Wesley's Notes for Exodus 4:19


4:19 The Lord said unto Moses - This seems to have been a second vision, whereby God calls him to the present execution of the command given before.

    I read this many, many times, but I really SAW a different meaning to the ROD TURNING INTO A SNAKE. What do we do when we face our fears? We do just what Moses did-WE RUN! I CAN IMAGINE GOD TELLING MOSES TO FACE HIS GIANT/FEAR. HE EVIDENTLY CALLED HIM BACK AND TOLD HIM TO PICK UP HIS FEAR AND FACE IT, BECAUSE I AM GOING TO CHANGE THAT FEAR INTO A SITUATION YOU CAN HANDLE AS LONG AS YOU TRUST ME!!!

    Dewey, I really like your comments. The Scriptures are full of information letting us know how weak, sinful and cowardly we humans are yet the Heavenly Father "chooses " to see past this to the soul His Son died for. And though we are rebuked and even punished for what we do...as were the Patriots ...Examples: Judah, David, Solomon, etc... He still loves us and will work thru us for the benefit of those who love Jesus, keep His commandments and walk thru this world by faith.

    Evangelist Chatauna, you are correct according to Scripture because Acts 17:30,31 says, "And the times of this ignorance God winked at but now commadeth all men every where to repent: v31 Because he has appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead. We all know that man is Jesus Christ. God bless us all and also in the understanding of his Word. Praise God always through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen!
