    Verse 12: Jehovah God can hear any murmuring against his spokesmen and he takes such murmuring personal.
  • A disciple
    What stands out as extraordinary in the character and behavior of the people? These special and favored people saw all of God's mighty works done right before their eyes; and yet they could not find a way to receive His Spirit, repent and be converted, and become His loving obedient children! Our generation has had the Bible, and all of history testifying to us: but where is the fruit?
  • IMMANUEL MOSES
    Albeit God given his heavenly blessings, we often tend to testify him for mundane things, we trailed ourselves, God always blessed us in ample manner, we need to know where we are lacking.
