    There is only one True living GOD. (1st John 5:7) For there are three that bear record in heaven the FATHER, the WORD and the HOLY SPIRIT: these three are one. Read John1:1; John 10:30 I and my Father are one. Matt 28:19; John 14:26.

    This is NOT a rebuke; simply a statement: Moses was not a Levite; his brother Aaron and his sons were; Aaron was the only one could go into the Holy of Holies. Moses was just a GREAT prophet and FRIEND of God.
  • Matt
    Moses was a ''type'' of Christ, not a god at all, period. He was a Levite, and was chosen to instruct the Israelites to worship God, and to prepare the way for our Savior. Jesus Christ, The Savior, is the only begotten Son of God: God Himself manifested in the flesh. The Prophet Moses wrote of in this chapter is Jesus. The Lord says this to the Pharisee Jews in John ch. 5: "for he wrote of Me."
