers 11: 5-6 [Amp] We remember the fish we ate freely in Egypt and without cost, the cucumbers, melons, leeks, onions, and garlic.
    [6] But now our soul [ our strength] is dried up; there is nothing at all [ in the way of food] to be seen but this manna. Don’t grumble or complain or worry about what your eat or wear ! God knows what we need. And knows what we don’t need ! Love the Lord with all your heart and soul.

  13. 1 And when the people complained, it displeased the Lord: and the Lord heard it; and his anger was kindled; and the fire of the Lordburnt among them, and consumed them that were in the uttermost parts of the camp.

    They complained about what God was providing them to eat. He gave manna, they wanted meat. To me this is like complaining about the message God gives Pastor for the church. Complaining about what God has chosen for us to hear and learn. We cant allow grumbling and complaining to even get a foothold in our spirit.

  14. 19And it won’t be for just a day or two, or for five or ten or even twenty. 20You will eat it for a whole month until you gag and are sick of it. For you have rejected the LORD, who is here among you, and you have whined to him, saying, “Why did we ever leave Egypt?”’

    Most of us can eat left overs for two days, but eating it over and over, no thanks. Even though Israel saw miracle after miracle, they still found something to complain about. Be satisfied with what you have, and give thanks to God you have food on the table, and that you and your family are in good health.

    For God sees and hears your troubles and will provide for you when you least expect it.

    NASB Psalm 55:17 Evening and morning and at noon, I will complain and murmur, And He will hear my voice.

  15. Numbers 11:4-6 (NLT)
    4) Then the foreign rabble (disorderly crowd; mob) who were traveling with the Israelites began to crave the good things of Egypt. And the people of Israel also began to complain. Oh, for some meat! they exclaimed.
    5) We remember the fish we used to eat for free in Egypt. And we had all the cucumbers, melons, leeks, onions, and garlic we wanted.
    6) But now our appetites are gone. All we ever see is this manna!

    Hebrews 13:5-6 tells us, “5) Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. 6) So that we may boldly say, The LORD is my helper,…”

    The NLT & MSG versions says that they craved for, and the AMP version says they greedy desire for. In others words, they coveted after. To covet something, it means to wish for, to desire for, to crave for.
    The foreigners from Egypt, who traveled with the Israelites, had a conversation with the Israelites, and they began to covet (wish for, desire, crave) the good things back in Egypt, which lead the Israelites to complaining about the things they no longer had (yummy food), which lead to discontentment.
    It’s amazing how coveting (wishing for, desiring, craving) something leads to complaining, and how fast complaining catches on.

    Be careful who you talk to and what you talk about. Be content with the things you have (the things God has given you), Be ThANKFUL, and remember He will never leave you, nor forsake you. He is our Helper. He will supply all our need.

    Thank You JESUS!!

  16. When God said to Moses every first boy or girl well die
    And when the dew fell upon the camp in the night, the manna fell upon it.

  17. when the people complained it displeased the lord. and god allowed Moses to punish the people, but when the people looked upon the bronze snake they pleaded for forgiveness and god forgave them and in blessing, he gave them what they asked for, a feast.

  18. Verses 4-6 NLT “Then the foreign rabble who were traveling with the Israelites began to crave the good things of Egypt. And the people of Israel also began to complain. “Oh, for some meat!” they exclaimed. “We remember the fish we used to eat for free in Egypt. And we had all the cucumbers, melons, leeks, onions, and garlic we wanted. But now our appetites are gone. All we ever see is this manna!” Wow, be careful who you are encircling yourself with because their craving may not be or should NOT be your cravings. If you begin to listen to those cravings it may cost you much more than your appetite as the Israelites found out!

  19. Numbers 11
    Whiners in the Presence of God
    Serve the Lord with gladness .
    We sometimes forget to be thankful for what God truly has already given us. The children of Israel was being provided food daily yet it was not what they wanted to eat. There so much to be said about the provisions God gives us . Yet the people grumbled .
    They were continually consumed with what they did not have . Late last night I looked around me all the people with loaded carts of toys electronics some were filled to the brim . I’d walked in to find a pillow someone wanted but it was already gone. I could hear people complaining see people hustling . I walked out empty handed . When I arrived at my home I began to thank God for all He had given me .
    I felt so blessed . Maybe it comes with age maybe comes from knowing who God really is . Maybe comes from knowing that manna is more than enough ….I’m not sure . I wonder if the people had not grumbled and complained about what they were lacking would there have been a greater blessing waiting. I’ve learned be thankful for what you have T
    because God could be just testing you to see really where your heart is. If anything the Israelites should have been giving praise there was daily provisions.
    Today I give thanks for all You have done and given . Live Jesus Give Jesus just a bit more when the Israelites were grumbling could they have missed an opportunity they were wanting meat well God gave it be cautious what your appetite is craving . This world is not our home be patient in God’s timing .
    Even Moses doubted and God had to remind him .
    Sadly though the scripture says they ate the meat they were wanting and died . Whiners in the presence of God. Why not praises . Is God not enough does He truly know what we need ?
    No wonder Moses felt frustrated .

    Moses
    I can’t do this by myself—it’s too much, all these people. If this is how you intend to treat me, do me a favor and kill me. I’ve seen enough; I’ve had enough. Let me out of here.”

    God heard God does hear God has a plan keep following God keep following your Moses.

    God knows what He is doing . He will provide.
    He knows your needs

    This chapter is full of so much God begins to do that which Moses has asked and jealousy arose because someone else had just had a portion of the anointing poured on them again more grumbling.

    God is preparing for a great harvest . Moses said I cant do it by myself God is and will bring others to help . Thankfully some will reply others maybe jealousy will arise. In God ‘s plans of a harvest there will be more and more people who will be equipped and ready we must realize it’s God’s plan to help bring in the harvest …… whiners in the presence of God or praises . Live Give Jesus

    Numbers 11
    28 Joshua son of Nun, who had been Moses’ aide since youth, spoke up and said, “Moses, my lord, stop them!”

    29 But Moses replied, “Are you jealous for my sake? I wish that all the Lord’s people were prophets and that the Lord would put his Spirit on them!”

    There is room at the cross for you though many have come there still room for more there is room at the cross for you …. there is room at POFW !!!!!

  20. But Moses replied, “Are you jealous for my sake? I wish that all the Lord ’s people were prophets and that the Lord would put his Spirit upon them all!” Then Moses returned to the camp with the elders of Israel.
    Numbers 11:29‭-‬30 NLT
    https://bible.com/bible/116/num.11.29-30.NLT

    I totally get what Moses is saying here. If more people would operate in the Spirit it would take us as the Body of Christ to a whole new level! Thank You Jesus for leading us with Your Spirit. I thank You for the counsel and wisdom only You can give.

  21. 23 And the Lord said unto Moses, Is the Lord‘S hand waxed short? thou shalt see now whether my word shall come to pass unto thee or not.

    Sometimes God’s favor seems to good to be true, and for a second we forget He can do the impossible.
    I dont know why we would ever even doubt him.
    I pray I never forget who my Jesus is, that there is no one above Him or beside Him. He will never fail us!

  22. The people fell to grumbling over their hard life. God heard. When he heard his anger flared; then fire blazed up and burned the outer boundaries of the camp. The people cried out for help to Moses; Moses prayed to God and the fire died down. They named the place Taberah (Blaze) because fire from God had blazed up against them.

  23. 1 And when the people complained, it displeased the Lord: and the Lord heard it; and his anger was kindled; and the fire of the Lordburnt among them, and consumed them that were in the uttermost parts of the camp.

    God had done so much in and for Israel yet they still complained against Him.
    Likewise God has done so much for us. We should be reminded that our complaining hearts displease God, because it shows so little gratitude for what He has done in the past, and faith for what He can do right now. It shows Him where our hearts truly are. Let us be aware of what we complain about and, let us be thankful from where God has brought us out of. Thank you Jesus!!

  24. 1 And when the people complained, it displeased the Lord: and the Lord heard it; and his anger was kindled; and the fire of the Lordburnt among them, and consumed them that were in the uttermost parts of the camp.

    We must always remember that whenever life gets hard we must press on and not moan or complain because it will get us nowhere in life and it will only make bitter and hard. We should always let praise flow from of lips rather than complaining.

  25. Then the Lord said to Moses, “Has my arm lost its power? Now you will see whether or not my word comes true!”
    Numbers 11:23 NLT

    Never doubt and especially don’t complain! God is well able to supply your needs – the proof is in your breath! We don’t deserve such a love, yet He continues to love, keep, care, and provide for us. Thank You Jesus!

  26. Numbers 11:26
    But there remained two of the men in the camp….
    and the spirit rested upon them……and they prophesied in the camp.

    Hallelujah!!
    Praise God!

  27. 2 And the people cried unto Moses; and when Moses prayed unto the Lord, the fire was quenched.

    My God is a answerer to the prayers of his people. I thank God for his grace and mercy when I’m just not deserving of what he has to offer to me.

  28. 1 And when the people complained, it displeased the Lord: and the Lord heard it; and his anger was kindled; and the fire of the Lordburnt among them, and consumed them that were in the uttermost parts of the camp.
    2 And the people cried unto Moses; and when Moses prayed unto the Lord, the fire was quenched.
    3 And he called the name of the place Taberah: because the fire of the Lord burnt among them.
    Numbers 11:1-3

    Israel, having been ordered, organized, cleansed, separated, blessed, taught how to give, reminded of God’s deliverance, given God’s presence, and the tools to advance to the Promised Land, is now on the march to Canaan and immediately, the people complained.
    How can it be that a nation so blessed can still complain? God had done so much in and for Israel, yet they still murmur against Him. Of course, their circumstances were not easy but what sin it is for them to complain against God, wiping out the spirit of gratitude in their hearts!
    We aren’t even told here exactly what Israel was complaining about. Perhaps here, it is because their complaining is just that generally dissatisfied heart complaining not for any one great reason, but because that is where their hearts are.

    Our complaining hearts displease God, because it shows so little gratitude for what He has done in the past, and faith for what He can do right now.

  29. 1 And when the people complained, it displeased the Lord: and the Lord heard it; and his anger was kindled; and the fire of the Lordburnt among them, and consumed them that were in the uttermost parts of the camp. 2 And the people cried unto Moses; and when Moses prayed unto the Lord, the fire was quenched. 3 And he called the name of the place Taberah: because the fire of the Lord burnt among them. 4 And the mixt multitude that was among them fell a lusting: and the children of Israel also wept again, and said, Who shall give us flesh to eat?
    5 We remember the fish, which we did eat in Egypt freely; the cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and the garlick: 6 But now our soul is dried away: there is nothing at all, beside this manna, before our eyes.

    The Lord has set us apart. Even before we were conceived in our mother’s womb. We can easily forget what we were created to become and complain of what we don’t have and question the why’s to God. This is a reminder of what the Lord has removed us from to what we are in the progress to become! We must trust in the Lord. We must live Jesus so we can Give Jesus! To see all the wonders and miracles He has for us!

  30. “The rabble among them [who followed Israel from Egypt] had greedy desires [for familiar and delicious food], and the Israelites wept again and said, “Who will give us meat to eat?

    While the meat was still between their teeth, before it was chewed, the anger of the LORD was kindled against the people, and the LORD struck them with a very severe plague. So that place was named Kibroth-hattaavah (the graves of greediness), because there they buried the people who had been greedy [for more than the manna that God provided them].”
    ‭‭Numbers‬ ‭11:4, 33-34‬ ‭AMP‬‬

    Rabble is referring to the non-Israelites who joined the exodus. They had greedy desires to fulfill the lust of their bellies which carried over into the Israelites. And they began to complain about not having meat to eat and only having manna that God provided. Later in the chapter God gave them meat to eat but also struck them with a very severe plague. And it struck the ones who had been greedy and wanted more than the manna God provided them.

  31. Números 11: 18-2
    *Dios promete proveer carne para Israel.

    “Pero al pueblo dirás: santificaos para mañana, y comeréis carne; porque habéis llorado en oídos de Jehová, diciendo: ¡Quién nos diera a comer carne! ¡Ciertamente mejor nos iba en Egipto! Jehová, pues, os dará carne, y comeréis. No comeréis un día, ni dos días, ni cinco días, ni diez días, ni veinte días, sino hasta un mes entero, hasta que os salga por la narices, y las aborrezcáis, por cuanto menospreciasteis a Jehová que está en medio de vosotros, y llorasteis delante de él, diciendo: ¿para qué salimos acá de Egipto?”

    * ” Jehová, pues, os dará carne, y comeréis”
    Esto no era una bendición. Dios prometió responder el deseo del corazón de Israel; pero no en una manera que fuera una bendición para Israel. Algunas veces el Señor nos castiga al darnos lo que pedimos – porque estamos clamando y clamando intensamente.

    * “Hasta que os salga por las narices. y las aborrezcáis”
    Dios prometió darles tanta carne que se volverían enfermos por ella. Esto era porque ellos negaron y dudaron las bondades de la libertad de Dios.

    * Es peligroso para un cristiano entretener el pensamiento, “quisiera que nunca hubiera decidido seguir a Jesús. Me iba mejor en el mundo.
    ” Tales pensamientos, si vienen, deben ser puestos aparte inmediatamente. Nunca podemos negar o dudar la bondad de la liberación de Dios.

  32. 1 And when the people complained, it displeased the Lord: and the Lord heard it; and his anger was kindled; and the fire of the Lordburnt among them, and consumed them that were in the uttermost parts of the camp.

    2 And the people cried unto Moses; and when Moses prayed unto the Lord, the fire was quenched.

    This chapter shows the importance of having a man of God in your life that can go to the Lord on your behalf. Sometimes we can get so caught up in the sin in our life that we forget that God is watching and he will send judgment. Once he does, it will be to your advantage to have an advocate speak on your behalf . Our God is a jealous God, so putting anything or anyone before him will cause trouble for you.

  33. 1 And when the people complained, it displeased the Lord: and the Lord heard it; and his anger was kindled; and the fire of the Lordburnt among them, and consumed them that were in the uttermost parts of the camp.
    2 And the people cried unto Moses; and when Moses prayed unto the Lord, the fire was quenched.
    3 And he called the name of the place Taberah: because the fire of the Lord burnt among them.

    This always gets to me! After all that God has brought you through, and you have the nerve to complain. Most of The children of Israel would dead or almost dead and/or oppressed had they stayed in Egypt! God brought them out, He saved them and they then complained?!!??!? I see so many other people that do the same, “God saved me in this car accident,” or “He healed me from this sickness,” or “I’ve been delivered from this addiction,” and then to see those same people later in life complain and tell God what He needs to do to bring them out!!!??! I don’t understand how someone can be so demanding when your Saviour and King saved, healed, and delivered them out?? Yet I still have found myself complaining. . . Not to this extent, but it starts somewhere! Lord, help me to think before I speak. Help me to remember where and what you have brought me from. Let my words speak positivity rather than negativity! Let me be a true testament to the world.

  34. “And when the people complained, it displeased the Lord: and the Lord heard it; and his anger was kindled; and the fire of the Lord burnt among them, and consumed them that were in the uttermost parts of the camp.”
    ‭‭Numbers‬ ‭11:1‬ ‭KJV‬‬
    https://www.bible.com/1/num.11.1.kjv

    It’s best we don’t complain.
    Jesus has a reason for your season. Whether we understand what’s going on or not, we don’t need to pitch a fit. God has a plan for you. Gods got a plan for me, were right where we need to be.
    “Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.”
    ‭‭James‬ ‭1:3-4‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    That word perfect means mature, so Gods wanting to mature you. God wants to strengthen you, that’s why we’ve been dealt what we’ve been dealt. Being young in the Holy Ghost early on I would find myself getting so frustrated and angry because of the test and trials I was facing. I couldn’t understand why my test was hard and brother so and so was going through something I thought was easy. That was it though, God needed me to go through what I was going through so it wouldn’t be easy. Because anytime there’s resistance there’s strength being made!
    Count it great joy

  35. 1 And when the people complained, it displeased the Lord: and the Lord heard it; and his anger was kindled; and the fire of the Lordburnt among them, and consumed them that were in the uttermost parts of the camp.

    2 And the people cried unto Moses; and when Moses prayed unto the Lord, the fire was quenched.

    Complaining angers the Lord! We cannot fall into this trap. Let us understand and remember that everything comes from the Lord and while composing would be easy it’s not beneficial. Leaders see the problem then repairs the need.

  36. 17 And I will come down and talk with thee there: and I will take of the spirit which is upon thee, and will put it upon them; and they shall bear the burden of the people with thee, that thou bear it not thyself aloneness.

    We need to connect to our Pastor’s, spirit and let God lead us to what He has placed in our Pastor.

  37. 23 And the Lord said unto Moses, Is the Lord’S hand waxed short? thou shalt see now whether my word shall come to pass unto thee or not.

    God had listen to the Israelites complain, he had listen to Moses, and now his power was being questioned. Can you imagine what Gods facial expression must be. When we ask God for help, i think we question how far his hand can stretch, at least i do, and alot of times i sell myself short, because i underestimate how long his reach really is. Its infinant its incomparable and its absolutely unlimited.

  38. 1 And when the people complained, it displeased the Lord: and the Lord heard it; and his anger was kindled; and the fire of the Lordburnt among them, and consumed them that were in the uttermost parts of the camp.

    This should give us a lot of food for thought as we deal with things in our lives. How done react to situations? What is what comes out of our mouth?

  39. (And Moses said unto the Lord)

    Sometimes I think to myself and I’m being transparent; Jesus you already know my heart why do I have to tell you my problems or concerns,.
    BUT then the question comes to me BUT you tell me how much you love…

    Maybe it’s because when I tell God my issues it uncovers scares that I don’t want to deal with.
    God wants all of us 💛

    Or because I’m being lazy💥

    Communication is the transfer of information from one place to another.

    The act of communicating not only helps to meet your needs, but it also helps you to be connected in your relationship.

    Numbers 11:23 KJV
    [23] And the Lord said unto Moses, Is the Lord’s hand waxed short? thou shalt see now whether my word shall come to pass unto thee or not.

    Satan doesn’t care how he gets me, as long as he can get 1 tiny seed inside the boundaries of what God is set for us that’s why there’s borders and boundaries.

    The silent tragedy of a beautiful butterfly that never spreads her transparent wings because she doesn’t see the strength that transparency has through her covering from God and Pastor.

    Conversation with God is unmeasurable
    and always wanted He wants unrestricted relationship with His children (ME)

    The covering of God unmeasurable walk ye in it….

    Pastor Watts covering from God unmeasurable.
    That’s why we pray for Pastor Watts

    Pastor Watts covering only as measured as I allow there’s no room for me to tell God dimensions of where I want covering from Pastor, I want all the covering I can get in Jesus Name

    Conversation with Pastor Watts unmeasurable.

    Proverbs 27:17 KJV
    [17] Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.

    -me trying to cover myself; NARROW-
    Isaiah 28:20 KJV
    [20] For the bed is shorter than that a man can stretch himself on it : and the covering narrower than that he can wrap himself in it .

    -Covering of Moses and Aaron; God-
    Exodus 16:4-6 KJV
    [4] Then said the Lord unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no.
    5] And it shall come to pass, that on the sixth day they shall prepare that which they bring in; and it shall be twice as much as they gather daily.
    6] And Moses and Aaron said unto all the children of Israel, At even, then ye shall know that the Lord hath brought you out from the land of Egypt:

    Psalm 34:1 KJV
    [1] I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

    Exercise of Faith

    Proverbs 15:32-33 KJV
    [32] He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding. [33] The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility.

    Romans 10:17 KJV
    [17] So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

  40. Numbers 11:4-9

    Numbers 11:4-9 King James Version (KJV)

    4 And the mixt multitude that was among them fell a lusting: and the children of Israel also wept again, and said, Who shall give us flesh to eat?

    5 We remember the fish, which we did eat in Egypt freely; the cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and the garlick:

    6 But now our soul is dried away: there is nothing at all, beside this manna, before our eyes.

    7 And the manna was as coriander seed, and the colour thereof as the colour of bdellium.

    8 And the people went about, and gathered it, and ground it in mills, or beat it in a mortar, and baked it in pans, and made cakes of it: and the taste of it was as the taste of fresh oil.

    9 And when the dew fell upon the camp in the night, the manna fell upon it.

    The Danger of Getting What We want:
    Success can be defined as getting what you want. But happiness is wanting what you get.
    We often get the two confused.

    God’s people of old did, and so do we.
    The Israelites were certainly successful and got what they wanted — freedom from slavery and oppression in Egypt; the powerful promise of God’s guiding presence. But they were downright miserable in that they did not want what they got — the loss of the familiar, a strange new way of life, the disappearance of stability and security.

    At least in Egypt the trains ran on time, if you will. Here in the desert there weren’t even any trains. At least in Egypt they had their McDonalds. Here in the wilderness they had to stomach God’s strange food.
    So intent had God’s people been on getting what they wanted that they could not imagine not wanting what they got. Their success made them miserable.

  41. 1 And when the people complained, it displeased the Lord: and the Lord heard it; and his anger was kindled; and the fire of the Lordburnt among them, and consumed them that were in the uttermost parts of the camp.

    2 And the people cried unto Moses; and when Moses prayed unto the Lord, the fire was quenched.

    3 And he called the name of the place Taberah: because the fire of the Lord burnt among them.

    Complaining doesn’t get us anywhere, when you have Jesus and his love within you, you are greatful for everything. It’s not our plan it’s his plan, we are only here to spread his love and word! Jesus knows our heart but you have to speak his word as well, you can’t have a weak mentality. Jesus can move mountains, and this is what we want to speak of.

  42. 1 And when the people complained, it displeased the Lord: and the Lord heard it; and his anger was kindled; and the fire of the Lordburnt among them, and consumed them that were in the uttermost parts of the camp.
    2 And the people cried unto Moses; and when Moses prayed unto the Lord, the fire was quenched.

    Attitude is not quite everything, but it sure is close.

    All too often people loose sight of the blessings that Jesus has placed in their lives. I am guilty too. Usually, I catch it when He smites my heart with a strong rebuke. Unfortunately I don’t always catch it, and neither do many others.

    But Thank You Jesus, for a man of God in my life who prays for me as well as many others too.

    Moses attitude allowed him access to God when He was angered. We could all take notes of this and keep our attitudes in check as we reach for the souls around us.

  43. We shouldn’t complain about our blessings. God often takes care of us in ways we ask for, but don’t expect. He might meet our needs differently than we expected Or wanted so we complain. This is something he does not like in the least bit. We have to maintain an attitude of gratitude when we have the unexpected things that arise or when God chooses his way to do things instead of our own.

  44. 1 And when the people complained, it displeased the Lord: and the Lord heard it; and his anger was kindled; and the fire of the Lordburnt among them, and consumed them that were in the uttermost parts of the camp.
    2 And the people cried unto Moses; and when Moses prayed unto the Lord, the fire was quenched.
    3 And he called the name of the place Taberah: because the fire of the Lord burnt among them.

    A point that stood out in this chapter is where the people begin to complain about the conditions they were facing. It is worth noting that one translation stated they it was a bitter compliant– when you translate this into the Hebrew it indicates Evil – so essentially it was a bitter complaint that constituted to evil complaining. The word bitter is rooted in evil, so I imagine it was perhaps a very demonstrative form of complaining done with anger and perhaps a strong rage.

    It was the instruction of God that these people were to follow, it was a journey instituted by God that was to be fulfilled. Yet in these elements due to the circumstance they begin to complain and grip bitterly about this transition. The goodness of God, the plan of God was masked with the elements they faced. It was a positive transition that was meant for the good of the people but the elements distracted the people into bitter complaining.

    I’d say it would be a fair assessment that even today within our own ranks we still face issues similar to these. When God has good intention towards us, when we are to progress in a deeper form with him and things get clouded, and the clouds hang low, we CANNOT lose the purpose and intention. May we be sensitive to God, and trust him, may he show us the road we must take and not deviate from it. Our faith must be anchored in him, our hope cannot be distracted by the NOW moment yet may it be said we passed through the fire but we held to that nailed scared hand.

    As the writer said –
    For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
    3 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus or Lord.

    What a great God we serve.

  45. 5 We remember the fish, which we did eat in Egypt freely; the cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and the garlick:

    Genesis 19:26
    But Lot’s wife looked back as she was following behind him, and she turned into a pillar of salt

    You can take the Israelites out of Egypt but you can’t take Egypt out of Israelites!

    Just like Lots wife, you can have heart on safe ground and your heart be tied in the things of the world. Who do we pretend to fool? God? Church folk?

    What benefit does it do us to persist in such state knowing we could be living in the fullness of God will?
